Les Berman; The Power of The Blue Medallion (giveaway)





















Synopsis


This Captivating novel follows the wild adventures of three charismatic young aliens from the distant planet Hebutar, and their companion on Earth. Zytor, the son of the ruler of Hebutar, is determined to stop a group of terrorists from causing chaos in the United States. Against his father’s wishes, Zytor travels to Earth and meets a young girl, Tandy, whose father was killed by terrorists. Zytor’s sister Phelena, a Captain in 
the Hebutarian Military and a fellow soldier, are dispatched by her father to bring Zytor back to Hebutar before he mingles into the affairs of Planet 
Earth. While tracking down the terrorist, Zytor gets his medallion stolen (a powerful weapon), forcing him to team up with his sister and devise plans to retrieve the medallion, and help authorities stop the evil terrorists from executing a terrible attack in Washington D.C.





My Review

Surprised! That's what I was when I read The Power of The Blue Medallion. I knew it was a  Sci-Fi book but it was much more. The adventure was thrilling and one that didn't bore. Action packed with a touch of love. So much seemed to happen it such a short book but it never fell short. Phelena was my fav. She was strong and wonderful. I did have to get used to all the sci-fi gadgets. After all when you think about most of that you think of Star Trek.  Once I settled in it was no time till I inhaled this. When I was finished I was ready for more. The characters did round out about mid way through. So there was a great sense of who the characters were. I don't know what it is but I seemed to like the secondary characters the most. The ending scene is something you would see in a movie. I loved it!  I did skip over the math sections. (sorry I am absolutely terrible at math)

A huge Thanks to Les Berman & Rebecca for giving me the chance to devour this book.

Can you believe I've never seen Star Trek? I've never really liked Sci-Fi but I adore any kind of Fantasy... as long as there are no aliens. The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay pushed me as far to my limit as I like to go.

Lovely new layout.

Since you asked what COTM is I thought I'd stop by and let you know. COTM is Character of the Month. Every month a writer has any character from any of their books, short stories, poems, or etc get a spotlight on Write Here. It's a great way to get people interested in your story.

Happy writing,

On behalf of the author, Les Berman, he would like to thank all of the commenters today. It means a lot to him that you were interested in the book. Please spread the word. Even if you don't do the math problems at least read them at the end of the chapters. It just gives you a sense of how much math there is in the world. Never thought about how a story could be made into math problems. It a very unique book. Thank you all. Have a great day.
