Lyon's LegacyCatalyst Chronicles #1 Free download È 106 R graduate school Then her uncle sets up a business deal with her employer to make Joanna go on a mission for him travel via the spaceship Sagan to an alternate TwenCen universe where Sean is still alive Joanna must collect a DNA sample from Sean so her uncle can create a clone of him She refuses at first but finally agrees to go Secretly however Joanna believes her uncle will exploit the clone and she plans to sabotage the project to stop him But when she falls in love. To be honest this book didn t work for me right from the start And the sad thing there is that I really wanted it to I just couldn t get past the premise The idea here is that sometime late this century there will be born the great granddaughter of a 1960s pop star And that s okay except that evidently this guy was such a huge star that people still recognize her all of the family when she s walking down the street and come up to her all starstruck about her great grandfather But see we barely care about the kids of famous people now unless they become some kind of star in their own right This book expects me to believe that at some point in the future we suddenly have some kind of holy reverence for the descendants of dead 60s and 70s music stars You know in the same way that we have reverence for the descendants of all those great stars of the early 20th century You know like Oh wait we don t even remember the stars of 100 years ago let alone their childrenSo yeah the idea that anyone would expect Joanna Lyon to follow in the footsteps of her great grandfather just didn t make any sense I couldn t suspend my disbelief for that Maybe that s my issue and no fault of the bookThen there was the issue of first person I ve mentioned before that I m no real fan of 1st person writing despite my love of The Dresden Files and this book pushed all of my buttons on the reasons why I don t like 1st person It first person offers way too many shortcuts and Almazan took them all freuently telling us how other characters feel and what they think without actually showing us the interactions to back those things up But at least she didn t have Joanna stand in front of a mirror and describer herself to us because that is the worstThere was also the issue of the love story which is of the insta love variety and another of things that push my dislike buttons It s too freuent that we have a female protagonist telling us how she just can t find the right guy and she doesn t know how to act around guys and besides guys aren t that important anyway and BOOM there s the perfect guy and she loves him and he loves her and there s never any uestion about what s going to develop Then once the characters have sex the deal is sealed That s it for life Does that even happen in real life Ever And it s not that I expect a fantasy in the sense that all writing is fantasy to necessarily be true to life but there could be some complexity to it other than the neurosis of the protagonistAll in all the book didn t feel fleshed out There are too many gaps too many things not followed through to their logical conclusion too many things left unexplained Then to top it all off the book just stops It s like Almazan got tired of writing and cut it off without any kind of resolution Reading it on the Kindle made it even worse because I was only at the 85% mark when Lyon s Legacy stopped The rest of the book is promo stuff for her other worksAs I ve said in other reviews maybe these issues are with me The book has generally very positive reviews so maybe I m just too much of a hardass Either way the book didn t work for me

Lyon's LegacyCatalyst Chronicles #1 Free download È 106 Sometimes being a geneticist isn’t enough to understand your familyJoanna Lyon is the great granddaughter of the legendary TwenCen musician Sean Lyon Joanna may have inherited some of her ancestor's musical talent but her parents' bitter divorce and her Uncle Jack's attempts to remake her into another Sean have left her hostile toward her family and music Her passion is for science but since she has no access to the family funds she struggles to earn enough credits fo. This short book of 36000 words is a trifle too short to fully expand and explore all the elements of the plot in the detail I would have liked Almazan s writing is certainly entertaining and has a lively spark of originality about itThis book will suit those who wish to read stories about strong female fantasySF characters that maintain their individuality and femininity Joanna Lyon is a research scientist How refreshingly normal that is She is a truly normal female with all that that entails rather than some sort of super heroic titan that wields a sword better than mere men so often the fare of modern SF and fantasyThe action is set on an Earth and a parallel Earth that is possibly identical This second place is on a timeline that is running slow by a century or so This parallel existence is an interesting concept as it allows Joanna to go backwards in time to before her own birth without actually using a time machine The possibility that the wormhole took her back to earlier in her reality which is certainly a common enough SF scenario isn t contemplated Almazan s plot line is far mathematically plausible To paraphrase time may change thee but thy can t change time Well at least not in one s own past I actually felt that neither Earth was uite the one I am in as music had a stronger role in social development in Joanna s than I have observed Bear to mind though that I sit in an atmosphere of words rather than musicI am a fan of speculative fiction This story very much fills that bill Almazan also uses this work as an opportunity to explore scientific issues that are starting to emerge as concerns for all our futures This book good read though it is could have been so much So many issues of both social and scientific natures are only so lightly brushed I know this author has a great deal to say I hope she does Perhaps she had been put off by the modern fashion for minimalist and short content a trend which seems to suggest that humans have suddenly evolved backwards in their attempts to sustain thought The short sound bite has its place but that can be achieved sufficiently by the use of short climatic chapters rather than by producing books that try to get by using far too few wordsYes of course a strength of this book is the lack of waffle You must realise I like waffles and just wanted a bigger one with even Almazan chocolate
