Sixth US President, John Quincy Adams, a man who knew a lot about effective leadership, maintained that the most successful people were those whose actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. These people were the ones who entered the fray, who left the sidelines, who threw themselves into life. They were the ones who forged a nation and achieved the impossible. They were the ones who truly connected to life, to others, and to themselves.

Mentralysis, The House of Bloodstein Book 2

Hello Everyone!

Today, in association with Loving The Book, I'm featuring Ren Garcia's latest League of Elder novel, Mentralysis, House of Bloodstein Book 2. I'll tell you right off that I edited this book, but I also wanted to add that I am a huge fan of Ren's work and Mentralysis is no exception. The action comes thick and fast, and the twists and turns of the plot are fascinating. If you already know Ren's books, you'll know how good this one is before reading it. If you haven't been introduced yet - go check them out! Lovers of sci-fi, fantasy and steam punk will not be disappointed!

They thought the episode with their cousin to the east, Lady Bloodstein, was over. They thought it was something to laugh about at the grand table in fond nostalgia.

But they were wrong. They were so wrong.
And Castle Blanchefort has fallen!

Lord Kabyl has lost everything: his wife, his kin, his family fortune, and his home. Castle Blanchefort, once a safe haven, is overrun with enemies seeking his blood.

In what follows, he must join forces with ancient enemies and with people who do not exist. He must treat with sinister, possibly untrustworthy gods and barter away his soul for urgently needed arcane help or face certain death at the hands of forgotten tyrants and their machinations from a bygone age.

And, how can a strange science known as Mentralysis, practiced in secret in the hidden places of the League, hold the key to ultimate victory?

What should have been obvious to Lord Kabyl from the start at last becomes crystal clear: Foolish is he who dares possess the Ultimate Object, for misery shall be his only reward.

Snippet:

The mouth became quizzical and then gave a wry, wicked smile. "My help? I see ... And what can I do to help you?"

"I need a favor."

"A favor?" it cried with a sour note. "Not in four hundred years have I granted a favor to an Invernan, or anyone else for that matter. I do believe I admire your idiocy and raw nerve. Go on, ask your favor."

"I need Shadow tech."


"Shadow tech? Is that all?"  

 --Wilhella Cormand-Grande to Lord Kabyl of Blanchefort.

10 Weeks at Chanute - Peacewrites Review





In 1992 an aimless young man decided to serve his country and joined the Air National Guard. To complete his training, he was sent to venerable Chanute Air Force Base in the flats of Illinois to learn how to turn wrenches on jet engines. It was a place brimming with history, a place he soon grew to love.

Soon thereafter, Chanute closed its doors forever, becoming a modern ruin in the years that followed, taking the young man's heart with it.

This humorous, witty and occasionally ribald memoir details the experience of one of the last Airmen to pass through the hallowed gates of Chanute Air Force Base, and how the experience haunts him to this very day.

10 weeks at Chanute is a fascinating and sympathetically written memoir. The reader follows a young man as he enters the military – specifically the American Air National Guard – and begins his training. The narrative tells of his many memories of his fellow trainees, his superiors, his classes, and also of Chanute, the base where it all takes place.

The author’s fondness for the base shines through the novel and the atmospheric descriptions enable the reader to imagine themselves there along with all the other personnel. Rich in emotional content, the prose then recounts the author’s return to the ruined base many years later, and relays his dismay at its state and his yearning for what used to be.

I am not generally a fan of memoirs but I found this one strangely appealing. I am a fan of the author’s sci fi/fantasy novels, so when he gifted me this book, I was more than happy to give it a try. I am glad I did. Insights into what makes authors tick are rare and privileged gifts, and I treasure this one. 

Recommended for anyone who enjoys Ren Garcia's work, or simply likes military tales or memoirs.

--Little did I know that those ten weeks I would spent at Chanute Air Force Base, the American Timbuktu on the plains in its last dying days and destined to become a modern ruin, would haunt my soul to this very day.
