Review: Rhapsody in Paris by Ju Ephraime

Image
This couldn’t be happening to her. A fall on the track where she runs every day, a chance meeting with the most handsome stranger she’s ever seen, and Franchesca LaCasse, an accomplished biochemist, usually able to handle any situation, finds herself hungering for the stranger’s touch, as he gently caresses her face to determine the extent of her injury. With each touch of his hand, he draws her like a moth to flame.
“Look at you,” he whispered, his accent thick and gravelly, the thickest she’d ever heard it.
Damon Dumont comes to an abrupt stop to avoid running over the woman lying in his path on the track; he can’t just walk away. She is not moving. He turns her over to check for a pulse and is not prepared for the unusual beauty of the woman. Everything about her fascinates him, her gorgeous eyes, and the pièce de résistance, her beautiful head of hair—flaming red, his weakness. He calls for the paramedics, and when they arrive decides to accompany her to the hospital. In this momen…

Review: Rare Earth by Colin P. Smith

Image
This is an expose' of the global industry which kills animals for their horns, ivory and other body parts. It is a shocking revelation of mans greed, ignorance and callous disregard for defenseless animals and fellow human beings. It explores the industrial scale of the trade in animal parts, from the top men down to the poachers on the ground. It reveals how the poached items are secretly moved from one country to another. It also discusses how ineffectual current methods are at preventing this vile trade and reveals novel ways by which mans revolting obsession for these materials could be stopped for ever, through the use of applied science and innovation. Warning; Some readers may find parts of the book to be upsetting as it graphically illustrates the cruel methods used by poachers to harvest ivory. Sadly, the reality is far worse than described in these pages.

Almost a hundred years pass. The Earth is ready for habitation. But it is a far different Earth from the one last seen so long ago. New plants and forms of wildlife from different worlds populate the planet, as chosen by the Womb.

The original wildlife is still with them, along with their generations of offspring. Every human now realizes their role is to support the animals.

And what of poor six-year-old Suzy as she is mourned and forgotten by her grandfather and sister?

Scotty is hailed as The One to restore domination by the humans, even as they all fail to understand how. Struggles ensue as the survivors discover the perils of the new and amazing life delivered to the planet by the Womb. They fight to eke out a role in the new ecosystem that has put them at the bottom of the food chain.
