My overall rating for this book is 4.6 out of 5 stars.
There were several periodic punctuation issues: missing punctuation; too many extra commas (although not as many as in the previous book); and question marks used in place of a period at the end of a sentence that was definitely not a question (most were in the first half if I remember correctly). There were several wrong words used, not just a word that sounds like it but a word that was somewhat close in spelling but not really sounding the same – something that appeared to get a little more frequent in the last 15 or 20% of the book. There were also a few missed words here and there throughout the book. And there was one spot (but just that one spot) where I think the wrong character’s name was attributed to some dialogue.
That said, the story kept me hooked – even when I was falling asleep in my chair from super-long work days! (And those massively long work days meant that it took me several days longer to read through the story. ~grump~) That constant need to keep turning the page even as my eyes drifted closed against my conscious will bump my overall rating higher than it would have been otherwise. I enjoyed the overall ending of the story (so many lines coalesced and questions were answered), but the Epilogue gave me chills. And I smell either a new book in the series or a new series that has this and maybe some of his previous ones as background. Yay!
The few grammar and punctuation issues aside, I highly recommend the entire series. The author provides a summary at the beginning of this book not just of the story previous to it, but also of the first one in the series. For those who have gone a while since reading the last story, it’s a great way to get refreshed on the story to date. This is definitely a book that you want to read **after** having read the previous stories.
Elsewhere Dr. Chikovsky and Petri decides it is time to offer the genetic template for sale to The Sheik as well.
Willow gets ordered to capture Thabitha, Mel and Kirstin after the discovery of where these three Kindred are hiding.
Alp takes the momentous decision to have herself handed over to The Sheik as well in an effort to get the Kindred released in a daring raid against major odds.
It certainly seems like events are all accellerated towards a cataclysmic finale, or is it?
The conclusion to this trilogy leaves many issues unresolved and it is clear this trilogy is due to be expanded and veering into a completely new and unexpected direction with even more intriguing characters having been introduced into the plot,
Todd and Pat primarily.
The twists and revelations that emerge in Seeds of a New Earth is startling. Enjoy.
This is book four. Read them all, they are a lot of fun and worth it.
I received an ARC for an honest Review.
Seeds of a New Earth follows Seeds of a New Birth and Seeds of a New Power, the Kindred Series.
Once again Mr Bradford strikes a Home Run!
Continuing where he left off in Seeds of a New Power, with Willow giving most of the Kindred over to The Sheik at Falconcity. Kirstin, Tabitha and Mel had escaped, Alp was still on the island. Mimi Rawlins, a reporter, had been contacted by Kirstins mother to find her. And Alp, Damba, Lional, Flip, James, the helicopter pilot, and Pat from a detective agency are coming up with a plan to extricate the Kindred from Dubai UAE.
That in a nutshell is the story.
I love the fact that Mr Bradford pulls from his other books and keeps them all relevant to the story. He has Mimi from Fantastic Tales of Foster Flats, and Pat and James from the Freeform books. (actually TJ and one other show up in the book also) Honestly if you haven't read the Freeform books previously, I'd recommend it.
So, what does The Sheik want with the Kindred? And now Chicowski's Template? Who's IS the Skeik besides a Rudolph Valentino look a like crazy who has built Valentinos original home, Falcon Lair. Along with just about every other wonder of the World within his bounds in FalconCity.
The funny thing is he has no idea who the Kindred are. Nor does Chicowski know what to do with the Template. They also don't know what Mel is capable of.
I couldn't put this book down! Once again Mr. Bradford brings forth another awesome book for you!
I've got a feeling because of the way this book ended that its not the end of the Kindred.
