Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Clone Republic by Steven Kent


My thanks to sharonae44 who suggested Steven Kent’s book to me. I was swapping for a David Weber or Drake book with her and she said she was reading this book and felt if I liked Drake and Weber, I would like it. She was right. His style is not as emotional as Weber. I didn’t find myself identifying with the protagonist like I often do with Weber, Drake or Ringo. The concept of clones as disposable troops was dismal but frighteningly plausible. The unwieldy aspect of a galaxy wide federation of worlds leads into the next novel. This book was primarily a coming of age of a young man who discovers he is a military clone. I recommend it.

Body of work of Steven Kent
