SYNOPSIS

At seventeen, Adam Rhodes is famous, living on his own, and in a downward spiral since he lost the girl he loved. Marybeth stage name Sunshine was his best friend from the days they were foster kids; then she was his girlfriend and his band mate. But since her accidental death, he’s been drinking to deal with the memories. Until one day, an unexpected visitor, Dr. Elloran, presents Adam with a proposition that just might save him from himself. Using breakthrough cloning and memory-implantation techniques, Dr. Elloran and the scientists at Project Orpheus want to resurrect Marybeth, and they need Adam to “donate” intimate memories of his life with her. The memory retrieval process forces Adam to relive his life with Marybeth and the devastating path that brought them both to fame. Along the way, he must confront not only the circumstances of her death but also his growing relationship with the mysterious Genevieve, daughter of Project Orpheus’s founder. As the process sweeps Adam and Marybeth ever closer to reliving the tragedy that destroyed them, Adam must decide how far he’ll go to save her.”

REVIEW

 

This was a slow read for me at first but once I got the grasp of the concept I had to finish this one in one sitting. The name of the novel “Resurrecting Sunshine ” was way more literal than of any other book I have ever read. This book is about heartbreaks, hope, love, friendship, second chances and so so many emotions that we can’t comprehend. Adam had a perfect chance to bring his love back to life, to give his love a second or maybe the first chance that was taken away from him. But at the same the questions that plague his mind are the right one which any sane person would ask. The decision to choose between right and wrong is always a tough one.

Each and everyone of us, if ever had a chance to bring back our loved one back to life or even if were given chance to create ‘ a reprint, an echo, a copy’ might never back down from chance but yet the same time that person we love is buried underground maybe by our own hands. This thought that was of Adam and Gen was so thought provoking that I had to stop myself to give myself time to realize this reality, which BTW was at complete clash with my molecular biologist degree

But that plot twist in the middle. I was like ” woah, let’s take a break for second. let me soak this up ”

This book for me was a solid five stars. This is story  for all ya lovers

Synopsis

Rinnie Noelle would rather kick some creepy villain butt than go on a date. As a Psi Fighter trained in the Mental Arts, she can’t be distracted by emotion. Her nemesis, Nicolaitan, is manipulating students from her school, using them as puppets to carry out his new plan to find the infamous Morgan Girl, and he doesn’t care who becomes collateral damage in the process. People’s lives are depending on Rinnie’s ultimate focus.

But Mason Draudimon keeps slicing into her soul sharper than a Thought Saber, and her feelings for him knock her off her game with the strength of a psionic War Hammer. Mason insists on helping Rinnie take down Nicolaitan for his own reasons—to avenge his mother—and the closer they get to the truth, the more dangerous the dance between mind and heart, life and death, logic and love.

Review

My main reason for giving this book 3/3.5 stars is not because that I  didn’t like the story line. This fact is based purely  on the reason that I was unable to find and read first novel in the series 😦 so naturally i was in a kind of loop hole. but i did tried my best to follow plot.
For me, writers writing style was fluent, it as easy for me to catch with plot . i love those sarcastic taunts of Rinnie. And i really loved the character of Rinnie, she is one kickass-don’t mess with me, kinda girl. throughout whole novel what I wanted  was a little bit more of a romance between Mason and Rinnie. well, a little romance can never hurt
this review would have been so so much better only if i had read first novel before diving into this 😦

Happy reading people 🙂
