Borne On Wings Of Steel By Tony Chandler
A few years ago, I'd the pleasure of reading Chandler's first EPPIE award winning book, MotherShip. I've never forgotten that book and always hop there would be a sequel.
Well now there is! Mother and her crew are back in an exciting action / adventure / mystery sequel that encompasses worlds peopled with a variety of alien beings competing even "Star Wars". Eclectic collection. Chandler has the unique talent of bringing his characters to life and making you believe that they're not only possible. Maybe –. Just maybe they're waiting for you right around the corner.
One of my husband's favorite adages is, "Never try to come between a mother and her child.". As I read this book, I thought of that and couldn't help laughing. Imagine how much more that adage might mean if that "Mother". Is a sentient starship fully armed with hybrid weapons built specifically for her and ready for battle. Ouch!
Three children raised by Mother are now young adults full of the curiosity and exuberance of youth. Are these three the last remaining human beings in the universe? Their home world, Earth, was completely destroyed by a war-faring alien race. The children were barely escaping destruction because they were already aboard MotherShip. But their quest to search for other humans hasn't ended. Deep down, they hold out hope that they'll find other human survivors. Because she wants them to be happy, it's also Mother's goal. The search leads them millions of light years away to strange worlds, where they encounter many exotic races –. No humans.
During their quest, they and their alien "family". Became entangled in a web of espionage and danger where they encounter the mysterious Paum. Who or what's Paum? Why are the residents of this universe afraid of Paum? Why's this Paum so interested in Mother? They soon discover that more than just lives are at stake. Perhaps the future of the entire universe lies in the hands of these three, young humans, Mother and their small "family.".
... And we have Joey to thank for thatJoey's (in)famous dialog―'How you 'Doin' is probably one of the most famous quotes that the sitcom has to offer.For a sitcom to be able to entertain its audiences across the world for 20 odd years is no mean feat, and 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' has managed to do exactly that. For all the things that Friends stood for and brought into our lives (and continues to bring still)―the coffee culture or making sarcasm appealing, for example,―laughter is probably what we are most thankful for. Such was its (is its) popularity that not only did people watch the sitcom fervently while it was being aired in real time, but continue to watch it even today (10 years after it went off the air), with reruns upon reruns on TV, and the complete collection of the sitcom taking up permanent gigabytes on the hard disk―to be viewed every weekend or whenever the mood strikes, whichever comes first.
Friends became hugely popular for the world that it let us escape into, the odd relationships that somehow made sense, the sarcasm that suddenly became appealing, which is how Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe became household names. People began identifying with them ("I'm a control freak like Monica", anyone?), people began emulating their hairstyles, and more than ever, people began mouthing their dialogs ...
The 20th anniversary of the first episode ever aired went by a few days ago, and to celebrate this occasion, we here at Buzzle thought that we would give you a little something to reminisce about all the good times that you've shared with Friends―a complete list of the quotes that have made you laugh over the last 20 years.Friends TV Show QuotesLet's re-live some of the funniest quotes on friendship, marriage, love, and about life...
Because I'm intrigued by the idea of sentient machines with artificial intelligence, I found myself holding my breath to see what Mother would do next. One of my favorite lines from the book is, "Don't make Mother mad.". This story will have you chuckling one minute and on the edge of your seat the next.
If you didn't read the first story MotherShip, you'll find that the sequel, Borne On Wings Of Steel, stands alone with high adventure. Will keep you entranced from the first page to the last.
If you did read the first one, your experience will be enriched twofold –. you'll reunite with old friends and make new ones in this second in the series. I strongly recommend that you get both at Hard Shell Word Factory and take not just one. Two exciting trips into this innovative future that Chandler has created for you.
