  • This omnibus edition includes all three books in The Children of Wisdom Trilogy (The Fate, The Reaper, and The Human). It's over 500 pages of spinners, reapers, love, loss, magic, mythology, hell, and demons.

    The Fate (Book 1)

    The thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken…

    My name is Penn, and I'm a spinner. As one of the three Fates, it's easy for me to know the plans for the lives of the humans. Mine, on the other hand, is a bit foggier. I guess things started to get out of control when I spun her-Kismet. My focus shifted, one thing led to another, and I wound up banished to Earth.

    You'd think it'd be pretty hard to surprise me, but after my banishment, they just kept hitting me like a one-two knockout punch. When the people around me started dying before their time, I knew something was very wrong and I had to do whatever I could to set it right. The one thing I didn't know was…what is the true fate of a Fate?

    The Reaper (Book 2)

    "The Thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken..."

    My name is Michaela, and I'm a Reaper. I help the humans transition from their home on Earth after they die. Up until a short time ago, things were going well. But then, one of our best Fates was banished to Earth, people started dying before their time, and things went rapidly downhill from there.

    Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, I found seven misplaced souls trapped in the depths of hell. It didn't matter to me who had put them there, or even why they had. All I knew was I had to get them out. I couldn't just leave them there to suffer.

    Who knew trying to find out and fix what had gone so horribly wrong would end with me surrounded by misfit Fates while racing through the depths of hell? Trying to save not only the seven trapped souls, but also the entire human race, is not exactly in my job description...

    The Human (Book 3)

    "The thread of life is a delicate thing. It is so easily broken…"

    Michaela's gone. Disappeared. And I'm lost without her.

    She left to bring a child into the heavens and vanished, along with two Archangels. As I search for answers, I keep uncovering more questions. Why is the human cutting threads? How do we stop her? More importantly, how can I save Michaela?

    I'm trapped. The human took me. And Penn has no idea where I am. That woman, she… well, I'm not even sure what she did. All I know is one minute, the Archangels were there, and the next, they weren't. She's proving to be a powerful adversary, that's for sure.

    With a child just added to the prison, I need to find my way out of here to end this. More than just their souls depend on me.

    The fate of the Earth will not crumble at the hands of a mere human.

  • <b>I'm going to marry the playboy Navy SEAL for one million dollars.</b>

    Nash Bell is sexy, arrogant, and totally filthy. His war memoir is selling like crazy, making him one of the most famous people in the country. But he hates the limelight and needs me to fix his bad boy reputation to help get him back into active duty.

    All I have to do is pretend to be his wife, and then I can afford my father's medical bills.

    <b>I know I'm just a tool to him, but I can't help but let him use me.</b>

    I don't want to lie to America. But the cameras are on all the time and I need to play my role.

    <b>It's strictly business between us.</b> Except for when he whispers how badly he wants my body.

    This should be easy. We just need to convince everyone we're the perfect couple, despite the fact that I think he's an arrogant a**hole.

    Then Nash can leave, and I can help my family.

    This should be simple.

    <b>So why do I want him to stay?</b>

    <i>SEALed Bride is heart-pounding violent, very sexy, and features a hero with a dirty mouth. It's only recommended for audiences 18+.

    SEALed Bride is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Guaranteed HEA.</i>

Excellent with some minor defects
Aaron D*** (17. September 2012)

First of all, a warning: Buy this book on a Friday evening. You might not get much sleep after starting reading.

I admit that I felt uneasy after reading the first scene in the "Look Inside" sample chapter. Julie's fate made me wonder whether this was going to become splatter & gore later. That didn't happen. The author does use violence when it makes sense at that point in the story. It's still repugnant but it makes sense.

Which is the strong point: Everyone in the book is smart. There aren't any stereotype evil guys. Everyone - protagonists and side characters - has a clear plan, a goal, means and will to achieve that goal - even if someone else is getting in the way. If something goes wrong, it goes wrong for a reason. If people make mistakes, they make them because it seemed a really good idea at the time. Shit happens. A lot of shit. The hard-boiled cop and the righteous ex-military, scraping off each other. Each absolutely sure that their course of action isn't the best but only viable solution. Don't get me wrong. This isn't about cop vs. military. This is the struggle of two completely different characters that need to achieve the same goal and who actually get along pretty well. If one of them isn't broadcasting information that might kill thousands of people in riots. And the other isn't shooting people in the head in cold blood because he believes them dangerous sociopaths that might get away with their crimes.

The story takes many twists and turns, never losing enough speed to get boring, but with slower sections to allow the reader to put down the book. To handle the most pressing human urges. Eating. Drinking. Restroom. Reading on to know what happens next.

Characters: Great individuals. Most of them seem to be the usual stereotypes but cracks appear pretty quickly. People get away and people die. I cared. Well done.

World: He doesn't go into much physics and cuts a few corners (distances are probably not quite right and flight times are probably not accurate) but the world as a whole makes sense. After reading the book, you have a feeling how Ceres and Eros look on the in- and outside, and how they work. Medicine is advanced but not almighty. If your bones break, you're mobile again after a few minutes but it still takes the bone some weeks to heal.

I have only two minor points of criticism: When Julie comes out of her locker after four days without water, she passes a lot of ship but doesn't stop to find something to drink. I could imagine that she's too frightened to stop and get killed but there is no hint either way in her thoughts.

And there is no trace of information how everyone makes sure they don't get contaminated with the "virus" as they enter and leave infected areas. A few sentences about medical checkups and decontamination would have worked wonders.

Apart from that, I loved the many details.

Q: What's the most important part of a military ship? A: A coffee machine that spits out good stuff no matter free fall or 5 g acceleration.
[Revised] Could not be read with cloud reader initially - good read.
Moeller-Herrmann (12. September 2012)

[Revised]
I planned to read this on my computer using kindle cloud reader and it appears that this is not possible for this title... Ther was no prior indication of this limitation and I can only warn people here. Really bad - I would prefer to get my money back, if I cannot read this book. Shame on whoever did not give the ability to read this in the cloud.

It seems to work now, maybe a technical glitch rather than an intentional crippling.

The book itself is a good read, quite a page turner. The characters are a bit cartoonish, but apart from that it is a nice space opera (without FTL travel) with militaristic flavour. Recommended.
Great SF, Worth Reading
Michael (6. Mai 2012)

I bought the book because I read some recommendations like for example from George R.R. Martin.

What should I say, it was really a great read. The story is gripping and has it's share of fast paced action without neglecting the character-building. The book has one of the most intriguingly characters(Miller..) I read in the last couple of years in SF. 'Leviathan Wakes' stands up to any comparison with the books of well known SF-Authors, like Peter F. Hamilton, Vernor Vinge, or others..

I will buy the sequel in any case and look forward to the next pageturner..
Great Science Fiction
Max J*** M*** (14. Januar 2012)

Well, that was surprising. I only picked this book up because I was looking for a short book of something else than fantasy to get back to ASOIAF afterwards, but the story sucked me in and refused to let me go for way too long. In fact, I have spent almost all my free time of the last three days on this book, instead of learning for the upcoming exams. Go figure.

So, about the book. First off, let me tell you that I am by no means an expert on Science Fiction. The last science fiction book I read has been more than a year ago. So, I can't give fancy comparasions to other books or anything like that.
I can only say that this probably has to be the best science fiction book I have read to date. The story was relly interesting and actually managed to keep my guessing for a long time, which does not happen too often. Every time I think I figured it out, a new twist of the story comes out of nowhere and I am back to square one with my prediction of how the book will go on. In fact, I only saw the ending coming about ten or twenty pages before the book was actually over.
Another think I really liked about the book is that there were some parts where I thought "Well, this would make for a fine cliff-hanger ending, since the book is only part one of the Series. I guess it's just a short book", only to take a look at the page number and see that I was only halfway through (This can obviously only happen if you are reading on an eReader...).
To point out a few more things that I liked: The characters were really believable and alive, and I really enjoyed the development Miller went through, the story mostly free of obvious cliches (Again, I don't know much about Science Fiction cliches), and there were some really humorous moments that didn't seem artificial at all.

I would recommend this book to just about anyone who isn't afraid of space or a physics student (Some parts of the physics seemed a bit strange to me, but I am not an expert on physics either, so whatever).

  • *Updated to the Angular 2.4.3 released in January 2017.

    After reading this book, you are going to be able to:-

    - Understand the latest features of ES6 JavaScript and TypeScript.
    - Build an Angular 2 application from scratch using TypeScript and the Angular command line interface.
    - Write code using the paradigm of reactive programming with RxJS and Observables.
    - Know how to Unit Test Angular 2 using Jasmine, Karma and the Angular Test Bed

    The first chapter in the course is a quickstart where you dive straight into writing your first Angular 2 application. We use the web editor plunker so you can get stuck in writing code ASAP.

    In this quickstart you'll get a 50,000 foot view of the major features of Angular 2.

    Then chapter by chapter we go much deeper into each of these features. I'll cover the theory for that feature, using plunker as much as possible so you can try out the code yourself in a browser. Then you'll practice what you've learnt with either an online quiz or a set of flash cards.

    You are going to learn all about:-

    - Typescript & ES6 Javascript.
    - Components & Binding
    - Directives
    - Dependancy Injection & Services
    - Angular Modules & Bootstrapping your Angular application.
    - SPAs & Routing
    - Angular CLI
    - Forms
    - Reactive Programming with RXJs
    - HTTP
    - Unit Testing

    The ideal student is an existing web developer, with some JavaScript knowledge that wants to add Angular 2 to their skill set. Or perhaps you are an existing Angular 1 developer who wants to level up to Angular 2.

    You do need to be comfortable with at least the ES5 version of JavaScript. We'll be using a UI framework called twitter bootstrap throughout the course but you still must know HTML and some CSS.

  • When Hayden's fiancé breaks off their engagement, Hayden's whole world falls apart. After all, she has loved Heath Fitzpatrick since they were children. Though she can hardly believe he really wants the breakup, she picks up the pieces of her life and tries to accept the new situation.
    But her efforts are thwarted time and again by the rest of the Fitzpatrick clan, who have always been part of her life-and who are notorious for being outspoken, persistent, and downright meddlesome. None of Heath's siblings are above adding their own two cents. Or twenty.
    Even Heath himself, a daring firefighter, seems to be having trouble adjusting to his new single life. So how in the world is Hayden supposed to move on, forget the plans they made for the future, and get Heath off her mind? And even more difficult-she'll need to banish him from her heart, forever.
