Novel Review: Indomitable by J. B. Garner

Here’s another great review of Indomitable, the first book of The Push Chronicles! If you haven’t read it yet yourself, you should!

Indomitable (The Push Chronicles #1)Indomitable by J.B. Garner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The strength of a superhero origin story, aside from the storytelling itself, is in the inner struggle of the individual common person thrust into uncommon circumstances. Suddenly problems and solutions are larger than life and the ramifications of actions are likewise amplified. Throw in a sense of fun and irony and one gets the winning combination that is Indomitable.

Though centered on Atlanta area professor, Dr. Irene Roman, this tale is more than one person’s origin story, it’s a world-wide origin story as an apocalyptic event creates superheroes and supervillains everywhere, all at once. Cleverly filtered through the lens of comic books come-to-life, skeptical Irene seems to be the rare person who sees through the new reality superimposed over the old. Disconcerting as it is for her, her narration breaks the fourth wall of the comics world consistently and…

The Opening Bell by J.B. Garner

Honestly I wasn’t sure how much I would like a book about Women’s Wrestling since I am not into wrestling.  But this book was good.  It has a good story and characters I enjoyed reading about. I wanted to follow, Leilani, on her journey and see how well she did.  Did she achieve her dream?   * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*  4/5

Why Review? Because it’s Easier not to.

Everything here said is oh-so-true!

Destiny Allison

People are scared to write reviews. It’s a fact.

Here are some of the fears:

  • Someone might disagree with me and I’ll feel stupid.
  • I’m not smart enough or don’t know enough to sound intelligent.
  • I’m not a good writer.
  • Nobody cares what I say.
  • My opinion doesn’t count for much.

There are many others, I’m sure, but these are the ones I’ve heard.

Because of these fears, people stay quiet instead of using their voices to help shape the world.

Here are some more facts:

  • Reviews don’t have to be more than a sentence. You can simply write “I loved it.” Or, “Meh.” You can even say you hated it.
  • You don’t have to sound smart, be highly educated about something, or convince anyone else that your opinion is valid. It’s your opinion. You’re entitled to it.
  • Reviews are a lifeline for creatives. Without them, great books never get read. Great…

The Opening Bell by J.B. Garner

Another excellent honest review! Thanks to Ashley for the fine critique!

What's She Reading?

Leilani Ito has wrestling in her blood. As a rookie she’s not expecting to win all of her fights, but she is willing to work hard and do her time to get to the top. What Leilani doesn’t realize is that there is more than just wrestling in her family history. There is also a curse that could end her wrestling career–maybe even her life–forever.

First of all, I just want to say that I know NOTHING about wrestling. I think if you have any sort of background or knowledge about wrestling that this book would instantly become more enjoyable. That being said, I thought this book was pretty good though it did have some flaws. I thought the overall plot was interesting. There was a lot of conflict and interesting relationships developed between characters. There are fights in the ring as well as fights out of it and that creates…
