I’ve read almost exclusively nonfiction books this year. That’s normal for me, but I’m finally starting to feel the wear. I did read Rainbow Six, which, though long, I found to be a nice break.
I came across the author CW Lemoine on YouTube. I’m not sure what I wanted to surface his videos, but he seemed like a nice guy. He’s written a series of books, of which Origins is the prequel. I thought I’d give it a shot, especially given my appreciation of independent authors who are willing to risk it all and publish a manuscript.
I’m not sure if I will continue in the series. I almost didn’t finish this book because of two somewhat graphic sex scenes in the first 20 pages. I came back a few days later and decided to read it through it the end. This book provided some initial background stories about the main characters in the series. At the same time, I get enough hypersexualization in my life, and I’m not sure that I want that in my reading time.
I think I’ll move on to another book and ponder for a while whether I’ll go forward with the series. I’d love to read a series, any series, start to finish, but I’m not sure this is the one for me.
