Birthright: The Evolution Chronicles Book 1 by RJ Palmer

One beleaguered man…

In the bitter cold of an unseasonable Colorado winter, Raine Donnelly’s life is turned hopelessly upside down. Machines malfunction and electricity goes haywire, and that’s just the beginning. The doctors think it’s a brain tumor and he’s hallucinating but if that’s the case, why is someone trying to kill him? Isn’t one scared and dying man relatively harmless?

One woman living in no man’s land…

Raine’s widow Sierra is planning a vacation to Colorado with her twin daughters, Renee and Elizabeth who have been insisting that they’re going to visit their dead father and ruining Sierra’s calm. It took her a long time to piece her life back together after he died and for them to refuse to accept the truth is tearing her apart.

An inevitable chance encounter…

When their worlds collide all hell breaks loose and Raine must find a way to piece together the fragmented truth of his past without getting all of them killed…

About the Author

There is nothing the least bit interesting about me and in truth sometimes I believe that I live vicariously through characters of my own creation in which case I should probably seek professional help straightaway. I could bore you with dry facts recited by rote but that would be contra-indicative of my personality type which demands that I at least make this somewhat interesting regardless of the enormity of the task involved. Easier said than done I can assure you. RJ Palmer on Self Publishing To be completely truthful I've found that more off beat authors who have acquired a faithful following have the more richly woven stories. That's not to say that authors who receive a lot of attention are not by all means talented I simply believe that in the practice of traditional publishing there are a select group of authors that receive almost all the attention for one reason or another and I believe that this is an effective way for publishing houses to tell a reader what they're supposed to like which is something with which I do not agree. In keeping with this train of thought I believe that there are hundreds of incredibly talented authors who do not get the attention that they deserve and the opportunity to share their talents with the world which would be an enriching experience for anyone who has the pleasure of stumbling upon their work.

Good story, but way too wordy. I don't need 3 or 4 adjectives to tell me "how dark the night was" The the ending was a little weak as well. After 800 pages, I'd really like to know what happened with Rainne and his family.

The concept for the story is good. However, the story could have easily been told in 100 pages. All the other 600+ pages were filled with unneccessary detail and descriptions that were waay too wordy and distracted from the plot.

Ok story, though writing could REALLY use some editing.

For a free book it wasn't too bad. It kept me interested in learning Raine's background as it slowly revealed itself. The book itself was 267 pages, which was a good length. I can imagine though, that if it had been 800 pages as some reviewers had indicated, it would have been a more excruciating read. The ending was a bit predictable with the good guy victorious, and the bad guys getting their just desserts. That being said the book was in need of a good editor, not so much for the grammatical errors of which there were a few; but for the awkwardly written sentences that showed up with regularity.

First off, very difficult to read in the format its in, narrow passages with 4-5 words per line. Then the story made absolutely no sense. It bounced from one thing to another with no seque way into each. Finally gave up on a disastrous book. Do not recommend this train wreck.

The storyline was very intersting. Not many typos. There was a bit too muxh digressing from the story. The last sentence in this book did not even make sense. Definatly needs an epilogue. Just another long winded account of superman or another tv show. Editing could make this rough draft a thrilling novel.

I was fortunate enough to come across this book by pure chance. I started reading this book thinking that I would spend the next few days battling through a mindboggling read. Fortunately I began the read and before I knew what hit me I was drawn in and had the entire novel finished in 3 hours. I could not believe how intensely I got involved in this novel and I felt and I mean really felt every emotion and sense that Raine felt. Do not pass up this gem hiding in the ruff. Well worth the time and expense.

Interesting but, what's wrong with the format, and the typos. Confusing. Kameez it difficult to read.
