5.0 out of 5 stars from Desere Steenberg, reviewed on Goodreads on December 6,
This was a romantic suspense like no other I have read before. The character of
Adam, who by the way was found floating in the sea as a baby( I kid you
not),was rather remarkable considering that he has not had a too easy life and
has no idea where he actually came from,but he has made himself into the kind
of man anyone looks up to as did I as reader.
But then the author brought into play Shana and some top VIP's with fascinating
news and the game plan changed and the book got really interesting.
Think top secret space shuttle missions, truth of unknown origins being
revealed, trust being build and a race to save humanity.
Yes the book had it all. The author did brilliant characterization for all main
characters and secondary ones. The author weaved a story from another world
that took me as reader to the other side so to speak.
I loved how passionate and emotionally personal the author made the book, to
the point that I was thinking "Is the author in the room with me?" as I can
swear I can her her typing away at the this one!
The plot was at first a bit hard to get use to but I got use to it once I could
pick up that the author has a few tricks up her sleeves and there is a whole
lot more behind this than at first glance.
Even if your not into space,romance or suspense for that matter this is the
book that will take you to a new high.
I was however expecting a bit of a different outcome but even with the one I
received I was blown away,as I said the author has some interesting tricks up
her sleeve and that is what will leave you with a memorable read.
Very well written and one for the keepers shelf.
4.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Sensory Overload (in a fab way) reviewed on December 9,

How do you explain that a book "has it all"?
In this case I think Birthright has it all! Romance, action, suspense, sci-fi,
mind-reading, drama, good vs bad, cars almost going off cliffs, happiness,
sadness (the sadness you feel when you know the last page is coming and you
don't want it to) back to happiness (knowing this is the first of three book
series). My sensors were in overload, I loved it! I couldn't put Birthright
down, I was almost cursing it was Christmas because I have so much to do when
all I wanted to do was find a corner and keep reading. As I was reading
Birthright it felt like I was there as a third party watching everything
unfold. For me I think this is an incredible feat for a author.
I loved all of the characters, even the bad ones. They were all richly written.
I was drawn to them all from the very beginning and it was not too long before
I realised that all these people are special in an unusual way. Adam was
likable from the start and as I was swiftly drawn into the vortex of the story
I wanted to learn his story... his and everyone else's. I really liked how Adam
was such an intelligent character. Shana is Adams match. From her first
introduction in the story I knew she was someone special and to keep an eye out
It's so hard to write my feelings on this story without giving anything away. I
can not wait for the next two stories.
I recommend you give Birthright a try if you love this type of genre OR if you
want to try something different from the mainstream, you will be richly
rewarded. I feel I was :)
