Please check out the fun book reviews at the blog “The Book Hoard” where avid reader Margaret claims to have been hoarding books since 1980. She can be found at http://www.thebookhoard.com/ and has x0 in her queue to review!
Check out the blog Serial Distractions which posts about “fiction, reviews, geekery” and has reviewed x0 and rather liked it.
46. Ascending is the name of a collection of six interrelated novels that describe the adventures of the oddly gifted Zeitman family. The first novel, x0, concerns telepathic Lola as she finds herself the unlikely hero in a rescue mission in Nigeria. It has been available online since March 2012.
The second novel, y1, tells of son Zane who, unbeknownst to his parents, has always had an odd ability to alter his appearance. This turns out to be very handy when Zane finds himself in danger while working at a pharmaceutical company in Chicago, and even more convenient when his situation threatens his friends in the South Pacific.
Both novels, y1 and x0, occur somewhat contemporaneously and either can be read as a stand alone book, or these two books can be read in either order. y1 will be available electronically by the end of summer 2012.
The third novel in the series will be available at the end of 2012 and will continue both Lola and Zane’s adventures forward, as well as introducing the special gift of yet another member of the family.
