In the Books Featuring Race For The Moon by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan

Good morning and welcome to a special edition of In the Books, featuring Race For The Moon by Michelle Cornwell-Jordan.

Disclaimer: I was given a free copy of the ebook in exchange for an honest review.

We’re introduced to Ivee and her sister at the start of the story. As a tinkerer, Ivee enjoyed nothing more than working in her workshop on items from the time before the adults disappeared and the world became the children’s.

race for the moon

Her world is turned upside down when her sister is kidnapped and she is told to journey to the Downenders’ camp by the next full moon (a week) to save her sister. On her journey she picks up a couple of surprise companions that may prove beneficial by the end of her journey.

The story was well written and grabbed my attention on the first page. There’s an enormous amount of backstory as to what happened to the adults and the future of the children that is sprinkled throughout the story. It was refreshing and highly enjoyable to leave so many things open to question to keep the reader guessing throughout.

I thought the characters were well done and realistic. I have to admit, I liked Ivee initially, but she quickly took a back seat to the mysterious stranger Savior. I love characters that come out of nowhere and have a mystery about them so Ivee didn’t really stand a chance. Given who the Savior ends up being, he sets a great hook and lead-in for the next book. I’m a big fan of Michelle’s books, and I have to say I think this is her best one yet. It’s a phenomenal start in a new genre for her (Steampunk) and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

I wanted to finish it off off by offering my congratulations on her upcoming new release. For those who may not know, Michelle is a good friend and wonderful supporter of Indie artists as well as a very talented author. I’m grateful to be a part of the release day festivities and look forward to seeing what more she has in store for us down the road.


About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
