Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.


The Dork and the Deathray (50 States of Fear: Alaska) - E.G. Foley
  Gabby is being kept a prisoner in her home by her mother because of riots occurring in San Francisco. When she gets the chance to go to Alaska with her father, she jumps at it. In Alaska Gabby hears a radio broadcast about the Northern Lights facility, a government installation supposedly studying the Aurora Borealis. It causes her to think about things she has seen in Alaska that do not seem to be right as well as the riots happening through the United States. Could the broadcaster be right about a government cover-up?

I liked Gabby. She is spunky, feisty, and independent. I loved her curiosity to find out what is behind things she has seen and know cannot be right. I liked her inventiveness when necessary. She a wonderful heroine. When she discovers who is behind these events, she is shocked but not afraid to do what she must to defeat the person. Once the action begins, it is a non-stop ride to the ending. I did not see this coming.

The secondary characters are fun and interesting. Her dad is not happy with her insistence that the radio announcer might be onto the truth but his risk-taking has him throwing his hand in with them. Dr. Mackowsky is a hiss-worthy villain as are his cronies. He only needs a mustache to twirl as he plots his takeover. He already has the evil laugh down pat. Gabby's interaction with him is enjoyable especially when she is ahead of him.

I am loving this series! I keep wondering how it will be kept fresh and exciting. So far I have not been disappointed
