Author Bio:
Joshua Silverman was born in Washington, DC. His family moved to Orange County, California when he was four years old and he was raised there. He grew up watching Star Trek, Star Wars, and other science fiction series with his family when he was young. Star Trek; The Next Generation was a ritual in his house. In his spare time, he collected a respectable collection of comic books and Magic: The Gathering cards. When he's not writing (or working in his day job to be able to write at night), he spends his time thinking about how to avoid traffic, what he's going to have for dinner, watching cheesy apocalyptic or King Fu movies, working out or reading.



Review:
I was asked to review this book, but when I read about it, knew it would be more suited to the hubbys' tastes than my own. I asked him if he'd like to read it, for a review, of course, and he happily agreed.
After he finished the book, I asked him how it was, to write the review, and this is what he had to say:

I loved how the author mixed Greek and Egyptian mythology and history. It meshed well with his mixing of past, present and future times. It was quite a cohesive story.
I was disappointed in some of the characters, they were a little predictable for me, but overall, the author took me on a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that carried the story. 
I thought the cover was appropriate for the book. Appearance-wise it is eye-catching and looked to be a dark and mysterious read. It made me want to pick it up and look at it, and learn more about the story and plot.
After finishing, I would definitely read more from this author.

So there ya have it. The hubby approves!


4/5

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
