The Book: Lieutenant Henry Gallant

The Prize: a $50 Amazon Gift Card up for grabs in a giveaway

 

 

 

LT Henry GallantIn an era of genetic engineering, Lieutenant Henry Gallant is the only Natural (non-genetically enhanced) officer left in the fleet. Many of his superiors, including rival Anton Neumann, have expressed concern he is not up to the challenge. However, his unique mental abilities have proven essential to the defense of the United Planets in its fight against the Titan invaders.

Serving on the first FTL prototype, the Intrepid, on its maiden voyage to Tau Ceti, Gallant finds a lost colony on the planet Elysium. Cyrus Wolfe and his son, manipulate planet politics against the democratic opposition led by James Hepburn and his granddaughter Alaina. Wolfe has allied himself with an ancient Artificial Intelligence which had lain dormant on the planet for millennia, but is now willing to protect the colonists against the Titans.

With Alaina’s help, Gallant discovers the ancient AI has a sinister ulterior motive and he matches his unique and exceptional mind against the complexity of machine intelligence to escape the ultimate trap and prevent the extermination of humanity.

In Lieutenant Henry Gallant, one man pits the naked human mind against the perspicacity of machine intelligence.

Midshipman Henry Gallant

Book Reviews for Volume 1:
Past Reviews of the first volume: Midshipman Henry Galant @2013

“The author has created a wonderful piece of work with his first novel in the Henry Gallant Saga. Between Henry Gallant beginning his new life on the United Planets’ battle cruiser Repulse and trying to save the world the author has came up with it all. Henry Gallant is an admirable character with many wonderful features such as courage, intelligence, humility, kindness and special powers. … the odds stacked against him pretty high. But maybe through it all, Kelsey will see the remarkable things about him.” Ashley Patts, Teenage Rush teenagerush.blogspot.com

“This story moves along at a swift pace, with interesting character development and plot surprises. The characters are complete and engaging. This could develop into a good series.” Rae

“Its style and flavor reminded me of The Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell.” – JJH

“Space Opera at its finest. Rousing read, introverted young man against impossible odds, a girl to win or lose, an enemy or is he? Way too much fun…can’t wait for the next one.” – vrzepka

Then I found out. I know who I am.

Loving @Influenster with the #TLCVoxBox

If you follow me on social media, you’ll have seen me mentioning items from the #TLCVoxBox.  I’m truly in love with this box.  Let’s talk a bit.

The absolute favorite thing of mine from this box is the coupon for the Breyer’s Gelato.  I had never tried it before and now am aghast that I hadn’t!  I got a container of the Triple Chocolate.  What can I say?  I’m a chocoholic.  If you’re gonna eat it you might as well get the good stuff!  And boy was this good.  It was supposed to be a date night idea.  So, my husband and I rented a movie from Redbox and we were going to watch a movie and share the ice cream. It was clear after a few bites that I was not going to want to share!  That’s okay because though he liked it, it wasn’t my husbands favorite.  He prefers a chocolate and caramel ice cream so I got to enjoy this all by myself!  Yum yum yum!!!!

Was so hard to choose though! Wish the raspberry cheesecake was gluten free.

 

There were other things in the box too, but lets be honest, they weren’t quite as great as triple chocolate.  Yeap told you, addict here.

The Neo to Go is awesome for going places with little kids.  They’re always falling down and scraping something so trust me when I say you’ll love having this in your purse or diaper bag.

There was also a bar of Ivory soap.  I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of using bar soaps.  I think they leave a bit of a film.  But let me tell you it was awesome for a science experiment.  You can peek over to my Ivory Soap Pinterest Board to see some uses for the soap.   If you’re a DIY type person you can even use it for making your own laundry detergent. 

The Puffs Pack is definitely something else that can go to your diaper bag or purse.  I love to keep kleenex in my purse because you never know when you’re going to need them!  I mean, you really never know when something is going to make your child cry or have a runny nose, etc.  As a mommy of 9, you can never have enough!  

Don’t forget to also check out my TLCVoxBox board for some more fun on the items in the box!  

A practical piece of the box was the Shell fuel rewards card.  There aren’t a lot of Shell stations around where I live but I’ve used it a few times and can say that this is going to be awesome when we travel!  Who doesn’t want to save money on fuel?!

The last item in the box was from Avon Anew.  Great way to have  a little makeover on your own time in your own house!  Super soft skin coming on now!  Definitely a great new product for you to try!

I received the #TLCVoxBox from Influenster.  I have received no other compensation and all thoughts in this post are my own.
