Book Review: Serpents Underfoot by D.C. Gilbert

At least one member of JD Cordell’s family has fought in every conflict that the United States has been involved in as far back as the French and Indian War. This included his father, Curtis Cordell, who married the beautiful South Vietnamese woman who saved his life deep in the jungles of Vietnam. 

JD grew up to believe that honor, loyalty and a devotion to duty went hand in hand with the skills and compassion he learned from his years of martial arts training. These things molded JD into the man he is and the accomplished Navy SEAL he has become. 

While on a dangerous mission, JD’s SEAL team unexpectedly discover a plot being orchestrated by a terrorist mastermind living in Iran, which if successful, could spell disaster for the United States. Receiving a message from an old school friend who now works for the CIA, JD finds himself suddenly catapulted into the center of this sinister plot. When his friend is killed, assassinated by the terrorists, JD finds himself drawn still deeper into the sinister conspiracy. Working to avenge his friend’s death, JD uncovers a trail of treachery and betrayal that reaches from the mountains of Iran to the highest levels of the U.S. Government. Can he prevent a major terrorist strike which has the potential to destroy an entire way of life? JD’s honor will not allow him to simply walk away. Continue reading

Review: Empowerment for Aspiring Business Owners

In today’s world you can do one of two things: find a job or start your own business. To become an entrepreneur, you need to know what to expect. You know, expectation is the root of all heartache, and a lot more people give up because of that than are forced to give up.

Friday Review: Don’t Listen to Your Parents by Andrew Krehbiel

Don'tListen_cover (1)Listen. Not hear, listen. Without judgement. I don’t have to believe in everything they say. They’re human. I’m human. I have to remind myself to hear them out. They might give me an idea of how to live.

Andrew Krehbiel is trying to change the world through his writing. His essays on freedom, religion, sex, and so on are compelling to read. After all, we get to see inside someone else’s mind.

But this book is more about thinking for yourself than anything else. It’s about finding your own truth, your own path, your own beliefs. It’s about arriving at a certain conclusion and being damn certain that you’re the one responsible for it.

And, yes, I believe his is right. You can only arrive at the conclusion that you are becoming more than what your environment has shaped when you decide to shape your environment.

A remarkable read indeed.


Andrew Krehbiel resides somewhere in the United States. He’s a young adult trying to make this world a better place through writing. While he’s not writing, he’s either driving people around town, eating, meditating, or sleeping. His parents loved him as a child, but he’s not listening to their actions any more.

Review: The Automation

OMEGAVenusMiloPrint3“The capital-A Automatons of Greco-Roman myth aren’t clockwork. Their design is much more divine. They’re more intricate than robots or androids or anything else mortal humans could invent. Their windup keys are their human Masters. They aren’t mindless; they have infinite storage space. And, because they have more than one form, they’re more versatile and portable than, say, your cell phone—and much more useful too. The only thing these god-forged beings share in common with those lowercase-A automatons is their pre-programmed existence. They have a function—a function their creator put into place—a function that was questionable from the start… Continue reading

Friday Review: Love by Jin Okubo

CoverfrontLove is a story about soul mates, a story about destiny; one written by a man from the perspective of a man, which I find to be interesting.

Maybe it’s just me, but it always seemed to me that even though women are romantic by nature, it’s as if romance itself was created by men. It is men who crave for a love so perfect that there’s no room for doubt, it is men who are capable of going to extreme lengths in order to fight for their love. It is men who believe in their feelings until the very end. Continue reading
