Summary Book Review Shattered Sun by John Gillette:
Download or read book Shattered Sun written by John Gillette and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2015-08-28 with total page 44 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nine hundred years ago, the Sun exploded. It shattered into millions of pieces, which swirled about the cosmos and eventually plummeted into the earth. On that day, the world was plunged into an eternal twilight. Without the Sun, life became dependent on its fractured remains, the Sun Shards, for survival. They instantly became the most precious resources on the face of the earth. If you had one, you had light, heat, and the ability to grow food. If you didn't, you died a cold, lonely death. Here's the funny thing though: Life goes on. People adapt, banners change, and the world keeps spinning. In this new age there is no day and no night; just a never-ending twilight. The world is still a place of gods and monsters, but now without the sun overhead these horrors have moved into the cities and alleyways to prey at all hours of the day. This world still needs heroes, someone to bring a light into the dark places and to make sure the boogeyman stays in his closet. Do you have what it takes to shine?

Along with the only other survivor, a beautiful gladiator named Alexis, they encounter a civilization whose past reaches back only 1500 years. Their fortune stumbles from the start when Alexis is immediately forced to fight the nation’s berserker who underestimates his opponent, and pays dearly for it. Yet no sooner is she awarded his position, title, and wealth when she is called upon to lead the nation’s warriors in the first full scale battle she has ever experienced, against an enemy who take no prisoners. With the very real possibility of Alexis never returning, Duncan is left alone to fend for himself. Calling himself a wizard of the universe, he is brought before the Council of Prelates to explain his obvious heresy.

The one who calls down thunder and lightning from the sky is the chosen one of God and becomes the nation’s high priest. The loser dies. Angry and nervous to be cornered into an arrangement that might reveal his own heresy, Vix quickly decides to preempt the contest by having Duncan murdered. Though he survived a destroyed spaceship, can Duncan now evade assassins? Can he really call down thunder and lightning?

Blessed with a virtuoso palate, and with a seemingly limitless supply of coveted bottles, Kurniawan quickly became the leading purveyor of rare wines to the American elite. But in April 2008, at a New York auction house, dozens of Kurniawan's trophy bottles were abruptly pulled from sale.

Summary Book Review The Great Silence by Milan M. Ćirković:
Download or read book The Great Silence written by Milan M. Ćirković and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2018-05-03 with total page 416 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Great Silence explores the multifaceted problem named after the great Italian physicist Enrico Fermi and his legendary 1950 lunchtime question "Where is everybody?" In many respects, Fermi's paradox is the richest and the most challenging problem for the entire field of astrobiology and the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (SETI) studies. This book shows how Fermi's paradox is intricately connected with many fields of learning, technology, arts, and even everyday life. It aims to establish the strongest possible version of the problem, to dispel many related confusions, obfuscations, and prejudices, as well as to offer a novel point of entry to the many solutions proposed in existing literature. Ćirković argues that any evolutionary worldview cannot avoid resolving the Great Silence problem in one guise or another.
