The Circle.
Other Earth.

The world from Thomas Hunter’s dreams. Or are they?
Ted Dekker returns to Other Earth and The Circle Series, one of my favourite book series to this day.

Even though it’s been a number of years since Black, Red, White, and Green – The 49th Mystic has the exact same feeling when you read it.

Rachelle Matthews is the main character this time around. Born blind, they try to fix her sight, but what happens is so much more. When Thomas Hunter died, that was just the beginning.

This book is heart pounding from the first page to the last, just like any other Ted Dekker book and you’ll be transported back to the familiar places and the familiar characters we all know and love.

Ted Dekker writes with the same passion and intensity never wavers. You’ll be gripped to the book right from the first page and trust me, you won’t want to put the book done. This book nails a lot of things on the head. You can read it without having to have read the four previous books, but I would absolutely recommend reading Black, Red, White and Green. You’ll understand the story a whole lot better, plus anything that you might be wondering about will be revealed a whole lot better.

The 49th Mystic is the first of two books in the Beyond The Circle series. Both books will be released in the same year. All of the heart racing, mind exploding action you’ve come to expect, plus a lot of whole new things to expect. It has everything you want in a book, and Ted Dekker writes it in such an absolutely beautiful way.
Definitely, an action-packed thriller that you want to read until the very last page. It’s something that you won’t want to miss.

Samson movie review

Standard

One of the newest Biblical movies, Samson is a story of betrayal, heartache and redemption.

 

This visual adaption is quite strong and absolutely powerful.
This review is based on a clip of the movie that was viewed. The images that this shows is of power. Everyone who has been to Sunday knows the story of Samson, and this does a really great job of showing it. The casting does a great job portraying the characters that they are representing. I have not seen the full movie yet but this is one that I cannot wait to see.

One Dominon Book Review

wishing-you-a-super-special-birthday

I am a proud Canadian, seriously. Hearing about this book and the history of the Church in this great country it  is a must read for Christians, for people who enjoy history, and it’s a great book for anyone who is proud to be a Canadian!

This book traces the history of the church from the start of this great land up to the present moment and everything in this book is just simply beautiful especially all of the photographs and images used within these pages.

It is definitely a perfect gift for any Canadian for this special 150 Birthday

It is definitely worth a 5 out of 5 stars!

Invitation book review

Standard

When I first started reading this, I wasn’t sure what to expect. As I got into it though, it was amazing. I really enjoy stories, but I’ve never read a book like this with four stories blended to make one.

All of the authors involved take a character, and write their own book. This was originally 4 separate novellas but brought together in one book. It’s quite easy to read as you can read each “book” in a day. As you keep reading though, you might get sucked into it like I did. Where all the stories weave into one, but each story is different. The storytelling is absolutely beautiful. All of the authors are great individually but they have come together. It’s a story of a spiritual battle but done in a really great way. I would definitely recommend it for everyone to read.

I definitely give this book a 4/5 stars!

Dear Chris Chibnall and BBC,

Standard

In my previous post, I mentioned an article I was reading it mentioned that you wanted more of a younger person to play the Doctor and that you wanted to bring back the David Tennant years.

Here’s the most simplest solution – Bring back David Tennant. Now wasn’t that easy?

It also makes mention of wanting someone in their 30’s, so if that’s the case, then Tennant’s out since he’s 45.

Here’s another idea – Matt Smith. From what I read he really wants to come back. The Doctor has never had the same face twice. Series 9, The Doctor stated that he had chosen this face to remember. Why not make that a storyline?

A New Companion?

Standard

I knew that they were looking for a new Doctor, but just reading an article now mentions that Pearl Mackie, who is playing Bill, will be leaving at the Christmas Special. Trying to make everything new for the new writer. Here’s the link to the article, it mentions the companion near the end of it – http://www.doctorwhotv.co.uk/rumour-13th-doctor-a-dashing-male-actor-in-his-30s-83719.htm

Anyways, Here is my vote for who should be the companion – Osgood. I’ve been rewatching series 9 as I just purchased it on Blu-ray. Anyways, at the end of the Zygon invasion 2 parter, The Doctor asks Osgood if she wants to come along, to travel through time and space. You can tell that she’s very excited but the offer is declined, saying she needs to stay to protect the boxes, protect the planet,

There’s two Osgood’s though, the one that was Clara changed into Osgood the first Zygon Osgood was killed. So why not have the real Osgood travel through time and space with The Doctor and the Zygon Osgood stay on Earth to protect the boxes. Problem solved.

The Next Doctor

Standard

Since it’s been announced that Peter Capaldi isn’t going to be returning for a 4th series, the internet’s been running around with who should be the next Doctor. So many different names have been floating around. The last little while though, the idea of a female Doctor has been around, and hey they did it with the master. Certain Former Doctors have backed a different female, and I don’t want to be rude, I just don’t think any of the names would make a good Doctor.

Here’s my choice for a female Doctor – Catherine Tate reprising her role as Donna Noble.

If I remember right, if she thinks about The Doctor and everything she explodes. But WHAT IF, in the 12th Doctor’s dying days, the Tardis reaches out to her and she comes, she becomes the 13th Doctor, she would have both sets of memories and it would mske for anabsolutely crazy storyline, kinda like the Prisoner 0 thing from Matt Smith’s run, but something that would last over numerous seasons.

It would make for an amazing story.
