Kurzbeschreibung

21. Oktober 2011
Sexy private eye Gaia Charmer brings new meaning to the words "Earth Angel." This mysterious (and bipolar) bombshell has the power of the Earth itself at her fingertips, but the murder of her best friend knocks her world off its axis. Out for blood on the killer’s trail, Gaia and a tough-as-nails rock hound sheriff must overcome Landkind--a secret society of movers and shakers with the hearts and minds of landforms (mountains, rivers, islands, etc.)--and a vicious enemy with the key to her true identity. She risks everything to reclaim her legacy as Mother Earth in human form. A woman with the weight of the world on her shoulders in more ways than one. Don't miss this edgy, exciting, and surprising paranormal urban fantasy by award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected fantasy that really packs a punch. Reviews "Robert Jeschonek is the literary love child of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman--his fiction is cutting edge, original, and pulsing with dark and fantastical life. His stories suck me in and refuse to let me go until the last page, even as his characters are busy stealing my heart." – Adrian Phoenix, critically acclaimed author of The Maker's Song series and Black Dust Mambo Robert T. Jeschonek "sees the world like no one else sees it, and makes incredibly witty, incisive stories out of that skewed worldview." – Mike Resnick, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of the Starship series About the Author Robert T.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining UF title 10. Juni 2011
Von Shelleyrae - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A travel agent with some unusual clientele, Gaia Charmer has a special affinity with the earth, she is able to move and affect geological structures. Her past is a mystery but she has made a life for herself with the support of Duke and friends like Aggie. When Aggie is murdered, baked in a shell of volcanic ash, Gaia is determined to find the leader of Groundswell and stop the threat he poses to the existence of humanity.

Earthshaker is an entertaining story with original elements that I found intriguing. Jeschonek's mythology includes nymphs, gods and goddesses and LandKind, who are the spirits that inhabit geological areas, and whose essence inhabit human avatars. The plot is solid, though there were areas that could have benefited from more detail. The story is driven by Gaia, using the first person point of view, which I find tends to result in a focused narrative that isn't as roundly developed as I prefer. Yet I appreciated the intimacy of the perspective that gave insight into her character and motivations.
I initially found Gaia a little abrasive yet as her character was revealed I came to appreciate her straightforward attitude. Gaia's sometimes blunt and abrupt manner hides a fierce desire to do the right thing, she is intensely loyal to her friends and willingly puts herself at risk to protect (or avenge) them. Gaia makes for a strong heroine and I was intrigued by the puzzle of her identity and her mysterious relationship to the villain.
Gaias' power over Earth is an interesting one, something a little different for the Urban Fantasy genre and Jeschonek grounds it well in basic science. It makes for some exciting action scenes, particularly at the climax.
I felt the supporting characters could have been a little stronger. I would have liked the opportunity to learn more about love interest Sheriff Briar, the relationship between the two is almost incidental to the plot and I couldn't invest in it. I also thought Duke, a Golem, could have played a more active role in the story. In general however, I felt Jeschonek included an interesting variety of characters and the self proclaimed King of Landkind proved to be a worthy nemesis.

Earthshaker is an urban fantasy novel that combines original myth, fast paced action and a gutsy heroine to create an entertaining read. While the genre is a competitive one, I believe this quality small press title deserves a place on your TBR list.
4.0 von 5 Sternen great book 9. Februar 2011
Von Canadian Book Addict - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this book and it was an other one I couldn't put down. It was so well written and everything so well described that I really got into the book and when I was done I wanted to read more of Robert's books. I will definitely be buying some of his books as soon as I get a bunch of the books I have to review done.
4.0 von 5 Sternen ingenious character for a PI 16. Februar 2011
Von deadbear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Incredibly original take on a PI series where earth is populated by humans and mythological gods and godesses. The mix becomes both powerful and scary when someone starts killing off the Earthland gods in charge of keeping our world spinning.
RP Dahlke, A DEAD RED CADILLAC
