Kurzbeschreibung




Stephen Connor, trainee Metropolitan Police detective is first on the scene when a cyclist is killed in a seemingly ordinary hit-and-run.

Just another tragedy on a London street?


Nothing seems to trouble the killer, Big Oil PR guru Greg Palmer - who treats the incident as a minor inconvenience. He is confronted by the dead girl's soulmate, Cara, whose heart breaks as she witnesses the injustice of a system that allows the killer to walk free. When she flees halfway across the world to confront Palmer, Stephen is one step behind.

Can Stephen protect Cara from a group of charismatic eco-terrorists, who try to lure her in?

Palmer thrives on burying bad news and there's no dirtier business than an oil company trying to hide a major environmental disaster.

As a publicity stunt at an oil refinery goes wrong, who will be there when Cara finds out that the target she cared so passionately about had simply moved?
Against a backdrop of London, New Zealand, Antarctica and Australia, the race begins....

5.0 von 5 Sternen terrific debut 27. Juni 2012
Von Vera Dane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
From the first chapter, where I felt it was me whizzing through London on a bike, to the gripping finale, this is a thrilling novel. The characters are intriguing and real, the textures, smells, sights, sounds of the many places we are taken are entrancing, and the story enthrals from beginning to end. The writing is remarkably assured, and a beautiful rhythm is set up between scenes of high tension, and moments of reflection. As a reader, it is such a pleasure to hand to hand yourself over to an author and say - I trust you completely, take me wherever you will. This is an exceptionally well-written debut from Lambert Nagle, and I hope they are hard at work on the next one.

This is a well-written novel which spans across a variety of continents and nations. Well-developed characters make it easy to follow and hard to put down once the intrigue starts to pull you in.
I look forward to reading the next story by Lambert Nagle.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Incredible treat for Summer! GEM! 3. Juni 2013
Von Kalpit- Best In The World - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Evolution Earth is the first novel by Debut Author Lambert Nagle.
It's hard to believe What a Brilliantly Crafted and thoughtful cinematic action novel by a Debut Author this is.

This novel is written with beautifully crafted plot that's written with shear perfection and brilliantly detailed action scenes that are exhilarating and profound.
The plot is wide yet kept tighter ranging from all the exotic locations possibly existing on planet earth, viz,
New Zealand, Antarctica , Australia, London and many great places.

A sunny London lunchtime is punctuated by a casual act of violence that has ricocheted across four continents and Stephen Connor, trainee Metropolitan Police detective is first on the scene when a cyclist is killed in a seemingly ordinary hit-and-run.
Well, Is it just another London Street Tragedy?
Well from synopsis, it seems like that, but make no mistake, This is one of the highly detailed and well crafted novel a debut author can bring.

The cast of characters can be proclaimed to be surprisingly detailed and each character has been given equal importance and taste of it's own.
Though the most sympathetic character to us was the Bangladeshi Immigrant who migrates to London and runs a courier service with his delivery boys paddling their cycle across the busy streets of London.

The co-author under the pen name Lambert kicks off the novel with a tragic accident of a cyclist, until later to suspect it's not just a mere accident.
The introduction of the Selfish corporate, Eco-friendly workers and the Police Detective makes sure the reader races through the novel to feed his intriguing mind to discover the unexpected thrill that may chill the bones.
Transporting the story right across the world in New Zealand we follow a intelligent girl Cathy who happens to be the friend and partner of the cyclist who's soul was forced quit his body after the accident.
Cathy is left with grief and sobs over the death of her partner.
Soon she finds herself with a group of Eco-terrorists.
Cathy,wanting to uncover and reveal the truth by initiating the greatest protest ever.
She tries to discover the truth about the hit and run driver.
Then comes our hero Stephen who tries to protect Cara from the despair and danger which leads the a dramatic conclusion right in Australia.

We won't give away much of the plot and story line here as it's such an enjoyable read and we leave it to the readers to unfold the story.

The twists and turns and highly unpredictable element and character to the story line is just so exciting that new truths and scenes arise as the story appears to drop down, which introduce a new dimension very occasionally.

The descriptions of the locations evoked a great imagination to visualize the locations despite I've never been to London, Antarctica, New Zealand, Australia and all the exotic like locations.
Nor was I aware that Coromandel had a drug culture as shown in the book.
My Mind could easily evoke powerful pictures from the descriptions of locations and characters, co-author Lambert have elegantly written.

The story takes place in wide part of earth, ranging from the busy Tar streets of London to the blue oceans of Australia which I can only visualize for the time being.

Evolution Earth is one such novel which has far more content and depth than the synopsis and description speaks about.
It's such a beautifully written and intro-woven story that crosses and covers four continents that readers can travel the whole world just in a matter of few hours (being stationary).

The pace of the novel was a bit of roller coaster ride for me as it was sometimes very fast paced and sometimes considerably dropped in certain sections.
Also, The intimate scene was totally unnecessary and we wish it was left out. That took me off the story for a while.

Overall,
The story revolves around exotic locations, powered by latest technology to provide a backbone and gives equal importance to all the characters but we can proudly say, we got our new hero "Stephen Connor" who hopefully will be featured in the entire series of Evolution Earth (if the co-authors are planning on writing a trilogy).
Really looking forward to read more from these co-authors in future.

All in All, Evolution earth is one such Thriller that the avid readers and thriller lovers won't afford to miss on.
It's sure to hold on the captivating audience to their seats as they discover and travel across the four continents and how dramatically the story unfolds.
Though it's a debut novel, we'll say, Evolution Earth is NOT something to me overlooked and missed.
Amazing and highly intriguing thriller by the debut co-authors.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Revolution Earth has all the makings of a bestselling novel 11. Juni 2013
Von J.C. Wing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The first chapter of Revolution Earth starts off with a bang; with a pleasant flow and wonderfully rich atmosphere...and then something terrible takes place that cements the reader's attention. Written so smoothly and unhindered that the prose feels almost like water bubbling happily in a brook, this opening scene sets up the rest of the story brilliantly. It hooked me and I became a very willing passenger in this fast paced literary ride that took me through London, New Zealand, Antarctica and Australia with colorful and fascinating detail.

It was obvious to me while reading this book that the authors are either incredibly knowledgeable about an array of different things from cycling to flying a helicopter and piloting a deep-sea boat, or they are absolutely meticulous about their research. Not only was I immersed in the enthralling atmosphere of different places I have never been, but I was submerged in the telling of events I've never taken part in with the wind whipping through my hair and the taste of the salty sea on my lips. This is, in my opinion, the best kind of writing, and Lambert Nagle achieved this beautifully.

Revolution Earth is an eco-thriller full of good guys and bad guys...and some that sit somewhere in between. It is a story that forces its reader to slow down, to pay close attention because as you are reading the prose, each character demands to be listened to. It is written in many different points of view with many players in the story and it's not clear until the tale rushes to its dramatic close how they all fit in with one another. The cast of characters that have been created here is like the contents of a fine box of gourmet chocolates; each one of them shaped and flavored a bit differently and once you meet one and savor him or her for a short while, you are eager to test out the next in the batch. I am happy to hear that this is the beginning of a series in which Stephen Connor, a police detective and a very likable character in the book, will be returning. I, for one, am ready for the next installment.

To summarize this book, in my way of thinking, would be a mistake. Before I read it, I did not know what the storyline was, except for what the brief synopsis offered. I was happy to see the story as it unfolded before me; in waves of both fast paced drama and slower, emotional passages. There are numerous chapters that take the reader from one location to the next and it is unpredictable in a very pleasing way. The writing is confident, the dialog is intriguing and the pace is good. I didn't know what was going to happen next and I rather preferred it that way. It's a solid tale from beginning to end.

It is not closed up neatly, this story. The authors, who have throughout the book, given you enough insight and humanity to their characters to make you feel as though you have become friendly with them and care about the outcomes of their lives, leave you hanging in a most frustrating way that is also quite satisfying all at the same time. Well done, Lambert Nagle. I believe you may just have a best seller on your hands.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Poetic Thrill Ride! 26. Juni 2013
Von R. Bryant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Revolution Earth does a good job of exploring major economic and environmental issues across multiple continents, all while breathing life into a host of characters required to live between two covers. From page one, I was intrigued. Nagel does a great job of engaging the reader from the very beginning. I wanted to know each character and understand every motivation behind their words, their actions, and their feelings. I must admit I grieved with Cara and when the time came, I rebelled with her. I looked forward to traveling the world with all the characters--be it on a bicycle in London or a private plane to Antarctica.

The story spans oceans and takes a seemingly simple event and introduces the webs and layers evident in a good thriller. However in Revolution Earth, those webs and layers created a complexity that resulted in a lack of fluidity at times. During certain parts the motivations behind the actions of the characters weren't explained enough and I was left feeling a bit confused.

I also struggled with the Brit/Kiwi colloquialisms that cruised high above my American understanding. However, I don't believe having to skip a few expressions/phrases in any way detracted from the story's appeal and my understanding of the plot.

Although the novel does have some opportunities, it is wildly and powerfully poetic in a way that tugs at the heart and brings a scene so vividly and recognizably close. I didn't simply read these words, I felt them: "It wasn't the getting of wisdom; it was a rendezvous with despair. She seemed to be a spectator of her own life, watching as her childhood died inside her."

After reading the story, I'm surprised the series will focus on Stephen as he wasn't the character I most wanted to reconnect with once the story came to an end. It will be interesting to see what these authors have in store for book two because based on this debut, I'm looking forward to their next release.

I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
