[Ebook] Finding Balance (Task Force: Gaea, #1) By David Berger – Writerscompany.co.uk

Finding Balance (Task Force: Gaea, #1) I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I have always admired writing that takes well trodden themes and character archetypes and finds new ways to make them interesting David Berger certainly achieves this in volume one of his series My interest in Greek mythology has always been cursory at best However, this story was so interesting that I found myself researching the mythology while I was reading the book I was so invested in the world created by Berger that I just had to knowand see where he took his inspiration from.I l I have always admired writing that takes well trodden themes and character archetypes and finds new ways

found myself researching the mythology while I was reading the book I was so invested in the world created by Berger that I just had to knowand see where he took his inspiration from.I love good storytelling The actual subject of a story is secondary in my opinion How you tell your story and your passion for it are the most important aspects of writing to me A fantastic story can be ruined if put in the wrong hands While reading this wonderfully thought out story and the detailed characters My favorite being Brandon Jeffries A.K.A ZODIAK that make up Task Force Gaea the passion of the storyteller wasthan evident.I am eagerly anticipating the next installment of this excellent series During The Age Of Olympos, When A Vengeful Goddess Shatters The Sacred Scales, Both Immortals And Humans Alike Suffer Apollo, The God Of Truth, Goes From A Glorious Existence As The Shining One To A Victim Of Zeus Wrath, And His Journey Makes Him Question His Godhood, His Role In The Cosmos, And

Gaea Can Mortals Succeed Where Gods Cannot Go The Review So when I write you read this it might seem a little rumbled up to you, so I ll try my best to organize it to your understanding If it s a

little rumbled up to you, so I ll try my best to organize it to your understanding If it s a problem I can rewrite it The first Part is Apollo s story, in only Apollos view really At the first it was a little confusing reading from his point since it wasdescribing then showing Instead of seeing much of the surrounding we saw and heard what Apollo saw and thought This was a good set up to get the reader into the story and wonder how balance will be found again And it ends just on the point of driving the reader mad.The second part We re introduced to the characters of the prophecy This is when it stops being descriptive and we see the characters and their thought patterns.Each character acquires a gift or a certain power in some way Their stories behind them were what i found most fascinating about the books Each individual character was given a good in depth personality and we see apollo from a different point of view.The book like all book would drag at points, but isn t that normal Well it didn t drag very much since it was smoothly pushed into another scene or event or action fight SOme scenes would end rather abrupt and it felt like they had lost some of their meaning.Overall it was a good read and the artwork at the end was a surprise This was an amazing book It took awhile for me to get really invested, but once I did, it was a great journey to be on Lots of rich world building This was a muchadult universe than the Percy Jackson books, which I love immensely I loved Apollo s journey and meeting the core four characters Almost would ve liked to have met them earlier, but I thinking about it, I feel you can t really enter their world without finding out how everything got to be the way it is Trying to be as vague This was an amazing book It took

everything got to be the way it is Trying to be as vague as possible here Seriously though, I totally recommend this book As far as interesting goes, it was a good book It kept me on my toes, I was definitely surprised when each character began to figure out the prophecy, and it had a little bit of romance with Apollo and Alkinoe which is sort of a necessity for me It was sort of a difficult read for me because I don t know much about mythology besides the really common names like Zeus and some others So while I really enjoyed it, it was a slow read because I was constantly trying to

did instill some motivation on me to take a mythology class sometime in the next semester at school.Overall though I really liked the story and I can not wait for the sequel Wow What an adventure As a fan of Greek and Roman mythology I enjoyed Mr Berger s new spin on the gods Especially found his use of flash back flash forward interesting not only can I see task Force Gaea turned into a graphic novel I would certainly read this with my kids in the hopes of getting them hooked on mythology, fantasy and science fiction. Add one part mystery, one part intrigue, one part adventure Throw in the Greek Gods of Myth and compelling heroes and you get Task Force Gaea Finding Balance An excellent first effort from author David Berger Highly recommended for people who love adventure, ancient myths and heroes Much anticipation for the next chapter. After discovering that my daughter s high school English teacher had written a fantasy novel based on Greek mythology, I couldn t resist both reading it and recommending it to my book club this month This book is intriguing on several levels Greek mythology has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember Growing up with my Mom, a high school English teacher with a special passion for Edith Hamilton, has something to do with that I suppose and now, I teach early Western Humanities After discovering that my daughter s high school English teacher had written a fantasy novel based on Greek mythology, I couldn t resist both reading it and recommending it to my book club this month This book is intriguing on several levels Greek mythology has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember Growing up with my Mom, a high school English teacher with a special passion for Edith Hamilton, has something to do with that I suppose and now, I teach early Western Humanities on the college level, so of course the belief systems of ancient civilizations are addressed in my classes So to be able to immerse myself in a fantasy revolving around Apollo s world was of course lots of fun The first portion of this book goes heavily into Greek mythology, so of course curiosity about this topic is a must here I especially like the contemporary Task Force characters and I enjoyed reading about how an archaeologist, a zoologist, an animal geneticist and a creative potter turn into Greek like superheros who get to experience a whole space time continuum paradox I hope to readabout their lives and adventures in the next book in this series since we only get to spend time with them for a portion of the book The adventures of both the deities of the Greek pantheon as well as those of Danelos, Sarah, Brandon Aleta would also translate REALLY well into a graphic novel.A great debut novel by Mr Berger If you re a fan of Greek mythology, superhero comics, or both, you ll absolutely love this engaging novel The chapters seeped in classical mythology will have you wondering which parts are straight from antiquity and which Berger has seamlessly and cleverly added Those set in modern times echo the best of modern DC and Marvel origin stories and event comics There are a lot of great ideas at play mythic locales, magical relics, alternate universes, freak lab accidents andThroughout If you re a fan of Greek mythology, superhero comics, or both, you ll absolutely love this engaging novel The chapters seeped in classical mythology will have you wondering which parts are straight from antiquity and which Berger has seamlessly and cleverly added Those set in modern times echo the best of modern DC and Marvel origin stories and event comics There are a lot of great ideas at play mythic locales, magical relics, alternate universes, freak lab accidents andThroughout, its clearly evident Berger has a great love and understanding of all his source material.While there s a relatively long build up for such an action packed and briskly paced third act, Berger does a wonderful job building his characters up and gives them plenty of obstacles to overcome as they progress By the end you ll definitely be rooting for the team he assembles, and dying to find outabout the two shocking twists he leaves you with.The prose can be challenging for a casual reader, but if you re a logophile it will be right up your alley Berger does a great job keeping things in context, but I d recommend using a reading app with a robust dictionary, or keeping a physical copy nearby Overall this is a wonderfully exciting read that I highly recommend I m looking forward to starting the next installment ASAP
