HIDDEN DOORS, SECRET ROOMS [Kindle Edition] by Jamie Eubanks
Could not get into the book at all, not really my genre, the description read like a Mystery but it is more Science Fiction/Science Fantasy. Jamie creates such an over-the-top main character in John Mills, I was beginning to wonder when he would be bouncing bullets off his chest, bending steel with his hands and breaking stone with his forehead. On the other hand is Jill, a modern day Methuselah with apparent powers that defy modern medicine and physics. Just unrealistic characters in a landscape that reads like it is on one of Earth’s poles.
Jamie is a creative enough writer to draw me in with marvelous landscape descriptions, a bit of paranormal to want me to keep reading but lost me at the superhuman-ness of the two characters, along with the typical by-the-book bad guy government agents. What I dislike in some books, is that the government is typically the black hat wearing, menacing bad guys, the book is usually so trite that I don’t care to gets killed or what the prize is that everyone is fighting for.
Great start, but crosses too many genres. I give two stars.
