the shifter dimension Reviews
This book was a step outside my usual comfort zone of reading as I’ve not read many works of this nature. J.M.Johnson’s The Shifter Dimension 3 is categorized as Science Fiction> Genetic Engineering, Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban. It is all those and was a great introduction into that detailed realm.I began this series with book three and I was able to follow the story. I will be picking up and reading books 1 and 2. It’s an interesting story.
I judge a book on its ability to hold my attention and keep me hooked until the very end. The Shifter Dimension did this for me. I had never read this type of book before so at first I found the world of Shifters intriguing and as I read on I became absorbed in the credible alternate world Jackie Johnson had created. Lock Harford, is forced back onto active duty to protect his family. Working with the Secret Service and British Special Forces he sets out to track down terrorists who have a new deadly weapon. As Lock utilizes his special talents what follows is a different type of pacy thriller with lots of twists and turns as the mystery/adventure unfolds. The read is made all the more satisfying with the addition of a number of well rounded characters, goodies and baddies. An enjoyable read and highly recommended.
The Shifter Dimension, the second book in The Starbirth Series by J.M. Johnson is a fast-paced science fiction thriller that kept me guessing at every turn. Set against the backdrop of war and terrorist threats, the danger is complicated by the presence of villains with enhanced abilities. Fortunately, Lock Harford uses his skills as a Shifter to try to keep the world safe. This second book picked up where the first one left off, and the ending definitely made me eager to read the next installment. The Shifter Dimension is an excellent sci-fi thriller and is highly recommended. Five enthusiastic stars!
A paranormal military thriller. It's a bit hard for me to classify this book, as it's not in a genre I've read much in; I think the closest descriptor would be military science fiction, but of the near-future variety rather than military space opera. Lock Harford is a Shifter (i.e., teleporter) with other psychic powers including aura detection. He makes use of these abilities to lead a Special Forces team dedicated to protecting Britain from threats at home and abroad, which means sometimes going against the will of his handler, Stephen Stringer. I liked the paranormal angle in this book. It was a bit reminiscent of the X-Files and helped set the book apart from a standard military thriller. That said, Johnson clearly knows her stuff in that department, and the seemingly realistic use of military lingo and terminology provides verisimilitude without devolving into impenetrable MilSpeak. The recap of what happened in Book 1 is also skillfully done, such that even though this was the first book in the series I read, I quickly got up to speed. However, I did have some issues with the pacing, especially in the first third of the book before the team sets off for Afghanistan. There were a few too many instances where conversations between characters were summarized when I would have liked to see the dialogue written out. A couple characters like Spooky Nick and Bilton also drop out of the picture without much explanation. The characters in general aren't super-strong in this book; they're mostly crafted to play various roles, which is fine, but as a character-driven reader I could have done with a bit more. All in all, this was a pretty good military SF read; I had fun with it.
One of the best bargains I have read in a long time. Very well written and lightning fast storyline. I loved the concept of being able to listen to the cells in your body and make them respond to you. It's not often I find plots with such original concepts. I also loved.how timely the theater of battle was; the Middle East being steeped in color and intrigue ala Homeland. Excellent projection of tension. Takes great skill to make a reader get the same headache the character gets. The author is a women BTW. Pretty amazing considering the expert level of tech speak mixed with bio science. Let me suggest you not make the same mistake I did. This was book two in a series. I missed book one. So I missed some of the backstory of these unique characters. I guess I have some catching up to do.
Things are getting interesting, a very nice follow-up of the first one!
