*Read Pdf Ì The Charge õ When the King of the Texas Empire kidnaps Warren s brother, Warren embarks into a still Wild West to save him On his journey, he makes a discovery that changes his life forever he and his brother are long lost members of the Texas royal family and the King wants them both dead He gets help from an activist Texan named Lena, who s itching to take on the King and happens to be a beautiful firecracker Warren can t stay away from Convincing her he s not one of the bad guys becomes harder when a mysterious energy stirs in his body, turning his brain into a hive of emotions and memories not all his own A legacy of violence is not all he inherited from the brutal Kings of Texas The myth that the royal family possesses supernatural powers may not be myth at allGone are the days when choosing a major was a big deal Now Warren must save his brother and choose whether or not to be King, follow a King, or die before he can retire his fake ID I would first like to say that I am partial to any story that is layered with politics, especially one that pits democracy against monarchy I majored in Political Science and love fictional politics real stuff not so much So after reading the blurb I was excited to read Sharon s book Not only does she know how to write a compelling blurb ha ha ha what a great figure of speech , she writes a damn fine book Great job, Sharon The characters were well developed I really rooted for Warre I would first like to say that I am partial to any story that is layered with politics, especially one that pits democracy

compelling blurb ha ha ha what a great figure of speech , she writes a damn fine book Great job, Sharon The characters were well developed I really rooted for Warren and Lena and even found myself occasionally cheering for the bad guys.I enjoy the way Sharon constructed the story Her use of third person narrative while occasionally changing the focal character gives the story an immediacy and helps to keep things fresh and interesting.There were times when I was reading where, had the character and I been talking, we would have said the same thing at the same time I would have been owed lots of Cokes if you don t know what that means, then I m sorry, you had no childhood maybe you re a robot or a Caebellum you ll have to read the book to find out what a Caebellum is.Additionally, I really liked the alternate history aspect of The Charge The Texas Empire who doesn t feel giddy whenever those words are next to each other It sounds like it should have some Ben Hur timpani along with it.Sharon also left room for a sequel thank you I ll definitely be reading it while still managing to tie up enough loose ends to give a satisfying end.There s also some romantic tension for all you lovers of the mushy stuff too not enough to overwhelm or detract from the story, but enough to sweeten things up and which I would have missed were it not there.I can easily see The Charge as a bestseller I have already recommended it to my seventeen year old son I don t think I even need to say it, but this book gets 6 stars out of 5 my version of 11, as in it s one louder I absolutely loved this book I will admit that the first thing that appealed to me was the cover Yes, I know not to judge a book by its cover, but I was lured in by the blue storm clouds and the sign for entering the Texas Empire Once I started reading I was hooked and could not put it down Going to work was near impossible, and sleep is overrated anyway The story tells an alternate history of the United States, where one small change caused an entire shift in what we know about history Te I absolutely loved this book I will admit that the first thing that appealed to me was the cover Yes, I know not to judge a book by its cover, but I was lured in by the blue storm clouds and the sign for entering the Texas Empire Once I started reading I was hooked and could not put it down Going to work was near impossible, and sleep is overrated anyway The story tells an alternate history of the United States, where one small change caused an entire shift in what we know about history Texas, as well as some of its territories such as California and Arizona, have succeeded from the United States back in the 1800 s I think Texas is now a Monarchy, run by the Wilde family They are aggressive in what they want as well as how they go about to get it, causing the Texas kingdom capitol to be bombed by America roughly 18 years before hand The book is set in the present day, with the same technology and issues we have now, but with an internal conflict with Texas, instead of being unified Warren, the main character, is a laid back 18 year old who lives in an apartment while attending college He discovers his 16 year old genius brother Lucas has been abducted from his mother s apartment, causing Warren to trace Lucas steps to find why and who has taken him All Warren wants is to find his brother and return to his predictable happy life.Lena is a spokes person for the Free Texas movement, wanting America to help the people of Texas rebuild what they destroyed with the bomb She happens to be dating the President of the United States son Will, who most people believe is to further her cause She ultimately wants to help her people, since she was smuggled out of Texas as a child Lena and Warren end up meeting and joining together on the same fight, even if it is begrudgingly There are many other characters, as well as the book being told from different view points, which helped the reader get insight as well as move the story along quickly This is not at all my regular type of book, but I am glad I picked it up to read because it was so interesting Everything about the book was unique, from the premise to the character interactions, to the supernatural scientific developments I really enjoyed the book and I hope that there is another one to make it a series because the end was satisfying, but it would make a great continuation about what Warren does with his life I will readby this author anytime.I received this book from the publishers via Netgalley in exchange for

running through the scenes and picturing what it would be like to live in a place like the Texas Empire When I read stories like this one, I always find myself wishing my imagination worked the way some of these authors imaginations work Creating such an alternate reality like that, down to even the smallest details, is something that always makes me shake my head in awe and wonder It takes such a talent, and THE CHARGE was no exception I never felt confused or lost Sharon s Texas Empire was amazing and I could picture it as if it was so I can t wait to see this story continue, and watch Warren step into his new roll with Lena buy his side I love the two of them equally, and can t wait to see their stories unfold I m assuming there s a second book in the works, right Sharon RIGHT My only complaint would be that because I m a huge fan of first person, I would have preferred to see this written in the dual POVs of Warren and Lena I think it would have amped up a few of the scenes, particularly in the romance area Which, if I m being honest, I would have likedof But I think we all know that I pretty much just want all romance all the time, with a small hint of paranormal or fantasy, and then back to the kissing lol Regardless, this was easily a five star read for me, and I can hope that we ll see a bitromance in the next book hint hint I was lucky enough to recieve an advanced copy of The Charge and am excited to give it four stars.The Charge takes the reader into a future where Texas is no longer a part of the USA and the leaders of the territory have altered their DNA so they have advanced intellegence, strength, and a variety of other traits that make them stronger than the regular citizen In addition they give off an electrical charge when you are near
