"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato

“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving

“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume

“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison

“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière

“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine

“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


On Silver Wings (Hayden War Cycle #1) by Evan C. Currie

On Silver Wings - Evan Currie

I think it was better than I expected in some areas. I loved the fighting and thought they were nicely written. Both the ground and space battles. I'm curious as to the goal of the invading aliens, what they seek and why and not to mention who they are.

I think Sorilla was a great character and I enjoyed her scenes. However I'm not a fan of dual, or in this case multi POVs and there was a lot, so I have subtracted ½ a star from my final rating. I can deal with a few POVs sometimes, but they were literally all over the place and galaxy. It helped that they were relative short. I'm very interested in book 2, some day.
