3.0 out of 5 stars i prefer the previous singer mario, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood Of Legends (Audio CD)
i liked this album to be fair and honest. however, despite the the epicness and the supremely guitar work and even the tempo changes in which batlleroar were unique in providing in their previous albums, the new vocalist did not fit at all with battleroar espacially if you listen to death far and beyond album and feel the unique pitch and even semi operatic skills of Mario which was synchronized magically with battleroar music in which i couldn't find it here at all .


The Quest for the Red Prince
The Quest for the Red Prince
by Michael Barak
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars not what i've expected, 5 Jun 2014
overall, i expected from the title of this book that the main issue will be ali salamah and how thet racked him down with detaled background of the person. however, onky starting chpater 8 of this book we began to know the ins and outs of how mossad began to track him down with only need to know basis . the book opened with little background of ali's father and the mufti of jerusalem and the palistinian attacks on the jews in pre 1948 and not to forget the munich 1972 and the kdnapping and then killings of israeli athlets which triggered the hunt for the red quest . however, i did no get any added information as all what the authors provided you can find it in steven spilberg mouvie MUNICH wich was baed on another book written about the topic involved. in terms of information i did not grasp any added supplements eept in terms of historical role of mufti of jerusalem Mr husaini and hi role in israeill/palistinian struggle. last but not least, despite the disadvanatges in terms of lacking details i recommend it for anyone intersted in methodogy of mossad in assassinations


The Sign And The Seal: Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant
The Sign And The Seal: Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant
by Graham Hancock
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 questions i have for Mr Hancock, 20 April 2014
FIRSTLY, LET ME START BY SAYING that I just finished reading the sign the seal and I have some questions. Bearing in mind that the author has relied only if I am not mistaken to three primary sources for the disappearance of the ark of covenant: the bible itself, perceval’ s literature novel written by .. And the book CALLED kebra nagast translated by E.A Wallis budges. Now my question is whether these three sources are enough to authenticate that the ark was really put in Solomon temple and then disappeared again. Moreover, as far as I am concerned there is no ultimate confirmation even after some excavations which had been done before in Jerusalem below the Aqsa mosque has revealed or proved that the temple of Solomon, in which the ark supposedly should inside it in the holy of holies, had been built or existed.

Secondly, if the ark of covenant is really in ETHIOPIA, WHY ISRAIL DID NOT CLAIME IT YET UNTIL NOW?

I WISH THAT Mr. Hancock can answer these questions and explain why.

Thirdly. Although I enjoyed this book tremendously and it sounds like an Indian Jones adventure or rather as sir GAWIAN’s search for the Holy Grail novel, there are many lapses and pitfalls that are hard to ignore, one of these discrepancies is what the author has mentioned in the latest chapter that kebra nagast is full of inconsistencies and myths .


The Skystone (The Camulod Chronicles)
The Skystone (The Camulod Chronicles)
by Jack Whyte
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars welcome to the Arthurian world, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all let me start by saying that I am an avid reader of king Arthur novels and I had assembled through last decade a huge collection in my library shelves including E WHITE QUADRLOGY THE SWORD AND THE STONE. In this regard, Having read so far Bernard Cornwell's king Arthur trilogy, Stephen lawhead king Arthur's pentalogy books , the classic story king Arthur and the round table , I decided to start with the first book of Jack Whyte's the Camulod chronicles : the skystone .eventually, the story sets long time before the birth of king Arthur and although it was odd for me but definitely it wasn't disappointing at all as the events in the novel are synchronized with saga of what we know the roman empire in its decaying episode and here another angle was added to the classical king Arthur traditional stories' consortium . I enjoyed this book page by page and I couldn't put it down as the main character Varrus is caught in web of events and circumstances in which he will plays an integral if not an essential role in shaping Britain destiny and helps creating a supernatural legend in which this book provides only the skystone element of it but still a gripping one in a well page turner storytelling that makes the reader spell-pounded.


Mafia Kingfish
Mafia Kingfish

4.0 out of 5 stars one of the primary books on JFK assassination, 12 Mar 2014
This review is from: Mafia Kingfish (Hardcover)
Mafia kingfish stands out as solid breathtaking book at revealing and even shattering information of who are involved in JFK assassination . in this regard, the author has maliciously proved without a shadow doubt that the mafia in the person of Carlos Marcello was definitely the major conspirator .informatively, the author has meticulously showed in detailed manner the links between carlos , david ferry , jack ruby and Oswald’s uncle on one hand , on the other hand the author also has recapped the events from first of November until the assassination day especially the number of calls placed and received by jack ruby prior to killing Oswald and the presence of David ferry in Dallas just after the assassination of JFK.

ALSO, the shattering effect that JOHN Garrison who set the ball to different direction to CIA as primary suspect, was receiving gifts and free hotel bookings from carlos which indirectly speak volumes THAT CARLOS MARCELLO WAS MOVING HEAVEN AND EARTH TO HIDE HIS HAND not to mention the political influence and connection he had with major governors and lobbyists .

Last but not least what I mentioned above are just tips of the iceberg of how much revealing this book is . I enjoyed reading it and I advise everyone who is interested to know about JFK assassination to read this book ASAP.


Robert Ludlum's The Moscow Vector: A Covert-One Novel
Robert Ludlum's The Moscow Vector: A Covert-One Novel
by Robert Ludlum
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.69

4.0 out of 5 stars creeping scenario, 19 Feb 2014
bearing in mind the long political and even economical conflict in the cold war saga between USA AND USSR THE FORMER SOVIET UNNION OF RUSSIA and taking together the current situation especially the Russian American disarray over Syria and Syria's ultimate acceptance to get rid of her biological weapons, one can not ignore these thoughts once he starts reading this gripping page turner novel. RUSSIA NOWADAYS, is becoming a greater nuisance to the western world especially the state especially its magnificent economic resurrection in Puttin saga and the Ukrainian political situation. The sequence of events in this novel is shattering and the scenario is frightening and it might we might get some bits and pares of it in the future as biological warfare rings so many bells and I am pretty sure that it has been discussed in one of the pentagon's war games scenarios . the novel itself is gripping one as the colonel is trying to locate this biological weapon which gives anyone who owns it a skyrocketing advantage and it's important to compare the military preparations for invasion and hitler campaigns as we can see the author is trying to make paralleled military analogue between Nazi Germany and his Russian's rise of power.


Destination Brain
Destination Brain
by Isaac Asimov
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars relatively a good sequel, 13 Sep 2013
basically , I was interested to buy this book as a sequel to his previous novel fantastic voyage. however, the scenario did not change at all although the characters differs . still the book , like its predecessor , is full of scientific and even historical information one can snatch from the scientific conversations between each other in the novel.

in terms of political perspective in the us/soviet clash of the titans in the technology race, we see the Russian(soviet union previously) had the scientific advantage over the states in terms of miniaturization and not vice versa, bearing in mind that one missing card they didn't have :the American neurologist who will complete the jigsaw in the puzzle. so even though the Russians had the upper hand they still need the Americans of course the clash of the two poles seems to switch to mutual coordination under the eyes of both governments

overall, the book was a good read although it did not match his foundation series and the scenario itself has lots of melodrama and psychological insinuations .

5.0 out of 5 stars for a frecnh metal band exceeidingly magnifciant and probably their best album so far, 2 Aug 2013
This review is from: Cosmovision (Audio CD)
well i've got in touch with nightmare in seeing them in live concert in dubai rock festival 2013 and their performance was magnificiant as ever and the singer performance was outsdanding and he reminded me of ronnie james dio. this album in metal persrpective has tremendous edge and quality so the extent i keplt listening to it for 6 weeks day by day and it's hard to pick up a best song , all of them are greate espacially cemetary road it has a cunning guitar solo and singing style similarly to dio. also i liked kill in christ name the 9th track which reminded me of faces in the window from dio's deam evil album. overall ,this album has all the quality it takes to bes on of a hell music espacially with keybors anf choirs medias touch.

i recommended it for any real metal fan and it's worth every penny


Gates of Thorbardin (Heroes)
Gates of Thorbardin (Heroes)
by Dan Parkinson
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars not of what i expecyed, 14 Jun 2013
ok although the bulk of the story is finding the mask of gallen and saves the gates of thorbardin, however, unforntunately, the dwarven war was never chronichled in ay manifestation and the the impersernation or rather incarnation of gallen was never detaoled in a way to see how gallen has fought in his war. Moreover, the storyline was poorly adventerous in a sense of swordmanship and epical war vortex.

to say the least, i liked the story as we can never deny that there was some aspects of heroic deeds for the main charachter .

The King's Sacrifice (Star guardians)
by Margaret Weis
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars religous?, 22 Mar 2013
margaret weis books had always added fuel to my desiring fire hunger to read more for her and king sacrafice is no exception. king sacrafice the third book of star series continue the turn of events into more dramatic and even more heroic scales . i always enjoyed this series and although the author has shifted to a different category she stills hold the key to open the doors to the sacred heart as ronnie james dio the king of the mountains sings.
