Book Review by Toni G. Sinns
Book Title: Below
The Surface
Author: Catrina
Taylor
About the Author:
A single mom to a special needs child and his creative sister, Catrina Taylor’s
greatest passion is her family. Writing is a close second. Between the energy
devoted to running her home and creating her world, she works to make time to
read, support other writers, spend time with her sisters and extended family.This science fiction writer is a fan of the genre, and the endless
possibilities it brings.

Book Description:
Merx Tol, a resistance fighter, strives to balance life, his empathic sense,
and the protection of his people under his mother’s leadership. Everything he
desires changes the day Henessa Sar, a young woman presumed dead, appears among
the debris of a supply truck.
My
Review
Story Line: Merx
helps his mother as a resistance fighter. Finding the body of Henessa and
connecting with her as they share some common qualities turns into a short story
of connection between two strangers that are thrown together in the strangest
of ways.
Characters: Merx,
Jaylin, Henessa, Renee, Larah, Dak
My Favorite Part: There
is a section where Merx is torn between his mother and Henessa. Wanting to be
there for both and both wanting him to be there for the other. I like this part
most because it really connects you with Merx you can feel his confusion and
his frustration as he deals with his emotions and ideas or thoughts of what he
should be doing.
Overall Rating: 3
out of 5 stars. THIS IS MY OWN PERSONAL OPINION ON WHAT I LIKE. THIS MAY NOT BE
YOUR OPINION THUS I ADVISE YOU TO READ THE BOOK AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND. Now
on to my opinion, this is a short story so there is very little room to go into
huge amounts of information and still get the story in. I think Catrina did a
wonderful job on her story. However, I am the type that likes to know more
behind my characters. Again personal opinion. You do get small bits of
information randomly here and there. The story unfolds the connection between
Merx and Henessa. Ending with Merx making the ultimate choice and growing into
the man he was raised to be.
