D-Nine by Magus Tor Book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

You guys know how I always say that I love reading, and well I was pleased to get the opportunity to review another book for free in exchange for my honest review.

The eBook is called D-Nine and it is by an author named Magus Tor. 

Here is the author's brief synopsis:

What if you wake up one day and found out that you are of the opposite gender?

James is suffering from bouts of headache and the latest one gives him an experience of a life-time. He gets to become a girl but it comes with a price, his or rather her life is in constant danger as assassins hunt after her. He needs to find out who is behind this before his and her life becomes forfeited. In the midst of adventure he also needs to face with another difficult situation, love from another guy. Will he survives the conspiracy or death is a welcome solution to his forbidden love.

What I Thought About This Book

Let's start with the cover. When I saw the cover I thought it had a nice design but I had no idea what was going on. After reading the whole book, it now makes a lot of sense and actually made me like the artwork a lot more. 

I read the synopsis above, and I thought, Hmm...this sounds kind of funny and interesting at the same time. It made me laugh a little. "James gets to become a girl....he also needs to face with another difficult situation, love from another guy..."
D-Nine started off by jumping right into James' dilemma dealing with his excruciating headache. The author did a great job in making me feel as though it was me with the headache because it was very detailed. I actually can relate to James' pain, since as a teenager, I suffered from random bouts of horrible headaches. Not fun! I instantly felt a tiny bit sympathetic for the main character.

The story jumps back and forth between two entirely different lives and eras- one as a female character in a Renaissance-like time and the other as an ill male doctor in a more modern time period. A splitting headache or blackout comes about and suddenly he/she is back as the other gender.  Nice way of writing a story, I think.
At first the switching back and forth confused me a little. I didn't really know what was going on. It could simply be because I was pretty busy on the days that I was reading and didn't have enough time to really focus on what I was reading---not the author's fault at all. When I finally had the chance to really sit down and read the book, I understand exactly what was going on...and
I wanted to read more.
" May I have a mirror, please?" The words croaked out from my quivering mouth. I just realized that they were in a voice I did not recognize. One of the maids walked to the dressing table and brought back a mirror.
It was a terrible mistake. The reflection was not the one that I had expected. It was a face that I failed to recognize. The image of a blond teenager with straight, long hair like corn silk would have been a pleasing sight before, but not right now. Not when it was my reflection. I threw the mirror to the end of the bed and buried my face in the pillow. Tears of confusion and fear flowed uncontrollably, emotions just overwhelmed me. (Chapter 2)

 Throughout the book I found that both lives were rather interesting, one a lot more elaborately detailed than the other. I found myself favoring the female character's life, not necessarily because I am a female as well, but really because she just had so much more going on. She had this action packed journey with a ton of exciting twists and turns. The male character, not so much fun stuff. His life was a bit more depressing due to his condition.

The story was a good one. I enjoyed reading it. I did find myself laughing at several points throughout the book because it is pretty comical at times.

"Here, this is for you." He passed the bouquet to me. I opened my mouth to tell him I didn't like flowers, that I gave girls flowers, that I'd thought he had wanted to ask my advice-and shut my mouth on it all. It wouldn't kill me to let him down gently......"They are pretty. But I'm not really interested."I passed it back to him immediately. Carrying a bouquet of flowers was not what I was willing to do, at least not walking among the crowd. "Okay." He sounded disappointed and rather hurt by the rejection, but recovered himself almost immediately. I got the impression that he was somewhat offended but let it pass. (Chapter 16)  
 Haha. A guy in a girl's body, receiving flowers from another guy. Might weird out a guy or two in real life if it happened to them, right?- Made me laugh a bit.

 I mean, come on, could you imagine what it would possibly be like if you sporadically woke up as the opposite gender, in a completely different time period? Talk about confusing and scary! The author did a nice job though and threw in some funny bits.
 There was a good amount of action throughout the book as well.

My only issue--
I personally feel that the ending was cut short. You do have options to pick from, but both are fairly short and I kind of wish there had been more to the story. 

This book was a quick read since there are not too many pages. It was a fun read though. I would really like to read something else by Magus Tor in the near future.
There were a few very minor typos in a couple of chapters, but this has been common in most of the Kindle books I've been reading. Nothing that can't be easily fixed. They're not so bad that they disrupt the flow of the story.

(there are copies available in both paperback and kindle version)

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
