Natasha

Natasha's passion for reading was kindled by her parents and the local library that allowed her family to checkout 50 books at a time. She first fell in love with fantasy through Arthurian retellings whereas her love for science fiction began with Star Wars novels. Nowadays, she still spends her free time reading but also gaming, running a blog (natrosette), and obsessing over TV shows. Maybe if she spent as much time reading as she does looking for books to read, she'd actually make a dent in her TBR.

The Midas Effect by Manuel Dorado - Book Review 29, Apr

The Midas Effect by Manuel Dorado is based on the premise of a Midas – a seemingly all-powerful being who can make anything they imagine become reality through the use of quantum inflection. Other quantum inflexors exist too with varying levels of ability. Vladimir, an ex-KGB agent and current leader of the top-secret Project, has been studying quantum inflection and searching for a Midas all his life. At last, he has found someone he believes to be a Midas, a Spaniard named Miguel. Vladimir sends his best researcher Monica, who is a quantum inflexor herself, to lure Miguel in, and eventually, under the oversight of the CIA, they convince him to voluntarily join the Project. Things seem to be going well, aside from the small hiccup of Monica and Miguel falling in love. However, once it is proven that Miguel is a Midas, it comes to light that the CIA has very different plans for him.
