Sinossi

New to the series? Start with A Question of Will.
---
[Book 2 of 8]
It was his mission to save her life. 
But first... he'd need to convince her that hers was a life worth saving.


Will Stark finds himself on a mission. He must use his new Energy abilities - abilities long thought the realm of magic by humanity - and his army of self-aware nanobots to save the life of a young woman named Elizabeth.

Elizabeth is treated as if she is a slave, forced to endure all manner of human testing to find the method to unlock all human potential. It is treatment encouraged by a man named Arthur - her father - and it is her fondest wish that her father treat her as his beloved child rather than a piece of property. She refuses to leave until she's reformed him, for she believes that if he cannot change, she herself is predestined to be a monster, and a person not worthy of living.

She'll fight to change Arthur, with Will's help, until she succeeds.

Or until she's buried next to her mother, who sought the same reform - and was murdered for trying.

L'autore

Alex Albrinck is a lifelong Ohio resident, where he lives with his wife and three children. When he's not trying to be in three places at once with his active youngsters, he's following local professional and collegiate sports teams, or possibly unscrambling a Rubik's Cube. In lieu of sleep, he writes fiction. You can learn when his next work is available at http://eepurl.com/o03Gv. His debut novel, A QUESTION OF WILL, explores themes of technological advancement, human potential (good and bad), and the love bonding a family together. It reached the Amazon Top 100 in Science Fiction -> High Tech less than a week after publication. The sequel, PRESERVING HOPE, follows Will Stark as he continues his epic quest to save and reunite his family against all odds, and continues exploration of advanced technology and Energy skills. He is currently working on the next novel in the series, tentatively scheduled for release in March 2013.

The author has obviously taken the time to have this book edited, which I appreciate. The first book in the series, A Question of Will, can be a little hard to wrap your mind around, but keep after it, it sets up this book well. You get a good sense of the morals our main character has, as he is a well written character. While I would not say the writing is on par with Robert Jordan or David Eddings, I will say Mr. Albrinck is well on his way. As for whether I will be buying the next book, the answer is a definitive yes. Seriously, give these books an open minded shot.

Di Hope from California - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

After reading and enjoying Book I in the series quite a while back, I immediately read the sample of Book II. It seemed so different than Book I, I didn't want to read it at all. Earlier this week, I was drawn to read Book II, and am I ever glad I did! This book is excellent. The plot involves Will, a billionaire, going back into the far-distant past to save his current wife from being murdered so that she can be born in present times. (I know this sounds like a mind-twister, but hold on.)

When Will returns to the past, he finds the community where his current wife is living as a teenage girl. Of course, Will is far more advanced than this tight-knit and secretive group of people, whose common goal is to gain what would be considered super powers in their time, such as telepathy, self healing, mental superiority, etc.

The book takes the reader through the process of this group as the various members use this teenage girl as their guinea pig to perform experiments on, subjecting her to all sorts of toxic substances. By using her as their surrogate, they don't have to do any of the work or experience any of the horror of the experiments to gain their "powers."

Not only are they abusing the girl, they are doing so at the behest of her father, to whom they pay money for the privilege of making this young woman's life a hell on earth. The father, the group leader, dupes the group over and over, and the author inserts Will into this paradigm as the catalyst for change--or not.

For me, the book is a moral treatise and a look at our humanness as to how we can be manipulated due to self absorption and greed. The book is a fascinating study of the human character and group dynamics. Don't get the impression, however, that this is some dry, boring moralistic tome. The story is gripping as it shifts back and forth between good and evil.

When I was 60% done with the book, I had to go to work, and all I could think about at work was what the community was going to do next. I don't know if the nanos that Will possessed are believable in all that he used them for, but the story line itself is so compelling that the nanos are forgivable. Recommend.

I just finished reading Preserving Hope, and am in the middle of reading the 3rd book in the series, Ascent of the Aliomenti. If I remember correctly, I got the 1st book in the series through BookBub for free (or $.99, at the most), and as soon as I finished the 1st book, I looked for the 2nd. It's unusual that I get to the end of a series of books without becoming bored; but after reading Preserving Hope, I bought ALL of the rest of the books in the series that have been written so far.

I read a lot, and most of it is in the sci-fi genre. I enjoy series books, but normally read other books in between, and then go back and read another in the series. In the best of them, it is like returning to an old friend. With the Aliomenti Saga, I've read them straight through, one after another. It's a GREAT story with characters that I love and others who I dislike, but I feel that I really know them all and want to keep reading what happens next. Mostly, the good stuff has been said in other 5-star reviews ... just adding mine.
2.0 su 5 stelle fair beginning and end, but lackluster in the middle 27 febbraio 2015

I read the first in the series, and truly enjoyed most of it. The premise of the story is what I found entertaining and at times enlightening--that if we (as a species) were given the means to improve our mind and mental abilities--would humanity, human beings, become better for it? If we could expand our capabilities and learn how to communicate telepathically ... if we could teleport ... do things that would basically make us supermen ... would we become better?
Depends on what you mean by better, doesn't it?
While I enjoy reading books that make me think ... or that cause me to wonder about how the world might benefit from a variety of special talents, stories like this remind me that while much of the worlds population is content to live without imposing their own desires and beliefs upon others, there are those who would take advantage of weak minded or seal willed persons to enhance their own position and wealth. Man is greedy. Man is selfish. Man can explain away any evil he commits by claiming it is for the greater good!
While the story showed this quite well in many ways, the author got so involved in building his world that he spent pages upon pages explaining in painstaking detail the workings of the village-- which for me became boring to the point of nearly putting the story away and saying 'the heck with this' ... I don't need such intricate details
I don't need specific, minute and detailed descriptions on how to build a friggin water wheel! It does nothing for the story line. That it was done--fine--but it took nearly as long to write about it as it did to build it. And it really didn't impact the story (yeah, yeah, Arthur was stuffed in there, but the author went on and on and on about so many little things--explaining (telling) the reader about what was going on instead of letting the characters interact and allow the story to flow.
Massive info dumps with bits of fairly decent storytelling injected in small portions, just enough to give the reader hope that eventually the story would once more begin to reveal itself.
I still have a problem with time travel stories (guess I always will) because they give me a headache trying to unravel the vast webbing of paradox plagued innuendo. For example: how can you meet and marry someone in the future that died before you met them? Like over a thousand years before you met them? And their only hope to be saved was for your children to send you back in time to save their mother? Can't happen! The very premise of the story is flawed. Sure, at times it really seems like they could be linked ... that time is a river that flows in an eternal loop and all events are connected. But that's not how it works. Fun to think about, but like I said ... It will give you one killer headache.
If not for the frequent, intense, and abundant amount of useless information that was obviously and painstakingly clogging the story, I would have given it a three.
If you read the first one in the series, you might find this one worthwhile, but you'll find that the beginning and end are the only parts with true entertaining and thought provoking portions.
I do like the characters for the most part, and the author has some strong insight into people and what drives them, he just needs to learn that he doesn't need to describe every detail of the imaginary world he is building ... Give the reader some credit for basic intelligence and don't get too wrapped up in your own story.
I can suspend my belief in reality and enjoy the world you created ... dear writer ... Just relax and let the characters show us.

I read the first book which left me with questions, but the sequel was just too slow and kept repeating the same information as if I'd started the book anew with each chapter.
