About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Thank you for finding an interesting free book for us. I enjoyed it although, it’s a young adult or teen story and I usual do not read YA. I felt sorry for Arr being the last of his kind and losing his brother after having lost everyone else in his world to an alien invasion. I understood the picture being painted of Jake and Arr but I think it went a little overboard in Arr’s attachment to Jake. A highly intelligent being isn’t going to let an attachment grow so strong they would rather die than be with that person, yes if another life forms exist I do believe they are capable of great love but they also has a self-awareness that will not allow them to go to this length of dependence on anyone. Being the last of his kind, Arr would have been thinking more along the lines of finding a mate and preserving his genes not dying because Jake left him. They were a race of humanoid with Felis catus (cat) characteristics.

    Had Jake been an abusive person he would’ve used Arr until his heart was contended but having suffered himself he knew the meaning of someone having suffered.

    I was a little curious as Jake’s father friend Jim talked about Jake’s father and brother but there’s no mention of a mother, sister or any female relatives. No family background is given. Giving you a fuller understanding as to who Jake Hancourt is? Unless they were growing babies in pods by this era but pod babies knows mother nor father. So there had to be a mother somewhere in the picture and never does this Henu mentioned his mother. She supposed been killed by the invaders. If he can remember what a Helavite looks like then he can remember what his mother looked like. But this is the typical chauvinist attitude so common in Sci-fi writing.

    But I can see many elements borrowed from “Avatar” concerning the alien named Arr’s characteristics, abilities, and features and even the description of his home world. About they being tree dwellers.

    The space elements were delightful to read but I have read the description before in many other novels about space travelers. This genre has a preset environmental prototype that sort of kills the fun of reading it. It’s like Star Trek, Star Wars and etc already set the precedence in what the aircrafts could look like, how the people could dress, how they could behave so anyone who dare write sci-fi differently is stunned. Although, I am not a writer but I am someone who reads a lot. I say newcomers are going to have dream up something new to catch the tech weary crowds’ attention.

    The author is a great writer and has a wonderful way with words which is quite rare today but she just need to dream up her own scenarios never written about before. Even if the story is written before; use her own imagination to create a grander station than what’s already written. The holographic imagers reminded me of Star Trek the Next Generation where they had such a program able to generator realistic holograms and scenes from earth and other worlds.

    You can tell where her own creativity surfaced and it’s beautiful and it was headed into a fabulous description but then she stopped and took it along the line of the tradition work of this genre. It’s sad readers are so stuck on a formation of Sci-fi created over a hundred years ago by white males they will not look at anything else. I saw where this author snuffed out her true creativity in this book to appease the dumb masses. Yes, I can say dumb because I am reader and I can tell when an author is toning their intellect down.

    I believe it would have been better had the author stuck to her own creations and not tried to emulate what’s already out there.

  3. I think a great job was done describing the appearance of the Henu people.
