Double Trouble (The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger #1 #2) review È 109 Õ ➶ [Reading] ➸ Double Trouble (The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger #1 #2) By Jerry Gill ➫ – Librarian's Note An alternate cover for this ISBN can be found hereIt all beLibrarian's Note An alternate cover for this ISBN can be found hereIt all beganyears ago when life was stupendously savage and every day was a test of both your will and your strength An epic love was born Two cave dwellers Nat ul daughter of Tha and Nu the son of Nu each a stupendously mighty hunter and warrior to match that time vowed to love one another as long as the moon would rise in the night sky which in their primitive fashion meant forever The very day following this sacred oath the warrior and warrior maiden both died in an earthuake and tsunami Buried by the earth swallowed up by the sea one would think their story was ended Yet since that time the wise of every generation and every culture have proclaimed that true love never dies There is a reason they say this In the early th century the moon still was rising in the night sky when Nat ul returned as Victoria Custer who vividly remembers that former primeval life That painful fright. Vic Double Troubleby Jerry Gill Goodreads AuthorThis work collects two books by the same author featuring the character of Victoria Custer The first is called Time Doesn’t Matter and the second is Mongol There are many very good things about these books and some other things that I didn’t think worked uite so well In my opinion Time Doesn’t Matter is uite a bit better than Mongol and would get four stars from me if it were rated separately The main character Victoria Custer is an adventurer and writer in the Twentieth century She is generally known as “Vic” and writes under the penname of Vic Challenger Vic is a contemporary of Tarzan of the Apes but she is also the reincarnation of Nat ul a cave woman who lived a dangerous life in the distant past Nat ul and her caveman mate Nu were killed on the same day by an earthuake The modern Vic mentally relives Nat ul’s experiences and realizes that Nu must have been reincarnated as well An overall theme of these works is her attempt to locate the modern “Nu”Book 1 Time Doesn’t Matter takes the reader back and forth between the ancient world and the modern and it is a page turning adventure very much in the mold of Edgar Rice Burroughs in his Tarzan and Pellucidar series Like ERB the author of the book has a great sense of “narrative drive” which keeps the story constantly moving The author also creates good characters who the reader comes uickly to like and root for Book 2 Mongol takes Vic on a trip to Mongolia accompanied by a few friends They run into monsters bandits buried cities treasure and strange beings galore I would give this one three stars Here are a couple of things that I thought could have made these books even stronger First neither book is divided into chapters There are sections with titles which I guess is about the same thing but I read this in ebook format and it was difficult to tell the sections apart since they did not necessarily start on new pages and the titles didn’t always stand out from the background Simply labelling these as chapter 1 title chapter 2 title etc would have really improved the reading experience at least in my opinionMy remaining criticism relates only to book 2 Mongol Although interesting I thought the book suffered a bit because there wasn’t a specific goal that the characters were working toward It consisted of a string of events that were only peripherally related to each other The events themselves were interesting but did not specifically advance a ‘plot’ for the book In addition while the author took care to get the historical details right and seems to have done a very good job of this I sometimes felt there was just too much historical detail that slowed down the adventure The historical details on things like clothing food etc could probably have been cut back a bit in the interests of keeping the story moving forward All in all this was a good duology with the first book being uite outstanding Definitely a writer to keep an eye on

Review for Time Doesn't MatterThis first novel in Gill's Double Trouble collection is an exciting thrill from the first page to the last The love between Nat ul and Nu provides an interesting and downright inspirational plot line and the well described scenery kept me genuinely engaged Gill's way with words had me feeling like I was right there in the midst of the story I'd definitely recommend this one to anyone who enjoys books about past lives with lots of adventureReview for MongolThis second novel in the Double Trouble collection is just as wonderful as the first As Vic becomes familiar with her past lives I became addicted to her search for Nu And once again Gill's descriptiveness and lush use of setting is masterful I definitely hope he writes soon because I love these charactersOverall Jerry Gill's Vic Double Trouble Collection are a couple of great novels that I won't be forgetting anytime soon

Double Trouble The Incredible Adventures of Vic Challenger #1 #2Ening memory from a thousand generations past has forged her into something than she was and has emboldened her with unrelenting purpose empowering her to take action in even the most savage of circumstances Now under the pen name Vic Challenger she works as a writer of adventure travel articles and her job allows her to literally comb the world as she searches for Nu The proclamation of a stone age woman should never be dismissed You might say it is chiseled in stone and Vic has made it plain she is determined to find her eternal love Nu no matter what it takes As Vic Challenger she will confront the grimmest peril and venture into situations so horrible they make the bravest of men cower and weep for their mother Vic has embarked against all odds on an epic uest that may last a lifetime and on any day could bring violent death She learned from her mysterious avatar Nat ul even when you face the gravest of threats you need not be brave you just. I just finished reading Mongol the second novel in Vic Double Trouble paperbackThe second book is at least as good as the first in the Vic Challenger series The heroine is a travel writer during the 1920s who gets into one death defying adventure after another throughout her travels and is able to defend herself using a variety of weapons including firearms knives martial arts and her own primitive weapons chipped from stone In this story her travel companion is Lin Li who she has known since high school The pair travel to Asia from Nebraska by way of Hawaii They solve a murder along the way once in Asia they must defend themselves against monstrous creatures beings from a different plane of existence and the army of a local war lordAs with the first book in the series it is a very good homage to the work of Edgar Rice Burroughs Yet is of a modern reboot of that work for contemporary readers by portraying strong self actuating women who can take care of themselves for young readersAn interesting and positive difference between the books in this series and the work of Edgar Rice Burroughs is the focus upon Vic Challenger's role as friend daughter sister and contributing member of society member of a social web as opposed to the heroes of Edgar Rice Burroughs who mostly acted alone or with a loyal familiar always remarkable but still inferior to the hero typically seeking to retrieve a kidnapped love interest or some personal goal for servival In the Vic Challenger stories as remarkable as she is her companions are shown to be her eual and to sometimes have skills she does not have She works with many alleys for social good rather than just her own benefit And she is shown to participate in church social and family functions when at home in Nebraska These are not activities enacted or valued by the heroes in Burroughs' books I have recommended the Vic Challenger books to my wife and to all of my children but have especially recommended them to each of my three daughters ranging in ages from 16 through 28
