Mark Young's latest detective crime novel features an aging cop Tom Kagan who is trying to stop a Mexican prison gang leader who has gone rogue in a fast paced thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end, forcing you to write an e-mail to Mr. Young begging for more. Part of the reason Broken Allegiance won the Book N Tech Editor's Choice Award was the fact that Mr. Young was a former cop who knew the streets, which enables him to write something that seems legit.
The novel starts off relatively slowly which is good because it introduces you to the story correctly. If your a big mystery novel reader then you'll see a few easter eggs, but then the novel takes you into the good part. The book really does have the Oculus Rift (Virtual Reality headset) type of experience I look for in a book. You'll be taken away with it.
5/5 Sorry for my typical glowing reviews but once again a book in a category that I love but don't read very much (due to IMO a lack of good books in the category) this was amazing. Kudos to you Mr. Young and thank you for protecting us when you did serve.

So, I am in advanced robotics at school but I haven't really had time to make a site for robotics. Our class has gotten start with the Arduino Uno board and kit that came along with it. There is the tutorials page where you can get started with Arduino Uno too. So if you like robotics, or technology/engineering in general, visit the site and also write a comment.
