    Have you ever read a book that you both loved and hated all at the same time? That is very much this book for me.At first, the author completely had me captivated by the story of General Robert Andreas and Dr. Karl Jaeger, a military man who works for the government and a man who is described as "perhaps one of the Nazi's biggest monstrosities of the war." Very science fiction. Very Area 51. I'm hooked.Then, out of nowhere, the story changes to the story of Maya Smock and how her life intermingles with Jay McCallister, her favorite author, as she goes from a normal, everyday girl who works at a bookstore and dreams of one day being an author, to getting published and becoming one of those best-sellers she always envied.Seems like an interesting story, right? It is. It really is.And yet I couldn't help having so much frustration with it.First, the book description gave away too much of what happens in the story, causing me to not feel that surprise and mystery that I usually get from a thriller. The fact that her and McCallister have this connection - and what the connection is - is huge, and I would have rather found that out during the story instead of just waiting for that to come. It took away a lot of my enjoyment.Second, the lack of editing was very off-putting. I'm not just talking about missing words in sentences (which is quite tedious when you're reading), but the fact that the author repeats information about these characters over and over again i.e. Maya's stay in different orphanages and homes until the age of seventeen, her promiscuity, Eric giving her a job. Third, my favorite character (Maya) was one that had a lot of depth to her, but she made some bad decisions, ignored all those gut feelings, and continued to abuse herself just as bad as the adults in her younger days did. Hindsight is 20-20, I guess, because as she's telling the story, you realize that she probably would have done things differently, but with the strength that she had to do what she initially did, I found myself getting angry with her quite a bit because of her stupidity. I honestly felt like I was reading a story where the main character was a teenager, and not someone who had gone through all of this stuff and was now a grownup.Fourth, the side story of Claude the Jerk, his girlfriend, the money... blah blah blah... really took away from the two stories I mentioned above. I wanted to know how they went together and how we were going to get to the whole Maya-McCallister connection, and found myself skimming through paragraphs in each chapter because I found them unnecessary. I felt more like I was reading a YA Romance than a Science Fiction Thriller.Fifth, the way that Andreas and Jaeger interacted just seemed... childish. Maybe that's not the word I'm looking for, but I can't honestly think of a better way to put it. This is a General in the United States Military and a Doctor, yet their conversations seemed very immature. I just feel like something as secret as what they were dealing with would have been handled differently. Dina Rae is a good writer, and I really enjoyed the amount of work she put into her character development, but this book failed to live up to its potential. As the two parts began to come together, the story got better and I could really see the talent that this writer has. Unfortunately, the editor she had (if she had one) failed to point out some things that disrupted the flow and took away from the main point of the story. She has written other novels that I may take a gander at, and I hope that she continues writing in the future, as I would like to see where her talent takes her.Note: I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

    Maya has nothing in her life, except her love of reading. When she dabbles in writing her own novel, which instantly becomes a best seller, things start to get more than a little crazy.I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.This story follows two timelines - that of Maya, a successful, newly-published author; and a secret government base, set up after the Roswell crash.Both are highly-creative.American General Andreas and ex-Nazi Dr. Jaeger are at the front of an exciting new area of research, as they find alien beings and their craft, after the Roswell crash. They are at the forefront of genetic research, and creating fuel for conspiracy stories to come.Maya doesn't think much of herself, an orphan who ran away from the social system as early as possible. She is proud that she is managing to stand on her own two feet, with a job and a roof over her head, and she doesn't dare to dream bigger. Except when she starts to write, and the words flow out of her, as though they don't belong to her.Which, y'know, is all described in the synopsis of the book. There aren't any surprises beyond that, as this book feels like it's just building the foundation for the second book.The writing style isn't one that I particularly enjoy. I found it very dry, and full of facts. Yes, it's sci-fi, and yes, that comes along with the necessary details; but I didn't feel anything for the characters involved. Some sections felt like compressed footnotes."I should have stayed. The last four years I waited for Eric to say he loved me and when he did I left with the good looking snake oil salesman.Two weeks later, I was married on the strip in a very tacky chapel with no friends or family..."Overall, it's an imaginative story, and worth forming your own opinion over.

    I Am Blown Away by this Book, wow what a story. I am having a hard time trying to decide what to say about a who knows, maybe conspiracies need another like its story. I really got into this plot.

    This book is written in two streams. One involves a US General so taken by alien life that when he finds a Nazi concentration camp doctor doing experiments on trying to incorporate some allegedly alien DNA into fertilized eggs from camp victims, he loses his ethics and gets the doctor to the US. Then the General is put in charge of getting what he can from the Roswell incident. No, dear reader, in this book at least, Roswell was NOT a weather balloon. As the story progresses, the General's soul becomes increasingly hell-bound. The second strand is closer to the present and involves Maya Smock, a young woman who suddenly discovers she can write science fiction at a rate that is simply staggering. Trouble is, she can't get an agent. (Been there, done that!) However, she improvises and lands one seedy one with a technique not available to the likes of me. The book becomes a best seller, and Maya has trouble getting the agent out of her hair. The second strand is written first person, so you know what Maya is thinking.The book is well-written, although there is the odd editorial glitch. There were two German doctors that were brought either from Argentina or Germany – take your pick! There are also some slightly unusual uses of prepositions. However, the structure of the book is masterful. The two strands are intertwined and develop at a rate where the relation between them becomes apparent at just about the right rate, and that is very difficult to do. Equally, empathy for Maya and anti-empathy for the General is somewhat nicely balanced, and that too is very difficult to do. For grading, I had a problem because the book does not end properly, and the very ending is more the start of the next book, while there was a very good opportunity for a proper ending that seems to be left for the next one. I really disapprove of this, but I was so taken with the good bits I shall swallow this particular dead rat.

    The Best Seller is a solid foundation to an as yet unnamed new science fiction series by Dina Rae. With the flood of paranormal romance in the last decade, it’s been a long time since I’ve read a book about plain, old fashioned aliens. We’re talking little green men with big eyes, flying saucers, and government conspiracy. It’s retro in a good way. There’s even a nod to the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens. (Come on, you know you watch it and rant about the amount of product Giorgio Tsoukalos puts in his hair. I bet you even know how to correctly pronounce “Tsoukalos.”) It’s the guilty pleasure that makes you feel less stupid than watching the Kardashians.The story begins in 1947 with the infamous Roswell incident and as that blossoms into a fully funded military operation, it flips back and forth with the present day. In the modern portion of the story, Maya Smock writes a best seller, but unknown to her, a code is embedded in the text with ties back to the Roswell aliens. I love that Rae has included the concept of a deliberate construction within Maya’s book. It was the construction I loved most about Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn and The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. As Maya skyrockets into literary stardom with the likes of Arthur C. Clark, Issac Asimov, and Ray Bradbury, she comes under the wing of another best-selling author, Jay McCallister who claims to have the same code embedded in his books.The only character I didn’t like was Claude. It’s easy to say that’s because he’s the “bad guy,” but that’s all he is. He comes across as one-dimensional, a little too obvious and a little too easy to hate. Jay McCallister was my favorite character and we barely got to know him. I’m hoping as Maya moves into new and unexpected territory that we’ll get to know him in new ways through her and her new friends.1947 is post World War ll and some of Germany’s genetic scientists have ended up not as war criminals, but working for the military out in Roswell Nevada. If anyone remembers the swastika which flashed briefly as part of Professor Langdon‘s lecture on symbols at the beginning of the Da Vinci Code movie, you’ll remember it was one that the Nazi party appropriated, but existed long before that association.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THWrn...The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means “good fortune” or “well-being.” The motif (a hooked cross) appears to have first been used in Neolithic Eurasia, perhaps representing the movement of the sun through the sky. Is it so unusual then that aliens who come from the sky might have introduced this motif to the earth’s early population or that Hitler, in appropriating it, had broader goals for his genetic experimentation? So many interesting questions, even if they are fictional, to explore.The writing in Dina Rae’s The Best Seller is not campy in the way The X-Files could be at times. It acknowledges where we are today in our culture with regard to UFO’s, but I felt like I was twelve again and reading Bradbury’s S is for Space. As a modern reader, I wanted a little more of the science. Then again, I liked Andy Weir’s The Martian. Readers who don’t enjoy the technical stuff won’t be put off by what is there. I’m looking forward to the next installment.My Rating: A- Enjoyed A LotRead this and other reviews at That's What I'm Talking About: http://twimom227.com/2016/07/review-t...

    Brilliant and Creative Writing!A Sci-fi Conspiracy theory that leaps and expands into new boundaries.What a Perfect book for those who love an excellent thought provoking, conspiracy twisting, and mind boggling turns of drama that will have you questioning every legend, tale, or heritage you think you knew. How pure of a human are you – Angel, Demon, or Alien? Ever thought why some individuals are smarter and more successful than others – how it came naturally for them and harder for others? Where did our race really originate from – God, Angels, Aliens, or how about a man made tube where genetic modification was used by mad scientist – example: Hitler / cloning for perfection / Alien abduction? Actually, how did our ancestors really get on earth – really from dust to dust or was it time travel? These are just a few of the scenarios weaved into this awesome story along with romance, hatred, jealousy, murder, madness, psycho plots, and the unthinkable possibilities that make this one hell of a drama and a thrilling suspense you won’t be able to put down. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Dina Rae has a way of creating characters that draw you into their world and have you memorized with every word or action they make. The plot seems to start out small but as you read towards the end and think you may have it figured out – wrong! No, you find there is a much bigger plot to be told and revealed. Maya Smock character is a sweet and smart young lady and I loved how even though writing came second nature to her she was still down to earth and knew how to get what she wanted – especially the way she got Claude to listen to her manuscript – LOL Claude on the other hand, I didn’t like him very much in the end especially how he uses his wife, brother, and ladies of the night. What a real psycho! Then there is Erick O’Reilly – what a sweetheart and I’m still hoping for a Happy Ever After for him and Maya.Jay McCallister was more than what I expected and I only wanted to know more about him. His true identity and relationship with Maya was mind boggling. Was disappointed at the end, however, I’m hoping we get a great surprise involving him in the 2nd installment of this series. Another part of this story is about the Nazi scientist along with our government’s secret agenda of creating the perfect and powerful human race and their involvement with an Alien species, how a new species was born, and how they are among our society today just totally kept me intrigued. Though the story doesn’t get to the point of how this ties in with Jay McCallister and Maya, I’m looking forward to the revealing truth of the two plots becoming intertwined to one big one.Overall, this was a fantastic story. There were many exciting and thrilling episodes all throughout the book. Truthfully I was shocked that the story didn’t come to an explosive end, no it is left open for a bigger plot and for the characters Maya and the mad scientist to finish telling their stories. Yes it is leaving me hanging and now I’m jonesing for the next installment. Excellent Read!

    The Best Seller by Dina Rae brings out one of the most unbelievable conspiracies of all. Yet, inside the tale, it seems so real. I was hesitant at first when reading this book. Then, I really got into the plot. The story chapters switch between the happening now moment to what happened back when the Nazis were a real threat. Here, readers will find the US government hiding as well as allowing Hitler's craziest doctors to conduct experiments. Experiments that involve four aliens. Aliens that can easily kill everyone in the room. In the modern moment, a young female who wrote a science fiction fantasy book goes to a book signing. She wants to see if anyone would represent her book and get it published. Fate must be funny. Because she not only found a crazy agent who got her book published but also met her favorite author. Only he acted crazy when he saw her necklace. A necklace that her mother gave her...then there's his talk, about the aliens are here. Dina Rae knows how to pull her readers, into a world full of weird stuff that leaves them intrigued. I couldn't stop reading this novel until I read the last page. Imaginative, well-written, and one that conspiracy hunger readers will love. Overall, I recommend this read to all.

    Maya Smock's life changes for ever when her debut novel becomes a success. Maya feels as if the novel somehow wrote itself something she can't explain. But with her rise comes marriage to Claude her publicist, big houses and new cars. Jay McCallister takes an interest in Maya and the two soon become friends. But Jay reveals something to Maya that will change her life even more.This book has elements of sci-fi, paranormal and historical fiction and it had me gripped from the very start. Along with Maya's story the backdrop is set by flashbacks to just after the Roswell Incident.Dina has wove together three genres to spectacular effect. Maya is someone who you can empathise with not knowing her parents, being supported by Eric and then finding herself not only a successful author, but having to face the possibility of just where she came from.I also think that Dina asks a bigger question in that what if there were aliens who had been here for a long time and the whole thing has been a massive cover-up. I also love the way she deals with the subject of the Nazi's trying to create a master race, and the fact that their work could have been brought about through knowledge of aliens.The cliff hanger ending left me wanting more and I am so grateful I can read The Sequel straight after.If you want a novel that will grab you from the very beginning and leave you wanting more at the end then I highly recommend this book as it will do just that.

    I won a copy of Dina Rae's "The Best Seller: A novel about codes, chromosomes, and conspiracy" in a Goodreads giveaway. The story is an exciting sci-fi thriller with a historical fiction-esque feel on half of it. The book alternates between the present day life of main character Maya Smock and the post WWII past of General Andreas and the origins of his experiment. However, this doesn't affect one’s ability to follow the story. The best seller is full of intrigue, suspense, and action, some aliens and Nazis, a dose of murder, even a bit of time travel. It does end on a cliff hanger, so now I will need to buy the second book. I would recommend this to sci-fi, historical fiction, and thriller fans. I wouldn’t recommend starting it before bed though, unless you don’t need sleep because you will not want to stop until its finished.

    super si-fiI am not a fan of si fi, but this book is super. the author made a mistake. NASA was created in 1958. my dad worked for NACA which was the precursor and the time frame of the book was 8-10 years earlier. I can really relate to this book, having lived in and around the area. this book will really make you think about the changes in our lives today due to the story line. have an open mind while reading this one. I look foreward to the sequel and hope it carries on the excellant story-time line. mp

    Do you like the show Ancient Aliens? This book thread similar ground and does it very well. The story is split between two timelines (post WWII and present time) and they eventually link together nicely. The writing is very smooth and the protagonist are all interesting and well define. I really, really love the WWII part of the story, but found that the present time story was totally engaging as well and a breeze to read. Dina Rae his an awesome storyteller and this, somewhat, low key Alien/DNA/conspiracy story as everything that I could ask for.

    Maya Smock lived in the system all her life. She grew up in foster care. Her mother left her at an orphanage when she was a baby. She was put into some very rough homes throughout her life. She was abused in more than one way. When she told once everyone thought she was crazy and she vowed never to tell again.After the system threw her out on the street when she was eighteen years old with no job or anyone to help her she did manage to hit it lucky though. She met a guy that worked in a bookstore that gave her a job. She loved working in the bookstore as she loved reading. Maya could always be found with a book in her hands. When she was on break at work she was reading. Reading was her way of getting away and it was also a way for her to hide to become invisible. She didn’t like people noticing or seeing her she did not like being the center of attention like some people. She liked staying to herself that way no one could hurt her.Maya liked to write and she would let her boss and best friend read what she wrote. When she wrote her first book her boss loved it and told her she needed to get it published. There was a booking signing of sorts coming to town and he told her to go and take her book and hopefully she would find someone that wanted it.Maya decided to go to the signing and that is where she meets her agent who later also becomes her husband. After Maya finally “sells” her book to him they fall head over heels in love. He wraps Maya around his little finger in more ways than one. Maya is so naïve that she believes everything he says. Maya’s heart is so big that she believes everyone but trust no one.Maya also meets another great man at the signing an author who becomes a close friend in a short amount of time. He believes that they are a lot like. He says his books write themselves and he believes that Maya’s does the same. Maya is not sure about him at first but over time she becomes to believe him more than anyone. Jay shows Maya that they are a like in more ways than one. Jay introduces Maya to a world with aliens in it and tells her they were created in a lab. At first of course she doesn’t believe him but after he shows her all of his research for lack of a better word at the moment she starts to have her doubts about everything she has been taught.I have read lots of Dina’s books and loved them all but I think The Best Seller is the best one yet; maybe. I honestly believe that The Best Seller is a “best seller” and will enter the book world at warp speed. So grab your copy today so you don’t miss out this fantastic ride that I believe that The Best Seller is going to take us on. I am anxiously awaiting the next Best Seller. I hope it is soon. Dina?

    We start the story in 1947. General Robert Andreas is giving the task of covering up a crash landing of a UFO in Roswell. He transports the two ships and four bodies to Broom Lake were a former Nazi scientist, Doctor Jaeger has been relocated. He was a lesser known scientist that specialized in genetics during World War II. Now with the alien bodies he can continue these experiments.We also follow Maya Smock, a girl that started out in an orphanage and bounced around in foster homes when she went out on her own at seventeen. Thankfully when she was caught stealing from a book store the owner Erick O’Reilly hires her. Eventually she writes her first book and becomes an instant top author. But her marriage to her agent is doomed to fail and a meeting with her favorite author Jay McCallister makes her life take a twist. This is a great story. I was instantly caught up by the aliens and Doctor Jaeger. Then you have Maya that has had nothing but trying to make it on her own. Yet she gets the short end of the stick with Claude. But when she learns about her past from Jay I was beyond hooked and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.I admit that I really hoped everything was going to be resolved but it is left open for a sequel. I can’t wait to find out more about Maya and Jay. As for The Best Seller, I recommend you get you copy today. As for me while I wait for the next book, I will be checking out other books by Dina Rae.I received The Best Seller for free from Reading Addiction Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.

    I don't know what to say. I don't usually read SCI-FI and I didn't know this was going to be more SCI-FI than about WWII. From the cover I thought it was going to be about Hitler and WWII but was very surprised that was only the tip of the iceberg and that it was a SCI-FI and I loved it. My only complaint is the second of two books is not available, yet!

    This book is terrible. There are so many typos in this book that the author should sue her editor. At least get her money back. The story is two pronged, first the story of Maya, the protagonist and author of a sci-fi story about aliens during the nazi era. That part of the story holds promise but then devolves into her bad marriage and her will to get a divorce. Yawn. Not what I expected. Then the other part is the text of her book. It involves an Air Force General who is running Broom Lake, a top secret base in southern Nevada. A stupid story thattakes place in the post Roswell alien crash era. 1949-1950. Poorly researched since it continues to refer to NASA, an agency that didnt get commissioned until 1958. This whole story is innane. Don't waste your money.

    I found the plot in this novel riveting with its exposition of alien theories. The author shows the events viewed in first person by a young woman—humble, unassuming and poor because she was given away as a babe. Kaya’s experiences are interspersed with heartless scenes from a secret laboratory along with her husband’s calculated viewpoint, which built to a suspenseful climax and left me breathless to read The Sequel, Dina Rae’s next book.Along with good descriptions of sights, sounds and smells, the writing style flows in the manner of Maya’s when she types her best seller without a break to speak of. A few minor editing errors keep me from giving the five stars this excellent novel deserves.

    Another great installment in Dina Rae’s Sci-Fi series.I was particularly happy that everything was taken up another notch in this novel, Rae wasn’t messing around when she wrote this.At the beginning we are are given just enough information to get us caught up. Then you are back into the action and there is plenty of new drama unfolding.Overall a great addition to the Sci-Fi series world.

    Maya Smock, an aspiring author, grew up in an orphanage and foster homes. Used and abused, she entered adulthood early taking a job at a Las Vegas bookstore by day and writing her novel, “The Master Race,” at night. When Maya’s book was finished she met a literary agent at a Las Vegas convention. Claude Kazinsky, agent for Tatum, Boyle, and Shapiro loved it. After publication, Maya kept her promise to her bookstore boss, Eric O’Reilly, and held her first book-signing event at his establishment; which was a huge success. Not only did Maya meet Claude, who she soon married, but she also became friends with Jay McCallister, a science fiction writer with credentials of the likes of Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, or Arthur C. Clarke. He was huge and he took Maya under his wing. Thus begins Dina Rae’s science fiction thriller, The Best Seller. Rae tells her story in two perspectives. First, there’s the story that begins during the summer of 1947 at Broom Lake, Nevada. Written in the third person omniscient point of view, we see a top-secret military installation where four coffins are sent to the base’s underground laboratory to be studied by Nazi scientists rescued by Americans after World War II. Their goals and objectives could freeze blood to its core. Then Rae switches to Maya’s story letting her relate it in the first person narrative. We see Maya changing from a minimum waged employee living in humble surroundings in a bad neighborhood to owning a mansion in Vegas and a condo in Los Angeles. The Best Seller is plot driven with a thrilling story line that will keep readers turning pages until the final climax. My only concern was that a few sub-plots were not resolved leaving me waiting until Rae has the sequel published.
