    Karen Everett is a young woman who isn’t sure where she’s going in life but she has a notebook full of poetry and dreams Those dreams were forever altered when she started listening in on a band practicing along her regular walking route When she leaves her notebook behind and it’s discovered by one of those band members their dreams are forever altered too With a woman on drums another on keyboard and the dynamic beauty and voice of Lana Kent on lead guitar and vocals the trio had a sound worth listening to But it wasn’t until cello and violin playing Karen with her poetic phrases and mournful strings joined the group that they finally had something to sayWhen they get their big break on local television the world itself seems to stop and listen Sometimes it’s just a matter of having the right sound at the right time but the newly dubbed band Radiation Canary surged in popularity Fame itself is hard enough to handle for someone who is experienced but for a somewhat naïve Karen Everett it proves to be a real challenge The band does than travel the country and win the hearts of a nation They also walk a path of self discovery tragedy and triumph But every one of them knows that it’s only a matter of time before the attention of fickle fans begins to move elsewhere Radiation Canary is a band that has certainly soared into the heavens but at the end of the day that little bird must come home This book is about their journey and eventual returnThe CharactersWhile the story is about the entire band it seems to weight heaviest on the persona of Karen Everett There are points when the tale is told from her point of view specifically while the rest is in third person But the transition is so seamless and natural that I felt no confusion whatsoever It just feltright The other three band members also share the spotlight Lana Kent is a driving force throughout with her charisma and looks Her relationship with Karen is complicated but through it all they share a core of love and family Cody Renton is the drummer and Lana’s best friend since high school and has a spirit that is perhaps a little freer than the others Lastly there is Vanessa Grace on keyboard It was her practice space originally but Lana convinced her to share The three originals were good they had talent but it wasn’t until Karen came along that they were really a bandGeonn Cannon has this ability to write real engaging and sometimes flawed characters that endear you to them By the end of the book I felt like I was part of the band like Karen Lana Cody and Vanessa were all people I had known for years While each one had individual trait that may not have been great overall they were wonderful characters and those traits made them seem even realistic in my headThe Writing StyleThe book is organized like tracks on an album and it follows the timeline of each album released by the band It is sort of like a retelling of their history For the most part the book is written in third person flitting focus from one person to the next depending on what the scene called for Every once in a while it would switch to the first person viewpoint of Karen Normally switching view like that would be book doom but the author did it so well and so flawless that it left nary a ripple in my subconscious It was right for what I was reading at the timeTo date I’ve never read descriptions of music and live performance that are as emotive and spot on as the ones written by Geonn Cannon With his words I watched each show I played in each showI was both fan and performer When the audience cried so too did I And when the band cried I felt it in my heart Before reading The Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary I would have said it was impossible for a book to invoke that exact feeling within my chest I get when listening to music that raises the hairs on my arms and causes my heart to race The ProsI loved the language used by Geonn Cannon He put heart and soul into each and every character in this book but his lyrical style and descriptive prose put a depth of emotion into each performance that few other can accomplishThe ConsThere were aspects of the character’s personalities that could be annoying but for the most part you could take them as just part of the whole human package One thing I noticed about Geonn Cannon’s writing is that he doesn’t always take you where you expect or even want to go but you eventually get to the place that is write for the story One thing I found muddled was in my physical mental image of the band members While I had an excellent image of their personalities I found it harder to imagine what they looked like in my head The ConclusionI rated this book and its seuel a five out of five That is not a score that I take lightly One I can’t finish two means I’ve read it but I didn’t like it at all Three probably encompasses the most as being good to average Four is excellent and I’d read the book again But fivefive means the book touched my heart and stayed with me long after I put it down Five means I’ll read that book again and again throughout the years and I will actively seek out other books by that author If you love fictional books about bands or music this read is for you If you love books about engaging characters seeing their way through adversity to triumph in the end this book is for you If you love romance and discovery of new love this book is for you But you know what? Don’t take my word for it just read it And when you’re done you’ll thank me as you buy its seuel

    Karen Everett is a poet and a musician She plays the cello and has a crush on her fellow band mate and lead singer Lana KentKaren longs for her poetry be heard by a larger audience I mean what kind of person doesn’t want their beautiful words to be heard by everyone?Eventually Karen and the Band “Radiation Canary” land themselves a spot on National Television This is a good thing because it causes the band to have a jump on their popularitySoon after they end up touring the country and recording the music videos and albums this is like a dream come true for their band But with all of this comes a lot of time and responsibilities With all of this going on Karen and Lana find less and less time to work on their relationship Also we all know that fame doesn’t last forever With that comes the responsibilities of keeping the band on top of the world and keeping the fans entertained There is a lot of work involved in that So carefully working on their albums their tracks and performances together they work strongly on everything together What is so uniue is that Karen is somewhat of an innocent kind of lesbian She likes to be the uiet little cell playing poet most don’t see and recognize but adore Since the up and coming fame of the “Radiation Canaries” Karen has learned to come out of her shell a little slowlyThis book “The Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary” was a different kind of read for me Kind of like a star struck you’re a groupie kind of person following the band as you read it That is what I felt like It was somewhat a little educational because like I’ve said I’ve not read anything like this before And I’ve never been a groupie so this was my first encounter I have however been a fan of many writers And Geonn is one of them he is uite an excellent writer an always keeps me entertained And with this book I was just that This book kept me wanting I truly was wanting to know what would happen and if Karen and Lana would find time for their romance and make it work I was rooting for them all throughout as well as for the band And I honestly felt like a groupie I however felt like their could’ve been a little bit depth put into Karen like a piece was missing from her within this book Perhaps maybe that’s because there is to come in another book? I don’t knowBut whatever it is this book is a five star book worth reading especially if you are into bands and lesbian lovers This book is truly a fascinating read for any groupie

    I picked this book because I'm a fangirl I love Geonn Cannon's writing I'm so glad I did By the end of the book I didn't want to let go of these wonderful women I'd come to know through the pagesThe first and best thing about the story is of course the characters They are marvelous I'm used to reading about worlds populated by men in which women are peripheral or accessories especially when the story is about the entertainment industry This is a complete reversal most of the men are relatively unimportant side characters Instead we're treated to the rich lives of strong competent talented women I left the story feeling like I'd made new friendsThere were plenty of terrific little surprises sprinkled throughout including a few random 1980s1990s pop culture references subtle enough to not distract but noticeable to anyone who recognized them It made for a lot of fun as I spotted themThere were a fair number of sex scenes some detailed and some fade to black I thought it was a perfect balance especially since it's not technically a romance It was fantastic reading about women relating to one another in very real ways And of course there were plenty of nicely steamy moments to keep me happyThere were only a few minor things to mention and it's those that bring my rating down by half a star First it was a little hard to get into after the first few chapters The pacing was just a bit slow not at the beginning but from about a uarter of the way in until about halfway Second it never seemed like there was much real conflict or tension Some yes but it resolved fairly easily I especially kept waiting for the women's pasts to catch up with them for someone to broadcast their misdeeds everywhere and for them to have to clean those messes upOutside of that the writing is brilliant the characters fantastic and the story absorbing There's no doubt at all that I'll be reading just about anything Cannon writes in the futureI give it 45 starsAmy

    LOVED Gripping and powerful The name says it all The story is an epic journey from start to finish of the band members of Radiation Canary that spanned a ten year period and was double the size of regular books Karen really spoke to me on a personal level because of her insecurities and how down to earth she was even with success and how she believed she didn’t make the band become Radiation Canary Throughout the story I was hoping Karen and Lana would get and stay together even when they were with other people but I understand why they weren’t in the end There was so many layers to this book It included the story of a band and their journey from start to finish as well as the characters’ life and romances On top of that the author included actual songs and lyrics from each album the band released that also spoke to the emotions of the characters at the time in the story It made the overall journey powerful and moving it added fuel to the story’s impact and emotional connection for the reader Brilliant Novel My only disappointment is the fact I'll never see the band play “Say a Prayer If You’ve Got One” livehttpwwwRise Fall RadiaThe Rise and Fall of Radiation Canary

    45 StarsI first heard about this book from a blog by CJ Werlinger one of my favorite authors and I'm really glad I gave it a chance The story is set in Seattle and follows the rise of the band Radiation Canary from its inception to ultimate success The story really focuses on the friendship and love that develops between the four women who make up the band The writing is very good though I do have one minor complaint The author switches between first and third person and at times it is difficult to tell from which character's perspective the story is being told That said there are enough wonderful things about this book to not be deterred I really love the level of detail written about the main characters where they are given enough depth that you really feel like you know them by the end of the novel The story moves at a good pace and while there are ups and downs there is not a lot of unnecessary drama or angst I found this story to be uplifting and appreciate the strong message regarding the importance of friendship love and family I definitely recommend this book

    Geonn Cannon shows that a man can write lesbian fiction The book follows the story of all female four piece Rock band 'Radiation Canary' from humble beginnings to global fame but it also follows the personal story of the band's two lesbian band as they fall into then out of love whilst continuing to have to work together I won't spoil the ending but it's a lovely read If I have a criticism than as someone who has been in rock bands the four might get past their rows a bit too uickly
