Grim Crush 

As a grim reaper, seventeen-year-old Xia has to follow these Rules. But when she meets Shilah, a Native American boy who can see reapers, she figures the rules don’t apply. To find out why he can see her, she pretends to be human, since carrying a scythe probably isn’t the latest teen craze. Things become unnerving as she begins experiencing first-time affection with Shilah, but she’s irreversibly drawn to him. Suddenly Xia finds herself breaking Rule Two, even while collecting dead souls behind Shilah’s back. It isn’t long before she is caught red-handed by the Angel of Death himself, and then not only is her relationship at risk, but also Shilah’s soul. And this leaves Xia wondering: can love overcome Death?

GRIM CRUSH is a teen paranormal romance that shows how love can transcend the boundary between life and death.

Pepped Up 

Pepper’s never considered revealing her deeper feelings for her longtime friend, Jace Wilder.

That is, until running star Ryan Harding moves to town.

When it comes to running, Pepper’s goals are clear. But when it comes to Jace and Ryan, it’s nowhere near as simple.

Pepped Up is the first in a series that follows Pepper through high school and into college. The second and third books in the series are now available. The fourth book will be released July 30, 2015.

intro

Introductions: The Ghost Bird Series: #1 

With an agoraphobic mother and a barely-there father, Sang abhors the isolation keeping her in the shadows. The only thing Sang craves is a fresh start and to be accepted as ordinary by her peers, because for her being different meant being cast out alone.

When her family moves to a new school district, Sang infiltrates a group of boys nearly perfect in every way. Grateful for an influence outside of her parents’ negativity, she quickly bonds with the boys, hoping to blend in and learn from them what it means to have a natural relationship with friends.

Only the boys have secrets of their own and they’ll do anything to keep her safe from the knowledge of the mysterious Academy that they’ve sworn allegiance to. Bit by bit, Sang discovers that her friends are far from the normalcy she expected. Will her loyalty change when she’s forced to remain in the dark, or will she accept that she’s traded one house of secrets for another?

Meet Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North in a story about differences and loyalty, truth and mystery, friendships and heart-throbbing intimacy.

The Academy, ever vigilant.

PATRIOT THREAT: A Mac Walker Military Sniper Elite Short Story Collection

MILITARY THRILLER FANS LOVE MAC WALKER!

“Mac Walker ranks right up there with Scot Harvath, Jack Reacher, and Mitch Rapp except I find Walker more likable and believable and the series allows readers to walk with him from a younger man to the old yet still tough military veteran. Great action stories. –Semper Fidelis

This Patriot Threat collection provides readers three military thriller short stories that compliment the full action adventure Mac Walker series of novels.

  • -MAC WALKER’S BULLET
  • -MAC WALKER’S REGRET
  • -MAC WALKER’S HUNTED

˃˃˃ From MAC WALKER’S BULLET:

“Snake bit and bullet ripped, here we go.”

Shooting Mac Walker is one thing. Actually killing him is another…

Former Navy SEAL and government gun for hire Mac Walker is caught in the deadly Somali desert bleeding from a gunshot wound as his intended killer seeks him out to finish the job.

˃˃˃ From MAC WALKER’S REGRET

“Killing another human being isn’t so hard. It’s the forgetting. After a while, the faces of those you’ve killed tend to sneak up on you. Sometimes it’s in a dream. Other times you might be sitting in a crowded coffee shop and have a nagging sense of familiarity from the person taking your order. Each death is another haunting, another memory, another bit of subconscious weight added to one’s being.”

For Mac Walker, that weight was never so great as when he killed that child.

This story takes place in a war torn region of Sudan where Mac must come to terms with who he has become, and who he may one day be…

˃˃˃ From MAC WALKER’S HUNTED

TWO OLD WARRIORS FACE OFF, EACH AS WILD AS THE OTHER…

“That bear was just doing what any of us would – trying to survive. It was either him or me. We both understood that. He was long in the tooth, but still had plenty of bite. I hope to be half the fighter he was when my own time comes. No hard feelings between us. Just two warriors doing what comes natural, kill or be killed.” –MAC WALKER

This short story gives readers the first glimpse into Mac’s involvement in the Alaskan outpost from where the epic Molan Labe adventure titled, DOMINATUS takes place.

secrets

Secrets: The Hero Chronicles

Stay tuned for the release of “Elle and The Escape,” a spin-off from the popular “The Hero Chronicles” series by Tim Mettey in Fall 2016!

Visit Timmettey.com for details about upcoming events and new releases!

After reading a bit more, you may begin to wonder if the book was printed wrong- I definitely did, considering I had a galley copy. But it is not. The form of writing is constant, and Mettey’s style is constant throughout the telling of the lives of both Alex and Nicholas.
What may infuriate you is the fact that the bond between Alex and Nicholas isn’t mentioned for much of the book. This however is an amazing feat for the author to pull off, because when the clues as to how they interact begin to emerge, and the paranormal reason behind it is revealed, the impact of the story is heightened profusely.

Nicholas’ life is an exciting one, and witnessing his interactions, actions, and knowing his thoughts is an enjoyable experience.
This book took me through the wringer, and after reading it I immediately wanted more- which is shameful since Secrets will not be released until tomorrow- November 3.

After reading Secrets, I am highly anticipating the continuation of The Hero Chronicles, and more of Mettey’s dynamic writing. I would recommend this book to many.

5 shining stars from me!

There’s Ms. Lacusta, the science teacher who just might be teaching more than chemistry, and then there’s Nell Massler, the ultimate mean girl whose extracurricular activities include blood rituals. And she wants Tasmyn’s blood next.

Entangled in a web of first love, quirky and secretive townsfolk, magic and blood spells, she discovers the town’s secrets aren’t just bizarre, they’re deadly.

˃˃˃ Editorial Reviews

“This book was total awesomesauce! I loved the story…and while mind reading and witches have been done a lot in YA, this book is still sort of unique, to me at least, because i never read them together before.” — Bemused Bookworm “Sweetswan”

“In the sea of so-so free books, it’s always nice to come across a gem like Fearless. I loved the story, loved the main characters, loved the secondary characters, including all the parents. I’m looking forward to reading more books by this author and will go buy the next one now.” –Dr. Debra

“This book had a lot of things that I love all jammed into one: the fierce protectiveness and possessiveness of a werewolf book. . .the evil nemesis without the POV that I hate, and the YA romance that has butterflies in my stomach for them. So much love for this book — what a great surprise!” –Carrie Williams

Upper East Side

Welcome to New York City’s Upper East Side, where my friends and I live and go to school and play and sleep—sometimes with each other. We all live in huge apartments with our own bedrooms and bathrooms and phone lines. We have unlimited access to money and alcohol and whatever else we want, and our parents are rarely home, so we have tons of privacy. We’re smart, we’ve inherited classic good looks, we wear designer clothes, and we know how to party.

Melody’s Crush 

It’s her senior year and she has made it through the past three years of high school with little social psychological trauma. That’s excellent considering she goes to a school in Los Angeles where the majority of the bored students graduating will have executive paying jobs the moment they walk across stage. If all goes well, she will graduate as the Valedictorian with multiple offers from colleges on the East Coast, far away from California.

But when the health teacher announces a “special” project that requires students to be paired and live under the same roof for one week, Melody’s world gets completely turned upside down. She is forced to spend time with someone totally opposite of her and frankly, she can’t stand… or so she thought. One night of catching a glimpse of the softer side of Kyle Warner, the school’s most popular and arrogant quarterback, has her heart pounding and her stomach doing flip-flops.

But when Melody shows an ounce of affection toward Kyle, Jake discovers feelings of his own as he tries to protect his best friend from the guy he knows Kyle can be.

As the project comes to an end, Melody goes to homecoming… will it be a night to remember, forget or both?

Be advised, this contemporary Teen / Young Adult Romance story has some strong language and strong sexual connotation.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE leave a review.

I am a NEW author and want so much to get my reader’s feedback. I love writing and am hoping that my characters and story will capture your heart.

This is my first attempt at writing a novel for the public to read and so far, the reviews are keeping me going. Thank you so much for your time in reading as well as critiquing my work.

 cure

The Cure

Little is known about the disease, except that it’s a rapid and absolute killer. Countless lives have been claimed in the last hundred years, and government scientists are working hard to stop the spread through human experimentation. Testing has killed nearly as many people as the disease and, to Macey at least, it seems like they’re no closer to a cure.

At sixteen, conformity to the government’s idea of “sacrifice for the greater good” is a difficult concept for Macey. Shocked by how many aspects of life the disease controls, she faces her own testing reluctantly.

Macey feels alone as questions plague her about things that are simply a way of life for most. Questions no one else thinks to ask. Why is the quest for a cure reason enough to ban things like flags and freedom of expression? How can death be justified with more death? In the end, how much will the cure cost, and why is Macey the only one who thinks the price is too high?

Answers evade her until she’s left with only one question… How much will she sacrifice in the name of the cure?

Gone To Green

Starred review — Publishers Weekly:
“Christie engagingly guides both readers and the charming yet flummoxed Barker . . .This novel is unafraid to address the injustices of sexism, racism and corruption as well as the spiritual devastation that often accompanies the loss of loved ones.”

Will a big-city journalist find love and happiness in small-town Louisiana? An ambitious newspaper editor trades her corporate life at a large paper for the ownership of “The Green News-Item” in rural Louisiana — and finds friendship with an unlikely group of people. Ready to fight for right, she is unexpectedly drawn into new causes — and attracted to an appealing high-school coach who raises catfish part time.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Lois Barker, a successful big-city journalist, never imagined ending up in the tiny town of Green, La. She never guessed that within months she would unexpectedly inherit a smalltown newspaper. She never believed she would leave her rising-star career impulsively after a quiet, inner prompting urged, Go… I’ll help you. Yet that improbable route to upheaval is precisely where Christie (Goodbye, Murphy’s Law) engagingly guides both readers and the charming yet flummoxed Barker. As the editor and owner of the Green News-Item, the ever uncertain Barker transforms from an overwhelmed and overly self-reliant Jane Doe into a considerable power for reform and revitalization in her depressed Louisiana borough. Refreshingly realistic religious fiction, this novel is unafraid to address the injustices of sexism, racism and corruption as well as the spiritual devastation that often accompanies the loss of loved ones. Yet these darker narrative tones beautifully highlight the novel’s message of friendship, community and God’s reassuring and transformative love. (Aug.)

Spirit Legacy 

by E.E. Holmes (Author)

“The Gateway is open…”
These cryptic words wake college student Jess Ballard from a terrifying dream into an even more terrifying reality.

Jess’ life has never been what anyone would call easy; doing damage control in the wake of your nomadic, alcoholic mother doesn’t exactly make for a storybook childhood. But now her world has fallen apart just when it should be coming together: her mother gone—dead under mysterious circumstances; her life uprooted to stay with estranged relatives she’s never met; and there’s something odd about some of the people she’s been meeting at school:

They’re dead.

Aided by Tia, her neurotic roommate, and Dr. David Pierce, a ghost-hunting professor, Jess must unravel the mystery behind her hauntings. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger shadows her every move. An ancient secret, long-buried, is about to claw its way to the surface, and nothing can prepare Jess for one terrifying truth…her encounters with the world of the dead are only just beginning.

Spirit Legacy is the first of three thrilling novels in “The Gateway Trilogy” by E.E. Holmes.

The Princess Diaries

What? A princess??

Me??? Yeah, right.

Mia Thermopolis is pretty sure there’s nothing worse than being a five-foot-nine, flat-chested freshman, who also happens to be flunking Algebra.

Is she ever in for a surprise.

First Mom announces that she’s dating Mia’s Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn’t have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?

Amazon.com Review

Mia Thermopolis is your average urban ninth grader. Even though she lives in Greenwich Village with a single mom who is a semifamous painter, Mia still puts on her Doc Martens one at a time, and the most exciting things she ever dreams about are smacking lips with sexy senior Josh Richter, “six feet of unadulterated hotness,” and passing Algebra I. Then Mia’s dad comes to town, and drops a major bomb. Turns out he’s not just a European politician as he’s always lead her to believe, but actually the prince of a small country! And Mia, his only heir, is now considered the crown princess of Genovia! She doesn’t even know how to begin to cope: “I am so NOT a princess…. You never saw anyone who looked less like a princess than I do. I mean, I have really bad hair… and… a really big mouth and no breasts and feet that look like skis.” And if this news wasn’t bad enough, Mia’s mom has started dating her algebra teacher, the paparazzi is showing up at school, and she’s in a huge fight with her best friend, Lilly. How much more can this reluctant Cinderella handle?

Offbeat Mia will automatically win the heart of every teenage girl who’s ever just wanted to fit in with as little fuss as possible. Debut author Meg Cabot’s writing is silly and entertaining, with tons of pop culture references that will make teens feel right at home within her pages. This is a wonderfully wacky read. (Ages 12 and older) –Jennifer Hubert

From Publishers Weekly

A teenager living in modern-day Greenwich Village in New York City discovers that she is now the heir apparent to the throne in a European country, in this novel, soon to be a motion picture starring Julie Andrews. Ages 12-up.

dream

A Dream Fufilled

With the biggest part of his cattle having been taken by the thieving redskins, Jacob Clarkson and his family load as much of of their household belongings as they can into a couple of prairie schooners and set out on a journey in hopes of relocating the once prosperous cattle ranching endeavor to the high mountain grasslands of present day Colorado.

The journey proves to be fraught with dangers, some of them of the harsh weather and high water variety, while others turn out to be of the manmade variety.

The journey becomes even more difficult after the rescue of a young lady who had been taken captive by a trio of banditos. Their intent had been to trade her to the Utes, who freely roam the South Park Basin, but first they have to get her back.

Through all of this, the Lord remains in charge and adds to the mixture, a helping of tender romance and true love between Becky and one of Jacob and Emily’s twin sons, Seth.

Not to be outdone by his brother, Sam manages a romance of his own after a mixup in homestead filings plays a major part in bringing him and Liz together.

While all this is going on, their families remain steadfast in their struggle to gain a toehold in the savage land that is the previously unsettled grasslands of the South Park Basin.

The Treemakers

Stay on guard. Be aware of your surroundings. Notice the nuances. Cover your tracks. Always be prepared. Question everything. This is how you stay alive, Joy. And this is how you keep the ones you love alive.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

This is the first book in the Treemakers Trilogy. This series is intended for mature YA audiences, as there are certain mature themes (abuse, character deaths, etc.,) which may be too emotionally intense for younger readers. The second book in the Treemakers Trilogy, “The Soultakers,” released on December 3rd, 2015, and book three, “The Seeker’s Keys,” will release on December 3, 2016.

 just

Just Plain Weird

Travis MacDuff is an ordinary teenager. His only concern is making his school’s football team, until he meets his new neighbor, a peculiar girl who leads him on a bizarre journey that threatens their lives as well as all life on the planet.

Just Plain Weird is a story about destiny and the triumph of young love over everything.

“Spoiler Warning” After posting this review I thought maybe I should put in this warning. Some people might consider parts of the rest of my review as a spoiler by telling too much of the story plot & etc. I tried to tell enough to let you know what its about and get you interested without telling too much of it. So don’t say I spoiled the story for you by telling too much if you read past this.

This was one fun read! Once I started reading it and got about 3 pages into it I just couldn’t put it down till I had finished it, at about 2:30 in the morning! I haven’t run across a book that has done that to me in a long time. It starts out with the teenage boy, 15 yr old Travis, from a upper lower class or lower middle class family that has some new people move in next door. When they moved in he noticed that there was a pretty girl about his age that was part of the family that moved in. It didn’t take long for him to notice that things were a little weird about them. He gets curious when he notices that no one has entered or left the house after they had first moved in and that neither of the two cars in the drive have moved. So he starts watching the house with his telescope from his tree house in his back yard.

He only has one friend, of the geek variety that’s pretty weird himself, that he just calls Raffles. Raffles catches Travis spying on the house next door from the tree house and talks him into going over and give them a “welcome to the neighborhood visit” to see what they can find out about them. That’s when Travis gets his first good look at Eliza, the girl next door, and falls instantly in love with her. Being an average guy it takes him a while to figure out that he has fallen in love with her. It’s during they’re welcome visit that Raffles notices something weird about the house next door. It’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

The next day Travis gets to finally talk to Eliza when she comes outside and starts to mow the backyard. He ends up helping her with all the yard work and after a bit of a touchy first start they get more comfortable with each other and it isn’t long before they have that feeling that they’ve known each other for years. After they finish the yard work Eliza takes Travis out for a drive in a nice brand new Lexus and that’s when things start getting very weird.

From there things move pretty fast. They get involved with an alien artifact that is several hundred thousands of yrs old. The artifact turns out to be a space ship that has lost its crew and has been waiting all those yrs for someone to tell it what to do. So they decide to help it get back to its home by doing a little time traveling with it and end up breaking the moon, helping another set of aliens find the earth that strips the planet of all its resources and wipes out all life on the Earth.

After a lot of other side adventures they eventually get everything fixed, the time line straightened out, fix the moon, and make it so that the evil aliens don’t find the earth. Putting everything pretty much back to normal before they head off looking for something else wild to do for fun.

There is one thing that should be fixed. It was very poorly edited and has several places where the words and the spelling are mixed to the point its almost dyslexic. Even the most basic word program could have corrected a lot of mistakes in its writing. Its like it was written using only “note pad”. Frequently there’s at least a couple of mistakes on almost every page and quit often there’s several mistakes to a page. It gets to the point that its frequently distracting and breaks the flow of the reading to the point of being irritating. But these are things that are mostly the publishers fault and doesn’t change the story or keep it from being a fun and entertaining read.

AMONG WOLVES

It’s the last place you should be.

Gabriel remembers the Last Day. He and Mags had been on a tour of the White House with the rest of Miss Kimble’s first-graders when it happened. They fled with the President to a long-abandoned bunker, even as the first of the bombs began to fall.

Ten years have passed, and now Gabriel is almost grown. He still lives deep inside the mountain, waiting for the world to thaw. But outside the storms continue to rage, and supplies are running low. The President says it will be okay, because they are the Chosen Ones. But Gabriel isn’t so sure. Gabriel’s their scavenger, and he’s seen what it’s like out there.

Then one day Gabriel finds a bloodstained map. The blood’s not a problem, nor are the frozen remains of the person it once belonged to. Gabriel’s used to seeing dead bodies. There’s far worse to be found in any Walmart or Piggly Wiggly you care to wander into.

Except this one he recognizes, and it shouldn’t be all the way out here. Now all Gabriel can think is how he’s going to make it back to the bunker and let the President know what he’s found.

But Gabriel’s troubles are only just beginning. For things are not as they seem inside the mountain, and soon he will face a much larger problem: how to get Mags and the others out.

To Kill for a Ghost

The Stolen Years, is a sweeping historical saga series of vendetta, love and loss, cultural heritage and the land.

This is book 1 in the series, a 36,000 word, near novel-length novella based on true 19th and 20th Century revenge crimes.

Ryn Shell transports readers to the beautiful but harsh Australian inland in the 1800s, with this vividly drawn and compelling tale of settlers and first peoples. The story switches back-and-forth, from 1882 to the late 1940s, to show how descendants are affected by past family secrets and crimes.

In 1882, Jane and Douglas Fife are hardworking sheep graziers doing their best to work a pastoral lease on what is the Woggan-Wandong Aboriginal people’s country. They guide fellow white settlers to live in an honourable way with the original custodians of the land.

New to the town of Fife Springs, where bigotry reins, is the Buckram family. Widowed baker Amy Buckram and her son Raymond are conniving with the butcher to end the harmony between the Fife family and the Aboriginal people.

Despite grabbing and scheming over land, the brutality of both people and nature, there is love and hope when the Buckram’s daughter, Charlotte, and the heir to Fife Downs Sheep Station, Alan Fife, fall in love. This is the perfect backdrop for a moving and compelling story.

Mother and son, Amy and Raymond, set out to unravel the Fife’s and Jarkanga’s families’ lives using teenage Charlotte as their disposable pawn.

BONUS: Back of book Glossary of Australian Words

With the word grazier = rancher, you will know that this book contains Australian words, e.g. station = ranch.

 roped

Roped

ENDORSEMENTS FOR ROPED

“Roped has much more tension and suspense per page than any book, adult or otherwise, I’ve read in years. Like the serial books I loved as a young person, Roped leaves you panting for the next installment. Entertaining, exciting, and colorful, the descriptions, particularly of the villainous Ed Fairgate after Buster’s demise, helps you remember why books were always better than movies. So much more show than tell. Crissy’s temper is a major theme. Her growth comes at a high price, but she does her folks proud and wins big. And teaches Christian values. Love certain phrases like, “Shame sifted over me like pollen in the springtime.” Judy Madsen Johnson, Author of Joy Cometh in the Morning, the Joy Postle Blackstone Story and Stories from the Front Lines, the Battle Against Abortion, judymadsenjohnson.com

“I read the novel Roped by DiAne Gates, because I was curious to see what kind of work she could produce, having been a writer alongside her for a few years. I was not excited about it because I do not generally like or read fiction. However, I want to say I found it truly a page-turner and I actually enjoyed it very much. I read it in one day, although I had many other things I should have been doing. I found myself, a Granny, quite anxious to know what happened to each character and felt a sense of satisfaction at the end of each episode, coupled with a sense of time passing while I wasn’t reading, something I’ve only before experienced while reading Frank Peretti . DiAne has written a great book for young adults, one that will engage them, I feel sure, and also will inspire teens to do the right thing, a lesson that is much needed in this day. I cannot emphasize my surprise at liking a piece of fiction. To me this says more than any other words I could say. I am glad I read it and look forward to the next in the series. Brava, DiAne!” Katharine Trauger, The Conquering Mom.com, katharinetrauger.wordpress.com

Fantasy of Flight 

Praise for Fantasy of Flight – “Her characters are vivid and believable and readers cannot help but be drawn into the story.” – AmiesBookReviews

My veil is gone and I need it back.

Stuck in the lethal Outer Rings of Glacium, I must fight to survive. And not just that; my true identity must remain the gravest of secrets. No one can find out I’m the Tatuma of Osolis – the princess of their enemy world – especially now I know why I’ve been veiled my entire life.

I have to believe I can do it, because only then can I continue the search for Prince Kedrick’s murderer and navigate my way back to King Jovan’s castle.
Has my mother refused Jovan’s peace offers and declared war? Do my brothers and Aquin know I’m alive? Who are my enemies and who are my friends?

Nothing is certain. Though…if I think about it, nothing has been certain in a long time.

Warning: Fighting, adventure, action, fantasy, sexual themes and heartbreak (about twice that found in Fantasy of Frost. Watch out for that cliff-hanger ending, too!)

The Secret of Sinbad’s Cave

Oh, and what about the treasure maps that were found accidentally? That is the beginning part of the story and Kathleen has discovered maps dating back to the 1800’s. The remainder of the young adults are so intrigued by this find that they are anxious to solve the mystery. It should also be mentioned that their farm is in a dire situation and will go up for sale soon.

In the final analysis, the reader is taken on a fascinating journey into grottos, a mystical land with little people, graced by the appearance of a fantail bird named Pi and enlightened with the wisdom of Abraham. On the opposite side, there are a couple of evil doers….Drake and Cortez that are also trying to locate the treasure by whatever means possible.

A most entertaining read for me and it contains mysteries, lots of mayhem and a wonderful ending.

Most highly recommended and for multiple reasons.

cold

Cold River

When Mandy lands in the middle of an old feud and someone keeps trying to kill her, instinct tells her to run. With the river rising and death a real possibility, will she find a reason to stay and chance the odds?

Part romance, part cozy mystery, part thriller, Cold River, like many of Liz Adair’s books, is a novel about family ties and second chances.

From The Deseret News:

“Cold River” is a light read, with emphasis on romantic entanglements and small-town politics…Readers expecting a complex thriller or a dark suspense book may be disappointed with “Cold River,” but those looking for light afternoon entertainment will enjoy it. The content is family friendly, with no sexual issues beyond a few kisses and a frank discussion about reasons not to let physical intimacy progress. While there is danger and some potentially violent situations, these are neither graphic nor overly threatening. The family relationships are well done. Especially entertaining is the sibling banter between Mandy and her young sister, who joins her in the backwoods and also falls in love … not with a boy, but with bluegrass.

From Alice Wills Gold’s blog: I’m so Funny (Sometimes):

Sometimes I wonder where my brain is. It wasn’t until I sat down to write this review that I realized how the title Cold River reflects the subject of the book. I swear I am blonde sometimes.

The gist of the story-line in Cold River is a gutsy gal takes a job as a superintendent of schools in the small town in the upper mid-west of the US. She has never lived in such a small town and so when she ends up renting a house right on the river, the river and its surrounding landscapes are a comfort to her as she acclimates to the small town life. The river also has significance in one of the main plots, but I hate to give away spoilers in the reviews I write, so you will just have to read the book yourself.

I fell in love with the male co-leads, if that’s what we can call them. There are three cousins that are completely different yet equally hunky and mysterious. Once the story got going it was fast paced and intriguing and the suspense and romance only grew my interest up until the very end.

I loved how the relationships all twist and intervene with one another; the mere idea is so consistent with small town living, especially because everyone is related in one way or another. I didn’t guess the villain of the story until they were revealed and that is not easy for an author to do…I always guess what’s going on, so I appreciated the surprise. It was a great surprise and I love when an author can get me shaking my head at myself for not guessing what was really going on in the story-line.

I am personally connected to the three subplots of music in schools, literacy, and gaining emotional maturity and I agreed with the viewpoint of the author on them all and enjoyed how Adair wove them into the greater story.

The end of the story was magnificent. I have a real hard time giving a book a good review if I don’t think the end was spectacular. It has to be not only spectacular but real to life and feel-good. I know that limits me, but I don’t think I am going to change now, so all you authors out there, write good endings. I like setting a book on the shelf knowing that it left me with a greater expectation from the world around me and the end has to leave me feeling good for that to happen.

I highly recommend this book. If I had to describe it in one word it would be adventurous. Get the book, it will take you on an adventure physically and emotionally.

Embattlement: The Undergrounders Series Book Two

The Undergrounders prevail. The Craniopolis falls. But victory proves bittersweet.

Embattlement is the second book in The Undergrounders Series, a sci-fi dystopian thriller trilogy. If you like captivating apocalyptic tales, gritty complex heroines, and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love this fast-paced, end-of-the-world adventure!

Our story picks up immediately where Hinkens‘ first book in The Underground Series, Immurement, ended. Sixteen year old Derry Connelly is determined to return to the Craniopolis and end the evil human experimentation and cloning being forced upon captured Undergrounders. Her goal also includes finding out if her brother, Owen, is truly dead. But, she cannot go it alone. Will she persuade the Rogues to join forces with what is left of the Council? And, what will she find when she travels to Shoshane City which was destroyed in the meltdown?

Hinkens’ second novel in The Underground Series, Embattlement, starts off a little slow. Once you get past the first few chapters it takes off and never stops. There is a host of new characters mixed in with the old; and, they bring a lot to the table. Derry’s character struggles with her new role as leader and balancing that with her feelings for Sven.

The ending to this book really surprised me. And, that has not happened in a long time. It was one of those “Oh, sh*t!” in a bad way cliffhanger endings. I loved it! There is no way I will miss reading the next book.

rumor

Rumors 

Battling for her own identity while barricading painful emotions, Allie won’t escape her senior year without new wounds. After all, tragedy is no stranger to her. The events that unfold will draw readers deep into a well of emotion in Rumors, a Lingering Echoes Prequel.

It was fast-paced, well-written, intriguing, and very relatable…The feels are definitely there, in my opinion. I suggest giving this one a read before starting Lingering Echoes, and if you’ve already read that one, then still come back to Rumors because it clarifies some things and provides an understanding of why Allie is so detached. I highly recommend this one.

http://www.itchingforbooks.com/2014/07/review-rumors-by-erica-kiefer.html

Rumors is a [novel] that asks the poignant question: Do we change when we experience grief? Is this change something we have control over and is it okay?

I enjoyed how Erica Kiefer writes so clearly and has control over her sentences and scenes. When there is a flashback, we are already prepared for the worst… it is an excellent tie in to the full novel “Lingering Echoes“.

cap

Captivated

I let out a huff and forced a smile. “You’re a vampire.” I stated.

Dean tilted his chin up and smiled. “I have no fangs.” he said through his teeth.

I examined the glistening white canines. They were normal, just like mine. “You retract them when you don’t need them.” I said.

Dean moved across the table and put his face up to mine. His mouth was a torturous breath away from my own. “Then why haven’t I sucked your blood Lina?” He whispered right before pressing his soft lips against mine. Then he inched towards my neck and lingered his lips on my pulse. His soft breathing tickled my skin and triggered a chill that shot up my spine. My blood jumped to a rush and began to throb for him. If he were a vampire, I swear I’d let him suck me. “Why aren’t I biting you right now?” He whispered. It took everything I had in me not to melt into the seat and land as a puddle on the ground.

DESCRIPTION:

After Mindy’s childhood best friend, Dean Aiken, shuts her and everyone else out of his life, she learns to move on. Years pass and she gets used to the fact that he’s no longer a part of her life, but things begin to change…

Mindy’s new best friend, Markus Medina, witnesses Dean kill two people behind a club. Mindy has a hard time believing him, especially when he mentions that the bodies disappear. Poof! Into thin air. Markus decides he has to follow Dean around in order to get evidence that he’s been killing people, so he doesn’t sound like a nut to the police.

Despite Marcus’ crazy theories about the possibility of Dean not being human. And not to mention the fact that he’s dangerous. Mindy can’t help that she may be falling in love with him. Even after hiding their feelings for each other from the world. Dean and Mindy being together stirs up dangers that neither of them could ever imagine. When she finds out about what Dean really is and the world he tried to keep her away from…it’s already too late.

ugly

The Ugly Princess: The Legend of the Winnowwood

It doesn’t call to mine. Yes, when I look at the girl in the mirror, I see a young woman of average height and slight build. I see her lovely emerald green eyes and I see her coarse, orange hair poking out in all directions like some unnatural haystack. I see the forty-seven warts that line her face, which accompany one large lump and two small boils. You’d probably think that I would be more than eager to trade for the great gift of beauty because I know some, if not all of you, would call me hideous. But I don’t think of myself as ugly.

I think of myself as powerful, strong and fierce – for I have magical powers – powers that amaze and terrify me at times. And today is the most important day of my life, because today my mother will say the words over me and seal my fate. For I, Olive, am the last of the Winnowwood and this is my story.

Based on the award winning screenplay of the same name, The Ugly Princess will take you on an amazing adventure filled with twists, turns and an ending that will take your breath away because it is also a love story of the most unusual, magical kind.

“In the tradition of The Princess Bride (with somewhat less whimsy) and The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, Smith’s debut is a fairy tale in a new world…. The twists along this charming road make for an enchanting journey.” — Kirkus Reviews —

Phoenix Child

There should be a law, a Universal Rule, as to how much weirdness can happen to a person.

Fifteen-year-old Sara walks into the San Francisco Center for the Circus Arts determined to ignore the freaky things happening to her. As powers she doesn’t want and can’t control overwhelm her, Sara must decide if she can trust the strangers who say they are her family … descended from a common ancestor four thousand years ago.

Sara clings to her contented and well-planned life as a foster kid, successfully working the system, as dreams, powers, and magical creatures drag her towards her destiny.
When the ancient evil that killed her parents comes to San Francisco, Sara is forced to choose between her fears and her desire to protect those she loves.

Sometimes great things are thrust upon us. Sara wishes this supposed ‘greatness’ didn’t include a new name, unicorns, and catching on fire.

I would say that this series has the potential to be better than Harry Potter, and I am a JK Rowling fan. I say series because it has to be. The author only gives any real gritty background on one of the main characters, but gives us enough of a taste of the other main characters that she has opened herself up, not only for sequels (which MUST comme) but for numerous prequels. If she is anything like some writers that I know, these characters are wandering around in her head demanding that their stories be told. Sapphire’s story was the lynchpin and had to be told first, but oh what an array of stories are possible from here!

It’s book review time again; this time I will tell you about Phoenix Child by Alica McKenna Johnson. This is your classic going through the changes teenage story with a couple of delightful twists. The book carries us along with the heroine as she works her way through the usual teenage changes plus a whole lot more.
On a more serious note, Alica gives us a peek into the world faced by far too many children, the world of the “System”. This peek might make a few folks slightly uncomfortable, and if it does, that’s a good thing.
Don’t run away now, because this book is filled with magic, adventure, and mythical creatures. Alica’s style is relaxed and easy to read, almost like she’s sitting right beside you, telling you the story. I read half in one sitting and wanted to finish it, but time did not allow. I did finish it the next day. I am truly hoping there will be a second book because I love these characters.
Well done Alica, five stars.

ryn

The Ryn

Centuries ago, an oracle foretold of the young woman who would defeat E’veria’s most ancient enemy, the Cobelds. But after two centuries of relative peace, both the prophecy and the Cobelds have been relegated to lore—and only a few remain watchful for the promised Ryn.

Finally, a child is born who matches the oracle’s description, but a Cobeld curse accompanies her birth. Led to believe they succeeded in killing the prophesied child, the Cobelds emerge from hiding with plans to overtake the Kingdom.

But the child survived.

Secreted away and called “Rose” for the first nineteen years of her life, Rynnaia E’veri has no idea of her true identity until a chance meeting with an injured knight reveals not only her parentage and true name, but the task assigned her by the oracle: discover the Remedy that will destroy the Cobelds’ power.

Now, her time has come.

Offered the assistance of pirates, scribes, storytellers, a young woman who died centuries ago, and the knight who is quickly working his way into her heart, Rynnaia is fortified with friends. But if the Ryn is to complete her task, she must come to terms with not only who she is, but for whom she must be willing to die. For the kingdom’s survival depends on her.

The Ryn begins an epic re-imagining of the classic Grimm fairy tale, Snow White & Rose Redwhich is concluded in Eyes of E’veria book two, The Remedy, available now.
…but the Eyes of E’veria series is only beginning. The Seahorse Legacy (Eyes of E’veria, book 3–releasing May 2014) begins the second 2-book set in this series, retelling The Twelve Dancing Princesses with . . . pirates . . . and will conclude that tale with The Sunken Realm in 2015.

Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter’s foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.

Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.

But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.

And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

Shearwater: A Mermaid Romance

“If you like mermaids (merrows, in this book), and fantasy, I think you will enjoy this different take on the lore. I can tell you one thing, I want to visit Ireland even more now! The description of Portballintrae and the surrounding countryside makes me want to travel there and visit the castle ruins, and see the sheep.” – Kelsey

A month ago I was a normal teenage girl, worried about getting into a good school on a scholarship for my singing. Those dreams died in the same accident that killed my parents. I was shipped off to live in Ireland with a grandfather I didn’t even know existed, and learned my whole life had been a lie. My mother’s past was filled with tragic secrets… secrets that refused to stay buried.

I keep running into two strange guys with abilities I can’t understand. I think they’re trying to kill each other. Or maybe they’re just trying to kill me. But I’m discovering powers of my own. Maybe I’ll show them that I’m the dangerous one. Maybe they’ll learn just how dangerous one girl can be.

Shearwater is a young adult mermaid novel that will appeal to lovers of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, witches, Irish mythology, and supernatural folklore.

The Grimm Chronicles, Vol. 2

Now, senior year has begun. With it comes a new challenge at school, where bullies have grown bolder and classes more challenging. As if that’s not enough, Alice must face off against a collection of Corrupted who all share a terrible secret, one that might awaken a creature capable of doing untold damage. To uncover the secret, Alice will have to face off against a man-eating lizard, a bloodthirsty sea captain, and a mysterious wizard who can see into the future …

This book contains the following episodes:

Episode Four: The Orphanage of Doom

After facing off with the dreaded dwarf named Sam Grayle, Alice finds her dreams plagued by two separate visions. In one, she’s floating through a massive mansion filled with old, dusty furniture and drafty windows. Shadows dance across the wall. Children cry out in terror. A mysterious animal growl echoes through the halls.

In her second dream, a terrible smoke-like creature roams the streets of Minneapolis, feeding off human victims while it plots a terrible revenge that threatens to have far-reaching consequences. Alice must decide which dream to pursue: does she foil the smoke-creature’s plot or try to rescue the children from an unseen evil?

Episode five: Blood and Thunder

Upon making a surprising discovery in a Corrupted’s lair, Alice finds herself torn between her responsibilities as the hero and her desire to live a normal life. She’s been granted a unique opportunity to leave the entire world of the hero behind. But before she can make her ultimate
choice, her nightmares return …

A ship is coming. And aboard that ship is one of the most terrifying Corrupted creatures Alice has faced yet. In order to face her foe, Alice will have to do without the help of her scorned friend, Br’er Rabbit.

At school, a miraculous recovery by the star of the baseball team prompts more questions, all of them bringing Alice back to that fateful encounter at the orphanage of doom. To make matters worse, a school bully has taken his terrorizing too far, a friend is in trouble, and the mysterious ship in Alice’s nightmare holds a terrible secret …

Episode six: The Order of the Golden Dragon

Three mysterious golden coins. What is their purpose? Alice must find out, and in order to do so, she will need to use all of the skills she’s learned so far. She cannot fail. Failure means a fate worse than death.

Agnim the Mage haunts her dreams, using his terrible black magic to plague Alice with nightmares. Once a character in the Grimms’ fairy tales, his magical powers have stronger and stronger the more Corrupted he has become. He has foreseen a cataclysmic event that could mean the end of the world, and only the hero stands in his way. But in order to stop him, Alice will have to find him. And soon. Before Agnim steals her sanity and destroys her mind.

Agnim knows her weakness. He knows her fears. He controls her dreams. He is the most dangerous Corrupted Alice has ever faced. There is no guarantee she can defeat him.

In these trying times, only one thing is certain:

The Golden Dragon will awaken.

Top Selling Equestrian Novel for Teens and Women Everywhere!

Find out why readers are saying they can’t put this novel down

Seventeen-year-old Jane has found the horse of her dreams or so she thinks. Windsong has the breeding, training, and flashy good looks to win medals at national competitions, and Jane figures she’ll point him down the centerline and waltz out of the arena with enough blue ribbons to overflow her tack trunk. He is a tall, black, imported Swedish Warmblood trained to the Grand Prix level, the epitome of elegance and grace whenever he is not carrying on like a fire-breathing dragon. He’s scary. The thought of climbing aboard makes her limbs jittery and her brain stop working. She’s not sure she can handle a horse like Windsong and neither is the inconsiderate, condescending Stetson-wearing lout she is forced to work with at the barn. Cory openly questions Jane’s horsemanship. And worse, Kate, Jane’s beloved trainer, seemingly sides with him! Tempers blaze and horseshoes fly, but something else begins to spark. Can Jane overcome her fear of Windsong to win her goal of competing in the North American Junior Championships and not lose her heart at the same time?

Full-Frontal Snogging:
Kissing with all the trimmings, lip to lip, open mouth, tongues … everything.

Her dad’s got the mentality of a Teletubby (only not so developed). Her cat, Angus, is trying to eat the poodle next door. And her best friend thinks she looks like an alien — just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Ergghhhlack. Still, add a little boy-stalking, teacher-baiting, and full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, and Georgia’s year just might turn out to be the most fabbitty fab fab ever!

Auburn: Outcasts and Underdogs

And then we weren’t. Every morning I had to pick up the jigsaw puzzle of my life and rebuild it into something vaguely resembling a person. A hazy shadow of the happiness I was faking.

And then I didn’t. I didn’t become whole. No, there was no glue that could bind me back together. No remedy to fix any of us. We weren’t lost anymore, but we remembered losing our way. We weren’t freaks, but we remembered living on the fringe. We weren’t losers or loners, but we still remembered hiding from the world.

We were Auburn. I was Auburn. And this is my story.

sin

Sinful Cinderella

And you thought the stepsisters were wicked….

I’m not who they think I am. A docile girl who meekly obeys her stepmother and stepsisters. Some kind of sick angel who cheerfully bears their mistreatment. That’s what I WANT them to think. Because then they won’t suspect what I’m really up to.

The ball, the prince – it’s all part of my plan to come out on top. Stepmother and her demented daughters will pay for every floor I have scoured, every sneer I have borne. They don’t know about the white magic, how I use it to enhance myself. They can’t see that my heart is black as midnight, rotten as a poisoned apple.

They’re about to find out.

Wicked Sense

Fall in love with a magical romance

Skye’s London coven sends her to Seattle’s Greenwood High to find the Singularity, an unusually gifted witch who may break the Veil and trigger a dangerous new era of witch-hunting. Things get complicated when Skye meets a charming new classmate, Drake. Skye’s job becomes even trickier when she clashes with Jane, an intimidating rival witch.

Drake falls for the mysterious Skye, but odd accidents, potion mix-ups, and the occasional brush with death kind of get in the way of romance. Once he discovers Skye is a witch, he goes to war for her, even though his only weapons are a nice set of abs and a sharp sense of humor.

Fighting off wicked Jane and the other dark forces hell-bent on seizing the Singularity’s immense power, Skye and Drake will risk everything to save the covens.

Going on a date has never been harder.

Since the Sirens: Sirens of the Zombie Apocalypse

Can zombie books keep you alive?

When the Zombie Apocalypse came to Liam’s neighborhood, it came with horsemen’s trumpets. Tornado sirens wailed for an hour, as if to ensure everyone knew there was no going back.

Unfortunately, Liam was a fifteen-year-old boy condemned by bad decisions to spend the summer in the city with his 104-year-old religious great grandmother. When Grandma Marty tries to send him on his way to save himself, something deep inside awakens–he chafes at the thought of leaving her to die, and instead sees himself as a hero from one of his zombie books who can accomplish the impossible: rescue her.

As they step out her front door together to face a city filled with scared refugees, desperate law enforcement, a zombie-hunting military, and opportunist criminals and looters, Liam realizes he tied his fate to a woman who can’t walk more than ten feet without his help.

When the zombies begin to overshadow all their other problems, Liam comes to appreciate why there are no atheists in foxholes.

Coralina: The Nine Princesses Series

Some princesses are only pretty on the outside….

Coralina Corissa, known as “Coco” to her eight sisters, is the fairest princess of a hundred kingdoms. And she knows it. Her beauty has always given her anything she wanted… and any MAN she wanted.

Runa Realm is facing a new threat. Strange bandits, disguised as nobles, are attacking beautiful women to steal their hair. Coralina isn’t concerned. Until Prince Luxley, her favorite (but not only) lover, gets clobbered by a peasant called Gord, who mistakenly assumed the prince was a bandit.

Outraged, Coralina plans to punish the peasant by deliberately breaking his heart. But Gord is nearly blind. For the first time ever, Coralina must rely on more than her looks to ensnare a man. But the harder she flirts, the more Gord seems to hate her. And the more her own heart (and hair) becomes endangered.

The Nine Princesses novels is a series that chronicles the adventures of an unconventional family of princesses, the struggles they face in a kingdom often hostile to their humble origins, and the day-to-day dramas of nine young women whose personalities often clash like swords. Fans of Gail Carson Levine and Shannon Hale would enjoy these princess novels.

orderThe Natural Order

Tristan Fairholm has always liked fixing things. It makes up for everything in his life he can’t mend—his parents’ divorce, his father’s alcoholism, and his little brother’s weak heart. But when he kills his brother in a car accident, he destroys the only thing he truly cared for.

He has nearly given up when a mysterious woman appears and offers him a place at her school. Along with fifteen other juvenile delinquents, Tristan is given a chance to escape penitentiary while he studies magic in the wild mountains of Canada.

As he learns to extract and shape raw magic, Tristan finds unexpected friendship in his fellow students, from lovable Rusty Lennox to mysterious, fey Amber Ashton. But when the school is threatened by a vandal who endangers the lives of everyone living there, Tristan learns that the magic they are harvesting is being put to a dark and dangerous use. While he races to uncover the vandal before his friends are harmed, Tristan must decide if his new friends and his freedom are more important than his morals.

If you loved Harry Potter and The Magicians, you won’t want to miss this new YA series.

However, as much as I hate giving my girlfriend the satisfaction, this one was actually really good. I pray to god she never reads this post, as I’ll never hear the end of it, but I really liked this one. It’s got a great plot, a creative world that you can really visualize, and brilliant characters. The only fault that I can find is that there is no sequel written yet ( R.J. Vickers get your ass into gear already!!!)

The Natural Order leaves you guessing all the way through, and unlike most books I’ve read, you’re puzzled right up until the very end. That is until all of a sudden everything comes together with the most Holy Mother of epic revelations I’ve ever seen.

A really good read; I liked harry potter but to be honest I prefer this one.

“Sophisticated, sexy, surprising!” — J.R. Ward

“Colleen Gleason’s irresistible…series is deliciously dark and delightfully entertaining.” —Chicago Tribune

“Gleason’s publishing debut turns vampire stories—and romances—on their ear.” —Detroit Free Press

Beneath the glitter of dazzling nineteenth century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil…

Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long ago taken control of the world.

In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake. But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous moonlit streets, Victoria’s heart is torn between London’s most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her dark, dangerous duty.

And when she comes face-to-face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make a choice between duty and love.

Praise for The Gardella Vampire Hunters Series

“The Rest Falls Away, Gleason’s publishing debut…turns vampire stories–and romances–on their ear with a decidedly dark, decidedly unsentimental Regency heroine who stakes the undead with the best of them.” — Detroit Free Press

“The undead rise to great heights through Gleason’s phenomenal storytelling. She creates a chilling world with the perfect atmosphere of fear and sexual tension.” — Romantic Times

“Gleason keeps upping the ante with each novel, weaving the characters around her readers with each engaging conversation and narrative, every stage set of all the appropriate gothic gloom and melting beauty. — Book Fetish

“…Above all, the writing is what recommends this book most. Gleason’s writing is sharp and taut, which makes for excellent action sequences, and a plot that travels quickly from the start. The writing strength alone gives me ample reassurance that this potentially plot-heavy series is in the right hands. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment.” – Smart Bitches Love Trashy Books

Bougainvillea Blues

This is a heartfelt coming of age story, a tale of love and loss set in the breezy, warm air of 1960’s San Diego. It takes you back to a simpler era, and pulls on your heartstrings as you journey with a young man who’s adrift in an unfamiliar sea of emotions and desperately looking for land.

“A modern day Holden Caulfield speaks to us honestly about growing up in a totally dysfunctional family including a sexually-abusive mother. 12 year old Joey speaks to us with a true voice and we adults can remember back to  when we were lacking in self-esteem, confused by raging hormones, falling in love, doubting ourselves. . . . I particularly enjoyed all the historical details of what life was like in Southern California of the 1960’s…..Dancing the Watusui, going to Fed Co, how expensive calling long distance was.  I’m not as interested in sports as Joey is, so I must admit that I skipped a couple of details about the baseball and football games but I did enjoy remembering who Roger  Maris and Willie Mays were.  A captivating read and  a fresh change from all the “girl” stories of today. There are too few honest and frank coming- of- age boy stories and this one hits the mark.”

A band of offbeat rebels determined to turn age-old tyranny on its head…

If the High One’s brutal system is to be destroyed, the rebels will need to penetrate impregnable illusions, out-plot the world’s greatest plotters, survive vicious attacks, and confront their own deepest fears. But in the end, the greatest danger to their success will be the alluring power of illusion and unthinking belief to control.

Kings and dragons, warriors and scholars, would-be prophets and rebels, all discover that the question—What is real, and what is not?—is the ultimate question.

This bundled set includes the four full-length novels of the Wood Cow Chronicles fantasy series: Helga: Out of Hedgelands (Book One), The Overending (Book Two), Silversion (Book Three), and Willowers (Book Four).

Almost immediately after casting, strange things start to happen both on and off the stage. Curtains fall. Mirrors are shattered. People are hurt in true phantom style. They all seem like accidents until Rebecca receives notes and phone calls that hint at something more sinister. Is Justyn bringing to life the twisted character of the phantom? Or in real life are the roles of the hero and the villain reversed? Rebecca doesn’t know who to trust, but she knows she’s running out of time as she gets closer and closer to opening night.

Auburn: Outcasts and Underdogs 

And then we weren’t. Every morning I had to pick up the jigsaw puzzle of my life and rebuild it into something vaguely resembling a person. A hazy shadow of the happiness I was faking.

And then I didn’t. I didn’t become whole. No, there was no glue that could bind me back together. No remedy to fix any of us. We weren’t lost anymore, but we remembered losing our way. We weren’t freaks, but we remembered living on the fringe. We weren’t losers or loners, but we still remembered hiding from the world.

We were Auburn. I was Auburn. And this is my story.

Whistlin’ Dixie

A woman protecting her family…..
Dixie Harris charged into the county sheriff’s office with a sassy sway and a smart mouth, eager to give the sheriff, and anyone else, a piece of her mind. When she locks horns with the devil himself, in the form of Mac Coalson, she quickly learns he has a temper to rival hers, even if he’s the living epitome of her sexual fantasies.

When the two unite to catch a potential murderer, it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep it, “business only”. But that’s hard to do when their combined attraction is volatile enough to burn down the town.

Robin in the Hood

“Is it any wonder I became a bank robber?”
But she never dreamed she’d fall in love—
Wealthy high school student Robin McArthur thinks she has it all figured out when it comes to bilking her work-a-holic dad for guilt money as a substitute for his genuine affection. Until one day he suffers a stroke at his law office, and she learns the brutal truth:

Mindspeak 

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.

One Crazy Summer

By Scott McElhaney

With over 175,000 books downloaded worldwide, the bestselling author of The Mystic Saga, Dominion, Saving Brooksie, and Ghosts of Ophidian now brings you a tale of three teenagers who may have just found a modern day treasure map at their summer job.

It’s the summer of 1999 and the price of gas is $1.09 per gallon, J-Lo is releasing her first album, and in the small town of Riverton, Bradley Brock is searching for 1.3 million dollars.

With the whole summer ahead of him, Bradley stumbles unwittingly into his first summer job. While it appears to be an opportunity to learn responsibility and make a few bucks in the process, it is anything but! With a manager that likes to play pranks and sports in the store, a cashier that is encouraged to harass customers, and a crazy guy who knocks holes in the walls, Brad finds himself almost alone in his sanity.

Then Brad discovers a journal that documents a fellow employee’s search for a large bag of money that was lost many years ago. With the assistance of two of his friends, he embarks on a journey to follow the trail of the money and ultimately to nab it for themselves.

The only problem – someone else is searching for the same bag of money and he’s willing to kill for it.

Scott McElhaney is the recipient of the Xulon Book Award for his first suspense novel “Mommy’s Choice.” Scott is a veteran of the US Navy, a loyal husband of more than 18 years, and a father of two boys. He is currently employed as a finance supervisor at the Matco Tools corporate office while he maintains his “side job” as an author of suspense and science fiction. This book is the results of spending more than 5 years as the “world’s worst store manager” (in his opinion) at a local business that will remain unnamed – some of the best years of Scott’s life.

The Treemakers

By Christina I. Rozelle

Stay on guard. Be aware of your surroundings. Notice the nuances. Cover your tracks. Always be prepared. Question everything. This is how you stay alive, Joy. And this is how you keep the ones you love alive.

Sixteen-year-old Joy Montgomery, daughter of Zephyr the Magnificent, the great magician, can only reminisce of better times. Before the Superiors. Before the uprisings. Long ago. Before the dying Earth ripped the family she loved away from her.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

This is the first book in the Treemakers Trilogy. This series is intended for mature YA audiences, as there are certain mature themes (abuse, character deaths, etc.,) which may be too emotionally intense for younger readers. The second book in the Treemakers Trilogy, “The Soultakers,” will release on December 3rd, 2015.

Sparks and Ashes

By Natalie West

Rea Ashby was just your average vampire. She had a cat, a nemesis, and a best friend to share in all her irreverent adventures. Each day was endlessly predictable as the next, until a representative from the ominous Vardoc Council came to town and took her and the rest of the vampire youth with him when he left.

Forcibly relocated to a monastery in the middle of the Canadian Rockies, Rea and her friends find themselves in the middle of a constant struggle. A struggle to train, a struggle to survive, but most of all, a struggle not to lose themselves in the process.

Tensions are stretched to the brink as Rea makes a forbidden human friend in town, and in the process, discovers a secret that shakes the very foundations of everything she’s been led to believe. But Rea’s not the only one with a secret. The Council has a secret of its own. One that could change everything…

Wow. Absolutely, WOW!
Natalie’s writing is absolutely amazing. I love YA literature, but I always find myself frustrated at the lack of depth of character as well as the complete predictability of the plot; Sparks and Ashes is new and exciting! It is not limited by the genre, but instead finds ways to use the freedoms of YA to explore this world through the eyes of a protagonist that is unlike any I have ever read before.

secrets kindle free books

Shackled

By Angela Carling

After shy, quiet Lucy and her family move from their small hometown in Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, she is surprised when Ryan, the most popular boy at school asks her out. Soon, she is swept up in a whirlwind romance and her naïve and trusting nature allows her to fall head over heels in love with her too-good-to-be suitor. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself enraptured by the excitement of her new relationship, leaving her blinded to the warning signs of danger ahead. Can her fairy tale romance last, or will she find that her prince charming is more like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Carling writes a compelling novel that had me on pins and needles. Lucy is a very naive teenager, as many teenagers are, and her story is extremely compelling–one I think all females should read, especially as abuse in relationships comes in all forms and crosses all age barriers. This isn’t just a book for teens, but for all women.

I found myself, on many an occasion, vocally chiding the characters, especially Lucy, as the novel progressed. Unfortunately, Lucy tends to make poor decision after poor decision, so blinded by the “love” she and Ryan share that she gives into his every demand without much thought. Now, while some of the situations in the novel seem far-fetched, the more I think about them, the more likely I think they are to actually happen. While I am able to sit here and say that Lucy makes some extremely stupid decisions, I am removed from the context and, quite honestly, might have made some of the same choices had I been in her shoes, and I’m a grown woman.

I liked the back and forth narration within this novel, giving readers a glimpse into the mind of both Ryan and Lucy, which helps explains some of the crazy choices they make. Though I admit that I am not a fan of Ryan in the least, obtaining his viewpoint did put the novel in perspective and explained a lot to me in terms of his actions, especially as I began to understand his home life. There are no excuses for what he does throughout the novel, but I loved that Carling gives her readers an inside glimpse, explaining where the possessiveness comes from and, even though I highly dislike Ryan and his father, I enjoyed gaining an understanding of them.

Overall, I really liked this novel, especially as it focuses on psychological abuse and not sexual abuse, which I wouldn’t have been able to handle. This is a very creepy story, and it’s one everyone needs to hear. Five stars.

My Ladybird Story

By Magus Tor

John Bird has never fit in. He can’t be the all American boy his dad wants him to be, he’s bullied at school and he can’t bear to look at himself in the mirror. While most boys his age are playing sports and kissing girls, John can only find comfort in the secret he keeps hidden away in a box in his room…

When feisty Aureus crashes into his life, John starts the long process of realizing that it’s what is inside us that counts and that true friends love us, no matter what our secrets are.
It’s time John learns to embrace the school taunt, “Ladybird” and grow into the person he is meant to be.

*****5 stars***** “My Ladybird Story by Magus Tor was a fascinating read for me. While I cannot speak from experience, the story of how John slowly makes the transition from hating his body, to understanding the source of the hate, and then moving towards the solution (i.e. the transformation into a woman) was very realistic and very emotional, too. The writing was well done, and you could not help but feel for John. His fears and emotions were very well described, and I liked that the reactions of the people around him also seemed to be very realistic, i.e. not just “Oh yeah, it’s all fine.” I enjoyed reading this book very much. It had a nice flow, and shows that you don’t need action and violence to make a story stand out.” By Kim Anisi for Readers’ Favorite

“… An inspiring, empowering chronicle of self-discovery and fearless pride sure to entertain and inform both cisgender and transgender readers.” Kirkus Reviews

“I admire the confidence of Tor in approaching the subject so unwaveringly. If you’re looking for a basic story of young love, friendship, and identity focusing on the subject of what it is to be transgender, this is a story of hope at its core. The intention of the material and its positive outlook for LGBT issues should be applauded.” Self-Publishing Review

Time Will Tell

By J.A. Roth

14 year old Sydnie Hayes appears to have it all brains, beauty, supportive family, and close friends. What’s missing from her life? What every 14 year old girl dreams about…love. Her life changes the day she sets eyes on Ryder Morgan, it’s more than his intoxicatingly good looks and mesmerizing brown eyes, it’s the way he carries himself with an air of sophistication way beyond his years. But there is more to him than meets the eye, as she delves into his puzzling past to reveal a truth that ultimately puts both of their lives in danger. She struggles to accept the fact that she must soon say good-bye to the love of her life….forever perhaps.

I couldn’t book this book down! It was a great read and I enjoyed the momentum J.A. Roth carried throughout the book. References to time periods one of the main character experiences were insightful and educational for me as a reader. I am eagerly looking forward to the release of the second edition!

Obviously young adult books are written by adults, but too often they are stiff, formal and pandering. Not the case in “Time Will Tell”. J Roth tells the story in perfect 15 year old perspective. A totally fun and captivating read. Looking forward to the next book!!!!

I finished Time Will Tell in one day. It was an easy read with a good pace to make me want to keep reading! I enjoyed getting to know the characters and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next for Ryder and Sydnie!

The First Book of Demons

By Raquel Dove

Alexandra is just trying to make it through high school when her life suddenly becomes a hot mess. After what was supposed to be a peaceful camping trip with friends has her waking up in another world filled with handsome demons and fantastical creatures, Alex does everything she can to get back to some semblance of normalcy.

But when feelings start to develop for Lord Balthazar, the demon holding her captive, she has a hard time finding the desire to return home.

This book was awesome. Everything about this book made me what more. I had a hard time in the beginning while father and son argued about taking a mate and I found myself looking for a reason not to scream what ever happened to “mating” for love!?! When the only way to unlock powers is a knife to the chest, I wanted to cry “what happens when she just dies!!!”

Then we enter into a totally alternate universe run by Lord Sultans that are killed in their sleep then to be replaced by the oldest prince that has a totally different view of how the kingdom should be run, some in a good way but others in a not so good way. Forcing a sibling to marry two people that the oldest doesn’t desire is no way for an older brother to behave. The chemistry between Belthazar and Alexandra is unmistakable after only a few meetings but neither party wants to admit the attraction for the other, which leads to several “girl” kidnappings that are supposed to be taken as a rescue mission. Then here comes the knight in demon armor that takes back Alexandra only to in short time periods lose her once again to another who wants to rule the kingdom.

AMONG WOLVES

By R.A. Hakok

There’s only one place left that’s safe.

It’s the last place you should be.

Gabriel remembers the Last Day. He had been on a tour of the White House with Mags and the rest of Miss Kimble’s first-graders when it happened. They fled with the President to a long-abandoned bunker, even as the first of the bombs began to fall.

Ten years have passed, and now the children are almost grown. They still live deep inside the mountain, waiting for the world to thaw. But outside the storms continue to rage, and supplies are running low. The President says it will be okay, because they are the Chosen Ones. But Gabriel isn’t so sure. Gabriel’s their scavenger, and he’s seen what it’s like out there.

Then one day Gabriel finds a bloodstained map. The blood’s not a problem, nor are the frozen remains of the person it once belonged to. Gabriel’s used to seeing dead bodies. There’s far worse to be found in any Walmart or Piggly Wiggly you care to wander into.

Except this one he recognizes, and it shouldn’t be all the way out here. Now all Gabriel can think is how he’s going to make it back to the bunker and let the President know what he’s found.

But Gabriel’s troubles are only just beginning. For things are not as they seem inside the mountain, and soon he will face a much larger problem: how to get Mags and the others out.

Lisa Matthews has been in love with her best friend since kindergarten. They’re close as can be, they’ve even slept in each other’s bed. But they’ve never kissed. Weeks away from her seventeenth birthday, Lisa hopes that soon things will change between them. But when Tony comes home after summer soccer camp, his mind is focused on someone else. And worse, that new girl is a soccer player.

Fighting for her love, Lisa gets carried away and makes a stupid decision: Without the least bit of talent or any passion for the sport whatsoever, she goes for the co-ed soccer team.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

The book is a standalone. No cliffhanger! (You’re welcome!)

There are more books about the Grover Beach Team, all of them standalones, except 3+4.

The Glass Girls

By Eric Scott Johnston

“This is a story journey… that plays on one’s emotions the way a master pianist plays the piano…”- Joy MacCauley Amazon Review

“Two stories told simultaneously seamlessly side by side interwoven and intertwined, something only a gifted and skilled writer can successfully manage to pull off.”- Judy Lopez Amazon Review

DESCRIPTION

He was having strange dreams, and they say that’s why he did it.

Forty-two years later, the people who encountered this soldier in the depths of the jungle begin to emerge and weave together a remarkable story of the past and present taking the reader from the streets of Cologne, Germany to the ancient temples of Cambodia on a quest to find a soldiers grave, and with it, the truth.

The First Book of Demons

By Raquel Dove

Alexandra is just trying to make it through high school when her life suddenly becomes a hot mess. After what was supposed to be a peaceful camping trip with friends has her waking up in another world filled with handsome demons and fantastical creatures, Alex does everything she can to get back to some semblance of normalcy.

But when feelings start to develop for Lord Balthazar, the demon holding her captive, she has a hard time finding the desire to return home.

This book was awesome. Everything about this book made me what more. I had a hard time in the beginning while father and son argued about taking a mate and I found myself looking for a reason not to scream what ever happened to “mating” for love!?! When the only way to unlock powers is a knife to the chest, I wanted to cry “what happens when she just dies!!!”

Then we enter into a totally alternate universe run by Lord Sultans that are killed in their sleep then to be replaced by the oldest prince that has a totally different view of how the kingdom should be run, some in a good way but others in a not so good way. Forcing a sibling to marry two people that the oldest doesn’t desire is no way for an older brother to behave. The chemistry between Belthazar and Alexandra is unmistakable after only a few meetings but neither party wants to admit the attraction for the other, which leads to several “girl” kidnappings that are supposed to be taken as a rescue mission. Then here comes the knight in demon armor that takes back Alexandra only to in short time periods lose her once again to another who wants to rule the kingdom.

Is He Dead?

By Rick Drew

This story is about the lives of two children, a brother and sister who endured unthinkable cruelty at the hands of their step father. Their journey lasted for nearly a decade in the bowels of Southern Tennessee and came to an abrupt ending in Central Florida. As you read through this book you will learn of the horrific experiences forced on these two kids and the failures of our system to protect them. You will be inspired by their will to survive and the love that they had for each other. “Is He Dead?” will take you on a journey that will affect all of your senses. Their intimate thoughts will be revealed to you as you watch their childlike plans to steal a gun and execute their step father. You will be on the edge of your seat each time their plans fail.

This story is so horrific that if it were not classified as a “true crime” story and written by the original homicide investigator it would defy belief. I am a long time fan of true crime stories and have read literally hundreds of them but I believe this one will stay with me as no other has. The story of rape, incest, child abuse, torture and murder as well as the total failure of “The System” to protect two children in not just one but TWO states is told in a straightforward, clear and crisp manner without any of the unnecessary clutter so many true crime writers insist on including.

As you read you may, as I did, wonder if someone you know who behaves in public as the step-father did occasionally is also behaving as the step-father did in private. You will wonder how many times things like this are happening next door or down the street from you. How could it have gone on for so long? How could a mother be so unfeeling? Perhaps most of all, how could these children have been so incredibly resilient as to survive?

This is not a “feel good” book. When you finish it… and you WILL finish it, probably without having been able to put it down once you start it, you will be angry, incensed, incredibly sad, horrified, and so very proud of the two kids for surviving as long as they did. Thank you, Rick Drew, for a wonderful yet horrifying book, well written and enlightening. I hope you will continue your writing and share more of your law enforcement experience with the public.

Isola di Squalo

By Heidi Peltier

On the small Mediterranean island of Isola di Squalo, an ancient legend binds the fate of the royal Delmar family directly to the peace and protection of the island. The consequence of turmoil is the return of a giant shark who ultimately attacks one of the royal family.
.
Seventeen-year-old American Dylan Murphy is thrilled to learn that a life-long dream has been fulfilled when he is accepted to a local university’s shark study program on Isola di Squalo. He has hopes of diving in particular with the Great White shark, and learning from one of the leading scientists in the field. Unfortunately, an early run-in with the island’s princess, Terra Delmar whose greatest wish is to terminate the program, lands him with the unsavory task of befriending her and convincing her to allow the scientists to stay.

Dylan scoffs at the Delmar legend until he comes face-to-face with the shark. When a life-threatening injury sends him home, he realizes he has fallen in love with the island and its queen, Terra. The return of the shark can only mean that she and her island are in danger, and though he knows he and Terra can never be together, he feels he needs to return to save them both.

This book was great! I couldn’t put it down…I just had to know what would happen next. How could it all possibly work out? How would it end? I loved the Delmars and I can’t say enough about Dylan Murphy!! This book has the ocean, sharks, scuba diving, history, mystery, action, intrigue, the struggle of youth, the love of family, standing up for what you believe and romance all interweaved into the lives of these characters, of which some you’ll love and some you’ll hate. I really look forward for more books from this author.

This story – well summarized in another review – succeeds on many levels. The primary themes – coming-of-age, first love, friendship, and man versus nature – are fleshed out well by the author. As you learn about the characters and the island where most of the adventure occurs, you are drawn in and vested in what happens by the end of the story. It is a fanciful story that is rooted in reality, and with time you begin to understand the motivation of both the sharks and the humans. Overall, I think most readers of fiction, particularly nature and outdoor settings, will be fully satisfied with this book.

Constance “Kitty” Beaucroft has had 2 seasons and 5 proposals with titles and fortunes.

Great book
I couldn’t put it down.
I nearly drowned my kindle in dish water trying to get through the last few chapter.
I was left with a question, though I think the mystery was intentional.
I don’t know how a book like this goes unnoticed, so well written and thought out with creativity and original twists and then a book like “Callie and Cayden” gets so many 5 star reviews.
But alas, this book is a hidden jewel. I would definitely recommend it. I wish I knew more about the author but I guess this way she can be almost anybody and it creates an instant connection.
Read it
You won’t be disappointed

Wow! They say that everything happens for a reason. The descriptive account of Jill’s tortuous death caused a pit in my stomach. Although, I usually don’t read books of this genre this book grabbed me from the first page until the last sentence. Jill’s mission bounces her from place to place until her murderer pays for his crimes. I enjoyed how everything was brought together in such a happy ending. Thanks to the author for the great writing.

Love Like Crazy

By Megab Squires

Relationships.
Love.
Life.

All things that can be considered—and oftentimes are—just a bit crazy.

With an alcoholic father and an absentee mother, seventeen-year old Eppie Aberdeen has learned firsthand that life’s circumstances aren’t always sunshine and roses.

So Eppie doesn’t expect the fairytale, because reality certainly isn’t one. She’s not waiting on the handsome prince with his white horse to come to her rescue. But even though she’s not waiting on it, that doesn’t stop nineteen-year-old Lincoln Ross from driving straight into her heart with his teal and white campervan and his too tall stature and perpetually goofy grin.

It’s difficult to believe in a happily ever after when a happy now is quite hard to find. But Lincoln gives Eppie hope that despite the odds, a true and unconditional love might actually be out there. A revised fairytale. A new kind of love story.

But then again, that might just be plain crazy.

Growing Up Neighbors

By Frances Hoelsema

Little Deborah Harrington stared across the street the day the Michaels family moved in. Who was this family? Would she even like them?

Nicholas Michaels hated the fact he had to move away from everything and everyone in his life, but his feelings change when he meets the Harringtons. Deborah and Nicholas become the best of friends, and as the children grow up, their friendship deepens.
But then tragedy strikes. Will this cause them to part ways? Or will it perhaps make them realize they may have stronger feelings for one another before it’s too late?

Growing up Neighbors is a sweet romance which follows Nicholas and Deborah, two neighbors, from when they first meet through their wedding. The characters are typical, believable characters and go through things such as dealing with arguing parents, divorce, getting a first job, going away to college, and the ups and downs of romance. It’s a young adult book which I think would be enjoyed by tween and early teen girls. It’s an easy read– I read it in one sitting–and the pace is steady. I like how the author ended the story.

Between Families

By Karin Mitchell

12-year-old Seffra knows that her drug-addicted mother isn’t perfect, but they’re family and love each other. Sometimes love isn’t enough, though, and when Seffra moves into an institution, a center with kids from all kinds of backgrounds, she gets a reality check and struggles to accept the control the institution exerts over her every decision.

This realistic account examines institutionalization, shame, sexual abuse, family, and identity and calls attention to the struggles that children of parents with addictions face.

Reviewed by Samantha Coville for Readers’ Favorite
Imagine being a young girl whose mother is your entire world. Now imagine if that mother was an alcoholic. You let the ridicule and shame slide off your back because you love her even though she is imperfect. Finally, imagine that it doesn’t matter how much good you see in her, you’re being sent to an institution. The world around you is lonely, cruel, abusive, and unforgiving. It’s the story that Karin Mitchell presents to us in heart wrenching detail in Between Families. And if this book teaches us anything, it’s that even the imperfect can be beautiful.
Author Karin Mitchell is obviously in love with her characters because they are genuine and heartfelt and it wrenches your soul to see them hurting. These are people you wind up caring about within the short time you have with them in these pages. They are flawed but in completely realistic ways so that you can sometimes see a bit of yourself in them. I must applaud Karin Mitchell for presenting us with a myriad of topics that many would consider taboo. The world is a dark place and someone has to speak out eventually. I’m glad it was this author because she created a wonderful story that I think many age groups would benefit from reading.

A Brush with the Moon

By Raquel Lyon

One moment is all it takes to change your life. For Sophie, it happened the day the fox attacked her.

All Sophie ever wanted was a way out. Only a few weeks ago, she was a quiet art student with an overbearing mother and no higher dream than starting university and reuniting with her BFF, but destiny intervenes in the form of a fox bite.
If being attacked by a rabid animal isn’t freaky enough, her new town has secrets. People are dying, and Sophie feels she is being watched. Then there’s the arrogant and annoyingly sexy Sebastian with his plummy accent and come-to-bed eyes creeping her out. She should stay well away, but then he does live in the spooky manor house, and curiosity is her middle name.

This book uses British spellings and contains language and sexual situations not recommended to be read by those under sixteen.

Book one in the series.
(Previously published as Foxblood:The Chase)

Holy son of a Monkey’s Uncle. This book has everything that you could ever want in a novel. There are shifters, vamps, demons, inter-dimensional travel, a rotating love triangle, and the real life of a university student complete with trials, tribulations, and parties. Yes, this book is about werewolves and vampires, but that is where the similarity to most other books of the genre ends. Lyon takes this basic premise and runs far and fast with it, giving her audience a novel that cannot be put down.

Lyon manages to work in little bits of background information throughout the story, giving her readers the pertinent information when necessary. This means that there is no long, drawn out lull where all background information is given. This is masterfully done. She also uses vivid descriptions and backgrounds to set up her story without being long winded or confusing. Even the town names are fittingly symbolic.

And let’s not forget the cast of characters that we meet in this novel. They are very well developed and suit their lives perfectly. Their interactions with each other are uniquely realistic as well. One moment you are seeing the cattiness of social cliques colliding, followed the next by true friendships, and then again by budding romantic relationships. They are the type of people that you would want to live with in real life.

When pulled all together Lyon`s novel is written in a way that YA and adult readers alike can enjoy. She never once talks down to her audience, nor does she assume that we, as readers, will piece together backgrounds that are not provided. All in all, amazingly done.

Outage

When newlyweds Abby and Rob awaken, the power is out, the neighborhood is covered in snow, and the house is freezing.

They’ll soon find out that the storm is the least of their worries.

Somewhere outside, something else is lurking. Waiting for the chance to strike…

This is one of the best and most frightening stories I have read in a long time. It was so good I read it in one day. The descriptive writing made me feel as though I was actually in the cold, dark house with the characters. I highly recommend this to anyone that is in the mood for a scary story. Just make sure you are not alone in the house and have a sweater close by and you’ll be in for a treat!

I must say I was a bit leery at first. It seemed like a lot of words were glorified and then I just wanted slap the stuffing out of Abby. Everything is happening in a huge snow storm. As it happens I’m sitting here reading this book and it’s been a snowing on and off for the last week. It’s freezing outside so I’m really feeling Abby’s coldness. But at the same time I’m thinking to myself, “Okay so the power is out and you are freaking yourself out and you own a 2 wheel drive useless car in 8 inches of snow and your best thought is to try to leave your house?” Course I grew up in this weather and come from a family of farmers that couldn’t just up and leave and we managed and found a way (I know that sounds a bit pioneerish, but it’s true, who’s gonna feed the livestock if you run away? Build a fire!) I was also thinking in one sentence she can’t hardly see a foot in front of her but yet she could make out blood pools from a distance and see the werewolf with no problem. This is minor though and I was kinda trying to look through it. I also thought she was wearing sweatpants, but then she tucks the gun in her jeans? I probably missed that she was wearing jeans but still.

Overall, being trapped in a horrible cold snow storm like this book with werewolves chasing and eating everyone is creepy. And I’ll admit I did get a chill here and there. And for all my trying to look through it, I really did enjoy it and read it in an hour and half. I’m going to buy the sequel, Outage 2: The Awakening I’m just hoping it will be published in print/paperback too, cause I need a copy for my shelf.

If it wasn’t a good werewolf story I wouldn’t have eaten up they way I did and wouldn’t be looking for the next book. So good job Mr. Piperbrook!

Emergency Exit: 2020

By Ever N. Hayes

“A gripping, action/adventure worthy of Hollywood selection and casting, with a near-future plot that should be of interest to all Americans. Full of hooks and twists, crosses genres and generations with ease. Excellent! I couldn’t put it down.” – E.

2020 – Emergency Exit (Book 1 of the 2020 Trilogy)

My wife, Sophie, lost her life four years ago. If she hadn’t, we’d both be dead now.

It’s as simple as that, but also far more complicated.

The cool October day was typical for autumn in the Midwest—a little sun, a little rain, a little wind. My parents, our kids, and their friends had gathered at my lakeside cabin to celebrate and honor Sophie…It was truly a great—stress-free—day.

And then suddenly it wasn’t.

Everything changed on the evening drive into town.
Everyone—everywhere—was dead. Animals too. There was no destruction. Just…death.
Absolute death.
The cause was unknown until we fled back to the cabin and caught the coded message on the radio—a chemical attack.

A what? In northern Minnesota? In America?
How did we not know about this? How did we survive? Was anyone else alive? Anywhere?

The extent of the contamination—the devastation—was largely unknown. The exact perpetrators were also unclear. But as terrible and incomprehensible a reality as that was, the message indicated it was about to get even worse.

An army was coming. Maybe even several.

I wanted to laugh, to cry. I wanted to do anything but face what we’d just seen. I looked at my dad, my son—Danny—and his best friend…the only ones in our group with any preparation for something like this. I glanced at the newest issue of “The Survivalist” magazine on the coffee table. I’d subscribed as a joke. It was humorous reading at the time. I might actually need it now. This was real. Far too real.

And unreal. Somehow—some way—the nine of us were supposed to try to get to Hawaii—the last safe place in America.

I did laugh then. And maybe even cried. Hawaii? From Minnesota? Glancing around the room that night, though, I knew for certain we didn’t have a choice.

The only way for any of us to live was to leave.

Sample Questions
Q1. According to the website of the Colchester tourist board during the English Civil War a large cannon was placed strategically on the wall of the castle. A shot from the parliamentary army managed to destroy the wall under the cannon and caused it to tumble to the ground. The Cavaliers (who were loyal to the King) tried to raise the cannon but could not do so as it was too heavy. What was the name of the cannon & how has it been immortalized?
Q2. Canonization is a process by which the Christian church declares a deceased person to be a saint. Now, during the canonization process of the Roman Catholic Church, a lawyer was appointed to argue against the canonization of the person. It was this person’s job to take a skeptical view of the candidate’s character, to look for holes in the evidence, to argue that any miracles attributed to the candidate were fraudulent, and so on. What was the popular name given to such a lawyer?
Q3. According In her book Fairy Tale Ending, Ursula Sautter offers this hypothesis: After the defeat of the Danes at the Battle of Bornhoved, their lands became available for colonization by the Germans. The German rulers sent out glib recruitment officers offering rich rewards to those who were willing to move to the new lands. Thousands of young adults from Lower Saxony headed west leaving their parents behind. What incident is she trying to explain?

Answers:
1. Humpty Dumpty. It is widely believed this story of the Colchester Cannon is the origin of the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty
2. Devil’s Advocate. Therefore, today a person who advocates an opposing or unpopular cause for the sake of argument or to expose it to a thorough examination is called a “Devil’s Advocate”
3. Pied Piper of Hamelin, luring away the children of the town of Hamelin

The Intergalactic Cup

By Simon Gill

On Paniathon, the National Boffball Council is looking to bolster the national squad and raise interest in the forthcoming Intergalactic Cup it is hosting. The Council members’ attention turns to Earth. As other galaxies fill their teams with the meanest, most devious and violent inhabitants, a human boy’s grossly mistaken teleportation is observed by scornful, but amused antennae.

Amazon.com Reviews: “I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. The storyline is both complex and well developed. The author did a fine job of bringing the galaxy and all of its characters to life. While fictitious and fantastical, even the aliens had characteristics and emotions with which I could relate. The lighthearted humour sprinked throughout made for an exceptionally pleasant read. I would enthusiastically recommend this book to anyone looking for an action-packed, sci-fi or sports-related tale. It kept me guessing with plenty of twists and turns right up until the very end.”

“This book was a blast to read! No hardcore science fiction, but very imaginative. I read three or four books a week, mostly science fiction, and this book was a very nice change of pace. The author did an outstanding job with the development of the main character. This book is a safe read for Jr High and up.”

Extract: “Bright rays of purple light slowly extended towards him as the cycle picked up speed. He backed himself against the wall but with nowhere left to go the first purple rays fell upon him. There was no pain, just the opposite. It felt like a thousand feathers were being run along his skin from head to foot. But this didn’t stop him screaming as he saw out of the corner of his eye the right side of his face stretching out towards the Ultrabox before disappearing into a rainbow of individual colours. As the hammering noise from his Ultrabox reached fever pitch there was a sudden swoosh as he felt his whole body sucked into the machine like a vacuum cleaner sucking up dust.”

BILLY is like any other fourteen year-old boy, with a few exceptions — he’s isolated on an alien planet inhabited by two metre tall, green bugs and being used as a marketing gimmick to boost ticket sales for the most spectacular sporting showcase in the galaxy. Then there are the gruelling training sessions against the training bots and boffball cannons. That’s before he even steps into the tank.

During the tournament, Billy and the team mates must overcome a variety of outlandish, alien teams – horned, clawed and winged, trying to roll, burrow, splurge, morph, regurgitate and bludgeon their way to victory.

“The tentacle launched the ball towards another pile close to Billy. The ball landed slap in the middle of the brown Plopper gunk. As Billy ran to close it down it immediately shifted into a new form.

The crowd reared back in disgust as a giant, evil-looking skull materialized. One of the empty eye sockets housed the ball, whilst the mouth, full of sharpened teeth, snapped open and shut like a set of those wind up teeth that chatter across the table.

The jaw looked capable of biting his arms clean off. He tried to clear this thought from his mind and remind himself that by and large he was merely dealing with a pile of goo, albeit shaped into a hideous, bodiless, flesh-eating monster.”

For Billy and the Paniathons, hard work isn’t enough – tactical changes, sacrifice, a revival of ancient, lost abilities and some human qualities are all used as the tournament progresses. This doesn’t go unnoticed by Korak and the Drakarts, who view Paniathon and more specifically, Billy, as an increasing threat to their own plans to win the trophy.

In the tank Billy has to face fierce alien boffball teams, whilst out of it, he and his team mates have to deal with sabotage, assassination attempts and betrayal as they strive to become champions of THE INTERGALACTIC CUP.

City of Blaze

By H.O. Charles

Updated 11/2015.

Fantasy Romance Epic.

The city is crumbling beneath a mountain of its own indulgences. Its army abuse the castle’s servants, confident that deadly wielders have been exterminated; wars are fought to encourage otherwise absent mortality; countless people suffer from the terrible pangs of nalka, the hunger for intimacy; and all the while its king concerns himself with choosing which of his disappointing concubines to execute next. The duty falls upon his emotionally withdrawn son, Morghiad, to restore the city’s strength and the army’s purpose. In his attempts to do so, he uncovers darker horrors and encounters a young servant who could either be his greatest ally or his greatest hindrance.

City of Blaze is a story of changing allegiances, self-control and love.
I’ve read a lot of fantasy series in my time – from the more obscure Malazan Book of the Fallen all the way up to Lord of the Rings and A Song of Ice and Fire.. and I’ve got to say this is probably one of – if not THE – best series I’ve ever read. HOC develops his plot and characters with such mastery and finesse. Their plights are well thought out and engaging. The book takes twists and turns in all the right places, and the system of “magic” is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

I literally could not put this book down. I read it in three days, the second book in two, and I read the third in four hours. I highly recommend that you take the time to AT least read the first one – after all it IS free. I guarantee you’ll be coming back for the second and third.

The quality of the literature is akin to that of a major publishing house, and to be completely honest, I didn’t know this wasn’t a popular book until after I visited the author’s website and read some of his blog posts. The sheer level of craftsmanship that he has poured into this books is simply unparalleled, and I truly believe that anyone who takes a few hours to read this series will be well rewarded by the enjoyment the story possesses.

I cannot wait until the fourth book comes out, and I hope you guys catch up in the series so you can be as excited about it as I am!

Santa Monica University: Undecided

By Mysti Jaye

Mindy Carmichael is excited to begin her freshman year at Santa Monica University. Her two best friends from high school are already students there, and she’s known since she was in middle school what she wants to major in.

What she hadn’t bargained on was discovering that her relationships would be more complicated, that her chosen field of study would turn out to be nothing like she imagined, and that in all of the chaos, her self-identity would be yanked right out from under her.

Mindy had never been a quitter, but she was quickly learning that one should never say never…

I have been excitedly awaiting the first book from Mysti Jaye for the past several months. Once Mysti Jaye started leaking the basic plot to her first installment to Santa Monica University, I knew I had to add this to my must read list. I’m a huge fan of young adult fiction and Santa Monica University Book 1 Undecided doesn’t disappoint.

The first book in this series is told from the point of view of college freshman, Mindy Carmichael. I was drawn to her character immediately! She’s fun, smart and I could completely relate to her way of thinking. It absolutely reminded me of my friends and I our first year in college. She has her two best guy friends there to guide her along the way, as well as meeting some sure to be life long friends along the way.

Overall, this was an easy, fun read. I can honestly say that I was disappointed when I finished the book only because I wasn’t ready for it to end! I cannot wait to read book two from Mysti Jaye.

I also highly recommend you checking out this author’s Facebook page. I love the way she interacts with her readers, including them on her writing journey (OfficialMystiJaye on Facebook). It’s also a fun page full of videos to “meet” the characters, find out insider information and even get the characters’ radio playlists!

As the semester progresses, Mari learns that Seth might just have a past of his own that’s literally in the past. Suddenly, Mari finds her future along with her past put into question. She’s connected to Seth far more than she ever wanted to be, and maybe he isn’t the player who she thought he was. If Mari can trust her heart enough to follow him, Seth will lead Mari on an adventure of a lifetime-and reveal family secrets she never knew existed.

Khe

By Alexes Rasevich

Immerse Yourself in an Alien World

Khe loves her simple life on a farming commune, until she discovers that her gift for pushing the crops is a death sentence. Fleeing across the treacherous wilderness, she makes her way to the city of Chimbalay, searching for the orindles who might save her. But Chimbalay has its own dangers. The Powers are there–the secret rulers who have chosen Khe to be the mother of a monstrous new race.

Neither “man in space,” SciFi, nor classical fantasy, Khe deftly blends elements of both while satisfying those wanting something new in a dystopian story. Readers looking for solid world-building and fresh and fully-realized characters will especially enjoy this book.

Khe’s story continues in Ashes and Rain. The companion novella, Gama and Hest, reveals the secret history of Khe’s world.

What readers are saying about Khe:

“…grabs you by the collar and pulls you in. By the time you are finished youare in love with the strange places and complex characters.”

“Imaginative and well-written – an entertaining, thoughtful read.”

“The story is fascinating, and the writing is full of brilliant inventions.”

“Loved this book. It’s so exciting to read a book and become immersed in a completely foreign world.”

“If you are a lover of SciFi with a dash of fantasy this is a perfect bookfor you. The characters are intriguing and well thought out. Razevichgets an A+ in creating an alien world and populating it with fascinating creatures.”

“When I first started this book I wassomewhat skeptical, as it was much different from my usual selections.But the excellent writing drew me into the story and I enjoyed it moreand more the further I read. The world and races the author developedwere very interesting, and although much different from us I had noproblem relating with the heroine. The twists and turns of the storywere unpredictable and often thought provoking. Highly recommended foranyone wanting an interesting well-written story.”

“I didn’t want it to end.”

“.. once I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. Imaginative and unusual, with amazing world-building.”

“I had high hopes for the book and they were surpassed.”

“It has been a long time since I have read such a compelling sciencefiction/fantasy novel that had me in its grip like this one.”

“I can’t remember a single science fiction book that I’ve read that didn’t have at least one human being as a part of the story.  …  The storyof Khe is spell-binding and filled with love, nature, danger, andsuccess.”

“Within just a few short chapters Alexes Razevich creates a believable butcomplex and completely alternative world which could have taken otherauthors a hundred pages or more to make the reader be so immersed insuch a unique fantasy realm. Then the adventure takes you on a journeyunlike anything I could try to compare it to (if you really forced acomparison out of me, perhaps; Frank Herbert with a more feminineangle.) ”

“The author has a great talent for drawing you into her characters and making them come alive in your
imagination. I highly recommend this book!”

“She isn’t Nancy Drew, Little Red Riding Hood, the bookish Velma orHermione. She isn’t a cheerleader, a femme fatale, a lovestruckteenager, or any other female lead or supporting role I’ve ever seen.She is herself, framed by her world and her culture, but not by ourown.”

I never heard him come after me and even as I climbed the slope and stumbled onto our shaded back lawn, I didn’t look back. It was like the day the gnomes chased me all over again, but this time I was not escaping some horrible little creatures, I was fleeing from an incredibly good-looking guy who could very well understand me completely.

Meghan Elam has been strange her entire life: her eyes have this odd habit of changing color and she sees and hears things no one else does. When the visions and voices in her head start to get worse, she is convinced that her parents will want to drag her off to another psychiatrist. That is, until the mysterious Cade MacRoich shows up out of nowhere with an explanation of his own.

Estelle Caldwell caused a war with her birth.
She didn’t find out until her eighteenth birthday. She was normal, or so she thought. She had regular, divorced parents that she still kept in touch, and a trio of best friends that had a bond so strong, they gave her a meaning to existence.

When her life started to unravel the truth, it started with her grandfather, Larry, giving her a special necklace the night before her birthday. Not only did it start changing her, but it showed her the truth of her past in her dreams that she couldn’t quite grasp, or accept.

I wanted normalcy. I wanted my life to be my own.

the people I love that I have to leave.

Will our first and last kiss be one and the same?

Vampires Rule

By Kasi Blake

They don’t call him Jackpot for nothing.

Jack was barely seventeen when a werewolf slaughtered his parents and ripped his throat out. Lucky for him, there were vampires nearby. Summer liked him on sight, so she infected him and gave him new life as a vampire. His only remaining family, a younger brother, buried him and tried to move on. Jack couldn’t. His body and heart remained frozen in time, and that’s why he does it, why he takes a trip home every year. Feeling nostalgic, he walks through the house and touches his former possessions. Then he visits the cemetery and stares down at an empty grave with his name on it. This has been Jack’s life for ten years… but this year something incredible happens.

Jack is at the cemetery when he sees a beautiful girl about to get killed by a werewolf. Misunderstanding the situation, he jumps in to save her and is wounded. He watches in awe as she kills the werewolf with a gentle touch. This is Silver, THE werewolf hunter, and she didn’t need his help but still appreciates it. Unfortunately for Jack, a single scratch from a werewolf can kill a vampire. As far as he knows, only a few have survived it.

And that is why Jack is stunned to wake up the next morning. The second thing to shock him is the realization that his fangs are gone. Sunlight touches his face for the first time in a decade. He has a second chance to live. This is a miracle.

Not so fast, Jack. He tries to return to his old life, but the people around him won’t let him pretend to be normal when the supernatural is everywhere. His brother is a hunter, the English teacher is a werewolf, and his new girlfriend can suck the souls of werewolves right out of them. Scary, huh? If he was still a vampire, he might be worried.

His brother Billy is now older than him and wants to tell him what to do. This does not sit well with Jack. His vampire friends refuse to leave town without him. They want to turn him into a vampire again. Not going to happen. Not if Jack has any say in the matter. Being a vampire sucked. Sorry. No other word for it.

Every time he starts to feel normal, something happens.

Vampires Rule is an action-packed teen paranormal fantasy with wraiths, vampires, and a faerie. This is the first book in the series.

Other books in the Rule Series include Werewolves Rule, Shifters Rule, Wizards Rule and Mortals Rule (which will be out some time in the year 2015).

During the slaughter, Rhett Carter’s foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead.

Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.

But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.

And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

Satellite

By Lee Davidson

Grant Bradley has just one little thing standing in the way of his happiness: Death.

Grant just learned he was never meant to survive cancer or live happily ever after with his fiancée, Tate; he was destined to be a Satellite before he was born. Needless to say, being a glorified guardian angel for someone he doesn’t know is as unnerving as the Utopian surroundings of Progression. To make matters worse, Grant’s mentor, Willow, has as many hokey comments as she has tattoos and an annoying habit of withholding pertinent information.

Grant, wanting nothing more than to be with Tate, refuses to believe this is his destiny. So when the word spreads about how quickly he is excelling, Grant chalks it up to Willow’s merciless training. She tries to kill him, after all—or whatever the equivalent of death after death is. Grant can’t deny that, physically, he seems to be advancing much faster than his peers, but the secrets he’s keeping prove otherwise. One secret in particular, the most dangerous, must stay hidden at all costs; if anyone discovers he’s found a way back to Tate, his chances of protecting her will be destroyed. Maintaining this connection will cost Grant more than he could ever imagine.

Satellite: The Satellite Trilogy, Part I, is written in a style that appeals to young men and women alike. The 2012 ABNA calls this fantasy “captivating” and “an epic love story.” Inspired by the idea that everything happens for a reason and that even the most tragic of deaths can be instrumental in forming the future of the living, this novel delivers surprising depth behind its charming exterior. Grant’s epic journey is full of plot twists, witty banter, fantastic new worlds, and unrequited love that will keep readers engaged from cover to cover.

Shelve Under C: A Tale of Used Books and Cats

By Jenny Kalahar

A novel for everyone, Shelve Under C is a big, leaning stack of humor, heart, stray cat hairs, old book dust, mystery, family drama, longing and hope.

Used bookshops often have a cat or two roaming the aisles, sleeping on the shelves, or sleeping on the customers. Here is a novel all about one bookshop and its resident cats, Stomper and Buglit; and about Kris, a 12-year-old boy who apprentices in the shop. Kris is a little bit like the cats: he’s a foster child getting used to a new family, and the cats are being fostered in the bookshop for the local shelter. Stomper and Buglit are a little bit like Kris: they get into trouble, have some wild adventures, and find out just what being part of a family really means.

Unlike some novels that have a bookstore setting, Shelve Under C has the real spirit of the store, its owners, its apprentice, its customers and, especially, its cats as the beating heart of this fuzzy beast. It’s full of wonderful characters, a wild storm, a doggy bucking bronco, catnip capers, an almost-deadly chicken salad sandwich, and . . . books! No need to knock — the door is open. So come on in, grab something to read, and get comfy on the big, red sofa.

The last person seventeen-year-old Eleanor Livingston wants to see on the elevator—let alone get stuck with—is her ex-boyfriend Travis, the guy she’s been avoiding for five months.

Plagued with the belief that when she speaks the truth, bad things happen, Elly hasn’t told Trav anything. Not why she broke up with him and cut off all contact. Not what happened the day her father returned from his deployment to Afghanistan. And certainly not that she misses him and still thinks about him everyday.

But with nowhere to hide and Travis so close it hurts, Elly’s worried she won’t be able to contain her secrets for long. She’s terrified of finally revealing the truth, because she can’t bear to watch a tragedy befall the boy she still loves.

Samantha Jean Haggert is a beautiful twelve-year-old girl, but no one knows it. All they see is an awkward boy in a baseball cap and baggy pants. Sam’s not thrilled with the idea of hiding her identity, but it’s all part of her brother’s plan to keep Sam safe from male attention and hidden from the law. 15-year-old Jacob will stop at nothing to protect his sister, including concealing the death of the one person who should have protected them in the first place–their mother.

Sam and Jacob try to outrun their past by stealing the family car and traveling from West Virginia to Arizona, but the adult world proves mighty difficult to navigate, especially for two kids on their own. Trusting adults has never been an option; no adult has ever given them a good reason. But when Sam meets “Jesus”–who smells an awful lot like a horse–in the park, life takes a different turn. He saved her once, and may be willing to save Sam and her brother again, if only they admit what took place that fateful day in West Virginia. The problem?

The Treemakers

By Christina L. Rozelle

Stay on guard. Be aware of your surroundings. Notice the nuances. Cover your tracks. Always be prepared. Question everything. This is how you stay alive, Joy. And this is how you keep the ones you love alive.

Sixteen-year-old Joy Montgomery, daughter of Zephyr the Magnificent, the great magician, can only reminisce of better times. Before the Superiors. Before the uprisings. Long ago. Before the dying Earth ripped the family she loved away from her.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

This is the first book in the Treemakers Trilogy. This series is intended for mature YA audiences, as there are certain mature themes (abuse, character deaths, etc.,) which may be too emotionally intense for younger readers. The second book in the Treemakers Trilogy, “The Soultakers,” will release on December 3rd, 2015.

Their lives are based in a prison inside of their own home. Their parents do not care. There are bullies everywhere. Will these twins be able to save each other and others from such a terrible magical madness?

A thoughtful blend of adventure, peril and timely reflection A Twin’s Redemption has much to commend it. Deserving of a place on your reading list, it is definitely recommended. – Book Viral

A Twin’s Redemption is an engaging book. I was immediately caught up in the plot from the very first chapter. I actually read the book in one sitting! I strongly felt every emotion that the twin girls experienced.- Valerie Rouse (Reader’s Favourite)
A Twin’s Redemption by Yassy F is a sad and very disheartening story of two girls and their struggle against the endless stream of wickedness in their lives. The very well portrayed contrast between Mildred and Angelica’s characters added an extra layer of depth to the story. It was an amazing story, especially in the beginning. – Faridah Nassozi (Reader’s Favourite

I enjoy reading books with a paranormal twist to them and especially those that are grounded in common belief. In A Twin’s Redemption the author uses the special connection often experienced between twins to develop a strong story which benefits from a cleverly constructed plot and good writing. I found it to be a very enjoyable read.- Peter (Goodreads)

The Victor’s Heritage

By Anthony Kaplan

Corrag is a Democravian teenager, smart, funny and bold. Maybe too bold.

It is 2045. America has been shattered into two countries. Democravia and the Republican Homeland. Peace between the two continental rivals is always fragile.

An ill-fated escapade with her boyfriend launches Corrag on a journey of revolutionary impact, driving her to exile in the Nenkaja from which there is no escape. Will she ever find a place for herself in a society dominated by the Augment?

The Victor’s Heritage, Book Two of the Jonah Trilogy, is a science-fiction thriller, a roller coaster of a book.

The Augment, touted by those in power to be the perfect solution for the greater good. Everyone is urged to receive it, embrace it and be controlled by it, but there are always those who would rather die than be controlled, those who see it for what it is, evil. The year is 2045 and America is now two countries, balancing on a thin truce that could be shattered at any minute and Corrag becomes a free thinking, high spirited female who made one error that will catapult her into the world of revolution and exile, with little hope of freedom, unless she takes her future into her own hands.

Follow Corrag as she sees her dystopian world through eyes that have been opened to different truths and different realities as she weaves her way through the maze of life and survival.

The Victor’s Heritage by Anthony Caplan is non-stop action, adventure and completely spell-binding reading from start to finish. Mr. Caplan has woven a tale that sometimes parallels contemporary events, although set in a futuristic world. We often see teens as rebellious, as they seek to forge their own path, but is that always so terrible? Corrag is one such teen who has been forced into a world she is ill-prepared for and yet is ready to embrace new ideas and concepts far from the standard “party” lines. Mr. Caplan captures the force of youth, of coming of age, of new awareness and puts it all together into a tale that never lets up!

Once again, he writes with a skilled hand and brilliant detail, bring every character and scene to life as the tension stays taut and thought-provoking while never veering off from being 100% entertaining, start to finish! A definite MUST READ, not matter your age!

Sliding Beneath the Surface

By Doug Dillon

In America’s oldest and most haunted city, St. Augustine, Florida, teenager Jeff Golden is in trouble. Horrible dreams won’t let him sleep, and he is up to his eyeballs in terrifying, paranormal experiences.

Finally, Jeff turns to his girlfriend Carla, and Lobo, the mysterious Native American shaman, for help. But what he discovers is a lot more than he bargained for.

A ghostly presence linked to a local historic cemetery is not only threatening Jeff’s sanity but his life as well. And before he knows what’s happening, Jeff finds both himself and Carla pulled into one of the nastiest and most bloody events in Florida history. It is a place from which they may never escape.

Ancient weapons that still kill, dead cats that walk, dreams of dying, and out of body experiences; they are all here in Doug Dillon’s Sliding Beneath the Surface shrouded in a cold fog of mystery. But there is more – much more. This is a frightening story about Jeff Golden, a self-pitying and rebellious teen-age boy who is being attacked by ghosts and deadly entities. What is happening? He reluctantly accepts help from Carla, a friend, and Lobo, a Native American Shaman with mystical powers. Together they work to uncover the truth and to keep Jeff from an imminent deadly threat. The fast-paced action quickly pushes the reader into the happenings – and the danger. As Jeff, and ultimately Carla, move between the present and a deadly event from the past where they both could be killed, Jeff finally comes of age. The setting – St Augustine Florida, the oldest city in the United States – is an inspired location for this heart thumping mystery. The old Spanish fort, the curling mists that exude from Matanzas bay, the old cemetery with the pyramids that burn, the historic buildings and the unwitting tourists that walk in and out of the tale, all provide just the right background for this marvelous story. I thoroughly enjoyed Sliding Beneath the Surface and predict the book will be a big seller. Charles R. “Chuck” Dowling Author: To Keep Our Honor Clean The Mad Dogs.

The Gifting

By K.E. Ganshert

“If science is right, then I am crazy. And crazy is dangerous.”

In a world where nothing supernatural exists, Tess Eckhart is positive she’s going crazy. After her complete freakout at a high school party, her family is too. So much that they pack their bags and move across the country, next to a nationally-renowned facility for the mentally ill.

Tess is determined to fit in at her new school, despite the whispers and stares. But when it comes to Luka Williams, a reluctantly popular boy in her class, she’s unused to a stare that intense. Then the headaches start, and the seemingly prophetic dreams that haunt her at night. As Tess tries harder to hide them, she becomes increasingly convinced that Luka knows something—that he might somehow be responsible.

But what if she’s wrong? What if Luka Williams is the only thing separating her from a madness too terrifying to fathom?

The Grimm Chronicles, Vol. 2

For 200 years, the hero’s magic pen has been passed on from generation to generation. The newest hero is Alice Goodenough, an 18-year-old junior from Washington High School. While her friends spent their summer working and having fun, Alice found herself doing battle with creatures most human beings don’t even realize exist. A giant snake. A blood-sucking prince. A terrifying half-man, half-hedgehog. Dastardly dwarfs intent on mind-controlling everyone who uses a cell phone.

Now, senior year has begun. With it comes a new challenge at school, where bullies have grown bolder and classes more challenging. As if that’s not enough, Alice must face off against a collection of Corrupted who all share a terrible secret, one that might awaken a creature capable of doing untold damage. To uncover the secret, Alice will have to face off against a man-eating lizard, a bloodthirsty sea captain, and a mysterious wizard who can see into the future …

This book contains the following episodes:

Episode Four: The Orphanage of Doom

After facing off with the dreaded dwarf named Sam Grayle, Alice finds her dreams plagued by two separate visions. In one, she’s floating through a massive mansion filled with old, dusty furniture and drafty windows. Shadows dance across the wall. Children cry out in terror. A mysterious animal growl echoes through the halls.

In her second dream, a terrible smoke-like creature roams the streets of Minneapolis, feeding off human victims while it plots a terrible revenge that threatens to have far-reaching consequences. Alice must decide which dream to pursue: does she foil the smoke-creature’s plot or try to rescue the children from an unseen evil?

Episode five: Blood and Thunder

Upon making a surprising discovery in a Corrupted’s lair, Alice finds herself torn between her responsibilities as the hero and her desire to live a normal life. She’s been granted a unique opportunity to leave the entire world of the hero behind. But before she can make her ultimate
choice, her nightmares return …

A ship is coming. And aboard that ship is one of the most terrifying Corrupted creatures Alice has faced yet. In order to face her foe, Alice will have to do without the help of her scorned friend, Br’er Rabbit.

At school, a miraculous recovery by the star of the baseball team prompts more questions, all of them bringing Alice back to that fateful encounter at the orphanage of doom. To make matters worse, a school bully has taken his terrorizing too far, a friend is in trouble, and the mysterious ship in Alice’s nightmare holds a terrible secret …

Episode six: The Order of the Golden Dragon

Three mysterious golden coins. What is their purpose? Alice must find out, and in order to do so, she will need to use all of the skills she’s learned so far. She cannot fail. Failure means a fate worse than death.

Agnim the Mage haunts her dreams, using his terrible black magic to plague Alice with nightmares. Once a character in the Grimms’ fairy tales, his magical powers have stronger and stronger the more Corrupted he has become. He has foreseen a cataclysmic event that could mean the end of the world, and only the hero stands in his way. But in order to stop him, Alice will have to find him. And soon. Before Agnim steals her sanity and destroys her mind.

Agnim knows her weakness. He knows her fears. He controls her dreams. He is the most dangerous Corrupted Alice has ever faced. There is no guarantee she can defeat him.

In these trying times, only one thing is certain:

The Golden Dragon will awaken.

“I felt love, excitement, respect and a ton of heartbreak…” – AmandaNicoleBooks

I know many things. What I am capable of, what I will change, what I want to become. But there is one thing I’ll never know.

Being the Tatuma of our world, the next to rule, should have given me a privileged life. One full of friends, love and happiness. If my mother didn’t hate me, that is. Instead, she has kept me veiled from birth, turning the possibility of this distant dream into a living nightmare.

Shunned by the court, abused from childhood, I am trapped within this material barrier and will never know my own face. Only two friends and a determination to become Tatum keep me sane.

I’m unaware everything in my life is about to change when the peace delegate arrives from the savage world of Glacium. Hidden agendas, past secrets and my struggle to stay alive–while still becoming the person I want to be–careen wildly out of control.

Join Olina in this coming-of-age fantasy.

I AM SLEEPLESS: Sim 299

By Johan Twiss

While the others slept, Aidan spent hours each night running sim after sim. Although he was only a twelve-year cadet, he had completed more simulations than any prime— ever.

“You are setting history,” General Estrago told him. “No one has ever made it to the current simulation you are attempting. The other Masters and I are eager to see what comes next.”

So was Aidan.

Book Synopsis:
The planet Ethos is at war with a mysterious enemy known as the Splicers. Their only successful defense is the Prime Initiative. All newborns with the compatible genetic code are taken from their families and injected with the Prime Stimulus. Each child that survives the stimulus develops an extraordinary ability and is conscripted into the military for training.

After turning twelve, Aidan is moved to the upper-class at the Mount Fegorio training complex. His special gifts allow him unprecedented success in the virtual training simulations, advancing him further than any prime cadet in history. No one knows what lies after sim 299, not even Director Tuskin, the ruthless and reclusive ruler of their planet. But something, or someone, has been guiding Aidan there. If he can pass the final tests, he may discover the key to ending the Splicer War.

—-

From the imaginative mind of debut author Johan Twiss, I AM SLEEPLESS: Sim 299 is an extraordinary space fiction adventure series that will delight readers of all ages. I AM SLEEPLESS has a clean read rating with the perfect mix of adventure, humor, and mystery in a SciFi Fantasy world that will keep you turning pages through the night.

Clean Rating:
There are no scenes with sex, drugs, graphic violence or typical “earth” swearing in this novel. There are numerous fight scenes and action sequences where people are injured and/or die, but it is not graphic and takes place in a virtual simulation. Swear words are fitting to the fictional world of Ethos, such as Tuskin’s Fury, Batmonkeys, Holy Hippophants, etc… There are budding romances with kissing involved. There are suspenseful situations with monster alien creatures, fitting of the science fiction genre, and an overall thematic undertone of good v. evil that is suitable for tweens, teens and young adults.

Gravity

By Melissa West

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek. Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know–especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

“Gravity will grasp readers tightly, with an ingenious storyline and sharp dialogue. West’s extraterrestrials are unlike anything sci-fi fans have seen.”

Our Wild and Precious Lives

By A.G. Russo

The Midwest Book Review
“A novel set in 1960 Cold War Germany doesn’t sound like an auspicious beginning for a young adult read; nor do the protagonists, who are teenage Army brats used to relying on one another for support and companionship. But an adult-sounding setting and circumstances is exactly what sets Our Wild and Precious Lives apart from other young adult reads and makes it a vivid and different story that will reach into adult circles even as it remains firmly rooted in the perceptions, experiences, and reactions of teenagers. …Our Wild and Precious Lives…is, in itself, a wild and precious read…”
D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer

Sassy Peach Reads
“…my first impression was that this was going to be mostly a history book disguised as a YA novel. But the book ends up in a far different and better place…There are so many levels to this book, and the story is incredible. But what is important to know is that it starts off kind of slow and there’s a lot of time spent setting up Jim’s character (like all of chapter twelve which I enjoyed but could live without), when I feel like the beyond-Notebook-sadness-level ending could have used more ink. Speaking of the end, I cried for probably half an hour after I finished this book. I didn’t see the end coming at all and all of the relationships and interactions that seemed pointless earlier on really came full circle and took me on a seriously emotional rollercoaster. This is one of those books that someone tries to tell you about, fails, gives up, and then says trust me just read it. So that’s what I’m saying to you, trust me just read it!”
Charlotte, Guest Blogger

In 1960 Cold War Germany, Tom and Melly McCarron, teenage Army brats, contend with adolescence on a small American base near Bavaria, where their father, a decorated war veteran, begins a three-year tour of duty. As tensions in Berlin rise between the Allies and the Soviets, and threaten to bring about World War III, the base teenagers forge bonds of loyalty and love stronger than any of the adults understand.

Leaving New York on a night flight to Germany, the quiet, thoughtful Tom, and feisty, emotional Melly, are apprehensive about life in a foreign land. While they will attend the American high school in Würzburg, brother and sister realize they are the only stability each has had in their young lives. They also leave behind the sole adult they came to trust, their Aunt Deeny, a librarian who introduced them long ago to a way to cope with life’s ups and downs—reading and books.

Confronting the overwhelming challenges of making new friends, adjusting to a foreign environment, and enrolling in yet another school, they also must endure their abusive father and moody war bride mother. But they are not fully aware of how their father’s wartime experiences and sacrifices have left him scarred. Relying on their inner strength and resilience, they navigate the boundaries of military dependents—American teenagers with the same needs, yearnings and heartbreak as any of their generation.

The First Book of Demons

By Raquel Dove

Alexandra is just trying to make it through high school when her life suddenly becomes a hot mess. After what was supposed to be a peaceful camping trip with friends has her waking up in another world filled with handsome demons and fantastical creatures, Alex does everything she can to get back to some semblance of normalcy.

But when feelings start to develop for Lord Balthazar, the demon holding her captive, she has a hard time finding the desire to return home.

This book was awesome. Everything about this book made me what more. I had a hard time in the beginning while father and son argued about taking a mate and I found myself looking for a reason not to scream what ever happened to “mating” for love!?! When the only way to unlock powers is a knife to the chest, I wanted to cry “what happens when she just dies!!!”

Then we enter into a totally alternate universe run by Lord Sultans that are killed in their sleep then to be replaced by the oldest prince that has a totally different view of how the kingdom should be run, some in a good way but others in a not so good way. Forcing a sibling to marry two people that the oldest doesn’t desire is no way for an older brother to behave. The chemistry between Belthazar and Alexandra is unmistakable after only a few meetings but neither party wants to admit the attraction for the other, which leads to several “girl” kidnappings that are supposed to be taken as a rescue mission. Then here comes the knight in demon armor that takes back Alexandra only to in short time periods lose her once again to another who wants to rule the kingdom.

The Colonel’s Daughter

By Douglas Hirt

Kit finds himself on a hunt for a beautiful kidnapped young lady…and it takes him into the jaws of hell. He’ll rescue her, or die trying. The legendary Christopher “”Kit”” Carson, a skilled marksman, trapper, and hunter, finds himself involved in a manhunt when the beautiful daughter of a Missouri colonel is kidnapped, and he becomes determined to find her at any cost. Don’t miss this great action adventure by America’s finest, Douglas Hirt.

This was a great read if you enjoy Westerns and pioneer adventures.

It followed the exploits of the famous Kit Carson, an early explorer and mountain man of 1800-1865. The incident described occurred in the 1820’s-1830’s. Kit Carson rescued a white woman who had been kidnapped and dragged off to the Indian Territories . In real life, I believe Kit Carson eventually married the woman he rescued. However, this book is fiction although it is based on the real life exploits of a real person.

From a story point of view the book held my interest from start to finish and I can strongly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the period.

From a technical point of view, there were some typos. Most were obvious and were minimally disruptive. In at least one case, the errors were sufficient to disrupt understanding. While the writing itself was excellent, there were the occasional points where the use of an editor would have been helpful. Generally, unless you are easily disturbed, the writing style and quality will be enjoyable.

The one issue I did have is that the period this is occurring in is unclear (the dates above are based on the real life Kit Carson rather than the book). This was a period of massive change (for example in 1812 the standard long arm was an unrifled flintlock while by 1865 the standard was a breech-loaded, rifled, rimfire cartridge with percusion cap being phased out.) The author did not appear to have a firm handle on the period in question or at least failed to communicate it properly. As a result, I had problems visualizing the period and the available weaponry.

The Grimm Chronicles, Vol. 1

200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world. Literally.

Now the characters of the Grimms’ stories walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them.

For 18-year-old Alice Goodenough, that means taking precious time off from her summer vacation. In addition to volunteering at the local library, Alice must stop the Corrupted who are now actively hunting her down. With the help of her magic pen and her trusty rabbit friend, the world has suddenly gotten a lot more complex. The Corrupted are everywhere, and only Alice can see them for what they truly are.

This book contains the first 3 episodes of the critically acclaimed series:

Episode 1: Prince Charming Must Die!

Alice Goodenough has been chosen to be the new hero, but not before undergoing a test to see if she’s worthy. Shaken, confused, Alice discovers that her weapon is a magic fountain pen and her ammunition is her mind: whatever she can draw, she can create. With the help of a rabbit friend, Alice must learn the ways of the hero and discover the truth about her frightening dreams: who is the terrible creature feeding on its victims at night?

Episode 2: Happily Never After

Alice’s nightmares have begun to grow more real. Terrifying man-eating rats are plaguing the city of Chicago, and it’s up to Alice to figure out a way to stop them. But before she can do that, she’ll have to face off with an even more dangerous enemy sent to kill her.

An enemy that has killed heroes before …

Episode 3: Revenge of the Castle Cats

After being rushed to the hospital, Alice Goodenough finds herself trapped in the worst dream imaginable: a horrible monster is hunting in the darkness, searching for its next victim: Alice. It will stop at nothing to kill her.

And that’s not the worst of it. All across the city, people are growing more addicted to Castle Cats, a smartphone game created by Grayle Incorporated. And it’s not just a game. The more you play, the more it controls you. Soon, Alice learns that the dwarfs who run Grayle Incorporated are watching her everywhere she goes, using human beings to spy on her.

There must be a confrontation. Sam Grayle and his brothers have to be stopped. And Alice is going to need help.

Summer of my Secret Angel

By Anna Katmore

Love was never in his plan… And neither in hers.

It isn’t nicking an expensive watch or a diamond bracelet that lands streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It’s a darn sweater. When a judge decides she has to return to her terminally ill mother, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago, Jona finds herself doing time through charity work on her estranged aunt’s vineyard in France.

Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets—until she meets Julian, her mother’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she’s ever dreamed of—but she’s not about to let him know that. Because even though he’s fast becoming Jona’s best friend, he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end…

So when the first week in her new home is over, Jona asks herself two things: One, how did she let herself end up in Julian’s arms after all? And two, how the hell did he awaken her mother from the dead?

Donbridge: The Ring of Lazarus

By R.D. Vincent

An exciting tale of courage, mystery and suspense surrounding the fabled town of Donbridge. There are unexplained deaths and all may be the work of a hooded figure or something far more sinister, one thing is for sure: the graves don’t stay closed for long in Donbridge.

I met R.D. Vincent at Indiepalooza where I was speaking in Houston, Texas recently and when he gave me his slim book, I said I would read it. I did indeed and whipping through the pages fast and furious. Nothing I have read recently was quite like this little novella but you will love the suspense and storytelling, it’s a winner. I loved it so much I am going to make it a Pulpwood Queen OFFICIAL Book Club Selection in 2016, so that is five diamonds in my Pulpwood Queen TIARA. Think of it as an American fairy tale, our Once Upon a Time, and made me recall just exactly why I loved my grandparents stories. They were mysterious, sometimes really scary, but magically mesmerizing. You are in for a treat so on this Halloween eve, don’t delay, read!

Book One of the bestselling Lux series

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Off the Grid: Book One

By E.N. McNamara

When Jamie Keller’s father is killed in Iraq by a roadside bomb, her mother decides to combat the financial and emotional stress by moving the family from Hamilton, Ohio to the rural town of Promise, Oregon.

Fourteen-year-old Jamie narrates the tale of the journey, intermingling descriptions of family dynamics with her own personal philosophy of life.
The victims of Jamie’s scrutiny include: older sister Jenny, who listens to praise music and wears a WWJD bracelet; younger brother Jake, contained and brainy, with know-it-all tendencies; and little sister Jana, lover of animals and sometimes the comic relief.

In Reno, Nevada, the mystery begins when Jamie’s mother fails to pick the kids up at the mall as had been previously arranged.

After waiting for hours in the blazing heat, brother Jake finally goes in search of his mom only to return with an amazing story. He has located the car, and everything in it is intact (including the family’s pet cats), but Mrs. Keller is nowhere to be found. Intensive searching proves futile. Their mother has vanished!

Nervous about becoming wards of the state of Nevada, and fearful of being put in separate foster homes, the Keller kids decide to avoid authority, choosing instead to take the gamble, and continue on to Promise, Oregon.
On the way into town, a giant JESUS banner is the first sign that Promise is in a bible belt. Jenny is thrilled, Jamie, not so.

Upon arriving at the ranch, the Kellers are met with further disappointment when they discover that the ‘ranch’ is nothing more than an old trailer, situated off the grid. Jake is in his element, with the challenge of solar panels, batteries and generators, but the girls are far from enchanted.

War, religion, world peace, inner peace, dealing with financial stress and self sufficiency are some of the key topics in this often humorous story story.

Off the Grid is a contemporary novelette directed at a young teen audience but enjoyed by all ages.

Howard Pickman has a terrible secret. If anyone finds out, it will mean death for everyone he loves. Even worse, he’s the new kid at the most abysmal high school in America. All Howard wants to do is remain anonymous, but being a teenager can be dangerous. He’ll have to fight true monsters in order to survive.

“A classic coming of age tale is in the best tradition of Mark Twain, Stephen King, and The Sex Pistols.”

  1. “A gloriously macabre young-adult tale about the difficulties of being a teenage ghoul in the 1970s. Once readers dig up this clever supernatural story, they likely won’t want to put it down.” – KIRKUS REVIEWS
  2. “Anyone wanting a refreshing story with a young voice full of humor and teenage angst, yet with all the Gothic trappings that have kept the genre popular for over two centuries, give American Ghoul a try! – SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER
  3. “I admire Morton’s story-telling ability, his macabre descriptions and his dark treatment of the high school experience from a teenager with a terrible secret. There were moments that chilled me to the bone, but kept me turning the pages to follow Howard’s journey from outsider to anti-hero.” – JACKSONVILLE NAVIGATOR

Wow, I really loved Barking Madness!  I thought it was well-written (a few minor editing things but nothing too major) and kept my attention from beginning to end – no easy feat considering the epic length of this novel!  There seems to be something of almost everything… danger, mystery, thriller, paranormal, action, romance, teen angst….It wasn’t cliché or predictable, and I thought for the most part the pacing and prose was solid. (A bit of a slow start, but then it picks up…) Probably best suited for the 16 and over crowd, and although it’s technically a YA (young-adult) book, I can see older adults enjoying this as well.

SLEEPY HOLLOW: Rise Headless and Ride

By Richard Gleaves

JASON CRANE just turned seventeen years old.

He’s a STAR WARS fan and a history geek. He doesn’t believe in ghosts or the afterlife. He doesn’t believe in psychic powers or tarot cards. He doesn’t believe in the Headless Horseman.

But Sleepy Hollow will change all that. Because Jason Crane has a heritage to claim. Jason Crane has a Gift to discover. And Jason Crane has an old enemy who will RISE HEADLESS AND RIDE.

For anyone looking for the next Harry Potter or Hunger Games, look no further. Rise Headless and Ride, the first installment of the Jason Crane series, is an excellently written page turner that will appeal to both young adults and, well, not so young adults. Jason Crane is the last descendant of the legendary Ichabod Crane, of Washington Irving’s classic Legend of Sleepy Hollow. When his grandmother decides on a whim to relocate to modern day Sleepy Hollow, Jason’s ancestry is called into play. I won’t give anything away, as I don’t want to spoil any of the many surprises, but author Richard Gleaves immerses himself in classic American ghost lore while adding a contemporary twist to the tradition. In addition, every location mentioned in the story is a real place that can be visited in the real Sleepy Hollow. So it also serves as a kind of ghostly travelogue for anyone who cares to visit the town.

I can’t recommend this highly enough. I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. If there is any justice, the Jason Crane series will be the next big thing. I’m already imagining the cast of the inevitable film version!
