Rylie, a typical teenager distraught about her parents divorce and rebellious against their decision to protect her from the evil of the process, is forced to attend a summer camp.

Shy and timid, she hides in the pages of her journal where she feels protected in a cocoon away from the mean girls who care more about fashion and bullying.

 

Safe that it is until she is attacked in the woods by an enstranged wild animal and her memory lost of the attack or how she made it back to the camp safely.

Meeting Seth a boy supposedly from the other camp that is forbidden, Rylie soon learns that she only has three months to keep from changing into the evil creature that has changed her life forever.

After the death of her father, will her love for Seth and for being human be enough reason for her to fight the change? Or will she sacrifice herself to save the campers and the boy she loves?

S. M. Reine creates a unique love story that blossoms from the horrific truth of an ancient legend. She keeps you on the edge of your seat and glued to what the characters will do next.

Its hard to find a story that captivates me long enough to finish reading it in a couple of days. I love this first novel in the Seasons of the Moon series and l am looking forward to reading the next chapter in Rylie’s story.

SUNBORN RISING – Beneath The Fall

Barra inherits her father’s passion for exploring and discovering new territories.  After discovering her father’s journals her passion is ignited and she will go so far as to disobey her mother to embark on a journey, the same journey that took her father.

But her love for her family and friends pushes her to save their tree from the black rot that is slowly creeping upon them and threatening to destroy their lives.  She and her two best friends adventure on a new quest through the floating tree-scape of Cerulean desperate to find a way to save them all.

Aaron Safronoff depicts a fantasy tale into a world that has forgotten their past but more importantly forgotten that there are bigger worlds outside of their tree.  The characters and the settings are well developed so much so that they will drag you into their realm and fill your mind with colorful illustrations as you watch your imagination twist and turn the story into a movie you will never forget.

I recommend Sunborn Rising – Beneath the Fall to YA Fantasy readers who are looking for something different and refreshing from the normal dragons and magic.

CHAOTIC BRILLANCE!

Eve is in constant turmoil between her father’s loving motivations and her mother’s not-so-loving expectations.  Her constant failures eat away at her self esteem while she becomes a rope in the game of Tug-Of-War between her parents.

When Eve’s mother pushes her to do the ‘unthinkable’ all hell breaks loose, giving her the confidence to decide that she no longer needs Life’s false motherly attention.  Giving in to her true nature with a little help from Destiny, Eve strips her mother from Life.

Death’s true love becoming evident, she promotes the one sister that never showed her a millisecond of affection.  Maybe the Fates were right, Life and Death shouldn’t have tempted them and had a daughter.

I was lucky enough to receive this story as a free download and I am thrilled to have enjoyed the unique tale of love and hate.  Patti Larsen is one of my favorite young adult authors and she never disappoints. Ms. Larsen has a skill of creating worlds and characters that collide and combust into a story that pulls you in like vacuum-sucking vortex.

I wish had ten thumbs to hold up for the first book in a new series that is truly to become my new reading addiction.

 

Intriguing with its Unique Quality!!!

Portrait of a sexy male model as ancient warrior with sword and helmet

The Pearl Savage #1 Alpha Warrior of the Band by Tamara Rose Blodgett

Our future is never predetermined.  Our lives almost never turn out the way we expected them too.  Clara Williamson realized this when her world of sphere-dwelling and continuous abuse changed.

America suffers a dark gloomy apocalyptic event which tosses them into the past of their own history mixed with micro splashes of the future.  Citizens dwell in spheres created one hundred forty years prior, designed to protect them from the fatal results of the cataclysmic events that occured.

Society has reverted to medieval times with Kings, Queens, and a high court.  Clara, princess and royalty faces torment and abuse everyday.  With arranged marriages, she is to be forced to marry a tyrant who physcially tortures and threatens to do worse, all while her mother watches and approves.

With the help of her closest friends as well as citizens who hope for a better future, she escapes the sphere, only to be taken by savages.

Clara faces danger and fear of the unknown when she discovers the outside was so much more than what they were taught all their lives.  Secrets reveal themselves like petals of a flower slowly opening.

With newly opened eyes and heart, Clara discovers that the outside people are not savages afterall and her traumatic experience was really a blessing in disguise.

I have to say that I downloaded this book on my kindle app, only because it was free at the time.  That was four years ago.  I really wish I had read it sooner because I didn’t want to stop.  My heart went out to Clara and the abuse and torment she endured.  Now there are several books in this series and I can’t wait to get my hands on book two.

I recommend this dark paranormal fantasy to anyone who is interested is something unique and out of the norm.

Will definitely be adding Tamara Rose Blodgett to my favorite author’s list.

There is a BAD BOY in my head!

His name is Sorem.  A very long time ago he fell from heaven and landed in the realm of Hell, where he soon figured out that could enjoy certain things without feeling any guilt.

Centuries later he climbed the social ladder and was promoted to a higher demon and given the task of leading an army of lower level demons.  They hide behind human bodies as they move among us, where they seduce woman and give in to their blood lusts with violence and crime.  Eventually a new race of half- breeds will inhabit the earth and the battle between heaven and hell will proceed to a new level.

Only one person can stop him, someone just like him, someone that has the same blood.  

But will the light angel side buried deep in his soul, allow him to stop the woman that can defeat him? The woman he sired? 

Shadowed Angels….COMING SOON!

 

Review on Desmond Cory’s “On the Gulf”

I can honestly say that this is the first time I have read a psychological thriller that pulled at me and wouldn’t let me put it down. Typically this would be a movie that I would go see with the husband but not really be interested in. This story was different and I highly enjoyed it. On the Gulf by Desmond Cory drew me into a world of an Arabic state called Fariq where political battles involving greed and power struggles take place.

At first Desmond Cory slowly introduces you to Kevin Bone and his interaction with a highly powerful Rashid Sheikh, creating the atmosphere and ambience of the world where he will snag you with a hook and pull you in as if you were a fish on a line. Although there is a lot of violence fueled by the greed and desire for power you are dipped into the lives of others who are connected to the events, not only physically but mentally as well.

Desmond Cory has created a world with characters that are both good and evil and you the reader will experience both sides to the nature of their souls. Cory has a talent and skill with revealing explicit details and a style of writing that will allow the words to flow like colorful pictures in a movie. I definitely recommend this book and invite readers to step out of their normal genres to take an adventure into a world they otherwise would likely not visit.

 

 

 

Lazy Sunday!

Happy Sunday morning to you all!  Looking forward to a lazy Sunday with coffee, comfy pajamas, and a steaming hot cup of coffee.  My only dilemma is to decide if I want to curl up with a good book or break out the laptop and let Maya and Bri take control of my fingers again.  They are anxious to get their story out so most likely they possess me and take over.  Giggles.

Enjoy your Sunday!!!  Soon I will give a sneak peak into Maya and Bri’s world!!!

Spellbinding!

SECRETS AND DEMONS BY Daniel Devine

Secrets and Demons is a tale of pure unselfish love. The destiny of two souls cross each other’s path where together they learn the beauty of their hearts as well as the depths of their own personal souls.

Friendships and innocent love aid Liam and Jayden down a road to self-discovery as they are determined to find the clues to the disappearance of Liam’s father and the reason behind his disturbing silence, depression, and lack of desire to live.

Daniel Devine has managed, regardless of the reader’s opinions or beliefs, to feel every emotion that Liam and Jayden experience. I found myself entranced and sitting on the edge of my seat flinching at their pain, holding my breath as all the pieces of the puzzle and Liam’s mystery are revealed.

This a great story for the hopeless romantics of our young adult generation.
