The Rebuilding Year

The Rebuilding Year is a wonderful story of discovery, friendship, and taking chances on something that seemed out of both Ryan Ward's and John Barrett's realms of experience. On top of all of the emotion that they deal with, there is famil...

War is a theme that, obviously, shows through strongly in the story. War is what turned Baqir into the "War" Horseman of the Apocalypse. It is because of war that War met Russell Heinz. Two men ideally suited to help each other deal with ea...

Out Of The Blue

The skies above France during the Great War see a cleaner, almost courtlier, flight than the trenches do.  Even so, the fighting that the German and British aces lead in the skies brings its own form of danger and wild risks.  And...

Regby Dornik - The Chilling Warning

Generally speaking, Regby Dornik: The Chilling Warning was a good and enjoyable read. However, the "point" of the book does not seem to become clear until about halfway through and the title character does not make an appearance until about...

Angel's End

Angel's End is a nice, sweet story about finding love when you least expect it. Leah is a widow who has been through a lot and who isn't looking for a new relationship - especially with the new preacher. Cade, meanwhile, is not who he claim...

The Diviner

The Diviner at once seemed longer than it actually was and way, way too short. A story of treachery, vengeance, magic, and survival, the book drew me in from the opening paragraph and kept my interest to the end. What I enjoyed about The Di...

Banner of the Damned

Banner of the Damned provides a sweeping tale spanning the world first shown in the author's Inda books (although not part of the Inda series as the events in Banner are about 400 years after those events). The way the book is written may n...

5 Stars

Larkspur Road - Lonesome Way, #2

Travis Tanner and Mia Quinn are the main characters in the book and certainly are an integral part of the story. What made Larkspur Road stand out for me are the secondary stories revolving around Grady (Travis's 10-year-old adopted son), B...

Legends of the Dragonrealm Vol. III

I have always liked stories involving dragons. So, between that and an intriguing blurb, I picked up Legends of the Dragonrealm Vol. III. While I did enjoy reading the stories in this volume and having a glimpse into the Dragonrealm, I migh...

Games Traitors Play

Who do you trust when the lines keep blurring? That is, for me, Games Traitors Play in a nutshell. There is a fast pace set in a cat-and-mouse game from start to finish. Just who the cat is and who the mouse is changes throughout the book....

The Storytelling Animal - How Stories Make Us Human

The Storytelling Animal was an interesting book to read. Mr. Gottschall provides an intriguing point-of-view of how and why we tell stories. The book also shows how our collective storytelling has evolved over the years, how it continues to...

Leaves of Flame

Leaves of Flame was the first book I read by Benjamin Tate and I really enjoyed reading the book. The book drew me in from the first and kept me hooked until the last page. What I like most about the book is how, for me, there is a seemless...

A Simple Spring - A Seasons of Lancaster Novel

A Simple Spring is, for me, a book about family, community, different types of bonds, and following a dream - even when it is at odds with the way you were brought up. That is encapsulated in Sadie's story and how she finds herself at a cro...

The Impossible Cube - A Novel of the Clockwork Empire, #2

I found The Impossible Cube to have a nice mix of characters, settings, and story. The motivations for the characters may not always be the best, but each of the characters firmly believes in them, and that spills over into the "believeabil...

Covenant of War - Lion of War Series

Covenant of War is, for me, a great read thanks to the author and the way he writes. It is a story that is told in vivid detail that brings the story alive through its setting, its characters, and its story. The reader, or at least this rea...

Scorpion Betrayal

I wasn't sure what to expect of Scorpion Betrayal. I have heard of the author and his books and they have sounded interesting, but I had not picked up his books prior to this one. Between the pace the book sets, the characters, the plot and...

Legal Tender - Art Stories

Legal Tender is a story that has all of the elements I have come to expect of an Andrew Grey story and especially of the Art Series - a little mystery, finding love around a not entirely unexpected corner, characters with issues (major and...

Stars

Abstract Realism

Abstract Realism is a relatively short read (82 pages all told), but it seems longer - in a good way. While I would have liked it to be longer because I liked the characters and how they developed, the length was just right for the story. G...

One Good Year

One Good Year is a nice read and just right in length. The is angst, drama, high emotion, and two lovers coming into their own made for a thrilling story. I would recommend it to others. It has been a year since Ace won Spade in a card game...

Finn's Christmas - An Endangered Fae Story

Finn's Christmas was a short, sweet read and a great follow up to Finn. I enjoyed this "snippet" as much for its shortness - a perfect length to show a glimpse into Diego and Finn's Christmas - as I did Finn for its length. Great read and I...

The Union Quilters - An Elm Creek Quilts Novel

The Union Quilters is a story that covers a lot of ground in different ways during a tumultuous period of time in American history. It is, at once, a story of war, love, courage, loyalty, strength and principle. It is also about how all of...

Facing the Hunchback of Notre Dame - The Enchanted Attic, #1

L.L. Samson puts a very interesting spin on things in The Enchanted Attic: Facing the Hunchback. What I liked most about the book was the blending of different character personalities from Linus to Ophelia to Walter to Cato and, of course,...

Wuthering Heights (Splinter Edition)

Although it has been a few years since I read Wuthering Heights, re-reading the book has me remembering the first time I read it quite fondly. Sure, there are angst-ridden moments in the book that could, in some ways, leave the reader with...

Jane Eyre (Splinter Edition)

Jane Eyre is the kind of book I like to re-read every few years. It may not be the best form of literary fiction for some readers, but it is a good read. For me, it has several elements that I look for when in the mood for a certain type of...

Red Cell

Spies, possible new technology, out-of-the-box thinking, possible repercussions and quite a bit of action - that is Red Cell in a nutshell, but it is more than enough. The book was, for me, a very good, gripping read from the first pages th...

The Inquisitor's Key - Body Farm

While I can't say that I finished The Inquisitor's Key in one sitting, it is the kind of book that certainly kept me engrossed for long periods of time at a stretch. Both the title and blurb caught my eye at first (and what caused me to pic...

The Devil Draws Two - The Wild West Adventures of Miles O'Malley

Gravitational Attraction

I liked Isaac's and Turk's story very much. For me, it has everything - romance, space flight, things not being what they seem, danger, an alien race, and a power-hungry admiral who wants Turk to go against his nature. Isaac and Turk are bo...

Last of the Lesser Kings

For me, Last of the Lesser Kings is a story of decisions and how they can affect the characters' lives. It is also a story of how the events in their lives can affect those decisions. There is also ambition and how it can be an all-encompas...

Atonement - Dark Reign, #3

Throughout Atonement, there is a good flow, reasonable conflict (and character motivation behind it), and an overall good pace for the length of the story. While I did like the story, I did have some issues with it. One, even though there i...

Gage's Awakening - Lost Shifter, 16

I liked Gage’s Awakening overall. The key points, for me, are how Gage's and Branson's relationship develops over the course of the story, the secrets Gage learns that could (very well) be the key to some of his experiences, and how he inte...
