Feast of Sorrow - A Novel of Ancient Rome

Feast of Sorrow, by Crystal King, is one of the most fabulous books I have read in a while. Apicus seems to be what we would now call a Foodie. He enjoys eating to the extreme. I love that he pays such a huge amount to buy Thrasius, a slave...

Crazy Love You

Crazy Love You was really slow for me in the beginning. From there it did pick up a bit. The story features a very dangerous and scary scenario. Just what I expected from a thriller. You never know how somebody is going to react to losing s...

Cain's Blood

This is a novel that, quite honestly, shook me. I read the previous book, Project Cain, which is the teen version, and it was explosive. This book goes beyond that. Cain's Blood is broader in scope, as it was written for adults. It is also...

Project Cain

There is only one word that comes to mind after reading a book of this magnitude: explosive. Also, on second thought, incredible works as well. This is a novel that is nearly epic in its scope, and in reality, it covers a mere two and a hal...

Inherit the Dead
