The Brothers Finn

Great read!


The Brothers Finn is an entertaining young adult dark fantasy that amazed me in every possible way. The supernatural, the mystery, and especially the two brothers - Gage and Cooper. 

The beginning was a bit slow for my taste, but I can say that it sped up and I was totally satisfied with the pace. 

Gage and Cooper are great developed characters, overall the characters are well-developed, but Gage and Cooper are just perfectly described. The differences in their characters make them realistic and for me both of them are likable. 


Vampires, adventure, humor, mystery, murder - what not to like in this story?


I recommend!

The Tattered Black Book

Lexy Duck

Truly well-written novel!


The Tattered Black Book is a wonderfully written novel. It was hard for me to put it down. The story is very intriguing and it kept my attention from the beginning to the end.

The history,  the Native American culture, and all the details in this book were fascinating for me. 

The characters are well developed and also very interesting.

The Dragon Slayer

David Harvey

What a nice book!


The Dragon Slayer is an adventure! The author described beautifully The Dragon Slayer's world and I could clearly "see" it. The story is full of amazing creatures, dragons, and unicorns. And in all that, there are the people who are on a crazy adventure to go through all these creatures safely. 

The plot is interesting, the characters are well-developed. An interesting read for sure.

Zodiac Signs: Characteristics in Relationships, Love, and Career

Smilena Kirilova

Zodiac Signs is an informative book for all astrology lovers. 


 The characteristics of the zodiac signs are very detailed and, I can say, very accurate. The book has a lot of information and I believe once you get it you won't need another one, at least for characteristics in relationships, love, and career. 

I don't know much about astrology but I enjoyed this book and I recommend it.

A Map Maker's Dream

William Graney

A journey of a lifetime

One of the many reasons I liked that book is because I love trekking, hiking and any and all mountains. The way William Graney describes the scenic beauty of the Rockies is breathtaking.

Moving away from the depiction of nature in the book and more to the story. It is not something I've thought would interest me as much as it did. The book does start a bit sluggish but it picks up quite quick and you'll find yourself on the last page in no time.

I'll be sure to read the rest of Graney's books as soon as I can.

What a great book!


Headwind is one entertaining novel that I liked a lot! I'm glad I had the opportunity to read it!

The plot is interesting, fast-paced, and full of humor and action. Even though it is fun there is also the mystery that can keep you reading more and more. 

The characters are well-developed and entertaining. 

There were a few typos but nothing too obvious or agitating.  


Overall, Headwind is worth reading!

These short stories are thrilling and exciting - most are scary and violent at times but totally worth your time.

The Witches of Vegas

Mark Rosendorf

The Witches of Vegas is an awesome read! 


The Witches of Vegas is one wonderfully written book revealing the magical world in a unique way. The shows are described perfectly, the magic tricks are vivid and I could "see" them while reading. This is not an easy thing for an author to achieve and I applaud Mark Rosendorf for doing it amazingly well.

The plot is very intriguing. I liked the storyline and how the story evolved. I don't want to give spoilers, but I'll say there are very smart twists in this book, unexpected and interesting. 

The character development is also another thing that I liked. The characters are very well developed, they grow in that story in a way that I enjoyed. There and witches, a vampire, and a whole bunch of amazing stuff... and an ordinary human magician, Zach, who is also one great character. 


Overall, I can say that I enjoyed the book and I recommend it 100%.

Wonderful story!


This is my first time reading a book from this author but it won't be the last. Phillip Vega has his way with words.

Searching for Sarah is one rollercoaster of emotions for the reader. Truly amazing book. The story is interesting, there are suspense and lots of twists along the way. The love story is also very moving. 

I'm glad I read this book and I will surely read more from the author.

A new experience!


I want to start with the fact that I'm not a big fan of the genre but my work gives me the chance to explore books I usually wouldn't. And I'm happy I was introduced to Taking the Lead. 

The plot is interesting, the characters nicely described and developed. The twin brothers are really something else. And the poor Jessa really needs something new in her life or someone/s ... in this case - very cool twins and a whole new world for her. 

I liked the way the author brings life to the characters and the story. 


I recommend.

U-10

Sam B. Miller II

Get me one of those U-10 cards

As a huge sci-fi fan, U-10 was a true pleasure to read.

Alien tech, a paramilitary squad of elite assassins working for the US government, Afgan insurgents, this book is not just sci-fi, it's all you'd want in sci-fi, while the whole representation of all the interested parties is quite plausible.

The whole story revolves around a death race of a sort - everyone wants to get their hands on the U-10 cards, which can, as the author puts it, do 3 things - save you, kill you or turn you into the alien form that created them!

No more spoilers, get a copy and prepare for your mind to be blown.

Wandering In Wonderland

Aislinn Honeycutt

Not the Wonderland you know

An out of the box, spice, hot and compelling retelling of Alice in Wonderland.

Needless to say, that the original is a timeless classic, but Aislinn Honeycutt got that classical tale and developed it, modernized and spiced it up a bit. I like the author's writing style and the way the characters have been fleshed out.

A truly well reimagined Wonderland!

Not a fan of romance, but this book got me hooked

FLOW is the second book of the Detroit Sports Network series and upon completing it I regret I hadn't started with Lady Balls (that, however, will be fixed as I am planing on reading all 3 books very soon).

Liz Crowe did an amazing job combining romance and the sports theme into one fast-paced, hot and sizzling book. I am usually not a fan of romance, but it turns out I just haven't found the right read.

Journey to Soul was really beneficial for me.

I am happy, that I am able to find such great books because of my job, which would otherwise I wouldn't even know I need to read. Courtney Tiffany really does help the reader re-discover himself, see and feel what really is deep down below the layers we put ourselves.

Fatal Decision: The Freeman Files Series - Book 1

Ted Tayler

A well-rounded noir crime novel.


A retired detective is called back to solve a cold case - a classic plot that never gets old!

All the characters in the book are well fleshed out, but at times the descriptions of all of them, the places they go, and the irrelevant to the story things they do can be a bit ... over the top. I like a well-described scene, but there were parts of Fatal Decision that were a bit too focused on setting the scene than on the actual story.


Anyways, a great first book of the Freeman Files series.

A Man's Face

B. Roman

Murder, revenge, intrigue, and wine!

This, of course, doesn't even begin to cover what you'll find reading A Man's Face by Barbara Roman, but it did capture your attention, didn't it? Well, it certainly did grab mine! This suspense thriller has all the hallmarks of a bestseller in the genre. It does bring you to the edge of your seat - Marc's story is one full of pain and sorrow, chasing a memory of a man with a scar, the only thing he can recall from his worst moment in life!


Mrs. Roman for sure can keep her readers glued to the pages of her books and I was no exception. I will be reading more from this author for sure!

THE NINTH PASSAGE

Dale O. Cloninger

The whole story and the way it's written is quite ... life-like. The Ninth Passage by Dale O. Cloninger is the first book I read from that author and to be frank, I'm glad I got to write a review.

As it is mentioned in a previous review, the story is based on real events, but it is still a work of fiction. That fact gives the book that authentic feel, the feeling that this is something that can and probably had happened off the pages of the book. But it's not at all just that - Mr. Cloninger has his way with words, the way he describes Florida's West Coast, the scandalous relationship between Alec and Tracy, the public's reaction, and the details make you dive in and experience the story as if you're witnessing it. I'll give out no spoilers, I don't want to ruin your experience with this book - get a copy and see for yourself.

Not So Broken

Renee Regent

To be honest, romance is not my top genre, but my work allows me to find interesting books in genres I normally have little interest in. Not So Broken is one of the gems I have discovered in just such a way! The way Renee Regent has described the main protagonists, Gibson and Sacha, their personal lives and struggles, and, of course, the way they find each other is simply masterful. The author's penmanship is the wow-factor in this book, the thing that makes it a must-read. But I am not asking anyone to take my word for it - just get your copy and you'll see for yourself! Oh, and I will be reading the second and third books for sure (and that should tell you enough).

But Symmetry really did surprise me! It's not, that the story is something unheard of, but the way it's told - that's the thing that got me hooked. The author really did a great job introducing Susy and her adventures, so hats down to you Mrs. Caruana. You earned yourself a new fan!

Blood and Silver

Vali Benson

Fantastic Read! 


Blood and Silver is a fantastic book - well written with attention to detail and timeline, with great characters and an interesting plot. Personally, I always liked to read books with strong female leads and this book has exactly this in a face of a 12-year-old. Carissa is a witted brave girl! 

The history in this book is also very intriguing - many of us have no idea how people lived back in the day and how they were coping with hardships. Blood and Silver gives us information about the past and illustrates life through the eyes of the little girl who is forced to grow up way too fast. 

I enjoyed the book a lot, it was interesting and thought-provoking. 

I recommend this amazing story a hundred percent!

When a Stranger Comes...

Karen S. Bell

What a great book!


When a Stranger Comes is an excellent read for mystery/psychological thriller lovers. I loved this book. 

The storyline is so interestingly written and twisted it was hard for me to put down the book. The plot is not your ordinary one, it is innovative and intriguing and the writing itself is superb. 

The main character, Alexa, a writer who is presented with a deal of a lifetime realized that the deal is not as sweet as it sounds. The way she deals with this new reality is incredibly interesting.  Also, King Blakemore is one well-developed and compelling character. I liked the pinch of the supernatural in this story. 


Overall, I can say When a Stranger Comes is a well-written book with interesting characters and a gripping story. I enjoyed it a LOT! 


I recommend it a 100%
