XODUS (The Astralis Series Book 1) – by K. J. McPike – Review

,,

Calling it a YA book would be an understatement; it is so much more than that. I noticed three unique things about this book. First, the characters' thoughts - mostly fears, doubts , insecurities, anxieties etc., - are highlighted with the use of...

Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight – by Daniel Fife & Dennis Rose – Review

,,

Although the core theme is not totally unique, I would say that its treatment and execution in this book is. For example, how many times have you read about the good ol' struggle between good and evil, light and dark? It gets pretty tiring is not...

Capering on Glass Bridges – by Jessica Hernandez – Review

,,

Believe it or not, you won't want to live in the world that the book is based on; at one time, it feels quite familiar, while at other times, its grotesqueness comes around to strike you with awe and shock. I found that the following passage...

Sir Princess Petra – by Diane Mae Robinson – Review

,,

Although this may seem to be a children's book first, it is one of the few children's books that does not treat the reader like a young dolt. You won't find anything 'childish' here so that even adults like me can enjoy the story. In fact the book...

Sir Princess Petra’s Talent – by Diane Mae Robinson – Review

,,

First of all, this book comes with a synopsis of the first book of the series, for the lazy ones out there who prefer skimming to reading, that is. But why would you want to skim with this series? Unless you are idiot, you'd be kicking yourself if...

Bartholomew Roberts’ Faith (The Voyages of Queen Anne’s Revenge) – by Jeremy McLean – Review

,,,

There are certain aspects about the novel which stood out for me and which I am going to point out here: a) This book is filled with many humorous dialogs: "No, no, the name wasn't the issue, just the appearance you took while...

Elsewhen – by Gary Bullock – Review

,,

A very 'romantic' tale of romance-cum-science fiction containing none of the filth and fluff that the modern day sci-fi books usually have. There is hardly much in terms of 'sexual content' and whatever I found here was rather tame by my standards....

Dark Beginning (Zoe Dark’s World Book 1) – by Nina Tells – Review

,,,

"To look at me, I was just a girl. I wasn’t too big, five-five on a tall day. I was athletic enough, but by no means a WWE Diva. My curly auburn hair was always in serious need of taming, but there was nothing scary about the frizzies. My face was...

Darkness from Beyond (Nocturnia Book 1) – by Stefano Lanciotti – Review

,,,

A fantastic book. I have not read the original Italian but after reading this fantastic translation I want to learn the language real bad! The opening scene gives you an eerie feeling, a premonition of what is about to come, something rarely seen in...

Heir Of The Blood King (Adventures of Adam Book 1) – by W.O. Cassity – Review

,

I won't call this book outstanding but it has been a fun read for me. The entire strange environment created by the author so painstakingly where everything is a novelty seems to have paid well, as it makes the book truly fascinating. The story was...

Triad (Sisters of the Storm Book 1) – by Guy Estes – Review

,

I must say that the fact that the main characters are very much mature and well-developed kinda surprised me, given that this book falls in the 'hack and slash' genre of fantasy which is not exactly my favorite. That said, I am glad I found this...
