If…: Second Chance – by Jackie Mae – Review

I must say that I have a weak spot for books with poetic and flowery language. Maybe that is why I mostly prefer reading old books because modern authors seems to have lost the sense of poetry. This author is however, an exception. Here is an...

Southern Medley and a Sordid Affair – by P T Borden – Review

,,

Part of the blurb reads like stuff soft-core porn films of yore were made of: "It is here she meets a building maintenance man named Dick, and, in indulging in an erotic affair, becomes trapped in a sick web of manipulation and...

Voice in the Wilderness (Against All Enemies Book 1) – by H. L. Wegley – Review

,

I rarely read political books - be it fiction or non-fiction, because they are usually preachy and somewhat dogmatic. Plus the subject does not interest me at all. However, this book is an exception. I am glad I got it for myself, after much...

Pi Day Doomsday – by JOHN PAUL CATER – Review

,

The author has, without a doubt done his homework, for it shows in the book. The mad scientist villain is not your ordinary, regular stock villain character; he is no caricature. He certainly comes with multiple shades, plus a sardonic sense of...

Rose’s Sin: A Prequel – by Nancy Glynn – Review

,

Then everything in the sequel would have made much more sense: esp. why the characters and situations were like the way they were. Anyway, now that you know it, don't do what I did and buy this prequel before Black 21: things would make much more...

Black 21: (Golden Hills Legacy Series, #1) Occult Supernatural – by Nancy Glynn – Review

,

This is one book which does not bore you with overlong, descriptive passages of natural sceneries or atmosphere. This is the kind of my book which, after giving you just the bare minimal tidbits about surroundings, grabs hold of your neck and jumps...

Cut – by Erin O’Riordan & Tit Elingtin & Beth Coney Smith – Review

That the authors can create rich and somewhat chilling atmosphere is proved by this book. At the very beginning, atmosphere is what sets the tone for the rest of the novel. Notice how rich and powerful the following imagery is: "Behind the...

Murder in Kathmandu – by Pepi Vilana – Review

,

I ask this because it almost reads like a true crime story. I am commenting on the amount of realism included in the story, of course. If it is not based on any real event then the fact that the author can make it appear like one is a real testament...

Lost Seoul – by John Mayston – Review

,

You may or may not like the guts of this book, but the fact remains that John Mayston spares no details to tell you that life can sometimes be hard, indeed very hard. You may hate the raw language of the book, you may also hate the hard hitting...

The Snail’s Castle – by Mark Gordon – Review

,

I might be damned if I call this erotica but a few of the passages did indeed make me horny (notable one among them is below); yet they are so poetic that you won't ever take any offense to them. I only wish this is the language all real erotica...

Melody Hill – by Rick DeStefanis – Review

,,

Very solid piece of writing but could have been better I don't know if this is an autobiographical piece of the author but in terms of authenticity, I believe that very few war books can compete with it. The 'drama' is limited, which is good;...

Identity Crisis – by Vicki Zell – Review

,

Quite a well-done murder mystery that won't let your anxious nerves rest until the end Vicki is no doubt a very articulate writer who knows what to tell and when. The writer in her manages to grab the reader's interest right from the start...
