Defects (The Reverians Book 1) – by Sarah Noffke – Review

,,

The book is quite a page turner . Em is a character with a unique gift, but she also lacks a certain power, and the story is all about how she acquires that power. Right from the first sentence, you know that you are in for a very tense, thrilling...

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...

Fever – by Tonya Plank – Review

,

Quite a promising book on ballroom dance, but where is the romance? Poor Rory; her story often reminds me of the person I was myself; I used to write stories and poems in college but the harsh realities of life forced me to work hard for a...

A very good psychological book on relationships with a dose of adequate suspense Strangely enough, the character of Carly often reminds me of the overly paranoid character of Jessica Tandy in the movie Birds, even though their situations...

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...

,,,

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...

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...

No Quarter: Dominium – Novella 1 – by MJL Evans and GM O’Connor – Review

,,,

Given that this is a first time work from these authors, I must say that the output is commendable. This is a very promising ebook that does not look like it is written by first time authors. All in all I loved the book. While historical romance is...

Macabre Tales – by Tony Thorne MBE – Review

These are kids' stories with deep moral messages attached to them. They are not exactly what I would call 'macabre' but one thing I can say is that the kids will find them entertaining and secondly, the stories are often full of mystery and...
