Every Last Kiss

Every Last Kiss

My Review Every Last Kiss is the debut novel from author Courtney Cole, and the first in the Bloodstone Saga.  It is a wonderful start, a haunting book that I just couldn’t put down.  It began with Macy, living in modern day Pasadena, California, fresh from a break up with her boyfriend.  In the midst […]

After Eden

After Eden

My Review After Eden is the first book in the Fallen Angels series, and a book I couldn’t put down once I started.  Angels, demons, devils, bad boys, tragedy and loss.  There was a little bit of everything in this book and it was gripping.  Devi has lived most of her life in a state […]

Oubliette

Oubliette

My Review Oubliette is the second novel in the Cloud Prophecy trilogy, following Anathema.  Every now and then you come across a book that just hooks you, that makes you obsess a little over it.  When you are reading it, you are in the story, and when it is over, you almost feel as if something is […]

Nightcry

Nightcry

My Review The premise of Nightcry was a creative and imaginative one, suspense and horror combined with a supernatural element.  The suspense begins with the opening scene and continues to grow throughout the story, with lots of twists along the way.  As the story progresses, the fact that Grant himself could be the guilty party […]

New World Orders

New World Orders

My Review New World Orders is the first novel from the writing duo, a science fiction meets political intrigue meets possible alternative history and future.  This book was really more of an epic tale as it spanned decades, using real events in history but alternate explanations for those events.  As with Alive From New York, […]

Alive from New York

Alive from New York

My Review Alive from New York is the first in the new Terroist Chronicles series by the writing duo known as Edward G. Talbot.  The most interesting side note to this book is that it centers around the “death” of bin Laden, and was published before that happened in reality.  Being former military intelligence myself, […]

East Wind Returns

East Wind Returns

My Review Being an Army vet, I absolutely love military fiction of all kinds.  East River Returns is a unique take on the genre in that it is an interesting blend of actual history and a “what if” path that history could have taken.  The story centers around John Worth, a photo recon pilot in […]
