Yours For Eternity

Yours For Eternity

My Review This is outside my usual realm of reviewing, but definitely NOT outside my personal reading interests.  So when I had the opportunity from Penguin to read this, I jumped at the chance. Like much of the country, I followed the case of the West Memphis 3.  I have seen the documentaries produced by HBO […]

Goddess Legacy

Goddess Legacy

My Review Goddess Legacy is a collection of five short stories, all about various gods and goddess in the world of Goddess Test. The first story, The Goddess Queen, tells the story of Calliope/Hera from her own viewpoint.  For reasons I can’t explain without spoilers, Calliope was not one of my favorite characters throughout the rest of the […]

Strange Worlds

Strange Worlds

My Review This collection of short stories was an extremely interesting read.  In the warning above, the author states that these stories present thought-provoking moral situations and this was an accurate statement.  There is a very definite school of thought behind these stories, and I am fairly certain that my personal beliefs and views are […]

What I […]

Anyone Can Die

Anyone Can Die

My Review NOTE:  Join me tomorrow, March 16th, for an interview with the author! Anyone Can Die revisits characters from LePore’s debut novel, A World I Never Made, in three short stories.  I have not read A World I Never Made, but reading these stories definately have made me want to!  Having read Anyone Can […]

Holiday with a Vampire III

Holiday with a Vampire III

Three novellas, so three reviews! My Review While I enjoyed this novella, I definately think it would have made a better full-length novel.  It was almost too short to fully develop the nature of some of the characters, most particularly Margaret.  I was left wanting to know more about her, her history, what made her […]
