At thirteen years old, Mel is too young to become a clan assassin, unless she can survive her master’s death sentence. Mel was given the task of killing Ethan Morus, the treasure hunter, but she disobeyed and protected him instead. Now she’s been tasked with ridding the land of the Black Rider, an ancient evil. If she falls to the demon, Ethan will stand alone against the Dark, and her master will have won. Yet she is not just any warrior and with victory, all will fear her. For she is Hellish Mel.

***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***

 JR Roper is a colorful story teller.  His words snag you and pull you into the pages of his story.  I actually felt the wind in my hair, the palatable emotions of the characters and I walked with Mel towards her “trail”.  Exhilarating!!

I had the honor of reading Mel & the Black Rider (Short Stories from The Morus Chronicles) for an honest review and I will tell you this much.  I was disappointed that it was short, but only because I love the way Roper writes his stories.  He gives his characters dimension and life.  I stand by my proclamation that he is an author to look out for in the future.

I tip my Nerd Girl hat again to you JR Roper!  I enjoyed your snippets and am patiently awaiting the next release!
