This Book Was Given In Exchange For An Honest Review
This collection of fifteen Lovecraft-inspired tales spans human history and genres. Ranging from high fantasy to martial arts epic to the far future, they are all linked by a common theme of the alien unknown. Among the stories’ inhabitants, you will find:
– A play so bizarre merely reading it may drive one mad.
– The dark secret of the forgotten patients locked away in the bowels of a seaside asylum.
– A desperate mission to deliver an untested weapon to the edge of the solar system.
– A martial arts tournament that will determine the fate of humanity.
– An eerie fairy tale featuring a character with a passing resemblance to a certain little yellow bear.
– And of course, the King of Rock n’ Roll.
CTHELVIS AND OTHERS is the quintessential doomsday and altered reality short story novel. Written in the same vein as the mighty HP Lovecraft, Pratt is indeed channeling his favorite horror author icon.
This book is packed with 15 individual, masterfully written stories that are so spines tingling and… Continue reading

*This Book Was Given To Me In Exchange For An Honest Review*
This book is fast paced and always keeps you guessing. It’s Short and sweet but not a single word is wasted. I found it totally engrossing and surprising.
Madison has sworn off all men. So has her best friend and roommate Jessica. In fact, it turns out there are a lot of scorned girls on campus and they’re all itching for some pay back. So naturally they band together to form the Guys are Props Club. Madison has learned her lesson about men, especially the good looking ones. She wants nothing more than to keep her head down and make it through collage. Until that is, Sebastian walks into her life and complicates things. The situation gets worse when Jessica decides he is her next target for pay back.
My favourite thing about this book was that I had no idea whether I should like or even trust Sebastian. I could not decide if he was a slimy, well practiced player; as some of his actions and one liners would suggest, or if he was a… Continue reading
Melanie here aka VampireLovingDork back with my review of A First Love Never Dies by Margaret Taylor which was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
I am not a big romance fan but throw some science fiction in there and it will sometimes catch my attention and that is exactly what happened with this book. When Nerd Girl was offered the book for review I read the synopsis and had to add it to my list and I am so glad that I did.
A First Love Never Dies is a real page turner which I read straight through not coming up once for air. The characters are amazing and the writing fluid and compelling which in a novella is, for me at least, unusual when not being written as part of an existing series. Here though I had no problem connecting with Janel and the rest of the ensemble.
Lovers of classic Joss Whedon (think Firefly) will adore this adventure and just like with the show will find themselves at the end all too soon, but here we have hope that part 2 will not be too far behind because… Continue reading

I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.
The Storm and The Darkness by Sarah Cradit is a riveting thriller. It is well written and will keep you glued to your chair reading. The story unfolds from the perspective of each of the main characters. Each chapter gives you a little more insight into their various issues and demons they are battling. My only complaints are that the antagonist was obvious too soon in the story and, although not a stereotypical “happily-ever-after” ending, the story did wrap up a little too quickly and neatly. However, my perspective on this might be colored by not having read the first book in this series. I enjoyed the characters, the family dynamics as well as the pace of the story. I look forward to reading Ms. Cradit’s next novel.
Ana Deschanel flees to an island off the coast of Maine to avoid trouble with her family and friends in New Orleans. She encounters coldness from most of the inhabitants except for the kindly caretaker of her family’s island house. The storm that shuts off the island from contact with the… Continue reading

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.**
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! As much as i loved the first book, I loved this one even more. Hot redhead sheriff, zombies, mercenaries and a crazy guy driving a Winnebago. I say that is a recipe for an excellent book. Like the first book, this book kept me on the edge of my seat. It was full of action and humor. I loved every second of it. Each character is so different and I love each of them in their own crazy ways. Sheriff Penny Miller is of course my favorite because she’s tough and a smart ass. I am so excited to get started on the third book. Thank you Steven W. Booth and Harry Shannon for writing such fun books to read.

Melanie here aka VampireLovingDork back with my review of Shadows Of The Past by E. A Jensen which was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
Leaving a negative review is never fun but authors come to us asking for an honest opinion and so that is what I feel should be given and honestly if I had not agreed to read this book for review I would have put it down just a few pages in.
Often with Indie books there are typos and the odd grammatical error that a good editor could fix and usually, if the story is strong and the general writing good, then I can overlook them. Sadly in this book this was not the case. I even looked the author up on Amazon to see if perhaps English was a second language as the wording in places was strange and the over all style very stilted.
The synopsis looks good, a story of supernatural creatures and the revisiting of the idea of an overall ruling council with a paranormal type section of a police force. Unfortunately… Continue reading

*I was given this book in exchange for an honest review*
Bobby Pinker hates his life, he gets up for work, goes to work in his cube in an office and goes home to an empty apartment, he repeats this daily. Until he meets Ron and him and Ron quickly become best friends. When Ron kills himself Bobby refuses to believe that his best friend would do that, no matter what the evidence says. Bobby wont rest until he gets to the truth, even if it puts his life in danger.
I was hesitant about reading this book but I am glad I decided to pick it up to review. The sarcasm and dark jokes don’t give up throughout and you find yourself laughing at the most inappropriate of times.
Bobby Pinker drives me insane though, I just want to slap him and tell him to sort his life out well before his best friend dies.
Bobby grows on you though and his character is flawed but that is what makes this story work and really sets it in reality, he’s not perfect, he’s not the smartest or the best looking but… Continue reading

You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and beautiful ending! I had tears of joy overflowing in my eyes I felt like I was sharing in the character’s moment of happiness! This story is so captivating and touching it really pulls… Continue reading
