Review: Okay, this was another free from the author book for an unbiased and honest review. I have to say this, for his first book David Estes has officially gotten me hooked on this delightful series. The ending of this book has me ready to tear my hair out with worry over Gabriel's fate, no I am not telling you what happens you will have to read this book and find out I'm not joking.
This is David's first book and truth be told I could find very little fault with this book, there was occasional missing words or little things like that, but not enough to throw me off or turn me away from the bo
Day 77: Lure Book Review
Author: Brian Rathbone
Rating: 3.5 stars
Summary: Sam Flock is a good cop, but because of a paranormal experience during a job, she drove into the side of an ambulance, and she is suddenly off the force. In her search for answers she forms a paranormal investigation agency with her friend, Shells. They are among the worst paranormal investigators, however, they find something that is beyond their wildest imaginings.
Review: I'd received this book for free from the Author for an honest and unbiased review, that is what I will give. While the story in and of itself, was good, there were a couple of things that jarred me while reading this book. There was some frustration over the fact that while the promise of plot was good, there was not a good delivery on it (which frustrated me to no end and I hate being frustrated while reading a book). There is missing details that were needed, side issues, and incomplete
Day 76: The Emerald City Book Review
Wow. Just wow. I absolutely fell in love with this book. The Wizard of Oz stories are some of my favorite books, from the original books to the Wicked series, I absolutely adore it. This book is among those favorites. J.A. Beard has created a fantastic world using the Wizard of Oz as a leaping off point, and I readily give this book five stars and am proud to add it to my favorites. Some people have tried to recreate stories that have been around for ages, and some succeed, while others tend to fall terribly, terribly short; this book is a success in my opinion. I'd received a copy directly from the author to read and review, this is the first I've done like this and, I am quite glad I did.
The Emerald City takes place at the glamorous Osland Academy in Seattle, and our heroine, Gail, was shipped off their by her Aunt and Uncle (who have little or no problem paying the $40,000 tuition), however, there is some
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
