GOOD THURSDAY ALL

  Good Thursday all . Today I have a new author for you all to check out . Mike Robinson and his book THE PRINCE OF EARTH


                           BOOK BLURB 


Praise for Mike Robinson:

"This novel is as good as any you're going to find, a page-turner, an electron burner... I'm going to go back and read the book again, just to enjoy every nuance of Mike Robinson's excellent writing." ~Review of The Green-Eyed Monster, by Mike Robinson

About "The Prince of Earth":

It had come back.
It had come back and it was stronger.
It’s been twenty years. Not again. Not now.
Not anytime.

In 1988, young American traveler Quincy Redding is trekking across the misty terrain of the Scottish Highlands. She is destined for the infamous peak Ben MacDui, the summit of which soon finds her inexplicably debilitated and at the mercy of a malevolent entity.

The book spans twenty years, alternately following Quincy in her 1988 ordeal in Scotland as well as Quincy in 2008, when, as an adult, she begins experiencing abnormalities that threaten her family and her life – phenomena that may be related to what happened all those years ago.

As both older and younger Quincy learn more of their situation, and as their worlds further entwine, she becomes increasingly uncertain of the perceived temporality or reality of each period.

Be sure to check out Mike Robinson's other titles:
- The Green-Eyed Monster
- Skunk Ape Semester

                        MY REVIEW 

  This is the first book I have by this author and I must say it was a page turner . I had to find out what was going on . Let me introduce you to Quincy a young woman who in 1988 suffered a serious trauma while in Scotland .  The book spans twenty years of Quincy's life . She is trying to figure out what is going on . What is happening to her and her family and is it connected to what happened on the mountain in Scotland so many years ago . 
   This book is such a complex book Quincy is such a complex character . When we see her in 1988. She is care free and taking the world by the horns . When we see her in 2008 she is really kind of a shell of what she was 20 year early . She is a married woman with a son and a very stressful job. So when we see her starting to go through the abnormal things at the beginning of the book we just say its the stress of her job . She is just stressed out . But how things change as we see she is caught between her life and the memories of what happened 20 years earlier . 
  This book is not a fairytale , there is no prince to rescue the damsel in distress. This is a on the edge of your seat read that will keep you reading . I read this book in an evening I was totally engrossed. I had to figure out what the heck was going on . I liked that the author had both 1988 and 2008 in each chapter . I really kept us on our toes .  There were twists and turns all the way through out the story . There were just a couple of times I had to go back and reread a paragraph because I was confused . Over all I truly enjoyed this book and will be looking into more books by this author. So if you want a book that will keep you reading and go wow at the ending check it out .

Good Wednesday all

  Good Wednesday all today we are going to review a novella by Mathew Cox . SOPHIE'S LIGHT ''

                            BOOK BLURB


  
Sophie lives in a most peculiar cottage at the center of the Forgotten Forest, its inside much larger than its outside.

You see, the house must be large, for it holds a great troll as well as a little girl. As one might expect, working for such a creature is rather frightening to a seven-year-old, but the endless expanse of black trees outside is even scarier.

She’s afraid to make even the slightest sound, for the troll abhors loud children.

He’s not terribly fond of quiet children either―unless they’re in his stew.

Sophie’s precious light offers comfort in her darkest moments. She can’t remember where it came from, but it’s her only source of hope holding back the gloom that yearns to devour her soul. Trolls are covetous beasts, and when he spots her shiny bauble and steals it, Sophie faces two terrible options:

Stay and suffer the wrath of a furious troll, or take her chances in a forest of her deepest fears.

                     MY REVIEW 

   This book was one book that I just couldn't put down . I actually read it in one sitting this morning . The author really takes us on an emotional journey in this book . Let me introduce you to Sophie a sweet young girl who is living with a troll. She is basically his slave, the troll hates her and really just wants to bake her in a pie . But she has a secret a light that helps her  Until the day her light goes missing and she goes after it fighting the bogey and the goblins to find her way home 
   The characters are so well written and so complex . You really want to just keep Sophie in a nice soft bubble and help her get out of the Troll's way . You do feel like she can make it out and on her own as you read . You see her in a way that will make your heart swell and have tears in your eyes . The troll is the epitome of evil . You really want to stab him over and over . You can't help but hate him . 
  This book had me tearing up from the very first page . The things this author puts this young girl through is so horrible . I just about had to put the book down and walk away for a few mins . I knew there had to be more to the story then just a young girl and a troll and man I was right . The author takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride . The twist at the end was unbelievable . I am not going to tell you but you will cry tears of joy at the end of the book and everything will make sense . I must admit this book is addictive and I had it read in a morning. If you want to add a great suspenseful book add this one to your summer reading list

GOOD MONDAY ALL

   Good Monday all , today is release day for Lisa Kessler . The sixth book in the muse chronicles . DANCE OF THE HEART is out today.

                            BOOK BLURB 


He's willing to lay down his life, to save hers...

Tera Muldoon not only runs her own dance studio, but she's also secretly the human vessel for the Muse of Dance. Having her name at the top of an immortal's hitlist isn't helping her social anxiety issues, but everything changes the day she hires a bodyguard.

Gavin Thompson is the best at what he does, and when his security company is hired to protect a dance instructor, he thinks it's business as usual. But no one warned him being with Tera would blur the lines between personal and professional interests. What started out as a job might be his only chance at a future he never dreamed possible.
They just need to live to see it 
The Prophecy - "Every generation the nine daughters of Zeus are reborn, and with their rebirth are also nine Guardians. They will be marked by the gods, and given gifts to protect his treasure. Their abilities will only be unlocked when they find their muse."

                        MY REVIEW 
  
     This is the sixth book in the series and I feel they just keep getting better . Tera is a dance instructor who is also has the muse of dance . When she is threatened and on the top of a hit list . She has to do something  so she hires a bodyguard . Gavin Thompson who really is good at his job but when he meets Tera all things are thrown out the window and love blossoms.
   I simply adore this series, the characters are so well written and complex. I love Tera she is so sweet and tough . But she is also plagued with really bad anxiety issues  . When you first see her you so just want to wrap her up in a warm blanket and hug her tight . Telling her that everything will be ok . But as you read you see her really grow and become the woman that we all knew she could be . She is tougher then she really thinks she is . Especially when she stands up to her mom.  We so understand why she is the way she is when we meet mommy dearest . Gavin is hot and sexy and good at his job. When you see him with Tera we see a man that is totally smitten but is scared that if he doesn't do his job she could loose her life . They naturally fit together and its such a fun time reading them . We get to see Kronus in this episode also . He is really trying to get a Zeus and will do anything to get his attention. He is evil and I loved him . 
   This is such a fun read the author uses the back ground of dance for these characters to fall in love . She does such a good job with all the dance set up . The dance between Tera and Gavin is so sexy it will melt your kindle . There is romance and danger in this book that will keep you reading. I truly enjoyed this book and this series . I can't wait for the next book to come out . So if you want a great book for your summer reading list .Check out this series . You will want to dance .
