  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.

                        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 .
