Will their lives be the same? - Home by Aubrey Kendall

a man can only be pushed so far! - Indomitus Est (The Fovean Chronicles #1) by Robert Brady

"An intriguing, metaphysically-framed, philosophical epic fantasy, with lots of heroics, adventure, and danger. Better yet, this is a thinking person's fantasy, one that bypasses the two-dimensional surface and delves in deep, into those multiple worlds and dimensions humans never see--well, not usually." - The Haunted Reading Room, Goodreads

"difficult to hit the pause button" - When The Reaper Comes by John L. DeBoer

"When the Reaper Comes Like watching it play out on the big screen in full Technicolor and Dolby, the action from the beginning of "When the Reaper Comes" by John DeBoer was so well laid out, it was difficult to hit the pause button until the last scene played out. [...] Recommended for any thriller fans as well as those looking for a very topical revelation of the current conflict." - Stanley, Goodreads

five keys... The Lord of Shadows Rises (The Lord of Shadows) by James Terzian

"The plot is strong and a very gripping tale from start to finish. A fantastic fast paced adventure that leaves you wanting more. Alexander was my favorite character, the 'good guy' whom tries to stop the lord of shadows from entering the world. Although the book is mostly centered around the younger generation, if you like fantasy mixed with martial arts, it's a great read for all ages. I really enjoyed it." - Pennie, Goodreads

a long journey of death, love, and loss - The Last Hero by Nathaniel Danes

"But let me just say that this book was SO much more than your typical sci-fi/military read! It really punched me in the emotional gut and I don't mean that it made me go "awww"... this damn book made me cry!! This is the first book in a trilogy and I'm on the edge of my seat for word on the next installation! The writing in this book is just so amazing that I'm not sure I can do it justice." - Desiree, Goodreads

To make matters worse... - Globlinwraith by Tamara Grantham

"He gave me a bemused smile, as if he knew something I didn’t. “I suppose I’ve thought of it from time to time, but I’ve always felt more comfortable on my own. Someone with a reputation like mine can’t afford too many attachments.” 
“Because you’re a thief?” 
“Because I’m dangerous.” It was my turn to smile. “Hardly.”"

Rita can’t say no - Feliz Navidead (Santa Fe Cafe Mystery #3) by Ann Myers

There is a lot going on in this book. It is full of action. There is never a dull moment!
If its fun, cozy mysteries you love - you will love this one!" - Wall to wall books, Goodreads


for better or for worse - Water & Blood by B. Kristin McMichael

"B. Kristin McMichael is an amazing writer. I have enjoyed every book that I have read by her. Her stories flow skilfully. Her characters are well developed. They contain mystery, action, and drama. Her stories are creative and original. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book in the trilogy."- Diane, Goodreads

“You almost scared me to death” - The Empty Room by Sarah J. Clemens

"So this is one of those books that I plan to re-read now that I know the ending.. Probably tonight. I was completely floored by Clemens’ plot twists and turns and can say 100% that I did not see any of the ending coming. [...] The ability to weave a suspenseful, mysterious story in this way with so many surprises is outstanding, but especially from a new author." - Jennifer, Goodreads

Only God can save them - Shadows of Pain (Shadow #3) by Ashley Dawn

"There is a such a good mix of action, suspense, and romance that it makes you want to keep turning pages. If you like a good romantic suspense you'll like Shadows of Pain." - Sherry, Goodreads

his worst fears came true - The Battle for Christmas by Jeremy Hinshaw

This was a great book to bring alive the story of Jesus birth, especially for those who have heard it many times before. Although fiction, it challenges us to remember that we are not doing this on our own. There is a whole army of angels at our disposal.

two unsuspecting, yet kindred souls - The Dark Fey Trilogy by Cynthia A. Morgan

"Cynthia A. Morgan has created a fantasy world with light and airy characters and has infused a magical, fantasy feel throughout this tale. It is hard not to fall in love with every well-placed word and every highly charged emotion. She writes beautifully detailed scenes that come alive from the joy of that first kiss to agony and pain. [...] Beautifully written, lovingly plotted and simply magical in the delivery!" - Dianne, Goodreads


Win and live; lose and die… Hell Holes series by Donald Firesmith

success is seductive - Escape Velocity by Susan Wolfe

"What a great read! Georgia Griffin is a delight, combating challenge after challenge with keen perceptive abilities and “special” talents. A hilarious book , it also has real heart and is grounded in values that can feel out of place in Silicon Valley. This book will be entertaining for all, but for those in Silicon Valley it will be especially satisfying." - Carol, Goodreads

Adventure and romance - Sky Raiders (Sky Raiders #1) by Michelle Diener

I think it was inevitable that my years of writing historicals would find a way to touch my science fiction work, and I had a lot of fun, and gave a lot of thought, to the use to which I put my historical background. I think fictional cultures with some basis in real culture, however much of a mix they are, make for a more believable, more interesting world, and I hope my readers think so, too. - author

"will keep you guessing" - Better Off Thread (An Embroidery Mystery #10) by Amanda Lee

"BETTER OFF THREAD moves at a good pace and the twists as the story unfolds will keep you guessing. There’s a good blend of suspense, romance, humor, and friendship for a well-balanced story. The small-town setting adds a layer of intrigue to the story." - Mason, Goodreads

romance, adventure and quirky humor - Seasons Within by Lele Iturrioz

The Five Fables of Terra:
Nature has its own will
Never take more than what you need
We are not one but many
Not everything good comes from light, not everything evil comes from darkness
Balance is Nature’s true freedom.

Review - Rogue One, A Star Wars Story

REVIEW

If you are an aficionado Star Wars, or one like me which grew up with the ‘70- ‘80 series and now I saw it just for the old times sake, or just movie lovers, for all of you, I recommend you to go and see the last Star Wars film - Rogue One, A Star Wars Story.

Yes, I already made the recommendation without even to give you any reason to do so, but believe me: if it isn’t the best movie of the Star Wars universe, then, at least, it’s the second. I consider that the Episode V, The Empire Strikes Back, it’s the best of the series, and Rogue One holds the second position among all the episodes and, as a spin-off, it definitely gain the Episode 3.5 status. One could say that this is the sequel which everybody wanted to be the Episode VII.

Why?

the future looks grim - The Forsaken Crown ( A Desolate Empire Prequel) by Christina Ochs

"The book was packed with deception and espionage, the running themes of the books, though there were a few heaps of action and even some romance added in. I was very pleased with this newest instalment and can only hope for more!" - Amy, Goodreads

What’s next? - Ethical Strains: A Short Story by Teresa Edmond-Sargeant

The soft shuffle of footsteps made Jacob look up. Across the street, a woman broke through the screen of darkness and crossed the street. Her low heels tapped on asphalt, while the faint moonlight unveiled her petite hourglass frame cloaked in a trench coat. A purple floral scarf covered her head, face and neck; only her eyes revealed a personal aspect. 

"a wonderful murder mystery" - Catch Me If You Can by Miss Mae

"a wonderful murder mystery" - Lynn, Goodreads
The howling wind of a hurricane. The creak of footsteps on the stairs. The wailing of a dog in the dark of night.
"Catch Me If You Can", the thrilling romantic mystery by award-winning author Miss Mae, is now available in an enhanced audiobook at PulpRadio.net.

Book Tour Grand Finale for Catch a Fallen Star by Amy Vastine

Sometimes hitting bottom can help you find what the important things in life are. Boone just hopes that Ruby will agree.
"Funny and sweet and romantic, Catch a Fallen Star is more than just a story of two people falling in love. It’s also about family and addiction and recovery and restoration. Toss in a sassy teenager with lots of wisdom in spite of her occasional stupidity and this book becomes a new favorite." - Reading Is My SuperPower - Review

Love is a mere fantasy - Under Ground (Under Ground #1) by Alice Rachel

"This book was so good that I wanted to read it quickly, I wanted to know what'll happen next, but then this book was also so sooooo good that I read it very slowly because the world building, the pacing was impeccably done and I didnt want UG to end." - Tuba S, Goodreads

I only fear one thing - Silverwitch (Olive Kennedy, Fairy World M.D. #4) by Tamara Grantham

GOBLINWRAITH - I only fear one thing. 
Being tortured, starved, beaten, burned, and left for dead should have broken me. Instead, I became stronger. I no longer fear those things. Not anymore.
I only fear one thing.

Whatever is written in their stars... Sky Raiders (Sky Raiders #1) by Michelle Diener

"I can save you some time if you read and loved Dark Horse you are going to love this one as well, it has some very basic similarities as far as being what is called a "space opera" (I have no clue why) it is a science fiction adventure that is based around a romance (or maybe it is the other way around)."- Douglas Meeks, Goodreads

Book Tour Grand Finale for A Family Under the Christmas Tree by Terri Reed

What do you hope readers take with them after they’ve read it?
I hope readers will see the beauty of letting go of expectations and embracing new circumstances. That sometimes life doesn’t go the way we want and that’s okay because the unexpected sometimes is more than we could have hoped for. Launch - Author Interview

the greatest weapon - Insidious (The Marked Mage Chronicles #1) by Victoria Evers

"Keep your eye on Victoria Evers, her foundation entry for The Marked Mage Chronicles Series, INSIDIOUSis a non-stop unveiling of brilliant characters, a tantalizing plot filled with more twists than a Twizzler all wrapped up into one riveting read!

Hell Holes: What Lurks Below (Hell Holes, #1) by Donald G. Firesmith

A magic powerful enough to kill... The High Road by Ken Hughes


The High Road is the first book in a trilogy of street-level urban fantasy adventures. If you like heart-pounding suspense, comic-book energy, and Jim Butcher's Dresden Files, then you'll love Ken Hughes's gritty, magical series.


Elves are dying... The Elf by Max Dune

"This book is just epic. There is no other word I can think of that would be better describing it. From the first chapter, to the very last page, it is an adventure. The characters are dynamic. The action sequences kept me on edge. It holds gentle moments as well." - Hadassah, Goodreads

When he finally returns... Sky Raiders (Sky Raiders #1) by Michelle Diener

"This initial story in a series of interconnected new space operas (think Star Wars) from Michelle Diener has intense action and adventure with a romance element.

Eve the First: A Fairy Tale Revision by Teresa Edmond-Sargeant

"Eve ruled the land of Regnum with the utmost passion of all kinds: love, fear, cruelty, and intensity, but mostly the last three. Every day she studied maps of foreign kingdoms, plotted her next conquest, and trained her soldiers until their feet bled and their sanity broke. Wherever she went, her subjects genuflected and lowered their heads, averting eye contact."
