Raven's Breath Book Review

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble 
  






My Review: 
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Raven is the first ever female grim reaper.  Unlike the male version, she wears a skin fitted black leather uniform and has black wings.  Suddenly, many years later, there's a new female reaper in purgatory, her name is Holli.  She's the polar opposite of Raven, with long platinum blonde hair, white uniform and white wings.  Death's excuse is that she's there to assist Raven with the sudden influx of phenoms.  This makes Raven suspicious, and with the help of her best friend Garrett they begin to unravel a huge mystery.  Will Raven ever get over her jealousy of Holli?  Will Garrett and Raven uncover Death's sinister plot before it's too late?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Raven is a strong female character that I absolutely loved.  She had so much love and compassion for humanity that you immediately connect with her.  I thought that the relationship between Raven and Garrett was awesome and I could easily see why Raven cared about him so much.  This was a great edge of your seat fantasy novel, I'm hoping there will be a book two, if there is, I can't wait!

Dark Energy Book Review

Dark Energy

Synopsis: 
Josephine uncovers an important secret about the Valituras, a power-hungry organization that has lived in secret for centuries. They have amassed powerful dark magic and infiltrated all levels of the government. Now that their existence is publicly exposed and Josephine’s discovery leads to the capture of more Valituras agents, they decide to make a big move and declare war against the country. Josephine scrambles to protect herself and her loved ones from this powerful foe.

As she uncovers more clues in her search to expose the hidden identities of the Valituras leaders, her boyfriend grapples with his new talent of white magic which proves to be a potent yet unreliable source of power. Even as Mark’s abilities expand, he struggles to avoid burnout which will lead to a coma and reversion back to mainstream magic. When the U.S. government’s MADA department hires him to attempt restoration of an ancient historical site, American Stone Henge, the Valituras target him for termination.  

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes  & Noble 

My Review:

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

This is book three of "The Grumpy Old Wizards" series. In this portion, Josephine and her friends are once again being pursued by the very dangerous Valituras Group. They had quite a few close calls and if it wasn't for her boyfriend Mark's white energy, it is doubtful any of them would have survived. As they close in on the Valituras, what secrets will be revealed? How will they be able to fight the dark energy that has been attacking them?

This has been such an enjoyable series. Josephine's character and need to protect her friends and family is just amazing. I loved when everyone moved into her new house, I was surprised that the house wasn't cramped! This was an awesome mystery as we uncover who is behind all of the attacks done by the Valituras. The ending has an interesting twist that I never saw coming. This is definitely one of my favorite paranormal mysteries, and I'm sure you will be as engrossed and intrigued as I was!

The writing was strong and the dialogue -- which many people simply cannot write -- was terrific." - Christie Giraud, editor, Editingpro.com "What a fantastic read! I couldn't put it down! I had to keep reading just to see what twist life was going throw out at Angela next!" - Chicklit Plus "The author has a great sense of humor, even about death, but when the story called for it, she was reverent and empathetic in the way her characters handled each other." - Caroline Fardig, Bestselling Author "This story captures how a real housewife would likely feel if her dead mother popped up and became a regular part of her life.

Scattered Links Book Review


Thirteen-year-old Oksana lives on the streets of Russia with her pregnant mama and abusive aunt—both prostitutes. When Mama swells into labor, Oksana makes a decision to save herself from abandonment, a decision that torments her forever. But her plan fails when her aunt dumps her in an orphanage before she has the chance to say goodbye to her mama or tell her the secret that haunts her.

Scattered Links is a story of family and the consequences that come from never learning how to love. It’s a story of a girl’s inability to bond with her adopted family and the frustrations that follow.

How can a child understand the mechanics of forming a healthy relationship when she never had a mother who answered her cries, held her when she was frightened, fed her when she was hungry, or loved her unconditionally?

Only when the child meets a rescued abused horse, and recognizes the pain in his eyes, does she begin to trust again.

"CAPTIVATING! SCATTERED LINKS takes you down the street of nearly any Eastern European town, arm-in-arm with the orphaned. Michelle has captured the beauty and horror millions of children live everyday. The attention to detail is impressive. Having lived in a post-Soviet country for a time, visiting orphaned children, this fictional account rings with truth, from the heart-wrenching pain of abandonment to the realization of self-worth, and the love family and faith brings. Thank you for such an uplifting book, appropriate for the young reader, as well as adult. May your heart be encouraged, as mine was." - Kim de Blecourt, speaker and award-winning author of "Until We All Come Home: A Harrowing Journey, a Mother's Courage, a Race to Freedom"

 “Scattered Links is a novel that pulls its characters from the gutters and, in the end, celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit.” A reviewer comment.

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Oksana had a difficult life. Growing up in the poverty ridden area of Kazak, Russia, she was forced to scrounge around for food and even steal. Now at 13, she must not only steal to feed herself, but also her pregnant mother. She chances upon a soup kitchen run by an American pastor and his wife. Meeting them begins a chain of events that will change her life forever.

"Scattered Links" is a touching story of a young girl's journey transitioning in America. This was quite an emotional novel. The things that this child went through before she was adopted is absolutely horrible. The emotional detachment that she went through, and her inability to trust anyone was heartbreaking. I did fall in love with Oksana though. She was a very determined young lady, even when she did something reckless, she always had good intentions. This is a sweet story of unconditional love and trusting God to show you your path.

Savior Synopsis:

The son must find his father and keep the secret of the Chocomal, the ancient Mayan code underlying the creation of matter in the universe, from falling into the wrong hands.

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Al and Ricky Lyons take a family vacation to Guatemala, a place loved by Ricky's mother before cancer took her away much too soon. What they had planned to be a fun vacation of surfing, sun and sightseeing turns into a race against time and a fight for their lives when Ricky comes across an ancient Mayan tablet. The tablet is wanted by the Santos Meurtos, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

This is a great edge of your seat dystopian novel. I was drawn in immediately and could not put it down. You can easily connect with the characters and the father son relationship is so realistic. My favorite character was Ricky. Even though he had no idea how he was going to save his father, his determination drove him. You could also see him grow as a person during his trek across the country to rescue his dad. This was an wonderful story of faith and courage. Even if you don't read dystopian novels, this book takes you on an amazing cross-country adventure you're sure to enjoy.

Description:

Why do 90% of the people who start trading FX lose money? ‘World-class traders, trainers and authors’ have spent many years exaggerating, misrepresenting, advocating techniques that no one could ever master, and taught out-of-date, worthless techniques is why. Adding to the fact that new traders trust “experts”; they attend “free” how-to-trade FX seminars offered by self-described expert traders; they buy books that “reveal the secrets” of successful traders and eventually have to learn a lot of hard lessons of big money losses. This book will arm you with the knowledge you need to avoid the fate of 90% of new FX traders and in turn, big money losses. How can I be so sure? I was one of the thousands who graduated from the school of big losses. The only thing I became an expert in was losing money. I paid for courses, bought and read books, and purchased a number of software systems when I first became an FX trader. I only wish is that this book had been available then, being armed with these lessons and those learnt from others' experiences. I would have saved thousands of dollars of hard earned money, years of time, and trouble at home. This book details the experiences of seven of us who believed the experts. It reveals the ways FX trading experts misrepresent their success, why the methods they teach don't work for traders. Reading this book before you spend anything on “expert” training, you’ll know what questions to ask, how to get to the truth, how not to get taken by disreputable trainers, and how you can more likely become one of the 10% of new FX traders who actually make money. After two years of planning, writing and editing, utilizing Winsor Hoang’s 15+ years’ experience in the forex market as well as drawing on the experience of others, this book is able to identify the lessons learned and ways to be more aware of the pitfalls of investing in a competitive forex market. With so many “experts” in the market, taking peoples' money and offering nothing of value in return, this book provides a wealth of knowledge that every new investor should know when entering the forex market! The Bull, The Bear, and The Baboon offers an insight into the currency trading market through the eyes of seven people, each with a different reason for becoming a trader. Their individual stories and the ways in which they interact and influence each other provide the reader an eye-opening portrayal of the trading world. Both entertaining and informational, this book reads like a suspense novel and, at the same time, offers practical advice to both the novice and experienced investors. It is a captivating narrative story in what is typically a nonfiction, educational genre. Inspired by the overwhelming number of swindlers that fool the average individual entering currency trading, this book is written for mainstream audiences, weaving very real trading cautionary points into the technical pitfalls, disciplines, and psychologies related to trading.

The Angelic Gene Book Review

The Angelic GeneThe Angelic Gene by Steve Goodwin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis:
An orphan girl unsure of who she is or why a man wants her dead carries a secret. She will experience humanity. Are you ready? Join Sophia in a heart thumping adventure across England set in the 1870’s, exploring faith, doubt, love and fear. A story, quoted by the editor as “really something special”, you’ll continue to contemplate long after the journey unfolds.

Purchase on Amazon 

My Review:
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Sophia was raised in an orphanage and had no idea how special she truly was. Her best friend Anne came to the orphanage when they were both 4 years old. Little did Sophia know that she was written about in a prophecy that would take the girls on an amazing adventure across England.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I found out that this is the backstory to Steve Goodwin's Elijah Hael series. Although I haven't read the other novels, my interest has certainly been peaked. I loved how realistic the interaction among the characters were. The bond between Michael, Sophia, and Anne was unbreakable. The things I loved most about the story were the Christian values that it repeatedly taught and the fact that they were backed up with scripture. This was a fantastic tale about faith, love, and God's plan for our lives. A must read for Christians young and old!
