Twenty Four Potential Children of Prophecy by Emily Martha Sorensen @CleanYAFantasy
Twenty-Four Potential Children of Prophecy (The Numbers Just Keep Getting Bigger Book 1) - Emily Martha Sorensen

I have been a fan of Emily Martha Sorensen’s ever since I read Dragon’s Egg, so I was excited to get my hands on Twenty Four Potential Children of Prophecy, her new novella series.

 

Twenty-Four Potential Children of Prophecy (The Numbers Just Keep Getting Bigger Book 1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads


 

MY REVIEW

 

Many times I find it hard to rate novellas. I like a lot of depth and detail in my stories, but sometimes the characters win me over, and Henina does that very nicely.

 

Henina is a fabulous character that kept me in stitches with her antics. She never stops talking and loves to argue. She’s in no hurry to get married and have children, like so many other girls.

 

She is an apprentice for her father, dumpster diving for items they can repair and sell.

“The days of the war are numbered…She will rule with wisdom and grace.”

 

Twenty four girls were rounded up and taken to the castle, Henina among them. Because of her personality, she never thought of herself as the chosen one.

 

A fun and quick read, filled with lots of smiles and chuckles.

 

I’m excited to meet her dog, Mud, and spend more time with her in Fifty Three Assassins With a Head Cold.

 

I found this hard to rate and bounced between 3 and 4…but because I couldn’t help but smile and laugh at Henina’s antics, loving her brash and witty personality, and left wanting more, I went high.

Review – Shade and the Skinwalkers by Marilyn Peake @marilynpeake
Shade and the Skinwalkers - Marilyn Peake

Shade and The Skinwalkers by Marilyn Peake is filled with so much goodness and I fell in love with the ghost whisperer, Shade.

 

Check out this gorgeous cover by Deranged Doctor Design.

 

Shade And The Skinwalkers (The Shade Series #2)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I love Marilyn Peake’s stories, so when I went to the mailbox and found Shade and The Skinwalkers, I could hardly wait to begin reading. I love young adult paranormal and supernatural stories and Marilyn never lets me down.

 

Shade’s first night in her new home in a trailer park in New Mexico, she meets Kai, who will become her new best friend. They both have special abilities and they will need them.

 

Shade is very familiar with ghosts…so what comes next?

 

Her other best friend Misty is still missing (from the first book, Shade) and she can’t let it go. Now, she has a new one mystery to solve, a serial killer who must be stopped.

 

Shapeshifters good. Skinwalkers bad. We have kidnapping, human trafficking, sex slavery, murder, ghosts, Native American culture, mysticism…so much going on that I was never left wanting for something else to happen, some new threat to raise its evil and ugly head.

 

We hop from fantasy to reality and back again.

 

I love flawed characters, struggling through life, trying to do the right thing. It is so much fun watching them grow into the people they are meant to be.

 

Shade has an awesome group of friends and a new bestie. I can hardly wait to see how that plays out, as they head off to college. The characters are amazing and lovable, and Shade’s mom…well don’t want to spoil anything…So I will be looking for more adventure in the next book of the series.

Review - Trials of a Teenage WereVulture by Emily Martha Sorensen @CleanYAFantasy
Trials of a Teenage Werevulture (Trilogy of a Teenage Werevulture) (Volume 1) - Emily Martha Sorensen

I have been reading Emily Martha Sorensen’s wonderful stories for a while now.

Take a look at Trials of a Teenage WereVulture and you will see why.

 

Cover by Rebecca Frank

 

Trials of a Teenage Werevulture

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY TEASE

 

“Oh,” she said. She sounded disappointed. “That’s not really a clan. That’s, like…a club. You might as well join Were Scouts.”

 

(24% on Kindle)

 

MY REVIEW

 

 

Looking for a fun, paranormal story about a young girl coming of age in the wereworld? Look no further.

 

Something’s wrong. The turning wasn’t what Lisette hoped for. Her wings are all wrong. She’s not a werehawk, she’s a Werevulture.

 

She went to Werepedia to see what’s what. She’ll be going to Flyer’s Education for flying lessons.

 

She loved her best friend, Kegan, and didn’t judge her for being different, but when she became different too, her feelings became mixed.

 

What clan would accept her? Let’s go to Wereconnection.com and find out. She may be the odd man out, but I have a feeling she’ll show us how valuable she would be to any clan.

 

We have a vampire pumpkin, wereporcupine, wereplatypus, werebutterfly, weretrees….and all the normal vampires, centaurs, mermaids and such.

 

Her instincts are good and we will find out how good as she investigates the Rarity Clan, who wanter her to join up with them.

 

It is Emily Martha Sorensen’s ability to surprise me with her creative writing and smiles throughout, even in the tough times, that keeps me reading her work. She has a wonderful ability to create such marvelous characters.

 

We can anticipate many things to come, but Trials of a Teenage WereVulture is filled with wit and humor, evil and danger. The creatures spark the imagination and I am left with a feeling we are all special in our individual ways. We all have much to offer to those who enter our lives.

Giveaway & Review – Keep In A Cold Dark Place by Michael F Stewart @MichaelFStewart @XpressoReads
Keep in a Cold, Dark Place - Michael F. Stewart

Keep in a Cold, Dark Place by Michael F Steward is an irrestible story and I knew I had to have it. I mean…look at the cutie on the cover, with those eyes pleading at me to let out of the burlap bag it has been stuffed in.

Publication date: May 18th 2017
Genres: Horror, Middle-Grade

 

MY REVIEW

 

The cover for Keep In A Cold Dark Place by Michael F Stewart is sooo good, I knew I had to read this. I immediately thought of Gremlins and figured I was in for one hell of an adventure…and I was right.

 

Limpy is a poor young girl with large dreams. I get very angry over the way most people treat her. It takes all kinds to make up this world, and she does more than her fair share. Here dead mother haunts her thoughts. She is devoted to her family and her art. Her creativity and originality would probably make her millions in the read world.

 

BUT…there are no monsters in the real world…are there? I was pleasantly surprised at what the monsters are and don’t want to spoil it, so I’m not going to tell you. For all you horror lovers, you DO want to know. I mean, just the title, Keep In A Cold Dark Place, is ominous, telling us there will be death and mayhem between ‘the pages’.

 

Michael F Stewart did a fabulous job with the writing and world he created. I felt anger and fear, worry and hope, and I was pretty sure the humans would prevail. I just wasn’t sure what humans would be left standing.

 

Lots of action and suspense kept me reading this cute and terrifying coming of age horror tale for Limpy and her family, friends and neighbors.

Giveaway – Breakwater by Catherine Jones Payne @cjonespayne @YABoundToursPR
Breakwater - Catherine Jones Payne

I love mermaids, so I was very excited to get my hands on this one.

 

I love the fabulous cover…and the story inside.

Genre: YA Fantasy/Mermaids
Release Date: May 30th 2017
Fathom Ink Press

 

MY REVIEW

 

I love the gorgeous cover for Breakwater by Catherine Joyce Payne.

 

Oh…to be able to fly through the sea, jump with the dolphins, skim the sandy bottom of the ocean…

 

The writing is spectacular, so creative and descriptive that I am able to visualize things and they play like a movie in my ming. Imagine, if you will, a feeder being surrounded by sea horses instead of hummingbirds. Your garden is full of colorful coral instead of flamboyant flowers.

 

A dead naiad is the reason for Jade’s wedding being cancelled…by her.

 

“I’m here to report a murder.” – Jade.

 

The murder has drawn lines in the sand and there are threats and danger at every turn.

 

Jade is from a high caste in the mer society, unaware of the reality of life for those less fortunate than her. She wants to do the right thing, is friendly with those from a lower caste than herself and begins to learn that there is so much more to life than she ever thought possible.

The mers are the same as us, yet different…love, hate, political intrigue, betrayal, murder..Even mers face hard choices and sacrifice.

 

What a fabulous storyline. I didn’t anticipate the direction Catherine Joyce Payne would take with the story and I am loving everything, amazed at the originality and detailed descriptions.

 

The mystery is solved, but there is so much more of the story to be told and I am curious to see how Jade grows and develops.
