Review – The Future Is Now – Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef @JeffAltabef @novelpublicity
Fracture Point (A Point Thriller Book 1) - Jeff Altabef,Lane Diamond

Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef is not my first foray into his worlds and I can say for a fact that it will not be my last.

 

Fracture Point made me feel as if our future was held be

tween the pages…and it is frightening.

 

The release date is set for June 26, 2017.

 

Cover by D Robert Pease

 

Fracture Point

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

 Let me start by saying, make sure you have no plans…nowhere to go, nothing to do…because once you start reading, Fracture Point will take you down a path that will not let you go until the last word is read.

 

Is this what the future holds for us?

 

Warren Scott, well, he got my attention from the opening chapter and I felt nothing good was going to come from knowing him. He has a secret and he won’t share…yet. There is nothing he won’t do to win and revels in the evil he doles out to anyone who crosses him…or sometimes just because it feels good. Psychopath is too nice a word for him.

 

Jack is working a banquet for the richy rich and was hooking up with one of their wives. He was after info, but got more than he bargained for when he found a flash drive.

 

Once their paths cross, others become involved in the race to save Jack’s life and their own, running at a frenetic pace, making me worry and fret, wondering who will survive.

 

Fracture Point is a frightening glimpse into America’s future…voters rights taken away, the poor are discounted as lesser human beings, and terrorism is used to create fear and manipulate the people. Does any of this ring a bell?

 

They are at a Fracture Point, the point where a spark can set their world ablaze.

 

Fracture Point hits all the buttons for a heart pumping, blood boiling, terrorizing suspense thriller that smacks of realism, with big business and the 1% taking everything and leaving nothing for the 99% struggling to survive.

 

Is this what OUR world is coming to? Will it take a Civil War to wake up the leaders? What happens when the American Dream is dead, there is no hope left and we feel backed into a corner with nothing to lose?

 

CAUTION – Kindle is at risk of being thrown.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Fracture Point by Jeff Altabef.

GOODREADS BLURB

 

A mysterious scarlet haired jazz singer.


A rebel on a motorcycle.


And a killer with a penchant for torture.

 

Food is scarce, good jobs the rarity, and big brother is watching everyone. Will Jack and Tom’s family be torn apart in the mayhem, and how far will one brother go to save the other’s life?

 

In 2041, America is rife with ghettos and armed checkpoints, and poverty runs rampant.

 

A bloody civil war is brewing, and everyone will be forced to take a side. Education is the only way out of a life where you’re never sure where your next meal will come from, or what you’ll have to do to get it. Tom aced his assessment tests and scored an education contract, giving him a way out of poverty. Jack isn’t so lucky.

 

When Jack, a spy for a rebel fraction, goes missing, only his brother Tom can unravel the mystery of his disappearance. He will risk everything to save his brother from Warren, a killer who enjoys torturing his victims and making them beg for mercy. On a mission, Tom plunges into a world filled with mystery and danger. When he also discovers that his family has been keeping secrets from him—secrets that threaten to doom them all—he doesn’t know whom to trust.

 

Tom must break every rule he’s lived by, and go head-to-head with a psychopath if he’s to have any chance of saving his brother—and just maybe, keep America from reaching the fracture point.

One + One = Three by Jane Blythe @jblytheauthor
Three (Count to Ten) (Volume 3) - Jane Blythe

Jayne Blythe is a fabulous author who writes some chillin’ and thrillin’ serial killer novels.

Three by Jane Blythe has a cover that blends with the others creating a brand. Scroll to the bottom to see what I mean.

 

Check this beauty out, done by Amy Queau, and let me know what ya think.

 

Three (Count to Ten #3)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Warning:  ** All Jane’s books contain issues of sexual assault **.

 

I love when I am hooked early, anticipating the worst with each ‘turn of the page.’

 

Excited to bring together vicious killers from One and Two, culminating in a big fat delicious Three.

 

HE loves the thrill of killing newlyweds, couples, leaving one alive to tell the tale. The more vicious the attack, the better. Brutal, savage killing. Blood and body parts flying every which way.

 

SHE is a teenage virgin, but uses sex to lure in her victims. How sick is that? Killing is her purpose in life. Kill the cheaters, thinks Isabella Everette.

 

Sofia is recovering from Isabella’s attack and loving on her hunky Detective boyfriend, Ryan Xander. They each have their baggage, but have found they are stronger together.

 

The two serial killers have left a trail of bodies in their wake, but now they are home…

I know one thing. If I were Sofia or Annabelle, Ricky’s significant other, I would not be alone. I have read enough horror, of one kind or another, to know I’d at least have me some fierce looking dogs at my side. Some trained, mean and deadly ones.

 

The women are severely damaged, emotionally and physically and I like having the thought they will rise to the occasion when cornered. I look forward to finding out.

 

I am trying to ‘see’ where Jane Blythe is going with these deadly serial killers. I know certain things will have to happen…and no, I’m not telling you what.

 

And then…Sofia’s stalker returns. That is a story in itself. That is the bigger mystery to me. I have yet to figure out who it is!

 

Each character share their point of view, and I like seeing events unfold through each person’s eyes. And…as the characters come together…so do the serial killers. The action rises to a white knuckled ending that had me racing through the pages. I knew a lot of bodies would fall, but I never saw it going down the way it did.

 

I love delving into a killer’s mind and there’s something extra interesting about serial killers. Their thoughts and actions, even when fiction, fascinate me. I love when the author takes me to a dark, brutal and savage place, and Jane surely does that in the twisted series, of which I have read One, Two, and Three.

 

WOW! Action packed thrills and chills, blood and guts fly, and the killers carry their acts to the extreme. No one is safe, yet I am happy to be here.

GOODREADS

 

He targets couples, attacking them in their bed, killing one and leaving the other alive.

 

She targets wealthy businessmen, luring them to a hotel and drowning them.

 

When the two killers meet up a wild killing spree erupts.

 

** All my books contain issues of sexual assault **

Tag Team Event Giveaway – Ruined Wings by Ashley Fontainne @AshleyFontainne
Ruined Wings - Ashley Fontainne

Ashley Fontainne is a master storyteller and I am not surprised that Ruined Wings, a novella, has been picked up for film.

 

You can get it free on Amazon.

 

OR, if you would like a couple of chances to win an audio version, check out the link below.

 

 

To me, this cover speaks of despair and hope and I love the black and white image done by One of a Kind Covers by Ashley Fontainne.

 

Ruined Wings

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Ashley Fontainne is a master storyteller and I am always on the lookout for another story from her.

Ruined Wings…I love that the cover shows the despair and hope that is contained between ‘the pages’. It makes me wonder which will prevail.

 

 

A lot was riding on the day for Callie, but something felt wrong to her. I knew something bad was coming and her life would be changed forever.

 

DRUGS…ADDICTION…whether legal or illegal drugs, addiction is addiction. The destruction it brings into a family is horrific. The loss of a loved one can make something you thought was so important, inconsequential.

 

I love Callie, a flawed, yet strong, focused, determined seventeen year old girl who cannot accept her loss…who can’t move on.

 

The descent into hell is slow, seductive, and I did not see it going down this way. I love that Ashley Fontainne can always pull a trick or two out of her hat to keep me on my toes.

 

This sad, and realistic tale reads like a true story.

 

Ashley’s writing will reach into your heart and gut, and rip them out! Ruined Wings reads like a true story.

 

Once you start, you won’t be able to stop reading. Unputdownable. Gut wrenching. Tragic, yet hopeful.

Early Review – No Surrender by Patrick Bisher with Jon Land #PatrickBisher @jondland
No Surrender: Faith, Family, and Finding Your Way - Patrick Bisher,Jon Land

No Surrender by Patrick Bisher & Jon Land was not what I expected, but so much more than I anticipated.

 

The true story is disheartening and uplifting, emotions flitting through the pages like butterflies through the air, leaving me feeling like all things are possible.

 

This is an early review and the book is up for preorder, releasing July 4, 2017.

This is one you won’t want to miss.

 

No Surrender: Faith, Family, and Finding Your Way

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Patrick Bisher’s true story is all about overcoming hardship and finding his true path in life. His determination and perseverance can be an inspiration to us all, giving us hope and encouragement to dream and reach for it.

 

Michigan is my home state, so knowing Patrick is a fellow Michigander made me want to know his story even more. He is an amazing  man with a story to share that we can all walk away from being better off for knowing it.

 

Imagine, as a child, a 9 year old boy, hearing, “You’ll never be able to walk again.” When I read that, the first thought to pop into my mind was One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

 

At the end of each chapter is an inspirational summary of ‘What you can learn from this.’

 

Patrick takes us from a childhood of bullying, harassment, despair and pain, to an adulthood filled with hope and determination and a desire to inspire and uplift. He is dealt blow after blow, struggling to find his way through every setback. Even when he is lost, he finds an inner strength.

 

Life is full of surprises and the road twists and turns, a journey we must all take, but there is no straight line.

 

Funny that he also tasted the General Motors life and found it lacking. I worked there for fifteen years and took early retirement because I wanted more. It felt like a prison to me and I had to spread my wings. Sometimes we have to take a leap of faith. No risk, no reward.

 

I totally agree with his final chapter and it concerns me for our country’s future.

 

Patrick believes in Paying It Forward. His story takes us from him being bullied and labeled as a cripple who would never amount to anything, to being a Navy SEAL, when everyone said it wasn’t possible, to giving back to all those who need a little help in achieving their goals and desires.

 

Believe…believe in yourself.

 

I felt so good after reading No Surrender and I want to thank Patrick for his service to our country and his willingness to share what he has learned with all of us.

Are We Facing Extinction? Dark Light Dawn by Jon Land & Fabrizio Boccardi @jondland
Dark Light: Dawn - Jon Land

Jon Land has been a go to author for me from way back.

 

He is stepping outside his comfort zone in Dark Light Dawn, a horror thriller, and I am super excited to find out…

 

This is an early review and the book is now up for pre order and will be released August 1, 2017.

 

Dark Light: Dawn

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I have been a huge fan of Jon Land’s for many years and I am always eager to pick up another one of his novels.

 

Dark Light Dawn is a new genre for Jon Land and he has outdone himself. The opening is the hook, slowly reeling me in character by character, event by event, a war between good and evil ravages the world, innocents and guilty alike falling in agony.

 

Jon Land keeps the mystery going, slowly sharing pieces of what brought the world to this cataclysmic place, making it impossible for me to put the book down. Will anyone survive? Are we facing extinction?

 

The story is told from multiple points of view and I enjoyed seeing each character’s perspective and motivation.

 

It all began with Ben Younger…

 

Ben Younger and his partner, Dale Denton, are drilling oil, or at least trying to, on the impact crater of The Big Bang. Is it cursed, or is the Mexican way of doing business too costly. I guess that tells us there will be surprising developments arising.

 

Will arrogance and greed be Dale Denton’s downfall?

 

Max Younger, Ben’s son was in the fight of his life in Yemen. He functioned as if a man in auto mode, like he has a sixth sense. NOW, he’s in an even bigger fight and there is so much more at stake than just his life.

 

Vicky is a wiz with disease, having worked for the CDC and WHO and is called to Jordan.

 

Al-Qadir in Iraq, is a ruthless savage, hell bent on torturing and killing all those  who oppose him.

 

Science fiction, religious, paranormal and supernatural, horror…you decide.

 

The minute I thought I had everything figured out, the worst is over…

 

Holy Moly, what can I say?

 

The tension goes on and on and on and one.

 

Dark Light Dawn by Jon Land filled me with so many emotions, I was spent by the time I read the last word….but, please Jon….I WANT MORE!

 

Amazing! Mind shattering!
