My Review of Forge: Dawn of Trials
Forge: Dawn of Trials (The Chronicles of Tov: Forge Book 1) - Chan Martinez,James C. Cobb

Forge: Dawn of Trials by C S Cobb is a coming of age story of Forge and his rite of passage ritual in the Cave of Trials.

 

This story has potential, but the execution left a lot to be desired. I felt as though the author was writing to middle grade children for several chapters, then suddenly writing to very young children, then back to middle grade kids. The tone of the writing was very inconsistent. The characters could have been better fleshed out. There were several grammatical errors, which interfered with my reading flow. There is a bit of a cliff-hanger, which wasn't too bad since the author gave clues that there would be such an ending. Overall, I feel this book is geared towards children 9-12.

The Brightest Sunset
The Brightest Sunset - Aly Martinez The Brightest Sunset - Aly Martinez
The Darkest Sunrise Duet definitely brings out the feelings, especially for a parent. I was very excited to read The Brightest Sunset. It picks up immediately where the other left off, in the middle of pure panic for everyone. There's lots of back and forth drama and some not so nice situations. Brady is all anger. Charlotte is an emotional rollercoaster. She almost seemed like the news broke her more than healed her. Porter is a nervous wreck. I had mixed thoughts on the characters behaviors and mostly felt sorry for the children. This author is good at moving the reader. Prepare to be affected.

The Day Job is Murder (McKinley Mysteries) by Carolyn Arnold
The Day Job is Murder - Carolyn Arnold,Lisa Dawn Martinez

This is a very short book. Only takes a couple of hours to read. It is kind of a love at first site story mixed with a rags to riches story. Being such a short story it does feel a bit rushed. Even though there is a murder it is a sweet story.

 

Sarah and Sean are cops and partners. They are in love with each other but Sarah is afraid to act on it. She is afraid if they were to break up it would ruin everything including their jobs. While investigating a murder Sarah who always reads the obits runs across a friend of Sean's in the newspaper. Sean goes to the funeral and learns he will be inheriting something.

Hell for the Company: Brimstone 1 (The Horns & Halos Series)
Hell for the Company: Brimstone 1 (The Horns & Halos Series) - Angel Martinez,Erika O Williams Anti-gravity cows were quite intriguing to read about. As for the story it was quite a quick read/listen. It didn't really grab and hold onto my attention as I would have liked it to have. I felt very detached from all the characters. Shax back story and why he left earth was in it's own way absorbing as was Ness's. I appreciated the author trying to inject some humor into the story and that there's no definite line between good and evil.

The narration was great. It was well paced and cleanly and clearly projected. I liked the personality Vance Bastian, the narrator, injected into each character and the distinction he made between each character. He really helped to bring the characters to life.
