Cover Reveal - Chrysalis

 

 

 

Sheriff Peter Holbrook leads a simple life watching over the residents of Nowhere, Kansas, where the most noteworthy crimes are dognappings and brawls at the local tavern. He’s always had an inherent fear of the gray – the yearly spring storms that plague the area. Then one morning, a mysterious woman crashes her car just outside city limits. The tattooed stranger may not remember who she is, but Peter instantly feels a connection with her.

 

As the gray descends, the girl’s appearance isn’t the strangest event. Unusual behavior from the townsfolk, cattle mutilation, and death soon follow. Peter believes they are related, but only has a hunch and a prophecy from his deceased mother. With the mysteries piling up, Peter must rely on the help of their newest resident to save his sleepy town.

Review: Conduit
Conduit - Angie Martin

Conduit by Angie Martin has a great premise with an interesting blurb that will grab readers who are fans of suspense and thrillers, with a little supernatural on the side (if you think a character having ESP is considered supernatural). The first half of the story builds up the tension and lays the case for the female protagonist who becomes the obsession of a serial killer. But as the serial killer is revealed, the story takes a typical turn and is very planned in it’s execution, leading to a very uneventful and unsurprising end. Also the secondary characters, including Emily’s best friend and love interested aren’t that dimensional, including the serial killer David, who is pretty much like any other serial killer found in this type of book. But the time we reach the climax with Emily and David, my interest waned because the build up to their confrontation took too long.

 

Emily and her best friend Cassie, a former police officer own and operate their own investigation company. Emily is psychic and can tap into people’s emotions and feelings, which helps her on cases. One day something taps into Emily, causing her to do automatic writing against her will, falling into a blackness filled with fear and horror that makes her sick, including hearing faint voices crying out for help. The reason Emily has been targeted is because a serial killer is torturing and killing women, seven so far, in order to reach out to Emily who he bumped into one day at a coffee shop. David feels a connection with Emily since he’s also psychic, and in his sick mind is in love with her. Until Emily figures out who he is and where he is so they can be together, he’ll continue to torture and kill women until he and Emily are fully connected.

 

It takes Emily some time to realize David is calling out to her. She will help the police catch him, but it starts to take a toll on her. During this time she begins a romance with Jake, a man who works with her ex-boyfriend lawyer, which is a complication. Also, Jake has psychic tendencies also, which helps him get close to Emily, which in turn leads to them developing a sexual relationship. But as Emily gets closer to finding David, danger comes knocking on her door in the form of David who targets someone she loves, causing her to take a change and confront David on her own in order to save that person she loves, and stop this maniac before he kills again.

 

Conduit isn’t all that suspenseful or thrilling. It has that been there, done that feel. I just wasn’t engaged as I hoped for. David doesn’t have an outstanding seductive personality. He’s this phantom who whispers in Emily’s mind with the only purpose to hurt and kill women, and nothing else. His motivation mimics other types of serial killers found in romantic suspense. Also the way he accomplishes his crimes and his freedom to do so is very weak, and again has been used in many other types of books of this nature. David isn’t a Hannibal Lector by a long short, or even close to Chelsea Cain’s Gretchen Lowell. Those characters are superior disturbed monsters and serial killers done right.

 

Conduit’s wow factor is minimal, although the writing and character development had some merit. Emily is a heroine you can sympathize with, but she stuck in a story and a plot that has more fizzle than pop.

A thrilling read
The Boys Club: An action-packed suspense thriller - Angie Martin

I think Angie loves to give her readers a coma.... mine is still here, after finishing "The Boys Club" last night, leaving me unsure just how I should write this review.... I just don't have the words, still I'll try. Upon starting this thrilling read I was quickly thrown into this suspense filled, action packed, thrilling, adventure... I felt like I was inside this book from the start... Angie made her characters shine through, even with gritty pasts, dangerous jobs, they seemed real to me, even the secondary characters wheren't forgotten.

This book had me gripping the edges of my seat, until I had to turn the page, eyes glued to the words, entranced to the storyline, heart pumping.... Then the ending happened, throughout the book I thought I'd figured out the leak & it wasn't who I thought. What a brilliantly thoughtout book, I can't wait to read anything else from Angie in the future.

A captivating, thrilling ride
Conduit - Angie Martin

Holy cow, I'm still coming out of my "Conduit" coma... I'm unsure as to what to write & I finished reading the book over an hour ago. What a tremendously wicked mash up between suspense, thriller & paranormal, I got hooked into the world of Emily Monroe, drawn into the words Angie has poured into the pages. This book had me gripping the edges of my seat, until I had to turn the page, eyes glued to the words, entranced to the storyline, heart pumping.... wishing for it to be over but at the same time to never finish.

I can't wait to see what else is in store for Emily Monroe. What other drama, mystery, suspense & intrigue can Angie write after this???

False Security
False Security - Angie Martin This novel was well-written and thought provoking. The first part of the book is about Rachel Thomas, a girl who keeps multiple locks on her door, teaches women self-defense, and keeps a loaded gun in the house. She believes that she jeopardizes the life of any and all of her friends so she keeps relationships to a minimum. But what to do about the cute book shop owner she has fallen in love with?

The second part of the book goes back to the beginning of Rachel's strange life after her parents were killed in a car accident, and why there are scars on her back.

The third and last part of the book comes back to the present and introduces us to the horror who wants to control her. The action continues to the very last page.

Highly recommended for those who love a good suspense book.

The author gave me a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
