The Ark Of Asylum by Scott Kotrous
The Ark of Asylum (The Ark Series #1) - Scott Kotrous
First let me tell you how much this story got my mind racing and all agitated. The adrenaline rush left me exhausted but the story exploded with so much action made me wonder, could such abomination happen? The author penned issues the world is facing today and gave scenarios of how people feel about the government but the powerful message it carried were astonishing. If this book don’t motivate you or me with the mindset of a DOOMSDAY PREPPERS than you are a lost cause. The story started slow but it had its reason, what is it you ask? Everything is in the details, oh. . . wait did I say that right? The devil is hiding in the details, okay that sounds right, duh! For this particular tale it had to be explicitly detailed to fully grasp the what and why and how. Each occurrences made me think and contemplate, either what the hell? Anti this and anti that, when the @&%# hit the fan nothing matters but to survive or if you can survive. The ‘gold’ part was way out there however the author made it happen. The beginning crept slowly than the idea of a massive project to undertake only enhance the story further to a full blown wonderment. As I reached the middle part of the book I was enveloped into its belief maybe terrorist or (?) or (?) . Not to give anything away but moving towards the end of the story, “WOW.” Geez just perfect! The last few sentences at the end, hmm . . . all it takes is one, just one and “The Book of Revelation” comes into play. The characters were exciting, some more than others, well John I call him the founder of all in this story, complex, his views (hippie) but had his strong points. Did I enjoy it, 100%. Thank you to the author for the free digital download in exchange for an honest review and this is my honest review. You are an aspiring author, indeed. Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL NIGHTMARES BY: LAUREN HAMMOND
Beautiful Nightmares - Lauren Hammond

 

 

    Whoa. Lauren Hammond, you have screwed with my mind throughout this entire series, I seriously feel like my own sanity needs to be evaluated after reading this! You write insanity like no author I have read before, you have managed to suck me into your delusional world and made me question everything!

 

 

This kind of writing is outstanding. But there are things I am so very confused about. I don't know if that was deliberate play, just to leave so many questions unanswered in the supposed last book in the series. There was an exert at the end of the book though from what appeared to be Aurora's book. And I read in a review of this book that the author said some questions left unanswered in Adelaide's story will be answered in Aurora's. I just had no idea that this series was continuing on, I was under the impression going into reading Beautiful Nightmares that this was the final book in the series, so I was a little disappointed to still be so confused as to what the hell was real or not in the story.



I thought this would finally be the LONG awaited book of answers, and at only a little over 100 pages on my nook, and having had waited over a year for it, I was hoping for a little more than I had got. It was a little hard to get right back in to such a complex story after so much time having passed between books. I wish I would have reread the other 2 books before starting this one so it all would have been fresh in my mind. I suggest to other people to do just that, so you aren't playing catchup throughout most of this book like I was. I still have quite a few burning questions, mainly what the hell is the REAL story with Damien???!! I have a theory about this, but unfortunately that's all I have because Beautiful Nightmares raised more questions about the truth of Damien then it did answer them.



      Poor Adelaide's story just continued to get even more troubled and heart crushing than it was before. You definitely get a better understanding of what brought her to Oak Hill in the first place, and why her mind is as confused as it is. Sometimes the mind does funny things to protect you from a terrible reality. It's a defense mechanism.

 

 

Be prepared for some tears to flow. Adelaide's is one of the truly saddest stories I have ever read. The few glimpses of happiness for her were very short lived. This book, along with the others has thrown me for curveballs. I have been blindsided with hard truths throughout it all, and it only made the experience more enjoyable for me. While I am sad to see where Adelaide's story had ended, I am really excited to get more of Aurora's story in the future, and hopefully in turn finally find a few answers about Adelaide along the way.

 

 

Everything in this book screams bleak and unfortunate, from the dismal setting at Oak Hill Asylum, to Adelaide and her whole families story, or even her mental state. I honestly felt the dreariness coming off the pages!  I'm going to go find something cheery to do now, this book has left me feeling raw, slightly unhinged and a little forlorn. I need a Disney movie or something to balance myself out lol.

NightmarZ - Asylum by Irma Geddon
NightmarZ: Asylum - Irma Geddon

I obtained a copy of NightmarZ: Asylum through a free librarything giveaway. This review contains no spoilers.

 

Irma Geddon is writing the Z Series, a series of serial novels. The first of these is NightmarZ, which contains six episodes. The first, Asylum, is a quick 10,000 word novelette. If that sounds confusing, don’t worry; you’ll be able to just buy the individual “series” as complete novels once they’ve been written.

 

Read the full review over at Book Nouveau. Contains mild spoilers.

Asylum - K.A. Tucker In the second book of the Causal Enchantment series, it literally starts right where the last one ending… flipping between Sofie’s version and Evangeline’s version. So much happens within the first few pages of this book, I was SHOCKED by Cadan’s callous attitude, I figured he was lying, but he was just so GOOD at lying that for quite a while I actually believed him when he said he did whatever he had to in order to get out of Ratheus. We also get to meet Mage in this book, and I actually really liked her! She came off as a bit of a snob, but when she decides something she sticks to it, and she is a great ally to have because no one actually knows her whole story, but it is obvious she is very powerful. Evangeline and Julian are tucked away in a snowy fortress with Leo, the sweet old man who turns out to be more then a man. I will admit as much as I love Cadan and totally wanted a happily every after between him and Evanegline, Julian totally grew on me and well maybe a small part of my wanted something to happen between them… In this book, Evangeline is still way too trusting, but she is really starting to figure out that she shouldn’t trust so easily, but she still apparently likes to attract disaster… which is exactly how Evangeline, Julien and the werebeast Max ended up with basically the walking dead! This was a great follow up book to the first one, and I got so caught up in the story, that I think I actually finished it in less then a day regardless of the fact that I worked 8 hours. Totally worth reading!
