Review – The Company Store by H D Gordon @hd_gordon
The Company Store - H D Gordon

All ages will enjoy this dystopian tale of Earth and the characters that fill the pages. Some I love and some I hate, but they entered my life and I feel I will benefit from knowing them.

 

Will you?

 

I borrowed this book from my sister, Laura at fuonlyknew, and I want to thank her for sharing with me.

MY REVIEW

 

I have read most of H D Gordon’s work and The Company Store is another fabulous tale with rich characters and a storyline that will stick with me for a long, long time. The Company Store reads as if it could be a history of the world. The greed that corrupts and taints everything it touches. The destruction of the forest and oceans. The death and extinction of the amazing animals that inhabit it. The people, good and bad. Some will sacrifice everything to have what they believe is theirs (the 1%). Some will sacrifice everything to save the ones they love, the weak and poor. Does any of this sound familiar to you? I thought I knew how this would go…and I did, to a point. The surprise ending put a smile on my face and gave me hope.

GOODREADS BLURB:  Thanks to the greed of man, Earth is dying. Climate change and human greed has wrought mass destruction over the planet, and a fraction of the population remains. The Company Store controls the last civilization, known as the Single Nation Circle. Those outside the Circle are Outliers, outcasts and gangsters who do whatever it takes to survive. Samuel Poe is the 18-year-old leader of the Poe Boys, the Northern Outlier gang. With resources ever dwindling, Sam knows he must be the toughest of the dogs fighting over the scraps if he hopes to keep himself and his people alive. When Sam meets Anna Rose, daughter of Mr. Company, the most powerful man in the dying world, he finds himself in a deadly race toward resources and a new life. Much like those of their ancestors, the choices of the two star-crossed teenagers will echo through the ages, the fate of the human race resting on their shoulders.

MY REVIEW

 

The Halfling by H D Gordon is the first book in The Aria Fae Series, a paranormal fantasy that exceeded my expectations with fantastic writing and characters that grabbed hold of me and wouldn’t let go.

 

Aria knew she couldn’t run from her past, but here she is, in a new place. She is a skate board riding Fae, part of the Brokers, an organization of Halflings, half supernatural and half human. She is an empath and I cannot imagine how difficult that would be in high school. Her empathy and need to help gets her in trouble, but I love her for it. How can I resist a strong character who marches to her own drum?

 

She meets up with Sam, a girl hacker who becomes her BFF and it changes everything. I love the little nerd, Sam, who is your typical teenager…except for her supernatural skills. I love the connection that brought them together, but you will need to find out for yourself. The girls fun personalities and watching them grow and blossom as they create their family kept me on pins and needles as I kept waiting for the bad to happen. I know it has to come, but I love these kids so much I don’t want anything to happen to them.

 

Thomas Reid is a hottie and I think he is holding a secret that will add more to the suspense.

 

H D Gordon can take a familiar theme and twist it so creatively that it becomes fresh and original. Her descriptive writing makes the story seem real and I am unable to resist being drawn in deeper with each page I read. The Halfling has so much that I love, the paranormal, fantasy, determined women (albeit young ones) and so much more. As the story grows, so too does the suspense and mystery. I never saw where this was going and I love when a book exceeds my expectations. I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

 

I received an ARC of Halfling by H D Gordon in return for an honest review.

{Review} Santa's Little Helper by H.D. Gordon
Santa's Little Helper - H. D. Gordon

 Santa’s Little Helper is a fab read and something a little different for author H D Gordon. I don’t really want to say too much about the plot but I will have to try and not make it too spoilery.
The story revolves around 5 children – Manny, Michael, Emily, Benny & Tuck – all 4 or 5 yrs of age and from various families backgrounds which includes some issues such as domestic violence, single mother bringing up a child alone, a father that works away and a child whose parents think he has special needs. They make an interesting bunch of characters and I wasn’t the only one interested in them….. Out of the blue, each child receives a white box… and in that box is a red book that tells the story of the Elf that accompanies the book in the box. For some reason, when each child is given the gift…they all want to be as far away as possible from it but are each made to keep it in one way or another. Each child knows that this elf is not what it seems, its sinister smile broadens, it moves unaided when you’re asleep and there is a tangible sense of evil infecting each family….the children are scared as the elf terrorises each child…. And each child knows that the teeth hidden under the façade of a jolly face are used to eat more than candy canes… he eats children! And these 5 are his prey… will they make it to Christmas day?
So, I loved this book and it definitely had a Stephen King feel to it.  I was a bit dubious about reading a book with 5yr old characters as the main focus but one thing the author is good at, is her younger characters - they all have an old soul feel to them and it’s clear to see how they would come to the attention of such evil. Their voices, feelings, thoughts and actions came across very well and they did indeed make for a great read. I loved the storyline and it is different to anything this author has done in the past but shows how she can put her hand to any genre. I liked the way the children’s chapters came across and were interspersed with chapters from their parents, giving the viewpoint of the child who was living the drama and the parent who was watching their child succumb to a living nightmare. We also got some good views of their home life which in some cases, is just as messed up as the situation they’re in. It all builds a very detailed picture of the way the evil affects each household. The Elf was a great way to inject the horror/suspense into the story, Elves are meant to be happy, cheery and super psyched for Christmas – well, you can forget that here – this elf is a force to be reckoned with and knows just how to pull on these children’s fears and the adults too. The atmosphere of the book is palpable and steadily gets darker & more sinister as each part passes, this is not a fluffy Christmas tale, it has horror, fear, anxiety, suspense and death all focussed around a group of kids that will hopefully beat their demons. Great read!

I found this thoroughly engrossing...and quite horrifying too.
Joe - H.D. Gordon

Synopsis:

 

From the author of the Alexa Montgomery Saga, comes a book that will take you into the mind of a genuine psychopath, the lives of six ordinary people, and the world of a very special girl named Joe.

Joe is seemingly an ordinary college student. She works, studies and reads. But in between these activities Joe has a gift that promises to add a dose of color to her life at any given moment. Joe sees things before they happen. Bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. Someone is planning a massacre at the college university that Joe attends, and the only person with a hope of stopping the psychopath is her.

Oh, the beauty of foresight. More like a curse. Joe has four days to figure out the mystery, make plans to take down the psycho, and save the lives of people. People like you and me. Ordinary people.

 

 

My Perception:

 

I love a good story steeped in reality with a splash of the supernatural added to it.   I have found lately that I cannot really get into a story if it is too fantastical.  This story had me hooked from the beginning, even with the 8 different POV's. 

 

Most everyone in the story has a voice including the villain.  It was disturbing to be inside the head of "The Decider" as he refers to himself in the story.   The evilness that is portrayed is chilling.

 

The story is told mostly, from Joe's POV.  She is sweet and geniune, and likable.  She has a stuttering problem, and she can see certain events that will happen in the future.  Sometimes we get glimpses into her past and see what has shaped her into the girl she is now.

 

I read a few reviews where they said they didn't like all the different pov's and it just made it more confusing.  I feel they added to the people that you felt vested in, and consequently, enjoyed it that much more.

 

This is Standalone book, with a complete ending; but there is second book in Joe Knowe Series.

Book Review ~ Joe (The Joe Knowe Series) by H.D. Gordon
Joe - H.D. Gordon

I am not going to recap what this book is about, because quite frankly, the synopsis sums it up pretty good.  With that being said.......

 

Joe is a must read!  Full of mystery, suspense and thrills, I simply could not put it down.  Although this story is told from the perspective of several different people, it flowed effortlessly.  Not once was I confused on what the heck was going on. From the very beginning, I really felt for Joe and was cheering her on.  She felt she was not a hero, but I disagree.  She was more than a hero and if there was a real ‘Joe’, I would give her a great big hug.

 

Ms. Gordon definitely has written a top-notch novel that not only was flawlessly written but the character development was fantastic.  The reader really starts to feel a connection to each character and can’t help but be drawn into their lives.  Although this story wrapped up nicely, the ending does leave an opening for the second book in this series, Joe 2, White Sheets.

 

I highly recommend Joe if you love a good psychological thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat with non-stop action and suspense. 

 

*I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
