DESCRIPTION:

"Demons, jinn, possession, sinister artifacts, and gruesome archaeological discoveries haunt the pages of the new book by Dr. Heather Lynn. Evil Archaeology investigates the archaeological record for artifacts and evidence of evil entities, revealing how demons from the ancient world may be dwelling among us. It also looks at the history and lore behind real relics, believed to be haunted, and includes historical accounts of demonic possession, as far back as the accounts of King Solomon invoking demons to help him build his famed Temple. Is there really a prehistoric fertility goddess figure that has been known to bring death to the families of anyone who holds it? Are there real vampire graveyards? Can the archaeological record prove the existence of demons and malevolent entities? Some tantalizing questions Evil Archaeology addresses include: •What is the origin of demons? •What role did Sumerian demons play in the development of civilization? •Are curses real? Can material objects contain evil? What about places? •What can we do to protect ourselves, according to historical records? •Was Jesus an exorcist? If this sounds all too disturbing, try not to worry. Evil Archaeology also includes ways to protect yourself and loved ones against malevolent forces, as well as practical advice from experienced exorcists and demonologists."

REVIEW:

 

For a book titled "Evil Archaeology", it contains minimal information about archaeology or archaeological find, but does include a hodge-podge of stories about demons, pagan-deities, demonic possessions, and relics.  Some of the stories were interesting, like the Mesopotamian Toilet Demon and hypotheses about the reasons for trepannation and the creation of "gods/demons" by humans to deal with stressful situations like civilization.  But after a while the run-on collection of summaries about ancient/pagan deities, demonic possession anecdotes, summaries of gruesome archaeological find, fictional scenes and references to films and the like just got tedious.  The organization of the book was somewhat erratic and the author wasn't clear about her overarching hypothesis (if she had one).  At the end I couldn't determine if she was trying to find evidence that demons and gods were created by humans or if they actually exist or if she was just listing a bunch of things she found interesting.  I'm so happy I didn't impulse buy this at the bookshop and borrowed a library copy instead. This was a particularly disappointing read.

"Many passages in the Babylonian Talmud warn against "Shed Bet ha-Kis,", the "toilet demon".  



The Mesopotamians had a toilet demon.  Who knew?!!

Riled by Heather Slade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It's been a while since I escaped into a Heather Slade novel. Riled is my second jump back into the phenom that is Heather Slade. Rile and Kensington have me wondering why I have waited so long. The thrill of the chase. The jolt to your heart and the allure of falling in lust before love. There is no escaping once you give your emotions over to this amazing author.

Undercover Agent by Heather Slade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Flirting with danger has never felt so sweet. Undercover Agent pulls emotions in a number of directions. Sometimes it's hard to keep up. Heather Slade has crafted an adrenaline rush that pulls the heart along on the ride. Lynx and Emerson are a hot mess. Intriguing though that may be. When past history gets in the way of present danger, will they survive the fallout? Edge of your seat romance.

The Sweet Spot
The Sweet Spot - Heather Heyford

Hank owns his family's winery that his been in his family for decades. Jamie is a music teacher from Philly that just got a big promotion (but does she really want it?). Jamie's a big wine fan and travels to OR for a getaway at her favorite winery- The Sweet Spot.
While I liked the writing and learning about wine, the romance was so slow paced. I think this could have been shorter. Hank was frustrating- he blew hot and cold and I don't think he even knew what he wanted (until the end of the book of course). He was also very bland and didn't have much personality. One moment he was keeping the winery and the next he was selling it. He was unhappy on moment and the next not. I really didn't understand or believe their romance/attraction.
Jamie was a little better. She was settled- or thought she was. She made the necessary changes to her life to make things happen.
