Eva's Last Dance
Eva's Last Dance - Tracy Cooper-Posey

Loved the fact that Vampire & human can come together & then the dancing to keep them going.  Shame the book wasn't longer as I really enjoyed this book.

Eva was a tiny vampire that wanted to be looked after, & her lover was the one doing that. great story line that ended up with a great ending.

Nothing bad in this story.

Loved the fact that they danced a lot of the time.

Like being in an old film.

"Three -Legends of the Duskwalker #1" by Jay Posey - grim, moody, post-apocalyptic, warrior quest.
Three - Jay Posey

"Three" (is it just me, or that a confusing name for the first book in a trilogy?) is a grim, tense, violent book from the first page to the last.


"Three" is a mood rather than character driven book, heavy on atmosphere and light on introspection.This isn't one of those novels where the reader feels smart for spotting the world-building clues that the author seeds the text with and creating a deeply textured society. This is novel where the world doesn't feel the need to explain itself; you have to figure it out as best you can while every character you meet is trying to kill you. This is a world so unforgiving that a child asking "Momma, are we going to die today?" is stoic realism rather than high melodrama.


Part Western, part Samurai-turned-Ronin movie, part survival horror video game, "Three" tells the story of a lone warrior, in a bleak, post-apocalyptic world, who breaks his own survival code and takes a woman and her son under his protection and embarks on a quest to find the boy's father.


The warrior, who is called Three, for reasons that are never clearly explained, is so laconic that he makes The Man With No Name seem intoxicated with the exuberance of his own verbosity.


An intense, dangerous, loner who is constantly vigilant and frequently deadly, Three is a bounty hunter who relentlessly pursues his prey through the Weir-infested wastelands of ruined cities, surviving by the sword, the gun and total personal discipline. Unlike the "soft" civilized folk who live behind city walls and don't go out at night, Three is all hard shell and honed edges and walks where he pleases.


The woman and the boy Three chooses to protect are far from helpless. Helpless doesn't survive past dusk in this world. They are capable of great violence and would be formidable if they were not being hunted by people even scarier than they are.


Although this book is primarily an action adventure vehicle, the kind of thing that would make a summer blockbuster movie or a best-selling combat video game, it is lifted by its willingness to take on some big themes: the true nature of heroism (it's not bravery if you're not scared); the possibility of redemption by doing something for others that will make them carry you in their memory;  the importance of a living by a code; the rigour of vigilance born out of the inevitability of betrayal and the leavening effect of compassion.


If there is a message in all of this, it is that love makes you weak by giving you something to lose but the absence of love makes your strength hollow and futile.


Although this book was an engrossing read and I'll definitely be back for the rest of the series, I hope the next novels have more dialogue and less authorial voice. I picked up "Three" after reading Jay Posey's most recent book, "Outriders". In retrospect, I can see that that wasn't the ideal progression. Although "Three" is a remarkable debut novel, the thought that kept going through my mind was: "Wow, Jay Posey has learned a lot about writing dialogue in the three years between these two books."

Zoe's Blockade - Tracy Cooper-Posey

Okay I have one complaint, I WANT IT TO BE LONGER. I loved this story on the continuing Destiny's Trinity series. We have a new Trinity that consist of Zoe, Cole and Declan, and they have to be bonded quickly; we learn that this particular Trinity is quite different from the others. A surprisingly new paranormal is part of this group and before the end we have another surprise. Things are getting worse and the current groups are really working hard on locating the other Trinity's, while trying to keep up with the evil that is attacking the unaware human race. The three involved are really, and I mean really, taken by surprise and then top that off with the fact that it has to come to fruition quickly, as they come under attack. The Trinity's come together to fight them off and if they lose it could mean the end, for all the groups are needed to fight the evil. I really love the way you again meet characters from the previous Trinity stories; it's exciting to see them still involved and what they do to help. I try not to give spoilers but know I have to give you enough to grab and reel you in. If you love the paranormal you will love "Zoe's Blockade" and as for me, I can't wait to read the next story.

"Outriders" by Jay Posey - original, engaging, military SF
Outriders - Jay Posey

The Outriders of the title are a "death proof", very low profile, very hi-tech, special forces group on a future earth. They are sent to investigate events that may be co-incidence or may be covert attacks that could lead to the first war between Earth and Mars.


"Outriders" has the twisty plot of a good spy novel, lots of shiny futuristic military toys for search and destroy games, a team of cool soldiers who are both likeable and lethal and a story-telling pace that grabs hold of you from page one (where the main character, Lincoln Suh, dies) and doesn't let up until the end.


All of that would have been enough for me to read this book with a grin on my face and then set it aside but Jay Posey added a few things that made "Outriders" more than just a good military SF novel.


I found his calm, factual way of telling this tense and violent tale compelling. This high attention, low arousal approach to dealing with a crisis is exactly what I imagine to be necessary to do the kind of work the Outriders do. Lincoln Suh, the new officer trying earn the right to lead and experienced, established team, embodies this killer calm and  garnsihes it with an engaging mix of humour and self-deprication.


I also liked the way Posey brought out the similarities between the Outriders and the military/spy team that they are up against. Both teams are driven to achieve goals that they believe in through violence and destruction. Neither wants to cause harm to by-standers. Neither mistreats the people that they capture. Yet either team will shoot the other on sight with no hesitation.


James Lindgren does a great job of the narration, matching the controlled-calm of the text while still being able to keep the tension of the plot.


I've never read Jay Posey before but I'll be hitting his back-catalog soon, while I wait for the next "Outriders" to come out.


Go HERE to read an interview with  Jay Posey on how he cam e up with the ideas for "Outriders".

Samantha Posey: Love Unfolded
Romance: Romantic Suspense: Samantha Posey Love Unfolded: Love Unfolded-BWWM Contemporary Romance (Samantha Posey Love Series Book 1) - Shantee' Parks,Larita Brazil

Rating: Four

"Samantha Posey: Love Unfolded" by Shantee' A. Parks

My Thoughts...

I will say this was one read that kept me shaking my head because it seems to go on and on and then at the end we find it is a cliffhanger... the reader will have to get book 2 to get the remainder of Samantha and Jacob's story. I will say that this author really knows how to write some erotic sex scenes that will be in most of the chapters. I will say this was uniquely done and left me saying wow! Be ready for a story of 'love, lies, betrayal, mystery and yes even murder, loss of action, suspense and romance.'

I will say this novel has some very interesting characters especially the secondary ones [Nicki, Adam & Todd] that I found rather defined and well portrayed in this story line. The hero and heroine both at times will work ones last nerve with all of their bantering back and forth. This was definitely not one of those predictable stories because there is so many twist and turns but one thing is for sure and that is their love making! Will Samantha and Jacob have their HEA when it is all said and done? Will they be able to get pass this 'invisible bond' that they seem to have for each other? Well no matter what the odds or conflict that comes to Samantha and Jacob it seems certain their loves seems to conquer all....or will it? To get these answers and so much more you will have to pick up 'Samantha Posey Love Series Book 2' to get the rest of the story.
