Palatine: The Four Emperors Series- Book 1 by L.J. Trafford
Palatine: The Four Emperors Series, Book I (The Karnac Library) - L. J. Trafford

I enjoyed this book so much mainly because you get to witness the era of Nero, his downfall and the beginning of the year of four emperors through the eyes of several characters including a stuffy praetorian prefect, several lowly slaves who dwell in the background, but see plenty, Nero, Sporus, the guards, and several nobles. Looking forward to see what happens with Philo, one of my favorite characters in the book. Very entertaining, so much so, I flew through this book and can't wait to read the second one.

Tyrant: Rise of the Beast by Brian Godawa
Tyrant: Rise of the Beast (Chronicles of the Apocalypse Book 1) - Brian Godawa

Although I do not hold to the preterist view of Revelation that the author does, this book was very compelling and quickly drew me in. My only critique is that is was too short, (it ends at 50% and the rest is an appendix), but the appendix did hold a wealth of information that was just as fascinating!
A great start to a new trilogy which follows after the Chronicles of the Nephilim series.
Highly recommended!

Cyclops Road by Jeff Strand
Cyclops Road - Jeff Strand

Evan Portin has just lost his wife and is having a very bad day at work. But he comes upon a woman being mugged and finds that she doesn't need his help.

Harriet is a strange one for sure. She's never been in a car or seen a cellphone. Safe to say she's been pretty isolated. Oh, and she's on her way to kill a cyclops.

I know, right? Someone has a few screws loose. Maybe...?

Follow Evan as he takes the ride of his life.

 

 

I found this book entertaining as all get out, and unique, and very funny! I loved it! It was very different from the usual Strand novels. Can't say much more so I don't give anything away. I definitely recommend it though. It's not actually horror. I would put it more in the fantasy, sci-fi category.

 

4 stars

The Last Valkyrie by Jeremy Robinson
The Last Valkyrie - Jeremy Robinson,Tori Paquette

Excited to be going back to the world of Antarktos! Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading Antarktos Rising and, one of my all time favorites, The Last Hunter.


This is the story of Solomon's daughters, Aquila and Norah, as they learn to fight and survive the underground realm of Antarktos when Aquila is taken by the Nephilim, who want to turn her into a hunter. Norah must overcome her fear of inadequacy in order to save her sister and on the way, learn about her amazing power.

 

Highly recommend (the whole series)!

Damaged by Troy McCombs
Damaged - Troy McCombs

This is a cautionary tale about bullying. Adam is a 16 year old kid who is constantly bullied and tortured at school to where eventually, two distinct events in his life sends him over the edge and causes him to commit monstrous acts.

 

Despite his horrible acts, you kind of tend to feel sorry for the guy. I thought the author portrayed his feelings of loneliness and despair quite well, and what would lead someone to finally break. It's a shameful thing that this happens quite often at schools around the country.

 

The book needs editing, but the story kept me engaged the entire time, so it really didn't bother me enough. The book contains foul language, violence and some acts of torture, for those of you who don't care for that in a book. Otherwise, this is a story that you would find at least once in almost every school, except most wouldn't go to the extreme that Adam went through in the book for revenge.
