The Mothman’s Story is Complete – A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair @MaeClair1
A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant) - Mae C... A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant) - Mae Clair

A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair is the final story of The Mothman and Point Pleasant series.

 

If you love creature features and ‘true’ myths and legends, this series is for you.

 

Preorder for July 18, 2017 release.

 

 

A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant, #3)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

This is the third book in the series, and the finale, so I will do my best to not include spoilers. Just make you want to run right out and buy this mystery series. If you are a creature feature lover, like me, this will be a must read collection you want on your reading shelf.

 

It’s nice to be back in Point Pleasant, with familiar friends and monsters, waiting for the next adventure to begin.

 

Book II left me feeling so sad for Mothman and I worry about what will become of him. He has lived for A Thousand Yesteryears, the only one of his kind.

 

The Ouija Board had foretold QM would become a part of Sarah’s life. WTH is QM?

The curse brought HIM to Point Pleasant.

 

Caden is a cop in Point Pleasant and knows the Mothman, and others, that I won’t speak about. You’ll have to meet them all yourself…and you might want to have someone with you when you do.

 

Lach is back and there is always trouble when he makes an appearance.

 

Stone amulets…a deadly blade…a curse

 

Shawn and Preech will play their part as the curse rises from the past, demanding retribution. You can never escape the past…innocent or guilty, it just doesn’t matter.

 

A Desolate Hour, great title by the way, has an aura of menace from the beginning.

 

“A Desolate Hour when a tear in time renders past and present in one.” How can that be anything but bad news?

 

When Mothman vanishes for long periods of time and everything is normal in Point Pleasant, I wonder where he goes, what he’s doing. He didn’t ask for his fate. Alone. Isolated. Angry. Suffering.

 

As the people and forces in Point Pleasant draw together, it is ‘the culmination of A Desolate Hour’, and the door closes on the Mothman’s story. Mae Clair did a bang up job with the ending, leaving me satisfied, but…

 

I am so sad to be leaving Point Pleasant and the marvelous characters and adventure I have had, but I do not despair. I know Mae Clair has another marvelous story up her sleeve and I aim to get my hands on it.

 

If you are a creature feature lover, if you crave reading about myths and legends, if you like to be scared and surprised, run and soar through the air, this is one series you don’t want to miss.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair.

MY REVIEW

 

How does the magical community spend Christmas? Well, they don’t scrub the floors. A simple wave of their had and the house is clean. I would love to be able to do that too.

BUT, Chris isn’t supposed to use magic. He’s a witch, so, like Harry Potter, he feels the need to test his abilities. He’s ahead of his class and easily bored. If he doesn’t quit getting in magical trouble, they’ll strip his powers and send him to human school.

 

He hates everything about Christmas, except his birthday, until….

 

He meets Nichole.

 

At first it’s fun and games, but when Nichole asks Chris for his help, he drops everything.

 

This sweet and innocent romance shares young puppy love, wonder and adventure, traveling the world through magic, flying through the air in Nichole’s Lamborghini.

What a sight to see.

 

In the magical realm, all things are possible, which is why I love to read about the paranormal and supernatural, and C K Dawn has done a wonderful creating a world of imagination and dreams that will entertain the young and old alike.

25 Myths That Are Destroying the Environment by Daniel B. Botkin
25 Myths That Are Destroying the Environment: What Many Environmentalists Believe and Why They Are Wrong - Daniel B. Botkin,Alfred Runte

TITLE:   25 Myths That Are Destroying the Environment: What Many Environmentalists Believe and Why They Are Wrong

 

AUTHOR:  Daniel B. Botkin

 

DATE PUBLISHED:  2017

 

FORMAT:  Paperback

 

ISBN-13:  978-1-4422-4492-4

 

 

25 Myths That Are Destroying the Environment is a book about ecology, the environment, nature and misleading information (myths) about these topics that circulate in both ecological and political discussions.  These myths often drive policy and opinion, and thus funding.  What may seem to be an environmentally conscious action on the one hand may very well be bringing about the unnatural destruction of habitats and ecosystems.  Daniel B. Botkin takes a look at these myths and explains why they are incorrect or misleading.  


The author takes a look at what has gone wrong with the environmental sciences.  He states that "much valuable and helpful research has been and continues to be done in the environmental sciences, but citizens need to be able to distinguish the good (and important) from the bad".  Botkin shows that the myths are alive, active and dominant in determining laws, policies, and action, and that they still form the basis of many major research projects.

The author's stated goal is to share with the reader what be believes we need to do, how we should think about the environment with people in it, and how to avoid the many pitfalls that plague attempts to solve environmental problems.  I believe that the author has achieved most of his stated goals with this book.  The book certainly provides food for thought and all politicians, policy makers, students (i.e. future policy makers and environmentalists) and the general public should read it.

Each chapter is dedicated to one myth, with a section at the end of each chapter that summaries what difference it make if we believe that particular myth.  The introductory chapter discusses why people are so attached to these myths.  This interesting book is easy to read and has numerous coloured photographs or diagrams for each chapter.

 

 


"Nature isn't just something out there that you visit in a park or zoo; it is what we live within.  We are not separate from nature; we are within it, and would not survive if we weren't."
-Daniel B.Botkin  [25 Myths That Are Destroying the Environment, 2017, pg 4].

Good info, perhaps too academic
"You're in the Wrong Bathroom!": And 20 ... "You're in the Wrong Bathroom!": And 20 Other Myths and Misconceptions About Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming People - Laura A. Jacobs,Laura Erickson-Schroth

As it is now LGBT Pride Month it seemed like this would be a good book to read. In light of the hysteria over transgender people using what bathrooms the title and book seemed quite apt for giving people much needed information. 

 

The book is basically what it says on the tin: the authors look at 21 myths about transgender people. Some are probably familiar to the reader: that transgender people use the "wrong" bathroom if they don't "look" a certain way, that transgender people are mentally ill and the like. And there might be some that are not so obvious: I had never heard of the concept that all transgender people all secretly want to be Barbie or Ken. 

 

So it was a learning experience. Backed by anecdotes, statistical data, research, and historical examples the authors go through and dismantle various myths. Overall the book was informative, even when I was already familiar with the myth. It's also relatively short so if you're looking for a primer for someone (a parent or a friend who wants more information) I think this might be a good pick.

 

There are also resources of sites, groups, organizations, legal resources, etc. that you may find helpful.

 

The only problem I had with the book was that the writing was quite dry and academic. My interest in the subject matter kept me going but I could really only read a few chapters at a time (and the chapters are really not that long at all from a few pages to maybe 7-8). The book runs less than 200 pages including the index, resources, citations, etc. but I personally found the text a little excruciating at times.

 

But that should not be a detriment. As I wrote it's a relatively short book so it shouldn't be too intimidating for a reader who is looking for more information. If you're more familiar with the subject and/or the specific myths addressed by the authors you may feel it's redundant to your own information so those with better/more in-depth knowledge may want to skim this first before deciding if you really want/need the book. But I definitely recommend reading it.
