Review: The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic by Luis Robles
The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic - Luis Robles

The Watcher: And the Origins of Magic is the first book in the two book series The Gates of Oblivion by Luis Robles. This is the story of Bliss, the last Child of Power.

Plot 4/5: I thought the plot was interesting.
Characters 4/5: I loved Bliss and Pah.
World building 3/5: I thought the world building could have used a bit more detail.
Pacing 4/5: The pacing was steady with spurts of action.
Writing 2/5: This book has a lot of potential, though I feel this book could have used better editing.

Overall 3.4

Purchased from Amazon.

New Release Review! Bloodline Origins (Bloodline Trilogy #1) Juliana Foos!
Bloodline Origins - Juliana Foos

 

 

Determined to turn her fantasy into reality, Ana starts her journey to become a vampire. Along the way, she learns the truth about their secret society, discovers her prestigious bloodline, and falls in love.

Not all vampires are accepting of humans and war looms in the shadows. An ancient tome reveals the vampires’ alien descent and sparks war.

An army bent on eradicating her coven’s existence threatens her new world. Survival or annihilation will be in Ana’s hands. 

 

 

Bloodline Origins is a steady paced story that is chock full of emotional turmoil and intense decision making that results in major life changes that keep readers engaged in the story from the very beginning. Ana’s fantasy may be coming to life but it’s not all sunshine and roses and during her journey she also has to deal with the emotions involved when falling in love, she will have to deal with learning secrets that impact the decision she’s making and the consequences of her decisions which keeps the readers glued to the pages as they follow her progress.

 

The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers in to their story while the spine tingling intrigue keeps readers on the edge of their seats and wondering what will happen next. The author brings her story to life with vivid imagery, some unique elements that keep the story from being a typical vampire story and her captivating characters that ensure that I want to read the next book in the trilogy.  The first book has a great ending that provides lots of information but ensures that readers know the complete story is to be continued.

 

 

Bloodline Origins is the first book in the Bloodline Trilogy.

 

Bloodline Origins is available in ebook at:

Amazon

 

Juliana Foos can be found at:

Just not feeling this
Judge Dredd Origins - Brian Bolland,Carlos Ezquerra,John Wagner,Kev Walker

It was so depressing and  I'm feeling nervous today.  I just wanted to finish it, and I was interested in the history of how Mega City One came about, so I kept with it.   Very uneven for me; some parts were fascinating and some were less engaging for me. 

 

The art wasn't my favorite, either.

The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences
The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on t... The Ghost Studies: New Perspectives on the Origins of Paranormal Experiences - Brandon Massullo The Ghost Studies was an interesting read. One that I definitely scribbled in, ear-marked pages, and all that stuff you do when you want to cross-reference and remember things. The author makes a lot of salient points, and a lot of times I found myself sitting back and just reconsidering things I had previously brushed off.

It was also, truth be told, a difficult book for me to read. Not because it was bad, but because it oftentimes required more concentration than I was capable of. This is not a book you want to skim. You want to sit down with it when you have the time to truly pay attention to it, and the ability to concentrate on what the author is saying.

I think my favorite topic was that of quantum entanglement. I hadn't heard of it before I started this book, and, funnily enough, right before I got to the section in The Ghost Studies, I read a book involving it for the first time. (I read multiple books at once, if that sentence confused anyone.) The section on EMF was very interesting as well.

Now, I won't say that this has influenced my belief (or lack thereof) in ghosts one way or another, but I definitely enjoyed the way it made me think. I do wish the author had spent a little bit more time on the Not Everything is Paranormal section, though. I felt like that one skimmed a bit.

Overall, a good read but not a quick one. Whether you're a skeptic or a believer, I think you'll find something interesting about paranormal experiences in The Ghost Studies.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review consideration.
