Blood of Balnakin character card


Kalma: Alnenia turned her cran to one side and looked thoughtful. "It's the fourth day," she said to herself. "It is finally seeming to work." Her face told that she had come to a decision. "Yes, it is the time for truth." She sat back and smiled. "Know you anything," she asked, "about the Ming-ti plant?"

"No, I know not," I told her cold. "What is the Ming-ti plant?"

She picked up a skol-stick and tapped it nervously on her desk. "It really should be Doret or Elsbeth to explain it. What I know, they told me. The Ming-ti plant is a heaf that grows not natural on the Old Continent. It's one Doret ordered seeds for from Menzia. It's a powerful, ah, ah, well, when its leaves are dried and cooked into foods as spices or ground into powder and put into nectars, it, ah, ah," she smiled broad, "considerably enflames our natural drive to be speared. It creates a strong need, very strong, in women for a man-stalk bonding. In your case, the results should be very, very interesting."

"Interesting!" I thundered. "You've poisoned me and call that interesting! What mean you?"

Alnenia looked hurt and shook her head. "Poisoned? Oh no, there is nothing toxic in Ming-ti. The only possible trouble you could have is, well, if you were unable to act on the stimulus inside you. But," her smile returned, "your acting on it is the point. It is long past time for Malcolm to part your legs with full thrusts in between."

I stood and paced before her desk. Questions filled me, and the first was obvious.

"Have you others taken this Ming-ti?"

"No," Alnenia admitted. "We knew nothing of it until Doret spoke of it after our visit to the Mother-Icealt. None of us, ah, have ever needed the stimulus. We thought of experimenting with it, naturally. For Doret, she'd probably only need a very small amount. Then again, all Malcolm has to do is reach his hand up her tunic, play with her nipples, and irresistible shockwaves, well, you know. Or soon will."
She laughed. "Joline is about your body weight although not as strongly built or muscled." She laughed again. "But, then again, you'd only have to show Joline the plant, tell her of its purpose, and its effect would be complete on sight."

I stared at her. "So, how much of this Ming-ti is in my blood?"

Her eyes lit up. "That's what is extraordinary! Very, very extraordinary! Again, Doret can better answer your questions. Normally, I understand, one meal only is sufficient. You've —." She paused and looked at me in wonder." You should, by now, be unable to do anything else but think of being speared. I'm tempted to alert Yil and tell him to clear all males out of —."

"You'll do no such thing!" I exclaimed with full power, pulling her door open. "I am sufficiently disciplined and self-controlled to fight this poison! I will go find Doret and find a cure for this mean trick!"

Review: The Unsound Theory
The Unsound Theory - Emilia Zeeland

As you may have noticed, it has been a very slow year for me reading wise. Who knew having an infant and toddler to take care of full time would leave me little "me" time. The chronic sleep deprivation hasn't helped things either, but the plus side is that the few books I have managed to get to this year have been amazing. This one is no exception.


In true YA fashion, Yalena has a cryptic past that leads her on a journey to find both her origins and herself. This being the first book in the series, there is a lot of informative information and character introductions but it's a great lead in to what is sure to be a fantastic series. Yalena is an interesting character who surprised me a bit as she found her own voice in a sea of overachievers.


I really enjoyed the world building elements that Zeeland includes. Brief history lessons that you attend with Yalena and her classmates make this space world more and more interesting. Of course, what's a good novel without some romantic interests and competitive drama to keep things interesting. STAR Academy is a college level specialty school by invitation only. It is an elite group of students expected to become the next best thing in their respective fields, no pressure there.


I highly recommend this book to science fiction fans, especially those who enjoy young adult as well. Space is the next frontier and there is so much to learn from the next generation of explorations. The Unsound Theory has a little bit of everything in it and I can't wait for the next installment of this series!

Big Bad Wolf – Despite The Fangs by Dylan Newton #DylanNewton
Despite the Fangs - Dylan Newton



I love the cool blue colored cover for Despite The Fangs by Dylan Newton. The coolness depicts the location, the Adirondack Mountains and it’s done in a way that all the elements mesh together without being too busy. Great job Rae Monet Inc Design.


Despite the Fangs

Amazon   /  Goodreads




I found Dylan Newton by winning one of her books in a giveaway, Any Witch Way. I loved it so much, that when I was given a chance to read Despite The Fangs, I was gung ho. And…


Aribella Lupari is the Alpha of the Lypari wolfpack.


Ari has become a stalker werewolf. It’s not her fault. It was all an accident. It was love at first smell, when she and her brother were out on a rescue mission in the Adirondacks

No time for a snack of rabbit tar tar. I love the light, humorous writing.

She IS Tracker Inc. Need someone found? Missing hikers, no problem. Villains, the best. Children were the most difficult cases. When the opportunity comes up to rescue a kidnapped child that would net them what they need to allow them to take their company global, thus enabling them to combine werewolves across the world under an umbrella of independence, how could she turn it down. Until…


He walks in. The sexual tension was flaming hot before they even met face to face.They both deny the attraction, and when it comes to the paranormal, I find it easier to accept the instalove. Once they surrender to their urges I feel like I can sit back, relax, and get to the crux of the story and I am really curious to find out the what of Mason. I love the fabulous twist, that I wasn’t expecting, and you will need to read the book to know more. It’s so good, I refuse to spoil it for you.


Different from the usual paranormal, supernatural werewolf stories I read. I am always on the lookout for something different, something a little more…This rrrrighteously wonderful surprise made me stay up until three in the morning, because I had to get to the action packed, riveting, heart pounding ending.


Despite The Fangs is not my first Dylan Newton story and it will not be my last. She has a way of taking the run of the mill story and flipping it upside down and inside out, with her excellent writing that will surprise and delight.

“Anyway, I’ve got to go. Thanks so much. I…enjoyed my time with you. Bear mauling, and tranquilizer gun aside, it’s rare to find a guy that’ll accept me. Ask the three little pigs. Or the brat with the red riding cape.”

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Despite The Fangs by Dylan Newton.

Spellbinding – The Dragon’s Playlist by Laura Bickle @Laura_Bickle
The Dragon's Playlist - Laura Bickle

OMG, what an amazing cover for The Dragon’s Playlist by Laura Bickle. If this is any indication of the story inside, I can hardly wait to get started. How about you?


Cover:  Danielle Fine


The Dragon's Playlist

Amazon Goodreads




I have heard some rumors about Laura Bickle’s writing and now I know, IT’S TRUE! She can spin a heart pounding tale of love and loss, and fantasy and fiction, that blend together in a spellbinding read that you will not be able to put down.


Diamond came home to see her ailing father. It is terrible to see a parent weak, ill, a parody of their former self. He had been hurt in a mine cave in.


Oh man, she’s got a porcelain unicorn collection. Me too. She talks of her love for trees and the forest. I love them too. I also had a treehouse, and, like hers, it was really just a couple of boards nailed to a couple of branches. BUT, I never had a fiery something coming my way. Hmmm…is it a shadow…is that fire?


Money issues force her to take a break from college and she is not happy about it. She is resentful, even though she knows it’s the only way to help her parents. Her ex-boyfriend, Jason, seems to be a permanent fixture at her parents home. She thought it was odd, until she found out why Jason and her dad had such a close relationship.


Another mining story with the same theme, attitudes, danger, treehuggers…and the miners who need the jobs. I have read several books, recently, about coal mining and it pisses me off every time it comes up. We shouldn’t be underground, like rats, mining for an obsolete product. Well…let me collect myself…These type of stories get my emotions roiling and I am filled with anger, disgust, sadness, and a feeling of ambivalence.


I couldn’t help but laugh at the mention of noodling, and if you haven’t heard of it you are in for a laugh or two. It’s a southern thing. They were supposed to be looking for Buzzard Bill, but the kids are easily bored.


Whoa…Not what I was expecting and I love it. Reminds me of Mothman…a bit.


The characters have some decisions to make, some attitudes to adjust and some romantic feelings to sort out. Their futures are not easy to discern and their problems read like a true story as they struggle day by day. Sometimes we don’t get all the dreams of our youth, but, like Diamond, there can still be love, happiness and a feeling of contentment.


At seventy percent, I am feeling so sad. I went from childlike wonder to anger and disappointment, sorrow and hope. So much heartache. Can there possibly be any happiness left?


I cannot stop reading…I must know…OMG! Fabulous, fiery, fantastic, flaming, flawless fantasy!

Yes, please!
Transformers: Lost Light #15 - James Roberts,Brendan Cahill

Oh, man, as much as I was shocked by the last issue, this one?   This one had me just in shock throughout.   


And I was pleased.   This series keeps getting better and better, although, dammit, why can't Grimlock be part of a story for more than, like, two issues at a time?   Bummer.   I look forward to meeting up with the Lost Light crew at the same time that I regret leaving Grimlock behind, so mixed feelings about that. 


And if Python hadn't melted my brain, I would be giving you a longer, better review.   So there you go.
