Review: The Dark Communion (The Midnight Defenders) by Joey Ruff
The Dark Communion - Joey Ruff

 

A cracking fantasy tale that sucks you in from the outset and spits you out at the finish. Addictive and exciting, this first Midnight Defenders episode introduces the reader to Jono Swyftt, personal investigator and killer of monsters. 

With an arsenal of kick-ass guns, Swyftt and his partner scour Seattle in search of a missing autistic boy and a catatonic billionaire that has mysteriously vanished from a local nursing home. Coming face-to-face with one ugly son-of-a-bitch and the serial killer bums that are under his spell, Swyftt must draw on all his strength to win the battle and save the day.

Fans of Supernatural will enjoy this fast-paced romp into the paranormal. With a likeable hero and more monsters than you can shake a stick at, this will appeal to readers of fantasy and paranormal alike. 4/5 stars.

Thanks to Joey Ruff for sharing his book with me in return for an honest review.

Review: Patriot (Brooke Kinley Adventures #1) by A. S. Bond
Patriot (A Brooke Kinley Adventure) (Volume 1) - A S Bond

Brooke is a journalist hot on the heels of the story of a lifetime, but, getting all the gory details and making it out alive is another matter. Brooke will need all her wits about her and some assistance along the way in order to break the news.

This Brooke Kinley Adventure by A. S. Bond is fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat stuff. Barely leaving time between chapters in which to catch your breath before you're flung into the next assault on your emotions.

This novel gripped me from the outset and put me through the wringer before flinging me out like a wet rag at the end! Brooke is an engaging character, a young woman who is self-reliant and motivated. She is assisted on her journey towards the truth by a few men, but they need her help as much as she needs theirs.

My only criticism would be that I found the chapters focusing on Scott lacked the thrill of the chapters centred around Brooke. I found myself skimming in order to get to the next bout of action.

Bond's prose is exciting, descriptive and enchanting; the story thrilling and explosive. A great read for anyone who fancies adventure on a grand scale.

Special thanks to author A. S. Bond for the copy I received in return for an honest review.

4/5 stars.

Review: Dragonsphere by Richard Fierce
Dragonsphere - Richard Fierce

This fantasy novel had some good characters and I really enjoyed the first few chapters. As I continued reading, however, I started to lose interest among the midsection of the book. Things did pick up again towards the end, but unfortunately, due to my lack of interest in the main body, I'm only awarding it 2.5 stars.

I'd like to thank author Richard Fierce for sending me a digital copy in return for an honest review.

Review: New Beginnings (The Quarantine Series #1) by Caleb Monroe
New Beginnings: Choose The World or Choose Your World? (The Quarantine Series) - Caleb Monroe

Ben is drifting along in life until a chance meeting with Jenna throws him into the path of a deadly cult that want them both dead. Ben and Jenna join forces in a race against time to stop the Cult of New Beginnings from taking over the planet. Ben and Jenna travel the globe in a bid to stop the cult and ultimately save the world. Would you save the world or save your world?

 

This debut novel from Caleb Monroe is a twist on the age-old good versus bad. Good guys Ben and Jenna battle to beat a cult in claiming artifacts from across the globe. The duo add Sam and Clark to their team as they meet them along the way.

 

The premise is exciting, intriguing and full of twists and turns. Endearing characters and descriptive use of language bring the story to life. This novel held my interest throughout, I just had to know what happened next.

 

My only criticism would be that the ending is a little abrupt, but no doubt all will be revealed in the next chapter of The Quarantine Series.

 

Sincere thanks to Caleb Monroe for sending me a copy of this novel in return for an honest review. I'm looking forward to reading the second instalment! 4/5 stars.

Review: Finding My Way Home by C. K. O'Neil
Finding My Way Home  : A Memoir About Life, Love, and Family - C.K. O'Neil

Cassie embarks on a road trip across America to discover more about herself. Along the way she encounters new people and had new experiences. She also take time to reflect on her life thus far, in particular the way she has tried to fit in with her friends and how her relationship with family is antagonistic.

This memoir arrived courtesy of the author and is not my usual type of read. I found it quite interesting, particularly the reflective parts. The descriptions of various places were of interest as I've never visited the States, and recounts of Cassie's human interactions well written.

There were a few spelling and grammatical issues which would have given a more professional feel, as would using a high resolution photo on the cover. Having said that, making these changes wouldn't have made me like the book any more or less.

This memoir clearly has many fans which is great for a first book. I'd like to thank the author for providing me with a review copy in return for an honest review.
