5 Star Desire
Dante's Desire - Tia Didmon


As a PIA Agent, Jessica Johnson is being transferred to the LA office, but she’s being sent in to betray them and when the destructive power of the PIA’s newest weapon is revealed she realizes too late, the true cost of her loyalty. He has spent centuries without emotions and had accepted his death as inevitable until Jessica walked through his door. Dante has to convince that nothing will stop him from claiming her…not even the secret that ripped her family apart.


The ‘New Immortal’ world continues to intrigue and satisfy readers with this second installment. The chemistry between Dante and Jessica is fiery with lots of flying sparks but the relationship is on a way trip to no man’s land as Jessica’s secret threatens to destroy their entire world, which keeps emotions rolling with lots of angst throughout the story. As with the first story, all the characters are strong and engaging ensuring that readers want to know everyone’s story and this second book introduces some new characters and some new elements, giving readers more to look forward to.


The plot is fast paced and full of thrilling suspense and adrenaline pumping excitement as Jessica investigates a series of crimes that will lead her to a betrayal and the realization of just what her loyalties will cost her. Some surprising twists adds spice and keeps readers guessing and the fascinating world ensures that they keep their eyes glued to the pages until the very end.

Inferno - Dante Alighieri

Okay, I apologize! What was I thinking? A few illustraations would help? They did but it is still quite boring. I consider my classics experiment at an end. Too many other ENJOYABLE books out there. If I say I'm reading some old classic, feel free to start throwing tomatoes. The illustrations were quite good though!

Tales From the Crypt, Vol. 2 (EC Archives)
The EC Archives: Tales from the Crypt, Vol. 2 - Al Feldstein,Joe Dante

An issue of 'Tales From the Crypt' was one of the few comic books lying around my house growing up. It was sick, it was gruesome, and I read it all the time. I was never sure where it came from and my parents refused to get us any more, but it stayed with me. I remember my siblings and I loved to watch the cartoon on Saturday mornings and later watched the TV show and movie.


These are just as fun to read now as when I was a kid. Even with the overuse of exclamation marks - literally there's one at the end of every sentence even on the most mundane of statements! These stories have vengeful corpes, premonitions of death, voodoo dolls, curses - you name it! The vibrant colors on these reissues makes them really pop. I can see why my parents raised their eyebrows at this stuff in the early 90s, so yeah, this was controversial in the 1950s and led to some pretty heavy restrictions on the industry.

Resurrecting my classics read
Inferno - Dante Alighieri

I had to share that I have restarted my goal of reading classics. However, rather than just picking some random book that I happen to own, I'm reading ones I think I'd actually enjoy. First up is Dante's Inferno. NO not the dumb Dan Brown repetitive story (have you noticed all the stories (with who most people really think is Tom Hanks) are actually all the same? They all involve Hanks (see even I don't recall the Professor's name) and some beautiful girl running together around Europe with solving some mystery connected with the catholic church. Only the girls and the locations change so Brown can show off his world knowledge. NO, I'm talking the real book by Dante. I'd started it in the past but never got very far. But after finding this illustrated edition by Fall River Press at Barnes and Noble (Oops, should I have said that? Will Amazon now hunt me down and kick me off the site?) I am certain it will be much more enjoyable and less taxing on the mind trying to picture all of these evils.
