"Undone By Fire" by Falon Gold

My Thoughts....

I really enjoyed reading 'Undone By Fire' which dealt with Naveah and Orion. How this story went from a trial to a HEA was simply well written for these two giving the reader quite a captivating read. I loved how these two seemed to bond from the very beginning of their meeting. Then you add in that abusive person and let's not leave out some other outstanding characters...Tommy, Astrid, Gary along with a few others and you will have one heck of a good read. I will say that Tommy was one funny character that will keep you laughing at his antics throughout the story. Even though the reader will find some funny parts of the read this was still a serious story about 'Domestic Violence.' It seems like it took Naveah a minute to understand that she had people who were willing to help her but will she be willing to receive their help? This was a good story in that when certain things happen through abuse one cannot stay silent. There is 'help out there and it will not just stop and just go away.' No person should have to go through this situation alone especially when there is help for you! Well done novel to the author for such a real good entertaining read.

My Thoughts....



This story will leave one with so many emotions in this well told historical fiction story about Oney.  These two authors really give  the readers quite a read [escaping from slavery]  where you will see good times and also horrible times that happened around Oney Judge as she seeks her freedom from a most powerful family of the United States. "Oney" is definitely one of those reads that will give you a lot to ponder over long after the read. I will also say this is one of those stories that you will have to be ready for because there is a little bit of it all as one can imagine from the title of the novel "Oney: My Escape From Slavery."

Here's a review of light young adult fiction for a change:

Now he is back to the USA and he meets the girl whom his brother wished to present to him as a surprise... and his fiancée. After the summer Sam resumes his studies at the University of Notre Dame where also his late brother's girlfriend Elle is a student at St. Mary's College. Sam drifts through student life - confused and without direction.

Review:

"Tethered Angel" by T. M. Brown

My Thoughts....

A very touching story...of Angel young black girl in the 50's who was the daughter of 'Georgie and Donnie' that endured quite a bit from the hands of Miss Emily Baker. I will say that lady definitely made Angel's abduction so very captivating giving the read a very interesting read. As Angel is drawn into Miss Emily manipulation, craziness and strangeness and let's not leave out that hold she had on Ricky. Will Angel make it back to her mom Georgie before it is too late? In the end I liked how this author brings it all together and I will stop here and say to get the whole story the reader will have to pick up this well written read with a good storyline to see what all happens in the end.
