The Mothman’s Story is Complete – A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair @MaeClair1
A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant) - Mae C... A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant) - Mae Clair

A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair is the final story of The Mothman and Point Pleasant series.

 

If you love creature features and ‘true’ myths and legends, this series is for you.

 

Preorder for July 18, 2017 release.

 

 

A Desolate Hour (Point Pleasant, #3)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

This is the third book in the series, and the finale, so I will do my best to not include spoilers. Just make you want to run right out and buy this mystery series. If you are a creature feature lover, like me, this will be a must read collection you want on your reading shelf.

 

It’s nice to be back in Point Pleasant, with familiar friends and monsters, waiting for the next adventure to begin.

 

Book II left me feeling so sad for Mothman and I worry about what will become of him. He has lived for A Thousand Yesteryears, the only one of his kind.

 

The Ouija Board had foretold QM would become a part of Sarah’s life. WTH is QM?

The curse brought HIM to Point Pleasant.

 

Caden is a cop in Point Pleasant and knows the Mothman, and others, that I won’t speak about. You’ll have to meet them all yourself…and you might want to have someone with you when you do.

 

Lach is back and there is always trouble when he makes an appearance.

 

Stone amulets…a deadly blade…a curse

 

Shawn and Preech will play their part as the curse rises from the past, demanding retribution. You can never escape the past…innocent or guilty, it just doesn’t matter.

 

A Desolate Hour, great title by the way, has an aura of menace from the beginning.

 

“A Desolate Hour when a tear in time renders past and present in one.” How can that be anything but bad news?

 

When Mothman vanishes for long periods of time and everything is normal in Point Pleasant, I wonder where he goes, what he’s doing. He didn’t ask for his fate. Alone. Isolated. Angry. Suffering.

 

As the people and forces in Point Pleasant draw together, it is ‘the culmination of A Desolate Hour’, and the door closes on the Mothman’s story. Mae Clair did a bang up job with the ending, leaving me satisfied, but…

 

I am so sad to be leaving Point Pleasant and the marvelous characters and adventure I have had, but I do not despair. I know Mae Clair has another marvelous story up her sleeve and I aim to get my hands on it.

 

If you are a creature feature lover, if you crave reading about myths and legends, if you like to be scared and surprised, run and soar through the air, this is one series you don’t want to miss.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of A Desolate Hour by Mae Clair.

Merry Chris Witch - CK Dawn,Karri Klawit... Merry Chris Witch - CK Dawn,Karri Klawiter,Celine Fowler

Welcome  to Christmas in July and Saturday Shorts.

MY REVIEW

 

How does the magical community spend Christmas? Well, they don’t scrub the floors. A simple wave of their had and the house is clean. I would love to be able to do that too.

BUT, Chris isn’t supposed to use magic. He’s a witch, so, like Harry Potter, he feels the need to test his abilities. He’s ahead of his class and easily bored. If he doesn’t quit getting in magical trouble, they’ll strip his powers and send him to human school.

 

He hates everything about Christmas, except his birthday, until….

 

He meets Nichole.

 

At first it’s fun and games, but when Nichole asks Chris for his help, he drops everything.

 

This sweet and innocent romance shares young puppy love, wonder and adventure, traveling the world through magic, flying through the air in Nichole’s Lamborghini.

What a sight to see.

 

In the magical realm, all things are possible, which is why I love to read about the paranormal and supernatural, and C K Dawn has done a wonderful creating a world of imagination and dreams that will entertain the young and old alike.

Cyclops Road by Jeff Strand
Cyclops Road - Jeff Strand

Evan Portin has just lost his wife and is having a very bad day at work. But he comes upon a woman being mugged and finds that she doesn't need his help.

Harriet is a strange one for sure. She's never been in a car or seen a cellphone. Safe to say she's been pretty isolated. Oh, and she's on her way to kill a cyclops.

I know, right? Someone has a few screws loose. Maybe...?

Follow Evan as he takes the ride of his life.

 

 

I found this book entertaining as all get out, and unique, and very funny! I loved it! It was very different from the usual Strand novels. Can't say much more so I don't give anything away. I definitely recommend it though. It's not actually horror. I would put it more in the fantasy, sci-fi category.

 

4 stars

The Last Valkyrie by Jeremy Robinson
The Last Valkyrie - Jeremy Robinson,Tori Paquette

Excited to be going back to the world of Antarktos! Although this book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading Antarktos Rising and, one of my all time favorites, The Last Hunter.


This is the story of Solomon's daughters, Aquila and Norah, as they learn to fight and survive the underground realm of Antarktos when Aquila is taken by the Nephilim, who want to turn her into a hunter. Norah must overcome her fear of inadequacy in order to save her sister and on the way, learn about her amazing power.

 

Highly recommend (the whole series)!

The Bear and the Nightingale: A Novel - Katherine Arden

As Katherine Arden herself states in her author’s note at the end of The Bear and the Nightingale, she does take some liberties with Russian names, as well as the history in which her story takes place. However, her capable storytelling allows the reader to set aside this knowledge and simply enjoy the story she has created. 

 

Arden’s novel is visually detailed. It is easy to picture the setting and the various set pieces of this story, from Pyotr Vladimirovich’s great house and the Grand Prince’s vast hall adorned with a heavily laden dining table, to the great battle scene that rounds out the story at the novel’s end. The story juxtaposes images that trick the reader’s sensibilities. What initially appears to be a stark, blank canvas, is actually teaming with abundant and colorful detail. Even the shadows that lurk through Konstantin’s bed chamber offer essential insights not only in terms of plot, but in terms of the internal conflict that faces Konstantin as well. 

 

While a reader might think that such attention to detail might hamper their enjoyment of the story, that is not the case here. Arden’s prose flows easily. Her descriptions become part of the action, supporting the characters and their interactions with each other. When characters are talking, it’s fun to also picture on the side a little domovoi, or house elf, sitting by a clay oven with a long, smoking beard, munching on burnt crusts of leftover bread. The folkloric elements complement the realistic aspects of the story well. The characters have real presence. Their various conflicts are very natural and real, despite the supernatural elements that are ever-present. The petty jealousies, fears, fervent devotions, honest love of family and daily toils help ground and balance the novel, maintaining the reader’s interest throughout. 

 

While the story is entertaining, some readers might balk at the novel’s somewhat abrupt ending. Though there is a definite conclusion, Arden leaves some details open-ended, enough to make a potentially satisfying sequel. After reading and conducting some research on Katherine Arden’s website, she states that this book is the first of a trilogy—information I did not know prior to reading. In truth, I’m glad and can’t wait to revisit the feisty Vasya and her folkloric world, and perhaps see further intrigues related to the ever troubled Konstantin.
