Dark Celebrations by Calvin Demmer @CalvinDemmer
Dark Celebrations - Calvin Demmer

I have read some of Calvin Demmer’s stories and Dark Celebrations is an anthology that may make you want to party…or not.

 

Dark Celebrations

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Dark Celebrations is not my first foray into Calvin Demmer’s world and I look forward to going wherever he wants to take me in this collection of stories.

 

I was going to review each story separately, but with Covid -19 around and being cooped up for six weeks now, I find my motivation running a bit empty. So…

 

I enjoyed all the stories and spending time in the world of horror and the supernatural. Calvin Demmer is skilled at crafting tales that give me the creepy crawlies,making me glad that it is fiction.

 

Wantta party? The door is open. Come on in. But, lock the doors and turn on the lights.

He Had a Vision – Shepherd’s Warning by Cailyn Lloyd @cailynrox
Shepherd's Warning - Cailyn Lloyd

Last year I took in numerous books from new to me authors. None were disappointing, though some were better than others. Shepherd’s Warning by Cailyn Lloyd was a delightful surprise.

 

Cover by Rose Miller

 

Shepherd's Warning

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

A house in the woods. The man. The woman. A hidden entity.

 

Who doesn’t love a good haunted house story?

 

Lucas and his brother, Nate, had inherited the MacKenzie mansion in the small town of Lost Arrow. It had sat deserted for years and they were there to make it their home. HGTV would be along for the ride, documenting the transformation.

 

They had no knowledge of it’s reputation, the accidents, the things that go bump in the night.

 

Tom Wolfe had sworn to protect the house, while he waits for the owner, his love, Elizabeth, to return. He wonders why, now, they are people here. Is it at her whim? He likes that they are fixing it up, but once they are done, he wants them gone.

 

A premonition brought Kenric Shepherd to Wisconsin. His vision warns of danger, but he must wait for more to be revealed.

 

As soon as the chainsaw did it’s thing, I would have been long gone.

 

Laura had been treated for epilepsy and was bullied and teased growing up. She learned to enjoy her own company. I guess now she’ll learn it was so much more than epilepsy.

Another #5StarReview from Jaye Frances for The Kure by @jayefrancesnews
The Kure - Jaye Frances

Jaye Frances can write some fabulous stories that go places I never thought I would be…and I love it!

 

The Kure

Amazon / Goodreads

 

Due to mature content, this book is best suited for a Mature YA/New-Adult or Adult reader.

 

John looked at the sign, Lucius D Harwell.

 

He approached the doctor’s door and knew he had to go in…now. Before anyone saw him, “So”, the doctor said, “Are you ready?”

 

When he saw the bucket full of the slithering slime he remembered the woman he had brought in a while back. It hadn’t ended so well for her.

 

What would become of him? There had to be another way. He couldn’t bring himself to let the doctor begin. He had heard stories whispers, quickly hushed when someone approached. The doctor tried to talk him into beginning but he thought it couldn’t hurt to hypothetically discuss other options. The doctor tried to explain that it wasn’t like an elixir or ointment, couldn’t be found in a battle or jar – more like a potion, it was witchcraft. It went against church and state, but John couldn’t help himself.

 

Three conditions would let the doctor begin his recommended treatment, after he told him he would have to “cast away his good name and denounce all things holey and pure”. He would never speak of the books or what was contained in the pages. He agreed. The doctor retrieved the book and John watched him place it on the desk.

 

He saw only one word, KURE. The doctor gave him one more chance to change his mind, but he placed his hand on the cover of the book and felt an evil. As the book turned its pages on its own volition the doctor began reading.

 

How did Jaye Frances go there? It makes me wonder how her mind works.

 

Jaye France’s books have taken me on some wild journeys I never could have imagined, and I always breathe a sigh of relief, for leaving with my sanity, when the story is told.

Shame On Me For Waiting So Long To Share – Gideon by Alex Gordon @alexgordon36
Gideon - Alex Gordon

I have made a huge dent in back reviews that have been sitting, waiting…and waiting. I am close to reaching my goal for this year, the first round through my notebooks and review list. I won’t get everything done, but I am happy with the challenge and my progress.

 

I read Gideon on 6.2.16 and gave it a 5 star rating for this debut thriller. I love Alex Gordon’s work and can only imagine how far Alex Gordon will go in her career. I plan on being around to see.

 

Gideon (Lauren Reardon #1)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Lauren’s fate is sealed with the death of her father. He tried to protect her, but the lure for answers about death and danger surrounding her beckons her to Gideon, where He waits.

 

Alex Gordon”s story takes us from Seattle, Washington, to Gideon, Illinois.

Gideon was a crossroads for evil.

 

HE is surrounded by woods and darkness, where the dead don’t stay dead. Have I hooked you yet?

 

The town’s people job was to keep the darkness from crossing over.

 

Could Lauren be the one to stop HIM for good? Would innocence and naivety in the ways of evil and magic win out?

 

From the 1800s and burning at the stake to cell phones, potions and spells, evil rises and good does it’s best to prevail.

 

Both good and evil characters will die, so be careful who you get attached to and be prepared to grieve for the characters taken before their time.

 

I was a bit slow to get involved, but once Lauren traveled to Gideon, I found the pace picking up and my need to know what happens next rising to such a high level I found it hard to put the book down.

 

BUT…the story is not over and I am so happy to have Book II, Jericho, here at my side, ready to crack open and see what challenge faces Lauren next. I wrote that in my notes, but I reviewed Jericho before Gideon. Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know. LOL

 

Gideon wraps up the story in a great way and I feel it can stand alone, but I rated Jericho 5 stars, so I think ,once you begin, you would have to know more.

Z is for Zombies v Ninjas: Origin by R A Barnes @MarbleCityPub
Zombies v Ninjas: Origin - R.A. Barnes

I have been remiss in keeping up with my challenges and am now crossing off the Z for my Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge, Zombies v Ninjas by R A Barnes. I have K, Keeper of the Peace by Jennifer Malone Wright, X, EXtinct by Ike Hamill (which I am currently reading), and You Can Run by Willow Rose to finish it off. I pulled them from my Amazon free downloads. I will be squeezing the reviews in before the end of the year, because I like all my challenge books to be reviewed.

 

I picked this up on 9.10.15 for free and it was still FREE when I created this post.

 

Zombies v Ninjas: Origin

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The tile for Zombies v Ninjas made me have to pick this up. I was curious how they would come together and it happens quickly.

 

An island, the Undead, an evil mastermind…and ninjas, there has to be a lot of slash ’em up, rock ’em sock ’em action…and there is. Have I died and gone to…HELL?

 

This is a different slant on zombies and how they came to be and the ninjas are recruited to save humanity from the apocalypse.

 

I felt like that’s cool, oh yeah, i like that, all right, way to go, but I never felt like OH NO! OMG! Run for your lives. Watch Out.

 

All in all a fun read and I would continue with the series.
