Wherewolves by John Vamvas & Olga Montes @WHEREWOLVESbook
WHEREWOLVES - John Vamvas,Olga Montes

 

I read this a long time ago, 1.16.15, rated it on Goodreads, but forgot to write the review. Sooooo, here we are. I love the Goodreads cover, so that is the one I am sharing.

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I read this back in 2015, but never wrote the review. I have a ton of notes, so that must mean I would be sharing too much. Don’t want to spoil anything. Ya know, a group of kids goes in the woods, I think we all know that some are going to be left behind.

 

  • S ize up the situation, surroundings, physical conditions, equipment
  • U se your senses
  • R ember where you are
  • V anquish fear and panic
  • I mprovise and improve
  • V alue living
  • A ct like the natives
  • L ive by your wits

Most of the characters left a lot to be desired, so it was hard to feel sorry for them. They are seriously damaged

 

I didn’t see where the story was going and I do love the twist. Brutal. I wanted blood and guts and gore and I got it.

Codename: Chimera by J K Persy #JKPersy
Codename: Chimera - J.K. Persy

Very pretty cover for Codename: Chimera by J K Persy. I got this book back in February of 2014, but didn’t read it until 1.15.15. I loved it and I don’t have any excuse for waiting so long to share it with you. The cover does not make me think of the cozy mystery that it is.

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

During their investigation, they learned about a project called Chimera and now the mystery deepens. Is it a conspiracy? Will they kill anyone to keep a secret?

 

A convoluted mystery centered around a medallion. Who does it belong to?

 

Codename: Chimera lacked a sense of urgency, but a lot of cozies do. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them and I loved this one. I was super curious about the outcome and the deaths that follow the medallion.

 

I loved the trio and was happy to be along for their adventure. Codename: Chimera by J K Persy is not what I expected from looking at the cover, but it all made sense in the end.

 

The brain teasers are a bonus. I stopped and spent a lot of time trying to solve them. I wonder if you will too.

A Dragon Falls – Hidden By Megg Jensen @meggjensen @XpressoTours
Hidden - Megg Jensen

I downloaded a copy of Hidden by Megg Jensen a long time ago, 12.16.15, to be exact, but before that. I think it had been made free since I had signed up to review the book through Xpresso Book Tours. I finished reading the book on 1.3.15 and did rate the book on goodreads, but did not write the review.

 

AND…GUESS WHAT…IT’S FREE. But be sure and look for the ‘0’

 

Great cover by Michael Gauss

 

Hidden (Dragonlands, #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Dragons, can never get enough of them.

 

The living conditions put people’s true character to the test. Such close living makes it hard to hid their true colors. The characters are vindictive, revengeful, heroic and brave. I love ’em and hate ’em.

 

What is the fog? Is it treacherous, benign, hiding something? What happens to those who go into the fog?

 

I was engrossed from the beginning. The fog had me very curious and I wanted to walk into it with Tressa. When I first started reading the book, I was looking for dragons, but once I met Tressa, it became all about her. I love her strength. Her personality demanded she do what is right, no matter the consequences. She wasn’t reckless, she felt it was her duty to her people…as if she were their leader. Bastion, her true love since childhood, meant, fated, to be together.

 

The longer I read, the more I find is going on. I am loving my journey to the answers. It is exciting and dangers at the same time. I was bummed when a favorite of min bit the dust, added an unexpected twist, but I love when an author doesn’t walk the usual line and isn’t afraid to kill of their characters. Not predictable and plenty of surprises. Would love to read more.

A Freak Winter Storm – Whispered Pain by Ashley Fontainne @AshleyFontainne
Whispered Pain - Ashley Fontainne

This cover for Whispered Pain by Ashley Fontainne is different from the one on Amazon, which you can see below. I love them both, but I think this one is my favorite. I won this some time ago and read it back in 2015.

 

Ashley does a lot of covers herself and I believe this is one of them.

 

Whispered Pain

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Ashley Fontainne is an award winning author and I have read a lot of her books. I won this back in 2015 and shame on me for waiting so long to share such a fabulous story.

A snow storm…don’t ya just love a story that starts out like that. Bad things happen during storms in novels. LOL Ya know, like when the town rolls up the sidewalks like it’s the end of the world, telling all to go home and stay there. Ashley Fontainne has a way with words and her writing brings the scenes to life in vivid detail, making me feel as if I am there.

 

She adds the details to her characters personalities that bring them to life, adding those bits and pieces that make you feel empathy, fear, and the need to save them. I feel like I walk in their world, wearing their shoes.

 

The devastation caused by the death of Angie’s sister ruined her family, created a distance from everyone. Death, a loss so deep they can’t recover.

 

I knew from the first sentence that Whispered Pain would be another awesome read. I had a feeling I knew what was coming and as the horror comes full on to Angie, my suspicions are confirmed. I can’t help but smile with wicked glee in anticipation. Ashley Fontainne can take me to the lowest low, a despair so deep I don’t have the strength to fight it…Until…a spark ignites, a fire of determination, a rage that comes to life, as if it is a physical thing. I raged with her.

 

WTF Who died and made these men God?

 

The plot is filled with twists and turns that kept a smile on my face as if it was a present to open through Ashley Fontainne’s words. I love that she brought the story full circle.
