Creature Feature Review – The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea @huntershea1
The Jersey Devil - Hunter Shea

The Jersey Devil is not my first Hunter Shea novel, nor will it be my last. His creature features are packed with horrifying thrills and chills that entertain me for hours and I always hate to see the story end.

 

I borrowed this paperback copy from Laura, my sister at fuonlyknew.

 

ALSO, be sure and check out Hunter Shea’s bio. I find him VERY interesting and I think you will too.

 

28475212

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

I love creature features and The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea is a gripping and terrifying horror tale that unrolled like movie film as the images flitted through my mind. I am an avid watcher of B movies and this cover told me all I needed to know.

 

Boompa knew the legend of The Jersey Devil was true and his family had been waiting…waiting…waiting…knowing this day would come.

 

I love that Boompa, a farmer in his eighties, used a computer to keep aware of any monster sightings. The Willet family had prepared for this moment their entire lives and they will fight to the death.

 

I can’t imagine being in the woods and I mean so far back in the boonies that even the people that live there are off the grid…dangerous…Imagine how dark it is, how every rustle of leaves or crack of a branch leaves you shivering in fear. I have sat in my back yard, very late at night photographing the moon and freaked myself out listening to the sounds of the night, looking over my shoulder wondering if it is really some harmless lizard or…

 

The characters all have their purpose, some heroes and some not so much, and some who will not make it out alive and I felt Hunter Shea disposed of them in a way that made me feel it was okay.

 

So…look to the side, look to the back, look below, look above…

 

This action packed legend comes to life early with bloody, savage, gripping and terrifying horror. These super charged monsters will take you to a gruesome place where no one is safe. You won’t want to miss it.

Review – The Rising by Heather Graham & Jon Land @jondland #HeatherGraham
The Rising: A Novel - Heather Graham,Jon Land

No need to think twice when it comes to The Rising by Heather Graham and Jon Land.

 

The Rising

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Buckle your seat belt because this is going to be a very bumpy ride.

 

Two of my must read authors, Heather Graham and Jon Land, have come together to create to create a fabulous science fiction  thriller in The Rising.

 

Alex is special and he doesn’t know it. He suffers a football injury, winding up in the hospital, and the action and adventure begin.

 

As Alex, Sam, Raiff and Donati are drawn together, forces are determined to stop them.

The Trackers want him. The Watchers and Guardians protect him.

 

And don’t we always have someone that wants to rule the world and will do anything to accomplish it? Villains are fascinating, to me. The worse they are, the more I love them.

Scientists beware. Your actions can change the world!

 

Particle accelerators, quantam space, wormholes, doorways into space, space time continuum…

 

This Terminator like suspense story has everything you would want in a science fiction fantasy…action, mystery, thrills and a story line that will spur your imagination and give you hours of reading pleasure.

 

There is more to come and I think H G Wells has nothing on Heather Graham and Jon Land. I can hardly wait to go on the next adventure. …Take me away.

She Won’t Stop Til She Finds Her Bestie – Shade by Marilyn Peake @marilynpeake
Shade - Marilyn Peake

Shade by Marilyn Peake is more than just a supernatural/paranormal mystery.

 

It is a look inside a trouble teenager’s life and how she more than rises to the challenge.

 

Shade (The Shade Series #1)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Shade is a YA Paranormal mystery that includes some difficult subject matter, such as cutting and alcohol and drug abuse. More than anything it is the journey of Galactic Shade Griffin as she struggles with life and the danger and difficulties that cross her path.

 

A drug addict, a ghost, faeries, a troubled teen girl, her missing friend, a messed up mom, an amulet…will Shade be the hero she created in her graphic novel?

 

Shade has pretty much raised herself and hasn’t done too bad of a job, considering…no father and a mother who drank and drugged herself into oblivion.

 

Her mother moved them again, and things changed for Shade. She met Brandon Yates, a ghost that haunted their new home. When her best friend turns up missing, they band together to figure out the mystery.

 

More girls go missing…

 

I love how Shade struggles and grows to develop. I knew a girl who cut herself and I cannot stress how upset and sad I was for her. I could not understand how hurting yourself could make you feel better. Or maybe it was just so she could feel…something.

 

I love a good mystery and the paranormal is a nice touch. It adds an extra element I always appreciate. The danger rises and the the mystery is darker than Shade could have imagined. I have read of what can happen to girls who go missing and I fear how vulnerable the female species is…how unprepared and innocent we can be about the evil men do.

 

Marilyn can spin a wonderful tale that is easy to read and contains lovable characters that will wiggle their way into your heart. I would love to have Shade as my best friend too.

Amongst the dark, there is light.

In the tragic and sadness, there is hope and love.

#RomanticSuspense Review – Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman @CateBeauman
Morgan's Hunter - Cate Beauman

Cate Beauman is a must read author for me.

 

I love romantic suspense and she is a top notch author with The Bodyguards of LA County series to her credit. I am eager to meet them all, and I will be happy to introduce you to therm…one by one.

 

I love the cover, the bright green catches my attention quickly, and the elements tell me the story inside will be an interesting one, involving murder and mystery.

 

Cover by Streetlight Graphic

 

Morgan's Hunter (The Bodyguards Of L.A. County, #1)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I cannot imagine how our brave men and women feel as they dodge IED’s and bullets in a foreign land, so…

 

When Hunter was at Jake’s side in Afghanistan, as he lay dying, Jake made Hunter promise to take care of Sarah and the baby.

 

Hunter had been injured himself and nightmares haunted his sleep.

 

Morgan didn’t hurt for money, but she worked hard anyway. She and her friends were the six Musketeeers and committed to their environmental work…until three are found murdered. She seeks answers with a vengeance.

 

She is a scientist doing wildlife research, not a fighter, so her dad’s solution…Ethan Cooke Security and Hunter is assigned to work with her.

 

This is my favorite type of reading. I do want a high degree of suspense and I  feel it throughout…waiting for the culprits to show themselves and the confrontation that will result. Making this mystery even harder to solve, is their location, alone in the wilderness.

 

Two strong personalities clash and the verbal foreplay begins. Sparks are flying from their first meeting. Of course, we knew this was coming. After all, Morgan’s Hunter is a romantic suspense, so I would be hugely disappointed if it didn’t.

 

Cate Beauman does a fabulous job of creating desire and painful denial, the characters not allowing themselves to act on their attraction. Their  denial creates it own suspense and anticipation as I wait for them to act on their feelings. I keep waiting for them to drop their guard and get it on.

 

I knew something would happen before they left the forest. I hate the way it happened, but it had to be that way. Sometimes Morgan acts like a spoiled brat and it makes me wonder about myself. I can be obstinate and cantankerous when someone tries to boss me around. Would I do that in her situation?

 

Greed, money, power…who knows what will cause a person to corrupt themselves.

The danger doesn’t end when I thought it would. I love that Cate kept me on pins and needles, sneaking in the last tidbits of goodness, choosing the time when I can take a breath and say, “OMG, What’s next?.”

 

This fabulous series stands alone and ranks high on my reading list. I can hardly wait to read more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman.

Review: "Carry the Ocean" (The Roosevelt, #1) by Heidi Cullinan
Carry the Ocean - Heidi Cullinan

"I am normal. I belong. I have a friend who can kick ass from a wheelchair. I live independently and get good grades. I’m an excellent lover.

Like I said. I’m awesome. I’m Emmet David Washington. Train Man. The best autistic Blues Brother on the block."

I love this book more and more with every reread.
