"American Demon Hunters: Sacrifice", by J. Thorne
American Demon Hunters: Sacrifice - Zach Bohannon,J. Thorn,Lindsay Buroker,J.F. Penn

With the collaboration of Zach Bohannon, Lindsay Buroker and J.F. Penn

If you are a fan of horror, dark fantasy, mystery or paranormal suspense and love a plot that is fairly simple to grasp you will be pleased with this novella. It is quite an adventure taking us into a make believe world through 134 pages of chilling horror.

The authors meshed beautifully their part each taking the role of a character and blending their story into an eerie tale of demons, portals and gateways. Sonya (Thorn), Blake(Bohannon), Aiko( Buroker), Sebastian (Penn) board an Amtrak train from Chicago to New Orleans for 19 hours that will change their lives.

The train is the backdrop and where all the spooky action takes place. Demons escapes, body count rises and some will have to pay the ultimate sacrifice. The plot is definitely creative with no shortage of descriptive scenes: blood and guts, humans versus demons….ouf… this was one exhausting quick read.

I admit this is not my favourite kind of book although for a good part of the book I was deep into it till the action started to be too creepy for my taste. I lost a bit of interest yet I still stayed captivated till the end. I would say this is imagination at its best (or worse): so scary, so out of this world and definitely unbelievable ….. Thank goodness “Sacrifice” is a fantasy….

I received a review copy of this book from J.F. Penn

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an incredible novel by C.S. Lewis. I read this book in 5th grade with my class. It is about four children who make their way to a far away land called Narnia; there they become prisoners to an evil witch who calls herself the Queen of Narnia; huge sacrifices are made and war is brought up between the four children and the witch.

 

This story can be read in a 5th grade classroom; I would use this to have discussions on sacrifice, character analysis, and theme during the reading. You could also use this to do a compare and contrast between the four siblings, and describe the relationship between the four and how they work together. You can also have the students write about what it means to be a  hero and what makes Aslan a hero.

Being a cop, I didn’t have any choice, but I really wish I hadn’t got mixed up in this case. My dark past is catching up to me ever since he barreled into my life without a care. It terrifies me that he sees right through me. He could be the one to save me . . . or break me.

It was just a job. Until it wasn’t. By then the sexy little redhead had her claws in me. Now, she’s in my life and I’m lost. How am I supposed to keep the demons from her past from eating her alive? I don’t know, but I will do whatever it takes to make her mine.

Charlotte's Web
Charlotte's Web - E.B. White,Garth Williams,Rosemary Wells

Charlotte's Web is a fantastic novel; I have read this two or three times. A little girl named Fern puts forth all her efforts to save and take care of a pig named that her dad just wants gone. The novel includes a spider named Charlotte who is a very motherly and encouraging friend to Wilbur. This story teaches students about true friendship and devotion to one another.

 

For this novel, I would read it in a fourth or fifth grade classroom, and have my students throughout our reading make notes about the characters, then at the end of our reading I would have them either fill out a graphic organizer with the plot (beginning, climax, and ending) or have discussion questions in groups about the theme, plot, characters, etc.

Keep me
A SEAL’s Sacrifice - Tawny Weber

This book can be read as a standalone novel.  If reading through a series, this is book #2 for Sexy SEAL's, #6.5 for Uniformly Hot SEALs.  I always recommend reading in order for further understanding and enjoyment.

 

Noah & Gwen have a history he walked away from. Now, Gwen has a life with a new man. Can she forgive and forge a new future with a man she cannot seem to let go? Seriously sexy and sweet. You feel the honesty in the characters interactions and it pulls you right in.

 

This was a joy to read.  I wish it had been longer, but was at a nice pace and easy to read.  Great addition to the series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
