Fire and Ice by Sarah Cradit Review
Fire and Ice is a short story about Remy and Fleur Fontenot. The twins have a gift. Remy’s gift is Fire and Fleur’s gift is Ice.

Through a Mardi Gras Krewe ball, where the sport of the night is how many sexual conquests can be obtained, Anne is introduced. Since this was a short story, not a novella, there just wasn’t time to learn much about anyone. But it demonstrates the strength of the author’s writing talents.

Worth a read, but learn more by reading the series.

Beyond Midnight: Asunder by Sarah Cradit Review
Speechless. Sarah Cradit has outdone herself with Asunder. I have read every single one of her books and have seen her writing go from very good to OMG great. She has matured as a writer and this latest book shows the depth and breadth of her writing. If you were distraught after reading Midnight Dynasty, then reading Beyond Midnight will soothe your soul. Sarah brings the Deschanel curse full circle, yet sets the stage for her next book. And with the maturity of her writing, I can only imagine the next book.

In Asunder, Cradit brings key characters to the forefront and has the reader cheering for their decisions, even if they are crying for the hard choices.

Bravo, Sarah! This was an incredible thing to read – eye candy for the soul. This book is definitely five out of five stars.

I was provided an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The Best Medicine by Jessica B. Bell Review

This was a dark short story. There was hope throughout the story that kept me reading. I don’t typically read anything that deals with undead or zombie like creatures. This was a quick story of a woman and her daughter. The woman, Judy, had worked for the company who had created the drugs that turned people into flesh eating monsters.

While the story was well- written, I can’t really say I can recommend it…unless you like this sort of story. It only takes a few minutes to read though, so give it a chance. If you dare.

Reave by C. Miller Book Review

I follow the author’s blog and purchased this book a few months ago to support her. I finally started reading. I had no idea if this was going to be fantasy, paranormal, romance, YA or comedy.

I was immediately transported into Aster’s world. Hers was a simple existence. She was considered property. Not a person. She thought she was invisible. But suddenly her life gets complicated. And she was no longer invisible. The key characters were fully developed and I felt like I was a part of their world walking the hallways with them.

I enjoyed this book a lot and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

It would have been better with a little more editing. There were some passages that I had to read two and three times to try and understand. They weren’t critical to enjoying the book, but slowed down my reading.

I do recommend reading this book if you are looking for a book that will pull you into the world of Reapers.

The Advocate by Teresa Burrell Book Review
This book grabbed me from the very first page. As Atty. Saber Brown is appointed as the attorney for Alexis, the twists and turns don’t stop. Alexis is a precocious ten year old who has experienced more in her young years than most adults. But Sabre can smell that something just isn’t right. She continues to look for answers, even involving a detective from across the country in Atlanta, as well as her best friend and fellow attorney, Bob. There are moments in the book where my heart sped up and stopped as I was waiting for something to happen. When nothing did, I was still sure the other shoe was going to drop. Eventually it did.

I’m anxious to read more books in this series. Just as soon as my heart slows back down. I gave this book five of five stars.

The Christmas King Review

I heard about this short story just today. It seemed so timely that I downloaded it and read it immediately. It is just a few pages re telling the Christmas story we have all heard time and again.

Becket has taken a familiar story of the birth of Jesus and boiled the facts down from much earlier through His birth. This is a beautiful simple story that would work really well for reading aloud as the family gathers together on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning.

A story to be read over and over again. Well written and simple.

Fly Birdie by Jo Robinson

Short and sweet. This short story covered weeks and maybe months. The descriptions were beautiful. I felt as if I was living her terror and then her joy.

As someone suffering from ornithophobia, I was wary of reading this. But it was truly a gentle sweet story.

I gave this five out of five stars.
