Review: Pangaea (The End of Days)






Synopsis:

At the dawn of humankind came the end of all that stood before.

This story is one such fairytale. Except it is not truly a fairytale. It is the story of Giants and Immortals, and of Earth’s greatest legend, Pangaea.

The great continent and the ocean Panthalassa were more than just the earth and the sea—they were the future. They were more than the children that ran across their playgrounds, the farmers that plowed their fields, and the sailors that travelled their waters. More than the hopes and fears of their inhabitants. And much more than the myths and legends who walked the Earth three hundred million years ago. They were a dream, a covenant made long before this universe ever took shape.

This is the tale of an end of an Age.

These are its tragic last days.

Pangaea is being torn apart by magic, and an old evil is set to return. Its greatest champions are blinded by ambition, choked by politics, and crippled by pain. 

Brought together by fate, seven young heroes set out to save the world.

But what can children do against living gods?

Review:

Pangaea: The End of Days by Bolivar Beato is a fascinating book. Inside are tales full of other tales. Each one was pure magic fantasy…myths, events, wars, and other things. Detailed, carefully planned, and entertaining. The book held a intense environment…breaking into more intense moments. Every tale inside connected to the next one. Short, entertaining, and magical. There is so much to read that readers will be taken from their seats into a whole new universe unlike any other. Bolivar Beato is a talented writer. Creating worlds that capture my attention and held until the end.

Review: A Life Before






Synopsis:

Picture yourself as Mike Strange, a lawyer in 1989 who agrees to represent residents of a large condominium complex, twelve of whom have lost a spouse to lung cancer in the past five years. Surprisingly, all twelve were non-smokers, nor were exposed to second-hand smoke. But all were exposed for years to radon gas emanating from the basements of their condo units. 
As this young lawyer starts ruffling too many feathers to bring those responsible to justice, his wife Susan is brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, clearly as a warning to Mike to back off. For twenty years, her murder has eluded a suspect by the police. 

Only one person seems to have a clue after all this time, a young college student, Samantha Collins, who has recurring dreams of the murder of a young housewife by a tattooed man with a scar on his chin. She has had this dream since she was thirteen, but now in 2011, the dreams are more frequent and include more and more information that place Samantha Collins as the reincarnated Susan Strange from years ago. 

Share the excitement as this one cold case is brought back to life through the vision of Samantha, as the perfect crime may not have been so perfect after all.

Review:

A Life Before by Julien Ayotte is an exciting thriller. Right away, I was swept into the book. The characters were believable and the scenes fly by fast. I was completely lost within the pages. There are several cases inside that keep readers like myself guessing. Intriguing, stunning, and well-told. Julien Ayotte is a new writer to watch out for…his words come to life. Danger, excitement, and emotional. Crime happens everywhere. These crimes were entertaining to follow. Overall, I recommend A Life Before to readers everywhere. 

Review: Dark Ties




Synopsis:

Two years after being attacked by a psychotic fan, Ken Simmons has finally released a new novel. It’s the biggest commercial success of his career and Ken should be ecstatic. But happiness is hard to come by with the killer he created haunting his dreams.

Meanwhile, a thousand miles away, Sheriff Allen James is investigating a series of murders. 

Murders seemingly detailed by Ken’s book.

When Allen seeks Ken’s help, they discover that Ken’s book may be more than just a simple crime novel, and Ken’s connection to the killer more than just fantasy.

Ken knows better than anyone how dangerous this killer is and is not eager to get involved. However, the burden of knowledge means Ken can’t quite commit himself to the sidelines, and he finds himself reluctantly agreeing to help Allen bring him to justice.

But when the killer discovers Ken and his new bestseller, all bets are off. Ken must decide whether to run…or face a monster he once thought only existed in his mind. 

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Imagine being a writer who writes bone chilling thrillers with a crazy murder. A murderer that is hard to catch, if caught at all. That’s where this story takes readers. Ken Simmons writes a book.  A killer who haunts him all the time. The local authorities are having trouble with the crimes and ask Ken to help. Ken knows that the killer is one he doesn’t want to play with…yet, he knows more than the police and can help them. As the plot explodes the scenes get more intense. People are dying…and Ken feels awful. He thinks giving up writing would be best for all…or would that only give the killer a satisfaction of winning?

Dark Ties is a superb thriller. Dark, engaging, and fast-paced. I loved it. Mark Dane did a brilliant job in create the perfect read. I was both horrified yet entertained. I felt chills going down my spine yet I couldn’t stop reading…murder and fiction combo was perfect. It leaves readers with a spooky feeling of what if something like that actually happens. This book has the effect to leave many with a nightmare. Some will die…but catching the murderer is key. Overall, I would highly recommend this novel to all. Mark Dane is a talented writer, and I can’t wait to read what he comes up with next.

Review: Her Darkest Nightmare

 

Synopsis:

THE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER
Evelyn Talbot knows that a psychopath can look perfectly normal. She was only sixteen when her own boyfriend Jasper imprisoned and tortured her―and left her for dead. Now an eminent psychiatrist who specializes in the criminal mind, Evelyn is the force behind Hanover House, a maximum-security facility located in a small Alaskan town. Her job puts her at odds with Sergeant Amarok, who is convinced that Hanover is a threat to his community…even as his attraction to beautiful Evelyn threatens to tear his world apart.


BEGINS WITH AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAST

Then, just as the bitter Alaskan winter cuts both town and prison off from the outside world, the mutilated body of a local woman turns up. For Amarok, this is the final proof he needs: Hanover has to go. Evelyn, though, has reason to fear that the crime is a personal message to her―the first sign that the killer who haunts her dreams has found her again. . .and that the life she has so carefully rebuilt will never be the same…

Review:

Her Darkest Nightmare by Brenda Novak is brilliantly well-written. With this talented writer, I have yet to see a poorly written and undeveloped book. Each of her novels, is better than the one before it. It is amazing what Brenda Novak conjures in each tale. This latest novel is a romantic suspense read that will have readers hooked from beginning to end. The fear is overwhelming. I could feel the raw tensions caused by both they work that the main character does and the romance that stirs between her and the police officer. The attraction is mutual. However, the issue lies with the female doctor who can’t forget the past and embrace her life. Or embraced what her life could be like if she would just let go of her nightmare.

Brenda Novak introduced us readers to a prison where a bunch of doctors wanted to analyze the psychopaths that kill and torture others. They hoped that this facility will give them the research they need to see what causes the killers to do what they do. Their goal was to find out what makes them kill and why in a false hope that they can save people. Monsters housed in one building that has top security. Yet one lady never made it to the facility to work on time…then there’s the sexy police officer who found a woman’s head all bashed in a way that no one could recognize her. He immediately laid the blame on the Hangover House aka prison full of psychopathic killers. But could the killer really be a loose prisoner or someone else that the doctor might know? The suspense as always left me hanging. I was eager to know who died and who the killer is, plus, I wanted to see what lied in the future for the two main characters. Then there’s the doctor who was tormented by her boyfriend. Raped and left for dead…yet somehow she made it through and worked her way to becoming a specialist that works in analyzing men aka killers like her boyfriend. Even though she spent years in therapy, she still can’t let go of the danger that’s bound her in like the prisoners around her. Intriguing, sexy, and phenomenal. Brenda Novak’s new novel, Her Darkest Nightmare, will have left her readers sweating in fear. Overall, I highly recommend this compelling read to all.

Review:

Pain-Killer by Kindra Sowder is out of this world. A talented new writer who leaves readers hanging onto every one of her words. Once the book is opened, readers are led into a fast-paced, dark yet edgy world. Horror, blood, and nightmares. The action is plentiful and it seems the pages go by faster than readers think. This novella is part two of the Miss Hyde series. A young sexy woman who has both a good and a bad side. The bad side is one that men never come back to talk about…relationships no matter what kind are scary enough. Imagine dating someone or having a one night stand only then to be drugged, chained up, and murdered by a psychopath. Will the terror ever stop or will the killing continue to climb higher yet? Kindra Sowder’s writing is once more superb as always. I was immediately taken in by her leading female character. I highly recommend reading Pain-Killer during daylight hours. This tale will leave shivers down readers’ spines and a chill that doesn’t disappear. Overall, this is a must read for all.

Review:

Darkview Psychosis by R.J Bathgate and M.J. Hall is one of the darkest and most traumatized novella I have ever read. It’s one dark ride after another one. A sadness unlike anything I have experienced is brought forth from the words on every page. A misery of hell that appears to be a nightmare or is it? Readers will be stuck in suspense and intrigue even after the ending. Wow…explosive, edgy, and full of danger. Loss, love, and craziness that leaves more questions than answers. Both R.J. Bathgate and M.J. Hall have a raw talent for creating a thriller suspense that will blow readers away. From the beginning to end I was sucked into the fast-paced plot before me. If this is turned into a movie, I will forever have the worst nightmares imagined…overall, I highly recommend this novella to all. Definitely, a must read.

Review:

Reverie by Lauren Rico is a stunning contemporary novel that blew me away instantly. I was immediately drawn into the leading female character’s life story. Her troubled past to the present trouble brewing up…Love, hatred, abuse, lies…and danger wrapped up in one riveting tale. From a dysfunctional family with abuse going on to a young woman falling into a trap of abuse far greater than the one she escaped from as a child. This is a novel for adults only. There’s hot steamy sex…lies, betrayal,  murder, and beatings. Lauren Rico has masterfully created a novel that shows us the violence and threats that happen in real life. Sometimes there’s no justice…the good fall victim and to those that are unaware might just die for a selfish reason that was completely unexpected. The nightmare never ends…as Julia and her new love, Matthew, now fight for their lives. The stirred up the mess of a dangerous murderer, and now, he may just come after them next. The suspense and intrigue are high in this exciting and thrilling read. Reverie is an adventure that readers will carry with them forever. Overall, I highly recommend this beautifully told story, to readers everywhere.

The Nightmare Train by Danielle Urban

My family and I were at a train station. Where we we headed I couldn’t say. Once on the train, it was nice. Luxrious in a way. Food and drink provided for no charge. Beautiful landscapes…if one were to look out the window. Then an image ran through my mind. Two high walls reaching to the clouds made of solid rock, a railroad in the center. This railroad was laid inbetween these two high walls. secuding out the rest of the world. Some light shone downward and then instead of seeing landscapes I saw dozens if not hundreds of dead bodies of humans pied skyhigh on both sides of the train. Then anoother image  flashed through my mind, this time it was bodies laying in the same train I was in except the train ddnt have the fancy or authentic train look like it did now. Bodies were piled up with gun shot wounds. Those who were still alive and moving were shot unti they moved no more. Then another image came up, the bodies were being tossed out the sides as the train moved. Not one survived. Those who pretended to be dead and were tossed barely made it still alive. If they were found alive they were forced to work and once they completed their work they were shot. No one knew what was happening.. the guns had silencers on them. The passengers were of men, women, and children. All had their belongings taken from them. Before they were hurdled together and shot until they dropped like flies on the floors.

Soon, I noticed the same two stone walls, my fear instantly kicked in. Then instead of seeing all the bodies I saw homes being built. The workers looked like death. How they held on was beyond me. I knew when the train ride finally stopped, that we all would die too. Just like all those I saw moments ago.

A man like I saw in my image came up to me, asking for my phone. I handed it to him. Knowing he was pure evil. My whole body tensed up. He must have noticed because he stopped and looked into my eyes. I wanted to scream. I wanted to run and warn everyone else in the other cars. I was in the first car with my family and many others. They always start with the first car, I heard someone say. I turned and saw the dead bodies. They were there standing by me. They asked me, “are you ready?”

I didn’t answer for something compelled me to turn back around and face the man..before me. I held up my hand. All the guns from the gunmen were taken up into the air…pointing at the gunmen. Then with a snap of my fingers the triggers went off. Of course no one heard the shots because just like visions, there were silencers on the guns. No one knew what was happening except that guns floated above shooting at the once armed men. Everyone was shocked into silence..pondering what just happened.

The evil man looked at me. I asked for my phone back. He just stood there. A few second ticked on by..then my phone came up to my hands. I dialed 911. The moment I did this. The train automatically picked up speed. It was going too fast. I almost fell as with the other passengers including the evil man. I felt the evilness coming off him in vibes. A cold sweat dripped down my spine causing me to shiver. People were now panicking. The train was once back to where we loaded onto the train. We all got off and as we did. The train with the evil man speed back to where it took us. What happened to the train and the man after that I didn’t know. All I knew was that the police were there questioning everyone and the dead gunnmen were laying on the floor by the entrace to the train. No one could exlpain it not even me. But I knew some how that this was not the end of the nightmare train. The dead were angry, the evil man was still alive and those poor souls I saw building are stuck in a hell hole that no man wants to go near.

Evil lurked heavily there.

For now, we were safe.

I was free.

But was it the end?
