“The Lost Angel” by Adam C. Mitchell

I’ve read some of Adam Mitchell’s short stories and was eager to read a longer length novella. The Lost Angel did not disappoint. Mitchell captures the flavor of 1940’s noir and distributes throughout the book, never losing a beat from start to finish. Eddie Kovakx is a down on his luck thief. One night he runs into an old adversary, Tony Santeeni, drunk and rowdy … Continue reading “The Lost Angel” by Adam C. Mitchell

“Elevation” by Stephen King

            Sometimes I feel like Annie Wilkes from Stephen King’s Misery. In reality, I am most likely not Stephen King’s biggest fan, but I imagine I rank pretty high in a group of millions. My hard copy of his latest, Elevation arrived in the mail last Friday. I happened to have a book by two more of my ‘favorite’ authors and was faced with the … Continue reading “Elevation” by Stephen King

“Mastered by the Zandians: Alien Warrior Reverse Harem Romance” by Renee Rose, Rebel West, Alexis Alvarez

       I’ve been intrigued by the idea of romance with an alien since I was eleven years old and fell in love with Mr. Spock from “Star Trek”. So it wasn’t a big leap to develop an interest in the new, hot, alien/human romances. Finding Mastered by the Zandians: Alien Warrior Reverse Harem Romance, written by two of my favorite erotic romance authors, … Continue reading “Mastered by the Zandians: Alien Warrior Reverse Harem Romance” by Renee Rose, Rebel West, Alexis Alvarez

People of the Morning Star: A People of Cahokia Novel (Book One of the Morning Star Series) (North America’s Forgotten Past 21) W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O’Neal Gear

Cahokia was an enormous city that “at its height, covered more than six square miles around what is now St. Louis.” Ancient people often packed up and moved to the great city. … Continue reading People of the Morning Star: A People of Cahokia Novel (Book One of the Morning Star Series) (North America’s Forgotten Past 21) W.

“The Battered Wife And Her Five Little Kids All Dressed In White” by George Garrigues

I was attracted to “The Battered Wife And Her Five Little Kids All Dressed In White”, a work of non-fiction by George Garrigues, because I was a battered wife for ten years. The fact that these events took place in the early 1900’s piqued my curiosity. I wondered how different things were in those days. This is the story of Margaret Claire Beutinger and her husband, … Continue reading “The Battered Wife And Her Five Little Kids All Dressed In White” by George Garrigues

“Maze Master” by Kathleen O’Neal Gear

 Maze Master by Kathleen O’Neal Gear fulfills my requirements for a great read. Brilliantly linking the past with a possible future, she lays the groundwork for a thrilling and terrifying apocalyptic journey. At first, I was slightly daunted by the scientific and mathematical references in the story. But, Gear skillfully provides plenty of clarification for even the most intimidated reader. Gradually linking what at first … Continue reading “Maze Master” by Kathleen O’Neal Gear

  A couple of things attracted me to this book. Number one, I read C.A. Sanders first book in The Watchmage Chronicles, The Watchmage of Old New York. I loved it. Secondly, the title of this book, Cold Iron. Cold iron was said to be harmful to witches, fairies, and ghosts. It was also thought to repel evil supernatural creatures.
