“One Small Sacrifice” (Shadows of New York Book 1) by Hilary Davidson

  The blurb of this book described the main character, Alex Traynor, who was suffering from PTSD, as getting away with murder. At least that’s what New York Police Detective Sheryn Sterling believes. A year later Traynor’s fiancée Emily disappears, Sterling is determined to prove he has killed again.

The less graphic version of Toxic: An Electric Eclectic Book by author Karen J. Mossman takes a softer look at a dystopian society where humans, now … Continue reading “Toxic: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Karen J. Mossman

The Trusted (The Trusted Thriller Series Book 1) By Michelle Medhat

I was drawn to this book by both the cover and the first line of the blurb. “He’s a husband, a killer, and the only man who can save the world…” I’d read earlier short stories by author Michelle Medhat and liked her writing style. “The Trusted” is unlike anything else I’d read by Medhat. A brilliant combination of terrorism, spies, and the supernatural, the … Continue reading The Trusted (The Trusted Thriller Series Book 1) By Michelle Medhat

“Frozen Stiff” (A Chase Adams FBI Thriller Book 1) by Patrick Logan

When I see a book that has a female FBI agent as its chief protagonist I can’t resist. The blurb describing Frozen Stiff is intriguing. Although I never heard of author Patrick Logan, I decided to give it a try. Touted as a “female sleuth” and “police procedural” story I looked forward to a compelling read. The prologue was good. It showed grit and the promise … Continue reading “Frozen Stiff” (A Chase Adams FBI Thriller Book 1) by Patrick Logan

 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.

Gradually linking what at first … Continue reading “Maze Master” by Kathleen O’Neal Gear

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.
