  • The One Betrayed by Yvette M Calleiro #Fantasy #Review #RRBC @YvetteMCalleiro

    The One Betrayed by Yvette M Calleiro #Fantasy #Review #RRBC @YvetteMCalleiro

    The One Betrayed is the third installment in the Chronicles of the Diasodz and shows what happened to Rafe after Sofia went with Ar’ch and Angel (basically an overlay of Book 2). This book is quite the page-turner, and I had a hard time putting it down even when my eyelids started to get heavy. […]

    Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore #Horror #Comedy

    I read Practical Demonkeeping when it was first published in 1992 and only remembered one scene from it, so when I came across it on Amazon I couldn’t resist getting a copy to rekindle the memories. I’m glad I did because this is a great read. I also learned that this is part of a […]

  • Baubles to Die For by Tonya Penrose #Cozy #Mystery

    Baubles to Die For by Tonya Penrose #Cozy #Mystery

    The way the lead characters are introduced and past events are discussed, I thought Baubles to Die For was two or three in the series. Then I noticed the statement in parenthesis,  A Shell Isle Mystery Book 1. The story follows Page Wright and her cousin Betsy Ross as they unravel a mystery that falls […]

  • Betaken by Drema Ferrell #Thriller #Review

    Betaken by Drema Ferrell #Thriller #Review

    Betaken is a fantastic look into a place that I’ve heard and seen stories about for years, giving a view that hooked me from the first page. It’s about dark events that happened in the late 1970s to early 1980s in the Appalachians. From the first chapter, I was whisked away into this strange world […]

  • The Edge of Fear by Maura Beth Brennan #RRBC #Thriller #Review

    The Edge of Fear by Maura Beth Brennan #RRBC #Thriller #Review

    The Edge of Fear is about a couple who lose their child to revenge kidnapping because the kidnapper thinks he’s owed because she’s his ex-wife. I was captivated by the intensity of the emotions that Brennan conveyed. Each page was filled with scenes that felt real. At one point in the story, it stalled, which […]

    Short Story #Reviews No Pedigree @NonnieJules & Unwelcomed @pdoggbiker #RRBC

    No Pedigree by Nonnie Jules No Pedigree tells the tale of Baylee (no spoilers because you must read this). The way Nonnie wrote this story made it feel real as I walked along with Baylee. This short story is a must-read as it conveys how racial bias plays too strong of a role in the […]

  • The Garden of Fragile Things by Richard J. O’Brien #Book #Review

    The Garden of Fragile Things by Richard J. O’Brien #Book #Review

    On Amazon, The Garden of Fragile Things is categorized as Occult Horror and Occult Fiction, but I’m not sure that’s where I’d put them because the horror was few and far between, and I just didn’t feel the occult. That aside, I enjoyed the book and found it entertaining. The memoir style is well crafted, […]

  • Death Room by R.P. Healy #Horror #Story #Review

    Death Room by R.P. Healy #Horror #Story #Review

    Death Room is a short story by R.P. Healy, revolving around Edward, a lonely office worker looking for something extreme. He takes to watching pay-per-view snuff films on the internet and finds himself experiencing what he’s viewed. Yes, this story is not for everyone with hardcore content, including murder, sexual content, and rape fantasies. Those […]
