Book Reviews

I have decided that I enjoy reading so much, and want to help out some new authors get their name out there. Since I hope one day that I can do this as well. Just send me an e-mail (which you can find in the contact section) and tell me a little about your book or give me a link to follow to your blog about your book. Let me know the date the novel is supposed to be released so I can hopefully have it read by then. If your book is already out and you still want me to review it just let me know there is no specific date. But as always it is my decision to read and review a book. Please do not send me an e-mail of your book hoping I will review it, be courteous. Also down below I explain my new rating system.

Reading and Reviewing in Progress:

Obstacles by Chris Reardon 

Genre: Fantasy
Published: October 1, 2013
Publisher: Solstice Publishing
Pages: 265
Synopsis:A child will die. You're afraid to live. Would you go to all lengths to save him? Darkness knows no bounds, as Alcott, an African American doctor sees all too well. The man is petrified by death. His fragile existence rests at the mercy of the universe. This fact is far too much for him to handle. From unyielding nightmares to elevator terrors, he's lost in paranoia.

Assigned to look after an ill child, Alcott's horrors only heighten. Gari is a nine-year-old boy with a fatal disease. He will surely pass on within the year. Alcott bonds with him more and more each day. Part of him knows this grim fate just isn't right.

Alcott befriends a hospital patient. This lunatic forces him to lug home an ancient text on bringing back the dead. Despite the man's obvious dementia, Alcott attempts the scheme. Charging up a cliff, he recites the chant over ocean gusts.

A god woman glides in from the horizon. She instructs Alcott on the trials to save Gari's life. These fearsome Obstacles require true strength. From battling sharks to wielding a flail, he must prove fortitude against genuine danger. Alcott decides his fate at this moment.

Death's claws shall not grasp Gari's soul.

Power of Gods (Book #2) by Nancy Madore

Genre: Fantasy
Published: June 15, 2013
Publisher: Createspace
Pages: 484

After the events of the first installment of the Legacy of the Watchers, Nadia Adeire now finds herself inextricably tied to the Raphaelians, that secret society dating back to the Essenes. Her former life—and all that she previously believed in—has been shattered, and she needs their help to pick up the pieces and start again.

As the Legacy of the Watchers continues, Nadia is once again drawn into the mysterious underworld of the hidden ones, but this time there may be even more at stake. Threats of Armageddon loom in the background as Nadia and the Raphaelians attempt to decipher a formula that may hold the key to unconscionable power. In the course of their investigation, they will once again retrace the steps of the hidden ones back to the ancient world, this time to King Solomon and his legendary djinn—and the part they played in the fall of Israel. There, they will find hints of what Asmodeous had planned for the not-so-distant future. Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, Lilith is already attempting to finish what Asmodeous started.

Rating System:

5 Stars:
★★★★★ - Five stars basically means I love this book and will be rereading most likely in the future. The ones I five star most likely belong to a long series that I highly enjoy and will be continuing with. Will most likely read all books by said author as well.

4 Stars:
★★★★☆ - Four stars means there were some things wrong with it that I may not have liked but overall it was good, probably will reread if needed.

3 Stars: 
★★★☆☆ - Three stars means that it was okay not great but not horrible. I probably wont be rereading this if it ever did come to that but it was enjoyable enough.

2 Stars:
★★☆☆☆ - Two stars means that it was not my favorite. There were a few to many flaws for me to enjoy the book properly.

1 Star:
★☆☆☆☆ - One star means that I really didn't like this book, and had a hard time finishing it if I finished it at all. Though I try to finish a book even if I don't really want to. The plot could have been better or to many structural mistakes for my liking. Means also that most of the character weren't likable or I didn't really care what happened to them.
