New Release: Life After the Undead

 

 

Life After the Undead Cover

 

Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.

Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fight not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.

Join Krista in her quest to survive in this thrilling apocalyptic novel by Pembroke Sinclair.

New Release Book Spotlight: First of Spring by Kelsey Jordan

First of Spring Cover

Caution: The Gardinian World Novels are a trip into a paranormal world where the gods of Gardas are real, the sex can be downright raunchy, and more than a few four letter words litter the page.

Forged from a childhood filled with bloodshed and death, Trent had been raised with a blade in his hands. He lives the life of a warrior and carves through his enemies as if seeking redemption for his mother’s ultimate sacrifice. As the acting Mikko of the Order of Rockys, Trent leads the most dominant Lycans in the world. For that reason alone, he has no use or understanding for those who wallow in their vulnerabilities, rather than exercise their power over their own destiny.

Aryana doesn’t dream of everlasting love. Her life is ruled by a song that echoes from the halls of Oblivia, a fate that came to her under the thundering hooves of the Mares of Night. She is going to die, but with no clue as to when or why, Aryana is forced to do everything she can to negate the haunting words of fate,

“Weakness dies and you are weak.”

But the gods are merciless in their meddling in the lives of powerful mortals and the ones they love. How far will Trent have to fall for the weak female who steps in his life and claims his soul?

Nightcrawler Review

 

Image from Goodreads

Image from Goodreads

Title:  Nightcrawler

Author:  John Reinhard Dizon

Published:  January 2014 by Black Rose Writing

Genre:  Action, Mystery, Thriller, Suspense

Purchase: Amazon

 

 

 

 

Nightcrawler is about the exploits of Sabrina Brooks, the heiress to the Brooks Chemical Company. Bree is trying to pick up the pieces after her father’s death, and is now in a position to live up to a personal commitment to use her resources to benefit the oppressed. She is intrigued by the notion of conducting a guerrilla campaign against drug gangs in New York City, and accesses top-secret archives detailing Government contracts for developmental research of chemical weapons. She uses her wizardry in chemistry to concoct weapons for her own use as a vigilante known as the Nightcrawler. NYPD undercover officer Hoyt Wexford becomes friends with Bree, and begins to suspect she knows the identity of the Nightcrawler. Her sudden interest in a series of terrorist attacks in the New York area makes him believe she may be investigating a group called the Octagon. He tries to follow her but is too late to prevent a showdown between the Nightcrawler and the mysterious Reaper. Hoyt rescues Bree and learns her secret identity, and together they plan to stop the Octagon once and for all in preventing a chemical attack in NYC on the Fourth of July. This is a pulse-pounding thriller straight out of world headlines, with an unforgettable heroine fighting impossible odds against fiendish arch-criminals. For suspense fans looking for some chick lit with international intrigue, Nightcrawler is one not to be forgotten.  (Blurb from Goodreads)

—————————————————————————————–

 

I liked the idea of this book; a kick ass female super hero.  Sabrina is rich and her father recently passed away, leaving her to decide if she should run his chemical company or walk away from it.  She always liked the idea of law enforcement and she decides to use what she has available in the company to take down the bad guys, even if it is illegal.  She throws on a suit as a disguise and calls herself the Nightcrawler.  Throw in a little romance with a police officer trying to find out who the Nightcrawler is, and you have yourself a good story.

Nightcrawler was a pretty good read.  I had a few problems with it though.  The flow of the book felt a little choppy.  Although I can’t quite put my finger on why, that’s just how it felt to me.  Also, former terrorist attacks on the US were mentioned; 9/11 and the Boston Massacre.  Now, it took me a few mentioning’s of the Boston Massacre to realize that the author was actually talking about the marathon bombings that happened last year.  At first I thought he was talking about the actual Boston Massacre that happened in 1770, and didn’t quite understand the relevance.  I can understand his confusion though, because after the marathon bombings the news called it that (Boston Massacre) a few times (I know, I’m from Boston.)

Overall though, it was a good story.  Maybe if someone could do a re-edit and fix the wording (change massacre to marathon bombing) and help the story flow a little smoother, then it wouldn’t be good; it would be awesome.

 

My Rating:  3 out of 5 stars
