New Releases!


 23:27 by H.L. Roberts 
Blurb: Fame. Money. Glory. These were all the things that you would expect from being famous. The bait that the producers of the industry would tempt you with to get you on their side. What they don't tell you though are all the 
inner tragedies that come along just as quickly. They don't tell you about the heartache that occurs when you realize that this wasn't what you wanted at all. They don't tell you about the pressure that's always on the verge of crushing you when you're forced to do everything that the public demands for and not what you truly desire. They don't tell you about the self hatred that would soon take over your entire being at the thought that you will never be good enough. No - they don't tell you these things at all. But, Lilith Rose will. When Lilith Rose, lead singer to one of the most famous rock bands around gets tired of all the lies and secrets that comes with being famous. She decides that it's time for all of it to stop and ends up revealing everything on a Facebook live stream. The result... "Part of me wants to die tonight, part of me wants it to be an accident, and part of me wants someone to notice and save me." - Lilith Rose

Meet Miller Fourthsearcher!

Say a great big hello to Miller, the knife-throwing rancher’s son found in The Keeper’s Way series.

A country boy through and through, Miller lived in Wyoming where he raised cattle and trained horses with his parents. He was the oldest of six adopted children. Miller was brought up in a loving family and grew with an appreciation for hard work.

He was fifteen when Dehmons came for him while he was finishing up barn chores with his three brothers. His family was slaughtered despite his best efforts. Before he could be killed he was saved by his future fellow Searchers Jason, Ronan, and Petr.

Of all of the Searchers, Miller had the hardest time accepting his new role. He couldn’t deny the truth, but the loss of his family left him feeling bitter. Though the feeling lessened over time it never fully went away until years later when they discovered Autumn. Not only is she the Keeper, it is also discovered she is Miller’s biological sister. Finding his long-lost sibling gives Miller a sense of redemption. He failed his family and he is determined not to fail Autumn.

Having spent countless hours in his family’s barn throwing knives at targets, Miller is the one Searcher who was accustomed to his choice of weapon before the Dehmons came for him. As a Searcher, he is also gifted with magical abilities. ‘Miller's ability reflected his already honed skills of knife throwing. After recovering from receiving his new power, he jerked his arm forward, as if throwing a knife. A razor-sharp bar of pale yellow light shot out and sliced right through a tree before disappearing.’

Miller’s virtue is wisdom, a quality he uses to not only strategize against Dehmons but to also help his sister see sense when she is being stubborn.

Review for Nova by Joanne Van Leerdam

Author: Joanne Van Leerdam

Genre: Poetry

My Rating: Five Stars

Blurb: 

Explore with the poet what it is to be human: to love, to celebrate, to grieve, to feel pain, and to overcome, through powerful images of fallenness, hope and redemption.

My Review:

Wow. That is the first thing that came to my mind when I started reading this collection of poems. Trust me, there is a lot packed into that short little word, too. To clarify, here are some other words that come to mind to describe Nova. Brilliant. Spectacular. Gorgeous. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Joanne Van Leerdam's poetry does everything great poetry should do. It entertains. It evokes emotion. It inspires. These poems of growth, loss, and love definitely do not disappoint!

Every single poem in this collection is amazing and I have found some new favorites that I will most certainly be reading over and over! I am looking forward to discovering more works by Joanne and I highly recommend you check out her poetry, as well!

If you're searching for some great poetry, Nova is available on Amazon!

Review for Phoenix Always by Jae Dawn


 
Author: Jae Dawn
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal

Blurb:

From Romania to New Orleans through nine centuries and thirty-nine lives, Phoenix Maison remembers them all. What she doesn’t remember is how she came to be trapped in this cycle of reincarnation. Every year in every life, she prepares for her possible death, but this life is different from the others. She loves her family and her native New Orleans and longs for a future with her girlfriend. 

Determined to break her curse, Phoenix stumbles down an oddly familiar path back to the only life she doesn’t remember, where her immortal soul lived in an immortal body. 

Even as bloodless corpses pile in her beloved city, Phoenix still hopes to escape her destiny. But her seemingly endless time is running out and she must either embrace what she was always meant to be or let humanity meet a brutal fate. 
The future of mortals and immortals alike lies in her choice.

My Rating: 5 stars

My Review:

Phoenix Always begins with Phoenix Maison, an eighteen-year-old young woman who has lived thirty-nine lives. She is finally happy in her current life with adoring parents, a girlfriend, and a city she loves. However, her clock is ticking down before she once again dies and is reborn. She may be able to break the curse over her but is the cost higher than she is willing to pay?

This novel had me hooked from the beginning! It has great pace and never a dull moment. The way the author interlaced fragments of the protagonist's past with the present is flawless. I loved Phoenix! Her life is so fascinating and she's a strong heroine. You can feel how much she loves her family and friends, and can empathize with the struggles she faces. I really enjoyed the New Orleans setting and with the authentic descriptions of the city you can just see yourself there.

The entire concept of Phoenix Always is absolutely intriguing. There are immortal beings, magic, and plenty of unique characters. It's very well-written, exciting, and has twists and turns throughout that keep you wondering what will happen right up to the end. I look forward to reading the next one!



You can find this amazing book on Amazon!
