Missing by Roger Rapel

I thought this book was interesting to read.  The illegal sex trafficking circle was something I have read about in other books.  This book kept me wanting to find out what would happen next. Jim Broadbent investigates and this character was entertaining to me.  This was a bit graphic but I would expect that because of the story being told.  I enjoyed it.  *This book was given to me for free at my request from a LibraryThing Giveaway and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Always Here by S.L. Mauldin

I enjoyed this book.  Another great book by this author.  I think this could be a lifetime movie.  I loved to sing in school myself so I related to these characters.   The story was great!  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Life Sliding by S.L. Mauldin

I think this is a great book.  A real coming of age book in my opinion.  The story deals with many things that high school is all about and still happens in every school liking bulling, hate and more.  This makes me glad I am not still in high school but it was a good book.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Farewell Keystone by Cory Clement

This book was not really what I thought it would be.  It was good but it was also a bit slow for me.  I understand what the author was doing but I just think I did not connect as much as I wanted to with this book. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  3/5 Stars

Magic Calls (Echoes Book 1) by Miriam Greystone

This book was awesome!  I can’t wait to read more in this series.  This is my first book by this author and I think she has caught me in her web!  The characters were great in this book and the world was exciting and fresh new ideas.  The twists in the story line were great.  I loved it what more can I say!  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

How to Save an Undead Life (Book 1) by Hailey Edwards

I really enjoyed this book.  I think my favorite character was “Wolly” the house.  But I loved the banter Grier and Boaz have through this book.  I loved the comic relief and I could see this series making a cut movie series of TV series.  I think this series has great potential to be pick up either way.   Great book and I will be glad to read the next book in the series!  4/5 Stars

Ghost Slayer by Majanka Verstraete   ARC—Publication Date 4/24/2018

I was very excited to read this book.  I loved the cover and it caught me and pulled me in to look closer at this book. I liked that the main character, Kaelyn, likes to kill ghosts but I was confused a little in the beginning of the book because the author didn’t tell me enough about the characters or pull me into their lives the way I was hoping.  All in all, this book was not bad but I was hoping for more.  “This book was given to me for free at my request by NetGalley and I provided this voluntary review.”  3/5 Stars

Fated Loss by Claudia Caren

This book was very good and hooked me right away.  Rose Kristal is a normal girl until her 16th birthday and everything changes.  Oh wow does everything change.  Rose doesn’t remember much about her life until her birthday.  This book was exciting and I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next!  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

The Blade Witch by Nygel Oglesby

I really enjoyed this book. Estra was a interesting character and a bit spunky.  I think this was a great book and I can’t wait to see what the author has for us next.  I also think the book ended much better than I thought, at first, I wondered if the author would be me hanging on. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Soul of Stone by Leo Romero

I have really enjoyed this series.  Draxil and Gabriel are great characters. the twists in this book were great.  I loved every moment!  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Scarlett by Elle Klass

This book caught my attention right away.  Scarlett did not have an easy life but I who has? The book was easy for me to relate too.  I have not read much from this author before but I like the style of this book.  I will see what else Elle Klass writes and keep her in mind for the future.  I like the part of Scarlett seeing ghosts and I like the many new things this author bring to this book.  there were many characters and I enjoyed the book.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

More great book reviews from Aly! Be sure to check out her site for more!

Affinity’s Window by Douglas Wilson

This book is great!  Super Creepy and scary.  I loved it! I was hoping we would get some “next generation” horror authors to come out.  I feel I have not found good horror authors in a while this author may be up with Stephen King and more.   I would read more from this author.  I can’t wait to see what else this author can do in horror! *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Control FreakZ by Michael Evans

I think this book was interesting.  It did keep my attention and I kept reading until the end.  I liked the characters and I think this was a great start for a new author. Teens escaping a death sentence from their government.  The book had some great action as well.  I can’t wait to see what else this author can write.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

The Extraction by Steven F. Freeman

This book to me is a recipe for success.  I really liked this character ex-FBI criminal profiler Decimus Farr and I enjoy a good mystery.  I love when authors take me on a ride with books.  I feel this book was all that and more. This book is written well and full of suspense and I think you should check it out and see how much you like it too.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Paradise is Not Forever by Vera Fernandez

This is a good story of romance and being in love. I remember the whirlwind you can get caught up in.  This story was great! I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters of Lexie and Owen they seemed real to me.   *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Angels Cry by Tina Glasneck

This book to me was a little dark but I enjoyed that about it.  I think it fits how the author wanted us to feel about this book.  I enjoyed the up and downs and twists, I was on the edge of my seat of this book.  This book is not all roses and sunshine but does reflect things that are real about life.  I think the characters felt real to me and I was lost in this book. *This book was given to me for free at my request in LibraryThing giveaway and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Diary of Anna the Girl Witch by Vic Connor

A witch book, I have to say I have not outgrown witches.  I think this book was a fun read.  Anna finds out she is from a family of witches and powerful well known ones.  Can be good and bad right?  Check this book out to see what you think.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Triorion: Awakening by L. J. Hachmeister

Wow, this was a fun read for me.  I wouldn’t say I read a lot of Sci-fi but I enjoyed this book.  The characters were great the story was suspenseful and exciting.  I enjoyed this book. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Girl Fighter by Cyan Night

Aliyah is a very likable and exciting character in this book.  She feels very much like a real person to me.  I wanted to keep reading to find out more about her story. I never really enjoyed fighting but I see why Aliyah feels the way she does in this book and what made her a cage fighter. This book was a fun, intense, and has great up and downs for Aliyah.  I enjoyed it more than I first thought I would. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

What Haunts Me by Margaret Millmore

I was so excited to read this book.  It was everything I hoped it would be.  I am so glad I got a chance to check it out. I really enjoy ghost stories and the fact that George can kill them was a good part to this book.  It made this book stand out.  I could see this book as a TV series.  It was this good for me.  This book was great and enjoyed it from page 1 to the end.  I would read more from this author.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

Stolen by Jessica Titone

A interesting look at a romance with some fantasy. Ella is a character I can relate to.  I felt the different emotions this book gave me and it was a good read.  I don’t think I could be a ballerina but I do love to tap dance.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Dark and Broken Souls by E.J. King

This book had me at vampires.   I really enjoyed this book. A new take on vampires, which I would think now days is not an easy thing to do.  I liked the characters and it reminded a little of my love for the Twilight Series.  *This book was given to me for free at my request at a LibraryThing giveaway and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Hiding by Jenny Morton Potts—-ARC —-Publication Date 2/1/2018

This book had from the beginning.  I loved the cover and everything about this book.  This is a new author for me and I would read more.  As the book promises it is a very gripping psychological thriller!  I enjoyed it very much.  You should check it out.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  5/5 Stars

All These Things: Maya Invictus by Mark Tiro

I liked this book better that the first book in this series.  Maya is a gifted lawyer and she has a hard case in this book.  This book kept me reading until the end. *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  4/5 Stars

Implicit:Soul Invictus by Mark Tiro

I felt like this book was slow in the beginning but once I got passed that I liked this book.  This story took me on a journey, really many journeys with the main character, Maya.  I felt that this book was interesting and deep at the same time.  This book left me with many things to think about I my own life.  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*  3/5 Stars

Land of Strength and Sorrow by Cassandra Fear

What a wonderful story.  I think this author has great ideas in this book and she made me “see” what she was writing about.  I saw it come it life in my head.  The characters and the world she built. Faeries, giants, magical creatures, and a magical world, I enjoyed it all very much.  I would read more from this author.  I have to say though with the last name of Fear, when I saw this authors name I thought of R.L. Stine’s Fear street books and I wanted Cassandra Fear to write books in the horror genre.  But I enjoyed this book so what do I know.  lol  *This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.*   5/5 Stars
