  • Dead As Dutch on March 16, 2012

    Director Stan Heberling’s well laid plans to complete his Senior Film Project in one short weekend were quickly dissolving into oblivion. After all, he had cast the audacious Keisha, and the self-proclaimed martyr, Bryce, as the lead actors in “Letter 13″. Even traveling to the film location in the Catskill Mountains proved that the film’s goals were in jeopardy. Mishap after mishap befall the young film crew even before they find a strange and mysterious locked chest protruding from the riverbank. Could this be the long lost and cursed treasure of the devilish gangster Dutch Shultz? The course of their predicament disintegrates further when after becoming lost in the woods, Stan and his gang cross paths with a backwoods yokel who seems to like shooting everything that moves. Add to that it seems a batch of hideous zombie gangsters is chasing them. The situation might make one wonder if they will ever make it out of the woods ALIVE! It does seem possible they may become the victims of a cursed treasure. I found it to be quite interesting the way the author wove each character’s background into the story. It allows you to integrate yourself into their lives as well as their adventure. The interlude’s of ‘character breaks’ serves to not only build solidarity between the reader and the characters, but it also leads to you anticipate the chaos and mayhem that you know (and expect) will follow. Although this book is really geared more towards teens and young adults, I found it to be quite enjoyable. If I were to tell the truth, I would have to say that I even laughed at some of the comical drama between Stan and the other characters. I believe Rich Docherty has richly combined humor, horror, and fantasy in his debut novel “Dead as Dutch”. http://sweepstakelover.blogspot.com/2012/03/book-review-dead-as-dutch.html
  • The Conduit on July 17, 2012

    “The Conduit”, which welcomes you in the world of fantasy, offers you the door of adventure with the three main characters; Celeste, Gabe and Kendall who are siblings. When the actions happen, you feel the familial tie between them that is supported with courage in a real cooperation. All in all, how many times in your life you can see a dragon and fight with it? And don’t forget the supernatural powers. :) This is a fun read which you can complete in one or two sittings. You will really enjoy the book as the author sometimes uses the language in the humorous way unlike many other fantasy book stereotypes. PS: By the way, I’ve always dreamed of being able to fly (this is the power of Kendall in the book); I used to collect bird feathers and try to fly with them like a bird when I was a small kid :D http://sweepstakelover.blogspot.com/2012/07/book-review-giveaway-conduit.html
