on Jan. 09, 2013
Enter an interesting world of ghosts!

If you want to go ghost hunting then, this book will be a great guide to places you need to go for sure.

- The Sultan of Monte Cristo: First Sequel to The Count of Monte Cristo
on Jan. 28, 2013
First I would like to say, as the author mentions in the Introduction of this book: The Sultan of Monte Cristo: First Sequel to the Count of Monte Cristo, you will comprehend the story and its characters much better if you have read the ‘Count of Monte Cristo’ beforehand. It is not obligatory, but it will make you appreciate this book more.
With that said, when you start reading this book, you enter the whole new world with the each chapter – the world of adventure, intrigue, love, women, harems, love and betrayal. If someone decides to do a movie out of this book one day, it will be very diverse and colorful (at least it was so in my mind).
Not to add any spoilers, but just wait till you come to the last chapter – you will be shocked with how the story develops! Can’t wait for the sequel to be published!
- The Testimony of Satan
on Feb. 23, 2013
An extensive journey alongside good and evil!
The Testimony of Satan is a novel that unveils the shocking view of the world from the eyes of the Satan. There are so many aspects of human life and even current affairs discussed from the point of view what brings us humans closer to God, or closer to Satan. There is no third way. The book is quite extreme at some points, and it really makes you think and ponder what is wrong with the world we live in and what is the state of global consciousness.
Satan’s sin, the one because of which he was cast out of heaven, was in his demand to be recognized as equal with God versus being infinitely empowered by God. Since then, he is doing his best to stray us humans from God using tricks and deceptions that we are not aware of. By reading this book you will learn about these and learn how to defeat Satan.
This is an extraordinary novel that cannot be compared with anything I have read in my life. It is not a quick read, but worth your time!
- Rose Of Skibbereen, The Beginning
on March 17, 2013
This is a short story about a 16 years old Irish girl going to America to work to help her family survive. Although having several sisters and an older brother she assumed the role of a caretaker of the family and left Ireland in search of the better job. She is very conservative, wanting to come back to her loving country one day.
This is the first book in a series and the story started developing already with her romantic moments a night before she left Ireland and experiences in America on her new job as a servant.
The storyline flows nicely and characters are well developed and I can't wait to read more about them in the next installments! Keep an eye on this author and his work!
- Hypersleep Event Paradox
on March 18, 2013
This is a very exciting book, right from the first page! How would you have felt if you were taken from 15th to 21st century in a time machine, not expecting it at all? The main character did just that... and the story around it is incredible. It is all linked so well, the events in 15th century and the current ones!
The story flows easily with many dialogues, but also quite picturesque descriptions of medieval way of life and cities. But still, there are discussions about art, as well as poetry in this book. Of course, the story would not be as sweet if there was not some romance in it as well!
I would recommend this book to all history and adventure lovers out there!

- Toes in a Bucket
on April 20, 2013
Can an evil act, a crime, result in something good? Can a murderer be a sympathetic character? These two questions lead the author of this crime story to write it.
It is short, but dramatic story that will get you turning pages pretty quickly, excited to see what will happen next. And when you finish it, you will be thinking about those two questions from the beginning. Well, maybe it can. Read it and see what feelings it awakens in you.
In any case, anyone liking a good crime story will love it! Fully recommended!
- Corners - A Short Story of Murder
on April 20, 2013
This book is a real page turner. When you start reading it, you won't put it down till the end. It's not that long, but it will entertain you for an evening.
Another good thing is, after you finish it, it will get you thinking. Thinking about the turning points in anyone's life, about what if something like that happened to you, about revenge and whether it's really such a bad thing ...
I have enjoyed it very much and recommend this exciting read to anyone liking a good crime story!
