I may be a nurse by profession but an author by heart. I have been writing stories for many years, both in my head and on paper because I’ve always had a love for books ever since spending Saturdays at the library as a young child. Within a book the mind can travel to worlds of the imagination and the beyond. I finally took the plunge and published my first novel last year, a young adult urban fantasy titled “Connor” and an adult horror short story titled “Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess”. Both are the first editions of many to come as I stay locked up in my office in Colorado spinning more tales.

"Connor" by Dormaine G. is a quirky but also dark fun read for young adults and those still young at hearts. Connor is a long suffering and somewhat cynical teenager with a good sense of dark humour and with guts. As middle child she might feel left out but she has a special gift and soon finds others who share her supernatural talents.
During her supernatural adventures she remains herself, a student, a daughter, a sister and a regular girl, which is what I loved most about this book. The adventures are exciting but she does not become superwoman or suddenly completely perfect. This 'realism' within the parameters of the genre is very well placed and makes her a very relateable character.
The book ends at a good point but leaves some more mysteries to be solved for the next book. A great set up for a promising series, and very enjoyable.

by Dormaine G
How special is Connor?
Connor is special. At first she is thrilled. Then she begins to see being special means being singled out and not always by those who are loving and kind.
Author Dormaine G has given us a protagonist we can very much identify with, a fifteen-year-old girl who has always known she was different and who now discovers her origins have been kept secret from her all her life long. Connor can become invisible. Connor has always been a fighter and can hold her own with most – beings. She can run faster than ordinary humans. She can hear things from long distances.
But what does all of this mean? This is Book I of her quest to find the answer.
Deeply engrossing, well-written (although a few quirks and typos), and full of adolescent passion, you will love reading Connor.

(Disclaimer) I was given this free ebook in exchange for an honest review
First of all I am a sucker for anything paranormal. Then when you throw in a bit of romance and that Love/Hate relationship with it (sighs)....you have me all the way. I have a soft spot for the hurt/bad guys. The plot was really thought out and the characters were beautifully written.
It starts out when Conner first discover her abilities(super powers). She then meets Antony aka Tony and group of friends who share the same type of abilities. Once they go searching for their answers as to who and what they are the action begins. It was non stop and I felt that it ended on a great note. It was sort of a cliffhanger but not to bad.
Obviously questions were raised towards the end but what I loved was that Ms. Dormaine didn't full on give the answers that were raised while reading. It was just enough to kind of get you thinking and making sure you keep watch for the second book.
Overall this was a great book. I cannot wait to read the next one and I would recommend this book in a heartbeat!

I must first say I am not a sci fi fan. I love how you don't have to be one to love this book. I was drawn in by the characters and their lives and before I knew it I was hooked! A good story, a good plot...that's what I love and this supplied me with more than enough. I'm curious to know what is going to happen next and hope another book is in the works. By Sabrina RP
