  • Golden Blood on Dec. 23, 2011

    Golden Blood by Melissa Pearl is the first book of the Time Spirit Trilogy, a work that is planned to not be finished until February of 2012. Currently there are only two books written; but because the story deals with time travel, I am fairly confident we can expect the author’s prediction of her writing speed to be fairly accurate. As we learn in the book that the knowledge of time traveling abilities is not a topic allowed to be shared among normal humans, I dare not say more of how Melissa could know what she claims; I just find her future knowledge to be perfectly fun! When Gemma, a girl who can jump through time, accidentally makes contact with Harrison, the normal human boy she loves, at the wrong time; she finds she has unintentionally thrown him a few centuries into the past. Now the problem becomes getting him back to the present, even though that requires help from the rest of her family who don’t want anything to do with him, and are stuck wondering if it would not be easier to simply leave this new problem where he is.
  • The Adventures of Mrs Browning on April 09, 2012

    The Adventures of Mrs. Browning by Marcia Carrington is a short story about an old woman who seems to have a rather unremarkable life. Ever sense her husband has died, Mrs. Browning lives alone in her simple house that sits in a quiet neighborhood of New York. With the seemingly boring routines she enacts, the old widow is easily ignored. Old and boring is the last way she would be described by her mysterious suitor, Conrad. Mrs. Browning may be nearly twice his age, but when Friday comes, there is no way he’d enjoy it more than to spend the time with her. Living this double life must be quite an effort, but she’d have it no other way.
  • Tales of Aradia The Last Witch Volume 1 on Aug. 27, 2012

    Tales of Aradia, The Last Witch(Volume 1) by L.A. Jones is a fun book about supernatural folk who live among us. Not just werewolves and vampires here, but everything from leprechauns and fairies to witches. Actually, let’s make that just one witch. You see, back around the time of the Salem witch trials there was also a bit of anti-witch fever among the world of the hidden races and it was believed that every witch was killed from existence; in fact, for a fair amount of time in this story no one can even guess what Aradia is. And Aradia herself? All she knows about herself and her own past is that she was found alone in the wilderness as a baby by the couple who eventually adopt her. Her human ‘parents’ of course notice and realize the amazing magical feats she is capable of. They help her to keep her powers hidden so that she can have a chance at a normal life. It is through this need to appear normal that they unintentionally throw their daughter into a veritable hurricane of supernatural forces. To escape the questions that are asked when a silly schoolkid argument unintentionally brings forth a display of her powers, the family decides to move away from their home in Arizona to go to Salem, Massachusetts. This is a city that finds itself to serve as something of a mixing pool of the supernatural. A happily paranormal version of New York.Tales of Aradia, The Last Witch(Volume 1) by L.A.

  • Scat (Scat's Universe, Book 1) on Sep. 17, 2012

    Scat by Jim Graham is a great, futuristic tale involving everything you could expect to come from a Sci-fi story; be it rebels wanting to break their chains to Earth or frightening, very god-like aliens. The word Scat is actually a person, a high ranking Earth soldier with the last name Scatkiewicz. Soon after the story begins, he is hired to act as a spy and help keep an eye on the ever-growing society of those who live away from the planet, people who find that their lives and work only produce what is endlessly gobbled up by the very overpopulated Earth. Living as a spy to try getting close to people can start to make that spy see things from the ‘enemy’s’ point of view. Before long Scat almost considers himself to to be one of the colony-rebels. His experience as a soldier before-hand makes him to be a quite worthy adversary. The problem that his enemies face is deciding if it would do them better to rid the universe of is anger for them or to try using his strength as their own asset. This story had me riveted. I enjoyed the interactions between the people, and the descriptions of futuristic technology. The idea of the controller aliens and their technology caught me as sickeningly fun.
  • Birdie Down on Jan. 15, 2013

    Birdie Down by Jim Graham is an interesting side story that takes place in Graham’s Scat universe. In 2210, rebels led by Sebastian Scatkiewicz (known as ‘Scat’) are protesting the corporate rule of space. As his team is reaching out to cause trouble on one of the worlds owned by the enemy Lynthax corporation, a ship containing the rebel and former police officer Andrew Goosen (known as ‘Birdie’) goes down and must be abandoned for the good of the rebellion. Birdie now has the enjoyment of trying to run with/rescue a friend and college (Tillier Bing) who was hurt so that he doesn’t remember knowing Birdie, the entire rebellion he was fighting for, or even what he had claimed was his own name. If that wasn’t enough, the two of them are stuck in a swamp swarming with giant lizards and horrible spider-rat creatures so sickening that you wouldn’t even leave a hated enemy to fend with them. For everyone who loved the first one, this book is not to be missed. As the story is slightly set aside from it’s predecessor, it should stand alone well enough, but as the two works fit together into an elaborate, well put together tail, there is no real reason to miss either one. I hear Jim has a third story in the works; I am eagerly awaiting getting the chance to read it
