A Thousand Tears

What a great short story! Captured me with the first line and didn't let go until the last word. Absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking. Spectacular!
Not Magic Enough
on April 11, 2011
If the cover of the book and the trailer don't grab your attention, the first lines will. Valerie Douglas writes a beautiful, moving story that crosses the boundaries of race (Elf and human), class and time. Love conquers all in her world and it is a beautiful sight to behold. Very well written, her attention to detail draws you into the world she's created and leaves you there in the middle of everything until the final words. Very beautifully done!

** SOME SPOILERS MAY ENSUE! **
By the time I picked up The Soulkeepers, I had read a lot about it and couldn't wait to dive in. I wasn't disappointed!
From the moment Jacob wakes up in a hospital bed with a "damaged brain", he is a very relatable character, especially for me personally. My heart went out to him as he journeyed from not caring about anyone or anything to opening his heart and having faith. You can't help but root for Jacob to come around. A fantastic good vs. evil plot that will continue to grow as the story continues in subsequent novels.
One thing that I found entrancing was how Jacob was forced to trust Dr. Silva because he had no other choice. To not to meant having no chance of finding his mom. And when his powers became evident... I wasn't 100% sure about Dr. Silva until the very end, the epilogue actually and what we learn there. Very well done!
One more thing I loved is G.P. Ching's take on fallen angels. Gone are the sad, sorry beings who only want to be loved and find salvation for the ability to return to Heaven. Ching's fallen angels are gritty, edgy, and hedonistic. I LOVED IT! They indulge in everything sinful and self-indulging, very appropriate considering why they are fallen.
I would consider this book a contemporary Christian thriller. The creatures and activities of Jacob's world are brought to life in HD color - you can't help but get sucked in from the first words. I definitely can't wait for the continuation of Jacob, Malini, and Dr. Silva's journey.
A Second Chance
on April 23, 2011
I was fortunate enough to receive a free e-copy of Nicole Ireland's A Second Chance. Let me tell you people, you have to read it. The emotional intensity of the writing had me in tears throughout half the novel. (I'm sorry to say that if it scares anyone away). Despite the tears, it's an amazing, well written novel that deserves a LOT of love! (Don't mind me, I'm an easily emotional mom of two.)
Having read this right after reading Dream Smashers by Angela Carlie, I've had a very emotional week in the reading world. Also, having just read Dream Smashers, I have to say that A Second Chance falls in the same stellar category. It's very real, very beautiful, very powerful. It's yet another read that should not be missed!
5 STARS and 5 TISSUES go to this amazing novel!

Sammie Spencer makes me want to work in a bar... though only if I can have my own Jackson Vance. Wow. The imagery, the words, the action; it all flows seamlessly until you lose hours of time but gain so much more by reading this book. The characters are instant friends, so believable they might as well walk off the page. Jenny made me laugh, Erika reminded me of myself, Jackson was knock-your-socks-off charming and delicious. Mmm, I'll never think of Amaretto the same again. :)

Valerie Douglas has done it again! Irish Fling is a beautifully written novel that weaves love with mystery, finding one's self and making your own destiny. Douglas's descriptions of the Emerald Isle took me there once again. Could not put this down until the very last word. I would highly recommend this one for anyone who loves a great romance!
Literary Lunes Magazine, September issue

Very well put together. This is another great issue of Literary Lunes. I'm glad it's now available on SW; I can read in on my Kindle for PC, which it looks pretty good on.
