- Verses of Athine: The Daughter of Ares Chronicles
on July 30, 2013
At first I considered this something that I wouldn’t typically read, however as someone that has studies the humanities, I began reading it and was very hooked after finding that McRoberts used mythological stories from the Greeks and Vikings.
I greatly enjoyed reading the many stories within this chronicles. I would have to say that my favorite character out of all of the many great ones within this work was Isri. She was so valiant, selfless and yet, finds herself with a happy ending.
I found it to be an easy read, aside from names that we are not used to today, I found myself completely entranced in the world of these characters. McRoberts writes from the character’s views, allowing you to feel like you are right there along for the ride. There is also plenty of action for all those actions lovers.
I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys a great read, those that enjoy fantasy, and those that love the mythology stories of old. I love the use of Olympus and the gods that reside, as well as her use of Valhalla and the gods that reside there. She was able to take names of the gods still known today, but create stories that haven’t been told, while following enough of the original to be believable.
- When Angels Fall
on Dec. 12, 2013
When Angels Fall is a book that I wasn’t quite prepared for, but kept me flipping pages until I was finished. Filled with demonic possessions, murder, scandals, and hard sex, it’s a book not for the faint hearted. Redd’s use of detail makes the particular scenes just as gruesome as you can imagine.
First, we’re introduced to David Thornbrook, the CEO and rich playboy, who’s faced with an embezzlement scandal that destroys his family name and the three generation-ran company of Thornebrook, Hall & Caine.
Next, we meet the fallen one, Margonne, a demonic angel forced with guarding hell’s gates as his punishment. After years of torturing those that enter hell’s domain, the ripple of a potential suicide is comes to him—David’s suicide—and Margonne uses it to his advantage. When the suicide doesn’t go through, Margonne shoots a bullet into David’s head and takes possession over his body. With the thoughts and memories of David, combined with his demonic angel powers, Margonne takes over David’s life and brings the company back around with harsh threats and brutality to all that stand in his way.
From there, the story is ripe with twists and turns, murder, sex, and occult rituals. In all, it’s a short novel (70 pages) that will have you cringing and your eyes bugging out in just the right places. Again, this is not for the readers who are faint of heart or tend to shy away from gruesome and sexually charged literature.
- A Love Beyond Time
on Aug. 20, 2014
The first in Craddock’s the "Power of Love Quartet," is an intelligent story of true love in its most creative form. The use of description throughout the novel is very well done, making you feel as though you’re the one experiencing it for yourself. My heart was caught in moments of flutter, sadness, and hope for the two souls in this novel.
Without giving too much away, you watch as Ashley Brannock’s life is turned upside down as she begins having dreams. With the dreams taking over her life, she seeks help from therapist and even a regression hypnotist. Throughout her journey to finding out what her dreams mean, you’re taken into a whole new world of possibilities on the meaning of true love.
I would recommend this novel to anyone that wants a refreshing take of true love. It’s a story that will have you wanting to know more, thus leaving you waiting for the second in the quartet, "A Memory of Love." Bravo Dante, for devising something new and wonderful! I greatly enjoyed this and can’t wait to read the next in the series.
