  • Stuck on Sep. 03, 2011
    star star star star star
    Stuck by Lisette Manning Stuck is a short story that caught my attention from the first sentence. It follows the main character Annie Page, who through a heartbreaking decision, she finds her life changed forever. You will find yourself in a post-apocalyptic world with enticing imagery to pull you into a shattered world. Annie, having to decide between taking care of her family or starvation, sets out into the ruin of the world and amidst unseen dangers, Annie finds herself in a state that has her losing her grip on the one thing that keeps her going, her family. I found this story riveting. The emotions played out through Annie’s thoughts give you a personal insight into her world and keep you along for a ride of dire consequences. You feel her fear, pain and heartbreak throughout the smooth flow of Lisette’s story telling. Excellent short story, I’m only disappointed that it ended too fast. Once you start, you have to see what happens! 5 stars
  • Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short Short Stories on Sep. 03, 2011
    star star star star star
    Flash Fiction Addiction 22 Short short stories by Garden Summerland has got to be one the most surprising finds I have read this year. It was filled with short, I mean 'short' stories, full of mystery/thriller/murder and a touch of paranormal flavors. I enjoyed reading the 22 she included in this collection. Garden Summerland does an excellent job pulling the reader in to become one with the characters and feel their emotions ranging from love, hate, lust, and regret. I found myself at the end faster than I would have liked and really ready for more. My only regret is that it was a really quick read. Definitely a heart pounding, gut wrenching, mind bending journey. Well worth the read!
  • Coexist: Keegan's Chronicles on Nov. 25, 2011
    star star star star
    Coexist by Julia Crane was a great, fast and light read. The story centers around a girl named Keegan, who is an elf. In a world where magical beings integrate well in human society, she has grown up a privileged and happy teenager. Her only care in the world is for shopping for parties and hanging with friends. Yet an imminent battle between light and dark elves has escalates, with Keegan’s family in the very center of it all. Most of the story is spent following Keegan around, having fun with her friends and her family in the day to day of her normal high school life. Keegan and her family have special powers (since they are all elves) and her brother Thaddeus is the ‘chosen one’ who is supposed to save their race and is a gifted warrior and seer. Keegan comes off as likeable but spoiled. Her family is rich and has everything so they are a bit hard to relate to. There are other supernatural beings blending in the city’s population, which somehow Keegan seems oblivious to. She seems to only be aware that she has a chosen one, a predestined love named Rourk, (who is my favorite) and that there are light and dark elves. The roles of the other beings are not fully explained in this book. The elves have been at war for so long, no one seems to know why they are fighting anymore. I enjoyed the storyline but the action did not seem to happen until the end. Conflicts between the two elves seemed to be solved way too easy and fast. I would have enjoyed a bit more depth in the backgrounds of the characters. Overall a steady paced read that kept my interest. I will be reading the next in the series to see what happens with these likable characters.
  • The Dark Gifts Birthright on May 29, 2012
    star star star star
    This book was an interesting take on vampires. It follows the lore well and creates a sense of structure of the vampire world. Liz is our main character and is a strong person in dealing with the changes in her life and her new role in the war of the Vampire groups. Her mate, Michael, is also an intriguing character, seems to remain pretty grounded throughout and very deadly. Overall I enjoyed the book. It did take me a long time to read this book, and I do read multiple books at once btw. I found the huge cast of characters a bit daunting at first, but they seemed to each have some sort or role, no matter how small. I think the length was a bit much for me; it was not a quick read. The book leads into some tangents that would confuse me at first but seemed to be resolved for the most part at the end. I really liked how well she mixed the different supernatural beings, such as witches and ghosts, together and blended them into a united front in some ways rather than pitch them against each other all the time. Overall, a more traditional take on vampires with some other magical creature factions tossed in.
  • Someone Else, Somewhere Else on June 17, 2012
    star star star star star
    A great short story! I enjoyed the easy writing and the memoir style flow of the events. The writer brings you into the lives of a pair of twin girls as they observe the lives of their friends and one unfortunate soul whose life they could have easily had. Loved it. I look forward to reading more from this author.
  • Oceans of Red Volume One on July 11, 2012
    star star star star star
    I enjoyed this short story a lot. I love stories with kick-butt heroines! Remy is our MC and she is a strong willed and sleek fighter against demons that have taken over the world, inhabiting humans and assimilating the remains of the population. Remy lives in a bunker, where some of the last military units try to figure out ways to bring the demons down. Remy, along with her sister and brother formulate a plan to infiltrate the enemy lines. But Remy may not be all she thinks she is. And the Druids that are allied with the demons may have their own agenda. Lots of action for sure. Definitely an interesting take on the apocalypse. I enjoyed the descriptions, witty language and fight scenes. I can’t wait to continue this short story series.
  • Compromise of the Soul on July 12, 2012
    star star star star
    This extremely short story involves a woman dreaming of her possible future. A vampire that takes her breath away, compelling her to succumb to his whims. But can she resist this nocturnal dream? I have to say, I wanted to see more. Lissette’s stories capture you quickly, but end far too fast. I enjoyed this morsel and hope to see her continue with the storyline soon. Good job sucking one in, but I want some more!
  • Closure on July 12, 2012
    star star star star star
    Heartfelt short story about Ben, who works in movies and spends lots of time abroad with his work. His wife Ellie is the love of his life. He thinks all is well, but one fateful day, the world crumbles his perfect vision of it. I enjoyed this story very much. Very descriptive and you get to feel Ben’s emotions and thoughts throughout. I felt so bad for him. To be in his own bubble in his mind to have it popped suddenly was shocking. I felt his pain alongside him and hoped for some sort of redemption. This short story ended right at the right place but I still was left curious to see what happens to Ben after the implosion of his life. Great Read!
  • Clone Three on Oct. 29, 2012
    star star star star star
    Review of Clone Three by Patti Larsen 4.5 stars What a knock your socks off adventure. It literally never stops in the action, suspense, twists and turns. This book follows Trio, a Clone who awakens in an unfamiliar world left in ruins after `The Sick' has left the land in shambles and all the adults dead in its wake. Only kids survive it. Some survive as gruesome mutations from The Sick. Trio finds she has memories of the world in its glory, not in disrepair as she finds it. She gets a brief holographic image of someone who looks like her mother, begging her to complete a mission she has no memory of. Knowing the world is depending on her, she journeys across a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, meeting other kids, some friendly like Beckett and Poppy, some not so friendly. Along with a nameless loyal canine, she fights her way across the city to discover where she needs to be. Betrayal, lies and pain surround her. Over and over she loses people she barely gets to know. Will she make it to the end of her journey intact? It was a wild ride. Trio is such a tough girl. She can beat Crawlers, Brights, Howlers (some of many mutations left by The Sick) and treacherous kids to a pulp! I like how good natured she is, it's ingrained in her to take care of others. Doing everything she can to keep those she loves alive, she discovers secrets about herself that others want desperately. I loved the action scenes, there are many. The post-apocalyptic world is painted out to the reader with painstaking detail. It is so real, and so incredibly sad. I am looking forward to reading the next two books in this series. My only qualm was that it was a bit repetitive and predictable, though I can see how necessary it was to pummel any groups of friendly kids Trio meets with the Crawlers and Trio's nemesis Cade always one tiny step behind her. A fabulous intro to what looks like a fast paced, intriguing series. I won this ebook in an online giveaway done by the author.
  • Betwixt on Nov. 12, 2012
    star star star star star
    4.5 stars Loved this book! And the cover is awesome! This story follows Nicole, the main character who is a stuck up, cold teen who parties all the time and thrives in the self-destruction that is her life. One day, after rejecting her boyfriend Trent when he wants to go too far, she finds herself stranded in the forest after dark when he leaves her there. Great boyfriend, right? Trying to make her way home, she gets hit by a drunk driver and left for dead. The next morning she finds herself in her bed, unscathed. Did she drink too much? After realizing that no one can see or hear her, she finds that the only person who can save her is Dale Finnigan- the one guy she humiliated and branded with the name `Scarface.' Will he even help her? She races against the clock to find her body as the person who hit her seeks to cover up the incident and finish her off. I really enjoyed this story, though it was pretty much the same storyline as the 2007 movie `The Invisible' with actors Justin Chatwin and Margarita Levieva. But, I really loved that movie too! There were definitely differences, of course. One being that the female/male roles are reversed in this particular take on spirits and near death experiences. But I admit, it is very, very much like déjà vu when reading this story, it makes me think of that movie over and over again. Still, the writing is engaging, witty and easy to follow, pulling you smoothly into Nicole's dismal life, regretful decisions and rebirth in a way. I loved Dale's character and found him enduring, strong and with a huge heart. I cheered for him the whole way through. If you want a great take on ghosts/spirits with some Christian themes included, this book is it! Great YA read!
  • Forever Fae on Dec. 26, 2012
    star star star star star
    I love stories on the Fae, so many directions you can go. I enjoyed this take on the Fae culture, the faery courts are all here, the story itself was well written and intriguing, it did not disappoint. This story follows Calista, the Summer Court’s princess when she is to get her guardian assigned− It’s a very special ceremony. Merrick, one of her friends, has been in love with her since he can remember and he is determined to win this honor and win her heart. But the Winter Court’s Prince Ryder has arrived for the ceremony, and sparks fly between him and Calista. Is he her chosen one? But these two aren’t the only ones interested in Calista. The dark sorcerer seeks her out for his own malicious purposes and will do anything to get to her. The twists and turns were amazing and kept me on my toes for the entire story. Calista is an awesome, tough, fierce and intelligent princess, not a weakling in any sense. I love how powerful she is and how she can one up the guys any day. I am not a fan of the damsel in distress that can’t fend for herself so this was definitely a big plus for me. The perils she goes through for love, for life and the safety of the land of the Fae are not easy for her. I enjoyed the details of the land of the Fae and the array of colorful characters that infuse this story with action, love, deceit, and some very hot moments. Not a YA read, it has some very racy and graphic scenes. Overall, I love it! A great take on the culture of Faeries, I can’t wait to read more from this author. I received this book free from the author for an honest review of the ebook.
  • Dreams and Echoes on Sep. 15, 2013
    star star star star star
    What a fun taste of what’s to come in the Hayle Coven series. I read this short novella that accompanies this series after I read book 1 Family Magic, which I highly suggest so it’s easier to understand more who the characters are and what their roles in this family of magic are. Syd is an endearing character, full of teenage angst and defiance often seen in her interactions with her mother, the coven leader. Always bumping heads with her, all she wants is to be normal. This chick literally attracts supernatural attention though. It’s fun to see how she handles things from trying to be normal by getting a job at a quirky salon with an equally eccentric owner who thinks she’s gifted. Not only does Syd seem to fail each time she resists using her magic, which makes her physically ill for some unknown reason, things seem to fall apart as she awakens something possibly sinister in her own house. Will this ‘echo’ be friendly or not? She’s definitely reluctant to fix the problems arising from the magic she leaks out all over the place. I love how Syd’s reactions to things sometimes are pretty normal, but sometimes not. She does the best she can dealing with crazy stuff happening around her, even though she doesn’t have full control of her magic. Her stubbornness makes her stick out in the coven like a thorn but that’s what makes her likeable and more real. Full of teenage angst, magic and funny surprises. I love this series so far and can’t wait for more!
