    What a great book, cant say i have read a better one as of late.I can not wait for the second book to go into my collection. The author has taken the worlds of vampires, werewolves, witches, shifters, fae and mixed them so tightly together. The book explodes with so many different things at the end you can not possibly wait to read the next in the series. Who will live who will die and what will happen to the forsaken lovers that have already faced so much that any more may actually take their very souls. Wow is about all i can say! great book great read. given to me on library thing for review!!
  • Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 on Aug. 04, 2013

    This review is from: Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 (Kindle Edition) I did not realize this was a series and now I want to read them all. The book never took on that series feel I never had to wonder where this came form or that was going. Even the ending was great no true moments of wonder I felt like this book took on a great challenge to get me to read a crime book but it was awesome. There is plenty of thriller and hold your breath moments and even made me daydream the scenes in my head as I read and that not an easy job. Truly loved this book would recommend to anyone over 12 only due to minor graphic scenes of violence which are less violent than most kids see on TV. given copy for honest review. Honestly I truly loved it.

    This was a good read but keeping it straight is not easily done. I could not sit down in one setting and read this book therefore i had to keep going back and forth to figure out where I was along with the characters in the book. If you have an open mind and great imaginiation this book will take you to a brand new place. It is very detailed and will keep you guessing.

    This is a short horror story. I love to fish but now I wonder about bringing in that big one. Good quick read. Enough to make you go hmmmm!

    in a different world where zombies and souls are the norm this story takes you on a journey you could not imagine. This is NOT a love story though it will catch your heart a few times. When her world is torn upside down by law and then takes a turn she never imagined! she gives it her all for her old and new family! this book has it all Zombies, Ghouls, ninjas, casters etc. the author mixed them all together and made it work. I could not put this book down. If your looking for a new read this is a great choice!!
  • Phantasy on Jan. 19, 2014

    This book was confusing from the get go. I never understood anything other than some kid ranting about how bad his life was. Whom ever proofread this book needs to be fired there are so many typos it was unreal and if they were not typos well you get the gist of it. I do not like giving bad reviews so I will say maybe somewhere I missed something!
  • Zombie Games (Origins) on Jan. 19, 2014

    I love zombie and post apapcolyptic tales. This was great story. The main character is a run of the mill girl with the usual problems at school. There are no magic powers or special effects here just plain old life or death and the determination to survive. Once you read this book I am sure you could look around your own tree of friends and family, naming who would play each character. This one was so good I read it all the way through only putting it down when I had too! cant wait to start reading this authors other books in this series!
  • Blood Bites: Three Vampire Tales on Jan. 19, 2014
    (no rating)
    I love stories I can read in a day! These three pretty short stories are of course about vampires and each one is seperate from the others. Each one is is different and unique in its own way. Each one was written by a different author and gives you plenty of information at the end of each story to look up the author when you are done!!

    I am an adult reader of YA and I truly loved this book, The main character is just a girl that is blacklisted as a freak of nature. What would you do if everything and everyone you knew either hated you, feared you, or wanted you for what you could do. The main character has never been loved or touched by others and is an outsider to say the least. When her temper flies it truly hits the fan. It makes a mess of her life and makes her decide between life as a freak or death! a must read for YA fans!!
  • Falken's Woods on March 23, 2014

    This YA book is a bit different in the fact that it allows you to follow a girl who thought of life as what was there and what was not. After a great loss in her life, she learns to move on with the help of total strangers she now knows as family and friends. Far away from the place she has called home in a country setting is a city girl who has to relearn how to live her life, what she plans on doing and how she is going to do it with eyes wide open in a brand new world! She must also decide what is real and what is not in the midst of the forrest she is becoming so familiar with.great read, great lessons to be learned here.
  • The Reset on March 23, 2014

    this is NOT a zombie read! This is a post apocolyptic tale of a world wide reset of the human kind. Where the more powerful humans decide the fates of millions! This is the story of a few of the survivors and how they handle actual survival! Its a tale that will thrill you,scare you and even worry you! Too many What If's these days and this is just one more way to get you to thinking what if! I would reccomend this book to ages 14 and up mostly because of the evil that is within the story and the fact that you must be willing to keep up to read it and get the most out of it!
  • Fast Wide Open on April 05, 2014

    This is not your usual picture book. This book has pictures taken of everyday things that get you to stop and think about them. Truly loved the pic of Smith Tower, it looks so foreign and yet it is right here in my back yard. I do not think I will ever look at normal things again the same way. there is a beauty in these pictures that only the authors mind can show us. Once again Justin Blaney takes the normal out of everyday life and gives it a meaning that was never there before. Way to go Justin, I never thought I could really like a picture book!!
  • The Island (The Island Series #1) on June 19, 2014

    it was a bit ahrd for me to get back into the book once the references to luke skywalker and his crew came up but this is another read of what could really happen. The end explains everything and makes it truly worth reading. Very suprised I like this book.
  • Vicarious Fate (Flash Fiction / Short Story) on June 19, 2014

    its a cross of frankenstein, zombies and weird creatures not quite human. This story is short enough you can get through it but I would have prefered to know more about the main character it only gives hints of who or what he is!
  • Deviations on June 19, 2014

    This story will pull at every emotion you have and then some. It takes a person who has been hurt and truly knows pain to understand this book. The ending is left a bit open but it truly is like no other. You will not read another book quite like this one and as many books as I have read that says a lot. Sometimes it takes not knowing and fear to make you do some of the things you would never be able to do without them. Sometimes love prevails even if it is not what you wanted or expected in the end but not all stories have a great ending even if the ending costs us more than we expected in the beginning
  • Azure on July 14, 2014

    Definitely a different type of read, If you like futuristic tales with a twist and newness you have yet to read. Grant Palmquist takes his books into a new realm of reading. All of his characters are well defined and so are his stories. This story takes you into a nation within the world held within its own walls. The people there are prisoners that are starving, dying or so miserable that they themselves have no hope to even fill their dreams. When something changes in one man’s life that gives him even the slightest of hope he finds a way to change it all but at what cost. Is life really that miserable living under tyranny or is it just how one perceives it all? In this story you will question yourself and those around you wondering what it would take and how far one would be willing to go.
  • Treasure (Seed Savers) on Sep. 02, 2014

    Well written with a story that could actually be true someday in this crazy crazy world. This story also has plenty of lessons to be learned while reading. The Seed Savers are a group of people that refuse to let farming go the way of the wind. They do not want over processed flavorless items that people now call food. It takes the courage of a girl and her little brother to take on the world of the seed savers and start showing some need for such things. Where will it take them and will they get caught? What about family and friends? This story is a bit on the religious side and does tell of many religions and there various natures, it does not take one stand and stick directly to it. It is a great read for any age!!!!
  • Lily (Seed Savers) on Sep. 02, 2014

    Book 2 the seed savers lily is all about the friend who got left behind by her best friend to find answers to an unknown story. Lily is part of a small group called seed savers trying to reseed the earth of all forms of plants and help to feed the world real food again. The practice of saving seeds, planting food or growing any kind of food is highly illegal and that entire lily wants to do along with her friends that have disappeared, but she has a secret one only her and her friends know about. An ally to their fight the one that helped them gets started and the one who will help her help her friends that ran away from the GRIM that will put them in jail for farming!

    Let to believe that her true love no longer cared for her she spent the next year just ignoring everyone and everything. Becoming strong enough mentally and physically to take on challenges she herself would not believe. Needing to get to her love and to safety from things she does not understand.

    not my normal read, this book took me on a brand new journey. What happens when those that are supposed to love you are determined to destroy you? what happens when everything that was supposed to be is anything but? Freya a very young woman put in a postition she would prefer not to be in but with little choice must take on a lot of responsibility for other and may cost her everything. This read is not your general love fight win book but will take you on a journey with a young couple that will only wish for the fairytale endings!
