Noree Cosper loves writing about magic in the modern world. While growing up in Texas she constantly searched for mystical elements in the mundane. She buried her nose in both fiction and books about Wicca, Religion, and Mythology. Everyday became an adventure as she joined a group of role-players, acting out her fantasies of vampires, demons, and monsters living in the world.
She embraced her nerdom wholeheartedly.
Noree grew, but never left her love for fantasy and horror. Her dreams pushed her and her hand itched to write the visions she saw. So, with her fingers on the keys, she did what her heart had been telling her to do since childhood. She wrote.

Out After Dark
on March 04, 2012
"A cat and mouse game played by those who stalk the night. Who is hunter and who is prey?"
I took this quote from the blurb because it best describes the premise of the book. We follow Eric as he has a night on the town, only to realize that he is being followed.
Premise: This really is a twist on the vampire/hunter thing. What I like is that I was guessing until the end on if Eric was the vampire of the hunter being stalked by a vampire. I'm not saying which.
Pacing: Really great pacing on this story. Kept me going to the very end.
Setting: I loved the dark and and gritty setting. The whole feeling was one of danger and tension. It reminds us why we don;t travel down dark alleys at night. Even now I get a few shivers up my spine.
It ended so soon. I wanted to read on. I hope Brandon does write a longer piece continuing the stories of these characters.

First of all I have to give this story its props for being original. I take place in the afterlife where a person can relive their memories. Other than What Dream May Come, I haven’t seen anything like this. Now, that being said, I also want to state that this book wasn't what I usually read. Yes, there was a large paranormal element and spirituality, but I prefer my books with more action.
However, I think many people would love this book. It is a heartwarming tale about reuniting with family and finding oneself. The story focuses on Eleanor and her need to wander, even in the afterlife. I love how even after death she is trying to find herself. All of the characters are well portrayed. Each has their own personal ghosts to deal with.
Overall, I would recommend this book for anyone who like literary with a touch of paranormal.
Journey To Light: Part I of the High Duties of Pacia
on Jan. 31, 2013
I would have to say that this book just wasn't for me. It has gotten some good reviews so this goes to show that everyone has different tastes. (If not this world would be a boring place.) There is a sensible start with the preface, solid description of a world and its peoples. The only detracting point to that is at the end of the preface where the author breaks with the entrance into the world by explaining to the reader that the story is full of disconnection in both location and character, but will all make sense in the end. It is not necessary to inform a reader that things will make sense in the end and sends the wrong message as to what to expect from the story.
The 4 main characters felt flat and 2 dimensional. The progression is jerky and without rhythm that would give the flowery descriptions a hand in fleshing out the world. I also felt the descriptions were over drawn for places that were mentioned in passing. This story is constantly shifting between character, locations and time periods to the point of almost utter confusion, with some level of connection to events most of the story gets left by the wayside. My personal opinion is to remove a lot of the superfluous material and stick with the story of the boy, as it has the most powerful plot
