 Sue's Book Review -
This is my first exposure to the Enigma Series book. I love the authors and I loved the story. I was a little confused at first, but within the first couple of chapters I was able to figure out what was happening. I really think that this book would have made for sense if I had read the whole series before starting this book – BUT, it still makes sense without doing that.

There are cyber bad guys who try to win a game using manipulation, stealth, and bullying. Then you have Juan and Julie’s cyber assassin technology services team who are trying to figure out who is causing the worldwide havoc. I don’t write spoilers – so, all I can say is you really need to read the book and discover what is happening and the consequences for yourself.

Once you start reading this, you will find it hard to stop until you reach the end. An amazing story!!! I was asked to read and give this book an honest review - and so glad that I did get to read it!!!
Award-winning authors, Breakfield and Burkey, take their fans into this grittier story of The Enigma series to explore virtual hacking within our technology dependent world. In book 7 of the series, *The Enigma Gamers*,

Book Review by Sue -

This is the first book that I have read by Abdur R Mohammed. I'm impressed with the way that he is able to blend ancient myth, religious belief systems and a lot of imagination to create a fantastic new world.
When the Age of Virgo ends, then an ancient prophecy is looming over the world. The prophecy advises that peace ushers in prosperity and war brings annihilation. Such is the promise of the Anuk who came from the stars -- but the question is which will it be? Prince Timon of Atlantis seeks the power of the Anuk to conquer the world, but he is being challenged by the mysterious Liviana, who attempts to prevent the prophecy from unfolding. 

I don't write spoilers - so I will start by saying that you have to read the book to find out what happens. I found that once I starting reading that I got so engrossed that it was hard to stop reading until I finished the book!!!
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series!!!


About the Author Abdur R Mohammed is from New York City and currently lives in Virginia Beach, VA. He spent 13 years with the U.S. Navy, serving in F/A-18 fighter squadrons, and travelling the globe where his deep-seated curiosity about mythology and philosophy was further stimulated.

New Release - Wicked Origins by Paula Black


I have no idea what’s happening to me.
When a tornado dropped my car in a land of short, wild people, I was shocked. With no way to get home, no idea where I was and no clue how to communicate with the muchkins, I was completely out of luck. Then I found out that my car had landed on someone and killed them. Supposedly she was the Wicked Witch of the East.
If that wasn’t bad enough, now her ruby slippers magically appear on my feet, and slowly, I’m becoming her.
Now I need to get to Emerald City and see the Wizard if I want to stop the transformation and return home. But the yellow brick road is no cake-walk, and I don’t know what I’ll find at the end of this journey. Luckily, I have three brothers I meet along the way to help me on my journey. Each of them is vying for my affection, as if it doesn’t matter that my skin is turning green.
Wicked Origins is a modern YA Reverse-Harem Fantasy Retelling of L. Frank Baum’s original Oz tales.

Reincarnation - It’s A Curse to Remember – Storm

The first in a series, Storm is a twists-and-turns thriller driven by compelling characters challenged by dangerous forces, both external, internal, and eternal.
Evan Storm had been confronted by his past (an unpleasant one at that) in his dreams, and now in his waking life. He is struggling to reconcile the evil that lurks in his soul. Shadow Hex is his new neighbor, who also fears a dangerous past – her former fiancĂ© who works for the Secret Eye Agency (which is as shadowy and sinister as it sounds). Does Shadow hold the key to Evan’s redemption? Is redemption even possible?

Amazon

 Guest Post - 
Reincarnation means that you have been and will be brought into different lives as a human or animal. As a Sikh, I strongly believe in reincarnation. The highest form of reincarnation is the human race. But our goal in life is to break free of this cycle and become one with God. In order to do that, you have three duties you must do in your life in order to become one with God. This first is Nam Japna, keeping God in mind at all times. The second is Kirat Karna, earning an honest living. Since God is truth, a Sikh should live honestly. This doesn’t just mean avoiding crime. This includes avoiding gambling, begging, or working in the alcohol or tobacco industries. The third is Vand Chhakna (literally sharing ones’ earrings with others) which would translate to giving charity and caring for others.
I personally believe that the life we live today is given to us based on our actions which created good and bad karma in our previous life. Sometimes we go through something painful and we don’t understand why it’s happening to us. When you can’t understand why bad things are happening to you, it’s most likely because you did something in your previous life and now you’re paying for it in this life.
I look at my life and there have been a lot of things that happened to me, which I don’t understand because I’ve been a good person and have never intentionally hurt people. The way I make sense of it is that I must have hurt someone just as bad in my previous life and I’m paying for that mistake now. Sometimes karma will get you the moment after you do something bad. Other times, it takes a while for it to pay you a visit.
The idea of introducing karma and reincarnation came to me because it’s something that not a lot of people really talk about. Storm explores the past life of the character, Evan Storm, and the storyline follows Evan in his current life. His life has been pretty decent up until Shadow Hex enters. That’s when his karma pays him a visit and he tries his best to deal with the cards he’s been dealt.

Book Review and Contest The Heartbreak Cowboy by Mina Beckett Book Tour

*Old flames burn hotter the second time around…*
It’s been four long years since McCrea Coldiron watched Eleanor Mackenna
walk out of his life. He wasn’t ready for the marriage noose then and never
thought he would be. Single, free to do as he pleases, and running the
Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch are the things that make him sure he was
right to let Eleanor go… This is until she comes back to town with a
daughter he never knew about in tow.
Eleanor knows just how badly McCrea can burn a woman and how persuasive
he can be when he wants something, so she’s more than cautious about
his charming words and cocky grin when she comes home to arrange the
sale of her grandparents’ ranch. But when a flat tire in a thunderstorm
introduces four-year-old Sophie to her daddy, Eleanor knows McCrea’s love
for his daughter is genuine. Can she trust it will be the same for her? As
the icy walls around her heart begin to melt, Eleanor must find the courage
to trust her heart or run away from the man who has always owned it.
Being shown what he lost is a wake-up call for McCrea and he isn’t about to
let Eleanor or Sophie walk away. It’s time to prove he’s a man who believes
in love and happy-ever-after.
 Sue's Review - 
I love these books by Mina Beckett!!! They are such enjoyable reads!!!

The main character – Eleanor Mackenna – walked out of McCrea Coldiron’s life four years ago. Not knowing why she left, but knowing that he was not ready to get married at the time. McCrea enjoys being single and running the Promise Point Horse Rescue Ranch. Then Eleanor comes home to arrange the sale of her grandparents’ ranch – and OMG, the story just keeps getting better and better. I don’t write spoilers – so you are just going to have to read this for yourself to find out exactly what happens with her return.

I totally recommend this book. It is an easy read and is fun to see exactly what happens.

At the same time, Colton has developed a crush on American foreign exchange student, Dylan, who is visiting his aunt.

Buy on Amazon

Sue's Review -

Bryce Bentley-Tales is a new author for me – and OMG, this story was wonderful!!!

13-year-old Colton and his best friend Jade are looking for twins who had recently disappeared. They are searching for them in an old abandoned house in their hometown in Ireland. This run-down building is said to be haunted – with its wolf statues outside – and then Colton believes that he saw a werewolf. I don’t write spoilers, so I will stop here and say “You really need to read this book!!”

This is an awesome story and a fairly fast read. It’s one that is truly enjoyable.



“I have loved haunted houses for as long as I can remember,” recounts Bentley-Tales. “When I was kid I was hooked on the Scooby crew who were always going into haunted castles, houses, amusement parks, museums. Heck, you name it, it was haunted!” These sweet-scary childhood memories fueled Bentley-Tales’ storytelling in this book, his first YA horror story. And certainly, developing the story through the eyes of a young gay boy allowed the author to offer a special, inclusive point of view. And while masterfully creating tension and fear through the dark fantasy conflict, the navigation of young love is another great strength Bentley-Tales displays. “There’s a part in the story where Erin wants to make Colton jealous by telling him how much attention Dylan is giving her. I get a good chuckle when I re-read it, as it’s such a typical young love triangle!”
