Review for 'Reiyalindis' by Cory Poulson


Vaelon Sahani s destiny is about to confront him face to face and her name is Reiyalindis. To save their home from an unspeakable darkness, Reiyalindis, Vaelon, and their new allies form an unlikely band of adventurers who must put their prejudices aside to battle the evil confronting them. With shocking discoveries, bursts of humor, and danger around every corner, Reiyalindis is a thrilling fantasy, full of suspense, that will keep you guessing to the very last page.

Review: 4/5

 It is a cute story, very clean, and just one your children will love. One that does have potental to become a series. To start off with, the story begins with the meeting of Vaelon, and a High Elf, Reiyalindis. Reiyalindis is accompanied by another who she values as a friend. She tells Vaelon that she needs him. At first, he is a bit relucant to go. However, through pursuasion, he goes. While on this journey, they run into trouble, and there met a couple. The husband, Ciroy is human while his wife is a fox/human hybrid. They are a fantastic duo. I imagine the author, and his wife are too. More characters are discovered as the journey unfolds. Read, recommend, and enjoy this one! This is a winner!

Review for 'Seven Point Eight' by Marie Harbon


"Seven Point Eight: The most powerful number in the universe. The number that connects everything. A physicist begins a quest to measure the soul but soon finds himself drawn into the world of the enigmatic Max Richardson, where research is sold to the military at the highest bid. However, he soon discovers another purpose when an extremely talented young psychic enters his life. He devises a project and builds a team to stretch the frontiers of exploration, only to make a reality-shattering discovery… The First Chronicle is the beginning of a 5 part epic which follows the spiritual and emotional journey of five people; their quest to understand the universe and our place within it. Along the way, they address the fundamental questions we all seek answers to: why are we here? What is the purpose of the universe? Is there a God? Quantum physics meets spirituality in a tale which begins in the 1940s, unfolds during the 1960s; an era of social and spiritual transformation and reaches its conclusion in the modern age. It interweaves the human dramas of love, betrayal, bitterness and above all, courage in a world where everyone must face their own dark shadow. A clever and intriguing story with underpinning geeky science and spiritual theory intertwined, full of sub-plots and fantastical worlds."

Rating: 4/5 (Warning: Not intended for YA)

This was fasinating. Marie Harbon has done a remarkable job with this story. Set in a period where science is beginning to unfold, Seven Point Eight does test the well known question "does God exist?" It starts with a college professer teaching one of his lectures. When a young student possing information not everyone heard of comes in, he is taken by her. Then later, the main character undertakes an opportunity of his lifetime presented by another character named Max. Max sat in one of Paul's lectures with a question about the human soul. He is an interesting one with determination. All of the characters were well developed. If you're someone in the science field, you will love this. It not only travels through the years of science, but also the rest of the world's events. A blend of the two brings this among the others of its genre. The worlds are indeed ones full of life and imagination. Its rich ending will leave the reader in awe.

Review for 'Stolen" by Jodie B Cooper

Every vampire has a destined lifeMate, a mate who is a perfect match. What happens if that perfect mate is stolen?

Katrina knows Eric is her destined mate, but her high school rival has other plans for Eric.

Twisting the most ancient of Sídhí laws, Clarisse steals Eric from Katrina with binding words, knowing Katrina can't fight back. Or can she?

Dreams of death dance in Katrina's head, because no one gets between a vampire and her true mate.

Stolen: Song of the Sídhí #3

22,000 word novella

Contains minor sexual content & language

Rating: 3/5

   The story itself was pretty good despite the other stuff. The writing is good, but I wanted to know more. A lot of my questions weren't answered. Other than that, the tension between Katrina and her rival is drawn out well. Eric finally gets the picture that his best friend loves him. Still wish the author would draw the storyline out a bit more. It seems the rival would be coming after for revenge or do something.
