    Ebook Review: Kings of the World

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: Kings of the World

    Kings of the World is Matt Pike’s first novel, though it’s the second book I have read of his (see my review of Apocalypse: Diary of a Sruvivor, where I decided I must read every book he ever writes). Kings of the World is about four teenage boys—Cooper, The Ginge, Knuckles, and Pete—who are chosen […]

Michaels deftly portrays a couple made for each other, though each has to endure hardships and heartbreak before they find each other.

    Ebook Review: Imago

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: Imago

    Imago is a gripping, complex thriller. Although I’m not particularly religious and tend not to gravitate towards fiction that revolves around religion, Imago was fast-paced, and had a great underlying message. The story involves two groups of people: the rationalists and the religionists. Both sides have extremists, and both sides also have moderates who have […]

    Apocalypse: Diary of a Survivor may be my new favorite book, which means I will now have to read everything author Matt Pike has written or will write. Set in the present day, starting in April 2014, the book follows the life of Australian teenager Jack, just before and after a giant dark comet unexpectedly hits […]

    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: Immortal’s Discord

    Ron Glick is an incredibly imaginative author, and I have had the pleasure and honor of reading and reviewing his other books, including Tarinel’s Song, The Wizard in Wonderland, Dorothy Through the Looking Glass, One, and Two. I know he has some amazing plans for the rest of the books in his three current series, and I’m […]

    Ebook Review: The Memory Box

    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: The Memory Box

    I could not put The Memory Box down. Though the first few pages sound like a typical story about a bored housewife who never wanted to end up in the suburbs, a big mystery is soon revealed that leaves the reader constantly questioning what happens next, all the way until the end of the book. […]

    Book Review: The Curse of the Thrax

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for Book Review: The Curse of the Thrax

    (This review contains some spoilers.) This book’s description does not do it justice. Mark Murphy’s The Curse of the Thrax is a well developed, often humorous, yet somewhat deep fantasy story about 14-year-old Jaykriss and his best friend and cousin, Marda. Jaykriss goes through many challenges as a young teenager. After the death of his […]

    Ebook Review: Seeing Colette

    Thumbnail image for Ebook Review: Seeing Colette

    As I was the ebook converter for this novel, I’m glad to review it. Seeing Colette is a beautifully written novella, with lyrical prose that provides vivid imagery. Every paragraph is pretty to read, such as this one from Part One of the book: As she spoke, he imagined a stone thrown into glistening water and could […]

    J E Henderson’s first book in The Credara Trilogy, Rise of the Kraylen, was a great start to the series. It’s billed as an epic tale of good versus evil and it really lives up to the hype. The battle is between God and his army of Sitcians, angel warriors, and Lucifer and his army […]

    Ebook Review: Dorothy Through the Looking Glass (Oz-Wonderland Series)

    I have been waiting to read Dorothy Through the Looking Glass ever since I finished the first book in Ron Glick’s Oz-Wonderland Series, The Wizard in Wonderland. And book two does not disappoint. There is just as much intrigue as in the first book, and the plot thickens, as more characters’ roles in the stories are introduced. I […]

    E-Book Review: A Dangerous Low

    by Sabrina Ricci Action-Adventure
    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: A Dangerous Low

    I liked A Dangerous Low, I really did. The prologue started out strong, with a tense, high-stakes action, life-or-death scene. And then I read on and found out that everything happens in seven days, which I knew meant the story would be exciting and impressive. The story is set in Atlanta, GA, and the protagonist […]

    E-Book Review: Two

    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: Two

    I loved Two. Having read all of Ron Glick’s fantasy novels in his multiple series, I can safely say that his writing and complex story telling abilities keep getting better and stronger. And they already started off strong. Two is (obviously) the second book in Glick’s The Godslayer Cycle series. While I did enjoy the first book, One, much of […]

    I met the author Justin Bruystens via Write or Read—he’s an alpha and beta tester who has provided invaluable feedback. When he told me the name of his e-book, I immediately purchased a copy. It sounded so cool—a bunch of apocalyptic short stories. I was not disappointed. Bruystens has a very eloquent style. His book is […]

    E-Book Review: The Prince and the Singularity

    by Sabrina Ricci Book Reviews
    Thumbnail image for E-Book Review: The Prince and the Singularity

    The title of The Prince and the Singularity: A Circular Tale is very apt. The story has many circles, which for the most part I found fascinating. It’s another great example of the experimenting you can do with self-publishing, and I really enjoyed how the author Pedro Barrento was upfront in the beginning of the […]

    John Harnish is known for his humor and his way of pushing the envelope, as seen with his self-published “The Immortalization of Fuck” in 1972. One of his more recent books, The Ugly American Quagmire, fits this style. The whole 160 pages is basically dialogue between Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Harnish, who is a […]
