Review of Remembered by E.D. Brady (The Vistira Trilogy: Book 1)

Standard

Who doesn’t love a good romance?

When I started reading Remembered, I had no idea what it was about, but I was hooked instantly.  The love between Annie and Kellus was beautiful.  They were destined to be but when supernatural events ripped Annie from Kellus’ life, he was devastated.

Catapulted to another time, place, and age, Annie had no memory of the life she once led.  Her age having been reversed to six, she turned up alone on the doorstep of a New York police station.  With no identity or family, Annie lived her life as Emily until recurring dreams of a handsome man forced her to seek counseling.

Kellus’ desperate love for Annie reached through time, space, and worlds, to finally bring her back to him, only to have her face once again, the threat that ripped them apart.

Unfortunately, the mixture of future and past items within the same world, such as the use of carriages alongside modern day medicine was troubling.  I also wanted to know more about how her friend in New York dealt with her disappearance.  Since this is a trilogy, I hope her other life is revisited.

None of the negative points of this book detracted from that fact that it kept me up reading way past my bedtime for more than one night.  After all, this is a work of fiction and I keep my mind open–anything can happen.  The love story was wonderful and I really enjoyed the action at the end.  It was a real page turner and I honestly couldn’t put it away.

I can’t wait to read the next books  in the series.

Loved it!

I give this one four stars.

Review of Paulie by M.A. Myers

Standard

The cover of this book has been creeping me out for quite some time and I have really wanted to read it.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a short story and I was able to read it in one evening.  I almost stopped reading in the middle because I was getting a little freaked out and afraid I wouldn’t be able to sleep, but that is exactly what this book is supposed to do.

It totally delivered.  I kept reading.

A woman alone with her children in a big house, a husband late from work—these things alone are enough play on the fears of every mother, but then the situation turned from simple unease to horrific.   Without giving anything away, I can say that the ceiling crawling scene was frightening and very nicely done!

There were a few grammatical errors but it did not take away from enjoyment of this book.

The teaser chapter at the end for Paulie 2 left me anxiously waiting for the next installment.

Well done M.A. Myers.  Now hurry with book #2!

I give this one 5 stars.

Review of Suki by C.F. Winn

Standard

Suki is a beautifully written love story and quite different than any other that I’ve read.  An unlikely and surprising narrator takes the reader through an array of emotions; hope, happiness, excitement, uncertainty, love, laughter, grief, and devastating loss.  It takes a brilliant author to write a story that will actually make me cry, and I have to admit, this one did.  What does love really look like?  We think we might know, but C.F. Winn shows us that it isn’t always what we expect.  The point of view choice in this book is quite original and refreshing.  Suki really touched my heart, and will be with me for a very long time.  Thank you, C.F. Winn, for writing such an amazing story.

I give this one a 5 star!

Review of Madeline by Craig McGray

Standard

This is a great short horror story. McGray does an excellent job at capturing the fear of a father who is desperate to protect his child from evil. This story is fast paced from beginning to end. It sets a frightening scene that drags the main character from a hard day of work, and into a terrifying, shadow filled forest. This story is very well written, intense, and leaves me wanting to read more of McGray’s work. It was a very short read and if you find that you have a few minutes to spare, I certainly recommend it.
