Monsters in The Cundy by R H Dixon @RachaelHD

.

Because of the injury to my arm, I have tried to back off taking in new review books, but some I cannot resist…like The Cundy by R H Dixon. I do love a spooky story and the cover made me wonder what is hiding in The Cundy.

The Cundy

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

Memories of playing under the culvert come to mind as I read The Cundy. To me, that is always a sign of good things to come.

A mining village in England, Norse mythology, the occult, bullying…A monster in the dark. Sounds like a chilling read to me. I can see the creepiness. How about you?

A coming of age story, with subtle danger and eerie happenings.

I love how the family works through a horrible time and the loss of a mom and wife, trying to figure out how to go on.

THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE DARK…

For fans of Stand By Me and IT, this standalone coming of age tale, set in an ex-mining village in the northeast of England in the mid-90s, blends Norse mythology and the occult.

‘When 13-year-old Sullivan Carter and his younger brother, Colton, are forced to hide from school bullies in the cundy (a water conduit in Castle Eden Dene), they are attacked by a terrifying creature which goes on to haunt their dreams.

Rumour has it that some older teens have been performing strange rituals at the cundy. As such, Sullivan is convinced that he and Colton are now being hunted by an ancient creature that’s been unleashed from its dark lair. A creature that’s been lurking since the time Scula the Danish Viking warlord ruled the area in the 900s.

When Colton begins to hear voices which draw him back to the cundy, he tells Sullivan he believes one of them belongs to their dead mother.

Sullivan must reach beyond his own profound grief in order to defend Colton and himself against the wily creature.

Does he have what it takes to defeat it? Or will he need to sacrifice himself in order to save his little brother?’

Hiding in Sunshine by John & Caitlin Start is a great title and I do love the simple cover. I would like to thank NetGalley and Authorhouse for the opportunity to read and review Hiding in Sunshine. I downloaded this way back on 1.16.13.

Hiding in Sunshine

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

Gavin had become wealthy from his inventions, so the kid was given only the best. He will need that wealth, because his family is in danger, targeted by the Enterprise, a Serbian criminal outfit. Why? Who will protect them?

I can only try to imagine the fear of being hunted, on your own. But, he and his friends are tech savvy, so I think the Serbs may regret messing with the wrong people. Bruce is a very interesting characters.

“The boundary between reality and nightmare had evaporated.”

I think I know what’s coming and I can hardly wait to find out. A terrifying look into a world in crises. Could this happen today? I love when a book gets my mind rolling, filled with what ifs…

So Sweet – Dragon’s First Valentine by Emily Martha Sorensen @CleanYAFantasy

.

Emily Martha Sorensen writes some fabulous clean fantasy and I have been loving every minute of my time with her. One of my favorites is the baby dragon, Virgil, in the Dragon’s Egg series.

Dragon's First Valentine (Dragon Eggs, #6)

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

I love this sweet cover and the ‘human’ romance is just as sweet.

With each novella in the Dragon’s Egg series, we learn more about the pitfalls and perils, along with the job, of raising a baby dragon.

Rose reminds me of Temperance Brennan in Bones and I feel bad for Henry at times. He has such a soft soul and is easily hurt, innocent and naive about many things.

Try to imagine potty training a dragon, especially when it doesn’t want to be trained. LOL

There’s a new dragon visiting from Chicago, and she’s green, like Virgil! Unfortunately, this might cause a few small problems nobody anticipated.

As well as a few revelations and surprises.

And all while Rose is trying to figure out what to give her husband for Valentine’s Day.

Woo Hoo. A big shout out and thank you to NetGalley and Mulholland Books for the chance to read A Map of the Dark by Karen Ellis/Katia Lief.

A Map of the Dark (The Searchers #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

Loved it!

Flawed characters, teenagers, kidnapping, murder, serial killer, life and death, cancer.

I loved the characters, searching for answers, struggling with life.

Glad Dark is in the title, because it’s not only the villain that hides in the dark.

I am so happy this is a series because I want a whole lot more of it.

Elsa, her new partner and friend, Lex…and his brother, David. she doesn’t have much of a personal life, doesn’t strive to have one, discourages those who try to get close, until Lex who manages to earn her trust.

Deep, dark secrets.

So glad I have the next story ready and waiting…and I will begin NOW.

A girl, missing
A woman, searching
A killer, planning…

FBI Agent Elsa Myers finds missing people.
She knows how it feels to be lost…

Though her father lies dying in a hospital north of New York City, Elsa cannot refuse a call for help. A teenage girl has gone missing from Forest Hills, Queens, and during the critical first hours of the case, a series of false leads hides the fact that she did not go willingly.

With each passing hour, as the hunt for Ruby deepens into a search for a man who may have been killing for years, the case starts to get underneath Elsa’s skin. Everything she has buried – her fraught relationship with her sister and niece, her self-destructive past, her mother’s death – threatens to resurface, with devastating consequences.

In order to save the missing girl, she may have to lose herself…and return to the darkness she’s been hiding from for years.

Monday Mini – Sketcher in the Rye by Sharon Pape @sbpape

Catchy title for Sketcher in the Rye by Sharon Pape and I do love the cover. I would like to thank NetGalley and Penguin for the opportunity to read and review Sketcher in the Rye by Sharon Pape. I downloaded this back on 11.7.13

MY REVIEW

Sketcher in the Rye and Sharon Pape had me cracking up from the getgo. I don’t know what I expected, but it’s delivering so much more.

Rory is quite the character, but Zeke steals the show. They do make quite the investigating team.

We switch back and forth from the present to the past as we examine Zeke’s life. A heartbroken hobo has a large personality and is good for lots of laughs.

Fun story, humorously written, with fabulous quirky characters to love.

In her new job as a private eye, former police sketch artist Rory McCain has a spirited partner: Old West marshal Zeke Drummond. He may be a ghost, but when these two combine their skills, they reap justice…

Trouble has sprouted at Harper Farms. Top secret info has been leaked to the competition, and now there’s serious sabotage cropping up. So the farm’s beleaguered owner, Gil Harper, has called on Rory to dig up some dirt. But what Rory discovers raises a new field of questions…

Someone shucked Harper’s accountant and left his body in the farm’s corn maze. While Gil is quick to hire Rory to solve now not one but two crimes, the sketching sleuth isn’t so sure why the farmer wants her to focus her attention on his own family.

Regardless, Rory and Zeke will need to put their hands to the plow and solve this case before someone else is planted six feet under…

Poseiden’s Warriors and Vampires – Atlantis Awakening by Alyssa Day @Alyssa_Day

.

Alyssa Day writes some fantastic stories. After reading the first book in the series (see my review link below), Atlantis Rising, I had to have more…so here’s Atlantis Awakening.

Atlantis Awakening (Warriors of Poseidon, #2)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

Poseiden’s finest against vampires…I’d like to see that, but I’ll settle for reading about it.

Ven is second in line to the throne, but he doesn’t want it. He is happy being head of the Warrior Academy.

Erin Connor is a witch and knew she was in trouble when she came face to face with Ven. I think we all know where this is going, but I am looking forward to a slip sliding ride to Atlantis.

Ven quickly knew he would stop at nothing to protect her from those who pursue her.

The romance is otherwordly instalove, easy for me to accept in a novel where it is to be expected…which I will leave to you to find out why.

Atlantean, Elven, Vampires, Shapshifters, Witches…you never know who your friends are.

The world and characters are familiar, at least some of them, and I love learning more about them. Danger is always near and that creates suspense and curiosity for me.

Though the storyline is familiar and easy to figure out, I do like surprised lovers, magical love and battles between good and evil.

The romance is steamy and for adults only.

Even though Atlantis Awakening tells Ven and Erin’s story, it leaves us in a pickle with the overall storyline. I recommend reading in order to get the full impact.

GOODREADS BLURB

To rescue the world from an overwhelming evil, Poseidon’s warriors have risen from Atlantis. Chief among them is Ven, serving as the King’s Vengeance by birthright and by battle challenge. None can conquer him – except perhaps for one human female….

The Warrior…
Ven’s mind is filled with duty. He must serve as Atlantean liaison to the humans in a war waged against the vampires. A sword is his weapon – not diplomacy. But on a mission to recover the Nereid’s heart – a ruby of immense power – it will take every ounce of strength he possesses to resist the sexual allure of the beautiful witch chosen to work with him.

And the Witch…
Erin’s heart is filled with vengeance. She lives only for the chance at revenge against those who murdered her family. Now she must partner with a legendary Atlantean warrior whose dark desire threatens to crash through the barriers built around her emotions – and her heart. Caught in the trap of shifting alliances, how long can Ven and Erin resist their awakening passion?

Dark forces beware: Atlantis is awakening.

WWIII & Vigilantes – Crowns & Cabals by Dina Rae @HalooftheDamned

.

It’s always a pleasure to be given an opportunity to read a novel by Dina Rae, and this is the latest one, Crowns and Cabals. Look at the intriguing cover. Are you curiious? Does it make you want to pick it up and read it?

Crowns and Cabals: An Apocalyptic Tale of New World Order

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

After the nuclear holocaust of WWIII, one third of the world is destroyed.

I love stories that have vigilantes…or could they be rebels, guerillas…those looking to survive in the face of desolation and destruction. Depends on which side of the story you are on.

Fear + lack of authority + chaos

Rule by fear…and a conspiracy is born. New World Order spells O.W.N. backwards.

I was quickly involved and lovin’ it.

TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More

If you are left, all you know gone, do you blow your brains out? Become a guerilla fighter? Take it and become one of the herd? I love watching the characters step up and reach their full potential.

I love the route Dina Rae took with the conspiracy. I am a bit of a buff myself, and have some similar thoughts about some current events, or a possible future, without the supernatural angle, which I totally love.

Dina Rae could end it here and let us decide the future…or she can take it to the next level. What do you say Dina?

Vigilantes stumble upon a cabal of world power.

Journalist Raphael King knows three things about New World Order. First, control the media. Check. Second, erase the world’s borders. Check. Third, provoke a nuclear war. Check. Is it checkmate for the ultimate inner circle?

In 2043 Raphael loses it all. He and sister-in-law Jaxie Nottingham refuse to sit back and watch the new world government unfold. They set up vigilante cells with the goal of disrupting anyone who benefits after the war. One of their targets leads them to a secret society created since the dawn of civilization.

Past Nightmares – Whispers In The Dark by Laurel Hightower #LaurelHightower

.

I was approached by Laurel Hightower and given an opportunity to read and review Whispers in the Dark. Looking at the red cover with the girl in flames talked to me and after reading the blurb I couldn’t resist.

Cover Art and Design: Mikio Murakami

Whispers in the Dark

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

I am blown away by Laurel Hightower’s first novel, Whispers in the Dark. Very impressive.

The fabulous cover fits the dark story on the pages inside…the doors of hell opening up to her, calling her, the dead demanding her attention. Some warn her, others want…something from her.

Is her son in danger? Her daughter? Her friends and coworkers? All the characters have their part to play and I must say, I wouldn’t mind killing a couple of them myself, in the book of course. lol

Her son, Tommy, is the sweetest, bravest four year old I have come across.

I love Laurel’s description of grandparents…if the children are bad, they had to sit on the couch, watch cartoons and eat chocolate while they thought about what they’d done. LOL

I love stories like Whispers in the Dark, insidious evil lurking…

Her past was filled with terror and torture…visions, ghosts and the whispers, and now I know why. Her job with SWAT had put them to bed, until…Charlie Akers.

Is that a whisper I hear? Is that a shadow in the corner? Are those footsteps climbing the cellar stairs? You know there has to be at least one cellar!

The rich detail of the writing made me almost feel them reaching out for me, seeing their eyes peering at me out of the dark corners.

To get the full effect, I recommend reading the story at night, when you are alone, turning off all the lights and letting your imagination run wild. HA HA HA

I couldn’t put down Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower and it freaked me out. I love sneaky evil oozing its way off the pages, into my mind.

I was very happy with the ending, and I didn’t know what it would be. Laurel Hightower did a fabulous job with her first attempt at writing a novel and I can hardly wait to see where she goes from here. I am very impressed, can find no fault, and give it a giant stamp of approval…and, Laurel, I will be stalking you.

Rose McFarland is a trained killer–a Memphis S.W.A.T. sniper with a secret. Her team knows about the burn scars that lurk under her clothes, a legacy of the house fire that killed her father and brother sixteen years before. Her supervisors know that she spent two years in a rehabilitative facility, healing and learning to cope with the emotional trauma of the fire. But no one knows about the visions that drove her there, angry spirits that consumed her childhood, alienated her from her family and made her doubt her own sanity–the Whispers.

When Charlie Akers, a half-brother she never knew, ends up on the wrong side of Rose’s rifle, she unwittingly sets off a chain of events that puts her family in the middle of increasingly dangerous paranormal visitations. Charlie won’t stay dead, and soon ghosts from Rose’s past are creeping back into her life. People she’s killed in the line of duty, family she thought long buried, every one of them under the influence of Rose’s greatest fear, the Whispers themselves.

As the walls between our world and the world of the dead grow thin, Rose will have to face her old nightmares to stop the Whispers from breaking free. If she can’t, it won’t just be Memphis that falls to the dead–there will be no safe place left on earth for the living.

Alone and Targeted – Absolution by D V Berkom @dvberkom

D V Berkom writes of strong female characters, so when Absolution came in the mail, I was very excited to begin reading. Whether she expects a review or not, doesn’t matter. I want to share one of my favorite authors with you, so a review is always forthcoming.

Absolution

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

I got lost in the writing as I am drawn in deeper…and I am not surprised with D V Berkom.

This badass character faces danger in every story and this antagonistic villain has a personal agenda that places Leine Basso in her sights.

Leine Basso will stop at nothing to protect those she loves, so she isolates herself as she hunts Salome, the one that got away in Dark Return.

Danger…intrigue…

Never a dull moment.

Who’s the mole? I figured wrong and D V Berkom is great at surprising me that way. The betrayal is well hidden and the red herrings kept me guessing.

And Jinn. I would love to read more about Jinn, a very special young girl.

ABOUT DV BERKOM

DV Berkom is a slave to the voices in her head. As the author of two popular thriller series (Leine Basso and Kate Jones), her love of creating resilient, kick-*ss female characters stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those pages.

Raised in the Midwest, she received her BA in political science from the University of Minnesota and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Many, many cross-country moves (and several years) later, she now lives just outside of Seattle, Washington with the love of her life, Mark, an ex-chef-turned contractor, and writes every chance she gets.

Hard Choices To Make in Dark Consequences by Amanda Siegrist @amanda_siegrist

.

I have been reading Amanda Siegrist’s work for some time now, so to get a copy of Dark Consequences, which was published in March was wonderful. And we do have some hard choices that will need to made in this love story with a twist.

Dark Consequences

Amazon / Goodreads

MY REVIEW

I love a story that grips me early and Dark Consequences by Amanda Siegrist does just that.

Abby was a secretary for a criminal defense attorney in Minnesota, but she knew how to take care of herself. She had moved there with her best friend, Brandon. She was happy with her life, but there was one thing missing, her brother, Cooper. He was a psychopath who murdered people without compunction.

A cop in love with a woman who’s brother killed his sister. NOW…he was going to hunt him down and exact his own revenge.

It had been love at first sight for him and Abby. How could they have a future? Abby was afraid that Tate was going to kill her brother, because he had killed his sister and her goal was to stop him. Who would find Cooper first?

WOW. The twists and turns in the many layered chilling mystery kept me ‘flipping pages’ to the very end. The characters are not all good or all bad, complex yet loyal to the end, willing to sacrifice whatever necessary to get the job done.

The romance was hot and heavy between Abby and Tate and I love the addition of Stromberg…the three Musketeers.

I love a story that keeps on giving and I see more of Consequences to be dealt with in my future.

GOODREADS BLURB

Every choice has a consequence…

Detective Tate Powell is consumed by two things—the woman who managed to capture his heart with a single look and to catch the man that killed his sister. When he finds out the man he’s been seeking, the man he will kill with his bare hands, is none other than his girlfriend’s brother, he knows his entire life is over. Because nothing will stop him from seeking revenge, even if it means losing her.

Abby Forrester never knew she could fall in love so easily, but Tate slipped under her defenses without even blinking. She should’ve never confessed her brother is the man that killed his sister. But now that she has, she’ll do everything in her power to protect him from ruining his life—and from killing her brother. Even if she has to do the unthinkable. Turn against him.

ABOUT AMANDA SIEGRIST

Amanda Siegrist

Love! Gimme some love and heaps of romance. I have a sappy heart that just loves two people meeting, going through the cycles of a relationship, and ultimately, falling in love. Give me a good book like that and I’m a happy camper:)

I write contemporary and romantic suspense, but I am partial to suspense. I just love a good mystery.

Besides writing, I love baking, crafts, and baseball…oh, and meeting new people. *smiles*
