Z is for Zombies v Ninjas: Origin by R A Barnes @MarbleCityPub

Zombies v Ninjas: Origin - R.A. Barnes

I have been remiss in keeping up with my challenges and am now crossing off the Z for my Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge, Zombies v Ninjas by R A Barnes. I have K, Keeper of the Peace by Jennifer Malone Wright, X, EXtinct by Ike Hamill (which I am currently reading), and You Can Run by Willow Rose to finish it off. I pulled them from my Amazon free downloads. I will be squeezing the reviews in before the end of the year, because I like all my challenge books to be reviewed.

 

I picked this up on 9.10.15 for free and it was still FREE when I created this post.

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The tile for Zombies v Ninjas made me have to pick this up. I was curious how they would come together and it happens quickly.

 

An island, the Undead, an evil mastermind…and ninjas, there has to be a lot of slash ’em up, rock ’em sock ’em action…and there is. Have I died and gone to…HELL?

 

This is a different slant on zombies and how they came to be and the ninjas are recruited to save humanity from the apocalypse.

 

I felt like that’s cool, oh yeah, i like that, all right, way to go, but I never felt like OH NO! OMG! Run for your lives. Watch Out.

 

All in all a fun read and I would continue with the series.

4 Dark Tales in Highway 7 by Perry Prete @PerryPreteBooks

Highway 7: 4 Dark Tales - Perry Prete

I loved Perry Prete’s Ethan Tennant series, so I was curious how he would handle these four dark tales of horror…and I think they are a complete success. Well done Perry.

 

Highway 7: 4 Dark Tales

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The stories are short, so I didn’t have time to get lost in them, abut I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be Social Studies.

 

THE ELEVATOR: This was one creepy story and it had my mind wondering what was real and what was I imagining as I got lost in the dark…trapped in the elevator and in my own mind. Well done. 4 Stars

 

REUNION: It had been five years since his girlfriend went missing when the creature attacked and he had been back for a family reunion. Sad, frightening, but ya gotta hang in til the end because ya just never know. 4 Stars

 

SOCIAL STUDIES: One assignment = one grade and it took over he life. I didn’t see where this going and, wow, it was all over the place and I loved it. 4 Stars

 

HIGHWAY 7: Predictable, now you see it, now you don’t, but with a twist and I loved it.

Jaw Dropping Debut – The Vanishing Season by Joanna Schaffhausen @slipperywhisper

The Vanishing Season: A Mystery - Joanna Schaffhausen

Every so often I will follow an email link from NetGalley and check out what’s happening. I try to limit how many books I grab at one time…you know how that is. I found some books by Joanna Schaffhousen and grabbed a couple. I would like to thank NetGalley, Minotaur Books and Joanna Schaffhausen for the opportunity to read and share them.

The cover definitely fits the story.

 

The Vanishing Season (Ellery Hathaway, #1)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The Vanishing Season is Joanna Schaffhausen’s debut novel, released in 2017…and, boy oh boy, is it a good one. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it gave me so much more.

 

Three people have gone missing and Ellery Hathaway knows they are dead and another will be taken very soon. Sam dismisses her warnings, but she won’t stop there. Sam is not only her boss, the chief of police, but also her lover, her married lover. I sure don’t approve of that, but as I read on, I could see how it happened. She uses sex as a weapon. That will have it’s own repercussions.

 

Woodbury, Massachusetts is a small town, a blink and you will miss it, with only eight police officers. I love to read of small towns, the gossip mill, and secrets that won’t stay secret. Ellery has a big one, but…

 

Ellery calls in the big guns, Reed Markham, an FBI profiler that had saved her from the serial killer that had taken her fourteen years ago, leaving her scarred and broken. He too has his own story. His marriage is on the rocks, but he had made a promise to her, so when she called, he came.

 

I love her basset hound, Speed Bump. LOL Critters always add some grins for me, and with a subject like serial killers, I need some chuckles.

 

The dog leapt from the vehicle with all the grace of a hippo performing a belly flop.

I have plenty of suspects, but two in particular have my attention. Even if I’m wrong, I don’t like them. LOL I do like to try and figure it out for myself as we follow clues, question witnesses, and try look for what others have missed.

 

There is no romance, though I know there are more books coming, so I wonder. I mean, just think about it, her body is scarred and so is her mind. She doesn’t want anyone in her house. Doesn’t want anyone touching her. And doesn’t want to share her secret. After what she’s been through, I can see why she protects herself, so who could possible get through the walls she has built up but the one person she trusts?

 

I am at 38% and my tension level is high, the pace is picking up, making me feel like the end is near, nut, there’s so much of the story left. I can only imagine what Joanna Schaffhausen has in store for her characters. I am lovin’ it.

 

I am filled with horror at the terrible things one person can do another, as the bits and pieces of Ellery’s captivity leaks out, each detail worse than the last.

 

Well…I didn’t see him coming. It takes a lot for an author to fool me so completely, especially near the end, but she had me eying the wrong guy until a page or two before he attacked. He was well camouflaged, but I will be on my toes with the next case, expanding my suspect list and reading between the lines.

 

Man oh man, I am so glad I took a chance on Joanna Schaffhausen. I had never heard of her. She kept me riveted from beginning to end and I can hardly wait for Book II, No Mercy. BRING IT ON!

I Need A J – Just You, Me and a Secret by Ganga Bharani Vasudevan @ganga_bharani

Just You, Me and a Secret - Ganga Bharani Vasudevan

The year is coming to an end and I was looking at my 2019 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge to find out what I was lacking and I needed a J. I looked through my Kindle and found Just You, Me and a Secret by Ganga Bharani Vasudevan. I picked it up on an Amazon free day, 6.7.16.

 

Just you, me and a secret

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

There are some definite bumps and bruises in Ganga Bharani’s first novel, but I am so happy I grabbed it on an Amazon free day.

 

I love the cover and it fits the story perfectly!

 

When I first began I struggled a bit. It reads like an ARC, rough around the edges, but I persevered and am glad I did.

 

Meera has lost her memory and her future husband, a doctor, is helping her to regain it. She reads her diary, Clara, and learns about her life. For some reason she is drawn to San, her lifelong friend, more than to Ashruth, her intended. Could the bash on her head have changed her that much?

 

As the story unfolds, I find myself getting more involved in her life and I am hoping she comes to the same conclusion I have.

 

The ending makes everything worthwhile.

Giveaway & Review – Winter Frost by Lauren Carr @TheMysteryLadie @iReadBookTours

Winter Frost - Lauren Carr

 

Book Details:

Book Title: Winter Frost  (A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery #2) by Lauren Carr
Category:  Adult fiction,  332 pages
Genre:  Mystery
Publisher:  Acorn Book Services
Release date:  January 22, 2019
Formats available for purchase:  paperback, ebook, audiobook (audible & itunes)Tour dates:  October 7 to November 22, 2019

Content Rating:  PG-13 (Lauren Carr’s books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!

“Filled with twists and turns, Winter Frost reads perfectly well as a stand-alone, although it is part of a series. The author creates tension and suspense throughout by keeping the reader guessing; she keeps readers engaged with well fleshed out characters and a dash of humor. Sterling, the retired German Shepherd police dog turned card shark, is a new favorite. As the story flows, the truth unfolds, layer by layer, leading to a satisfying conclusion.

“Winter Frost was an entertaining, at times humorous read with suspense, some surprises, and even cute animals in the mix.” Review of Winter Frost by The iRead Review
 

MY REVIEW

 

All right. Back with the Geezer Squad and a freezing cold case.

 

We start out with Blair witnessing multiple deaths as she runs for her life. No one to trust, it’s up to her to find her way to the director of the CIA, with the disc. She has secrets and comes face to face with one of them…Chris.

 

Chris has retired to a farm, but when he sees Blair, he has a lot to investigate…so, with the help of the Geezer Squad he begins.

 

From the opening pages the action begins and it doesn’t stop until the end.

 

The characters are tough, resilient, trained professionals. Nigel, with his trust guardian Tristan, is also on the case and pulls a fast one of me. I love surprises and this was a doozy.

 

I love the visual imagery throughout. Here is an example and I think it will easily portray my feelings.

 

The hundred pound dog repeatedly leaps, all four feet off the floor, to peep through the door.

 

I cannot begin to describe my love for Sterling and was going to share some of my favorite thoughts about him, then, I thought, I don’t want to spoil the surprise for you. Lauren Carr’s fabulous critters offer many moments of smiles and laughs with their distinct personalities, right down to Thor, the bunny rabbit.

 

I just want to let you know, if you see a German Shepard with sunglasses and an FBI hat, don’t get in his way. He’s probably on a case.

 

A conspiracy within the government. A high level official crossed over the line, turning traitor. Car chases. Bullets Flying. Danger rises and they are in a race against time.

5 Went In, 1 Came Out – Slash by Hunter Shea @huntershea1

Slash (Fiction Without Frontiers) - Hunter Shea

 

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

5 went in….1 came out.

 

Ashley King is afraid of the dark and from her past experiences, she has every reason to be. I feel so bad for her. Her fear of the dark and her only escape was pills to sleep and forget…for a while.

 

Todd gave her his parience and support, but he would not force her to do anything she didn’t want to do. He could only hope it would be enough.

 

Hunter Shea did not take her to a place I thought he would, and I love that he can throw me for a loop right out of the gate. When she hangs herself, it caught me totally off guard. All I could think is WTF? Now what? I can only imagine the pain and horror she lived through as it wore her down, a little more each day, until she couldn’t take it any longer…being the ‘final girl.’

 

Todd could not let it go. He has to go back where it all began. He has to know. And he will.

 

Once they crossed the boundary between the real world and Hayden lands, they are on his turf, and the horror begins.

 

Much of Slash by Hunter Shea is predictable, but Hunter is good for a twist or two.

Monday Mini – The Town That Feared Dusk by Calvin Demmer @CalvinDemmer

The Town That Feared Dusk (Short Sharp Shocks! #17) - Calvin Demmer
The Town That Feared Dusk (Short Sharp Shocks! Book 17)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Sylvia was searching for a good story to kick off her journalism career and almost immediately I thought I knew how the story would go…but not quite. Calvin Demmer wasn’t going to make it quite that easy for me.

 

Suicide Bridge…36 cases. Why had she never heard of it before?

 

I can guess. There’s something going on and everyone in town wants to keep it a secret.

 

Suitably creepy for an easy reading short story.

Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler @mhebler

Legend of the Chupacabra - Michael Hebler

Allright, Book III of the Chupacabra series by Michael Hebler, Legend of the Chupacabra. I got this book from Michael back in 2015 and finished it on 12.16.15. Man oh man it has been a wild ride…so, let’s get started.

 

Another fabulous cover in the series.

 

Legend of the Chupacabra (Chupacabra Series #3)

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

As I enter the third book in the series, Legend of the Chupacabra by Michael Hebler, I have been reading them one after another, I become more fond of Jessie and her tenacity. She had a sordid upbringing, is self reliant, untrusting. Life is not what she would have chosen, but she would make the best of it. If she ever became your friend, it would be for life.

 

I couldn’t understand her felling of dread and being stalked. After all, the chupacabra was dead…isn’t it? What do you think?

 

Hate and revenge are strong motivators, leaving some open to being duped and unleashing a horror never known before upon the white man. In this western world, we learn about man’s ability to be good and bad. Are they born that way or do circumstances dictate their actions? I love a book that makes me ponder deep questions.

 

Suspense, twists and turns, pain and sorrow, but love and hope blossom from the most evil depredations. Sometimes subsequent books in the series don’t hold up, but, no worries. Each book has held more depth, more terror and more suspense than the last. I cannot stop reading, the suspense and sense of urgency driving me to the end…but wait…there’s one more book. YAY!

 

OMG…NO…Michael, you are sheer evil. I had a feeling something had to happen, but, damn it! I sure didn’t see the ending coming and it was a fabulous surprise.

Wherewolves by John Vamvas & Olga Montes @WHEREWOLVESbook

WHEREWOLVES - John Vamvas, Olga Montes

 

I read this a long time ago, 1.16.15, rated it on Goodreads, but forgot to write the review. Sooooo, here we are. I love the Goodreads cover, so that is the one I am sharing.

WHEREWOLVES

MY REVIEW

 

I read this back in 2015, but never wrote the review. I have a ton of notes, so that must mean I would be sharing too much. Don’t want to spoil anything. Ya know, a group of kids goes in the woods, I think we all know that some are going to be left behind.

Silence in the Woods by J P Choquette @jpchoquett

Silence in the Woods - J.P. Choquette

J P Choquette asked me if I would like to read Silence in the Woods and I gave her a quick yes. I love anything to do with the woods and a good scare, maybe meeting Bigfoot, gotta go for it. How about you? Would you go looking for Bigfoot?

 

Cover: Bespoke Book Covers

 

Silence in the Woods (Monsters in the Green Mountains Book 1)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Four went into the woods…only one came out…with a harrowing story that got him locked up in an asylum.

 

The group of friends had went into the woods to photograph the elusive creature that was reputed to be the cause of missing people.

 

The book alternates between when they went into the woods and Paul’s story after he came out…alone.

 

Paul is determined to return. He feels that his wife, Jane, is still alive and hopes their friends are too. BUT…there is more than Bigfoot on the loose and he will, again, have to fight for his life.

 

We have plenty of mystery, action and horror. Also a bit of Indian mythology going on. So all I can say is…be careful of those hieroglyphs and hikes in the woods. I love stories about the woods and I would and do enter…willingly. Would you?

Empathy For A Psycopath – Duplicity by Sibel Hodge @sibelhodge

Duplicity - Sibel Hodge

 

I am doing my best to finish up on overdue reviews and Duplicity by Sibel Hodge is one of those. I received the book back in October of 2016. Seems I really overdid things that year.

 

I will tell you that I gave Duplicity 5 Stars, so I have no excuses for not posting the review in a timely fashion. I think you may be able to relate to my problem, too many clicks and yeses. I just wanted to grab them all.

 

Cover: Blacksheep Design

 

Duplicity

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

With a cover like Duplicity by Sibel Hodge, I just know there is some good stuff inside. I read Untouchable by Sibel Hodge and loved it, so I was eager to begin Duplicity.

Duplicity starts out ugly, making me think of Clarise in Hannibal…but severely damaged, twisted.

 

A terrible, abhorrent childhood with an abusive father, neglectful mother, screaming, yelling, isolation…I want to have sympathy…

 

I love this kind of book. I love to read about serial killers, psychopaths and sociopaths. To delve into their fictional, or true, mind fascinates me. No matter how much I understand it is not their fault they are what they are, they still make choices.

 

Psychopaths have no feelings, but are they all killers? They are smart, having to learn to fake all the emotions that ‘normal’ people have. Sometimes one pivotal moment can take someone down a path they never saw coming.

 

How do so many incompetents get high paying jobs that require knowledge and tact…which they don’t have? Does he have the skills to solve the case, to bring down a murderer? We shall see.

 

Twists! Turns! Surprises! I LOVE IT! OMG. Sure didn’t see that coming.

 

The writing and pacing, creativity, twists and turns, suspense and AHA moments kept me on the edge, glued to the pages, unable to stop reading, waiting for the next shoe to drop and who would drop with it. I don’t think there will be a happy ever after here.

 

As I flip through my notes, on paper and in my Kindle, I am even more upset with myself that I didn’t review this immediately. It is hard to express my emotions since it has been so long, but this is everything I love in a thrilling, chilling, creepalicious psychopath, and of course all the other characters. Sibel Hodge is definitely an author that will be at the top of my reading list.

Giveaway & Review – The Root of Murder by Lauren Carr @TheMysteryLadie @iReadBookTours

The Root of Murder - Lauren Carr

Amazon / Audiobook / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Even though I have only read Book III, Killer in the Band, in the Lovers in Crime Mystery Series, I had no trouble reading Book IV, The Root of Murder. Lauren Carr’s books read as stand alones that have recurring characters.

 

The title and cover were aptly chosen, as the bases of the murder goes back to the beginning, or the root of the secret and all that comes after.

 

Of course, Lauren Carr has some fabulous characters, people, villains and fur babies, that crack me up with their antics.

 

Poppy. I am so happy to read her story. She’s a good person, dealt a bad hand, but nothing stops her from moving on. She will be a great addition to the Thornton family.

Poppy’s faith and belief in things working out the way they are meant to be makes for a heartwarming, uplifting romance.

 

Gulliver, Ollie & Charley are unique characters with big personalities, bringing plenty of smiles and chuckles to the story. Once you meet them, I don’t think you’ll forget them.

 

Irving and Admiral are great manipulators and good for some chuckles at their antics.

 

Two murders with a spin that increases the suspect pool. And, of course, all the things that need to be dealt with in the normal world.

 

Animals and people alike are great and I love visiting them all as their lives grow fuller, richer.

 

Well, another happy ever after filled with romance, murder and intrigue, friendship and family, suspense and mystery, and characterless that will filled my heart with uplifting moments and humor.

Monday Mini – A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney @KerryDenney

A Mighty Rolling Thunder - Kerry Alan Denney, Nicolle Brown, Edd Sowder

 

A Might Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney is another one of those books that slipped through the crack. I finished reading it on 11.14.16 and loved it. Soooo…here we go.

 

Love the fabulous cover by Nicolle Brown Designs.

 

A Mighty Rolling Thunder

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

A Mighty Rolling Thunder by Kerry Alan Denney starts out so nice…but it quickly turns into a run for her life for Livy…enter Conor, a guy with no memory…

 

At 17% it hit me…I have had those same thoughts. What would I do? How far would I be willing to go if the shit hit the fan? Lawlessness, fear, hunger, need, desire…The Rapture…the people are gone, just vanished.

 

Could you imagine talking to your dog, yeah, I know you already do, but what if he really understood you…and talked back?

 

Victor, oh yeah, he’s the villain and he wants to rule the world and would do anything to make it happen. Power, he wants it.

 

Free will. Do you choose to share joy or sorrow? Hope or despair? Love or damnation?

 

I enjoy a desolate world with a cast of characters that must band together to survive.

 

Throw in some magic (?), and I am in heaven. Too bad these guys weren’t, but it sure did make for a great story because of it.

Monday Mini – Craven Street by E J Stevens @EJStevensAuthor

Craven Street (Whitechapel Paranormal Society #1) - E.J. Stevens

I have seen E J Stevens name bandied about and even follow her newsletter, so why I haven’t read or reviewed any of her work before surprised me. LOL So I set out to correct that and picked up a review copy of Craven Street, which was released 6.25.19.

 

Craven Street (Whitechapel Paranormal Society, #0.5, Ivy Granger Psychic Detective, #0.10)

Amazon / Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The cover has an eerie vibe and I do I love the location, Whitechapel. It made me feel as if Jack The Ripper was looking over my shoulder as I walked the streets…or should I say ran, because there be monsters here.

 

I also love that the Whitechapel Paranormal Society has an all female unit.

 

We have plenty of action and sometimes our enemy will be our friend, as the bodies pile up. Gritty, dangerous action in this other worldly battle between good and evil.

Though there is not a cliffhanger, the story is far from over.

Codename: Chimera by J K Persy #JKPersy

Codename: Chimera - J.K. Persy

Very pretty cover for Codename: Chimera by J K Persy. I got this book back in February of 2014, but didn’t read it until 1.15.15. I loved it and I don’t have any excuse for waiting so long to share it with you. The cover does not make me think of the cozy mystery that it is.

MY REVIEW

 

During their investigation, they learned about a project called Chimera and now the mystery deepens. Is it a conspiracy? Will they kill anyone to keep a secret?

 

A convoluted mystery centered around a medallion. Who does it belong to?

 

Codename: Chimera lacked a sense of urgency, but a lot of cozies do. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy them and I loved this one. I was super curious about the outcome and the deaths that follow the medallion.

 

I loved the trio and was happy to be along for their adventure. Codename: Chimera by J K Persy is not what I expected from looking at the cover, but it all made sense in the end.

 

The brain teasers are a bonus. I stopped and spent a lot of time trying to solve them. I wonder if you will too.

A Dragon Falls – Hidden By Megg Jensen @meggjensen @XpressoTours

Hidden - Megg Jensen

I downloaded a copy of Hidden by Megg Jensen a long time ago, 12.16.15, to be exact, but before that. I think it had been made free since I had signed up to review the book through Xpresso Book Tours. I finished reading the book on 1.3.15 and did rate the book on goodreads, but did not write the review.

 

AND…GUESS WHAT…IT’S FREE. But be sure and look for the ‘0’

 

Great cover by Michael Gauss

MY REVIEW

 

Dragons, can never get enough of them.

 

The living conditions put people’s true character to the test. Such close living makes it hard to hid their true colors. The characters are vindictive, revengeful, heroic and brave. I love ’em and hate ’em.

 

What is the fog? Is it treacherous, benign, hiding something? What happens to those who go into the fog?

 

I was engrossed from the beginning. The fog had me very curious and I wanted to walk into it with Tressa. When I first started reading the book, I was looking for dragons, but once I met Tressa, it became all about her. I love her strength. Her personality demanded she do what is right, no matter the consequences. She wasn’t reckless, she felt it was her duty to her people…as if she were their leader. Bastion, her true love since childhood, meant, fated, to be together.

 

The longer I read, the more I find is going on. I am loving my journey to the answers. It is exciting and dangers at the same time. I was bummed when a favorite of min bit the dust, added an unexpected twist, but I love when an author doesn’t walk the usual line and isn’t afraid to kill of their characters. Not predictable and plenty of surprises. Would love to read more.
