The Labyrinth Wall Book Review





The Labyrinth Wall (Obsidian Series Book 1)

By Emilyann Girdner

Araina’s isolated teenage life is forever altered when she witnesses a man emerge through a rippling wall into the dark labyrinth she calls home. As a result of the stranger’s arrival, Araina’s Creators have unleashed a series of magical attacks using the labyrinth against its inhabitants. Now Araina must decide if she will trust potentially deceitful allies in order to reach safety on the other side of the labyrinth wall. 

The Labyrinth Wall is the story of a young woman who discovers that although labyrinth walls confine her and her enemies try to repress her, the power of hope can set her free. 

Will the walls that confine her be the walls that set her free? 

4.7 Star, Amazon Best-Selling Novel.

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE LABYRINTH WALL***

 Araina lives in a world made by the Creators. She is of a race called the Mahk also their creations. While the Creators live lavishly inside a castle, Ariana’s world is a labyrinth of starvation, greed, barrenness, and no one is to be trusted. One day while fighting with Darith, a fellow Mahk, they both witness a strange man being pursued by guards, burst right through the stone labyrinth wall. This begins a journey that Araina could never have imagined and changes her life forever.

This was a world I could not imagine. I could feel how lonely Araina was, and the helplessness of her situation. There was one spot that I didn’t understand and it never was explained. How was Sir Riddles in the tree with Araina? I thought it would be revealed later, but it wasn't. I can see how this story can continue into the next phase. I don’t know if Araina and friends are any better where they ended up, but I look forward to finding out, and learning more about Korun and Vickon.

Lost in Texas Book Review





Lost in Texas: The Owen D'Monet Story

By Owen D'Monet and Felix Fortuna

Lost in Texas: The Owen D’Monet Story (Adult Language, Adult Humor, Adult Content - it’s very Adult) is the tale of a guy and his struggle to survive with defaulted Student Loans, the bane of his existence. In search of hope and kindred spirits, he has been lured to a town in Texas by a public relations campaign advertising “Keep Lostin Goofy,” but he finds the place to be just another city in the grips of the Corporate Pursuit of Crappiness. His inexcusable, inescapable past catches up with him right off the bat, and it’s all he can do as a member of the All-American reject crowd to find a job, job, job and stay homeful while navigating through one crisis, crisis, crisis after another. It’s a funny story if you are not him.




...........................................................................
***MY HONEST REVIEW OF LOST IN TEXAS***

Owen D'Monet moved to Lostin, Texas attempting to outrun his overdue student loan bill collectors. Feeling that corporate America is out to get him, it doesn't take long for him to conclude that his circumstances will not be improved in this town, possibly anywhere.

First of all, I liked Owen very much. It was comical all of the circumstances he found himself in. With incidents like the bike spitting failure, the interview fart, and the Mexican kidnapping, I couldn't help but enjoy the story. The one thing I didn't like was the entire dialog he was constantly spouting. He is one of those people that I call a talker. Someone who never shuts up, and doesn't let you get a word in edgewise. I don't think I would be able to be around him for very long. But, in the long run, he's very likable.

Smugglers 3 Book Review


             



Smugglers 3 Accidental Kingpin

By Gerald McCallum

From Florida to Hawaii

The smuggling never stops and neither does the killing. Ride along with Geraldo who never planned on smuggling drugs. You might say the first batch of cocaine simply fell into his lap about ten miles off the coast of Miami. He and his buddies can't resist the riches the first hundred pounds of the premium white stuff represents. It is the start of their journey through hell. 

Bullets and Bodies

Geraldo discovers that he has a talent for smuggling drugs. But his gift brings out the worst in his opponents. Journey with Geraldo as he outsmarts the drug cartel. When his lifestyle wrecks havoc on his family, Geraldo finds he has an even greater ability to deliver revenge to those who cross him.

  
...................................…….........................................
***MY HONEST REVIEW OF SMUGGLERS 3***

During a friendly fishing trip, Geraldo and his friends come across a floating cooler containing 44 kilos of cocaine. They agree to cut and sell it in small quantities so as not to create suspicion. Before long though, they are spending money galore. which in turn puts them in the radar of crooked cops and the Mexican cartel.

I honestly didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two. Even though a few of the original characters were brought back, it still was lacking for me. All the carelessness and callousness had me constantly fearing for Geraldo's family. I guess greed is an addictive motivator. I also noticed that the author used the title of one of his books in the story. That was a nice touch. I would have liked more story along that line though. I think it would have added a little more strength to the scene.

Dragon Wife Book Review




 

Dragon Wife (Dragon Clan)

By Diana Green

The clan is waking. After centuries of spellbound sleep, dragon-shifters are returning to the mountains. They are few in number, and the outside world has become overrun with humans. 


Huroth, the dragon chieftain, recognizes a need for his kind to adapt, by forming alliances and mate-bonds with humans, but his clan is divided. From the first time she meets him, Lady Orwenna is drawn to the magnificent chieftain. The mind link he forms with her is both fascinating and frightening, as is the powerful attraction she feels for him. If only she knew what was in his heart. 

Does he want her for the woman she is, or for her magical abilities? When war breaks out between kingdoms and ancient enemies of the dragons resurface, the clan will be tested. In the midst of uncertainty, can Huroth and Orwenna find their way together? 


............................................................................
***MY HONEST REVIEW OF DRAGON WIFE***

 Orwenna dreamed of experiencing romance, adventure and mystery in her future. Reality crushed those dreams when her father betrothed her to Rollin, a boring, uncaring man who worked with her father. She knew she had to do something drastic to avoid this turn of events. That opportunity came when she overheard the King telling her uncle about an imminent attack that would need the help of the Dragon people. Several years before, an alliance had been made with Huroth, chieftain of the dragons. Orwenna decides to secretly follow the group delivering the message to Huroth. Along the way, the group is killed and it is left to Orwenna to get the message through in time to save the town.

I liked the spunk that Orweena had. I could feel the disappointment she felt with her father and Rollin.  And I also felt how strong the feelings she and Huroth had for each other. If the author carries this story further, I would like to know how her father and Rollin reacted to Orweena’s decision to run. Also, it needs more volume added to her magical abilities and background. I don’t think enough of that was revealed.
