Codename Fairy Godmother: Reassigned By Tanjlisa Marie Review

Codename Fairy Godmother: Reassigned

Codename Fairy Godmother Book One

By Tanjlisa Marie

When you make a deal with a Fairy Godmother you have until your thirty second birthday to “pay it forward” if not then that is where Agent Thunder comes in to send the unfortunate person to a fate worse than Hell. But when Agent Thunder runs into a Leprechaun she is reassigned by the Queen Mother for her own protection, until Ciaran, the Leprechaun tracks her down.

Codename Fairy Godmother by Tanjlisa Marie

So you may think this is your average fantasy novel, but you would be extremely mistaken. Thunder is a fighter first and foremost with a no nonsense approach to the human race. I loved when she began working with the children granting their wishes at first she is flummoxed and then she bullies the children into taking five minutes tops, when you add this hilarious aspect to the high powered action then combine the science fiction aspect to the story you have a truly exceptional novel with a little bit of everything for everyone. The only problem I had was that the romance seemed to be a bit lackluster, the author focuses more on her relationship with a particular child and less on her budding romance with Ciaran, which is fine by me it just doesn’t make the final storyline as powerful as it could be. That being said the rest is golden and worth the read.

Blind Veil By Michael Lorde Review

Blind Veil

By Michael Lorde

Former marine and now a long time police officer Lamont Simms has just bought a boat and is spending a few days out on the ocean taking a much needed vacation. As Lamont is napping off the few beers he has consumed a shadowy figure boards the boat only to sink it and wait for Lamont’s body. Fortunately Lamont escapes his imminent death and is rescued by an elderly man only to find himself the focus of a bizarre experiment.

Michael Lorde combines psychological thriller and science fiction to create a strange and intriguing novel, what if what you thought you knew was not real at all? The author did a wonderful job at leaving you guessing and in the end wanting to know more but would it be a true psychological thriller if there was a sequel; I loved the cliff hanger of this book. The scenes were exceptional and you can tell the author’s police background came into play giving the scenes a much more realistic feel to them. This was a quick and fun read if you enjoy detective novels you should definitely give this one a try it is unlike any I have read before.

Children of the Gods by Monica Millard Review

Children of the Gods

By Monica Millard

 

Every twenty-thirty years the “Gods” come into the village where Reka lives to choose a new host body. Reka tries to blend into the crowd and prays she will not be chosen but unfortunately she is and not just to host any “God” but the queen. When they pull her into the ship that will soon become her home every part of Reka fights back but as they insert the queen into her body she fears it was all for nothing, that is until she wakes and realizes Anaya is the consciousness that lies in the background and she is still in control of herself.

 

This book starts off a bit slow, there isn’t much action in the entire thing it is a romance as Reka begins to fall in love with the man who is her king, Jaxson. The inner turmoil she must face is the main focus of the story and Monica Millard did a wonderful job the only thing I wish is that when she mentions the flashbacks that Anaya is showing Reka that she would go into more details some of them she just mentions that Anaya did it and moves on. If you are a fan of Stargate then you will love this book they are very similar in some aspects but then very different in others, it is an interesting book and I hope I will be able to read the next book since this one is left with a fantastic cliff hanger!

Lost Princess: The Journey Home by Julie Rainey Review

Lost Princess: The Journey Home

By Julie Rainey

Anne has led a peaceful life with eccentric parents, and then one day a woman comes to take her home to regain her rightful place as Princess Isabella on the planet Vera. Once she is there Isabella must defeat the evil dictator who has taken over her parent’s kingdom. But this is only the beginning of her story shortly after she defeats Drakeon she is pulled into another adventure that will take her to places she has never imagined.

I had a hard time reading this book though the story is interesting, the writing could definitely use improvement. The author seems to stick mainly with the facts and use very little descriptive details though this allows the reader to use their own imagination it can be a bit discouraging in the reading process. There also were quite a few typos that can also be tidied up. All in all with some massive editing I think the author has hit on an imaginative and interesting tale, maybe even two considering how much actually occurs during this one book.
