The Moon Dwellers By David Estes Review

The Moon Dwellers

The Dwellers Book One

By David Estes

Humankind was forced into the depths of the earth soon forming a new society called the Tri-realms, with three distinct realms Moon, Star, and Sun. The Moon realm is the furthest into the ground and this is where the “Pen” is. The Pen is a penitentiary and houses anyone who has committed a crime or anyone who may cause crime in Adele’s case since she is sentenced to life imprisonment for something her father did. One day Tristan the son of the President and a sun dweller comes down to the moon realm and as soon as he lays eyes on Adele he feels an over powering connection. But soon a war breaks out amongst the three realms everyone’s life will be irrevocably altered.

The Moon Dwellers (The Dwellers, #1)

Am I the only person who has caught the similarities between the Mormon’s Three Kingdoms of Heaven and the Tri-realms? I mean the Three Kingdoms of heaven are broken down into the Sun, The Stars, and The Moon Kingdoms. Each one holding a different set of people but since this is the Moon book I will focus there, The Moon realm houses the poorest and the worst people in society; The Kingdom of The Moon is for liars, thieves, and the worst kinds of people. This is not a bad thing the three kingdoms of heaven is a great bases for a story I just can’t believe in all of the reviews I have read No One has pointed it out. The story itself is amazing full of romance and action, David Estes’ is a magnificent writer who is able to bring to life each scene making this a great dystopian novel.  I have to give the author his credit though, not only did he dedicate the book to his wife but he named the main character after her, if that didn’t win him brownie points then I don’t know what would.

Perfection Unleashed by Jade Kerrion Review

Perfection Unleashed

Double Helix Book One

By Jade Kerrion

Galahad was created to be the perfect human being by Pioneer Labs. However Pioneer Labs is performing torturous experiments on Galahad. When Zara breaks into the Labs to kill Galahad but instead after discovering the horror he is going through releases him. This is only the beginning as the story twists and turns weaving itself around three main characters, Galahad, Danyael, Jason each having their own story to tell.

 Perfection Unleashed (Double Helix, #1)

This was certainly an interesting story; you have Galahad the genetically created perfect human being who has been tortured his entire life. Then you have Danyael who is a strong empath and has worked hard at controlling his abilities. Add in Jason who hates Galahad with a fiery passion, so much so he even created his own hate group. With these three interweaving stories you have a remarkable novel and Jade Kerrion used exceptional writing abilities to truly capture the complexities of each of her characters, and though these three stories should be enough to keep you reading the author makes sure to throw in a few more twists and turns that will ensure you will come back for more.  I cannot wait to see what is to come in the next book with the mix of science fiction and fantasy there is an endless amount of possibilities.

Moonlight and Mechanicals by Cindy Spencer Pape Review

Moonlight and Mechanicals

Gaslight Chronicles Book Four

By Cindy Spencer Pape

Wink Hadrian does not like being in “high society” she would much rather stay in her garage and tinker with her inventions. She is in love with a werewolf, Liam McCullough and has been for years however after she is proposed to by a dear friend and Liam pronounces that he will never marry she gives up hope and looks toward the other man instead. When Wink goes to visit the woman who took her in when she was a child back in Wapping and finds out that her son has disappeared. She quickly turns to Liam who works with the police. But Liam soon discovers that people are disappearing at an alarming rate all of Wapping.

 Moonlight & Mechanicals (Gaslight Chronicles, #4)

There is so much going on in this book, first you have the steam punk aspect which is amazing and reinforced by Wink who inventions are truly fascinating. Then you have Vampires and Werewolves Oh my!, Liam is actually a werewolf and we get to see that side of things with a firsthand perspective when he goes through the change. Now we also have a couple of side story lines such as the world is dying out, wish there was more on that, everywhere that anyone goes they must wear a filter over their nose and mouths because the air is so unstable, really wish there had been more on that. This is an amazing book and Cindy Spencer Pape has done a remarkable job. I have yet to read any of the other books in this series but the author brought to life Wink and all of her siblings so spectacularly that I am dying to find out what will happen next.

Fledge by J.A. Huss Review

Fledge

I am Just Junco Dot Com Book Two

By J.A. Huss

Junco Coot has just made her way to Amelia the avian capital city where she must undergo the Fledge ritual. Fledge is where she will fight to the death in order to become a citizen. All the while the love of her life and the one who brought her to Amelia, Tier, is on trial for treason for letting her live, and if found guilty it is an automatic death sentence.

Fledge (I Am Just Junco, #2)

When I first started reading this book I was completely lost, I haven’t read book one so it took me a while to get into the story as the author picks right up where she left off and doesn’t start “flashbacking” until a little ways into the book. After this first hurdle though I really enjoyed the storyline, it is a truly unique science fiction novel. The characters that J.A. Huss has created are so fascinating not only does the author describe the Avians, but through the Fledge she also encompasses beings from other planets with their own unique abilities. The only problem I have with this book is that it is another case of an author finding one particular word that they enjoy and use it over and over, in this instance it is the F word. The fact that it is a cuss word doesn’t faze me, what bothers me was using the same word at least once three sentences in a row, sometimes more than once, though different variances on the same word, in the same sentence. Other than that it’s a great read action packed and so original that I cannot wait to read more of the series.

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.
