Vengeance of the Wolf By Solitaire Parke Review

Vengeance of the Wolf

By Solitaire Parke

Politicians are being murdered one by one in mysterious ways that cannot be natural, for instance the man whose heart has stopped that could have been explained as a heart attack except for the fact every bone in his body has been broken. Detective John Yardley, an FBI agent, and Frank Williams are determined to put a stop to these murders at any cost, but when the killer enters into a man’s dreams how will they ever find out who is responsible?

Vengeance of the Wolf

This is truly an original paranormal mystery, I had thought it would be scarier than it actually was but it leaned more towards the mystery side rather than the horror genre. All in all Solitaire Parke does a wonderful job bringing her scenes to life, drawing you into the nightmares of men and a bringing each instance to the forefront so vividly you will cringe. I just wish there had been more action, sometimes it can read rather slow but for the most part it is truly fascinating. With such a story line the novel is absolutely riveting; my favorite scene is when several vehicles run a woman over go around the block to do it again with the drivers having no control over themselves. I would give this one a try it may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it is so unique it is worth the read.

The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice Review

The Wolf Gift

By Anne Rice

Reuben is a young journalist writing a real-estate piece on a beautiful historic home off the coast of California, after connecting with the woman who owns the home and spending the night in her bed he awakes to her screams. The woman has been brutally murdered and the assailants turn toward Reuben next when a giant beast comes to his rescue, unfortunately the beast has bitten Reuben forever changing his life. When Reuben transforms into his man wolf form it seems he can sense the presence of evil and does whatever he can to stop violent crimes from occurring become a widely recognized vigilante dubbing himself as the Man Wolf. Though no one knows Reuben is actually the Man Wolf, with the notice wide spread throughout the world scientists come forth with maniacal ideas and want to run all kinds of experiments on Reuben. 

Anne Rice has taken a classic tale and come up with a new and surprising twist, part Superman and part Wolfman this is an interesting tale. The Man Wolf is able to keep full consciousness remaining aware of his actions as he would as himself and scenting on the air the true intentions of those around him.  Though at first Reuben is not the most of enjoyable characters, we soon follow him as he changes not only into his part wolf form but into a stronger person in general; in essence we follow along as Reuben goes from a happy go lucky boy to a hardened man. Though the ending was truly lacking in some points, I hope there is a sequel to this one because it leaves so many things up in the air and unfinished.

The Chase by Clive Cussler Review

The Chase

By Clive Cussler

The chase certainly lives up to its name, in 1906 Isaac Bell sets off to capture and stop a man who is robbing banks and brutally murdering everyone who is present, the last body count is in the thirties. From the very beginning this novel is action packed until the very end leaving you waiting desperately for the next book.

This was my first Clive Cussler novel; I had seen them at almost every book store I have ever been to so I, of course, recognized his name. I had not anticipated how wrapped up into this story I would become and I am now looking forward to finding more of his books to review.

Now You See Her by James Patterson Review

Now You See Her

By James Patterson

Would you risk your life to save the life of a stranger?  This is the dilemma Nina Bloom finds herself facing.  Nina has been in hiding since she found out she was pregnant eighteen years ago, but when an innocent man is about to be executed for a crime he didn’t commit Nina is the only one who can save him.

This was an intense suspense filled novel; James Patterson has managed to capture our attentions from the very beginning and does not let it go even after the end.  The book starts off with the history of Nina and why she is now in hiding and continues until she faces the demons from her past and they are laid to rest. This book is definitely worth the read, and the audio book was a lot of fun for me I especially enjoyed the added sound effects.
