Flight By J.A. Huss Review

Flight

I am just Junco Book Three

By J.A. Huss

Junco and her team must travel to earth in order to save The Siblings of Earth. Along the way Junco finds that everywhere she turns is full of secrets and revelations. What if you had the power to save a race of beings at the cost of the other? Junco may be strong willed but what she faces back on Earth will be a trial even for her.

Flight (I Am Just Junco, #3)

I love Junco she is a loud mouthed character who doesn’t take crap from anyone. Plus she cusses like a sailor and chain smokes cigars, what’s not to love? What was annoying in this book though was that the men in Junco’s life seemed to turn into whining and needy men, each one vying for Junco’s attention and pouting if she didn’t reciprocate. Other than that the book is pretty good with tons of action and adventure, and so many twists it is hard to keep count. I did have one question, at the end of the book how did they keep everything straight? That’s all I will say or I will run the risk of ruining the book for those who haven’t yet read it. This is one of those books though you definitely want to read the rest of the series before jumping in. From page one this book held my attention I wasn’t a fan of the ending but it is definitely a great way to make sure you keep reading the series.

The Deep by Peter Benchly Review

The Deep

By Peter Benchley

A Honeymooning couple is diving off the coast of Bermuda when they come across a shipwreck and a small glass vial that will forever change their lives. When they return to their hotel room with the glass vial a strange man approaches them trying to buy it from them claiming the glass is rare they refuse, proclaiming they must find out what is in the vial before they are willing to sell it to anyone. From there a man who doesn’t even exist officially tries to hire them to find more of the vials and soon the couple discovers what is so valuable, the small vials actually contain pure morphine. This is only the beginning of their adventure as they work with the local light house keeper to find as many of the vials they can before they fall into the wrong hands.

 

The man who wrote this also wrote Jaws so I was excited to be able to write a review, it turns out I wasn’t disappointed. Though not quite as scary as Jaws was this book certainly holds up with its action and adventure until the very last moment. I will say I hated the ending and it will definitely leave you wanting to know more, otherwise it was a fun and quick read.

Abigail Deane and The Demon’s Gate by L.H. Thomson Review

Abigail Deane and the Demon’s Gate

Abigail Deane Book One

By L.H. Thomson

 

Abigail’s life has just been turned upside down, her mother was killed and now she must adjust to living with an aunt she never even knew existed in a small town in England a far cry from her home in Chicago. But this is just the beginning of Abigail’s story she soon finds out that she is a sorceress and must learn to control her magic before she becomes the target of a more sinister plot. Shortly after she realizes what she actually is strange things begin occurring and she is pulled into a nightmare that stretches all the way back to ancient Africa and the Holy Land.

 

L.H. Thomson did a wonderful job bringing this story to life and considering he incorporates such places as London, Spain, and Jerusalem that is a remarkable task in and of itself but with vivid details of the landscape each one is impressive in its own way. The story itself is intriguing though Abigail is recently orphaned she is strong and does her best not to let her own life stop with that of her mother’s as she learns more about her gifts she also learns more about her mother and feels a connection with her that she had never felt before it is truly beautiful. But do not misunderstand my review this far it is not a sappy sort of novel but full of extraordinary twists and enough adventure and action to keep you coming back for more.

The Mine by John Heldt Review

The Mine

By John Heldt

Joel Smith, a geology major, is on a road trip with his best friend when they are detoured in Helena Montana decided to make use of their time in the small town Joel finds an abandoned mine and with his adventurous nature combined with his love of geology he has to explore it. But somehow he is transported back to 1941 and to an America that is on the brink of war, what he doesn’t expect on this adventure is that he will fall in love with the most captivating woman.

The Mine is an interesting historical novel; the author did a wonderful job in bringing to life a time in America when war is in the near future leading to a time of apprehension of things that have yet to come. A lot of authors have written about World War II but none have brought to the public a novel of what it must have been like right before Pearl Harbor was attacked. John Heldt did a wonderful job, the story is written so beautifully that the story takes on a life of its own with breathtaking scenery and heartfelt romance all against the backdrop of uncertainty and conflict. This story brings the question “Can love conquer all?” to the forefront in a most unusual way. If you are a fan of time travel romances I would definitely give this one a try.

The Turning Tides by Derrolyn Anderson Review

The Turning Tides

Marina’s Tales Book Four

By Derrolyn Anderson

Over the past year Marina has found out that she is actually half mermaid and an exceptionally gifted one at that, which brought her to the attention of an evil group of people bent on finding the secret of immortality after they’ve kidnapped her twice she has had enough of feeling weak she begins her plans to fight back starting with learning how to defend herself in hopes of protecting her mermaid sisters. All the while Ethan’s mother has come back into the picture bent on breaking Marina and Ethan up. Will Ethan be able to trust Marina and will Marina be able to stop the deadly experiments before it is too late?

This is the final book in the Marina’s Tales series and Derrolyn Anderson could not have ended it better, though it makes me sad that it is over I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. The tunr of events in this novel are spectacular Marina received an ominous prediction about two four people who would be coming into her life and two of them who mean her harm, with that prediction Derrolyn Anderson keeps you guessing throughout the entire book as to who wants to hurt her one of them is obvious from the beginning, the prologue will have you cursing under your breath, but the other is much more subtle and quite an interesting plot twist. This is definitely a great series, I wish there was more out of pure greed but if there were then the story would become tedious.
