My Week in Review: 12/2/17-12/9/17

I am truckin' right on through this zombie series by T W Brown and lovin' every minute of it.  :)  I have a couple of new to me authors lined up for next week and I am excited.  

Here is what I have for you this week:

Dead: Darkness Before Dawn by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

Winter has gone, but the world is no less inhospitable.

The survivors of this first winter now face some of the darkest and most soul-wrenching choices thus far. From the outskirts of London to an island refuge in Oregon, small groups struggle to build a new life.

Kevin recovers to a realization that shatters his dreams, yet he must stand up and take the role of leader...or die trying. His followers, now largely consisting of juvenile delinquents and society cast offs need him. Can he shake loose from his own misery to be their salvation?

Billy must decide what sort of life he wants to forge. Has he been following blindly and gone down the wrong path? And has Dr. Zahn finally discovered the mystery of the zombie children?

Dead: Spring by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

Everything hangs by the thinnest of threads. In a DEAD world, nothing is certain and nobody is safe. Friends have fallen, some enemies have been defeated only to be replaced by yet another. As the first year of the zombie apocalypse ends and a new year begins, can a person hope that the coming of spring can be a starting point for re-birth? If not...then what is the point of trying to survive? Fates will be sealed and destinies decided as winter finally fades, the darkness recedes and gives way to...

Lost Girl by Colleen Vanderlinden - 4 Stars ****

Molly Brooks is a telepathic vigilante with a few secrets and a mysterious past. Determined to make something of her bizarre powers, she devotes herself to saving those who need her most. One night, she's followed by a powerful being in a pickup truck, and her world will never be the same. Finding herself thrust into a world full of supernatural beings she could have only imagined, Molly learns how powerful she really is, and how much she stands to lose.

That Ghoul Ava and the Queen of the Zombies - T W Brown
4 Stars ****

Ava Birch killed herself and woke up a ghoul with an attitude and a hunger for the dead.

With no manual and very little help coming from the supernatural community, Ava offers her services to the regional psychic. Her newest job? Apparently zombies have been spotted in a small town nearby.

Ava wades in thinking that this job will be a piece of cake...or at least as tasty. Navigating meddling vampires, bothersome witches, and a peculiar case of memory loss...and now her best friend and human companion has up and walked out.

Things go from bad to worse when Ava discovers that there is a force behind these recent zombie sightings that may date back to the time of the Black Plague.

Sometimes a ghoul would just rather stay in bed...or at least her sound proof basement where nobody can hear you scream.

Hades Daughter by Charlotte Carol - 3 Stars ***

They’re a match made in hell: Reid Brice is the leader of a notorious gang called the Grim Reapers, and Scarlett Hades is the daughter of the lord of the underworld.

Scarlett convinces her father, Hades, to let her live on Earth for a year, as she is bored in Hell. She meets Reid on a weekend at the beach, but this is no ordinary, peaceful, sunny day: Reid and his gang are trying to kidnap a young girl. Scarlett comes to the rescue, and thus begins her entanglement with the Grim Reapers.

Reid pursues Scarlett, drawn by her bravado and her unusual nonchalance in the face of blood and deadly threats. He thinks this is the girl he has been looking for.

Will he still think the same when she reveals her true form to him? Or will he see her as nothing but a monster?

Waking Magic by Martha Carr - 3 Stars ***

Magic. Is. Real.

What if the weird and strange things you saw on the covers of tabloids was real? What if that was just the tip of the iceberg?

Homicide detective, Leira Berens is in a race against a maniacal magical force that wants to rip apart our understanding of reality at the seams.

With the help of a foul mouthed tiny troll, Leira must push beyond her limits to stop a devastating attack of magical proportions and come to terms with the fact that maybe her mother wasn’t crazy. Maybe there are elves, magical realms and things we just can’t explain. 

The stakes are real and so is the magical world she just visited.

With help from unexpected places, Leira is going to accomplish more than she ever thought possible.

That wraps up my reading week.  I hope you are reading something wonderful!

My Week in Review: 11/25/17-12/2/17

I was very excited to try a few new to me authors last week - as well as read the latest in zombie series I've been truckin' through.  These are the books I want to share with you today.

Dead: Reborn by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

Winter is losing its grip. 

For Billy and the survivors who began the nightmare, the loss of Steve Hobart is devastating, but could they finally be finding a place to truly call home? Kevin resumes his original quest for a safe place in the Badlands of the Dakotas, but with a whole new gang. However, they stumble across another group of survivors and face a new dilemma. Do you try to save others at the risk of those you know and love? 

Around the world, small bands of survivors fight to carve out a place for themselves, whether it is Sauvie Island or the British Isles...the struggle is the same. More horrors await, but with it, the first children of this new world bring hope...

Vaccination by Phillip Tomasso - 4 Stars ****

What if the H7N9 vaccination wasn’t just a preventative measure against swine flu?

It seemed like the flu came out of nowhere and yet, in no time at all the government manufactured a vaccination. Were lab workers diligent, or could the virus itself have been man-made?

Chase McKinney works as a dispatcher at 9-1-1. Taking emergency calls, it becomes immediately obvious that the entire city is infected with the walking dead. His first goal is to reach and save his two children.

Could the walls built by the U.S.A. to keep out illegal aliens, and the fact the Mexican government could not afford to vaccinate their citizens against the flu, make the southern border the only plausible destination for safety?

Grim Tidings by Amanda M Lee - 4 Stars ****

Grim(ace) while you work ...

Aisling Grimlock is having a bad week. Well, actually, she’s having a bad life -- not that she's complaining. Okay, she's totally complaining.

After being laid off from her secretarial position, she has no choice but to join the family business, and now she’s a full-time grim reaper. That’s right. She collects and transfers souls to the hereafter.

Cool, huh? Not quite.

On the second day of her new job, Aisling (literally!) stumbles over a dead body that’s not on her list and the stakes are suddenly raised because, when a name isn’t on the list, that means someone stole it (and that's never a good thing).

Aisling’s family, which consists of a tempestuous father and four overbearing older brothers, are hot on the case – but the answers they’re coming up with aren’t exactly soothing.

It seems a contingent of wraiths have descended on the area, and they’re not just dangerous for unsuspecting souls and the general populace. The Grimlock family is at risk, too.

If that weren’t bad enough, Aisling finds herself inexplicably drawn to Detective Griffin Taylor – the police officer who considers her a murder suspect. Oh, and she's a wraith-magnet -- although, truth be told, she's more interested in Detective Taylor.

Aisling is determined to prove that she has what it takes to be a great reaper – even if it means risking her life and proving her father and brothers wrong when it comes to her competence level.

When things finally become clear, will Aisling survive long enough to make things right? Or, will she fall prey to the wraiths and the individual controlling them?

Seizing Darkness by Mariana Thorn - 4 Stars ****

With her past distant and forgotten Natalya has built herself a nice life. She has a job she finds rewarding as a special agent with the Paranormal Investigation Bureau. Her partner, Dante, isn’t too bad for a bloodsucking vampire. Val, her boss, is like a father to her. Her favorite part is that she lives near the Cascade Mountains. Whenever she needs a little vacation, she can shift into a tiger and go running in the woods. 

Life is good.

That is until recently. Agents are turning up dead and Natalya can’t pin down what is going on. Little does she know that her past is about to come back and bite her in the tail. With no memories before the last year she is a little behind the curve in finding out what is going on. When the investigation turns increasingly dangerous and the attacks more personal, Natalya realizes it’s more than just her own life on the line. Will she find out what is going on before it’s too late?

Devil's Due by Percival Constantine - 3 Stars ***

Half-human. Half-demon. All attitude.

Luther Cross here. Dangerously handsome, effortlessly stylish half-demon, at your service. As I have inherited certain...abilities with my odd genetics, I’ve put them to use as Chicago’s foremost paranormal investigator.

My current case? Well, I have to admit, it feels a little personal. I’m helping a mysterious girl who’s turned up on my doorstep, pregnant through mystic means. I can’t help but think of my own mother…and if I don’t help her, she’ll face the same fate.

Turns out, someone is trying to create an army of half-demons. While it might be a pleasant change to hang out with my own kind, I know most half-demons don’t have my sense of morality. If I don’t stop this evil plan, the armistice between Heaven and Hell will be broken and all of the Earth will pay… It will be the beginning of the end.

There ya have it.  I hope you are reading something wonderful.

My Week in Review: 11/18/17-11/25/17

I hope all of my American peeps had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We did our first ever black Friday shopping and I had a blast.  I was completely tired when we got home, but it was such fun.  :)

Here are the books I'd like to share with you today.

Elusion by Zoe Parker - 4 Stars ****

The First Prophecy
Seed of Death and Dragon’s womb, suffering her fated tomb.
She, our savior, the Fallen’s soul, shall shed her blood to make us whole.
A vengeful Darkness she will arise, her love calls forth the Darkest tide
Yet, if her heart has ceased to beat, the world shall eclipse in Dark complete.

Pretend Ma told me the terrible things done to me were for the greater good. That I would be a hero and fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
I’m not so sure about that.
I am sure about that my time in this world is drawing to a close. I’m okay with that. I even wish for it, some days. Then I meet HIM. Mr. Glowy Eyes.
I’m also sure I’m a monster, and I’m CERTAIN that he’s so much worse than that. But he also shows me something important. Very important. Do you want to know what it is?
Are you still waiting?
I can’t tell you, silly rabbit. Who gives something like that away?
Mr. Glowy Eyes is waiting, too.
In the dark…
Under the bed…
I can’t promise he won’t eat you…

But I can promise you won’t mind when he does.

Dead: Siege and Survival by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

The first winter has come, and with it, new problems. No longer are the zombies the biggest threat to survival. With the global infrastructure gone, people are forced to do whatever it takes to survive...even the unthinkable.

Steve faces his toughest decision yet as he tries to lead his people through one nightmare after another. Kevin risks everything to save one girl and finds himself in the middle of a military fight for power. Juan fights his way home, but soon finds himself leaving the the worst time possible. Two women set out for London...but one has a secret that she is keeping under wraps. One man seeks to be a god as a new exodus occurs in Egypt. A soldier abandons his post, but can he escape his duty?

The darkest days have come now that winter has most of the world in its clutches.

Dead: Confrontation by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

Several months have passed since the dead began to walk. The first winter has taken its toll in more ways than one as humanity continues to struggle to survive.

Not every threat to humanity comes form the undead as so many have discovered man's ability to sink into depravity with the absence of law and order. Time and again survivors have fought, run. and regrouped. Yet, there seems to be no respite, and as winter draws on...things become more and more difficult to endure. A new threat seems to materialize even before the last can be dealt with. And if the physical toll was not enough, the hours of isolation and the time left with one's thoughts can become just as destructive.

How much more can you take?

Dead Team Alpha by Jake Bible - 4 Stars ****

In the post-apocalyptic, zombie infested wasteland, there is one beacon of safety in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains: The Stronghold.

For decades, the inhabitants have fortified and defended the Stronghold from zombie hordes, building their society and culture on military precision.

And chosen from the best of the best is Denver Team Alpha. DTA is the elite strike force used to rescue survivors and refugees that have made it to the hellish wasteland of Denver below. But because of the unbelievable risks, and high mortality rate, DTA has come to stand for something else: 

Dead Team Alpha.

Now DTA will be put to the test as something far worse than zombies comes at them out of the wasteland.

That Ghoul Ava by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****

That Ghoul Ava: Her First Adventures gives you TWO entertainingly funny Ava tales. 

Relive the day she first joined the supernatural community and discover how her bond with the human Lisa Jenkins first began. Also meet regional Psychic, Morgan and the vampire that would get under Ava's skin from their first encounter in a 24 hour super market. 

Then, In Ava versus the Rogue Vampire, follow Ava and Lisa on their first real "assignment" on behalf of Morgan when a rogue vampire slips into Vampire Queen Belinda's territory and starts killing indiscriminately. 

Just don't expect Ava and Belinda to share a hug when it is done...

I really enjoyed all of these books.  I hope you are reading something great.

My Week in Review: 11/11/17-11/18/17

Guys, I found a new to me zombie series - whoop, whoop!  I am so excited.  I know this is gonna sound so wrong - but when I read a good zombie book, I get the munchies something fierce.  I know, it is shameful.  :)

Here are the books I read last week:

Dead: Revelations by T W Brown - 5 Stars *****

The zombies have risen, the world has spiraled into chaos. Small pockets of survivors continue to struggle each day to survive. The best and worst of humanity fight the undead and themselves as they come to grips with a new, violent reality.

Dead: Fortunes & Failures by T W Brown - 5 Stars *****

The DEAD saga continues...
It has been months...

Steve has seen the worst in himself...and others. Now, it seems that zombies aren't the only threat to the lives of his companions. Will he lose those he loves to the walking dead...or a murderer?

Kevin is the last geek standing, and a reunion with an old acquaintance puts him back in charge of a group of survivors. Will he fail in the one thing he thought he was prepared for? Or will he find his redemption?

Juan struggles with Mackenzie's past...a scientist tries to create Eden with an unlikely Eve...and a young girl struggles to keep her sanity at the hands of a monster far worse than the ones gathered outside the walls of her family estate.

Dead: Winter by T W Brown - 5 Stars *****

Winter is coming... 

As survivors around the world struggle to get their feet under them in a world overrun by the walking dead, a new problem rears its head. As unstoppable as any horde of zombies, the seasons march on, heedless of the fragility of the human race. The first winter is approaching.

Up in the mountains of northeastern Oregon, Steve's band settles in but discover something so horrible that it may destroy them before the weather has a chance. Kevin faces ghosts from his past while struggling to maintain unity among his people. 

In other parts of this dead world, a team of scientists struggle to devise a cure... A new pharaoh rises in Egypt... Chad learns he will do anything to keep his daughter safe... Juan struggles with the demons of his past that tell him he is unfit to lead...or love... A military unit tries to restore order at any cost...

Brush With Death by Ware Wilkins - 4 Stars ****

Introducing Sadie Salt, Paranormal... Dentist?

All Sadie Salt ever wanted was to make smiles whiter... and to track down the creature that murdered her parents. She spends her days as a dental assistant to the humans in her small town of Grimloch and her nights doctoring to its, well, not-so-human residents.

Unfortunately, the nightlife doesn't know how to stay in the shadows where it belongs. Sadie's working tirelessly to pay off a nasty debt to a fairy she doesn't want to cross, coping with a magic she can't use, and dreaming of a relationship with the local Sheriff-- not that that's going to happen.

But when a corpse turns up in her apartment, Sadie's dragged deeper into a world where wielding a scraper and a water pick does more harm than good. Her past is coming back it haunt her in a bad way, and she's suddenly closer to her parent's killer than expected. With a vampire keeping tabs on her and a best friend whose predictions rarely hit the mark, Sadie's discovering revenge is more muddled than she expected.

Will she be able to clean up the mess before someone tries to scrub her out permanently?

Witch and Moan by Val St. Crowe - 3 Stars ***

Petra Brightshade gets captured and then wakes up on a circus train in a car with some elephants, with a dampener on her wrist that keeps her from using her primal magic.

It’s not exactly her favorite day ever.

When she finds out she’s been captured because her blood is the only thing that can reopen the breaches she just closed, she knows she’s got to escape, find the others, and figure out some way to stop her captors once and for all.

No way is she reopening the breaches. No effing way.

There you have it.  I hope you are reading something wonderful!

My Week in Review: 11/4/17-11/11/17

So, getting back on the reading wagon after vacation in Florida was a bit of a struggle.  :)  It took me two days of being home before I even picked up my Kindle.  That being said, I only have three books to share with you today.  

Dead: The Ugly Beginning by T W Brown - 5 Stars *****

The unthinkable has happened. The dead are walking! Humanity's fragile thread may be reaching its bitter end. Individuals and groups struggle to survive...some at any cost. Will there be anybody left? Or, is this just...The Ugly Beginning?

Web of Deception by K L Phelps - 4 Stars ****

Do you have one of those little voices in your head that tells you right from wrong, that tries to get you to be good and to do the right thing? I don’t. Oh, I have a voice in my head, but it never tells me to be good. Why? Because the voice in my head belongs to a demon.

My name is Cassidy Cane and in order to save my boyfriend I swapped a piece of my soul with a demon.

Worst mistake ever.

Not only did he end up leaving me, but for a while I completely lost my mind. With the help of Murph, a rather unusual priest, I learned to quiet the demon within and am coming to terms with my new reality. The world around us is full of supernatural creatures, and lucky me, now I’m one of them.

When young girls start to go missing, I’m asked to look into it. But there’s a few problems. My search for answers is only leaving me with more questions, and the demon within no longer seems content to sit back and remain silent.

It’s so hard to do the right thing when you have a demon whispering in your ear.

Poisonous Temptation by Isadora Brown - 3 Stars ***

When a witch without powers and a vampire living in isolation cross paths, the world as they know it changes forever. And with those changes come grave danger for them both.

Despite years of trying, Aurelia Stone can't seem to do even the simplest of spells, and no one in her family of purebred witches is willing to help. Instead, her mother suggests she accompany her sister during a gladiator battle in hopes to inspire magic, but the magic Aurelia ultimately taps into is not the kind she should feel. In fact, it’s downright forbidden, and the punishment for using such magic is death by pyre. When a gladiator rescues her from an attack and offers her his blood, she knows she should say no. Yet she gives into temptation anyway, regardless of the consequences.

Before the Rift, Thyos was part of the worst known clan of vampires. That is, before they excommunicated him for doing something as weak and as stupid as having a conscience. Now, he lives in the Citta di Paludi, isolated and alone. Something he prefers. When the emperor forces him to entertain by killing his own kind for the amusement of spectator, he does only so to keep the tiny shred of freedom he has. But when Thyos rescues a witch from the hands of a human, he not only breaks his own rules, but the laws of the gladiator as well.

When Aurelia's powers finally manifest at the most inopportune time, they come with dire consequences. Now she must decide what it really means to be a witch: to be part of a family and a faction that has isolated her for her entire life, or to be true to her heart. But what if following her heart puts her life and Thyos in danger?

I hope you are reading something great!  Thanks for stopping by.

My Week in Review: 10/28/17-11/4/17

I was on vacation over the weekend, we went to Disney.  Had a blast at Animal Kingdom - but I am glad to be home.  With the preparation for our adventure, I did not get quite as many books read as I normally do - but here they are:

The Merging by John P Logsdon & Christopher P Young
5 Stars *****

A set of naughty ubernaturals, a demon-powered mage, and a wealthy amalgamite playboy who is far more than he seems.

Ian Dex is a genetically engineered cop, a bad ass with a gun, and he has a reputation for being quite the horndog. He's also the current chief of the Las Vegas Paranormal Police Department (PPD). His job is to monitor all supernaturals and their involvement in the world of normals.

A new breed of supernaturals has turned up on the Vegas Strip, and they're a lot tougher than your run-of-the-mill vampires and werewolves. These are larger, meaner, and stronger...and they laugh at wood and silver bullets. To make matters worse, the mage who created them is bent on world domination and he's got the chops to back it up. He's confident, deadly, loves inflicting pain, and has a tendency of walking around with his shirt open because he looks like a Chippendale's model. Plus, he's using demons to give him an inexhaustible supply of power.

With this new threat terrorizing the town, the PPD must battle werewolves, vampires, fae, demons, and a succubus while trying to stop Vegas from getting flipped on its head. It'll take every PPD officer to the brink of their abilities to even have a shot at stopping the mage and his nefarious plans.

The sad reality is that this dude may be beyond their capabilities.

On top of that, the mage wants to join forces with Ian, believing they'll make the perfect team to lay waste to the masses. He offers Ian more power than he can ever imagine, a seat at the main table when the world is at their feet, and a 7-foot tall succubus who has diamond-like eyes, long flowing hair, glistening skin, and glutes so tight that Ian imagined she could crush a walnut between them.

Tempting indeed.

Ian only has to do one thing to prove his loyalty: kill his crew.

Locker Nine by Franklin Horton - 4 Stars ****

A terror attack, a prepper's daughter, and a psychopath obsessed with video games.

Grace's dad taught her survival, self-defense, and shooting, then sent her away to college hoping she'd never need those skills. All he wanted to give her a fighting chance. When society collapsed, she fought.

Grace Hardwick’s dad is a science fiction writer who makes his living destroying the world. When Grace decides to go away for her first year of college her dad, Robert, can’t help but think of all of the potential ways that society could collapse and strand his daughter hundreds of miles from home. Then, near the end of her freshman year, it happens. Like a scene from one of Robert’s books, coordinated terror attacks take place at dozens of locations around the country – including on the campus of Grace’s university.

Grace and her father barely have time for a single rushed phone call before they lose signal. In that call, Robert reminds his daughter of the key he gave her when she left for school – the key that she constantly wears around her neck. She doesn’t know what it opens. She doesn’t know where the engraved numbers will lead her. All she knows is that her dad is not the type to let her go hundreds of miles from home with no backup plan.

With her roommate in tow, Grace embarks on a treacherous journey that may lead her home or may lead her right into the path of another stranded traveler -- a disturbed gamer who sees nothing but opportunity in a world that now closely resembles that of his favorite video games.

Realms of Ghost and Magic by J S Malcom - 4 Stars ****

When the fae beckon, very few resist. Even fewer return.

As a veil witch, I’m used to taking out the supernatural trash. Everything from poltergeists to vampires, you name it and I’ve dealt with it. So opening a paranormal cleanup business just seemed to make sense. If I’m already dealing with the pests, why not get paid?

But when I accidentally breach the faerie realm to encounter a girl recently reported missing, start seeing the ghost of a witch whose disappearance has never been solved, and discover a Book of Shadows that opens only for me, I can't just go back to business as usual. Especially when I also gain the interest of a sexy and mysterious mage. Timing is everything, and even as my desire grows, a little voice inside keeps reminding me to step carefully. I know all too well that, in the supernatural world, opening doors means facing consequences. In this case, those consequences might just mean never being heard from again.

White Flag of the Dead by Joseph Talluto - 3 Stars ***

Millions died when the Enillo Virus swept the earth. 

Millions more were lost when the victims of the plague refused to stay dead, instead rising to slaughter and feed on those left alive. 

For survivors like John Talon and his son Jake, they are faced with a choice: Do they submit to the dead, raising the white flag of surrender? Or do they find the will to fight, to try and hang on to the last shreds or humanity?

I hope you are reading something fantastic.  Thanks for stopping by.

My Week in Review: 10/21/17-10/28/17

I had high hopes for my book choices of last week.  Unfortunately, they did not turn out to be as great as I would have liked, several are not worth mentioning.  That being said, here are the ones I'd like to share with you:

Dead Mech by Jake Bible - 4 Stars ****

Hundreds of years after the zombie apocalypse decimates the world, human civilization has put itself back together again. Their secret weapon against the zombie hordes: the Mechs. 

Massive robotic battle machines. 

But what happens when a mech pilot dies in his mech and becomes a zombie? Hell on earth is unleashed... Prepare for a high action, fast paced, hell ride through a futuristic wasteland as Mech Base Commander James Capreze and his crew of mech pilots battle zombies, cannibals, religious cults and worst of all, the Dead Mechs, all to try and save the human race one last time.

Warlock for Hire by Sean Stone - 3 Stars ***

Murderous seer. Mother taken hostage. Someone needs a warlock for hire.

Eddie Lancaster is a warlock for hire. He can provide almost any magical service for a price. After a mysterious woman, Ashley Sheridan, hires him to remove her magic, he starts investigating to find out why. When he finds out she’s being forced to work for a murderous psychic things take a turn for the worst. Killian Myers is the most powerful psychic Eddie has ever met — there is nothing he doesn't see coming.

Eddie attempts to help Ashley get free of Killian but ends up on the receiving end of a violent encounter with the psychic. He is given an ultimatum: help Ashley create a ritual that will make Killian invincible, or watch everyone he cares about die.

Eddie has to find a way to stop Killian before everyone he loves ends up dead. But how do you beat a man who sees your every move before you’ve even decided to make it?

Ashen Rayne by Skye Knizley - 3 Stars ***

Young women are vanishing from Miami’s club scene, most disappearing without a trace, others found suffocated in plastic bags, their battered corpses filled with a deadly cocktail of narcotics.
There are no suspects and few clues.
When exotic dancer Rayne is taken, her sister Blaze calls the ladies of Shadowlands to find her.
With only five days before Rayne is found dead or never found at all, Smoak and Ash dive into Miami’s underworld of drugs, prostitution and slavery, using every skill they have to find her before the clock runs out.
In trouble and have nowhere to turn?
Call Shadowlands. We’re here to help.

Rogue Magic by N R Hairston - 3 Stars ***

My name’s Rekia, and I’m wanted dead or alive.

So, how does a small town girl from the south end up in the fight for her life between two powerful worlds? It’s simple. I have the ability to open portals to alternate dimensions.

This works out great for my business. I take crooks, thieves, criminals on the run from the law, etc. . . and I hide them where they’ll never be found- in one of the many alternate worlds- for a small fee of course.

Everything’s going fine until I discover a secret plot between two powerful worlds that could have widespread conquests across all dimensions. Now I’ve made enemies of the wrong people, and they’re coming for me.

I could walk away. I could hide myself on some inconspicuous world and never look back. Except, there’s a fire in my gut now, and like a dog with a bone, I’m not letting this go.

So instead of hiding, I crack my neck, flex my hands, and tell them to bring it. This may very well mean my death, but I don’t plan on going down without a fight.

Planet Dead by Sylvester Barzey - 3 Stars ***

Zombies Are The Least Of Your Problems! During This Apocalypse, People Can Be Just As Horrifying!

It's 2019 & Catherine Briggs is having a very messed up year. Her car got stolen, her family thinks she's dead, there's an unwelcome late night visitor at her door and oh yeah, the world's become infested with zombies!

Catherine is on a mission to find her family, no matter the cost, but fate seems to have other plans in store for her.

Will she find her family before the rest of the world falls into this new era of hell or will Catherine Briggs became just another zombie in...

Planet Dead: Bloodthirsty!

There you have it.  :)  Hope you're reading something great.

Thanks for stopping by,
