What is the Price of Vengeance? One could understand why Liam is angry. Orphaned at the age of two by a group of giant carnivorous insects called the chitin, he was adopted by High Councilor Marcus and his wife, Lidia, and raised with their older son, Randolf, in New Olympia, the last remaining city on the planet Etrusci.

As an adult, Liam becomes a soldier. After being cut off from the city, he finds that there is an alien intelligence behind the chitin. To defeat it, he must discover who he is and how to use his powers. When Liam discovers that a traitor responsible for his birth parents' deaths has also murdered his beloved foster parents, he might find that the price he has to pay in his quest for vengeance will prove to be an even more unbeatable foe.

Science Fiction as a genre can range from the bizarre to realistic and everything in between. "Price of Vengeance" takes place on the planet of Etrusci. Liam was an orphan at an early age and as an adult he learns the truth of his past and must stand tall and fierce to help defend the city of New Olympia from the chitin.

One problem with some authors in the genre is that they fill the pages with boring tech and specs and lose the reader. With "Price of Vengeance" that is no problem as the author keeps the boring jargon out and instead fills the pages with intense battles and complex characters with an intriguing plot.

This book feels like a more grounded version of Starship Troopers, which isn't a bad thing. Liam's history and dilemmas kept me focused and the action scenes were icing on this sci-fi piece. If you are a fan of science fiction, check out this great read.

Check out D.S. Ullery on Goodreads
a sadistic high school bully seeking revenge against the anonymous individual who humiliated him online gets much more than he bargained for when he discovers the horrifying secret behind the screen name Gruff123.

Gruff123 is a short story that deals with school bullying. It hits a familiar tone with all the the school shootings and the much needed spotlight on bullying that is going on. The author's method of dealing with the bully in this story is a gory, effective, and entertaining.

His writing style is easy to follow with vivid descriptions and good characters. While Gruff123 has a suitable moral I wouldn't recommend letting younger children read this as it has violence and adult themes.

For horror aficionados like myself, I highly recommend reading this story. The author is one to watch as he has the skill and potential for big things.

Heroin In The Magic Now @TerryMWest

Title: Heroin In The Magic Now
Author: Terry M. West
Homepage|Facebook|Twitter


HEROIN IN THE MAGIC NOW takes place in an alternate version of NYC where every form of monster exists next to man. Gary Hack, a down on his luck porn director with an appetite for heroin, finds himself working in the dangerous world of monster fetish videos.

Gary is made an offer he can't refuse by Johnny Stücke, an immortal crime boss. The video Johnny envisions could be the greatest zombie fetish film ever created. But it could also ignite an apocalypse that could destroy the city.

Author Terry M. West has created an unnerving horrific masterpiece. From the opening lines to the final sentence, the characters and the world lingered long after I finished reading. The author used his past as a fuel for this raging tale and it pays off big time. Never have I read a story where I emerge feeling dirty yet enthralled; wanting more.

Gary Hack is a complicated character that I despised and yet felt remorse for. He just wants to make great movies and be respected by colleagues and fans alike, but his addiction has a firm grip and refuses to let go. He, the seedy setting, and secondary characters all belong within the pages of the tale and nothing seems out of place or contrived.

Fans of Mr. West's work or newbies alike will be hard pressed to find a better reading experience than Heroin In The Magic Now. It's a must read and I can't recommend it enough.
