A Life of Death by WestonKincade
Goodreads
Homicide detective Alex Drummond is confronted with the past through his son's innocent question. Alex's tale of his troubled senior year unfolds revealing loss, drunken abuse, and mysterious visions of murder and demonic children. Is he going insane? With the help of his close friend Paige Kurtley, Alex must find the source of his misfortune and ensure his sanity.

As a child Alex Drummond had to overcome great odds. Not only did he have to deal with the loss of his father, but an abusive drunk of a step-father further added to his woes. Alex isn't like most teens. He has an ability that, at first , he feels is more of a curse.

"A Life of Death" is a beautifully crafted paranormal tale that has the perfect blend of suspense, romance, and paranormal. The characters are well written and the pace of the action is just right.

This is my first time experiencing the author's work and will be keeping my eye on his upcoming titles.

RIDERS WHERE THERE ARE NO ROADS is the first full novel in the Riders of the Weird West series. There's roping, riding, an interdimensional badass, shootouts, demon cowboys, a dragon, a pickup that's really a horse (or is it the other way around?) and a mystical biker/cosmic Marshal who might just be orchestrating it all!


I'm back again with another book from the talented author David Bain. "Riders where There Are No Roads" is the first book of the "Riders of the West" series featuring characters from the authors previous story "The Cowboys of Cthulhu". Having never read the story that this one is based, I didn't know much about the story. What I did know was that it combined western and supernatural elements. I'm not a huge western fan but the author managed to make it an entertaining ride that I couldn't put down.

If you have read my reviews of the author's other works, you know by now that he is masterful at creating realistic intriguing characters and bring them to life among the pages."Riders Where There are No Roads" is no different. Here you will find great characters, setting, and action that makes for one hell of a ride.

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.
