My Review of A Face in the Crowd

Review:

A Face in the Crowd - Stephen King, Stewart O'Nan

A Face in the Crowd was written by Stephen King and Stewart O’Nan. Dean Evers is a widower who sits alone and watches baseball, then notices familiar faces in the crowd. Faces of people who should be dead.

A great collaboration that was quick and fun to read. What can I say? It’s Stephen King!

My Review of Kellie’s Diary #1

Review:

Kellie's Diary #1 - Angeline Perkins, Thomas  Jenner

Kellie’s Diary by Thomas Jenner is the first installment of the Kellie’s Diary series. We follow Kellie as she tries to survive during the zombie apocalypse.

This is a short story written as diary entries by Kellie as she tells her tale. It’s very interesting how the author decided to write this story this way. Kellie’s entries gives us a glimpse into the end of the world as she sees it. I loved the way this was written. It’s definitely written as if it’s a little 9 year old girl writing in her diary.

My Review of Keep in a Cold, Dark Place

Review:

Keep in a Cold, Dark Place - Michael F. Stewart

Keep in a Cold, Dark Place by Michael F. Stewart is a story of Limphetta O’Malley, best known as Limpy, who lives on a potato farm. She has aspirations of a grander life, in fact, she wants to pursue her love of sewing. While rotating the potato bags in the barn one evening, Limpy discovers a hidden box. What she unleashes will change her world forever.

This is a well written story of determination, facing your fears, and self-discovery. Michael’s story gripped me and wouldn’t let go. The characters stay with you, and gives you something to think about. 

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

My Review of Shadow Weaver

Review:

Shadow Weaver - MarcyKate Connolly

Shadow Weaver by MarcyKate Connolly is the first book in the Shadow Weaver duology. Emmeline is a Shadow Weaver. Since her birth, she has been able to control shadows. Emmeline’s shadow Dar, her only friend, is the only one to accept Emmeline. Even her parents do not accept her magic, so much in fact that her parents want to send her away. 

The first thing I want to say about this book is that I love this cover. It truly conveys the story with just a glance. The next thing I want to say is this was an excellent story. The characters are well fleshed out, the author’s imagination is outstanding, and the story is exceptionally well written. I cannot wait for the next book!

I received this book from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

My Review of The Blood Queen

Review:

The Blood Queen (Deathsworn Arc, #3) - Martyn Stanley

The Blood Queen by Martyn Stanley is the third installment in the Deathsworn Arc series. Wizard Saul Karza and his comrades have made it back to the Empress, but she is not as Saul remembers. 

This book gave a bit more insight into some of the mysteries surrounding the female elf and the wizard, but I think the female character gets too much attention from the author. I would like to know more about the dark elf and the dwarf. I can see the author’s writing has matured since the first book, and the editing is getting much better.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
