The Vampire 

by Dana Skvarek II

 

 

 

 

Book Summary:

A young man recounts the story of his hunt for a creature whose reign of terror on a small New England town held more mystery than he anticipated.

 

My Review: 

This story is compelling.  It’s only 19 pages but it draws you in and keeps you there.

The young man has a lot of tricks up his sleeves and he has become pretty good at the slight of hand, but this time there is a difference. He walks into a town tormented by a “Vampire” a town who needs his help, but someone in this town knows more then they are saying.

The writing was excellent.  The story was well thought out.  It gets right to the point like any short story should and makes you gasp.

The Beast Inside

by Cazadara

About the Author:

Hey everybody! I am a book obsessed, tree hugging, music loving tomboy.

I hike a ton and am currently climbing the 46 Adirondack high peaks, I have 28 done! I go on a camping/canoe trip every summer and love to go in the woods whenever possible, so most days in the summer you can find me in the woods behind my house. I also go to Crossfit, ski, and horseback ride, so yeah.

I also love to draw and paint but I am a total amateur, I do it all the time but they totally suck, but hey, it’s still really fun!

I love almost all books, excluding like serious hardcore horror, I like zombie and action but I can’t do the murderer, psycho killer type, sorry. So please recommend me books, I’m always on the hunt for a good read (:

I just started writing publicly and if you want to check it out and give me advice that would be wonderful!

Book Summary:

We all feel that instinct inside us take hold, that primal urge to run to the arms of the forest, to collapse into the invigorating waters of a woods seemingly known only as myth.

But when the world takes a turn for the worst can you stand up and fight or will you slink back and cower in fear?

Tony and Ari have been abducted by people claiming that a war is coming, a war of unimaginable size. And they are the only answer.

Without them humans race will die, the world will die.

They don’t want this, not this life, not this mission, but it’s too late, they are already changed, there’s no going back.

But can these people be trusted? These abductors, scientists, and assassins?

Is the world really ending?

Can it really be stopped?

Obsession In Death by J.D. Robb

Obsession In Death by J.D. Robb

 

obsession in deathBook Description:  Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and gotten a lot of media. She—and her billionaire husband—are getting accustomed to being objects of attention, of gossip, of speculation.

But now Eve has become the object of one person’s obsession. Someone who finds her extraordinary, and thinks about her every hour of every day. Who believes the two of them have a special relationship. Who would kill for her—again and again…

With a murderer reading meanings into her every move, handling this case will be a delicate—and dangerous—psychological dance. And Eve knows that underneath the worship and admiration, a terrible threat lies in wait. Because the beautiful lieutenant is not at all grateful for these bloody offerings from her “true and loyal friend.” And in time, idols always fall…

 

My Review: This book was exciting from start to finish. Was it a little predictable? Sure and I didn’t care. J.D. Robb isn’t going to kill off her main characters. We all know that isn’t going to happen even if this one came really close.

I loved this book. It is probably in my top five favorites of the series. I personally think that Nora Roberts talents are wasted on romance novels. She should be writing more books like these. I would definitely read straight up thrillers from her that didn’t contain her vast network of familiar characters. The characters that we have come to know and love.

As the book description above tells us; this book is about someone stalking Eve Dallas. (It was bound to happen sooner or later right?) What is really creepy is that some of the story is told about the stalker and we don’t get any clues to who this person may be. We don’t even get to know gender until Eve works it out.  J.D. Robb managed to tell us a great deal about the stalker without telling us anything at all. It made me feel like I knew the character and what the character was capable of when it came time to unveil said character. J.D. Robb did a delicate dance and the result was fantastic.

I honestly have no idea if we’ve met the stalker before. This is book forty and I simply don’t remember all of them in that kind of detail. I have always imagined Nora Roberts with a gigantic spread sheet. Something like what Santa would use for Christmas. That’s how I always imagined that she keeps the characters straight because the characters are what drive these stories.

Unlike Festive which was about former cases, Obsession is a walk down memory lane where we realize exactly how many people Eve and Roarke have come into contact with. How many they have helped or have helped them. Characters who have become part of their family. In this story family becomes the people who Eve needs to protect.

With all of that said. I think you could read this one even if you hadn’t read the others. There are reminders given to help us remember who some of these characters are. I think they would serve to explain who a character is enough to get someone through the story. So don’t let the fact that this is number forty put you off even if you’ve missed the last twenty books. Everything is turned up in this one. All emotions are heightened in this one and the end is something that you have to read and experience for yourself to fully appreciate.
