Review: One Second After by William R. Forstchen

Home > Review > One Second After by William R. Forstchen Title: One Second After Author: William R. Forstchen Series: Stand Alone Genre: Adult, Apocalyptic, Political Author Links: Web  Purchase Online Rating: PJ’s QUICKIE POV: Written in a “Good Old Boy” style, the novel, ‘One Second After’ might not be everyone’s **Cup Of Tea** – but taken in stride, this novel was quite bold and had my brain churning about “what if” scenarios. ‘One Second After’ scared me, grossed me out and had me crying like a baby at some points. That, is- what I consider a good novel. I listened to the audio book, so the editing style and sentence structure that is a big complaint about this book was not evident, so I recommend going that route. Not to mention, the narrator’s voice lends to that “Good Old Boy” style which makes things even more poignant. If you are a fan of post-apocalyptic fiction, along with survival stories, this my friends, might be the book for you. REVIEW: ‘One Second After’ covers the occurrence of an EMP strike over the continental Unites States and the after-math of the US being suddenly plunged into technology circa the 19th century. The way our country has progressed technology is a demon in disguise according to ‘One Second After’ because of our reliance on it. Certain groups rave about our reliance...

Review: Day by Day Armageddon by JL Bourne, Zombies!

Home > Review > Day by Day Armageddon by JL Bourne Title: Day by Day Armageddon Author: JL Bourne Series: Day by Day Armageddon Genre: Adult, Horror, Zombies Author Links: Web Twitter Purchase Online Rating: PJ’s QUICKIE POV: Don’t get your zombies all mushed up with romance or emotional trauma — get it straight up, with a side of ‘in your face’ with the novel ‘Day By Day Armageddon’ by JL Bourne. I did this one in audio book form, narration by Jay Snyder and I was not disappointed. It is a told from the perspective of a military man’s diary with no frills, just zombie attacks, the steps they took to evade and what goes down along the way. I really enjoyed this piece and its straight forward commentary was different and spiced up my zombie obsession a notch. This is one you don’t want to miss if you are deep in the zombie trenches like I am! It is scare you silly good all the while dropping some knowledge on how to bug in or bug out depending on your zombie situation. REVIEW: It was the narrator’s New Year’s Resolution to start keeping a journal while on leave in Arkansas. When returning to San Antonio he finds out something terrible is occurring in China and that our government has deployed troops to aide in the situation. The...

Review: Devilishly Hot by Kathy Love

Home > Review > Devilishly Hot by Kathy Love Comedic Paranormal Romance Review, Devilishly Hot by Kathy Love Title: Devilishly Hot Genre: Romance, Adult, Paranormal Romance Author Links: Web  Purchase Online Rating: PJ’s QUICKIE POV: I’m all for light hearted chick lit, but somewhere ‘Devilishly Hot’ just lost it for me. It was as if the author read ‘Devil Wears Prada’ and decided to make a real paranormal romance out of it, with an added bonus of quirky chick-lit flavoring. The first few chapters actually drew me in, but the moment the romantic interplay started I lost all interest. The romance just wasn’t there. REVIEW: ‘Devilishly Hot’ is the story of back-water, country girl, Annie Lou Riddle who had a dream to break into the fashion industry. What she ended up doing was selling her soul to a demon and basically becoming a slave at the fashion magazine HOT!. Her demon/boss/slave owner is Finola White and her mistreatment of employees (murder) has drawn the attention of super hot NYPD detective Nick Rossi, who has an instant hard, *cough* I mean attraction for Annie Lou. But, with Annie’s soul caught up with Finola and Nick’s determination to find out the truth – this relationship seems doomed from the start. I enjoyed the first half of this book – but it seemed as I got into the romantic interplay I lost...

Review: A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies

Home > Review > A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies Title: A Beautiful Dark Author: Jocelyn Davies Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Fantasy Series: A Beautiful Dark #1 Author Links: Web Twitter Purchase Online Rating: PJ’s QUICKIE POV: Skeptical. I was skeptical going into this book. I think the synopsis writer didn’t do this book justice. Basically it sounded like an over blown love triangle story with an angel mythos. My copy literally said fans of ‘Hush, Hush’ and ‘Fallen’ should enjoy. I just figured this was just another love triangle YA that substitute angels for vampires, or werewolves or whatever else is the “thing” at the present moment. THUS proving that you can’t judge a book by a synopsis and never can you know if you are going to like a book before you even read it, because frankly I didn’t think I would like this book. Thank you Ms. Davies for proving me wrong. ‘A Beautiful Dark’ was a refreshingly new take on the old ideas. I didn’t have a problem with this love triangle or the angel mythology because of the character depth, formation and the interesting setting. REVIEW: Skye has just turned seventeen and on the night of her birthday she meets two mysterious new additions to her small town that end up getting in a fist fight, she even thinks it might be about her...

Kensington put together four great examples of this type of writing in ‘The Real Werewives of Vampire County.’ With heavy hitters like Alexandra Ivy’s ‘Where Darkness Lives’ you won’t be disappointed with this anthology. The only author I had read before was Ivy and now I have three new authors to “catch up with.” ‘Where Darkness Lives’ by Alexandra Ivy A tiny addition to her ‘Guardians of Eternity’ series, Ivy introduces us to Sophia, pure blood were and known as the ‘bitch of all bitches’, mother of the four were sisters in her series. Attempts on her life have forced her to hire a bodyguard, she goes outside of her family because she wants to have control.

Sophia is constantly being referred to...
