Nightmares

They follow you

Like bats in the night

You can’t outrun them

You can never hide

They’ll be there waiting

Always waiting

For you to fall asleep

For your mind to finally be theirs

You can fight it all you want

Force your eyes to never close

Soon you’ll give in

And they’ll be there

They’ll play with you

Showing what you never want to see

Saying what you never want to hear

Until you beg for it to stop

Pleading for it all to be over

But your mind does not listen

Your eyes do not open

They cannot hear your cries

And you’re forced to see the images

So gruesome and bizarre

Your feet try to carry you away

Try taking you from the nightmares

But they follow you

They’ll always follow you.

Wayward Pines

I recently began watching this series on TV. I had no idea it was based off of a book until after the first episode. This show has me hooked and confused and I LOVE IT! After the second episode, I got on Amazon and ordered the trilogy to get ahead of the game. Of course, I am a slow reader, but I intend on posting reviews of these books just like I do with every other book I read.

Book Review: The Plantation

Written by Stella Samiotou Fitzsimons

This is the first book in The Plantation series and it was a good one. I was hooked right off the bat and found it hard to put my kindle down at times. It starts out a bit slow, but once it picks up the pace it’s great. This was a quick read and I’d recommend it to anyone into the young adult, action/adventure, dystopian types of books.

It takes place in the future after an alien race takes over the planet. They enslave the human race (naturally) and put the teenagers in these prison camps called the Plantations. A few of the kids escape and join together in hopes of rising up against the aliens and win back the planet. They call themselves the Saviors.

Freya is the main character in this book and she believes that she has no special abilities to add to the Saviors. She isn’t as strong as the others but she isn’t one to stand down when there’s a fight coming along. She narrarates this story, telling all about the plantations and the family she was forced to leave behind. Her best friend, Finn, sticks by her side, telling her that one day they’ll be able to show their worth and fight against the aliens, hoping to make a difference. All fo the Saviors want more to join them and start a revolution to send the aliens back to the hell they came from.

Of course this book wouldn’t be as interesting if something bad didn’t happen to the heroes. They get forced from their camp and cornered down by the aliens. And this is where I must stop or else I will spoil the entire thing. I am most definitely not one to ruin a book by doing that.

So, I’ll leave you with a link to download your very own copy of The Plantation and enjoy it just as much as I have.

Book Review: Dead Girl

By: Mark Boss

This one got me hooked from the first page. It is sort of on the apocalyptic end of the fiction world. It starts out in our world: a warm, sunny, beautiful place where the grass is green and the flowers are bright. The main character, Dahlia, slips into a coma and wakes up in the Shadow world where her mind had sent her. This place is filled with disgusting monsters and horrifying creatures. Cannibals run around trying to kill everyone and everything. The whole place is run by this witch, or the Queen as she prefers to be called.

In order for Dahlia to get out of the Shadow World, she must conquer her monster. By her monster, I literally mean it is hers. She was sent into a coma because she has a brain tumor and the monster signifies that tumor, therefore she has to defeat it. In the process, she teams up with a group of other kids who are in a position similar to her own. They battle the Queen’s minions in order to survive and go through hell and back just to have a few more seconds of life in the Shadow World.

I won’t give away too much, but it has an open ending, meaning there is a sequel to this book. One which I am planning to purchase and read. I enjoyed this one, gave it 4 stars on Amazon. There were a few grammatical errors and some of the sentence structures didn’t read well-in my opinion. All in all, this was a good read and I’d recommend it to those who enjoy young adult-action/adventure-apocalyptic type fiction.

Nightmares

Here’s another of my past favorites that I’ve written. Just wanted to share again!

They follow you
Like bats in the night
You can’t outrun them
You can never hide
They’ll be there waiting
Always waiting
For you to fall asleep
For your mind to finally be theirs
You can fight it all you want
Force your eyes to never close
Soon you’ll give in
And they’ll be there
They’ll play with you
Showing what you never want to see
Saying what you never want to hear
Until you beg for it to stop
Pleading for it all to be over
But your mind does not listen
Your eyes do not open
They cannot hear your cries
And you’re forced to see the images
So gruesome and bizarre
Your feet try to carry you away
Try taking you from the nightmares
But they follow you
They’ll always follow you.

Release of The Main Event: Book 3 of The Human Race

The day has finally come! The third and final book in The Human Race trilogy is out for purchase on Kindle as well as in print.

Bridget’s world is completely shattered. With Ryder gone, she no longer has anything to live for. Trevor has the cure now and with it he plans to rule the world. There is nothing she can do to stop him and the sadness is forcing her to be weak.

Depression is looming inside of her, taking over the very part of her that wants to survive. She finds herself wanting death as her mind goes over every painful memory of the great life she once had. The pain from those memories becomes too much and she wills herself to forget it all.

By forgetting her life, she lets loose the monster that dwells in her unbeating heart. It knows nothing of her past and only plans for the future it needs to survive through.

Anyway, for an update, I believe the release date for this third and final book in The Human Race trilogy will be next Friday, March 27th. I’m a little sad to see that it has come to an end after three long years of writing this series, but at the same time I’m happy to start working on other projects.

In the meantime, if you haven’t checked out any of my books, feel free to do so. I love getting reviews and any feedback from fellow authors and readers. My amazon page is listed below so you can check out my work.

The Main Event: Book 3 of The Human Race

Since I am currently in the process of formatting and uploading the third installment of my zombie/vampire trilogy, The Main Event, I thought it was about time I show off the description that will be seen on the back cover of the book. I am pretty excited and thrilled with how this one came to an end and at the same time I am a bit sad to see this creation of mine come to an end. However, here is the description. I hope you find it enjoyable.

Bridget’s world is completely shattered. With Ryder gone, she no longer has anything to live for. Trevor has the cure now and with it he plans to rule the world. There is nothing she can do to stop him and the sadness is forcing her to be weak.

Depression is looming inside of her, taking over the very part of her that wants to survive. She finds herself wanting death as her mind goes over every painful memory of the great life she once had. The pain from those memories becomes too much and she wills herself to forget it all.

By forgetting her life, she lets loose the monster that dwells in her unbeating heart. It knows nothing of her past and only plans for the future it needs to survive through.

Book Review: The Conviction: Enacting Vigilante Justice

Written by John Mathews

Here is another great read by this amazing author. This is a suspenseful novella about the corruption that hides in the midst of our judicial system. You’ll follow four main characters; Nancy, John, Jeffrey, and Kevin as they are trapped inside an abandoned warehouse for what they thought was nothing more than a simple investment opportunity. All of them are lured there without knowledge of who all will be attending the meeting. All four of them know each other because Nancy was the prosecuting attorney for a case Jeffrey and Kevin were involved in where John was the defense attorney for an innocent man that was wrongfully accused.

The person that brought them to the warehouse wants them to pay for wronging the innocent man who is forced to serve a life sentence in prison. He demands that they do certain tasks (I will not give them away, naturally) and if they do not comply, then something horrible will happen to them. They are locked in the warehouse without cell phone service or any way of getting contact with the outside world at all.

This one is suspenseful and will keep you guessing to the very end. I am more than looking forward to reading anything else this new author writes in the future. You can check out this one by clicking the link below!

Book Review: A Game of Greed and Deception

By John Mathews

This book kept me hooked right from the very beginning. A real page turner that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat through the entire thing. It’s mysterious, suspensful, dramatic, and did I mention gripping?

The book starts off with what you think is going to be a family getaway in a remote Colorado cabin resort with the main character, Stephen, his young wife, Tammy, and his daughter, Maria, setting off to the mountains during a very snowy blizzard up a mountain where no one can get to them very easily. They have a lovely dinner and everything seems like it’s going to be a great trip, until Tammy has her “beloved” husband fetch her a pack of cigarettes only to have him never return. Of course, she plays the worried wife, calls the cops after his disappearance, and acts all sorts of frantic in front of Maria. But, you learn certain things about this woman that will have you second guessing her every movement and motive.

It’s very hard to not give too much away about this one. If I say too much, I will ruin the entire thing. It really kept me guessing until the very end and I couldn’t put it down until I knew exactly what was going on. You’ll think one thing, then get proved wrong over and over and over again and I loved it! I recommend this to anyone with a taste for the mysterious and the suspense genres. You can check it out at the link below and as always, happy reading!
