HAPPY WEDNESDAY EVERYONE

  Happy Wednesday all . Today is zombie Wednesday but these zombies have a twist . Let me introduce you all to EMMA'S ROSE the cave by Eric A Shelman


                         BOOK BLURB


      
IN AN ANCIENT CAVE IN ROMANIA . . .

Wealthy philanthropist Arthur Wells, in need of a family getaway with his wife, Joan, and his daughter, Emma, arranges a trip to Romania. His intention is to explore an ancient cave system he read about, located in Constanta, on the Black Sea coast.

The name of the cave, unearthed in 1986, is Pestera Movile. It has been sealed from the light of day for over five-and-a-half million years, preserved beneath more than 20 meters of clay. Yet, despite the toxic environment and the lack of light and oxygen within, life forms thrive - all of them blind and colorless. Many are carnivorous.

Most are found nowhere else on Earth.

In this harsh, chemosynthetic environment, Arthur stumbles across something he hopes will advance medical science. Unbeknownst to his guide, he takes a sample of the strange flower.

Arthur Wells has no way of knowing what Emma's Rose is about to unleash upon the world.

                           MY REVIEW 
        
     Ok I have read almost all of Eric's books and was excited to read his new zombie book . Emma's Rose . I was blown away with the book started out . In a cave in Romania where it has been hidden from the world . With its toxic ecosystem not many people have ventured down there . While on a holiday Arthur and his family decide to head to Constanta on the black sea coast .  After venturing down into the cave he is in awe of the life that is surviving down there . Most of the specimens have never seen the light of day . When stumbles into part of the cave that have never been opened before . He finds a beautiful flower which he decides to take home, hoping that it will bring the cure to cancer or some other deadly disease. But what he inadvertently done is, well not going to tell you, you have to read the book .
      In this series , just like all his series , you will find characters that are relatable to you and you will start to really care for them . In this book it is Arthur , this man was so full of himself at the start of the book . He came off as kind of arrogant and he thought he could do anything . But as his world is falling apart around and his family is dying . You see a change in him you see him become a more humbled man that wants to stop what ever is happening in the end of the world . You also see him toughen up as he is humbled .  The other two relatable characters are Ramona and Harvey . April is another character you will like . She gets tougher and stronger as the story goes on . But the main character the rose is one sinister flower. Trust me after reading this book I am going to look at roses differently from now on .
      This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time . The author has built a different type of zombie that really works and also the new delivery system of the virus makes you never want to get flowers again . Just trust me on this one people .
The book is character driven you will cheer for them and you will laugh with them . Most definitely you will cry for them and with them . I read this book in one sitting, well into the night . I just couldn't put it down , it kept calling me back just to read a couple more pages and 3 chapters later I was like wow .  I so can't wait to find out what happens with these characters . So when is book two coming out , can't be soon enough for this girl . So if you want a good start to a hopefully great new series . Check out EMMA'S ROSE the Cave by Eric A Shelman . I promise you , you will not be disappointed and you will be begging Eric for the second book .

                         MY REVIEW 

    This is the first book in a brand series from Jessica Aspen . What would you do if you move to a new place and start a new job . Then finding out the man you want as your mate isn't the one you really want . Its his twin brother that gets Serena's blood a boiling and her wolf to sit up and howl repeatedly. Well that's what happens to Serena as she heads to Colorado for her new job as a dream walker . Her boss really hates her and she has a stalker on top of trying to figure out who she should be with.
   The characters in this book are so developed . Serena is a dream walker.  Her wolf comes out in dreams and she doesn't exactly transform into a wolf .  She is a very strong woman who really knows what she wants . But she also has some insecurities about her wolf and will anyone really want her and understand her . Enter Sam and Gabe , wolf shifter twins and enforcers for the pack . Serana shared a passionate kiss with Sam. Sam oozes sexiness and is all alpha man . He is gruff and oh so sexy . The man she though she wanted . Enter Gabe the splitting image of Sam and way so sexy but also sensitive and wants Serena . They all are such great characters with strengths and weakness that will make you want to cry and laugh .
     I have read all of Jessica's books and I sat down and devoured this book in one sitting . The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride of emotions . I laughed and cried and was on the edge of my seat a few times .  This book has it all , a mystery , romance and plenty of action to keep you turning pages well into the night . I can't wait for the next book in the series . This is a series that will keep you up all night and then dreaming of your wolf shifter . So if you are a fan of paranormal romance with an adventure mixed in . Check out this new series and check out WOLF ENFORCER. Add this book to your summer reading list NOW  you will not be disappointed

WELCOME TO A RAINY WEDNESDAY

 Welcome to a wet and rainy Wednesday .  Its a great day to grab a book and snuggle down and read the day away .  Today we are going to review a book I couldn't put down . THE DEVIL'S PRAYER by Luke Gracias


                         BOOK BLURB 

 
A nun commits suicide in front of thousands in Spain. In Australia, Siobhan Russo recognises that nun as her mother, Denise Russo, who disappeared six years ago.

In search of answers, Siobhan travels to the isolated convent where her mother once lived. Here she discovers Denise’s final confession, a book that details a heinous betrayal that left her crippled and mute, and Denise’s subsequent deal with the Devil to take revenge. In the desperate bargain Denise made with the Prince of Darkness, she wagered Siobhan’s soul.

As Siobhan discovers the fate of her soul, she learns that hidden within the pages of her mother’s confession is part of The Devil’s Prayer, an ancient text with the power to unleash apocalyptic horrors.

And now her mother’s enemies know Siobhan has it.

Can Siobhan escape an order of extremist monks determined to get the Prayer back? Can she save the world from its own destruction?

                             MY REVIEW 
  
     I started this book before bed one night and well lets just say it was a late night by the time I put the book down. The author took me on such a roller coaster ride that was adrenaline based and had me on the edge of my seat for most of the night . The story line alone had me hooked . A young woman Siobhan is trying to figure out what happened to her mother . After seeing a nun who looked like her mother hang herself . That is the first piece of the puzzle that Siobhan must solve to in the mystery of why her mother disappeared 6 years prior .  The pat that Siobhan travels down is dark and scary, armed with only the confession of her mother and the mysterious prayer hidden within the words on the paper . Siobhan is in grave danger and she must outsmart her mother's enemies and save the world from ultimate destruction . 
    The characters are very well written and complex. Siobhan is a fighter and doesn't stop until she has all the answers she needs .  She finds more about her history as she reads her mother's confession . The monks are well lets just say evil . They want the confession back and will do any thing it takes to get it back . The characters will have you cheering for them in Siobhan's case and wanting to kill them yourselves as in the monks case . 
    The author does such a great job mixing the historical part of the story and what is happening in the real life of Siobhan .  The book takes off like a bat out of hell and doesn't stop the roller coaster ride . The author takes us on a journey of epic proportions . The twists and turns are every where. You think you have it figured out and bam the author takes you in a totally different  direction .  The author did a great deal of research to keep this book as accurate as it is. The mixture of the thirteenth history and the real up to date time. The way the author describes everything has you actually seeing the monasteries in your mind as you read The book is part the historian . part the Da Vinci Code and The Omen all rolled into one great read . So if you like a great book that will keep you reading all night long and take you away to a place that will have you thinking all night long . Check out THE DEVIL'S PRAYER  you will not be disappointed .
