is GEORGE'S TERM A ZOMBIE NOVEL. by Catt Dahman
In a world filled with zombies, survivors find that the living can be far more inhumane and cruel than anything they have ever imagined, as raiders scavenge for supplies and lawlessness and hatred are the norm. Both outlaws and zombies crave meat. In this time of hopelessness and horror, a bullet to the brain may be the kindest action.
George, an older, retired police officer, sets his own terms: fight and survive or go the way you want, but don’t let the zombies win. He explains that everyone is responsible for his own fate, and if that means going out on unpopular terms, then so be it. Len, a retired Marine; a quiet cowboy, Kim; a hot-tempered Hispanic woman, Julia; and a compassionate young woman, Beth all begin their terrorizing journey, not only to survive, but also to establish a new society, find love and joy in a barren, bloody landscape, and to face gathering enemies.
The first of the compelling series, George’s Terms, introduces a memorable cast of characters and a terrifying vision of a world, burned to rubble and filled with flesh-eating adversaries. As each person faces inner fears and new roles, he finds law and morality must be redefined. Zombies are used as the vehicle, but the story is all about what humans will do to survive when the odds are stacked against them; luckily, for the survivors, George has given them the terms that may keep humans from becoming extinct.

They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.
At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease.
But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined…

When forensic psychiatrist Abigail Lee meets a baby-killing mother who has been declared criminally insane and acquitted, she discovers something lurking beneath the surface. Something far deeper and more insidious than mere psychopathy. But can she come to terms with her own struggle with science and faith in time to confront it?
When I was looking for books to read for my countdown. I came across this book and it was a freebie. So I thought what the hell. This is a good read. It sucks you in from the very beginning. We have a spunky forensic psychiatrist, a woman up for murder and a priest and no this isn't the beginning of a bad joke
This is a fast read, and your heart will pound just a little harder as you read. It has the elements of a good horror story. Things that go bump in the night and if you think of heaven and hell . Possession of a person. This book will make you think about that.
The only thing I wish is the story could be a bit longer. Delve into the characters a little more and really delve into the good versus evil aspect of the book. The author does do a good job starting to create the characters . They just need to be plumped up a little
Over all this is a good read for Halloween if you like a book that will make you think and like the good versus evil aspect instead of a ghost story check it out . There is also a bonus book with the story

Today we are having a special treat for you . I recently got to interview Lori Meckley about her books . And Thor might even make an appearance
Obsession, Possession, Confession and Eternity are the titles.
But if I must pick on I'd say JR Ward, she lays out a book that just is huge in size but so deep a read you fall into readers space in your head. The story never stops in your mind. I buy her for pure pleasure.

In his second book, “Musings of a Modern Romantic”, Michael Peter Smith shares his latest poetry, once again taking you into the mind of a man who is a hopelessly incurable romantic. His goal as a poet is to illicit a response or bring out feelings from within that will touch your heart and move your soul. He still believes in love, and giving you the male perspective in prose. From love and lust to heartache and pain, he shares even more depth than he did in the first book.

You all know you have those words that you want to say but you just can't bring youself to say them until it is too late. I know I have had them.
There are poems in the book that will rip at your heart and make you want to cry as you read them . They are honest and raw. The author does a great job in conveying his feelings all of them . He has given himself in this book

Sitting on the beach watching the calm water always seemed to help to ease the panic. The waves were gently lapping against the driftwood on the beach. The sound of the seagulls was soothing. The smell of the salty ocean air was comforting. So why couldn’t she just relax? Today, it did not seem to be working.
Last night the dreams had kept her awake through most of the night. If only she knew what they meant. She was so tired of them. They had plagued her for her entire life, as long as she could remember anyhow. Today was a day filled with questions, and she just wanted answers. All her life she had worked at blocking memories.
This is the second book in the series I have read , This one is a different book for me.
Lily is suffering from nightmares and gaps in her memory, She just wants to put them all behind her and figure out why she had been having these dreams her whole life. She sets out to find out what happened to make her have these dreams and how to cure them . But will she be strong enough to find out what has happened to her.
I adored this story. The author writes it in the third person but it doesn't deter from the story line at all. It had a warmth and a life that normally don't come through when an author writes in the 3rd person. Sandra paints a beautiful picture of quaint town of Seaside and then the big mansion where Lily spend most of her time trying to figure out her past. Where she met some great friends
The author takes us through a lot of emotions in this book, you laugh and cry and laugh some more. When things start to come apart at the end of the book and all the secrets and lies are revealed . I will admit I did shed a tear or two. With all the revelations that go on in the book trust me ladies you will be on the edge of your seat and flipping pages all night long. You will love all the characters that Lily meets along the way
The book had great flow and like I said you will laugh and cry . You will be riveted to the pages. So can't wait till the next book in the trilogy. So ladies if you want a good read that will make you feel happy check it out
GOOD READS LINK

For centuries the gods have waited—for the betrayal that will release them, for the traitors who will defend them, for the warrior who will challenge them. Now at long last the gate between the human and spirit worlds is open, and with it, an army of vengeful demons poised to swarm the earth. Only the Curse Keepers, Ellie Lancaster and Collin Dailey, can stop it…if they can break free from a tangled web of treachery, jealousy, and lies.
Torn between two men—her heart belongs to David, yet her soul is bound to Collin’s—Ellie no longer knows who she can trust. Demons slipping through the gate are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake, each death a chilling reminder of the power of the ancient spirits to bring humanity to its knees. Faced with an unimaginable future, Ellie realizes the time has come to turn her back on prophecy and choose her own destiny—even if it means defying the gods themselves.
In the thrilling conclusion to the Curse Keepers trilogy, humanity faces its final battle for survival!
OMG I have been waiting patiently, ok not so patiently. Yes I have stalked Denise's author page on Facebook. When she said that she was promoting the book . It was a long long wait. I preordered and all I had to do was wait. I am so glad that I did.
This says it is the conclusion but I am so not hoping so. I have come to love Ellie Collin and the rest of the characters. Ellie is torn between Collin and the man she loves David. They both are there to love her and help her. Denise has taken Ellie from a naïve young lady to a kick ass heroine, she has grown up so much. Collin is still cocky but is coming to realize that Ellie might just be right about a lot of things. And honestly who would not love a man with a British accent as David has. The poor guy does get the shit beat out of him a few times. But he survives and so does his love for Ellie
We meet new gods and demons in this book. We meet the Raven Mockers and we hear about Kalona their god. Which come from Cherokee lore. Along with all the regular gods and demons that show up just to mess with Ellie. She is getting aggravated by them all by the way. Will they survive the showdown or will humanity be destroyed
Denise takes us on a fun filled adventure in this book. We found out so much more the curse and what really happened to Ellie and her mom so long ago. Friends end up getting new powers to help her our and some one she loves becomes an essential member of the team.
This is a fast past read. It was one of those books I just couldn't put down once I started. I read well into the night and finished in the morning . Boy I needed tea after this book.
I am hoping and praying that there is another book, I will need another fix of Collin and Ellie soon.
So if you want a great series to read THE CURSE KEEPERS

Good day everyone, hope your hump day is going well . Today Ashleigh is reviewing MR X by Clarissa Wild
USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Clarissa Wild brings you Mr. X, a dark Romance thriller, which is a stand alone without cliffhanger.
*Author Note: This is not your average romance story. Some people will kill for love.*
He’s come to kill me.
I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In my darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.
Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.
I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X; the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?
If you like dark, I mean very dark romance then pick this up and read it
right now. If bad people who do worse things are not for you then just pass
on by to the next book.
Personally I love a dark read and this ticked all my boxes and then some.
Mr X is hideous inside and out, he is ugly, vengeful and oozes hate and
horror. He is a professional killer.
He is here to kill her... Jay, his little bird. But she is going to fight
for her life with her life.
Complex characters a gripping story, hot sex and just enough love to cut
through all the violence left me hoping like crazy that this story goes on.
Mr X earned five stars from me. But I love dark twisted bad characters.
