Review — Ghostland by Jory Strong

Ghostland is a dynamic and riveting tale set in post-apocalyptic earth. From the first page I was swept away with the story. The heroine’s strength is subtle, but undeniable. The hero, everything you’d want a hero to be…and then some! Unforeseen twists in the plot kept me guessing until the very last page. Books like Ghostland are hard for me to read. Why? Because Jory Strong’s talent quickly ensnared me in the world she created, because I stayed up until the early morning hours reading under the covers, because I had an uncontrollable urge to flip to the last ten pages so I could see how the story ended; and when it finally did end, I was saddened because it was over. So, if you enjoy losing yourself in an exceptionally well-written story with vivid world-building and outstanding characters, Ghostland will live up to all your expectations.

Focused. Strong. True.

Review — Home by Calisa Rhose

I thoroughly enjoyed HOME. Calisa Rhose does an excellent job of drawing the reader into the atmosphere of small town life as a veteran returns from the Vietnam War and tries to piece his life back together. Through Calisa’s detailed expression, I was able to experience the isolation Sam felt as he tried to cope with post traumatic stress and survivor’s guilt. The heroine, Poppy, was a spunky, fire-in-her-belly gal that I loved from the beginning and whose unconditional love would heal Sam’s wounded heart. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Calisa Rhose.

Focused. Strong. True.

Review — Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis


If asked, I’m not going to admit that I spent the entire day at work glued to my iPhone because I could not stop reading this book! Persephone is a fresh and interesting interpretation of Greek mythology. The story moves at a brisk pace, and the characters are distinct and alive with emotion. I immediately sympathized with the heroine and enjoyed the romantic tension between her and Hades. Kaitlin Bevis’ attention to detail created a vivid picture in my mind so I could disappear within the pages. My only complaint is that the book ended and I have to wait for the next. If you are looking for a young adult read with unexpected twists and turns in the journey these characters must traverse, Persephone will not disappoint.

Focused. Strong. True.
