The bonds of family go well beyond blood.

But can those bonds hold when the blood itself carries a devastating secret?

Fenlee's opal necklace had always radiated a certain warmth since her mother's death. But now, at sixteen, her world begins to unravel as the stone sparks to life, revealing itself to be an otherworldly artifact of untold power.

Between her mechatronics studies at the academy and scavenging expeditions beneath the sprawling city of New Cascadia, Fenlee and her adopted brother, Elliot, try to decipher the mysteries of her necklace and its link to events in Fenlee's past.

But they're not alone in their search.

Strange undercity dwellers offer cryptic warnings, drones track their movements, and deadly corporate agents lurk in the shadows. When tragedy rips Fenlee's family apart, she must learn to use the artifact's power to save those who are deeply precious to her. But nothing can prepare her for the dark truths that she will uncover on that journey…

“Lee,” Elliot mumbled. “I'm not who you think I am.”

CHILD OF ETHERCLAW by Matty Roberts Book Tour Giveaway


My Review: 

Child of Etherclaw starts off the first book from the Etherclaw series by Matty Roberts. It is, also, my experience in reading anything by this author. Even though, I am not a huge fan of sci fi tales, I was still intrigued with the cover and had to open it up to find out what it was all about. I thought it was a really good read. I enjoyed being taken to another world for a while and escape everyday life for a few hours. I loved the characters of Fenlee and Elliot. The author does a great world does a great job describing the fictional settings that made me feel as though I was right there taking the same journey. The book was full of adventure, danger, mystery and suspense. It was not one that I could easily guess as to what was going to happen next and had to keep reading until the end.

Child of Etherclaw will be getting four stars from me. I know readers and fans of young adult, fantasy, dystopian and science fiction will want to snatch this one up. I believe they will not be disappointed. I will be on the lookout for the release of the next installment from the Etherclaw series to see where Matty Roberts’ imagination will take their readers to next. This one is definitely worth a read. 

I received a paperback copy of Child of Etherclaw from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Book, Chapter, and Vows by Chautona Havig

About the Book

Book: Book, Chapter, & Vows

Author: Chautona Havig

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: July 26, 2022

Falling in love with Benjamin wasn’t in the plan, but Mallory finds she’s all but lost her head and her heart after two and a half years of banter, memories, and now shared books.

But when her ex-fiance (does it count if it was just for a few hours?) shows up right in the middle of a writing project with Benjamin, the guy manages to ruin her happiness… again.

Benjamin has been keeping one tiny part of him back from Mallory–just the one thing that’ll repel her for good.
So when the ex-boyfriend-slash-fiance shows up, and things look serious again, he takes a giant step back and prays he can keep his heart intact in the process.

They’re clearly meant for each other. God obviously has a plan. So what’s it going to take for Mallory and Benjamin to work things out and get those vows made?

This Breakers Head novel is Chautona Havig’s final book in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

It Happened AGAIN!

I remember the first book I had trouble finishing. Beneath the Cloak. It was the last book of the Wynnewood series, and I was dying to reveal the big secret that had been a big part of the story line. I spent hours writing very few words. Someone asked if I had writer’s block, but I didn’t. I knew every word I wanted to put on that page, but I kept procrastinating.

For weeks. We’re talking long, agonizing weeks.

Finally, I realized a significant part of why I hadn’t finished was because I didn’t want to. I didn’t want the series to end. Say goodbye to beloved characters? Agony, okay? I wanted to spend the rest of my life in Wynnewood seeing what happened with all the characters and all the things that would happen.

I just wanted to write a bunch of other books, too. What can I say? It’s a thing.

So, as I dove into writing the book I’ve been dying to write since I penned the opening scene of Christmas on Breakers Point, you’d think I’d have been prepared for the inevitable. I mean, it’s happened with several other series since that first time, so… yeah. All ready to combat the problem, right? Not hardly.

To be fair, I was also coming off being very sick, my mother being even sicker, so being crazy behind on everything. I mean, that had a lot to do with it taking so long to get going on it. But once I did, I’d type like crazy and then ignore it for a day or two before the story demanded more telling.

Then, just as I neared the big scene of Book, Chapter, & Vows… I went nuts on doing everything but finishing that book. No joke. I did. Sigh. Again, you think I’d learn.

After much soul searching and even more wailing at God about the cruelty of it all (I was in a dramatic mood, okay?), the solution came to me. Okay, God smacked me upside the head with a 2×4 of memories on how I solved every other, “don’t wanna finish this series” crisis.

See, way back with Wynnewood, the only thing that got me to the finish line was a promise I made to myself. “It doesn’t have to end here. You can write more if you want to. There’s nothing to say you can do ‘Wynnewood, the Later Years’ or something like that.”

Just that one promise to myself that I didn’t have to say goodbye was all it took for me to get back on that trusty old Toshiba laptop and pound out those last few chapters.

And here I was again, not ready to say goodbye to a series—to these islands that feel so crazy real to me. I didn’t want to say goodbye to the characters and their quirky ways. Would you?

Now… you’re going to laugh at me. Go ahead. I mean, I did. See here’s the deal. I didn’t have to make that promise to myself again. “What?” you say? “What do you mean?”

Yeah. I don’t have to say goodbye to the characters or the islands. Why? Because we have another island series coming, the Suamalie Islands, and Mallory is going to visit those islands.

If that isn’t enough for me, I have another series all planned for the Independence Islands, too! Yeah. That. I mean, what was I not thinking?

As soon as I thought of that, I was able to get in there, get the last few scenes written and pass it off to the fabulous Christy for her editorial magic. As for me, I think I’m going to go play around just a little bit with one of the Josie Parker Mysteries. I mean, why not?

My Review

Book, Chapter, & Vows is Chautona Havig’s contribution for the Breakers Head part from the Independence Islands series. It is just what I would expect from this author. She knows how to write sweet and true to life stories that keeps me engaged. This one is no different. I enjoyed Mallory and Benjamin’s tale. I loved getting to know them and had to keep reading until I have read the very last page. 

I am giving Book, Chapter, & Vows four and a half stars. Readers who enjoy reading quick, sweet, and clean romantic fiction will want to snatch this one up. I look forward to reading the next installment from the Breakers Head series, Melissa Wardwell’s Delicious Devotion. 

I received a digital copy of Book, Chapter, & Vows from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

More from Michelle

When I first started writing this novel, it was because of a dream I had. I woke in the middle of the night crying, sweating, and praising God. I immediately got up, went to my computer and started writing about the dream. I was weeping the entire time and barely able to see through my tears.

In the dream, I was homeless, alone, and had drifted from God. I was hungry and went into a food kitchen to eat. I was dirty, smelled terrible, and missed Larry so much, only I knew I could never go home. I had done too much and had too much done to me to ever make it back to him.

After the person in the food kitchen put the food on my plate, I looked up and it was my husband, Larry. I was humiliated and desperately didn’t want him to recognize me. I was about to leave when in the dream Larry’s face turned to Jesus and He said, “I have been looking for you.”

That dream became the cornerstone of this novel.

My Review

It Never Occurred to Her is my first introduction to the talents of author Michelle Jester. After reading this, it will not be the last. I thought it was a pretty good read. It is one that tugged at my heart. It really spoke to me at times. It includes some important life lessons, such as, letting go and the power of forgiveness. I like that there was an element of mystery to it, also. I was a little intimidated with the size of the book but quickly realized how easily it was to keep turning the pages and finished it in no time. I loved it!

It Never Occurred to Her will be getting five stars from me. Readers who enjoy reading clean fiction dealing with real life issues will want to pick this one up. I would love to read more by Michelle Jester in the future.

COURT OF SNAKES by Tycho Dwellis Book Tour Giveaway

 


My Review: 

Court of Snakes: This Desert Cage is my first introduction to the talents of author Tycho Dwelis. It is, also, the first book in their series, Court of Snakes. I found it to be an interesting and entertaining book to read. I enjoyed Terran and Parisa’s story and seeing how they would overcome the obstacles that has been thrown at them. I was rooting for them right from the start. I admired the courage, determination and bravery Parisa demonstrated throughout the book. She is such a strong woman and loved her. It was fun taking this journey with the characters and seeing what would become of them in the end. It is not one that could be predicted and made me want to keep reading to see what would happen next. There were a few scenes that were a little slower than I would like but overall, a very good tale to read. 

I will be giving Court of Snakes: This Desert Cage four and a half stars. Readers who enjoy reading young adult and dystopian genre books will want to snatch this one up. I will be looking for the next book from the Court of Snakes series, as well as, more books by Tycho Dwelis in the future to see where else their imagination will take their readers to next.

Interview: 


How did you do research for your book? 

I do most of my research using Google, but mostly for time-sensitive subjects such as when a song was written, or a product invented. For instance, if I reference that a character is eating a Big Mac at McDonalds, I need to know that it was in fact created by 1977 or 1978 which is the time period of my last several books. The majority of the research is from personal experience.

Which was the hardest character to write? The easiest? 

The easiest character to write about, which I include to mean both actions, thoughts, and of course dialogue, is Eddie. Eddie is in many ways my alter-ego. The most difficult is Tess, and not because she is a woman. She’s much more complicated and has more issues than Eddie. She thinks and views life through a starkly different prism than Eddie.

In your book you make a reference to….how did you come up with this idea?

Major snowstorm. Growing up in Albany on several occasions we had epic, colossal snowstorms and I was able to relate my personal experience to the book. I actually had a snowblower and a dozen customers that I regularly plowed for in the early 60’s.

What made you write a book about…?

A mob war. The public never seems to lose interest in the underworld of the Mafia and in The Dirty Martini Club it seemed like the perfect backdrop to contrast Eddie’s family and their values and relationships with each other with Tess’ family. The family dynamics are as different as the weather in Albany and where Tess lives, Florida.

Where do you get inspiration for your stories? There are many books out there about….

I would say my life experiences coupled with observations about people around me.

THE DIRTY MARTINI CLUB Book Tour Giveaway


My Review: 

The Dirty Martini Club is the fourth installment from Jude Randazzo’s Tess Kinkaid series. It is, also, my first book I have read by this author. Since I have not read the other books from the series, I feel as though this one can be read as a stand alone. I found it to be a pretty good read. It took me a few chapters to get used to the writing style, but once I caught on, I was hooked. From then on, the pace quickly picked up and it stayed that way all the way through. I enjoyed getting to know Tess and Eddie and felt like they were part of my circle of friends. The book was full of action, danger, adventure, thrills suspense, and mystery. It was really entertaining to read. I was often left guessing what was going to happen next. It was like riding a roller coaster and I loved it!

The Dirty Martini Club will be getting four and a half stars from me. I believe readers and fans who enjoy reading thrilling romantic suspense reads will definitely want to pick this one up. I would be interested in reading the first three books from Tess Kincaid series to see what had transpired with Tess previously. This one should not be missed. 

I received a paperback copy of The Dirty Martini Club from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

JOIN OR DIE: - An American Patriot's Book of Quotes Book Tour Giveaway


My Review: 

Join or Die: An American Patriot's Book of Quotes by R Blake Wilson is a fabulous book to read. My young son was excited to see it when I first received it and took it over before I had a chance to read it. He greatly enjoyed reading the various patriotic quotes from the founding fathers to present American leaders. It was nice to see a book that was not one that divided political parties but gave some wonderful messages from all parties throughout history. I found them inspiring and saw how most of them have been relevant for our country through the years. I love that it included the text of the Declaration of the Independence, Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It was a great little lesson for my son and it was great to sit and talk to him to see what all he learned. 

I am giving Join or Die: An American Patriot's Book of Quotes a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly believe readers who enjoy reading historical figures, inspiring messages and patriotic quotes will definitely want to grab this one. It will be placed on my limited keeper shelf to have on hand to read again and again. I will be looking for more books like this by R Blake Wilson in the future. 

I received a paperback copy of Join or Die: An American Patriot's Book of Quotes from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
