SPECIAL RUN

BY LENA J. MCCOY

51KpBRq0WGL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

I read Special Run by Lena McCoy as part of a book review exchange through IndieTribe. I have to say that I haven’t read many paranormal mysteries, but I was captivated from the first page. I have personal experience and interest in all things psychic, so to find white and black witches, Lycanthropes, Mediums, Fairy conjurers, psychokinetics and an animal psychic piqued my interest immediately. The concept of an entire town made up of people with psychic gifts intrigued me and I could not stop turning pages. I literally read this book in two days.

The murder of Katandra Omstead, a super talented botanist/psychokinetic who’d invented a miracle medicinal form of marijuana, started an avalanche of events, all tied directly into her murder. The character of Special, a part wolf, part collie, part german shepherd dog who adored Kat, added a whole other dimension to the story. Special witnessed the murder and suffered injury herself. It was up to animal psychic, Wheat Keigwin (Kat’s best friend) to communicate with the dog and help solve the crime. I truly did not know who had brutally murdered Kat until the book was nearly to an end. Great writing by Ms. McCoy! She did a terrific job of weaving the characters together through past and present events.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes spine tingling paranormal adventure!

I give this book a 5 Star rating.

Mr Grumpy Lizard Meets The Giggling Girls by Joyce Shaughnessy

Review by Jan Sikes

Unknown

I received Mr. Grumpy Lizard Meets the Giggling Girls in a review exchange and I have to say that each page delighted me more than the one before. This is a story of four little girls who loved life and laughter. Through their infectious laughter, the entire reptile kingdom, that had a reputation for being solemn or even downright grumpy, managed to find a smile that soon turned into a full belly laugh.

I loved this story and look forward to sharing it with my grandchildren. The words flow easily and the illustrations are beautifully done. Each personality is portrayed perfectly through the illustrations. It is the perfect story for children ages 3 and up.
Great work, Joyce and Dennis Shaughnessy.

I give this book five stars for story content and illustration.

 The Convict and The Rose by Jan Sikes

Review by Joyce Shaughnessy

51i-wnycGOL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU02_

The Convict and the Rose by author, Jan Sikes, took me completely by surprise in a great way. I underestimated the author. I became intrigued and invested in what happened to the characters very quickly. It is a fictionalized autobiography — the characters are based upon the author and her late husband, Rick Sikes. It has such an unusual setting that I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. Luke Stone is wrongly convicted of a robbery and sentenced to fifty years in prison. Although he loves Darlina, he doesn’t expect or want her to wait for him because of his long sentence. But both of them mature and grow spiritually during his time in prison, and neither ever gives up on the love they share. Sikes has a way of making the reader feel the pain the characters experience and the deep love that they have for each other.

Jan is truly an amazing author who generously shares her love story. I would recommend this book for anyone who is interested in reading about personal growth and love told in a creative and inspiring manner.

Two great Irene Helenowski books reviewed

Revised Orders

41fUNJqg7mL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

 Irene Helenowski wrote a brilliant Sci Fi book, Order of the Dimensions, which I was privileged to read and delighted to review.

Revised Orders serves up an admirable sequel. The villain is back to complete his unfinished business and is set upon avenging those that obstructed him in book one.

The full cast returns in this book and Irene has displayed her immense word skills in the way in which she has developed each character within their new dimension. She has successfully grappled with the continuity issue of retaining the essential personality of each character within a very different context.

The villain continues his dastardly course, and in line with all good plots, his actions grow ever more stronger along the way.

Not only will this book be successful in its own right, it should encourage a resurgence in sales for book one. In fact if you’ve not bought Order of the Dimensions already, you should buy it now together with a copy of this one, Revised Orders. You will then be all set to buy the third one in the series, Final Orders. I’m confident you’ll enjoy every second reading all three, but make sure you read them in order.

Available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

 

Final Orders 

51RAoO+CvhL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-v3-big,TopRight,0,-55_SX278_SY278_PIkin4,BottomRight,1,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Irene Helenowski’s Sci – fi drama has continued unabated into this third edition. Final Orders follows two superb earlier editions, Order of the Dimensions and Revised Orders. Having read and reviewed the previous two, I could not see how this one could retain the impetus served up by its predecessors. And it doesn’t. It exceeds it!

The number of dimensions increases at a pace and the reader really does have to hold on tight. This saga makes George Orwell’s ‘Big Brother’ concept look very tame and the amount of power that is available to The Orders, together with their new found ability to look forwards and backwards in time is awe-inspiring. No-one is safe and punishment is swift.

And yet beneath all this there is an underlying tenderness, allowing the reader some respite, and to realize that normal standards and values still exist beneath a pretty harrowing surface.

I would highly recommend any sci-fi and time travel fan to buy this book, together with the two previous ones. And you do need to read them in order for maximum benefit.

I’m delighted to have just read two Childrens’ Books written by Frances Gilbert and illustrated by Ben Quesnel.

 

THE COOKIE THIEF

41n12ZzTj8L._AA160_

An intriguing tale with a real twist. The outcome certainly had me fooled. I may be a bit old for this genre, but as a grandfather and retired primary school teacher in the UK, I know the sort of books that intrigue kids from age 4 to 9, and The Cookie Thief fits the bill.

Depending upon the age of the child it lends itself to being read or listened to by that entire age range.

As the title implies, a cookie thief is on the loose, and none of Thomas’s family are immune. Despite their varied preventative measures, whichever relative he visits, the biscuits have all gone and he has to do without.

His friend, Kristina, steps in to help and forges a plan. Through her guile, the culprit is exposed and the reader is left aghast.

A lovely little tale that your child is sure to enjoy.

Available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

 

TODAY THE TEACHER CHANGED OUR SEATS

51R0zqVv3HL._AA160_

Dedicated to teachers everywhere, this little book gives an insight into the clever little ways in which maths can be taught to early school grades.

The teacher in this story decides to use grouping to decide where children sit in his class. All well and good, but this doesn’t suit the child narrator, who finds that she does not fit in the group shared by her friends, and does not like it.

But again a twist. One of her friends devises an ingenious plan to ensure that she is in fact included. Everyone’s happy. Everyone wins.

Available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

 

Both these books will provide great fun to children on both sides of the Atlantic. I’ve tested them on my grandkids and they both work.

Well done Frances and the young illustrator, Ben for producing two little gems
