Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world. She is.
Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row. He's wrong. FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming. It is. Deep in the jungles of eastern Colombia, Professor Jonas Lear has finally found what he's been searching for - and wishes to God he hadn't.
In Memphis, Tennessee, a six-year-old girl called Amy is left at the convent of the Sisters of Mercy and wonders why her mother has abandoned her. In a maximum security jail in Nevada, a convicted murderer called Giles Babcock has the same strange nightmare, over and over again, while he waits for a lethal injection. In a remote community in the California mountains, a young man called Peter waits for his beloved brother to return home, so he can kill him. Bound together in ways they cannot comprehend, for each of them a door is about to open into a future they could not have imagined.
And a journey is about to begin. An epic journey that will take them through a world transformed by man's darkest dreams, to the very heart of what it means to be human. And beyond. This looks like a cross between Stephen King and zombies. While it's out in hardback at the moment I think I'll wait for the paperback version. Definitely one to watch out for!
See a Problem?
Married with Zombies - Jesse Peterson. Meet Sarah and David. Sarah and David are like any other couple. They met, they fell in love, but now they're on the verge of divorce. On a routine trip to the marriage counsellor, they notice a few odd things -- the lack of cars on the road, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counsellor, Dr Kelly, is ripping out her previous client's throat. Meet the zombies. Now, Sarah and David are fighting for survival in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. But just because there are zombies, it doesn't mean your other problems go away.
And if the zombies don't eat their brains, they might just kill each other. A slightly more lighthearted look at the zombie apocalypse - looks like a lot of fun! Dust - Joan Frances Turner. Nine years ago, Jessie was in a car crash and died. After she was buried, she awoke and tore through the earth to arise, reborn, as a zombie. Now Jessie is part of a gang. They fight, hunt and dance together as one - something humans can never understand. There are dark places humans have learned to avoid, lest they run into zombie gangs.
But when a mysterious illness threatens the existence of both zombies and humans, Jessie must choose between looking away or staring down the madness - and hanging on to everything she now knows as life. This looks like an Urban Fantasy with a zombie as the lead character - could be an interesting read.

Labels: Book Blogger Hop. Thursday, 16 September Feed Review. Feed Newsflesh 1. I am now a zombie convert! I will hold my hand up and say I was wrong. We learned to adapt. The zombies and the way world is portrayed after this disaster is superbly done. A lot of thought has gone into the world and you can see the basis for it all is based in our world today — everything from the rise of blogging something I can now relate to! Add in a political race and conspiracy and I was hooked.
There are some great action scenes involving zombies as well as some thought provoking musings on the truth and family. The ending is very moving and I had gulp back tears. This is one of the best books I've read this year and I highly recommend that you give it- and zombies - a try! Wednesday, 15 September My Book Haul. Smith Hodder Children's Books. I read the original 4 Vampire Diaries as a teenager and loved them.
I didn't rush out and buy this book because I really struggled with Nightfall and it tarred much of my fond memories of the original books. However, I came across it in a charity shop and thought I'll give LJ Smith a chance to make it up to me. Cecelia is always an interesting read as she usually combines chick-lit with something a little different if not completely fantastical! Looking forward to trying this book. This is the book I received as a gift from my lovely friend Dr KL - great friends always know which books you'll love! I loved the study series but due to my inability to start trilogies until all books have been released I've been sitting on the Opal Cowan books for the last 18 months.
Posted by Mel at 1 comment:. Labels: Book Haul , Books. May Contain Traces of Magic. This time though something was a little lacking for me. Some of the observations were spot on, while a lot failed to hit the mark for me. What kept me reading was the intriguing stop involving continual demon attacks and how Chris was involved. No real relation to the characters here but it was a better book!
Monday, 13 September Raven's Shadow Review. Publisher: US — Ace Fantasy.

For many years the city of Colossae was a haven of magical study. As generations of wizards pushed the limits of their abilities, an evil entity was unleashed that could only be contained by the sacrifice of their city. From the ashes of Colossae, the Travelers emerged - roaming the world to ensure that the Stalker would remain imprisoned forever.
Seraph is a Raven mage and among the last of the Travelers. Unwelcome among those who fear magic, the wizard clans have been decimated by the very people they've been sworn to protect. But Seraph is spared a similar fate by the ex-soldier Tier - and together they build a life where she is no longer burdened by her people's responsibility. But now Tier is missing - or dead - and Seraph's reprieve from her duty is over. Using her magic to discover her husband's fate, Seraph realizes the Stalker's prison is weakening - and only she can fulfill her ancestors' oath to protect humanity from destruction However before Mercy, Patricia wrote straight fantasy novels and this was my first trial run at her back catalogue.
First off this is a much smaller page count than most fantasy books — no big pages tome that can double for a door stop, but a nice light pages. I sped through the pages, following Seraph and Tier, learning about a threat first of all to their family and then watched as the threat widened to include the Traveller race of people and later the whole Empire. It may not be the best example of fantasy but it was an enjoyable journey and one I would recommend for a few fun hours. This week on Books Remembered I want to talk or write as the case is!
These days Blyton has fallen out of favour for her old fashioned views and outdated treatment of women among other things. In fact, that was all pretty much true when I read these books about 22 years ago. What fascinated me was this massive tree in the forest where all these strange people lived — all sorts of different people including Moon-face and Silkie the fairy and Wassisname — who no-one could remember his real name.
There was the guy who was always snoring and Saucepan Man who wore saucepans.

Every day a different land would come to rest at the top the tree, so when the three children who lived near the woods climbed to the top they found themselves having all sorts of fun adventures — from the Rocking land, to the land made of sweets to the school land run by a very strict headmistress. Each day would bring something different — literally a land of possibilities and they never knew what would happen. To a young child starting to use her imagination this was beautiful story telling — fantasy indeed.
Even leaving the tree once you got to the top involved a slide down to the bottom again! There were three books about the Magic Faraway Tree and their adventures and I loved them all. I would get them out from my local library as often as I could and re-read them over and over. It was a literal escape where any world you could think off could happen — at the same time the children learnt about themselves and were punished for being naughty. While it was a very black and white world — it helped shaped my imagination and has certainly impacted my reading habits since.
I prefer to remember The Magic Faraway Tree as the first books to show me that books were about more than words — they could contain whole worlds — as sometimes more than one. Labels: Books Remembered , Childrens Books. Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater. Publisher: UK Scholastic October Grace is fascinated by the wolves in the woods behind her house; one yellow-eyed wolf in particular.
Every winter, she watches him but every summer, he disappears. Sam leads two lives. In winter he stays in the frozen woods, with the protection of the pack. When Grace and Sam finally meet they realize they can't bear to be apart. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human - or risk losing himself, and Grace, for ever I've heard a lot of positive buzz about this book on line and would like to give a go myself - maybe I'm just bowing to peer pressure but I want in on the 'Twilight with werewolves' craze!
Publisher: Gollancz Paperback March Men and women are killed indiscriminately but Authun demands that no child be touched. He is acting on prophecy. A prophecy that tells him that the Saxons have stolen a child from the Gods. If Authun, in turn, takes the child and raises him as an heir, the child will lead his people to glory. But Authun discovers not one child, but twin baby boys.
Ensuring that his faithful warriors, witness to what has happened, die during the raid Authun takes the children and their mother home, back to the witches who live on the troll wall. And he places his destiny in their hands. And so begins a stunning multi-volume fantasy epic that will take a werewolf from his beginnings as the heir to a brutal viking king, down through the ages.
It is a journey that will see him hunt for his lost love through centuries and lives, and see the endless battle between the wolf, Odin and Loki - the eternal trickster - spill over into countless bloody conflicts from our history, and over into our lives. Hardback is too much like weight lifting on my daily commute So what are you wishing for? Labels: Books , Werewolves , Wishlist.
Thursday, 9 September Midnight's Daughter Review. Puiblisher: UK — Penguin. Dorina Basarab is a dhampir, the daughter of a vampire and a human woman. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs are born barking mad and live very short, very violent lives. So for five hundred years, Dory has been fighting to maintain her sanity by unleashing her homicidal tendencies on those demons and vampires who deserve killing.
Her uncle Dracula, notorious even among vampires for his cruelty and murderous ways, has escaped from prison, and her father wants Dory to work with the gorgeous vampire dueling champion Louis-Cesare to put him back there. Vampires and dhampirs are mortal enemies, and Dory prefers to work alone. As a heroine Dory certainly fits into the strong independent woman who kicks ass and has a dark past mould easily but brings something different. This Dory book was more linear than the Cassie books with a beginning, middle and end rather than just a series of events as part of wider story.
There are a few cameos and staring roles from the Cassie books but nothing that feels too out of place. Wednesday, 8 September My Book Haul this week. I've been restrained this week and have only purchased two books:. How could I say no?! So what have you picked up this week? The Lost Symbol. There are plenty of other books combining ancient mysteries out there — and some of them are done a lot better My favourite is James Rollins!
Planet Library | beta.kib.no-Page:380
The first two thirds of this book involved people standing around talking and arguing. Most of the characters barely have anything to distinguish themselves from another — no personalities at all. Not that I want them to be bad but a little more grey would be nice and add mystery to the plot.
Monday, 6 September Blue Diablo Review. Blue Diablo Corine Solomon 1. Blue Diablo introduces Corine Solomon, her ex, Chance and a new world where there are gifted — people who can read emotions, sorcerers and mediums, and handlers. Most of this novel is set on the border between Mexico and the US — which is a new area for me.
The book reads more of a mystery and detective novel rather than a paranormal romance and while there was some sexual tension — both between Corine and Chance and with Corine and Jesse, a local cop who helps them out, it is not the backbone of the story. There are some interesting action scenes — especially towards the end. Overall, it adds something slightly different to the crowded Urban Fantasy genre.
The cast of characters is varied — I really liked Chuch and Eva, who feel like a real couple and I love the way they actually help out and add to the story rather than just act as comic relief or get kidnapped. Come on! There are as many flavours of women out there as there are men — why just have one in a novel, even if she is the kick-ass heroine? Ok, rant over. Recommended for fans of Mercy Thompson and Sabina Kane. Newer Posts Older Posts Home.
