Chapel Street by Sean Paul Murphy Review

Chapel Street by Sean Paul Murphy Review

Chapel Street is a horror novel written by Sean Paul Murphy and was published in July of 2020.  Synopsis: This book was inspired by real life events the author experienced.  There is some information online that he has posted about it, but I'm only reviewing this book as a stand alone story.  I have not read more into the backstory and his experiences. What I Liked: There are some new ideas presented here that had potential. It handles difficult topics pretty resp

Nightmare by Chad Nicholas Review

Nightmare by Chad Nicholas Review

Nightmare is a horror novel written by Chad Nicholas and was published in October of 2020 Synopsis:   What I Liked: This story keeps you guessing until the very end, and keeps you thinking about the book days after you've finished.  There are so many times I've gone back to try to catch clues or things I missed. There are some terrifying and gut wrenching moments. This book could be read in one sitting, it flows really well and it's very ha

Kings of Ash is the second book in the Ash and Sand trilogy and was published in January of 2019. https://www.amazon.com/Kings-Ash-Sand-Book-ebook/dp/B07KMTW9BB Synopsis: What I Liked: Ruka.  He's one of my all time favorite characters, not only in fantasy but overall.  He has some great quotes in this book that make me a bigger fan. In my Kings of Paradise review I mentioned that there were some parts of the story that felt as though they were missing.  Without a

Nocturne: A Collection of Dark Tales by H.B. Diaz Review

Nocturne: A Collection of Dark Tales by H.B. Diaz Review

Nocturne was written by H.B. Diaz it's a collection of short stories and was published in December of 2020 A synopsis from Amazon:   Because this is a collection of short stories, this review won't be in my usual format (What I liked, didn't like, rating ect.). I picked this book up on a whim when I saw a Twitter thread a few weeks ago where authors were promoting their independent books.  I grabbed a handful of books and intended to get to them when I could squeeze them in

Crackle and Fire Book by Russ Colchamiro Review

Crackle and Fire Book by Russ Colchamiro Review

Crackle and Fire is the first book in the Angela Harwicke Mysterys series. I was provided a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis:   What I liked: In what feels like a lifetime ago, I was a Private Investigator for a period of time.  This story took me back to those days.  I wonder if the author either has been a PI at some point or knows someone who has. The environments are vibrant The book is fast paced with lots of tw

Kings of Paradise by Richard Nell Review

Kings of Paradise by Richard Nell Review

Kings of Paradise is the first installment in the Ash and Sand trilogy Synopsis:   What I Liked: The plot moves smoothly from one POV to the other, each character has it's own distinct voice and background. The characters make both heroic and horrific decisions though the story, but because you feel as though you've been on this journey with them you have a little bit of sympathy when you probably shouldn't.  You care for the characters in the world even when they

Vicious (Villains #1) by V.E. Schwab Review

Vicious (Villains #1) by V.E. Schwab Review

Vicious is a fantasy and science fiction novel written by V.E. Schwab and was published in 2013.  It's the first book in the Villains series. A synopsis: What I Liked: Strong character development.  This isn't a good vs. evil kind of book.  At a point in the book one of the characters says "There are no good men in this game" and that sums up the characters.  I've heard other reviewers say they couldn't enjoy this book because none of the characters are "good".  That's

All Systems Red: The Murderbot Diaries Review

All Systems Red is a science fiction novella written by Martha Wells and was published in May of 2017 and is the first book in a 6 part Murderbot series. A synopsis: With a title like Murderbot, I was expecting this: It was the exact opposite of that. What I liked: This book is pretty funny.  The humor is my type of droll humor I enjoy.  I laughed out loud more than a few times. Especially now we can all relate to just wanting to be left alone and those

Priest of Bones Review (January 2021 Read-along)

Priest of Bones Review (January 2021 Read-along)

Priest of Bones is a fantasy (grimdark) book written by Peter McClean and was published in 2018.  It's the first book in the War for the Rose Thorn series.  There are plans to adapt the series for television. A warning that this book contains violence and abuse of children, so if that's something you're sensitive to you may want to steer clear of this one. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this, it was the first time dipping my toes in grim dark fantasy.  I was expecting somethin
