I was given a copy of “The Land’s Whisper” in exchange for an honest review. This is a very well written fantasy. At first some of the language and names had me a little confused, however after a bit of reading I was able to work out what was meant. (in example measurements of miles and time were given fiction names). After finishing the kindle version I found the definitions in the back, so that might be a good place to start. The main characters are flawed and fleshed out. The story had me crying and laughing, and some places just plain cringing. There is no swearing or sexual content. There is torture and violence. It is after all a story of good versus evil. I give it five stars and can’t wait until the next book is out. Though it is part of a series, it has a clear ending. I give it five stars. I loved it.

I was given a copy of The Sarian’s Sword (Tales of Vantoria book 1) in exchange for an honest review. This is a great fantasy/sci fi read. It is unapologetically Christian and I loved the characters and the mix of modern and old in the story. A good allegory and I love those. I give it four stars. Fun read with a very good message that will get you thinking. No sexual content or swearing, there is fighting and violence (mild). I can recommend for teens and up.

Book Review for “Unintended Target”- Christian Mystery/romance

“Unintended Target” by D.L. Wood was a great read. Christian romance, with a twist. There is mystery, action, and romance. I really enjoyed it and will be reading more from this author. The characters are fleshed out, the story is well written. I can recommend for ages 16 and up, though written for adults. The Christian message isn’t “in your face” but is simply a part of who the characters are. A good read! I give it four stars.

Prologue

“Where is the child?” Horace Acerbi calmly asked his son.

“Someplace safe,” answered the young man. “Did you think I was capable of taking care of a baby?”

“Your mother and I would have cared for the baby,” Horace replied as he removed a speck of lint from his suit coat.

The sixteen year old raised his eyebrows, but refused to rise to the bait. Looking his father in the eyes he waited silently.

“So you packed him off like old rubbish to be raised by strangers?” the father asked shaking his head in condemnation.

Still the young man kept his peace.

Horace walked to the window of his great domain and stood gazing out at the night sky.

“I suppose you didn’t give the mother much thought. She took the news rather hard, I am afraid. The housekeeper found her, just a short time ago, hanging from the chandelier in the nursery. It seems she used your old jump rope to do the job.”

“You lie!” the young man finally caved.

“Go see for yourself, I told them to leave her. I wanted you to see what you have accomplished by your willful disregard for propriety.”

“You want to lecture me about propriety?” yelled the youth as he ran from the room.

He took the stairs two at a time until he was on the third floor of the mansion. Blind with rage, out of breath, and riddled with guilt he burst through the door of his old nursery, and there cold and still, hung the body of the only person who had ever loved him…

Book Review for “Golden Daughter”- YA Christian Fantasy

The final book of “The Goldstone Wood” series, if you don’t count the two novella’s. I loved this one too. What can I say. My kind of fantasy, allegory. I am going to be sad to see it end. There is a lot more of one of my favorite characters in this one, “Monster” the man who is a cat. I loved these as much as Narnia and almost as much as Lord of the Rings! Five plus stars and a new favorite fantasy author.

Book Review for “Aoleon the Martian Girl: The Hollow Moon”-Middle Grade Sci Fi

book 3

What the book is about: The Hollow Moon (Part 3 of 5) Spying on the Luminon, Aoléon and Gilbert uncover his plot to steal Earth’s milk cows. They make the disturbing discovery that the Martian leader plans to disrupt Mars’ galact supply. Hoping to reach the galactworks before the Luminon’s saboteur, the duo races to warn Aoléon’s father, Deimos, manager at the galactworks, that he is in danger. While still on the run, Aoléon takes her pilot’s exam so she can join the Martian intergalactic exploration fleet. During the test-run, however, something goes horribly wrong. The two are put in a life-threatening situation, and only Bizwat, Aoléon’s Procyon commando friend, can save them. Gilbert finally gets his chance to learn to skyboard, but the lesson turns into a test of skill as he and Aoléon are chased by the Royal Paladin Guards. Will they survive?

My Review: I was given a copy of “The Hollow Moon” in exchange for an honest review.

This is book three in the series and the adventure continues. We finally find out the true nature of the Martian leader and this book is packed with action. There is some violence in this book as there are a few fight scenes. Aoleon and Gilbert are forced into a plot that thickens with every page. The Martian girl series is a good choice for chapter books for middle graders as it is fast paced and full of colorful pictures that are more like movie stills than illustrations.

Great graphics, great humor, and all around sci fi fun.

I give this book four stars. I liked it.

I can recommend for ages 9-13, though adult sci fi fans, who are kids at heart, would enjoy it as well.
