Book Description
Zach Kalusky, host of Sci-D TV's Xavier Paranormal Investigators, is ecstatic when he's given the opportunity to explore the most haunted site in Chicago for a Halloween Special: Rosewood Asylum, a place long made off-limits by the local government, plagued by decades of mysterious fires and unexplained events. It's Zach's dream investigation- but there's a catch: the network forces Xavier Paranormal Investigators to partner with the more dramatic-but less ethical-Demon Hunters. Now, Zach must fight for both his show's integrity and his team's loyalty while trying to protect his own secret: that he, himself, is possessed.

Book Description
From the author of The Widow's Son - a Kirkus Starred Review Literary Mystery:

Which is right: the eyewitness testimony of an eight-year-old boy or exculpatory DNA evidence?
Sixteen years after Richard Hill testified in court that he crouched under the kitchen tablecloth and saw Henry Clayton rape his white momma and murder her and his black poppa, a DNA swab earns the prisoner a pardon and his freedom. Returning to Red River Falls, Clayton claims that he has been reborn and offers to help Hill, now a patrol officer, identify who really killed his parents. Hill, who relives the family horrors every day, doesn't believe him. But how can he prove DNA evidence wrong? An ingrained distrust of everyone except Doria, the aunt who raised him, has led Hill to distance himself from his squad-car partner Jack Harter, and his mixed parentage has alienated him from members of both races. When he leans on radio reporter Sydney Brey for help, the search for truth puts Sydney on the railroad tracks as a train heads for her, leaves Auntie Doria bleeding on her bedroom floor and makes Hill the target of bands of good old boys with swastika tattoos. Ultimately, his childhood memories hold true but bring the disturbing possibility that the perfect science can be corrupted while racial enmity festers undercover.

But though she's ready to gamble her heart on Zack, a powerful enemy stalks their every move...watches their every kiss...and waits to destroy their undying love...





MY TAKE

4 STARS


Amanda Ashley's Bound by Blood is the sequel to Bound by Night. I actually liked this book better than Bound by Night. I liked the characters better and it just seemed to flow better than the first book.

Between the two books, twenty years has passed. Drake and Elena's daughter, Kaitlyn (half vampire, half mortal) has grown up. Her love interest in this book is Zack. He's a casino owner and is also one of the forbidden “Other” vampires.

There were a couple of moments in the book I thought could have been done a bit different, but overall I really did like Bound by Blood.

Book Description
A boxed set of four novellas in the best-selling Kate Jones Thriller Series.

Kate Jones Thriller Series Vol. 1 includes the complete text for the following four novellas:

BAD SPIRITS (Books 1-5): Kate Jones is on the run with a backpack full of money, intent on finding her way back to the United States from Mexico. Unfortunately, a ruthless drug lord named Salazar is just as intent on finding her, retrieving his stolen money, and making her pay for ever having left him. Is there anyone she can trust?

DEAD OF WINTER: Kate Jones is hiding out in small town Alaska when she witnesses an execution-style murder. Convinced the killers are Salazar's men and desperate to stop them from finding her, she reports the crime to local law enforcement, hoping to put them off her trail so she can escape.

DEATH RITES: When Kate has to leave Alaska (and Sam) behind, she runs to the last place she remembers feeling safe: the North Shore of Oahu. Against her better judgment, she re-establishes old connections, and soon faces a new problem in Alek, a gifted carver and avid surfer.

Then a brutal murder and theft of a priceless artifact from a museum is discovered, and Kate's thrown into the middle of what appears to be a violent ancient sect come to life. Her only chance of survival is to rely on her wits...

...and the ancient gods of Hawaii.

TOURING FOR DEATH: Kate Jones is hiding out from her shady past driving jeep tours through the rugged high desert of northern Arizona, determined to stop looking over her shoulder and find peace from her mistake of a gun-toting, former life. Testifying against a Mexican drug lord and a dirty DEA agent didn't turn out to be a life enhancing choice and she's been on the move ever since.

Now, five years have passed with no sign of trouble and Kate's finally starting to believe she's safe. Her current goal is to make enough money so she can get lost in the tropics when the tourist trade dies off. Unfortunately, it's the tourists that are dying off and she may be next.

REVIEW: OLD FLAMES BY JACK KETCHUM


OLD FLAMES
JACK KETCHUM
GENRE: HORROR/THRILLER

SYNOPSIS


Burned again. Men never treated Dora well. This latest cheated on her and dumped her. The last decent guy she knew was her old high school boyfriend, Jim. He'd said that he loved her. Maybe he did. So with the help of the Flame Finders, Dora's found him again. Turns out he's married with two kids. But Dora isn't about to let that stand in her way.

Includes the bonus novella A Right to Life.






MY TAKE

4 STARS


Okay, anyone who knows me knows I am a big fan of Ketchum's work—The Lost being one of my favorites. With this book, Ketchum delivers two captivating novellas, Old Flames and A Right to Life.

Old Flames is a story of obsession that ends tragically. The female lead, Dora, is a nut-job. It's obvious within the first few pages that she's a bit unhinged and it only gets worse from there. Moral of the story—if you run into an old flame, leave it in the past where it belongs!

The second story is A Right to Life. Honestly, at first, I didn't know if I wanted to even read this one but decided to give it a chance anyway. I am not a fan of reading about child horror and I thought this is where this story would go, but it didn't. This is a gripping story about a woman named Sara Foster. Right off, I felt bad for Sara. She's in her early forties and finds herself pregnant by her married lover. Some years ago, Sara's lost her only child Daniel when he drown in a frozen lake. Now she's pregnant and is about to walk into a clinic to abort her baby. Before she can even get to the clinic doors, she's kidnapped by a couple who has big plans for her and her unborn child.

What Sara goes through at the hands of her captors is unnerving and made me very squeamish at times. Up until the last couple of chapters, I kept wondering where Ketchum was going to take this story. I had no idea how the heck it would end. It was a very open novella that could have had several possible endings. Thankfully, Ketchum went with the ending I would have chosen. After feeling tense and hopeless during most of the story, the ending left me with closure and a good feeling.

Both of the novellas contained in this book are pretty good stories. Very well worth the read.
