Treasure of the Malkin Book Trailer Release

November 19th, 2016

Coming Soon…

Just two more weeks! The release of my newest novella in the Malkin series, Treasure of the Malkin, is almost here! I am so excited to share this brand new story with you that I just couldn’t wait to release the book trailer. So, without further ado, here is the newest trailer in the Malkin family…

 

Coming Dec. 1, 2016

When demons rise, only a time-traveling feline can save the world.

Henry is the Librarian, or was until a demon from the Horde thrust him into the future. Now he’s a magical talking cat in a time where no such thing exists. After a being hit by a car, he strikes an uneasy friendship with an unassuming human named Liz, whose inquisitiveness rivals his own. Hoping to find a way back to his time, Henry asks Liz to grant him a final favor before he leaves: to visit the grand opening of the new Ancient Mysteries wing of the local library. While admiring the exhibits from his own time, Henry discovers someone has plans to raise the demon Horde using an ancient magical artifact tucked away in the library’s collection. With no one else to turn to, Henry and Liz work to stop the threat before the demons rise and bring the end of the world with them.

About the Author

Emilie has been writing stories for the past ten years. Her love for storytelling and fairy tales began when she was a little girl and her dad would make up bedtime stories about a princess named Amichelie; a character based off the names of Emilie and her sisters.

Midnight Captive is her first novel, written during National Novel Writing Month November 2010. She participated in the writing challenge the following two years and produced two more novel rough drafts. Her plan is to work on editing one of those drafts over the summer along with continuing to write a fantasy novel set in the real world.

Emilie lives in Alberta, Canada. In her spare time she enjoys crocheting baby blankets for her nieces and nephews and creating graphic art while watching British television.

Upon Review: The Dream Keeper (The Dream Keeper Chronicles) by Mikey Brooks

February 12th, 2014

I love to curl up with a nice, steaming cup of tea and a free book to review. In fact I subscribe to three book review sites: Book CrashBook Rooster and The Bookplex just so I can indulge in my favorite leisure activity. What’s even better is when an author contacts me for a review. If you’re an author looking for someone to review your book or short story, check out my Request a Review page.

Because I like to share the great reads I’ve found (and warn readers of the not-so-great finds), I developed a system:

  • One cup — worse than a cup of luke warm black pekoe
  • Two cups — it may be hot, but you’ll need plenty of sweetener just to tolerate it
  • Three cups — it’s not my favorite, but it beats going without
  • Four cups — nice and hot and only needs a smidge of sweetener to be perfect
  • Five cups — loose leaf vanilla Earl Grey, yummy

Sometimes a book or story doesn’t warrant a five cup rating, but it’s so good it can’t be missed. For those I include the “Must Read” starburst in front of the cup rating. You’ll find my cup rating above the picture of the cover. Enjoy!

 

The Dream Keeper (The Dream Keeper Chronicles) by Mikey Brooks

Five Cup Must Read

 

 

Dreams: Dorothy called it Oz, Alice called it Wonderland, but Nightmares call it HOME.

When an evil shifter takes over the gateway to the realm of Dreams, it falls to 14-year-olds Parker and Kaelyn to stop him. Their only hope lies with Gladamyr, the Dream Keeper, but can they trust a Nightmare to save their world?

The Good…

From the start, I was drawn into the lives of Kaelyn and Parker, remembering what it was like to feel like an outsider in junior high. The characters are realistically written, colorful and easily remembered. Information leading to Fyren’s end was subtly woven throughout the story in such a way as to be obvious only after the fact. And what good story doesn’t have a hero’s sacrifice? This one was both obviously necessary and beautifully written. Added to those well-written details was the weaving in of the next book’s story, making the final chapter a satisfying cliff hanger with just the right amount of closure mixed with teaser.

The Not-so-good…

A few of the dreamlings seemed like over-the-top caricatures or thrown together after thoughts. However, dreams seldom make sense and are products of our vivid imaginations, so I suppose it would be natural that some of the characters would be outrageous stereotypes and others would be not quite solid in their description. Keeping that in mind, the comic-like descriptions of those few wasn’t a deal breaker for me.

The Overall…

I would highly recommend The Dream Keeper (The Dream Keeper Chronicles) by Mikey Brooks to middle graders and adults who enjoy well written flights of fancy.

Dreamsnatcher Cover Reveal

October 30th, 2013

I’m so excited to be in on the cover reveal for one of my favorite authors. Here it is, the long awaited sequel to Dreamwalker and Dreamstealer:

Dreamsnatcher Cover Reveal

Falling asleep has never been so dangerous…

Lexa has spent the past five years training the princess of Teltania in dreamwalking, but with Taryn’s eighteenth birthday approaching, the girl has increasing royal duties and Lexa is getting ready to retire yet again. This time she’s looking forward to settling down and sailing with Sir Neil Duram—until his ship barely survives a raider attack. The raiders have been hounding Teltania’s coast and their victims are falling into comas. With Neil’s crew at risk, Lexa sets out to find a cure. But things aren’t what they seem. She discovers that the comatose have been snatched from their dreams and stolen into the dreamscape. The scattered cases soon become a potential plague, and Lexa has to find the connection between the waking world raiders and the dream snatchers. Is there a third dreamwalker out there, or something much more sinister? Lexa’s desperate search for answers will drive her to the edge in order to save everything she cares about.

Upon Review: Hera, Queen of Gods (Goddess Unbound) by T.D. Thomas

Hera, Queen of Gods (Goddess Unbound) by T.D. Thomas

Five Cup Must Read

 

 

 Here is the description that caught my attention:

The Fates are missing. Hera has no choice but to lead a handful of gods to the human world to search for the missing goddesses, even though it means giving up her powers and temporarily becoming mortal. But mortality begins to change Hera in unexpected ways, and it gets much worse after she meets Justin, a boy who defies every prejudice she once had about mortals. Torn between who she’s becoming and who she needs to be in order to fulfill her duty, Hera must survive a horde of murderous creatures sent to exploit her new weakness. In the end, only she can stop a traitorous plot conceived by a secret alliance of ancient and new enemies, a plot that threatens to destroy not only the order Hera is sworn to protect, but all of existence itself.

The Good…

I could not put this book down. I loved the fast-paced action and the constant wondering about what would happen next. I started out believing the main characters would all make it to the end, but Thomas took that safety away early on, making it clear that death could snatch any of them at any moment. Talk about adding tension.

Perhaps the best part was the mystery behind who took the Fates. Like my favorites, this book kept me guessing. In fact, I never figured out who was responsible for capturing the Fates until it was revealed and that rarely happens.

I also loved the epilogue. Like prologues, I often skip epilogues because they rarely add anything to the story. Not so for this book. The epilogue gives a nice conclusion while still leaving you on the cliff.

The Not-so-good…

There were a couple places during their rituals that I couldn’t suspend my disbelief. For instance, it’s difficult for me to believe that pricking the finger of four people would create enough blood to create a circle if you poured it on the ground. Thankfully those details are not integral to the plot, so they weren’t make-it-or-break-it for enjoying the story as a whole.

The Overall…

Hera, Queen of Gods (Goddess Unbound) by T.D. Thomas is a roller-coaster ride that mystery and fantasy fans alike will enjoy. Make sure you clear your schedule when you pick up this book, because you won’t be able to put it down.
