5 Stars

I have a real treat for you today Gentle Readers. Dan McClure’s debut novel is a fantasy delight. Adventure, danger, magic, love and betrayal. Oh, and a book that could reshape the world.

Grant Scotland is a an operative for Zyren’s equivalent of the CIA or MI6, ┬ámaybe not as smooth as James Bond though. When an old friend comes to town looking for help, Grant springs into action the only way he knows how. Full steam ahead and little regard for his own safety.

Double crossed by a former lover, Grant’s on a mission that just keeps getting murkier as he goes. Throw in an almost honorable gangster with a nearly criminal general and you get a massive tug of war over a magical book with the powers of Gods.

Run headlong with Grant as he tries to rescue his friend’s family and recover the magical tome. This great read will certainly keep you racing along to its conclusion.

5 Stars

Heather dives right into the world at least one geneticist or conspiracy theorist has conjured in their mind when it comes to altering a person’s DNA before birth. This is a world of intrigue and secrets woven tight with thrills and danger galore.

Lexi Matthews, an assumed name, is a senior at the prestigious and private high school of Wellington. Students at Wellington are there for a reason, they all have parents who are famous, loaded with money, and have a reason to fear for their children’s safety. Students at Wellington are also high on the gifted scale, academically and athletically. Wellington prides itself on a diverse and well rounded curriculum.

When a new student joins the senior class, an oddity in itself, Lexi is chosen to show him around and introduce him at a school dinner when all the new students are introduced. Jack is special for another reason than being a senior when he transferred to Wellington, he is also already part of The Program, a fast track to a medical degree that students at Wellington apply to during their senior year. Already being in The Program sets Jack apart from all the other seniors. When Jack reveals a connection to Lexi and her father, things start to spiral out of control for Lexi’s structured little world of studying and swim team.

Suddenly Lexi is embroiled in a conspiracy regarding her world famous geneticist father and work he did with Jack’s father before they were both born. As Lexi tries to find out the truth, her secret ability to influence the minds of others comes in handy. Jack reveals he is as talented as she, although in a different way. The two have to learn the truth of the research their fathers were involved in before it is too late for Lexi and everyone she cares about. Can Lexi trust Jack even through the secrets he keeps close to his chest? The heart wants what the heart wants right?

I recommend you check out this fast paced suspenseful tale with just enough romance thrown in to make your heart swoon.

Now, fired from her job as an internet help desk tech for being “helpful”, Louise has to find another job and quick. See, even in hell we cannot escape work.
