Overkill [Kindle Edition]
Steven Shrewsbury (Author), Joshua H. Leet (Editor), Matthew Perry (Illustrator)
Deliverance will come… A great flood once wiped clean the earth, destroying everything upon it. Before the deluge, in a time now forgotten, the world was a place of warriors and witches, conflicts between kingdoms, and, until their extermination, dragons. In this world, men may live centuries, fallen angels have begotten terrifying spawn, and sometimes, the best hope can be found in a brothel.
In the land of Transalpina, a new religion spreads, and important men are dying mysteriously, slain by what can only be the fire of dragon breath. Summoned by the Queen Garnet, the legendary warrior Gorias La Gaul returns to the place where he once saved the queen’s young granddaughter from treachery and enslavement. The Princess Nykia is gone, and soon others may try to claim the throne. The queen has little choice but to turn to the only man who ever told her no.
With the aid of one of the queen’s elite guard, the battle maiden Alena, and the young palace servant Orsen, the old mercenary will face pirates and traitors, monsters and foul magic in the quest to find the missing heir and learn the truth behind the disconcerting murders. Deliverance will come for Gorias La Gaul, but for now there are women to love, secrets to discover, and killing that needs doing.
Review of, Generations by John Reinhard Dizon
John Reinhard Dizon is one of the most gifted writers that I ever read. It was a pleasure reading Generations. His smooth eloquence in transition carries a touch of Dickens, a hint of Hemingway, and a dash of Orwell. However, Dizon has a gift of style all his own which eclipses the talents of most modern day writing artist. I look forward to reading more of his works.
Generations is a compelling story of not only a family whose loves and tragedies span the ages, but of a world growing from the pains of Roman occupation of Britain to today’s chaotic world. The characters burst with life and speak naturally with bountiful words and deeds. I scarcely began the story and it’s over. I was immersed from the very start right to its end. You will find heartwarming scenes that move you to a sigh, and comic relief thrown that will have you chuckling. And of course, tears will flow as age, time, and wars provide back drops for this soul inspiring tale.
I recommend reading this story along with the many others John has to offer…I can’t wait to read the next story following from the mind of John Reinhard Dizon.

James Rozoff (Author)
While Dave Morse is busy during the day pursuing his dream of becoming a famous magician, at night his dreams are pursuing him.

While this story follows the events from The Amazing Morse, it is intended as a standalone novel and is a good entry into the world of The Amazing Morse.

Savage (Jack Sigler / Chess Team Book 6) [Kindle Edition]
Jeremy Robinson (Author), Sean Ellis (Author)
For more than a hundred million years, the Dark Continent has kept a savage secret.
While on the trail of a stolen tactical nuclear weapon, Jack Sigler, callsign: King, and his black ops Chess Team, answer a cry for help. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is on the verge of exploding into another bloody civil war that will engulf all of Africa and put millions at risk, a crisis too politically volatile for any outside nation to touch. As the team, unfettered by political constraints, deploys across the globe, the threats spin out of control.
A search for the Congo’s missing president becomes a quest to solve a century old mystery, and uncover a secret that powerful men will kill to protect. A mission to rescue a team of scientists from violent revolutionaries devolves into a desperate run through the jungle, pursued by both modern man and ancient beast. And the effort to stop a revolution becomes a brutal contest, pitting King against the most cunning and sadistic foe he has ever faced—a deadly mercenary known as the Red Queen.
King has traveled around the globe and across time to protect the people he loves. Now, he must face a harsh truth: he cannot save everyone.
Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the bestselling team of The Brainstorm Trilogy and Prime return with an action-packed tale rivaling the best of Matthew Reilly and James Rollins. Savage is a fresh re-launch for Jack Sigler and the Chess Team, so if you’ve never tried a Jack Sigler thriller, this is the perfect point to jump in and enjoy the chaos. And if you’re a long time fan, welcome back, and prepare yourself…
Highland Passage [Kindle Edition]
J.L. Jarvis (Author)
What would you risk to find love?
Mackenzie Cooper has had it with romance. On her way home from another blind date arranged by her well-meaning sister, she is caught in a snowstorm. While maneuvering the twists and turns of the icy road, Mackenzie loses control of her car and crashes into the rocky hillside.
When a rugged Scotsman pulls her to safety, Mackenzie is sure she must be hallucinating. Through the storm’s fury, he takes her to shelter in one of the mysterious stone chambers scattered throughout Putnam County, New York. Snowbound, Mackenzie must wait out the storm with this strange, kilted man who claims to be a Highlander from eighteenth-century Scotland. By morning, she not only believes Ciarán MacRae’s story but has also lost her heart just in time for him to kiss her, promise his love—and then vanish.
Unable to forget him, Mackenzie returns again and again to the stone chamber, hoping to unlock the secret of Ciarán’s disappearance. But if she does, she will have to decide whether her fierce feelings for Ciarán are worth abandoning all that she knows to travel through time to find her gallant Scotsman.
If my window was shattered by life,
Would you stay? Walk out the door,
Never look back,
Would you stay?
Help me glue the peaces,
Back into the frame,
Would I be left behind just sitting?
Alone in the glass of life,
Hoping that everything will be alright,
While I sit staring,
Out a broken window of life.
