Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Water Skippers by Jennifer Julie Miller in exchange for an honest review.

It was my pleasure to read Water Skippers. Reading a book written in oral form was a new experience and I had to stop and remember this when I wanted to get fussy about grammatical issues. This is the way the book is supposed to be and I couldn’t take issue with it.

Water Skippers by Jennifer Julie Miller is a delightful story that contains enchanting little water bugs filled with magical powers.

This story is so hard to read in the beginning but also filled with wonderful moments. It is easy to read and easy to follow and if you don’t fall in love with Eden and Kyle, I don’t know what I will do with you! I highly recommend you read Water Skippers.

Jennifer Julie Miller is an amazing author with a mind full of magic and I see a phenomenal future in her calling to write beautiful stories.

I give Water Skippers by Jennifer Julie Miller five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

About the Author

IMG_0175

This was my first novel. I laughed and cried, writing Kyle and Eden’s story. This has been a lifelong dream for me, and now I can say I finally finished it. I Review for 17 authors in my spare time, and I’m an avid reader myself. I believe there are Dragons, unicorns, and multicolored kitty cats, because our imaginations are our own uniqueness.

My hobbies are gardening, reading and aggravating my wonderful husband.

Life is our own book, how will you fill your pages? If you have a dream, pursue it, we only have one life!

My books are written a little differently than most authors, I write mostly folk lore, and these are mostly in an oral format.

The Twelve Stitches of Christmas Book Review @DebraParmley

The Twelve Stitches of Christmas

by Debra Parmley and Robert Arrow

 

banner

 

A handsome knight and true love are the recipe for breaking the evil spell that enslaves Carolennea, all in time for Christmas.

 

Genre: Christmas Fairy Tale Romance

 

About the Book

Ensorcelled and enslaved by her evil uncle, Carolennea has lost her sweet voice and sews the impossibly beautiful clothing he sells in his tailor shop. But this yuletide season will bring a new customer: a handsome knight for whom she will brave her uncle’s wrath—and who in return will help break the spell. Sir Ardin will set free her fingers, her voice…and her heart.

12Stitches

Excerpt

Burning. Her throat was burning and raw with heat. Her breathing labored as she gasped for air, cooling air to ease her pain.

He moved off of her and stood scowling down at her, his hands on his hips.

Water, wine, anything to stop the burning. Please.

She reached out to him to implore him, trying to speak, to beg for something cool to drink. Her mouth and tongue moved as if normal, past the burning pain, yet not even the smallest, lowest whisper of a word floated past her lips.

Alarmed, she tried again. Then she screamed— a silent scream that raised not a sound in the forest. Carolennea, the girl with the sweetest songbird voice in the village, had lost the ability to sing.

Hot tears rolled down her face as she mouthed, “What have you done to me?”

Uncle Trad laughed and moved off, toward the village, throwing his words over his shoulder. “Get home and to bed, wench.”

From that day on, though she was but a child, not even a half-grown girl, he would only call her wench, never by her own name. The rest of the townsfolk would soon learn not to address her at all.

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of The Twelve Stitches of Christmas by Debra Parmley and Robert Arrow in exchange for an honest review.

It was my pleasure to sit and read The Twelve Stitches of Christmas by Debra Parmley and Robert Arrow. It is a very short story that takes no time at all to read but contains all the best, and essential, elements of a fairy tale.

I was caught up in Carolennea’s story from the very beginning of the story. I hated Uncle Thad from his first appearance on the scene. She is the most sympathetic of “damsels in distress” and he is the most despicable “villain”. This story is one of years of abuse and neglect portrayed by Parmley and Arrow crafted in the most vivid terms.

The Twelve Stitches of Christmas by Debra Parmley and Robert Arrow is a delightful Christmas fairy tale and I applaud this writing duo as the twenty-first century’s Brothers Grimm.

I highly recommend The Twelve Stitches of Christmas by Debra Parmley and Robert Arrow and I give it five piping hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

Redemption: The Rending Book Tour

Redemption
The Rending Book 1
by Cara Carnes
Genre: Paranormal Romance
 
Barnes & Noble | http://bit.ly/RedemptionBN
 
 
Mira grew up in a savage tract of existence known as Hell’s Highway—a parcel of land for genetically impure humans (Impures) cast out during a savage battle between humanity’s government  the NAH) and the Paraspecies. When a cease fire was declared, the two opposing sides retreated, regrouped, but the fight for survival had just begun for Impures forced to exist within a kill or be prey existence.
As a runner for The Alliance, Mira ran messages and provisions back and forth between her camp and Redemption—a bartering outpost created by the Paraspecies to help Impures within Hell’s Highway. But for the past two years Mira has been a prisoner of war, detained and tortured in an unsanctioned NAH facility within the lawless lands of Hell’s Playground. Now free, she must risk her life to fulfill a promise made to a fellow prisoner—travel to Redemption and enlist the aid of the Paraspecies. Returning to the outpost, though, means reuniting with the Alpha wolf she’d once hoped to have a future with.
As Quadrant Alpha of the most dangerous section of Paraspecies land, the last thing Adrik needs is the Impure from his past suddenly returning after two years. He ripped Hell’s Highway apart searching for her two years ago, and his pack reaped the consequences of his shattered soul. Now, with a civil war threatening on his southern border, the constant battles with the succubae on his eastern border, and the latest command from Headquarters to assume the role of Alpha Commander, he doesn’t have time to wander around Hell’s Playground searching for a secret facility no one believes exists.
But the temptation to spend time with the Impure he’d once intended to mate proves too tempting. Together they must heal the wounds their time apart created and find a way to survive the dangers awakened.
