"Killers, Traitors, & Runaways"

A company of seven unite. Heroes not of virtue, but of circumstance. Authur Lucas Aubrey Paynter tells a wondrous tale of Killers, Traitors, & Runaways. I'm surprised to see very few reviews. I really like this writer as I think his idea for the heroes is very unique and his style is great. The plot moves along pretty quickly and while at times this does feel a bit clunky, it doesn't take long for you to immerse yourself in the world. Despite the supernatural aspect of the story, the author…

"The Edgewater Legacy"

Author Wanda Pyle does an excellent job of painting the greed and cynicism of the 1980's music scene. Hidden agendas were brought to light in this page turning, quick paced novel. The flow of the book was natural and not forced, and very well written. For me, the most interesting figure is Chris. He's shown as a man of determination and vision, the capacity for deep friendship, with a need for love. If you enjoyed the first two books in this series, you will certainly enjoy this - even more…

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: "Harder Yet!"

"Harder Yet!"

Police Academy meets Cops in this stand-alone novel that is well worth the read. I enjoyed the characters, especially Ed and Harry. Could any of them find their way in a world of power struggles? I couldn’t stop turning pages wondering what was next for them. Though there was a trial and tribulation in the book it was obvious the characters cared enough about each other to overcome them. The authors brought so many insights. The writing is powerful, humorous at times and gripping at others.

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: "The Worst Journey In The World"

"The Worst Journey In The World"

Set during World War 2, this story is narrated by George, who is on a mission to protect supply boats during the height of the war. There is so much here; suspense, mystery, love, heroism and most of all a historical insight to a very dark time in our history! We get to see the day-to-day living in a terrible place during the war at that time. The author who did an excellent job with this read. It made me want to explore history more and gave me a new perspective on WW2. Excellent and well…

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: "Serch Bythol"

"Serch Bythol"

David Pierson, a young musician, encounters a ghostly figure when his family moves to England. But instead of running from ghosts, he runs into love. I was completely immersed in this fantasy world as the author did a wonderful job creating an exciting YA read with all the works – action, romance, suspense heroes and villains! This book is a page turner that will leave you in the end wanting more.

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: 'Emerald's Ring'

'Emerald's Ring'

As someone who has read a lot of fantasy novels, this story kept me guessing and hoping that things would work out in the end. After finishing this book, I immediately went to find the first book in the series. My only complaint is that is was too short but it had everything a person reading this can ask. It has tense parts, moving parts, and hard to put down. Congratulations Jaylee Austin! You told a wonderful story!

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: 'Hidden in the Dark'

'Hidden in the Dark'

An intense and suspenseful story about family secrets, "Hidden in the Dark" by Rashell Lashbrook had me hooked from the first chapter. I couldn't put it down if I tried! The book was well written, full of excitement, suspense, hatred and love. She captures every feeling imaginable in this book. One of the standouts for me is the detail the Rashell has put into the characters. She is on her way to becoming a notable author. Looking forward to reading her upcoming publications.

'Truth From the Bathroom'

Full of wisdom, goodness, and compassion for those who know the agony and shame of domestic violence. I think people don't understand being in a abusive relationship that's more verbal. This treasure of a book invites the reader into understanding of the view of men that if embraced would radically alter how victims address this heartache. This is a must-read book. If you or some one you know are or may be in an abusive relationship or even just getting out of one this book is for you. This…

'Chinese Education in Singapore'

Chinese Education in Singapore: An Untold Story of Conflict and Change, is an unbiased view of Singapore's history. Singapore's story offers lessons for modern cities as many seek to build vibrant economies and achieve a high quality of living. It is interesting but not confusing. Writing is tight and very readable. Author clearly knows and enjoys his subject. This is a must read for those interested in the subject.

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: 'Thieves of Islar'

'Thieves of Islar'

James Shade writes in a smooth, easy to read style that snares you in, and carries you along to the very end. I have to say that this book was a pleasant surprise! Set in the fantasy city of Islar is a fresh story-line, believable characters, and a couple of nice twists in the mix. One thing that impressed me was the higher level of language that was used in this book. The authors characters are compelling, the settings have both brutality and honesty and the plot has unexpected turns. This…


Roger A. Price manged to keep me reading from beginning to end without taking much of a break! I read this book in two sittings, even staying up most of last night to finish it! Detective Vinnie Palmer and TV reporter Christine Jones are on the trail of an escaped psychopath as he has leads them from one murder scene to another. As the pieces fit together and the frustrating chase to uncover the killer makes the conclusion very dramatic. The story line is incredibly believable, well…

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: '6.42'

'6.4 Squared'

There are only a handful of authors in the world who I would read every word they’ve ever written. John Walsh is one of those. With Irish wit and worldly knowledge, John has put together a wonderfully warm and humourous collection of reflective poems. Several of the poems from John's rich understanding and wisdom about life made me stop, think, reread and really absorb what he said. With a masterful command of verse and a bullish view of life, this book is both special and thought provoking…

The Wild Atlantic Book Club: 'Borrowed Wings'

'Borrowed Wings'

The sequel to the award winning 'Skylark', Borrowed Wings continues where Skylark left off. Billie must find her way forward and Jack must find his way back. But this time the secondary characters from the first book get into the spotlight much more, and that is a good thing. The great thing is this is a book that pretty much everyone can (and will) enjoy. It is funny, tender, thoughtful and thought-provoking - as the layered meanings run deep in this book. This isn't Fargo. It is something…
