Wanted to let you all know

My computer has crashed and I am using my public library. It is very slow and very time consuming so I will only be on at least once a week if that. Until my computer gets fixed if you have any questions or need me please email me at foamfamily08@yahoo.com or you can find me on facebook. And I will get back to you as soon as I can. My reviews will try to be done as soon as I can get to them. Please please bear with me. Thank you so much for being understanding.

Just Another Night by Nathan Squiers

Image
Synopis:

A graveyard in the dead of night.

While most would avoid such an eerie setting, for three friends looking for a safe place to toke up, it is the perfect place to get high without getting caught. Unfortunately, for these stoners, fate has given them more to worry about than nosy cops.

In the blink of a bloodshot eye, all hell breaks loose... literally.

As forces beyond the friends' perception and control turn a calm night in a marijuana-haze into a terror-filled bloodbath all hope seems lost. But there's far deadlier beings roaming through the headstones, and a Crimson Shadow soon eclipses the carnage.

Talk about the ultimate buzz-kill!


Comedic disclaimer:
Remember, kids, don't smoke weed, or a zombie will smash your friends' faces into tombstones and eat them right before a gun-toting vampire puts an enchanted hollow-point in your skull

Magic Murderer by Nathan Squiers

Image
Synopsis:

The world of magic is unified by a single truth: "The arts have tainted you."

For one man--a man corrupted by power and driven by a lust to kill--the price of his pursuits for power has become both a reason and a means of destroying lives. As this madman quickly discovers, the potential for murder and maiming are almost infinite when a flick of the wrist or a blink of an eye can rip flesh and snap bones, and the creative means of slaughtering innocents is a blood-red and limitless sky.

With fragmented thoughts and distorted truths festering in the twisted mind of this magical maniac, a sadistic killing spree ensues. As his campaign of carnage takes its toll on a family there seems to be no end to the bloodshed in sight…

… until he finds himself bathed in a Crimson Shadow.

Life was good and the future was bright for up-and-coming heavy metal band, Bloodtones. With a steadily-growing fan-base, the five members looked forward to a promising career in the music industry. And then things went to hell. Soon after a strange sighting, the Bloodtones' lead singer, Bekka, finds herself capable of the impossible and in mortal danger from otherworldly forces that catch even the non-human members of the band off guard. With their rock-solid future rapidly crumbling before their eyes, the Bloodtones find themselves struggling for not only their music... but their very lives.


My Review:

I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

Nathan has once again wrote an amazing story. This is the first I have ever read about a rock band that deals with the paranormal and I truly enjoyed it.

The rock band Bloodtones is not your average band. There is a werewolf named David, a vampire named Will, a sorcerer named Derek and two humans Bekka and Brian.…

Synopsis:

Few would see Las Vegas--"Sin City": the gambling capitol and center for greed, lust, gluttony, and debauchery--as an ideal place for a dedicated Christian to vacation. However, with her closest friends promising a relaxing getaway and an insistent husband, Rachel is given no way to avoid the trip. Besides, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

At least that's what they say!

But when her vacation takes an unexpected turn and finds her in the dark clutches of unholy forces, Rachel has no choice but to carry her Hellish burden out of Sin City and back into the loving embrace of her unaware and unsuspecting family.

Is Rachel strong enough to resist the dark forces and see that her family remains free of their curse?…

Synopsis:

"The scars we wear are a constant reminder of what we've suffered through; of what we've survived. But the scars of every fight, every sacrifice, and every mistake are only skin-deep."

For Xander Stryker, the "Crimson Shadow", this truth is all-too obvious, and though his vampire body will not scar easily, he still wears the reminders left behind from his human life. And while it's simple to see the history of abuse and self-destruction on Xander's body, it's the scars he wears on the inside that haunt him the most.

Despite having left the human race in a previous life, with a little mot…

My Review:


I received this book to give an honest review.

There are 13 short stories by different authors. There were a few authors I have not heard of and the others I am a fan of their work. There were 3 stories out of the 13 that were okay. Those 3 stories just did not appeal to me. But the work of each author was great, there were some stories that I wished would go on a bit longer since I really was getting into i…
