The Corrupted Kingdom by Jesse Galena MINI BOOK REVIEW!






                                                                   **  Amazon **


Title: The corrupted Kingdom

Author: Jesse Galena

Published: self Published



What if I told you that there is a promise of riches, cures, answers, and justice all at this one kingdom? The only problem is getting to them is easier said than done as the place is riddled with monsters and fears from those who enter. Would you still go?

This story follows different people as they make their way through to kingdom of fears to try and get what they always wanted. They aren't alone as ghosts. monsters, ghouls, and warriors chase them down. Now the question is if what they want is worth the risk of death or going mad inside this kingdom of darkness.



Rating:







Thoughts: I was given this book for an honest review. That being said I will say that I wasn't really a fan of this book. It was a quick read but I found it a bit confusing with the chapter titles and all the people that the book follows. It takes you a minute to figure out who you are with when the next part comes which at times was a little annoying. I will still give it a pretty good rating though since the editing was pretty good, the characters though could use a bit more information about them so they aren't just people that have been thrown into a story. I want characters that are developed / complex with back story that makes me feel like the people are real. Now that my thoughts are down I will say that if you are looking for a quick action adventure / horror story to read then pick this one up, don't let my opinions alone stop you if you if you find this book interesting as it's just my own opinion.

Skeletor's Thoughts on Escape from Witchwood Hollow by Jessica Elizabeth


                                                                     **  Amazon ** 



Title: Escape from Witchwood Hollow

Author: Jessica Elizabeth

Published: Curiosity Quills Press




After losing her parents in a horrific terrorist attack on the Twin Towers, fifteen-year-old Honoria and her older brother escape New York City to Arnn. In the lure of that perpetual darkness, Honoria finds hope, when she should be afraid.

Perhaps the witch can reunite her with her lost parents. Awakening the witch, however, brings more than salvation from mourning, for Honoria discovers a past of missing children and broken promises.

To save the citizens of Arnn from becoming the witch’s next victims, she must find the truth behind the woman’s madness.




Rating:







Thoughts: Spanning over three different time periods 3 women’s stories overlap to create an interesting history and story to the witch. I am sucker for any story with a witch but I get bored with historical fiction. I thought the story was ok, it was slow and you can tell that the author was young when they wrote it. The main character lost her parents in 9/11 and spirals out of control from there trying to deal with the loss. The whole 9/11 aspect was not necessary and it felt like any tragedy would have worked in its place but the author wanted to be edgy. I found the story slow moving and not as entertaining as I wished. The magic and witchcraft was more historical and less paranormal. I feel like it could use some good editing.

Breakable by Tammara Webber BOOK REVIEW!

                                                            Amazon ** Banes&Noble


Title: Breakable

Author: Tammara Webber

Published: Berkley


There used to be a point in time separating before from after. On one side lay everything good and beautiful - a dream that couldn't be touched in waking moments. Memories of my Mother were trapped there, and I fought to forget them Because they did nothing but hurt and condemn. The opposite side was struggle. Endurance. My after was raw reality, and there was nothing to do but survive it.

Landon has been barely scraping through life since the loss of his mother, always being different makes him stick out among his peers. after the loss his father moved them to live with his grandfather in a new town and new school. Landon was an outcast for a while and barely moved through life waiting for the one true love that he has always felt was there but seems farther and farther away with each horrible year. After getting in with the wrong crowd family friends step in to take Landon under their wing with the exception that he gets into the college that the family friend works at. The hard work paid off more than Landon can ever expect since no only did he get into college but he is a tutor for Mr. Heller's eco class who is the family friend, now going by his middle name Lucas and working many jobs to help pay for college things are looking up for him. It was in eco class that he noticed her, Jacqueline Wallace has been driving Lucas crazy ever since the first day of class. He loves everything about her right down to the way she taps her fingers while she is in class, but Jacqueline is taken and way out of his league anyways...now if he can just get her out of his head.

Lucas is losing himself in this girl and begins to follow her around just to be nearer to her, that pays off the night of a Halloween party at a frat house that Jacqueline showed up to get over the recent of her boyfriend. Lucas saw her walk out of the party early and close behind was a male following her. Lucas decides it's time to stop all of this nonsense and starts to leave the party thinking Jacqueline was with the male follower who left behind her. Once in the parking lot Lucas was starting to leave when he heard a loud scream coming from the area that Jacqueline parked her truck. Running to her aid Lucas saves Jacqueline from her male attacker only to be greeted by her fear after the attack. Jacqueline will never be the same after that attack and neither will Lucas because no she notices him and as time passes neither of them can get each other out of their heads.

She notices him as he has always noticed her but with they be enough to be each other saviors from crumbling against the secrets and trauma of their pasts.


Rating:






Thoughts: I would recommend that you read Easy by Tammara Webber first since this is sort of like a companion novel that is told from the males point of view were as Easy is told from the female's point of view. I enjoyed both books equally but this one seemed a bit more heart breaking and left you hurting to comfort the main character Lucas. This story is raw in the sense that it teaches you that not all love stories are all happy ones. I must say that I love the characters very much and I also loved that this book tells you happens at the end instead of just ending like some books tend to do leaving you hanging in the wonder. I would recommend this book to people who want something different in a love story, a love story that stands out among a crowd of cliche books. Tammara Webber will steal your heart with this one.

In the process of trying to track the murder while he was in the process of hunting a new victim Trinity stumbled across a lovely lady in the woods that had been the target new victim. This was no ordinary lady though because 1. she was still a virgin so her pure blood spoke to all the vampires close by tempting them to taste, 2. Trinity's vampire powers such as allure do not work on the lady known as Beth.

Ever since that night in the woods after saving Beth, Trinity can't get her out of his head. Such a fascinating woman that is shrouded in mystery. In the process of trying to figure out who a killer is Trinity can't help himself and is slowly falling in love with the mystery lady he saved in the woods.



Rating:







Thoughts: Though this book was a bit cliche when it comes to vampire novels I still enjoyed the fact that there were some differences between the vampires in this novel and other novels that I have read. That feature alone was enough to make me enjoy learning about these new vampires. It also helps that I found the characters likeable and believeable. I love the four brother vampires and wish that there were more of this book like as a series but don't let that fool you because there were some problems with the book. One problem I had with this book was a very annoying one indeed and it was the fact that almost everytime Beth was around another person in the book there was some part that was describing her breasts in some sort of manner. My other problem with the book was there was a plot pertaining to a certain person that was rather large but the book didn't finish that plot at all which makes you wonder what the heck happened to this main plot?! Those factors aside I did somewhat enjoy reading this book and I thought the love story was rather sweet and different from others I have read about pertaining to vampire couples.
