Book Review - Edge of End by Suren Fant

Book Review
Edge of End
by Suren Fant

Book Description
What I'm going to say sounds crazy, but what is life without craziness? I woke up a new man; I'd been reborn, before me a new fate with only the blackness of nothingness behind. I had no memory, only the emptiness that lay ahead. Ask yourself, what would you do? Some will say my story is crazy, most of you won't believe it, but this story must be told. Before I start I have to say one thing - this story has changed my whole life. 

Jonathan wakes up in a desert, his past wiped from his head. He's alone having no clue who and what he is, where he has come from and where he should go. There is only one way - forward when he spots a little town in the distance. 

Empty streets, old houses, the town seems abandoned. There's no one to ask for help, there's nowhere to go. Jonathan wanders the town in search of any sign of life trying to bring his lost memories back, but odd visions haunt him from time to time. Soon Jonathan comes to the realization that he's moments from death as absolutely evil dwells in the town seeking fresh souls to suck up. The seemingly dead town is only outwardly empty. 

Grey skies, no sun, no days and no nights. The town is stuck in time. With only one entrance and one exit, but the way leading to the exit is filled with creations that Jonathan has never envisioned, even in his worst nightmares. 

Who is he? Who brought him here? With a female resident - Elizabeth, Jonathan has to work his way through the horrendous town, figure out his past and find the exit.

Our Book Review
A really thought provoking novel which will make you think a lot about how you react and behave to others. The story begins with a man lost in the desert and his only way out of it is to head for the town.  On arriving in the town he has no memory and has visions, each vision prompts thoughts of his past. He then meets a lady and a mentor who has been stuck in the town since he had died. The main character then realises that he has one last chance in the town to prove his worth before he is cast into hell. 

The book is very well written and uses the town and houses in it as the problems and the hurt the person has caused and to get through and redeem themselves to be given another chance. 

The message that I picked up from this interesting novel was why wait till it is too late to put things right,  face and tackle the problem and move on.  The outcome of tackling the issue may not to be your liking but at least it has been dealt with, giving you the freedom to tackle the next one with a clear insight and making the correct decision. 

A thought provoking novel which is very cleverly written around an issue that we all think about on a daily basis.
Our Rating

About the Author
Born and raised in Yerevan, Armenia, Suren has been interested in mystery and fantasy stories and movies from an early age, that's why in the books and short stories he creates there is always an unpredictable mystery.

Suren doesn't like stories with unreal and predictable happy-endings. The end of any story should have sense which makes the book better and real.

Suren started writing when he was sixteen. His first novel, called "He", is only available in Armenian and is free on the internet. In 2011 he decided to translate his writings into English for a bigger audience. Translation isn't easy work to do, it's more difficult than writing in English from the start. In 2013 Suren gave up translating and began to write in English at once. Now he writes the same book in two languages.

Every time watching a new fantasy or mystery movie, or reading a book, Suren wonders how far a human's mind can go. Every time, he feels that there is still a long place to reach, a long way to pass. The world outside of Earth is much bigger.

It's too difficult to reach any American or British agent when you live far away, but Suren didn't give up and one day he received an email from a publisher who was ready to work on his novel. That novel is called "The Godless", and is Suren's favorite out of all his other writings.  Suren still lives in Yerevan with his wife and son.

SIGNED BOOK Giveaway - Improbable (The Cohorts, Generation Next Book 1) by April Alisa Marquette - 2 Winners !!

SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY !!

Celebrating the brand new ebook release of this hot romance
Two Lucky Winners will win a SIGNED BOOK of Improbable by April Alisa Marquette!!
Open Worldwide
Ending on Thursday September 18th at 11.59pm est

In Improbable, a story of love and coming of age, readers get to watch Gemma and Jeremy grow up and become a power couple. Undeniably riveting and sexy, readers will never see certain twists or turns coming…

She is a lingerie model, one that fuels the dreams of millions of men the world over. Second generation Hollywood, she becomes a successful actress and a chart-topping movie producer. Her name is Gemma Janelle, and rumor has it that three influential men are deeply in love with her. This is her story.

He is über sexy. With a French accent and a fiefdom fit for a king, he alone is the heir to two fortunes. He is Jeremy Baptiste Harden. Brooding and often filled with angst, he is the man atop Gemma’s A-list. Yet there are times when he would rather not love her. He is also sick of seeing her likeness in the tabloids – with other men, but he remains a slave to his heart.

She all but clawed her way out of a dark past; now she wants to live in the light, the spotlight to be exact. However, Gemma Janelle occupies that spot. Fresh from the backwoods, bottled-blond Ashlee is nobody’s bimbo. Boobtaculous and determined, she vows to break Jeremy away from that black chick Gemma. Then Ashlee will get everything she has ever dreamed of, right?

See how feelings can become twisted and thereby take a wrong turn – or two.

This is no kid’s book! If you’re an adult reader who loves a story that is layered, a story that builds to a crescendo and arrives at an unforeseen conclusion, this is the story for you. If you like a little surprise every now and again, if you want sensual, and tawdry, if you want to laugh, and think ‘that is a mess,’ then this is the tale for you! Author April Alisa Marquette’s ‘Cohort Trilogy’ is a ride! Now in IMPROBABLE, she introduces the next generation -- and boy, are they naughty!

BOOK TOUR - Seaside Hearts by Melissa Foster, Book #2 Seaside Summers, Love in Bloom Series #22

SEASIDE SUMMERS BOOK 2 COMING SOON.....
The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

SEASIDE HEARTS
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

Book Review - The Point by G Nykanen

Book Review
The Point
by G Nykanen

Book Description
Befuddled by her current relationship woes, Nora Reynolds leaves college at semester’s end to drive north of nowhere to her hometown of Iron Bay. Vulnerable and on the rebound, she is the perfect prey for fledgling felon Dane Buchman. Dane takes advantage of the unaware young woman, feeding his appetite for mischief until a rather violent shift in their relationship reveals to him what he’s really been craving. Driven by his new found hunger, Dane feels unstoppable, until former high school rival and town deputy, Doug Sanders, navigates the trail of Dane’s destruction. 

The Point is a dark thriller that will allow you to witness a truly dangerous sociopath wander through madness guided by a treasured family heirloom, and a pensive young woman find her way after discovering, that which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. With echoes of the Coen brothers’ Fargo, the folksy town of Iron Bay and the nearby north-woods community of Deer Lake are the destinations for Mr. Buchman’s many misdeeds.

Our Book Review
A very hard hitting dark story with explicit descriptions of a sexual nature as well as the dark side of a person's mind.  The story revolves around Dane Buchman and his desires to take what he wants using any means possible, his actions impact not just on the people he hurts but the town he lives in as well.

The results of Dane's actions lead to a very good insight to how victims minds are affected by tragedy.  The author portrays a story of innocence against evil and how difficult it is to get to the truth and prove it when it is one persons word against another.

I found this book to be a very gritty and enthralling read.  I think the author was very brave in their writing and should be applauded for following their instinct to give the reader a real insight in how sociopaths think and react, this adds flavour and content to a good read.  Due to the use of the explicit descriptions, which are essential to the story, it will not be to every readers liking.

On the other side of the tale is Dane's victim and the author again illustrates how with a lot of love and caring people around you and with their patience you can pull through life's trials and tribulations and live a normal life.

The Point is a dark thriller which will take you on a journey which will open your mind and want the bad guy to be caught and put your arms around his victim and protect her.

Our Rating

About the Author
G. Nykanen was born and raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This small, rural land mass seems to cultivate a wide variety of colorful characters who provide a plethora of inspiration. The Point, Nykanen’s first novel, is filled with nuances of these local characters and the landscapes one might find in the north woods.

Well traveled thanks to her husband’s government career, she has lived in Europe and many of our United States over the last twenty years. She has recently returned home, moving back to her beloved Upper Peninsula where she resides with her husband and three children.

With The Point now completed, she will continue working on her next novel, Accumulation, along with continuing to develop other stories in the works.

Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster, Book #1 Seaside Summers, Love in Bloom Series #21 ebook Giveaway - 5 Winners !!


NEW RELEASE SEASIDE SUMMERS BOOK #1 
The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.

SEASIDE DREAMS
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series
