The Red Sun Rises

Published by Crushing Hearts & Black Butterfly Publishing


Eren Anderson is a freak among freaks. At 17 years old, he doesn’t fit in with his peers in the tiny town of All Hallows and despite being born into it, he most certainly doesn’t fit in among The Order of Our Mother, the secret nature worshipping society that has harnessed the ability cast spells and believes vampires are not only real, but their deadliest enemies. Eren is turned into a vampire after an attack by the local coven master, but that is the least of his worries…

In a post-Twilight world, “The Red Sun Rises” is a YA novel intended to give vampires their bite back but it should not be read as simply another vampire novel. “The Red Sun Rises” is a story about growing up, responsibility, falling in love, facing your fears and taking fate into your own hands.

Grade: A+ (Five Bold Stars! 6 if it were possible)

Alright, let’s start by saying, I didn’t even know what this book was about when I bought it. Cover looked cool, and I was hanging out at the release party and wanted to support the author! No freaking idea what I was in for, then as I’m hanging out with my NerdGirl group, they needed some reviews, so I said sure, I bought the book, I’ll write a review for them to post.

So I’m reading this book, causually.. getting into the story.. when I realize I’m completely lost in it. I mean, basically almost miss my stop on the bus lost. Dying to read it after work even though I’m totally beat lost. This book grabbed me without my knwoledge and kept me. The work is written beautifully, it’s described well, and the plot is well thought out and organized. There’s no technical flaws to this book at all, that I could see anyway. But that’s not the only reason I gave this book 5-6 stars!

Eren is a beautiful character. He is such a breath of fresh air for the vampire genre. This book mixes literary fiction with vampires, and brings us something unique, touching and action filled. This book isn’t wimpy, it stands along with other vampire novels, but this book could also stand it’s ground with a John Green novel with the wonderful amount of actualization the characters go through, and the way they make the reader feel. This book mixes charming coming of age story with a kick ass vampire / witch story. She takes both world and pulls them together perfectly. I couldn’t have loved it more. This is not your average romance, this romance between two men is touching, simple, and completely grounded. It’s a great message, a great moral, and so incredibly interesting.

This is the kind of YA novel we need now, this is something I wish I could see on every shelf, in every store, in all libraries and schools. This book makes a statement. It’s a book for all of the outcasts, the people who didn’t fit in for whatever reason. This book makes sense to them. It’s a story about being an outcast, fitting in, making your own choices, and standing up for what you believe in. There’s so much to this novel, comparing it to any other vampire novel, especially Twilight would do nothing but dim it!

Look past your preconceptions, keep an open mind, and experience this wonderful piece of YA fiction that is great for teens and for adults. This book needs to be read, read it, and share it. Buy a copy for your friend. You won’t regret it. I can’t wait to buy a paperback of this book, and keep in on my table! I want everyone i know to read it.

Thank you Victoria Kinnaird for writing something different.

P.s: We have a favorite band in common two. She mentions two bands at the end of the book. I like the one, but the other is my favorite band as well!

Angry at the human race and its methodical destruction of her resources, Mother Earth recruits souls who have just left their bodies to serve Her, and turns them against humanity.

Amidst the chaos, a forbidden relationship between a human girl, Violette, and Onyx, a lead Gemini, begins. They will both find themselves in the middle of a revolutionary war that will either save, or destroy our world.


Grade: B+

This book is so unique.  I saw the cover and I wasn’t sure what to think, and then I read the synopsis, and I was hoping for good things. I love to see originality in writing. Too often we find ourselves reading books we swore we’ve already read because people keep recycling plot ideas, character themes, and general settings. I’m glad to see this author decided to step out of that phase and write something so different and unique. It stands out among so many other fantasy books because it’s presenting something I haven’t seen before!

As a novel itself, this book is well written, organized and has clear plot points. I think that the many conflict in this book was quite interesting. I never imagined Earth as so revengeful. The grabbing of spirits and turning them against the human race really appealed to me. It’s such an easy way to create an army, and how to do you spot a bunch of souls?

The romance is this book is good. Not too over the top, but not just thrown in without a clear purpose. The reason the book got a B+ (basically 4 stars, and not 5) was because I felt like there was so many more to explore outside of the relationship that I would’ve liked to address. Not that forbidden love isn’t interesting and complex, but it’s a bit too cliche for such a wonderfully original concept of a book, so that’s the reason it’s one star less, and that could be my personal preference. Don’t let this one reason hinder you, because overall, this is a wonderful book. Smart, organized, well written, with a new plot, something that hasn’t been addressed before.

Check it out, i don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Review: Stripped by Jashida Wilder



So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? Simple: desperation. When you’re faced with being homeless and hungry or taking off your clothes for money, the choice is easier than you’d imagine. That doesn’t make it easy, though. Oh no. I hate it, in fact. There’s nothing I’d like more than to quit and never go into another bar again, never hear the techno beat pulsing in my ears again, never feel the lecherous gazes of horny men again.

Then, one day, I meet a man. He’s in my club, front and center. He watches me do my routine, and his gaze is full of hunger. Not the kind of desire I’m used to though. It’s something different. Something hotter, deeper, and more possessive. I know who he is; of course I do. Everyone knows who Dawson Kellor is. He’s People Magazine’s Sexiest Man alive. He’s the hottest actor in Hollywood. He’s the man hand-picked for the role of Rhett Butler in the long-awaited remake of Gone With the Wind. 

He’s the kind of man who can have any woman in the entire world with a mere crook of his finger. So what’s he doing looking at me like he has to have me? And how do I resist him when he looks at me with those intoxicating, changeable, quicksilver eyes? 

I’m a virgin, and he’s an American icon of male sexuality. I’m a stripper, and he’s a man used to getting anything and everything he wants. And he wants me. I know I should say no, I know he’s the worst kind of player…but what my mind knows, my body and my heart may not.

And then things get complicated.



Grade: A++

Absolutely wonderful! At first the book started out slow and then it was like BAM! Her mom had cancer and was sick and then she’s gone. I ached for this girl because I know what its like to watch someone you love die from cancer. It sucks and is devastating. I was impressed though when she still went off to college and when her scholarship ran out she did what she had to, to make things work. She tried to just work as a waitress but they didn’t make enough. She starts stripping and is disgusted with herself even though she’s not doing the other things that the people at the club ask. Then she meets this man who changes everything. At first she’s hesitant and then they are both so drawn to each other. This book was amazing. I finished it in one night. I couldn’t put it down.

Thank you Jasinda for the advanced copy! Your writing is amazing!!

Review: Epiphany by Christina Jean Michaels






***Mature Content Warning*** 17+ for sexy adult situations, language, and disturbing subject matter

“I had my first psychic dream when I was nine. Psychic implied power, and powerful wasn’t a word I’d use to describe myself. I couldn’t foretell the future or conjure visions at will, but I couldn’t think of a more fitting word to describe what I sometimes saw in my dreams.”

For 23-year-old Mackenzie Hill, tossing her life down the garbage disposal is easy after a painful incident shatters her life. Her heart is bleeding, and moving to Watcher’s Point is a chance to start anew, only she isn’t prepared for the guy who walks out of her dreams and into the flesh. Literally . . . because she’s been dreaming about this sexy stranger for years.

Mackenzie is even less prepared to face the dark nature of her dreams. They’ve turned disturbingly gruesome, full of blood and murder, and when they begin to coincide with the media’s headlines, she and Aidan realize her visions might be the key to stopping a madman from killing again.

Only Aidan has painful secrets of his own, and perhaps the biggest danger of all is falling for him.





Grade: A+

I started reading Epiphany by Christina Michaels today and I finished it this afternoon. At the beginning I wasn’t sure how I felt about the book. Then as I got to know the characters and started to really get into the plot I really started to enjoy the book. This book was a great read and I am so glad that I got to read it before it is available. It held twists I wasn’t expecting. Mac and Aiden’s relationship was inevitable. I had no doubt when he started coming to the bar that they would end up together. The back story of Mac and Aiden’s life was one I wasn’t expecting and I think that is why I enjoyed this book. There were things I wasn’t expecting and I love a book that keeps me on my toes and makes me not want to stop reading. This book was one of those. I am looking forward to the second book about Logan.

This is a wonderful book, and definitely one that needs to be bought in a paperback copy, and displayed! Wonderful!
