Sensation A Superhero Novel (ADULT AUDIO)



Jim grew up watching super heroes, and wanted to be one when he grew up, I mean who didn’t at one point in their childhood.  Only thing is Jim had the right stuff to become one, he had super powers, and lots of them.  However, when it became time to try out the  worse happened and he had to go into hiding, Kid Sensation became a Sensation alright, but not in a good way.  But fast forward a few years and now the Kid is just doing things on his own and doing fine, until his mom and grandfather want him to mingle with the other super kids, and that is when things went very wrong again.
This is an awesome superhero book, it is all about superheroes starting out as kids and some of the stress and pressure put on them to succeed.  The character were all so well written and believable in this wonderful action packed, suspenseful, trap set plot that has so many twist and turns you will forget which way it up book.  I had the audio with Mikael Naramore narrating and that made it that much more special.  Mr. Naramore has a way with the characters, he shapes them with his voice so you know who  is who and then sucks you into the story world so you really think you are there right along with Jim and the rest of the gang, it is just wonderful. This is a great book and made that much more awesome as an audio, so if you like superheroes this is a great one for you, I just can’t wait to see what happens to the Super Sensational Gang next.

IN YOUR CLOSET IN YOUR HEAD A MONSTER ANTHOLOGY (ADULT)

This is a wonderful anthology of a bunch a great authors that came together to scare your pants off so snuggle down with your favorite drink and leave a light on tonight and you just might want another person in the house as you read through some of these stories.

The Nightmare of the Bunnyman 
Michael Bunker
This is really one you want to leave a light on for, don't let Mr. Bunker's easy going manner and nice charm fool you this story is very demented. All I am going to say.

Final Entrance
Nick Cole
We all have that favorite Broadway show or opera, and a few not so much, but how would you feel if the death scene turned real one night, but the actor didn't die  just came close but than had to relive that night every day, over and over. 

RE: Revolution and the Radiant Time
A.K. Meeks
What if growing old didn't happen any more, no more debilitating diseases either, would you do it?  What if there was a backdoor, maybe one the developers didn't tell you about, but someone knows, someone always knows these things?  This story is as much thought provoking as it is scary and disturbing, and defiantly not one to miss.

Precious in thy Sight
Kevin G Summers
"Do you know where you are going to go when you die?" Have you ever heard of a succubus? Well let me introduce you to a musician named Galen and his angel/monster/demon that he accidentally downloaded, yep downloaded and is now stuck with.

This is just four of the amazing authors you will get to read in this anthology that will have you questioning if you should add some more night lights around your house and how many.

After Impact (YA)


One hundred years in the future, after an asteroid hits the Earth, Avalon Adams awakes in the HOPE Habitat, but it doesn’t take her long to figure out the plans her father had are not what has happened along with other very strange things going on.  Her father’s last words to her now echo in her head, trust no one, but surely her one friend, Ilium can be trusted, or can he?

Oh my gosh, this book is chalked full of action, suspense, and twists and turns.  I am convinced at times I really did not know which way was up but didn’t care as long as I could keep turning the pages.  This book was awesome and I can’t wait for book two!

Cody the Destroyer King of Toads (MG AUIDO)


Cody is mad because his mom committed him to go to Briana’s birthday party and Cody hates Briana.  So Cody decides to take her a big box of toads for a present.  But when he and Josh go into the swamplands to catch the toads they find a really cool cave.  It is in this cave that Cody finds a secret that will change things for a long time and Briana’s birthday as well.

This book was cute and I think it reminds me most of the books along the lines of Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  I really liked narrator Jon Diienno’s depiction of how things are, and the voices he gave to everyone.  He made me see the story and the world it was happening in through his words and his voice.

Pound of Flesh (ADULT AUDIO)


Roy Morgan, Atlanta detective by day (ok that is a cliché since detectives work 24/7 for the most part, but hang with me) and ½ demon, ½ warlock by night (see sounds good, huh?).  But today he stopped a robbery that turned out to be a bit more than the normal robbery, turns out the robbers where demons too and they were out to get the district attorney.  So Roy and Gary, Roy’s imp, set out to protect and save her, oh did I mention how pretty she is, sorry guess I forgot.

This is an interesting book, it the first time I think I have read a book with a ½ demon ½ warlock cop with an imp sidekick in it, but it worked out well.  There is a lot of metaphors in the story so prepare yourself but you get used to it pretty fast, it becomes part of Roy’s charm, but I have to say I really wouldn’t mind a Gary for BFF, he is always there in a pinch.  The narrator, James Foster, for the audio version of the book does an awesome job, I hope he as well as Roy and Gary are back soon for more demonly disasters.

The Lucky Dime (ADULT AUDIO)


Hobbs is a professional thief, but he takes on this job even though it is not his usual gig.  But when things go bad and the bomb blows he makes plans to meet up with the girl, him reconnect with the girl, what is wrong with him, what was he thinking?  I guess we will have to get soaked to find out, as Soak is the sequel.

This was just a quick novella to get you in the mood for the upcoming Soak.  It was a great intro to the wonderful Mr. Hobbs, and his girl, Grace.  This fast pace action, suspense, thriller will leave you on the edge of your seat and clamoring for more.  I had the audio narrated by the wonderful author himself, I know sometimes this doesn’t always work out but this time let me assure you it did and was very good, and I hope to be able to hear and review more of his audio sequels in the future.

Ren a Monster's Death (ADULT AUDIO)


Ren is back and this time the love of his life is fighting for her life against cancer.  So Ren being Ren has decided to take on God and we will have to see if his journey takes him where he hopes his heart wants to go.  In this, the last book of the Ren series I feel like I am losing a part of myself, I have grown to think of Ren as the monster that lives in me, the one I can’t let out, but that inner voice that makes all the snarky comments in my head that if anyone actually heard I would be fired and have very few friends.  He is the person I wish I really could be sometimes but am too nice to ever be.  Ren you are loved and will be missed by so many more people than you will ever know.  This series has been so awesome and such a wild ride I hate to say goodbye so we won’t.  I hope Lucian grows up really fast so there will be many spin offs and soon.  Also, narrator Tim Campbell, is so great, his way with Ren and these stories is phenomenal, if you have never listen to one you have to give it a go, he really is the best around.  There will never be another Ren Lewis.
