Review Quotes

“Surviving Chaos: End of Days Prequel” by Sam J. Fires
This is a short fast-moving glimpse of how quickly society can disintegrate. Under stress the thin veneer of civility disappears very quickly.
As soon as I completed it, I began “End of Days Book 1” and look forward to reading the whole series.

Picked this prequel as a free book and really enjoyed it. I became invested in the main character, and will definitely be ordering the next book in this series.

As the city spirals into lawless chaos, investigative journalist, twenty-six-year-old Cassandra Drews is forced onto the dangerous streets of Portland to begin the long walk to her parents’ home in Oregon.

Help comes in the form of troubled ex-marine Isaac Winters, who slips back into soldier mode with the city’s collapse.

Now, the trio must work together in a fight for survival as they race to escape the city before violence, or the bitter wintry storm can claim them. Do they have what it takes to make it out alive? Or will they be crushed by the brutality of the unforgiving cold?

BLURB

A disgraced former constable is forced to travel to Freewilds in order to unravel the mystery of The Cult of Ebon.

In a refugee shantytown on the outskirts of a vast and opulent imperial capital city, an insidious sect of demon worshippers, the Cult of Ebon, began to prey upon the Gathered, a diverse group of refugees displaced from their nations in the aftermath of a mad tyrant’s ceaseless wars of conquest, long ago.
 Unwilling to overlook these heinous crimes against a vulnerable, underserved populace, Constable Lukarde Alfans began an investigation that brought him far too close to the truth, leading him to become the cult’s next target. In order to derail his investigation, the enigmatic leader of the cult framed Lukarde for the grisly murder of a woman whose psychic gifts had been invaluable in his investigations.
The disgraced former constable, haunted by the lingering trauma of all he had seen and endured during his investigations, was chased into exile with his life in utter ruins. He must travel far to the southern reaches, to the Freewilds, in search of a new start and, perhaps, a chance to unravel the mysteries surrounding the Cult of Ebon, bringing them to justice, clearing his good name, and silencing the horrors that plague his mind whenever he closes his eyes.

Day 18 #MarchoftheWriters

Digital or Analog

When I saw a Kindle for the first time I thought, they would never take off. I was adamant I was not going near them. I was never going to buy a Kindle. I loved my paperbacks…. However, I moved and there was only one cabinet for my books and so I had to choose, which books, I was going to give away and which series of paperbacks I was going to keep on my books shelf. And I had a lot of books in boxes ready to go to charity.

So, you can see where I’m going with this now. My first Kindle which was a Christmas prezzie from hubby had over 100 books on it in the first week. and I suddenly became an avid reader again.
My poor paperwhite the original Kindle, sadly died on me last year and I have no intention of getting another as I have the ebook Apps on my laptop.
So, I’m a converted paperback reader. The only paperbacks I read now, are my own… Well, I have got 15 of them. lol

What is your choice, ebooks or paperback?

What I don’t like and I’m pretty pissed off about. Is that ebooks were invented to save the reader and publisher money. No paper, no printing cost, no distribution. But then the authors and publishers got greedy. Can you believe The JK Rowling’s last book, cost more to buy as an ebook, than it did to buy a paperback. That is so wrong and not what ebooks were invented for.

Can you feel the Rage?

Excitement beckons in the form of a handsome biker named Shep, who introduces her to the rest of his legit racing club, Rage. However, members of Rage won’t accept Gem until she’s proven herself, and Shep sees her as no more than a trophy for his drugged up ego.
Gem then makes the mistake of getting involved in Rage’s illegal activities, which then lands her back in the arms of an outlaw motorcycle club and a deadly conclusion.

EXCERPT

Two days passed when I got a call from Blade.

“West has called you out. You’re racing tonight. Be at the pub by nine.”

This is what the club had been waiting for. My race against West was gonna bring in some big bucks, and I wasn’t about to lose. I had a name, street cred, and a reputation as a winner, and now West wanted a piece of me. I’d know how much Blade put on me when I got my ten percent, I thought hungrily. I wanted this. I could already taste the victory.

I met up with Blade in the bar and he pulled me to one side.

“You’ve won four out of four races,” he said. “Now I want you to lose.”

I stared at him. “You want me to lose?” I repeated.

“Yes.”

“How much you putting on this race?” I asked.

“Enough. Listen, this is between us, understand?”

“Yes and no,” I answered.

“Don’t make it look too easy. I don’t want Rage accused of fixing the race. It’s got to be a close call. Here’s five hundred,” he whispered and put a roll of money in my fist. No one saw the exchange. “And you still get your ten percent, okay?”

“Okay,” I said.

I didn’t know where Blade was going with this. I wanted to keep up my winning record, but he was the president and, as a member of Rage, I had to follow his orders.

Although there were other members racing that night, mine was the one everyone was talking about and would continue talking about, after I lost the race. I was not looking forward to it. Everyone was rooting for me, and I was about to let them all down, apart from Blade. Five hundred pounds. Five hundred pounds, I kept repeating in my head.

There were loads of spectators already waiting when we got to the rendezvous point. Word must have gotten out.

West was sitting on his Ducati with a big grin on his face and two blondes standing on either side of him. I wished I could wipe that smile off his face, but I knew he’d be shouting about his win for weeks, months even. I turned my sight back to the bike in front and followed the convoy through the deluge of spectators.

I was first up. It was such an anticipated race that no one was willing to wait or interested in watching other racers. I saw a lot of money exchange hands as I suited up. Sitting on my bike, waiting for the flag to drop, my heart was racing. Adrenaline was pumping, but this time it wasn’t because of the coming rush. Inside, I was furious. I could take West. There’d be no contest.

While I was trying to get into the ‘zone’, I pictured another race with West; this time, I won, and as I had lost the last, the stakes had been raised. I pictured myself with a helmet full of notes. A thought occurred. Blade was a smart man; maybe this was just the beginning of the hustle.

As soon as the flag dropped, my bike flew. I was already in the lead, and, from my mirror, I saw West closing the gap. The blur of spectators passed, and then it was just me and the road ahead. I allowed him to come alongside me. It was best if it looked like a dead heat. Man, I was so close, I could taste the victory. I needed to ease off slowly, but my body had other ideas. My grip was frozen.

I could see the finish line. My heart was pounding. My breath stuck in my chest. I managed to move my fingers, and that’s when West’s front tyre overtook mine and crossed the line first.

I slammed on the brakes and skidded to a stop.

“—-, —-!” I yelled, banging my fists on the tank. I wanted to throw my bike down in disgust, but it wasn’t her fault. Instead, I rode over to the side and parked the bike before taking my helmet off and throwing it on the ground. For good measure, I kicked it across the road. Anyone in the vicinity could hear my verbal abuse. They kept their distance. It was obvious I was upset, but not for the reason they thought.

Blade found me leaning against a wall, my arms crossed tight against my chest.

“I know that must have been hard,” he said.

“You’ve no —— idea,” I spat, and then walked away from him.

Doc then came jogging over. “What happened, Gem?”

“He had a better bike,” I said.

“Did he?”

I saw the look in his eyes. He knew the truth.

 “Come on,” he said, nudging my shoulder. “I’m racing next, and I need your support.”

I smiled. He didn’t need me. He had enough support. However, I stood at the starting line to watch him and even put a small bet on him. I knew he’d win for me. Out of elation, I ran up to him and planted a hard kiss on his lips. Doc pulled me to him. His mouth opened, and we kissed fervently. I had never felt anything like it. My stomach turned in a good way. It went right down to my —-. The hairs on my arms stood up, and I swear I saw a spark. I loved the taste of him, and I wanted more. I had never felt so much passion from one kiss. Whistles from our audience broke the special moment. We stepped away but couldn’t take our eyes off one another.

“Whoa!” I spoke.

“My sentiment exactly,” Doc replied breathlessly.

“About bloody time,” Blade shouted.

I don’t know about Doc, but I had a huge grin on my face and was red from embarrassment.

“Come back to my place,” Doc whispered. I nodded and boy, did my heart race.

Ethiopia And The Untold History

I spoke to Dawit Muluneh the author, who is also a Deacon to the Ethiopian orthodox church. His love for religion, languages and his country is to be commended. And he’s still learning, not making it easy on himself. But Dawit feels that he has more to learn, more to say and more to teach others.

He learnt about the history of his country which he left when he was seven. When the calling came, he returned to Ethiopia and lived in a monastery as he studied the religion. Through study and reading books, he learnt about Ethiopia’s rich history. Surprised with what he discovered, he’s adamant that others will learn about the Untold History of Ethiopia.
Dawit is very open and passionate to the cause and what he wants his books to portray.

He’s a Deacon and an author on a mission.

Take a look at some of the reviews

This YA thriller is a great mix between suspense and the repercussions of teen-age bullying.
Billy, the victim of teen-age bullying, goes on a summer work trip in Scotland. She meets some new friends, including Shane, and begins to feel accepted. All seems to be going well, until the bodies begin to pile up. The twists, including the final twist, keep the reader engaged and the pages flying.
This book well-written and engaging. I look forward to reading more of her work.

This is a dark thriller that keeps you turning pages until the end. You see the darkness that everyone has within them and how people cope with how life treats them. The bullying is rough, but dark actions of people bring out the macabre situation of having to get justice of it all. Paranormal twist to this.

This story has subtle meanings within the pages and has a steady flow. I hung on each word and was ready to flip to the next page. An engaging story.

This book had me intrigued. It is smooth flowing and a quick/easy read. I could picture every scene.

Read more reviews here.

‘Karina draws a thin line between FACT & FICTION.’

If being bullied through every school Billy went to wasn’t enough, being attacked in her own home just pushed her over the edge.

Now severely depressed and suicidal, Billy takes matters into her own hands and sees a counsellor. After just one session, she’s now on her way to Scotland as a volunteer to help the Professor of Edinburgh university, dig and clean up an archaeological site that has just been discovered.

Although she tries to shy away from the others, not wanting them to find a reason to dislike her, she’s soon accepted as one of them. Without realising it’s happening, she becomes closer to Shane, a motocross enthusiast who has taken her under his wing.

However, whilst working at the site, Billy comes across an unusual stone. She takes it to the Professor to be looked at, but he dismisses it as a pendant probably dropped by a hiker and so threads the stone with a black leather cord and gives it back to Billy.

Only the peace they once had, the friendships they had all formed, gets tested as bodies start to pile up.

“A suspenseful short supernatural story that kept me hooked right up to the last page – I loved the twist at the end.”
