A Whisper In The dark
by Guy Quintero

The Agency is recruiting brave souls to solve the murder of Sara Duncan. This mission has a high probability of vector contact. Survival is not guaranteed, and neither is your sanity. Welcome to the depths of shadow and madness.
Ghost Team spearheads the operation, led by Emmerich Steiner. What was meant to be an investigation leads them into a web of terror run by demonically possessed individuals and their willing servants. Em, along with his brothers Badrick and Fredrick, his fiancée and second in command, Callisto, and the rookies Calvin and Evan, battle the forces of darkness in a brutal life or death struggle.
Robin's Review: Guy Quintero has done a great job integrating a ton of creatures into this story without making it feel overdone. Nothing is off-limits in this debut novel. The world-building is rich and descriptive, without any unnecessary words. There are a lot of acronyms, but they're easily explained through the rookie's eyes.

The plot focuses on Ghost Team, a badass team of soldiers who work for the USA - Unholy Slaying Agency. It's their job to eliminate supernatural monsters that plague the world. There are Lycanthropes, Ghouls, Zombies, and more – Oh My!

It crosses many genres and has everything you could want in a book. I loved the little Easter eggs he writes into the story, like, Roanoke.

The next in the series is Book Two: The Cannibal Peaks. This title will be released on October 18, 2022.

Sam is telepathic and knows the aliens are coming. The problem is he’s also a zombie and no one trusts him.
Sam needs to find allies who can help him find the proof that the aliens exist and are invading the Earth, before its too late to prepare for the invasion.

Before Sam can do that, he’s got to escape the base he’s trapped in, but his every move is being watched by Michelle, who will use any excuse to lock him up and toss away the key.
Robin's Review: I read this right after book 9, and all I can say while shaking my head is…WTH aliens? If it’s not bad enough, this poor guy is a zombie, but he knows aliens are coming to invade Earth. Wow. I sure don’t want to live in this book. It was well written, a quick read, and very enjoyable.

It was just another day on the farm for Sue and Jared; another day of chores, arguments, and trying to figure out how to keep the farm. Then the zombie apocalypse happened.

One he’s not sure he wants anymore.Both brothers will have their loyalty and faith tested in a battle as old as time—light versus dark, good versus evil—as each discovers the true meaning of sacrifice.

Robin's Review of
Life After: The Line of Duty
by Bryan Way

In times of crisis, few bear a burden more demanding than local law enforcement, but even as a zombie apocalypse wreaks untold havoc, the undead are the least of their troubles.
Spread thin in the wake of a calamity, the remaining officers at the Broomall Police Department are faced with dwindling resources and manpower in a losing effort to contain the scourge. As state and government agencies fight to enforce a quarantine boundary prior to an impending evacuation, the station is mistakenly identified as a rescue center, forcing Lt. Arthur Gilchrist and a handful of cops to determine whether their new arrivals are trying to escape the mayhem or take advantage of it.Set during the events of Life After: The Arising, Life After: The Line of Duty examines the fortitude required to protect and serve the public in an unthinkable circumstance as well as what it means to maintain order when chaos becomes the status quo.
Robin's Review: I really liked this story. Bryan Way has come a long way no pun intended since I reviewed his first book in this series. His writing is tighter and more descriptive with deeper characters. He really nailed it with this one. Overall, this is a quick and satisfying read.

More is coming from this creative author with maybe another short story and a third novel sometime in the future. I can’t wait.

Books in this series:
Life After: The Arising (Book 1).
Life After: The Cemetery Plot (Short 1)
Life After: The Basement (Short 2).
Life After: The Phoenix (Short 3)
Life After: The Void (Book 2).
Life After: The Maze (Short 4)
Life After: Zugzwang (Short 5)
Life After: The Line of Duty (Short 6)

In the Midst of Magic

Rating: 5 out of 5.
In the Midst of Magic
by Christian Cura

Meet Kara Hartman, a photojournalist who is hiding her magic from the world. 
Traumatized by her brother's death, she wants nothing more to do with magic. But just when she thought she could neglect her gift, it becomes apparent that the universe has other plans for Kara. When she discovers that an old foe has broken out of prison, hellbent on destroying her new life, Kara has no choice but to embrace the only power that can stop her.
Trigger Warnings: Violence is prevalent throughout the story, and there is occasional profanity. There is an explicit scene between two consenting adults, and references to bullying and cheating.
Robin's Review: This is so many genres combined that I’m not sure what to call it. It has action and adventure. It has magic and sorcery. It has romance and betrayal. It has murder and suspense. Finally, it has thrills and coming of age aspects. It is well written and fast paced with a hint of urgency to see what happens next. And there is always something happening. The world building is rich and descriptive, and the characters are fun and relatable.
All in all, a very good read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Urban Fantasy reads.

The friends she makes bring her understanding of the world around her crashing down. They’re like her. And they aren’t … human.Digging deeper, Leah finds the answers her mom kept from her all these years. Her dad didn’t die in a tragic accident.

Fleeing a besieged palace and pregnant with Leah, her mom turned to the human world, where they were forced to live in hiding.Wanting justice for her parents and the kingdom they once ruled over, and yearning to know how it feels to be amongst people like herself in a realm flooded with energy, Leah forms a plan.Her ticket to learning how to enter the Green Lands, how to use her powers, and how to get in close proximity to the murderous queen—is one of her new friends. He may be handsome and sweet, but Leah’s objective is clear. Date him. Get an invite to his brother’s wedding, which the queen will be attending. Take care of business.The queen has to die.
Robin’s Review: This is the fourth installment in the Seeder Wars Series. It comes with many revelations for Leah and some complex emotions that she has to deal with. What she does with these revelations makes for a great story. This was another fantastic read from J Houser and a lovely and entertaining continuation of this series.
