Hellrose
by Emma M. King



Over the past 150 years, HELLROSE psychiatric hospital has become one of America's most feared establishments.
After being plagued by flashbacks to a terrifying past, a psychiatrist, Dr. Lisa Williams, tries to repair her life by helping a new outlandish patient who has his own horrifying history.


Hellrose is a psychiatric hospital in Nevada where criminally insane convicted patients live out their sentences. It is also a place to evaluate patients to see if they are criminally insane or just lying criminals.

It is up to the main character, renowned psychiatrist Dr. Lisa Williams to do these evaluations.
 After a horrific accident, Lisa is plagued with flashbacks. Going back to work she is assigned a new patient, Harvey Power that needs to be evaluated for the crime of murdering his family.

I will not give spoilers to the rest of the story.

This story had a chilling atmosphere with great character development and a twisted plot. Aside from the proofreading errors, this story is filled with tension, suspense, anxiety, and terror.

Charisse Tarren and the Black Pendant
(A Family Legacy)
by Iuliana Foos

The greatest power one can possess doesn’t come from light or darkness, but from a place of love.

When Charisse and Draxen meet shortly after the peace proclamation in the galaxy, they discover the fighting is far from done. In search of answers, they unite efforts against fate, risking their lives for each other.

The most well known White Templar healer in the galaxy, Charisse Tarren, always felt a piece was missing in her life—her identity and a mystery of darkness. A darkness that she should be able to control. Raised as an orphan by the templars, she lets a vision of family lure her in with the promise of an important discovery in Ruesha.

Lord Draxen Harett, a member of the Dark Circle, is the one initiating the first peace treaty in the galaxy after hundreds of years of war. His parents’ spirits appear before him, sending him to a forgotten world, Ruesha according to his spirits, he was supposed to witness a major event and reflect, as well as act upon, his actions to determine the future of peace of the galaxy. But what he finds is Charisse Tarren in a bit of trouble. As they work together to survive they become closer in understanding each other’s life paths.

Two very different and powerful people from opposite backgrounds and teachings. A quest for identity, a misunderstanding, and a revelation that will rock a centuries old perception to its core. 

It doesn’t get better than that. The story is well written with intense world building. The characters are strong and relatable which makes you root for them throughout the story. It is fast paced, and action filled so much so that you can’t and won’t want to put it down. You will want to read the whole series.

So here it is:

Charisse Tarren and the Black Pendant (A Family Legacy Book 1)

Kalina Theus and the Death Vision (A Family Legacy Book 2)

Adanya Tebbet-Theus and the Dark Mask (A Family Legacy Book 3)

Thane Tebbet Theus and the Chasing Dreams (A Family Legacy Book 4)

Radox Harett and the Lost Daughter (A Family Legacy Book 5)

Mirror Man
by Jacques Von Kat

Twenty-one-year-old, John-Michael is often misunderstood and considered odd or weird.

He feels like he’s missing something in life but he’s not sure what that is. But when he is looking into mirrors he sees everything and more…that most people don’t.

Then one day he sees a strange man in a blue suit that appears in town. A man who doesn’t belong there, and who has a suspicious curiosity for the antique shop where John-Michael works and its owner.

And then his employer is found dead, and he becomes the number one suspect.
John Michael finds himself trying to solve the mystery himself maybe by being overly observant he can find clues others miss. But if he does will anyone really believe him or will the man in the blue suit catch up to him?

I really liked the character John-Michael. He was sweet and entertaining. The plot was good and flowed easily. But the ending was a twist.

Things are always more complicated than they seem.

PREY: Revelations

Book two in the series.

PREY: Revelations
By T. Purcell Dodge



“Gage,” she responded as she closed the door behind her, “as in baggage without the bag,”


If you didn’t read book one in this series called Prey: Emergence then “spoiler alert” Gage is ok.

Bridget “Gage” Grayson thought she was done confronting her past but that was wishful thinking. With the revelation that she isn’t really an orphan because her parents are alive sends her into a tailspin. Now she must choose to trust her father or her family at Prey.

This a complicated storyline that makes you really feel for the main character, Gage. This book is just as fun as the first one but just a little deeper and more frustrating in terms of her relationships.

There is profanity, mild rude humor, and violence in this book.

5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

PREY: Emergence
By T. Purcell Dodge

Book one in series

“Gage,” she responded as she closed the door behind her, “as in baggage without the bag,”

Bridget “Gage” Grayson is smart and witty but a “hot mess” with no family to call her own she makes her own in the Proactive Resources for Evidentiary Yields (PREY). It exists to solve the cases which law enforcement cannot due to red tape, or lack of resources. But after 5 years her past has finally caught up with her. What will happen next will blow your mind.

If you enjoy a kick butt female protagonist with witty sarcasm, cool cars, hot characters, and adorable dogs then this book is for you.

Now I’m going to read Prey: Revelations book to in this series.

There is violence, profanity, and torture in this book.

Daisy Chain
by Julia Vaughan

In 2009, the body of five-year-old Daisy Prospero was found. Her killer has never been caught. Flash forward ten years and a cold case unit has formed to take another look at the case.

Chief Superintendent Lenny Howard asks Detective Chief Inspector Kath Fortune to head up the new cold case team. These team members that pour over the files, Detective Sergeant Ruth Goodwin, Detective Sergeant Shirley Thompson, Detective Constable Marvin Henshall, and Lane Petreus—a psychic who had helped them out on previous cases. Byron Lord has the civilian position with a degree in Computer Sciences & Technology. Justice for the dead and their families. That was all that mattered at the end of the day. That was what they all strived for: results and closure.

I absolutely loved this book. It had everything you need in a book through multiple genres. Action, yup. Mystery, yup. Thriller and crime, it’s in there. The characters and scenarios were realistic. I could not put this book down. I had to see how it ended. Of course, it ended with me out a night’s sleep, but oh well it was worth it.
