It’s been seven years since the world was consumed by flesh eating corpses. 

After plane trouble, Luther Kilwins, the man who caused the outbreak, finds himself trapped in a Montauk bunker.

His only hope for survival… General Frederick Maxx, the man who wants him dead more than anyone else. Maxx sends his top soldier, Jacob, and his team out to rescue Kilwins from the far reaches of Long Island.

The team faces numerous obstacles: a boy disguised in blood, a fearless leader set on ruling the island, and waves of undead following them. Jacob will learn that staying alive isn’t his biggest trial. It’s holding onto his humanity.


Robin's Review: Death Cleanse is a thrilling read from beginning to end.

I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

A black hole is coming for Earth, but that is only the beginning of Miranda’s problems.

She thought life in the Trash Lands was bad, scraping for food and water, wishing she could blend into the sea of ash. But when she learns her mother was right, Earth will get sucked into a black hole, Miranda must trust in skills she never knew she had to get to a place she refused to believe existed. When she finds an idyllic new world, to Miranda’s surprise, she cannot turn her back on the suffering on Earth, but will she risk it all to save a doomed world?

Robin's Review: An interesting dystopian story with Earth and another world.


This was a compelling read about a character faced with tough decisions. This was a fast pasted quick read with a different and interesting plot. The characters were well written and likable. I highly recommend this story to all ages.

Charisse Tarren and the Black Pendant

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)

What would you do if you fell into a world you created yourself?

The Twin Stars

(The Coseema Saga)

The Twin Stars (The Coseema Saga)
By Bridgette Dutta Portman

What would you do if you fell into a world you created yourself?

What if that world turned against you?

Olive Joshi is an imaginative sixteen-year-old with OCD and all that entails but she finds solace in writing stories in a journal about Coseema, a magical princess on the distant planet Lyria but unwittingly creates a real world that drops her into it. What? I know right?

Can Olive be the hero of her own story?

I find the character, Olive so relatable. I like how her specialness is written with kindness and sensitivity making the story more realistic if that could be said for a fantasy book. There is very unique world building that brings the world into sharp focus.
