Shadows of Past Memories

   





Title:Shadows of past memories
Author:Alexandra Lanc
Genre:Paranormal,Sci-Fi
Pages:190(e-book)
(part of the series:
The Firefox Chronicles)






      What would do if your best friend moving far away? She is like your sister. You think that isn’t right decision…That happened to Aura. She is on a way to lost her best friend Terren. But what really happened with their lives. Strange creatures attacked them. Fear, supplication and tears. Seems they are lucky, they are saved from other beings.
Then Terren reveal that she isn’t what she thinks that she is. She isn’t human being. 
 
     What really happened I asked myself constantly, when I reading this book. Reality, dreams and parallel worlds are mixed in this book.
     Main characters are real girls with real lives, dreams and needs. But in their lives shows some creatures some of them want to hurt them, the others want to protect them, evil creatures and good creatures. The fight between good and evil.
     The creatures: Airian –master of the evil creatures, Ikura –good creature and the others creatures seems to me realistic, when I reading about them like I see them in front of me-Yikes! I feel the shivers through my body when I remind to some of them, specially the evil one. But like I told you there are good creatures too…
     In that disorder in her life Terren learn who she really is.
Ikura and Koren and the other good creatures give her a book, ancient book.
The story in that ancient book is fabulous. I liked so much.
     Alexandra is an excellent narrator. She makes me to believe in this story in these creatures and in their worlds.                     I must say:

Everblossom

Title: Everblossom
Author:Larissa Hinton
Genre: Short stories
Pages: 61

From Goodreads:
An anthology that will quench your thirst for more than the ordinary. 

Everblossom is a journey through poems and short stories that may seem ordinary on the surface but dig a little deeper and the world not only shifts. It changes. 

From the author who brought you Iwishacana/Acanawishi, she now brings you a dash of everything from dark fantasy to the paranormal to even romance. So prepare yourself to delve into the three stages of the flower from bud to blossom then back to seed, you’ll go through them all with a whole new perspective on what it all truly means. 


My review:
“Bud to blossom
till dusk til noon
from sunlight to sunset
do you know the circle of life?
From the womb to the grave
from blood to dust
this is how the world began
and how it shall end
to seed to seed to seed . . .”
        Do you know the circle of life?
This verse telling everything about this short book, which included poems and short stories, and again poems then stories…
   This book is about glory of life, life that begins from seed to blossom, from new born baby to mature men. The stories are so short and interesting like my grandmother tales, exciting and crops of fantasy. Life disperses in any directions and ways just like that the stories in this book surround every topic of life and living.

A Dixie Christmas by Sandra Hill

A Dixie ChristmasA Dixie Christmas by Sandra Hill

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love Christmas story.

This is not a regular Christmas story this is a much more story about love and sex before Christmas.

Two stories one about Clayton Jessup and Annie and the other one about Brenda and Lance.

Clayton is a businessman. He is going to Memphis for selling his hotel “The Blue Suede Suites”. This hotel was belonging to his mother. She abandoned him and dies in Memphis in fire. All the time in this story seems like Elvis Prissily shows up over his songs and over the bizarre group of Elvis impersonators who’ve set up a living Nativity scene on his property. In that group is Annie. Clayton faint and Annie help him.

Clayton is vain businessman that seems right to me, but he falling in love at first sight, that is out of my understanding. I believe in love at first sight but not in that way like is describes in this novel. It’s seems to me not real.

Annie is a cowgirl, sweet and adorable. She still virgin in her almost thirty –is possible, but with her “activity” in one night with Clayton- I don’t know.

Other story is about Brenda and Lance. They were in marriage and now are divorced. Lance tries to make things right and get back Brenda in his life, not just for him and Brenda, but for their young daughter, Patti.

I like this story more then first one.

Brenda is real women how likes to do things right and don’t forget easy when someone

cheats her.

Lance is a big star in NASCAR. He was been not responsible and he was big trash with his women.

Angel Evolution

Title:Angel Evolution
Author:David Estes
Pages:186(e-book)
Genre:Fantasy,Angels,Young adult
(part of trilogy)



My review:

       My first thought was “o my God, it’s a horror book”, but isn’t just Taylor (main character) had a bad dream…This book is a tale of one evolution, an evolution of not human beings, and an evolution of angels.
        In this book is a fantastic story how is generated special species (The Beings):
 “In 1846 a young men Clifford hiking in Amazon jungle was attacked by one black snake. Clifford was mutated in some being. Since that day started generations of angels, demons and other creatures.” 
      Gabriel’s (interesting name) actions could change the course of history
forever. Gabriel is an angel and he is in a college when is involve with other college students like an ordinary boy. When Gabriel and Taylor meet it’s not by accident. Taylor notices his strange glow over his body as no one else did.
      Taylor is a college student. She is a girl who don’t like to pretend and want to be “Just-a –Taylor”, don’t wore a make up and she isn’t a fashion girl. Taylor have a nightmares every night when she closing her eyes.
       Sam is a Taylor‘s best friend. She is an opposite of Taylor. She is a cheerleader and she is that kind of girl who breaks every boy heart and girl in every boy dreams.
Sam likes to makes friends. She is found a Marla, a girl in next door.
 There is interesting mixture of characters and there relations.
       As classical philologist I’m impressed by author’s knowledge in classics, especially in Greek mythology. He uses a geek mythology name for example: Dionysius and uses a Latin phrase Seize the day (Carpe diem).
   Reading this book it was like a watching movie. I hardly wait two other books from these trilogy.

My review:

 I was looking for some good chick-lit book which made me laugh and I find this. I’m not disappointed.
   Its look like Abigail-main character speaks with reader.
I feel like a have conversation with her that is so intimate and its good feeling.
     Abigail learns how to enjoy in her singledom after breaking with her boyfriend, Peter. She learns how to date with boys and try not to be boring. She is so funny and I enjoy in every single word that’s coming out of her mouth .Good job, Gemma!
    Ah, Robert is a charming man. I adore him. Robert is a flatmate to Abigail; he helps her by giving her advices like how to seduce a boy and how to be a single.  
    Plum-I just wanted to shut her mouth. She is the best girlfriend to Abigail, but she is so chatty and she swears too much.
   Sophie is a small sister to Abigail. How lovely! They are like friends, help each other and appreciate each other.
   There are more characters I choose these because I liked them.
Real book and appropriate for every part of year, for every generation, for every taste. You will enjoy in this book. If you like funny, interesting and chick-lit books just grab it and read it.
