The will to survive is in us all, and no matter how bad it gets, deep down, there’s a spark inside us all that wants to fight back, to survive at any cost. And so it was for Terri Dawn.
However, even when you’ve escaped the darkness, a piece of it goes with you. To face that darkness and defy it, or fall under its spell, that’s the real battle. Terri Dawn didn’t know if she could defeat the darkness within her, or if she even wanted to. She’d have an eternity to find out.
“This was a great story that grabbed my attention from the first chapter. Great characters and touching on a subject that there really isn’t any middle ground on. It was good to see how the story changed as it progressed, getting deeper in the emotional and psychological sides. It was fast moving, keeping the story moving and the characters progressing, growing. I wasn’t ready for it to end and I’m looking forward to the next one. Sooo many options and twists it can take. Excellent reading. “
Now for more good stuff. The next installment of the Forgotten Worlds series (SUVI series) is now in the hands of the editors. Look for it to appear later this fall.
And now back to work.
I’ve been promising you something new for months now, and here it is at long last. This one took a long time to write as it touched a few soft spots. Check it out here and see what you think.
Yes, there’s a lot of my life experience in this one, but what parts? I’ll never tell. tee hee hee
Okay, as I’ve said before as I was getting this one ready, this was a tough one and I truly hope you like it.
So, until next time,
Looking for that next great summer read? Try one of these. SUVI, alien survivor taken in by the last human starship. or Lady Blue, the tale of a young woman suddenly granted super powers by an ancient goddess. Who will she become, devil or angel?
Last post I gave you a hint at the current project I’m working on. There’s a bit more to it, as you might have guessed.The story revolves around a woman who dares to rise up and fight back, but there’s always more than one battle to fight. The battle within is always the hardest.
“Even when you crawl out of the darkness, a piece of it comes with you. Even when you defeat the darkness within, it too will rise up again, for that battle will never end. To survive that fight you not only need strength and courage, you need allies.”
We’re putting the final touches on the manuscript now. Trying not to rush this one, I want to get it right. I’ll keep you in the loop as we progress.
This time I read Keeper by Kristine Williams. I quite enjoyed Keeper. The author has come up with a new twist on an old theme. I also love sci-fi and this is good sci-fi.
There was one plot problem that continued to bother me right up until near the end when it was all tied together neatly and made perfect sense. Whew! Keeper has action, suspense, and mystery enough to keep anybody reading through to the end. Also, the constant attempts of the two main characters to understand each other, and themselves, provides endless entertainment. Here’s where to find it.
The one real problem I had with this book was the occasional difficulty in knowing which character was speaking. The odd “he said / she said” would have been helpful. Having said that, I am looking forward to further adventures of Alex and Evan.
I give this book four stars out of five. Happy reading.
