Review: The Last Conversation

Audible narration by Steven Strait (The Expanse)

What’s more frightening: Not knowing who you are? Or finding out? A Bram Stoker Award-winning author explores the answer in a chilling story about identity and human consciousness.

Imagine you’ve woken up in an unfamiliar room with no memory of who you are, how you got there, or where you were before. All you have is the disconnected voice of an attentive caretaker. Dr. Kuhn is there to help you – physically, emotionally, and psychologically. She’ll help you remember everything. She’ll make sure you reclaim your lost identity. Now answer one question: Are you sure you want to?

Paul Tremblay’s The Last Conversation is part of Forward, a collection of six stories of the near and far future from out-of-this-world authors. Each piece can be read or listened to in a single thought-provoking sitting.

Review: Dungeon Seeker: A Reborn Online LitRPG Adventure

I might be level 99…but I’m still a noob.

That’s Zane’s permanent nickname for me after I managed to lose the glitched item that dragged us all to the next endgame world. Just when we uncovered the mystery behind the Dark Lord Coin, I managed to find a secret world of Game Masters that have been pulling the strings.

Everything was fine…. Until one of them started messing with the universe code.

Now everything is at risk – and this time Zane is on my side. He power leveled me, and now he needs to teach me how to maximize my skills as we face the battle of our lives – or rather, our afterlives.

We’re in for a wild ride.

Dungeon Seeker is Book 2 in a LitRPG / GameLit series Reborn Online, filled with unique monsters, challenging crafting quests, and skipping the grind with some much-needed power leveling in an endgame world that’ll make you look forward to the afterlife! Just…we recommend building up those stats up first.

Review: Surviving the Theseus

Regina, trained to find the dregs of humanity, trained to kill, is forced into vacation because her peers are getting murdered.

At first, the massive cruise vessel she chooses as her resort destination seems…tolerable, and then, in the span of a few hours, everyone disappears, thousands of passengers vanish.

As Regina explores the ship, not only does she discover pile after pile of clothing and no bodies, she finds a fear not felt for years. Although she cannot know for certain something is there, an ominous orange light appearing out of nowhere leaves little doubt some unseen thing hunts her. And all that is just the beginning.

It is a time of restricted space travel so enforced that almost nobody can veer off course, but nobody knows why. They’re about to find out.

Get ready for a sci-fi/horror/thriller roller-coaster ride.

Author’s note: This novel contains strong language, violence, and a sexually described event. If this novel were a movie, it would be rated R.

Review: Siren Rises

When darkness descends, devouring all light and life from the world, what hope is left?

The scales have been tipped, someone else’s blood has been used to rise Ares, and the war between The Gifted has arrived. Now, there are Fae hunting Evangeline. Their only goal is to sacrifice her to their one true leader.

Forced to flee the academy, she must embark on a hunt of her own to acquire a scythe. A long lost weapon that will not only strengthen her powers, but is the only hope she has in defeating Ares. However, she is not the only one searching for it.

She must learn to combine and control the darkness and light within her. If she doesn’t, she risks being consumed by the very darkness she was born with. Putting not only her own life at risk, but also those of the ones she loves.

The apocalypse is spreading, with the presence of evil growing stronger with it.

Review: Siren Dreams

You can’t escape reality, when your enemies haunt your dreams.

All her life, Evangeline dreamed of finding her purpose. Now that she has, she is certain that she doesn’t want to fulfil it. Especially not when it could tip the scales in the war, that’s brewing between The Gifted.

Evangeline must travel to the Fae communities to convince them that, although there is darkness within her, she is on the side of light. Tensions rise, trust is betrayed, and those closest to her might not have her best interests at heart. The very darkness that she wields seeps its way into her dreams throughout her travels. This time, someone new enters them. Someone that seems to be trying to communicate with her. Is it a warning of danger to come, or simply an unending memory of her failure to rid the world of The Veils leader?

Review: Siren Calls

A search for answers. A long-held secret. A call to destiny.

If you knew your life was about to change for better or possibly a lot worse, would you still go looking for answers?

Evangeline is an orphan, with no memory of her life before she wound up in a children’s home.

Now at 18, she is free in the world, with a burning desire to unravel the mysteries of her past. What she unlocks changes her life forever.

The Fates take her out of the only world she has ever known and into the lives of the gifted.

Is it all she ever dreamed of, or were the nightmares that have plagued her for the past 10 years about to become all too real?
