The Shadow of Woodmyst (The Woodmyst Chronicles Book 6)

HUGEOrange Publication Review
The Shadow of Woodmyst, by Robert E. Kreig

Alice Warde is a young lady who has recently discovered powers she didn’t know she had. And she needs them as her home and world are being threatened by multiple enemies. The Shadow of Woodmyst is the sixth volume in The Woodmyst Chronicles. Author Robert E. Kreig has written an intriguing and absorbing a fantasy epic that is hard to put down.
“And now the colours have appeared again.” Gruloch looked to the travellers. “The Black Witch rules from Woodmyst.” Alice felt her stomach tighten. “How do you know this?” she asked. “The words on the wind speak frequently to one another,” he told her. “I listen to their tales. I listened to how a young girl with strange abilities was shunned by her own and sent into exile. I listened to how that young girl became a leader of a nation and willingly opened her homeland to others seeking refuge. I listened to how she defeated my warriors and frightened my dragons with sorcery. “I so wanted to meet this girl. I needed to see this one the shadows talked about. I must admit that I knew far more about you than I originally led you to believe, Alice.”
Oh yes, there are dragons! In an unexpected event, Alice is given the gift of a baby dragon.
Alice breathed a deep sigh as she looked upon her gift. The dragon inched towards her, lowering its head submissively as it chirped. She placed her hands upon its snout again and rubbed the scales above its nostrils. A soft, soothing rattle resonated from its chest as it fell into a deep sleep. “I have a dragon,” Alice said to herself.

Recommended for those who love fantasy and for those on the fence with this genre, try it. It’s a well-written action adventure by a gifted writer who knows how to write dialogue. He also is a master at descriptions that pull you in and won’t let you out. You’ll be thinking about this story and the well-developed characters long after you’ve finished this book. You could read this book as a standalone, but you will be eager to read the rest of the story. I didn’t want it to end and eagerly await the next installment.

Can an undercover nerd become a superstar agent? Ben Ripley sure hopes so—and his life may depend on it!

Ben Ripley may only be in middle school, but he’s already pegged his dream job: C.I.A. or bust.

Could the C.I.A. really want him?

Actually, no. There’s been a case of mistaken identity—but that doesn’t stop Ben from trying to morph into a supercool undercover agent, the kind that always gets the girl. And through a series of hilarious misadventures, Ben realizes he might actually be a halfway decent spy…if he can survive all the attempts being made on his life!

On The Fault

For those who bring war without necessity
From those who forevermore
Bear it.
A necessary war, what would that be? doubtfully one waged by the most powerful nation on earth against one of the tiniest and poorest; and for some ten years.
We Americans are always acutely aware of our own casualty counts. We have not, however, shown the same concern regarding the Vietnamese, both civilian and uniformed, killed or wounded or driven insane, in the conflagration. One million, two, three millions? 
The opinions and emotions the war triggered divided the American citizenry as few things have.
But On The Fault was not written to address any of these matters. It is simply an attempt to afford the willing reader an opportunity to feel what those who fought in that war felt, in the simple hope that America’s involvement in Vietnam would be properly remembered, so that a future gang of reckless fools at the top might be deterred from repeating the horror of a war that need not happen.
Even wars waged with the noblest of causes breed a kind of free-floating hatred – the trickle-down poison that can pollute and saturate even the most high-minded of nations. What of one fought without even the slightest justification? 
All that killing and mayhem; where does it go?
Whether all-volunteer or conscripted, isn’t it always the little people who carry water for the rich and the powerful? Are you of draft age? Are you registered with Selective Service? Do you have a child or a grandchild of draft age? Do you ever think about the worthiness of our recent wars – these undeclared, unconstitutional military actions? Or do you care? Beware, there could very well be another draft should our adventurism slide completely out of control.

Karma's Envoy (Publication Review)

HUGEOrange Publication Review
Karma’s Envoy by Kevan Houser

Todd is a grown man living in San Francisco in 2013, in love, getting by, just a regular guy. He goes to sleep one night and wakes up as an 8-year-old boy, Peter. It is now 1962 and he’s found himself living in a trailer in Oregon. He tries to make the best of the sudden change, going to school, coping with his new chain-smoking, depressed mother and the strange new world he’s in. Just when he is becoming familiar with the new people and time, he’s whisked back to 2013.
A woman, breathless, burst into the room. Apparently having just stepped out of a fifties TV show. A plainer version of June Lockhart, circa Timmy and Lassie maybe, with permed chestnut hair, plaid Gingham dress, white apron. Unlike Timmy’s TV mother, this woman sported emerald green cat-eye glasses and carried a lit cigarette. I took a good look, then my eyes slammed shut and my head hit the pillow.
He hires a private detective to get any information on the people he had met in Oregon to see what happened to them and if it’s possible to contact anyone. One evening, the detective calls to say he has lots of information on them and Todd would be getting a package the next morning with all the facts. However, when the morning comes, Todd is Peter again.
I surreptitiously studied this vintage mom-bot as I wolfed down my decidedly nonvegetarian breakfast. Who eats bacon and eggs and hash browns for breakfast anymore? Who has time to do all that cooking? She kept fussing over me with her mom patter like I was a fragile snowflake. Reminding me that I was her big boy now. Either she really was my mother, or she was as good an actress as the June Lockhart she vaguely resembled. How could I not know her, not even recognize her? Maybe I’d suffered a weird little-kid stroke that gave me amnesia?
And so goes a back and forth mystery for Todd/Peter who begins to suspect there’s a reason this is happening. There is something evil in young Peter’s life and Todd is the only one who sees it and the only one who could do anything about it. The parts that are in the 1960s are so well depicted that you feel disoriented yourself when he pops back into the modern world.
The condo felt magically big and quiet and clean and neat after living in that dumpy little trailer for three months. And the food! Fresh produce, real coffee, real bread, real cheese, real chocolate. I kept sacking the refrigerator, plundering more and more goodies to shove in my face, stretching breakfast into brunch. Finally stuffed, I poured myself one more cup of Peet’s French roast and stretched out on the sofa facing the floor-to-ceiling window. After so much time away, the view was surreal. I’d honestly thought I’d never see it again.
Author Kevan Houser has written a book with an original concept and a very thorough depiction of a person trying to make sense of madness.  Karma’s Envoy is a book that grabs you from the very start and is genuinely hard to put down.

Recommended for readers of mystery and fantasy. Not recommended for younger readers as there are some graphic depictions of a sexual nature which might be disturbing to some.
