The Antigone Poems

The Antigone Poems by Marie Slaight and Terrence Tasker (Artist)

Described by The Washington Independent Review of Books as ‘terrifyingly brilliant,’ The Antigone Poems is a powerful retelling of the ancient Greek tale of defiance and justice. An intensely personal invocation of the Sophocles tragedy, it questions power, punishment and one of mythology’s oldest themes: rebellion. Click Here to Purchase More »

Knights of the Withering Flame (A Saga of Sword and Stone, Book 1) by Kyle R. Zeller

Knights of the Withering Flame

Reviewed by Timea Barabas

Knights of the Withering Flame is the start of a magical story named A Saga of Sword and Stone by Kyle R. Zeller. It is a book deeply rooted in Arthurian legends, but the branches of the tree flower a fresh perspective. In a way, it is a sequel to King Arthur’s story. It sheds light on what happened to him, and Zeller cautiously weaves together those mythological times with our modern days.

This fantasy adventure novel centers on a 15-year-old teenager named Garith and his unique early graduation. Although he starts out as an average boy, who leads a pretty troubled family life, he escapes into a magical realm where he is far more than average. Kyle R. Zeller draws an interesting parallel between the troubled family life of Garith and the turmoil in the magical realm he enters. While this realm is foreign both to our main characters and our readers, it is still vaguely familiar. The inhabitants and the magical elements that build it are inspired from other fantasy worlds, but they are unique enough to stand on their own. So, there is a sense of a warm welcoming feel despite the chilly dangers lurking in the shadows. Basically, it is about the eternal war between the shadows and the light. But, this confrontation is set on many planes, both geographical ones – where the armies of the two sides fight – and immaterial ones – where invisible forces battle on the field of human conscience.

Christmas Stories from Georgia by Various Authors

Christmas Stories from Georgia

Reviewed by Allen Hott

This is quite a group of short stories, written by Southern writers, including Margaret Mitchell, Ferrol Sams, Joel Chandler Harris, and others. All of the stories in one way or another revolve around Christmas.

The one by Margaret Mitchell is actually a chapter from Gone With the Wind wherein Scarlett realizes just how much she really loved Ashley when he had come home on a short Christmas leave to be with his wife. Mitchell’s writing has always been a thing of beauty and interesting to read as she manages to get feelings across no matter what the story.

Another story tells of the nights before Christmas in a small drug store as one of the workers describes the various other workers’ methods of getting ready for the holiday while each doing less and less work but all enjoying the on-goings of their fellow employees.

Redemption (The Darla Gray Series Book 1) by Tina Marshall

Redemption

Reviewed by Inishowen Cailín

‘Darla, a women destroyed by loss and despair seeks to put an end to her life with all its pain and suffering, but instead of the welcome relief of death she finds herself cast into Redemption; a world where myths and legends are a reality. Demons, Vampires, Lycans and all other creatures of lore not only exist but have walked among us since the dawn of time. But something darker is in pursuit of Darla. Can the enigmatic Quinn save her from a preordained fate, or will his own tortured past stop him from claiming the woman who has set his senses on fire? Time is running out and for Darla, caught in the centre of a battle between good and evil, the cost of failure could bring about the destruction of Heaven itself.’

The Certainty of Doing Evil (A Madeleine Fox Thriller) (Volume 2) by Colin Falconer

The Certainty of Doing Evil

Reviewed by Inishowen Cailín

‘The unique and supreme pleasure of love lies in the certainty of doing evil’

She is naked. She is spreadeagled on a torture rack in a basement. She is dead. Well, this is what happens when you don’t vet your clients properly.

Madeleine Fox supposes she shouldn’t yawn over a naked, dead woman but it is four in the morning and she’s tired. Perhaps she has seen too many dead bodies. These toms should really be more careful, especially if they’re going to specialise in BDSM. It’s not all 50 Shades of Grey and shopping.

The Last Juror by John Grisham

The Last Juror

Reviewed by Allen Hott

One fantastic story about the south and more clearly its residents as can only be told by John Grisham. He writes about courtrooms well but when those courtrooms are located in the south it is just that much better.

The Last Juror tells about a young man Joyner William Traynor who moved from Syracuse after not quite finishing his journalistic degree to the town of Clanton Alabama. This occurs in 1970 when integration was still in its infancy and blacks were not generally accepted in small southern towns.

Shortly after his arrival he gets the opportunity to purchase the small local newspaper that he works for. With help from BeeBee, his aunt, he buys The Ford County Times and begins to make changes from the previous owner’s style (mostly lengthy obituaries).

Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell

Flesh and Blood

Reviewed by Allen Hott

Dr. Kay Scarpetta, a forensic specialist, who seems to work her specialty for everyone from the FBI down to the local medical examiner in her hometown in Massachusetts, is about to head off that morning for a vacation in Florida. Somehow she and Benton Wesley, her husband who is an intelligence analyst for the FBI, both managed to get some time off at the same time.

Strangely enough she has also been receiving some strange vibes beginning with finding seven pennies on her backyard stonewall. All were dated 1981 and all were bright and shiny almost like new. The date is what somewhat rang a bell with Kay as it was almost like someone was dwelling on that year and flaunting it at her. It was the year that she basically took over the care of her niece, Lucy, whose mother wasn’t able to do the job.

What can be the solution? It’s up to the brave (?) adventurer, Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh and his mishaps from Gum Drop Island to boldly (double ?) go where no one has gone before. Yes, they must enter the realm of the forbidding and humuggity shrouded land called Moldy Corners. The next question, dear readers, is – can what happens in Moldy Corners affect you?’

Just Dreams (The Brooks Sisters Dreams Series) (Volume 1) by L.J. Taylor

Just Dreams

Reviewed by Inishowen Cailín

‘Sparks fly when attorney Kathy Brooks agrees to represent novelist Charles Morgan, Jr. in a high-profile suit against a powerful government defense contractor. But when Charles’ hidden agenda threatens to expose the government’s dirty little secrets, what started out as the case of a lifetime could cost Kathy her heart, her career and even her life. Charles doesn’t just want to win the lawsuit. He wants to destroy the company responsible for his wife’s death. His enemies, however, will stop at nothing to make the case go away – and that includes blackmail, kidnapping, and murder.’

A fast paced legal thriller with a little bit of romance mixed in. The characters are like-able and well developed.

Jason Sorren has put his murky past behind him and has landed on his feet in a big way. He’s changed his name to hide his past, has an impressive career and enjoys the best of everything.

But when Jason discovers a note that reveals a connection between two people involved in diverted arms shipments, he puts himself and Ariel in danger. After that the book becomes basically a cat and mouse chase between Jason, seeking the truth and gathering evidence, and the people trying to eliminate everyone with knowledge of the conspiracy. Oh, and there is a love story of sorts between Jason and Ariel.
