Book Reviews and Suggestions

So as many of you already know, I am an avid reader as well as a writer. Recently I read two very excellent books. Well actually there have been more than two, and if you are interested in my reviews you can go to my Goodreads page and check them out.

The first book I highly recommend is The Legend of the Winterking: The Crown of Nandur by J. Kent Holloway. Not only is it the perfect book for the holiday season, it is new and unique. Here's the official book description:

It is the end of the Age of Rome, and the beginning of a story that will last forever.

The story of a hero named Krin, whose flight from Roman Legionnaires takes him to a strange and wondrous land deep in the the wilds of Germania.

The story of the mysterious valley called Thana Pel, where the Magi of old stand watch at the chasm that separates the world we know from the world we only dream of...The land of Wyndter, the realm of the Fae.

The story of the quest to find the Crown of Nandur--the last remains of a majestic and ancient creature, as old as the world itself--a talisman that can bind the worlds together, and awaken an army of long dead dragons, buried deep in the heart of Thana Pel.

To save our world from the evil schemes of renegade magus Sair'n Kryl, Krin, accompanied by a rag-tag band of unlikely heroes, must recover the Crown of Nandur before the gates of Wyndter open, and the world of mankind is subjugated by the dark faery empire of the Winterking.
Holloway is one of my favorite authors and has some other great stuff out there so be sure to check him out.
The Second book I am recommending is a new series by another great author, Flood Rising (A Jenna Flood Thriller) by Jeremy Robinson & Sean Ellis is an amazing thriller and will keep you on your toes. Here's the official book description:

In a minute, everything changes.

Fifteen year old Jenna Flood’s discovery of a bomb—ticking down from sixty seconds—is the first in a series of explosive revelations that destroy her understanding of the world and her place in it.

Jenna believes she is an ordinary teenager, busy with schoolwork and helping her father run a Key West charter boat. But when a team of killers show up, intent on erasing her from existence, she learns the unbelievable truth: she is not who she thinks she is.

Alone and on the run, betrayed at every turn, Jenna’s path takes her from sun-drenched Key West to the alligator-infested Everglades, the streets of Miami and the Caribbean islands. Along the way, brutal criminals, deadly assassins and the forces of nature conspire to end her life, unless she can rise to embrace an impossible destiny and unleash her own lethal potential.

Everything Jenna has been told about herself is a lie, and the truth is a secret that may destroy the world…or save it.

Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the bestselling team behind The Brainstorm Trilogy, Prime and Savage, have thrilled audiences with stories of science gone wrong and monsters on the rampage. Now they break new ground with a taut suspense thriller sure to appeal to fans of 24 and The Bourne Identity, with all the pulse-pounding, gut-wrenching action you’ve come to expect.
So there you go, two great books to get you through the end of the year!
