REVIEW: AMY'S GIFT [DOOMSDAY KIDS BOOK 4] by Karyn Langhorne Folan I totally love this series! No sweetness-and-light, "everything will be fine," here. This series is every bit as gritty as finely-tuned adult apocalyptic literature. No need for adolescent angst: these "kids" are living the unbearable reality: the Apocalypse has come, swept the "world we knew" away, and the small number of survivors must make their own way, a new way. But apocalypse doesn't change human nature; what an opportunity exists now for the application of greed and control.
REVIEW: LIAM'S PROMISE [DOOMSDAY KIDS BOOK 1] by Karyn Langhorne Folan As a child, I cut my literary teeth on adults' apocalyptic literature: A CANTICLE FOR LEIBOWITZ; TOMORROW!; ON THE BEACH; ALAS, BABYLON; EARTH ABIDES. One consequence of this reading was lifelong phobias; another was an abiding, unending love of the genre--I just can't get enough of it. Third is a need for the vividness, the vicarious experiencing of apocalyptic conditions, that these novels gave me. That experiencing doesn't repeat often enough these days: the field of apocalypse is wide open, but the contenders don't always win. Imagine my utter delight to discover the DOOMSDAY KIDS series! Author Karyn Langhorne Folan is superb! Once again, I lived vicariously; the moments of the nuclear blast--the sights, the sounds, the heat wave--are still replaying in my memory. What a book. What a series.

Straight-A student from the University of Vermont, Leigh Swanson, knew she should never have gotten in that car.
A raucous, booze-filled weekend in Montreal sounded like a bad idea from that start. But, following the incessant nagging from her roommate, she finally gave in— against her better judgement. However, when a half-baked scheme to smuggle illegal substances across the border takes a turn for the worse, the gang finds themselves lost deep in the woods, terrorized by a contagious deadly fungus and hunted by a family of twisted, interbred cannibals.
And these kids are about to discover that, sometimes, the only thing worse than the sickness itself is The Remedy.
THE REMEDY (April 8, 2015, Full Fathom Five Digital) is a gripping tale of a college vacation gone horrifically wrong. In his debut novel with Full Fathom Five Digital, Asher Ellis displays a disturbing knack for campy fun and backwoods gore. It’s Warm Bodies and The Strain meets Spring Breakers, and definitely not for the faint of heart
REVIEW: THE REMEDY by Asher Ellis THE REMEDY is a debut novel demonstrating a tremendous amount of talent, vivid settings, great understanding of character. For many readers, it will be a one-session read, because you won't be willing to stop until you've reached the stunning conclusion. Well, the entire book is stunning: engrossing, thoughtfully developed, shifting subtly from recreation to danger to bizarre Nature to mystery to suspicion to thriller. Frequently I caught myself thinking, "I couldn't have foreseen that twist!" THE REMEDY is definitely one of my personal Best of 2015.

Title: Guild of Immortal Women
Author: David Alan Morrison
Publication Date: November 2014
Two bodies are discovered on the grounds of “The Bastille,” home to a coven of witches who belong to the Guild of Immortal Women. The bodies have strange characteristics, so what follows is a combination merry and sinister romp through ancient history. Medieval times are brought to life through a massive Tapestry adorning the mansion’s walls where the characters — animals and humans — emerge through tears in the fabric.
It is up to Detective Matt Mathers and social worker Lynn Swanson to solve the murder-mystery while dealing with the strange world of magic, Guardian Abbey’s amnesia from her past lives, and the devilish mission of Robert and the Doctor to create an immortal heir through the laboratory.

Bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis writes young adult fantasy novels under the name Kaitlyn Davis and contemporary romance novels under the name Kay Marie. Always blessed with an overactive imagination, Kaitlyn has been writing ever since she picked up her first crayon and is overjoyed to share her work with the world. When she’s not daydreaming, typing stories, or getting lost in fictional worlds, Kaitlyn can be found indulging in some puppy videos, watching a little too much television, or spending time with her family.
Natasha Brown was born in Nevada City, California. Being an only child, she resorted to using her imagination while exploring the forest surrounding her home (a nasty habit she hasn’t been able to break). Her natural interest in fantasy ignited when her parents read The Hobbit to her as a youth, and from then on anything seemed possible. Once awarded with a Hershey’s bar ‘the size of a Buick’ in her high school English class for creative writing, her passion and interest in literature has never dimmed.
She now lives in Littleton, Colorado with her husband, two children, and two dogs.
A little about me – I’m a west coast native who has lived on both coasts and now lives near the middle, in Colorado! Coming from a family of writers and editors, I feel writing is in my blood and hope people will lose themselves for a little while in the fantasy and fun of my stories. I also love sweet red wine, the SF 49ers, and unlike most authors, I don’t have any cats. When I’m not writing, I can be found chasing around my kids or working at my day job, which I totally feel interferes with my real life, but it also gives me inspiration for my books, since reality is sometimes way more interesting than fiction.
I also love getting notifications that people have sent me an email, added me on (like page) Facebook or (friend page) Facebook or on Goodreads. So stop by and say hi – don’t be shy! I’m not! Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
