Today I'm hosting Jesse Teller on my blog, with a short story about music and life.
Some Distant Sunrise is a powerfully emotional, dark tale of addiction, second chances, choices and life. One the writing makes even more real, where you can almost feel the needle's cold, metallic touch on your arm, the biting cold of the night and feel the pressure of the world as it closes on you, taste the desperation in the air.
Then There Were Crows is a fast paced, enjoyable read - if you have a certain kind of humor and don't mind some violence here and there. This is a rather dark, horroresque urban fantasy with unique characterisation and promising ideas. With some improvements here and there (editing, writing - see my complaints above) this series can grow into something good and worthy of attention all fans of horror, dark fantasy, urban fantasy and everyone in between who like their story with a good measure of snark and violence.
Song is an action driven dark fantasy with a medieval like setting, mages fighting for revenge, for the nation, for everything worth figthing for.
My promised second interview, which was supposed to be the first. @benedictpaddy stopped by and we've talked about the Yarnsworld books, writing, @CritFacedDnD and #SPFBO of course.
"Shattered Dreams is like a treasure hunt where you don't get rubies and diamonds, but some important pieces of information masquerading themselves as unimportant pebbles."
"This story is like a great song which makes you feel calm, angry, happy, sad, surprised with its melodies and lyrics."
Aching God by Mike Shel, a thrilling, dark, cleverly written debut novel which deserves all the attention it can get. Read it people, because it's good!
At last but not least the third review dedicated to someone who got me where I am today. An intriguing, dark tale wrapped in a rich mythology. You don't want to miss this!
My second review of the three dedicated ones. My first plunge in the unknown, the first book I volunteered to read in exchange of a review. Never thought it would turn out as a huge impact on my life 🙂
