Line Blurb

In a world where the Gods walk and their spirits commune with mankind, there must be those trained while in a trance to intercede with them, for the good of the tribe.
Mondoani, a young woman, is chosen by the Gods to take the place of the Old Mother upon her passing. Is this frail young woman strong enough to carry the spirits of the Gods? Can she learn quickly enough to save her people from possible famine and death?

For it will be her responsibility to carry the memories of all those who have passed from this life and to help protect and lead her people across the dead lands and snowy plains to a place they can safely spend the winter. But before she can accomplish that she must choose an apprentice from among the young girls and women, someone who can take her place should she fall.

Will Mondoani’s youth and inexperience condemn the tribe to death or will she rise above it and with the help of the magical world choose correctly?

The Keeper of the Memories

Bishop gives us the story of the tribe and its Memory Keeper. The Old Mother must soon pass from the world, and she chooses Mondoani to take her place. She must care for her people in their harsh land. The tribe and its land is painted with care, and their story is crafted with care. The people live lives that to us are exotic, and their traditions and way of life are alien. The reader sees a life that entices him into a new world and time. Well done!

Sesame, an old woman in frail health, is trapped in the attic with no explanation. A woman and her two small girls live on the first floor, none of whom pay the old woman any mind. Though she tries calling out, banging on walls, and stomping on the floor, her cries for help go ignored.

Michael Bussa is the best horror writer in a long time.

Bussa surprises me with every book he writes! This one was no different, and since I love ghost stories I knew I would love it!
This book deserves more than 5 stars. It had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through. The ending I did not see coming!

Enjoyable short story

I enjoyed the style of Bussa, the story is interesting and very enjoyable. I think if you like light horror, you might enjoy it as much as I did. I am looking for more stories like this one now!

The Dragon’s Sacrifice: A Breath of Fyre Novel (The Never Lands Saga) by Andi Lawrencovna – #Horror, #DarkFantasy, #Romance, #Fantasy

No one knows what came first, man or dragon, but throughout history, man feared the great fire-breathing beast, terrified of its breath and its claws. Man ran long and far from the winged serpent until he came to a land rich and fertile, green where the dragon’s lands were blackened with the ash of its fire.
The dragon didn’t follow.
Until now.
She was out picking fruits to see her people through the winter months, innocent in her adventuring, never expecting to come upon a beast in the woods, one so great and mighty he was more myth than reality.
He frightened her, and in her fall, he saved her life.
Why would a creature, reported to be the very basest of evils in the world, stop to save the life of a girl he didn’t know? Couldn’t care about?
How could she not return the favor when his life came into question by her people?
Ciandra, Daughter of the Darkness, Elf of the Forest.
Trinigon FyreBreath, the Great Red Dragon.
A forbidden affair that could cost them their lives, but how can they say no when the Dragon’s Sacrifice has no fear of the flames?

A short story, set in the small, fictional town of Now, Indiana, circa 1940. A man, Troy, returns to his hometown after ten years, when he is diagnosed with cancer in his prime.

Distraught, Troy visits a local antique store on Halloween night, hoping to find something to comfort him in his last weeks. He stumbles across a painting so compelling, he must have it, at all cost — he must have it…now!
Soon, Troy learns there is something more to the painting than he bargained for. Something diabolical.

Great short story with a unique twist.

If you are a fan of the twilight zone, you need to pick up the many books by Michael Bussa. He is a storyteller with a mind that is a bit twisted but in a delightful way. Step into ‘Antiques by Lora’ a special gift shop. That’s what Tony Price did and now his life will never be the same. The author takes readers on a great journey into the macabre in such a great story with a fantastic twisted ending. As always, grabbing a book by this author is like settling down and telling horror stories in front of a raging fire with an old friend and always well worth that trip.

There was a time before Prince Christophe was born when the worst fate his people had to worry about was war with their troll neighbors or an invasion from elfin forces beyond the woods. But that was before he was born and was cursed.
If he dies, so to do his people.
Such a simple phrase, so oblique, and yet Kit has lived his life in fear of the prophecy, searching every shadow for assassins come to get him.
Until she came and took up arms in his defense.
Warrior and witch. Assassin and priest. She was his teacher and his protector. His friend. The only woman ever to run from him at the end of a ball, and the only woman he ever asked to stay.
But Eli is an outsider in the human world, and trusted only so far, even by the man who desires more from her than her skill with a blade. The longer she remains with him, the more she falls for her prince in a world where her prince’s life is the fate of his lands.
As the time of the prophecy draws near, Eli and Kit will face more than dwarves and shadows to find solace with each other and salvation for their people.
Sometimes the one most suited to protect you is the one who holds the sharpest blade.
And there is no sharper sword than:
The Captain.

Great Second Installment

This was a great second installment by Andi Lawrencovna. I was lucky to be able to read both books in this series back to back. The only downside is now I have to wait for the next book.
I loved all the process Kit made in this book and Ella is her normal badass self.
We see Ella and Kit get closer as they are struggling with their feelings for each other. I hope in the next book they stop resisting their feelings for each other and just go for it.
