The Binding (Unexpected Magic Book 1)

One cursed diary will change two strangers forever…

Merideth Monroe was born to a wealthy politician; luxury was her middle name. The happiest childhood, the finest schools, and landing her dream career; her future couldn’t have been brighter. She didn’t care that her mother wanted a different path for her; but when her mother is murdered and she appears to be next, nothing in her flawless life will matter.

Rider Bradshaw lived a carefree existence. Ex-military, he only wanted out of his family’s shaded history and chose to leave the sins of their past behind. However, when a girl he’s never heard of is placed in his charge by his father, protecting her becomes his obsession and keeping her safe his only reality.

Can Meri and Rider use her mother’s old book to figure out why someone is after them? Or will the guilty party succeed, ripping the tome away before killing them and then slithering back into the darkness…

The Wicked Awakened (Unexpected Magic Book 2)

A five-hundred-year-old witch wants to steal Sarah’s body

Morcant and Blake Korrigan own a little shop of horrors, where witches congregate and people ending up dead isn’t rare. When Karen Hiltzman joins their coven, she has no idea what she’s getting into. Drawn in, the group convinces her to recruit her best friend, Sarah Matthews, after discovering that she bears a very special birthmark; one that indicates she’s the girl they’ve been waiting for.

Morcant is eager to reincarnate a witch put to death by an angry mob five-hundred-years prior, and unleashes a spell; a dark and sinister curse. His ritual transforms Sarah’s body and will bring Brenna back to life when it’s completed.

Blake wants to help Sarah stop him; but will he be strong enough to defeat his elder sibling, and if he does… will he let her go when it’s done?

Who was after her and how did they seem only a half step behind them as the two flee?

The Binding kept me wondering. Merideth and Ryder meet at her mother’s funeral. She’s feeling guilty for not spending more time with her mother and the way their last visit ended. Ryder didn’t know her mother but his father did and was a close friend, or so he said. No one had ever seen them together and she hadn’t spoken of him. When the man and her own father agreed that her mother’s death may be foul play Ryder was assigned to protect her.

Who was after her and how did they seem only a half step behind them as the two flee?

There is an attraction between these two never-gonna-get-in-another-serious-relationship people. Neither wants to admit it even though they come close a few times.

While I did enjoy the book, I was unable to care about Merideth. Her better-than-you attitude was off-putting. Ryder was easier to like, however, with the mystery not allowing us to delve into their personalities too closely it wasn’t easy to be on their side. I did enjoy the story and if you are looking for an interesting mystery with a couple and little steam this will fit the bill.

Jan Romes (Review for audible book)

Truly enjoyable!

Truly enjoyed this audio version of Hidden Realms. The narrator – Brian Richard Robins – has such a smooth voice. The authors, Marta Moran Bishop and Patricia Moran, wrote three stories that transported me to other worlds for a very short time. I loved all three stories but if I had to pick my favorite it was the first one with Ed and Yla (spelling?). Their story was one of true love. I don’t want to give too much away because you have to read or listen to their story to get all the sweet particulars.

I really enjoyed reading it!

It’s a very thrilling story and I loved how unexpected the ending was. A very well-written novel that I enjoyed reading a lot.
Rider and his father are attending the funeral of someone his father knew a long time ago. He doesn’t understand why his father has brought him here when he didn’t even know these people. Apparently the deceased was someone special to his father and now his father wants to help the family uncover secrets that are better forgotten.
Meri has just lost her mother. She is still in shock and grieving when she meets Rider. Suddenly, two youngsters are thrown together due to unexpected circumstances. It seems that Meri is in danger and for some reason Rider is appointed as her bodyguard. On the run, as they spend time together not only they learn more about their past but also pave a path to their future, a future that neither of them had anticipated.
It’s a fast-paced novel. I liked the flow of it and the characters too. I think that it is a very good start to a promising series. Also, it is a bonus that the book can be read as stand alone.

FOREVER HAUNTING

The story has all the elements of a good scary story. The author has a way of leading you to believe that you can predict the ending, then – BAM – he throws you for a loop at the ending! This chilling tale is frightening. It reminded me of an old Chicago tv show called Creature Features.

The Void by Marta Moran Bishop – #OccultHorror, #OccultFiction

Animated GIF-downsized_large.gif

Line Blurb
The Void, the first true paranormal short story written by Marta Moran Bishop, is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock or the Twilight Zone of later days.
It will take you deep into the mind and heart of someone either living through a serious mental illness or something mysterious and dangerous resides in the void.
Many years before, Altori and her sister Helen moved into the village. Last year during the night of no moon Helen went out into the void and nearly died. A terrible disease spread through her body. She ran away to escape the possibility of death at the hands of the frightened villagers.
Will Altori survive the void and find her sister? Did Helen ever exist or is Altori suffering from a mental illness?

I really like it. It kept your interest with Altori trying to find her sister that she lost in the void and to go through some horrendous things along the way. Altori was treated badly because of (what I thought was) being different. The narrator did a good job with the different characters and you could tell who was speaking.
