Flyte : Had A magical Entertaining Start, But Sadly Loses Direction
Okay this time around the book is Flyte by Angie Sage. And yes this is the one of cheesey wizards fantasy books that is only founding the colorful kids section of book stores. It’s two inches thick and made to look like spell book and neighbors Lemony Snicket and James and The Giant peach. But you know what, I‘m not going defend myself any or cover up the truth. I every once and a whole will read a kid book. I will… Continue

The Seance : Not Really Good, But Not Bad Either.
The Séance By Heather Graham
This is more of a random book thrown into mix. Like the reviews aren’t random enough. This one is a supernatural mystery called, “The Séance” by Heather Graham apparently is a New York Time best seller auditor, who seems to be unknown by myself and everyone I know. This one I grabbed out of a free box at a yard sale. It had water damage, a torn cover and smelled like perfume. But regardless of its… Continue

The Last Olympian By Rick Riordan Smoothie Review
So here it is. The review on the last book in the “Percy Jackson and The Olympians,” series, and it took me forever to get this book. Believe it or not, there’s nothing to do in my small pacific northwest town and a lot of people read. And apparently I was not the only Percy Jackson fan, because where ever I turned this book, the store was sold out. So I had to order it online. And the book had to get lost in the shipping for crying… Continue

Flowers For Algernon : A Classic Odyssey That Should That Pulls So Many Heart Strings
Flowers For Algernon By Daniel Keyes
Overall Rating : A Man’s Odyssey that pulls so many heart strings
Okay if you have been reading my other smoothie reviews then you know I’m a sucker for science fiction. Or importantly classic science fiction. If you haven’t notice this by now, go back and read my Subterranean review. I couldn’t stop…

A Tolken For Celandine By Laurell K. Hamilton
Not much of a intro here, just another short story review found in Laurell K Hamitlon’s Strange Candy short story. This one is a dungeons and dragons style piece called “A Toklen For Celandine.”
So the story is not like Hamilton’s other books. It happens in a medieval setting, featuring the traditional classic fantasy elements such as trolls , elves, unicorns and what not. They story follows a female elf warrior named Bevhinn, who… Continue

Memoirs Of An Invisible Man By H.F. Saint
I get my books from odd places. Garage sales, give a ways, bargain bins, and sometimes out of trash can at my friends house. (He has no tastes in books and often throw good ones away) I grab books that seem interesting, providing an new concept or have tons of potential. I prefer not to join the waves of current fans of big writers stalking their every move. I mean, these guys that no one hears of are sometimes better than JK Rowling, or… Continue

The Yattering And The Jack By Clive Barker
Overall Rating: A attempt at a overdone idea that sadly missed it’s mark.
This is a another short story by Clive Bark out of the “Book of Blood.” And regardless of the cheesy titles, I like what I have read so far. It is great to see someone with their own style rather than ripping off someone else. So this is the first story. It’s called the “The Yattering and The Jack” Continue
So to start off with, it’s not as dark as twisted as Barker’s…

Lockhart’s Nightmare by Wayne Banton and Stan Williams Smoothie review
Overall rating: A Charming Western Fantasy about Two Lovers on the Run
This book was an unusual find. I found this at a yard sale during the summer out of the largest collection of odd books that ranged from mermaid love stories to alien mummies to pirates in love. I mean I’ve seen many love stories at yard sale with the pretty girls and then the half naked (or entirely naked) perfect men holding them. Yet… Continue

Into The Fire
Into The Fire
Paris, France. It was the beautiful city of love. A place that people call enchanting. It was the gorgeous city that people all around the world travel to for honeymoons and vacations. But everything about the place offered nothing for me. The world I knew only shattered around me. Like a cracked mirror it was distorted and now when I step in front of one, I held no reflection. With the teeth and claws of this world leaving so many wounds, I could… Continue

Today I have dropped the case. I won’t look into it any further. I thought it might have been a murder but it’s the strangest damn thing I have ever seen.
I come to the crime scene. The police are very hush more so than usual. The windows were broken. The glass crunched under my feet. Dead crows laid across the floor. They were impaled. As I looked down I saw that they… Continue

Night On The River
Night on the River
The water was dark. Everything was. The dark ripples from the boat flowing through the water were hardly noticeable. There was no moon that night. The businesses were closed. The only lights form the shore were street lights that turned from green to yellow to red for the traffic that wasn’t there. Even in a city as big as
Miami, there was not a soul awake at two in the morning.… Continue

Beyond The Window
I stayed there near the glass. I sat on the window seat. It was a simple cushioned shelf just beneath the frame of the window. I t was always my favorite seat. But it seemed to not matter all that much any more. It was simple place, and became my place to sit for the years passed.
But it was silent inside the apartment. With the storm raging outside, the lights were out. The TV was off.…

Pickman’s Model by HP Lovecraft
Overall Rating: An Odd Creepy Puzzle That May Entertain Or Disappoint.
Okay this is a short story by HP Lovecraft. Well overall I don’t think HP Lovecraft wrote anything but short stories. But all the same, this is a tale called Pickman’s Model. And if you have not heard of this author, then I dare you to look up some films that are based off of or influenced by Lovecraftean horror such as Re-animator, Dagon, From Beyond…

Carriers: A Journey Into The Rainforest For the Obvious Source.
Carriers by Patrick Lynch
Okay not much of intro for this one. All I can say is it was a church book giveaway and I grabbed whatever looked mildly interesting. And one of those books I did grab is called Carriers by Patrick Lynch. It was a simple white cover with bright bold red title. Then there was an inside cover revealing three faceless military people in gas masks and bio hazard…

Man’s Search For Meaning By Viktor E Frankl
Overall Rating: An Intriguing Look Into The Mind Of A Holocaust Survivor
This is another odd smoothie review. This one is a called Man’s Search For Meaning By Viktor E Frankl. It was a required reading for a college class. So since I read it, why not write a review.
First off, Man’s Search For Morning is not a text book. It’s not a memoir. It’s no a self help book. But it’s very much a combination of all three of these. It… Continue

The Find Of The Century
It was hot. The temperature hung in the high eighties. But it seemed much hitter than that, to the workers. They had been working without much rest that week in the dry plains of South Africa. They were digging. They were digging up some sort of ruin that was lost long ago.
Archeologists Ivan Von Coy was the one who discovered that the top of it was in fact, the tip a building rather than a…

A Scarcity Of Lake Monsters by Laurel K Hamilton
Overall Rating : Sweet gentle Tale From Deep Water
Okay after reading two really bad books in a row, I’m not sure whether I can gamble on another five hundred novel just yet. I need a breather after that god awful Clive Cussler torture contraption called Atlantis Found. So I’m taking a break and am heading back to world of short stories. And I’m going to one of favorite authors Laurel K Hamilton. This one is called “A Scarcity Of… Continue

The Edge of the Sea by Laurell K. Hamilton
Laurell K. Hamilton is a good writer and I’m convinced of that. Even now she is good. She’s just in a rut of writing stuff that’s X- rated, rather than actually writing a story. Edge of The Sea is a short story she recently wrote that hits much closer to home for any one who read her earlier stuff. It can be found in the Strange Candy Collection.
The story starts with Adria, who find that her room mate Rachel is missing in middle of… Continue
