Review: I am the Weapon by Allen Zadoff

Review: I am the Weapon by Allen Zadoff

I haven’t read a book like this in a long time. I mostly read romance centered YA, in various genres, but this–this was something different. There were romantic elements, but it was all apart of a much bigger mystery, and I have to admit, I liked it.

Review I received a free copy of this book thanks to the author via Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This book started out with a bang, but then it leveled out for a while and spent a lot of time on back story so it took me a minute  to get into it. But I’m glad I stuck with it because this story ended up being well written and action packed.   This is the same…

Review: Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

Review: Sanctuary by Pauline Creeden

Review I received a free copy for this book from the author via YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This book was a mixture of quite a few genres. There was a Science Fiction, Horror, and a hint if inspirational/Christian Fiction. I never would have thought that these things would blend well together, but somehow, they did. The story is told from the point of views of three different characters. Jennie is a 19-year old college sophomore,…

Interview 1. How did you come up with the idea for Love Unfeigned? Well, as a major point, I was inspired by my conviction that imperfect people can, should, and do experience perfect love. As a minor point, I was driven by my years of longing to one day publish a book with a lot of RED on the cover, red being my favorite color for the passion it represents. For the first time in my publishing life, I designed…

Interview 1. I know you’re a teacher so how much of an influence did that have on your decision to write Chasing Prophecy? Teaching is the reason this book exists.  The kids are based on bits and pieces of lots of former students.  I wanted to write about young adults transforming 2. Did you allow your students to read your book before it was published, and if so what were their reactions? You know, no student knows this exists.  I…

  Interview 1. I noticed that the vampires in your book have a more classic feel to them. Are you more a fan of the Dracula or Twilight interpretation of vampires? I’m definitely a fan of the more classic vampire that you’d find within Dracula. I think there is something much more menacing to them but also more Gothic and interesting. The character of Dr. Moralus in particular was a homage to classic vampires. I drew inspiration for him from the…

Interview 1. How do you come up with the ideas for your books?  Honestly, it varies. Sometimes I come up with the plot first; sometimes it’s a character speaking to me, and sometimes it’s a scene. REAPER was a what if question: What if Miss Popular suddenly learned she would become a grim reaper? For “The 13th Month”, I was given the theme of ONE MORE DAY. The story really developed out of the character and his reaction to the theme….

Interview 1. I have read some very complementary reviews of your book that have me very excited about reading it. Mainly, readers are impressed by how original the story is so I have to ask, how did you come up with the idea for Legacy? *blushes* The readers continually humble me with their kind words. It overwhelms me, to be honest. Originally, LEGACY was an untitled story concept that was outlined for an online multi-player RPG (role-playing game). The video game…
