Every once in a while when I take the dogs outside late at night…
The air is thick as you breathe it in
It fills your lungs with its silence
It unnerves you when you are alone
Because in the darkness there are shadows.
They are filled with the unknown
It’s quiet is lurking with danger
Unseen and watching your heart races
Skin covered in sweat you scan the darkness
You see nothing and hear nothing.
Yet, you know it’s there.
You hurry back into the light where it is safe
And you shut the door and lock it…
With a sigh of relief–
You quickly forget the darkness.
But, what you don’t know is–
It hasn’t forgotten you.
My latest book reviews:
This is an interesting and unique take on a well-known Bible story from the old Testament. “The Fall of Lilith” follows a group of angels who rebel against the life they have in heaven, in a place called Floraison. Lilith is the driving force behind all of this as she encourages Lucifer to lead. As expected, the rebels find themselves on earth. This is my favorite part of the story and where it got interesting. I can’t say I rooted for Lilith, but there were others I was hoping things would work out for—like Gadreel. Ms. Vega crafted a well-written book with lots of depth, images to pull you in, and it definitely kept my interest as I wondered what was going to happen next. I recommend this book if you love fantasy with a Biblical connection– or an action-packed tale of revenge.
“Stranger Abduction” is a well-written novel based on an actual event. A mother and daughter walk from their home to a store in Arizona and never make it back. Mr. Chitwood gives a very viable and chilling account as to what might have happened next. Doris and Deena find themselves thrown into the human trafficking trade, while the Deputy Jack Kiefer never gives up on finding them. The details and characters kept this a page turning book as well as the side story with the Deputy. This is a glimpse into an evil that is going on around us as “products” (a label used for Doris and Deena) are being drugged and used for other’s gratification or service. I highly recommend this book, because even with a dark subject matter there are always heroes.
