***** Review of Wild Blackberries by Lorrie Unites-Struiff

Picture
Wild Blackberries by Lorrie Unites-Struiff was a fantastic short story.  From the first sentence I knew it was going to be a 'do not put down until finished' tale.

Morgan is doing research on an Indian Reservation for her new novel.  In the midst of her research she is also trying to finalize a divorce with her husband who drained her bank account and her patience.

When Morgan awakes in the trunk of a car,  she searches her memory of what happened.  When her captor,  who just happens to be her husband,  tries killing her,  Morgan must outsmart him while confronting the spirit world of the reservation.  Is her mind playing tricks on her,  or is seeing really believing?

Find out in this fast paced short story,  Wild Blackberries.  Struiff holds nothing back on suspense and thrills.

**** Review of The Wielders of the Sengans by C.V. Huffstead

The Wielder of the Sengans: Including the Tomes of Ithren by C.V. Huffstead

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Wielder of the Sengans by C.V. Huffstead was truly a story of good vs. evil. Captivating and leaving you wanting more.



Haran, The Watcher, continually sings praise to the Most High. She battles the dark forces continually keeping them encrusted in the Earth. Illfaeyan is a young lord who's heart was consumed by the darkness. Haran helped to fight the battle that locked Illfaeyan behind fire, keeping his darkness at bay. Illfaeyan never gave up hope of being set free though.



Haran walked the Earth, travelling to different lands singing her praise when she finds an infant. Raising this infant as her own, she knew there was something special about her, but she never dreamed that Eliah would eventually take her place in God's plan.



When Haran realizes that Eliah is in fact the one who will replace her, she sings her departure as Eliah unknowingly awakens the darkness of Illfaeyan. Eliah was pushed into the dark forest, and now faces the battle against evil, as it is now her place to send Illfaeyan back to the Earth.



Assisted by the last of the Great Silver Wolves, Eliah faces the battle of her life while she learns her destiny.



Huffstead did a great job with this tale. Fast paced and leaving you wanting to find out what happens next, I give The Wielders of the Sengans **** (4) Stars, BK Walker. http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com

VBT Pit Stop with Wayne Farquhar, author of Blood Over Badge

Wayne Farquhar is a 28-year veteran working with the San Jose Police Department in California. He has worked through the ranks from officer to lieutenant with detective assignments in Sexual Assaults, Homicide and Internal Affairs. He has also worked undercover assignments in Child Exploitation, Child Pornography and Vice. He spent 10 years as a street cop and hostage negotiator. Wayne has worked on Federal Task Forces with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). He has appeared on national television, /America’s Most Wanted/ on a murder investigation. BLOOD OVER BADGE is his first effort in crime-thriller fiction, and he hopes to write more books and speak to larger audiences about his experiences in law enforcement. Wayne lives with his family in the San Francisco Bay Area.

If you would like to formally invite Wayne to speak about BLOOD OVER BADGE or law enforcement to your organization, association, conference or expo, please send an email to info@bloodoverbadge.com.

TWO SEEMINGLY UNRELATED CRIMES –
TWO SEEMINGLY UNRELATED KILLERS –
AND TWO MYSTERIES WAITING TO BE SOLVED …

The murder of the Mayor of San Francisco’s daughter sets the stage for
this intriguing and spellbinding crime thriller. Two police detectives, Jack Paige and Casey Ford are assigned to catch a cold-blooded rapist and killer. In this gritty, realistic tale of homicide, unrelated mysteries of two murderers seem to come together and make little sense. What does a man rotting away behind the stench-enclosed walls of Angola Penitentiary have to do with an evil and cruel rapist and killer now on the run from California to Texas? What is the relationship to the killing of the Mayor’s daughter? BLOOD OVER BADGE, an intense, taunt and brilliantly told crime thriller, takes readers on a realistic, gritty and real-world tour de force exploring the underbelly of police and detective work.
