My Thoughts:

This was an awesome little paranormal romance, It was a fast but pleasant read. Great Characters, Great Plot, Great Romance. This is everything I look for in a paranormal romance. As I said it was a short read but the author managed to cram in seraphs, immortals, witches, and goddesses and so much more. I highly recommend to urban fantasy fans and lovers of paranormal romance.

Steven Shrewsbury - Philistine - A Tale of Goliath

Author: Steven Shrewsbury
Featured Book Release
A Tale of Goliath
March 3 to March 9, 2014

StevenShrewsburyAuthorPhotoAbout the Author: STEVEN L. SHREWSBURY lives, works, and writes in rural Illinois. Over 360 of his short stories have appeared in print or electronic media along with over 100 poems. 9 of his novels have been released, with more on the way. His books run from sword & sorcery (PHILISTINE, OVERKILL, THRALL, BEDLAM UNLEASHED) to historical fantasy (GODFORSAKEN) extreme horror (HAWG, TORMENTOR, STRONGER THAN DEATH) to horror-westerns (HELL BILLY, BAD MAGICK, and the forthcoming LAST MAN SCREAMING). He loves books, British TV, guns, movies, politics, sports and hanging out with his sons. He’s frequently outdoors, looking for brightness wherever it may hide.

PhilistineCoverBook Synopsis Philistine: The Philistines, a mysterious warrior people known now for mainly one man: Goliath. The giant. Goliath. A name grander than even the man himself. You've heard of his infamous end at the hands of a shepherd as written in a famous book, but what of the life of the man himself? What book tells his tale? A warrior among warriors, a son of a god, a living legend. Goliath, the warrior champion of the Philistines. On the battlefield, he runs like a horse, wields killing instruments no normal man may heft, and revels in the fear his presence evokes. Off the field, his will is immutable, his trust invaluable, and his appetites unbearable. Goliath. This man knows no challenge. But such a reputation will not discourage all men. Scheming rulers and generals, prophetic priests and powerful cults, dauntless warriors looking to make their own legend. Monsters. Gods. For one seemingly unkillable, at the very least, these things can ruin an otherwise pleasant day. Along with his shield bearer, Abimelech, and soldiers more in awe than they are useful, Goliath will set out on missions for kings, face foul magic users, and walk in the shadows of mysterious halls. History tells us Goliath died at the hands of an Israelite. Goliath may have something to say about that. Philistine is the first Tale of Goliath, set in the same world as Steven Shrewsbury's novels such as Overkill and Thrall, and his Blood and Steel: Legends of La Gaul short stories.  

My Thoughts:

This book took off from word one and was action packed the whole time. I love the Authors voice. Thrall was one of the best I have read in the genre so I had a feeling this book would not disappoint. And it did not. This was a great sword and sorcery. But be warned it is battle after bloody battle. But I highly recommend if you love sword and sorcery you will love this book. I love this new take on an old tale. Shrewsbury is an old school storyteller and a master at that.

My Rating: 4 out of 5.

9781937929404_Perfect_Cover.indd Book Synopsis Reclamation: The exciting conclusion of the Leland Dragon Series! Leland Province remains in danger. The sinister Fordon Blackclaw has returned from the shadows to strike at the heart of neighboring Esra, killing its Venur and making clear his intentions to retake what was once his: Mount Gore, seat of the Leland Dragon Council. All around, the land grows weaker and weaker. Leland, once thought saved by Kallon Redheart, is without purpose, and within its borders, Murk Forest, a place of mystery and danger, has driven its inhabitants to seek aid. Esra is in flames, and the Rage Desert grows. Dragon and human alike struggle to find their way, and the wizard Orman can sense that there may be more at stake than the affairs of dragons. Hope remains, yet it is not without obstacles. In Esra, Sela, the daughter of Kallon and Riza, found the well, a source of life, and made herself whole again. But her homecoming is not what she had imagined. Old wounds buried deep must reopen if life is to continue. Dragons, humans, wizards, and shape shifters are all at risk as the peace between dragon and human has finally been broken. War is here. The stakes? Perhaps the whole world.

My Thoughts:
From the minute I picked up Redheart, Jackie Gamber has topped my list of favorite authors. I fell in love with Redheart and read the whole thing in a weekend. Sela was next up and it was amazing. I read that one in about a day. I could not wait for book three. I didn't think I could love Ms. Gamber anymore then I did already but she has done it again, this book was stellar.  Book Three jumps in right where two leaves off and the action does not stop. Ms. Gamber does is amazing at developing and creating truly complex and beautiful characters. Ms. Gamber is by far one of the best character creators I have ever read.  The beauty of this series is it is a message of hope, tolerance, love, strength and family. I think this trilogy contains a wonderful message. I highly recommend this book to all ages and all genre lovers. This rich, complex book will grab on to the reader and hang on tight until the end. It was a brilliant ending to the trilogy. Though I am sad to see it end. Fantastic Job Jackie Gamber.
