Mayan Shadows by Craig A Hart & S J Varengo


Mayan Shadows is an action-packed adventure searching for the lost Mayan civilization with some interesting characters. Max and Axle are the main well-developed characters surrounded by quite a cast of characters. Archeology is Max’s profession, just like his dad. Axle is Max’s best friend. Together they find themselves in an Indiana Jones-type adventure. Through the book, Max and Axle get involved with some real characters.

Mayan Shadows is a non-stop suspenseful adventure. Some characters are odd. The author does a great job of using the characters to add to the suspense. This is an easy book to read and moves fast.

I hope Max goes on other adventures. I look forward to seeing what’s next with my fingers crossed.

Dusty is one man making it in a post-apocalyptic world. Dusty’s Diary is his survival tool. Dusty may be the last man on earth. There are plenty of things walking around, but to survive, you must hide from them.

Cyber Storm by Matthew Mather, Narattrd by Tom Taylorson


Cyber Storm is the story about a perfect storm in NYC in the 21st Cyber Storm takes place in an apartment building. Life in NYC. Significant snow storms plus a cyber attack leave people stranded. A great what if story. A what if that could actually happen.

Many different characters are put together in this apartment building setting. They are all detailed characters. They come to life through the excellent narration. It’s quite a journey.

This is my second time to listen to Cuber Storm. I remember what it was about and I really enjoyed but not the actual details. I’m going to read the next book in the series Cyber Space now.

Sactuary by Mathew Mather


After Nomad hits, people do live on. The new ice age. Survival is a precious thing in the new unfriendly earth. Jess and others must figure out how to survive. On top of that, people are hunting for Jess.

Jess is an extreme adventurer, but nothing could prepare her for life ahead of her and her supposed friends. Sanctuary has action, love, betrayal, and death. This is the second book in the series. Read Nomad first. Sanctuary takes place in the form of how many days after Nomad hit the earth. Sanctuary is a scary and exciting book.

Shadow of Punishment by Jacques Oscar Lufuluabo


Shadow of Punishment is a complex, suspenseful murder mystery. The book is in two parts. Before and after murder happens. The author has built an entire cast of very different characters around a substance abuse clinic. These characters are the owners, employees, family, and friends of this clinic. The reader learns about all the different characters, who they are, and how they know each other. Everybody in this story has something to hide. They may or may not realize it. After the murder of a clinic employee, various law enforcement characters join the cast of characters.

Inspector Nardi is in charge of this murder. He enters the apartment of a dead woman—a clinic employee. Nardi is a compelling character bringing his baggage to this complex investigation. Inspector Nardi is the one to see things no one else does. Jealousy is an evil embedded with many characters. Everyone is looking out for themselves. Not the best characteristics in people. When this bunch of people’s lives intersect, many bad things happen. Twists and turns, along with some seemingly obvious situations, are ongoing. I love this story. Jaw-dropping ending!

Help Me Kill My Husband by R D Murray


Help Me Kill My Husband is a fast-paced original story. I did not want to put this book down. Dale is the husband referred to in the title. This guy is quite a character. Dani is Dale’s wife. The reader witnesses the story through Dani.

Dani’s fault is she fell in love with Dale. It turns out a lot of women fall in love with Dale. Dale takes full advantage of this. He is manipulative to an insane degree. Dani slowly discovers everything. Help Me Kill My Husband is a quick, easy read. I enjoyed this book and will be reading other books by this author.
