the king of vampires for a father. And how do you discipline a
4-year-old wizard? Are there evil vampires out trying to kidnap
Dracula’s boy?

 Review: This is such a unique and unusual series! I wasn’t sure what to expect, so when I started this, it took some time for me to get used to the writing style and characters. Parts were darker and sometimes down-right gross, but the whole series is over-laid with a humorous tone. I enjoyed Dracula’s character most of all, and the bad guys were easy to hate, but there were so many of them, I found myself loosing track of who was who at times. Still, this series was an enjoyable read.
A. J. Gallant is a best selling author who has written over a dozen
books, mostly fantasy but some mystery as well. He has written the
“of Knights and Wizards” series, Olivia Brown Mysteries, and the
Dracula HEARTS series. He writes seven days a week and has written
over a million words, some of them pretty good. Gallant has two cats
that he dearly loves who get him up at five every morning, Sun-Jade
(tabby) and Moon Diamond (Siamese).


The “of Knights and Wizards” series involves a coming-of-age tail of
a young boy accidentally transformed into a sorcerer, and he must try
to become adept in order to save his kingdom, and so far, things are
not going too well.


The DRACULA HEARTS series (book 5 to be released in February/March 2018.
In the first book Dracula is in a deep depression and must snap out
of it if he is to help save the Big Apple from the evil vampires.

Review: Our Dark Stars


Our Dark Stars

While she sleeps, the whole universe changes.

Princess Talia Starchaser has it all. Wealth. Status. Adoring citizens. But on the eve of her eighteenth birthday, she’s forced to publicly betray her best friend, a companion mock she’s had since birth, setting events into motion that lead to the destruction of the humans, and the princess floating through space, a remnant of a time when humans ruled over droids.

One hundred years later, half-mock captain Will Perrault and his ragtag crew discover a device floating in space. When a very human Talia emerges from its depths, Will suspects she’s the key to buying his way back into the regiment he once commanded against the last remaining rebel humans—and the ruling mock queen’s good graces.

Both Talia and Will would rather get space-tossed than trust one another, but with the queen’s forces chasing them across the galaxy and the fate of both worlds hanging in the balance, they’ll forge the unlikeliest of alliances to survive.

Review: *I received an eCopy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

Such a fun read! I’m not a big sci-fi fan, and don’t often read about space, but this one was easy to follow, and I was quickly hooked! I find some sci-fi books to be confusing and too technical, but this one, written in typical YA fashion, is super easy to understand, and I loved the characters and world it contained. I’m always a sucker for a good retelling, and I loved how this one played out, and the original spin this one puts on a classic story.


Review: Campbell’s Rambles

22876026Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life

This is the story of how the author obtained her first guide dog, Campbell, from The Seeing Eye™ in Morristown, New Jersey: what motivated her, the extensive training she had, the special relationship she developed with her trainer, and the good friends she made.

Once she returned home to Tennessee, there were many new challenges to be met and overcome, including domestic abuse. All that was in addition to her chronic conditions of bipolar disorder and fibromyalgia.

With honesty, courage, and humor, Patty Fletcher tells a remarkable story of personal development that is sure to inform, entertain, and inspire others, both blind and sighted.

Review: *I received a copy from the author for review. This does not affect my review.*

Such an inspiring and wonderful story of how Patty Fletcher met her Seeing Eye dog Campbell, and their journey and process of getting to know each other, and learning to work and live as a team. This story is inspiring for many readers, both sighted and blind, and is well written and easy to follow. Dealing with struggles that make us human, and how the author was able to work through and overcome some major struggles, and to meet the dog who would guide her through life.
