Always a fan of short story collections, I especially liked this one because the stories are different - everything from ghosts to murderers to the danger of swans. Enjoyable fast reading from a talented author! I can't wait to read more work from Maria Savva!

While The Savage Sleeps - Andrew E. Kaufman
This book really kept me guessing. Assistant Sheriff Cameron Dawson works to solve bizarre murders taking place, but are these murders related? Are they committed by the same person? I kept reading on until I got to the exciting ending - an ending which made me ask myself, "What if this really happened?" Beautiful, vivid writing from Andrew Kaufman, putting him right up there with my favorite authors - Dean Koontz and Stephen King. I can't wait to read his next novel!

I was immediately drawn in to the story of Mac Jackson and the lives of the Croft family. This was a great page turner - nice twist there at the end! I love stories that grab me immediately at the beginning and also toward the end and that's exactly what this one did! I actually found myself believing Jessica's ordeal and even talking to the book (edge of my seat talk) just before the climax! I can't wait to read Jenny's next novel!

I enjoyed this book because the writing was very well done. In this futuristic look at our world, Wagner impressed me with his descriptive use of gadgets that aren't invented yet such as instead of using cell phones, we will be using wrist vids - If we want to dial a number, we shake our wrists. If we want to pay for something, we have a plastic device implanted under our skin.
The plot of River of Eden involves good vs. evil, centering around war. Dubbed as christian fiction, it takes a look at our history as well as what's to come.
Fast paced and engaging, River of Eden is a book you won't want to miss.
