Blades of Glass by Rudy Stankowitz 4.2 Stars (8 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Part of her throat torn away. The other girl too. Dragged into the treeline on the swamp side of the lot. The gators had not hidden the evidence in time. The waitress was next. The one from that twenty-four-hour breakfast place. She was over at the sink, all laid out under a cardboard palm and covered in her blood. A jogger found that one. Barely breathing, but alive. "An exceptionally terrifying & twisted tale. Fantastic characters. Vivid imagery. So realistic that it gave me nightmares. I recommend this book, a cup of coffee and leaving the light on... " Willow Sullivan was in the er when paramedics wheeled the woman in. That's when she saw him. Not for the first time, but the first time she saw him as what he was. Crazed. Vicious. Possessed. Another body with throat mutilated at the old watermill. Then a fifth at the great birding trail. A college town petrified by seemingly motiveless homicides and a pair of veteran police detectives willing to employ aberrant protocols. What kind of monster could be capable of such carnage? Unfortunately for Nurse Sullivan, she is the only one that has seen the killer's face, and she sees it everywhere. The police are not taking her seriously, and escaping his reach seems hopeless. Willow knows deep inside that she is vital in solving this case, but she doesn't know how or why. She does know if she doesn't figure it out and get the cops to believe her, the body count will continue to climb. Darius watches the case unfold on the news and finds humor in the failed efforts of the investigation. He is intrigued by the Nurse, a bit beyond obsession. Addiction. Willow and a gut curdlingly insatiable thirst for blood. "OMG Rudy!!! What a cool book!! Congratulations and bravo!!" - Actress Diane Franklin The Last American Virgin, Amityville ll: The Possession, Better Off Dead, The Amityville Murders: A Haunting on Long Island

Ben-Hur: The Novel That Inspired the Epic Movie by Lew Wallace (Skyhorse) Price verified 3 hours ago

Lew Wallace's powerful and poignant story of Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish prince from Jerusalem living at the time of Jesus Christ, has been around for more than a century, yet it continues to attract and inspire readers to this day.

Luckily, he survives when the ship is attacked by pirates, and comes home, determined to find his family and intent on revenge on the Romans. While organizing a resistance force, he journeys to see John the Baptist. After he realizes that Jesus stands for forgiveness rather than revenge, Ben-Hur becomes one of his followers and devotes his life to the church after the crucifixion.

A Sibling in Always by Ernest Gordon Taulbee 4.5 Stars (10 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

When a severely deformed corpse lands on his embalming table, skilled mortician, Horace Carver is forced to confront his apathy towards life and the dark secrets hidden within himself, his family, and his hometown of Always, Indiana. This engaging novel finds a depth that is often missing in many of today's books. Laden with literary devices and allusions, including themes borrowed from ancient mythology, this book immerses itself into the broadened and modernizing Mid-Western culture of the late 1970's to 2008, highlighting the prose with delicate harmonic overtones of the Near South. The prose has the classic sensibilities with the poetic nuances and timing. It also uses tightly metered poetry that often serves as the reader's guide while experiencing the novel. The story itself is one of tragedy and rebirth, as the main character Horace Carver serves as both a reluctant and unreliable narrator as he struggles to find his place in the world and the voice with which he will tell his story. In a similar fashion, the secondary narrator, Dr. Elmer Ellsworth, struggles with his own sense of self as he ends a career of hope and promise only to delve into madness as he cares for the peculiar little sibling: Acquila Rose. Though several of the characters find their origin in Greek and Egyptian mythology, they become real and flawed people, struggling to understand the lives they are living and the people who surround them. The author allows them to remain ambiguous and confused, even when the conventions of literature would demand the conflict be resolved. The majority of the novel takes place in 2008, the last year people paid attention to each other, before turning their attention to smartphones. Written in a present and intense manner, the story will please those who demand a higher level of literary discourse as well as those who prefer a fetching contemporary read. This novel departs from the dictates of corporate "literary" novels while disregarding the ...

Children of Stonewall by Kayvan Kaboli 5.0 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

"Gay people battle homophobes in modern-day San Francisco and ancient Sodom and Gomorrah in this debut fantasy thriller." -- Kirkus Reviews "When gay programmer Arthur Stevenson joins his co-workers at San Francisco's Tech2AI Company for a group meditation session after the 2016 presidential election, he has a strange vision of a burning town, which he identifies as the biblical city of Sodom. But contrary to the Genesis story, in which God destroyed Sodom for deviancy, Arthur's subsequent visions portray it, Gomorrah, and the three other "cities in the plain" as utopias of peace, prosperity, abundant leisure time, and acceptance of LGBTQ lifestyles." -- Kirkus Reviews "In the visions, King Chedorlaomer of the powerful hill city of Elam teams up with homophobic patriarch Abraham to try to conquer gender-nonconforming peoples. Back in modern times, San Francisco's residents are captivated by accounts of Arthur's visions when a newspaper publishes them -- as is John Wesley the Third, the antigay leader of the fundamentalist "Baptodist Church," who mobilizes all his resources, including a minion in President Donald Trump's White House and a spy at Tech2AI, to destroy Arthur, his friends, and his gay-positive message. Fortunately, Arthur's vision quest gives him superpowers, including the ability to immobilize people, which he uses against various bad guys, including a terrorist and alt-right thugs." -- Kirkus Reviews "Kaboli's yarn stitches together two thematically related narratives -- a reworking of the Bible into a saga of enlightened libertines confronting hatred, and a reprise of it thousands of years later with contemporary politics." -- Kirkus Reviews

Poet Of The Wrong Generation by Lonnie Ostrow (Harmony River Press) 4.7 Stars (155 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

"It's not that I don't love you, and my tears are yet to dry. But you can't go back and forth forever and we've already said goodbye." Through these words, a young poet unearths his musical soul while severing ties with the woman he loves after her stunning betrayal. Unknowingly, in writing this ballad of liberation, he will soon evolve as one of the fastest rising stars on the pop music landscape. The year is 1991; the place, New York City. Here we meet Johnny Elias, a college student from Brooklyn with boundless adoration for two things in life: timeless popular music, and the heart of a sweet, complicated young woman who is clearly out of his league. Megan Price not only is the object of Johnny's affection, but also the only daughter of New York's most powerful PR woman: the indomitable Katherine Price. Projecting that her daughter's boyfriend will never live up to the family standard, Katherine cleverly perpetrates a series of duplicitous schemes to rid Johnny from her high-class world. But in her callous disregard, she inadvertently sets him on a determined course to his improbable musical destiny - while sending her own daughter spiraling down a path of devastation. Poet of the Wrong Generation tells the symmetrical story of a lovable underdog and his meteoric rise to stardom, his humiliating downfall and his unprecedented attempt to reclaim his place as the unlikely musical spokesman for his generation. At the heart of Poet is a tale of star-crossed lovers and their struggle with unforeseen success and disillusionment, in an attempt to rediscover lasting harmony. Uniquely integrating a variety of original song compositions, Poet projects the epic clash between true contentment and the fable of stardom's rewards; a nostalgic journey through the major events of the 1990s, with a cherished cast of characters and a stunningly unpredictable conclusion. The ultimate rock & roll love story. REVIEWS: 4 Stars out of 4 Eloquently written song lyrics highlight ...

Love defies all odds... When Nicola first arrives in London, she is only eleven years old, just off a children's Famine Train from Austria, and plastered with tags and labels identifying who she is. She refers to herself as "an ex-enemy" of England -- her father, left behind, is a colonel who served with the Hussars -- and awaits someone to come and take charge of her in this strange new city. When Kathleen Conroy arrives at Victoria Station to pick Nicola up, she doesn't come alone -- her nephew, Peter, accompanies her. For Nicola, the romance of life seems to begin from the very moment that Peter Conroy, nineteen, Irish, and adventurous, finds her on the platform. For Peter, meeting the young Austrian girl marks the beginning of the rest of his life; fired from his job, he sets out to see the world and, in the process, discovers the real thrill of living. Years later, Peter and Nicola are reunited, and come to see each other in a new light. Nicola, grown into a beautiful and thoughtful young woman, immediately captures Peter's attention, while in return, Nicola senses in Peter something that none of her other beaux have been able to offer. Theirs is an idyllic love in an unstable time that suffers from the harshness of the reality. Undiminished by years of separation, Peter and Nicola rekindle their love in the face of impossible odds. Theirs is a poignant, heartening love story, set against a background of teeming London, the green Home counties, the sodden Midlands, and a shabby but enchanting Vienna. Fly Away Blackbird is a bittersweet tale of romance that struggles against all odds to survive.
