The highly anticipated finale in the 'All Souls Trilogy'

Published on Thursday, July 17, 2014

The Book of Life book coverAfter waiting so long for the conclusion of this series, this book immediately starts out where the second title left off. We come into the story having left Diana and Matthew discovering themselves and their relationship through time. It's broad reaching implications follow them seamlessly into this last installment.  Diana is quickly discovering her power, and Matthew is slowly coming to terms with the implications of his blood rage and place in the de Clermont family hierarchy. Back is the intensity of detail that readers love in the first two books. The dialog is well orchestrated and each character has an amazingly strong voice.

The Honest Parents edition

Published on Friday, June 13, 2014

Kids have a way of bringing out the best and worst in their parents. One minute they are writhing around on the floor because they “don’t know how to stand up” and the next minute, they are climbing on your lap because they need a hug. Luckily, there are lots of writers who have managed to find the humor in the absurd, and have chronicled their journey as parents, often times online. Sometimes sweet, sometimes profane, these titles might help you get through those long weekends of sitting at home while your child sleeps in the other room. That, and a stiff drink.
