Blurb: MORTALS BEWARE: What am I saying? If you made it this far, you’ll be fine…

The end is here.

Will our heroes save the day? Or will they lose to the dark forces that conspire against all the realms?

The demon Kinzer is on the run–a fugitive accused of a crime he didn’t commit. He’s lost what little he had left to live for. But despite how futile his efforts against Armageddon seem, he fights on…even when all hope seems lost.

Meanwhile, Trey and Kid are sent to an immortal prison to await sentencing for the same crime Kinzer is wanted for. As immortals work to decide the fates of these creatures, a greater war lingers on the horizon. And with it, will come an apocalypse that will ravage the heavens and the Earth.

All creation is f*cked, and despite anyone’s cries and pleas for mercy, no god will come to their rescue.

Not in…

THE CLIPPED SAGA.

*This is the third and final installment in the saga.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This installment of the Clipped Saga has many twists and turns as well as plenty of action and heart stopping suspense. Throughout this entire series I have been on the edge of my seat. Though I will admit the sex scenes took me by surprise with the pain in them.

Aside from the sometimes brutality that goes on I was entranced by the story. I was drawn in from the beginning of the series to the end. Kinzar, Trey, Kid, Hayde and all their allies fight for their lives as well as humanities against Janka and his crew. The fight scenes were awesome and in great detail.

I have never read a series quite like it before as most dial back the horror and details. Not so in this series. You get a no holds barred story that packs quite a punch and leaves you reeling at times with it’s fast pace and the things that go on.

Even though I did not care for the assault/rape scenes and was squeamish with the sex I still loved the series. If your looking for HEA and sweetness this series is not for you. If you like dark, gritty in your face horrifying with a storyline that is amazing this series is definitely for you.

Blurb: MORTALS BEWARE: True to the first gospel’s form, this second chronicle in THE CLIPPED SAGA presents the absurd, the nonsensical, the perplexing, the disturbing, and the gratuitous adventures of immortals with bizarre tastes and inclinations. Brace yourself for a ride on the wild side with a cast of characters who still can’t seem to keep their pants on, even during the most crucial of times.

The demon Kinzer’s got a serious problem.

A powerful weapon, a ticking time bomb, that could end all of humanity. He’s also got a knack for getting himself into trouble–something complicated by a new companion who arrives to help he and his mortal ally on their quest to save humanity from God’s wrath.

Meanwhile, Treycore is on a mission to save Kid, the mortal who he fell way too fast for…something he still can’t make sense of. For the sake of rescuing Kid–and because nothing can be too easy in the demented universe of a sadist author’s creation–the only way Trey can get to Kid is to make peace with his ex, the most beautiful of all the angels…who also still hasn’t quite gotten over him.

Together, they journey through Hell to find Trey’s far more devious ex, encountering the most sinister, wicked, and perverse of God’s creations along the way.

Here’s hoping they can wrap it all up before the final installment…

*This is not a standalone, so for the most satisfying reading experience, I recommend you read CLIPPED before embarking on the adventure contained in this book..

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: As with the first book this one is full of fast paced action and twists and turns. Trey goes to hell to find Kid and save him from Vera, his ex. Meanwhile Kinzar is on his own mission to stop a weapon that will destroy humanity and everything else.

I was amazed at how well the story flowed. I was awestruck with the details. The brutality at times had me cringing and thinking how could this be, but it works with this series. There is quite a bit going on throughout as it’s a journey in and of itself.

The story almost seems to take a life of it’s own as it progresses. The dangers that follow are edge of your seat worthy. There is no shortage of villains in this epic series as well as good guys to boot.

I simply am awestruck by this series.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Timorn is having trouble with his being king but an emissary unexpectedly shows up wanting Timorn and his group to come with him to the dragon King. Meanwhile Dalannin travels toward the same goal as Timorn. I liked the different POV’s throughout this adventurous story.

The path is fraught with danger around every corner. An interesting mix of characters are inter-spaced throughout this magical and highly engaging book. I loved everything about the story as it progressed further.

Timorn and his sister are at odds with one another due to Timorn and it shows in the way they interact with one another at times. Seih a captain of the dragon militia and the half dragon proves his worth over and over again and takes his duties seriously.

There is a lot that happens along the journey both good and bad. I was on the edge of my seat at times awaiting the outcome.

Fantastic read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Several characters are tasked with specific tasks to a stop an event from happening. Kabal, Timorn, Ihal, Ishika and Ethesian finally meet and begin to get to know one another as well as see about the skills each have. I found they all worked well together when the time came but before that it seemed a little tense at times.

It was a long and intriguing story that had me enthralled. Yet there did not seem to be any real emotions. But then again with the task ahead of them I understood. All the characters throughout the story both good and bad brought the story to life.

I was intrigue by the plot and the roles each character had to play. Interesting and intriguing this book was a great beginning to the series. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Great read.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3 1/2 Hearts

Blurb: Dying at the hands of government goons was always going to happen. Waking up in a dark and twisted afterlife? Not the plan.

Seraphim has the superhuman ability to control his own brain. Or at least, he used to, before his government-mandated brain surgery. The surgery killed him, but life isn’t over yet. He’s just woken up, shivering and alone, in the rain-soaked alleyway of a city he doesn’t recognize.

Fiend is a childhood monster. Dreamed up by Seraphim’s friend Wish, he was imprisoned in Wish’s subconscious until the birth of Wish City, a place for people with superhuman abilities to take refuge after death. Now Fiend is free—and in charge—and he’s on the hunt for anyone with abilities once they cross over.

Eager to play with his new toy, Fiend quickly makes contact with Seraphim. Lost and injured, Seraphim lets Fiend slither into his heart. But under the aching pleasure the two find with each other is a hunger that can’t be denied, and lurking in the shadows of the neon city are truths neither man nor monster is ready to face.

How to Love a Monster is a gay erotic horror romance featuring twisted and kinky M/M sex, a diabolical love interest, and an HEA ending.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This was a strange story to read for me. Wish City was not what I expected it to be. It was a bizarre mix of creepy and grungy. Sera is promised great things after his death but ends up in Wish City. Sera himself has awesome abilities to do anything with his mind.

Fiend, I really have no words to describe him or what he is. He eats brains so a zombie? He sets his sights on Sera only to be attracted to him. I loved all the characters and their unique abilities.

Good read and entertaining.

You will take control of Fayt and guide him on his path, but be careful, for not everyone posing as an ally will lead you down the road to freedom.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I have read one interactive story many years ago but I have to say this one is much better. You make Fayt’s, a half human/ half elf, decisions for him as instructed throughout the story. The prison is a dismal place that fills you with dread at every turn. The Warden is a dreadful man full of malice and evil at every turn. The atmosphere is spooky and dangerous as our MC tries to keep a low profile.

Though I was a little disturbed by the non-con I still enjoyed the story and where it took me. I will be reading it again and choosing different options to see where else the story ends besides the one I chose.

Fantastic read and highly recommended but I will warn you there are scenes of non-con depending on your choices.
