Reviews 2018

do a limited number of reviews to post on this page.

   I won’t consider porn/heavy erotica/fetish. I like to keep my blog a place where everyone feels comfortable visiting without all the extra permission clicks.  

Contact me. If I agree to review, I’ll request an E-copy of your work which I will NOT share with anyone.

 I’ll read and review and post here.

It will be an honest review.  If I love it, I’ll let people know.   I’m not going to be snarky if I don't—that’s just not my style.  
If you don’t want honest, don’t request a review.

FREE is my favorite four letter ‘F’ word so the review and the spot on this page is FREE.

I have to admit, I don’t read much of this type of novel.  I was turned off a long time ago reading a really bad sci-fi. 
I made myself read this just to eliminate predisposed dislike of the genre. 

Aside from a few grammatical errors, point of view switches and a slow start, this novel was a good read. 
I liked the characters and, once I got into the story, it was good. 

Investigating the author, J. T. Bishop has more reads and if I was into this kind of book, I’d probably look into those.

If you haven’t checked out J. T. Bishop’s work and enjoy a good vs. evil story with alien elements, this is one for you.  Pick up your copy using one of the links here.  Better yet, click on over to J. T. Bishop’s website and read all about her talent.  
Born and raised in Dallas, TX, J. T. Bishop began writing in 2012. Inspired by a video that theorized the meaning of the end of the Mayan calendar, J. T. began the Red-Line trilogy. The video surmised that the earth was the central hub of activity for extraterrestrials thousands of years ago. J.T. didn’t know whether that was true or not, but it did spawn an idea. What if those extraterrestrials were still here? Two years and a lot of work later, the first three Red-Line books were complete, but she’s not done. The Red-Line saga develops as she continues to write new books.

I thought the Christmas season was a good time to finally post this review because it centers around the season.

Thanks to Don Simkovich, also a participant on this blog, for a copy of his work to review. 

This is a character driven novel.  The POV’s don’t shift around.  The descriptions are good and the story flows well.  Occasionally I got lost in the dialogue and had to go back and reread to figure out who was talking at the time but that’s just me.  I usually don’t read this type of novel—the ones where I have to think. (I try not to read stories where names are hard to pronounce either—my brain just doesn’t keep up—but that’s my problem.) Those who regularly read detective/mystery will not get as lost.

It’s a good story and—Good wins in the end which is always….well, Good! The characters are formed well and I believe the plot and situations present in a way that it isn’t made up.
