Review: False Gods by Nazri Noor 5 of 5 stars

False Gods (Sins of the Father Book 2)False Gods by Nazri Noor

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Nephilim Mason Albrecht is the son of fallen angel Samyaza and danger is always stalking him no matter what he does or wherever he goes. While he has a home in a forest dimension owned by a goddess he still has to come out of it in order to earn money or purchase things. When a familiar flame wielding Magnus appears he knows he is going to have trouble. Thankfully, a familiar friend comes to help Mason but even with other familiar and unfamiliar new friends (including a time stopping Scion) will need everything they have because the Norse god of mischief (Loki) needs help via a small favour and it will have major ramifications. Can Mason keep everyone (including himself) safe and retain his freedom too?

I loved this story which developed the world that Mason now lives in as well as introducing an old character in order to connect his new and old life. I loved the way Mason is growing up and learning more about his abilities as he navigates the world that he currently lives in. Well written and easy to read and comprehend I can't wait to find out what happens to Mason next.

Review: Knock, Knock… by Dale Mayer 4 of 5 stars

Knock, Knock… (Psychic Visions, #5)Knock, Knock… by Dale Mayer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Shay Lassiter is wealthy and beautiful and spends her time running an organisation called the Lassiter Foundation, but all that meant nothing when her fiance tried to murder her. Now she is far more cautious and uses her knack for reading people to save herself heartache. However, when people connected to the foundation start dying in slightly unexpected or mysterious ways she needs to depend on help from the new man in her life. Computer specialist and ex-cop, Roman Chandler has s secret that could ruin his relationship with Shay. Can he get her to trust him and learn more about him while saving Shay when the killer sets their sights on her?

This was definitely a clever psychic mystery wrapped up into a romance between Shay and Roman. There were parts of this story that I found long-winded and monotonous, and there were parts that I really enjoyed (hence the rating). It was well written and very enjoyable to read. The way that Roman rescues Shay at the end was very clever.

Review: Black Hawaii: A Quentin Black Paranormal Mystery Romance by JC Andrijeski 5 of 5 stars

Black Hawaii: A Quentin Black Paranormal Mystery Romance Black Hawaii: A Quentin Black Paranormal Mystery Romance by JC Andrijeski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All Miri wanted was a vacation so they could spend some time together - especially after Black's recent transformation and Miri getting rid of some of the evil in the world (including her uncle Charles). But the time in Hawaii is not going as she planned - especially when within the first full day a part alien body washes up on the beach. An old friend of Black's asks them to investigate and they feel they have to even though they also have to contend with the paparazzi which stops them blending in with the other wealthy guests. Everything escalates when some turn up alive as they discover something much more sinister at work with Miri in the crosshairs. Can they find a solution and come out of this without a PR disaster?

This was a great story in the series that investigated the difficulties that Quentin Black was experiencing after his transformation in the previous book as well as the fallout from Miri's actions with her uncle Charles. I loved the twist near the end of the story when it appeared that Charles had brainwashed people into believing the opposite of the truth and Black's final solution was a masterstroke - I just wonder what the fallout will be in the next book and it that will cause the seers to leave in this series just like they did at the end of the Bridge and Sword series. I won't spoil the surprise but it will cause you to gasp and wonder if he has lost his mind. Well written and very enjoyable I couldn't put it down until I had finished it (although I had felt bereft at the fact that it was complete too). You do not need to have read the previous books in the series but you will enjoy it far more if you have as you will understand the backstory.

Review: Psychic Visions Box Set 1-3 by Dale Mayer 5 of 5 stars

Psychic Visions Box Set 1-3 Psychic Visions Box Set 1-3 by Dale Mayer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great value collection of the first three books in the Psychic Vision series by Dale Mayer. Well written, great mysteries and easy to read, these can all be read stand-alone although I preferred to read them in order.

#1 Tuesday's Child 5*

Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities after being ridiculed her whole life and so lives on the fringes of society caring for animals (who never judge her). However, she has unknowingly tapped into the actions of a serial killer via his victims and so st experiencing each of the blows in their murder as if it was happening to her too. As much as she dreads it, she feels she must find the detectives investigating the murders and try to help them catch the killer and stop it - if only she can be taken seriously and believed. Detective Brandt Sutherland trusts only physical hard evidence however after initial credulity the more he learns and sees of her, the more he starts to trust her and her observations. However, as they work their way through the clues and get closer to the killer it seems that Sam is the one in danger - can Brandt save her, catch the killer and cope with the very real risk of losing his heart in the process?

I loved this story which had a great mixture of psychic ability, mystery, danger, drama and romance. I became drawn into the story and solving the mystery as to who the serial killer was and if they could work together to save Sam as well as have a chance of a HEA too. Addictive, I started to read it faster and faster as my need to know what happens next grew. Well written, easy to feel and understand and very enjoyable this is a great introduction to the series.

#2 Hide'n Go Seek 5*

Kali Jordon is a celebrated search and rescue specialist with her trusty dog Shiloh. However, Kali has a secret - The Sight inherited from her grandmother allows her to trace the energy to find people on her own - especially if they are victims of violence (especially murder). She is able to keep this secret until a twisted killer decides to challenge her to a game of "hide and go seek" which threatens those who are closet to her. Now she has to rely on FBI Special Agent Grant Summers who has sworn to protect her (even though he believes there is more to Kali and Shiloh's success than meets the eye. As the killer closes his net tighter and tighter around Kali and Grant there is absolutely no place to hide. Can they both keep each other alive and find something special at the same time?

This was a great mystery story with a psychic twist as a madman decided to act God and dish out death as he decided was deserved by innocent people. Through it all Kali struggled to master her psychic skills as well as handle the closeness of another person in her life. I loved the way that Grant did everything he could to be strong while also learning that a strong and feisty woman is not great at taking orders. Well written and very enjoyable I was kept guessing as to know the killer was right up to the final confrontation at the end of the story. This will definitely become addictive as you work through the various candidates and eliminate them.

#3 Maddy's Floor 5*

Medical intuitive and licensed MD Madeleine Wagner is disturbed when patients start dying in the long term care facility she runs for unexpected reasons. Usually, terminally ill patients fight to get to her facility but now an evil force is behind these deaths so she calls on her mentor and friend Stefan for help as she desperately tries to stop the deaths. Detective Drew McNeil has two family members who need Maddy's help but he actually wonders who cares for Maddy especially after the events on her floor in the hospital started to involve him in the investigation of the case but then as he spends more time with Maddy the more involved with her he becomes too. How can these people stop something that no one else can see, feel or even believe?

I loved this story which was very clever and hit all the right notes as a psychic story. I loved the central part of the story and the final result on who was causing the issues. A definite mystery story that kept us guessing until the end of the book. Lots of detail on how psychics and the skills worked that was great for helping to understand how the similar events are going to happen in further books to the series. Well written and easy to understand.
