Review for Highlander Betrayed by Laurin Wittig

highlander betrayed

My Rating: 4/5

Author: Laurin Wittig
Title: Highlander Betrayed (Guardians of the Targe)

Genre: Historical Fiction

Background:

Amazon Description:
Hidden deep in the rugged Scottish Highlands lies the Highland Targe, an ancient relic guarded for centuries by clan MacAlpin. It is said the Targe can shield the heart of the Highlands from invaders and now, as part of his plan to crush the Scottish rebellion, the English king wants the Targe for himself…

Rowan MacGregor, orphaned niece to the chief of the MacAlpins and the rock her family depends upon, is worried. With the dwindling health of her aunt, the Guardian of the Targe, the protections that have kept the clan safe and prosperous are fading, and the new Guardian, one of her cousins, has yet to be chosen. Rowan wants nothing more than to see the clan protected again, but when it seems that will never happen, she despairs—even when a handsome and charming stranger comes to her aid.

Nicholas fitz Hugh is not what he seems. Half-English, half-Scottish, he turned his back on his Scottish heritage early in his life, giving his loyalty to England instead. Now he is a talented and cunning spy charged with finding and stealing the Highland Targe for his king.

But when Nicholas finds himself falling for the bonny Rowan and wanting to protect the family she holds so dear, he is forced to choose between his king’s will and his own: Will he betray his king and his mission? Or will he turn his back on the woman he has come to love?

Opinions:

Highlander Betrayed is a story of an English spy, Nicholas, who seeks out Scotland’s Targe (“a shield”) for King Edward. Nicholas’s father was English who forced himself on a Scottish woman. Nicholas grew up for 12 years in Scotland before he left to live with his father. Nicholas eventually becomes the most trustworthy and successful spy for King Edward. When King Edward wants to conquer Scotland, he sends Nicholas to retrieve the Targe – a shield that Scotsmen believe protects Scotland from invaders. With it, King Edward believes that he will be successful in his conquest. All does not go as planned. While staking out the MacAlpin’s castle – where rumor has it that the Targe is hidden, Nicholas veers off course rescuing the ladies of the castle from an accident. Now he must prove his worth if he is to learn where the Targe is hidden. However, Rowan (the Chief’s orphaned niece) throws Nicholas off even further – for Nicholas starts to fall in love with her. Nicholas must decide if he should trust his heart or loyalty to the king.

The story is written in third person, mainly following Nicholas and Rowan. Each has had a rough childhood. Nicholas’s mother could no longer look at her son as he grew to look like the man that had raped her. His father was a cruel man, but Nicholas prevailed and became successful in King Edward’s court. Rowan’s parents died when she was young. She doesn’t at first remember what happened, but we learn about it later in the book. She is a strong person that takes care of her family – especially her aunt that is dying. When the two meet, there is an instant attraction. However, Nicholas is a stranger in the clan’s land. On the other hand, he helped rescue Rowan and her cousin. Eventually his secret of being a spy will surface along with the Targe. But what will happen to the potential two lovers? Who will Nicholas betray? And, how will he escape the repercussions of his choices?

The plot moved a long well. The mystery around the Targe is slowly revealed. Also, the reader knows eventually the clan will find out about Nicholas’s job, so that part is not surprising. There is a little magic (Scottish lore) involved with the Targe and those surrounding it. Although not a paranormal read, I like this part of the story. The bad guy(s) was/were fairly one-dimensional though. It would have been interesting if the one person had a little more conflict with the events.

Overall, it was a good read. If you like historical Scottish romances with a little lore, then you might like this book.

Review for The Book of Madness and Cures: A Novel by Regina O’Melveny

madness

My Rating: 3/5

Author: Regina O’Melveny
Title: The Book of Madness and Cures: A Novel

Genre: Historical Fiction

Background:

Amazon Description:
Gabriella Mondini is a rarity in 16th century Venice: a woman who practices medicine. Her father, a renowned physician, has provided her entrée to this all-male profession, and inspired her at every turn. Then her father disappears and Gabriella faces a crisis: she is no longer permitted to treat her patients without her father’s patronage. She sets out across Europe to find where-and why-he has gone. Following clues from his occasional enigmatic letters, Gabriella crosses border after border, probing the mystery of her father’s flight, and opening new mysteries of her own. Not just mysteries of ailments and treatments, but ultimate mysteries of mortality, love, and the timeless human spirit.

Filled with medical lore and sensuous, vivid details of Renaissance life, THE BOOK OF MADNESS AND CURES is an intoxicating and unforgettable debut.

Opinions:

The Book of Madness and Cures takes place during the Renaissance. Gabriella’s father sets off throughout Europe to gather information for his book – The Book of Diseases – which Gabriella continues to work on throughout the book. With letters coming fewer and farther in between, Gabriella sets out to find her father with the help of two servants – Olmina and Lorenzo.

The story is written in first person – Gabriella. Gabriella is not a typical thirty year old woman of the 16th century; she has studied medicine with her father and remains unmarried. In her practice, she has gained female patients that feel more comfortable seeing her than a male doctor. Her father is/was her mentor growing up. He’s her key into the profession. When he goes missing, she not only loses a father but access to the profession she loves. Not able to stand being alone with her mother any longer, she travels throughout Europe with her nanny (now her servant), Olmina, and her husband, Lorenzo. As they travel throughout Europe (going up through Germany to Scotland and back down through France and Spain), they must piece together what has happened to Gabriella’s father. They meet other doctors and interesting people along the way – with a few bumps and turns.

As they piece together the clues left from places where Gabriella’s father left, they come to realize that something might be wrong with him. Something that is not quite right mentally.

The story itself had an interesting premise. I haven’t read a renaissance book similar to this one. Gabriella’s character was done well. She is a smart girl (well, woman) who knows many things about medicine, as well as, many languages. I was surprised that she didn’t actually start her searching where the last letter was known to be from and work backwards from there (if necessary), rather than following her father’s journey from start to finish. It seems like a waste of time if she was really just concerned with finding her father. I was also a little surprised that they didn’t have a little more trouble while travel such long distances as they did. Granted, there are a few scenes within the book that does this; I just expected more of it.

Overall, I liked the book. If you like historical fiction that revolves around women doctors, travel, and difference European countries, this book might be for you.

Genre:
Mystery Series (although this book can be read as a standalone)

Publisher: Crackerjack Publishing
Format: Paperback and ebook
Released: June 18, 2013

Summary: Sometimes justice needs a hand.

When a young lawyer for the number one environmental law firm in Seattle is found dead on Mount Rainier, the police declare it a tragic accident. A desperate mother turns to Raja Williams, a private investigator always willing to help.

Neither the dark, tragic anti-hero nor the James Bond super-hero type, Raja is a wealthy Oxford-educated PI of mixed Caribbean descent who possesses a strong empathic power and a sixth sense for evil that gives him headaches and steers him straight into trouble. His partner Vinny Moore is a gorgeous hipster geek who prefers hacking computers to haute couture.

The discovery of a sinister scorched-earth plot to hide the truth leads Raja and Vinny to the Arctic wilds of Canada and lands them in the middle of a battle over the riches of the pristine wilderness. If assassins don’t kill them, the sub-zero weather just might.

Swimming Upstream is the third intriguing mystery thriller in the Raja Williams Series. The colorful cast of characters and timely topics make it a fun, entertaining story that can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Q & A:

What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
To me, there is no such thing as an aspiring author. You either write or you don’t. Start writing. Keep on writing. Finish what you start. Don’t start with an epic novel, start with a story. I recommend Heinlein’s rules on writing.

What is your favorite book?
That’s a tough one. I have what I would consider eclectic taste in books. I like reading Stephen King, Dr. Seuss, Homer, Mark Twain, Jonathan Swift and Elmore Leonard. The reality of the characters and how well they communicate to me is most important. Suspense and some surprises also help keep me interested.

Review for The Cure by Douglas E. Richards

the cure

My Rating: 4/5

Author: Douglas E. Richards
Title: The Cure

Genre: Thriller/Science Fiction

Background:

Amazon Description:
Erin Palmer had a devastating encounter with a psychopath as a child. Now a grad student and scientist, she’s devoting her life to studying these monsters. When her research catches the attention of Hugh Raborn, a brilliant neuroscientist who claims to have isolated the genes responsible for psychopathic behavior, Erin realizes it may be possible to reverse the condition, restoring souls to psychopaths. But to do so, she’ll not only have to operate outside the law, but violate her most cherished ethical principles.

As Erin becomes further involved with Raborn, she begins to suspect that he harbors dark secrets. Is he working for the good of society? Or is he intent on bringing humanity to its knees?

Hunted by powerful, shadowy forces, Erin teams up with another mysterious man, Kyle Hansen, to uncover the truth. The pair soon find themselves pawns in a global conspiracy–one capable of destroying everything Erin holds dear. And forever altering the course of human history . . .

At a time when society seems to be facing an epidemic of psychopathic monsters, The Cure explores this condition, and the surprisingly thorny ethical and moral dilemmas surrounding it, within an explosive, thought-provoking, roller-coaster-ride of a thriller that will have readers turning pages deep into the night.


Opinions:

The Cure starts off by giving the reader the background of the main character, Erin Palmer, that you will need for the rest of the book. In the prologue, the reader learns how her life completely changes when – as a twelve year old – she meets a psychopath. I will admit that beginning was a little…rough (not writing-wise, but the content.) In other words, the prologue might affect some people. Although there is violence in later parts of the book, it is different than the prologue; so if this does bother you, keep reading. You should be fine afterwards. The story skips ahead to when Erin is a grad student. Taking a negative and turning it into a positive, Erin spends her life dedicated to understanding psychopaths. Her research catches the eye of several people. When she first started her studies, she wanted to discover a way to detect psychopaths from a distance – sort of like a remote. She admits that this would not be possible for several reason – one being ethics. Erin later is contacted by Hugh Raborn – who is also studying psychopathy. He recruits Erin to helping find a cure for psychopathy. To do this, Erin must perform certain treatments to prison inmates (who were discovered to be psychopaths due to their brain patterns) without their knowledge or anyone else’s. This sort of research could have her sent to prison herself. However, Erin finally discovers the right dosage for the cure. When she goes in person – she only seen him through Skype – to tell Hugh about it, she finds out something is wrong. The pursuit begins. She doesn’t know who she can trust, but ends up partnering with Kyle Henson. Together they must overcome their pursuers and try to help save the world.

The story is written in third person, mostly following Erin and Kyle. Erin is a strong character. Her past, obviously, pushed her to be this way. She is intelligent, beautiful and trained to take care of herself. She has a little bit of a trust issue – expectedly so – but that does not stop her from making a few friends. She has dedicated her life to overcoming the one thing that changed her life so dramatically. Now she must use her knowledge to discover if the people she has been in contact with her are psychopaths themselves. Kyle joins up to help Erin and her delivery of the psychopathy cure. Kyle is an intelligent physicist. He is not well trained in defense but he has the ambition to try his best. The characters were well written and multidimensional.

The plot moved along well. There is action and twists and turns along the way. I was a little surprised at the sci-fi part in it. (I won’t say too much to avoid any spoilers.) Despite this part being out of my normal genre reads, I did enjoy the book. It kept me on my toes.

So who should read this? If you like thrillers and science fiction, this book would be for you. If you like one or the other of those genre, you might also find The Cure enjoyable.

Review for Fire of the Dragon by Lori Dillon

fire of the dragon

My Rating: 4/5

Author:  Lori Dillon
Title:  Fire of the Dragon (Bestiary Series, Volume 1)

Genre:  Paranormal/Historical Romance

Background:

Amazon Description:
Being sent back in time to the Middle Ages wouldn’t be so bad if the knight in shining armor who comes to your rescue didn’t swoop down in the form of a fire-breathing dragon. Unfortunately for Jill Donahue, that’s just the way things have been going in her life lately. A Maiden Wrenched back in time through the magical power of an old dragon tapestry found in a vintage clothing store, Jill Donahue lands in an ancient medieval town where the villagers decide to sacrifice her to the local dragon. As if the threat of being eaten alive by a giant flying lizard isn’t bad enough, she learns there’s a curse surrounding the tapestry and she has to break it in order to get back to her time. But she isn’t the only one whose fate is tied to the ancient weaving… A Dragon Baelin of Gosforth is a valiant knight who has been cursed by a vindictive witch to live as a dragon for eleven months out of each year. Now he has thirty days to break the curse or he turns back into a fire-breathing beast and, as much as he hates to admit it, he needs Jill’s help to do it. And A Curse Forced to face many challenges along the way—from the harsh world they travel through to the fiery passion they both try to deny—each is determined to break the curse so the other can get their happily-ever-after. And it just might work, if Jill can manage to overlook the fire-breathing, bat-winged remnants of Baelin’s dragon half long enough to see the man beneath the beast and get the job done.

Opinions:

Fire of the Dragon is a story of a modern woman thrust back in time to help a dragon/man break a curse. While shopping for her niece’s birthday, Jill comes upon a weird tapestry that takes her back to 13th century England. Here, the villagers sacrifice her to a dragon – a yearly tradition in that village. When the dragon takes her back to its lair, Jill learns that the dragon is not all what he seems. Cursed to live as a dragon for 11 months out of the year, Baelin (the dragon) becomes human for one month – whereupon he tried to break the curse. To break the evil curse, a maiden must complete three challenges. With normal dangers of medieval life, adding some dragons and evil witches does not make it any safer. Jill must help Baelin if she is ever to get home again.

The story is written in third person mostly following Jill and Baelin. Jill, a modern girl, is never short on speaking her mind. Doing so in the 13th century is not the wisest thing. Jill is a strong character. She has her flaws but she has bravery and good heart. At times I did get tired of her 21st century sayings. I mean, she knows she’s in medieval England; wouldn’t you try to tone down your 21st slang/sayings a little bit to be understandable? Baelin is a knight that was cursed by the Dark Witch. He has been trying for over 200 years to break the curse, but no maiden has gotten close until now. Bound by his knightly honor and virtues, he tries to help Jill break the curse but doing so is not easy for the medieval knight. Baelin, in all sense, is a good man. One thing I don’t get is how – being able to hide his weird dragon features while human – did no one notice the fork tongue?

The plot follows the couple as they embark to break the curse. The first challenge was interesting and one that I did not hear of before. There was a long break between the first and the second challenge. During that break, interesting things happen – such as meeting a dragon slayer along the way. As I was getting closer to the end and still had not reached the second challenge, I was a little worried that this would be broken up into another book. Do not fear readers! Jill and Baelin’s story is all wrapped up in this book. The next book seems to be about another character from this story. I do wish there was an epilogue in this book just to tie up some loose ends (Ha! A tapestry pun!) – such as, how the other characters handled the ending results of this story.

Overall, I enjoyed the story. If you like medieval England, dragons, and time travel, then you should give this book a try.
