    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Story

    This book was not exactly what I expected, however, it was very captivating. It is a lovely romance without being harlequinesque, sexy without being crude. The characters are very well developed and likeable. I found it easy to relate to both main characters. Overall, a well written book.

    National best-selling author Frank Peretti is an undisputed master of supernatural thrillers. The Oath has sold nearly a million copies and won the ECPA Gold Medallion Award for best fiction. When a nature photographer is killed and mutilated while camping, common sense points to a rogue bear on the prowl. But the search for answers uncovers a century of sin-and a beast of ghastly power. Filled with chilling suspense and unforgettable imagery, The Oath is an epic tale of good versus evil.

    This was a little different than I expected. The pace is a little bit up and down, sometimes fully captivating, others bordering on boring. Overall I enjoyed it.

    Best-selling novelist Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich is a lucky man and he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a children's book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed "Spooky," and a non-collie named Lassie, who's all but part of the family. So Cubby knows he shouldn't let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to him.

    It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

    Story

    The story kicks off with a bang and doesn't stop until the end, and I see potential for a sequel. A husband and wife social worker team take their infant son and 6 troubled teens who are in their care for a final camping trip on a secluded island. When a campfire ghost story starts to become reality, the twists and turns are unexpected.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    Story

    I really loved this book. It is a great story, not gory for those who avoid King for that reason. A retired detective is taunted by the murderer who got away. In the process he meets a woman who brings new hope to his life.

    One of my favorite things about this book is the way the main character interact with each other. Sometimes it makes you smile, other times it makes you want to cry. The characters of Bill, Janie, Jerome and Holly all interact so well and interestingly.

    Loved the book.

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Story

    I found this book hard to follow due to the number of subplots. It was constantly jumping from one scene to another, many of which either had such a thin connection or the connection was so deep in the book that it was irrelevant.

    The book also ended suddenly without resolution, so it you really get into it, you have to continue to buy the rest of the series to get to the answers.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Less a zombie book than one would expect. The plot focuses more around a fictional area of the government focused on bringing down terrorists who are trying to bring the zombie creating plague down upon the world.

    In 1968, after the first zombie outbreak, Wanda Mayhall and her three young daughters discover the body of a teenage mother during a snowstorm. Wrapped in the woman's arms is a baby - stone-cold, not breathing, and without a pulse. But then his eyes open and look up at Wanda, and he begins to move.The family hides the child - whom they name Stony - rather than turn him over to authorities who would destroy him. Against all scientific reason, the undead boy begins to grow....

    Not your average zombie tale, less ravaging of humans than normal. More the tale of a zombie baby rescued by a family and kept hidden. One day, he realizes that he is not the only one. Then Stony grows up to become a zombie activist.

    In this Hugo-nominated novel, an alien walks into a museum and asks if he can see a paleontologist. But the arachnid ET hasn't come aboard a rowboat with the Pope and Stephen Hawking (although His Holiness does request an audience later). Landing at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the spacefarer, Hollus, asks to compare notes on mass extinctions with resident dino-scientist Thomas Jericho.

    Story

    This is definitely not a religious tale although this is a part of it.

    Aliens come to earth and who do they want to see? Not the president, prime minister or the queen. Not the Pope, Dalai Lama or other religious leaders. No, they want to see a paleontologist, to help find God. The atheist paleontologist and religious alien work together to find God.
