|Watch Me (A Touched Trilogy, #3)||penang||Novel||2||n/a||Apr 19, 2014|
Summary:Watch Me is the final book in A Touched Trilogy. Don't worry if you haven't read the previous 2 books as each book in the trilogy follows a different sister. Chloe's always know the future was black and white. There was no changing what was coming. But lately the visions she's had have been skewed a bit left of center. No longer was she seeing definites. Then she sees a vision of the new guy, mixed in with blood, a gun, and the bodies of the people closest to her. Chloe must make a decision to either accept the certainty of her gift of prophecy as she's always believed it or use it to force a change to the future.
|Mystery of the Black Hollow||theLink||Novel||2||n/a||Apr 11, 2014|
Summary:SUMMARY: Three young friends are determined to discover the truth about the mysterious Black Hollow that plagues their clan. Patrollers near the Hollow are regularly disappearing, but the clan’s Elders seem unable to do anything about it. EOD is the female leader of the group, wise for her age, inquisitive, balanced, and a peace maker. WOC, also a girl, is her best friend. Energetic, impulsive, brave, and intuitive, Woc is the driving force behind their commitment to face the Hollow. STRAH, a boy, is bright, logical, cautious, and fearful. The trio seeks the help and counsel of ODO, an old hermit who long ago lost two offspring to the Hollow. To ensure the three are ready to face the dangers ahead, Odo requires them to meet several difficult challenges, most of which the reader can participate in. After each success, Odo shares a clue about the Hollow in the form of a riddle. Together, the trio faces his challenges, sorts out the clues, and visits the Hollow. They watch in horror as another clan brother is taken by a large beast, they figure out what lures the patrollers into the Hollow, and they face a beast, themselves, head on and survive. They leave the Hollow armed with sufficient knowledge to ensure that no clan member will ever again be taken, but some of the Hollow's mysteries remain for the Elders to decipher. All three come into their own as they together face the hermit’s challenges and the harsh realities of the Black Hollow. In the process, their friendship deepens and matures, and each one is changed. But, as the surprise ending reveals, all is not as it seems.
|Founders||graymartin||Novel||4||n/a||Apr 10, 2014|
Summary:Born a lowly Settler, sixteen-year-old Wil isn't supposed to have the Gift, but he does. Like the Great One himself, he can sift the minds of those around him, probing every hidden thought. The Gift has transformed his life, lifting him from a Settler's Camp to the Guardian Academy - an elite school where children like him learn how to use their power. He's been taught that Guardians are a force for good, charged with protecting the people of Neoden from the evil of selfish thought. But when he and his fellow cadets come under attack, those beliefs shatter. Why would the Settlers he's been sent to protect want to kill him? When a voice from the past reaches out to him, he's forced to face a new and terrifying possibility: maybe powerful evil still exists in the world. And maybe he's becoming a part of it. I'm especially interested to hear whether or not the story, characters and dystopian world hook you. Is the world-building interesting or cliche? Same question for the main characters. Nits, of course, are always welcome! Thanks!
|Legend of the Superstition Gold||MrsPiddles||Novel||0||n/a||Apr 9, 2014|
Summary:Midnight and Annie finally get to participate in the Shadow Riders yearly trail-ride into the mysterious Superstition Mountains near Phoenix, Arizona. Annie has read all about the legends and stories of the Lost Dutchman gold mine, but is only amused at the ghost stories that go with the legend. Midnight knows, though, and warns his beloved rider of ‘The Others’ who live in the mountains. With the magical telepathic connection shared by Annie and her black pony, they enjoy a typical overnight trail-ride, until Annie comes too close to the truth about the Superstition Gold. This is the third story in the Black Pony Adventures, a story about a pony who finally meets the right rider, and Annie, who finally meets that one special horse. Is she a horse whisperer? Maybe, but for sure she can hear Midnight’s thoughts, and he can hear hers. Books one and two, The Black Pony and Midnight and the Race Horse, were self-published through Create Space near the end of 2013. Although this is a series, it is not a trilogy and each book refers to other books, but is not dependent on them. The audience is 9-12, topic for all books is horses with emphasis on barrel racing, trail riding, and dealing with real life issues. Give me whatever suggestions strike you, but I’m mostly interested in pacing, plot, and character development. This is a story within a story, so the first few chapters may come across as a bit slow, but don’t miss a word.

|REACTION TIME||R. M. Keegan||Novel||2||n/a||Jan 31, 2014|
Summary:The action in this book starts in the fourth chapter but the tension between the two main protagonists starts at the beginning. It works only if the protagonist is strongly enough drawn to interest the reader in her problems. Is she? If not, how can it she be strengthened as a character?
|Chloe||nio16||Novel||1||n/a||Jan 26, 2014|
Summary:Young adult fantasy. This is the first of a series of books which will span Chloe’s years of training. She has been selected as a trainee to the Preases who are a group of powerful beings. They each possess an orb that grants them specific powers which they use to defend the earth’s dimensions. The inhabitants are humans mixed with other beings from each of earth’s dimensions. During her first year of training, her best friend is kidnapped and she sets out to rescue her. This is the first in a series of books. The death of her predecessor and the discovering who killed him is the back story that doesn't get resolved until the last book- but each book will provide a small piece of the puzzle. I would like to know if the story is interesting and any creative title ideas (I am at a loss for a good one). I would appreciate feedback any other comments that come to mind. I look forward to all constructive criticism! Thank you to everyone who took time to read this.
