Alien Manifesto: The Adventures of the Human Thomas Scott by [Embry, T.W.]

Amazon– Alien Manifesto

When orphaned ex-Navy S.E.A.L. Thomas Scott decides upon a life of crime, he does not expect to be recruited to join an elite Special Forces operation charged with stealing an alien artifact. Especially a mixed-species alien team headed by inter-galactic billionaire Snarth. The close-knit team soon becomes Tom’s family in more senses than one, which complicates matters when the mysterious artifact turns out to hold secrets that may plunge the whole of the known universe into a devastating war…



So I love a good sci-fi story, but many times I’ll get a little bit lost in the science part—especially if things don’t make perfect sense, it’ll go right over my head. That’s not the case with Alien Manifesto by T.W. Embry. He gave me the sci-fi fix I tend to crave but without the headache that usually goes along with it.

Ex. Navy S.E.A.L. Tom Scott is on the wrong side of the law when he suddenly finds himself recruited by an alien intergalactic billionaire named Snarth to join an elite special forces operation. He joins this mixed-species team, their first assignment to steal an alien artifact. This eventually leads them to a planet once ruled by a species called the Ones, (at one time the most feared alien force in all the known universes). With the Ones supposedly now extinct, they go to this planet in search of precious jewels, but find much more than they bargained for, all their lives placed in danger. Sound like a fun ride? You bet, and much more besides.

This is a super-fast-paced story, almost too fast for my personal taste, but sure to keep you on your toes from start to finish. A real page-turner if I ever came across one. I read this in two nights, and it would’ve been one if I hadn’t needed to fit my work in there somewhere. Never once did I feel the urge to skim, and being a writer and editor myself, this is saying a lot. Believe me, if the story lags, even a little, I skim.

So even though I grinned like a little kid through most of it, I give this story four over five stars because I did crave a little more depth from the characters, especially at the start. This is where that fast pace comes into play. By the end of this first story in the series though, I felt I had a good feel for all the characters involved: which included Tom, another human known as the Irishman, a feline assassin, an alien canine, a spider, and Snarth (their billionaire boss).

Here’s the deal. I finished this story and immediately fired up the kindle to go in search of the next novel in line by Embry. Should be enough said. Go out and pick up a copy for yourself. You won’t be sorry.


Soul of a Warrior (Immortal Warriors Book 1) by [Holm, Denna]

A handsome blond stranger shows up at Kimi Wicker’s place of work claiming to be her mate. But he also claims to be from another world. She does what any sane woman would do in her situation. She runs. Tagging along are her two best friends and a feisty tabby cat. No one could anticipate the second stranger showing up, one with a completely different agenda.

Kimi and her friends are abducted by the second man, a vampire, then tortured and abandoned on a hostile alien world. Given only the clothes on their back, they must now try to find a way back home again.

One man will do everything in his power to see Kimi and her friends are brought safely back home, even sacrifice his own life. The second man wants Kimi and her mate to suffer, alive, but forever out of reach of each other. Kimi and her friends must work together against astronomical odds for any hope of surviving this nightmare.

Latest review at Amazon
5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting mix of genres, September 7, 2016
This review is from: Soul of a Warrior (Immortal Warriors) (Volume 1) (Paperback)
The book is about a character named Kimberly Wicker. She’s also known as Kimi Wicker. She works at a country western bar in Oregon. It has an interesting start being thrown into the supernatural elements rapidly in the first chapter with the introduction of vampires right away. These are introduced with a couple of strangers walking into her bar. The first of them ordered a water and nothing else. The second has an interesting mental exchange with Kimi in a telepathic almost exchange apparently imparting something to her. It’s hard to write an original concept these days and well to be honest this is certainly original. It combines several elements from different genres. I happened to enjoy it as I enjoy all the genres that were combined so for me this wasn’t a bad story at all. However others may not. It’s a bold and risky proposition anytime you combine multiple genre story arcs that usually aren’t found together. But in some cases like this one in my opinion it can turn out well done. Unlike many of the books on amazon there are next to no errors in grammar, formatting, and it’s a respectable length. Clearly the author takes pride in their work enough to do final clean ups and edits. This is refreshing. I suggest picking it up for yourself and deciding for yourself to be honest.

THE HAARP LETTERS by Anthony J. Gerst

The HAARP Letters: A Climate-Changing Reality by [Gerst, Anthony]

Amazon– The Haarp Letters

The story begins in Alaska near the HAARP Complex, one of five previously existing locations refitted as doomsday shelters in case of a Rapid Climate Changing event. Big Thunder was that event.

Around mid-century a long overdue earthquake at the northern periphery of the Mid-Atlantic-Ridge caused half of the pockmarked ice-sheet to cascade off Greenland and the following tsunami crashed global civilization. Two weeks later due to pressure being released on the island, the landmass jutted upwards releasing methane hydrates and other greenhouse gases, jettisoning most of the remaining ice. As a result, the thermal oceans currents shut down completely, creating the mid-latitude badlands and ushered in a paleolithic atmospheric/hydrological pattern.

After fighting their way north through the Badlands, Abram and the J-Squad rescue four lady scientists under fire from cannibalistic marauders. These scientists, who run the HAARP Complex, are tasked with assisting any survivors in rebuilding civilization. In their gratitude they invite the J-Squad to take up residence at the compound.

What follows is an adventure from combating marauders to starting a sustainable culture; the HAARP Letters deals with personal, civil and interpersonal dichotomies. A few issues this mismatched group confronts are the creation of an educational-based merit system, a disputed new religion, Doni Forever, based on Earth First principles, and the same old vices of greed and power lust, that have plagued mankind as once again these arise as civilization begins it journey toward a new purpose on Mother Earth.



Okay, everybody likes an end-of-the-world type story, right? The human race refusing to give up under astronomical odds placed against it. Imagine Hunger Games only better. Of the different scenarios I’ve come across in recent years, I have to say The HAARP Letters by Anthony J. Gerst is one of the best.  An environmental disaster on Earth leaves a militant group, refugees and scientists on a mission to re-establish civilization. They are thrown in together at the HAARP compound, besieged by violent, cannibalistic marauders. They plan to found a new Gaian religion, their goal to set up and care for the world’s remaining resources.

The story is told through a series of correspondence between Abram and his old friend Bill, another survivor living at a different bunker. The beginning is just a tad slow and I admit to struggling with some of the religious elements presented. But if you can put your own personal beliefs aside for the purpose of entertainment, this is a great novel. I worried at the start that a series of letters might be slow and dull, but it wasn’t, not even a little. The characters are instantly brought to life, and the setting brilliant and imaginative. You don’t feel as though you are reading a series of letters. Gerst expertly pulls you in, makes you feel for these people and the world they find themselves trying to survive in, and builds toward an ending that leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one. The HAARP Letters is definitely one you’ll want to take a look at.

STORMHAVEN RISING by Eric Michael Craig

Stormhaven Rising (Atlas and the Winds Book 1) by [Craig, Eric Michael]

Stormhaven rising– Amazon

When a privately funded team of astronomers discover a large asteroid on a trajectory toward earth, their discovery sets civilization on a collision course with the unyielding wheel-work of the universe. The reality of physics, and the time frame from discovery to impact, pushes humanity into an almost impossible race against extinction.

Fearing panic, the US government chooses to keep the existence of the asteroid secret until it has launched a mitigation project. However Colton Taylor, the corporate sponsor for the detection program that made the discovery, also knows the truth. Throwing his technological empire into an independent strategy for survival, Taylor believes that Stormhaven’s secrets might just give humanity a chance.

Unfortunately, implementing his plan will put his knowledge of the looming disaster in the public eye, and the US government sees that as a serious threat to national security. They are willing to go to extraordinary means to contain that risk, but when he pushes out and forms an international alliance against them, the Administration finds hiding the truth is far less important than the fight for survival.

Some secrets are far too big to contain.

Stormhaven Rising is a visionary look at what happens when crossed purposes collide with hard reality on the precipice of doomsday.

Book One of Atlas and the Winds


Five out of five stars

Okay, you realistic sci-fi fanatics out there, you’re gonna love this one. I felt as though I’d been placed into the hands of a master science fiction storyteller. Real characters, (faults and all) plausible realistic plot, and exciting, descriptive setting.

A large asteroid is headed straight for earth, humans facing almost certain extinction if it hits. The government, not surprising, wants to keep the asteroid a secret, an attempt to hold off world-wide panic. But there are others, such as Colton Taylor, (a corporate sponsor for the detection program that made the asteroid discovery) who believe they have a plan that might give humans a chance to survive. But it means putting the disaster in the public eye and the government doesn’t want this.

There was a Bruce Willis movie made a while back that had this same type of plot disaster, but it had more of a comedic feel, at least in my opinion. This story sounds plausible and realistic from start to finish. I never once questioned the science involved, and no magic either. No abracadabra used to try to help explain futuristic scenarios. They discuss potential problems faced should they tried to blow up the asteroid, to attempts to somehow push it off course. I enjoy science fiction novel like this one, but often I’ll find myself feeling a bit lost, struggling to keep up with the science part, especially if it doesn’t make complete sense. Though there are technical issues galore here, I never once struggled to understand. You feel as though this asteroid is really headed our way and we need these people, real people, to come up with a way to help save us, the technology offered totally believable.

A well-deserved five out of five stars.

BROKEN ENGLISH by Marita A. Hansen

Broken English (Broken Lives Book 1) by [Hansen, Marita A.]

Broken English– Amazon

For me, the name Dante conjured up two images. The first was the epic depictions of Hell from Dante’s Inferno, with people burning for their sins. The second image was a sexual depiction. I don’t know where it came from, but as far back as I can remember, I had always associated the name Dante with a beautiful and sexy man. I’d imagined a dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous lothario, the type who could capture a woman’s heart with just one look. Dante was the Fabio of my generation, the heartthrob that got women’s hearts beating fast, made us want this man to rip our clothes off and to throw us onto the bed.

Little did I know that the Dante that walked into my life was very different from the one I’d imagined. Oh, he was dark-haired, dark-eyed, gorgeous, even a lothario … just … he wasn’t a man. He was a fifteen-year-old boy who was going to send me to the Hell his namesake had written about.

My review:

Five out of five stars

Every now and then a novel comes along that really takes me by surprise. Broken English by Marita A. Hansen is one of them. I think I went into this story thinking it would be a twisted tale about forbidden sex, an older married woman finding herself attracted to a younger teenage boy. Clara had her demons to fight, no doubt about it, but I’m wondering how any of us women would have fared against a street-smart kid like Dante Rata. I alternated between feeling sorry for the young man, (wanting to take him home so I could take care of him) to wishing I could stick a bar of soap in his potty mouth. But then I also wished he’d been a little older so I could justify in my head how Clara felt about him, because I understood it.

Dante is fifteen going on thirty. He’s had a hard life, his good looks not doing him any favors. He is used and abused, mostly by women, and craving someone to treat him like a real person, and not just a play-toy. Not that he doesn’t enjoy the ladies. He’s got a tough outer shell, built up over years of abuse, and it’s difficult for him to let anyone get close. Clara starts out wanting to help him, but he’s not like any other student she’s ever dealt with. A little out of her league.

It’s difficult to say too much else without giving everything away and I don’t want to ruin the story for you. Don’t go into this thinking it’s only about sex. There is way more involved that you’d have to read to understand. I don’t give out five stars easily, but this one definitely deserves it. Give it a read. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.



Rosita is married with two children.  She has worked as a legal secretary, a childminder, nursery assistant, and as an accommodation provider for fostered teenagers. She attributes former health problems to not eating properly as a child, thus many of her books are aimed at encouraging healthy eating and have received positive feedback from Jamie Oliver’s team.  In addition several of them raise money for various charities.

Emma Tate hates eating anything nutritious. When her despairing mother buys her a pretty plate to encourage her to eat up her dinner, she is unimpressed – until the elf that lives inside the house on the plate begs her to eat the food blocking his doorway so that he can come out. When she does, she finds proper food is not so bad as she thought! Beautifully illustrated throughout by Lynn Costelloe, Emma Tate and the Magic Plate is a fun story that encourages children to eat healthily. The author attributes current health problems to unhealthy childhood diet, and dedicates this book to all the parents of fussy eaters out there.

Lynn Costelloe– Illustrator



Format: Kindle Edition
The title,and cover art are eye catching in a pleasant way. Inside the illustrations are colourful with just enough detail for a young audience.The magical Elf in the plate is a fun fantasy children will really enjoy. The concept of a special plate is a great idea parents can use to encourage their children to eat healthy foods. I hope to see the Elf in the plate return for a sequel!
Perhaps a special plate like the one in the book will be available for sale in the future? Maybe as an option with the sequel?

Interview Rosita Bird by Lynne North

Hi all. Are you ready to meet another ‘Crimson Cloak Publishing’ author? Today, we meet Rosita Bird.

 1)    Do you write books as a career, or are you currently still juggling your author time with a full or part time job?

I am retired from Childminding and working at a nursery. I am hoping this will be a new career for me.

2)    Have you always wanted to be an author, or did some time or event in your life set you on the path?

No. I had a mental breakdown in 2005 and as part of the therapy I went to a writing group which was mainly poetry. I enjoyed this. I then wrote my first book ‘Vegetables Count.’

3)    Do you always write in the same genre, or do you sometimes like a change of theme? If you haven’t already, is there another genre you would like to write?

Yes. Most of my books are for young children aged between 3 – 7. I am hoping to write two in the future about my journey through mental health. Also a true story about my parents, how they met. This will need some research as it involves my grandfather who was taken to a camp by Nazi’s during the Second World War from occupied Holland.

4)    As a writer, what is the best thing that has happened to you, and what is that most exciting thing that could happen to you?

I think possibly meeting John L. D. Barnett was good as he helped me get in with his publisher. He was originally going to do illustrations for me but he had a lot on and we had different ideas on illustrations for children. I have been congratulated by Jamie Oliver’s team for my healthy eating books for children and on their Pinterest site. I have also been endorsed by Simon Weston OBE. I have done two books for charity one local Animal Rescue Centre and Care After Combat.

5)    How do you view the promotion, book signings etc. Is it something you enjoy, or do you prefer the writing stage?

I am quite shy and uncomfortable with that sort of thing. I have done it locally. Navigo (Mental Health in Lincolnshire) supported me on my first launch.


Sounds like you never have a dull moment, Rosita! It’s wonderful to have a career that you love so much. Long may you continue to produce such a varied collection of books. Lynne North.

Dragon of Tears– Amazon

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Dragon Tears is a charming fantasy for a wide range of readers! I read this novel to my fourth graders, and they were enchanted by the fast-moving plot and adventures of Patrik as he not only navigates a fantastical world, but also the struggles that beset any youth as he endeavors to grow and mature. Of particular delight to young readers are the well delineated main characters who feel like they are misfits because they can’t engage in particular forms of magic. Yet who doesn’t feel like an outcast between the ages of 8 and 18? As the main characters draw upon each other’s strengths and wisdom, they embark on a journey to save their land anyway, which leaves the reader rooting for these underdogs as they achieve many victories. Vividly told, this is one fantasy tale that brings real-world character building to the young reader’s experience and will make you want to revisit the story again and again.
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Nancy Segovia makes a beautiful read for all ages of morals about no matter our differences and what we were “raised to believe ,” we have the ability to overcome if we can look a little farther and a little deeper than what we have been taught our whole life. In a world such as ours, with society being what it is these days, this book should, in my opinion, be a must in EVERY SCHOOL, AND EVERY GRADE, at least ONCE. Both of my boys will be required to read this as we do homeschooling, but, we also do not allow bigotry OF ANY KIND OR DISCRIMINATION. And without the youngsters in this book, and thankfully the Wizard, whom has actually had real interaction with dragons, helped these ‘races’ or ‘species’. I loved this book, you will too, I think! I received this book in return for an honest review.
