Crack the Darkest Sky Wide Open

Crack the Darkest Sky Wide Open - Eric Arvin, Abigail Roux, Jason Huffman-Black, T.J. Klune, S.A. McAuley, SJD Peterson "The Demon of Jericho" by Eric Arvin is a dark, tense, well-written story of the angel Goshen who is sent to save the hill town of Jericho. It is an effective blend of creepy and grisly and not for the faint of heart. There is not too much that can be said about this story without major spoilers, what I can say is you will be on the edge of your seat, pulled into a dark, vivid world of the fantastic. I try to avoid gruesome and harsh, but I'm so glad I read this. I loved the strong writing, the extensive world building and the main characters - I also adored Jeb who is a side character. Definitely recommended ~ 4.5 Stars

"A Cruel Thing" ~ Oh, my God, was it heartbreaking. I think Abi broke me on this one! If my heart hadn’t already been broken before by TJ Klune’s story, it sure was by the time I finished this one! My heart in shredded tatters, this story made me cry so hard, I actually had to put the book down for a short while because I couldn’t see through the tears, but I still thought this story was brilliant! ... full review at Live Your Life, Buy The Book

"John & Jackie" ~ John and Jackie, told from the POV of Jack, is a love story encompassing decades, which is explored via five flashbacks – key moments in the lives of John Kemp and Jack Ford. The book starts out in the present, where eighty-three year old John is recording a video with his husband, Jackie (also eighty-three), manning the camera. It becomes immediately obvious that John is seriously ill and has extracted a promise from his loving husband. But before that promise can be fulfilled with the coming sunset, there’s a little time left to reflect on the long and fully-lived partnership of these two men. And, wow, is their story brought to life! Second page in and I was already tearing up! Not because the story was despondent and full of sadness, but because that’s how well TJ Klune can paint a picture with words.... full review at Live Your Life, Buy The Book
