Review: The Final Reconciliation



Blurb
33958141TAKE OFF YOUR MASK.

Thirty years ago, a progressive rock band called The Yellow Kings began recording what would become their first and final album. Titled “The Final Reconciliation,” the album was expected to usher in a new renaissance of heavy metal, but it was shelved following a tragic concert that left all but one dead.

The sole survivor of that horrific incident was the band’s lead guitarist, Aidan Cross, who’s kept silent about the circumstances leading up to that ill-fated performance—until now.

For the first time since the tragedy, Aidan has granted an exclusive interview to finally put rumors to rest and address a question that has haunted the music industry for decades: What happened to The Yellow Kings?

The answer will terrify you.

Inspired by The King in Yellow mythos first established by Robert W. Chambers, and reminiscent of cosmic horror by H. P. Lovecraft, Laird Barron, and John Langan, comes The Final Reconciliation—a chilling tale of regret, the occult, and heavy metal by Todd Keisling.

it was an amazing tale, liked it so much. one of the things that was more enticing for me was the magic part it was so mystical and interesting, now the way they got tricked was a little weird but understandable.

I think one have the potential to be a must cult book, really a wonderful plot with interesting characters and a little of mythology.

it was pretty good, after the short of Xmas night, this was pretty interesting since you know a little background for Kath and all, it had a lots of twists this one that were very welcomed.

the narrator voice was nice too, I could feel the emotions surging within her voice.

the plot and premise of the book is pretty cool they have werewolf's, vampires, humas trying to help but something I noticed was the little cameos here and there, they were fun, lol Nora Roberts, and that did make it pretty enjoyable for me actually that they were on a quest of their own but since they were teenagers and such they didn't knew that much of the world but were learning fast.

a delectable reading and hearing.

Review
it was an interesting story about this guy and his dad, he was remembering about a forest of his childhood and some other things that happened in there, now he have grown and wants to go back there. I liked that it was pretty easy to follow and to learn some things about what he remember. if there is a full novel about that one I would want to hear it or read it.

Review: Pound of Flesh



Blurb
32787078My name is Roy Morgan, and I’m not your average Atlanta cop. For one, most of them don’t have to kill people to stay alive. I do. It’s a half-demon thing. Yep, that’s right, half-demon. It’s awesome, especially since I’m half-warlock too, and those two sides don’t much get along.

Still, that and a buck will get you a candy bar. So it’s all good.

Or at least it was.

See, I had this dumb idea to stop a robbery in progress and have myself a snack. Turns out these weren’t your run of the mill robbers. No, these were demonic slavers, there to capture the district attorney and sell her off to the highest bidding demon in Hell.

Now if I want to stop them, I’m going to have to fight my way through a city full of hellfire-flinging, gun-toting, spell-weaving demons.

My name is Roy Morgan, and I think I’ll have seconds.

as usual this urban fantasy had me entertained and on edge it was fantastic. I always like how cipriano have a knack for telling stories and the perfect balance he seems to make with other authors so the story will be funny, with a lot of action and clever.

definitely a good book to pick out at any moment.
