The Bonds of Blood Book Review Tour and $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway (ends 5/4)



The Bonds of Blood (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #1) 

In the world of Saracin, the Goddess damns the earth that killed her two beloved angels and tears it into six realms. As a reminder of their transgression, each person is branded with a stigmata on their palms as testament of their home realm and their separation from the Goddess.

Thirty years later, in the Holy Realm, Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya, quadruplets whose mother died in childbirth, have just reached their 21st spring and are now adults. When terrible visions depicting the downfall of their family stir within Jovian and Angelica, they struggle to make sense of what they have seen while trying to live a normal life.

After Amber is kidnapped in the night, her three siblings are drawn into a dangerous pursuit across the Great Realms to find her. With every step they uncover more mystery surrounding their family’s past, and something far worse–an ancient enemy that could threaten their hope of ever seeing Amber alive again.

Will this enemy grant the answers they seek, or will she fray the tenuous threads binding them to their old lives?   Buy The Bonds of Blood today and enter a dangerous world of magic!

My Review
It took me a few chapters to realize that the 4 main characters were actually quadruplets, but once I realized that (and it didn’t take long), the book really started coming together. Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya each have some sort of magic, although it is new to each of them. When Amber is kidnapped, the others begin the dangerous journey to bring her back. This book really kept me reading and I can’t wait to see what will happen next. This is a perfect book for any fantasy lover.
About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called “The Calling of the Two” and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

“Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?” He always knew there was a “before” and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.
 

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

My Review

This is exactly the type of book I love to read. I love being transported to another world with magic, adventure, mythology, and suspense.

Curse the Moon – Cold War Rising Book Review Tour



Lee Jackson Brings Heat To The Cold War.

His code-name is Atcho. He leads guerrilla fighters through the US-supported insurgency that rages at the Bay of Pigs in the early days of Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Captured and cast into the island’s worst dungeons, Atcho learns that a phantom-like officer of the Soviet KGB shadows him. Inexplicably released from incarceration and still dedicated to his country, he battles through the bowels of the Kremlin in Moscow, into the granite halls at West Point, and finally to highest levels in Washington, DC. Atcho’s rise opens doors into US National Defense even as the seemingly omniscient KGB officer holds unflinching sway over his actions. His public life clashes with secrets that only he and his tormentor share, isolating him in a world of intrigue among people whom he is determined not to betray – and then he finds that he is the trigger that could spark thermonuclear war.

My Review

I loved the characters in this book, especially Atcho. I really felt like i was right there with him during the book and couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next. I love historical fiction and this book definitely didn’t disappoint.

Disney Sing Into Spring CD Review



My daughter and I were very excited to review Disney music! We were sent the preschool Sing into Spring package, which includes 4 Disney Junior CDs: the Doc McStuffins soundtrack, DJ Shuffle, Jake and the Never Land Pirates / Yo Ho Matey, and the Frozen soundtrack!

Disney Sing Into Son Preschool pack

Of course, we are most excited about the Frozen soundtrack. My daughter has watched Frozen almost every day since we got it. I love Let It Go and my daughter does, too but her new favorite song is Do You Want to Build a Snowman.

My daughter is also excited about the DJ Shuffle CD because it has music from Henry Hugglemonster and Sheriff Callie’s Wild West. It also has tracks from Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. I like that it has the theme song or one of the main songs and a few more from each show. The DJ Shuffle CD also has 3 karaoke tracks at the end if your kids like to sing. You can also access bonus content if you put the CD in your computer.

The Doc McStuffins and Jake and the Neverland Pirates CDs are great, too. There are 20+ songs on each CD. If you have a preschooler who loves these shows, they will love the CD.

Disney also has a tween Sing into Spring package, which includes the Frozen soundtrack, Austin & Ally: Turn It Up soundtrack, DC Play it Loud, and Teen Beach Movie soundtrack. You can read Donna’s review on the tween package HERE.

The winners of the Disney Sing into Spring CDs were Susan Q and Kathie S.

Shazzy Fitness Review



I recently took the Shazzy Fitness 7-Day Health Challenge. Shazzy Fitness sent me their DVDs to try out and I did 1-2 workouts each day for a week.

Shazzy Fitness

Shazzy Fitness workouts are only 10 minutes long. They are hip-hop dance routines to Christian hip-hop music.

I really wanted to try these workouts because, even though I am not much of a dancer, I know that dancing is a great workout. I still don’t know all the moves, but the beat definitely keeps me moving and that’s the important part. I feel like I have so much energy after just one 10 minute workout! My 4 year old had fun joining me, too. She loves to dance.

I love the length of the workouts. I can fit in a 10 minute workout at almost any time. If I want a longer workout, I just add on more songs.

You can get both Shazzy Fitness DVDs for $29.99. You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.
