REVIEW: Four years ago, Ashton Keller was accused of murder. Four years ago, all Ashton wanted to be worried about was surviving his first year of high school… and girls. More specifically, his best friend Willow Lamont. Now four years later, Ashton is released from juvenile detention with revenge on the mind little realizing how his conviction altered and damaged Willow and her family.

Prepared for indifference towards everyone he once knew, nearly as soon as Ashton sets foot back in Gilt Hollow, everything changes. Continue reading “Gilt Hollow by Lorie Langdon – Atmospheric Young Adult Whodunit”

REVIEW: The Scottish adventures of best friends Vee and Mackenna draw to a close in Forever Doon, the final novel of the series. As the story opens, things pick up immediately where Shades of Doon (book three) left off. Vee is in Doon while Mackenna is stuck in contemporary Scotland without means of returning to the place she now thinks of as home. Vee believes her beloved Jamie is dead and gone leaving Doon’s queen solely responsible for the safety of their people. With the Brig o’ Doon destroyed (a feat orchestrated to protect their people), Mackenna and Duncan strive to keep those who managed to cross the bridge safe. But with an evil soul on the throne of Doon, their greatest battle is yet to come. Continue reading “Forever Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon – The Final Journey to Doon”

Review: There is something about a contemporary that travels back in time. Maybe its allure first began with the popular Gene Kelly musical Brigadoon (which this YA series is loosely based on) or maybe it’s just the idea that we have the ability to revisit these eras long gone through stories and it’s because of these visual descriptors that many of us have come to one conclusion: we were born to the wrong era. This co-authored series is the sequel to last summer’s inventive novel Doon and it continues the adventures of McKenna Reid and her best friend, Veronica. Living in Chicago pursuing her dream of a career on stage, it’s been nearly a year since McKenna left behind her true love, a native Doonian (what, so that’s not a word… work with me) – not to mention real-life royalty, Duncan, though for Doon, it’s merely been three months and now Doon requires McKenna’s return – or more importantly Veronica needs her best friend. Doon is coming under attack by forces that are ruled by evil witches and would have Doon’s beauty turned into a zombie wasteland. With her new Calling as the Queen of Doon, Veronica is only able to fight the battle so far by herself – her best chance at winning is with McKenna by her side, only McKenna left Doon with broken hearts in her rearview and it’s impossible not to let personal infractions complicating things… Continue reading “Destined for Doon by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon”
