I only have a photo for the cover, I’m not a writer: This is my review:

Imagine a book when you look at a picture and your imagination runs wild with stories about what you see. That’s this series! Awesome photography, poems and stories written by several superior authors! I’ve read every book in this series, each one had new authors to get to know. There’s weird stories that make your mind think. Sci-fi that’ll show a glimpse into the authors mind, down right chilling stories, don’t forget the amazing poetry by two amazing poets, the photography that inspired these stories. You really should try one of these books, their worth the money and totally worth your time. This is one of my favorite books in this series. I think it makes a good Halloween read.

I can Hear them: Into The Light By Darcia Helle

I can hear them: Into The Light by Darcia Helle
I really enjoyed this story! We have humor, romance and ghosts. The mystery is a murder, Max Paddington’s murder. Max was killed outside of Chili’s on the same day his wife Rachel asks for a divorce, coincidence? Max doesn’t think so. He hovers over his body and realizes no one can see him, he’s screaming to ask his wife about the murder. He feels a sizzle up his spine and sees his grandfather with his hand held out asking him to go into the light, Max explains why he can’t go yet, another sizzle and he’s in Joe Cavelli’s car, Joe is a sleuth, but Max doesn’t know that. When Joe hears Max they flip out. Max can’t figure out why Joe can hear him, but Joe’s not surprised. Can Joe help this clumsy ghost figure things out so he can go into the light? Read this book to find out, it’s hilarious. There is a message about life, don’t miss it.

Matters of the heart: Killing Instinct (a Michael Sykora novel third one) by Darcia Helle

Unfortunately I’ve come to the end of this awesome series, this is the third and last time I’ll be with Michael, Nicki and Sean, other characters I’ll miss Isaac and his mom Ruby. What a way to end a series! I don’t know if you read any of this series, it highly detailed, from it’s torture scenes to it’s investigating work, this author can write! The research is evident in every way, from torture, to killing, to breaking and entering, everything is so detailed. We have two men and one woman with the same mindset, get rid of rapist, child abusers. We have more of Sean in this one, I love that, he’s a likable hired hit man, yea I said hit man and likable ( read the series, you’ll find out). He’s hired to kill Maria, he’s done what he’s never done, got involved with a hit. Maria is beautiful, Sean thinks something is way off about this job. He decides to investigate and asks Michael for help, for Sean to ask for help was big. What they find is very disturbing, a Internet site that you can get any fantasy you want, killing, sexual, any fetish your into. It’s run by someone called “The SandMan” He wants Maria dead! Sean, Michael and Nicki go deep and things get real. I cringed, got sad, happy, actually had tears from reading this series. I applaud the author for “HER” imagination and plain awesomeness in knowing what the reader wants. I’ve read other books by this author, I totally recommend you try her.

Kids: Beyond Salvation ( A Michael Sykora novel) by Darcia Helle

This is the second novel in this awesome series. Michael and Nicki ( you remember Nicki, the prostitute Micheal was with after the killing of his fiancĂ©). Michael helped Nicki in No Justice, now she’s got a job and apartment, has her head on straight. Michael and her are great friends, Nicki wants more, Michael keeps putting her off, (will Nicki win). Michael has problems with his dad, he has cancer and Michael wants to find his sister before he dies. He enlists his best friend Isaac ( police officer) to help find her. He has all that going on and his daytime job as a software designer, at night he plays justice for those who need him. He mostly goes after child molesters and rapist who think their above the law. Two boys who live on the streets that helped Nicki out when she needed it needs her help finding a girl that lived with them, they are sure she’s in trouble. Michael usually doesn’t do runaways but, these boys helped Nicki, so he said he’d meet them. They decided to try to help, when things get deep Michael asks his friend and hit man Sean to help. What they dig into is a world where danger lies in the hands of people who claim to be in Gods hands. You must read this series!!!

TRIPTYCHS ( minds eyes series book three)
I love this series! Every time I open a new book from this series I’m thrilled because I know I’m about to read from new authors and ones I already love. I see some beautiful photography and read meaningful poetry. The stories are different from one another, different styles, dark, romance, mystical and the poems are mind blowing. There are 13 authors, photographers in this book, each story meticulously written for your reading pleasure, “pleasure “you will get from this book. There are short stories, some longer ones, I loved each one, I loved everything about this book. It’s hard to have a favorite when there’s such great authors, you’ll have to read it to see what I mean. I know I found new authors in this series, you will to. Whoever came up with this concept is genius! So much talent in this series. They keep it fresh by adding new authors to every book.
