paranormal bigfootREVIEWED BY J.M. NORTHUP

Entertaining Quick Read
I’m completely taken by Sasquatch/Bigfoot – have been for a long as I can recall. I’m not an outdoorsy gal, though I’ve done my share of camping and hiking, so you won’t find me searching anything in the woods. Still, I’m constantly after other resources of data, such as this book.
A proud great-granddaughter of a Cherokee medicine woman, Native American lore and wisdom is important to me. It’s blended into my Christian faith as naturally as being an author is part of my storytelling heritage. That being said, I’ve gravitated to the tales of Sasquatch/Bigfoot, and even written my own books about them. I think it’s safe to say that, even though I’m not certain what exactly they are, I believe they exist.
Of the accounts in this book, I was most moved by Sam’s. His experience is most in-line with what I’ve found with the Salish beliefs and what I believe. The guy stalked by a group (Rake, I think) seems feasible, too, because he understood they “could have” overpowered him “if they chose.” However, none were violent. I do have to say, Rake’s “missing time” does play into the hypothesis that Sasquatch/Bigfoot is some sort of alien. Interesting…
Whatever you believe, these are entertaining stories of personal experiences. It is a quick read, filled with mystery, action, and wonder. It doesn’t answer any questions, but it never promised to, either. I recommend this to readers who love myth and lore, aliens, and unsolved mysteries.

Action Adventure at it’s Best
I ran across this title on a blog post. The cover was eye-catching and the blurb sounded exciting, so I decided to give the book a try. Boy, I’m glad I did.
The story starts off in action-packed drama, which is never really explained in book one about the significance of the artifact the soldier is trying to recover. I’m assuming he’s Elliot’s great-great grandfather? Hopefully, that detail will be revealed in book two.
As for the rest o the story, it’s about two main characters, Elliot and Arthur, as opposite as you can get in lifestyles. They are both facing the same enemy, though, they don’t’ know that until the end. I loved both of their characters, and I can’t wait to see how they will develop together, now that they’ve joined forces.
The theme of the story it’s your typical bad people trying to make super villains, and a superhero that ain’t so super. l really enjoyed that Arthur’s powers kept mutating until he ends up what he becomes. I felt he handled the end result maybe a bit too impassive. I think I’d have been freaked out.
The writing is good and kept me turning the pages. I did find a few typos, and there was one point I felt that it was a little weak. But, I was thoroughly entertained and can’t wait to see what happens next. Also, the blurb eludes to an alien invasion but there is nothing in the first book that indicates it. Hmmm. Interesting.
If you love sci-fi with superhero’s and villain’s, I highly recommend this book. I give it 5 stars and on to book two.

Loved it!
Where did I find it: this is the third book of a trilogy, and originally found via the author’s blog.
What I liked: All of it! The first two stories are great, but this one is my favourite. Jeremy is the son of Eliza from the first book. At the end they are reunited and it brought tears to my eyes. I loved how all the characters interacted with each other with the onus once more kindness. There were plenty of bad, sad, and spiteful, things but the story always returned to sweetness and love with a happy ending.
What I didn’t like: is how death can be cruel and bring such great sadness. We all have to face it at sometime, but losing someone before their time is hard on everyone. I’m also a believer that out of something bad, comes good and this story was no exception.
Overall: it was a cracking good read. Full of strong emotion, intimacy and romance. I loved to see the creation of families and how children bring joy. The whole series has been lovely and enjoyable and all with happy endings, which I love. Readers who like the aforementioned will adore this series too.
