Amazon review by Samantha – Peril, The Legend of Sedrak

This book is so gripping. From the moment I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. The characters are instantly likeable and they are the sort of characters that you soon care about. Despite it being a fantasy book there is also an everyday ordinary aura to it. It is a great balance to it. Rake and Jakail are interesting and work well together. There is a spark to them, and they drive the story forward well. They seem alive and active, and have minds of their own.

The story flow well and it is easy to feel that you are a part of the book. It is easy to follow and stay with the story. There is an excitement to this book and it is brilliantly written. I found the descriptiveness to be good. it gave enough information to allow images to form, but enough room to allow each reader to visualise it their own way.

Overall this is a very enjoyable read. It is an ideal book to curl up with on a winter’s night. This book is a YA fantasy book, but if you are older (like me) don’t be put off picking it up.

Extract from Peril, The Legend of Sedrak

After another uncomfortable sleep, I was startled when the dirty sheet covering me was yanked away, revealing five snarling sailors.

“A stowaway!” an ugly big brute of a man bellowed.

They dragged me up the stairs, my legs kicking at them in protest. As they lugged me out into the sunlight I covered my eyes against its sharpness. With cruel laughter they threw me down. I skidded a fair distance before slamming against the side of the ship. Dirty sailors laughed and heckled as I jumped to my feet.

“What’s going on boys?” a well-dressed man with a strange accent drawled. He seemed out of place with the rest of the company. His white pants were tucked neatly into his leather boots, while his green shirt shimmered in the sun, ripples of frills running down the centre. A long dark braid hung down his back and a small black moustache sat on his upper lip as if drawn onto his face. When he saw me he jerked back, his eyes making a quick summary.

“We do not allow stowaways,” he scowled. “This is a merchant ship. Everything on here is worth something, every passenger paid for.” He paced while he spoke. “Freeloaders are bad for business.” To his crew he grumbled, “Throw it overboard.”

Fear crept up my body before closing around my throat. If only I had my bow, but it was with the rest of my provisions at the hide out. Then I remembered the dagger tucked into my pants. I produced it to jeering shouts. One of the sailors lunged at me, and I sliced his arm. As he jerked back in pain the rest of the crew formed a circle around us, egging us on.

Book Description from Goodreads

It’s the year 2438. Ten years ago, an ill-fated encounter on a mining world triggered a devastating war between the United Nations Planetary Defense and an alien organization known as the Drocain Royal Empire.

With no sign of a conclusion in sight, and with mankind’s very existence at stake, the men and women of the UNPD have been forced into desperation.

When Corporal Alana Carmen stumbles upon an encrypted communications device, she learns that there is more to the conflict than a simple war-for-worlds, and to uncover the truth, she must make allies of those she once considered enemies.

And now, the fate of the entire galaxy may rest on the shoulders of a single alien warrior . . .

After being publicly shamed at his own Coming of Age ceremony, Kenon Valinquint enrolls in the Drocain Royal Empire in the hope of one day redeeming himself.

Unbeknownst to the young Drahkori warrior, this decision has set in motion a staggering chain of events that could very well change the direction of the war, and the known history of the universe, forever.

 Book Description from Amazon

Our love was strong, unwavering, and unbreakable…or so we thought.

We’ve all heard the saying: you never forget your first love. For some, however, perhaps the better terminology is haunted—haunted with the memories, the connections, and the life-changing relationship.

So begins the tale of Emma Ranstein and Corbin Jones, two typical teenagers who travel the road of first love together, hearts sealed by a seemingly impenetrable bond.

When Corbin Jones is convicted of murder and faces years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, though, their love is put to the test. As Emma and Corbin await his release from prison decades later, both reflect on the power of a relationship neither has gotten over.

Their unique story speaks to a universal heartstring within all of us: how do we move on past a first love if we aren’t meant to do so? More importantly, it reminds us that there is hope if the heart leads the way.
