 Cj Mackey (January 09, 2013)  Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child became my favorite authors when I started reading Relic, a horror/thriller set at the American Museum of Natural History. Douglas Preston worked at the Museum as a writer and editor from 1978 to 1985 and the rich detail around the museum's inner workings drew me in. There began a series of novels that would become centered around a very unusual .. (Inspirational Fiction)

Broad Street Bully

 L. A. Sharp (January 10, 2009)  For me, Broad Street Bully is a story that had to be told, and it is, in fact, a story that we can all relate to - the struggle to stay on the right path in the face of enormous odds. The main character, Eric Stiles, is a recent college graduate groomed in one of the roughest neighborhoods there is, North Philly. And despite the many challenges he faced throughout his childhood, he made . (Inspirational Fiction)

The Princess

 Nola Redd (December 17, 2008)  In most fairy tales, when the Princess and Prince get married, the story ends “happily ever after". In Lori Wick's “The Princess, " however, the vows are only the beginning. Although this is the story of an arranged marriage, I found its underlying message quite relevant to most people today, and I think it may especially help those who are struggling or considering divorce. . (Inspirational Fiction)

Book Review - Nicolae

 Nola Redd (December 17, 2008)  The third book of the Left Behind series focuses on the rise of the man known by Christians to be the AntiChrist in the last days on Earth.

The End That I've Been Hoping For - A Review of End By John Ashton

 Jenny T Simpson (October 13, 2008)  I used to have one rule when it came to buying books. Don't buy self-published. There's usually something wrong with them that prevented agents and publishers from picking them up and I don't want to waste my hard earned cash on something that might not be worth it. Having said all of that, I have been finding myself increasingly disappointed with what's on offer at the big bookshops .. (Inspirational Fiction)

Midnight Sea Written by Colleen Coble

 Cy Hilterman (July 08, 2008)  I had read another book, Alaska Twilight, written by this author. I doubted that “Midnight Sea" could be as terrific a book as the former. I was wrong!

Leilani Tagama, known as Lani, is the featured girl in the .. (Inspirational Fiction)
