BY: Christopher Byron Contemporary Fantasy/Science Fiction ADRENALINE-PUMPING! "Push" recounts a chain of events that pitted an ordinary man against a government facility who tormented him in a world he wakes up to, after surviving a car crash. The main character in this cleverly entertaining story is Ryan Parker, who desperately fights in a battle for survival of his life, and those he loves. Ryan struggles to close the door of imprisonment permanently, and open a new door to a life he'd rather have at what-ever risks he may have to take. After so many times of being knocked against the wall, he decides to regain his strength, and push back! Does he save his own life, and those he loves? Does he get up, after he falls off his feet? Christopher Byron wrote a story that is consistently gripping that will thrill the reader with its unbelievable twists and turns. The story within the pages of "Push" is as dynamic as "The Insider" with Al Pacino. The story of Ryan Parker's heroic acts and triumph is presented by the author to have your adrenaline pumping, while craving for a sequel. With each twist in this novel, the mystery deepens and the question looms, will Ryan Parker win the battle for freedom? I recommend this book to all readers who enjoy thrillers, with a blend of drama, and fantasy. "Push" is as entertaining as "Devil's Advocate." Ryan Parker comes to life in Christopher Byron's outstanding plot, and is as incredible as Jeff Bridges is in "Arlington Road." Geraldine Ahearn, A.I.O.M.

BY: Donald James Parker Christian Fiction A Rousing Celebration Of Life! The main character in Donald James Parker's second book from a five book series about the Masterson family is a young man by the name of Bambi. He is a basketball player who steps up to college level, realizing as he grew older that energy, and talent was not enough to win the game. Bambi makes it to the National Tournament with support from Lisa, but then his life makes a complete turn, and he's forced to set priorities. He begins to realize with age that we make choices and decisions, and regardless of whether those choices were the right moves to make, we must live with them. I recommend this novel to teens, and adults who enjoy a fascinating story of life, with a blend of spiritual guidance. For many years, Bambi was on his own mission trying to learn how to make good decisions, realizing that we must have an open mind while searching for answers. While on his mission, he leads his family to walk on a different road, and their lives change forever.The author created an uplifting story that fills the pages with inspiration. "More Than Dust In The Wind" is as heartwarming as "For Love Of The Game" with Kevin Costner. This novel is full of soul and spirit with a remarkable story that the reader will never forget!

BY Malcolm R. Campbell The main character in "THE SUN SINGER" is Robert Adams, a teenager who has been tormented with his psychic dreams, especially after the death of his grandfather, and Julianne. Robert was against the idea of battling with his dreams. It was easier to ignore them, but his agony, and torment lead to a major decision. He had the dying need to meet the people who knew his grandfather, and he had to find out the truth about his close friend's death, Julianne. The choice he had to make in order to move on in life was a once in a lifetime opportunity, which happened while on a family vacation in the mountains, after the passing of his grandfather. The door of Pyrrha opens, inviting Robert to enter a village ruled by evil, mystical magic, and a journey of ultimate reality into the future. As Robert enters this mythical kingdom, does he grow up overnight? Is he prepared to battle with evil, and step into war as he confronts his grandfather's betrayer? Does he stop blaming himself for a tragedy he could not prevent? Will he survive Pyrrha's evil as he unlocks the mystery of Julianne's death? As Robert set out on his quest to complete a journey that his grandfather began, the pages to "The SUN SINGER" become an unforgettable magical adventure. I recommend this novel to teens, adults, and all fantasy lovers. Malcolm R. Campbell takes the reader on a magnificent, magic carpet ride to the past, the present, and the future. The story is enlightening, and tug's at the reader's heart as the adventure becomes a journey that strikes a chord in every reader, while looking back into the years of growing up. This novel is packed with riveting intensity, and is hauntingly powerful. As each page in "The Sun Singer" fits another piece to the mysterious puzzle that Robert is determined to put together, the story becomes more entertaining, and touching. The author created a brilliant, must-read fantasy that makes you crave for a sequel. "The Sun Singer" takes the reader into an enchanting adventure, with magical power, and healing tonic. After Robert enters a time-zone of another world, the mystery he unravels leaves unforgettable consequences as if viewing "The Sixth Sense" with Bruce Willis! Geraldine Ahearn, A.I.O.M.
