Book Review: BRAND NEW DARK by Beau Johnson

  BRAND NEW DARK by Beau Johnson   I am new to the Bishop Rider universe and the dark, sleezy, crime infested world that he haunts. Like a spectral shadow creeping through the night Rider deals out heaping doses of vigilante justice upon the bottom of the barrel scum and villainy of the world. BRAND NEW DARK by Beau Johnson gives us the low down on Rider’s dirty deeds, from when it all started to near the end and everything in between. The stories in this collection are like a collage of snapshots depicting the life of Rider scattered across...

Book Review: HEAVY METAL by Andrew Bourelle

  HEAVY METAL by Andrew Bourelle   "Andrew Bourelle’s novel, Heavy Metal, gives us a glimpse into the life of Danny, a teenager who seeks peace and stability after the suicide of his mother." This book didn't really have a description or teaser on the back cover so I went into it blind--I really loved the cover, actually, but honestly, I had no clue what this was going to be about.Turns out, this book is not horror but it is a book you should be afraid of if you're scared of your heart being wrecked. If you don't want your...

Book Review: RAZORBLADE TEARS by S. A. Cosby

  RAZORBLADE TEARS by S. A. Cosby    “Folks like to talk about revenge like it’s a righteous thing but it’s just hate in a nicer suit.” -S.A. Cosby Nearly one year to the day that I finished BLACKTOP WASTELAND, one of my favorite novels of 2020, I turned the final page of S.A. Cosby’s magnificent follow up, RAZORBLADE TEARS, and even though it’s only July I can confidently declare that the results are the same. This will no doubt be one of my favorite reads of the year. The setup for this crime novel is familiar, but with a...
