Intriguing, intelligent, and full of action, The Urban Boys: Discovery of the Five Senses offers a memorable, emotion-packed, thrilling ride for young and mature readers alike!

 

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE URBAN BOYS: DISCOVERY OF THE FIVE SENSES:

Five friends do something considered taboo by the townsfolk and enter the mysterious, forest-like preserve. But something otherworldly awaits them among the trees. Yet just as the five can then sense each other, so, too, can three others sense them, and one of the trio is a killer. Smith’s book blends action and mystery with elements of the paranormal. Additionally, the novel overflows with positive thematic pointers relating to the importance of family, honesty, etc. The presence of these moments of encouragement make her story worth reading.
4-stars – John E. Roper, The U.S. Review of Books

“Author K.N. Smith uses her mastery of the written word to weave an entrancing, yet powerful tale of adventure that keeps you turning pages in an unquenchable desire to find out what happens next. The author’s matchless prose details cinematic fight sequences and fully developed characterizations especially in a final, stupendous scene that will take your breath away and leave you limp with spent emotions. Five stars for this imaginative and inspiring story, sure to be as appealing to general audiences as it will be to the YA crowd!”
5-stars – Don Sloane, Publishers Daily Reviews

“An energetic YA adventure debut with stellar action sequences. Smith’s writing is intelligent and often lyrical. Her exuberant prose never fails to dazzle.”- Kirkus Media

“Read the Prologue and fasten your seat-belts! – The URBAN BOYS: Discovery of the Five Senses is the kind of thrill ride you’d expect from a seasoned action and adventure novelist, not in a first novel by a writer just entering this genre. The URBAN BOYS really grabs you. There’s the beauty of the scenes described, the eerie, mysterious source of the boys’ new power, and the suspense you will feel in every engagement that rivets you to every page. The URBAN BOYS creates a whole new world of emotions, suspense, danger and drama. It’s a great read!” 5-stars – Melvin Tag

Goodreads Review of Kill Daddy by Gerald Freeman

One man’s journey of self-discovery and struggle to overcome the traumatic effects of childhood abuse and trauma. A must read!

eBook Review Gal

Kill DaddyKill Daddy by Gerald Freeman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gerald Freeman has been running from an abusive childhood for most of his adult life. He’s finally at a point where he’s realized that self-medicating with assorted drugs and pushing away well-meaning friends has gotten him nowhere. It’s time for a change. He toys with the idea of killing his father in an attempt to quell his inner demons, but fortunately, he opts for something more meaningful, legal and only slightly less dangerous: traveling throughout Africa on a journey of self-discovery.

Gerald Freeman is a master storyteller. I found myself immediately hooked and completely immersed in a story that could only be told by someone who lived through it. I was struck by how much I didn’t know about Africa. Mr. Freeman has successfully painted a vivid picture of life in some amazing and exotic, yet overwhelmingly poverty-stricken, places…

Author Bio:Rodney St Clair Ballenden Author Photo

He married Colleen and returned to South Africa to settle on her family farm in the Magoebaskloof district. There he learnt organisation skills and leadership, but the call of the wild drew him away from the life of a comfortable farmer to roam the eastern boundaries of the Kruger National Park. He chose a hermit existence, placing himself in extreme situations exposed to danger and the vagaries of storm and wind.This experience revealed his inner strengths, and from his observations on the relationship between man and the wilderness, he began to write.

Peter in Flight by Paul Michael Peters Goodreads Book Review

eBook Review Gal

Peter in FlightPeter in Flight by Paul Michael Peters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Peter is a software marketer who truly lives his life out of a suitcase. He’s good at what he does – so much so that he inadvertently makes a couple of “enemies” along the way. Peter is personable, caring and a great listener. His love for his best friend and boss, Tatiana, remains the constant thread throughout the story. Readers are treated to a few heartwarming stories through his encounters with the various travelers and salespeople he comes in contact with while on the road.

Before I began reading Peter in Flight I wondered how Paul Michael Peters could turn software marketing into an enjoyable, entertaining read. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with this gem of a book.

Unbelievably, this is a first work for Paul Michael Peters and he does an excellent job of combining several…
