Book Review: ‘The Priest (The Ginecean Chronicles #1)’ by Monica La Porta

The Priest by Monica La Porta My rating: 5 of 5 stars With so many stories that attempt to make true love seem complicated, it’s refreshing to read something that proves that it is one of the most simple things a human will ever experience – and almost certainly the most powerful. In ‘The Priest (The Ginecean Chronicles #1)’, Monica La Porta does a fantastic job of creating a society that seems to be the opposite of reality and then proving that it’s a lot more like the world we live in than we’d like to admit. The characters are vivid and believable. They will take you to the extremes of love and hate, but will never tell you until you arrive… and maybe not for a little while after.

Read Me Dead by Emerald Barnes My rating: 5 of 5 stars ‘Read Me Dead‘ by the young author, Emerald Barnes, is a book that’s completely out of my normal genre set… and I enjoyed the heck out of it! In ‘Read Me Dead‘, Emerald Barnes proves her ability in weaving the triumphs and heartache of teenage romance into a story about a terrifying fight with life, death and chipped fingernail polish. The characters and interactions are vivid and the plot twists are not in short supply. A fun read for everyone – male or female, young adult or old fart (like me). I’m looking forward to more from Emerald Barnes! View all my reviews Have you read this book? Let me know and tell us what you think in the comments section below!

Trinity by Clare Davidson My rating: 5 of 5 stars What a great story! A vivid and tactile read. Trinity grabs you and won’t let go! Outstanding scenery and ambiance painted expertly to hold a very appealing set of characters traversing a life changing set of events. Though life did not allow me the luxury this time through, Trinity is a book that most readers will find themselves blazing through all of it’s 269 pages (paperback) in one sitting. Clare proves her talent for plucking the reader from this world and thrusting them into the reality she has embedded in the pages. I’m thrilled to know that we can expect more from this story and from Clare Davidson. You can bet I’ll be setting aside time for future Clare Davidson releases!
