Review - Enter the Realm of Flesh


"The blade seemed to cut the air itself apart. Before he could stop, he had created a strange, ineffable crack in the air. Then, an arm reached through ... and shortly afterwards, a body followed." 

Michael Phoenix is just your ordinary misfit teenager. He lives in a New England small town, his father ran off a year ago, and he falls asleep in school every now and then. However, one night, Michael accidentally opens a portal to another world, and an alien creature invades his home. All he thought he knew about the world is shattered when he is plunged into a world of darkness, a world that's strange and alien—a world that once was home to him. 

Michael embarks on a journey to the darkest corners of the Earth in search for purpose, home, and vengeance. He is ready to do all it takes, even if he must go to the source of his nightmares—even if he must enter the Realm of Flesh. Along the way, he gains supernatural abilities and learns to cope with loss. 

A horror journey that ramps up towards a climactic showdown in the end. There's gore, twists, and violent action galore in this dark coming-of-age story. By the end of the day, each of the three main characters will have shed their fair share of blood and learned their lesson—if they live to see the end of the day.

*I received this copy in exchange for an honest review* 

Michael is just like any normal teenager. Though his dad has been missing for around a year and when Lukas shows up with news that his father is actually dead - that's when things kick off. Lukas leaves Michael's father's sword. In the middle of the night Michael uses it to let a monster into our world. It kills his mother and Michael is sent to live with some very well off family members. Though he quickly decides he wants more. He knows about the monsters and wants to do something about about them. Lukas agrees to test him and see if he has what it takes. Everything really takes off from there, with old friends becoming allies and lots of freaking scary moments.

The writing style is very blunt, a hold no punches kind of thing and for this type of book it works perfectly. I found no mistakes and this story had me hiding under my blanket and leaving the lights on. Pick this up if you are a fan of horror... just make sure to leave the light on.

Favorite Quotes

1) "Don't worry," Lukas said and patted him on the back. We're basically just here to watch Old Tashal kick Immortal ass."

2) Why do you always wear those?" Michael asked. 
"To tell the truth," Lukas said, "I feel weird about the way my eyes look. They're ... too small."

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction.

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
