A review for Born Into Chaos

Amazon Link- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GCZVWQ1/

REVIEW – The author’s vivid description and visceral storytelling relate a tale which takes place across the centuries through a blend of genres: paranormal, romance, fantasy, and myth. The reader feels Adamas’ anguish wrought by ostracization and isolation, unaccepted by either world he treads, and in desperate need of being loved.
Most endearing to me—the contents of chapter 20 and beyond, for its focus on a destined, though seemingly unlikely relationship between Adamas and Phoebe. The roller coaster ride beset with conflicts and overwhelming strife had me reading with apprehension over the story’s outcome. $2.93 or $0.00 KU

Women in Horror Month- I reviewed “Death Comes Calling: A Collection of Dark Tales” by F.B. Hogan

I think these four supernatural stories were really unnerving and unsettling. They author paid a lot of attention to every scene and detail as if she wanted to make sure her readers gained the maximum creepiness. Some parts made my imagination work overtime, causing me want to check my surroundings in case of one those creatures were close by, while other parts were just pure visceral. These parts made me want to take a break but I couldn’t, because the story was too captivating. I was completely immersed by each tale!

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM Lily Lamb

An inspiring tale of love triumphing over evil. It has all the
hallmarks of a qualitative story including, mystery, reader engagement and a surprise
ending. It has strong threads of morality, wherein Greek mythology is
delicately intertwined with fantasy themes to demonstrate how mistreatment of a
person can have terrible consequences. The story highlights human fallibility
and yet at the same time, it oozes with compassion, creating empathy for those
who are perceived as bad or from the wrong side of the tracks, and showing that
fairness and love can rise above all that chaos.

About Joanne Van Leerdam

AMAZON LINK- https://www.amazon.com/Joanne-Van-Leerdam/e/B01L69KNBY/

Joanne is a poet, blogger, writer, thinker, puzzler, teacher, traveller, photographer and generally nice person.
She drinks far too much coffee, but is highly dependent on the caffeine for successful navigation of that part of each day that occurs before lunchtime, so she’s not giving it up anytime soon.
Despite having lived all her life in Australia, she has, thus, far, avoided being killed or maimed by any of the deadly wildlife, which is probably a good thing. Furthermore, she does not surf, live at the beach, or have a pet kangaroo.
Other than Australia, Canada is her favourite place in the world. She’s proud to have been adopted as an honorary Canadian.
In addition to writing powerful, thought-provoking poetry, short-but-incredibly meaningful stories, and some creepy, macabre horror, she teaches senior high school English, History and Drama/Production. She is an active member and performer in her local theatre company.
Joanne’s poetry is contemporary, moody, sometimes sensual and always easy to read – and it will get you in the feelings. One reviewer put her on the “shelf of legends” with Ginsberg and Whitman, calling Nova “A beautiful ride through a beautiful mind”.
It’s high praise – why not read her work today and see if you agree?
