I remember being obsessed with Yugioh growing up. I don't know much about James Bond, but I definitely know some things. Other than that, it seems like this was just ripped right from season 1 of Yugioh? I'm definitely confused, but hearing the character's voices in my head made me smile. Also, the formatting needs some help to make it less confusing. To the author, keep trying! You probably had a lot of fun doing this :)
The start of two scripts inspired by great people
Review: The Tapestry by Audrey N Lewis
While well written, at times it was repetitive and too long-winded. I loved the imagery and the creativity, but it got tiring to read at times. The story is unique and I really enjoyed the little interjections from Maia's point of view. It gave it a whimsical feel to me. I actually loved that aspect.
The creatures, the characters, the villains... they're well-rounded and interesting in themselves. I enjoyed watching the story shift and change. I just really wish it wasn't so long-winded.
That being said, I do look forward to more books by this author in the future. With a mind as creative as hers, I would love to see where her books could take me.
Discover a beautiful and deeply haunting tapestry of love, pain, magic, and healing.
In a single moment, Maia’s life would never be the same. Because when her miraculous virgin birth gifts her a blind, albino hermaphrodite, she never could have foreseen the fate that lay in store for them both. Adopted by a pack of coyotes and seeking refuge deep in the woods, a sheltered cottage and unseen helpers give Maia and her baby Justice a new life together.
But the world of the early twentieth century isn’t kind to unwed mothers or children like Justice… and when they’re forced to leave their hidden cottage, Maia finds herself struggling to survive in a man’s world. Her only solace lies in Justice’s incredible gift – an otherworldly ability to weave colorful tapestries that can predict the future.
But Justice’s destiny will call them, and together they will share her gift, bringing freedom to those whose stories need to be told. And as Justice opens hearts and minds through her magical loom, she discovers the life-changing impact that she was fated to share with the world.
Artfully weaving together a powerful and deeply moving story that touches on profound themes of love, transformation, motherhood and healing, The Tapestry is a magical contemporary fiction novel where the emotions pour out of each page, offering readers of all backgrounds a heartfelt experience that will stick in your mind long after you finish reading.

The introduction to this world is perfect and captivating. There are so many questions to ask, but none that hinder the reading experience. It rather enhances it.
The art is really pretty and well done, and I love all the colors. The pacing is perfect and exciting. I really enjoyed being introduced to the characters. Ereya feels like a strong character; even though she’s a princess, she’s willing to put herself in danger to save others, and she doesn’t let her past trauma stop her.
Toward the end, the weapon used is a lot like the quinque Mado uses in Tokyo Ghoul. That was a super cool and exciting weapon to see, and my bias and love for Tokyo ghoul helped me really enjoy the last bit of the book.
I look forward to the next.
One Planet. 7 Houses. The 200 Year War. A ban on expanding and colonizing other planets based on religion and prophecy. The creation of chimeras, lab-made animal-human hybrids and their struggle for emacipation. And a looming cosmic doom. All that has to be solved by the soldier and princess Ereya of House Dorrean. Will she succeed or will a fate worse than death await her?
Roeyan Saga Volume 1 contains chapters 1-5 and the extra Noble Houses.
I've found that I really enjoy stories like these, true accounts of people's history. Often, history is told from a cold point of view, but stories like these make it personal. History is always something to learn from, not repeat.
I love this story. The situations Gus found himself in, and not even by his own hand, he was lucky, quick, and smart to find a way out. Knowing the people in this story are real leaves more of an impact than any other fictional story.
Being born in 1920’s Depression-era Mississippi is a hard life. It can be even harder if you are Black. Gus, born of two worlds. With a black mother and a white father, the law of the times dictated, access to one and not the other.
Though he has a loving family, ongoing tensions between him and his mother push Gus to make a critical decision. At twelve years old unbeknownst to his family, Gus leaves home early one morning long before the rooster crows. But he is not prepared for the dangers and life-threatening encounters that unfold. Being alone and Black in 1930’s Jim Crow Mississippi could often feel like being the hunted. Gus’s struggle to survive spark an awakening of his latent extrasensory gifts. Sleeping abilities that help to guide him; but all life lessons come at a cost. Will the lessons learned be enough to save him?
This quick book of poems has a really nice message to it. With each word, you can feel Rehman's heart and emotions as they recount moments in their lives and share them with the reader, hoping to maybe help them in return, to let them know they aren't alone.
3 stars :)

Review: A Colossal Injustice: A Griffin Knight Corporate Murder Mystery (The Griffin Knight Series Book 2) by Miguel Angel Hernandez Jr.
I will say I enjoyed this book so much. Detectives with hackers and bio-engineering (in a way)? That’s way cool, and I appreciated every second of it. This book is definitely a large leap in the right direction for this series, and I’m so excited to see what will come next. 5 stars.
What if a deadly night in Seattle is just the beginning?
I haven’t even been in the city for 48 hours, and it’s already obvious that the information in front of me doesn’t add up.
As a homicide detective, I’ve seen it all, but this murder is different.
To kill someone in this manner is often a crime of passion or a deeply personal attack, and yet the evidence suggests otherwise.
Why was he targeted? How is it connected to Seattle’s biggest megacorp? Was it someone he already knew? What if this is the start of something so much bigger?
The only thing I do know is that I need to find out who did this fast in case others are also at risk!

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber
Honestly? I liked this one more than the first. I read the first one a few years back and I loved the way it was written, but this one had MORE. It was BETTER in a way I can’t describe. It’s not one of my FAVORITES, but I really, really enjoyed it.
I think Stephanie Garber has one of my favorite ways of writing. It’s art come to life in a way I can appreciate. It’s like a breath of fresh air, and my gosh, I needed some of that.
A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.
After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.
The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more―and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets . . . including her sister’s. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about―maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval...the games have only just begun.

What is NANOWRIMO?
Every November, people set out to write a whole novel (50k words) in one month.
I'm joining this year!
Instead of writing a new book, I'll be finishing one I've already started. Entering with 15k (of projected 75k) words written, I'm entering with When Dead Men Bleed 2 (title announced soon). Become my buddy on Nanowrimo.org (username: renesmeewolfe) and watch my progress here.
I've always had trouble with summaries. When Dead Men Bleed was a weird one I could never figure out...
“Fate has a way of changing yer plans, mate.”
I never asked fate to change me into a Bleeder. Zombism is all I knew, but now I’ll be hunted until they can find a way to kill me. If I hadn’t had gone down to that hum-fight, if I didn’t jump in the ring to satisfy my need for unprocessed human flesh, I'd still be accepted in society. I wouldn’t have to hide from the werewolves who can smell life on me, from the vampires who, with one drop of blood, know everything about me. Now here I am, with a gaggle of humans and human-sympathizers, trying to hide my new identity, all while trying my hardest to avoid learning about the girl who turned me.
But it’s near impossible when she’s the only one I trust.
When Dead Men Bleed is available for FREE on Kindle Unlimited. It also is available as a paperback and hardcover, AND has two special editions: the Whiteout and Limited Edition Covers/formatting. Sound interesting? Visit the links below.

The heat is turned up quickly between the main characters Rayna and Jax. It focuses around their story and how they come to fall for one another following the instant attraction. I did enjoy the banter between characters, although I do wish there was more sprinkled throughout the book.
This book has a lot of opportunities to create a strong series, and I know this first book will create a strong following for the books to come. The author definitely knows what they're talking about when it came to all the technical talk around the two main character's businesses and what they do for a living, and I really enjoyed hearing about that.
If you enjoy a wholesome and mildly spicy book, make sure you check this one out. It's a light and quick read, and if romance is what you're looking for, you'll definitely fall in love with Ray and Jax, and, just like the main characters themselves, you won't be able to get enough of them.
They knew the merger wasn’t going to be easy. But Rayna and Jax never expected it to start with sparks flying.
Rayna is an attractive fiery entrepreneur and successful litigator who has grown her business incredibly. Now she has the sort of offer on the table that dreams are made of—more money, success, and power than she could ever imagine. And all she must do is form a partnership with a large law firm.
Jax’s ambitions have driven him to put everything into his firm, and this merger is supposed to take his firm to the next level. He is great looking, laidback, and a top corporate shark. He knows what he wants and believes he knows how to get it.
But when the pair meet for the first time, they instantly dislike each other, and a frustrating power struggle commences. But is it fueled by a merger of the firms? Or are shamefully attracted they are to each other…
Making the Deal is the super fast pace first book in the love at first sight romance series. If you like your stories filled with unexpected twists and turns and red-hot heart-pounding tension, this book was made for you.
