GHBT- Review- The Seed of Mankind by Sabrina James Riley


Seed of Mankind
By Sabrina James Riley
Published: November 25th, 2012

Blurb-

The Sumerians were a richly cultured civilization that thrived in Mesopotamia - the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in modern-day Iraq - for thousands of years.

Among their other remarkable feats, the Sumerians had a deep, organized religion that included an entire pantheon of gods and goddesses that built the foundation for aspects of modern day religion.

What if some of the most commonly known stories of our past were written by the wrong person?

Zenuah is a Sumerian man who, after learning to survive in the rough Outer Lands with the others exiled from the great city-state of Sirpag (Shuruppak), has to make a choice.

Either prove to his people that their gods aren't who they say they are, or let them die.

With the help of his childhood friend, a whole family of allies, a powerful woman who steals his heart, and an intelligent magpie, Zenuah must stand up for what is right, no matter what it may cost him.

GHBT- 'Aqua' by M.A. George Tour: Review



Aqua
By- M.A. George
Genre- YA Paranormal
Publication Date- April 16th, 2014

Meet Layla McKelland:  
Novelist (unpublished, but cut her some slack…seventeen is a bit early to despair),
Slightly neurotic introvert (Alright, let’s be honest…there’s no “slightly” about it),
International Woman of Mystery, and…
Okay, just scratch the bio.

The only real “mystery” in Layla’s life is why her father has never been on the scene.  Or why her mother drags Layla to a new coastal home every year.

Nothing about the latest hometown seems too newsworthy…until a routine day at the beach leaves Layla questioning whether she’s read one too many paranormal fantasy novels.  The plot thickens when a random guy claims to know things about her father—a bizarre claim he backs up with an equally impossible stunt.  And Layla soon finds herself on the wrong side of a mysterious attempted drowning…on her own kitchen floor.

When all is done, Layla will attest that fact is far stranger than fiction.  And nothing in real life is ever as transparent as it seems…Not even water.

Especially not water.
