The Gold Feather – Dani Pasquini

I won this book through an IG competition but WOW!!

There will be some spoilers, but not enough to not make you check out the book. Just wanted to give that warning up front.

So, a few months ago I won an IG book giveaway that included this book, a gold necklace (that will have a totally different meaning now), and a Starbucks gift card. The funny thing was all I was really concerned with was the book. 

Check out her website for more information and updates https://www.danipasquini.com

I read the background on the book and the information that was put up and I was hooked. I had to know how this worked. See in the military they were using orphans and babies that weren’t “wanted” and making them into experiments. They would raise them up and then sent them out to become adults with their memories erased and replaced to let them lead normal lives. 

Until they were ready for them. When they were ready for them, everything they loved died. They were considered dead and they were put in a room given a serum and basically “woken” up. 

Imagine being in your thirties and finding out your whole life was a lie, and the fact that your family could’ve died because of who you were. That was in Lily’s mind. As her memories came flooding back to her and her abilities we struggle with her as she wants to leave and run, but is tightly connected to her Dual Jonas. There powers together are unlike anything I have ever heard and I am a fan. 

I can only imagine the fiery glow that comes from Lily as she is protecting her loved ones and the ones she was sent to protect, but there is so much holding her back. See the thing is the military didn’t know how strong the Duals were going to be, and for that matter neither did they. 

To them they were a weapon, so how do you get away from becoming what they tried to make you while making sense of it all? Thats what Dani did here. She made you think of all that as as the book was coming to the end I was already waiting for book two.

Its on Amazon, I will leave the link below. To me now, the necklace is a sign of power and a deeper understanding of me. Its my connection to remember whats true. Your book reminds me that its never too late to be great, when its something you were built for.

The Scribbled Victims – Robert Tomoguchi

Being in the writers and authors network on Instagram you run into a lot of awesome authors who are trying to get their books read and reviewed. I offered to read The Scribbled Victims, because number one its description sounded good, and boy was I write.

The Scribbled Victims is not your normal vampire story, its so much deeper than that. Besides the main character (Orly) is a orphan with cancer who scribbles peoples secrets. The secrets she can see is the secret lives people live as pedophiles, murders, abusers, and hateful people. Orly is not going to make it, no one wants to tell her that, but because of her gift she knows the truth. With no family to keep her company or be by her side she finds herself in the cafeteria late at night scribbling people she encounters. Thats when Yelena comes in, she scribbles Yelena and is frightened. Orly believes that Yelena wants to kill her, but Yelena is a vampire with a conscience.

Yes, you read correctly, a vampire with a conscience. She only wants to kill those who are horrible people and the world would be better without. Thats what makes Orly so special, because Orly can see the bad in others. She wants to adopt her, but the adoption agency doesn’t want to spend the time on a child who will die soon anyways. Sad to know that usually happens.

Yelena becomes a frequently visitor of Orly, and from there an unbreakable bond begins. Its a strange bond that has its ups, downs, twists and turns. There are different parts where you are sitting on the edge of your seat because you are unsure whats about to happen next.

I hate books that are predictable (they are a disappointment), but this book was far from it. It was like, when you thought the book was over and it was a happily ever after, something else came up. Yet to only added to the excitement of the story, it made for an amazing read. I am so hooked on this story and cannot wait until his sequel Scribbling, The Eternal comes out.

How does it end? Not like how you expect, but once you pick this book up, you will not be able to put it down. My kindle and I had a love hate relationship because it wouldn’t stay charged like I needed it too. Now that I am finished, I have so many questions. To me that is a making of a good book, I should want to know more and want to read more. Which will make every reader of this book do a countdown until the sequel.
