What would you do if could relive 7 hours of your life? Any 7 hours. What would you do? Would you seek to correct a mistake you had made? Would you spend time with a lost loved one? Would you get revenge on the person who you think ruined your life?

Those questions are at the heart of this unique collection of seven novellas from seven different authors. In each story, the enigmatic character who calls himself Thomas Constant appears to someone and offers them a unique proposition: they can go back and live any seven hours from their past, or they can live for seven more hours. Either way, after those seven hours, they will jump through time to the moment of their death. Read the rest of this entry »

Book Review – Corridor by Robin Parrish

Corridor

By Robin Parrish

Robin Parrish is one of my favorite authors. From book to book, you never know what to expect from him. Well, let me correct that. You know that you can expect a well-crafted story that will have you turning the pages faster than a speeding bullet. But he has written in a variety of genres – sci-fi, horror, superhero. With “Corridor,” Parrish ventures into YA territory for the first time, and the results speak for themselves. He makes the transition seamlessly, crafting a fast-paced story with characters that readers of all ages can relate to.

Troy, on the eve of his 17th birthday, awakens to find himself in a white room so bright that  he can’t even open his eyes. He has no memory of how he arrived in this blinding environment. His only companion is the girl’s voice he hears in his head telling him to run. With her help, he escapes from the white room, only to find himself in another room with another deadly challenge to overcome. This continues from room to room as Troy and his guardian angel continue to bond as she assists him in his journey through the titular Corridor. Read the rest of this entry »

Next week, to get caught up a little on my back-logged reviews, I will post one review every day Monday, March 5, through Saturday, March 10. That’s right: Six reviews in six days! The books I will review, in no particular order are:

Book Review – Vigilante by Robin Parrish

Vigilante

By Robin Parrish

Bethany House

In stores July 11, 2011

In a world where evil runs rampant and bad men are allowed to carry out their wicked deeds unchecked by any authority, where can people turn for hope? Sounds a lot like our world today, doesn’t it? But this is the future world Robin Parrish has presented to us in his new book, “Vigilante.”

Nolan Gray is sick of the corruption and crime that he sees taking over the country. After years of fighting in numerous wars and years spent as a POW, Gray has seen more than his share of the evil men can do and the suffering they can inflict on their victims. And he’s not going to let that continue to happen in his country. Read the rest of this entry »
