Robyn's Egg - A Futuristic Thriller

In the future we will become fertile, and unable to have children. You are controlled by the net which is extremely guarded. If you fight against it, or the all powerful Perko authority, you will find yourself in rehab or even killed.

Robyn is desperate to have a baby, you can feel the need in her that wants to procreate. Every bone in her body tells her it is what she is missing, and what she needs. She convinces Moyer to spend all of their money in the savings to find a baby.

Moyer foolishly makes a deal with Perko, that he ends up not being able to hold up to. This is just the beginning of a horrible trip for two people who just want a baby to love. After twists and turns that come up with nothing but dead ends, the couple finds themselves on the run to Beget. I won't spoil the whole book for you, but the roller coaster of thrills and conspiracy don't stop here.

Robyn and Moyer are such true and believable characters that you can feel the pain that they have to endure. They both share the spotlight of main characters, and neither of them over powers or controls the other. They are a team relying on one another equally as a partnership.

All through this book, I found myself contemplating such a society, and with Mark's great writing skills, it wasn't hard to imagine.

Robyn and Moyer go thorough such a life altering experience, that they come out on the other side completely different people.

Although the premise of the book might be similar to other dystopian books or movies, the characters is what really shows Mark Souza's unique creativity.

Unsinkable Mister Brown

Unsinkable Mister Brown is the third book in it's series, but it isn't necessarily important to the story line that you read the two books prior to this one. This story dives right into (no pun intended) the harrowing life of those working in the cruise ship industry. 


Brian David Bruns travels through many seas with his love, Bianca, at his side. They experience so many twists and turns in their relationship that you will be gripping your book just to find out what happens next. 

The author mixes so many perfect descriptive words for the characters and their surroundings, you can almost smell the ocean as you turn the pages.  

 I give this book


•Book Review• Breaking Jona by Jona Freeman

Breaking Jona

This book is not for everyone. Please be aware before reading the review. 
Jona Freeman goes through a variety of BDSM scenes that takes place in Europe. This book is written with a great eroticism that not a lot of BDSM books, that I have read, have shown.  There isn't a lot of backstory to the book, it pretty much just dives right into submission with a slave/master type role, even one that involves a police officer. If you are at all timid, this book will make you blush. It is 100% raw and graphic sexual activities. Don't expect it to have a lot of depth in the writing, it's a erotica book, nothing more.

Short Excerpt:

I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.

After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.
~~~
Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.

Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.

The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.

Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.

Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.

Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.
~~~
Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.
