Nineteen-year-old Myla Lewis has transformed into Great Scala, the only being with the power to move souls out of Purgatory and into Heaven or Hell. Trouble is, a magical object called Lucifer’s Orb is limiting Myla’s abilities. If she tries to move a soul, the Orb’s forcing her to send that spirit straight to Hell.

So, what’s a girl to do? Send innocents to the fiery down-under?
No way. Myla’s gone on a supernatural strike. No souls go anywhere until the Orb’s history. It’s the right thing to do, but Purgatory’s Soul Storage buildings are turning into time bombs. No spirits are moving out, while millions keep coming in. Myla’s determined to find the Orb and send the innocent to Heaven, but she’s running out of time. Soon, the containment fields will burst, releasing a mob of homicidal ghosts.

With Soul Storage ready to explode, Myla’s got enough on her plate without her old enemy, Lady Adair, causing problems. Adair is launching an ingenious campaign to take away everything that Myla holds dear, including Myla’s Angelbound love, Prince Lincoln.

Between their clever ideas and toe-curling kisses, Myla and Lincoln are fighting back. But will they beat the clock or lose everything to Adair’s devious schemes?

Blog Tour Spotlight - The Discovery by Louis Kraft & Robert S. Goodman MD



The Discovery
Author: Louis Kraft & Robert S. Goodman MD
Publisher: Createspace
Pages: 311
Genre: Legal Thriller

Book Description:
In THE DISCOVERY by Robert S. Goodman and Louis Kraft, a young obstetrician/gynecologist delivers a premature baby after attending a dinner party. The child survives the delivery, but complications lead to a malpractice lawsuit two decades later.

In 1952, a pregnant seventeen-year-old gives birth in a Los Angeles hospital. Two nurses attend to the young woman while they wait for the doctor on call to arrive for the delivery. Dr. Harry Chapman arrives at the hospital clearheaded but with alcohol on his breath. The premature baby is born blue and placed in an incubator. The nurses turn the oxygen to the level recommended to pediatricians for preemies the year before to prevent blindness. When the baby’s color doesn’t change, Harry instructs the nurses to turn the oxygen up to maximum. They protest, but Harry insists that the nurses comply to save the baby from brain damage or death.

In 1972, Greg Weston, a twenty-year-old paralegal meets a young woman who works with a renowned pediatrician. When she questions the attractive young man about his blindness, Greg reveals that his adoptive parents told him he was born blind. After agreeing to see the doctor Gail works for, Greg becomes aware that his blindness may have occurred as a result of physician error. Greg requests his medical records from the hospital and the adoption agency, and he finds that the hospital records tell a different story about what took place after his birth. In both records, Dr. Harry Chapman is indicated as the doctor who delivered him. Greg shares his findings with a partner in his law firm, and they build a case against Dr. Chapman based on fraudulent changes in the hospital records, which allows the statute of limitations to be thrown out.

After Harry receives word that he is being sued, his attorney advises him that the malpractice insurance he carried in 1952 will not cover even a fraction of the multimillion-dollar lawsuit. The stress and uncertainty of the case, along with the accusation of fraud, breaks Harry, leading him down a road of depression and alcohol dependence. As Harry’s wife, Helen, watches her husband deteriorate, she makes an unthinkable choice to put an end to the plaintiff’s case.

In THE DISCOVERY, the authors connect the lives of two individuals across two decades, exposing vulnerabilities, bitterness, and frailties. As the case moves forward, a key witness’s testimony alters the lives of both men.

In writing THE DISCOVERY, Goodman and Kraft’s intentions were to offer readers multidimensional characters with real-world problems and to bring awareness to the severe affect malpractice lawsuits can have on physicians’ professional and personal lives.

A sheltered schoolchild in a realm of condescending gods and goddesses, Gardenia goes to Earth on a dare to  witness the unsavory side of mankind for herself.  Believing she can do better, she undertakes the formation of an entire galaxy, but without permission from Zeus.  

Zeus disciplines her by assigning an epic 13-fold creational lesson destined to take her a century to complete.  But he is taken aback once more when she makes an odd choice.  She vows to fulfill this knowledge quest by tracking down a lost race of dragons, and discovering the secrets they’ve kept since time began.

Searching the universe to meet even one dragon may be a fool’s errand, but that’s the least of her worries.  For ancient wartime resentments linger between the nations of dragons and deities, and some dragons would attack Gardenia on sight! 

Yet she ventures out undaunted, learning unexpected things about nomadic life, tender love, and mortal peril along the way.  The biggest surprise of all, though, goes by the name of Ri.  Ri may be the man of her dreams, the voice in her head, the dragon she’s seeking, or all these things and more...

Meanwhile, the Fates brew sordid plans of their own and Hera jealously sets traps and trials for Gardenia at every chance.  What’s a young goddess to do?  Flight or fight?

MY REVIEW

Letti Kane wants nothing more in life than to escape the clutches of her family. She plans to do that by excelling academically in college so she can go to university. At least, that was the plan before Kaizen D'Anna walked into her life, bringing drama and distruction along with him. There's a deep history between the Kanes and the D'Annas, a history that threatens to destroy Letti, her family and the D'Annas. There's a lot at stake, and Letti soon finds herself not only struggling to keep up her grades, but also struggling to stay alive.

Ash Born opens with a very chilling start that is full of mystery and suspense. It then settled into a slow introduction, establishing the characters - of which there were an abundance - while thowing in hints of the supernatural world here and there. There is a lot that happens in this book, events that take you from one part of the world to another part, events of which are highly intense, and although there weren't many twists in the story, the events that took place throughout the story weren't always predictable. There were some surprises, and there was a lot to unravel - not many answers provided, mind you - but the story had enough intrigue to make me want to know more. Why are strangers desperately seeking Letti?

It did take a few chapters for the story to really kick into gear, mostly because the predominant focus was on Letti's and Kaizen's insta-love chemistry, which I didn't much buy into at first because it didn't feel believable. Within the first few hours of meeting Kaizen, Letti has a outburst and snaps at him, reprimanding him for not disclosing details of his love life. It was a very intense, dramatic moment that showcased her naivity and vulnerability. There was definitely a Romeo and Juliet feel to the love story - that forbidden love between two warring families - which I very much liked, especially since both families despise each other, and the only thing they appear to have in common, the only common ground between them is Letti Kane. It seems everyone is curious about Letti, her family more so when they realise her involvement with Kaizen.

Letti was no doubt the black sheep of her family. She was so unlike them, not merely on genetic grounds, but also her traits and characteristics, particularly her ignorance and her willingness to easily trust strangers. Despite her passiveness, however, I liked the fact that Letti didn't just jump right into a leadership role, nor did she regard herself as the centre of the universe, although other characters did. Being the only human among various supernatural species, Letti was definitely the last person to know anything, so I found it exciting whenever Crawford revealed events that were taking place without Letti's knowledge, whether it be regarding her family or someone else in another part of the world. These instances allowed for a deeper insight into the dangers lurking around Letti, and it also showed how the events taking place affected not only Letti and her family, but also the entire world.

While there wasn't an overwhelming amount of adrenaline-fueled events, this was quite a dark story filled with gruesome violence and death. I didn't get to assess the extent of the nature of the war between the species as the story didn't delve into the supernatural world as such; rather, we feel the weight of the burden - more personal than political or otherwise - the war has on the two predominant families we're introduced to: the Kanes and the D'Annas. Also, the fact that Letti and Kaizen were left to romantically pursue each other in the presence of their families highlighted the fact that their dislike for each other went way beyond the grounds of genetics, so I'm looking forward to exploring more of this conflict in the sequels.

Depsite the many positive highlights of this book, there were some things that I found needed more developing. One thing I found distracting was the grammatical errors, particularly all the headhopping and passive sentences. In terms of editing, the work needed some tightening as the errors were a little too frequent. With regard to the headhopping, it became a problem because it kept pulling me out of the story. One minute I'm having an emotional connection with a character and the next I'm in someone else's head, all within the same scene. It was very jarring. It just threw me out the story at times or broke my connection with the characters. Thankfully, I was enjoying the book so much I was able to shift my focus on the story concept and how it was unraveling.

Despite those problems, I found Ash Born to be an intriguing start to the series. It difinitely pigued my interest and made me want to find out more. Based on the ending, Letti is going to be dragged deeper into that chaotic world. Will she be able to handle it, or will she falter? Time will tell. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories that sheds new light on familiar elements of the fantasy genre.

Detective Winston Radhauser knows Matt is hiding something. But as the investigation progresses, Radhauser’s attention is focused on Matt’s father. Matt’s world closes in when his dad is arrested for Crystal’s murder and Travis breaks off their friendship. Despite his father’s guilty plea, Matt knows his dad is innocent and only trying to protect his son. Devastated and bent on self-destruction, Matt heads for the lake where his cousin died—the only place he believes can truly free him. Are some secrets better left buried?

Redemption Lake is a novel of love and betrayal. It’s about truth and lies, friendship and redemption, about assuming responsibility, and the risks a father and son will take to protect each other.
