Dark times are upon the land of
Nereth. Centuries have passed since the rightful heir to the throne was
banished. The people are losing hope in ancient legend, which foretells of one
who will rise up, overthrow the evil king and queen, and restore peace. Like
all others in Nereth, Edlyn has suffered greatly. Orphaned as a child, Edlyn
grew up as the serf of a drunken lord. Now a spirited seventeen-year-old, Edlyn
works to buy her freedom while fighting off the unwanted advances of Sheriff
Hurst. One morning, Edlyn discovers a young man hiding in the stable. He is
fleeing from Sheriff Hurst and inflicted with a sword wound that will surely be
fatal without her help. In a split-second decision, Edlyn conceals the young
man from Sheriff Hurst and begins nursing him back to health. As the young
man’s strength returns, Edlyn learns that his name is Maddock, and she is
stunned to find that he has come from the mysterious land to the north. Maddock
soon comes to Edlyn’s aid, rescuing her from Sheriff Hurst. Suddenly declared
outlaws, both Edlyn and Maddock must escape for their lives to enchanted
Ravenshire Forest and then the desolate mountains beyond. As their adventure
unfolds, Edlyn and Maddock discover that their meeting may have been more than
chance, for their lives prove bound by a fate that neither of them could
possibly have imagined.

Snippet:
Edlyn slowly turned to Maddock. “I
presume this is about you.”
            Maddock
did not respond. Wincing, he reached out with one arm to brace himself against
the wall while keeping his other hand pressed on his abdomen.
            “I
could be imprisoned for helping a fugitive, or killed,” Edlyn went on
frankly, shutting the stable door. “It depends on what you have
done.”
            Maddock
found his voice, “I will not put you in danger.”
            He
made another move to leave but swayed and began to fall. Edlyn lunged forward,
catching Maddock in her arms. Staggering under the weight of his limp body, she
lowered him to the dirt.
            “Help
me leave. I must get away from here,” Maddock begged, attempting to get
up.
            From
the sounds outside, Edlyn knew that the riders were nearly upon them. She also
saw that Maddock’s breathing was growing shallow and the life in his dark eyes
fading. He would not escape those who hunted him. For one moment, Edlyn
hesitated, looking between Maddock and the stable door. Then she spoke upward,
as if to the sky:
            “This
young man might be an outlaw, but may the spirits of Ravenshire Forest curse me
for eternity if I ever help Sheriff Hurst.”

Savannah Drake would be thrilled about starting her final year of medical school if it weren’t for one thing: she has to spend a month working in the emergency room with cold, aloof Dr. Wesley Kent as her mentor. 
 
When her first day in the ER proves to be a humiliating disaster, Savannah is ready to swear off emergency medicine forever. Gradually, though, she finds that the unpredictable, emotional experience of caring for patients in the emergency room is affecting her far differently than she expected–and Dr. Kent turns out to be anything but the arrogant attending physician that she assumed him to be. 
 
But just when Savannah finally admits to herself that she is falling for Dr. Kent, she learns that things at the hospital are not all what they seem. 
 
Faced with a seemingly impossible choice, Savannah must decide between her future career and everything that she has come to care so much about.
 

 

Snippet:
Danielle uses her fork to stab another strawberry out of her fruit salad. “Come on, you can’t tell me that working with someone as good looking as Doctor Kent isn’t going to help you enjoy this rotation a little bit.”
 

“Are you kidding?” I exclaim. “You saw how he was at the
orientation meeting yesterday. He’s completely devoid of personality.”
 
   “Devoid of personality or not, Doctor Kent is handsome.” Danielle gives me a wry smile. “At least your view at work will be nice.”

Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

A review for readers favorite.com

Light & Darkness: The Awakening of the Mageknight, is a great tale that will entertain you from the first pages. I like the fun journey that this tale took me on. I found Light & Dark: The Awakening of the Mageknight a great clean story and an original tale that will keep you interested to the end.

Danny has started school and he is walking with his friend Alonso toward the front door. As he goes through, a new girl comes by and Danny is so mesmerized by her that she thinks he is holding the door open for her.

After a few days, he finally knows her name and where her locker is. One afternoon, a bully tries to get Danny to fight him. To his surprise, Danny discovers a white ghostly figure emerging from the bully that shows him the moves the bully will make before he does them. Thanks to that, Danny wins in front of many in the school including the new girl, Sabrina.

The problem arises as a teacher observed them fighting and Danny has to stay after school. After many pages of writing essays for the principal, Danny goes out to wait for his mom and the sure punishment that she will inflict. In the dark corridor he sees movements and decide to follow something shadowlike until he gets outside to the Playground. Then a big creature that shouldn’t even exist hears him, and he is in more trouble than with his mom.

This is a very nice read for kids. Though I did like the story, plot and magic it contains, the story needs editing to make it smooth. This will clean the story and cut some of the repetitions too. The page count is a bit high for kids. They don’t have that long attention span. Good story and plot, it just need polish.
