The Demon Series #1

By Aoife Marie Sheridan

Abigail is nineteen. Her job, she hunts demons.

Her life so far has been tough. Having witnessed her family’s death and her mother’s suicide, she’s been taken in by a priest, who believes her when she says that she sees ghosts. Father Peter trains her as a demon hunter with three other members, one being Daniel, who isn’t what he seems.

But when a possession goes wrong, and ghosts start to attack Abigail, the tight rope she has on her emotions soon starts to loosen. Abigail draws the unwanted attention of the Reote, and she finds out a lot more than she was willing to learn.

Knowledge is power, but for Abigail, it’s her undoing, and the only thing keeping her together is Daniel.

After not having responded to Lillie McFerrin’s prompt word each week, I wanted to do it last week with the prompt word of “ENVY,” however by the time I got around to post the links I’d been locked out of doing so.

I first started responding to Lillie’s prompt words back in January/February of 2012, and a few months I decided to compile an anthology of all the prompts I’d posted links for on her site. I wanted to have 100 items in it, however for one reason or another I came up short. This meant I had to back track to pick the prompts I missed responding to.

It’s taken me a while to complete this task and I’m happy to report that I’ll me releasing this anthology shortly. Right now I’m waiting to receive a print PROOF COPY for it; which I’m scheduled to receive on Monday, November 24th. I wanted to have all of the 100 items to be five sentences long, but with the editing which has occurred this could no longer be possible. The book is entitled Micro Fiction – An Anthology.

The following is one of the items in the book which has been edited so it would only have five sentences.


Mary looked out her window that morning and seeing the rain realized she’ll have a very miserable day, she asked her mother, “Would it be okay if I explore the rest of the house today?”

“You can, but remember the attic is still off limits; the staircase there hasn’t been fixed yet.”

Turning on the light switch at the top of the stairs, she slowly walked down the steep FLIGHT of stairs. Once she got to the bottom Mary saw a huge wooden chest in a corner, and went over to investigate it. The instant she opened it, she discovered it was filled with all sorts of stuff any girl her age would love.

I found “Take a Piece of My Heart” by Diane Rose Duffy to be an almost true story of what happens to a young girl like Kara, who’s too young to really understand the true meaning of love. Kara, against her parent’s wishes decides to run off with a guy her parents had forbidden her to see and gets married to him; which only could have happened because of her youthful innocence.

Before long she discovers the truth of what the adorable man she’d married is truly like, and the happy ever after she once thought she’d get is merely is now a nightmare no woman wants to be in.

Not only did the cad she married take a piece of her; he took quite a lot more from her. I believe her husband had taken almost everything from her, everything that is except for her will to survive and her determination to find solace somewhere far away from him.

This is a story any woman who’s in an abusive relationship and has been able to escape from can relate to. Once Kara leaves her husband she gets on a roller coaster of emotions like any another woman who has lived through the same ordeal.

While I usually find 50+ chapters a bit excessive for a novel of this length; however, Ms. Duffy skillful use this number of chapters to her first outing as an author, makes it like a diary of Kara’s existence with her husband, from when they first met, through her horrific life with him, her escape, to the journey in which she finds the happy ever after she has search so long for.

It’s too bad I can only give this book 5 STARS, as it deserves more.

It’s Christmastime and once again Nicky Wells has offered her readers another novella in the Christmas spirit. “Fairy Tale in New York” is the fourth time I’ve had the pleasure of reading one of her writing endeavors/endeavours.

It’s a been about a year since I read this author’s first Christmas novella, “Spirits of Christmas,” where Jude learns the true meaning of the holiday, and wins back the love of his girlfriend Carrie. Now a year later he has taken her and their baby Maya to New York City for a pre-Christmas vacation/holiday, where they experience the holiday season in a much different manner they’d planned.

Everything’s basically fine, fine that is until Jude, with his still newly found Christmas spirit, gives up their seats back to someone else who needed to desperately get back to the U.K. because his wife is in labor/labour. They stay an extra day in the man’s hotel suite after which they’ve got no place to stay since all the hotels are booked and the falling snow has shut down the city. They wind up experiencing Christmas Eve, as well as the next two days, with the sheer joy of helping others.   

I’ve once again enjoyed reading something from the mind of this author that I’m more than happy to give it 5 STARS. And if haven’t her previous Christmas novella, “The Spirits of Christmas,” I recommend you do.

The following review is my honest opinion for the copy I received in a giveaway on GoodReads.com

One thing I don’t do in writing my reviews is to look at what other reviewers have already written, I don’t want the ones they wrote to have any influence on me.

I’d looked forward to reading this book after reading its description, which is one of the reasons I decided to enter the giveaway for one of the 100 copies being offered.

Unfortunately I became more and more disappointed in what I read. To begin what I felt the 62 chapters it has to be somewhat excessive with some of the chapters being only 1 or 2 pages long. The adding of a character’s name didn’t help matters since you had same character associated with a few chapters in a row.

There was no continuity for the characters in this as they could change from one chapter to the next. The book is also in need of some copyediting as well.

I’m not going to say anything about the publisher for this book as there’s plenty of information about it already. So for his efforts, the best I can give this book is 3 STARS.

When I began to read Pico Iyer’s “The Art of Stillness” I read it like any other book; sitting in a chair in front of my computer. However, the book didn’t seem to do anything for me as it felt like I just read a string of words, sentences and paragraphs which have been put together.

But this couldn’t be the case as the book had promised to take me somewhere or increase my knowledge. From what I’ve read about the author, I’d anticipated getting much more. If the book isn’t the problem, then the problem rested with me. Sitting totally still, the realization came to me I must change; I didn’t have to change anything about myself, I had to change the way I’d approached in reading this.

Laying on my bed in total silence, not a sound being able to distract my thoughts, and my mind a blank I began reading the book anew. This time the author’s thoughts and ideas became clear, and I began to understand this message.

“The Art of Stillness” is a wonderful way to escape reality and to take someone to places they’ve never been to physically. And if your mind is allowed to take a trip to nowhere you’ll actually wind up in a place where your mind is allowed to wander aimlessly; and once it comes back, you’ll find yourself refreshed and feeling like someone new.

Mr. Pico writing I feel talks to you in a very subtle manner, a manner in which you’ll learn a lot about things and yourself. I can’t see giving this book anything but 5 STARS.

I received a hardcover copy of this book in a giveaway on GoodReads.com and this review has been my honest opinion.

While the writing of this book is relatively good and I enjoyed the genre mix it contains as well as the action in it, there are several factors which wound up distracting my total enjoyment. Unless I missed it, given the four bodies had been discovered in Siberia, I don’t see how Dr. Orville got the Russians to allow his research to be moved to NY City instead of being done in a place like Moscow.

I found the author’s dating each chapter to be a nuisance as multiple consecutive chapters had the same date. After reading Chapters 20 – 27 with the date of November 18, 2015, I come to Chapter 28 with a date of November 18, 2013 without any rhyme or reason; after which we jump to the Epilogue with a date of spring 2018. In addition, I found the manner in which the author had decided to break the story into chapters to be somewhat distracting as well.

Unfortunately, while I’d love to have given this book a better rating the best I can do is only 3 STARS.

I know it’s been a while since I’ve responded to one of Lillie McFerrin’s prompt words, but I’ve been engrossed in my other endeavors. And as you can see from my posts here, one of them is that of having recently become a Book Reviewer. In additional, I’m happy to announce that a few days I’ll be releasing my second book, Micro Fiction – An Anthology. And has soon as I can, I’ll be providing details about it.


Edna is really a sweet person once you get to know her, but unfortunately is not the type of person you really want to be friends with.

Now don’t get me wrong, she’s a great individual who she does have one trait which can turn her deadly.

Vying to have anything her little heart desires as long as she doesn’t know you have it, everything’s okay.

Yet, the moment she finds out you do, you need to watch out.

You need to watch out because she turns into a green monster known as ENVY.

As you can by reading my blog in the past week I’ve read and reviewed 5 books [three of them were from the backlog of e-books I have, the other two were for books I’ve won on GiveAways on GoodReads.com]

Currently I have 5 more books in my possession that I’ve won from GoodReads.com which I need to read/review, and I’m still waiting to receive two more. This doesn’t include any additional books I might win this week.

I can’t believe my 2nd second career as a Book Reviewer has taken over that of being an author; and even though this might be the case this past week I’ve been able to enter another 10% of the physical edits I’ve done for my anthology into the Word document on my computer.

My endeavor to compile my anthology of Haikus I’ve written is currently on the back burner as I need to rethink how I’m going to compile them in the manuscript. I feel it’s better to do it now, while it’s still manageable.

My two other endeavors are currently on hold, but I expect I’ll be getting back to my YA Urban Fantasy, The Secret of the Well by the end of this week or by the beginning of next week.

The following is my honest review for a copy of this book that I won as a giveaway on GoodReads.

The reason I decided to enter the drawing for this book is that I’ve never read any sort of play before except for the Shakespeare ones in Junior and Senior High School. And I’ve found the experience of reading these two one-act plays by Kerri Kochanski a wonderful experience.

In Spitting Daisies, the story reminds me of the days in New York City when the IRT line trains had no air conditioning and some could actually stick at least part of their heads through an open window. The conversation between a boy [Frank] and a girl could have been an actual one between them. Two students both going to one of the colleges there, where one saw the another, while the other doesn’t imagine anyone would be noticing her with all the real beautiful women there; beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, which is a theme I saw prevalent here. This creates “conflict” between the two, while at the same time Frank believes he’s helping the girl, the girl is in fact saving Frank’s life. When they both realize the truth between them, the girl hugs Frank in an increasing embrace.

In the second one-act play Rachel has to come to the reality of what had actually happen when she had been a little girl and what she did when she became the victim of incest by a male member of her family. She also needs to create a new image in her mind of who she is in order to move on with her life and with a relationship with Frankie who wants to find the Rachel she’s been hiding because of her dark past.

As I said in the beginning of my review I found reading these two one-act plays a wonderful experience which is why I giving this endeavor by Ms. Kochanski 5 STARS.
