This is the first story I've read from the Astro's Adventure Series by Susan Day. What an adventure it was!
The circus is in town, but don't get too excited. Evil clowns run it! If you think that's bad, it only gets worse. These clowns have a big secret, a scary secret…a chilling secret! To top it off, they think nothing of hurting the animals they have in their show.
Luckily, the gang comes to the rescue. Only their plan backfires when they're dog-napped, but don't give up hope yet. They don't give up so easily. They're the 'best rescuers in the world', aren't they? I really enjoyed the adventure, the mishaps, and especially the humor. The Haunted Circus is sure to chill, thrill and satisfy every reader, both young and old. ...more

In Act One, the readers will be swept into a fast-paced cat and mouse game of suspense. The author paints vivid true-to-life scenes that are worthy of the big screen. CIA Analyst, Tucker and Delta Force Op Sft, Edge are the stars of the story. They are both different in every way, but both brilliant in what they do, and they both have one goal in common. They plan on bringing down a mysterious organization that wants to destroy America. These men won't be defeated without giving it their best.
I truly loved Edge and his crew. They reminded me of the A-Team and the Losers—both favorites of this reader. I especially love their sense of humor in the midst of danger, and the way they interact with each other. Their banter was never forced, giving you the sense that these guys have been together for a long time, and they work so well as one deadly unit. All of the characters are three dimensional, making them interesting, and making you care what happens to them. You'll definitely root for Tucker and Edge, and will anxiously look forward to Rise of the Phoenix, Act II. ...more

One day, I decided I was going to read all those books I never had time to read, but were piling up sky high in the corner of my living room. lol The Olympians was one of the first I picked up with it's cover barley hanging on and the pages yellow and worn with age. It was written in 1961 by Guy Bolton, who was a British-American playwright and writer of musical comedies. In his later years he wrote four novels. The Olympians was one of them.
Loved, loved this novel about the passionate love story of Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin! It's one of those tales that stays with you long after you've read it. Since then I've purchased a better copy. Still a used copy since it's out of print. :) Well worth adding to your library of keepers....more
