The story blends the lives of people that - either, by fate or by providence - come together to track a serial killer that has been at large for 33 years. Leading the case is FBI Agent Mas, who staggers along a blind trail, lacking of clues and with a butchery of victims that began in the city of New Orleans and ultimately transitions to the nation of Haiti.
Policard delivers a descriptive, well-weaved plot, with twists that will make any reader gasp. Knit tightly are historical accounts, legends and myths that ornately provide the platform for the ongoing storyline. The personages in this story are well developed, carrying their own voice and personality in tune and in accord to their roles throughout the novel.
Mystery, culture, religion and carnage are the elements that will strongly bind the reader to this story, leaving them agape in the thought that two of the book's primordial characters may well be walking among us. In the wake for the resolve, you may even find yourself asking, "Would Jesus do it again?"
Whether you are an enthusiast of thrills and mystery or simply a fan of great literature, you will be sure to find yourself listing "Hunting Christ" as a personal favorite and anxiously awaiting the debut of Policard's enthralling story on film. ...more

Kate has given up on living her own life, and lives only to nurse her dying mother. When Kate is extended a proposal by a young man named Harry, she brushes him off as a lunatic. But she can't ignore the fact that he had the power to return life to a dead person. Could his proposal be a serious one?
Aimee Carter's writing style is smooth and natural, and she has taken a place among my favorites. The characters' personalities are excellently portrayed through their dialogue and actions. I was enthralled by the world so vividly portrayed by Aimee, and I have to say, I'm dying (pun intended) to read the rest of The Goddess Test Series.

Tiger Lily is the adoptive daughter of the tribe's shaman, Tick Tock, who lets her roam as free as her untamed spirit allows. You may think that being the daughter of a shaman would have its perks, but the village people believe that Tiger Lily is cursed, leaving her with very few friends. One day, Tiger Lily finds that she's wandered into the Forbidden area of Neverland, and before she has time to react, Peter Pan takes her prisoner. Of course Tiger Lily is well versed in being as wild as Peter and his Lost Boys, perhaps even more wild than they. After Tiger Lily takes down Peter Pan (oh yes, she's feisty!), a new friendship is formed and soon enough, these two young creatures fall in love. But with the arrival of a doll-like English girl named Wendy and a sequence of events that no one foresees, things between the two wild love birds change and heartbroken Tiger Lily simply won't have it.
Non-aging kids running free in the jungle, being chased by pirates and loved by fairies and mermaids is the sort of story that makes you want to be a kid again and stay that way forever. When I finished reading Ms. Anderson's rendition of her story of Neverland, I wanted to be whisked away to this enchanted place and see it with my own eyes. I thought about the story for days after I had read it, unable to pick up the pieces of my shattered little heart, and you'll understand why once you've had the opportunity to experience Anderson's world through Tinker Bell's words. Absolutely magical!

Ward Foley shares his experience of being born with multiple birth defects and growing up different. Simple tasks like brushing his teeth are an every day challenge for him. After enduring decades of surgery, he's learned not to complain, even when life hands him more lemons than he needs. I suppose it's very difficult for Mr. Foley to make lemonade with his physical limitations, when even holding a brush to his mouth is a task. When most of us would have thrown in the towel, Ward Foley only pushes harder.
Admirably, Mr. Foley uses both the bad and good experiences to make a difference in people's lives. In his book, he details accounts of unexplainable blessings and the darkest of times he's endured. "Thank My Lucky Scars" is written as if it were a close friend telling you his life story. As I laughed, cried and empathized with Mr. Foley, I found in his words wisdom and lessons that I shall never forget.
Thank you, Ward Foley, for gifting me your book. As I look at the first page where you've dedicated it to me, I realize how writing those words was nothing short of a feat for you. I will treasure your book always.
