A fellow Triond writer has recently published a new book. I wanted to share a review of that book with you as it looks to be a very interesting read. Louie Jerome, if you read this, I think this book is right up my alley and I hope to pick up a copy of my own in the very near future!

The Poignant Tale of a Little Girl and Her Amazing GiftLouie Jerome’s Peter and The Black Dog explores the emotional pain in a young girl’s heart as she discovers the amazing power of healing.

At the age of seven, she has a life-changing meeting with a faith healer who teaches her that her gift is one that is very special indeed.As she grows older and begins to embrace her gift, she has a terrifying encounter with spirits from a darker realm. From this encounter, she learns that for good to exist, there must also be evil and for light to exist, there must be darkness.As she embarks on a quest to explore her own spirituality, her heart, mind, and soul are opened to the infinite wisdom of benevolent people and spirits who guide her toward a greater understanding of herself and the world around her.Peter and the Black Dog is an uplifting story that not only explores the wonders of faith, hope, and spirituality, but gives a profound and social commentary on accepting the differences of others.

In the Midst of Deceit

by , Apr 15, 2007
A Book review.

This book was fabulous ! I literally could not put it down !

This was my first book to read by Deborah Piccurelli, but I know it won't be my last ! The issue of believers being “unequally yoked” with unbelievers is an important issue not discussed nearly enough. It was very eloquently in the midst of a great suspense story !

The spiritual tone of the book overall was strong from the very beginning to its ending.
However, it is not so obvious by the description on the back cover, which is a shame. This error can cause a reader to put the book down and lose out on a great book !

The character are fantastic ! They are realistic and the expressions and dialog fit them to a tee.
The plot was an interesting one, and the way the author connected the main characters ocupatons was brilliant. Other than a “too obvious” hint at who the villain is, this was a fantastically written novel. I, for one am looking forward to this author's next book !

The Sign of Seven Trilogy by Nora Roberts

by , Jan 21, 2009
I have long been a fan of Nora Roberts and her new trilogy hasn't let me down one bit.

If you have ever read anything by Nora Roberts you would know that she has an amazing talent for storytelling. One of the biggest reasons I enjoy her books is because she has the ability to tell such a wide variety of stories, in all different genres and still manage to keep you glued to the page.
The same is true about the newest trilogy, The Sign Of Seven. This series is about a group friends who unwittingly release something evil on their shared tenth birthday, and how they come to conquer it and save their town.
The first in the trilogy is Blood Brothers . Here we are introduced to the three main characters, Caleb, Fox, and Gage, all friends who were born on the same day, same year. Join them as they wander into Hawkins Wood for a secret camping trip on their tenth birthday, share their shock and fear as they accidentally release what can only be described as pure evil, that sets its sights on their town for seven days. Then it returns every seventh year, for seven days, in the seventh month. See them as adults and meet the three women who arrive in town to help them beat back this evil demon. Follow along with Cal as he falls in love with Quinn, an author of paranormal books. Meet Cybil, Quinn's research assistant. Layla, who comes to Hawkins Hollow for reasons she can't explain.
The second book in is The Hollow. This one is told from Fox's side. The demon is growing stronger and his attacks on the six of them more frightening and frequent. Fox will do anything necessary to keep his family and his town safe. But will they survive this time?
The third and final book is The Pagan Stone. Gage left town as soon as he was old eough and only returns on the seven. At times he regrets even coming back to the town where his abusive father still lives. Will this time back be his last? Is he destined to die for this town he would rather leave? Despite his denial, will he fall for Cybil, changing his life, if he lives?
These three books will keep you on the edge of your seat and make you want to kee the lights on at night. Nora Roberts knows how to spin a tale that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
