MY THOUGHTS:
ALEX KERLEY AND THE WRATH OF THE VAMPIRE by Douglas Tanner is an interesting Middle Grade/Young Adult/Inspirational/Horror Age group: 12 and up. The Monster Hunters#2, but can be read as a stand alone. See, “Alex Kerley and the Terror of Bigfoot”.
 Four months after….Bigfoot in the Ozark Mountains…
In this one,Alex and his friends, confront, who else? But a vampire in southeast Kansas. He has been stalking them, watching them,knows who they are, knows Alex’s father works for a government agency that tracks monsters, and now he is out for revenge.  This one is based on the Bender family of the 1800’s , a group of serial killers in Kansas.
While, this is an entertaining, fun, tale of vampires, revenge, chaos,monsters, courage, danger, and hope, it is also scary, complex, and did I, mention scary. However, with this said middle grade children, or young readers, will enjoy this fast paced, adventure filled tale of revenge and yes, vampires.
With engaging characters, an interesting storyline, and delightful dialogue, I can see how young readers would enjoy Alex, his friends, and the chaos around them.
Even with or because of,  a cliffhanger, readers are sure to hold their breath, until the next installment! We need more! An interesting and exciting tale to be sure. I can hardly wait for the next installment.
Received for an honest review from the author.
Please be aware: (Due to the recommended age group of 12 and up) This is a scary story, especially for young readers, with some very gruesome elements,such as violence,blood and gore.  I would, as the author has suggested, use parental guidance when reading this tale.

Book Description Courtesy of Amazon:

Where does a firstborn girl fit in a world dominated by men? When Tiadone was born, her parents had two choices: leave their daughter outside the community to die in the wilds, or raise her as male and force her to suppress all feminine traits. Now, as the first female living as male in her village, Tiadone must prove her father didn’t make a mistake by letting her live. As her male initiation approaches, Tiadone knows every eye on the community is on her, and desperately wishes to belong and finally be accepted.—But at every step, traditional feminine gifts and traits emerge, and the bird she’s been twined with is seen as a sign of the devil. Worse, as Tiadone completes her rites, she finds she is drawn to her male best friend in ways that are very much in line with the female gender. Confused and desperate, Tiadone tries to become what she must be while dealing with what she indeed has become: a young woman who may be able to stand up to her despotic rulers and uncover her real purpose in life.

My Thoughts:

I liked this book, but I think the ending left quite a lot to be desired. There is promise to this story, and it was just left hanging. I don’t know if that was intended because there will be a sequel or if it was meant for the readers to imagine their own ending.

Hopefully the former, because I’d really like to see where Tia and Ratho end up.

Tia, whose father chose to raise her as a “declared male” so that she could live, has willfully and purposefully suppressed all her femininity to this point in her life. And has done so amazingly well, because that’s all she’s known.  She goes on to confront and succeed over every societal expectation of her failure. She finally arrives at the realization that mere men can’t suppress what God and nature intended, and she begins to accept all that she has and will become.

Fortunately, the love she has for her best friend is reciprocated, although only after some mystical visions shown to Ratho by Tia’s rapion, Mirko. The relationship aspect between the adolescents in this book and their rapions (birds, similar to raptors) are a unique idea, and I really enjoyed how this author explored it. I found myself to be quite sad at the releasings and could feel the sense of pain these kids experienced when losing their partners.

There were so many good parts to this book that I really don’t want to give it a 3. However, I feel like there could have been so much more. Tia has such a strength of character, and a great relationship with her father, and Ratho, and Mirko, that I felt there was so much more to their story than the way it ended. I guess I feel jilted, and I want to know more. If I knew this was a first in a series, then I wouldn’t hesitate to give it a 4, because I would know there is more coming. As it is, I think this author potentially cheated herself and her readers from a truly excellent and thought-provoking conclusion.

The Pickpocket Who Inherited a Goldmine. After his harsh beginnings as a rough-and-tumble orphan on the streets of London, Jake Everton takes his rightful place as the long-lost heir of an aristocratic family with magical powers – his personal quest, to follow in his slain parents’ footsteps as a Lightrider in the age-old battle of good versus evil. In the fantastical nooks and crannies of the Victorian Age, Jake and his friends (including his pet Gryphon!) find no shortage of adventure – righting magic-related wrongs, solving supernatural mysteries, and exploring wondrous new worlds. A Dark Presence… Something stalks a quaint town in the misty mountains of Wales, attacking humans and magic folk alike. Jake and his friends must get to the bottom of it – and in the land of deep, dwarven mines, the bottom can be very dark, indeed. Dive into The Gryphon Chronicles, a rollicking historical fantasy series (with a hint of steampunk!) that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids, from the imagination of New York Times bestselling author, E.G. Foley. “A wonderful novel in the same vein as Harry Potter, full of nonstop action, magical creatures, and the reality that was Queen Victoria’s England.” –The Reading Café

MY THOUGHTS:

THE GRYPHON CHRONICLES: THE DARK PORTAL by E. G. Foley is a fantastic Fantasy/Fiction/ Adventure for Young Readers, ages 10 & up set in Victorian era. #3 in “The Gryphon Chronicles” but can be read as a stand alone. However, I would suggest reading the other two in this series, only because it is an awesome series! See, “The Lost Heir” and “Jake and the Giant”. An ex-pickpocket and orphan becomes an heir! Jake Everton, heir of Griffon finds himself and his friends in Wales,on this adventure, where something in attacking humans and the magic folk. Deep within a Dwarven mine,things go bump in the night, and good vs evil. Filled with yet more adventure for Jake and his friends. It also has Dwarfs, fairies, unicorns, mystery, magic, supernatural mysteries, and righting wrongs, Jake also wants to follow in his parents footsteps, and become a Lightrider. Oh yeah, have I mentioned he has a pet Gryphon! Jake’s first year with a family for Christmas is coming up soon! What will be his next grand adventure, I wonder. I will have to keep reading to find out,I suppose. But do be warned, some parts may be a bit scary for younger readers,so if they are reading alone, check on them often. Well written with engaging characters, as the story continues you see new characters, with more magic and more adventures for Jake and his friends. If you enjoy Harry Potter, or maybe even Fairy Tales, you will enjoy “The Gryphon Chronicles”. This is an awesome series, from the first book to this one, no mistaking this author’s writing skills. What a fantastic job of storytelling as the adventure continues! I have enjoyed this series and look forward to the next grand adventure. Received for an honest review from the author.

November 29, 2013 NY Times and USA Today bestselling author E.G. Foley presents The Gryphon Chronicles, a new series of historical fantasy adventure novels that’s as much fun for grownups as it is for kids!

Big Trouble…

Reunited with his aristocratic magical relatives, and finally getting used to his own supernatural powers, orphaned ex-pickpocket Jake Everton, the young Lord Griffon, travels on his first-ever holiday to beautiful Norway. There, at an amazing (steampunk!) Invention Convention, his cousin Archie, the boy genius, plans to unveil his marvelous new flying machine to the scientific world.

But legends of the Viking Age die hard in Scandinavia. Danger strikes as famous Victorian scientists start mysteriously disappearing. When Archie vanishes, too, Jake races to the rescue. With the help of his trusty pet Gryphon, he tracks the kidnapper to his lair—only to come face-to-face with an angry Norse giant!

From the whimsical steampunk oddities of the Invention Convention to wondrous worlds of Norse mythology, join Jake and his friends on a giant-sized adventure full of hair-raising dangers and big laughs!

MY THOUGHTS:

THE GRYPHON CHRONICLES: JAKE AND THE GIANT by E. G. Foley is a delightful Fantasy/Fiction/Adventure for Young Readers ages, 10 and Up. Set again in the Victorian Era. #2 in “The Gryphon Chronicles” but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading book 1, “The Lost Heir”. The adventure continues in “Jake and The Giant”. Jake Everton, now Lord Griffon, has finally be re-united with his parents, and is coming to grips with his magical powers. When Jake’s cousin Archie, goes missing, along with other scientists, Jake races to the rescue. He comes face-to-face with a Norse giant. Filled with Norse mythology, magical creatures, a flying machine, legends, and of course a bit of danger and lots of adventure. Harry Potter has nothing on Jake and his friends. A wonderful Historical fantasy for young and old readers alike. Another hit for this amazing author. Well done. What an engaging story from beginning to end with a feel of Steampunk, historical,Fantasy and Adventure all mixed into one grand adventure. BIG TROUBLE comes to Jake and his friends in “Jake and the Giant”. Another must read! Received for an honest review from the author.

THE GRYPHON CHRONICES: THE LOST HEIR by E. G. Foley is an intriguing Fantasy/Fiction/Adventure set in Victorian  London. # 1 in “The Gryphon Chronicles”. What a beginning. A mixture of fantasy, almost like a steampunk and historical. Jake is a orphaned pickpocket on the streets of Victorian London, living by his wits.

An reader who enjoys fantasy, and mystery, young or old is sure to enjoy “The Lost Heir”. I enjoyed this story. Well done, indeed! Well written with vivid descriptions, and engaging characters and what a sinister storyline. I can hardly wait to see what grand adventure Jake and his friends will find next.
