The nitty-gritty: Part nail-biting historical journey and part Terminator-like thriller, The Clockwork Dynasty will surprise readers with its unexpected emotion, violence and unputdownable, page-turning storytelling. “We cannot succeed,” she says, and her voice is a melody, the chirping of clockwork birds.

THE VOODOO KILLINGS by Kristi Charish – Review
Posted May 30, 2016 by Tammy in 4 1/2 stars, Reviews / 22 Comments

The nitty-gritty: A twisty plot full of zombies, ghosts, murders, magic and mayhem, darkly atmospheric with Charish’s special brand of snarky humor. The way Cameron’s pupils focused on me, part of him still had to be in there. There was no way he was a four-line, permit-friendly zombie—the temporary kind you were still allowed to […]
