Title: Echoes (The Pria Chronicles Book One) Author: Shannon Rieger Summary from Amazon.com: Michael Hilton was six years old when he fell into an unexplained coma. His mysterious powers emerged when he inexplicably awoke, forever changed. Unearthly creatures that once were hidden from view were no longer invisible to him. Like the creatures living incognito amongst the human race, so will Michael attempt to conceal from others his strange powers and abilities. But his ability to see creatures prowling in his world is just the tip of the iceberg.
Chapter One Michael Hilton on the topic of His Flair Like the creatures living incognito amongst the human race, so will I remain anonymous as I write my experiences. I stopped drawing the monsters I see inmy notebooks; it was freaking out myteachers and my parents. They seemed to forget them pretty quickly once I stopped, but it didn’t mean that the monsters were gone. I have to get this burden off my chest since seeing creatures isjust the tip of the iceberg. Some people can climb mountains using only their knowledge of the area, spiked, steel-toed, hiking boots and mere nylon ropes to keep them tethered to the rock. Yeah, those nylon ropes are said tobe strong, difficult to cut on sharp rocks, but you wouldn’t catch me up there trusting my whole life to them. Others can diagnose the most disgusting ailments without throwing up. I just google some of the ailments and my stomach churns… Imagine touching and prodding and poking around… I’d throw up for sure.
I have heard of people in Niagara Falls walking on tightropes or going over The Falls in a barrel. Crazy? Yeah. But they have courage that far surpasses mine any day. I am envious of those who canacton stage, memorizing all the lines, enveloping the role asifit were second nature. Man, I see spots when I have to present something in front ofmy classmates. I just don’t have that sort of stage fearlessness. Have you heard of those who can count the number of matchsticks simply by glancing at a pile ofthem scattered on the floor? Truly remarkable, yes. But what in the world would that power serve?
I have some abilities that are, inmy opinion, way cooler, maybe even unparalleled. I, unfortunately, can’t flaunt them to impress girls; in fact, only a few…er…beings inmy world even know I have them. One of those is a cat. Go figure. And believe me… Henry isn’t impressed.

Blog Tour Organized by: Happy Lil Book Tours *Hosts were provided with a copy of the book for review purposes in exchange for their honest reviews and opinions.*
A couple of weeks ago we participated in the Awaken by G.R. Thomas book tour hosted and organized by Happy Lil Book Tours. Lately I’ve been really into reading fantasy novels, so I was excited when we were invited to participate in this tour. This story is told through the first person point of view, but on occasion it is told through the third person point of view. The book was full of mythical creatures, like angels, demons, and of course magic. The story is full of adventure. The main character Sofia’s life turns upside down after an accident occurs at the hospital she works at. She begins to doubt everything she’s ever been told. She will be put to the test and will have to fight for the survival of everyone and everything.

A couple of weeks ago we participated in the Category Jeremy (Chronicles of Dover’s Amalgam Book Two) by Elizabetta Holcomb book tour hosted and organized by Happy Lil Book Tours. Since this is the second book in the series and I haven’t read the first book it was a struggle to read since I do not like to read books out of order. Since the story is told from Jeremy and Beau’s point of view it wasn’t too hard to figure out what happened in the first book. I am just assuming that the books mirror each other. The book has a cool dual time period concept, which was something I don’t think I have read many or any books with a similar concept. It took a while to get into reading the book, but it would have probably been a whole lot easier to get sucked into the book if I would’ve read the first book before this one. The book is about love and time travel, there is suspense and even magic powers.
Have an ALMIGHTY Day!
