South Of Heaven by Jamie Collins was an absolutely wonderful collection of poetry. 

Beautifully written collection of poems with a bit of inspiration,  emotion,  and meaningful insight.

I'm sure the poems in South Of Heaven all stem from personal truths,  but Collins has held nothing back in portraying the beauty of well written poetry.

My Love Is Dying
My love is dying
and I don’t know what to do.
I tried to survive it
but I think I’m dying too.
I don’t know where I’m going,
only god knows where I’ve been.
I feel a river flowing,
through my veins again.
It runs as cold as ice
and as blue as the sky.
I feel it deep within
my love is dying tonight.

I give South Of Heaven **** (5) Stars,  BK Walker Books

She Serpent by Jim Woods was another fabulous short story.  I must say Jim did it again.

Detective Harper finds an ad in the local newspaper about "At Sea Burial Services" aboard the Sea Spirit.  Something just isn't right about him, he can feel it in his gut.

When his superiors tell him he has a enough work through the department,  Harper decides to take a moonlighting job to investigate the Sea Spirit on his own time as a Security Guard. 

He meets the owner of Sea Spirit,  Angela Mastro after setting up a burial service inquiry.  Angela explains the procedure for an at sea burial,  along with the prices.  As Harper looks further into the activities of Sea Spirit,  he learns that he may have been wrong.

Though his gut is still nagging at him,  he agrees to go to dinner with the beautiful Angela Mastro.  In light of the evening,  Harper now finds himself liking Angela.

Will Harper's instincts prove him right,  or get him into trouble?  Find out in She Serpent.

Woods has always written great material with an imagination that puts his own twist into crime and mystery.  This short story was no different.

If I Could Ask God Anything by Kathryn Slattery was a fantastic book!  Easy to read and full of questions and answers that are easily understandable for any child.

It starts off with a parents guide which was fabulous. Then broken into sections of the bible, with common questions kids might want to know.

There is an explanation of the questions with bible verses to refer to,  along with a reason at the end of each question as to why God did or said a particular thing.

I absolutely loved this book and not only can it benefit children with questions, but new Christians as well.  Aren't new Christians like children anyways as they try to learn about their faith?  I wished I would have had this book when I first started reading the bible and became a new Christian.

Slattery did such a magnificent job with If I Could Ask God Anything. I would recommend this book to anyone that has questions about God,  Jesus,  and the bible. 

It would be great for any Church to have on hand as well.

I give it ***** (5) Stars, BK Walker.  http://bkwalkerbooks.weeby.com

All I Want is Everything:  A Guide To Love, Peace, and Happiness by Kim Upstone was a fantastic read.  A great guide for self improvement.

With exercises throughout the entire book to help you change your mindset,  and advice on how to change the way you think,  this title was great.

I followed the exercises and found myself enjoying what Kim Upstone lays out for a blueprint on life.

Getting you thinking and putting into practice to control your thinking, this title helps you gain control of your life and your mind.  Broken down into areas of life we may be struggling with,  it's easy to read and follow Kim's guidance.

Once you read this book,  you will definitely have a different outlook on life, choosing what you will let bother you and what you will now be able to overlook.  What's really important vs. what's not.

Upstone did a fabulous job engaging the reader,  and though it will take time to make your new way of thinking a habit,  it will definitely get you looking at life differently.

I give All I Want Is Everything:  A Guide To Love,  Peace, and Happiness,  the first installment in the All I Want Is Everything Series ***** (5) Stars,  BK Walker.  http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com

Silent Kill by David Fingerman was an excellent mix of mystery and suspense.  From the first page Fingerman holds nothing back.

Louise Miller is a female cop that gets a lot of hassle from her fellow officers.  Her brother Andrew is a new cop in a different precinct.

When Mark Lone Bear,  her friend and fellow officer turns up missing,  Louise puts in all effort to find out what happened to him.

Throughout the investigation,  her brother who is getting broken in as a rookie,  stumbles upon a development in Louise's case,  Mark Lone Bear and his car.

When two more people end up missing,  Andrew and Louise work to find answers to Mark Lone Bear's murder and the kidnappings.  The closer they get to finding the murderer,  the more danger that befalls upon those they love and care for.

Was Mark Lone Bear mixed up in something he shouldn't have been that led to his death?  When one more kidnapping hits Louise a little too close to home,  will she save all three before they end up dead too?  Find out in Silent Kill.

Fingerman did an excellent job in his first full length murder/mystery.  Full of suspense and with an imagination that will leave you wanting more,  this is one title you will want to get your hands on.

The perfect mix of crime,  mystery and suspense,  I couldn't put it down until I knew what happened in the end.  I give Silent Kill ***** (5) Stars,  BK Walker.  http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com

Ordeal by T.K. Varenko was a fantastic read!  Unlike your normal Vampire Romance,  Varenko captures the essence of paranormal with such beauty.

Luella is the queen of vampires,  and engaged to Antoine.  The problem is that both want to rule the Vampire Realm. 

When Antoine sends a mere human to his queen in celebration of their engagement,  he never expected her to fall in love with him.  In his anger,  he has this mortal put to death.

In her devastation,  Luella goes on the rampage and seeks her revenge for the death of her loved one.  After her killing Antoine on her killing spree,  she must be punished.

Her punishment sends her into an infant body where she must endure life as Alice, a human.  As she grows,  her memories are lost to her.  That is until she finds herself fascinated with a man,  that she believes is of her dreams. 

In an unexpected turn of events,  she finds love and her reason for being. 

Varenko did a fabulous job with this story.  Using poetry to tell this tale,  she was able to entice and enthrall,  keeping your interest until the very end.  The beauty in which Ordeal is written,  is both exciting,  and completely different than any other "Everyday" vampire romance.  Writing in this genre is a bit challenging,  but to write in this genre using poetry?  Phenomenal!

It truly is Poetic Justice.  I give Ordeal ***** (5) Stars,  BK Walker,  http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com
