Fairy Tales (Boxed Set -Books 1 to 4), by Shirley Martin
What happens when you combine a good witch, a humble fisherman in love with a princess, a lovers' journey to a land of magic, and a vampire who seeks mortality?

You get some very exciting tales and great romances.

Review - The Sacrifice: If you enjoy romantic fantasy, this story won't disappoint. I loved the dark, mystical feel of the work, the sweet but determined heroine, and of course, the dark hero. Briana and Weylan are an ideal couple who not only discover their love for one another but also the importance of other aspects of their world and lives. Just like a good romance should deliver. Well done, Ms. Martin!

ONE MORE TOMORROW is a wonderful vampire romance. S.A. Martin has done a truly outsta...

Demon Bonds: The Making of a Demon (Psy Demon Chronicles Book 1), by Margarita Matos

Wildmind, by Clive Anthony
Everyone knows that the ancient magic of the mind is wild and dangerous, this is how it has been for centuries. People cursed with such power always lose control, killing themselves and anyone near them. That’s why they’re called wildminds. That’s why they’re hunted and burned in public.

So how is it that the primitive dog-breeding tribes from across the ocean, the Dogmen, are able to use wildminds to gain advantage in a highly improbable invasion? Attacking the mighty Empire of Searleddon, they magically control huge wolfhounds, deflect arrows, and even seize control of the minds of their enemies - all without going wild.

Two men are pivotal in the desperate defence of the Empire, though they could hardly...

#Houston70: The Miracle Journey of Apollo 13 (Hashtag Histories), by Philip Gibson
What if there had been social media during the Apollo 13 Moon mission?

This is not a book in the usual book format. It is the story of the incredible Apollo 13 mission in 1970 told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts written by the main participants and observers. The narrative is based on astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the astronauts’ conversations with Mission Control and live broadcasts of the major U.S. TV networks covering the unfolding drama hour by hour.

There is a list of major sources at the back of the book.

Apollo 13 was a mission that gripped the entire nation and the world. It would test the courage, endurance and ingenuity, not just of three astrona...
