Synopsis:

When NYPD detective Jacob Jennings signs on for a three-year tour with the US Army’s Military Intelligence unit, he expects to be deployed to Vietnam like his father before him. Instead, Jennings finds himself working a complex undercover sting in cooperation with the Chinese police.

The drug, cherry berry is the hot new topic on the streets of Hong Kong, and while dealers and gang members insist the drug is real, no one seems to have seen it and it is not for sale there. All that’s known is it’s powerfully addictive, made in Hong Kong, and it causes horrifying physical side effects to certain users.

Infiltrating the Chinese Blood gang and posing as an American hustler, Jacob draws closer to the drug’s suspected creator, the high-ranking medical research scientist Dr. Wo Ling Cheung. Cheung’s association with Jerry Baofung, a much-feared sorcerer, is unclear to others but not to Jennings.

Having been raised by his grandmother teaching him the occult, Jacob is unwilling to dismiss Baofung’s power as superstitious fakery. Sorcery, Jacob believes is the obvious contribution Baofung would make to the creation of cherry berry.

Tracking this drug to its source, Jacob realizes he’s running out of time because Cheung plans to unleash it on the streets of New York where he is already catering the drug to a dangerous clientele with unusual tastes and compulsions.


My Take:

I will first start with the way the book felt… I don’t know why but I have always liked holding big books. It makes me feel like a grown up lady, de-stressing herself after a day of work. The page layout feels so good to me, though the font size is small and was affecting my poor eyes but I think if it was any bigger then the book would have been more bigger meaning I would’ve been intimidated by it’s size.

This is currently a busy time for me so I was anyways intimidated by it’s 457 pages stature. I kept it aside to read it for holidays. I’ve preparatory leave now, which apparently is for studying for my semester exams but, oh well! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

The first line of the book was an interesting start.

Jacob Jenning’s grandparents, Elizabeth Bonaveau and Paul Jennings, were opposites.

At first I thought that might be their personality but then I felt that might be their race and I wasn’t wrong. The very next line stated what opposites stood for.

Paul was born in North Carolina on a farm in a poor black area. Elizabeth Bonveau was born in an exclusively white area in Slautir, Louisiana.

After some weeks, finding his evenings free, Paul enrolled in Elizabeth’s class to earn his high school diploma, thinking to perhaps improve his station in life. His kind, farm-boy nature was so beguiling in its innocence to Elizabeth that she fell in love with him almost immediately.

The words chose to make sentences are well thought. The story flowed effortlessly. The reading was easy and fast. I didn’t have to drag myself through it. It has been some time since I received this book so when I picked it up and read the title I doubted that I would like this book, then I read the summary and remembered why I agreed to review this book. I will tell you the reason in a bit. πŸ˜›

As an infant, Jacob Jennings was ill tempered, but his tantrums never upset his grandparents, Paul or Elizabeth, especially Elizabeth who realized that such temperament was a natural part of a child born with Jacob’s probable gifts. As years passed, Jacob replaced his tantrums with phases of “distancing himself” to show his displeasure with someone or something. But he soon proved himself to be a precocious but solitary child.

There’s just a passing mention of magic like it’s secondary to all the action happening, in the summary, but when you read the book, magic is a huge part of the book. The magic bits were very interesting to read about.

“I do understand, Grandma. I think that maybe I love magic so much that I am just sometimes too eager to continue learning.”

Jacob has to team up with Asian police authorities and students of sorcerer Yongli Baofung who are known as “Children of the Dark.” Jacob navigates their world with powers of his own. He grew up learning the art of Dark Magic which is what is there for him against the occult evil forces.

The element of love, ahh… now the story’s complete! πŸ˜›

There was no doubt that, albeit his first time, he was on the old well-traveled rote of love and he could hope was that…
… he was not walking it alone.

All in all, I liked the book. Here are some sneak-peak snippets. To be honest, there would have been a lot more but I totally forgot to mark passages because I was so into the story.

“Jake with Secrets not only one who got secrets.” She crossed her legs, lit a cigarette and blew the smoke directly into his face. “You know?” Again she blew more smoke in his face. “We can hide our secrets like American butterflies do.” She tried to blow more smoke at him, instead she choked on the next mouthful. Ginger was not a real smoker and he knew she only did it occasionally in order to appear sophisticated and even then she only knew how to puff the cigarette and blow out the smoke.

Why the summary appealed to me was because the book was all suspense and mystery in the summary regarding a new drug that ironically has a seemingly harmless name, Cherry Berry; involvement of black magic in the mix? Well, it did work out well! πŸ˜‰

Jacob was stunned. He picked up the packet and examined it.
“This is the cherry berry everyone is looking for?” He said it before he realized but now the terrible mistake was the elephant in the room.
Dr. Cheung grew a very broad smile and intertwined his fingers.
“Oh? I was not aware that anyone was seeking this product. And you say that everyone wants the cherry berry? How interesting.”
“Well, the word on the street is that the name is an enigma, something that people talk about but no one has any real knowledge of. It’s more like a legend, I imagine, than anything else.”

Why do authors always end good stories with cliffhangers? This surely has an interesting end. I couldn’t stop myself from sharing it but to still keep you guys interested I won’t write the name of whoever dies. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

…*****’* ashes had burnt into flames… and something was rising from them.

Summary:

The Paradise Resort is the ultimate in exclusive luxury island resorts, a private haven for only those deemed worthy enough to attend.

Landon Verger is a titan of industry and the founder of Paradise. The resort’s opening weekend should have been a celebration of wealth and excess, but without warning, it has gone silent.

Sam Verger knows his father only too well; the great man casts a long and dark shadow. He also knows that Landon Verger’s enemy list is long and varied, any one of which would love to see his father dead. Sam seeks to employ a professional to investigate the island, and Mac is one such woman.

An ex-military officer, she works dirty jobs and doesn’t ask questions if the money’s right. With her like-minded team, they travel to Paradise. Mac thought she’d seen everything that death had to offer, but she was wrong. What started out as a simple mission will quickly become the most desperate fight for survival she’s ever faced. There’s only one thing that she’s sure of: not everyone is getting out alive.


My Take:

This book is phenomenal! πŸ˜€ ❀

When I read the synopsis I was interested in reading this book but when I saw Matt Drabble’s name on the cover I was sure that I had to read this book. I must say, not a decision I regret. πŸ˜‰

I’ve read one of his books earlier, namely,Β “Asylum II – 13 More Tales Of Terror”Β (Click on the title to read my review) and I loved it. Matt kindly gave me one of his other books “Abracadaver” which I started reading right away but had to put it down because of college work and forgot about it. After I read “The Last Resort” I picked up “Abracadaver” again and considering the time passed between now and the last time I was reading it, I was sure that I would have to start again but to my surprise I remembered everything that I had read.

So, now I’ve read three books by this author and there’s no doubt that I will be reading all of his books. I never had books that could get me out of reading slumps but I found the author whose books are going to be a great help to me. Thank you, Matt Drabble! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

The writing style is, to describe in a word, engaging. With some books you rush the reading to just get it done with but not with his book, not even a page. I never wanted to rush even a word of this book. I loved being captivated by Matt’s words, the world he paints is magical, the way your attention is captured is mindblowing, you will be kept rooted to your seat neither wanting to keep the book down nor wanting the story to end. πŸ˜‰

I know this is supposed to be a review of “The Last Resort” but I am so impressed that I can’t stop myself from singing the author’s praises. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Anyways, getting on with the review… (finally πŸ˜› )

The story is what the summary tells you but the book as a whole is much much more than I could put in words. The characters are unique and you will find all types of personalities there. Throughout the book the uniqueness of the characters was maintained.

The plot line might seem simple but the way the suspense unfolds is very interesting. There were subtle hints pointing towards the answer of the questions that the characters had and the questions which keeps the readers thinking, if you are an observant reader then you surely can guess but it will still surprise you.

The action sequences will have you cheering for the characters, the loyalty some of the characters show will tug at your heart, some characters might make you grit your teeth and you are sure to feel the adrenaline rush.

The minute details with which the author describes every thing is commendable. No scope for lazy writing. This book has every detail paid attention to and all the loose ends tied.

I am not going to reveal much because I seriously want you to read this book and mind you, it will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I will be including some snippets from the book here when I post my review for Abracadaver. Stay tuned for that. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

Summary:

When three corpses are found at a construction site in Philadelphia, homicide detective Samantha Ballard is assigned to investigate the bizarre deaths. The bodies seem like a hoax – withered like ancient mummies, yet dressed in modern day clothing. As more mummified corpses begin to appear throughout the city, Samantha must embark on an investigation that erodes the line between the possible and impossible.

Jack Allyn, a radio DJ who thinks his career is in a downward spiral, has his world rocked by the unusual murder of his friend. As Jack begins to search for answers, he finds himself coming face to face with a force that is as malevolent as it is entrancing.

With his life in danger, Jack must join forces with Samantha to save the city from an evil that threatens the people of Philadelphia. But with the odds stacked against them, can Jack and Samantha save their city from a primeval force with a deadly purpose?


My Take:

What an ending! You don’t exactly get this kind of an ending in the thrillers. Usually the protagonist saves the day going unhurt but well, life is full of surprises. πŸ˜› If the ending wasn’t this then maybe I would have had a difficult time liking this book because there was no chance for anything otherwise. It could have been anything else only with a lot of convenient co-incidences and that makes a thriller lose it’s charm for me.

I am glad that the author kept it real with the ending. πŸ™‚ I started my review with the ending of the book, but, well, it was worth mentioning. One of those rare endings that keep you thinking, “Whoa! What just happened?” πŸ˜‰

Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-51-07-1-1

A good thriller always makes me happy, this is one of those good thrillers. πŸ˜€ Everything, the way the things came up, the characters’ reactions to the strange situation, their change in beliefs, everything was kept on the line with realism. The author didn’t get carried away with any one particular thing which always works in the favor of the book. A good balance of the characters’ back story, the mythological creatures’ back story, the setting’s description, the feelings of the characters for each other, was kept. Nothing confusing.

Both the main characters were trying to fight with their guilts, come in term with their pasts, and straighten their present. It gave a nice real touch to the strange killings they were dealing with.

Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-51-26-1 Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-51-41-1-1

With Samantha Ballard as a detective and Jack Allyn as someone who somehow found himself amidst all of this, having two of his friends killed, he was bound to tag along with Samantha. Their friendship was circumstance infused and fitted well with the story.

Screenshot_2015-12-01-07-05-10-1

The end still has me thinking. An unconventional end to a mystery thriller. πŸ˜€ Oh, and yeah, kind of a hint in the end for further books. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

Summary:

Gabriel Schist is spending his remaining years at Bright New Day, a nursing home. He once won the Nobel Prize for inventing a vaccine for AIDS. But now, he has Alzheimer’s, and his mind is slowly slipping away.

When one of the residents comes down with a horrific virus, Gabriel realizes that he is the only one who can find a cure. Encouraged by Victor, an odd stranger, he convinces the administrator to allow him to study the virus.Β  Soon, reality begins to shift, and Gabriel’s hallucinations interfere with his work.

As the death count mounts, Gabriel is in a race against the clock and his own mind. Can he find a cure before his brain deteriorates past the point of no return?


My Take:

What a book this is! ❀ Everything was so well presented: The story, setting, characters, twists, mystery, and even the dialogs that I couldn’t find anything that would stop me from giving it 5 stars. πŸ˜€

By now, you guys know how I love to share quotes that drew my attention but, well, you are going to get a lot of examples here. Some 15-16 sets of lines- that I wanted to include. After finishing the book did I realize that I have highlighted so much. You’ll see. πŸ˜›

Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-27-34-1

The explanation of immune system in this book is tremendous. Seeing Gabriel’s enthusiasm when he talked about the immune system was something that could boost people around him. But as that never happens in reality the same happened in the book. Apart from Father Gareth and Yvonne, no one appreciated him or even believed him for a long time. But then after facing a whole lot of problems he created a vaccine for AIDS- The Schist Vaccine but when he neared 70 years of age he suffered a stroke and was hit with Alzheimer’s which had him admitted in the Bright New Day nursing home. There he sees slugs who inform him that a new epidemic outbreak is on the brink but Gabriel shrugs the event as a result of his degenerating brain disease.

Then, when the slug’s warning turns out to be the reality. Gabriel starts his investigation of the new Black Virus and then agrees to meet the slugs’ leader, Michael.

Victor, who is the death, motivates Gabriel when he starts losing faith in himself. I think, what he says applies to all the situations in real life.Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-26-49-1

He figures out what the Black Virus is, what causes it and creates a vaccine which is more of a poison for it.Β Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-28-25-1

In the end, the climax actually, Gabriel makes a deal with the Schistling, the Black Virus. Every line in the book was worth reading. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Screenshot_2015-11-30-21-25-01-1

This book is Gabriel’s race against time. He has to find a cure for the virus before all his faculties leave him entirely. The novel switches swiftly from the flashbacks from the past to the situations in the present, giving more insight in Gabriel’s life.

The main concept of the immune system rebelling against the human intervention in making it stronger is interesting enough but the book covered a lot of real life aspects. I love a book that doesn’t ignore these little things in our life that hold a lot of significance in the pretense of telling a story. Here are the examples of problems that usually a human faces-

Synopsis:

A good vacation delivers you home alive.
This is not a good vacation.

When Rayanne commandeers her husband’s weekend fishing trip, she knows it’ll take work to adjust Owen’s attitude. She has no choice. Since the tragedy, they lost so much. They need to reconnect.

Without her knowledge, Owen texts his best buddy, Daryl, to join the getaway. The three of them aren’t alone in the backwoods of Georgia, though.

Owen took something that didn’t belong to him. Something that changed their lives. And now the owner wants it back. By any means — including a posse led by a killer dog.

At first, Rayanne is clueless about the item and its value. One thing becomes crystal clear: If it’s not returned, they might not make it home alive.


My Take:

The cover intrigued me first. It is quite simple yet there’s a beauty to it, a call for suspense. I read the blurb next and was drawn to it immediately. The first line itself held me captive.

A good vacation delivers you home alive.
This is not a good vacation.

The book is so smooth to read, I just devoured page after page, didn’t even remember when I started it and when the book ended. You just go on and on without realizing that you have been reading the whole time, the sentences are so well formed that it easily provides you a mental picture for all that is happening. πŸ˜€

I liked the characters, they were really well-described and maintained their demeanor throughout the book. The opening chapter actually gave me the complete idea for the book. It is the hooking chapter and the author has a done a good job with it. πŸ˜‰

I will say that this book is more of a thriller than suspense because for me all the twists were guessable, but the action was something else. This book is packed with action. Fighting with a fierce dog, rifles, arrows, baseball bat, punches, knife, you name it.

There isn’t much happening but you don’t even realize it because the story is so fast-paced that you don’t even notice that you are half through the book and well, the story is still there were it was a few pages back. The description of events is what carries it further.

To conclude, I think that the writing was genius and I would have liked more to the story. πŸ™‚


Why would I pick it up?

 

 

If not for the suspense then for the way this book is written. πŸ˜€ Smooth as butter! ❀

Synopsis:

Isabel Leon, the star of a survival reality show, thinks she can endure anything. But when she unwittingly gives an unscrupulous mogul a chance to profit from her murder, she becomes the target of a terrifying killer who makes nature seem tame by comparison.

At first left for dead, she is rescued by a medical research team that operates outside the law.Β  She awakens to find she’s the living proof of a breakthrough that can change the world. Some people would pay any price to control it. Others would simply steal the secret–even if it costs Isabel’s life.Β As powerful rivals pursue her, Isabel must risk everything to protect those she loves–or die again tomorrow.


My Take:

Fabulous! That’s what the book is. πŸ˜€ It’s a piece of work, really! πŸ˜€ I loved it! ❀

I have always been in awe with the things that science can do and science fictions take it to another level of WOW! πŸ˜‰

To start with how I felt about this book, it has all the aspects to be a bestseller. The writing is nice, the story flow is up to the point, no unnecessary hitches, and the character development is brilliant. The way the protagonist comes to see life in the end is how I have always liked my characters to grow. The other characters too show positive changes.

Isn’t the title and the synopsis intriguing? πŸ˜€ I think I made a good decision picking this book up and man, it was really worth my time.

The book focuses on two different things and ties them off in the end. One is the Life Insurance Sale (which I had no idea of) another is a formula that helps slow the death of brain cells eventually bringing a person back from death. Both the aspects held on to my curiosity throughout the book.

These snipets are regarding the process of using the chemical X101 on a dead person (I won’t tell who, well, it’s the opening of the book but hell, I wouldn’t be spoiling it for you. πŸ˜› )

The part that just hooked me onto the story was- Screenshot_2015-09-24-09-42-28-1

I mean how can you not be drawn in when people come back from being dead to bring on justice.

 

 

I think where seriousness is in full swing, the humor lurks to keep things sane. With all the bringing the deal people back business, people couldn’t help make death related jokes. I don’t blame them. πŸ˜› Β 
Screenshot_2015-09-24-09-43-32-1

I kind of didn’t highlight some more or forgot to take snapshots of them, anyways there are more humorous stuff like this one. πŸ˜› Β 

 

 

 

Some of the philosophical stuff that I adore in my books. It comes with the character development and that’s what makes the deal a fair deal for me. πŸ˜‰

This is kindof how it all ends, just to keep your interests piqued and to tell you why I think there might be a sequel on its way. πŸ˜€ I can’t wait for it. πŸ˜‰

I might have gone overboard with the snapshots this time but seriously guys, if I could, I would have just handed you all the books. πŸ˜€


 

Why would I pick it up?

A good science fiction is really good to keep our brains in awe to the powers of science and to the dangers it brings with all the wonderful things. πŸ™‚
