    Haze by Michael Chavez: Book Review

    Andrew is a timid, obese college student who falls in love for the first time with Nat. Joy for the couple is short lived when tragedy strikes. Then Andrew's best friend, Ilario, haunted by a vicious high school hazing attack, commits suicide. Efron, who is the ringleader of the hazing, becomes a target for the distraught and angry Andrew whose attempts at revenge fail and a blackmail demand threatens to land him in jail. Years later Andrew crosses paths with Efron, now a handsome lawyer with a cocky attitude and inflated ego. Andrew unwittingly aids Efron to take advantage of a situation for his own gain. Steeled by determination and guided by the bond created with his first love, the survivor attempts to vindicate the guiltless prey that Efron seeks to destroy. Will Andrew's efforts be enough to bring peace and healing?

    Neil Ostwinkle is growing up in a Las Vegas trailer court where he realizes early on that he'd rather marry the Professor, not Mary Ann or Ginger. He prefers Aunt Louise's colorful makeup kits to drab green army men, and he swaps clothes with his best bud Rebecca Mooney because her silky dresses feel like magic on his skin. But in school he learns that being different has frightening consequences and keeps his desires secret. Will Neil find and keep love? He comes of age in the Eighties and Nineties, a tumultuous time for a young gay man. Will he be able to make a life of his own when he's battling societal prejudice, family strife, loss, and marriage inequality?

    It’s a different world. Space has been colonized, the wealthy fly to work rather than drive, and slavery is legal. Jason’s family has been ripped apart by tragedy. The only way he can save the ones left is to offer himself up as a bondmate. The more he’s willing to give, the higher the price he can command. Devin is wealthy and heartbroken after the wife he adored walked out on him. He isn’t looking for love. All he wants is a relationship he can control. Buying a bondmate seems like the perfect solution. Yet when he purchases Jason’s contract, Devin gets more than he bargained for. "Redemption," by author Olivia Duncan Craig, is a little bit action, a little bit sci-fi, a little bit sexy. But more than anything else, it's the story of two people finding love where they least expect it.

    The Civil War has been raging for over two years. Abigail Phelps, a young northern girl, has just escaped from her kidnapper, a Confederate soldier, and is lost deep in a North Carolina forest. Frightened, alone, hungry and desperate, she stumbles upon Noni and Efuru, escaped slaves from South Carolina. Against Noni's better judgment, she agrees to help Abigail get home. On their journey, they share they share their stories: Noni, about her capture in Africa on the eve of her wedding; her ordeal aboard the ships that brought her to Cuba, and then America. Abigail tells of her family in Pennsylvania, her kidnapping and life in hiding with her kidnapper. "Heaven's Daughter," by author Maggi A. Petton, is an unforgettable journey filled with twists and turns through fear and faith, life and death, sin and redemption.

    Sebastian Black is gorgeous and charismatic – and he’s telepathic. So when his prophetess mother, Kitty Black, declares him ‘New Man,’ her tiny spiritual movement mushrooms. But when disciples die and Christian militants declare war on this ‘false messiah,’ Sebastian runs, seeking refuge. He meets ‘common’ people with unforgettable stories: an aging lesbian couple, a Mexican handyman; an anorexic woman, a meth addict; a gay teenager; an unthinking college jock. As Sebastian’s understanding of life deepens he drifts further from Kitty, who begins a plot to reel him back by conspiring with his enemies. "Black as Snow," by author Nick Nolan, twists the fairy tale Snow White into a suspense filled story of intrigue, spirituality, and greed-and the unyielding power of everyday love.

    Maggie Seaver is not stealing Angel, she is saving her.

Driving 1100 miles of rugged road, headed toward an audience with the guru of a spiritual community, she must elude not only the FBI, the Federales and the American media, but also self-doubt about the rightness of her actions. The closer she gets to the guru, the more Maggie realizes that her real quest is one of the spirit, and all she must overcome in order to heal her family. "Stealing Angel," by author Terry Wolverton, is a riveting journey through the spectacular landscape of the Baja peninsula and the landscape of a woman?s spirit. The book asks the question: how do we get beyond our own misguided actions and those of others?
