    Awakening by K. Lippi: Book Review

    "Awakening" by author K. Lippi is a seductive entertaining love tale between a guardian demon and its human. For Emilia Miani, a fifteen year old girl from San Diego, CA, the supernatural world and its creatures only existed in books and movies. But when she went to visit her father in Japan and met Shin Kurosaki, a Japanese demon assigned by one of her ancestors 500 years ago to be her guardian angel and protect her from her destiny, supernatural events begin happening to Emilia and they continue escalating.

    First Night by Tom Weston: Book Review

    "First Night" by author Tom Weston centers on Alexandra O Rourke, aged 16, who is not a happy camper.

As if that wasn't bad enough, she is being haunted by Sarah, the ghost of a seventeenth century Puritan. Oh, and there is the small matter of the charge of witchcraft to be sorted out. Armed only with big shiny buttons and a helping of Boston Cream Pie, the sisters set out to restore the Natural Order. Can Alex solve the mystery of the Devil s Book? Can Jackie help Sarah beat the sorcery rap? And can they do it before the fireworks display at midnight?

    Another wild ride with Max and the flock trying to solve a major problem.  Will they succeed?

    "The Legend of Moon Mountain" is a fable based on the Ancient Egyptians' tradition that their ancestors came from Ruwenzori (Moon Mountain) in East Africa.

Shani and her companions, rather than finding their ancestors beyond the mountains, become the ancestors of the people who settle the Nile Valley and create the Ancient Egyptian civilization.
