stacking-the-shelvesStacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, whether it be physically or virtually. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

First, I’ll start with a book I have been dying to get my hands on ever since I finished the first novel in the series.  Unexpectedly,  I got an email from author Michael Fletcher with an advanced reading copy for review.  Yet another reason why I  love this guy, and I’m going to keep plugging his amazing books until everyone gives them a try.

the-mirrors-truthThe Mirror’s Truth by Michael R. Fletcher

Genre: Fantasy — Grimdark

Series: Manifest Delusions #2

Publisher: Self-Published (December 1, 2016)

Author Information: Website | Twitter

Length: 500 pages

Where belief defines reality, delusions are both strength and curse: The deeper you sink into madness the more powerful you become. But that power comes with a price. Your darkest nightmares hunt you at night. The face in the mirror hates you and wants to be free. Your fears manifest and plot your destruction.


Bedeckt defined himself by the list of crimes he was unwilling to commit. It was such a short list. How could straying from it have gone so wrong?

Now Bedeckt must undo the damage caused by wandering from his precious list. The Geborene god seeks to remake the world with his obsessive need for cleanliness and perfection, but Bedeckt is going to bring him down. Nothing can stop him. Not even death.

The two friends he abandoned in the Afterdeath chase after Bedeckt, bent on revenge. Psychotic assassins hunt him. Something cold and evil follows, lurking in the clouds above, shredding reality with its delusions. Madness and sanity war, stretching and tearing the very fabric of existence.

The dead shall rise.


Next up is a novel I received from the great people over at Tor.  Can’t wait to dive into this one.

strandedStranded by Bracken MacLeod

Genre: Thriller – Horror

Series: Stand Alone

Publisher: Tor (October 4, 2016)

Authors Information: Website | Twitter

Length: 304 pages

In the spirit of John Carpenter’s The Thing and Jacob’s Ladder comes a terrifying, icebound thriller where nothing is quite what it seems.

Badly battered by an apocalyptic storm, the crew of the Arctic Promise find themselves in increasingly dire circumstances as they sail blindly into unfamiliar waters and an ominously thickening fog. Without functioning navigation or communication equipment, they are lost and completely alone. One by one, the men fall prey to a mysterious illness. Deckhand Noah Cabot is the only person unaffected by the strange force plaguing the ship and her crew, which does little to ease their growing distrust of him.

Dismissing Noah’s warnings of worsening conditions, the captain of the ship presses on until the sea freezes into ice and they can go no farther. When the men are ordered overboard in an attempt to break the ship free by hand, the fog clears, revealing a faint shape in the distance that may or may not be their destination. Noah leads the last of the able-bodied crew on a journey across the ice and into an uncertain future where they must fight for their lives against the elements, the ghosts of the past and, ultimately, themselves.

Purchase the book at Amazon.

  1. Totally psyched for The Mirror’s Truth! I got an eARC offer from the author too, what an awesome guy. I’ll be buying a hard copy of this as soon as they become available as well, because that amazing cover. Beautiful.

  3. Ohhh! “Stranded” sounds just like the kind of book I could like – as long as I remember to have a mug of hot tea handy: all that ice… BRRRR! 😀
