    Review- Rise Again Below Zero by Ben Tripp

    Rise Again Below Zero by Ben Tripp    My rating: 3 of 5 stars Blurb: Billions died and rose again, hungry for human flesh. When the nightmare reached Sheriff Danielle Adelman’s small mountain community of Forest Peak, California, it was too late for warnings . . . forcing her to lead a small group of survivors out of hell, all the while seeking her estranged runaway sister at any cost.  Two years later, the undead have evolved.

    Guest Review: Crime Seen by Michaelbrent Collings

    Guest Review of Ugly Beautiful by Sean-Paul Thomas

    Ugly Beautiful by Sean-Paul Thomas My rating: 3 of 5 stars This book had potential. The premise was good. A douchebag named Jason stole a boatload of money and screwed over his only friend Gary in the process. He took off and ran into a beautiful young woman….and then the real story began. At that point I was already getting aggravated with the misspelled and misused words. I found it to be distracting and that’s a shame, because the seeds of a cracking tale were there.

    Review- Angel Dust Apocalypse by Jeremy Robert Johnson

                                    Angel Dust Apocalypse by Jeremy Robert Johnson   My rating: 5 of 5 stars I slept on it and decided Queen Critical would bestow her ever-elusive 5 Stars upon this notable read. There was a such depth to this read that I couldn’t help but connect with the characters/writer on a fundamental level. The stories were thought-provoking, entertaining, and cleverly written. I highly recommend this piece, not as weird, bizarre, or horror, but just as fiction written to make you feel, think, ponder. 5 Stars- The League of Zeroes – Body Modification. Will it…
