“Joshua’s Folly” by Toneye Eyenot is the second book of the dark-fantasy series “The Sacred Blade of Profanity.”
The first one, “The Scarlett Curse” is an amazing little novella where the main characters and background are introduced.
This book reveals the thread in flashes, sewing all the stories from the first title together. What seemed to be the centre of the plot, is not. Who you thought to be the hunter, turns into prey. Everything makes sense for the reader, but all doors remain open for THAT feeling telling you nothing will stay like this for long. Read more “BOOK REVIEW – “Joshua’s Folly” by Toneye Eyenot”
“Cataclysm” by Theresa Jacobs is a very special book. For suspense readers and thriller fans.
Jacobs makes crime-fiction and horror collide, getting the reader curious and stuck to the story.
Terrible, disturbing murders take place in a little town where Chief Salinger faces the devil crawling between the victims… “What happened to them”, “what kind of beast could do something so terrible…” are the common thoughts in the main roles of the story.
The harrowing events will change the characters’ lives forever. Two naive kids becoming the glue of the plot, a close friend of the victim who introduces the reader to the monster…
Jacob’s writing is sweet to read, easy, honey. The thriller is slowly poured on your mind. The book is very well edited and you can observe the hard work and care in the process. The author is obviously a perfectionist, thank you for that.

This FRIDAY RECOMMENDATION. Some pieces of PROJECT 26 (J. Ellington Ashton Press)
Shake and… enjoy.
“Yeti Yearning” by Essel Pratt is a very, very special book. I don’t even dare to review it as any other regular title.
What can you expect when you have this book in your hands? We are not used to the concept of “yeti”, and belonging to Project 26 (which is an amazing terror book collection project from J. Ellington Ashton Press), you ask yourself “what is this?”.
I need to start from the point that Pratt’s writing is very pleasurable to read, which makes his books sincerely gratifying to hold. He brings a sugary tone to threads, in a way that he exposes a bloody scene giving you the sensation of watching ballet.
That said, we can observe in the blurb that the main story consists of a romance, but he goes far beyond that. I won’t ruin the story, so I won’t talk about the plot. This book gets you underneath the Yeti’s fur and his devastating emotions, from arousing to fury, going through sharp abandon and confusion when he discovers our lovely, transgressive girl.
Personally, in Pratt’s work, I found a sweet story, a very unconventional, divergent sweet story, out of many reader’s safe-zone, which gives us that very needed splash of blood and dark eroticism we’re expecting. He does.
You don’t need to be an erotica fan to like this book, nor a myths hunter or a bloody reader. You only need to feel like enjoying a good afternoon with what is a very good book, that will take you through controversial, suspicious, violent, provoking paths and, want it or not, you will close it with a grin crossing your face.
You didn’t expect what the author just provoked in you, but there you are, you and your unpredictable book and a story you will never forget. I’m pretty sure, when Pratt finished the last line, held back the impulse of writing a final “You’re welcome.”
