Black Volta by Pete KJ – Review

After living a luxurious life with a beautiful wife and raising two sons, Carlos now feels empty. Recently divorced and without a job, he does not know what future holds for him, but his past torments him. He cannot forget the crime(s) he committed one fateful day decades ago in Ghana.

Liz left Ghana in search of greener pastures and is presently a successful career woman in the USA. She escaped abject poverty, but is she free? No.  She is trapped in a vicious cycle of supporting her needy siblings and “remains under the vice-grip power of her hoarding mother.”

The paths of Carlos and Liz cross in spectacular, unimaginable ways, and each is drawn back to the Black Volta River of Ghana, which is witness to the most dreadful day of both their lives. Can the River provide them salvation? Read Black Volta by Pete KJ to find out.

Phoenix by T.S. Alexander – Book Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

In their quest to find an inhabitable human colony in space, the exoplanet surveyor, Endeavour, arrives in the Kepler 452 system. The crew of Endeavour is surprised to find an alien civilization, known as the Haillar, thriving there. Endeavour’s arrival triggers a first contact with the Haillar, who seem to be technologically backward and non-threatening. However, first impressions are seldom correct.

Aldeea, Kepler 452 to the humans, is a planet on the border of a star-faring empire dating back countless millennia. The Haillars can wield astonishing psychic powers called eka. They are also the most technologically developed species inhabiting the empire. However, their enemy—the Scourge—is even deadlier. A war has been going on between them for millennia.

The Endeavour has landed on Aldeea on the verge of one such imminent attack. Caught between two vastly superior enemies, the humans can survive only if they and the Haillars stand united. Easier said than done. Read Phoenix, the first book in the Queen’s Avatar Series, by T.S. Alexander to find out who wins this war.
