In the world of fiction, there are many writers out there. And as there are many writers there are just as many different types of genres. One of these genres is the fantasy genre. It is an area of fiction that several authors can write well and some that I’m afraid to say cannot. Luckily I’ve had the pleasure of reading some good writers. And, unfortunately I’ve had the displeasure to have read some bad ones. Now, one that stands out has an uncanny grasp of the written word is D.P. Prior who is one of the good writers out there.

I look upon my wife and child. I see them laughing and smiling. I feel the sun on my face as it fills me with joy and life. I see my son’s hand holding mine, I am finally home. I can now spend the rest of my days with them. I’ve finally been released from mortality.
I look up and see the sky darkening. The clouds are spiraling, the ground begins to tremble. I look over to tell my wife to go, run away, and find shelter, but I don’t see her or my son. The ground is no longer under my feet. I am falling, or am I flying? I can’t tell, I only know that I can no longer see nor hear my beloved, or my son. I scream to the heavens and ask for answers, but none come. I swing my arms around whirling like pinwheels to right myself but there’s no use, it doesn’t work. I close my eyes for a moment and open them to see that the sky is gone, the ground is gone, and the world that I knew is…gone.
I close them again and can feel the nothingness of space against my face, I feel the lack of air around me. I open my eyes and blink them several times to focus them, but darkness prevails. I lift my hands up to my eyes and rub them to make them focus and still nothing. I am now floating. Thoughts run through my mind, thoughts of loneliness and fear rush within those thoughts. I try to scream and nothing comes out. I take in a deep breath and nothing.
As I am about to give up I feel a pressure, not a sound but a pressure. And, I am pushed in every direction I know, this way and that. I see flashing lights on my eyelids, I try to open them but they do not, I can hear muffled voices, no wait, I hear a singular voice; a voice filled with laughter, a shrieking cackling voice. Someone is happy and makes it known by his…yes I can tell it’s a man’s voice. Loud and boisterous, and I can make out what he’s saying as he bellows out. IT’S ALIVE, ALIVE!!! I open my eyes and look up towards a man smiling down on me…oh GOD, who are you?
Soulless The Immortal Gene
A Review By. R. F. Cisneros
In the past, I’ve been asked how I’ve picked the books that I’ve done reviews on. In the past, I would’ve usually given a snarky and smartass remark. But, not this time. I feel like I’ve grown over the years and in doing so, it has changed my attitudes to others and how they feel when I say things to them. So I sat back and thought long and hard about it and then I considered the answer for a moment and it reminded me of how this review came to fruition. I first started reading a different title, by a different author…It’s ok, I’m not going to mention the author’s name I’m a better person than that. But as I was saying, I was reading a different book, and believe me when I say that it hurts when I can’t get through a book. So, after trying twice to get through it, I sighed and put it aside. I then moped around my home, wondering what to read and review next. Continue reading “Soulless: The Immortal Gene”
There are several authors I’ve picked up in the past because either I’m introduced to them by a friend or because I’ve gotten a notice in my email, “look at this new author, we’re sure you’re going to like them.” As much as I find that annoying, I’ve found some decent writers from those emails. One in particular is Annie Bellet–an urban fantasy writer I picked up recently, reading her Twenty Sided Sorceress series. The title of her first book, Justice Calling, is a great book. I have to agree with others out there when they say, “If you’re into The Dresden Files, or the Iron Druid series then you’ll enjoy this series.” Continue reading “Justice Calling: Review By R. F. Cisneros”
What’s better than reading your favorite book? Well let me tell you, it’s reading your favorite book and knowing that it’s part of a trilogy. You’re probably wondering why trilogies are so great. Well, they continue the story, they make the lives of your favorite characters continue on; and in my opinion, only the best stories have them. The trilogy of Lord of The Rings is one of these great stories and that’s just one. There are many more stories out there that are set up as trilogies and some of them are very well written with fantastic lands and characters. Continue reading “Upcoming Wardstone Series Info”
The fantasy genre has had many authors come and go, some good and some not so good. Over the years, I have had the pleasure to read some of the good ones. I have also had the misfortune to read some of the bad ones, and believe me, there have been some bad ones. But I digress. I am not here to pitch out venom or bile toward the ones that I didn’t like, the ones that pushed my eyes and brain to the brink of painful bleeding with their badly written stories and badly thought out plot lines.

John Wick: A Review
By. RF Cisneros
If there has been any reason to see a film by Keanu Reeves, this is the film to see. Many people have mentioned and also they feel that Keanu has lingered into obscurity after his Matrix films, but with this film I believe that he has made a subtle comeback in being more selective with his film roles. One of these roles was when he came out in the fantasy film that was inspired by true events. A film that was titled forty-seven Ronin. But this review is not about that film it is about the film titled John Wick which is a true to the bone revenge film. A film that was done with just enough action and drama to keep you on the edge of your seat. The drama portion is based on a wrong done to the main character of the film’s namesake, and the action is the sheer action that takes place throughout the film. Continue reading “John Wick: A Review”
The Equalizer, A Review
By. RF Cisneros
There are times when you hear about a reboot of a TV series you grew up watching is announced and you hope that they don’t make a mess of it, this reboot is not one of the those. The reboot of the mid eighties series of the same name was first announced in 2010, but did not get off the ground, it wasn’t until December 2011 that it was reported that the film was back on track with Denzel Washington to play the lead role of Robert McCall, and to be directed by Antoine Fugua.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, A Review
I grew up reading comics and enjoyed being transported to a different world that was created by the writers and artists that put out their weekly issues of heroes and villains. You had your X-Men, The Avengers, Batman, and Superman just to name a few but when a new series came out in ninety-eighty-four that was about creatures that were not in your usual scene for a better name human I had to check it out. I went to my usual comic book haunt and asked about the series. Continue reading “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”
Skin Game A Review
I myself have never really expressed my love for the Urban Fantasy Genre of literature. Yes, I’m going to call genre fiction literature, so go ahead show me all those up turned nose expressions, because I’m not going to let that get to me.
