Book Review “Heir of Ashes”, Jina S. Bazzar

“Every single person is sacred. Sacred means special, precious, a treasure of true beauty. That means you.”  Amy Leigh Mercree Being “special” isn’t fun. I know, every movie, book, or song continue to praise our “uniqueness” or exceptional abilities, powers, “kick-side-weirdness”. But when you are “different” or extraordinary, you have much more troubles than those who are not. Because those who are not…can continue their regular, normal life while you have to run, fight and at...

Book Review ‘The Outsider’, Stephen King

Your doppelganger exists, according to science. But Stephen King disagrees. Here’s why: “They say it’s like a Rubik’s Cube — you can get a lot of variation. And I hate a Rubik’s Cube,’ – said Stephen in a secret interview to the WP-reporter. ‘Because there’s no-one like me, Ray. You are hallucinating!’ – said Stephen King to RayNotBradbury after 13 shots of vodka at the ‘Drop-Off-Gut’ bar. ‘Okay, listen. I am a paranormal phenomenon. Simply –...
