Review of The Unholy

The Unholy
     A Novel

Paul DeBlassie III

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

The religions of this world have been in conflict from the beginning of time. God of one is not always the god of another. In The Unholy, spiritual presence is understood on different levels.

Dictates and lies are used by a dominant church leader to control his flock comes in conflict with a young therapist's beliefs, who was traumatized as a child. Claire and the cleric have a disturbing connection other than their dispute over what theology to follow in getting to a heaven.

The dark side of man's reach into the unknown is one of the themes that control the background of a story that will put chills running down your spine while reading a familiar tale - Power in one man's hands leads to a disturbing and an unholy ending.

Mr. DeBlassie's prose keeps you interested in a dynamic twist on human relationships that are clouded by their belief systems. His characters are well defined and collide into an unexpected ending.

I will be reading another of Paul's novels in the future.

Review of BOUGHT


Charissa Dufour novel

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

A young princess Bethany finds herself in a position of being abducted while in route to visit another noble. What happens next is intriguing and brings her down to earth. Her real self-comes out during her adventure.

We all understand or believe in this genre a knight in shining armor will be coming to her aid. Wishing and wanting the man in a complimenting storyline to be that knight may lead the reader astray.

The two stories meet in a way that will leave the reader on edge, wanting more and a conclusion they should enjoy. Sometimes you don't get what you want.

What you will receive from reading Ms. Dufour's adventurous lead into the Dothan Chronicles is a page-turning story of a young royal in turmoil. Dufour's characters and their personal encounters are well written. 

Purchase: I was happy it was free on Kindle.

Review of Sexiest Couple Alive


M. Clark aka Mary Ting

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Olivia and Nate have had a rollercoaster ride in their relationship. Both living in the cut-throat fashion world where people are glamorous, they try to find away live in love.

But love doesn't come easy when people are playing with your life. Olivia is confronted by an ex-lover who won't let go. Nate believes he is in the wrong relationship. How their conflicts collide is the storyline.

You'll be biting nails waiting for the two together. When they do, it is not over.  It isn't over until it's over. If Nate goes forward with his heart physically, he may end up in jail.

Another road blocks their love affair. Only reading this Romantic, a bit sexual, will get the answer.

Again, Ms. Ting novel gave me a few enjoying nights reading this eBook. Purchase at

My Rant: I am disappointed in my Fellow Americans

I am disappointed in my Fellow Americans

Note: I did not vote for Donald J. Trump or Hillary R. Clinton.

As you know, but if you didn't, I am a Vietnam Veteran with a college education and am well read - book a week. And I know and understand History, Geography, and Psychology, which it seems many of you don't.

When you are in a contest like the Presidential election, you know the rules are going in. It seems like many don't or didn't, because now and as in the past after the election is over, people want to change the system because their candidate didn't win according to the rules. Where were these people between this and previous elections?

Maybe they were too young. Then now you have a chance to change the system of an election after the vote of the electoral college votes as their States decided. You think you have that right now. Legally, I believe you can. I'll look it up.

But if that happens, a minority will decide the fate of our country, which is unacceptable to me. I would go to war over this move. How dare you tell me you change the system, after the fact, so the few in the electoral college can tell us who should be President? That move, my unknowledgeable, is Nazism. Pious few telling others what to do. 

The reason we have the system we have, and our government founders put in place is so a few States (California, New York, Florida, and Massacuhettes) do not have the power over the rest of the country because of their population. In the present system, all States are on an equal plain.

Many candidates for Presidents have won the Popular Vote but lost the electoral vote, Democrats, and Republican, but they understand the laws of our Constitutional Republic. You want a straight Democracy move to Venezuela et al. and see what an uninformed citizenry get for voting for one person.

Lastly, if you ally with criminals like George Soros and Black Lives Matter to change our laws through thuggery, you will end up fighting a war against people who know how to fight, Like Me.

Have a safe Sunday and Life.

Review of The Revelation Room


Mark Tilbury

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Receiving salvation and spending eternity with one's God, is what many souls want to attain. In Mr. Tilbury's novel a young lady reaches out and ends up in a community run by a nut case that speaks to God.

Her parents hire a detective to find this lost child. In the detective's pursuit, he is put in a compromising position, which leads to his son's and friend's investigating into both the girl's and his disappearance.

The whirlwind begins when these investigators find the community’s location and become part of a small group that is preparing for the journey to meet their maker. Ruled by one man of dubious intent; the events that follow makes one think of becoming an atheist looking for a way out of their predicament. 

Goosebumps will arise when reading the thrilling confrontations portrayed by Mr. Tilbury. He keeps you turning the page to see what's next up to the unlikely conclusions.

It was a great Holloween read for me. You can read it on a dark and rainy night.

Review of Finding Liberty


Regina Puckett

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Time in the future, an air balloon operator finds a bundle of joy on his way as a trader while stopping for fuel. The world is sparsely populated which helps him make the decision to bring up this child.

His new parental love grows as the young lady develops. She learns his love and rules that will help her understand the world they live.

The relationships of the few characters are robust and healthy which enhanced the storyline. And, the prose moved along smoothly leading to Liberty's independence which came with a price she didn't care to pay.

A quick story, I enjoyed.
