Homecoming and Revelations, books two and three, the complete series, are now available for sale on the Kindle store!

What if a single touch could change your fate forever? What if moving to a new school meant your entire world would be turned upside down?

Juliet LaVoe is a normal 17-year-old girl with a not-so-normal life. She lives in a world where vampires, werewolves, and androidians roam the streets as the tyrannical government attempts to capture and exterminate them. Her father, Colonel Arnold LaVoe, is the head of the division tasked with the job of eliminating them. She also lives with a big secret: her boyfriend James is a vampire.

As the government starts to come closer, Juliet tries to hide her boyfriend's true identity from her father. What will happen as she is caught in an odd love triangle with Marcus, an androidian boy that seeks the challenge to destroy the very fabric of her relationship with James?

The adventure and romance awaits!

2.0 out of 5 stars Twilight reincarnated and not in a good way May 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give anyone credit for sticking it out and writing, but this book was just to similar to twilight for me to see any originality from the author. It seems the only substance to the two main characters dialogues were the words "I love you". And even that gets tiring. What's really missing here is the creativity of sub plots, characters one can relate to, and true meat of a story. I won't be reading the next book in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really? May 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow..I couldn't even finish this book..I love a good paranormal romance..but this was just sad..choppy..sappy..who actually talks like that..ex: your the most perfect guy I know..I want to be yours forever..but it is love at first sight..and an android loves her too. Her dad is a psycho colonel..trying to catch these people who are tainting society. This book kind of goes in circles with her thoughts about James. She just met him..she loves right away..and he her. Love at first sight. Ugh..too cheesy! I got to the point where I said I can't read the same thing over and over..I love you..without you I die! Not for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars no. May 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm sorry. I can read about anything.I am 16% into this book, and already the characters are madly in love, the main character is bipolar or something and freaks out whenever someone talks to her. A lot of similarities to twilight already, except the father is military instead of police... And the addition of future/ militarized society and the androids. The speed of this book is too fast, it is unbelievable in a real life sort of setting. I don't know if I will be able to finish it, and that's saying something. One star is all I can give.

1.0 out of 5 stars All Bones, no meat!! May 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author states that this is his attempt at Twilight meets The Hunger Games. Those are two fantastic first books of two fantastic series; this book is not. There is potential; there is possibility, but it is not yet achieved. Logan Bryne gives us a skeleton of a story with no meat on the bones, no substance, no ability to embrace the story.

With books 2 & 3 already out, it's unlikely this author will revisit this story line to clean it up. The poor grammar and sentence structure I can overlook when written by a young author. The inconsistency between past tense and present tense shows lack of attention and I can overlook this as well IF THE STORY LINE IS GOOD and if the plot makes sense (neither the story line or plot are engaging). Unfortunately, I cannot overlook the underdevelopment of characters. I want to like the Hero and heroine, but they lack substance, character, emotion with feeling with which the reader can bond, let alone feel empathy for. The reader cannot determine whether the h is strong or weak, shy or bold, a loner or easy to make friends, intelligent or naive.

The h is starting a new school and states in one sentence she's nervous, but she doesn't behave that way. The h has had an online friendship with Marcus seemingly for years, but when they do online face time, they both behave passe -- despite the fact that we veered from our protagonist first-person POV to one paragraph of omniscient POV regarding Marcus and learn that both were happily apprehensive about this meeting.

Merrily, the reader goes along with the heroine's first person POV, then, without a chapter change or segment break, we are thrust into an omniscient POV for a paragraph or two. Logic be damned for this writer!

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awful June 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beginnings is so predictable, except for the inconsistencies, which are the only interesting part of this novel, that I skimmed the last half of the book. I never do this. Ever. It is that bad. There is no character depth whatsoever, which might have been a saving grace. Instead, Juliet is possibly the most annoying heroine ever. I really kept reading in hopes that James would bite Juliet, she would have an allergic reaction, and Juliet would die already.
As for the writing style, I found this to be awful as well. Changing POV in the middle of a paragraph and then changing tenses in the same manner just doesn't work. At least the author's spell check works! One star for working spell check.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry - I cannot recommend June 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
But I can't give this more than one star. I wasn't even going to post a review but I got an email via Amazon. The closest thing I can compare it to is to imagine that the dog from the movie "Up" wrote the book. If you have seen that movie you know what I am talking about. Perhaps the author is very young and has not learned how to "flesh out" characters yet, but the main character Juliet seemed very flat and not very bright. Her teachers were the same way. I found myself rolling my eyes every few minutes. I can't put my finger on it other than feeling it was like "sentence sentence sentence sentence.... " with no embellishment. It felt like the author published a rough outline that has not been completed yet. I could go on and I could get very sarcastic about it but I'm not sure of the author's age and I don't want to be more unkind than is needed. If the problem is extreme youth, then I might tend to be impressed, but there is definitely room for improvement. To the author - work on giving your characters personality. People don't fall in love without actually getting to know each other first. Girls nights are not just a bunch girls polishing nails and "pigging out". Keep working on it / practicing - you will improve :)
