Nocturnal by L. Jerome Word

Christopher Lance is a reporter in Atlanta GA. He is a haunted man dealing with things that had happened almost 15 years ago. His good friend Bre was murdered and he found the burned body. He became famous from solving another story and murder not to long ago. He has been known for doing things that are dangerous to most people but, that's how he gets his stories out.

His best friend Mac and him are on a stake out trying to get information on the mayor. He's in love with his long time friend and girlfriend Jordan. She's been there for him for a long time. Mac has been trying to tell Christopher that he needs to do something concerning Jordan for years now but, he just can't seem to make up his mind. He knows Mac is right though.

Harmony Tennessee is where Christopher grew up and where he met Bre. After her death he was never quite sure what really happened and he knew that he needed to solve the mystery. Dorian Tom was Bre's mom back then and said that Ford was the guy that killed her daughter in court. Something wasn't adding up after he had met with Dorian to talk about something else altogether different. But she caught on to him pretty quickly and he was found unconsense on the floor of his apartment.

With this mystery about his friend growing stronger inside of him. He knew he needed to wipe away those ghosts so he could become more human again and sleep. He takes a trip to Harmony to talk to the sheriff there and doesn't get much from it but, a treat or two. He doesn't plan on stopping his search.

He and Mac take a trip to go and find out more information on Dorian but, end up getting quite beat up and shot at. People are just not going to talk to him. That still isn't going to stop him, he needs to know and then he finds out about Bre maybe being still alive. He needs to find out for sure.

Alexi is a young and beautiful model and Christopher needs to go and talk to her. Even though Dorian doesn't want Alexi to see him she does any ways. To Christopher, he knows for sure that she's Bre his long and not so dead friend. Then ford escapes from jail and is after Dorain to kill her for putting him into prison.

The story moves pretty fast. Its worth reading. I got to say I love a good thriller and this one just keeps moving faster as you read. Many things happen. But to find out how it ends you'll have to read the book.

Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

This is second book in the Caster series. Ethan loves Lena so much that after what happened to her uncle something had changed in her. She didn't want to go to the funeral but, he knew she had to. Lena was sad and something about her had changed. He was worried and was going to try and do what he can to help. There were a lot of dark casters at the funeral. Being that it was being held at night it was to be expected.

There was a strange guy on a motorcycle standing be a tree after a lot of the people left. Something about him made Ethan feel funny.  A few days past and Lena wasn't acting nothing like herself. He didn't know what to do. He tried everything and it wasn't working. Then she started to hang out with that dark caster the rode the motorcycle. She told Ethan that she was leaving and didn't want him to follow her. Ethan knew something was wrong and planned on finding out.

His trip to the library was interesting. Marian was there and some girl that he'd never seen before. She was cute. He asked Marian a few questions but, he knew that Marian couldn't really answer them. He needed some answers so he thought that going down into the tunnels would be the only way he would figure them out.

Ethan's dad came home, Lena is gone and the girl at the library is named Oliva, Liv for short. She was willing to help him out. Link is Ethan's best friend and willing to travel with him. They are going after Lena to find her and bring her back home. But something else isn't quite right. Along the way there are people that Ethan knows that helps him out. He finds out a secret about himself that he doesn't know. Which explains more about what happened on Lena's birthday.

I'll just say this, that you will have to read the book to find out if Ethan finds Lena an find out happens. Its worth reading.

Well, I'm off to start my next book. Remember to read a good book and try a new author. You never know wither its good until you read it.
