There are some AMAZING deals in ebooks going on right now and I decided I need to share with all of you. Christmas shopping always ends up being expensive for me, I have tendency to get myself gifts at the same time but with these deals I don’t feel guilty at all. Just remember that these deals won’t last forever so get them while they are still available. Let me know if I need to add any other deals to this list. Happy Reading!
“I do not believe that I am made of the stuff which constitutes heroes, because, in all of the hundreds of instances that my voluntary acts have placed me face to face with death, I cannot recall a single one where any alternative step to that I took occurred to me until many hours later. My mind is evidently so constituted that I am subconsciously forced into the path of duty without recourse to tiresome mental processes. however that may be, I have never regretted that cowardice is not optional with me. ”
“Fear is a relative term and so I can only measure my feelings at that time by what I had experienced in previous positions of danger and by those that I have passed through since; but I can say without shame that if the sensations I endured during the next few minutes were fear, then may God help the coward, for cowardice is of a surety its own punishment. ”
“Few western wonders are more inspiring than the beauties of an Arizona moonlit landscape; the silvered mountains in the distance, the strange lights and shadows upon hog back and arroyo, and the grotesque details of the stiff, yet beautiful cacti form a picture at once enchanting and inspiring; as though one were catching for the first time a glimpse of some dead and forgotten world, so different is it from the aspect of any other spot upon our earth. ”
–A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

When Dick Moonlight wakes up in the emergency room, he finds out he had been dead. In Moonlight Rises by Vincent Zandri, Dick remembers watching the love of his life crying over him, and then being pulled into an embrace by another man. Dick isn’t sure if he’s dreaming it, or if she is cheating on him over his body. Dick remembers being beaten by men in President Obama masks and being told to stay away from his newest client. But Dick is determined to find out who is trying to kill him, and what this client has that is so important.
I really struggled with this book. I didn’t like that Dick Moonlight blacks out periodically through the book and we don’t know what had happened. I did not finish this book. I couldn’t get into it, and didn’t really care for the use of the f* word, or of the constant references to Dick’s erections from his head injury. This book was a little vulgar for my tastes. I feel bad at not finishing it, but I really couldn’t recommend this book to anyone with me personally not liking it. I did enjoy Vincent’s sense of humor and his writing was really good. I hope that you can read it and prove my review wrong. I don’t like to write bad reviews because I know that authors put a lot of work into their writing.
Moonlight Rises is the second book in the Dick Moonlight series (I was unable to determine the reading order of the books, sorry!)
