 I know some parents might be seeking an excellent book for their children. Are you seeking a way to identify Gods story to little one? Well this book, God Gave Us the Bible as a few favorite stories. It a good one and well done.

The stories are brief but mean full. They may allow the children asking some questions about the bible or the meaning of the story. This book retains characters that display this though animals with a Mama bear and a few forest animal kids. I like this concept and could understand it. The stories are not in depth of the Bible, but it gives the children or animal kids in the book to ask about a b meaning of a word or prase. Mama explains them try to provide them an answer that they would understand.

The pictures are effectively put together. I enjoy looking them, and they did tell the story. I was able to read this book in one sitting. I had to take a break when I was going an appointment. I finished the same day as I started it. If I did not have to go any where and launched this at home, I would completed reading it in one sitting.

This book does teach you some lessons and the story of Christ though the eyes of little cubs. Parents should think to put this on their bookshelves for their children or grandchildren. Good for children of juvenile readers.

Excerpt:

Seth wrapped his powers about himself and flew at the Changeling with all the speed he possessed. A fist struck his torso, knocking the breath out of him. Such speed! The Lion rolled to the edge of the battlement, smacking painfully against the barrier overlooking the Legion courtyard. Stunned, he didn’t have time to block the sharp stab to his right shoulder.

“How disappointed your Jalora must be right now.” The Changeling swung its blade playfully in the space between them. “Your career as bearer will be a short one.”

Primal fear and hatred rose within Seth’s heart as he stared into the mystical being’s black orbs. The Lion’s Roar rumbled low in his throat. Gasping in short, panicked breaths, Seth desperately tried to concentrate. The Lion Spirit laughed at his struggles. Its vast power chipped away at the thin layer of control Seth still held.

Let me out, Bearer. The Lion Spirit growled. I grow hungry for its flesh.

“No! You’ll destroy more than the Changeling.”

You will soon learn, boy, I cannot be contained.

Then the beast was loose. Bursting onto the battlements in a massive wave of destruction, it struck the Changeling with a bone-crushing surge of energy. Laughter boomed in Seth’s ears as the Lion Spirit fed. Slashing and chomping, the invisible beast delighted in the frenzy. Its destructive force, now free upon the outpost, didn’t stop at the enemy’s ruined body. Thundering along the battlements, the Lion’s Roar shook the foundations.

Seth, a stranger in his own body, sat helpless on the battlements while the Lion Spirit devoured everything in its path. Flesh. Stone. Metal. It ate indiscriminately. Seth scratched his fingertips along the rock, trying to regain control. The Lion Spirit, however, wasn’t ready quite yet to return to the confines of the ring. Seth prayed an outpost would still be standing when at last its hunger had been sated.

Book Review: The Heart of A King

Book Title: The Heart of A King
Author: Jill Eileen Smith
Genres: Biblical Fiction, Fiction, Historical Fiction, Christian Fiction,
Series: The Loves of King Solomon (#1-4)
Publisher: Fleming H. Revell Company
Publisher Date: April 30, 2019 (430 Pages, Paperback)
King Solomon was wealthy and wise beyond measure. He could--and did--have anything he wanted, including many women from many lands. But for all his wisdom, did he or the women in his life ever find what they searched for all of their lives?

In this engrossing novel, you'll find yourself whisked away to ancient Israel, where you'll meet Solomon and four of the women he loved: Naamah the desert princess, Abishag the shepherdess, Siti the daughter of a pharaoh, and Nicaula the queen of Sheba. As you experience the world of Solomon through his eyes and the eyes of these women, you'll ask yourself the ultimate question: Did Solomon's wisdom ultimately benefit him and those he loved . . . or did it betray them?

The heart of a king is well written. It seem to be about the life of King Solomon. We see it though the view of the his wives. This is what I got though reading the book. It seem like book that tell the story of the king.

It starts out with him with his father being King of Israel and his son a prince. We see how he becomes King and what he wants. Do his wives get what they want? I believe this is a story about King Solomon and his god. We are brought back to ancient Israel.

We also see him struggle with himself and his god. He seem to questions if he is doing what is right by his god. His he not following God commands or comments?

If you are into reading the bible, but in a simpler way. This book is good for you. This is what it kind gave me as I was reading it. I enjoyed it, do not get me wrong. It seem better then reading the bible it self to get the history or story of King Solomon. Wish is best for me to understand.

I am not into reading the Bible for say but learning about ancient Israel is something different and the lives of King Solomon and his wives. This book did have look up a bit about King Solomon on google. Which is interesting say the least.

Strange Blood: 71 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies by Vanessa Morgan (ebook)

This is an overview of the most offbeat and underrated vampire movies spanning nine decades and 23 countries.

Strange Blood encompasses well-known hits as well as obscurities that differ from your standard fang fare by turning genre conventions on their head. Here, vampires come in the form of cars, pets, aliens, mechanical objects, gorillas, or floating heads. And when they do look like a demonic monster or an aristocratic Count or Countess, they break the mold in terms of imagery, style, or setting. Leading horror writers, filmmakers, actors, distributors, academics, and programmers present their favorite vampire films through in-depth essays, providing background information, analysis, and trivia regarding the various films. Some of these stories are hilarious, some are terrifying, some are touching, and some are just plain weird. Not all of these movies line up with the critical consensus, yet they have one thing in common: they are unlike anything you've ever seen in the world of vampires. Just when you thought that the children of the night had become a tired trope, it turns out they have quite a diverse inventory after all.

Corporate Wolf by Stuart R. West (ebook)

It was supposed to be a corporate retreat and a series of morale-boosting exercises. It was a weekend Shawn Biltmore nearly didn't survive.

There was something else playing in the woods that night, something other than a bunch of corporate drones with paintball guns.

And it had chosen Shawn as its new chew toy.

…rip 'em to shreds.

The local authorities chalked it up to a bear attack.

So did the doctors.

Shawn knew the truth, however, as much as he wanted to deny it.

But when one of his coworkers is viciously killed, Shawn must face the truth…

He's a killer who needs to be put down.

Or is he?

Bill the Vampire by Rick Gualtieri (ebook)

There are reasons we fear the night. He’s NOT one of them.

Bill Ryder was a dateless geek, but then he met a girl to die for. So he did. Sadly, that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke as a vampire but, fangs or not, he was still at the bottom of the food chain.

Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier, and a hell of a lot cooler than he is ... and they all want to kick his ass.

Bill isn't exactly average, though. A vamp like him hasn't been seen in centuries. He's got a few tricks up his sleeve, unlikely allies, and an attitude that makes him too damned obnoxious to quit.

Join him in this hilarious tale of bloodthirsty monsters and the unlikely hero who's not afraid to flip them all off, even if it gets him killed – again.

Purchase: Bill the Vampire

Suckers by Anne Billson (ebook)

And some of us saw it in our nightmares…

But now she's back, and this time she's building a bloodsucking empire...

Peripheral Visions: The Complete Ghost Stories 1988-2015 by Robert Hood (ebook)

Peripheral Visions is a unique reference collection that includes all of Robert Hood's 44 ghost stories to date, three of them especially written for this volume. These memorable tales display Hood's uncanny ability to make the fantastic real, to embrace weirdness and create human characters whose lives – both inner and outer – haunted by mortality, are laid bare and revealed to be our own worst nightmares. Ranging from melancholy reflection on life and death, through disquieting tales of dark humour and vengeance, to chilling visions of ghostly apocalypse. Hood's stories are sure to draw you into a terrifying world that in the end is revealed to be irrefutably our own. Though many of these stories draw on the traditions of the past, they are far from traditional in approach.

As you turn each page remember this: not everything here is as it seems. There's always something more, barely glimpsed, out there on the periphery.

Each section has an evocative, disturbing illustration by noted artist, Nick Stathopoulos.
