*This is a combined review for Heart of a Lion and Thunder Horizon*
While reading Heart of a Lion and Thunder Horizon I kept asking myself "Why did I stop reading fantasy?" I never really missed it untill I stared reading the Dark Sun Dawn saga. But then again I have to be honost Stephen Zimmer has a way of writing where it is extremely difficult to stop reading.
The Good Daughter
by Karin Slaughter

The stunning new novel from the international #1 bestselling author — a searing, spellbinding blend of cold-case thriller and psychological suspense.Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville's notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case that unleashes the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried forever…
Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.
After reading Last Breath I was really looking forward to reading The Good Daughter and luckily I was able to read it right after I finished Last Breath. And The Good Daughter did not dissapoint but I expected nothing less from Karin Slaughter.

I've had the privilage to interview Stephen Zimmer for his Rayden Valkyrie Blog Tour, where he tell us about the Dark Sun Dawn Saga and he shares the trailer for his Rayden Valkyrie Saga of a Lionheart TV Pilot.
I am a storyteller who loves to write and also loves visual storytelling such as movies and television series. I currently have 12 books in print and am working on a new TV Pilot that is centered around my Rayden Valkyrie character I am the founder of the Imaginarium Convention, which is an event all about creative writing. I enjoy lots of activities and things, including martial arts, music, movies, bourbon, traveling, guitar, and spending time with our family cat, Dubious!
The Dark Sun Dawn books contain one of Rayden Valkyrie's most challenging adventures. It all begins with Rayden seeking to return to her adopted homelands after completing a very grueling task in lands far to the south of the Kartajen Empire. The journey takes some sharp twists and turns along the way, but soon she finds herself confronting a fast-rising power, the Teveren Empire, whose shadow is growing across many lands and kingdoms. The story reveals more and more about what is behind the growing threat, including supernatural elements and sorcery. Readers follow along with Rayden as she discovers the nature of these adversaries and seeks ways to overcome them. The story is told over the course of three books, comprising the Dark Sun Dawn Trilogy!

Rob Ramer was the perfect husband until he committed the ultimate family faux pas — he shot his sister-in-law to death. Believing himself under attack by an intruder in his home, he fired back. But when evidence is discovered that Rob’s wife, Brooke, was plotting his murder, Brooke is charged with conspiracy in her sister’s death. Geneva, a third sister, is desperate for answers and seeks the help of her friend, San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti. Geneva’s lost one sister and now it seems she’ll lose the other. Was this a murder plot or just a terrible accident? Julia vows to find the answer in the stars.
After reading the Madness of Mercury I knew I wanted to read the next book with Julia Bonetti. And it did not dissapoint at all. I really enjoyed All Signs Point to Murder.
