What reviewers have to say about Einstein’s Compass:

“Under Grace Blair and Laren Bright’s hands, Einstein’s Compass is more than just another time travel story, but one of soul searching, enlightenment, and classic struggles between good and evil. During this journey, young Albert embraces the threat of death and world-changing perspectives. Indeed, Albert will change the world, one day. But the roots of his knowledge and endeavors take a different turn in a riveting fantasy about soul-searching and growth which will keep young adult readers engrossed to the end.” ~Midwest Book Reviews Diane Donovan, Senior Editor

“I was impressed with how the authors managed to incorporate the known information on the lost continent of Atlantis, Light Workers, souls, reincarnation, time travel and the early years of Albert Einstein before he became famous, into a mesmerizing work of fiction readers will have difficulty putting down.”Doug Simpson, Author of “We Lived In Atlantis”

“I recommend Einstein’s Compass as historical fan-fiction, the magic, and fantasy built on top of the factual world of Albert Einstein. Although it is intended for a Young Adult audience, it is well suited to adults who enjoy fictionalized history with a wide-ranging epic theme and a Harry Potter-esque plot. Jacqui Murray, Author of Ask a Tech Teacher

“The extended combination of history and magic was an unexpected mix, which pulled me in from the beginning, captivating me all the way to the surprising ending. This novel takes you from the early childhood of Einstein, which includes an illness that may have contributed to his perspective on the world around him as he grew older. It is refreshing to find a combination of history, religion, and folklore told in such a compelling manner with just the right amounts of magic and suspense. Rox Burkey, Author of The Enigma Series

Albert Einstein was fascinated with time and space from an early age, but what inspired him? Receiving a magical compass from his father, Albert sets off on a journey to learn more than math and science offered to understand even time and space. Unfortunately, an ancient evil from the days of Atlantis also seeks his compass and will stop at nothing to have it. Can the Agents of Light protect Albert from the shape-shifting dragon and help him achieve his destiny, or will he fall prey to the dangers of his day and lose the powerful device before he completes his mission? The combination of science with the supernatural is a winner, and the good vs. evil fight is interesting, making this a good book for YA readers. InD’Tale Magazine, Sarah E Bradley

Einstein’s Compass exhibits a solid writing style and dutifully hits Einstein’s developmental and educational milestones while weaving in an imaginative backstory and unique antagonists’ perspectives. The what if  of Albert Einstein developing his landmark scientific theories through the aid of spiritualism and time travel, all the while battling an immortal dragon-person from Atlantis, is certainly a unique concept. Booklife Magazine a division of Publisher’s Weekly

About The Author

J.K. Franko was born and raised in Texas at a time when what he really wanted to do in life – writing and film – were not considered legitimate career paths.

His Cuban-American parents agreed there were only three acceptable options for a male child: doctor, lawyer, and architect. After a disastrous first year of college pre-Med, he ended up getting a BA in philosophy (not acceptable), then he went to law school (salvaging the family name).

Some of his papers were on the law journal, cited by courts and he even appeared on the National Law Journal’s “Worth Reading” list – for law – which is the equivalent to a top review in the New York Times.

While moving up the big law firm ladder, Franko also published a book (non-fiction) and a number of articles.

The, after ten years, he decided that law and family life weren’t compatible. And thus decided to go back to school where he got an MBA, and later a PhD, crossing the line from well-educated to over-educated around the turn of the century.

He left law for corporate America, with long stints in Europe and Asia and it was his wife who pushed him to write novels.

And so, after thousands of hours writing, and seven or eight literary miscarriages over the course of eighteen years, he completed his first book, finally launching his career as a writer of fiction.

Ironically, though he started writing fiction before any of his three children were born, they were all old enough to see and remember their father’s first book launch.

J.K. Franko now lives with his wife and children in Florida with their four dogs and one cat.

The Good Neighbors: Review

Book Blurb

Good neighbors invite you over for dinner, bring you baked goods to welcome you to the neighborhood, and wave hello at the mailbox.

Good neighbors do not destroy your life.

When Bryant and Harper Page move to Lancaster Mills, their first encounter with their new neighbors—Jason and Tori Fuller: beautiful, strange, and terrifying—is anything but a warm welcome. Despite their hesitations, the Pages are intrigued by the people they now share a street with. As their curiosity gets the best of them, they discover that there’s much more to the Fullers than meets the eye. Their new neighbors have secrets, that much is obvious, but just how dangerous could they be?

With two haunting shadows lingering over their house and lives, the Pages’ relationship is tested in every way. What exactly makes a good neighbor? And what makes a good neighbor bad?

Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Good Neighbors“The Good Neighbors is exactly the kind of book I look for. It’s intense nail biting suspense, with lots of twists.”-Danielle, Amazon Reviewer
“The Supreme Queen of Twists, Kiersten Modglin, has done it again!”-Mandy, Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog 
“What a privilege it is to read Kiersten’s words. With her newest novel, The Good Neighbors, she once again proves herself as an author to one-click without hesitation. The plot twists kept me on the edge of my seat…I needed answers, and when they were exposed, I was not left disappointed.”-Kate Blanchard, Author of Dear Anna
“…a dramatic, eerie twist.”-J. Lynn Lombard, Author of The Racing Dirty Series 
“The twists are phenomenal. The pacing and flow of the story are perfect. This is a true must read!”-AnnaMarie Gardner, Author of Young Fae
“Addictive, unsettling, intriguing, shocking, and just as the book promises about the neighbors, there is much more to this well-written story than first meets the eye.”-Emerald O’Brien, Author of The Knox and Sheppard Mysteries
“The twists and turns Modglin is best known for will have you on the edge of your seat in this unputdownable story about neighbors and the secrets they keep. The Good Neighbors made me look outside my window, stare at the houses of each of my neighbors, and question what I truly know about them.”-Rachel Renee, Author of The Savannah PD Series
“Kiersten Modglin once again delivers a twist that I didn’t see coming. I’m not sure how she does this so consistently and so well. Her books are unlike any suspense I’ve ever read, but in the best way possible. There is nothing cliche or phoned in about the way she tells a mystery or suspense story. Her suspense is more intellectual than action packed and I’ve yet to crack the story before she has to tell me it at the end.”-Leanne Davis, Author of The River’s End and Sisters Series

My Thoughts

Fist of I have to say WOW! Kiersten has done it again. I was completely blown away with this story. Harper and Bryant moved in to Lancaster Mills for a new beginning as newly weds. Bryant had been offer a teacher position there and they bought their first home together. Few days later they meet the Fullers. Tori & Jason where like no one they had ever meet. They were perfect and simply beautiful. They seem like the perfect couple but they had secrets. Secrets that might destroyed everything for them. Harper & Bryant discovered the Fuller’s secret making their life to be a risk. But were they really at risk at all? Where the Fuller’s try to hurt them? Or was some one else looking to dispose of them seem they were so close to the truth?

This book was gripping. twisted and addictive. I just couldn’t put it down! It made me look at my neighbors differently. Wondering what they could be hiding. Being a loner might be better after all. This book let me wanting more. I want to know what else is in store for this two family, This author is amazing and I see a great future for her. I cant wait to read more from this author! 🙂

The Boy In The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne: Review!

Blurb

Berlin, 1942: When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move to a new house far, far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people in the distance.

But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different from his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

About the Author

John Boyne was born in Ireland in 1971 and is the author of seven novels for adults and three for children. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas won two Irish Book Awards, was shortlisted for the British Book Award, reached no.1 on the New York Times Bestseller List and was made into an award-winning Miramax feature film. His novels are published in over 45 languages. He lives in Dublin.

My Thought

Okay let me start by saying that I am a huge historical fiction, is one of my favorite genre. Especially when it has to do with WWII, something about that era that fascinates me. I have read books that I love such as Diary of Anne Frank, The Book Thief, Between shades of gray and the Kommandant’s girl. This book how ever wasn’t much of my liking. The story was powerful but I found my self mostly angry with the adults.

Lieutenant Kotler was the absolute worst of them all. He was nineteen years old and was thought he was above everything and anything. Even being rude to Bruno who was the commandants kid. I wanted to go inside the book and punch him. There was so much sadness in the book, my heart ache for Bruno and Shmuel who were both nine years of age and were so innocent to the war in the outside world. Bruno was German and Shmuel was Jewish then in their young , innocent mind this wasn’t an obstacle for them to becoming friends. In fact they had become the best of friends.

The book how ever didn’t have the same effect on me as the movie did. Seen exactly what happen completely broke me. My heart felt heavy as if some one was squeezing it and I cried like a baby when it was done. The book although still powerful didn’t made me cry. This is one of the few occasions where I believe the movie was better than the book.

I rate this book 📚📚📚📚 bookstack
