Review Guidelines

***Do to the extreme amount of requests I am no longer taking review requests at this time***

 

Review Scale

Because I use Goodreads.comto list my reviews, I use their star rating system. The scale is from one star to five stars but I thought I would describe a bit how I view those stars.

One star: Reserved for books I could not finish or skipped over a great deal.

Two stars: Finished the book painstakingly but did not like it and would never read it again.

Three stars: The book was alright, it had its good parts.

Four stars: Enjoyed the book as a whole and would recommend it to someone else and would probably read it again.

Five stars: Absolutely LOVED the book, would recommend it to others, would read it again and it was most likely added to my favorites shelf and keep.


 


Review Policy

I am usually more than willing to accept books from authors or publishers for review!

I prefer ebooks in epub, mobi, and pdf. You can ask about other formats and I will see. I will accept paperback and/or hardbacks as well though so please don't hesitate to inquire about a review!   All of my reviews are on my own honest opinion and I will not right a 'nice' review just because I am asked to.


Favorite and Preferred Genres

· Romance - mostly historical rather than contemporary
· Young Adult
· Historical Fiction
· Fantasy/paranormal
· Mythology and fairytale retellings (also Shakspearian retellings)

· History - European       
·
Issues: Titanic, Jack the Ripper, holocaust, American Civil war, unexplained events or strange things

Note: My reviews are not limited to those genres yet I do prefer them.

Also, my Netgalley books take priority.

ARCS always come first!

    Synopsis

    The book is a Historical Novel dealing with the first days of Christianity. Peter and Paul is a natural sequel to my bestselling historical novel Yeshûa—Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus. The two journeys, which Peter and Paul took, illustrate the contrasting views of the essence of the scriptural teaching, each necessary for the fulfillment of its intent. The apostles were left alone, scared, persecuted, not knowing what to do. Gradually light came upon them and a long, arduous struggle began to spread the Good News. While the book tries to be historically accurate, it often reads like an adventure story, sometimes like a thriller, at times a murder tragedy, until ultimately light and love prevail.

    Essentially, the paths that Peter and Paul had taken affirm choices made by “the many (that are called), and the few (that are chosen)”. This diametric division exists to this day.
