Samatha “Sam” Harris lives near Baltimore, Maryland with her husband David and daughter Ava. Born in Florida, she migrated north which most people agree was a little backwards. She has been an artist all of her life, a Tattoo Artist for more than ten years, and a storyteller since she was a kid.

Sam has a slightly unhealthy love for Frank Sinatra, classic movies, and Jazz and Blues music, but her first love will always be reading. From Romance, to Thrillers, to Historical Fiction and everything in between, she loves to become a part of the story. As a writer she tells the stories that she would want toread.

This is the story of a spider called Eric and the very big adventures he has.

My Review

5 Stars

Eric is a big spider that is going to have some big adventures. He steals some socks and a bike and goes on the run. He does get caught by the police but that is not going to stop him. He also goes camping on a very wet day and has a birthday party with some great characters.

This is a cute collection of stories for a child that will show how spiders may be scary but they are pretty good too. There are wonderful illustrations to really add to the story. I think my favorite is the picture of Eric riding the bike.

This is a great story that will appeal to kids of all ages. If you have a little one that is afraid of spiders I think this book would be a great read for them. It shows how a spider sure can have some fun.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

The Dead Travel Fast (Ancient Gramarye – 2) by Nick Brown

When archaeologist Steve Watkins fled to the Greek island of Samos to escape the horror he’d unearthed at Skendleby, he’d hoped to have found refuge. But the ancient terror that had spawned at Skendleby was waiting for him. Across the island an enigmatic and haunted detective, Theodrakis, is baffled by a series of brutal ritual killings infecting the island like a plague and spreading violent anarchy. Now the fates of these two men will be drawn together; against a backdrop of mayhem, fire and violence they begin to uncover the horrifying cosmic significance of this most ancient evil.

About the Author

Nick Brown has an extensive background teaching and writing in the field of archaeology and ancient history and has taught and studied at Leeds and Manchester universities.

Brown later taught at a number of Manchester schools, where he experienced first hand the racial tensions plaguing the area. At one of the schools a pupil was stabbed to death in the playground, an event which Brown has described as ‘life changing’. He moved to Oldham to work for the council, advising schools and planning a reconstruction of a Romano-British Villa with Greater Manchester Archaeological Unit.

Soon after arriving, he was asked to take over the headship of an Oldham school where a pupil had been killed in a racially-charged shooting. Brown later became Principal of a new Sixth Form college, set up by Oldham council in an attempt to instill a multi- racial ethos. In his 20 years there the college became one of the most successful in the country, and Brown has been awarded an OBE for his work.

Since leaving the school, he now devotes his time to writing. This is Brown’s debut novel and is the first in a series set in the fascinating and tumultuous 5th Century BC Athens.

My Review

4 Stars

Archaeologist Steve Watkins has moved to the island of Samos. He is trying to put the events that happened to him at Skendleby. But when a series of ritualistic murders start happening around him it is clear that the evil has followed him. Detective Theodrakis has his hands full with these murders. Both men will be working together to figure out what is going on and try to stop it.

This was an interesting read. I loved the location and could tell that Steve was just trying to recover from what he went through a year earlier. But of course when you awaken true evil it’s not like you can just walk away from it. I have to say that I really liked Theodrakis. He has a past and thing happening in the present without all the supernatural killings to just make his life that more troubled.

I have not read the first book, Skendleby and I think that might have added to my liking this book. I did enjoy this book and will go back to catch up on what I missed. I also want to see where the story goes in the next book.
