A challenging read from the mystical realm!



Author Elle Klass takes a bold step into the mystical and paranormal genre with her Eye of the Storm. The title itself is open-ended, as readers will discover, and Klass leaves readers with the notion that the storm is not over, its effects spreading widely into a world of shadows and unknowns.

Klass apparently has a streak of playful wit as she sets up her story for her readers. Be sure you read every word of her book carefully or you’ll miss it. I did, until a fellow reader explained. Klass plants her challenge, and buries deep other nuances for the reader to figure out. After all, you’ve now entered Elle Klass’s mystical world.

Fans of the paranormal genre will welcome Eye of the Storm to their reading shelf. It’s a fresh take on the off-center, the off-kilter, and the unexplainable world without the clear-cut boundaries of reality.

But Klass is not content to deliver a neat little cookie-cutter story for her readers. Instead the ending is the beginning of yet another mystery with an edge as sharp and penetrating as a precision scalpel, and yet as murky as the mystical twilight zone.

Writing about things or an “existence” that reeks with the unexplainable must be difficult and a challenge for a writer. I tip my eReader to Klass’s debut entry into the paranormal genre and give her Five Stars for Eye of the Storm.

A fast-moving drama of life on the run!



Street-wise and on the run since the age of 12, trying to remain in stealth mode as she crisscrosses continents, she finds herself in yet another strange environment, but through the help of a “street” friend, she’s “legal” and lethal, when needed. Current name is subject to change, due to unforeseen events. That’s the story world author Elle Klass thrusts her readers into.

The author gives readers a fast-moving story of life on the run with her Baby Girl series. Klass provides twists and turns in her plot, and doesn’t hesitate to load her story with conflict and challenges for her mysterious protagonist.

As a reader, I found it interesting how Klass puts her main character through a variety of roles that most people couldn’t fathom, and yet there is that consistent thread of believability woven throughout.

In many respects, Klass’s Baby Girl series reminds me of the long-lasting popular TV series, The Fugitive, by Roy Huggins. Baby Girl is a suspense-filled depiction of the “hunted on the hunt.” And Baby Girl is current day, real time, back to back, clock-ticking excitement, and made significantly different with Klass’s female protagonist. Baby Girl is a read that will whet your appetite for more of the series.

Baby Girl is a series worthy of Five Gold Stars shining in the light of day. But as readers, we’ll have to wait for Klass to bring from the shadows of the street the conclusion. Author’s choice; we’re waiting Ms. Klass!

Breathless romance suspense!




Reading a Robyn Roze novel is like being perched on top of the most world-famous roller coaster. You look around; there is no last minute exit door, no parachute, no safety net, no escape. For a moment the coaster experiences the calm of weightlessness with a teasing rollout until gravity beckons, and then all hell breaks loose!



The gravity of Roze’s characters in Find Her Free Her, the final book in the Keeper Trilogy, takes hold and there’s no turning back. As a reader you can’t reverse the emotional suspense unwinding among Olivia, Jake, and Nick, as their worlds collide in a mind-bending frenzy of inverted emotions and demanding desires.

Roze has no mercy on her characters, confronting them with the impossible, daring them to search for their own resolution and redemption in the spiraling twists and turns toward an unknown destiny until the last page is turned. Of course the reader is left as breathless as her characters, and yet wanting to take another ride on the rollicking roller coaster of Robyn Roze.

I never give away the details of a story in my reviews; I leave that delight for other readers to discover, and enjoy as Roze’s characters come to life and plot their adventure page after page. But you’ll discover her characters are faced with conflicting choices that add intense fuel to the already over-heated story.

Her Five-Star Keeper Trilogy is packed with 500-plus pages of romance, suspense, and thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat, and your e-reader full of passion-driven heat.

Ms. Roze, your readers are standing in line, waiting for your next exciting novel. Keep the ink flowing!
