The final champion stirs and reaches out to any who can hear her voice. Yet all who heed her call will disappear into the misty fugue.
Awakening their new ally is only the beginning as Luke, Nyx, and their friends head south to the desert city of Bor’daruk. Hunting for another temple once used to seal Baron Kernaghan, they are unaware that the game of destiny has changed. Out for blood and pain, Stephen is determined to make Luke wish he’d never set out to become a hero.
By the time the sun sets on Bor’daruk, minds will be shattered and the champions’ lives will be changed forever.

About the Author:
Charles Yallowitz was born and raised on Long Island, NY, but he has spent most of his life wandering his own imagination in a blissful haze. Occasionally, he would return from this world for the necessities such as food, showers, and Saturday morning cartoons. One day he returned from his imagination and decided he would share his stories with the world. After his wife decided that she was tired of hearing the same stories repeatedly, she convinced him that it would make more sense to follow his dream of being a fantasy author. So, locked within the house under orders to shut up and get to work, Charles brings you Legends of Windemere. He looks forward to sharing all of his stories with you and his wife is happy he finally has someone else to play with.

I received another stack of books from the lady in And Then There Were Two… and Second Lot
I was down to my last two borrowed books, hoping to start making a dent in the other stack of books i have, ones that i own. However it looks like i will again have two major stacks of books to read again. Plus the 100+ eBooks i have on my Kobo, the books i am reviewing for authors, and the list of books i don’t actually have a copy of but want to read. Sigh. I think that if i never did anything but read books for the rest of my life, i still wouldn’t be able to read all the books that i want to. I just have to remember to break it up and read both the books from the borrowed stack and the books that i’ve bought otherwise i will find myself in the same situation i was in with Upside Down Inside Out by Monica McInerney.
As before, i researched them all by either reading reviews of each book on Amazon or skimming through if there were no reviews to go by. Three books didn’t make it, Scandals by Penny Jordan, The Defiant Hero by Suzanne Brockmann (both because of sexual content) and The Trophy Taker by Lee Weeks (due to graphic content).
Now to relax and remind myself i love reading, that it is a pleasure and not a chore. It’s not a race to try and get through every book i want to read – it’s an adventure.
I have recently started uploading my reviews onto Amazon and Goodreads because i use both those sites. I had my first review found ‘unhelpful’ on Amazon. You know, “0 of 1 people found the following review helpful”. To be honest, i feel crushed. You might think it’s not a big deal, however i pride myself on being honest and fair. I’m not mean but i will be honest if there were things that i thought weren’t done very well. It certainly has taken me down a step. I think i’m also upset because every other review that was given on the book praised it without any faults. All of those reviews were found ‘helpful’. The one review (mine) that still praises the book and gave it four stars for goodness sake but actually pointed out some things i found could have been done better, gets the ‘unhelpful’ stamp on it. To me an unhelpful review are ones that say it’s bad without a valid reason.
I can’t imagine what a mean review would do to an author. It’s hard when a book isn’t up to scratch but i hope i’m never mean about it.
Anyway i’m feeling sad so if you have any stories to cheer me up i’d love to hear them.

Having learnt from my previous experience, i researched them all by reading many reviews of each book on Amazon. Only one book didn’t make it, Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter.
This is the review that made me decide not to read it. I just wanted to say thank you to them because i know i wouldn’t be able to handle the book’s contents and i am glad they were able to warn me, and others like me. Some of the comments in response to their review weren’t very nice. Just because some people can handle certain things, doesn’t mean everyone else can and i don’t understand why people have to ‘hate’ on other people just because they can’t. I could really get into my opinion on this but i will leave it to another day 😉
