My Review

They’re so cute and cuddly. No one really thinks of Pandas as bears. They are every bit as dangerous as the other kinds. Long, lethal claws. Huge teeth. And a nasty disposition when riled. So what happens when an experiment triggers a latent gene, transforming one into something primal?

It took me a bit to get to know the character’s and what their roles were. I hadn’t read the first book. Once I get my facts straight the fun began. Answering a call for their special skills, a small team arrives at a zoo to round up some escaped pandas. That’s easily accomplished. But…it’s discovered another has escaped and it ain’t no ordinary panda. It’s regressed back to it’s ancestors. A leaner, meaner, hungry bear.

The team is diverse and strange. They don’t get along but function well in the field. Guess they know to work together or die. The panda is scary. It has this neat trick that makes it especially dangerous.  Figures, doesn’t it? When will people learn to leave well enough alone.

There’s lots of fun and action and intriguing characters I want to learn more about. And I’m always looking for more killer critters. I read this straight through as it’s not that long and now I want to see what else this author has to offer. I got a peek into something called Office Zombies and it should be another fun one.

3 Stars



What’s black and white, and red all over?
Pearson Granger wanted a quiet steak for breakfast, not an impossible plateful of peril. But when tech goes rogue, duty calls.

The Aftermath, Granger’s elite team of mercenaries, is sent to a breakout at Edinburgh Zoo. It looks like an easy job. Then the nightmare begins.

To survive, they must fight suspicious scientists, international intrigue—and a very angry panda with a monstrous appetite.

With his friend in mortal danger, and tensions between Mad and Delilah threatening to tear The Aftermath apart, Granger must find the strength to face the red lab’s nightmare creation alone. Survival seems impossible.

Featuring a guest appearance by Kate Marx, the Queen of Cryptozoology.

What monster lurks under Edinburgh’s ancient streets? Just how well do Pearson and Kate know one another? Can the beast be stopped? Will Mad’s appetite destroy them all? Get Second Hunger and find out today.

Second Hunger continues The Aftermath Adventures, a fun, action-packed series of compact, punchy page-turning technothrillers.

Every story stands alone. You can read them in any order. Together, they are even better.

If you like believable characters, great locations, astonishing gadgets and page-turning plots then you’ll love spending time with Pearson Granger and his team. If you like NCIS, Michael Crichton, or The A-Team, you’ll be hooked by The Aftermath Adventures.

This book is Fast Fiction: a full-fat story in bite-sized parts. With Fast Fiction, you always have time to read. Fast-paced and hard to put down, you can tear through an episode in one sitting or savour the fun, mouthful by mouthful. Whether you want to binge out, or treat yourself to just one more, there’s a great selection, with more episodes always on the way. It’s like reading your new favourite TV show.

Without further ado I give you Witches and Witches II by Kathryn Meyer Griffith



by Kathryn Meyer Griffith


Genre: Horror / Paranormal / Fantasy

My Review

Nothing like some witches to keep me reading into the wee hours. I should add that I’ve read many of Kathryn’s books and that always happens.

The age old battle of good vs. evil is portrayed by white magic and black magic.

Some things never change. Even for witches in present times. Amanda is still grieving over the loss of her beloved and just wants to get through each day. Living in a small town, her unusual ways raise suspicion and she’s the likely culprit for the town folks when the murders begin.

It’s Salem all over again as the town turns on Amanda, calling her a witch, shunning her, and casting the first stone.

As Amanda begins her own investigation, she stumbles into a dark and deadly plot involving dark magic and demons. Now, she’s desperate to reveal the truth before she’s outed by a posse and hung until dead.

A fun thing was the talking familiars. They came in all shapes and sizes and had very vocal opinions. It was also fun to see witches trying to hide what they were from the modern world. They all had different levels of power and couldn’t just twitch their noses and appear somewhere. Even witches had to use cell phones and airplanes.

I thought it worked really well for the story when the author took her story back in time to the witch trials. The contrasts and similarities of life as a witch was intriguing and kept the story moving quickly.

I thought I knew how this would end and worried that it wouldn’t work. That it would be awkward and rushed. Not so. I give kudos to Kathryn for surprising me and pulling it off.

Look for my review later this month.

It’s a feature in my 31 Days Of Thrills And Chills and I can’t wait to share with you!



 Witches plus bonus Witches II: Apocalypse

By Kathryn Meyer Griffith

kathryn WitchesII_Apocalypse_Bonus_Kindle

Blurb of double book:

Two Witch books in one:


There are witches in the world…some are good and some of them are downright evil.

Amanda Givens is careful how she uses her benevolent powers. She doesn’t want the people of Canaan, Connecticut to know they have a witch among them…even a good white witch. For years, she’s lived quietly in a remote cabin with Amadeus, her quirky feline familiar. At first with her husband, Jake, the love of her life, until a car accident; but now alone after his death. But when she’s wrongly blamed for a rash of ritualistic murders committed by a satanic cult, she knows she can no longer hide. She’s the one the cult is after and she is the only one who can stop them and prove her innocence. Yet as punishment for fighting and destroying the cult, she’s drawn back in time by the ghost of the dark witch, Rachel Coxe, who was drowned for practicing black magic in the 17th century. Now, as Amanda tries to rehabilitate Rachel’s reputation in an effort to save lives, as well as her own, and falls in love all over again with Joshua, her reincarnated dead husband from the future, she has to rely on a sister’s love and magical knowledge, and a powerful sect of witches named the Guardians, to help her get home safely. ***

Witches II: Apocalypse:

The long-awaited sequel to my 1993 best-selling paperback novel Witches is finally HERE! Yes, witches exist…the good and the bad ones…and one day the two ancient adversaries of good and evil will join the fight for control of the world. Amanda has been told her ten year old witch-child, Lizzy, is fated to someday become one of the planet’s most powerful witches. If she lives. If the world survives. Because the world is being threatened by an anti-Christ called Reuben who is prophesied to bring the end of the world by destroying everyone and everything good–including the white witches and warlocks of the world–unless he can be stopped. The Guardians, a secret society of those white wiccans who protect others of their kind and the world from great evil, along with the powerful good witch, Amanda Givens, and her gifted daughter, Lizzy, must battle Reuben and his demonic followers. They must somehow change the outcome of the prophesied end times, aid a possible child of God, help the earth’s people to resist the black witches, demons and the soulless, which the times have brought forth and who are trying to bring hell to earth. Good and evil will be brought together for the final battles. Will Amanda, Lizzy, and the Guardians defeat evil or will it defeat them as they fight with all their strength and powers to save the people, the lives and the world they love. Who will win?***



About the Author
Kathryn Meyer Griffith

About Kathryn Meyer Griffithlook for all my NEW covers! on my older books.

Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-four years ago now, and have had twenty-three (ten romantic horror, two horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance, two thrillers, and four murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from Zebra Books, Leisure Books, Avalon Books, The Wild Rose Press, Damnation Books/Eternal Press; and I’ve self-published my last ten novels with Amazon Kindle Direct and my Dinosaur Lake novels and Spookie Town Mysteries (Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away and Ghosts Beneath Us) are my best-sellers.

I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-seven years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois, which is right across the JB Bridge from St. Louis, Mo. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk/classic rock singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.
