Prequel to the New York Times bestselling and award-winning novel, FORGET TOMORROW!

In a world where all seventeen-year-olds receive a memory from their future selves, Logan Russell’s vision is exactly as he expects — and exactly not. He sees himself achieving his greatest wish of becoming a gold-star swimmer, but strangely enough, the vision also shows him locking eyes with a girl from his past, Callie Stone, and experiencing an overwhelming sense of love and belonging.

Logan’s not sure what the memory means, but soon enough, he learns that his old friend Callie is in trouble. She’s received an atypical memory, one where she commits a crime in the future. According to the law, she must be imprisoned, even though she’s done nothing wrong. Now, Logan must decide if he’ll give up his future as a gold-star swimmer and rescue the literal girl of his dreams. All he’ll have to do is defy Fate.

EXCERPT

He could see her now, and it made him want to fall to his knees and beg for forgiveness. If he had known, he never would’ve let her come.

Her face was pale, so pale, and her eyes stood out like stars in the black sky. But they weren’t lustrous stars full of verve and sparkle; no, her stars were the ones at the end of their lives, the ones in danger of blinking out. Her bones looked fragile, her skin was as thin as parchment paper. Bruises decorated her arm like the latest fashion trends. In a mere week, she looked like this. In a week, she had transformed from a girl to an apparition.

His heart shook, and shame flooded him. I’m sorry, Callie. So sorry. I didn’t know. I thought this was what you wanted. I thought I was doing the right thing.

He hadn’t known—but he should’ve. He was the one with the connection to the Underground. The one with access to information other people didn’t have. He should’ve known, and he should’ve stopped her.

But then, so quickly he barely registered it, she crossed the floor and laid her hand on his chest. He blinked—and then blinked again. What was she doing? They had to get out of here.

“You feel amazing,” she said, oblivious to the urgency. She didn’t sound like herself, either. What was going on? And then she shuffled forward until their shoes were touching. He inhaled sharply and forgot everything else. The touch was nothing. He knew that. Synthetic rubber against synthetic rubber. But now they were connected in two spots. Everything inside him sizzled and popped. If she touched him anywhere else, he might explode.

She seemed determined to try. She trailed her hand across his chest, over his shoulders, up, up, up to his face. And then, she rubbed her fingers back and forth, and the breath shot out of him. He’d never felt anything so sweet, so exquisite. It felt so good it almost hurt. No, it did hurt, but if this were pain, he’d go to Limbo for an eternity.

Her fingers skipped to his lips—and he couldn’t take it anymore. His body broke free from the force that was paralyzing him. He could either grab her and kiss her senseless—or he could put a stop to this and get on with the mission.

He struggled. Oh, how he struggled and damned Fate to the moon and back. Every fiber in his body screamed, Do it! Kiss her now! And if they were anywhere else, if it were any other time, he would’ve.

But he couldn’t forget the bruises on her body. If he didn’t break her out now, he’d never be able to live with himself.

He reached up and covered her hand with his trembling fingers. Fate help him, if he was going to end this moment, he wanted at least one touch of his hand against hers. Something for him to remember during his sleepless nights.

He moved her hand from his lips, and it felt like he was dragging it through wet concrete. “I can’t believe I’m saying this,” he said hoarsely, “but we don’t have much time.”

Her eyes snapped into focus, and everything about her features sharpened. “You’re real?”

December has set in and just when the rural town of Chikata is recovering from one murder, Mei and her new boyfriend, Yasahiro, find their friend, Etsuko, dead in her apartment. Etsuko was sweet and talented, and now everyone suspects her longtime boyfriend killed her. Mei doesn’t believe it, though, and she vows to help solve the crime.

But Mei has more to think about than murder. With the barn gone and their vegetable stores destroyed, she and her mother are down to their last canned goods and no money for heat. Mei’s mom is fortunate to find work, but Mei must fend for herself, get a job, and keep their financial situation a secret from Yasahiro. In pursuit of paying work, she stumbles onto a new witness to the crime, and before long, the dead woman’s secret life unravels before everyone’s eyes. Half-starving and out of her element, Mei is on thin ice, and it’s going to take a whole lot of ingenuity and quick thinking to solve the crime before the killer gets to her as well.

Vampire at Christmas - High Resolution

My Review

I reviewed this a while ago. Since then Anthony has done some revisions. A little more of this and a little more of that and it’s even better and I already gave it 5 Stars before.

The best thing is he gave his vampire a name.

Introducing Talan Gawayn. I love the name. Sounds like something from a long ago era. A proper vampire name.

Now here’s my review for the earlier edition.

The story opens in a tomb. All is calm. All is bright. The little Christmas tree in the corner casts a dazzling display reflecting off of the large coffin.

If you put your ear right up against the coffin, you might hear Jimmy Buffet singing Margaritaville. This handsome vampire loves being a vampire, loves Christmas, and is a fan of the southern artist and has been to many of his concerts. His powers enable him to fly to any location and blend into the shadows to enjoy the the shows.

He’s been waiting 364 days for this night and he grabs his bag of goodies and heads out. But first he must feed.

The beginning is different now. It opens with how Talan became a vampire and it’s a chilling scene.

When he was a new vampire he killed at random. But after many years and witnessing the miracle of Christmas, the warmth and cheer of it, he became more selective. Only killing those who deserved it.

I am amazed at the power of this character with the story being just over 20 pages.

He coldly stalks and consumes his prey, yet he’s also gleeful and excited, like a child. He really gets into the Christmas spirit and spreads hope and joy. Not to his prey, of course, but to those who are in need.

I live in the south and have seen Jimmy Buffet in concert. Been to his restaurant. Met him a few times.  While I was reading this story, I hummed Margaritaville and thought, this vampire would like it here.

Excerpt

Talan Gawayn became a vampire in the 15th century on a cold, starry, full-moon night just after the first big snow of November. He was walking a less traveled path, on his way home from seeing his fiancé, whom he planned to marry the following spring, when three men stepped out of the shadows to rob him. He fought them at first, but they soon overpowered him, beat him ruthlessly, laughing as they did it, drunk and looking for someone to rob. They had found it in Talan who was so hopelessly in love he hadn’t seen them sneak up on him.

While he lay there in the snow dying from his injuries, one eye shut and swollen, the other able to see only a blurry vision, he thought he saw something, something moving quick and fast. The men who had beaten him were counting out their stolen money when this thing attacked them. It tore through their flesh, ripped out their throats savagely; and didn’t just drain the robbers of their precious blood, but this thing seemed to almost be bathing in it while it fed.

Talan tried to stay focused, tried to see what this thing was, but his will gave out and his good eye closed. He passed out into an injured slumber.

Thanks Anthony!

CAN LOVE MEND A HEART FULL OF HATE?
Small town girl, Molly Bennett, moves to Los Angeles where she becomes an outsider while attending Beverly Hills High School. It seems life cannot be any more dreadful.
Then one day after school, something magical happens. On a secluded hike in the Hollywood Hills, Molly chases her disobedient mutt and only friend into a hidden cavern. She stumbles upon a strange glimmering gateway that transports her to Arkana, a planet that is the cradle of an advanced human race. There, teenagers navigate amazing flying vehicles, compete in perilous games for glory, and possess supernatural powers.
While Molly tries to wrap her mind around this unbelievable discovery, she meets the alluring and mysterious Victor Sorren. He is a Sentinel Apprentice, whose hatred toward people from Earth is beyond understanding. Yet every time Victor unpredictably saves Molly’s life, his heart draws closer to hers, no matter how much he tries to fight against it. It further complicates things that their growing friendship is strictly forbidden. Earth people are prohibited in Arkana, yet Molly continues to cross through the portal to Arkana to see Victor.
Torn between their double lives, they go down a dangerous path, from where there is no return and multiple endings.
Would you fight to be with the one you truly love? What cost would you be willing to sacrifice for that love?

My Review
.

The story begins when the character finds himself in a dark, empty room. Not knowing how he got there, who he is, or where he is, he finally gets the courage to call out for help.

He’s answered, but not by a voice. Words light up on a wall. It’s worse than he imagined.

He’s a character in a book and it appears he’s wandered out of his story and ended up in the room. The author writes his answers and they appear on the wall.

The really bad thing is, the author didn’t write any notes and has no idea which story the character came from, so he needs his help.

This is a story of show and tell and the author guides the character, instructing him and supplying him with scant info on what he should do.

The room has ten doors, each labeled. The character must go through each door in order to find his home story. The author cautions him before entering that what lies behind each door could kill him and he’s not sure if the character will really die or return to the room. It’s an enter at your own risk thing and the character has no choice.

The character approaches the first door labeled Zombies and dives in, as did I.

After the first adventure I didn’t blame the characters hesitancy to go through another. Yet he must and he does. This continues through several more and I was with the character when he got good and mad at the author.

Between each new door, the character returns to the empty room, learns more from the author and goes through the next door. These interludes between each chapter are labeled Interlude.

He encounters many other characters in each story. After a while he learns not to become attached to them. The author’s monsters dispatch them in horrendous fashion.

As for the monsters, the character runs into some werewolves like nothing you could imagine. The werewolves are 8 feet tall, six feet long, with red eyes like lamps and drooling acid. Must not forget the tail of a scorpion that electrocutes you.

The vampires are brown and black spotted things riding black horses. Their eyes gleam yellow, they have no hair and only two fangs, no other teeth. And they have these really wicked whips.

There’s serial killers and these really gross wormy snake things, aliens, and many others. All of them are out to get ya too.

While you know the character goes through all ten doors, otherwise there wouldn’t be that many chapters, that doesn’t mean he finds his home story. It doesn’t mean he survives. The author gives no guarantees.

Half way through, the character is fed up, yet he continues. He must and the author needs him to. Otherwise the character will languish in the room and so will the story.

What kind of author doesn’t keep notes? And what’s with the stories? All of them are horrific. Is the author lying? Does he know which door will lead the character to his home story? Is that what the story really is, him having to jump through the hoops? If so, the author must be a sadist.

Unlike anything I’ve ever read before, the author pulled out all the stops. Monsters beyond imagination. A character lost and guided by his author. An author, frustrated at his own lack of foresight.

This is Anthony Renfro’s best work yet!

5 Stars

Blurb

Imagine that you are a character in a story.

You have a home.

You have a life.

You have it all.

Then suddenly you wake up alone and afraid in a cold, dark place. Somehow you find your courage and your voice. When you ask for help, words light up on a wall in the darkness. You read them and realize you are in the creative center of your author’s mind. Instead of rescuing you, the author asks you for help.

This book is about the journey of that character, as he moves from story to story desperately trying to find his home.

Bad Juju

Add To Goodreads

A Haitian bokor mentors two teens in the dark arts. Their spells backfire.

Lucien Nazaire flees his Haitian homeland and meanders around the United States for decades. He settles in a Wisconsin trailer park filled with elderly tenants. He meets Jake and hires him for odd household jobs. As their relationship progresses, Lucien invites the boy into the world of Voodoo.
Jake LaRue lives in foster care with his abusive uncle. The Voodoo lessons give him a sense of power within an otherwise helpless situation. Despite his loner status, he instantly connects with Henry, his only friend in high school.
Henry Novak has Asperger’s Syndrome. He fixates on historical events, most recently the 2010 Haitian earthquake. Like Jake, he becomes passionate about the dark side of Voodoo. They learn how to cast spells on those they hate and lust, leading up to dire consequences.
Months after the Haitian earthquake, Henry convinces his family to volunteer for the island’s reconstruction. Their mission turns into a nightmare when he mysteriously walks off of the campsite.
Bad Juju is a balance of horror, romance, and literary fiction intended for adults and mature teens. The plot uses research involving the Voodoo religion.

This is a great book. You can read my review here.

Mactus (The Light-Bearer Series, Book 2)

Here is a taste of MACTUS!

Suddenly, Charmeine started to become a little scared and flesh began to crawl.

Sandra went into the bathroom to finish changing her pants and shut the door.

Charmeine opened up the door to the terrace, letting the breeze cool her.  She walked to the railing and felt odd with blackness all around her.

Instantly, she felt someone there with her.  The house alarms started going off.  She started to run inside.

A man came from the shadows into the moonlight.   He grabbed her hands back to the stone railing.  Charmeine’s hands began to spark.  She struggled but he was strong and held her two wrists with one hand.

The man had long black hair, black eyes with pearl white skin.  He wore a black double-breasted waistcoat with brass buttons and tails.  A white ruffle was coming out of the top of his jacket and sleeves.  His black trousers were tucked into black riding boots.

Charmeine could hear men shouting orders in Romanian below on the ground.  The castle security knew the perimeter had been broken.  Her hands were sparking but it was ineffective because she couldn’t get out of his grasp.

The man’s mouth went to Charmeine’s neck and hissed in an English accent, “I do not have long my sweet.  So I need you to give a warning to your group of outlaws.  The Elder Council knows about all of you.  Each of you will end up on the ‘Altar of Judgment.’  However, you are very sweet my dear.  I could be persuaded to change the harsh punishment for your little revolutionaries if you come with me willingly?”

Charmeine said, “NEVER!  You have to be joking!”

He said, into her ear, “You, my dear are even more beautiful than the last time I saw you… I did not think it possible.  Ah, your body will please me well.”

He touched her arm and she jerked it away, but he was still holding her wrists like a vice grip.  He said, “And you smell so good.”

Charmeine said sarcastically, “It’s called ‘soap’!  Haven’t you ever used it before?  You filthy piece of…”

The man growled gripping her throat.

Charmeine felt his fang on her skin ready to bite her.  She cringed at the thought of it.

Out of the blue, from across the terrace, Sandra ran and threw a full body kick to his head.  He stumbled back releasing Charmeine.

Then Sandra laid a precision punch to his face and stomach at the same time. She whipped around giving him a scissor kick to his mid-section.

Charmeine looked with awe while the tiny Sandra jumped up and gave him a huge swiping kick to the jaw, smacking him hard into the railing.

The man began to growl lounging at Sandra.

Charmeine threw herself in front of Sandra bearing her sparking hands in front of her.

He gave Sandra a deadly stare and hissed angrily, “You are going to be sorry for that bitch!”  The dark man growled deeply with his eyes turning completely black.

Then he looked
at Charmeine’s charged up hands and composed himself.  He dressed down his jacket and said, “Oh, another one!  How delightful, the Elder Council won’t have fight over you Charmeine.”

She was taken-aback he knew her real name.

He said, “Oh, I see you still do not remember, what a shame, we could have reminisced.  After all we shared such a loving… intimate moment.  Ah… you cannot remember, can you?  Poor little Charmeine.”

He stood very close to her looking like a cat ready to strike.  He hissed, “My luscious Charmeine, I am Pascal.”

Charmeine’s face went white.  She asked, “Pascal as in Thomas’ Father?”

Pascal said in a sing-song kind of voice nodding his head, “Tsk, tsk… Charmeine… we knew each other in a much different way.  Your body against mine was divine.  I have been waiting to see you again.”

Charmeine’s stomach was turning flip-flops shaking her head and yelled, “No! No!” while white light was amassing in her hands and wind starting to blow.

Sandra yelled in disgust, “You pig!  Get away from her!” and her hands began to spark with blue flames.

Unbeknownst to Charmeine and Sandra …Tabbruis, Shane, Neal, Thomas and Dmitri had rushed into the doorway of the terrace.  The men started to spring at Pascal, but Dmitri held all of them back.  Dmitri saw electricity and wind flying around Charmeine.  Tabbruis was still fighting to get loose and Dmitri yelled, “She will not die!  Tabbruis believe!”

Sandra gave Pascal massive side-kicking blow to the chin which swirled him around.  Sandra’s hands burned with blue fire said, “Let’s give him some serious damage, Mom!”

As Pascal’s hand went to his face, he raised his eyebrows and laughed, “Oh ‘Mom?’  I didn’t notice a resemblance.”

Charmeine, too smart to give anything away about her or her family said, “Not the brightest bulb in the package, huh?”

He hissed at Charmeine.

She held one finger at him charged with a large electric current glowing brightly lighting up the whole side of the Castle.  Wind was rushing around Charmeine like a lazy tornado.  She began to hover off of the ground.

Charmeine said in a loud booming voice, “One touch of my finger and you will die Pascal.  Go back to your Elder Council and tell them I will bring them down to the ‘Altar of Righteous Judgment’ in Heaven.  I will send them to Hell where they be with Lucifer chained in the Lake of Torment and Fire until the end of time.  Your arrogance will be your undoing.  Bide your time, you black devil, because you will die and suffer for eternity!”

Charmeine threw a flash of lightning across and in front of Pascal’s body.  His eyes flew open in fear.

In that instant Pascal, turned laughing with a sinister tone and vanished.

Charmeine landed on the ground and the wind died down.  Her hands returned to normal and she was breathing heavy.

Sandra’s hands still sparking rushed up to the railing and hollered, “And next time, leave the Little Bo Peep outfit at home.  Didn’t you ever hear of the GAP!  It’s time to get clothes in this century!”

Charmeine and Sandra quickly grabbed each other hugging and laughing hard and patting each other on the back.  Sandra joking around yelled, “That was so cool!  Can we do that again?  That was awesome for sure!”
