Winter Wonderland

On the way home from work last night, the snow fell and it was so pretty. This morning when I woke up, it was a winterwonderland outside. I love the snow! We've gotten more this year than we have in a long time. I hope it snows more before Spring. There's nothing like fire in the fireplace, pot of chili on the stove and a good book to enjoy this kind of weather. Let it snow!

Review of The Betrayal
by Sheila Hendrix

Eighteen-year-old Zack McCannon needs to keep a close guard over in his younger brother, Matt. The boys, abandoned by their parents ten years earlier were raised by their grandparents, though Zack feels duty bound to take care of his brother…not because of Matt being a year younger, but because of Matt’s powers. Matt possesses special gifts—gifts that evil beings covet—and this is why the brothers must constantly be on the run. Where they aspire to bring good to the world and to help others, the demons want to control Matt to tap into his powers for their own wicked agendas.

When Matt dreams about a certain cave, he drags Zack there, insisting the dire need to check it out. Once there, evil strikes when demon Alanya, also known as “The Destroyer” traps them within invisible bars. Thinking he has the boys right where he wants them, Alanya—a creature of contemptible iniquity—plans to gain control over Matt and take over his powers. Alanya has been after the teens ever since Zack thwarted him from possessing Matt in the past. Angered by Zack’s hold over his brother and his intent to keep Matt safe, Alanya is determined to win control of Matt as well as torture Zack while making Matt a spectator to his debauchery.

For a while, Alanya manages to manipulate the younger McCannon, though Zack, the brunt of horrendous attacks through the creature’s mind games, finally gets through to Matt keeping evil at bay. However, the brothers realize they cannot slay this demon on their own and call on their two police officer friends to help in their fight. Bryan and Tony do not believe their story until Alanya takes control of them, playing them off each other. Though they may lose their lives, they stick together, determined to go to any measure to fight and destroy this vile entity.

Ms. Hendrix’s edge-of-the-seat thriller plots good against evil. This fast-paced novel is sure to be a hit among the young adult crowd. This is an author to watch!

 Reviewer Nancy Carty Lepri is the author of a children’s chapter book, Tiny Angel, and is an illustrator and freelance editor.    


Welcome to my blog! Come in, sit down, grab a cup of coffee or tea and let's get started. My name is Sheila and I'm here to introduce my new Young Adult Paranormal book entitled, The Betrayal. This is book one in The Dark Circle Book series. I'm currently working on book two.

The Betrayal

    When Zachariah and Matthew McCannon were young, their parents abandoned them, leaving Zack to take care of his little brother, Matt. Though they lived with their grandmother, she was always sick, so Zack was forced to raise him. This was not an easy task.
   Zack had his hands full because of Matt’s unusual powers. He has visions and dreams that come true, and when he gets angry or upset, he can move things with his mind. Because of this, evil seeks him, keeping Zack on his toes as his protector.
    As the brothers grew older, they became hunters, pursuing evil supernatural forces. After Matthew has a dream, it sends them on a hunt for cave, not knowing why, but realizing it is necessary. When they arrive, Matt finds the vision was a trap.
    A Darkness like no other wants to control Matt and kill Zack. The Darkness is named, Alanya, which means, The Destroyer.
    Alanya hates the brothers. In the past, every time he tried to apprehend Matt, Zack would thwart him by protecting his brother. Alanya is incensed that a mere human boy can beat him, for demons are not to be defied.
    When Alanya asks Zack, “How far will you go to save your brother?” Zack answers, “As far as I have to.”
    Now, the brothers are faced with a deadly force they never had to deal with before. This demon is on a deadly mission to destroy everything the brothers hold dear. If the McCannon’s are not careful, neither of them will be able to escape.
