The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel Review

The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel

By David Weiskircher

The Cursed Hill: An Alex Drew Novel by [Weiskircher, David]
Alex Drew and Claire Tierney – along with their dog, Joe – return. Recently married, Alex and Claire find themselves with a 3-year-old Mexican girl that had been smuggled across the border. They find her on sacrosanct Apache land, on a piece of land called the Cursed Hill. They also find the girl’s mother murdered. In one of her boots is a ripped piece of paper. On it is Alex’s name. 

In the midst of illegal smuggling of people and drugs across the border, Alex and Claire race to solve these mysteries. Meanwhile, the pristine beauty of their New Mexico hometown is at stake when a new mine opens on the outskirts of town. 

The third in a series. 

MY REVIEW OF The Cursed Hill

When Alex witnesses a murder on Apache land, he doesn’t hesitate to ride in to assess the situation, even if it is on the cursed hill that is to be avoided. The victim was a Mexican woman, and she had hidden her three year old daughter, Rosa, behind a group of boulders, thus, saving her from the shooter. When it is discovered that the victim was carrying a piece of paper with Alex’s name on it, he is further compelled to investigate the woman’s reason for seeking him out. But first, he must face the wrath of Chief Bodaway for trespassing on reservation land, and taking the victim from his jurisdiction.

I always enjoy reading Alex Drew novels. I like how they are modern day westerns, and updated for situations with today’s occurrences. The plot is always well thought out. Each of the characters are explored to give full depth to them. The introduction of Chief Bodaway was a good fit for the plot, and I hope will make more appearances in future chapters. I loved his personality, and the camaraderie between him and Alex. The dry humor throughout kept me entertained, as usual. You can’t help but like a witty cowboy and Indian (pun intended).

Creole Moon: The Betrayal Review

Creole Moon The Betrayal

By S.T. Holmes

Creole Moon The Betrayal by [Holmes, S. T.]
"Vividly rendered gothic settings and intriguing characters help advance the historical and supernatural elements..." -- Kirkus Review

Sgt. George Francis Genois is an officer in the Confederate army. He returns to his hometown in Louisiana to celebrate the wedding of his twin brother Gerald. Mystical events throw him in the path of Jewella Du Viller, a fiery rebellious young woman standing at the river bank stirring the slaves to fight for their freedom. George whisks the woman away from perceived danger and escorts her to her carriage. He discovers later that she is the sister of a childhood friend. He falls madly in love with her and proposes marriage. Before the wedding can take place, she is arrested for treason. George is forced to abandon his military aspirations in order to save the woman he loves. He seeks the aid of a sorcerer, Mamuska and his wife Ophelia.

MY REVIEW OF Creole Moon

George had no plans to get married. He was a career military officer. All he wanted was to see his twin brother get married, and then get back to work. But then some type of unseen force drew him to Jewella, who, it turns out, was the half-sister to a childhood friend. Before he knew it, he became engaged to Jewella. Neither wanted to marry, and George couldn’t understand what was going on. Knowing there was some supernatural forces going on, George seeks out the chicken man, a voodoo priest, for help. Unknown to George though, the chicken man has ulterior motives for helping George out.

This story held my interest through the first half. After that, I lost interest. It was a good plot, and I liked all the characters, but when the focus of the story changed, it lost its momentum. When the Gods and the underworld took over, I got a little lost, and bored as well. I didn’t understand the who’s and why’s throughout that part. I felt like it took up too much of the story. The same goes with George’s transformation. But I was still interested enough to find out what becomes of George, just not enough to read the next installment.
