The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume Two
by Lee J. Mavin
Genre: Horror


Blurb
: They are at it again! The Students have sold me their grim secrets and I have managed to get their words onto paper without anyone of them finding out. I have been posing as an undercover substitute teacher in order to get a closer look at their growing immoral tendencies and I don’t like what I see. This collection of twelve chilling tales will get you into the heads of the most ghastly young adults as they stop at nothing to quench their thirst for greed. They are obsessed with things like popularity vanity and often turn to harmful actions when pushed in the wrong directions. Some have even turned to murder in their wicked ways.
A scary and wild reading
The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume Two is available in Print & E-Book from ASJ Publishing, Amazon, and various other online retailers.

The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume One
by Lee J. Mavin
Genre: Horror

Seven 5 star ratings on Amazon.com

 

Blurb: No one is safe! The school has become a war-zone and the innocent are turning fast!

A brave and nameless teacher has collected some awful and disturbing documents from some ghastly students. These are their stories and they will shock and amaze both teacher and student. But they haven’t been given away for free. This terrified individual has paid a hefty price to get the truth and is paying for it, with his freedom.

 

In his report he states:

If you are considering a career in teaching I would advise against it completely. It has become a profession far more dangerous than a police officer or even an army soldier in open war.’

I’m risking my life giving you this information, but I feel you need to know the truth. On the surface these children appear innocent and well-mannered but it is inside where their darkness dwells.’

The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume 1 is the first collection of short stories from the writer that brought you Reverse the Universe, Lee J Mavin, and will take you down a path you never thought existed. It’s packed with twelve short stories, all equally alarming and unsettling, as well as a secret report written by an undercover teacher.
Amazon Review from Leeroy: The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume One by Lee J Mavin is the first of a series of chilling and disturbing tales. It is focused around the dark thoughts and aspirations of young teenagers living and going to school in Shanghai. It is to be noted that children in Shanghai are usually being raised by their grandparents (spoiled rotten) and never have brothers and sisters. Add to this, the constant pressure and focus from their teachers to perform at a high level and you have a bunch of overworked hot heads.

 

There are twelve short stories in this edition. Each are very different, yet that have some freaky similarities: The narrators are all very driven to get what they want. Some seek respect, overs revenge, but all stop at nothing to get what they want!

 

Go and check this book out now, published by ASJ Publishers is available both on kindle and paperback! Volume two of the madness is rumored to be out this year too!

 

The Students Sold Us Secrets Volume One is available in Print & E-Book from ASJ Publishing, Amazon, and various other online retailers.

Book Review: The Chosen: Rise Of The Darkness

21209872Alex is a man who is down on his luck, he lost his fiance’ and parents and is now being plagued by horrible visions. In these visions he sees a wasteland of dead bodies and a beast that is not human. Alex struggles to find answers and has been going to paranormal conferences to find them. Over time he meets some investigators and learns of a prophecy that will bring about the end of humanity.

An old god will arise bringing an army of demons and zombies to kill all the humans and start a new world order. Alex finds out he is the chosen one who can stop the coming darkness and save the world as we know it. Not only will Alex have to fight one old god, there is also another spirit who is trying to gain power and Alex has to fight his inner demons as well. He has help from a team of paranormal investigators, but will it be enough to stop the darkness from taking over?

The Chosen: Rise Of The Darkness by C.A. Milson is a story with a lot going on. Alex is the star and my favorite character but he’s only a small part of a big story. I loved the character of Alex because of the transition he goes through. He goes from rock bottom trying to get over the tragedies in his life to being the only one who can save humanity. The interesting part of his character is that he doesn’t want any of this, he doesn’t want the power that is growing within him and he doesn’t want to be responsible for saving the world. He wants his fiance’ back and a simple life. Alex is thrust into a horrible situation and doing what he has to do. I liked him because I think most people can relate to him.

There were some great villains in this story, one is Tanzac who was a fallen angel and the other is Jamison who is an evil spirit who hates everyone. Jamison is the perfect villain, he was a cult leader and spent his life and death influencing people to do bad things. Jamison is the kind of guy in a book that I love to hate. Tanzac the other bad guy is sympathetic and actually shows compassion at points in the book. I love it that this book has a villain that seems to be very complex and another that you just want to see destroyed.

My favorite part of this book was a scene where a man decides to do a mock satanic ritual to get revenge on a couple of people. While he does some evil deeds he awakens something far worse. I liked  how the demon that shows up does good by default.  The characters in this story are great and complex. In addition to the characters there is a theme about new beginnings in this book and good coming from evil along with some religious metaphors. My only problem with Rise Of The Darkness was that I felt it lacked suspense at times but the great characters make up for it. Rise Of The Darkness is the beginning of a trilogy and its a good book about good versus evil.

The Sad Cafe review by C.A. Milson

sadcafe01-225x300The Sad Cafe

Movie review by C. A. Milson

Stars: Bradley Fowler, Katie Lanigan, John LaFlambo

Directed by: Bennie Woodell

IMDB Rating: 7.0 out of 10

Plot: The Sad Cafe, brings to life the gritty world where cause and effect, life and death, love and hatred play out a delicate balance. A place where unrequited love is the driving force behind closing ourselves off from the world, and is the cause of unrelenting bitterness to the happiness that was taken from us, the happiness we long for. The Sad Cafe is, at its core, a love story…a romance tragic in all aspects. A testimony to the pain people endure in their pursuit for love and companionship.

My Tagline: Inner monologues, double dipping hitmen, and Carl Grissom….

Review: When you are enlisted to be a hit-man, there are certain things that ring true. 1. The life you once knew will be gone, and 2. Personal relationships are expendable.

This film, produced on a modest budget of $8,000 hit the mark in telling the story of one hit-man who goes from a street-kid to a crime boss’ number one guy.

Bradley Fowler plays the role of Jack. A former street kid taken in by a crime-boss and is now an elite hit-man. No hit is too big for Jack. He is given an assignment and he carries it out to the letter. That is until he is given an assignment to kill his new girlfriends’ father (who he first meets in a restaurant with Rose later that day). Knowing that he is torn between the devotion he has for Rose and his loyalty to the mob, Jack needs to make a decision that will end badly, no matter which way he looks at it. Kill the girlfriends’ dad or betray the mob? Not an easy decision to live with and one that will have consequences in the short term.

As it turns out, the daughter of our crime-boss (Selena – played by Liz Davis) has a thing for Jack, and no girl is going to stand in the way of her getting the guy she wants (Bloody princess bitch she is.  )

I will not say too much of how things play out in this film, but I will say that even some hit-men have a sense of humanity, and Bradley Fowler shows that he is actor to keep an eye on in future films.

There were some moments which did remind me of James Spader’s character (Red) in The Blacklist, which can only be a good thing 

If you like The Blacklist or The Untouchables, then watch this by all means.

VerdictThis guy is Untouchable

My Rating: 7 out of 10.
