The Devil and Miss Prym

The international bestselling author of The Alchemist, Eleven Minutes and Veronika Decides To Die has written another masterpiece which deals this time with the centuries old battle between good and evil under the mask of temptation. The chosen location was Viscos, a remote quiet village where people of seemingly good nature thrive. Unbeknownst to most, a stranger with an agenda motivated by his gruesome past,  suddenly visits. This man will unveil fear, vengeance and greed among its inhabitants. The good will be faced with evil and the battle will begin in the hearts and souls of many. Find out how this parable will fare and if the saying  that 'GOOD ALWAYS PREVAILS' still rings true.
There are some lines in the book which deeply bothered me, like:  
How can one know what will please the Almighty? Do what your heart commands, and God will be happy."  (p. 149).

The Undead Series Books 1 & 2

Undead and Unemployed / Undead and Unwed
How would you feel if you were attacked by something so vile that it made you immortal and more gorgeous than ever? The only catch is, it would be so hard for you to keep a 9-5 job since you can only be awake at night?  That's what happened to Betsy whose life (or death?) is about to change forever and for better. Good thing that her friends are always on her side. And on Mary Janice Davidson's second book of this funny vampire series, our protagonist is slowly falling for the most evil of them all, Eric Sinclair, the Vampire King as she herself is now becoming the new Vampire Queen. He's soooo powerful and sooo H-O-T that Brad Pitt/ Tom Cruise/ Tom Welling combined pales in comparison.  But admitting this to herself and her dear friends would be sacrilege in itself. Watch how she conquers her inner  emotional battles on the book's many hilarious twists and turns  while providing fun, adventure and some "kilig" moments for the readers.
