About my blog

When I was a little girl, I struggled to read. Reading did not come naturally to me; however, over the last 30 years I have become an avid reader, I love books. I love LDS (Latter Day Saint) Historical fiction, I love romance, I love biographies, I love stories of hope, and ways to help. I will post books that I have read, ones that have warmed my heart and given me hope!

Full Tilt

This is the second book in the trilogy for the Rock Star Chronicles and Christian thriller. I recieved a free copy of this e-book from Media Guests for my honest review. I was not paid for a positive review.

About the Book:
Full TiltWhat Good Can Become of Psychotics, Meth Users, or the Mob?
In this sequel to Dark Star, rock star Everett Lester is eager to share the redeeming power of Christ’s love with the world through his music. But reaching his family in their twisted lives is another issue altogether. His gambling-addicted brother, Eddie, and the rest of his deteriorating family greet Everett’s attempts with disdain and hatred. When the Mob gets involved, dangerous threats become a haunting reality. And when Eddie’s son, Wesley—who blames Everett for his brother’s death—hooks up with psychotic Tony Badino, the two meth-using antichrists will stop at nothing to bring Everett down and secure his demise!

About The Author:

Talented storyteller Creston Mapes graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1983 with a BA in magazine journalism. Since then, he has written for major corporations, colleges, and ministries. He has written for Coca-Cola, TNT Sports, Focus on the Family, Walk Thru the Bible Ministries, and The Urban Alternative. His stories have been featured in magazines including Private Colleges and Universities, In Touch, Leaders for Today, and The Hockey News. Creston makes his home in Georgia.

My Review:

I was supposed to have this book finished in December, and then again on January 5th. But I am glad I took the time to read the whole book because this book was such a great story, of good and evil.

I do not usually read any books that are thrillers; I only agreed to read this book because it had a "Christian" voice. I am usually scared of my own shadow after any type of book or show on television that has suspense.

This book was FILLED to the brim with suspense. I loved the story of Everett and Karen Lester; and how they came to be a couple, and in this second book became powerful partners. In this book Everett is trying to help his brother and his family. This book took so many twists and turns.

The ending of this book was a POWERFUL testimony to me and others that take the time to read this trilogy. I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and took the time to read these first two books. I will be thinking about these characters for weeks to come. I can not wait to read the third and final book in this series.

The author Mr. Mapes wrote a believable story of a family. This book by Mr. Mapes was well written, easy to follow and is the type of book you do not want to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, every word on the page. I highly recommend this book as a follow up to Dark Star. You can read one book without the other, though to understand the full story it is best to read both books. This book was awesome!
