The 8 Natural Qualities of Exceptionally Cool People

Cool isn’t just what you say, it’s what you do.  Austin Powers. For some reason, the prolific 1960s spy who was unfrozen and thrust into an array of new assignments in a confusing ’90s world, is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of someone exceptionally cool — “Yeah, baby?” Okay, so … Continue reading The 8 Natural Qualities of Exceptionally Cool People

New Year Energy Revolution

He’d told me that his soul belonged to her and that was how much he loved … Continue reading Is There Ever a Time to Deny Love?

The Secret Library Book Blog

Title: Blood Legends: Ascension

Author: Kim Petersen

Genre: Urban fantasy/dystopian fantasy

Rating: 5 Stars

Not even the most cunning vampire can outsmart his way toward Ascension.
