The Protector
THE PROTECTOR

Author:T.L. Gardner

Imagine if your first breaths of life had come at the tip of a bloody hanger. The product of a failed abortion. Left for dead in a cold dark alley amidst the trash and vermin. Rescued by an old woman.
At the age of two, you tumbled down a flight of concrete stairs and emerged unscathed. At the age of eight, you were run down by a speeding Cadillac, the old ones -- you remember, the ones they made with steel--and suffered not a scratch.
At sixteen the old woman died and you cursed God for taking away the only good thing in your life.
At eighteen, you drove a car off a cliff at eighty five miles an hour on the German autobahn and you walked away with -- a headache.
Imagine being fed up with God and life.
Imagine being so disgusted you put a gun to your head and blew your brains out.
Imagine waking up three days later in a hospital room in perfect health.
Were Angels watching over you? Surely it must be so?
But why?
Demon Hunter is the epic tale of Elijah Garland, a young man who has come to the decision that his life was never meant to be. Convinced that love and happiness will only be found in death, he ends his life. But when he awakens 3 days later, framed for murder, he finds out that his life has only just begun and that there was a reason for all of the tragic events in his life. He learns that there is a single being directly responsible for all of his misery- a misery designed to strengthen his soul for the ultimate goal of his true reason for being.
Will Elijah be able to overcome his faithless existence and place his trust in a God he feels has abandoned him? Or will he succumb to the powerful temptations of evil? And what is this ultimate purpose he has been singled aside for? All this Elijah must learn and learn fast, for the FBI is hot on his trail and dark things are now hell bent on his demise.
The key to Elijah Garland's future may well rest within the hands of the beautiful Ebonee Lane, the FBI Agent he finds himself falling for and whose single purpose is to bring him in.
True love is trump, but whose hand will deal this powerful card?
These things remain to be seen, but one thing is for certain for Elijah Garland and all around him:
Dark days await? Reviewed by Rawsistaz.com

The Family II Life After Death
THE FAMILY II

Author:Antonne M. Jones

The Family (Book 1) is about four young black men on a quest for money, power and fame. "Ghetto Glory", as we in the hood call it. In route to achievement, some unexpected obstacles interfere with the mission. Obstacles such as murder, betrayal and greed.

Excerpts from The Family II...
You're out of your mind Lauryn. You sound like a disgruntled and scorned Black woman and you need to get over it. You thought I was going to die in jail, didn't you? Now you're married to this loser and unhappy, so you take it out on me. You divorced me, three years after I got locked-up, remember?" 'You arrogant and shallow jerk. That's what you think this is all about? It has nothing to do with that. It has all to do with what you did in the past and how I'm paying the price for it now.' "What are you talking about?" 'I'm talking about living with HIV. You fool.' The moment she said that, the room got dark and everything seemed to stop. 'Yes, I'm living with HIV because you were out screwing all kinds of women without protection. I may die soon. Get out of my house! Get out!' She ushered me out the door and I just sat in the car stunned. I wasn't sure of what to say or do, or if Shatora had overheard the argument. She got in the car without asking what her mother and I were arguing about, so I gathered she wasn't listening. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy our outing because there were too many thoughts running through my mind. Was I infected with HIV? Whom did I get it from? Did I infect my wife? Should we get tested? My world had come to a thunderous halt. All this time, Lauryn was infected and never said anything, blew my mind. I always assumed HIV and AIDS was a gay man's disease, or only contracted by intravenous drug users. Not knowing what to do, I called Carmen and begged her to come home and promised to straighten up.

Girls from Da Hood 2
GIRLS FROM THE HOOD 2

Author:Kashamba Williams, Joy Turner, Nikki Turner

GIRLS FROM DA HOOD 2" was well orchestrated amongst the 3 authors. Each story was meshed and correlated to each other in some manner. The authors selected their choice of character and blew up a storyline centered around their chosen characters for this hood book.
KaShamba Williams' story about "Chocolate Girl" was perfected. Her storylines illuminated the life of someone very real with the same issues/complications as Africa, the main girl character. Her downfall due to the weakness of a love for a man was penned so vivid and explicitly. Loved it! (5 Star Rating)
Joylnn Jossel picked up the baton with the following story, "WANNA BE". She was the first and very original with her character, Harmony, as a girl from da hood. She wasn't born there, but through association, she was planted there. Kudos to Joylynn, the way she creatively wrote and developed this character's story. (5 Star Rating)
Nikki pulled up the rear of the book with "ONCE A HOODRAT...ALWAYS A HOODRAT". This story wasn't quite as powerful as the first 2 stories; which influenced my rating on the book. But her story did have a surprising ending, which I enjoyed. (4 Star Rating)
In conclusion, these three ladies did an extraordinary teamwork in this novel. If you want a good "hood" book to read for entertainment - this is your book. The three variations of stories by each author is exceptional. Each author in this novel is a "heavy" hitter. GoodPeoples ARC BOOK CLUB Inc.
