Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Fiction

Tropes: First love 

Themes: Coming of Age, Racial identity, Gay parenting

It is a standalone story.

 It is the third book that focuses on the Burd siblings: 

Four Calling Burds, First Born Sons, Colton’s Terrible Wonderful Year. 

The book does not end on a cliffhanger.


Universal Link  |  Amazon US  |  Amazon UK 


Colton is on a quest to meet his surrogate mom who might help him navigate being a Black teenager in today’s America. The woman who gave birth to him is Black. His dads are not. His diverse community of family and friends includes lots of LGBTQ+ people, though his first love is a girl of mixed race like him. Colton’s dads reluctantly introduce him to his birth mother, but she doesn’t turn out to be the person he hoped for. On his journey of falling in love, nearly losing one of his dads, and confronting a racist cousin, he learns about love, non-traditional families, community, and what is important in life. The biggest challenge of all is something he discovers about his birth, causing friction with his dads. But like every difficulty in his life, the love of his dads ultimately carries him along and lifts him up.

I can pinpoint the day my life started getting strange, and by strange, I mean grown-up. My parents had just picked me up at the police station. It was the first time I had gotten in trouble with law enforcement and my dads (yes; I have two dads) were upset and, I suppose, embarrassed, and a bunch of other emotions. Let me just say, my dads are the coolest people on earth and probably don’t deserve the hard time I sometimes give them when I do stupid things and say stupid things and they get mad, and I get mad back. I don’t even want to think about all the times we ended up in tears because, you know, life is hard, and I really love them, and they really love me.

Those times the three of us ended up blubbering idiots were the worst but later turned out to be the best when we finished the evening on the couch eating ice cream and watching a movie that we all agreed was terrible and laughed and cuddled under a blanket because evenings are always cold in San Francisco, including in the summer. And, even if they weren’t, I loved the warmth and comfort of being in a family that wasn’t afraid to show affection.

But coming home from the police station was tough. I walked into the house in front of my dads and was headed for my room, my happy place, feeling like everything would be okay if I could get to my room and close the door on all the bad stuff. But before I was halfway down the hall, I heard my dad’s raised voice. “Where are you going?” That’s my dad, Augie, August actually, who I call Dad.

It was pretty obvious, but I said, “To my room.”

And my other dad chimed in. “No, you’re not.” His name is Ruben, but I call him Papi. He was born in Los Angeles, though his parents are from Mexico.

“Why not?”

“Did you think that was the end of it?” said Dad. “You’ve lost your screen time for a week and you will come home directly from school until further notice.”

“I said I was sorry.” I think I actually groaned like I was the most unfortunate teenager in the world, which I knew was a long, long way from the truth.

“Sorry doesn’t cut it. There have to be consequences.” That was Dad with the dreaded c-word, a favorite with parents, teachers, and, I guess, adults in general.

Here’s the deal. My two best friends, Fer and Josh, and I went downtown after school and ended up in the Target store. It’s not something we do a lot because we often have basketball practice or Fer has to go home and take care of his younger sibs because both his parents work or Josh has to do something because whichever one of his divorced parents he’s with on a particular day is on his case. And Dad is now home all the time because he took a leave of absence from his job at the Mission Branch of the public library so he could pursue writing full time. If I’m not home by a certain time, I get the third degree. But the way the stars lined up that day, we didn’t have basketball practice. Fer’s mom stayed home because the clients she cooks for were out of town; it was the part of the week Josh was with his dad and his dad was working late; and my dad went to some writing event in Berkeley and wouldn’t be home until dinnertime. We were free. It was amazing how rarely that happened on a weekday.

The Bridge to Magic

The Sundered Web Book 1

by Alex Thornbury

Genre: YA Dark Dystopian Fantasy

2022 Royal Dragonfly Award Winner for Science Fiction/Fantasy

"This is dark fantasy at its best ... "—The Book Commentary
A gripping, award-winning debut for lovers of traditional high fantasy, set in the dying world where humanity is likened to weakness, and the only path to salvation is the same path which might lead to death.

The Blight. The end of Mankind. The Bridge that may be salvation or the final betrayal.

In this grimdark fantasy, Elika, an orphan on Terren's streets, hates and fears the bridge that spans the great chasm to the Deadlands. Like everyone else, she clings to the hope that purging every lingering echo of magic from the world can stop the Blight.

Then she discovers that magic is hiding within her, and through her it seeks to enact the will of its own. Everything Elika knew about her past shatters, as long-buried secrets about her true birth emerge. Accused of being a mage, many doubt her loyalties. Her gang turns against her. The one man she thought she could trust and love, abandons her. Elika must soon decide: Either destroy the magic inside her or cross the bridge to her own uncertain end. But what awaits them in the Deadlands where the enemy of mankind roams wild? Her future or her end?

The Bridge to Magic is a story of a life between two deaths and an impossible choice to make. It is a story of finding hope, love and survival in a world where none seems possible.

Praise for The Bridge to Magic
"A magnificent high fantasy debut...stunning page-turner...original, captivating, and readers may be surprised to find this is the author’s debut novel. The storyline is absolutely mesmerizing, and Thornbury has a knack for telling a dark story. And I do mean dark." 

Reader Views⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"This was a really great introduction into the Sundered Web series. Alex is wonderfully skilled in world building and this book is a prime example of that. Her wonderful descriptions creates beautiful and vivid imagery. It's almost like the reader becomes Elika." 

NetGalley Reviewer ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"This is dark fantasy at its best... The more creative descriptions of the darkness that threatens humanity pull the narrative somewhere between horror and fantasy... A delightful read with a voice that works and prose that is bold and enticing. But it is the immersive world of this creation that will have most readers turning the pages." 

The Book Commentary ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"A sensational work of fantasy fiction that will captivate YA readers and adult fantasy fans alike... An accomplished tale with a fascinating core concept, great character development, and gorgeous, spine-tingling dark fantasy styling. A series not to be missed." 

Readers' Favorite ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"A wonderful fantasy story for teens and adults... The author has a great imagination and whilst this book is a complete story in itself I look forward to the sequel." 

Booksprout Reviewer
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"Shut your windows. Draw your curtains. Lit a candle and let the pages suck you in. This is a gritty chilling, and dark story set in a fascinating world. The plot has many pleasant twists and the characters can surprise with unexpected actions that reveal more about their hearts... Despite all of the desperation the end of the world brings, there is a sense of beauty and coziness. Occasionally even humor. And it all creates an engaging balance." 

BookSirens Reviewer ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
"Expertly crafted and highly readable… Mesmerising." The Prairies Book Review
"... thought provoking ... enchanting novel." Sally Altass - Author of the Witch Laws
"The Bridge to Magic is well written and draws you in from the start. Well-paced and filled with good characters... a quality entry into the fantasy genre." Christian Warren Freed – Author of The Lazarus Men

Joe Mack Shadow Council Files Book 4

by Gail Z. Martin & Larry N. Martin

Genre: Dark Urban Fantasy

Werewolves, Vamps, and Thieves!

Joe Mack and his friends head to Pittsburgh to deal with a surge of disappearances, all people with psychic abilities going missing under highly questionable supernatural circumstances. That’s enough to keep anyone hopping, but Joe can’t ignore the feeling that there’s something even bigger going on behind the scenes.

Joe, West, and Sarah Grace team up with new allies to fight a whole new level of danger—and uncover the secrets behind why people with special abilities are vanishing and who’s taking them. What they learn could change the paranormal balance of power—permanently. It’s their job to keep the worst from happening, whatever it takes.

From the steel mills to the coal mines, Joe Magarac is the man to call for supernatural problems. After all, he does have a little help from Krukis, the god of blacksmiths, but immortality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Magarac left his old life behind him and now lives as Joe Mack, a literal man of steel and magic.

Spellbound is full of paranormal adventure, murdering mediums, creepy circuses, a theater full of vampires, malicious mesmerists, found family, secret supernatural agencies, dark magic, and loyal friends.

It’s the fourth in the Joe Mack series of Shadow Council Archives from Gail Z. Martin & Larry N. Martin, the duo that brought you Spells, Salt, & Steel. The Shadow Council Archives are urban fantasy novellas set in the universe of Quincy Harker, Demon Hunter and featuring folk heroes throughout history.


Joe Mack Shadow Council Files Book 3

Haunted hotels, old gods, mobsters, molls, and monsters are abroad in Chicago, and it’s up to Joe Magarac to protect the innocents from them. But how can he protect the city when he might not be able to keep himself alive? The mad ramblings of Alastair Crowley and the tales of horror imagined by HP Lovecraft have nothing on the magic etched into the walls of a secret room below Chicago’s Lexington Hotel.

Deep in the coal and ash tunnels beneath the city, workers are being murdered, their bodies left in shreds, and with Al Capone out of the picture, the criminal underbelly in Prohibition-Era Chicago is teetering on the edge of all-out chaos. Now it falls on Joe Mack, the steelworker-turned-nigh-immortal man of steel, to bring Chicago back from the brink before all is lost for good.

Can Joe Mack, along with his companions West and Sarah, determine what mysterious creature is causing the deaths? But more importantly, will Krikus’s magic be enough to keep Joe alive when the chips are down and they go toe-to-toe with their foe?

Chicagoland is the third book in the Joe Mack Shadow Council Files by award-winning author team Gail Z. & Larry N. Martin, authors of the Spells, Salt, & Steel series and the Wasteland Marshals novellas.

Magarac left his old life behind him and now lives as Joe Mack, a literal man of steel and magic.

Now Joe teams up once again with Jack West and Sarah McAllen to fix a problem, this time leaving Cleveland behind for Reading, Pennsylvania. Witches are being murdered, secret societies are brewing more than illegal bathtub gin, and someone is trying to summon creatures from Lovecraftian lore from deep within the mines. Again.

When you ask a god for favors, be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.

Josef Magarac was a brave man, a strong man, a hard-working immigrant who only wanted a better life for his family.

Instead he got a bloodbath.

From the bloody steel mill strikes of Pennsylvania rose a true man of steel, a steelworker transformed into something more by the power of the Old Gods. Now Joe Mack is in Cleveland, and he’s working to protect those who can’t protect themselves. When a friend asks him to look into disappearances in a largely immigrant neighborhood, Joe takes an interest. When his interest leads him to a vampire stalking the streets of his adopted home, he takes more than an interest. He takes on a mission.

#Sexy #Nerd #Review...Sisters...#Slavery #BlackHistoryMonth #LoveAndMarriage #Sisterhood #Bookworms #BookNerds

All her life, Winnie passed for White, using it to her advantage, and climbing the social ladder. When her child is born Black, she asks Jolene to raise him. "If you can't ask your sister, who can you ask?"

The Sexy Nerd's Review. . .
When I first started reading this story, I was impressed. I thought this is pretty good for an author that I’ve never heard of, but have you ever seen a person you thought at first glance was so beautiful only to notice the more you stared how unattractive they really are?

If you said, ‘yes,’ then half the battle is won with this review. This story is sort of all over the place and I’m not exactly sure where to begin. Our story takes place in New Orleans, Louisiana. I believe the period was during slavery, but near the end of slavery because some of the slaves were free in this book. The years are a bit hazy at best. That’s the first problem. The back stories of Jolene and Winnie and how they came to know each other. When I read the synopsis for this story, I thought the two women were biological sisters, but it turns out they were sold to a school that groomed pretty young slave girls into “fancies.” You were considered a Fancy when you were of lighter skin. The darker skinned slave girls were sold as cooks and maids, although a few did manage to become fancies.

I mention this part because the author felt the need to inundate the reader with what a ‘fancy’ is and the importance of how she can become one. That began to grate on my nerves. To me, once you’ve established the characters’ lives and back stories, there wouldn’t be a need to continually advise the reader of it, correct? Once Winnie graduated from the finishing school, she met and fell in love with what would eventually become her husband, Jonathan. Winnie carried a dark secret and she loved Jonathan so much that she told him the absolute truth that she was a black woman passing for white. She was prepared to walk away because she knew her lover wouldn’t stay with her knowing she was really black, but to her surprise, he married her anyway because he loved her so much.

And let’s talk about that ‘love.’ Winnie is the same woman who loved Jonathan so much that when she got pregnant, she immediately became frightened because even though she was extremely fair skinned, her parents were as dark as night. What if her unborn child is born of darker skin? What will this do to her husband and his standing in the legal community? Her secret would be known throughout the land. So, Winnie, who loved her husband so much and kept no secrets from him ever makes the decision to give her unborn child to her sister, whom she met in finishing school, to raise him as her own since Jolene could not pass, but was still light skinned enough to be a fancy.

Are you following where I’m going with this, Nerds? What annoyed me is if Winnie and Jonathan loved each other so much and kept nothing from each other and she braved the news that she was black to him, why would it never occur to her husband that their child could come out brown or dark skinned? And, more importantly, if he loved her as much as he said it throughout the story, would he have cared what his son’s color was? Jonathan was so ignorant to this fact and believed the lies his wife told him when he traveled to see the Governor on business to run for mayor, Winnie gave birth and gave her son to Jolene to raise. Oh, but wait a minute. Jolene was only to raise Winnie’s son for a short period of time. She was going to eventually bring him back to the big house to live with her and her husband. Hmm, what lies would Winnie concoct to explain this to Jonathan?

So, readers, this is where my problems with this story really began to frustrate me. This story started out so good and had such promise. I could see a hundred different scenarios play out through my mind’s eye, but none of what I read ever came to fruition. The author took us down a completely different rabbit hole. But the absolute worst part of this story for me was the ending. The ending angered me to no end. Thank God this Kindle version was only 267 pages because if I would have vested any more time in this book, I think I would not have finished it. To think, I originally gave this book four stars, but I chopped off a star when I got to the very end. OMG! Yeah, I wanted to slit my wrists.

I am not a fan of this story. Amazon advised there were other books in this series from this author. Eh, I think I’m good. Umm, not going to go any further with this story. I might have considered that, had the ending not been so devastatingly gruesome. My, my, my!

The Sexy Nerd gives Sisters three additional friends to pal around with. As I mentioned, I’m not a fan of this story. It started off strong and gave lots of promise, but the more I read, the more questions I had and the more problems I had with the continuity and time period and things that just weren’t explained and left me hanging. Ugg, it was all over the place. This was not the way I wanted to end my Black History Month reading, but at least most of it was awesome reads. Until next time, Nerds, you know what to do.

Open a Book and Get Mind Blown!
