Mason Dixon - Monster Hunter (A New Templars Novella) by Eric R. Asher



Synopsis:

They are the first line of defense against the things that go bump in the night.

They are the keepers of a centuries-old legacy of The Church defending the world against the forces of darkness.

They are a bunch of highly armed rednecks, internet video celebrities, soccer moms, and assorted broken nutjobs.

They are the new Templars, and things are about to get weird.

From the pages of Bubba the Monster Hunter comes a new series featuring the Hunters from around the United States hunting down monsters, fighting off supernatural baddies, and making life really, really bad for the things that hunt people.

He's Mason Dixon, and he's a bona fide internet celebrity. He has his own video series, a pistol that deserves its own area code, and a high definition video camera, and he's not afraid to use any of them.

In this introductory urban fantasy novella, we meet Mason, his right hand Emma, his "handler" Noah, his anime-styled hacker friend Himari, and more monsters than you can shake a stick at. Unless it's a really big stick.

With Mason, it's always a big stick. This first novella in the series follows Mason through the wilds of Missouri as he hunts down monsters that hunt men, monsters that eat chewing tobacco, and monsters that make pancakes. And there's moonshine.

And then Bubba the Monster Hunter shows up.

The New Templars novella series is a new series of short novels, similar to BookShots. Mason Dixon - Monster Hunter is the first in the series by popular urban fantasy and steampunk author Eric R. Asher.

How cute is this? Simple story that carries a sweet message involving a visit to a pumpkin patch and finding the "perfect" pumpkin. Illustration children will relate to and sentences spaced to not overload a child mind when they decide to read each word for themselves. I for one understand finding the perfect pumpkin because I spent many hours in the scorching heat with the little ones
(they were in a wagon and under an umbrella) and leaving the pumpkin patch with (?). The message I got, made me think and go, "ahh. . ." Pick up The Perfect Pumpkin and read it to your little one, or better yet parents read it for yourself I know the message will make your heart go soft.  The author was kind enough to mail a physical book in exchange for a review, awesome😄 Thank you!

 The Bible is not a fairy tale, but every great story happened “once upon a time.” The Once Upon a Time Storybook Bible highlights powerful and inspiring stories from the Bible, beautifully illustrated with fantastical artwork by Omar Aranda.

ONCE UPON A TIME HOLY BIBLE and ONCE UPON A TIME STORYBOOK BIBLE:


With the popularity of fairy tales and Disney animation, and especially with the new release of Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast on March 17, Zonderkidz wanted to publish a storybook Bible and full -text Bible (Holy Bible offered in hardcover, and pink leathersoft editions) that would resonate with children and families who loved those types of movies, and loved reading a great story.
The art will captivate Disney lovers with similar looking characters and color palettes
Zonderkidz wanted to capture fans of this genre, but introduce young children to the word of God, and introduce them to the great characters of the Bible. It’s important to note that this brand serves to resound the theme that the Bible is NOT a fairy tale, but every great Bible story happened once upon a time. The Bible is the ultimate Happily Ever After story!
What Christian parent doesn’t want to tie in Bible learning fun with what their kids already love, but also have the opportunity to teach them that the real heroes and stories of our faith come straight from God’s Word.
The Storybook Bible utilizes even more of the captivating art style and beautiful narrative to tell the major stories of the Bible, and the Holy Bible includes the full-text of the bestselling New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) translation, and highlights 6 great stories of the Bible in full-color tip-in pages.  (there will be 6 stories, and each story is told on 4 illustrated pages.)

MY REVIEW:

I finally received my books and I thank you.  Two days before the due date to send in my review.  I live across a mass ocean and delivery time usually takes time, no kidding 😊  Anyway what I like about Once Upon A Time Storybook Bible, everything.  I am happy how the Bible is told like reading a story book children can relate to and not be afraid of the Bible or afraid of God or learn about the newborn King, Jesus.  Also there's  a note after each story titled, "Happily Ever After" about God's reasons why he love us, trust us and trust in him, worship him, and how he watches over us.  Pray for his help and trusting God I felt that, truly by reading this book.  Some stories, for example Zacchaeus the Tax Collector explains how Jesus knew Zacchaeus was not a good person but still wanted to be friends with him.  Why?  Jesus loves us no matter what mistakes we make.  Messages like this to a child carries a lot of weight.  A wonderful book to read to the little ones and lessons to learn too.

NIRV Once Upon a Time Holy Bible, I am keeping for myself.  I own several Bibles however this one feels right for me.  Simplistic,  easy to handle and I can follow the stories quite well.  Words are as I mentioned simple, you see if you pickup a book and open it, the first few pages will tell you if it's  interesting enough to read it.  And "yes" I felt comfortable enough to skim through it and stop from time to time to read a story and verses.  So many Bibles out there and I read many by far, I for one found this particular  book  very good.   I have not opened my Bible much (bad tutu🤗) however I know I will be doing more of it now.  Thank you to FlyBy Promotions & publishers, I received two books in exchange for a review and post.  Thank you!!!

WELCOME TO THE ALCHEMIC APARTHEID... 

For over one hundred years the Civic Order and the Alchemic Order have held a shaky truce, peppered by violence and mistrust. But when Koa, a Civilian-born insurgency, bombs an Alchemist summit, the truce is shattered. Now, Koa is rising. War is coming. And all sixteen-year-old Zeika Anon can do is keep moving as she watches the lords of alchemy slowly overtake her home.

But when clashes between Koa and the Alchemic Order put a final, deadly squeeze on the remaining Civilian territories, Zeika finds herself in the crosshairs of fate. She must walk the line between survival and rebellion against the Alchemists. On one side of the line awaits death. On the other, the betrayal of her civilization, her loyalties, and herself.
