Praise for Toxic:
While reading Toxic, I found it to be very captivating. I couldn’t put it down. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning just to finish it. I kept telling myself “One more chapter. Just one more.” But I lied to myself; it was never just one more. And even when I was finished, I just sat there thinking about it, wanting to start on the sequel. Toxic is genius. The message is clear, and you won’t be able to forget it. It’s a must read for anyone who loves adventure and creativity. (I know it sounds cliché, but it’s true). I absolutely love the world Vicki V. Lucas creates, and her characters are very human, dealing with their own personal conflicts. Lucas is creative and funny. I can’t tell you how many times I caught myself smiling and laughing, and some parts even made me want to cry. And I’m not really a crier, so that fact absolutely amazes me and shows to me how great the book truly is. Again I say, a must read for anyone! – Kaitlyn Deann, author of the novel “The Witches’ Sleep” Review on Amazon
Where many fantasy novels rely on magic to save the save the world, this one does the exact opposite. A fast paced read with well thought out characters and back history. It was enough to keep me up till 2 am reading it! Looking forward to the second book! -Coriander Vaine Review on Amazon
I liked this book… It is geared toward the YA audience but I enjoyed it just as much as an adult. It reminded me of a cross between “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” and “Harry Potter” mostly because of the 3 friends and their adventures. It was easy to relate to the characters and I loved the good vs evil. I would consider this an allegory with the Bible similarities. The adventure kept me captivated and the pages turning. -Alina Review on Goodreads
Vicki V. Lucas brings to life three youth who are thrust together to fight a common enemy and solve a big problem for their towns perhaps making them heroes. Lucas does an amazing job of creating the fictional towns these three came from and details the area so much so that it is easy to “see” the people, the landscape, and the characters. The characters were my favorite part of the book, next to the story. The action flowed so well and engaged me in such a deep way that even when I fell asleep reading the book at 1 or 2 a.m., I would dream about the characters and the events in the story! The story takes three teens and casts them as chosen slayers who can defeat the evil Belial and Nighthawk Nephesus and free their people of delusions of great kings, goddesses, crystals. The trio is shown the power of Adoyni, a great and loving God. There is tell of a battle in which Lesu is killed, and has evil pawns called the Unwanteds. Equally as engaging as The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings!! -Lyn Review on Amazon
Beware those on the dark side! This book is truely “Toxic” to dark forces, magic and all that is evil! I loved it! The world I entered in the book was enough like this world that I could identify and even though I’m NOT a teen I became so immersed in the character’s lives that I found myself wanting to pray for them. I caught myself before I did, of course, but it has on-the-edge-of-your-seat action and the plot moves along quickly and smoothly. I am impressed!
I loved the winged horses! There’s no other word for it, but “love”. They are the embodiment of all that we horse lovers imagine in our favorite equine partners. Or all horses for that matter. I hope in future books, cuz I’m defintiely waiting for that “next book”, we will get to know more of the winged wonders.
This book is good for teens, definitely. I would recommend it for any teen, or coming-teen. I know I’ll be giving my grandaughter and grandson one when they are old enough. The lessons the characters learn are invaluable and very pertinate to every day life, whether you’re a teen or an adult. And yes, I would recommend it to adults who are up for an adventure and some toe-grabbing excitemtent. But hang on to your seats cuz it’s a ride! -Breezy WLK Review on Amazon
Praise for Rancid:
“Having enjoyed Toxic so much I wasn’t sure if Rancid would be as good, but it’s better! The even-more-developed characters from Toxic continue their incredible adventure along with a few new characters (not all human) and I found myself caught up in how each person would overcome their personal trap. The biggest mystery that starts at the beginning is carried throughout the book and I was truly unable to determine how it could possibly be solved! The message that this book conveys with what can turn rancid in our lives is all too timely in our current society. I highly recommend this book to anyone from age nine to ninety!” – Laurie Penner Review on Amazon
Praise for Bound:
“I think this story does a wonderful job of describing the battle between light and darkness that goes unseen in our world.” – Jane Winsell Review on Amazon
“I gave this book a five star rating. I loved how the author made it feel as if I were there watching this story happen in person. I would recommend this story to anyone, especially any missionary in the field. GREAT READ!” – Joni H. Review on Amazon
