Blog Tour Stop: Black Madonna: The Pope’s Deadly Obsession by L. Lee Kane

What do you get when you cross The DaVinci Code and The Knight’s Templar? Black Madonna by L. Lee Kane

Synopsis

Luci de Foix was nine when her parents were killed in a car accident. But was it an accident? Unbeknownst to Luci, a group known as The Order, under the protection of the Pope, has been watching her family for many years, waiting fo the day that a diary written in the thirteenth century would be delivered to her family – a journal that contains a key to a lost codex – and they would do anything to get it. Early one morning, when Luci is twenty-nine, a bloodied young man delivers a book, claiming it’s from her late grandparents.

Plagued by panic attacks that have left her crippled, Luci struggles to overcome her fears, avenge the death of her family, and search for the lost codex. But who can she trust? Everyone seems intent on betraying her, even the gorgeous, enigmatic Max, a man with secrets of his own.

You should know by now that I love anything with drama and adventure, with some mystery and suspense mixed in. I truly enjoyed reading Black Madonna as it introduces you to the main character, Luci, as a child, and how she became who she in the present. It introduces you to characters from her childhood, and how everyone is linked today.

I just love how the book is written. Not too much detail, but it still gives you that feeling of being there, like you are a fly on the wall.

I give Black Madonna 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for the story, the atmosphere it presents, and the fact that it held my attention in this hard time that I have been through the last couple of weeks. I enjoyed it, and I recommend to you.

White Witch of Hartford by J. Spencer Bryant

I really do not know what to say about this book, but to say that I am thrown off.

Synopsis

Contrary to some disbelief, witches and warlocks do exist. Although certain psychics phenomena have been proven to exist, yet it is still not believed by many who choose not to think about such things.

This story is not similar to Harry Potter who deals with wizards and sorcerer’s stones, but rather of a real witch with whom the author became involved through no fault of his own, other than though stressful circumstances at the time. The phrase often mentioned in the story, “there is no way out for you or me” haunted the author then and still does to this day.

Meet Madam T’umphie, a witch that came to this world on a special mission from her called Seker, and met with a fate that couldn’t be tolerated by her god, in that she had fallen in love with a mortal man. Send from the “nether world,” Madam T’umphie enjoyed toying with humans she disliked, often destroying them to the dismay of many people.

Kept secret for 25 years until now, the author recalls his harrowing experiences of becoming a supernatural pawn of a capricious spirit-being as she leads him into the unbelievable world of the paranormal.

This book is dark and mysterious. I love witches, and this one takes the cake. I don’t know if I like or hate it, to be honest. You have the main character that goes by the name of “Chef”, and a mysterious woman who is after Chef’s ex-wife’s husband (or boyfriend?), Bobbie. Bobbie has the amulet that Madam T is after. And Madam T uses Chef to get that amulet. And he gets a gift in return, anything he wants. He decides to have a powerful . . . Manhood. I know, right?

Anyways, while reading this book, with the synopsis in my head, I am thinking to myself “this cannot be real”. “Maybe this is some way the author is exaggerating a story?” Then I remembered, it’s just a story, just like the other books that make you think it’s real, but isn’t . . . Or is it?

The book could have gone great without certain descriptions, scenarios, and even some words. Words I cannot even repeat. And there are very few.

I give White Witch of Hartford 3 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ because like I said, I don’t know if I like the book, or I dislike it. The story itself is great, but the way it was written, was kind of . . . Confusing. Check it out, and let me know what you think.
