Mailbox Monday 9th July 2012



Mailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week.

Be warned that Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.


Mailbox Monday, is currently ‘on tour’ and being hosted by a different blogger each month.
Your host for July 2012 is …
So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Jennifer, after all, we all like to receive them!

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!



When Stewart and Layla recruit a demon to spy on the Devil, their decision takes them on whirlwind ride through the afterlife. Journey alongside this young couple in H. A. Goodman’s new novel, Breaking the Devil’s Heart, and join forces with a teenage Angel outcast to bankrupt Satan’s underground Company and save Heaven from civil war. H. A. Goodman’s Breaking the Devil’s Heart is a rollercoaster afterlife experience that tests a young couple’s love, their grasp on reality, and the essence of human nature. What happens when Stewart and Layla tour Hell’s Marketing Department and Stock Exchange? What happens when their relationship is tested by Satan? This book is unlike anything you’ve ever read, or ever thought the afterlife might be like. Breaking the Devil’s Heart is an enlightening look into an alternate world, a new afterlife, and a profound journey inside the human conscience.


Wow! I need my sunglasses on to look at that amazing cover, definitely shouldn’t be doing this first thing in the morning after a glass of wine last night!!


This is H.A’s second book in ‘A Logic Of Demons’ series and as I have not read its predecessor ‘Logic of Demons: The Quest for Nadine’s Soul’, I am hoping that ‘Breaking The Devil’s Heart: A Logic of Demons Novel’, is going to work for me as a stand-alone novel.


Fantasy, is also not a genre that I have explored in any great depth, so I am hoping that this strong storyline, which seems to challenge the very essence and conscience of human nature in the afterlife, is going to endear me to the genre more fully.


This contemporary fiction novel was gifted as a kindle download request for me to read and leave my comments about, by its author H.A. Goodman, and as such was free of charge.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments will be my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • Hi Mystica,

      Fantasy is not one of my strongest genres, but I took this one on as an author review, as I just got hooked by that quirky synopsis.

      I really hope that it is going to work as a stand alone, as I haven’t read the first book in the series.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.

    • Hi Harvee,

      That cover is certainly eye-catching, isn’t it? I am just wondering what the person ‘was on’, when they came up with the design and colour scheme!!

      I guess that a tour around ‘Hell’s Stock Exchange’, would be pretty much the same as a tour around any Stock Exchange in the World right now !!!

      Perhaps they will be able to find out whether the bank has hidden my money in hell, ‘coz they certainly don’t have it in my account any more!!

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always valued and appreciated.

    • Hi Vicki,

      This one is really going to stretch me I think and is probably much further away from my usual genres than anything I have ever tried.

      Still, I like to approach books with an open mind and the synopsis did make me very curious.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi Jessica,

      It really is an eye-catching cover, isn’t it?

      This is the second book in the ‘Logic Of Demons’ series and this cover couldn’t be more different from that of the first story, I was really surprised when I checked them both out.

      Thanks for stopping by, I love to receive comments and I appreciate them all.

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I think that unless you really enjoy your fantasy, you probably wouldn’t have come across this one before.

      It certainly isn’t a title or cover which would have attracted me if I had seen it in a bookstore, the synopsis is very intriguing however, so I am really looking forward to reading it.

      Thanks for visiting your participants in the Mailbox Monday meme, the thought is much appreciated.

    • Hi Kathy,

      I have only really ever read one fantasy novel, before this one came along, and that one I enjoyed. So I am willing to give this one a try, purely for the interesting sounding synopsis, although I have to admit that the reviews it has received have been quite mixed in their ratings.

      Thanks for stopping by, your comments are always valued.

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      I can safely say that this is just about the most esoteric cover that I have ever come across.

      I am hoping that once I get into the story, the correlation between story and cover art will become apparent.

      Thanks for stopping by, your visits are always welcome and appreciated.

    • Hi Connie,

      Thanks for stopping by Fiction Books this week. It is always good to ‘meet’ new people and I do love a good chat!

      If the synopsis hadn’t sounded quite so intriguing, I don’t think I would have taken this one on for review, so I am hoping that my judgement is good enough to make this an enjoyable read.

      Your comments will always be welcome and appreciated here.

    • Hi Mary,

      I am not generally a fantasy reader, however I am always up for trying something new, so I am willing to give this one a chance.

      Thanks for stopping by, it is good to hear from you.

    • Hi Beth,

      I guess that if a good cover artist can grab your attention, then that is half the battle.

      A good intriguing synopsis like this one, is then all it takes to arouse the reader’s interest.

      Thanks for your comments, they are always welcome and appreciated

    • Hi Cath,

      This book is still some way down my reading schedule, as I try to carry out author review requests in strict order of when they were received, but I will certainly let you know when the review is up and published.

      The first book in the series ‘Logic Of Demons, The Quest For Nadine’s Soul’, has received some great reviews and this is also on my radar for sometime in the future.

      Thanks for stopping by, great to have your comments back on the boards, they are always appreciated.

    • Hi Naida,

      It is very ‘arresting’, isn’t it? Although I am still trying to make my mind up whether or not it is also a little ‘spooky’. I suppose that as we are talking about the after-life, Satan and Hell, then it isn’t really going to be too out of place in the context of the story, it all looks a bit ‘fire and brimstone’ really.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, I always look forward to your visits.
