Lucas, the Warrior of the Rainbow
The F in life is for Fate. It's what prevents life from being a lie.
Promised to be given away by his father in exchange for riches, Lucas tried avoiding getting married to a Mynx (a female magical creature with seductive powers). He soon realized that his destiny was already written. All of the sudden turns of events in his life brought him to believe that he was chosen to save the earth from one of the greatest evil that ever existed. Brave enough to accept the challenge, he will have to be proven honorable and wise if he wants to save the woman he loves as well as his family. The chosen one knows that he has unimaginable powers, but can he save the earth and his loved ones? What if he was engaged in a battle which he might not be able to win?
Love is Alive
Reviewed by Karen P. for Readers Favorite
James Josue is a poet by choice and a musician by profession. In Love is Alive, he has bared his soul and spoken to readers about the common and the non-so-common elements of love. He invites his readers to find their places in the sun, wherever they may be, and to then explore what can be freely offered. One of my favorites of the ninety-four short poems is 'Bliss Comes From Within' in which the author challenges you to look within yourself and to "show your alacrity to live your life";
Some of the charms of the poetry come from its simplicity of thought. The experiences of love are common to all who seek it and to all who dare to hold out their hands to invite love in. There is the agony of 'being dumped'; along with the ecstasy of daring to feel and experience a deep love with another person while baring all your faults and insecurities to one person who has the power to hurt you simply by rejecting you. And then, there is the wonderful acuity of the senses when one is in love. The author speaks of flu-like symptoms that overtake the lovestruck. It becomes evident that there is a lot of the person in the words of the poems and this is a very difficult kind of self-confession. There is a certain courage in those willing to peel back the layers of joy and failure and put it out for all to judge.
