Nice reviews are great, but they’re even better when someone discovers one of your earlier books and ends up really enjoying it. This made both Anyta and I smile. 🙂



SUMMARY: Jay Walker has two wishes: to perform the play of his dreams alongside his best friend at Wellington’s Downstage Theatre, and to meet that special someone. Someone he’d go to the ends of the earth for. Someone who might only exist in fairy tales.

When Jay meets accordion busker Lethe Cross, it’s like living a dream come true. Lethe’s music captivates Jay, and he resolves to meet the man who plays so beautifully. But then he discovers Lethe’s life is more like a nightmare. The phrase “down on his luck” can’t begin to cover it. Determined to help, Jay does some snooping for answers-and winds up on the wrong end of a centuries-old curse. The good news is there’s a way to break it. The bad news is it might cost Jay his life.

Let me start off by saying that I don’t normally go for paranormal romances…

Mrs. Condit & Friends Read Books – Review of Purpose

Posted by Lucky on July 25, 2013

Someone died tonight. An innocent. Someone who should have lived. I felt their death. I feel the innocents who die. They call out for vengeance.

RATING: 5 Sweet Peas!

“This is the beginning of an incredible adventure from the mind of Andrew Q. Gordon, who I first met when I did the review for (Un)Masked where he teamed up with Anyta Sunday. The blurb grabbed me and held me tight. The story did the same.”

5 Stars


When I was 2/3 of the way through this book, if you had asked me what I thought of it, I would have said it was a very nicely written character driven novel. The focus was primarily on the two MCs and their developing relationship. Ryan is down on his luck; thrown out on the streets by his family because he’s gay. Gar (Will) saves Ryan from street thugs intent on robbing and killing him. Gar has never intervened in a crime in progress before… his usual gig is seeking vengeance for the dead… the innocent. Ryan captivates him; reminds him of David, his dead lover from 40 years ago… prior to the Purpose. The Purpose normally creates chaos in Gar’s mind, but somehow Ryan calms it; quiets it. Gar still feels the pull of the innocent, but the compulsion to act is gone. He struggles to determine what this means.

The story of this budding relationship, in and of itself, is a great story. Ryan feeds (and reawakens) Will’s soul… gives him back his feelings and emotions. And Will gives Ryan acceptance and a sense of belonging; something that has been taken from him when his family kicked him out. And both are trying to figure out how the Purpose fits into their lives.

Ohhh, but that’s not the end of the story. For at this point, the plot takes over… grabs you around the neck and slams you into the rollercoaster for the rest of the ride. There are twists and there are turns. First you convince yourself the story will end one way, but no it won’t end like that at all…will it?? Eh, you’ll just have to read it yourself.

Very nicely done, Andrew. This will go on my Favorites shelf.

“This is one of the most original books I’ve ever read. I don’t think I’ve read anything quite like this before.”

“It’s a gritty, sometimes dark story, but always gripping and you keep reading wanting to know what happens next. I don’t want to say too much else in case I spoil it, but it was a wonderful, engaging read.”

Review:  I really loved everything about this book from the storyline to the characters to the dialogue.

Mr. Gordon has a gift for descriptiveness that I greatly enjoyed.  I think my favorite is the endless pocket – regarding which I have just one question: Where can I find one outside of the book? happy I also like the idea behind Haven, if not the need within the world Mr. Gordon created.

“This was a wonderful, romantic adventure tale. This is epic fantasy at its best. The reader is thrust straight into the action, as one of the first scenes is Farrell going to help at the request of the unicorns and during the battle he meets his mate, the one who the gods have chosen for him. Miceral is one of the Muchari, immortal warriors – I suppose something like elves, but there are no pointy ears here.”

Sid is an author – his first book is due in July from RFP and an aspiring book critic. If you get a chance check out his site and his work.

Sid Love

the-last-grandmaster-coverAn evil Wizard – the King of Zorgon – threatens Nendor and the Seven Kingdoms with the dark magic he has unleashed. One by one, he attacks each kingdom making his intentions clear – to conquer the whole of Nendor.

Prince Farrell of Haven, being the last surviving Grand Master, is destined to face him in future. He is handsome and his powers know no boundaries. When Meglar’s forces attacks a neighboring kingdom, he is summoned by one of the avatars of their Gods – one that he couldn’t deny – not after being told that he would meet his soulmate while on his quest.

So, alongwith Nerti – the honorable Queen of unicorns, Farrell goes off to save lives and there begins the terrifying, yet very interesting journey of The Last Grand Master!

I have no words to describe how much this book has impressed me. Coming from the author…
