Review: Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff

The struggle with being a book reviewer is how to convey my feelings about a book without spoilers. Trust me, sometimes the struggle is real 😉. With Godsgrave, there was so much going on from the start that not giving anything away was going to be hard. I think I figured out though: It was AMAZING, the end. There you go, spoiler free and everything. (Chuckles deviously) Alright, I am […]

Review: Captive Rebel by Erin McDermott

Captive Rebel is the first book in The Allegiance series and this series promises to be a fast-paced action-adventure with a heroine who will protect those she loves at all costs. In this dystopian world, the humans are clearly divided into two different factions. Their division was credited to the meddling of the Gods. The way the tales are told, Zeus and Poseidon had wanted to decrease the numbers of […]

Review: Winter’s Siren by Krystal Jane Ruin

Winter’s Siren is a dark fantasy that was both captivating and twisted. This story follows the narrative of two characters who are opposite in every way. Devi was born out of a union that was doomed from the start. Her mother met a tragic end at the hands of her father but Devi was spared, just barely, due to her innocence. Her father made it his life’s mission to find […]

Review: Obsidian and Stars by Julie Eshbaugh

Obsidian and Stars is the second book in the Ivory and Bone series. I did enjoy the first book, Ivory and Bone, but this book was much more enjoyable to me. The way the story is written is beautiful and detailed. The pacing is of a slower nature but I was okay with that because this story followed around a prehistoric clan and it just felt natural to me. From the […]

Review: Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Wonder Woman: Warbringer gave life to the character of Princess Diana! Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is but this story made her come alive for me. I found it just magnificent the amount of thought that was put into describing the Amazons and how they came to be. The world building was very detailed and I could clearly imagine the island of Themyscira and the warrior women who inhabited it. […]

Review: Prism by Nina Walker

Prism is a wonderfully engaging story that has magical realism mixed in with eastern influences. Set in a dystopian world where many societies have already collapsed, the New Colony Kingdom had thrived. This kingdom was rumored to have done so well due to the royal family’s guidance and the use of alchemy. Specifically, their use of color alchemy. Color alchemy was a rare talent that usually manifested itself when children […]

Review & Giveaway: Wolves and Roses by Christina Bauer

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: In Wolves and Roses, I found the idea of the characters being descended from either a shifter, a fairy, or a witch, and having to follow a fairy tale life template to be quite entertaining. Bryar Rose had been slated for a Sleeping Beauty template but since she had yet to fall into those expectations she had […]

Review: The Dragon Medallion by Alexa Whitewolf

An ancient prophecy about a boy and a girl that would come together and save the world from evil, sounds cool, right? Well, it really was. The Dragon Medallion combines many fun elements, such as dragons, ghosts, an ancient prophecy, an Egyptian god and goddess, and battles with long since departed Vikings. From the start of this book I was drawn in to the plot. I had so many questions […]

Review: Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

In Beasts Made of Night there is a sect of society called the aki. The aki are young people that at some point manifested the ability to eat sin. They are not able to call forth the sin, that is the job of the mages. The aki are not revered for their position, in fact they are little higher than slaves at the whim of the Mages who control them. […]

Review: The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West

I was excited to read The Secrets of Isalyne because it sounded exciting and it was some serious cover love! I absolutely loved the whole idea of the lumination trade. I loved it! It was so original!! Luminators had a special ability. They were able to take faded memories and restore them. Brighten them in the mind so that the person receiving the service could have faded memories restored to […]

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review: The Siren Chronicles by Douglas J. Sloan

I love to read stories about mermaids and sirens. So, when I had a chance to read The Siren Chronicles, I was all over it. The idea behind The Siren Chronicles was quite interesting. Three mermaids/sirens were to go on an Earthquest and hopefully be able to solve the question of why the mermaids and mermen were getting sick and dying before their time. Something was affecting their city, Oceanna, […]

Review: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

The Story behind The Last Namsara In The Last Namsara, the main character Asha grew up being hated by her people. She was the daughter of the Dragon King, a princess, but it also was because of her that her city was burned, her mother was killed, and she was disfigured. It was because of her that the telling of stories became forbidden. For to tell a dragon a story […]

Review: Veiled Planet by Teagan Kearney

I absolutely love stories that are set in the future and on other worlds. In Veiled Planet, a space exploration vessel had been mapping the outer arm of the Eucleides galaxy and had come across a planet that met the threshold criteria for habitation. This planet, designated XL3198, had a species of hominids that lived in the northern continent of the planet. It was with this species, the Marut, that […]

Review: The Dollmaker of Krakow by R.M. Romero

The Dollmaker of Krakow is a beautiful story that parallels a country called The Land of Dolls with 1940’s Kraków, Poland. Karolina was living in the world where dolls come to rest after their doll bodies perish here on Earth. In that world, she was a seamstress who would sew wishes into each article of clothing that she made for her doll customers. At the start of the story she […]
