Review: The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter

I read The Wicked Vampire with the mind frame of it being a stand-alone romance. It is the sixth book in the Last True Vampire series though and there is an overarching storyline the flows through this story as well as a romance between Sasha Ivanov and Liam Brún. I did not feel lost at any point in my reading of The Wicked Vampire. The Author does a great job […]

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: The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

I truly enjoyed the prequel to this book, The Bear and the Nightingale, but this book, The Girl in the Tower, just took my breath away! I actually enjoyed it so much more!! Despite my love for this story, I could have done without like the whole disguise yourself as another gender trope. I always know it is going to end badly so I just spend most of the time […]

Review: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy

The Edge of the Blade is the second book in The Uncharted Realms series as well as the fifth book in The Twelve Kingdoms series. The Uncharted Realms series is a spin off from The Twelve Kingdoms series and it takes place after magic has broken free over the Twelve Kingdoms. I would recommend reading the first three books in the Kingdoms series before starting the first book in the […]

Review with Excerpt: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter

Flame in the Dark was such a fun read for me! I love the paranormal investigation team PSYLed Unit 18 and in this story, they are back and in full swing. This story starts out smack dab in the middle of an investigation. There had just been a shooting at a senator’s house and Nell is cutting her teeth as a full-fledged probationary paranormal investigator. Nell is officially done with […]

Review & Giveaway: The Chosen Knights by Mary Ting

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: The Chosen Knights is the first full book in The Angel Knights series but there is a novella, called The Angel Knights, that is highly suggested to be read first. It gives some background information into the parents of the main characters in The Chosen Knights as well as some historical information pertaining to the series itself. It […]

Review: Tall, Dark & Deadly by Kharma Kelley

Tall, Dark & Deadly is the first book in the Agents of the Bureau series and it was a fun and sizzling read with a fast-paced plot. Chloë Hunter was a Dhampir, an unusual hybrid with all the strengths of a vampire but none of their weaknesses. For many years she had run with a bad crowd and had ended up on the wrong side of the law. After being […]

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. […]

At the start of the story Guilhelm is a twelve-year-old boy who was out hunting with his friend and came across a fairy who he thought might have been already dead.

Review: Semi-Sane by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Sane is the fifth and final book in the Harper Hall Investigations series which has been an AMAZING series! I have completely adored each and every book in this series and Semi-Sane was no exception. In this installment, the focus is on Dr. Violet Marchand and bad boy Nikolai Aleyev. The story between these two characters was introduced in the previous book, Semi-Broken, and I would recommend that you read […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Twisted by Isabel Jordan

Yay that another installment in this series has entertained and endeared me to this series! The third in any series is usually a nice indicator of how a series is going to progress, and I was thrilled not to be bored or let down! With love, humor, romance, sexy times, and pregnancy hormones…how can this story go wrong? It did not! Back is my favorite cast of characters but the focus […]

Mini-Review: Semi-Human by Isabel Jordan

Ok, it needs to be said: I LOVE THIS BOOK! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this story! The main character Harper is just amazing to me. She is witty, sexy, and really feisty. She takes no crap from anyone and has no fear! I just love this character. A year has passed, Noah and Harper have become affianced and are heading to Las Vegas to elope. Anything […]

Review: Heart of the Fae by Emma Hamm

This story, Heart of the Fae, has my heart completely and utterly. This was such a delightful story! If you love any rendition of the Beauty and the Beast story then this is a story you will absolutely love. Especially if you are fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses, because the main character of this story reminds me of a broody Tamlin. Except in this story Eamonn has […]

Review: The Panther’s Lost Princess by McKenna Dean

In The Panther’s Lost Princess, Ellie West was a small-town waitress with big time dreams. Her life had never been an easy one but she was doing what she could to achieve her goals. She always knew that there was something different about her but she never wanted to look too deeply within herself to explore her differences. She was afraid of what she would find and all she wanted […]

Review & Giveaway: Veiled by Stacey Rourke

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** At the start of Veiled I was curious how the main character, Vincenza Larow, was going to be forged into an unstoppable weapon. I liked that her metamorphosis was something that had already been in the making but that she essentially got the short straw because of the trauma that she endured. I also appreciated that for Vinx […]

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 Short Story Collection: Deadman’s Tome Final Contact

Deadman’s Tome Final Contact is a collection of eight short stories that all fit nicely into the science fiction genre. Each story is independent of each other but share the common theme of finality. For a sampling of what to expect you can look forward to space exploration, aggressive aliens, asteroid mining, wormholes, children being used as vessels, alien octopods, and echoes of a past revisited. As you can see […]

I gave Chosen a five-star rating because for me it gave me all sorts of feels. Feelings like horrified, grossed out, stricken just to name a few, and the ending was as a horror […]
