REVISED Book Review: The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

Revised Review 04/15/2016: Well, I did not see that coming! I did finally finish reading this book and although the beginning was building up to what I thought was going to be very interesting it just really wasn’t. The book took a turn for the anticlimactic. That’s all it became for me. I did continue to enjoy the characters and the relationship between Cedric and Adelaide was nice but the witty dialoguing […]

Oracle’s Moon by Thea Harrison

Grace Andreas was introduced as the Oracle in the previous book in the series, Serpent’s Kiss. The last book ends with Kahlil, Demonkind and Djinn Prince of House Marid, agreeing to watch over Grace’s young kiddos. Being that he is a Djinn, agreeing to watch over the children is doing Grace a favor! In case you do not understand, a djinn’s currency is favors, and he gave a favor without […]

After a Fashion by Jen Turano

This is the first book in a new series A Class of Their Own. This is a Christian romantic comedy but it has sarcasm and I love sarcasm and some hey now, pre-martial kissing, ooh la la…so risqué! It is a cute book and although there is the faith element it is not so over powering that it would offend non-believers. From the start of this book I am loving […]

Blackbeard’s Revenge by Jeremy McLean

We start out with Edward Thatch aka Blackbeard having been imprisoned for a year; a year in a dungeon without sun, the ocean or his love, Anne. As you can imagine things are a bit grim for Edward but then the tide turns. A jailbreak! Well written and devised this scene starts the book with the action you would expect from a rowdy crew of buccaneers and the action does […]

Deep Six by D.P. Lyle

Review: The story starts with the main character Jake Longly on a stakeout, when his psychotic ex-girlfriend decides that he must be stalking her and smashes two of his vehicles windows in. Nice start to the book. Jake and his father, Ray, have a strained relationship and Jake only decided to help out Ray because this request came with a ‘please’ attached to it. Thinking this is going to be […]

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

This is a historical fiction novel set in the late 1400’s and the political atmosphere is nothing short of a powder keg. The setting is in Brittany surrounding a Duchess who at the tender age of twelve has been promised to more than one royal as her father the Duke was seeking any allies who would assist him with deflecting the assault being led by France. Unfortunately the Duke died, […]

Starflight by Melissa Landers

I have had this book since it was released but I had put off reading it. Why? Mainly because I had my fill of teen romances and was ugh with it all. I know I shouldn’t hate, and they are 18 which is a full two years older than most YA characters but still, I did not have any real desire to pick it up. I was a fool. This […]

Ever feel like you have super skills? Example, that you are stronger than you really are?  Hmmm, I think the caption on this picture is only so true. Let me explain where this is going. The wolf is badass! Look at it, everything i think I represent—in my fantasy world!! 🙄 I love fantasy books because everyone is so talented and make their skills seem believable. You know what I am […]

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro

Just like the title of the book, the focus of this story is Charlotte Holmes, a descendent of the great Sherlock Holmes. This is told through the voice of James/Jamie Watson, also as you guessed a descendent of Dr. John Watson. The story unfolds at the prep school of Sherringford located in Connecticut. Although both main characters are from London, they are at this setting for different reasons. Watson is […]

The Book of Esther by Emily Barton

When I requested this book I liked the summary. What I did not realize is that it is deeply entrenched with Jewish culture and tradition and written for a Jewish audience, or at least an audience familiar with Judaism. For me, I found it hard to keep my interest with this book because I spent a lot of time re-reading and researching terms so that I could better understand. So […]

Feverborn by Karen Marie Moning

*Warning: This review includes a rant from an annoyed fan 😡* Did you ever love a series and it lets you down? Ugh! I am a fan of Karen Marie Moning and I have thus far enjoyed the Fever series with the exception of the Dani O’Malley character. Can you hear that? That is the sound of me letting go of a series. After barely making it through this book, I […]

Who is the Genre Minx?

It been about 1 1/2 months since I started blogging my book reviews and it has been a learning process for me. So thank you for all who have been there since the beginning. I do appreciate your presence and continued interest. I thought I would take a moment and tell you about me and why I started writing book reviews. If you are not the curious sort, then stop reading […]

The Devil’s Evidence by Simon Kurt Unsworth

Interested in reading an urban fantasy novel about a detective in Hell? Then look no further. Which also begs the question: Hell has police? Who knew?! The world building that the author created is complex, dark, savage, and filled with horrendous demons. If you could imagine Hell, the characters that the Author created would give you pause. It would also cause you to despair because there is no happy ending […]

Lost and Gone Forever by Alex Grecian

“He woke in the dark and saw that his cell door was open. Just a crack, but lamplight shone through and into the room. He lay on his cot and watched that chink of yellow through his shivering eyelashes. But the door didn’t open any farther and the man—the man Jack—didn’t enter the room. Had Jack forgotten to latch the door after his last visit? Or was he waiting to […]

Ultimate Surrender by Jennifer Kacey

“‘Worst wingman ever. Bros before hoe—’ ‘If you dare finish that sentence, Campbell, you are going to wear the rest of your drink.’ Her voice. So sweet. Reminded him of the sirens in the Odyssey. Sounded awesome. Then everybody died.” The first few chapters are a bit tough because there are references between the characters that are a tieback to the first book in this series but after you get […]

Burned by Benedict Jacka

Ready, Set Go!! From the start of this book Alex Verus is under the gun. I love the title of this book, “Burned,” because it does truly sum up the events of the story. He is burned literally, receives a “burn notice,” and is burned through betrayal. The story starts out with a kill order from the Council, ok that’s bad. Let us add on that is going to include […]

The Devil’s Serenade by Catherine Cavendish

This story has a very alpha and omega theme to me. Everything begins and ends with Nathaniel Hargest. He is as evil as the day is long. If you enjoy reading horror stories with suspense and without the immense gore, then this book is for you. It has a twisting turning story line that does truly keep you guessing. It has a few twisted characters that are satanic in nature. […]

“”You need not worry. It will take time, but you will learn how to be a strong and powerful Oracle,” Maiden said. “Time?” Mother sneered. “She says the word as if there is not a curse and a multitude of evil pressing down upon us.”” In the second book of The Escaped series, the story picks up where book one left off. Maiden, one of Alek’s three mothers, takes Eva […]
