Cogling by Jordan Elizabeth Mierek

This is the second book I have read from author Jordan Elizabeth Mierek and she has such a talent for bringing the story to life. Her detailed writing never fails to surprise me. This is a steampunk inspired fantasy that was filled with action from beginning to end. Written for middle grade/young adult but is bound to delight readers of all ages. The idea behind the story is different and […]


Ice Crypt by Tiana Warner

Ice Crypt by Tiana Warner

Being a huge fan of mermaids and mermen I jumped on a chance to read this book and I was blown away by the writing, depth of characters and the world development. This story is told from the point of view of both Meela and Lysi, which is just wonderful because it really adds the emotional draw. The story starts out where it’s predecessor, Ice Massacre, left off. Meela has […]

Dragons Against Them by Kyra Jacobs

After reading the first book in this series, Dragons Among Them, I was eager to get my hands on the next installment as soon as possible and I was not disappointed! This story is mostly focused on Princess Rosalind and her deepest desire for revenge. Now, I was not in love with Rosalind from the last book but while reading this story I felt myself thawing towards her and in the […]

Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton

This is a new series from Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton that pairs an eccentric billionaire, Emerson Knight, with a rookie financial analyst, Riley Moon, together in a questionable investigation of missing gold. This investigation was a bit more of a heart pounding, run for your life type of investigation that would leave a few scratches, lead to some torture, and bring to light a scam hatched by a family […]


Benjamin Ashwood by A.C. Cobble

Benjamin Ashwood by A.C. Cobble

This story does indeed remind me of what I would consider a classic S&S (swords and sorcery) fantasy to be. From the beginning the action starts and it carries straight on through until the end. The main protagonist Ben has very little skills beyond what he would need for a simple life but when given an opportunity for something wild and greater than he could have ever expected he seizes […]


Pirates: The Golden Age of Piracy by Henry Freeman

Pirates: The Golden Age of Piracy by Henry Freeman

Let us start this review by stating that this is a summarizing history of piracy and the Golden Age of Piracy. This is not a fictional tale that has leading protagonists. This is a short book with many informational nuggets about piracy and I found the content to be a wonderful introduction about a person or persons that I may want to read about in more detail later. In the […]

Release and Catch by Emigh Cannaday

During the reading of this book I kept drawing parallels with two characters from the show Sex in the City. Maybe I am totally off because I can’t say I watched that show on a regular basis but I think if you took the character’s Samantha and Carrie and squished their personalities into one body you would have the main femme fatale, Sloane Spadowski. She narrates this story with humor, […]

Today I am privileged to bring to you an interview with Emigh Cannaday!  She is an Indie Author who has successfully written books in both the fantasy and contemporary genres.

The Silver Thread by Emigh Cannaday

This is the second book in The Annika Brisby series and I can say that I love this series! I went into this book expecting that the storyline would follow a predictable road given the cliffhanger from The Flame and the Arrow but this story was it’s own animal and was better than I ever expected! After being torn away from Eritahti, Talvi’s home world, through a portal Annika finds […]


Every Falling Star by Sungju Lee and Susan Elizabeth McClelland

Every Falling Star by Sungju Lee and Susan Elizabeth McClelland

This story paints a riveting and tragic story of a young man whose family was ripped apart by the political/socioeconomic environment of his country. North Korea had recently lost their trading partner and primary source of aid and this coupled with a series of weather anomalies manifested into the collapse of the central ration system. After the death of political leader Kim Il-Sung, the country plummeted into a famine that […]

The Secrets of Wishtide by Kate Saunders

Have you ever read David Copperfield by Charles Dickens? If you had and wished for some exploration on the characters or some slight differences in their outcomes then I whole-heartedly suggest you read this tale. If you have never read David Copperfield then no worries, if you like crime, mystery and suspense then I also suggest this book to you. This book is touted as a new crime series and […]

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

I have been waiting for this book to come out since April and it is finally in my hot little hands. It was so much more than I had hoped for. It has the steampunk elements that I adore. It has vampires, shape-shifters, mediums and humans with exceptional qualities. Loved it! This book for me is amazing; it felt like it had a blending of Jane Eyre, The Hound of […]

A Time of Torment by John Connolly

As my moniker implies I like to flirt across literary genres. I try to dip into mostly every kind of genre and I find I have not read a thriller in a few months. This book, A Time of Torment, hits that note as well as being part horror and part mystery all rolled up into one. I have not read a previous book in the Charlie Parker series and […]

The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

This is another follow-up to a book that made my Terrific Tuesday’s postings. I received the book The Scam as an ARC when it was re-printed by a new publisher. Before then I will honestly say that I had never read a book from either Janet Evanovich or Lee Goldberg (but I had watched the Monk television series that he was a screenwriter on). I absolutely loved The Scam and […]

The Mermaid’s Secret by Katie Schickel

Another one of the novels to hit my Terrific Tuesday’s posting was The Mermaid’s Secret by Katie Schickel. This book came on my radar because I have a weakness for stories about mermaids and mermen. What makes that weakness hilarious is that I do not go into oceans, no day dreaming while on a ship for me. Nonetheless I have a fascination and literature always provides for me, ha ha, […]
