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

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. […]

Scarlet Rain by Kristin Cast

“”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 […]

Novella Review: Skinshaper by Mark Gelineau

“She shut her eyes as they dragged the screaming man back into the mine. Then all was silent. The woman didn’t cry. She just sat still and waited for her turn to die.” In the second novella of the “Rend the Dark” series, which is part of the “Echoes of the Ascended” series, Riffolk, Ferran and Mireia travel deeper into the northern wilderness in search of the newest Ruin (ancient […]

Or I will not have you at all.” You go girl! Inej, best wraith ever!

Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer

When I tagged the book to read I thought it was going to be a new adult book about solving a crime. What is it really about? Thomas and Charlotte in a Romeo and Juliet style love affair that revolves around a crime. The book is solidly written. The dialogue is in 2 different point of views, so it has some witty things happening there. All the characters involved are […]

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Review: Love the camaraderie between the main characters Safi and Iseult. They are both badass and loyal – two qualities that I enjoy in strong female leads. The story starts off running and the action does not stop. The characters are all well developed and believable. The story is woven very well and the “witcheries” are explained and demonstrated so you will not find yourself being lost or confused. When […]

The Siren by Kiera Cass

Review: I did enjoy this story. Kahlen as a main character was a bit annoying for me in the beginning. I had to keep in mind that she was 19 years old when she became a siren and that she was stuck in that naïveté, but at the same time she was more mature in other areas. The relationships that the author created between the siren sisters was special and […]

Rise of the Wolf by Jennifer A. Nielsen

When I read “Mark of the Thief” I was not necessarily in love with the book. This book….definitely an improvement. Review: I did enjoy this book from the start. The plot twists keep coming and I found that it was indeed a page turner. I thought that this time Nic was becoming more sure of himself and was starting to see himself as more than just a slave. You start […]

Mark of Blood and Alchemy by Evangeline Denmark

This novella did give me an understanding of how the “Defenders” came to be, it explained the extended life of the Defenders and it gave you an understanding of where the idea of the dolls came from. I found that the writing again left holes for me, that was the same issue I had with my review of “Curio.” I found my self annoyed with Olan because he is so […]

The Hunters by Chris Kuzneski

I have been wanting to read this book for sometime now and with a movie deal in the works…I wanted to read it before the movie came out. So I got my hands on a copy and here are my thoughts on it. I do like the action-adventure genre. I thought this book was good but not great. The writing was well done. He did a great job of researching […]

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

When I first read this book it reminded me so much of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale that I had a hard time separating the two. Sometimes when I am reading a book that reminds me so much of another book I get annoyed and initially that is how I felt with this book. After I read it though I kept thinking about it and read it again. Then […]
