Review: Land of the Free by Michael W. Huard

  Review: Land of the Free is a futuristic dystopian fantasy filled with kick-butt heroines, villains, intelligent robots, and the never-ending desire to throw off the shackles of tyranny. The setting is in the year 3016 where the world has been ravaged by a series of wars that has significantly decreased the human population, essentially destroying the middle class, dividing the humans between the rich and the oppressed. Under the […]

Review: Mission: Improper by Bec McMaster

Oh my, oh my, I love this book, Mission: Improper, and I am beyond excited about reading the rest of this series! The London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy series is set in the same world as the Author’s London Steampunk series and I will admit that, for this story, I was referring back to the original series in order to refresh my memory as to who the characters in […]

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: The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley

The Emperor’s Blades is a rich and engrossing tale that is told from the perspectives of the Emperor’s children, Kayden, Valyn, and Adare. The story starts with the Emperor having been murdered and leaving the Annurian Empire in turmoil. The next Emperor, Kaden, was living in a distant land that would takes months to reach. Kaden may be the next emperor but he knows little to nothing about running an […]

Review: Fluency by Jennifer Foehner Wells

I read this book, Fluency, as part of my book club reading for my local library book club. I was exciting to read this book because of the fact that it was a science fiction based book and had a lead heroine. I soon found that there were parts about the story that I really enjoyed and parts that I wished had been done differently. What I found most fascinating […]

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: The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell

The Romanov Ransom is the ninth book in the Fargo Adventure series and it is co-written with Robin Burcell. I will say that I do enjoy the pairing of Cussler and Burcell! The story is very well developed and I enjoyed the many location that this story takes us to. From the title, you would presume that this story is set around the Romanov family and set in Russia but this […]

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: Mischief in Mudbug by Jana Deleon

I am a huge fan of Author Jana Deleon’s cozy mysteries. Mischief in Mudbug was no exception. Sabine’s character was introduced in book one of this series and I liked her immensely. In this story, things take a turn for the worst for Sabine’s character and even though she had failed to find any family members over the past decade, she really needs to now. Sabine has had health scares […]

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. […]

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: Flamingo Road by Sasscer Hill

I bought Flamingo Road a few months past because it looked like an interesting book. I was intrigued that it revolved around crime, horses, and the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. The TRPB is a real agency, which I knew absolutely nothing about before I read this book. If you want to check it out here is a LINK to the home page of the organization. Pretty cool, right? Fia McKee […]
