Review: The Razvak Hunter by Arel B. Hunter

The Razvak Hunter in the simplest terms is about dark creatures versus light creatures and the battle between the two. This story was set in Vallenthar with the continent being split into Myrasia and Easia. The dark ones lived in Easia and the light ones lived in Myrasia. In this world, there had to be a division between the two because the dark beings and light beings were not able […]

Review: The Dragon Medallion by Alexa Whitewolf

An ancient prophecy about a boy and a girl that would come together and save the world from evil, sounds cool, right? Well, it really was. The Dragon Medallion combines many fun elements, such as dragons, ghosts, an ancient prophecy, an Egyptian god and goddess, and battles with long since departed Vikings. From the start of this book I was drawn in to the plot. I had so many questions […]

Review: The Heart of the Alchemist by Penny Wells

For the last three years Katie had wallowed in her misery after her break-up with the man she thought she would spend forever with. Although she knew that she was in a downward spiral she just couldn’t seem to care enough to do anything about it. I think she had untreated depression, honestly. When her ex suddenly showed up at her place of business, it was the catalyst that she […]

Review: Blackwing by Ed McDonald with Interview

Minx’s Musings: Grimdark fiction is a story set in a ruthless world where only the negative qualities of a character come through. There is really no happiness or very little hope for these characters. Noir fiction is where the characters are very tough, cynical, and pessimistic. Blackwing is grimdark noir with a dash of anti-hero. The setting for Blackwing is in a world that is blighted and deplorable. The Misery […]

Review: Gatekeepers by Sam Ferguson

Gatekeepers is the type of read that when you pick it up you find yourself caught up in the excitement until the end. I love reads that have creatures from other planets or dimensions and this story certainly delivered. Joshua Mills has had a rough go of things lately. After he was acquitted of patricide, had lost his wife and child to divorce, and was finally released from prison, all Joshua […]

Review: The Siren Chronicles by Douglas J. Sloan

I love to read stories about mermaids and sirens. So, when I had a chance to read The Siren Chronicles, I was all over it. The idea behind The Siren Chronicles was quite interesting. Three mermaids/sirens were to go on an Earthquest and hopefully be able to solve the question of why the mermaids and mermen were getting sick and dying before their time. Something was affecting their city, Oceanna, […]

The Story behind The Last Namsara In The Last Namsara, the main character Asha grew up being hated by her people. She was the daughter of the Dragon King, a princess, but it also was because of her that her city was burned, her mother was killed, and she was disfigured. It was because of her that the telling of stories became forbidden. For to tell a dragon a story […]

Review: The Spirit Mage by Layton Green

What an exciting continuation of the Blackwood Saga! The Spirit Mage picks up right after the continuation of The Brothers Three where we first met the brothers Will, Caleb, and Valjean Blackwood. Will was bequeathed a very powerful sword from his father but he was given little warning to the fact that this was a sword of power and many would kill to have it in their possession. Having recently […]

Review: Veiled Planet by Teagan Kearney

I absolutely love stories that are set in the future and on other worlds. In Veiled Planet, a space exploration vessel had been mapping the outer arm of the Eucleides galaxy and had come across a planet that met the threshold criteria for habitation. This planet, designated XL3198, had a species of hominids that lived in the northern continent of the planet. It was with this species, the Marut, that […]

Review: A Conspiracy in Belgravia by Sherry Thomas

I was enthralled with the idea of a female Sherlock Holmes and was beyond thrilled to get an advanced reader copy of A Conspiracy in Belgravia. This story is the second installment in the Lady Sherlock series and it was truly a fun read. The mystery was layered and oh so good! This story starts directly after the conclusion of the first book, A Study in Scarlet Women, and this […]

Review: Denai Storm by Tiffany Shand

Denai Storm is the third book of the Excalibar Investigation Series. This story starts out with action and it continues at a fast paced up until the end. I really enjoyed that Cate’s character started out strong. Her husband had been gone too long, where diplomacy  failed Cate was going to fill that gap. I really liked the team of enforcers that Cate has assembled over the previous two books. […]

Review: The Dollmaker of Krakow by R.M. Romero

The Dollmaker of Krakow is a beautiful story that parallels a country called The Land of Dolls with 1940’s Kraków, Poland. Karolina was living in the world where dolls come to rest after their doll bodies perish here on Earth. In that world, she was a seamstress who would sew wishes into each article of clothing that she made for her doll customers. At the start of the story she […]

In the near future space exploration has hit an all-time high and a large conglomerate has done something that no one else has before. Known as NASA’s dark little shadow, Babel Communications has successfully found a habitable planet referred to as Eden. Not only is this planet habitable but it is also populated by an alien species referred to as the Adamites. What draws the attention of this company though […]

Mini-Review: Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Taylor

Mini-Review: Thick as Thieves is the fifth book in The Queen’s Thief series. I really enjoyed the first four books in this series but this book was wildly different than the other four. This story is truly about the unlikely friendship that builds between Kamet and an Attolian. There is a small part where the Attolian King, aka Gen, plays a part and it is everything I would expect out […]

Mini-Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Mini-Review: Strange the Dreamer is an amazingly written book! If ever anyone needs an example of descriptive writing, this book is going to be my answer, every time. I am a fan of descriptive writing, I love to see the world, feel it, know it, but even for me this story was a bit much. As much as I appreciate that the author could describe the lighting of a single […]

Review: Odd & True by Cat Winters

Odd and True is brilliantly written! I was kept on the edge of my seat always wondering what was going to happen next, if the monsters were real or not. This story gave me the whole “what is hiding around the next corner” feeling. It was tantalizing to my spidey senses. When I chose to read this book, it was because I really wanted a fast and furious monster hunt […]

Stolen Wish by Jennifer Blackstream

The wait is over! STOLEN WISH, the fifth book in the Blood Realm Series is now available!  Review: Stolen Wish reminded me of Disney’s story of Aladdin but with a paranormal twist. Or maybe the story of Ali Baba with a twist. Either way, I do not know if that is what the Author was going for but it shared enough similarities that it was hard to miss, but then […]
