Exodus ’95 by Kfir Luzzatto

Exodus ‘95 has the main protagonists searching for a long lost religious relic of significance but this is not a “religious” book. It is actually a thriller that takes you on a ride filled with espionage, murder and betrayal. This is a fast-paced story that will entertain you from start to finish. Claire Williams is an ordinary woman who happens to befriend a lonely old man named Jack. Jack is […]

Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

My Review:  Amazing, chilling, and heartbreaking! By the end of Cage of Darkness, I was just shaking my fist at the sky! This was my actual response “For the love! For the freaking love! I can’t even! When is the next book out?! So many emotions right now. For the love.” That was over two weeks ago and I am still shaking my head. I want a do-over on that ending, […]

Myths of Mish by Katie Hamstead

I am not usually a fairytale reader but I do enjoy reading the Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles. I love the idea of a story evolving from the ending of a famous fairytale. Even better is that the characters have their struggles from what they endured previously. I am always excited to see where the story goes. 😉 Hansel and Gretel’s tale of horror with the witch in the woods is a […]

Cage of Deceit by Jennifer Anne Davis

I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah! I was one of the lucky bloggers and […]

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Daughter of the Pirate King was a book I knew I had to read. I love anything pirates and bonus, female pirate protagonist, yep a must read. My reason for being unsure was whether or not I was going to like this story due to the age of Alosa. I wasn’t sure how believable her character at seventeen was going to come across as a pirate captain. Turns out I had […]

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

To say that I am a fan of the Mercy Thompson series is really an understatement. I have read every book and that actually makes me potentially a great critic. Where other series can start to get stale or predictable this series has remained strong! Silence Fallen steered away from the formula and gave us new features to look forward to in future installments. Fan-tast-ic! Mercy is back and this time […]


The Dark Companions by M.A. Kassel

The Dark Companions by M.A. Kassel

Let’s start by saying that this story involves children but I do not think it is meant for young readers. Heck, maybe not even some teens. It is a dark fantasy and the characters are not interested in good versus evil. There is very little good. Even the main character of Sid is not wholly good. I did however truly appreciate his love for his sister. The entire plot about […]

The Changing by Eric Buffington

War is on the horizon and it is up to the people of Denall to band together to stop Mordyar and his supporters. Since book one, this story has been about Mordyar’s quest to bring about the prophecy that is connected to the six stones of power. He has developed alliances, put plans into motion and had his followers do all his dirty work in order to pave the path […]

Firestorm by Donna Grant

Firestorm is the tenth book in the Dark Kings series. The story takes place in various areas of Scotland. It also means that most of the Kings including Dimitri speaks with a Scottish accent. It is verra, verra good and makes his character a bit more swoon-worthy. The Kings are dragons that existed on Earth before mankind and through poor judgement on their part swore to provide protection for humankind. I […]

Wucaii by Pembroke Sinclair

This was a very original story. When I read the synopsis about a dragon hybrid I was intrigued. This story focuses on Aelana’s return to her home planet after a five-hundred-year absence. She is very conflicted about this return. She wonders if her sacrifice has been remembered by those that she left behind. Or will they just remember her as the monster they thought she was. We learn about Aelana’s […]

Taming a Laird’s Wild Lady by Tammy Andresen

I was very excited to get my hands on this book. When I read the previous installment in this series, Taming a Duke’s Wild Rose, I was introduced to the character of Elizabeth “Isla” Maddox. Even better was that there was a sneak peek of this story in the back of that book! I was hooked and snapped at the chance to read this story as soon as possible. Daring, […]

Reckless Creed by Alex Kava

I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Ryder Creed. It made me very excited to get this book into my hands and see where things had gone with Ryder and his dogs. What I was not expecting was a thriller that brushes against a reality that is so terrifying. It is one of those situations that could be potentially happening now. I haven’t read a book that […]

The Dead Seekers by Barb & J.C. Hendee

Dark, intriguing and a real page turner! I enjoyed this story immensely and did not want to put this story down. Throughout this tale you are given just enough information to form a plausible assessment of the situation but are left with enough doubt that it draws you into the story because you just have to know what is going on! It was a fantastic spirit hunt from beginning to […]

Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

This book did not start on a high note for me. I have read and reviewed the first book in the series and I loved it, adored it and still do. When I started this book, I was all sorts of excited to see how the story was going to continue. It starts off shortly after the conclusion of book one and the opening scene is Griffin throwing the biggest […]

Terrific Tuesday Post from 09/13/2016 Now that I have more time to read what I want to; I am breaking out the Terrific Tuesdays books that I had previously bought. Yes, I actually buy all my Terrific Tuesday book posts, hmmm now getting time to read them is a bit more of a challenge. I have an entire bookshelf full of my TT books to read, just staring at me […]

Secrets at the Keep by Eric Buffington

I enjoyed this story as much as I did the previous book, The Troven. This story picks up where the previous book left off and it has continued to serve up action and adventure at every turn. We delve further into the mystery of the six magical stones called the stones of power and follow the stories of the surviving members from the first book. What I liked about this […]

Eat, Pray, Die by Chelsea Field

“Almost daily, another celebrity or political figure is in the news for doing something stupid under the influence. Sometimes they sabotage their own careers. Sometimes it’s the last thing they ever do – a fatal drug overdose. The general public take the stories at face value, as I had until a few months ago. Now I knew better. The climb to power and fortune is a war zone and poison […]

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

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 […]
