***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.***   Review: In Trap and Trace, Navy Trent is your average everyday person. She works in the technology field, spends time with her friends, and has been planning to go on her dream vacation, a safari in Africa, with her closest friends Sara and Moss. There is no reason for her to be targeted for a kidnapping but […]

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 […]

The Sixth Gate by K.T. Munson

I recently read the prequel to The Sixth Gate, The Gate Guardian’s Daughter, and was pumped about reading this story. This is not a fantasy read that involves only two main characters, there is an expansive world development going on in this book. There are different worlds with its own race and guardians, as well as a Netherworld that has unbelievable creatures with its own royalty. Remarkable! The main story […]

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

I loved that The Last Dragon Rider starts out as a bedtime story told by a guardian to their child. I could clearly see the scene unfurling, the child asking for a story before bedtime the weary caretaker wanting nothing more than for the child to go to bed but can’t deny their enthusiastic pleas. After figuring that it would be easier to just tell the tale, the guardian starts […]

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

What a pleasurable read! The Epic Crush of Genie Lo is a book that would appeal to all readers. This story has it all, epic battles, good versus evil, romance, Chinese mythology, I could keep going on and on! This story was better than I ever expected, I just couldn’t get enough and I hope against hope that it will turn into a series!! Genie Lo is not your average […]

The Flame and the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

I was excited to read Flame in the Mist mainly because of the setting and that I enjoy the writing style of Author Renee Ahdieh. I utterly enjoyed her re-telling of One Thousand and One Nights and just had to get my hands on her newest creation. Flame and the Mist was slow to grab my interest and it was basically 50/50 for me. The first fifty percent was slow […]


Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds is the second installment of the Knight and Moon series. What draws me to this series is that it is just comical. I mean where else can I read a book that has phrases like “whack-a-doodle and “crap on a cracker.” I also very much enjoy the light-hearted romance that is developing between Emerson and Riley. I like that they are both aware of the building attraction but […]


Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Age of Swords by Michael J. Sullivan

Age of Swords is the second installment of The Legend of the First Empire series. This is a series that is better off read consecutively. There is some background information given that would help grasp what happened in the first installment but to fully understand the overarching plot you really need to read these books in series order. I was thrilled that some of the races that were mentioned in […]

Mini-Review: One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

What an AMAZING book!! Worth reading, worth reading many, many times. I have enjoyed this series installment the most so far. It was full of action and sci-fi goodness and I loved it. It was so great to have all the characters in this story as well as additional characters that we had heard of before but never met. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Dina’s sister and her niece. Seeing […]

Dark Sahale by Sam Ferguson

Over five-hundred years ago Nagar’s Blight, a curse that was created by Tu’luh the Red and Nagar, was instrumental in the dragons leaving the Middle Kingdom. The curse used the inherent evil in a creature to turn it into a mindless drone that could be used as a weapon by the one that controlled it. That curse was recently lifted, Tu’luh had been slain, and now the dragons were slowly […]

She has been raised by her mother and step-father as a member of the aristocracy virtually in the lap of luxury.

Deadmen Walking by Sherrilyn Kenyon

I was very excited to read Deadmen Walking. Devyl Bane, Aa warlord, once trapped in in hell, is brought back to lead a crew of damned that had been given a second chance. Their mission is to return the damned creatures that keep breaking out back to their hell realms. Every crew member is unique in their own religions, beliefs, and skill sets. None of them are human but all of […]


The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

The Disappearances is a wondrous tale that is steeped in historical elements and a delight to the imagination. The writing is well crafted, eloquent and rich with details. The characters are developed, unique and memorable. This is a young adult novel and it has the strong emotional pulls that would resonate with that audience. It also has whimsy that would appeal to all readers. This story is set in the […]


The Underground River by Martha Conway

The Underground River by Martha Conway

The Underground River is a story set in the late 1830’s. The abolitionist movement was in its infancy and it would be years before the 13th Amendment to the Constitution – the Emancipation Proclamation – would be ratified. The story is a memoir told through the lens of the main character May Bedloe. This is not a book that really focuses on the abolitionists, the underground railroad or the realities […]


Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

What drew my interest to Edge of the Future was that it was military science fiction, a debut, and a new author! I am always on the lookout for a good sci-fi read and this book looked just right 😊. Once I started reading it what really got my blood pumping was that it has cyborgs, medical nano-technology that is able to heal just about every sickness and injury, hi-tech […]

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

The Brothers Three by Layton Green

I wanted to read The Brothers Three because I was curious to see how the author would take three brothers, Will, Caleb, and Val, from current times and translate their lives into a fantasy adventure that included magic, wizards, and necromancers. This story was truly an adventure! Will is the youngest of the brothers and also the main protagonist. This story is told mostly from his point of view but […]

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 […]
