Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

My anticipation for The Trouble with Twelfth Grave was filled with excitement and a twinge of reluctance. I was expecting that once again Charley or Reyes would be holding back a big secret that, if only they had been honest with each other, would not have led to landing in hot water. Phewww, this story was really, really good! Love Charley, she is better than ever! As always, I love […]

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.

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: Freeing the Beast by Tina Donahue

Freeing the Beast would be a perfect story for those who are looking for a paranormal romance with lots of raw passion and with a bit of Alpha male posturing. Nothing is held back between these two characters once the beast is released. I found the idea of a business that takes paranormal creatures and gives them makeovers in order for them to be more appealing to the mortals they want […]

They are not able to call forth the sin, that is the job of the mages. The aki are not revered for their position, in fact they are little higher than slaves at the whim of the Mages who control them. […]

Review: Forged Alliances by Katherine McIntyre

Forged Alliances is the first book in the Tribal Spirits series and I can tell you that this is one series that I will absolutely continue! I am a big fan of paranormal romances because as you know anything goes, what caught my interest in Forged Alliances was that this was a PNR between a mountain lion shifter and wolf shifter! Had to know how that was going to work, lol, […]

Review: The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West

I was excited to read The Secrets of Isalyne because it sounded exciting and it was some serious cover love! I absolutely loved the whole idea of the lumination trade. I loved it! It was so original!! Luminators had a special ability. They were able to take faded memories and restore them. Brighten them in the mind so that the person receiving the service could have faded memories restored to […]

Blitz: The Chosen Knights by Mary Ting, Excerpt & Giveaway

The tagline for this book is “Some books aren’t meant to be opened” and to a Bibliophile that means “open me immediately and I will give you all the secrets you desire!” Guilty I am, I needed to know more about this book! I think I am definitely going to start with the prequel as this is going to be a series I will probably read through until the end. […]

Review: Blackwing by Ed McDonald with Interview

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 […]

Top Ten List With K. Ferrin Author of Across the Darkling Sea

Across the Darkling Sea – I love this cover and it absolutely caught my eye!

Sounded so good I wanted to know more. 😉 Across the Darkling Sea by K. Ferrin Publication Date: November 12, 2016 Genres: […]
