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 […]

Blog Tour Review: Rise of the Sea Witch by Stacey Rourke, Giveaway

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Have you ever watched Disney’s The Little Mermaid and wondered why Ursula was hyper-focused for revenge on King Triton? She really wanted him to suffer and I think it goes beyond just being cast out of the palace, don’t you? Well wonder no more! The story of Princess Vanessa of Atlantica will answer those ponderings and more. […]

Blog Tour Review: Cherished by Christina Bauer

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Starting a series on the third book is not the easiest thing to do. The Author did a fantastic job of including backstory details that helped me to clearly understand what had happened in the previous stories so that I would clearly understand the impact of current events. Cherished is the type of book that you can […]


Blaze by Donna Grant

Blaze by Donna Grant

Blaze is the eleventh book in the Dark Kings series and this story actually overlaps the same time period that book ten does but these characters are located in London. This is a series that is best read in order. The world building and storyline is amazing but a first-time reader may find the start of the book a little confusing with the storyline essentially picking up in the middle […]


The Brothers Three by Layton Green

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 […]

Mini-Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and Ruin is over seven-hundred pages of immense action that rivals epic fantasies. It is really hard to write a review after literally reading for over twelve hours on and off. There is also really no way can I share much without spoiling the story. So it is for those reasons that this is going to be a mini-review. I am a huge fan of this series […]

No Rest for the Wicked by Krystal Jane Ruin

No Rest for the Wicked starts out teasing your imagination about a graphic event that destroyed Tatum’s family leaving her the sole survivor. The event is briefly described with snatches of flashbacks but the whole story was not given. As you read on pieces are given to the overall story that unfurl themselves at the right moment to captivate your imagination. With each piece that is added to the puzzle […]

Cold Reign by Faith Hunter

It was while reading the Soulwood series that I was introduced to world of Jane Yellowrock. I know now that I was obviously living under a boulder! I knew from reading the Soulwood installments that I wanted to know about this world but I had no idea that I was going to be blown away. This story was everything I wanted and more! Cold Reign is the eleventh book in […]

Review with Excerpt: Dark Alpha’s Lover by Donna Grant

Dark Alpha’s Lover is the fourth book in the Reaper series by Author Donna Grant. I first saw the cover of this book on the author’s website and after viewing the synopsis I knew I had to read it! I had learned about the world that this story is set in via Firestorm, a Dark Kings novel so I knew this would be a good read for me. The entire world […]

Bound by Benedict Jacka

Wow! I love that the Alex Verus series is always filled with action and dire situations. Bound starts right where the previous book, Burned, left off and I do so enjoy the title that has been chosen for this book. Alex is absolutely bound by circumstances in this book and there is no wiggle room for the choices he must make. Having already lost everything, there is very little that Alex […]

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

While reading Red Sister, I could not help but realize that this story would appeal to fans of Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers and Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. There are similarities in this story to both of these books.  Do not misunderstand though, this novel is its own animal. If I had to narrow down what I felt the similarities were it would be that this story has members of […]

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

What was it that drew me to this story? A story revolving around necromancy is not something you run into that often and hello on that gorgeous cover! Upon reading it I find that there is a significant Asian (think geisha) influence throughout the writing and the story itself is about love, loss and revenge. This story is told from two points of view and it transitions from past to […]

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 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 […]

Flight of the Krilo by Sam Ferguson

I am a fan of Sam Ferguson’s writing style. Every character is unique and the world building is always so original. The words just flow and create a vivid story that interests you throughout the tale. This story takes place in a world that has several races all striving to conquer, kill, or survive. There is a Native American feel for the Varvarr race. They are very connected to the […]

Gilded Cage by Vic James

Brilliant, dark and intense! Creative world building filled with fantastical imagery and deplorable cruelty. Brings to the front issues of class inequality set in a world with no boundaries. Definitely agree with the consensus that if you are a fan of Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series then you will enjoy this novel. The setting of this story is a modern day alternative Britain where there are even alternate world histories, […]

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 […]

Hungry Ghosts by Stephen Blackmoore

I really dug that this book took place in Mexico and that there were many Aztec gods and goddesses that are either a part of the story or referenced. Really fascinating! I am no expert in the Aztec culture or history but I felt that everything was represented in a realistic fashion. Mr. Blackmoore did a wonderful job in researching and it shows in his characters and urban development. I […]

The Haunted Manor: Torn Between Power and Love by Emilia Hartley

A love story that includes malevolent spirits, yes please! I was very interested in reading this book because I wanted to see how well the author could combine true paranormal and romance. For me it was a winner! My favorite part of this book were the angry spirits. The scenes with the spirits were a bit spooky. The writing was well done, I could feel their anger and imagine them […]
