Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

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, […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]

Review: Sweet Nightmares by Zizi Cole

Sweet Nightmares grabbed my attention from the start. The horror elements in this book were tightly twined with suspense and a little romance too. I was immediately horrified by the story unfolding as well as chilled to the bone trying to figure out why it had happened. I immediately had a sense of foreboding that had me immediately engaged with this story. Alexandrea Cooper’s family was brutally murdered and somehow […]

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: Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan

Shadow Reaper is the second book in the Shadow Riders series and I love the characters from this series. The Ferraro family, they stick together through thick and thin. There are even the cousins from New York who are willing to jump in whenever help is needed. I just love the sense of familia that I get whenever I read a book from this series! In this story, Ricco Ferraro […]

Review: Take to the Limit by Dawn Ryder

I will admit that when I considered reading Take to the Limit from the Unbroken Heroes series I was a little apprehensive. The idea of a guy sleeping with two sisters and having a relationship with one of the sounded like the type of drama that I steer away from. I was beyond relieved that the Author handled that situation well and there were essentially no love triangles. Still not a […]

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 Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is about the “what if’s” regarding the internet. What if the internet could be utilized for truly evil purposes and possession? What if there was a demonic select that had a location on Earth, specifically Portland, that they used for their ritualistic reasons? What if they were tired of the status quo and hatched a plan for worldwide domination? If you ever considered any of those questions, […]

Four by Jane Blythe

Four by Jane Blythe

I enjoy reading the Count to Ten series because Author Jane Blythe is not afraid to bring to life the graphic violence that truly can occur with crime. Before I started reading Four though, I had to take a moment and metaphorically put on my big girl panties to ready myself for this story. I might enjoy and appreciate this series but that does not mean that it doesn’t scare […]

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 […]

One Taste of Crazy by Amanda Siegrist

The A One Taste Novel series is set around a group of friends who started out working in the same firm until an event occurred that changed their lives forever. I really appreciate that each book in this series focuses on a specific character but also includes the characters from previous books. Dee O’Malley was introduced in the first book of this series but it was not until One Taste […]
