The Gate Guardian’s Daughter by K.T. Munson

This might be a short-story but there is a lot of “story” packed into these twenty-six pages! The Gate Guardian’s Daughter is a prequel for Author K.T. Munson’s upcoming series, The Gate Trilogy. The first book in this trilogy is titled The Sixth Gate and it is scheduled to come out this summer! At the start of this story we are introduced to Elisabeth, a young girl who is growing […]


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 […]

Alpha Kaden by Midika Crane

The Alpha Kaden book is a part of the Alpha series and also is included in The Alpha Series Boxed Set: Books 1 – 3. Each book follows the story of an alpha from a werewolf pack. I really enjoyed the world that was created with the different packs. They are all named for what they stand for (ex: Purity, Discipline, Freedom) and their members seem exhibit that quality. Each pack was […]


Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Author Candace Robinson states that she has a history of “growing up with horror movies, fairytales and real life unsolved mysteries” and you can definitely feel that influence in this story. Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is an amazing story that takes very different genres and weaves them together seamlessly. It was nothing like I had read before, different, and I liked it! When I first started this book, I felt […]


Full Wolf Moon by Lincoln Child

Full Wolf Moon by Lincoln Child

Full Wolf Moon starts off with a gruesome and mysterious attack, death by mauling, that has the investigators stymied. These attacks are nothing like they have ever seen and seem to be occurring in relation with the full moon. At the start these attacks are thought to be caused by a rouge bear or wolf. Mysteriously though, the true culprit can’t seem to be identified. There is just something off […]

Poison’s Kiss by Breeana Shields

I was really excited to read Poison’s Kiss. It sounded fascinating, I loved the cover, had some good reviews…sigh. I just could not get into this book. I started reading it a month or so ago but I set it aside and basically forgot about it. Actually, I would have completely forgotten about it had I not committed to reading it for a challenge. I honestly don’t read a lot […]

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 […]

Review, Excerpt, & Giveaway: Bear With Me by Jennifer Blackstream

Bear with Me is the fourth book in the Blood Realm series. It can be read as a stand-alone though. What drew me to this story was the similarity to a fairy tale, shifter style. A prince forced into his bear form during the day but able to take his human form at night who must find a wife as only she can break the enchanted bargain he made. Sounds […]

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 […]


A Fire in the Blood by Amanda Ashley

A Fire in the Blood by Amanda Ashley

A Fire in the Blood was a book that I was sure I was going to love, not just like. I was not in love with Andrei Dinescu’s character at the start of this story. This was mainly due to the fact that he was actually quite deceptive with Tessa. He led her to believe he was a regular man who was interested in dating her. Not that he was […]

Review: Qorth by Ash Gray

This story, Qorth, is set in a post-apocalyptic world. Cameron lives in Yuma. Which is one of the two spots on Earth that survived the flood that wiped out most of humanity. Imagine it, 95% of the world is covered by water and Cameron is stuck in a desert. Talk about rough times. Not only is weather and access to resources a factor, there are biker gangs and outlaws that […]

Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

Saving Mercy is the third book that I have read from Author Abbie Roads and she has never failed to shock and awe me with her plots. I swear I almost read this book while having my fingers spread over my eyes at certain points! I know, I know…not possible, but if it was then I would have done it! There is no easing into this story. It just grabs […]

Nobody’s Hero by Bec McMaster

I received this book from Bec McMaster because I subscribe to her newsletter. What a phenomenal present for me because I am a huge fan of her work and I am grateful. I was introduced to her work with the book Kiss of Steel from the London Steampunk series. From the book forward I will absolutely read anything Bec McMaster. There are still several books that I haven’t read so […]


Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

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 […]

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

The idea of a psychic and paranormal private investigator is what drew me to this story. It was the witty dialogue however that truly held my attention from the start. Snark and sarcasm will keep me entertained every time! I really enjoyed the banter between the main characters. Harper’s character was sassy, witty, and determined while Riddick’s character was brooding, tortured, and self-deprecating. The juxtaposition between these characters was just […]

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 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 […]
