Hundreds of years ago a serum had been invented that brought forth latent magic that existed in certain humans but the serum was eventually destroyed.

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 […]


Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty

Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty

I was interested in reading Kiss Me, Kill You because it is a young adult book that involved succubae’s. Succubae are defined as seducers of men through sexual intercourse. How was the author going to use that type of creature but still keep this story for the intended young adult audience? I have to say that in that regards this book is quite successful. There was a definite sexual element […]

Dominic’s Nemesis by D. Alyce Domain

Dominic’s Nemesis was a thrill ride into the paranormal. This story has an abundance of supernatural abilities, a little demon possession, and ooh la la romantic love. I know you are wondering how that is even works together but the writing weaves a story that has a strong plot with well-developed ideas and subplots that are tied together nicely. It makes for an exciting, steamy read that will haunt you. Dominic […]

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

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 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 […]

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!

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 […]
