Rain by India R. Adams

Rain by India R Adams

I have read several books by India Adams. My first book was actually a novella called Blue Waters from the Tainted Waters series. That book was just amazingly written and it just tore my heart out in all the best ways! I loved it so much that I had added it to my favorites shelf at Goodreads. India and I were chatting on Twitter and she gifted me any book that she had written! Why you ask? Well it was because I had one of her books on my favorite shelf. Any book I wanted people, I was like a Read More

Nobodys Hero by Bec McMaster

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 maybe their reviews will make it to this blog. Nobody’s Hero is a post-apocalyptic story set in a world of drought-stricken wastelands in the year 2147. A meteor had crashed Read More

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 she is not the one getting herself into a predicament. She was abducted as part of a power play that has many facets and is vague at best, in the Read More

Semi-Charmed by Isabel Jordan

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 right! I adored this story! Harper had been in a working partnership with a slayer named Romeo. That is until he skipped town leaving her with a business that she Read More

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 say poor judgement because the humans procreated and eventually turned against the dragons. I found that I was emotionally impacted in the scenes where I learned more of how the Read More

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

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 trying to enter, rattling the door knobs and wreaking havoc. They were strong spirits born from a slaughter and they wanted what was theirs – the estate. Their attempts to Read More

The Amaranthine Chronicles by Tiffany Shand

The Amaranthine Chronicles by Tiffany Shand

I reviewed a box set of three stories by Author Tiffany Shand. Below I have written a mini-review for each story in the series and given an individual rating per book. Overall I found that there were several aspects to this series that I enjoyed and some that I was meh about. What would have really hit the mark for me was being able to develop an emotional connection to the characters, more detailed world building, and a better understanding of the magical part of this world. A very entertaining read though from start to finish though and definitely worth Read More

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

An amazing young adult debut that had me on the edge of my seat! I wanted to read this story because the main character is a bounty hunter from a hell called the lowlands. That alone sounded so intriguing and I was thrilled when I got my hands on this book! From the start, I was into X’s character. He just came on the scene appearing so strong and confident but tortured and I wanted to know more! The scenes in this book were easy to visualize. The development of the lowlands was spectacular. The concept of how souls were Read More

It's You (book 2) by K.P. Kelley

It’s You Book Two by Katy Regnery

This review is on the second book from the It’s You duology. When books are sectioned into halves and you loved the first book you wonder if the second half will live up to your expectations. Yes! Yes! Yes! This book was everything I wanted and more. From start to finish it is a roller coaster of emotion, angst and desire. Where the first part of this duology was the building of the romance, the second part was where the action and angst prevailed! Jack has just come back in order to protect Darcy from a dangerous opponent. Unfortunately, Darcy Read More

It's You (book 1) by K.P. Kelley

It’s You by K.P. Kelley

  When I read the synopsis of this book it peaked my interest. Hmmm, words like kissed, intense, and passion in a synopsis of a paranormal romance will intrigue me almost every time. Then let’s throw in a secret that could “rip or bind” the main characters?? Oh yes, I must know more. I will admit I am a fan of paranormal romance and this synopsis was my siren. Addicting, romantic and touching! This was a wonderfully detailed love story that is tragically beautiful. I loved that it was written in third person omniscient (narrator knows thoughts and feelings of Read More

Eerie by C.M. McCoy

Eerie by C.M. McCoy

  Captivating, dark and spectacular! This is an amazing story and once I started reading it I could not get enough! I just want to gush about this story but I do not want to spoil it for anyone. So, I will try to rein it in but I am bursting at the seams with excitement about this book. The beginning of the book started out like a typical young adult story. Two sisters who survived a life-altering trauma and now they only have each other and a gruff Uncle. There was good backstory development on the relationship between Holly Read More

Moonshadow by Thea Harrison

Terrific Tuesday: Moonshadow by Thea Harrison, Publishing December 13, 2016

Another Terrific Tuesday post for a book I am soooooo flippin’ excited to read! Thea Harrison is a greatly talented, prolific author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy fiction. I am a huge fan of her writing! I absolutely loved the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison! I think I have read my favorite books, Dragon Bound and Oracle’s Moon, at least five times apiece. Now to have a new series spin off from that series  but still set in the elder races world? All I can say is: yes please! Now in case you did not know Ms. Thea Read More

Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks

Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks

Action-packed supernatural story with lively writing and fantastic world building! There is a plethora of supernatural creatures in this novel my favorite being dragons. The written descriptions of the dragons are just beautiful. I also like the inclusion of gnomes and brownies in the story. I enjoy it when there are supernatural characters that are outside the norm. There is also a portion of the story that takes place in Dis which is the hell realm and wow on the demons in this story! There are two different storylines going on in this novel which is a bit confusing. In Read More

Hunt the Dawn by Abbie Roads

Hunt the Dawn by Abbie Roads

Dark, suspenseful and touching! A truly suspenseful read full of conflict and exquisite imagery! What I loved was the suspense mixed with a bunch of paranormal twists. You have murder victims reaching beyond the grave, Evanee Brown entering a dream state that allows gruesome items to travel from the afterlife, a crazy awesome healing connection between Evanee and Lathan, and unknown entities that are woven throughout the story. Just fantastic! In the beginning I did not enjoy the introduction to Lathan Montgomery’s “special abilities.” I felt that his ability was not written in a way that made it believable to Read More

Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

What a hilarious novel! This is a fun and intriguing story set in a diverse universe. I love reading comic science fiction and I don’t mean comics, 😉 comic science fiction is a sub-genre of soft science fiction, it is also known as comedy science fiction. This story has much humor as well as extraterrestrial creatures, space travel, interstellar politics, assassinations, and romance. There is a great backstory on Diana Williams that tells the tale on how she came to be the wearer of the bracelet that contains the Heart of the Cosmos. It is this entity which resides within Read More

Black Bullet by L.D. Rose

Black Bullet by L.D. Rose

Graphic, intense, and action-packed! Dang! This story started off with a bang! This novel starts the story off with events that shaped the main characters. There are transitions between past and present and it is through these transitions that we understand the history that has brought the characters of this installment to the point that they are at. It is also where we are first introduced to Lawan Knight. We are able to learn about the catalyst that has turned her into the hybrid we know today. Let me just tell you that those scenes with Lawan were, as a woman, horrific and nightmare inducing. Read More

Leopards Fury by Christine Feehan

Leopard’s Fury by Christine Feehan, Review with Excerpt

When I started this book I was instantly in love with the female protagonist Evangeline. She is written as a strong, independent, and intelligent character who has relied only upon herself and her leopard since childhood. She is just starting her business but is satisfied that she is making it on her own. The male protagonist is introduced right away and his profession is easily deduced. So there is no grand reveal about what he does as a living. More clarification that anything. The main plot in this story is that both Evangeline and Alonzo have experienced their own type Read More

Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

Omega Rising by Anna Kyle

A truly inspired world development with such attention to the characters! Even the supporting characters were fleshed out and given a truly meaningful part. The story is about shape-shifters, referred to as Joined, and they come from all different walks of life and even religious practices. There are also witches, humans and fae in the mix. This is not just a simple boy meets girl fantasy. There is a complex, prophetic, and detailed story that has so many elements that all readers would find something memorable between its covers. Cass Nolan is the star of this book for me and Read More

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads. The Genre Minx Book Reviews.

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

This was one twisted and unexpected story. I could not make up my mind what genre that I would even classify this under. It was foul-mouthed, believably unbelievable and at times nauseating. I loved it! Xander Stone was struck by over 50,000 volts of electricity via a lightning strike and it did not kill him. Instead he has been “marked.” He has a phenomenon known as Lichtenberg figure all over his body. This is actually an existing phenomenon and you should look it up because it is very interesting. These keraunographic marks look like fern leaf patterns all over his Read More

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Ultimate urban fantasy series!! With every new installment the writing and the characters just improve, how is that even possible after nine books?? This book was very different than the rest though. Kate as we know her has changed fundamentally throughout this story and there has been shifts in the key powers that be. There are plenty of surprises and a few places where your heart will just crush upon itself. For any die-hard Kate Daniels fan it is a must read. I love where the relationship has gone with Curran and Kate. With just weeks to go from finally Read More
