Review: The Razvak Hunter by Arel B. Hunter

The Razvak Hunter in the simplest terms is about dark creatures versus light creatures and the battle between the two. This story was set in Vallenthar with the continent being split into Myrasia and Easia. The dark ones lived in Easia and the light ones lived in Myrasia. In this world, there had to be a division between the two because the dark beings and light beings were not able […]

Review: Forged Alliances by Katherine McIntyre

Forged Alliances is the first book in the Tribal Spirits series and I can tell you that this is one series that I will absolutely continue! I am a big fan of paranormal romances because as you know anything goes, what caught my interest in Forged Alliances was that this was a PNR between a mountain lion shifter and wolf shifter! Had to know how that was going to work, lol, […]

The Story behind The Last Namsara In The Last Namsara, the main character Asha grew up being hated by her people. She was the daughter of the Dragon King, a princess, but it also was because of her that her city was burned, her mother was killed, and she was disfigured. It was because of her that the telling of stories became forbidden. For to tell a dragon a story […]

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: Odd & True by Cat Winters

Odd and True is brilliantly written! I was kept on the edge of my seat always wondering what was going to happen next, if the monsters were real or not. This story gave me the whole “what is hiding around the next corner” feeling. It was tantalizing to my spidey senses. When I chose to read this book, it was because I really wanted a fast and furious monster hunt […]

The Last Dragon Rider by Errin Krystal

I loved that The Last Dragon Rider starts out as a bedtime story told by a guardian to their child. I could clearly see the scene unfurling, the child asking for a story before bedtime the weary caretaker wanting nothing more than for the child to go to bed but can’t deny their enthusiastic pleas. After figuring that it would be easier to just tell the tale, the guardian starts […]

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

What a pleasurable read! The Epic Crush of Genie Lo is a book that would appeal to all readers. This story has it all, epic battles, good versus evil, romance, Chinese mythology, I could keep going on and on! This story was better than I ever expected, I just couldn’t get enough and I hope against hope that it will turn into a series!! Genie Lo is not your average […]

The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid

I always dig any book where the story is set on another planet or in outer space. In this book, I have all that plus the planets are terraformed and colonized by humans who would rather have the hardships than be ruled by tyranny. The rest of society, the elite, all live on space stations built with all their needs in mind. Everything they need is cultivate or simulated. Ohh, […]

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]

The Watcher by Bella Jewel

Suspense, thrill, and romance? Check, check, check. I loved this story! The Watcher is the kind of book that you read and pray that it never happens to you! The start of this novel had my heart pumping and it did not stop from there! The story is told in the present but there are creepy and suspenseful flashbacks that tell us readers what Marlie suffered through. It is like […]

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 […]

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 […]

Semi-Broken by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Broken is the fourth book in the Harper Hall Investigations series, a series I am absolutely in love with. This book and series has quickly become a comfort series to me. When I need a good read with some quirky but lovable characters this is definitely on the list! There is plenty of snark, sarcasm, wit, and friendly banter that happens between these characters that I just connect to them […]

Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Cage of Darkness by Jennifer Anne Davis

My Review:  Amazing, chilling, and heartbreaking! By the end of Cage of Darkness, I was just shaking my fist at the sky! This was my actual response “For the love! For the freaking love! I can’t even! When is the next book out?! So many emotions right now. For the love.” That was over two weeks ago and I am still shaking my head. I want a do-over on that ending, […]

Two Can Play by Kate Kessler

I loved It Takes One by Author Kate Kessler and have been seriously looking forward to reading Two Can Play. I hadn’t had the chance to buy it and when I came across this book at my local library I was thrilled. It seemed that now was the time to read this book. Audrey Harte is back and she has been put in charge of the East Coast location of […]

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 […]

I had signed up to do a blog tour with Good Choice Reading Promotions for Cage of Darkness which is the second book in the Reign of Secrets series. For a lucky few who committed to the blog tour the author was offering a limited number of signed books for the first in the series, which was Cage of Deceit. Heck Yeah! I was one of the lucky bloggers and […]
