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 […]

Bound by Benedict Jacka

Wow! I love that the Alex Verus series is always filled with action and dire situations. Bound starts right where the previous book, Burned, left off and I do so enjoy the title that has been chosen for this book. Alex is absolutely bound by circumstances in this book and there is no wiggle room for the choices he must make. Having already lost everything, there is very little that Alex […]

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 […]


Gilded Cage by Vic James

Gilded Cage by Vic James

Brilliant, dark and intense! Creative world building filled with fantastical imagery and deplorable cruelty. Brings to the front issues of class inequality set in a world with no boundaries. Definitely agree with the consensus that if you are a fan of Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen series then you will enjoy this novel. The setting of this story is a modern day alternative Britain where there are even alternate world histories, […]


Hungry Ghosts by Stephen Blackmoore

Hungry Ghosts by Stephen Blackmoore

I really dug that this book took place in Mexico and that there were many Aztec gods and goddesses that are either a part of the story or referenced. Really fascinating! I am no expert in the Aztec culture or history but I felt that everything was represented in a realistic fashion. Mr. Blackmoore did a wonderful job in researching and it shows in his characters and urban development. I […]


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I was first introduced to author Leigh Bardugo when I read the Grisha Trilogy. That series was just spectacular (imagine fireworks and sparkles after this word), so when I read about the first book in this duology, Six of Crows, which is set in the same world as the Grisha books, I had to read it! I adored the first book and this book was even better! How could I […]

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

Irene, Kai and Vale are back in this action-packed installment of The Invisible Library series, Honestly though, I think that all the stories are full of action 😉 and I love it. After reading two out of three books from this series I can say with sincerity that these books are best read in order. This story is heavily tied back to the plot from book number one with a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Shadowed Souls Edited by Jim Butcher and Kerrie L. Hughes

Writing a review on a collection of short stories is something of a challenge. I am a huge Jim Butcher fan and to be able to read a short story from The Dresden Files featuring Molly was definitely a draw for me. Luckily there were ten other stories that were full of action and magical elements to keep me entertained throughout the rest of the book. The story that had […]

A City Dreaming by Daniel Polansky

This book felt like a series of short stories with M being the main character and the world he inhabits is unlike anything I have ever read before. It seems to be commentary about M’s life, friends, and the city where he lives. It was very challenging to find the overall plot. If anything I felt that nothing made sense. There is no explanation of the world you find yourself […]
