Review: Drop Dead Gorgeous by Juliet Lyons

In this world created by Author Juliet Lyon, vampires are the hottest new dating craze, so much so that they have created a dating service called v-date to allow the living to have some one-on-one time with the undead. Drop Dead Gorgeous starts out with Mila going on a date with her first vampire. Mila had been through the ringer with relationships and figured that she would try something new […]

Review: Gatekeepers by Sam Ferguson

Gatekeepers is the type of read that when you pick it up you find yourself caught up in the excitement until the end. I love reads that have creatures from other planets or dimensions and this story certainly delivered. Joshua Mills has had a rough go of things lately. After he was acquitted of patricide, had lost his wife and child to divorce, and was finally released from prison, all Joshua […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Once Bitten, Twice Die by Antony Stanton

“Abbott was flecked with spittle. The stench of warm, rancid breath was overpowering as their heads slowly came together. Some of the man’s teeth had rotted and fallen out leaving open sores in the blackened gums. His face was mottled with an unhealthy, purple tinge. It was covered with scabs and flaking skin. Red lines like those of a habitual drinker covered his cheeks. His eyes were bulging and blood-shot, […]

Kingdom of Ashes by Elena May

Utterly alluring and remarkable! This story was set in a dystopian future where humanity is at the brink of annihilation. When I started this book I was struck by how Ms. May created a terrifying reality for humans who survived a harrowing extermination attempt. I so enjoyed the attention to detail that explained the positions of both the side of the vampires and the humans in this conflict. I was […]

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 […]

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 […]

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

I have been waiting for this book to come out since April and it is finally in my hot little hands. It was so much more than I had hoped for. It has the steampunk elements that I adore. It has vampires, shape-shifters, mediums and humans with exceptional qualities. Loved it! This book for me is amazing; it felt like it had a blending of Jane Eyre, The Hound of […]

The Flame and the Arrow by Emigh Cannaday

The Flame and the Arrow took me by surprise and kept me in a state of delight all the way to the wonderful end! I have repeatedly stated that I do indeed have a weakness for books with lovely cover art, so when I was contacted about this book, big thank you to author Emigh Cannaday, I was hooked on sight! Is that cover not just beautiful? What makes it […]

Blood of the Earth by Faith Hunter

Wow! This story was fantastic! This book is a spinoff from the Jane Yellowrock series and it is an urban fantasy like no other. I love how this book is written. There are human elements, paranormal elements and also this sentient earth element. The villains are truly despicable and vile. The heroine is down to earth, honest, and so very traumatized and emotionally caged. It is so beautiful to see […]

Vampire Girl by Karpov Kinrade

This story was really hard for me to rate. Arianna is a normal girl who recently dropped out of college to work at a diner so that she could help her mother pay the bills, although Ari’s mom is actually unaware of this fact. Hard times bring on hard decisions and even though Ari would love nothing more than to stay home on her eighteenth birthday, she has to go […]

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

It is hard when you are reviewing a book that is almost a decade old. In the almost 10 years since this book was published there have been many amazing books to read within the fantasy, paranormal romance genre’s. When this book came out I am sure it was mind-blowing and I did really enjoy this book but I would still give it 3.5 stars. This is an urban fantasy, […]
