Review: The Dragon Medallion by Alexa Whitewolf

An ancient prophecy about a boy and a girl that would come together and save the world from evil, sounds cool, right? Well, it really was. The Dragon Medallion combines many fun elements, such as dragons, ghosts, an ancient prophecy, an Egyptian god and goddess, and battles with long since departed Vikings. From the start of this book I was drawn in to the plot. I had so many questions […]

Review: Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

In Beasts Made of Night there is a sect of society called the aki. The aki are young people that at some point manifested the ability to eat sin. They are not able to call forth the sin, that is the job of the mages. The aki are not revered for their position, in fact they are little higher than slaves at the whim of the Mages who control them. […]

Review: The Secrets of Islayne by Kari Lynn West

I was excited to read The Secrets of Isalyne because it sounded exciting and it was some serious cover love! I absolutely loved the whole idea of the lumination trade. I loved it! It was so original!! Luminators had a special ability. They were able to take faded memories and restore them. Brighten them in the mind so that the person receiving the service could have faded memories restored to […]

Blitz: The Chosen Knights by Mary Ting, Excerpt & Giveaway

The tagline for this book is “Some books aren’t meant to be opened” and to a Bibliophile that means “open me immediately and I will give you all the secrets you desire!” Guilty I am, I needed to know more about this book!

Top Ten List With K. Ferrin Author of Across the Darkling Sea

Across the Darkling Sea – I love this cover and it absolutely caught my eye!

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review: The Siren Chronicles by Douglas J. Sloan

I love to read stories about mermaids and sirens. So, when I had a chance to read The Siren Chronicles, I was all over it. The idea behind The Siren Chronicles was quite interesting. Three mermaids/sirens were to go on an Earthquest and hopefully be able to solve the question of why the mermaids and mermen were getting sick and dying before their time. Something was affecting their city, Oceanna, […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]

This planet, designated XL3198, had a species of hominids that lived in the northern continent of the planet. It was with this species, the Marut, that […]
