Review: Wickedly Powerful (Baba Yaga #3) by Deborah Blake

February 11, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

In this third Baba Yaga book we are introduced to Bella, the Baba Yaga who watches over the forests and deserts of the Midwestern states. It was fun coming back to this series and seeing a modern take on the Baba Yaga of Slavic fairy tales. Since Baba Yaga lives in the forest in the old stories, Wickedly Powerful portrays a Baba in her most natural habitat amongst the trees and forest creatures.

All Things Urban Fantasy Most Anticipated of 2016

February 9, 2016 Paranormal Picks 2

Although a bit belated, we bring you our most anticipated books of 2016! What books are you most looking forward to this year? Kate THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION (SPI Files #3) by Lisa Shearin This might be cheating, since I’ve already read this one- but I’d been dying to get my hands on a copy ever since the romantic cliffhanger at the end of THE DRAGON CONSPIRACY. The romance introduced had me squealing and eager to find out what happened. Plus, it’s hard to say no to sarcasm, action, and some awesome secondary characters.         A COURT OF… Read more »

Review: Grave Visions (Alex Craft #4) by Kalayna Price

February 8, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

It was a long wait for GRAVE VISIONS, the fourth in the Alex Craft series. Was it worth it? Yes! It took awhile to get back into the world-memories of what happened in the previous books coming back slowly as the plot progressed. In GRAVE VISIONS Alex is in more trouble and this time it involves a lot more time in Faerie than she’d like.

Oh SPI Files, how do I love you? Let me count the ways! You’ve got action to keep me occupied, sexual tension for me to swoon about, snappy dialogue to keep me laughing out loud and a cast of characters I can’t help but love. THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION is no exception to the rule, and for me, is a perfect urban fantasy read.

Review:  Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

Review: Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

January 28, 2016 Review 1 ★★★

THIEF OF LIES had an interesting premise with teens being able to travel through the world by books in libraries around the world. That’s what drew me to the story and after I finished the book I felt overwhelmed with information about this world that I think I understand. Is this a world where the magical world is hidden like in HARRY POTTER?

Feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] Despite climate change deniers, people are becoming more and more concerned about the environment, as the recent Paris climate conference clearly demonstrates.
