Though the beginning is a bit rocky, THE EXILE is a fast-paced race of a book, full of twists and turns and a great new world to explore. From the great cover which sucked me in to the last chapter, I delighted in this book and am so thrilled it’s a new series I get to follow.

Following an author from one series to another, especially in the same genre, can sometimes be a bit of a risk. After all, it’s not the same characters that you already fell in love with, not the same world, and who knows? You may not like the new characters and world building, or they might be so similar you get the two confused. Luckily, JINN AND JUICE is a great start to a new series, original and fun, that really shows Peeler knows what she’s doing.
If I’M DREAMING OF AN UNDEAD CHRISTMAS left me wanting more, THE DANGERS OF DATING A REBOUND VAMPIRE definitely did not fulfill that need. With a lackluster romance, a mediocre mystery and generally too many characters to keep track of, THE DANGERS OF DATING A REBOUND VAMPIRE did not live up to the expectations I had for it.
WITCH UPON A STAR, the third book in the Midnight Magic Mystery series, is really tough for me to write a review for. I have seriously conflicting feelings about the events of the book and while it was not poorly written, I think the content is a bit off-putting and not what one would expect from this author.

You may have noticed a few new reviewers popping up recently! After our call for applications in the winter, we received some great applicants and it was hard to narrow it down. But lucky for us (and you!) we’ve got two new reviewers, James and Kim, who will be joining the rotation. We’re excited to have them both! A little bit about them: I am an avid reader and audiobook listener, along with being a self-published author. I generally consider it a bad week if I only finish two books. I enjoy most genres, but I gravitate towards urban fantasy and… Read more »
We are thrilled to be revealing the super cool cover of INDELIBLE INK by Matt Betts, upcoming from Raw Dog Screaming Press.

When there is a significant wait between two related books, such as the wait (almost three years!) between SERAPHINA and SHADOW SCALE, I begin to doubt my impressions of the first book. This was the case here, as I began to worry that I had imagined how wonderful I thought SERAPHINA was and how there was no way that SHADOW SCALE could live up to the expectations I’d set up in my head. Luckily, SHADOW SCALE delivered on all my expectations and more.
ARMAGEDDON RULES follows in FREE AGENT’s footsteps as an action-packed, roller-coaster ride of a novel, full of drama and never letting the reader catch a breath. While sometimes this works, in this case, the entire novel became a bit difficult to follow, with multiple plotlines and many similarly named characters offering the opportunity for confusion.
