While Mina and Mikhail are not my favorite couple of the Vampire Blood series, THE EMERALD LILY is nonetheless a passionate tale of romance with two strong-willed and lovable characters to root for. As the war between the evil vampire queen and those opposed to her comes to a climax around them, you can’t help but want the two of them to be able to find peace and love with each other.

Rough, brutal and intense are three words that come to mind when trying to describe the reading experience of JUDGMENT ROAD. It has an outrageous premise that the reader is expected to buy into, of the horrific past of the members of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, but what I could see for a lot of people is that it would just be too much to take in a romance novel.

While enjoyable and fun, A MEDDLE OF WIZARDS had its issues. At times it felt derivative and overly complicated, like the author was trying a little too hard to make it Serious Fantasy. Still, I liked reading it, and I am curious about the next book in the series.
If I was rating the first half of THE CITY OF BRASS, it wouldn’t get very many stars. I nearly put the book down at 25% and never picked it up again – but this book has received a lot of love lately, and I wanted so very much to like it that I pushed through. And I am so glad I did. By the end of THE CITY OF BRASS, I understood the hype and I was reading this book like it was the air I need to live.
A big welcome to Joanna Ruth Meyer who is here with an excerpt from Beneath the Haunting Sea (published on January 9, 2018 by Page Street). Excerpt from Beneath the Haunting Sea by Joanna Ruth Meyer The coach rattled up the road, icy air leaking in through the crack under the door. Talia didn’t think she would ever be warm again—the cold gnawed into her bones. She shuddered in the ratty blanket she had stolen from last night’s flea-infested inn. She had no money to purchase any kind of coat, and no leisure to shop for one even if she did. The driver… Read more »
I loved THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE so much, and wasn’t expecting THE GIRL IN THE TOWER to live up to my lovely remembrances of the first book, mainly because I felt that the story in THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had been wrapped up. What more could possibly happen? Luckily, Arden managed to pull a story out of thin air and the reader gets to enjoy a whole new adventure with Vasya.

THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE is one of those books that has me stumped. It was one of those that while I enjoyed myself while I was reading it, I didn’t absolutely love it, and I’m almost at a loss as to what to say about it in a review. Almost.
