I know I don’t need to say that I love fairytale retellings, but there it is. I said it. And having read (and enjoyed) Cross’s work before, I was very curious about THE BLACK LILY and the direction she would go. It ended up being quite a fun read, with plot twists, steamy romance and a mystery to keep me entertained.
THE BURNING PAGE combines the best of THE MASKED CITY and THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY to produce a madcap, world-jumping caper. With the return of Alberich, stakes are high and Irene and Kai have no idea who they can trust, inside or outside the Library. A thrilling read, THE BURNING PAGE should delight any fan of the Invisible Library series.

I love fairy tale retellings, and I especially love retellings of Beauty and the Beast, and so I was primed to fall in love with HUNTED from the very start. With its beautiful cover and intriguing description, I was so excited to read it – and luckily, HUNTED did not disappoint.

A few days after finishing WYNTER’S BITE, I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it. In the past, I’ve enjoyed the Scandals With Bite series quite a bit, but WYNTER’S BITE didn’t have the same feel as the previous books in the series, and I didn’t like it as much.
