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.

Enter via the widget below. Avoiding the Fae by Dani Harper “What? Why would I want to do that?” you ask. “Faeries are so cool – I’d LOVE to meet one!” No. No, you wouldn’t. Pop culture has us all lulled into thinking “Tinkerbell” when we hear the word faery. But the Fae aren’t cute, little, or nice! These are the faeries of the old legends: powerful… Read more »
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 »

Welcoming Spring with 33 new titles!
Set in summertime Paris, MOONLIGHT AND DIAMONDS features an American werewolf alpha, looking for the right werewolf gal to start his own pack, and a cold Parisian beauty who has been running away from her wild side for years. For such a short book, the evolution of the characters and their relationship was believable and mostly well-paced. The mystery was fun and the varied paranormal world-building was interesting.
THE DIAMOND CONSPIRACY is full of steampunk awesomeness as I thought this whole series would be just from reading the story summary of PHOENIX RISING. It has everything from weird steampunk weapons and tricked out vehicles to intense action and some romance thrown in as well. Add a mad scientist doing creepy experiments and secrets upon secrets and this book is filled with so much delicious ideas.
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.
