For the first few chapters, THE DARK WORLD by Cara Lynn Shultz couldn’t hold my attention. I found the start of the book clunky, over-flowing with adverbs and unnecessary speech tags. The author wastes paragraphs on everyone’s hair, but skips over important emotional moments, like when Dottie the ghost girl tells the main character she killed herself because she was a pregnant teen in the ‘50s. Even the action scenes felt flat. Then Logan Bradley appeared, and the book got a new life.
From an initial, chilling fall into darkness, Sarah Beth Durst brings hope and magic to a horrific, almost apocalyptic landscape. Don’t pick up this book unless you have time to make it through at least the first half of Lauren’s journey, as her grief and circumstances will make it painful to leave her until she finds her footing.
A big welcome to Sarah Beth Durst who is here to answer some of our questions and celebrate her most recent release, The Lost, The Lost #1 (published on May 27, 2014 by Harlequin Mira).

It’s a sad day when one of the “Best” covers isn’t actually a cover (leaving off the title and author text is cheating, Tor), but thumbs up enthusiasm was hard to find this week.

THE GIVEN is a satisfying and touching conclusion to the Celestial Blues series. The main mystery of who killed Griffin Shaw occupies THE GIVEN, surrounded by a plot that involves betrayal, organized crime, and murder, yet at its center, it’s a story about true love and finding peace with yourself.

Full of action, a captivating couple, and some very mean vampyres, VERITY HART VS THE VAMPYRES was everything I wished for and more. Harlow completely brought her A-game for this one, and it shows in how much fun to read this book is. When I finished it, I had a moment of “is it possible for a book to be too good?”
