As haunting as a ghost story, SERVANTS OF THE STORM brings terror, doubt, and brief triumphs against staggering odds. As Dovey struggles amongst the wreckage and rot left behind by Hurricane Josephine, this is a story only to be read on safe, sunny afternoons when you can remind yourself that the storm isn’t real… no matter how true it feels.
There has been a particular fate clicking away in Cal’s genes from the moment of his birth, and a particular doom dogging the Leandros brothers since the dawn of time. DOWNFALL is when Robin Goodfellow gets fed up with watching incarnation after incarnation of the brothers die a horrible death. DOWNFALL is when he decides it’s time to play this game the Trickster way.
OF METAL AND WISHES hits that perfect blend of interesting world building, real characters, and romantic danger. Reminiscent of The Phantom of the Opera and THE HUNGER GAMES, these familiar components click together to create an altogether different dynamic. I couldn’t get this story out of my head until the very last page, and now I daydream about what comes next.
One of my favorite types of romance are the ones between old friends or partners who become lovers. SO I MARRIED A WEREWOLF plays with this trope excellently though I was frustrated at Faith and Carter and kept shouting at them to just tell each other how they feel. These two oozed chemistry from every pore from their banter to their personalities which made me flip the
Looking back at my review for Spirited, my thoughts at the time were that I’d probably read the second book in the series, but would do so with the hope that some of the little glitches were tightened up. I’m happy to say that they were. GUARDED was a much tighter story – both in terms of the plot and the sparks/relationship of the two protagonists.

Echeverria Source: Goodreads Covers in Series “I can feel the evil seeping through my skin from every direction as my body consumes all of it. I can feel the hatred, pain and sorrow running through my veins as if it’s a part of me, as if I’m connected to the evil, drawn to it.” ~… Read more »
I love it when a series is so consistently good that I can have little doubt in its ability to stay fresh and exciting. BLOOD GAMES continues the steady tradition of awesomeness I have come to expect from The Chicagoland Vampires series. BLOOD GAMES revolves around a baffling series of murders that have supernaturals as the main suspects with a huge political battle raging
Since I’m always up for a good twist on the classic fairy tales, FREE AGENT sounded right up my alley. And does it ever have all the right twists! A modern version of Snow White’s poisoned apple, werewolves who don’t like red because of a red-hoodie-wearing female in their past, and fairy godparents in mirrors are just some of the aspects of the mythology Nelson has created. Add the nearly non-stop action, an awesome cast of characters, and we’ve got an excellent opening to a new series!
If there’s one thing you can count on with book series, it’s cliffhangers. If you’re lucky, it’s a trilogy and you only have to deal with one, maybe two. Multi-book series, you get little ones along the way leading up to the Big One in the penultimate book. I knew this going in to SILVER SHADOWS because I remember the similar cliffhanger between books five and six of the Vampire Academy series. I was prepared, I told myself.
THE MERMAN AND THE BARBARIAN PIRATE was one of those books that captured me with the beautiful cover and failed to live up to the expectation it set. Though intriguing, THE MERMAN AND THE BARBARIAN PIRATE felt shallow and lacking in development.
