Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.

Review: The Deepest Well (Age of Gray #1) by Juliette Cross

Review: The Deepest Well (Age of Gray #1) by Juliette Cross

February 12, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

A sweeping romance that spans centuries, THE DEEPEST WELL is a spin-off of the dark and sexy Vessel Trilogy. THE DEEPEST WELL bookends the Vessel Trilogy, with the action taking place both before and after that series, and I think the people who will most enjoy this book are those who have already read it.

Release Day Review:  The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

Release Day Review: The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

November 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

THE CASQUETTE GIRLS is a fascinating and haunting paranormal YA novel. The plot starts off a tad slow though once it gets started it really moves. It’s a tale that takes some of New Orleans’ more famous ghost and vampire stories and gives them an even more sinister bent. I loved the setting as its a city so entrenched in mystery and has its own very colorful history.

Review:  Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

Review: Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

November 12, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Pale Moon Walking is a brilliant blend of the Wild West and aliens and at the center a strong romance between two very tough, independent characters. We have gunslingers, small desert towns mixed with government conspiracies, military experimentation, and mysterious aliens.

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

September 25, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Classic sword and sorcery, but by no means a simple story, BLOODFORGED explores the intricacies of politics, war, and marrying your ex-boyfriend’s brother. In this universe “victory” is more nuanced than defeating a single villain or weakness, forcing Alix and company to face heartbreakingly real obstacles as they fight for the alliances and resources that can turn the tide of a losing war. And upon this stage of high adventure and higher stakes, Lindsay’s characters sparkle with wit, emotion, and relationships that ring true.

Review: Silver in the Blood (Silver in the Blood #1) by Jessica Day George

Review: Silver in the Blood (Silver in the Blood #1) by Jessica Day George

July 23, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

SILVER IN THE BLOOD was a book I was very much looking forward to reading. The beautiful cover and author alone (I loved DRAGON SLIPPERS) was enough to intrigue me, and I didn’t even bother reading the description. So going in a bit blind, I was very happy when SILVER IN THE BLOOD lived up to my expectations.

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

June 4, 2015 Review 4 ★★★★

There be monsters here; amid the gas lamp laden walkways of Victorian era London in THE SHADOW REVOLUTION and just a few magic practitioners stand in defense against the darkness. I loved the setting and the world building set up in this story and the idea of a order of magical practitioners with various sorts of skills really peaked my interest.
