Review: Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

Review: Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

January 6, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

A creative take on a fairy tale retelling, PRINCESS OF THORNS follows the daughter of Sleeping Beauty, Aurora, as she treks through the kingdom to rescue her brother. With elements of other fairy tales brought in (Niklaas’ curse comes to mind), PRINCESS OF THORNS is a wonderful continuation of a beloved fairy tale. Plus, the entire first half of the book has Aurora dressed up as and acting as a boy – a trope I can’t resist – and in this case, it was done well.

Review: Firewall (Magic Born #3) by Sonya Clark

Review: Firewall (Magic Born #3) by Sonya Clark

December 27, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

The Magic Born series has been, so far, a very well done, consistently written series, and I was hoping for similar in FIREWALL. After Lizzie and Vadim, I wasn’t sure if any couple could be better, or if there would be as much delving into the world. Luckily, FIREWALL delivered everything I hoped for.

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1)  by J.A. Kazimer

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1) by J.A. Kazimer

December 22, 2014 Review 1 ★★★

THE FAIRYLAND MURDERS was a interesting mixing of noir detective stories with fairy tales. With this mixture of a gritty murder mystery with light fanciful fairies and princesses you get an at times bizarre world filled with some hilarious interactions between characters. There are some neat references to fairy tale characters and fairy tales.

Review: Wolf’s Fall (Alpha Pack,#6) by J.D. Tyler

Review: Wolf’s Fall (Alpha Pack,#6) by J.D. Tyler

December 12, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

WOLF’S FALL presented a protagonist with PTSD due to a torture incident with a vampire which was a pretty interesting problem to load onto a character. While I don’t know to much about what PTSD is like I thought it portrayed the struggles of someone who has gone through a heavy trauma very well.

Review: Jason (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #23) by Laurell K. Hamilton

Review: Jason (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #23) by Laurell K. Hamilton

December 9, 2014 Review 7

‘ve only ever read one other Anita Blake novel and after reading that book I experienced the first time ever wanting to unread a story due to reason to long to write here. Since then, I’ve been hesitant to even pick up the first few books of this series which are supposed to be excellent according to everyone I’ve spoken to about the series. I decided to give JASON a chance as I was prepared for the random sexual encounters, throngs of characters, and over explaining of Anita’s relationships.

Early Review:  Black Widow (Elemental Assassin #12) by Jennifer Estep

Early Review: Black Widow (Elemental Assassin #12) by Jennifer Estep

November 24, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

Where BLACK WIDOW excels is going far beyond my expectations of a Elemental Assassin book. The series has felt repetitive at times though I keep coming back for me as I adore Gin and every other character that crosses paths with her good guy or bad. What BLACK WIDOW has done is take a series I’ve become comfortable with in regards to how the plot is going to go and flip it on its head. There is a game changer at the end of this book that I adore and can’t wait to see in the next book. Future expectations aside this book is excellent in its forward momentum towards that game changer moment.
