I had high hopes for FATES when I read the description and was very excited to start reading it. Now that I’m finished, though, I can’t help but think I’d have liked it more if the description matched the actual story told.

Early Review: Hero Worship by Christopher E. Long

Early Review: Hero Worship by Christopher E. Long

January 4, 2014 Review 2

Back in the day, superheroes could just be super. Now stories about people with powers all struggle to answer the same question: how would a group of super beings get by in this modern world of 24-hour news networks and jaded capitalism? Christopher E. Long attempts to answer this question in his debut young adult novel, HERO WORSHIP.

Review: Rain of the Ghosts (Rain Cacique #1) by Greg Weisman

Review: Rain of the Ghosts (Rain Cacique #1) by Greg Weisman

December 5, 2013 Review 0

Sometimes when I finish a book, I lean back, close my eyes and revel in the memories. After finishing RAIN OF THE GHOSTS, this wasn’t one of those times. Rather than revealing, I think I looked more like a dog after hearing a high-pitched whistle; the dog is trying to figure out what it heard, and I am trying to figure out what I read.

STONECAST is one of those books that I had a hard time reviewing. While well written and paced, and creative (alchemy and gargoyles aren’t something we see everyday in the genre) there were a lot of aspects of the story itself that I didn’t like, so while it may appeal to others, it wasn’t as big a hit for me as ALCHYMISTIC, the first book in The Spellmason Chronicles was.

Review: Dangerous by Jacquelyn Frank

Review: Dangerous by Jacquelyn Frank

September 7, 2013 Review 0

DANGEROUS was one of those books that I was certain I would like. I was looking forward to reading it, and I went in with a super positive mindset and the willingness to give it more than a fair shot. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into DANGEROUS. I do so love a good paranormal romance, but Devon and Liam’s relationship got so physical so fast that I felt it lacked the emotional connection I really like reading about.

Review: Infinityglass (Hourglass #3) by Myra McEntire

Review: Infinityglass (Hourglass #3) by Myra McEntire

August 17, 2013 Review 3

Most YA series follow the same protagonist throughout the series, or they expand to include additional POVs. The Hourglass series has featured different protagonists for each book with increasingly minor cameos by the preceding protagonists. Whereas Emerson completely captivated in HOURGLASS, and to a lesser degree Kaleb in TIMEPIECE, neither Hallie nor Dune were compelling enough to finish this series on a high note in INFINITYGLASS.

Early Review: Darker Days (The Darker Agency #1) by Jus Accardo

Early Review: Darker Days (The Darker Agency #1) by Jus Accardo

August 16, 2013 Review 0

The best moments of DARKER DAYS, the first book in Jus Accardo’s The Darker Agency, are like an early episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with snappy one-liners, balancing supernatural smackdowns with homework, and impossible romance. The weaker moments, however, are a little more prevalent and reveal Jessie’s grating immaturity and the worst case of insta-love I’ve read all year.

Review: Daysider (Nightsiders #1) by Susan Kinard

Review: Daysider (Nightsiders #1) by Susan Kinard

August 12, 2013 Review 2

DAYSIDER doesn’t bring to mind your typical paranormal vampire romance. The vampires don’t fit the sexy vampire mold and it takes place in a society following a war between vampires and humans, with a shaky truce between the two and separate societies. In other words, it was not entirely what I was expecting after having read the blurb, which doesn’t make it bad, but I thought it was worth a fair warning.

Review: Dead Sexy Dragon (Dragon Heat,#1) by Lolita Lopez

August 8, 2013 Review 0

With most paranormal romances there are certain things I expect: a relatively good story, compelling characters who I can relate to in some way, and of course a steamy romance. Unfortunately DEAD SEXY DRAGON did not deliver on any of these. I enjoyed the underlying premise of this book with different species
