Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

June 28, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

With it’s strong hero and sweet heroine, SHADOW RIDER checks off many of the boxes that I love in a romance, plus, it takes place in Chicago! Though not the focus, Feehan has created an interesting mythology, and given the reader side characters’ stories to look forward to as well!

Review: Black City Saint (Black City Saint #1) by Richard A. Knaak

Review: Black City Saint (Black City Saint #1) by Richard A. Knaak

June 10, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

BLACK CITY SAINT is a dense urban fantasy that’s got a lot going for it. It’s fairly original, being set in the 1920s instead of modern day, and the juxtaposition of the Christian tradition with the fae mythology is interesting, to say the least. However, BLACK CITY SAINT was difficult to get through at times and where the world-building succeeded, the character development failed.

RUINED was a fun young adult book, that while enjoyable, fell a little flat for me. With some interesting aspects, and the beginnings of a sweet romance, I think that RUINED could have been a better read for me with some more details and fleshed out characters.

Review: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1), by Mishell Baker

Review: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1), by Mishell Baker

June 2, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

BORDERLINE, by Mishell Baker, is a strange book, and I was never quite sure what it was trying to be; serious exploration of mental health disorders in a fantasy setting, a love letter to Hollywood, a dark fantasy world occasionally peppered with clever observation? The main character was super engaging (if not always particularly likeable), but the urban fantasy part left me wanting more.

If you’re already a fan of Amanda Carlson’s writing a la the Jessica McClain series, then STRUCK will be right up your alley. If you’re not familiar, then hold on to your hat, because you’re about to go for a crazy ride!

Early Review: Blood Lust (The Sentinels #3) by Alexandra Ivy

Early Review: Blood Lust (The Sentinels #3) by Alexandra Ivy

May 26, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

BLOOD LUST is another excellent, bold, action-packed installment of The Sentinels series. I love when we are given the opportunity to see interesting side characters from previous books get their own book. For BLOOD LUST we get Bas, a mysterious assassin who caught my eye earlier in this series.

Review: The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1) by Richelle Mead

Review: The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court #1) by Richelle Mead

May 5, 2016 Review 4 ★★★

If you follow my reviews you know that I love Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series and really enjoyed the Vampire Academy novels. So I try all of Richelle’s other young adult novels. However, each time I’ve been let down. She just hasn’t been able to capture the beauty of the characters and the world she created for Vampire Academy.

Review: Conspiracy Boy (Angel Academy #2) by Cecily White

Review: Conspiracy Boy (Angel Academy #2) by Cecily White

April 14, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

CONSPIRACY BOY is not the most amazing, most original young adult paranormal novel you’ll ever read. However, if you don’t go in expecting the next big thing, you’re going to be extremely satisfied. It’s a fun, action-filled read. And while White doesn’t break any molds, she definitely makes things interesting.
