Following one’s destiny isn’t easy, especially not when there are evil kings, pirates and dragons in the way. SO I MARRIED A SORCERER is the second book in The Embraced series by Kerrelyn Sparks and it was just as much fun as the first.

CHEW has never been a book for the weak-stomached. There is no way of getting around the fact that our main character eats the corpses of villains and victims in order to solve crimes. He doesn’t always wait until they are dead, either. It’s twisted, hilarious and heart-breaking all at the same time.
“If you marry me I’ll save your business” is a tried and true Harlequin Romance trope. I’ve seen it done with restaurants, bed and breakfasts and even an auction house. Usually, the big reveal is that they can be attracted to each other and still hold differences of opinion. This time, the reveal has a bit more fur and fang.
I tried to read THE DEATH AND LIFE OF SCHNEIDER WRACK with my speed reading app but there were so many words that were gigantic or outright invented there was no way that my eyes could keep up at 300 and 400 words a minute. I’m glad I slowed down; when I did I started really enjoying this book that is more akin to Alice In Wonderland than it is to most other zombie books.
Authors sometimes make confusing choices, adding a mythology or a plot twist that is such unnecessary deus ex machina that it almost ruins a book. NEVER DARE A DRAGON has characters who feel real, and it’s disappointing to have most of their problems disappear in the last quarter of the book.
It’s rare to find a book that feels darkly grown up and enchantingly child-like at the same time. CURSED PIRATE GIRL is spooky, touching and intricate, luring you into a topsy-turvy world with detailed images that pull you in.
In ACCIDENTAL SIRE, Harper brings the Half Moon Hollow series back to Half Moon Hollow, and with it, brings in many favorite characters from throughout the series, with nearly everybody making at least a small cameo. I wouldn’t say that the description of the book is completely accurate, though, as it makes it sound like Ben is the focus, not even mentioning Megan, the main character of the book (the one who accidentally gets turned into a vampire).
RUINS & REVENGE picks up right where TREASURE & TREASON ended. The two together make for a satisfying duology within the Raine Benares series, offering adventure, danger and even some hints of romance. With a cast of characters that outshines the slightly repetitive nature of the storyline, RUINS & REVENGE is a perfect conclusion to Tam’s adventure.
With A KISS BEFORE DOOMSDAY, the Dru Jasper series has quickly become one of the series I’m adding to my must-buy list. With its down-to-Earth heroine and the creative situations she finds herself in, A KISS BEFORE DOOMSDAY is super enjoyable and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
With legitimately crazy bridezillas, amusing incident reports, and a dab of romance, HEROINE WORSHIP manages to follow in the footsteps of HEROINE COMPLEX nicely. Clever and entertaining, HEROINE WORSHIP is an excellent entry in the urban fantasy genre.
