Review: A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund

Review: A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund

May 3, 2016 Review 4 ★★

The legend and myth of Robin Hood has always fascinated me. The tale of a guerrilla stealing from the looting rulers and giving back to the producers has always been a story that has resonated with me. So I’m always drawn to Robin Hood books. Most of them aren’t that original, but I still enjoy the retelling from a different authors perspective. So when I first clicked on A DARING SACRIFICE and found out it was a Robin Hood retelling, but with a female Robin Hood, I was thrilled. This was just the new twist I was looking for on the Robin Hood legend. However, I was quickly disappointing.

Review:  Wolf on a Mission (Salvation Pack #6) by N.J. Walters

Review: Wolf on a Mission (Salvation Pack #6) by N.J. Walters

April 15, 2016 Uncategorized 0 ★★★★

WOLF ON A MISSION is a very well written and wonderfully compelling romance which pulls the reader in to the story with characters you grow to really care about. I loved how caring Elias was in regards to taking care of his nephews and admired his determination to find his nephew’s a place to belong.

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

March 14, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

I didn’t know I needed a fabulous Egyptian-inspired zombie killing novel in my life, but now that I have devoured THE REBURIALISTS, I will be recommending it to everyone at the top of my lungs. It’s equal parts clever and exciting, with a dash of horror and a fun love story.

The world is complicated enough without having to cut the tendons of your dead relatives and get their mouths sewn shut in case a Re-Animus decides to take it for a ride after you bury it. You’re better off cremating it, if you can afford it. Where zombies rising is common place, the BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) takes care of putting the dead back where they belong, and Brynner Carson is their hero.

Review:  Chaos Choreography (InCryptid #5) by Seanan McGuire

Review: Chaos Choreography (InCryptid #5) by Seanan McGuire

March 12, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

I loved getting back to Verity’s storyline in CHAOS CHOREOGRAPHY and especially loved that my silent wish was answered which was to have Dance or Die be in the actual story instead of being constantly referenced to. The dance competition reality show was my favorite part of the story and part of this is due to my love of dance competition reality shows.

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

March 5, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

THE FAMILY TRADE isn’t Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, and it’s hard for me to really classify it other than by using the broader term speculative fiction. But I enjoyed it so much I wanted to write a review about it. THE FAMILY TRADE follows a reporter, Miriam Beckstein, who quickly finds herself caught up in another dimension when she discovers that she has the very rare ability to “world walk.” Court intrigue, assassinations, and hidden romance fill THE FAMILY TRADE.

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

February 24, 2016 Review 5 ★★★★

After ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again. Lucky for us, Shearin decided to self-publish more in the series! WEDDING BELLS, MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, and follows the same formula as other books in the series – successfully, I might add.
