Review:  Grave Visions (Alex Craft #4) by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Visions (Alex Craft #4) by Kalayna Price

February 8, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

It was a long wait for GRAVE VISIONS, the fourth in the Alex Craft series. Was it worth it? Yes! It took awhile to get back into the world-memories of what happened in the previous books coming back slowly as the plot progressed. In GRAVE VISIONS Alex is in more trouble and this time it involves a lot more time in Faerie than she’d like.

Review:  Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

Review: Thief of Lies (Library Jumpers, #1) by Brenda Drake

January 28, 2016 Review 1 ★★★

THIEF OF LIES had an interesting premise with teens being able to travel through the world by books in libraries around the world. That’s what drew me to the story and after I finished the book I felt overwhelmed with information about this world that I think I understand. Is this a world where the magical world is hidden like in HARRY POTTER?

Release Day Review:  Wild Cat (Leopard People #8) by Christine Feehan

Release Day Review: Wild Cat (Leopard People #8) by Christine Feehan

November 24, 2015 Review 0 ★★

When I closed this book I had to take some time to process my feeling on it before writing down my thoughts. I enjoy shifter romances and am typically able to reason with the aggressive and violent nature of the heroes due to their being half-animal. Sometimes the attitudes of the heroes can be a bit much and the sex a bit too domineering for my tastes but usually that’s balanced out with the heroine’s ability to stand up for herself and the hero’s ability to know when to calm down or back off.

Review:  Dance with the Devil (Soul’s Harbor Pride #1) by Angela Dennis

Review: Dance with the Devil (Soul’s Harbor Pride #1) by Angela Dennis

November 23, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

While DANCE WITH THE DEVIL is the first in a series, there was so much backstory as to how the warring packs got to where they are at the start of the story that I think there should be some sort of short story to go before this book. What we get told about the past is fascinating and complex and this conflict between the packs is what the main plot of DANCE WITH THE DEVIL revolves around.

Review:  Look Both Ways (Witch City Mystery #3) by Carol J. Perry

Review: Look Both Ways (Witch City Mystery #3) by Carol J. Perry

November 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★

I tend to like reading mysteries and ones with an infusion of magic are even better. Unfortunately, I felt like I was forcing myself to finish LOOK BOTH WAYS. It had a lot of good elements to it including a murder to solve, hidden diamonds, and lots of suspects to choose from to make it a fun whodunit.

Release Day Review:  The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

Release Day Review: The Casquette Girls (The Casquette Girls #1) by Alys Arden

November 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

THE CASQUETTE GIRLS is a fascinating and haunting paranormal YA novel. The plot starts off a tad slow though once it gets started it really moves. It’s a tale that takes some of New Orleans’ more famous ghost and vampire stories and gives them an even more sinister bent. I loved the setting as its a city so entrenched in mystery and has its own very colorful history.

Review:  Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

Review: Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

November 12, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Pale Moon Walking is a brilliant blend of the Wild West and aliens and at the center a strong romance between two very tough, independent characters. We have gunslingers, small desert towns mixed with government conspiracies, military experimentation, and mysterious aliens.

Review: Newt’s Emerald, by Garth Nix

Review: Newt’s Emerald, by Garth Nix

October 25, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

With high action, loveable characters (and some quite despicable ones), and an Austen-like setting, NEWT’S EMERALD is a fun ride that is perfect for younger readers, while still having enough to interest adult readers.

It’s a good thing that Truthful grew up with a gaggle of boisterous boy cousins; when her family’s heirloom emerald is stolen, dressing up as a boy to scour the streets of London is as easy as donning a glamour-enchanted mustache and imitating her cousins.
