Review: Grigori (Brothers of Ash and Fire #1), Lauren Smith

Review: Grigori (Brothers of Ash and Fire #1), Lauren Smith

October 4, 2017 Review 0

GRIGORI is a modern fairy tale set in Russia, in deep dark libraries, high rise condos, and sprawling estates in the forests. It stars fun new mythology and just enough tropes to be fun.

Madelyn is a university professor on sabbatical, researching dragon mythology in Russia, when she stumbles on a secret and gets kidnapped by the very rich, very imposing Grigori.

Early Review: Sparked by Malena Watrous and Helena Echlin

SPARKED starts with a smolder rather than a true burn, carefully introducing the characters and their home life. Despite the sluggish start, I was thoroughly hooked once more details of Ivy’s disappearance were revealed, along with the mysterious love interest.

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

September 15, 2017 Review 3

BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS fits in a lot of YA paranormal romance cliches while somehow also managing to be very unique and totally creepy. The creative mythology really gives a lot of oomph to what could be a very flat and boring YA paranormal romance.

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

Release Day 5!Bat Review: The Brightest Fell (October Daye #11) by Seanan McGuire

September 5, 2017 Review 1

THE BRIGHTEST FELL is an entertaining mix of the comfort of an adventure between well established characters with the dissonance and uncertainty of new blood thrown into the mix. This deep into the series, October Daye’s group of irregulars are beloved and entertaining, it is the unexpected appearance of her biological family that throws a wrench into the mix.

You know a book is good when you start slowing down your reading speed and putting the book down because you’re not ready to leave the world of the story. You’re not ready to leave behind the characters you’ve grown to care for, even if this could be their happily ever after. THE DRUID NEXT DOOR is that kind of story and I’m so glad that it lives up to the first book in the series, CUTIE AND THE BEAST.
