I’ve been looking forward to BOUNDARY BORN since I finished BOUNDARY LINES last year. And BOUNDARY BORN was easily worth the wait. The Boundary Magic series has gotten significantly better with each book, and BOUNDARY BORN has continued that tradition by bringing us another epic adventure.

GRAVE ATTRACTION pulls you in with excellent characters, new and exciting mythology and a great dramatic finale. It managed to blend perfectly all the aspects I’ve come to expect from a book partway through a paranormal romance series, without being overly repetitive or confusing.
In this third Baba Yaga book we are introduced to Bella, the Baba Yaga who watches over the forests and deserts of the Midwestern states. It was fun coming back to this series and seeing a modern take on the Baba Yaga of Slavic fairy tales. Since Baba Yaga lives in the forest in the old stories, Wickedly Powerful portrays a Baba in her most natural habitat amongst the trees and forest creatures.
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.
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.
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.
LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITCH is a clever witchy mystery centered around a rather complicated romance that almost took on soap opera like proportions in its dramatic reveals and complex relationship issues.
I thoroughly enjoyed the BOUNDARY CROSSED, so I was eager to read BOUNDARY LINES. The pacing in the first book was off just a little bit for me, and I was worried that problem would continue in this book, but it didn’t at all. The plot flowed smoothly and quickly, with lots of action and just the right amount of romance. It’s rare for me to find a book that is so interesting I don’t want to put it down, but I had a hard time putting this one down.
This is a fabulous story with fabulous characters. Molly, the “Wicked Witch” who comes to Castle Hangnail to govern it, is smart and ready to face the difficult tasks ahead – most important of which is getting the minions on her side!
Whether it’s the minotaur cook in the kitchen who hates anything to do with the letter Q, a stitched together (more than once) majordomo or the pin cushion doll with a hypochondriac goldfish, Vernon makes every secondary character interesting.
IRON & BLOOD has it all. It’s an excellent murder mystery novel filled with steampunk airships, vampire witches, clockwork zombies, tesla rays, and much more, all thrown into an alternate history taking place in New Pittsburgh.
