Review of “Cruel and Unusual” by CE Wilson

I picked up this book on a whim and because the cover is gorgeous.  The writing grabbed my attention in the first few pages, and I could tell this author had worked hard to craft this story.  Then, the uniqueness of the story kept me reading to the end. While the setting is sparse and... Continue Reading →

Review of “Serpent’s Sacrifice” by Trish Heinrich

Of course I'm going to read about superheroes. I went into this book expecting a fun, action-packed adventure, and I was delighted by how much more this story held. Female main characters are often used for the sake of just having a female main character, but the time period this book was set in allowed... Continue Reading →

Review of “Border Lines” & NEW RELEASE “Every Storm Breaks” by L.E. Fitzpatrick

(I don't normally post reviews of sequels, but these books are REALLY good, you guys.  To see my earlier review for Book 1 in this series, go here:  The Running Game) I love sequels that don’t feel the need to recap every little thing from the first book before moving on with the story. While... Continue Reading →

Review of “Amongst the Killing” by Joe Compton

This book has absolutely everything I look for in a crime thriller.  Is there a ton of action?  No.  Is the editing in this book perfect?  No.   Did I care?  No.   I read a book hoping for great characters, and the two main men in this book are so well-portrayed that it was impossible...

Review of “Refugees” by R.A. Denny

I love good world-building in Fantasy, and this book is packed with it.  Many elements of the scenery, races, politics, and religions feel familiar but not directly copied from anything in particular, and it was a nice balance between originality and common elements of the genre.  I enjoyed how each of the main characters showed...

Review of “Strange Luck” & “The Nightmare Birds” by Amie Irene Winters PLUS Early Look at “A Darling Secret”

First, beautiful cover.  I feel like it fits the playful, whimsical, slightly mysterious tone of the story. Second, I loved the complex and unique use of memories.  It was a great way to shape the fantastical world Daisy finds herself in, and it was a neat way to bring so many fantastical elements together –...

Review of “Tongues” by Sam Joyce

At the start of this book I couldn’t tell exactly where it was going, and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it (based purely on another book’s similar premise where I ended up hating that story entirely). However, THIS book drew me in pretty quickly.  The twists and complexity of this story were thoughtfully... Continue Reading →

Review of “The Ballad of Allyn-a-Dale” by Danielle E. Shipley

This book was exactly what I needed.  It’s rare that I wish I could rate a book over 5 stars, but this is one of them.  It’s a perfect blend of action, humor, quirky twists on mythology, and great characterization.  I literally laughed out loud more than once, and this book was a pure pleasure...
