Review I really liked this book, the writing, the characters.  Pretty much everything.  I laughed on a regular basis, the fight scenes were nice, and the characters really made the story. The world building was nice and fairly unique.  I’ve gotten a little jaded with the whole quest/journey etc. type…

Book Review: Empath by Becca Campbell @beccajcampbell

Review I was intrigued by the concept for this novel, especially since it dips so close to my own problems.  I loved how she portrayed an empath, her struggles and the intricacy of her powers.  Campbell easily portrays both the highs and lows, the good and the bad, of each…

Book Review and Excerpt: Miranda’s Mate by Ann Gimpel @anngimpel

Review I really like these types of stories, stories where both parties want the same thing, but neither has the guts to reach for it.  And I felt like this one was done beautifully.  There tends to be a thin line between getting that type of storyline right, and royally…

Review This book was more serious than the first book in the series, Cameron’s Law. Darker, but still funny in places.  It had a poetry to it I really liked.  A flow and flair that appealed to me. I liked D, though I got a bit frustrated with not knowing his…

Review I loved the idea of this story.  And I can honestly say, the way the author implemented the concept was absolutely brilliant.  I mean, the initial scenes, when Death has chosen not to take the dying, brilliant.  Clear, vivid, haunting, and borderline traumatic.  I spent the time when I…

Book Blogger Fair: Reviews of Behind the Veil and Aradia Awakens by Tish Thawer

Behind the Veil Prophecy’s Child This story was pretty cool.  Well written, fast, engaging.  The author quickly pulls the reader into a world of demons and spirits. Thought it strange that she compared the demon queen’s horns to tiger’s eye, even though tiger’s eye is brown and gold, not black…

Not the Norm I loved this story.  It’s gripping, intense, and very different.  It incorporates classic themes, and puts a new spin on them.  The idea that we can make people perfect.  Ostracizing and destroying that which is different.  These are classics, and I loved how the author utilized them…

Book Review: Dragon’s Thief by Susan Lute

Review This book has a lot going for it. It combines a variety of elements that are both uniquely portrayed and fun. Dragons and a post-apocalyptic world combined with conspiracies, thieves, mercenaries, maniacal plots for world domination, just to name a few. The author has a unique portrayal of the…

Review I’m so bad…  I promised I’d get this post up for the author on the twelfth.  I just finished the book… at nearly five a.m.  Aren’t I bad? To, start, I’m not big on what I call “lah” moments.  You know, the moments in movies where a couple are…
