My Review This novella is the start to the brand-new Madly series, a mermaid series that blends threads of traditional lore with new mythology.  I love mermaid-themed stories and this one was really fun.  At 53 pages, it is a short read,, but it is a great introduction to the world of Madly! Fairy tales are […]

My Review The Goddess Hunt tells the story of Kate and James during her time away from the Underworld.  It was supposed to be a fun-filled trip to Greece, right up to the point that Kate finds herself in the middle of a feud between immortals.  And then the action begins… This book was action-packed and […]

My Review I have always loved Greek mythology and I love retellings and reimaginings of fairy tales and legends.  I got both in The Goddess Test, which makes me a very happy reader! The characters in this story were wonderful!  I love that Kate is created to be strong and independent, her own person.  She has […]

My Review I am a sucker for all things Celtic and faery, so I was excited to find this book.  There is no denying the fact that the cover is gorgeous and it drew me right to it.  But it was the words inside that kept me reading! Allison and Ethan… I loved the tension […]

My Review Having recently read the classic Peter Pan, I was intrigued by the idea of a retelling of that story.  I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings and this is the first one I have come across that is based on that story. Second Star is tells a very different story than that of […]

My Review I really loved the first book in this series, Oracle of  Philadelphia, and I think I loved this one even more!  For once, I was grateful for my inability to sleep at night because it gave me that much more time to read.  I couldn’t put it down and was sad when it was […]

My Review Hidden is the first in a new series, the Dragonlands, and it is fantasy of epic proportions.  If you have read any of her Song of Eloh Saga series, you know the kinds of worlds that Megg creates.  She is genius at creating fantasy worlds and this latest word treat is no different.  It is a […]

My Review Morning’s Journey is the sequel to Dawnflight and my favorite of the two!  This series is an epic tale of Arthurian mythology.  What I love most about this series is that the characters are created in new ways.  The cast of characters are those with whom all lovers of Arthurian literature are familiar, but […]

My Review This is one of those series that I am truly sad to see go.  I truly fell in love with The Goblin Wars… the characters, the story, the mythology.  I am sad that it is over, but it ended beautifully. I really have enjoyed the writing style the author used for these books, especially […]

My Review I enjoyed this series as a whole, but this book was definitely my least favorite of the three.  I think my major complaint was that there was so little of Ash and Fin in this one.  This book focused on Tati, whom I loved, but the first two focused so much more on […]
