My Review I don’t read a lot of urban fantasy, but I loved Magic Bites!  The action is fantastic and it features a badass heroine.  Mix that with a ton of paranormal lore and mythology, and it is a truly engrossing read. The world of Kate Daniels is a post-apocalyptic one, but different from most in […]

My Review I am an unabashed fan of Emma Mills and I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end!  But I also can wait to see what she comes out with next.  The characters in these books have been through so much and the reader feels like they have been […]

My Review I truly enjoy this series!  I loved The Winter People and I love this sequel just as much!  The author creates characters that are so complex and so realistic.  Even as dark as the story is, it is beautiful with its weaving of our own reality and the dark reality of the Fae world. […]

My Review I’m not going to lie… half the reason I requested this galley from NetGalley was because of the location of the story.  It takes place in the Monterey Bay area, one of my former stomping ground in my former soldier life.  I love the area and I was happy to read a book […]

My Review This was a strange, but intriguing book.  There were moments when it was like reading through an altered state, as if Cara isn’t always 100% in the present.  In places, there was prose that reminded me a bit of Sarah McCarry’s All Our Pretty Songs.  The lines of between reality and that which is imagined […]

My Review Although I love the Valdemar saga, one of my favorite series that I go back to over and over again, I have to admit that this this installment of the Collegium Chronicles is my least favorite thus far.  I still love Mags, as well his friends Lena and Bear, but this particular book […]

My Review I am a huge Mercedes Lackey fan and the entire Valdemar series is one of my all-time favorites to binge on every few years.  I love the story lines, the mystery, the intrigue, the characters.  I pick up one of these books and I am transported to a totally different world and I love […]

My Review While I have loved this series, I think that this one is my least favorite of the three.  I love Vanyel’s character as much as ever, even with all of his stubbornness.  For me it was Stefan’s character, as well as bits of his back story, that just didn’t do it for me. […]

My Review One of my favorite parts of the Valdemar epic saga are the Collegium so I love that there is now an entire series based on them!  Foundation is the first in a (so far) five book series set in the Collegium.  While Mags is the center of the series from the Herald Collegium, the […]

My Review Such an interesting book with a great premise!  The novel centers around three girls of varying ages.  Each of these girls is from a different historical time period… the 1600s, the 1800s and the 2000s.  Each of them is connected in some way to the mysteriously cursed Witchwood Hollow.  Historical novels are not […]
