My Review I have seen a lot of mermaid books around and generally moved on by, thinking they could only be juvenile.  How wrong was I?!  This book was highly imaginative with a great plot. It is told in alternating points of view, from the first person perspectives of Ash and Fin.  It is pretty […]

My Review Laurel, as always, is a fabulous main character.  I love that, although she is fae, she has retained her humanity and has tried to embrace both sides of her life.  But in her quest to save those she loves, both human and faerie alike, Laurel can often be more than a little reckless.  She […]

My Review There is even more of the mythology that I love so much in this book.  Like in Spells, Shakespeare’s writings are the human retellings  of faery lore, Shakespeare being one of the few mortals allowed into the confidence of the fae.  There are also other “human” faery tales that are mentioned as a part […]

My Review Spells begins about six months after Wings ends.  The interesting mythology that I so loved about the first books continues in this one.  Some of it is blended with more traditional mythology and some of it is blended with reality as we know it and that makes the entire premise of the book that […]

My Review I came across this series when it appeared on my reading class for a literature class called Women of Faerie.  I love all things magical and fae so I was excited to read this series. From a technical standpoint, this book was written from the point of view of a narrator, something that I […]

My Review I have always been a fan of Arthurian tales, loving the rich mythology of the time.  Dawnflight, first in a continuing epic series, brings together Gyan and Arthur.  All of the legendary characters are present in this novel, but they were “created” in a whole different way.  Headlee’s retelling speaks of possible reality, […]

My Review Oracle of Philadelphia is the debut novel from author Elizabeth Corrigan and the first in the Earthbound Angels series.  I have read a few books lately with the “angels and demons” theme and I love that this book was still refreshing and new and completely unique with its take on Christian mythology.  Carrie, as […]

My Review Wings of Redemption is a novella from the upcoming Return to Sanctuary series from author Sarah Gilman.  Set in a demon colony just outside Quebec, Wings takes the theme of “lovers from different worlds” to another level!  Beyond the fact that Saffron is human and Kes is an archangel, Saffron’s associations make her highly unlikely to […]

My Sparkling Misfortune

My Sparkling Misfortune

My Review My Sparkling Misfortune is the first in the Lakeland Knight series, and is a refreshing take on the fantasy and magic genre.  Instead of being told as a hero’s tale, it is the tale of a would-be villain.  Despite his “villain” status, Lord Arkus is a likeable character around whom the story is told.  Without […]

My Review Fated is the second book in the Bloodstone Saga and is every bit as wonderful as the first book.  Macy is back in Pasadena, living her current life and waiting for her new Daedal to come into her life again.  From the moment Macy meets her, things begin to go very differently than […]
