Review: So I Married a Sorcerer by Kerrelyn Sparks

Review: So I Married a Sorcerer by Kerrelyn Sparks So I Married a Sorcerer Author: Kerrelyn Sparks Reviewer: Una Rating: A-  What I’m Talking About: The Embraced series is so far a truly fascinating mythology.  So I Married a Sorcerer is an exciting and thrilling sequel to How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days. First, I really enjoy this world.  Those born on a night when the two moons are touching (so called “embraced”) are born with special abilities.  Unless born on this night, you will be a normal human person.  The main continent is predominately ruled by men and the culture worships the sun god.  They kill those that are embraced.  On a small island, cloisters...

At thirty-six Alec had been running the company for years, increasing the value and earnings of the family’s dying business well beyond expectations.

Review: Strangehold by Rene Sears

Review: Strangehold by Rene Sears Strangehold Author: Rene Sears Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Strangehold is a fascinating series debut.  I enjoyed this introduction to a world of witches and Faerie and look forward to more. Let me say first that this novella could have been a full novel.  There is such a rich world with fascinating characters and politics, some elements could have been stretched out a bit in the storytelling.  That being said, the story wasn’t lacking despite its shorter length.  In fact, I’d say the book had a succinct feeling – the story flowed and conveyed the twists and turns without a lot of embellishment.  I enjoyed Ms....

Review: Say Yes to the Scot Anthology

Review: Say Yes to the Scot Anthology Say Yes to the Scot: A Highland Wedding Box Set Author: Lecia Cornwall, Anna Harrington, May McGoldrick, Sabrina York Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I picked up this anthology so I could read the contribution by Lecia Cornwall.  I love her Highland Fairy Tale series.  However, the other three novellas were just as enchanting and enjoyable. How a Lass Wed a Highlander is a novella in the Highland Fairy Tale series.  I thoroughly enjoyed this reimaging of The Princess and the Pea.  I liked the interplay between Cait and the other brides.  Cait’s innate kindness was a source of inner strength for her.  Alex’s stubborn and...
