Review: Head Above Water by Hailey Edwards

Head Above Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Head Above Water is… awesome. I was really excited to get back to Cam and Graeson. Their story is compelling, wrought with sexual tension, and contains a twist in their romance I did NOT see coming!!! The over-arching series conflict with […]

Review: Blazing Earth by Terri Brisbin

Blazing Earth Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: In this third installment of the Stone Circles, the tone of the novel changes. Though I liked the journey of Tolan and Thea, there was a more somber feeling and desperation to the world.  It seems the plight of our heroes has […]

Review: Trapped by Alison Aimes

Trapped Author: Alison Aimes Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’m going to put this right up front because Alison Aimes’ debut book Trapped actually came with a warning right up front.  I was puzzled by it. It doesn’t read like a trigger warning, instead, sounding more like a promotional blurb.  At the […]

Review: Clockwork Samurai by Jeannie Lin

Clockwork Samurai Author: Jeannie Lin Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I have waited for the sequel to Gunpowder Alchemy, the novel ended with so many questions.  Suffice to say, Clockwork Samurai does not disappoint, though I will say the plot thickens. At the conclusion of the previous novel I was left with […]

Review: By Hook or By Crook by Eleri Stone + bonus review

By Hook or By Crook Author: Eleri Stone Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Note: The author and Carina Press put out a free prequel novella, The Adventures of Cassius Flynn and Molly McGuire, which I recommend reading prior to By Hook or By Crook, as it shares quite a bit of […]

Review: Heart Fire by Robin D. Owens

Heart Fire Author: Robin D. Owens Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Psst. I missed a Celta’s Heartmates book last year because my reading schedule was full. Well, before the next title releases, Heart Legacy, on November 3, 2015, I HAD to read Heart Fire. Because, one does not simply skip a book […]

Review: Raging Sea by Terri Brisbin

Raging Sea Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Even though I loved William in the first novel (and still do), I feel that Raging Sea is better than the previous novel, Rising Fire for several reasons. First, the connection and journey of Ran and Soren were stronger, more complex, and […]

Review: Breakout by Ann Aguirre

Breakout Author: Ann Aguirre Reviewer:  Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Breakout picks up right where Havoc left off, completing the Dred Chronicles.  The series should be read in order.  New readers of the trilogy will have the luxury of reading the series without the publication gaps the rest of us have experienced.  However, […]
