Spotlight & Interview ~ Titanshade by Dan Stout

If everything is going according to plan, I am currently sitting beachside with a copy of Titanshade in one hand and a margarita in the other! **If everything is not going according to the plan, someone might want to send bail money.  After vacation edit: I survived. No bail money required!! I was grateful enough to start Titanshade beachside and hope to finish it by the end of the month!  But, you are not here to talk about my beach adventures…. Read more »

Book Review ~ Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

Book Review ~ Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews

All good things must come to an end…..Magic Triumphs is Ilona Andrews’ final addition to the Kate Daniels series. WEEPS SILENTLY I might be a little sad but honestly, I am would rather authors end a story in their image and not keep it going just because they felt they HAD to. Magic Triumphs ties up a lot of the ongoing conflicts but left some windows open. Personally, I am cool with this as they have begun at least one spin-off… Read more »

Operation – Support Authors Affected by the Shutdown

Operation – Support Authors Affected by the Shutdown

Here we are making history and NOT the good kind. The US government has been shut down for over 30 days and although I know not everyone is feeling the pinch directly, we all know people that are. Most authors work more than full time to make ends meet and those with family members or those that work at entities directly affected by this catastrophe are being hit extra hard.

Book Review ~ Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse

Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse is the first book in The Sixth World series and kicks off with an amazing start.

Trail of Lightning is not only a well-written story, but the characters are dynamic and each page seemed to bring an unexpected turn. Trail of Lightning follows… Read more »

Book Review – Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews

Book Review – Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews

Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews is the first book in The Iron Covenant series. The Iron Covenant series breaks off from the Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. Somehow, I got behind and missed this book. As a stocker of all things Ilona Andrews, I was going to go ahead and skip ahead of the newly released Daniels book, but I received a severe warning that I HAD TO READ THIS from fellow book junky, Tanya (from Rantings of a Reading Addict)….
