Book Review: Forgotten In Darkness (Scimitar Magi #2) by Zoe Forward

Book Review: Forgotten In Darkness (Scimitar Magi #2) by Zoe Forward

Forgotten in Darkness is Zoe Forward‘s second installment in her Scimitar Magi series.  You can read the review of the first book in this series, Dawn of a Dark Knight HERE. The pages of Forgotten in Darkness are lined with  Egyptian history, legends, and gods adding depth and unexpected twists to every page.  As we learn more about the ancient Magi and their history, I feel myself falling into the world with them.  Forward does an incredible job describing every character with their own uniqueness and quirks and this does not stop with just the protagonists.  The villain in Forgotten… Read more »

Audiobook Review: A Cast-Off Coven by Juliet Blackwell

Audiobook Review: A Cast-Off Coven by Juliet Blackwell

A Cast-Off Coven is Juliet Blackwell‘s second installment in A Witchcraft Mystery series.  You can check out the review for the fist book – Secondhand Spirits here. A Cast-Off Coven was an enjoyable story.  With high mystery elements and great characters the audiobook flowed nicely.  Juliet Blackwell does a great job executing her story.  She makes you feel like part of the action and I easily connected with the protagonist – Lily Ivory.  Lily is a highly likable character that ends up in the middle of some interesting situations.  Lily’s character had some great character growth in  A Cast-Off Coven… Read more »

Book Review: Micah and Mrs. Miller by Heather Long

Book Review: Micah and Mrs. Miller by Heather Long

 Micah and Mrs. Miller is Heather Long‘s third installment in her Fevered Hearts series.  So the title pretty much states who this book follows, so I promise not to be redundant and tell you again.  😉 The back story and conflict in the Fevered Hearts series is brilliantly enchanting.  I love Long’s world concept with the Fevered.  Surviving a tragic illness and coming out with a special super power is both a traumatic and amazing outcome. Conflicts in Micah and Mrs. Miller are at an all time high.  The Cane’s and their community are under attack and they will do… Read more »

Novella Review: Chenoire (A Short Story) by Susannah Sandlin

Chenoire by Susannah Sandlin is short story that takes place out in Louisiana bayou.  You can check out the authors inspiration story HERE – you don’t want to miss this guest post!   I didn’t really think too much about what this book was about before I dove into it.  What I got was a brilliant surprise!  Sandlin submerges us with the sounds, smells, and tastes of true bayou feel.   She sprinkles in some paranormal and romance making it a great short story.  The characters were well defined in the short amount of time and I felt the story… Read more »

Book Review: The Furies: A Thriller by Mark Alpert

Book Review: The Furies: A Thriller by Mark Alpert

The Furies: A Thriller by Mark Alpert is a stand alone thriller/sci-fi type of paranormal.  I flipped pages.  I consumed the words.  This book made me think and discuss the contents, history, and story.  What more can one ask for? I am going to have a little confessional first.  I kind of broke my own rule about reading reviews on this book before writing my own.  I couldn’t help it! I am just a weak individual.  OK.  Cut me some slack!  Before discussing this further I am going to tell you that I come from a Stephen King, Christopher Pike,… Read more »

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Wildfire by Mina Khan is a nontraditional type of paranormal.  With dragon shifters and cowboys set in Texas…how could one go wrong? Wildfire is a great example of what I love about self-published books.  It keeps that nontraditional and free spirited edge to every page.  I think the author nails it by calling it “a paranormal mystery with romantic elements. It is not a traditional romance.”   Although it certainly did have some romantic elements, I would certainly not define it as romance either.  It had a slight Urban Fantasy feel with the mystery background and character development. Lynn is… Read more »
