Carniepunk Partial Review: The Werewife by Jaye Wells & The Inside Man by Nicole Peeler

Carniepunk Partial Review: The Werewife by Jaye Wells & The Inside Man by Nicole Peeler

*** I am sure it is a little weird to break down reviews like this, but Carniepunk has 14 stories total.  Typically I do anthologies with a break down of each story, but lets face it.  If I do 14 reviews in one post it is going to look insane and I might be insane by the time I am done!! =)  This Urban Fantasy anthology has an epic list of authors and I can promise that every story will… Read more »

Book Review: A Spy to Die For (Assassins Guild, #2) by Kris DeLake

Book Review: A Spy to Die For (Assassins Guild, #2) by Kris DeLake

~Book Review~ An intergalactic spy thriller A Spy to Die For  by Kris DeLake was a soft romance and a good read. I enjoyed the description of the planets they visited and could feel their gritty realism. Places of thieves and lost identities. It made me want to linger there and see in more detail how anyone lived in such shadows. The Assassins Guild a very thought provoking “government” of assassins and spies. I really feel their objective could have… Read more »

Book Review: A Captain and a Corset (Steam Guardians #2) by Mary Wine

Book Review: A Captain and a Corset (Steam Guardians #2) by Mary Wine

Book Review I have to admit that I was surprised how hard A Captain and a Corset was for me to read.  I often felt like I was stuck in a cliche world leaving me quite confused.  The characters seemed well written, but just didn’t have the spark and flare that normally keeps me completely engaged in the story. Bion Donkova and Sophia Stevenson try to deny their attraction to one another, but it is impossible.  They come from very… Read more »

Book Review The Cursed (Black Swan #1) by Alyssa Day

Book Review The Cursed (Black Swan #1) by Alyssa Day

Book Review Alyssa Day’s newest addition to Paranormal Romance is The Cursed.  The Cursed is the first book in The League of the Black Swan Series.  Reviewing the first book in a new series is always a challenge for me.  Everything is not always explained and sometimes aspects of the story can feel incomplete….because they can be filled in later.   Many of my reservations about not being completely fulfilled with the story – I think – is due to… Read more »

Book Review Heart of Iron (London Steampunk, #2) by Bec McMaster

Book Review Heart of Iron (London Steampunk, #2) by Bec McMaster

♦Book Review♦ Heart of Iron picks up a couple of years after the first book in this series, Kiss of Steel, ends and sweeps up another perspective.  Lena’s and Will’s – to be exact.  Heart of Iron certainly was higher on the steampunk romance feel than the first book in this series and I thought It added a nice touch.  I love the overall conflict of these characters – both internal and situational.  This world is really becoming an addiction… Read more »
