Book Review: The Dragon’s Heart by Eden Ashe

Book Review: The Dragon’s Heart by Eden Ashe

The Dragon’s Heart by Eden Ashe is the first book in her Dragon Lore series. I loved this new world filled with surly sexy dragons and cannot wait to read more in this series. I am going to be a bit “me” here and be overly honest. I didn’t expect much from this book and I don’t know why. For whatever reason my assumptions fell on the side of “this is going to be full of tropes” about Alpha-hole males and women that take their shit. I was so wrong. This was a great story and the writing is extremely wonderful…. Read more »

Book Review: The Scarlett Legacy by K.N. Lee

Book Review: The Scarlett Legacy by K.N. Lee

The Scarlett Legacy is the first book in K.N. Lee’s Woodland Creek series. With a great premise, I had my hopes up that this would be a great new dark paranormal, but it held nothing but disappointment. I felt The Scarlett Legacy was one I was truly destined to love. After hearing about it at a panel and the book being described as dark paranormal with maybe a touch of horror and gangster wizards. I was excited to dive into this new world. I dove right in and unfortunately the water wasn’t deep enough and damned if it didn’t hurt… Read more »

Book Review of Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Book Review of Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Allegiance of Honor is Nalini Singh’s 15th book in her Psy-Changeling series. This series is one of my favorites and one that is always worth a re-read. Allegiance of Honor made my inner fan girl squeal and roll around with delight. Allegiance of Honor truly was a unique installment into the Psy-Changeline series. Historically each book has been over one couple with an ongoing backstory that carries over into each. Allegiance of Honor was like taking a stroll through the currently Psy-Changeling world and getting to made periodic stops to gather inside information on a variety of established characters. It was… Read more »

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia is thriller with some paranormal roots. Focused on a certain location with a mighty entity, who happened to have some serious sibling rivalry issues, Rosamilia takes you on a unique journey into the dark side. Chelsea Avenue is an entertaining read. I love horror and thrillers, especially when a paranormal aspect is mingled in. The point-of-views bounced around to different characters, all of whom survived a building fire at the club Murphy’s Law  in 1987. Rosamilia does a great job tying everything together and the ending was a lot of fun and pleasantly disturbing. The only… Read more »

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Staked by Kevin Hearne is the eighth book in his Urban Fantasy series, the Iron Druid Chronicles. If you are a consumer of urban fantasy and have not picked up this series yet, SHAME ON YOU. Especially, if you are consuming audiobooks. Staked might be my favorite in this series and yet I cannot quite put my finger on why. Maybe it was the how the backstory has progressed and grown. Maybe it was simply the combination of humor and fantastic world building. Maybe it was the wide variety of characters that I have truly come to feel connected to…. Read more »

Horror Book Review: Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland

Horror Book Review: Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland

    Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland is a full out horror that brings you in, traumatizes you and then haunts not only your nightmares but your day dreams as well. In other words…it does everything a horror book should do. Congenital Defects is NOT for the faint at heart. If you are the type of reader that searches blurbs and book information for trigger warnings, then this book is probably one you want to pass up. It pushes boundaries and social stigmas right off a fucking cliff, especially if you are the estrogen filled variety of human. A.D. Roland… Read more »
