Book Review: Tempted by Fire by Erin Kellison

Book Review: Tempted by Fire by Erin Kellison

  Tempted by Fire is Erin Kellison’s first book in her Dragons of Bloodfire series. Kellison brilliantly lined the pages with deep character and world building, creating a page turner until the end. My least favorite thing about this book was the length. I wanted more! Even with the lean number of pages, Kellison manages to pack a surprising amount of back story for several of the characters onto the pages. Their backstories really made the characters into people you wanted to know more about. Kellison pulls away from the typical romance cliche of the two love interests having a falling… Read more »

Audiobook Review – Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

Audiobook Review – Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

  Discount Armageddon is the first book in Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series. With a lot of worldbuilding and characters lining the pages this book was a “down the middle” for me. I had been eyeballing this book for quite some time. Honestly, the cover itself invoked the same kind of mixed reaction that reading the book invoked. Kind of a mixture of WOW and SAY WHAT? Verity was a great strong female lead, but I felt the focus on her body image was a bit over the top. Maybe it was because I understand the rules of the ballroom dancing that… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels is the first book in The Genie and the Wizard series.  This is a DNF review. After a very strenuous attempt to listen and make it though, I got to about the 1/2 way mark before deciding I just needed to move on. It has been a very long time since I have posted a DNF review. Making it just short of the half-way mark before throwing the towel in is a big deal for me and I feel I need to speak my mind about my thoughts.  After all ….  that is kind… Read more »

Book Review: Siren’s Call by Jayne Castle

Book Review: Siren’s Call by Jayne Castle

Siren’s Call is Jayne Castle‘s fourth book in her Rainshadow series. Set in a fascinating world, Siren’s Call pulled me in and didn’t let me go! Siren’s Call is actually the first book I have read by this author and I was more than pleasantly surprised. Set in a unique world where aliens are no longer present, but their mark remains sets an intriguing setting for this story. With fascinating imagery being alluring in its own right, it is not the only strong aspect in this book. Outside the brilliant world building are equally enjoyable characters. Ella’s personality and secretive lifestyle… Read more »

Audiobook Review: An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary

Audiobook Review: An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary

An Imperfect Witch by Debora Geary is the first book in her Witch Central series. With a light feel full of family and growth, this audiobook was a joy to listen to. An Imperfect Witch was kind of a random pick for me and not my normal go-to full of higher magic and action. This soft and sweet listen doesn’t quite fit into one genre either. It had a touch of magic and a touch of mystery, but overall this book was really about family and personal growth. It also touched on some of the more raw pieces of myself… Read more »

Book Review – The Stones of Kaldaar by Tameri Etherton

Book Review – The Stones of Kaldaar by Tameri Etherton

The Stones of Kaldaar is book one in Tameri Etherton’s Song of the Swords series. This fantasy transported me to another world and kept me turning the page until the end. I didn’t know what to expect from The Stones of Kaldaar. It was big and heavy and it felt so good holding this beautiful book in my hands. Although, I did seem to forget how hard it is to hold one of these bad boys and eat at the same time! I appear to be spoiled by my kindle. However, not even that swayed me from toting this book… Read more »
