Black Ice - The Midgard Series, #2

Black Ice is the sequel to the novel Mist by Susan Kinnard. I adored the character of Mist because of what a strong female character she is. This book doesn't disappoint as far as action goes. The character of Loki was so wicked but intrigu...

Gods and Monsters - Mythbreaker

Gods and Monsters is the first book I have read by Chuck Wendig and it is one of the best books I have read. The characters were crazy in the best possible way. I really liked that Sam stuck by Fitz through all of the craziness going on. Th...

Unbound - Magic Ex Libris: Book Three

Mr. Hines takes no prisoners when it comes to writing a boldly wild tale about passwords, clues, and magic. Unbound is a novel just swirling of characters (old and new), far out places (not the ‘60’s kind), as well as having a plot that scr...
