Stolen - Heart of Dread, #2

Stolen started out really well. It has a fast paced start and it was going very well. But, somewhere along the way it got lost. The story took a turn for the worst and just started to drag. I really loved the story. It made me think about t...

The Terminals

The Terminals was supposed to be an action packed, pulse-thudding thriller. But, what I got was a water down story where people do things with no thought. This one started out so well. You have an enhanced girl trying to get away from the b...

The Mage Sister

The author, Jeanne Bradford, did a great job of describing the events and places in the story. I really liked the concept of mage brides and girls having this magic and then a man magic being connected to her. I really liked how I was inves...

Valley of Fires - The Conquered Earth, #3

This is the third book, and possibly the last, in A Conquered Earth series. This series has a very complex world and has multiple story lines going on at the same time so it would be best to start this series at the first book to understand...

Hidden Wings - Hidden Wings Series Book One

Sway

The tagline of this book had me pulled in, "Boy Meets Girl…Boy Charms Girl...For Someone Else". So going into this book I was thinking it was going to be some sappy romance book, but was surprised when it wasn't. Jesse is a fouled mouth jer...

So after the first two chapters I started to get really scared. I’ve had issues with books that are over like 2 POVs and this has 5! But that was fine. Each character had their own very distinct voice. So it didn't mess the story up and it...

The Fire Seekers - The Babel Trilogy, #1

Feuds - The Feuds Series, #1
