Rain of the Ghosts - A Rain of the Ghosts Novel, #1

Rain of the Ghosts is what I call an OK read! It seems that the person telling the story is not a person at all! But you don’t find this out until you are well into the book. I think it would have make the book better if we had been told so...

Stormbringer - A Weather Witch Novel, #2

Stormbringer blew me away! I wasn't a big fan of book one in the Weather Witch series. But all is made up for it in this sequel to Weather Witch. So if you had issues like I did with book one, don't let that stop you from picking up this th...

Tidal - Watersong, #3

Tidal by Amanda Hocking puts a new spin on sirens and they are definitely something I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley. The world Hocking creates is imaginative and dark. But it isn't without its flaws. Gemma and Harper have had a hard...

Codex Born - Magic Ex Libris: Book Two

It’s hard when the beginning of a series comes on strong, like a locomotive, for a reader to decide if the second story is just as good. Well, wonder no more, this novel is even better! Tight action, great descriptions, and excellent conver...

The Chaos of Stars

Kiersten White creates such fun worlds and characters. The Chaos of Stars first drew me in because it deals with Egyptian mythology. This isn't an area I'm particularly knowledgeable in, but I have not encountered Egyptian mythology in Youn...

Delia's Shadow

This book is one of the best I’ve read in a long time, a mixture of San Francisco history after the great quake and fire in 1906, along with a bit of the supernatural which introduces Delia’s Shadow. Delia ran away from San Francisco after...

Twisted Myths - 20 Classic Stories with a Dark and Dangerous Heart

Most of the myths I'm not that familiar with, so I can't attest to how 'twisted' they are, but they are all easy to follow with lovely illustrations all the same. And as many of these stories are definitely old school with HARD names to rea...

Sunblind - Darkborn Legacy, #2

Persephone's Orchard - The Chrysomelia Stories, #1

Dark Talisman

I was so happy to grab Dark Talisman as I will be chatting with the author in Oct. This book is geared toward the Teen / Young Adult crowd but really reads as a go between from Middle School to Teen. It is a light fantasy read that children...

Lord of Mountains - Emberverse, #9

Lord of Mountains is the ninth book in the Emberverse series. I think the series needs to come to an end. The 9th book brought forth nothing really interesting. The characters didn't change much and nothing else did either. For the book bei...

The Impossibility of Tomorrow - An Incarnation Novel

Earthbound
