Moonglow - Darkborn Legacy, #1

This is the first book I've ever received for review that I couldn't make it all the way through. I made it to about page 200, and I feel that's a fair enough length to get a handle on the premise. For a beautiful cover, the storyline is me...

Reaper's Legacy - Toxic City, #2

I found myself really enjoying the first book in the Toxic City series, London Eye. So when Reaper's Legacy came in the mail I jumped into it right away. Where London Eye had intrigue, suspense, and a smidgen of X-Men, I fell into a lull an...

The Sweetest Dark

I had very little back story before beginning The Sweetest Dark, having only read the synopsis on the back cover, and I'm glad I did. The less you know the better. Orphan and ex-insane asylum patient Lora (Eleanor) can hear sounds and songs...

The Grass King's Concubine

The main character of this story is someone searching for her roots. As such, this character is easy to relate with. It’s set in a culture that seems to be at a cross-roads between migratory and settled, and where water rights mean everythi...

Wilde's Fire - Darkness Falls, #1

I was kind of worried about Wilde's Fire because of the length. I haven't had a lot of good experiences when it comes to books that exceed 250 pages. So this one being 324 made me very scared to get started. But after reading this book I wa...

The Secret Weapon - Leslie Burrows, #3

The Secret Weapon was another great young adult read. It is the third book in the Leslie Burrows series by Shannon Rouchelle. This is definitely one of those books that if you try and do an in-depth review you will end up giving away part o...

The Girl and the Dragon

I loved this book! Alice M. Roelke really brought my heart into this beautiful story. Hasn't every young girl dreamed of "shape shifting," and either being able to have as a companion, or shift into a giant winged draconic beauty? This stor...

Girls' Night Out - Faeriewalker Novella

For starters: I've been wanting to read a book by Jenna Black for a while now. So, I thought: why not start with a short story? You can get a taste for her writing, and if it's not to my taste at least it won't last long. Well, I was pretty...

Green Angel - Green Angel, #1

A very odd, very short little story, and aside from the obvious 'time heals most' message, it's kind of sweet.  It is nice metaphor for the message, and the imagery is good, but there's so little of it, I'm not sure what to say about i...

Froggy Style - A F**ked-Up Fairy Tale

Wrayth - A Book of the Order

Kudos to Ms. Ballantine! One of the tightest books I’ve read in awhile. Ballantine tells a good tale in this novel of intrigue. Strong characters and a strong plot entice a reader into the middle of the book, and before one knows it, the st...

Saving Moby Dick - The Enchanted Attic, #2

Saving Moby Dick was a good story with a good pace. How the twins and Walter deal with Captain Ahab, how the characters develop and interact with the people around them really makes the story work well. Having read Facing the Hunchback of N...

The Emperor's Soul

Conspiracy, politics, and a difference of opinion over the Forgers craft. The Emperor's Soul is the first book that I've read by Brandon Sanderson and it is a good one. The back and forth debate between Shai and Gaotona, the longest serving...

Revenge Of The Horseclans - Horseclans, #3

Revenant Eve

OK, the title is a little misleading. If you are a horror fan, like me, the word “revenant” conjures up vengeful spirits, out for blood (cue scary music). While this book does involve spirits, demons, vampires and betrayals, that is not wha...
