As Red as Blood

This book intrigued me from reading the synopsis but as soon as I got it in my hands and started reading, I was left confused with no understanding of what was happening and going on. Maybe because this was translated from a Finnish was the...

Never Missing, Never Found

Amanda knows how to spin a story and I’m glad I continue to read her stories. I was excited when I read the back cover of “Never Missing, Never Found”, but I was a little weary when I got the book and realized it’s the same author that wrot...

Beware That Girl

I was so excited to get this book from both BEA and Night Owl Reviews. But what I found was a book that was way different than I thought it was going to be. “Beware That Girl” is full of abuse and it seems that that is the main plot. Almost...

So, this one just didn't work for me. It's the same old story about someone hunting down and killing teens. This book starts out pretty well, but also falls apart pretty fast, too. The characters were uninteresting and it just kinda got to...

Dumah's Demons - AngelFire Chronicles, #1.5
