“Sinless” grabbed me from the first few pages. Within the pages is a wonderful fantasy that I just couldn't put down. It has a great blend of fantasy and a dystopian setting that is perfect for young adult readers. I really can't wait to re...

The Breaking Light - Split City Book 1

Recruits - Recruits, #1

I really wanted to like “Recruits”. The premise was very interesting but the writing just didn't work for me. The teens are eighteen years old. So for me, I think this should have been written as a high young adult to even new adult, but th...

The Rains - The Rains Brothers, #1

The Almost Girl - The Riven Chronicles, #1

The Fallen Prince - The Riven Chronicles, #2

Stone Rider
