Review: Storm Warrior by Dani Harper

Review: Storm Warrior by Dani Harper

Storm Warrior is a cute, light, paranormal romance with memorable characters and a delightful story that’s easy to like. The plot’s fairly straightforward which made the more complex Faerie lore easier to grasp and I loved that this book features a Grim! As omens of death their role in the paranormal world is somewhat limited; […]

Review: Spartan Frost by Jennifer Estep

Review: Spartan Frost by Jennifer Estep

It’s rare enough when I get to experience a story from a male character’s POV but it’s an even more unusual occurrence in Young Adult so when Spartan Frost and I crossed paths there was only one possible outcome. This novella needed to be read. After inhaling the first chapter, I was happy that I’d just finished Crimson Frost because the beginning of this short could have been a scene in the previous installment’s final battle.

Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Darkness & Light starts off with Jem married to this a$$hole named Peter. Her husband didn’t begin this story as a complete jerk but the speed at which he progressed from “there’s something off about this guy” to full-out “run for your life!” was staggering. I found it weird that it took 8 years for Peter’s crazy to surface in their marriage. Mind you, Jem seemed a little out there as well but in a wolf-like kind of way so I was ok with that.

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

I’ve always enjoyed Andrea’s character in the Kate Daniels series but other than her gun fetish she comes across as being a little too tame to be able to be a bona fide Urban Fantasy heroine. In Gunmetal Magic, we see an entirely different side to her because now she’s free from The Order’s rules and trying to embrace her beastkin blood.

Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Logan and Gwen’s long awaited first date finally takes place but as expected, in true Frost fashion, it blows up spectacularly. Too bad that spilling coffee onto the Spartan’s lap is the least of her problems. Gwen’s first meeting with her beau’s dad doesn’t exactly go well either; overprotective parents are one thing but arresting […]
