Review: Haunted by Amber Lynn Natusch

Review: Haunted by Amber Lynn Natusch

The unforgettable character that is Ruby is back for a second round in Haunted. Words can’t express how happy I am to have given indie author Amber Lynn Natusch’s werewolf series a chance. This second installment picks-up right where Caged left off and thank goodness for that. The suspense has been killing me! This book’s […]

Review: Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

Review: Blood Bound by Patricia Briggs

Review: Caged by Amber Lynn Natusch

Review: Caged by Amber Lynn Natusch

This book starts off slowly but by the end it absolutely howls with excellence! Caged is very much plot driven and when paired with Ruby’s outstanding voice this story quickly becomes next to impossible to put down. Natusch’s descriptions are spellbinding without putting even the smallest damper on the endless action. This novel is hilariously […]
