Review: Made for Sin by Stacia Kane

Review: Made for Sin by Stacia Kane

Stacia Kane has been taunting readers with the prospect of a new DOWNSIDE GHOSTS novel for FAR too long by constantly referencing “book 6” in blog posts, listing the release date as TBA on her website, and don’t even get me started on GoodReads’ catalogue entry.

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

It’s rare to get a really good first installment in an urban fantasy series—too much stuff has to happen.

Review: Ash by Shannon Mayer (@TheShannonMayer, @HiJinksInk)

ASH is a backstory / fill-in-the-blanks installment, so even though it’s book 6, timeline-wise the events take place in-between WINDBURN and ROOTBOUND, but you kinda need to read the latter first in order to understand this volume’s plot.
