Josh Reviews: Touch of the Demon by Diana Rowland

Josh Reviews: Touch of the Demon by Diana Rowland

Touch of the Demon confronts the demon question in a predictable but nonetheless fully-fleshed manner:  “Of course, demons do not have any ingrained evil.   Of course, they are cultural aesthetes that given the say in the matter can perform reprehensible deeds but there are some good apples and for just this reason one cannot […]

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

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.
