The Mark of the Tala - The Twelve Kingdoms, #1

Ok folks this one's a doozy. The first 190 pages are set for the teen crowd. Then at page 191 it jumps head first into the romance it was marketed to be. And well it holds nothing back as it has sexual scenes that would rival any other roma...

Dead Man's Hand Anthology

I have to admit that when it comes to my reading preferences, I am a bit of a girl. So, the western "shoot out at the O.K. Coral" themed read that I expected from this anthology was a bit out of my comfort zone...to say the least. What I di...

Half-Off Ragnarok - An Incryptid Novel, #3

Copperhead - Ironskin, #2

Copperhead by Tina Connolly is enchanting, but lacks finesse in its pacing. I enjoyed that the sequel gave more of an explanation of the fey, and the real feelings of the people towards the fey, which was sort of glossed over in Ironskin. H...
