You often hear that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but lets be honest. Many of us are guilty of the practice. The cover is what entices you to pick a book up out of a stack in the bookstore. You don’t always have someone in your ear detailing the synopsis. So I’ll freely admit that the cover […]

In the first book of the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon (though not the first book in the universe, I learned) I’ve begun to warm up to her writing and the hype around these books. Night Pleasures is a tale of Kyrian of Thrace, the long-ago friend of Julian Alexander who we met last in Fantasy Lover. With Kyrian comes Amanda, sister […]
Fans of the traditional epic fantasy akin to Tolkien and George R.R. Martin, fear not! I have a new book for you. The Forgetting Moon is exactly the kind of sweeping fantasy that we all know and love and this book is a monster (like it’s REALLY long) so plenty to keep you busy.

If a sick cousin wasn’t enough, Miss Lucy Pickett might just have a […]

As a whole, the premise worked well enough, incorporating elements of Greek mythology and ancient […]
I won’t bore you with a summary of this book because it’s quite simple: vengeful daughter seeks to destroy her enemies. Now while that alone could hold endless possibilities with plenty of action and intrigue, instead it was just plain boring. For nearly 95% of the book I questioned whether it was worth continuing or not.
