Review – Dark Life by Kat Falls

A Pleasant Surprise: I’m not one to read books in first person PoV when it’s a male protagonist but I really enjoyed this book. The main character, Ty, is passionate about what he believes in and tries to do the right thing, whether his parents and the government believe in it or not. He made reading Dark Life very enjoyable. Post-Apocalyptic […]

However, I found the first half of the book a tad hard to get through. But overall, looking at the whole scheme of things, it was a good novel. Wonderful […]

Review – Enchanting the Lady by Kathryne Kennedy

Take Victorian London, add a sprinkle of the myths of Merlin and you have a society based on magical power. Your rank is determined by how much you have–except the magic-immune shape-shifters like Terrence Blackwell, relic hunter and spy for the prince. But he’s only part of the story. Felicity Seymour was born of two very powerful parents but has […]

Review – Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

What can I say about this book that isn’t praise? It’s hard because I fell in love from the opening line through to the end, devouring one page after the next. This has been my first meeting with Mead’s writing and I have to say that I. Am. A. Fan. A paranormal story that isn’t over the top combined with […]
