Review – Chasing the Shadows by Keri Arthur

Keri Arthur kept the pace of Hearts in Darkness going in this third installment of the Nikki & Michael series. The couple has had their ups and downs, especially as Michael is trying to do everything he can to keep Nikki safe, even if it means hiding his work from her. For anyone who read the first two books, you know that Nikki isn’t one […]

Review – Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

When I read the back of Lover Awakened and realized it was Zsadist’s story, I was hesitant to read it. He wasn’t exactly the most well-loved of the Brothers in Dark Lover andLover Eternal but I couldn’t stand not knowing his story (especially since I wanted to keep reading the series and knew I’d miss a chunk of the story by not reading this book). […]

Review – Rise from Darkness by Ciara Knight

In the beginning, Rise from Darkness intrigued me. We meed Gaby, a girl plagued with the memory of her mother’s death and lost in her own reality. She hides behind her art, which even then reveals this troubled past of hers. All she wants is to have a normal life (cue cliche). But that’s not how life works, especially when you have a fallen angel […]

Review – Fevered Souls by S.K. Falls

Fevered Souls isn’t exactly a book, per say. Instead, it’s a collection of novellas bound together as a series with each novella as an episode — not something I’m quite used to. I’ve never really been a fan of novellas since a) I finish them too quickly, and b) I usually don’t get attached enough to the characters or the writing style to want to […]

Review – Shudder by Samantha Durante

Review – Shudder by Samantha Durante

After finishing Shudder, I’d definitely have to say that it was better than book 1 of the series, Stitch. The novel picks up right after Stitch with Alessa and Isaac, with new twists and turns, and even a couple new characters. Durante brings this dystopian world to life through her characters and world-building, keeping her strong writing style flowing from Stitch to Shudder. If you like […]

Review – Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

Review – Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward

Now that’s what I call a beast. I read the first few Black Dagger Brotherhood books back to back because I just couldn’t put them down. In book 2 we get to know a new Brother, Rhage. Whereas the first book,Dark Lover, set up the world of Caldwell, New York in terms of the vampires and lessers, Lover Eternal jumped right in with the action. It’s […]

Review – Hearts in Darkness by Keri Arthur

Nikki and Michael are on the hunt again. What begins as two separate jobs turns into yet another dive into the supernatural world. Hearts in Darkness begins about six months after Dancing with the Devil ended, with the duo separated because Michael thought it was best–not that he consulted Nikki on that decision. The flow from one book to the next is seamless, so the time […]
