Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased this book for full price. I happen to know that the author spends time every year in Longboat Key, Florida. Her love for this place shines through the pages of this entertaining book, filled to the brim with sweetness, humor, and just enough touches ofContinue reading “Review: This is Not a Horror Movie by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer

I’m not sure what I expected of this book, but it was about a million times better than I anticipated. The characters, story, and situation were more exciting than I could have imagined, and it all packed an amazing emotional punch at the end. It’s one of those harder to categorize books: not quite aContinue reading “Review: A Time to Rise by Tal Bauer”

Review: He Sees You When You’re Sleeping by Sara Dobie Bauer

Disclaimer: I am friends with this author; however, I purchased this ebook for full price. Another Christmas in July treat, except this novella is less sweet and more vaguely terrifying. Bauer manipulates the Santa Claus trope to create an otherworldly being who fulfills the role of Santa Claus but with significantly less cheer. Kris latchesContinue reading “Review: He Sees You When You’re Sleeping by Sara Dobie Bauer”

Review: The Quiet House (Black & Blue #2) by Lily Morton

A group of paranormal specialists and investigators are gathered at a supposedly haunted house. We’ve probably all read this story before. Except this version happens to include the mysterious and amazing Blue Billings, with boyfriend Levi and mentor Tom along for the ride. What results is decidedly more in the haunted and horrifying department thanContinue reading “Review: The Quiet House (Black & Blue #2) by Lily Morton”

Review: Alpha Protocol (Dark Tyrant #3) by C.R. Langille

Read my review of Dark Tyrant book 1, Canyon Shadows. Read my review of Dark Tyrant book 2, Consequence. Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; I received a free ebook version of this novel in exchange for an honest review. The post-apocalyptic mayhem continues as Dark Tyrant book 3 picks up almost immediately afterContinue reading “Review: Alpha Protocol (Dark Tyrant #3) by C.R. Langille”

Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

I was delighted to return to the world of Widdershins, eight years beyond the original series, and check in on my favorite fictional town. The librarians of the Ladysmith Museum were always a source of amused befuddlement for me during the original series, so I was excited that one of those librarians was a heroContinue reading “Review: Unhallowed (Rath & Rune #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Consequence (Dark Tyrant #2) by C.R. Langille

Disclaimer: I am friends with the author; however, I purchased a hardcopy version of this book for full price. This book picks up immediately after the events of Canyon Shadows, but is easily read as a stand-alone. It immediately grabbed me and sucked me in, with events that are all present-day and much narrower inContinue reading “Review: Consequence (Dark Tyrant #2) by C.R. Langille”

Review: Deosil (Whyborne & Griffin #11) by Jordan L. Hawk

This series closes out in a maelstrom (pun intended) of heroism, madness, horror, love, triumph, and just a few tentacles. Everything comes full-circle (pun also intended) as Whyborne and Griffin join with new and old allies to defend their home of Widdershins from the extra-dimensional Masters who have returned to reclaim what is theirs. BecauseContinue reading “Review: Deosil (Whyborne & Griffin #11) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman (Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club #2) by Theodora Goss

My biggest minor quibble from the previous book in this trilogy followed me to this one. I love the conceit of the book characters inserting their commentary into the writing, but it still reduces some of the tension since I know everyone survives to the end. That being said, this was still a tale filledContinue reading “Review: European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman (Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club #2) by Theodora Goss”
