Read my reviews of the previous books in the SPECTR series: SPECTR: The Complete First Series SPECTR: The Complete Second Series Stalker of Shadows (#3.1) Bringer of Night (#3.2) Seeker of Truth (#3.3) Because it had been a long time since I visited this world, I happily re-read the first three books in SPECTR series 3 before divingContinue reading “Book Review: Harvester of Bones (SPECTR #3.4) by Jordan L.

Book Review: Unseen (Rath & Rune #2) by Jordan L. Hawk

Read my review of the first book in the Rath & Rune series, Unhallowed. We return to Widdershins to continue the quest set up by the events in the first book.

Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

Hawk granted my wish and returned to his clever and imaginative Hexworld series—except moving the action to a new time and place. Prohibition Chicago is rife with story fodder, especially where magic is involved, and this book is no different. Hawk takes the traditional, in which a small-town guy escapes to the big city andContinue reading “Review: Blind Tiger (The Pride #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

A Year in Reading: 2020

As usual, I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the year to 50 books. That’s about a book a week, and combined with novellas and graphic novels, I usually end up with a final tally of around 100 books. Not bad. Makes me feel like something in my life is productive, and reading will alwaysContinue reading “A Year in Reading: 2020”

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.

Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk

Restless Spirits (Book 1) I’m diving into another series by Hawk, and I couldn’t be happier.

I enjoyed the early interactionsContinue reading “Review: Spirits Trilogy by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk

“A Christmas Hex” (Book 2.5) This is one of those stories that could have worked any time of year — but the fact that it occurred around Christmas made it all the sweeter. After reading the full-length novels in this series, it was easy to forget that witches and familiars in New York City didContinue reading “Review: Hexworld Stories by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk

Now that Hawk has thoroughly established the rules of the Hexworld series, it was time to start breaking them.

Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk

Every book in this series gets better on multiple levels. Hawk continues to pull threads on the over-arching plot, making it more intriguing and convoluted without losing any of the believability of such events in the world he has created. In tandem, each romance both supports and is affected by the greater events. I wasContinue reading “Review: Hexslayer (Hexworld #3) by Jordan L. Hawk”
