Review: “The 13th Hex” (Hexworld #0.5) by Jordan L. Hawk

This delicious short story, packed with adventure and romance, can be read at any point during the Hexworld series. I enjoyed this look into how Rook and Dominic became working (and more) partners, and as an added bonus, Cicero (from Hexbreaker) is a prominent character. Hawk packs a solid bit of worldbuilding into this fantasyContinue reading “Review: “The 13th Hex” (Hexworld #0.5) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Seeker of Truth (SPECTR #3.3) by Jordan L. Hawk

For the first time this series, the dream team is splitting up of their own accord. Caleb stays in New Orleans to assist Zahira on a case for SPECTR while John heads out of town in search of clues to his own identity. Both separate plots of this novella are satisfying, and Hawk gives thoseContinue reading “Review: Seeker of Truth (SPECTR #3.3) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Hexbreaker (Hexworld #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

In other reviews, I’ve raved about the ways Hawk includes diversity in his fiction. For this series, I’ve found something else to adore — the effortless way that the reader is absorbed in the worldbuilding with no awkward breaks for exposition or the dreaded info-dump. Could there be a bit more explanation for some things?Continue reading “Review: Hexbreaker (Hexworld #1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Bringer of Night (SPECTR #3.2) by Jordan L. Hawk

After all the shenanigans that have occurred over the course of this series, a run-of-the-mill murder mystery and case of mistaken identity are almost too boring for our heroes. Except nothing about this string of murders is normal, and John, Caleb, and Gray have friends (both old and new) along for the ride. There’s yetContinue reading “Review: Bringer of Night (SPECTR #3.2) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Stalker of Shadows (SPECTR #3.1) by Jordan L. Hawk

The first installment of the next SPECTR epic brings us something completely different — and all the best parts of exactly the same. John is now the character who must wait patiently while Caleb and Gray get to do what they do best (eat demons). They’re in a new setting, which is why everyone isContinue reading “Review: Stalker of Shadows (SPECTR #3.1) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: SPECTR: The Complete Second Series by Jordan L. Hawk

Includes the titles: Mocker of Ravens Dancer of Death Drinker of Blood Breaker of Chains Shaker of Earth I read this collection even faster than I did the first one. It’s too bad I can’t give it an even higher rating than 5 stars. John, Caleb, and Gray are back to doing what they doContinue reading “Review: SPECTR: The Complete Second Series by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: SPECTR: The Complete First Series by Jordan L. Hawk

Includes the titles: Hunter of Demons Master of Ghouls Reaper of Souls Eater of Lives Destroyer of Worlds Summoner of Storms Honestly, my review can be boiled down like this: I purchased the series as a full set, but the books were so good that I didn’t want to pause in between to write individualContinue reading “Review: SPECTR: The Complete First Series by Jordan L. Hawk”

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: Balefire (Whyborne & Griffin #10) by Jordan L. Hawk

Ten is a solid, round number, so I thought this would be the final book in the series. I was disappointed that the grand finale didn’t look like it would take place in the city of Widdershins, but I figured out early in the story that this was not the end of the series. That’sContinue reading “Review: Balefire (Whyborne & Griffin #10) by Jordan L. Hawk”

Review: Draakenwood (Whyborne & Griffin #9) by Jordan L. Hawk

We’re back in Widdershins for Whyborne & Griffin’s latest adventure, but this time it’s the old families who are the targets. When Whyborne is accused of murder, he and his allies must not only clear his name, but also prevent the rise of a great evil. Plenty of familiar faces appear in this story, includingContinue reading “Review: Draakenwood (Whyborne & Griffin #9) by Jordan L. Hawk”
