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.

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. He’s proven time and time again to be a storyteller I know I will enjoy, so I was excited to start fresh with a new batch of characters in another historical paranormal romance setting. 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. The events of this book took elements of familiars and witches to new levels, in intriguing ways that made for a mystery that acted as the perfect backdrop for the burgeoning relationship between Isaac and Bill.Continue reading “Review: Hexhunter (Hexworld #4) by Jordan L. Hawk”

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”

Review: Hexmaker (Hexworld #2) by Jordan L. Hawk

As usual, Hawk excels in crafting unique characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and root for. On the surface, this book is a typical tale of two people from different social strata falling in love and dealing with the barriers between them. But there’s also a bonus police procedural plot andContinue reading “Review: Hexmaker (Hexworld #2) by Jordan L. Hawk”

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”
