I will happily read pages and pages of characters in a historical novel interact at a house party. Bonus points if half of them don’t like each other, the other half like each other a bit too much, and at least one person is outright rude. I enjoyed myself so much, following the point of […]
K.J. Charles has officially become one of “those authors,” in which I purchase the book on release day and stay up way too late finishing it on a work night. And I have zero regrets about it. This particular book references the concept of the Victorian-era melodrama multiple times. Then, it drags the reader along […]
This short story is available as a free download from K.J. Charles’ website. It is best read after Stormhaven (Whyborne & Griffin #3) by Jordan L. Hawk and the full collection of The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal by K.J. Charles because it contains significant spoilers for both.
This intertwining collection of “short stories” are a blast to read, and I love the idea of a Holmes and Watson style pairing working together in the occult realm.

Luckily, it was absolutely worth the wait. The conclusion to this trilogy brought together much of the story and plot elements from the previous books, […]
The following stories are available for free on the author’s website and cannot be read as stand-alones. They are lovely follow-ups to the novels referenced in the reviews.
Happy 500th blog post to me! Thanks for hanging out with me. I was initially unsure whether I wanted to read this book, despite my previous enjoyment of all of the author’s works. However, a quiet evening at home when I knew I was falling ill demanded comfort reading, and this book was the perfect […]
