Book Review: Notorious (Shifter Scoundrels #1) by Charlie Cochet & Macy Blake

I’m always willing to give weird genre mash-ups a shot, so this book ending up on my TBR isn’t a surprise. It features a shockingly unexpected opening that sets up the main conflict while also doing a decent bit of worldbuilding, which hooked me pretty much instantly. I also thoroughly enjoyed main characters Caspian andContinue reading “Book Review: Notorious (Shifter Scoundrels #1) by Charlie Cochet & Macy Blake”

Book Review: Shah Mat (Shattered Pawns #4) by Jennifer Cody

Read my reviews of the previous books set in this series/world: Diviner’s Game series | Shattered Pawns series Some books are easy to review, no matter the genre. These things happened, the characters were like this, and this is how I felt about it. Some books, on the other hand, are the culmination of halfContinue reading “Book Review: Shah Mat (Shattered Pawns #4) by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: Devil’s Mark (Reckless Damned #1) by Lark Taylor

I enjoyed this solid debut by a new author (I’m not sure whether they have anything under other names) with a different-enough take on demons and angels to keep things fresh while staying rooted in the familiar. Using this element of the supernatural can get bogged down by religion, but Taylor’s world doesn’t automatically assignContinue reading “Book Review: Devil’s Mark (Reckless Damned #1) by Lark Taylor”

Book Review: Shattered Pawns Series by Jennifer Cody

This post includes reviews of the following books in the Shattered Pawns series: Pass (Shattered Pawns #1) I fell in such love with this fascinating urban fantasy world that I devoured this trilogy soon after finishing the first one, Diviner’s Game. A previous antihero, Tio, is now solidly in the hero camp, and I lovedContinue reading “Book Review: Shattered Pawns Series by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: Best Served Cold by E.M. Denning

One of my favorite books by this author is called Murder Husbands, so I knew I had to check out her dark romance featuring a literal demon. I was not disappointed, and this book is a perfect way to enjoy the spookiest month of the year. Note, however, that I primarily call this a darkContinue reading “Book Review: Best Served Cold by E.M. Denning”

Book Review: Diviner’s Game Series by Jennifer Cody

This post includes reviews of the books in the Diviner’s Game series: Bishop to Knight One (Diviner’s Game #1) When I tried to read an earlier edition of this book, I didn’t get very far.

Book Review: A Date to Impress Him (Magi Accounts #2.5) by Michele Notaro

Book Review: Vortex Conundrum (Ghostly Guardians #2) by Louisa Masters

Read my review of the first book in the Ghostly Guardians series, Spirited Situation Haunted houses tend to fall under the purview of New England when such stories are set in the United States, so I’m having fun with this slightly random but exceedingly haunted Midwest attraction. This time, one of our heroes is theContinue reading “Book Review: Vortex Conundrum (Ghostly Guardians #2) by Louisa Masters”

Book Review: The Shackles That Hold Us (Magi Accounts #2) by Michele Notaro

Read my reviews of the previous novel and novellas in the Magi Accounts series. I continue to be thoroughly impressed with the worldbuilding that has gone into this familiar yet terrifying vision of our future world with the addition of magi and shifters. Most fiction shows those races coming out on top, but sadly, IContinue reading “Book Review: The Shackles That Hold Us (Magi Accounts #2) by Michele Notaro”

Book Review: Inferno (Hammer and Fist: Geminatus #1) by Jennifer Cody

The author advertised that this book could be read before or after Sledge and Claw (Hammer and Fist: Lextalion #1), but I read it second per the publishing dates. This order worked well for two reasons. First, characters from the other book provide delightful cameos in this novel (and yes, Lex and co. are asContinue reading “Book Review: Inferno (Hammer and Fist: Geminatus #1) by Jennifer Cody”
