Review: Wishes, Wings, and Woes (Gods and Demons #2) by Kaye Draper

As usual, I devoured the latest installment of this series as soon as possible and enjoyed every moment of it. Troya continues to grow as a character as she regains more memories of her previous lives and Derek White’s connection to it. Her relationships with her boyfriends grow deeper and more solid. And Draper’s world-buildingContinue reading “Review: Wishes, Wings, and Woes (Gods and Demons #2) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Not Quite Beast (Not Quite #2) by Kaye Draper

This is a solid continuation to Sam’s story, action-packed and filled with answers to some questions while teasing even more questions that need answers. Draper also expands upon her world-building and introduces an intriguing political element to the plot line. I look forward to seeing how Sam and their “guild” play a role in Theo’sContinue reading “Review: Not Quite Beast (Not Quite #2) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Not Quite Human (Not Quite #1) by Kaye Draper

Kaye Draper’s latest urban fantasy/romance series is going to be another hit for me, I think. This author includes a note in her book blurbs about being tired of tropes, and she puts her money where her mouth is — once again, the characters in this story were unique, fascinating, and flawed. As an addedContinue reading “Review: Not Quite Human (Not Quite #1) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Fates, Fins, and Fangs (Gods & Demons #1) by Kaye Draper

I tore through the Gesa’s Menagerie series while home sick a few months ago, so it seems appropriate that I would start this next series while working full-time from home during a pandemic. This novella was a wonderful afternoon of escape, full of intriguing characters and excitement. The author states that this can be readContinue reading “Review: Fates, Fins, and Fangs (Gods & Demons #1) by Kaye Draper”

Review: The Dragon Mistress: Book 4 (Eburosi Chronicles #11) by R.A. Steffan

As is typical for me with the books in this series, I devoured this installment in a single evening. This story does an excellent job of tying up multiple story lines and plot points, beyond the obvious of the overall “get Rayth’s throne back from his evil brother.” Frella finally bonds with her dragon andContinue reading “Review: The Dragon Mistress: Book 4 (Eburosi Chronicles #11) by R.A.

Review: Sapphire (Jewels Cafe #2) by Eva Delaney

I think this series is definitely less on the serious side and more on the absurdly ridiculous spectrum of the fantasy genre. Once again, this “reverse harem” actually means over-the-top and unbelievable wish fulfillment rather than real relationships. I honestly would have enjoyed this more without the sex, if it was just about Sapphire theContinue reading “Review: Sapphire (Jewels Cafe #2) by Eva Delaney”

Review: Amber (Jewels Cafe #1) by Mia Harlan

I checked out this series because I saw it recommended in another author’s mailing list. I’ve previously enjoyed other reverse harem series, so why not? It turns out I enjoy the conflict and drama that can accompany polyamorous relationships rather than the wish-fulfillment/escapism of one girl with a handful of dudes swooning over her. AmberContinue reading “Review: Amber (Jewels Cafe #1) by Mia Harlan”

Review: Wolfromance (Reluctant Necromancer #3) by Kaye Draper

I understand that authors are always warned not to “info-dump” to their readers, that they should include the information the reader needs to know naturally through the story. But there’s a downside to that, when so many things are going on that everyone EXCEPT the main character knows about. At some point, someone needs toContinue reading “Review: Wolfromance (Reluctant Necromancer #3) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Vampromance (Reluctant Necromancer #2) by Kaye Draper

I don’t get to binge-read this series like I did Draper’s previous reverse harem epic, but I’m enjoying it all the same. Esper is an intriguing character, and I appreciate the set-up of her being lost from her family line as a way for the audience to learn about the greater magical world through herContinue reading “Review: Vampromance (Reluctant Necromancer #2) by Kaye Draper”

Review: Ghostromance (Reluctant Necromancer #1) by Kaye Draper

I probably shouldn’t have read this so close on the heels of Draper’s previous reverse harem series, Gesa’s Menagerie. I prefer Gesa as a character to Esper, but that doesn’t mean anything is necessarily wrong with Esper. I got a bit tired of her “Woe is me, I’m so ugly” ruminations, but otherwise she’s aContinue reading “Review: Ghostromance (Reluctant Necromancer #1) by Kaye Draper”
