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: 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”

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: 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”
