Book Review: Devil May Care (Reckless Damned #2) by Lark Taylor

Read my review of the first book in the Reckless Damned series, Devil’s Mark. The slight downside to knowing how some of the worldbuilding works in an established series is that it can be harder to draw certain elements out for the audience. It’s fairly obvious from the epilogue of the previous book in thisContinue reading “Book Review: Devil May Care (Reckless Damned #2) by Lark Taylor”

Book Review: The Trouble With Trying to Love a Hellion (Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees #3) by Jennifer Cody

Read my reviews of previous books in the Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees series: The Trouble With Trying to Date a Murderer (#1) | The Trouble With Trying to Save an Assassin (#2) The previous narrator of this series is so vibrant that Cody takes a risk with this departure, especially since Edovard is vastly different fromContinue reading “Book Review: The Trouble With Trying to Love a Hellion (Murder Sprees & Mute Decrees #3) by Jennifer Cody”

Book Review: A Purpose That Restores Us (Magi Accounts #3) by Michele Notaro

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: Flames of a Falling God (Misbegotten #1) by Searby Gray

Because of *gestures at the world* I haven’t read any sorts of dystopian or post-apocalyptic books in a few years. But this book has been on my radar for a while, and since the author is relaunching the series, I wanted to check it out (quick note on timing: I read this book and wroteContinue reading “Book Review: Flames of a Falling God (Misbegotten #1) by Searby Gray”

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”
