My Review I really love the premise of this series!  In the world of Seriously Shifted, witches are not good.  Not all of them are evil, but there is a defined since of superiority that allows them to live by rules of their own.  But Camellia is determined to change that.  Her mother is on the […]

My Review I ran across Seriously Wicked on the e-library site for my local Army library and fell in love with the cover.  But they didn’t own the book.  I recommended it, and the next in the series,  for purchase and, much to my delight, the library purchased both of them. It is a quirky, quirky novel, […]

My Review The Fifth Petal is the second book in The Lace Reader series.  I really enjoyed the first book, especially with its setting of Salem and the witch history.  This novel is set several years into the future and it features some new characters along with some from the first book. Callie is at the […]

My Review I got the ARC of The Fifth Petal (review coming soon) from NetGalley, not realizing that it was the second novel in the series.  So I purchased The Lace Reader.  Being fascinated with all things Salem and its witchcraft history, I was really interested to see how it played out in this novel.  And I absolutely […]

The Accident Season

My Review This was a strange, but intriguing book.  There were moments when it was like reading through an altered state, as if Cara isn’t always 100% in the present.  In places, there was prose that reminded me a bit of Sarah McCarry’s All Our Pretty Songs.  The lines of between reality and that which is imagined […]

My Review Although I love the Valdemar saga, one of my favorite series that I go back to over and over again, I have to admit that this this installment of the Collegium Chronicles is my least favorite thus far.  I still love Mags, as well his friends Lena and Bear, but this particular book […]

My Review I am a huge Mercedes Lackey fan and the entire Valdemar series is one of my all-time favorites to binge on every few years.  I love the story lines, the mystery, the intrigue, the characters.  I pick up one of these books and I am transported to a totally different world and I love […]

My Review Forgotten Things is the debut full-length novel by author Stephen Mullaney-Westwood.  It is a beautiful story woven between the reality that we all know and that inhabited by the creatures of lore that so many of us dismiss.  It is a coming-of-age story that centers around Adam and his friends Martin and Josh.  Adam has just moved […]

My Review While I have loved this series, I think that this one is my least favorite of the three.  I love Vanyel’s character as much as ever, even with all of his stubbornness.  For me it was Stefan’s character, as well as bits of his back story, that just didn’t do it for me. […]

My Review One of my favorite parts of the Valdemar epic saga are the Collegium so I love that there is now an entire series based on them!  Foundation is the first in a (so far) five book series set in the Collegium.  While Mags is the center of the series from the Herald Collegium, the […]
