The Werecat Chronicles

The Werecat Chronicles

My Review The Werecat Chronicles is the first on what the author intends on being an entire contemporary series following these werecats back in history to the time of Nefertiti.  From the moment I began reading, I couldn’t put this series down.  It was fascinating, and unlike any other “were” books I have read.  There […]

Concerto

Concerto

My Review Concerto combined the best of mystery, romance, intrigue, and suspense and wove into a story that I just couldn’t put down.  From the first page, the story drew you in and just wouldn’t let you go.  Chrispen is a violinist with the local symphony and is looking at a chance to play with one […]

Blood of Requiem

Blood of Requiem

My Review Blood of Requiem is the first novel in the Song of Dragons, a epic fantasy series.  The basis for the book, as with most fantasy of this style, is the struggle between good and evil.  Very clear lines were drawn between good and evil, and the heroes and villains were also very clearly delineated.  As […]

Beyond the Grave

Beyond the Grave

My Review Beyond the Grave is the last book in the series, and I am going to miss it!  That being said, this book was not my favorite of the series.  While it was still a great read, it seemed to lack a little of the punch the previous installments had.  For the epic conclusion […]

Haunting the Night

Haunting the Night

My Review Haunting the Night is available only online, a novella that fits between the previous full-length novel One Hundred Candles and the next (and last) full-length novel Beyond the Grave.  Novella or not, this has been my favorite of the series.  Once again, Purnhagan brilliantly blends the paranormal with the mundane, the latter almost the […]

The War God’s Men

The War God’s Men

My Review The War God’s Men is a dramatized account of the events surrounding the First Punic War between ancient Rome and Carthage.  As a long-time Latin student fascinated with Roman history, the concept of this book truly appealed to me.  Both historical and fictional characters and events were blended within the story with some slight deviations […]

The Blood Gate

The Blood Gate

My Review The Blood Gate is an epic fantasy tale with rich characters, tons of action and intrigue, romance, and great storylines.  The world the author created for this book was extraordinary, with a created mythology of dieties and religion that was somehow still fully believable, despite being so far out of our own reality […]

Red

Red

My Review Red is the latest novel from Kait Nolan, not part of the Mirus series, and I think it just may be my favorite so far!  The story had a little bit of everything:  romance, twists and turns, teen drama, action, unexpected villians.  Loosely based on the Red Riding Hood tale, Elodie and her […]

Confessions of a Call Center Gal

Confessions of a Call Center Gal

My Review Confessions of a Call Center Gal is the debut novel of author Lisa Lim, and it is a fantastic start to what I hope is a long line of books.  I loved just about everything about this book!  I was hooked from the very beginning and just couldn’t put it down.  The book […]
