Magic Burns
Posted 7 February 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Magic Burns is the second book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just about as much as I did the first.  Magic comes and goes unpredictably in the world of Kate Daniels, but every seven years there is a magic flare.  During those times, the magic runs wild and brings […]

My Review I don’t read a lot of urban fantasy, but I loved Magic Bites!  The action is fantastic and it features a badass heroine.  Mix that with a ton of paranormal lore and mythology, and it is a truly engrossing read. The world of Kate Daniels is a post-apocalyptic one, but different from most in […]

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 You remember how your parents always told you not to judge a book by it’s cover?  I didn’t listen and I am glad I didn’t.  I realize I am late to the game in reading this, but just reading the blurb told me that I wanted to wait until all three books were […]

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 Diabolic

My Review Diabolic is the first in a new series of the same name by author S.J. Kincaid.  The book is science fiction in every sense of the world.  It takes place in the distant future that in no way resembles are own.  The power structure is an Empire and it is based on a sun […]

My Review Just Juliet is one of those novels that just left me with mixed feelings.  It is a story that has promise and a cast of diverse and what could be interesting characters.  There were moments when I felt like the story was rich and engaging, and other moments that felt flat to me. […]

My Review Everything, Everything is the debut novel from author Nicola Yoon.  It is the story of a girl named Madeline who hasn’t left her house in over seventeen years.  She has SCID, an autoimmune disease that is very rare and leaves her allergic to just about anything and everything.  Her entire world is her […]

My Review Fireworks Frappe is the 7th novella in the Cupid’s Coffeeshop series.  This installment is the love story of Ava, the twin sister of Amy whom we met in an earlier novella.  She has come home after years away for her sister’s wedding and is dreading it.  As it always seems to happen, when you are […]
