Daughter of the Pirate King

Daughter of the Pirate King
Posted 6 March 2017 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review Half the reason I requested this galley was because of the pirates.  Even better was the fact that the lead pirate in the novel is a girl.  There are not enough pirates of any gender in YA literature! Alosa is the daughter of the new pirate king and the captain of her own […]

My Review When I was offered the chance to read the ARC of this by Entangled Publishing, I jumped at it!  I’m all about any book that features hockey at any level of the game.  And it is a book that yanked me in from the very first page. There is a lot to love […]

My Review This is the novella I’ve been wanting!  The story of Dali and Jim.  It is something that was teased in one of the earlier novels, but I’ve been wanting this story.  It is the romance of two unlikely people and I loved it. I have loved Dali from the moment we met her. […]

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 The Sun is Also a Star is the second novel by Nicola Yoon and I loved it every bit as much as the first.  There was just something about this book that got to me.  And, in retrospect, this is surprising, because a big part of it centers around something I usually hate. […]

My Review I think Magic Bleeds, the fourth novel in the Kate Daniels series, is my favorite.  I loved everything about this book.  The story, the characters, the mythology, the action.  All of it combined to make a novel that was hard to put down! Kate Daniels is probably my favorite female protagonist.  She is fierce […]

My Review Magic Mourns is a companion novella in the Kate Daniels series.  This one tells the story of Andrea Nash, Kate’s best friend and a Knight of the Order. Although Kate is in the book, this story is almost exclusively about Andrea.  While it is possible to enjoy the series without reading this, I personally […]

My Review This series just gets better and better!  Magic Strikes is the third book in the Kate Daniels series and I loved it just as much as the others. In this one, Kate has been drafted to work in the Order as a sort of liaison between the Pack and the Order.  She is […]

Magic Burns

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 […]

Magic Bites

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

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 […]
