The Initiate

The Initiate
Posted 12 January 2012 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Initiate is a novella that bridges the original Cloud Prophet trilogy and the new Swarm trilogy, a prequel to both.  While the novella can stand alone, it has the threads that will eventually weave together with the trilogies of the Cloud Prophet and Swarm trilogies.  It tells the story of Eloh who we meet in […]

 My Review The last of the trilogy, Oathbound is easily my favorite of the series.  The plot, the storytelling, the characters, everything was superb in this novella.  As much as I enjoyed the others, this one pulled me even farther into the world the author created.  As in classic fae stories, nothing and no one is […]

Limerick

Limerick

My Review Limerick is the second book in the trilogy and my favorite.  This is novella-length, at roughly 55 pages, but, in my opinion, the length does not detract from the story.  The story is full and the characters are fully formed. There is far more action than romance in this book, but that fit […]

Lore

My Review Lore is a super short novella, about 16 pages, a prequel to Shimmerspell.  The author suggests reading it after Shimmerspell, as it is really not a stand alone work.  This story centers around Lauren and her history within the Arthurian mythology.  Short or not, it is an absorbing story that explains a lot of […]

Shimmerspell

My Review I came across this series after exploring Amazon, looking for something new.  I am a sucker for Fae stories so I grabbed the series.  Shimmerspell is the first novella in the series, fairly short at about 70 pages.  Despite its short length, I felt the story was full and complete without losing anything, although […]

My Review I absolutely love this series!  The blend of Celtic mythology with a contemporary time and place has created a world that borders on reality.  The author takes the fantasy beasts and creatures of Mag Mell and brings them out of their realm and into Chicago in such a way that it feels like […]

Seed

Seed

My Review Seed is an amazing read, full of thrills and suspense and gore, all the things necessary for an fantastic horror novel.  The creepy factor for this book was through the roof, set in the perfectly gothic southern Louisiana .  This isn’t Hollywood horror, but dark and evil, twisting and insidious and eerily subtle.  Jack’s […]
