My Review I closed the book after the final page and wondered to myself… why did I wait so long to read this book?  The story, the characters, the writing… all of them were so enchanting and engrossing.  Everything about this book was magical! Set in the city of Prague, Karou lives alone in a […]

My Review Atlantia is a standalone novel by the author of the Matched series, which I loved.  This book, however, left me with mixed feelings.  The premise was amazing, but I just felt disconnected and I can’t quite figure out why. The novel takes place in a dystopian world split between the Above and the Below, the […]

My Review The Bone Witch is a beautiful book, telling the story of Tea as she discovers that she is an asha, one with very rare abilities.  The writing is lyrical and descriptive, allowing you to see the world through Tea’s eyes.  It is written in two alternating points of view and the voices are very […]

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 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 […]

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

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 am an unabashed fan of Emma Mills and I can’t tell you how sad I am to see this series end!  But I also can wait to see what she comes out with next.  The characters in these books have been through so much and the reader feels like they have been […]
