The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time by Alyssa Richards

18 August 2015 Nikki R 0

Soul mates. Seeing and talking to ghosts. Psychic powers that influence people. Yup, The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time by Alyssa Richards had everything this hopeless romantic, paranormal girl wanted. Even though I ran across a few minor issues, I was quite taken by this novel. It had my […]

Charming by Krystal Wade

31 October 2014 Courtney 1

I don’t normally read, or enjoy, young adult novels but I’ll make an exception for any kind of fairy tale retelling. I’m glad I gave Charming by Krystal Wade a chance. Charming starts off fast and never slows down. The characters are engaging and the story is appealing. And no, Charming is not your […]

Maplecroft by Cherie Priest

20 October 2014 Natassia 0

The thrill and intrigue of Lovecraftian mythos is beautifully used in Cherie Priest’s Maplecroft. The debut novel of Priest’s new Borden Dispatches series is a departure from the post apocalyptic steampunk realm we have come to know her for. Taking off with the infamous Lizzie Borden, Priest creates an amazingly […]

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is brought to life in Vaughn Entwistle’s The Revenant of Thraxton Hall. With an ease of writing, Entwistle transports us to the man behind Holmes and creates an intriguing story. Tricksters and phantasms abound as Entwistle keeps us on the edge of our seats trying to […]

MBehre - Spirited

Spirited by Mary Behre

7 March 2014 Nikki R 1

If you like ghosts, with a dash of romance and topped with some murder mystery intrigue, then Spirited by Mary Behre just might be the novel for you. It is jam packed with activity from start to finish, making it a rather quick read. While, I can’t say it’s a new […]

A Study in Darkness by Emma Jane Holloways

12 January 2014 Natassia 0

Intrigue abounds in A Study in Darkness, the second installment of Emma Jane Holloway’s Baskerville Affair Trilogy. Picking up several months after A Study in Silks , the story plays out like a true sophomore entry. While not as thrilling or as creative as the first, Holloway contrasted the prior society […]

Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer

29 December 2013 Natassia 0

Jaime Lee Moyer’s gift for storytelling is evident in Delia’s Shadow. Moyer beautifully captures elegance and thrill into a timeless story. With clarity and detail, you are transported to San Francisco of yesteryear and quickly become convinced that séances and spiritualists are not merely a fad but truth. Each turn […]

A Study in Silks by Emma Jane Holloway

20 November 2013 Natassia 0

In the debut novel of the new Baskerville Affair Trilogy, Emma Jane Holloway puts her own spin on steampunk with A Study in Silks. Unlike any other Sherlock spin off I’ve read, Holloway mixes humor with intrigue and magic with science. There are neat concepts at each turn and Holloway […]

Ready for a new shape shifter series? Or semi new anyway? I just finished Claws Bared , the second novel in the Blood of Pride series by Sheryl Nantus. It’s about a PI cat shifter that can’t shape shift, who must solve a murdered human case or else the clan’s […]

Sometimes I get in a mood for a good mystery but find myself still wanting aspects of the paranormal as I need an escape from “real” life.  Thus, when I got the chance to read Blood of Dawn by Tami Dane, I jumped on it.  I’ve really enjoyed the PBAU series […]

KKinsey-Red

Red by Kate Kinsey

6 January 2013 Nicole 1

I’ve discovered over the summer that I really like some BDSM novels and was very actively seeking them out for a while. So, when I came across Kate Kinsey’s Red on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to review it. Though, sadly, Red was a disappointment for me and Red […]

AMayer-The Falling Machine

The Falling Machine by Andrew P. Mayer

28 November 2012 Natassia 0

As soon as I read the premise of The Falling Machine by Andrew Mayer I was hooked. It was practically made to catch my eye. With steampunk superheroes based in Victorian New York and a protagonist who is tired of what society thinks of her, this book may just be […]

PCrilley-Lazarus Machine

The Lazarus Machine by Paul Crilley

23 October 2012 Courtney 0

I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started reading The Lazarus Machine by Paul Crilley, but I honestly did not have high hopes. The description mentioned Professor Moriarty from the wonderful books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I was nervous The Lazarus Machine would just be a steampunk, young adult […]

PLee-Deek Sky

Deep Sky by Patrick Lee

26 September 2012 Nikki R 0

What would you do if you had 24 hours to solve a mystery that’s bigger and more complex than you can imagine, with very little to go on and only a couple of people you can trust to help you, all while the government is hunting you down like a […]
