New Must Have Resource for Writers

I love resources that help me with my own writing process. I'm a huge fan of stories that are emotionally packed. I feel ripped off if I read a story that deals with heartache and grieve and skips over the emotion the characters must be feeling. Denise...

New Anti-hero to Love

Once I read the blurb to this YA paranormal, I knew I HAD to read this book! Entangled is fast becoming one of my favorite publishers. Dante is filled with ‘tude and thinks he’s all that. He just happens to be soul collector for Lucifer....

Fun Twist where Greek Legends meet Urban Fantasy

I love fun twists on any ancient legend. In this case this would be Greek mythology. Perez takes some Greek mythological creatures and places them in modern day Minneapolis. What you get is one fast-paced ride with romance, mystery, and betrayal. Nyx Fortuna is a son of...
