Wonderfully different. Highly recommended.

One of the most remarkable things about this book was the dialogue. The story was set in a time where electricity wasn’t real, there was no such thing as ‘industrial’ and magic was completely real. One of the things that can make or break a story...

Amazing

If what I’ve heard is true, than this book started out as a self published novel; I thank you so much for doing that! Some authors would have let it sit, or fade into the background. But this thing was amazing—and I’m so happy you decided to put it...

Highly Recommended

I’m not a big contemporary fan… but this was excellent. It was so excellent, that there was one point that I was forcing myself not to cry. I just felt so connected to the characters that I was tearing up. This story is from the point...

A good read

I picked this book up on a whim; I had seen it on some website and recognized the cover when I was in the store. Because it was an impulse buy it took me a little while until I took it off my shelf to actually read—when I did...

Not your average werewolf story

5/5 Stars There are a lot of werewolf stories out there... but this is something else. Sisters Red is a fairytale retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. The chapters alternate between the two main character’s points of view. These two characters—Scarlett and Rosie March hunt creatures called Fenris...

Started a tad slow

For me the story started out a little slow. There was a lot of promise, and a lot of little hints towards interesting things. But there were more hints than anything else at first. The story is written through the eyes of Benny Imura—a fifteen year old boy who...

Everything I wanted!

I was very happy that this was just as good as the first book! Sometimes sequels can let you down, but this isn’t one of them. It was just as awesome as the first. This book is mainly focused around Evie and her awesome...

Couldn't put it down!

You know those books that you can’t put down? This was absolutely one of them! I staid up until three in the morning because I couldn’t bring myself to put this thing down. So the main character Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency (or...

Alien Infatuation

Katy is feisty and strong willed. Daemon is protective, and a jerk. Dee is just the right amount of bubbly. These three characters are the main players in the story, and they are all wonderfully dynamic. None of them are one sided, and since Katy moves in next door...

Everything I hoped for!

This book was just as good as the standards set by Clockwork Angel. It was everything I wanted, and a little more. This book focuses a good amount on betrayal, and immerses you more in the romance between characters. You have to choose a side in...

A must read!

The reason I put off reading this book was because it’s Steam punk; and more specifically it’s set in 1969. This is the first Steam punk book I’ve ever read before, which made me nervous. Also I’ve never been one for books set in the past, because the language...

Beautifully Executed

This is the first book I’ve read that could classify as ‘Sci-Fi’, so I was a little skeptical when I started reading. To be honest I was fully prepared not to like it; but in reality I couldn’t put it down. The more I read, the more I wanted...

A wonderful take on Reincarnation!

I read this book a little while ago, when it first came out. But I still remember the story perfectly—and I cannot wait for the sequel. I had thought the book was a standalone novel, even though by the time I was done I was ready for more....
