The Final Conclusion

I have absolutely loved this series and I find myself at a bittersweet ending. I'm happy that the series made it to the end without messing up, but upset that it's over. Necromancy is still an unpopular subject to write about compared to all of the...

Kind of horrible

I am a faithful reader. If I start a series, I feel compelled to finish it, if I enjoyed the first book. That being said, I recently read the novel Almost Everything which is the third in the series Vampire Princess Novels. But, before I move onto...

Slow Start, But A Great Read

I made a promise to Jessi Kirby after I finished Moonglass that I would read anything she published. And so that's how my journey with In Honor started. After about twenty pages, I told myself I wouldn't be able to finish the book, but didn't quit...

Enchanted Is Enchanting

Enchanted is, like its namesake, enchanted. In the beginning, I hadn't really known what to expect from Enchanted. I was intrigued by a pretty cover, and a new name with endless possibilities. Alethea Kontis doesn't disappoint. Enchanted is a magical experience that incorporates many fairy tales. I...

Dragonswood Is Different

Dragonswood was a surprisingly good book. I had mixed thoughts about whether it would be good. The description is semi-horrible. Don't read the descrption, just open the book and read. I won't say I was captivated by page one, but definitely page two. Page one is a...

A Beautiful Evil, is the sequel to Darkness Becomes Her. The book is even better than the first. But, you can just feel that Kelly Keaton used the sequel to prepare us for the big bang of the third in the series. Throughout the whole book, I kept rooting for...

Glamorous cover sucked me in

I, like many others, took the time to read some of the reviews posted by other readers. Even though the book gets a lot of bad press, I still couldn't resist the cover. That being said... The book is incredibly long and full of (unnecessary) lengthy...
