I'd Pass on This Book

This book was totally predictable. Nothing is unique about it at all. The author(s) seem to also take take a bit from Game of Thrones. There is a wall that the humans live in and it's unsafe to go out because of the vampires who would drain them. They have...

Not Bad

I first read this series years ago before the third one had even come out and I loved them! They were so fresh and exciting and just wow. I decided to reread them because I got a request wanting me to do a review for the series. Reading them now,...

A Must Read!

This book wasted no time before jumping right into the action! I do have a love/hate relationship with one part in the book. When everything goes to hell, Autumn kind of stalls out. Like any of us would do in this kind of situation so it was very realistic but...

An Amazing Start

This was a decent book. It started quickly, which I like. I hate when something takes 100+ pages to even start the real plot. It took a while for me to get through, having a lot of well, boring parts. The take on zombies this book has is kind of...

Cute!

This novella was meant to introduce the reader to the series. Gargoyle Wardens and demons being the main characters. This book shows us Dez and Jasmine. Two Wardens. The plot isn't amazing nor will it blow your mind. Dez left when Jas's father announced they were to mate. With not...

A Must Read!

I'll start off with the two main characters, Avery and Cam. But ladies first of course. Avery, is such a sweet girl. Running from her absolutely terrible past. I found myself throughout the book wanting to reach into the book and just comfort her. I also had to stop myself...
