Review – It’s A Bear’s Life (That’s No Picnic) by Astrid V.J.

I chose this book because I loved the cover and I love Astrid’s work. I don’t read a lot of fantasy as a rule, but in small doses, I’m all for it. This book is no exception. NB: The story ends at Page 67 and you get a bonus chapter of another fantasy author’s workContinue reading “Review – It’s A Bear’s Life (That’s No Picnic) by Astrid V.J.”

Review – World Warden (Wurl #2) by Albert Nothlit

This was a fabulous second book in the Wurl series. I loved Book 1, Life Seed, which I reviewed last year. (Read the review here.) There is always a danger with a second book that once the world has been established, there’s not a lot left to the story. Not so in this case. IfContinue reading “Review – World Warden (Wurl #2) by Albert Nothlit”

Review – The Light of Darkness: Books 1-3 by Catrin Russell

I can’t rate this series highly enough. I loved it from the very first book, when we meet Anaya and Samael, and I just knew these two were going to be the driving force behind all the books. They are terrific characters, and their story arc is so pure and sexy, even though he isContinue reading “Review – The Light of Darkness: Books 1-3 by Catrin Russell”

Review – Cursed by J.P. Jackson

I’ve been looking forward to this, I loved Summoned (see my review here) and this is the next instalment. To be fair, it can be read as a standalone, as the author does a stellar job of explaining what happened in the first book, without info-dumping or forced insertions of prose. So if you haven’tContinue reading “Review – Cursed by J.P. Jackson”

Review – Hood’s Ride is Red by J.P. Jackson

A fun, relatively quick read and a good way to introduce yourself to the work of this brilliant horror/comedy author. It’s a retelling of the familiar fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood, but one you would barely recognise at first. Harkin Ross, known as Hood because of his penchant for wearing “hoodies,” drives a red truckContinue reading “Review – Hood’s Ride is Red by J.P. Jackson”

Review – A Tended Garden by J.P. Jackson

A Tended Garden is a fun short story (approx 58 pages) about witch Alyssa, and the coven she attends, which is run by the tyrannical Rachel. It is part comedy, part fantasy, part horror. Things go wrong for Alyssa on a regular basis, and she is always falling foul of the ghastly Rachel, who remindedContinue reading “Review – A Tended Garden by J.P. Jackson”

Review – The Forest (A tale of old magic) by Julia Blake

A romance to get lost in, as this magical, lusty story weaves from century to century, due to the curse of a spurned and vengeful lover. Wykenwode is village out of time, where through the centuries, generations of friends have had their destinies forced upon them by an ancient curse. The story is told viaContinue reading “Review – The Forest (A tale of old magic) by Julia Blake”

Review – Awakening (The Evolved Ones #1) by Natasha Oliver

This is a fabulously gritty start to what’s promising to be a barnstorming fantasy series. Rox is a modern heroine who wakes up, having no knowledge of who she really is. When we first meet her she is trying to get into Halo, which she believes is a sanctuary for the Evolved Ones, after theyContinue reading “Review – Awakening (The Evolved Ones #1) by Natasha Oliver”

Review – The Princess & the Penis by RJ Silver

First off, I decided to review this because a) a couple of respected reviewer friends had recently reviewed and loved it and b) it was on Kindle Unlimited. I didn’t randomly decide to pick a book with “Penis” in the title and hope for the best. Just wanted to clear that up. Also c) theContinue reading “Review – The Princess & the Penis by RJ Silver”

Review – A Vampire for Christmas by Tirza Schaefer

Well, I can imagine the vampire purists might be up in arms about this fresh take on the hot vampire/swooning chick trope. Sienna is one bold woman. After exploring the dungeon in the castle she has bought (with a fortune from a dead relative) she discovers a shrivelled carcass behind a previously locked door. AfterContinue reading “Review – A Vampire for Christmas by Tirza Schaefer”
