Series Review: The Others by Anne Bishop
Advanced Review: The Hanged Man by K.D. Edwards
Mini Review: This series is so good, and this sequel to the first book is even better than I could have hoped for. The characters are just so great.
Advanced Review: Splintegrate by Deborah Teramis Christian
Mini Review: Incredibly dark world and story, and it felt like the darkness was trying to consume me. I enjoyed it.
Mini Review: An amazing series with a broken but healing main character, an incredible cast, and a superb world. Everyone should read this.
Mini Review: Politics, aliens, danger, and a whole lot of travel. I love this series so much. Bren is the worlds biggest fanboi, and his anxiety-ridden ass does the impossible.
Mini Review: An interesting story of a young woman who doesn’t fit in, fighting against the system in place in historical, magical Rus.
Standalone: Sunshine by Robin McKinley
Mini Review: I cried at the end. Because that was the end of the story. Vampires, the evil kind, and a baker who just wants to live. Amazing.
