Dare I say it?! Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop was better than Murder of Crows. Hide the children! Or, should I say it was as good but in so many different ways? I think I’ll say both. If I had to narrow down one of the main factors that made Vision in Silver so great I would have to point to three characters; Meg, Simon, and Grandfather Erebus. All three, whether in conjecture with each other or individually kept me so entranced with the story that I think I was becoming sick because I couldn’t function without reading Vision in Silver. What kind of magic is that?! Remember back when I said in my review of Murder of Crows that I underestimated the stupidity of the humans? (If not, go here so that we’re on the same page). Well, I did it again…sigh Being held captive within Lakeside because of their stupidity didn’t […]

Repeating the praise I gave Written in Red is not something I want to do, since Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop was an altogether different, yet similar, monster. Everything that made Written in Red so phenomenal carried over to Murder of Crows and it took this series to another level. Reading about a possible romance between Simon and Meg from the sneak peek in the back of Written in Red made me so excited and anxious! Once I finally closed the pages to that book and then picked up Murder of Crows from the library I got to thinking; could a romance between the main characters mess this series up by bringing unnecessary drama to its pages or would Anne Bishop be able to swing it and still weave a fantastic story? Since I don’t have a lot of luck with sequels I dived into Murder of Crows anyway, without a life jacket, and hoped for […]

The world of the Others was so complex, but un-overwhelming, which was something a shocking surprise seeing as Written in Red by Anne Bishop is the first book in a high fantasy series. Wow, wow, freaking wow! The author did such a superb job of explaining things within the fabric of the story. I was able to follow along without having to go back to certain parts of the story to refresh my memory on certain things. I’ll try to provide the gist of the Others without causing confusion and chaos; the humans are against the Others (Wolfgard, Sangunati, Elementals, Crowgard, Hawkgard, Owlgard, Beargard, Coyotegard, Panthergard, and etc.) and vice versa. It wasn’t until both Montgomery, a police officer transferred to Lakeside because he killed a human to save an Other, and Meg, a blood prophet who escaped her ‘owners,’ shows up at the Courtyard, that the once set in stone barriers […]

Say No To The Duke by Eloisa James

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a historical romance story, but Say No To The Duke by Eloisa James was an entertaining and refreshing re-introduction to the genre! From the first moment we were given a glimpse into the makeup of Bess’ character, I knew I would end up loving her journey. Her individual conflict and resolution wasn’t anything spectacular. But if you were to mix in her personality, her love interest, along a host of supporting characters you would then have the perfect blend for an engaging and relatable story on your hands. It was so refreshing to read about characters that were different from the norm within this genre. Say No To The Duke carried such a light tone while also tackling some serious (and under-represented) topics that I still felt satisfied in the story that was given. Maybe the repeat of the same type of […]

Ravage by Tillie Cole was that story I’ve been looking for, wanting to dive into and get lost in. Goodness… Shoot, it’s been a while since I’ve immersed myself into a Tillie Cole story, but my gosh how could I forget how much her stories can impact me?! I knew that with each story in the Scarred Souls series that the characters were tied to each other in some way, but no way could I have ever imagined the way Ravage turned out. Talk about heartache in 500 pages or less! I have yet to read an author that can match Cole’s versatility and unique style of writing dark romances. With each story she writes, whether you end up loving the book in its entirety or not, I bet you were in some way emotionally touched and a mark was left on your soul from the story she told. Guaranteed, hands […]
