Review: Where Shadows Dance (Sebastian St. Cyr #6) by C.S. Harris

Another day, another Sebastian St Cyr mystery review. I and so deeply invested in this series right now that basically nothing is getting done around my house or any other reading for that matter.

So many people ask how I read so many books. Well the answer is simple, I speed read but I also read a lot of the books I have up for review right now, weeks or even months before. For example, I have already read 3 books for review in March and April so I am always ahead of schedule and I do this because I like to know I have time to binge read books or series like this one right here.

I read the first book in this series years ago and thought it was good, but it was the second book that has rekindled my interest in the larger series and I couldn’t be more excited about that. Continue reading “Review: Where Shadows Dance (Sebastian St. Cyr #6) by C.S. Harris”

Review: What Remains of Heaven (Sebastian St. Cyr #5) by C.S. Harris

This series is flying by for me and I am living each and every book for all kinds of reasons!

The mysteries are each interesting, new, and twisty but for me the character development through each book has been incredible! When I started this series, I read only book 1 before jumping back in at like book 12. I thought the first book was good as well as the other later books, but I never fully appreciated this series until I started reading it beginning to end.

I didn’t have too much trouble starting this series late, but I did know there were relationships and events that I wasn’t fully understanding because I was so late to the party so to speak. I would recommend starting this series at the beginning if you want the full experience, but if you must start this series with later books, I recommend NOT starting with this one.

Review: Where Serpents Sleep (Sebastian St. Cyr #4) by C.S. Harris

This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I mean, I’ve read the later books and enjoyed them but now that I am going back and reading the other books in the series in order, I am seeing the nuanced relationships develop and I simply can’t stop reading!

I only meant to read one or two books in the series, but I’ve discarded that notion and am fully intending to binge read this series before the month is out!

I am currently starting book 6 so I am super excited to read all of the books and share not only my reviews but my take two reviews once I read the later books the second time! Continue reading “Review: Where Serpents Sleep (Sebastian St. Cyr #4) by C.S. Harris”

Review: Why Mermaids Sing (Sebastian St. Cyr #3) by C.S. Harris

This mystery series has been one that I have read and enjoyed but wouldn’t consider a favorite….until now. I picked up the later books in the series but hadn’t gone back to read the earlier books.

While I didn’t always feel out of place or lost in the plot, there were clearly nuanced relationships between the characters within the larger narrative that left me feeling not as invested in the series as I had hoped.

I read the first book a few years ago and thought it was good and at the time had planned to read the series in order, but I just didn’t have it in my reading calendar to do that. Well a few years went by and here I was over Christmas break and found that I had a clear schedule and nothing to read. The second book in this series was on sale so I downloaded it and devoured it in a day, needless to say I downloaded this one immediately following and was incredibly thankful for instant download because I couldn’t wait to see what Sebastian investigated next.

Special Feature: A Sanctuary of Spirits (Spectral City #2) by Leanna Renee Hieber

Leanna Renee Hieber is such a strong writer when it comes to historical fiction mixed with the paranormal. I have read her Strangely Beautiful series and thought it was wonderful!

I also read the first book in this series and thought it was equally exciting and well written. I was so sad that I couldn’t fit this next installment into my review calendar but I am thriller that I get to share a little about this book with all of you guys!

I adore Hieber’s books, it’s like she gets me, I love the Victorian/Gothic/Gaslight Fiction so much and you can tell that she loves this time period and style in her books. If you love historical fiction mixed with some paranormal and sizzling romance, this is your writer.
