Review: Fireborn (Born Prophecy #1) by Katie MacAlister

This author is a new to me author, but she has written a number of other series that are paranomal romances. I was approached about reading her new release in this series, Starborn, and I wasn’t sure that it would work as a standalone so I asked to read the first book in the series first which was this one, Fireborn.

Honestly I didn’t really know what to expect, I just knew that I liked the sound of Starborn and wanted to read it, but knew that in many fantasy books it’s difficult to jump around so I decided to start here.

At just under 300 pages, this one was relatively short for a fantasy novel and I figured I could hammer it out before the year was over. Plus I mean, look at that cover? It’s beautiful and I simply couldn’t pass it up! Continue reading “Review: Fireborn (Born Prophecy #1) by Katie MacAlister”

Review: The 5th Gender (Tinkered Stars Mystery) by Gail Carriger

As many of you know, I have been a long time fan of Gail Carriger. She is a consistently accomplished writer with unique and interesting books that I always seem to find myself burning the midnight oil to read.

I am not a huge sci-fi fan. I don’t read a lot of it nor do I watch any sci fi. I mean I liked the idea of it, but it’s just not my genre at all. So when Carriger asked if I wanted to review this one…..I hesitated.

But I did agree to read it based on the fact that she has always seemed to win me over no matter what genre or theme she is writing about. But I was admittedly skeptical….I mean aliens? Space? Definitely not my thing, but again, I was willing to give it a go. Continue reading “Review: The 5th Gender (Tinkered Stars Mystery) by Gail Carriger”

Review: The Spectral City (Spectral City #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber

I discovered Leanna Renee Hieber way back in 2011 when I read one of her early books. I saw it in a local used book store and randomly picked it up. When I got home I started reading and couldn’t put it down.

I loved the romance and the paranormal and her overall storytelling and because of that first book in the Strangely Beautiful series, I fell in love with this author. She writes a spicy romance with great brooding heroes so I was thrilled to read this new book.

Her name is Eve Whitby, gifted medium and spearhead of The Ghost Precinct. When most women are traveling in a gilded society that promises only well-appointed marriage, the confident nineteen-year-old Eve navigates a social circle that carries a different kind of chill.

Working with the diligent but skeptical Lieutenant Horowitz, as well as a group of fellow psychics and wayward ghosts, Eve holds her own against detractors and threats to solve New York’s most disturbing crimes as only a medium of her ability can. Continue reading “Review: The Spectral City (Spectral City #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber”

Review: The Omega Objection (San Andreas Shifters #2) by G.L. Carriger

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I have been a fan of Gail Carriger for at least the last seven years. I fell in love with her writing and quirky humor with Soulless, the first in The Parasol Protectorate series and from there it was all history!

Her world building and character development is on point and I love that she writes diverse stories. I have read a few of her LGBTQ novels and loved how beautifully she portrays romance between people, not just romance between man and woman—-or werewolf and a soulless.

I don’t read a ton of LGBTQ romances or novels for that matter, but I love Carriger’s ability to world build and create interesting romances so when this second book in the San Andreas Shifters series came up, I was happy to review it.

A werewolf walks into a bar. Continue reading “Review: The Omega Objection (San Andreas Shifters #2) by G.L. Carriger”
