Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane

Say hello to my longest read of the year. Not necessarily the longest book in terms of pages, but rather in terms of how long it took me to actually read this one!

I started this one at the beginning of July people and here it is September and I am just now finishing it! In fact I finished it last week and to be honest that shocked me.

I fully expected to finish this book in only a few sittings and sadly I just didn’t But there are a couple of reasons for that—I had a lot of other books going and this one wasn’t a partner review so it was more of a ‘when I get to it’ type book. That and I started a new job and just generally got waylaid when it came to reading this one. Continue reading “Review: A Heart of Blood and Ashes (A Gathering of Dragons #1) by Milla Vane”

Review: The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger

Last month I had the pleasure of reading one Gail Carriger’s latest books and this month I was able to squeeze this one in.

As you might recall, I love her books because her world building is so rich and detailed with so many fun characters that stand out and that I want to read about!

This series has been a fun read and focuses on shifters and werewolves which normally aren’t really my fav but I love Carriger and she never disappoints! Continue reading “Review: The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger”

Review: Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger

If there is one author that I have always had good luck reading—-it’s Gail Carriger. I discovered her Parasol Protectorate series years ago and fell head over heels in love with it.

Since then I have read may of her other spin off novels and series most set in the same world as the Parasol Protectorate series. I adore her spunky and sassy characters that make up her world but I also love that many of her characters are LGBTQ, while others are not.

She isn’t afraid to write bold characters and doesn’t conform to traditional gender roles in her novels which I love. I also know that whenever I pick up one of her books, I am always going to be in for a treat! Continue reading “Review: Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger”

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”
