Review:  The Winter King by C.L. Wilson

The Winter King – the first book of the Weathermages of Mystral series – was an unbelievable mash-up of romance and fantasy.  At 600 pages, this polar bear of a winter-themed book has a bit of everything – magic, snow monsters, a few good battle scenes and of course, a great romance.  I had been ‘eh’ on reading this because of the somewhat cheesy cover. However, the Fantasy comes through just […]

Review: Eversong (The Kindred) by Donna Grant

Kick-butt heroines, awesome action scenes, and a whole lot of witchcraft.  Donna Grant’s Eversong is the first book in the Kindred series, focusing on a group of witch-hunters in Medieval England.  Billed as a medieval paranormal romance, Eversong blends both fantasy and historical elements of 1300’s England to set-up what is sure to be an action-packed, nail-biting series.  Unfortunately, I found both the world building and overarching romance to be […]

Review:  Fantastical by Kristen Ashley

If WIldest Dreams was Frozen and Golden Dynasty was Game of Thrones, then Fantastical was Disney’s Enchanted.  Light, fluffy, and fast, Fantastical is the third book in Fantasyland series and introduces us to a whole new realm of Kirsten Ashley’s parallel universe. Fantastical begins with our heroine, Cora Goode waking-up in a Beauty and the Beast, Disney-esque world complete with elaborate furniture, talking birds, and a sister who sits on […]

A Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

I finished this book almost a week ago and can’t get this Cat and Griffin off my mind.  Breath of Fire was an enjoyable read, but I’m appreciating it more the longer I have to think through the overall story arc – aren’t books strange like that sometimes? Maybe it has to do with the jam-packed storyline… Overall this series continues to be very enjoyable.  A Breath of Fire is well […]

Golden Dynasty – Kristen Ashley

Golden Dynasty was impressive and I’m not ashamed to say that I really like it!  I’ve never fully committed to the Kristen Ashley bandwagon and I struggled with the writing style in the previous Fantasyland book; however, I read several Goodread’s reviews claiming the second book was better and I have to agree. In fact, I already one-clicked Fantastical, the third book in the series. Let’s get this out of the […]

A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

I picked-up Amanda Bouchet’s A Promise of Fire after seeing it’s Goodreads nomination for Best Debut Author.  I love Fantasy, but struggle to find something adult oriented with a strong Female protagonist.  A Promise of Fire delivered with a magically gifted heroine; however, I think her strength of character won’t be fully appreciated or evident until later in the trilogy. Cat is a Kingmaker, the ultimate diplomatic weapon able to […]
