Book Cover: Under The Cover Of Darkness by Emma Luna

Under The Cover of Darkness by Emma Luna

There are some urban legends which are pretty much set in stone. Small details may change everybody knows and keeps to the story. Others, like Slender Man, are much more fluid and have so many different versions that it’s difficult to remember where the original story started. It’s that fluidity that makes it such a great story to retell, and Emma Luna certainly takes advantage …

Book Cover: Anointed by Charity B

Anointed by Charity B

When you pick up a Charity B book you know it will be a blinder. Well-written- thought-provoking, and controversial are all words that spring to mind. Anointed was no disappointment. Be warned though, the trigger warnings accompanying this book are many. You’ll want a strong stomach for some parts. Laurel Ann and Zebediah are children, best friends, and members of a cult that has resided …

Book Cover: Half The Battle by Elle Thorpe

Half The Battle by Elle Thorpe

Ooooh! You’re gonna love this one. Actually, that could be my whole review, but you know that once I get started about a good book you’re in for an essay. Start A War transitions into Half The Battle so seamlessly that if you’re reading them back to back you wouldn’t know where one ended and the next started. It’s the perfect pick-up for the start …

Book Cover: Fiala's Demise by Auberon and Sullyn Shaw

Fiala’s Demise by Auberon & Sullyn Shaw

After that epic ending in Fiala’s Return, I was super curious to discover what would happen next with Perla and the gang. As it turns out, there’s no big moment where the world comes crashing down due to Drystan’s actions. Instead Perla, Saxan, Ambroz and Eryx seem to pick up and carry on without the ‘big event’ having much impact upon them. And this seems …

Book Cover: Heron Mill by K. L. Taylor-Lane

Heron Mill by K. L. Taylor-Lane

WTF have I just read? Hours after reading the final page of this book I’m still asking myself that question and the answer is I don’t really know, except that it was bloody brilliant. The blurb is vague and it doesn’t prepare you for the twisted beauty of Heron Mill and its mysterious inhabitants. The book takes its gothic vibe incredibly seriously. From the first …

Book Cover: Loving Aria by Leelah Renn

Loving Aria by Leelah Renn

At the start of the year Loving Aria was the book I was most desperate to get on my Kindle in 2022. Leelah Renn set the bar insanely high with her debut novel, Becoming Aria, but could book 2 in the Vox Tenor series live up to its predecessor? The answer is yes. Absolutely. In every way. Side note: It’s gonna be tough to write …

Book Cover: Dark Ink by Lainey Delaroque

Dark Ink by Lainey Delaroque

I’m going to start out by saying that Lainey Delaroque‘s Club Lavender world is pure brilliance and expanding that world into the Dark Things series was the perfect way to continue with the stories of the supporting cast. No, you don’t need to have read the Club Lavender Duet to get into Dark Ink, but your experience will be so much richer if you do. …

Book Cover: Embers by Yolanda Olson

Embers by Yolanda Olson

I thought that having binged my way through Cinere and Sparks, I was ready for Embers. I really was not. After a brief interlude visiting Mom in the last book, this one takes us back to the timeline followed in Inferno and Cinere. Now Darby’s all grown up (if you can call a woman who’s around 20 years old grown up) and has kids of …

Book Cover: Sparks by Yolanda Olson

Sparks by Yolanda Olson

If you’ve already read this far in Yolanda Olson’s Inferno series, you’ll know that Luke Greene and his family are a little unconventional. If you’ve not taken the plunge yet, Sparks is a quick (okay, that’s an understatement) read that will show you how Luke ended up the way he is. It’s a bit of a shock that Mama Greene was a nun before she …

Book Cover: Cinere by Yolanda Olson

Cinere by Yolanda Olson

You know how sometimes you read a novella so quickly that it’s a real shock when the ending arrives? Well, Cinere is one of those books. I reached the end of the final chapter and all I could think was “where’s the rest of the story?” Thankfully I’ve got the following two books in the Inferno series lined up and ready to go. Cinere takes …
