Ruined by Amy Tintera has ruined me for other YA fantasy

First of all, yes, this is one of those ‘pseudo-fantasy-lite’ novels where the kickass assassin/princess gets to wear pretty dresses and falls in love with the prince BUT Do not dismiss it because it’s more Twilight/Disney Princess (written for girls where girls star as the hero I might add) than Lord of the Rings, or […]

Tour Stop: Siren’s Song by Mary Weber

I absolutely adored the first book in this series, Storm Siren. I found Siren’s Fury, the second book, to be largely a waste of time. However, I had faith that the third book, Siren’s Song, wouldn’t let me down, and I was right. Siren’s Song has a plot that sends Nym and her cohorts all […]

Book Blitz: Demons by Ednah Walters

Excerpt: A shirtless Eirik was doing push-ups, the same tattoos I’d seen on his mother coiling under his glistening skin. He didn’t have as many as she did, but that pull to reach out and touch his skin was there. Despite his fewer glowing tattoos, the pull was stronger and somehow different from his mother’s. […]
