The Ghost Chronicles

The Ghost Chronicles

The Ghost Chronicles was a poignant story of life, love, and death. It has so many layers; there’s sure to be something for everyone, from the touching love story, the deep emotional parts when Michael, the main character, has to leave his life behind, to the suspenseful events that follow Michael and his “mark.”   The characters were well written. Michael was a strong protagonist and very likable. It was easy to root for him. His ghostly love interest, Sarah, was well written as well, as was their story. I loved the myriad of secondary characters in the ghost world! […]

Deception Island

Deception Island

What can I say about Brynn Kelly’s novel, Deception Island? Well, maybe: Holy Cow! No, that doesn’t cover it. It seriously Blew. Me. Away. I didn’t have any real expectations going into the novel, mainly because I’ve never read the author’s work before. I definitely didn’t expect to love the book as much as I did. I had trouble putting it down and cracked open an energy drink at one in the morning so I could stay awake and finish it.   The plot was unique and had several twists and turns throughout. Yes, I picked up on some clues […]

Crown of Midnight

Crown of Midnight

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas is the sequel to her breakout debut, Throne of Glass, her twisted take on the Cinderella fairy tale… glass slipper… glass castle. Unique and interesting, this series has quickly become one of my favorites.   Crown of Midnight picks up a few months after our heroine has won the King’s Champion position. The novel bursts into technicolor beginning with chapter one—when Celaena is performing her duties as King’s Champion and decapitating Lord Nirall—and continues with a breakneck pace of intrigue and creepy mystery until the very last page, when a secret was revealed so […]

Wicked Intentions

Wicked Intentions

Wicked Intentions is the first book in Elizabeth Hoyt’s Maiden Lane series. And it’s the first book of Hoyt’s that I’ve had the pleasure to read. But it won’t be the last. I’ve already picked up a copy of the second book in the series.   As usual for my reviews, I’m not going to give you a blow-by-blow of the plot. Read the book. There’s no way I can do a story as complex as Wicked Intentions justice in just a few paragraphs. So, I say again, read the book. But, I will say, I really enjoyed the book. […]

Deep POV

Deep POV

I love writing-craft books. An entire shelf of my bookcase is dedicated to them. There’s only one problem… many writing books repeat information. An author might explain it in a different way, or use different illustrations and examples, but the truth of the matter is: out of every ten writing books I read, only one might have new, relevant information.   So, I have this idea for a book. It has been percolating for a while. I have some notes, a crude outline, and even a chapter or two of the manuscript written. But, I just can’t figure out how […]
