Poison promise cover

This review does not contain spoilers for Poison Promise but may contain spoilers for earlier books in the series I’m going to get it out there straight away and say that I LOVE this series. I like nothing better than a kick ass heroine who is funny and protects those she loves, and boy, does Gin tick those boxes. Gin is back and better than ever in this 11th instalment of the Elemental Assassin series and I was so relieved that we also finally meet the mysterious M.M. Monroe after…

Scorched - Erica Hayes

I haven’t read anything by Erica Hayes before, but after reading a few reviews for Scorched, and seeing that it was on NetGalley for review, I decided to give it a go. And I’m so pleased I did. After the first chapter I realised that this was going to be my kind of book. The author pulls no punches; the writing is gritty, witty and dark – just the way I like it. The heroine, Verity Fortune, aka The Seeker, is complex and slightly damaged, but completely badass. She’s a…

Libriomancer - Jim C. Hines

I admit that when I first picked up this book I was a bit sceptical. I freely admit that I put off reading this for one reason and one reason only. I really hate the cover. It’s so bad for me to be judgemental like that but it’s everything I hate in a cover. However, I have never been happier to be proved so wrong to judge a book by its cover because this was a truly engaging read. Libriomancer is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve come across…

REVIEW: Fireborn by Keri Arthur

Fireborn - Keri Arthur

Fireborn is the latest entry to the Urban Fantasy genre by Keri Arthur. As a huge fan of her Riley Jenson series, I eagerly waited for this book to land on my doorstep so I could dive straight into it. However, I was left with mixed feelings for this promising new series. The premise is good, the writing is good, the characters are great, but unfortunately there are just too many questions left unanswered leaving me confused and frustrated at the end. This is a real shame since it has all…

Deadly Curiosities by Gail Z Martin cover

A great premise lurks behind the cover of Deadly Curiosities by Gail Z. Martin, which takes on the urban fantasy genre with admirable spirit.
