After the jaw-dropping cliffhanger in Star Cursed, I was anxious to dive into Sisters’ Fate the final Cahill Witch Chronicles novel by Jessica Spotswood. What a nail-biting journey this has been as we followed three sisters, all witches, prophesied about living in one of the most oppressive periods. Sisters’ Fate was gripping, dark, and at times pulled on the reader’s heartstrings but it was equally powerful and uplifting.
I enjoyed Ghost Seer the first book in this new series by Robin D. Owens and was excited to dive into Ghost Layer. While Clare Cermak, the protagonist, made me a tad nervous, and it reeked of insta-love I was excited about the mystery, talking spirit dog and possibilities this series held. Unfortunately the character’s actions pulled me from the overall mystery and left me disillusioned.
Each time I open up a new Transplanted Tale from Kate SeRine I know I am in for a treat and Ever After was delightful and suspenseful. From the King of Fairies to Merlin it was enchanting. We met Gideon Montrose in Along Came a Spider, and I like many wished for his story. SeRine gave him an excellent tale and introduced Arabella Locksley “Robin Hood” What? You thought Robin Hood was a man?
Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson caught my eye with its creepy cover and synopsis. Dawson takes us to Savannah Georgia after Hurricane Josephine and through the eyes of Carly; we reawaken to discover something sinister arrived with that storm. Servants of the Storm is an atmospheric Gothic tale with a slow-building mystery that hooks its claws into you.
Hexed is the thirteenth book in the Krewe of Hunters paranormal mystery/romance series by Heather Graham. One of the things I love about this series is that each can work as a standalone. In Hexed, Graham took us to the Massachusetts’ area on the outskirts of Salem. An unsolved murder occurred thirteen years ago, and it looks like the killer is back. Romance, the witch trials and paranormal woo-woo made this tale a real page-turner.
I was excited to step back into the Tidewater series by Mary Behre and in Guarded, we meet Jules Scott’s sister, veterinarian Shelley Morgan and learn more about Seth’s yummy partner Dev Jones. Guarded was action packed, with the perfect balance of woo-woo, suspense and romance.
Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre is the first in the Immortal Game trilogy. It is a paranormal tale with a side of romance; a little urban legend and a twisted creep factor that grabs your attention from the beginning.
