Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Half-Blood is the first novel in the Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. In March, I brought you a review of Daimon (0.5) and you can read my thoughts on the prequel here. I picked up these books after reading some fantastic reviews by fellow bloggers. The Covenant series is an urban fantasy steeped in mythology. It has paranormal elements, a snarky protagonist, and complex world-building that captured my attention.
While it isn’t necessary to read …

Croak by Gina Damico

Croak is the first novel in a new series by debut author Gina Damico. I was immediately drawn to the cover of Croak. I love tales involving reapers and knew I had to read this. Damico offers us a fresh urban fantasy filled with mystery, suspense and a secret society of reapers. This novel is hilarious, perfectly paced, and highly entertaining.

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean

Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake is the first novel in the Love by Numbers series by author Sarah MacLean. I read a review by Chrissie @ Once Upon aSeries and simply knew I had to read this novel. I hadn’t visited the ladies and gentlemen of the ton in quite some time and this novel delivered everything I hoped for and more. MacLean gave me feisty characters, hilarious antics and characters I adored.

Against the Sun by Kat Martin

Against the Sun is the sixth novel in the Raines of Wind Canyon series by Kat Martin. These are romantic suspense novels which deal with ex-military men and the woman who capture their hearts. Each is designed to be read as a standalone. As always this reader prefers to read them in order. I like to get a sense of all the players and enjoy knowing the back-history. Against the Sun held my attention from page one and I was swept away.

At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

At Grave’s End is the third book in the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost and perhaps one of my personal favorites so far. While Frost delivers plenty of action she also shares the emotional side of Cat and Bones relationship. I consumed this in a single afternoon and again questioned why I have let these books sit in my TBR pile for so long. I will be remedying that by reading one a month until I am caught up. It is written and so it shall be done. (hehehe)

The Vanishing Game is the debut novel of Kate Kae Myers. It is a young-adult paranormal fiction that was thoroughly entertaining. Complete with an evil house, creepy characters and a slew of clues that kept me guessing. The synopsis promises an ending that will shock you and shock me it did. This was an intense, action packed, spooky thriller that kept me enthralled.
