Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Jodi Meadows’ debut novel Incarnate is the first book in the New Soul trilogy. This fantasy offers a unique world filled with dragons, sylphs and a city called Heart. The tale has danger, battles, suspense, romance, a divine being, mystery, and intrigue. Book one centers around the romance of Ana and Sam; as we are spoon-fed details about the world in which they live. While at times I found this frustrating, it was enough to keep me

The Shade and the Nine Lower Levels is a dark urban fantasy with supernatural elements. It started off slow for me and left me with unanswered questions. The story line is unique and I look forward to reading more in this series. This novel has vampires, demons, angels, hellions and a new creature called a Shade.

A Ripple in Time – Angel of the Titanic by Juliet Hughes

A Ripple in Time – Angel of the Titanic was a time traveling fantasy. It started off rocky for me, so stick with it. I felt like I was dropped in mid-story and it took me a while to get my bearings. My reward came to fruition quickly, as I embarked on an exciting quest; filled with famous characters, places, events, villains and lovable heroes.

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

I absolutely love the world Weeks has created in Black Prism. This book is pure fantasy and the saga (part of a trilogy) looks to be exquisite. The magic used in this realm is based on light and color. It is quite unique and different.

Canyons of the Night by Jayne Castle

I preordered Canyons of the Night and was delighted when it arrived. Having read all of the Arcane Society novels, I knew that once I started reading, I’d be unable to stop. I highly recommend this series, if you are looking for a mystery, romance thriller with a paranormal twist. Second Sight by Amanda Quick was the first paranormal book I’d ever read. I read the back cover and said, “Paranormal?” “What?” “Yuck!” My husband brought this book home to me and since I didn’t want to hurt his feelings; I dutifully began reading and thus my love for paranormal books began. This opened the door to all the genres for me. Don’t be afraid to try a new genre, you may be amazed at what you find.
