A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [ARC Review]

A Fae Romance Based on Hades & Persephone! Promise of Darkness by Bec McMaster [ARC Review]

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I didn’t know I needed a book like this until I started reading Promise of Darkness! It’s everything I want in a fantasy romance and more! Plus, did I mention that it is also a Hades and Persephone retelling? Promise of Darkness is a first-person POV romance in the heroine, Vi’s perspective. I normally love it when it’s a multiple POV romance because I always want to get a glimpse of the heroes thoughts, feelings, and motives. […]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   It’s been a while since I read fantasy romance and I was a little apprehensive going in to Phoenix Unbound and I was blown away!

Phoenix Unbound is set in a fantasy world very similar to Rome where there are gladiator fights and female sacrifices with an evil empire taking over the world. Our heroine is Gilene, an ordinary woman with extraordinary fire powers. She is also able to […]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Indiana Jones in Space! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner [Audiobook Review]

Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review.   I FINALLY read it! Unearthed by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner was… enjoyable. Well, it didn’t blow me away as I expected it to, but it wasn’t bad. It was OKAY. Let me explain. Unearthed had a lot of world building to establish. They needed to establish Gaia and of course the Earth during that time. Unearthed also introduced the main players in this adventure and why they were on Gaia in the first place. Which is why there was a lot of telling and […]

Over Hyped but Okay? Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh Audiobook Review

Over Hyped but Okay? Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh Audiobook Review

  Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. I have to be very honest with you. I was extremely excited when I heard about this book. Supposedly, it has similar themes to Mulan in that our heroine dresses up as a boy. When I finally got around to reading it….uhmm I was in a for a slight let down. It’s not what I expected at all. I thought there would be more action but instead, I got a lot of Mariko’s internal musings. Again, it was okay but the story didn’t blow me away. […]
