Book Review : The Silverblood Promise

Book Review : The Silverblood Promise

The Silverblood Promise is a fast-paced, rip-roaring fantasy debut that had me hooked from the very first page. The novel is also filled to the brim with loveable characters, interesting character dynamics, and excellent banter. And if that weren’t enough to get readers interested, The Silverblood Promise also involves hair-brained schemes, heists, murder mysteries, and secrets of an extinct ancient race (or two).   The novel follows Lukan Gardova, a […]

Book Review : The Warm Hands of Ghosts

Though I […]

Book Review : When a Dragon Falls

Book Review : When a Dragon Falls

Before this novel, When a Dragon Falls, I’d read all but one of the Embraced/Embraced by Magic series. Though I was a huge fan of Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon, the third book of the series, I found that I just didn’t care for the following novels, How to Love your Elf, and The Siren and the Deep Blue Sea quite so much. However, after seeing that When […]
