It's an endearing love story, simple in its plot but with a sweetness that keeps you turning the pages. Nichol is a great well-layered witty character, I would work on building the personalities of some of the supporting cast a little more, but they are all still interesting in their own way. The relationship between Nichol and Johnnie is compelling enough make you want to see how it will all play out, although at moments it feels slightly gooey. Well done.

The First of Her Kind

It's a whirlwind of a story, very intriguing and creative. Acacia lives in a completely different world than ours, surrounded by angels that care for her. They aren't easy on her though, there is a definite commanding ruggedness to how they interact with her. The story reads a bit like a greek myth, the hero having to pass through hell, where she will end up, who knows? The descriptions are well executed and there are some really great lines "You always pay the price for something you want to know ..." The action is a bit chaotic at moments, but still keeps you turning the pages wanting to know more, and there are a few wording/phrasing choices which are grammatically a little awkward, but still very well done.

The Smith's Son

An intriguing beginning I was drawn into your world quickly, it is well developed and well described. The action moves at a decent enough pace to make you want to keep reading, and there are questions, what war? Who is Bradworth? What is his backstory that has led him to run for so long? Who is his father? Bradworth is an interesting character, full of swagger and bravado, clearly confident, wonderfully witty, will he be a hero? He's not particularly likable. He doesn't hold much regard for the people who take the time to heal and care for him even though they have very little to give. It's an interesting dynamic and I am intrigued to see how he will be developed as a character. My only stumble was that I found the writing slightly wordy in the first chapter. It took a little bit for me to get into the flow of the story, but once I was there it was great. Well done.

ALARIC SWIFT: THE CHEATER OF DEATH

A marvelous story, filled with a beautifully descriptive fantastical world of magic but not over the top. Believable would be the word, as much as a fantasy novel can be. Alaric and is a great hero and has a colorful supporting cast as he moves through his year at Oakwood and ends up on his hero's quest. The action and plot are set at a great pace, and although there were a few moments where I found the story lagging, all in all I kept turning the pages wondering what would happen next.

His Queen

It's a fun read, almost a Cinderella-esque fairytale retelling with some spins thrown in. I'm definitely intrigued and interested to see where it's going. Alana has layered the front half of the book with many questions that are just waiting to be answered. Rebekah is a decent character, she is painted as one that stands apart from a superficial status obsessed society, I would be interested in seeing more of what she is into to get a better sense of why Prince Marcus would be drawn to her. Perhaps a question that still needs answered, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of explanation as to why her. Very curious beginning.

A Pawn for Malice

It's a compelling story, one that keeps the reader turning pages. Jessica is a strong likable character that is able to rise above her rather unfortunate circumstances. The descriptions and imagery are painted well and the pacing is easy flowing. There is enough suspense and unanswered questions throughout to keep you reading. I felt that Bryan enters the story a little late, and I think I felt that way because the novel's description is about him not Jessica, which I think is my only real problem with the story. To me this is Jessica's story not Bryan's so I found the blurb/synopsis misleading. Other than that a fun read.

Beneath The Skin

This is a superbly written story, well layered a great balance between action and plot building. It's different than other things on here in a fantastic way. Shakti is a brilliant character of strength and independence, and her supporting cast are all very well written. I loved the duality of machine and mechanics versus the supernatural, and the steampunk element is intriguing and written in an easily believable not over the top sort of way. My only real question would be the twist that occurs in chapter eighteen. Didn't see it coming, and with the back and forth nature of the characters dialogues throughout the first half of the book would have expected it to become the central focus of the story instead of almost a subplot. Still, very well done.

This Never Happened

It's contemplative, it's introspective, and it's sort of crazy. Cepik is struggling through life trying to come to grips with reality and whether identity is reality. The story moves at a decent pace as the reader tries to unravel what is actually happening, the potential psychosis he is surrounded by. There is an overall tone of sadness, as we follow along with Cepik and question whether the fanciful is true and the mundane the dream. It's an interesting read and incredibly complex. I do admit I found the construct of the book difficult to get drawn into. It is written as though the reader is Cepik and in the present tense. It's a style I am not fond us, but that is a personal opinion, others might enjoy it. A curious read for sure.

One Step

I'm compelled to learn where this story is going. There is a sadness layered amongst the happy memories and the writer informs you that something terrible is just around the bend. The family's beginnings, although without a lot of luxury, seem simple and happy enough. It is interesting to read someone's memoir? of their life, it creates an emotional depth and connection to the story, and a fear and compassion for the main character. I hope wherever it's headed there will eventually be a happier end.

Wicked Little Thing

It's funny, it's creepy, it's unique, it's even a little heart warming. Wicked Little Thing spins an interesting and captivating tale. It's a story that walks in darkness and shadows, but has a strange intriguing humor to it. Grin is a well layered character, very likable even though he probably wouldn't believe himself to be such. The horror elements are written well, creepy and page-turning without being too gruesome (I'm not a huge gore person), And even though there's a certain grittiness to it's plot, it's incredibly easy to read. I'm interested to see where Grin and Miriella's journey is headed next, and how they are going to develop their abilities to deal with all that is wicked in this world, and I really want to know what Grin is. Four stars just because it's not complete yet, but a great read.

It's an interesting read, it moves at a good pace, and keeps you wondering where the story is headed next. Haneul and his children are likable characters, even when some of the decisions they've made are not necessarily on the up and up. The story moves through time unevenly, jumping from past to present and then back, which I found a little unnecessary for the overall telling of the story, but a unique idea. It feels like the story could be fleshed out more, Milton could make it longer if he wanted to. A good read though.

The ups and downs of caring for someone so completely that it can impair your judgement and make you say and do things you wouldn't normally. The characters are believable and pull me back to my own experiences in high school. First love is incredibly intoxicating and Phoebe paints that picture throughout this story. I loved the line - "weren't friends, or enemies, just strangers with memories." It's a powerful and very true image of people that used to be in love and break up.

The characters, although pirates, are all likeable, you want them to succeed in these harsh conditions. You want Alex to find love, and Kitty to find peace. The side characters are written with a sense of wanting to know their backgrounds more, who is Vesta or Matthew, why is Nathaniel such a proper gentleman even though he's a pirate captain? It's all very compelling, and I'm excited to see where the story goes next.

The only thing I really question is why Henry would be drawn to someone sleeping on their side turned away from the cage door so he can't see her in any way.

It's an enchanting story of two people not at all drawn to each other, but contracted to be married, and the struggles and challenges they face cause a love and respect to blossom. The actual story is compelling and the rich characters and descriptive language paint a beautiful picture that is easy to follow. I did find it long with very slow moving action in many areas and a lot of set up before our two main characters even have a chance to meet. It felt at times there were unnecessary plot twists included, which for my taste probably could be excluded, like Ozmond near the end of the book, but for someone looking for something epic they probably wouldn't even notice. Elizabeth was a strong beautiful character, determined to do the right thing no matter what, and Nick, although I wasn't sure if I was going to like him in the beginning because of his childish selfish ways, quickly grew on me and I was happy to see how their story played out. A great read for anyone looking for a incredibly detailed period piece with a little magic thrown in.

Ralph I think epitomizes the average student's struggle from college to adulthood.

You can relate to his struggle, because it's the struggle of most of us. What do I want to be, where do I want to live, who do I want to spend my life with, do I take risks or walk the path of the status quo. I found his drifting and daydreaming a fun break to the action, and something I think creative types find themselves doing a lot. I know I'm a big daydreamer.

There were plenty of twists that kept things interesting, with the biggest mystery waiting until the final pages to be sorted out. Around chapter eight I was completely floored and left wondering where the story was going next. Sateria, and Apollo were great characters, I found Johnny obnoxious, but I think that's a personal preference more than a flaw in the writing, I've never found dominating overconfidence an attractive quality, but it does lend for an interesting character.

There will be Sparrows

The story was a sweet, tragic at moments, tale. The characters drew you in, especially Riha. You wanted her to have a happy ending and the plot flowed as you followed through her life. The tying together of the different story lines was creative, and the language was beautifully descriptive and at moments felt like a poem. There are some spelling and pronoun issues like referring to a character as a he when they are a girl. They can cause a little confusion at times, so some more polishing of the manuscript is recommended, but the story is heartwarming.

Beastly House

It's an interesting read, a page turner of a mystery. I really enjoyed the setting of the old estate that's really filled with it's own unique mysteries and quirks, and found the sanitarium sideline an interesting way to go. It allowed for vivid and flawed characters to come alive. The nod to jazz era phrasing and idioms was fun as well. The mystery was compelling and kept you guessing, as does any good mystery.

Secrets on the Walls

Lauren crafts a beautifully descriptive fantasy world in this story. The writing flows easily and even though a period piece the language is an easy read. She draws you in quickly to Sophie and Suzette's world, and Emma's mystery. The painting worlds are vivid and beautiful and there is a great balance between relationship building and adventure plot. I was left hoping that all will end up okay for our two heroines, and excited for the sequel.

Unknown Variant

This book is gritty, and not for the faint of heart, as far as what you can expect the heroine Layla is put through, and yet there is a compelling and tender love story wrapped up in the darkness. An easy flowing writing style, I was drawn to keep turning the pages to find out if Layla and Adonis would ever have happier days. The story sets up well for a sequel, I am interested in seeing if Sara will develop the sci-fi part of this story line, it was left open as to why Layla being an unknown variant is significant and I found myself very intrigued throughout the book to get that answer.

Better Than That

It's a sad and yet somehow sweet story. Even though you basically know how it's going to end Flora pulls you in, making you follow along with Reye and Nick's doomed romance. The writing is poetic and descriptive, painting a beautiful picture of an autumn relationship. The heartache pulls you in. Even though Reye's decision making could be considered somewhat questionable, you empathize with her. It's an interesting point of view to read about and since I've from near the location of the story, I felt a personal attachment.

Prodigy

Well I'm hooked, desperate to know what happens. Rae has created intrigue right from the first sentence with this politicalish thriller. Her writing is strong and easy to read and pulls the reader from chapter to chapter. The mystery of who Olivia is and why she is capable of the things she is, or why she is in danger taunts from every scene. Really looking forward to seeing where this story is headed.

The final codices (revelations)

A well crafted story beautifully and descriptively written. I felt like I was following right along with Francesca, Acan, and the others. It was interesting to see the vampire archetypes blended with Spanish and Mayan culture. I was kept guessing as to where the story was going and how it would all wrap up right to the very end.
