Review: Twice as Deadly

This book picked up minutes after the first book ended, which is good because the cliffhanger ending in the first book was killer. While it started right away, it did take a few chapters to get to the easy and relaxed feel of the first book. Those first few pages felt forced and formal, but once the writing relaxed, it was fun and entertaining again. This book focused on Bane, who is such a sweetheart.

Review: Dark Halo

This was an intense and very dark horror story. Don’t let the moody paranormal angel cover fool you, this is horror story where people die. And not just the bad guys!

One thing I did really enjoy was the snarkiness of Katie. She’s been thrown into this crazy situation, […]

Review: Downside Girls

This is a short story collection that introduces the reader to the world of the Hidden Empire series. As an introduction, this book worked great. After finishing it, I knew I wanted to read the first book in the Hidden Empire series. The world building through the short stories was very well done, and made me want to experience more. Looking at each story individually, I liked Collateral Damage the best. It was simple yet complex. It was the first story in the collection, so offered my first taste at Angels and the world of topside vs downside. Things were […]
