When I saw The Demi-Monde: Winter being publicized as a winter release, I had no idea what it was about but the title kept capturing my eye. Little did I know what a treat I had in store for me.

I hadn’t read any of her other work so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but after reading this stand-alone novel, I’m definitely a fan. Although this is a young adult novel, I think it will appeal to paranormal fantasy fans of all ages.

When bestselling author Nicola Marsh wrote me a note about her new novel, Busted in Bollywood, she had me at “Bollywood” because I’ve been a Bollywood movie fan for years. I agreed to read it and review it if I felt it was something you guys would like. I was only a few pages into the book when I realized I was going to love it and so were you, whether you know anything about Bollywood or Indian culture. It’s a laugh-out-loud funny, universal story that I’m…Continue

The book cover for The Emperor’s Knife by Mazarkis Williams immediately caught my eye and, when I read the publisher’s blurb, I knew I wanted to read this one. The combination of thriller and fantasy, with a mysterious plague and lots of court intrigue mixed in – how could I resist? I don’t think you’re going to be able to resist The Emperor’s Knife either.
