Review: Wolf Blood (Outcast Pack, #2) by T. J. Nichols

Review: Wolf Heart (Outcast Pack, #1) by T. J. Nichols

Rating: 4🌈 The Outcast Pack series takes place in the same universe as this author’s Familiar Mates and Mythos series. So if a reader is familiar with those books then they will be able to supply the missing foundation information one would normally expect to receive from a first story here. Paranormal/human interaction. Officially none.… Continue reading Review: Wolf Heart (Outcast Pack, #1) by T. J. Nichols

Review: When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain (The Singing Hills Cycle #2) by Nghi Vo

Rating: 4.5🌈 “THE TAVERN WAS LITTLE more than a waxed canvas tent, tilted towards the south by the wind that rushed headlong down the mountain. The woman who tended the makeshift bar had a thin wispy mustache styled into pointed wings over her lip, and Chih took down her family history while the mammoth scouts… Continue reading Review: When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain (The Singing Hills Cycle #2) by Nghi Vo

Review: The Empress of Salt and Fortune (The Singing Hills Cycle #1) by Nghi Vo

Rating: 4.75🌈 I’m not sure how I came across this incredible author and series. Perhaps it was that amazing cover or the hints of cultural magic mixed with references to strong women within an ancient history fantasy setting in the description. The Hugo award helped. Doesn’t matter. It doesn’t prepare a reader for the sheer… Continue reading Review: The Empress of Salt and Fortune (The Singing Hills Cycle #1) by Nghi Vo

Review: Heppel Ever After (Learning to Love #5) by Con Riley

Rating: 5🌈 Charles and Hugo. I should leave it at that but once more Con Riley has written a deeply emotional multi layered story that’s only supposed to be about a couple’s journey to get married. With this author and couple, it’s never that superficial. Honestly, Charles and Hugo might not even have gotten married… Continue reading Review: Heppel Ever After (Learning to Love #5) by Con Riley

Review: Charles: Learning to Love #1 by Con Riley

Rating: 5🌈 I backed into Charles by way of several of Con Riley’s free holiday stories. Each offered glimpses into this now established couple’s lives and most intimate moments. The first revolves around a foster child that had been returned to them numerous times. It’s a beautiful story about a imperfectly perfect baby and a… Continue reading Review: Charles: Learning to Love #1 by Con Riley
