Book Review: Widdershins (Whyborne and Griffin #1) by Jordan L. Hawk

Widdershins

I love a good paranormal romance. Laurell K Hamilton’s “Anita Blake Vampire Hunter” series sunk its teeth into me, and kept me hooked to this very day. Too often though, the paranormal aspects become romanticised and no longer provide the scares they once did.

Widdershins came as a recommendation from my boyfriend and boy did it hit the spot. Do not let the cover fool you, this book has real charm.

Review: Double Take by J.K. Pendragon

Double Take

Always a sucker for an Egyptian themed anything, I knew i’d be into this book as soon as I saw the cover. The description had me intrigued, what with the “magical science” and the hints at a steamy fling with a “handsome graduate student”. Of course I hit that download button.

WARNING: This is a book featuring adult sexual themes of a vivid nature. Do not pass go if you cannot handle this.

Inked

During a recent binge watch of BookTube videos, I came across one from JesseTheReader where he talked about a few of his anticipated winter 2015 releases. Inked was the first on the list, and the cover combined with the synopsis grabbed me straight away.

Laurell K Hamilton was the author that introduced me to Paranormal Romance, with her most popular character Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter. After consuming all of those, I in turn fell in love with her other big book series, featuring Meredeth Gentry, Faerie Princess. “A Shiver Of Light” is the ninth entry in the series, and I could barely contain my excitement when I saw it had finally released.

Since this the ninth book in the series, reading beyond this point will definitely spoil you on what has happened so far. You’ve been warned!
