Book Review: Lagoonfire
The past can be a difficult thing to escape... Decommissioner Thirty-Seven is not the most conventional decommissioner at the Ministry of Divinities, but she takes her role of helping fading gods to retire seriously-and feels bad when things go wrong. Take the decommissioning of Laloran-morna, former god of warm ocean waves: she botched that, somehow, and now he spurts saltwater when upset. When seawater invades a development project in Laloran-morna's old haunts, suspicion naturally falls on him. But is the retired god the source of the problem? Or is it the work of a mortal saboteur? Searching for the answer to these questions brings Thirty-Seven face-to-face with a past she'd rather forget.
Book Review: Swan Lake
The Swan is not as innocent as she appears...

Until she meets William.
Underneath his intoxicating guidance, April explores exquisite freedoms that unlock a powerful side of herself she never knew existed. But the handsome billionaire has a dark side of his own, and may not be the modern-day prince the world believes him to be. Plagued by labels of both good and evil, will he be her salvation?
Or her ultimate undoing?

Book Review: May Day
If the murderer you’re tracking is a vampire, then you want a vampire detective. Just maybe not this one. It’s not that Jack Valentine is bad at her job.

To get to the truth, Jack will have to partner up with her worst enemy. As long as she can keep her cool, Drake will point her to the ringleaders, she’ll find the murderer and no one else will have to die. Body bags on standby.
Book Review: Killian’s Dead

Book Review: The Wolf’s Tooth
So far, the book seems to like it'll be a pretty easy and quick read. The writing style is reminiscent of Tolkien's The Hobbit with the writer taking a direct role in explaining to the reader what is going on, and making corrections as necessary. It also has that faint fairytale-esque feel to it. The prologue and first chapter are both relatively short, so I haven't seen much of the plot or character(s) just yet and can't really comment on them, but I am excited to continue this journey and see what happens!
Book Review: The Lies of Locke Lamora
A Game of Thrones tale, but rather than the high and mighty fighting over a throne, instead, it is the seedy underbelly of the city of Camorr thieving and killing for dominance. Locke and his friends, dubbed the Gentlemen Bastards, the smallest thief unit in Camorr, are out for money. And a whole hell of a lot of it. They have been training their entire lives with their former master for this lifestyle--styling from the rich. However, the head Capa--ruler over all the thieves--has brokered a "Secret Peace" with the Duke of Camorr. Basically, the rich are off-limits for ALL thieves. Breaking of this Peace means a slow, agonizing death, as with any crossing of the Capa. Good thing Locke and his friends are too good to be caught. At least, that's what they thought...
