The Twisted Tree by Rachel Burge

I admit, the very first thing that drew this book to me was the gloriously creepy cover. However, the synopsis also had me pretty much convinced too!

Review: Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

I absolutely adored Storm. I had seen many glowing, overwhelmingly positive reviews for this series but for some reason had never gotten around to reading it even though it looked like something I would really enjoy (I am a sucker for a good paranormal tale with well-drawn, intriguing characters). I stumbled across the first book and on a whim decided to purchase and read it. I wondered if it would live […]
