Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

I really enjoyed Unearthly by Cynthia Hand but at the same time did not quite understand why it appealed to me so much. I am not a huge fan of ‘angel’ themes in Young Adult paranormal novels. Probably the only book of this ilk I have enjoyed previously was Angelfall by Susan Ee but that is because it broke a lot of the conventions of this particular brand of paranormal […]

The Devil’s Reprise by Karina Halle

The Devil’s Reprise is the eagerly anticipated sequel to The Devil’s Metal, a book which managed to both thrill me and chill me to my very core; the blending of scares and emotional gut-punches making it one of my favourite reads of this year.

Of course, Lucas, Savannah and Adam also feature prominently in this […]

Elena, who is preparing to step into the position of alpha, and her mate Clayton Danvers, have to travel to a nearby town to come to the […]

Breathless by Brigid Kemmerer

Nick has always been the most mysterious of the Merrick brothers. He was the level-headed, calm twin – the ying to his fiery twin Gabriel’s yang as it were. The peace-maker – the one who could be relied upon to do the right thing and keep his brothers out of trouble. He always seemed so self-assured and confident. I was looking forward to reading this novella to get more of […]
