Dawn is AMAZING! Must Read! Captivating, Enthralling, and…well I don’t want to give it all away

I was asked to review this book, and was totally captivated by it, it is a beautifully written tale of a 17 year old girl who under duress, and duty undergoes a transformation into a strong, warrior, and an amazing woman. The author takes us through this transformation with incredible skill in description, I got so easily lost in the pages I forgot I was supposed to be reviewing it, I could feel Selena’s heart, thoughts and see the world around her.
A great read for fantasy lovers of all ages. I have already gifted this book to friends.This is a masterpiece in teenage literature. I can’t wait for the next one. Alicia Michaels is fantastic.

Rourke Does it Again!

The Sidekick Chronicles;

The Sidekick Chronicles;Volume One

A Gryphon Series Novella
By Stacey Rourke
Published by Anchor Group

I always say, the sidekicks make the books! Rourke nails this with her individualized portrait of the Conduit team. Well written, witty, and incredibly entertaining this addition to the series is a welcome and refreshing look at the world from the viewpoint of each character. The length is perfect as the author doesn’t take it too far, but gives us just enough to keep us wanting more. What a great lead in for the next novel, which I’m already chomping at the bit to read!!

The novella is a must have for all Conduit Fans! And for anyone who isn’t a fan yet….a bit of advice…YOU ARE MISSING OUT!  Click below for links to Rourk’s first two novels

Anchor Anthology Review

Anthology review PARANORMAL DAYS DONE AWRY; Anchor Group Anthology


This is a wonderful collection of stories from some of the best modern paranormal young adult fiction writers in today’s writers world.

I truly enjoyed reading the compiled stories. They were well put together, well written and all took you to another world where you could get lost, or scared, or fly, or laugh and sometimes all of the above.

This is a perfect fall addition to your collection and a great way to enjoy not only some great characters, but a great season.

Here’s to fall and paranormal stories! Like popcorn and caramel, and apple cider and donuts.

I’d take my copy of the anthology to the local cider mill and celebrate the season.
