The Cursed by Harper L. Woods was a steamy sequel to The Coven, and one that I have been eagerly anticipating after I absolutely devoured the first book. This is fantasy with a wonderfully intriguing twist on the familiar concepts of vampires and witches and I absolutely adore the world the author has created. I would love to see her write more of the world she has created in these books because I’m really not ready to let it go.
This book. This series. This author. Son of the Drowned Empire by Frankie Diane Mallis was such an emotional, character driven “novella” – I use quotes because, let’s be real, it’s a full-sized novel with the size of it – made perfectly for the Rhyan stans out there. Of which I am faithfully one of. What makes this book more than anything is the character development it provides for Rhyan, because it is immense and it is touching and brutal.
Here’s the thing about me. I have a – perhaps unhealthy – love of stalker dark romance. So when I started reading Seeking Stalker by A. A. Dark I was so amped up for what was to come. I mean, come on, with a name like that you just know I was sold on it instantly.
As the characters contend with being snowed in, the reader can take comfort in their own warmth and comfortable surroundings while trying to get to the bottom of all the lies and nefarious things hinted at throughout the course of this novel. It certainly had me captivated, winter weather being nowhere in sight and all, and I found myself flying through the pages, literally unable to stop one I got started.
Curse of the Thorn King was a very enjoyable read with wonderful characters, as few as there were (hello empty castle problems) and it’s a short, yet satisfying read.
