Weep, Woman, Weep: A Gothic Fairytale about Ancestral Hauntings by Maria DeBlassie – Review by Christine Taysom

Weep, Woman, WeepWeep, Woman, Weep by Maria DeBlassie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a beautiful cultural exploration of generational trauma wrapped in a creepy, gothic, horror story. I absolutely loved it! In this wonderful story we follow the determined and independent Mercy, from frightened and unsure child, self-described as “all elbows and knees” teenager to fearless, self-sufficient and generational trauma cycle breaker. I loved how well the author was able to build this gothic fairytale all while clearly explaining how this curse was really bred from the cycles of trauma in her ancestors’ past. It was beautifully written and was a perfect October book choice! Highly recommend this book!

Entwined (Stone and Cinder Book 1) by A.L. Morrow – Review by Christine Taysom

Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling (Stone and Cinder Book 1)Entwined: A Cinderella Retelling by A.L. Morrow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this book was absolutely amazing and I just could not put it down, so instead of trying to put it down I sat there and binged it in one sitting! This story was so interesting and not at all what I expected in a Cinderella retelling because it blew my expectations away. The three main characters in this book are Ashling, Prince Callum and his amazing husband, and I absolutely loved these characters. They were written so well! The world this retelling is told in however is much more than meets the eye and with fantastic world building you are thrown into a world where dark magic is what took her father from her and threatens to destroy everything good before the clock strikes midnight. I can not recommend this book enough! Definitely a must read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Journeys Through TimeSpace (Journeys Through Book 2) an absolute fantastic continuation of this series. The world building goes even deeper in this continuation and I absolutely loved the developments. Characters really fall into their own in this book and it makes for such fun reading through the various perspectives as this collective journey continues. I really enjoyed some twists at the end I didn’t see coming and loved feeling the dopamine rush of another book that I enjoy so much I struggled to even put it down. This has truly been such a fantastic series and I very much can’t wait for the next in the series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a fantastic continuation of Titanian’s Phoenix, the beautiful and complex lore and magic in the first book is added onto beautifully. This book follows Kallian and Tallarith and the rest of the group as they continue in their fight against the evil threatening to overthrow them and their continued fight to protect all other magic, supernatural creatures, and humans from the evil conspiring against them. I absolutely loved these books, magic is found on every page. Highly recommend this book!

Titanian's Phoenix (Titanian Chronicles, #1)Titanian’s Phoenix by Victoria Saccenti
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was absolutely spellbinding! The complex world and magic was perfect and the characters were so well written and I just loved every page. It is very fast paced and hard to put down. I loved the lore surrounding Soren and Maya and reading their story as the plot developed was thrilling. There is plenty of steamy romance and plenty of action also. The story revolves around Maya and Soren and their inner circle as they fight for all of the good with magic, supernatural creatures and humans against the evil determined to turn the tide in their favor. The other characters in their inner circle all have complexities and I hope to read more about them. All in all I am in awe of the magical world and lore built in this story and can’t wait to read the next book! Highly recommend this book!

THE BOW (HER THREE IMMORTALS Book 3) by HAZEL STORM – Review by Christine Taysom

The Bow (Her Three Immortals, #3)The Bow by Hazel Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow again, I absolutely loved this book and am so glad to have found these books. This book mostly involves Vanessa, Aroz and Antaroz and most of it takes place in the upper world. Finding out the truth of what happened with Aroz and his twin and Vanessa’s prophecy is what is focused in this book. It was again such a fantastic development on the story with these characters and really just cemented this series as a definite favorite of mine. I love a good Greek retelling romance and this series is a perfect touch of myth retelling with an urban twist. Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended!

THE GOD (HER THREE IMMORTALS BOOK 2) by HAZEL STORM – Review by Christine Taysom

The God (Her Three Immortals, #2)The God by Hazel Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book 2 of Her Three Immortals was just as fantastic as the first. While the first book took place mostly in the mortal world and Raef, this book mainly revolves around Grey, Adonis and Vanessa in the Overworld. Grey is so hesitant to let Vanessa in and Vanessa is determined to mark her own way/place in the Overworld. She is the color to his greyscale, literally and it was such a fantastic way to continue the series! Again highly recommended, this book series is quickly becoming an absolute favorite of mine!

The Don (Her Three Immortals Book 1) by Hazel Storm – Review by Christine Taysom

The DonThe Don by Hazel Storm
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Honestly this book deserves all the stars, five isn’t even close to enough to convey how great I thought it was! This book is the beginning of Her Three Immortals Book series, revolving around characters, Vanessa, Grey, Raef Fox, and Aroz. The way their stories intertwined is so seamless and you can never guess what’s going to happen next. Vanessa’s brother is dying of cancer and she would do anything to help him recover.

Honestly this book was fantastic and had me giggling along and feeling emotional as the scenes changed. I have a feeling book 2 is going to give us even more information and development between the characters and I just can’t wait. So speaking of such, I’m off to read it! Read this book, you won’t regret it!

Code Name: Vulture (The Order of the Condor Series Book 1) by Maya Daniels and Sylvia Black – Review by Christine Taysom

Code Name: Vulture: Dark Vampire Romance (The Order of the Condor Series Book 1)Code Name: Vulture: Dark Vampire Romance by Maya Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is absolutely fantastic! The paranormal world building was really well done, from beginning to end! As you read and learn more about Vulture and his world and Danielle and her being sucked right into all the chaos. And as things progress towards the end, questions are answered leaving you thrilled at the prospect of what is next to come in the series!

Danielle is independent, adventurous and brave and is so much more than she appears. Vulture is cold and immoveable yet these two get shoved into a situation much bigger than they realize at the start and it only gets better as you read! Loved this book and I am definitely looking forward to reading more about Falcon in the next one! Highly recommend this for a great Paranormal world and romance!
