Undying Light is the first book in The Stella Maris Series by Aurora Wildey. This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Wildey, so I really wasn’t sure what I could expect from one of her books. But I was quite intrigued by the synopsis, and I love a great urban fantasy- so I took the chance and grabbed a copy to explore. This is an intriguing urban fantasy with paranormal elements, magic, action, adventure, secrets, agendas, danger, dramatic developments, tension, and more. The story is told from multiple POV’s, which gave the story extra interest and depth. When Kaela is attacked, a stranger with enhanced abilities comes to her rescue, saving her, but is gravely injured in the process. Kaela takes a risk, exposing her own powers of light in order to save him. And so, the adventure begins. Add in a protective immortal, more danger, agendas, trust issues, angst, and plenty of secrets- and this story takes an intriguing turn. What does Book # have in store for us? Happy Reading…

Much Ado About Dying is the second book in the Guardians of Phae series by Rowan Dillon. This is a highly original urban fantasy with drama, adventure, danger, mysteriousness plague, an ancient god, pain, heartache, fear, and hope. This continues the story that we started in book one, so I highly recommend reading that before starting on this instalment. If the bombings weren’t bad enough, now there is deadly plagues to contend with as well, while till coming to terms with newfound abilities. Having no choice but to battle an ancient god as the fate of the world is at stake, certainly tests Roisin like never before. What happens makes for an intriguing read. As with the first book, I felt that the story ‘lagged’ in places which made the story drag at times. I felt bogged down in an over-abundance of information that I felt didn’t drive the story forward and therefore seemed unnecessary. But I still do love the premise of this new series, as well as some of the details and developments- and can’t help but wonder what the next book will hold. Happy Reading!

Ice Dance by Vik Azeem is an original urban fantasy that swept me up into quite a fun adventure. This is the first book that I have read by this author, so I was curious about what the story might hold, so I took a chance and clicked a copy, and set off on this fun adventure. The story is woven around an unemployed accountant, Hassan, who has come to a bit of a cross-roads in his life. He’s unemployed, about to become homeless, is a little jaded, and feels like his creativity is being stifled. Then, unexpectedly, he meets Yasmine who is like a fresh breath of air to his stagnant life. He becomes entranced by her free-spirited energy. But things aren’t quite what they seem as he is soon to learn. New Year’s Eve turns his world upside down and introduces him to a world he never knew existed outside of storybooks. With magic, different realms, portals, paranormal beings, secrets, danger, drama, friendship, family, banter, action, and dangerous foes- this story really comes to life quite vividly. I loved the sprinkling of humour throughout the storyline as it added an extra element of fun to the whole experience. The story is well-woven, detailed, and descriptive- with some clever world-building. Vik Azeem has a bit of a lyrical feel to their writing which suits the magical realism of the storyline. I enjoyed the story and look forward to exploring more of this author’s work in the future. Happy Reading!

Unearthly Magik is the first book in the Black Cauldron Detective Agency series by Matilda Reyes. It is a superb urban fantasy full of mages, action, adventure, drama, magic, the supernatural/paranormal, suspense, danger, agendas, wonderful world-building, crime & investigation, tension, secrets, and mystery. I really loved the premise of the story, and having read a few of Ms. Reyes other books, I couldn’t wait to dive into this one. I loved the characters, the whole supernatural detective agency trope, the missing (powerful and dangerous) grimoire, the plots and agendas, the wonderful world-building of the hidden ‘world’ within New York City, the friendships/banter/quips/antics, the adventure that results from the search for the grimoire, the other ‘jobs’ the agency investigates, and the fact that there is more to come in this series- as I am definitely hooked by Ava and co. Whilst I did enjoy the story, there were quite a few editing issues with this book that I am sorry to say definitely detracted from my overall appreciation of the whole story. Little things, like missing words, wrong words, unfinished sentences, and repeated info, meant that I was regularly ‘pulled out’ of the story- which left me frustrated. This should/could have been a 5+ Star read, but unfortunately it was let down by simple editing issues. The story does have a lot going on in it, and has a fairly fast pace, which the author does choreograph quite well. The story easily captured my attention and imagination, and pulled me into a wonderful adventure (minus the editing issues). I also appreciated that the characters were really well-developed individuals with their own unique personalities, quirks, and flaws- who continued to evolve, develop and grow over the course of the story. I am looking forward to seeing where we go from here. Bring on Book #2! Happy Reading!

Wishes don’t always turn out the way you hope… From Brick & Darkness is the exciting debut novel from J.L. Sullivan. It is a wonderfully woven YA urban fantasy with mystery, magic, action, adventure, suspense, puzzles, manipulation, agendas, angst, drama, folklore, friendship, and more. A yearning for a better life, an unusual ring, a sinister djinn, and plenty of danger- Dax is about to discover that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. An engrossing and fun read. Looking forward to seeing what Mr. Sullivan does next. Happy Reading!
Rovena has her hands full. She must keep the dead man alive. Yep, he arose again but this time with a new soul. And it isn’t as easy as she may think. Rovena is a strong and touch chick that will do what she needs to to survive. She is a hunter. I found this book entertaining. It is wildly unpredictable, and I love this. This is a large factor on what pulled me in. From page 1, I was sucked in by the action (demon fight, anyone?). The characters are well developed. The story has a little of everything in it: humor, mystery, fantasy, paranormal, romance. This is one of the best paranormal books I’ve read this year. I literally couldn’t put it down until I had finished it.

“Diabolical Sword” wasn’t my favorite as it seemed to take too long for there to be what felt like real peril for the main character. I’m used to reading books that are extremely fast paced from page one.
I did really enjoy the premise of the book. Everything was well described, the characters, their actions, the magical beings e.t.c. My favorite part was the last few chapters as they were so exciting and full of action.

Diabolical Sword: An Urban Fantasy Mystery (The Charm Collector Book 1) 4 out of 5 stars This book one in the Charm Collector collection and I adored this urban fantasy. Harlow is hysterical and the constant commentary between Harlow, Caspian and Welsh alone was enough to keep me going. Harlow is a simple girl, just trying to live her best life. But don’t let anyone tell you that, that life is on the gray side of the criminal. When Harlow ends up with a sentient sword, she is fast wanting to get rid of it, only to find out, that the sword has taken a liking to her, and has made her life, a living nightmare. Soon Harlow finds herself on the run from the cops and other crazy shifter creatures. This book was super fun. The characters and world were so detailed and incredibly thought out. Lovers of sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery will love this book.

Wow this novel is by far one of the best books I have ever read, and I feel like I have a consistent history of finding, picking and reading novels that turn out to be just fantastic reads. I sat down and finished this book in one session and let me tell you I could not put this book down! I have had a long standing interest in the myths and legends of Celtic, Gaelic and Irish origin. My maiden name is McCarty and my ancestors immigrated from Galway, Ireland leaving the surname McCarthy in Galway and switching to McCarty upon arrival to the United States. I got such a kick out of reading this book that was inspired by legends and myths of gods and goddesses that have always interested me, set in the parts of Ireland my family originated from. Then to top it all off Kristin wove this beautiful tale that just kept me intrigued and in love with the characters she created. Saorise is an amazing protagonist and I loved learning about this urban world seeped in myths and legends through her eyes and mind. I am eagerly looking forward to November to read the next book in this series because I can’t wait to see how this story and the characters continue to develop and unfold. In the meantime you will definitely catch me rereading this book! Awakening the Gods (Rise of the Celtic Gods #1) isn’t a book you can only read once for satisfaction, it necessitates the re-reading of it in order to surround oneself with the magic for a little while longer.

Dahlia Nite is back to up her old tricks again and this time, she is chasing a banshee through the streets of Sentinel City, something very unusual must have brought it there, but after she and her Sidekick Casey Evans take it out and they succeed despite its best efforts to kill them in return, but no sooner than they are done that they are called in to another gruesome scene at the riverbank, a lot of body parts have been uncovered by the recent storms and not all of them are human, neither are the bits of tanned skin they find at the scene either, but it isn’t just an animal attack, there are also precision cuts where the parts have been removed and it is in a place where nobody really goes and hasn’t done for many years, but when they are called over to a nearby sewer where there are more body parts floating around, the two decide to go into the tunnels and take a look around.
What they find there looks like a converted jail cell, complete with bars, but it also looks abandoned and smells like it too, as Casey checks out all of the cells, Dahlia hears something moving further down the tunnels and goes to investigate it. They know that she is tailing them and that they are leading her somewhere specific, but she has no idea where, until she enters the basement of an old steel works where rumours of toxic waste and man eating mutated piranhas abound, but what she finds there is more sinister, multiple gurney’s covered in blood where it looks like the victims were strapped on while they were tortured and dismembered, she can sense the horror which lies in wait for her as well. She spies the person running along a skywalk being followed by another three people, but more are on their way as Dahlia is showered in bullets and only just avoids them before being engaged in hand to hand combat, again! She is surprised by the speed and agility, they look human, but she has a feeling that they aren’t, but there is no telltale smell or other indication telling her what they are, but she does her usual, but gets no further information from any of them before she is forced to set the place alight, hoping that there are no more victims being caged there as well.
As she tries to explain away the destruction and get Casey out of the way of it, Detective Creed doesn’t believe her, again and tja Captain of the force wants answers yesterday. The only lead they have is the van tyre tracks which they found and as it is the only solid thing, it means that they will be doing their best to track it down. Just as they finish the meeting Casey informs them of a crime at a past crime scene of an altercation which may have a non-human origin, so all three head three due to its proximity to the steel works. When they get there, Creed interviews the witness and Dahlia goes to look for clues to what happened and what creatures were involved, she finds some blood and some fabric, one she shares and one she examined and keep for further tests, but what she initially finds explains the mystery of how she wasn’t able to smell or use her senses to identify her assailants earlier. She also sees the evidence of a struggle and works out that it probably isn’t prudent to stay in the dark as it is in the backyard of the criminals they are looking for.
Later that night, Dahlia is running tests and comparisons to try and find out what type of creature the suspect is when the alarm in her gym goes off and when she gets there, she knows exactly who and why, she talks to Casey again about the dangers he was just walking into and although she understands that he just wants to feel close to and find his sister, she still tells him off until they are interrupted by someone being attacked, they try to help, but the victim doesn’t speak their language and as they are trying to decide what to do, they escape, now they have to worry a out then becoming a victim of a different type, these worries are put onto the back burner when a new lead appears and when it shows other connections, the hunt is in for her and Creed.
Will they be able to figure out who is behind the abductions and dismemberments, or will they fall foul of more than they can handle as the tangled web of secrets is revealed? This is another whirlwind of a tide across realms where revelations are not always what they seem and which hook you into their mysteries as well.
Dahlia Nite is back in the next installment of this series and yet again, she has another crime to solve, but this time she has to overcome her own personal barriers as well as professional ones, although having Casey Evans around to talk to us helpful and her partner Detective Creed is as much of a thorn in her side as ever, but they all make a good team. This time, Dahlia is on one of her nighttime forays into the darkness and the seedier part of town, she is interrupted by a familiar scent, when she follows it she finds a young women who doesn’t belong there covered in blisters and peeling skin, but there is nothing she can do to help her when she combusts right before her eyes, but when the same thing happens at the gym the next day after her a d Casey have been sparring, there aren’t just blisters this time, the woman in question is mutating and as Dahlia is trying to help her, she combusts again, but this time it is in the middle of the street where everyone can see.
When Detective Creed arrives on the scene, he is frustrated and also slightly annoyed that is on Dahlia’s doorstep again, but not surprised either, however when he learns it is another spontaneous combustion case, he is not happy either, but at when it is revealed that Casey knows this woman, they start on tracking her movements for the last few days to see where she may have contracted whatever caused her death and to see if it uncovers any other victims. A few days later, some calls have come in about someone attacking their girlfriend in a club and then going on a violent rampage around the city, but when Dahlia and Creed finally chase the person down, it is clear that it is another victim, but this one is not easily put down and when Dahlia has chased him to the top of a building under construction, Creed is right on her heels, but she cannot get any information from him apart from one word before he falls to his death in a fiery ball.
Dahlia has no further ideas on what is causing the outbreak, but when a friend screams for help when he starts to report a crime, she is shocked to hear that he stole and came into contact with some of whatever was causing the problem, so as she sets off for another late night hunt, she runs into an old enemy, but she does find a name and a possible connection, however nothing goes as smoothly as planned, but as the bodies keep appearing and the mystery deepens, will Dahlia be able to keep a lid on what is happening and find out who is behind it, or will the city be swarmed by these rage fueled and mutated humans and in some cases, can they even still be called humans? This is another action packed thriller with a whirlwind of twists and turns throughout which will leave you guessing until the very end.
Dahlia Nite is a woman who moves around a lot ever since she escaped from her home and her execution, all because she paused while carrying out her duty when she was startled by something she couldn’t easily explain, so she ran in the middle of the night leaving everything and everyone she knew behind and escaped to the human realm, but her past has caught up with her now she has moved back to Sentinel City and not just when she is reliving her pain and fear in her dreams whenever she goes to sleep. When she uncovers a nest of otherworldly creatures who have been killing the humans in the city she currently calls home, she has no choice but to exterminate them, although it isn’t easy and she has to hide her true form while doing it, she completes her mission, but while working out how the creatures made it there, it is what they say which troubles her more, this and the fact that these particular creatures normally live alone, but here there were five of them, just another thing to add onto her list of strange things happening in Sentinel City.
The next day she is contacted by her contractor saying that there has been a murder, but that it is so unusual in the way it was commited that she is being called in to help and so keep the humans from finding out what truly happened there, but when she arrives at the scene, she is shown in by a police officer who looks like he doubts what he is seeing as she doesn’t look old enough to have experience of dealing with these types of investigations. The brutality of the murders is the first thing she notices and the manner in which they were killed is devastatingly familiar and that is before she has even properly looked at the bodies, but she knows exactly what did this, the thing she needs to find out now is why this family is dead. When she meets the captain of the police force there, she learns that she is being assigned a partner to investigate with, but after she requests to be alone with the scene, she confirms her original suspicions, even though she doesn’t want to. Later on in the day, she goes to a favourite haunt to have a drink and think about what she had found out that day, however, she senses someone nearby who could be involved and gives chase, however, when she gets close to them, they attack and this leads to more bodies like the ones at the house, but she loses sight of the person when they escape out of the back of the building.
Things start to get more complicated after she meets her new partner and that is when she realises that this one is going to become a thorn in her side, especially when the bodies start to pile up and any leads she has are either dead ends or things she can’t explain to the other officers on the team, she knows she is running out of time to figure it all out, but that doesn’t make it any easier on her. Will Dahlia be able to figure out who is killing these people and why while also covering it all up at the same time, or will the cat get out of the bag and reveal everything she has been trying to hide? This action packed urban fantasy will leave you wanting more as you are pulled in all the same directions as Dahlia as you try to figure things out with her.
I loved the first book so I was highly anticipating this one. There’s lots of action and magic in this one, and the world-building is complex and detailed. I love the mix of urban fantasy, cyberpunk and paranormal elements, as it adds a lot of tension and keeps you guessing.

This is a sequel so the first one in this series needs to be read first to fully grasp this book. We leave off with Rune, who has inherited this bar from her aunt after her aunt passes away. This book picks up 2 months after those events take place and in book one, she meets Saint and the events leading up to has caused Saint to take time to come to grips with it all. And even though she hasn’t seen Saint, Saint turns up when this new adventure hits. Megan has delivered a bright brilliantly costructed story for readers alike to enjoy!!!!

The Saint of Liars (Lucky Devil Book 2) by Megan Mackie. This book was just as great as the first not that I had any doubts because this author knows how to create a story world that keeps readers coming back for more. I recommend reading these in order. Once again I was taken on a journey with everything I could ask for in a great story. The characters draw you into their world and I for one was happy to get lost in its pages for a while. The storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking. Even the smallest details are are focused on and I love when even the small things matter. I’m definitely looking forward to more from this author. Five stars all the way and highly recommended!

The Saint of Liars (The Lucky Devil series Book 2) by Megan Mackie was a good dystopia read. This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first. The world was fantastic and well written. Rune and St. Benedict were very well developed and I loved them! This was definitely a page turner that I did not want to put down.

The Saint of Liars is the second book in the Lucky Devil series, i recommend reading them in order! I thought the first book was fantastic, but then i got my hands on this one! Old faces and new appear in this book, and it will keep you even more invested than the first one! Although both books have left me with unanswered questions, i’m sure the author will get to that in future books! I thoroughly enjoy this series so far and i just cant wait for more!

The Saint of Liars is the second book in the Lucky Devil series. I highly recommend reading the first book before you read this one to get a good grasp of the characters and events that set this book up. Plus, the first book is an amazing read too. I truly love the blend of tech and magic in this series. In Saint of Liars, Rune discovers more about her abilities, which is a fascinating aspect of the story line. The tension between St. Benedict and Rune is nearly palpable. I’ll be interested to see how that plays out in future installments. St. Rachel is kind of a person I love to hate. Well, not hate really, but she keeps throwing a wrench in the potential romantic works. This book is a stellar read! Highly recommend it.

This book is so much better than the last one. I know..I know… I needed the last one to help make sense of some of this one. We see a lot of the same characters coming back into play. This story is full of suspense and has a lot of action. It just kept rolling right along and I could hardly put it down. Plus there is the whole side story between Rune and St Benedict. Will they or won’t they? Can they or can’t they? To be honest…this area still left me up in the air. I even read slowly and multiple times.
Overall it’s a real good story. Characters that are likable and you learn to care about. Sometimes it take you out to left field but the story doesn’t leave you there. It always brings you back.

This is book two in the ‘The Lucky Devil’ series by Megan Mackie, the storyline is set in an alternate Chicago where technology and magic are in competition with each other. This is an urban fantasy/cyberpunk novel with a fast paced storyline and some great characters. SciFi novels are not my usual genre but having discovered the first book in this series and enjoyed it I was happy to give this second instalment a try and I thoroughly enjoyed being back with Rune and visiting her ‘Lucky Devil Bar’. I was pulled back into the alternate world that Megan Mackie wonderfully creates and was fully immersed in Runes next adventure. Rune Leveau knew the peace couldn’t last and once again finds herself at the centre of a battle between bullets and magic as warring factions converge on her bar. Everyone from the Kodiak Corporation, the Magic Guild, and the Faerie King himself, are after the ‘Finder’. The Masterson Files, which is a computer program with the impossible ability to cast magic is still the major prize wanted by all and they all think that Rune is the key as her former husband built the revolutionary code. Rune feels that cybernetic corporate spy, St. Benedict is the only one who can help her but she’s aware that they are both keeping secrets and telling each other lies. Rune finds she has to trust the, Saint of Liars to help her find Justin Masterson. This novel was full of action and drama all set in an alternate world where main character, Rune really brings the story together and moves the plot along. I was gripped from beginning to end and found the storyline exciting and the narrative easy to read.

This is the second book of an action-packed series by this author. Very fun read that will keep you on the edge. This story flows great with the first. I loved the world just as much as the characters who this story centers around.

The Saint Of Liars (Lucky Devil Book 2) by Megan Mackie.
This is the second book in the Lucky Devil series and it is another great addition. We pick up with a Rune the main character, Rune finds herself drawn into a war between corporations, everyone wants her for her powers of finding lost things. I really enjoyed reading this book, I love Rune her character is so relatable and you feel instantly drawn to her. We see a few characters from book one including Saint Benedict. We also have some new characters to get to know and I think they added a lot to this story. Really looking forward to the next instalment. I would definitely recommend reading.

We are back with Rune Leveau at the Luck Devil Bar. We Met Rune in Book one when she had inherited the bar from her Aunt who had recently passed away. The Lucky Devil series is about a young woman named Rune who is a wife named June Masterson who reinvented herself after her abusive husband threw her under the bus for his crimes. Rune doesn’t trust the corporations so things are rough until she decides she wants to find out her ex-husband’s secrets. Rune is a great protagonist and Saint Benedict is just the perfect love interest for her despite both of them carrying serious emotional baggage. The story truly does deepen and expand, building on the characters and plots from the first book. The world Megan builds is so clear. Magic and corporate intelligence, is a wonderful combination. Once again Megan Mackie has created a book that has the old world and modern world colliding in the most amazing way. There is magic, action adventure, suspense, some mystery, drama, tension, chemistry, intrigue, danger, secrets, different realms….as well as a slew of mystical and mythical creatures. Who wouldn’t want to jump down this rabbit hole?!?!

Wow! The Saint of Liars (The Lucky Devil series Book 2) by Megan Mackie was so good I read it in two sittings. Would have been one but my body betrayed me and forced me to sleep. So yes, it was that good. Excellent world crafting in this story as always. This one came with a new twist, not only do you get the clear visual of the magical world there is a new digital world too. The relationship between St. Benedict and Rune keeps me in a dither. I think Rune knows how she feels. An excellent story with in-depth characters that I became totally immersed in. You won’t be sorry with this one.

The Saint of Liars (Lucky Devil Book 2) by Megan Mackie 4 Stars!!!!
A yet again I am drawn into the supernatural world of Megan Mackie’s design and not let down. I really found myself unable to put this book down. I just really like how the drama is really balanced. The characters really come to life and I felt as though I was right in the action with them.
I found that I could relate to Rune and could really feel the emotions she was going through. The author has done such a great job of balancing out the drama in the book and grabbing the reader’s attention. I really got drawn into the book and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

This is the second book in the Lucky Devil Series and I enjoy this just as much as the first one.
Rune is back and finds herself in the middle of a war between corporations. They all want to use her special ability to find something. Rune’s husband was working on a computer programme that allows you to use magic. However this programme and the code got lost when Rune and her husband James were arrested and the corporations believe Rune is the key to finding it and allowing them to become more powerful.
The only person she feels she can trust in this is St Benedict but with the lies he has told her in the past can she really trust him.
Can she solve this mystery and actually find out what happened to her husband James and save the programme from the wrong hands or will she be betrayed by the people she thought she could trust.
Its an edge of your seat gripping ride that keeps you hanging on to find out what happens at the end.
