- Mark of the Wolf
on March 24, 2012
First off let me just say that I didn't like werewolves before reading this. I read a lot of popular series with werewolves and just didn't get the appeal but after reading this I know why werewolves are so awesome! I really enjoyed that Gareth (who's a werewolf) actually acted like a wolf. When reading most books that contain werewolves/shifters they always act very human, but given that their wolves they should act differently than humans, more wolf like and animalistic. I thought Gareth was rough and a litte aggresive but never mean...just like a werewolf would be with its mate. I also really liked Maddy, she was innocent without being a doormat and strong without being out of character. She's a main character you can really connect with. The story also just flows in a way where I can't think of anything that would have made this book better:) I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
- Shadeland (The Ethereal Crossings, 1)
on Oct. 24, 2012
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Paranormal
Rating: 5 / 5 Stars
*Note - This is book one of The Ethereal Crossings
I totally loved this book! In Liv's world Eidolons (supernatural creatures) revealed themselves a year ago, resulting in a revolution that still causes pain today. The concept of supernatural creatures having willingly and openly revealed themselves was quite different from most fantasy/paranormal novels, and the fact that the reveal resulted in a revolution was especially interesting.
After reading Shadeland, I am fairly certain that Liv is one of my favorite main characters of all time. D. L. nicely avoided the stereotypes that many YA main characters are made of. Liv comes across as a very real, relatable seventeen-year-old girl. I also enjoyed that her best friend Luke was an Eidolon, because of this the two have a very special relationship and compliment each other very well.
The rest of the characters were quite fascinating as well. The bounty hunter, Jared was very awesome and I'm seriously hoping that he is in book two. We meet many other Eidolons as well, both good and bad. D. L. Miles breaks away from the common and presents unique creatures that aren't very well known in the paranormal genre right now.
To sum it up, this book was so good that I couldn't put it down! You definitely want to check out this novel! :)

- Fenridge (The Ethereal Crossings, 2)
on Nov. 04, 2012
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Rating: 5/5 Stars
After reading the first book in The Ethereal Crossings, Shadeland, I could not wait to read Fenridge!
Fenridge begins a few weeks after Shadeland ended. Liv once again becomes caught up in a murder/mystery, because she just can't resist. ;)
Liv is still an awesome main character, she's goes through a lot in this book, many changes. Much of what she thought she knew about her family and friends, turns about to be wrong, and the reader feels a lot of sympathy for her. The relationship between her and Jared also takes a step up, which will please readers who have been rooting for this romance.
We are introduced to some new Eidolons as well. And more of Liv's family, we also learn a few interesting things about her past.
The paranormal/fantasy elements of this series jump right off the page. The author presents an exciting world of supernatural creatures that blends with our own. There are tons of surprises and unexpected twists.
D. L. Miles is a great writer who keeps the reader turning pages! I am anxiously awaiting book #3!

- Sora's Quest (The Cat's Eye Chronicles #1)
on April 18, 2013
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Amazing! I absolutely loved this book! But I'm not sure how I will handle the wait till October for the sequel. ;) I loved following Sora's journey as she rose up to the challenges she faced and discovered she was stronger than she thought. Sora is a princess and young, though I don't think we are ever told her exact age. It was definitely refreshing that she didn't automaticly become the stereotypical rich, royal girl. Though she seems a but out of place in the 'real' world, I thought she was very noble in how she handled all of it.
Sora and her companions became friends at a very nice pace, not to fast or to slow. Crash, the sexy, mysterious assassin, just might be my favorite character as well as my new book crush. I can't wait to see what happens to him in the next book.
Sora's Quest is filled with an abundance of descriptions and detail. The fantasy elements enthrall you in the story but the characters remain interesting, original and easy to relate to. The ending was crazy! I definitely did not see it coming.
Once I started reading I could not put this book down and I think anyone who enjoys fantasy should read it!
