  • Dangerous (Element Preservers Series, Book 1) on March 25, 2012

    Loved this book! Such a refreshing concept for a paranormal series to deal with elements. Took me a couple of chapters to get that it wasn't a secretive thing like in most books but that the entire population knows about people having elemental powers but it didn't put me off atall. The characters are well written and have depth and mystery to them. The developing relationships that Ria has are gripping and seem real. I've read alot of paranormal fiction of all different types and this was the perfect blend for me. Action, romance and magic. Was disappointed it ended
  • Illicit Magic (Book 1, Stella Mayweather Series) on April 05, 2012

    Lovely story with a dark start which propels Stella into a new world of magic which she has always denied she has. Meets wonderful friends and a gorgeous boyfriend. Has lots of ups and downs, thoroughly enjoyed it!
  • Two Halves on May 09, 2012
    (no rating)
    Unusual concept for a paranormal book that the vampire race needs saving by two half breeds destined to fall in love. Sarah finally meets William, literally the man from her dreams when her life is threatened. Little does she know that it always has been but those who love her have done their utmost to protect her, even lost their lives. You journey through with Sarah as slowly the secrets are revealed. It had a good flow and was well written but it didn't immediately grab my attention but I think that may be more down to personal choice. Well worth the read if you prefer YA

  • Human on May 20, 2012

    There's no tedious preamble with this story, it jumps straight to the point with 17 year old Ariel turning up to High School thinking she must be in the Twilight zone when everyone remembers spending the last 3 years studying with a stunningly gorgeous boy Devin but her. Are they playing a prank or is there more to it? Very few editing errors and had a natural dialogue flow which was comfortable to follow. Great twists and turns in the tale with easily distinguished characters being good or evil, but then the story is about Angels and Demons after all. Very good YA paranormal fiction suitable for all readers. Hope there's a second book to come! 5/5 Please leave a review on Amazon aswell!!! There's only mine on there atm and i want everyone to know how great it is
  • Unicorn Witch on Aug. 28, 2012

    The Unicorn Witch is based on Refuge, the alternate world to Earth where magic exists and is a way of life to it's inhabitants. Anything needed is conjured with a thought and your animal familiar is your equal and best friend. Life is perfect...for those unaffected by a mystery illness robing people of their magic. Tyana's friend Darren was the first affected when they were children but was by no means the last. Tyana progressed with her magical career while Darren stayed behind to continue life as a normal human. Years later she's been made head of the task to find Who? How? and Why? by Merlin. Which her trusted familiar, the Unicorn Karim helping the two embark on a quest across refuge to find the answers. Meanwhile in Camelot, the latest refugees from Earth arrive just outside Tyana's family ranch and are welcomed and introduced to this new magical world that they thought only existed in stories. The story has an easy natural flow that continuously piques throughout to keep it fresh. The dialogue is natural between the characters with good abbreviation. It's not over written and I would have liked to have read more! Honestly can't pick out a favourite character as their all likeable and well developed with the story being told from different view points. A truly magical tale.

  • Immortalis Carpe Noctem on Jan. 06, 2013

    Alyssa's having a very bad day and it's not going to get better. She's lost her job, probably about to lose her apartment and does the same thing all the time. Where's the excitement? A bad decision has devastating consequences and she becomes a vampire. She's sired by the deep and brooding Lysander, a millenia old vampire living on his own in Las Vegas. Both their lives were crawling along until they met each other and realized what they'd been missing. Behind every love story there has to be a bad guy though and their are multiple ones in this story. Poor Alyssa's awakened into a dangerous new world and she has to learn the rules quick. Easy read with some very dramatic moments. Death and violence is in abundance as they are afterall, Vampires. No noticeable editing errors and the language was current. Alyssa a like-able character who you identify with. She yearns for more but isn't sure whether she can pay the price for those choices.Her relationship with Lysander can be abit frustrating but it never was going to be easy with him being her sire. Overall an enjoyable fantasy series
