The Janus Elixir by Kyle Robert Shultz

Reminded me quite a lot of a Doctor Who episode wrapped in an entertaining classic horror mash-up with some dragon snark thrown in. As easily snackable as the rest of Shultz's stories. Dive in for an easy-to-read treat!

Beast Hunter by Michele Israel Harper
Rate this book
Clear rating
A well-written introduction to a soon-to-come Beauty and the Beast retelling! Great characterization, great riffs on expected tropes, and a flawed, kickbutt heroine that you can root for. Nicely done!

Resilience by Amy Brock McNew
Rate this book
Clear rating
A worthy third book in the series that brings the same brutal fight scenes, agonizing growth through awful trials, and intense moments leading to a heck of a climax. Good job!

Dave Barry
“I believe it was Shakespeare, or possibly Howard Cosell, who first observed that marriage is very much like a birthday candle, in that 'the flames of passion burn brightest when the wick of intimacy is first ignited by the disposable butane lighter of physical attraction, but sooner or later the heat of familiarity causes the wax of boredom to drip all over the vanilla frosting of novelty and the shredded coconut of romance.' I could not have phrased it better myself.”
