Not every fairytale has a happily ever after.

We only know three things about the Fae: They don't lie, they cheat. What they aren't given, they take. And if they can't rule...they conquer. Now the fate of humanity lies in a battle between good and evil where lines are not easily drawn.

Time travel to 19th century France, brave the gritty streets of New York City, or ente

This review is only for A Fey’s Wolf by Elle Boon.

I have really liked Talia in her appearances in the other stories. She is so totally amazing and strong in a way that no one in her life, other than those in the Fea realm, can understand. What her character went through and the pain that she constantly carried around was torturous. But she is definitely not a shy and retiring flower and she will not be taken unawares again. But that doesn’t mean that she is going to roll over and allow a mating

This is a collection of noteworthy full-length novels written by amazing authors. But let me take a minute to talk about one book in particular that I just set down. (I'm hoping there will be a second book in this series)...when you think of fairy tale reversals, what do you think of? In this, we have a reverse telling of Sleeping Beauty. Even the name of the title is reversed: Beauty Sleep. Now, in the original, we had a beautiful princess who was put to sleep for 100 yrs until a handsome princ ...more

I reviewed FAE 101 by Cyndi Faria. 5 STARS!!!

Oh my goodness!!! I am not one to usually read paranormal romance. I have read some, but I tend to stick to non-paranormal books. Fae 101 is seriously one of the best paranormal romances I have read!! No joke. This book had me captivated right from the start. That very first page pulled me into their world. Cyndi painted me a world so amazing that I did not want to leave at all.

Only a review for Hunted by Dyan Chick

Hunted follows a half mage, half dark fae girl names Jess through her life in Realms Gate. Realms Gate may be a familiar place for readers who have enjoyed Ms. Chick's Dragon Mage series, and it is a great setting for both that tale and this one. Unlike the main character from Dragon Mage though, Jess knows exactly who she is and where she comes from and she wants nothing to do with it. Unfortunately, while there is intrigue about her royal past and tidbits

⭐️⭐️This review is for A Fey’s Wolf by Elle Boon.⭐️⭐️
I really loved this book! Torq came to the Mystic pack years ago when he felt a pull to be there. He had been living with the Iron Wolves and his brother Arynn (Arynn's Chosen Mate: Bad Alpha Dads). Talia was held and tortured for 20 years by a sadistic man who tricked her into believing he was her mate. When she was rescued she retreated to the Fey realm to heal. Torq new at the time of her rescue, a year before, that she was his mate. He did

This review is for Elle Boon's story. I was so happy to see Talia get her happy ever after. Torq as a mate and bonus, she's now close to her daughters. It was supposed to be a short story but it was actually longer than I thought it would be, which was great. Another great addition to the Mystic Wolves series. The story line was very good and there was plenty of action. We had our humor. Visits from our other favorites. Some new creative things, I loved it. Bring on the next one!!

Being the voracious book reviewer that I am, it doesn’t take me long to know what I’ve got when it comes to reading anthologies revolving around a particular genre, which in case are fantasies and fairy tales.

It gets to be rather mundane when every story one reads ends in the proverbial HEA [Happily Ever After], which is one of the reasons I found this collection to be refreshing. Faes go against basically everything we know about what should be good and decent regarding our fellow man. Being di

This review is only for R.S. Broadhead's book Desolation.
I was hooked from the beginning of this awesome book! From waking up covered in dirt, to being rescued, then to being sold to dragon shifters. Emotions will have you feeling some kind of way. It quickly entered into action and the fights are brutal. Not to mention, who doesn't love hot dragon shifters? The tension between Bram and Hava could be cut with a knife. Got to love how emotions mess with the best of us right? A very gripping read

So I haven't read ALL of the stories but the ones I have read have been awesome. One of the favorites so far is Elle Boon's "A Fey's Wolf". It was really great to see Talia get her story with Torq. I loved the humor, the visits from other characters in previous books. Very well written and you can't help but love Torq! These two deserved their HEA!!!!! The other stories that I have read have been really good and I can't wait to read the rest of them.

This review is for Hunted by Dyan Chick. This is the first book in a new series and it was fantastic!
Jess lives in the magical city of Realms Gate. She's running from her dark past, but her freedom is in sight.
Suddenly everything falls apart, though, when a Fae Hunter comes to town. Jess has to figure out if the super hot Fae Hunter, Roan, is there to kill her or to help her. It also doesn't help that bodies start piling up all around her. If you love a good mystery with magic and Fae, then you

I read Elle Boon's and just adored it. Talia so deserved to find her true mate after all she had been through. Torq was perfect for her. A couple of family reunions, old favorites and new ones in the making. Can't wait for her next book in this world!

Will update as I read others in this set.

The book I have read is Marked paradox by Jen Grey and Heather Renee. This has twist and turns and the authors put there own take on fae.
This anthology has different types of books. There are some authors that I have already read their books before and others that are knew to me. Some of the books are full novels whilst others are short stories or novellas.
I would highly recommend this book. There is something for everybody.

Talia is a Fey warrior princess who has been through a lot in her life who finally finds acceptance and love in Torq's strong arms. There is magic, passion, love and a fierce battle in this book! I had so much fun reading it and I couldn't out it down! This is definitely a great story and one you want to get your hands on. If this story is anything to go by then ...more

WOW - the book by Katalina Leon - Destiny's Fae - was the story that I have read. OMG - it was so good!!!

Maya Rousseau saves her money and finally is able to go to France on vacation. She is wanting to try to find information about Andre Bosco. She ends up time traveling to 1903. I can't tell you much more or it will ruin the story for you -- but, OMG, this is one that once you start reading, you will find it hard to put down until you finish.

What an awesome book in the Shades of Fae collection!

Review of A Fey’s Wolf.
I was so excited to get this book and it lived up to expectations. The characters as always are interesting and engaging and 5he storyline kept you reading. It’s a magical read and if this book is anything to go by the the rest of the collection just looks a load better. I would read it in order with the Mystic Wolves as I think it reads better.

Marked Paradox by Heather Renee and Jennifer Grey is the only one I've read from this. I really enjoyed it, had lots of magic, intrigue, and of course the fae! Loved how Rian and Tayvon grew toward each other, as Jaren was the comic relief throughout.

So far I have had the privileged of reading A Fey's Wolf by Elle Boon. A Fey's Wolf is the 5th book in Boon's Mystic Wolves Series.
Our heroine, Talia is broken Fey on the mend from a marriage with a psychotic and evil husband.
Torq, the all alpha hero, is a badass shifter who has waited forever for the the one missing piece in his life, his mate.
I loved Boon's book, she makes her heroines strong and independent and her heroes protective of all the hold dear.
This is the perfect read for so

Talia has made appearances in other books but this one focuses on her, her story, and where she will go next. Talia is finally ready to move forward with her life. She has come back to earth from the Fae realm. Torq has been patient. He has known for awhile that Talia is his mate but that she needed to heal. If she is moving forward with her life he is going to be a part of it. Things aren’t going to be easy though. She can feel a dark fae in the area and she want

CK Dawn, Remnants of Ash - This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it. The story has a couple of unique elements that I haven't seen in this genre before; like minions adapting the code of Japanese honor and seppuku self sacrifice. The story line is interesting with a twist here and there and fast paced. The main characters are interesting, both the human, fae and witches. The supporting characters add meat to story.

The use of vulgar language was very limited, thank you CK, and there

I feel in love worn the characters and their relationships. Of course there had to be characters I didn't like because of what they did or how they acted in the book...like the Queen.
