This is a review for Cirque de la Lune by Emma Hamm.

What an amazing and unique story!


When Evelyn and her circus friends find a man washed up in the river, little did they know that rescuing him would not only safe his life, but change it in the best ways possible. As outcast they spend their days working for the ringmaster who does nothing to help them and everything to take advantage of them. Particularly, Evelyn.


Frank Fairwell is not altogether a good man. He seems to have lost a bit of his

I had the opportunity to read an early edition of Orion's Kiss by Claire Luana. This novel was phenomenal. I cannot wait to read the other stories in this set.

This specific story focuses on Mer and her curse. She is reincarnated time and time again, and her sisters...always murdered. This is a standalone novel from Claire and this novel is intense but with so much sarcasm and wit.

Mer is a one of the main characters, and she is incredibly strong and stubborn. Ryan is another of the main protago

This review will be updated as I read through each story. Final overall star grade will be reserved until I finish all of them. Stories completed: 2/24

This collection of urban fantasy, paranormal romance and dystopian novels from various indie authors has been something I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced in late 2018, and at only a buck, it's a very great value. I’ve been looking forward to contributions by Claire Luana and Nina Walker the most, as I’ve read and loved their prev
The book that I read and reviewed, first in a series, is part of a boxed set containing a vast number of books that will be released sometime in May.

The boxed set is called Cursed Lands: A Limited Edition Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, and Dystopian Collection. The book I read among the set was The Shadow Games by Alison Ingleby.

First of all, please excuse any typos in this review. I just got my wisdom teeth out and I still feel a little tired and woozy.
Second of all... I loved this book. Th

My rating is for the amazing Emma Hamm's lovely book, Cirque de la Lune.

I was fortunate enough to read the arc of this magical and utterly heartwarming beauty.

Let me tell you I couldn't put it down and finished it in just 3 hours.

Where to start???

The setting of this gorgeousness was absolutely enchanting. The World War is over and the world is trying to pick up its broken pieces. People survived the war and life supposedly is coming to its regular course. In the midst of the gray reality, Cirqu

The Shadow Games by Alison Ingleby Spoiler Free Review.

*I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for a free and honest review.*

This story is a part of the Cursed Lands fantasy collection. I went in a little blind on this one. I didn't really know what to expect. All i knew was that the first line of the blurb hooked me! And I'm so glad I dove into it blind, because, I absolutely LOVED it! This had me addicted!

I gave this a 4.5 outof five stars. The writing was fantastic. The world and story wa

I had the pleasure of reading Lone Survivor from this amazing box set. This is an excellent story about Sadie and her friends trying to survive in a strange environment where they have been raised. This is an edge of your seat story that won't let you go until the end, and then you are left with more questions and wondering how much longer until the next one comes out. This has great characters and a great story.

I had the chance to read Cirque De La Lune by Emma Hamm. Here is my review:

A beaten man. A woman made of fire. A circus full of magic.

Cirque de la Lune is an exquisite novella. The story of love and triumph, trials and hardships of these characters was a delight to read. There are small surprises packed into such a small space, and my only complaint is that I needed more!!

I fervently recommend this to any lover of magic and romance.

Leaving my review for lone survivor by Jenna lee

Love the suspense of the unknown with this book, you never know what is around the corner. Leaves you wanting more
Jenny Davis
Basing my review on Jenna Lee's story, Lone Survivor. 🙂

I loved it. Her story is packed full of suspense, action, a little romance.. Just when you think you have it figured out, it gives a twist & keeps you on your toes.

The ending left me with so many unanswered questions, so please hurry with the next addition!!

I have read a few of the books in this set so far and I'm loving it!! Crimson Mage by Dorothy Dreyer, Dead Silence by K.G. Reuss, Shades of Human by J.L. Myers, and Behind Glass by Elle Scott are four of the epic stories included in this boxed set. Dead Silence is about a girl who can't tell the difference between reality or what's in her mind. A supernatural/psychological thriller. She's losing it, and she's not sure she can trust the world around her. There are things in the shadows trying to ...more

I can't wait to read this entire collection! What's better than Fae, Mermaids, Angels, Demons, and so much more in the dark and mysterious Cursed Lands?
Have you got your copy yet? It's only 99 cents for 22 novels!!!

I just finished BEHIND GLASS by the oh so talented Elle Scott. This is but one of the novels in this exciting boxset. So far I've loved everything I've read by this author. Imagine having no memory prior to age 12. Then every night at the same time without fail your parents drill you regarding said missing memories. What's the point of all this when Eden can't recall anything! Ok do that's not quite true. She remembers the eyes of a boy behind glass filled with pain. Somehow she just knows he's ...more

Crimson Mage by Dorothy Dreyer is Book 1 in her new Empire of the Lotus Series, and is a part of the Cursed Lands Anthology. I was given the opportunity to read an advance copy of this story. This review is for Dorothy Dreyer’s Crimson Mage only, at this time.

Wow! Where do I start? This is my first exposure to Dorothy Dreyer’s work, but I want more! So much more!

This is a review for "Among Shadows"

I absolutely loved Nina Walker's Color Alchemist series, and the prequel "Among Shadows" didn't
disappoint. It tells the story of Tristan, a young man with anger issues who is just trying to find his way in a dystopian society with too many rules and too many secrets. Tristian finds himself face to face with powerful color magic, and a young girl who can control the most dangerous magic of all -- red magic. It's our first glimpse of Frankie, who becomes an imp

Cirque De La Lune by Emma Hamm

Rated 3.5 Stars

Cirque De La Lune is an intriguing tale about a group of outcasts in a traveling circus. I found the world it was set in very interesting as well as the characters but there were a few inconsistencies and repetition that kept drawing me out of the story. Other than that I thought it was a solid start to a new series that I'm interested in seeing where the author takes it.

Char Webster's Stolen Magic was just great. I went in a little teary eyed because I loved the original story In Stubborn Souls and I knew parts would be taken out. But the added parts make this a whole new book I loved the newer magic system a lot and I loved getting to read these characters in a whole new light i can't wait to read more in this mystic series

Cirque de la Lune by Emma Hamm
Loved this story!! First venture into dark gothic circus storyline and I loved it. There was some hint to a worldwide war/catastrophe wich I look forward to reading more about.
Frank had such a good heart and the care that he took to respect Evie, not only her but the rest of the circus crew. The story left you wanting more...I especially want to know Bookers storyline!

I read Shades of Human by J.L. Myers from this boxset and it was amazing! The characters were quick-witted and entertaining.The plot moved at a good pace and that cliffhanger! I can't wait to dig into the rest of the stories in this book, and I really can't wait for the sequel to Shades of Human!

I read the story by Emma Hamm, Cirque De La Lune.

This was a mysterious story about the secrets behind a circus, and they were intersting to find out. I liked the romance, that it bettered both Evelyn and Frank. My favorite part was the family the circus had become, how they all looked out for each other. It began with some action, and ended on a happy note.
