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

Counting the days until this boxed set comes out! I can't wait to read these new stories from some of my favourite dystopian and fantasy authors. :-)

And, you can get all the books for just 99c at the moment, it's a total bargain!

Some of my favorite fantasy and dystopian authors are featured in this set! 22 books for a buck is a killer deal for so much great content! I can't wait to read about the different cursed lands these authors have come up with!
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: 1/24

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

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

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.

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 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

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

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.

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.
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!!

This review is for Emma Hamm's Cirque de la Lune which I received as an ARC. And wow! I fell in love with the characters immediately. The story grabs you from the first page and I literally couldn't put it down. If the rest of the stories in this collection are like this one it will be an amazing read.

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 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.

Oh my the Crimson Mage by Dorothy Dreyer in this great collection is fabulous. It has mystery, suspense, drama and times of action that draws you in and has you glued to your seat. It is extremely well written and the characters are beautifully developed. They have great personalities that are so life like. It is a quick read but extremely good. It is one that is definitely worth reading and doesn’t disappoint.

A review based on Cirque de la Lune by Emma Hamm , kindly provided as an ARC

As far as I understand it, this is a collection of really short stories. After one novel I expect the collection to be like a degustation menu of various authors. Maybe it is quite obvious, but I was a tiny bit disappointed by the length of the story I read, because I was really enjoying it.

Emma's story is about a group of outcasts or rather people who are too different to be accepted by society. The characters are pro

I received an e-ARC of one of the novellas from author Emma Hamm in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

The story by Emma Hamm made think highly of The Greatest Showman! But without the dancing and the swooning. It's a story of love, hidden abilities, beauty, and family. I am seriously wondering if this lovely one will become later a full series! Emma Hamm's story follows a disgraced doctor, who broke up with his fiance and he was beaten to death. Then he is

A wonderful story with great characters and wonderful world build. I can not imagine having as much imaginations as Ella Scott to write such a good book. Behind Glass is just one out of other books in Cursed Lands. I think it would be wise to go get you a copy now as it is limited and you don't want to miss any of these stories.
