Then a woman's body is found, branded with the ritual Moretti tattoo. Someone knows who Lara is…and exactly how to make her pay


This is one of those book, which sucks you in from the very first page, and you can’t stop until it’s through. It’s a very well written Novella; characters are likeable as well as believable.  I really enjoyed the flow and pace of the story line, which you can tell was well thought out and thoroughly projected onto the pages.

I didn’t find any grammatical or punctuation errors, which not finding any enhances the overall flow and read of the book.


Would I recommend this book to others? Yes

Would I read other books by this Author? Yes

Is this book a Novel or Novella? Novella, with continuing story line.

Is this book priced correctly? Yes I feel the price is very fare for a Novella.

A Beautiful Blue Death

Review copy provided via NetGallery in exchange for an honest review

Summary: A Beautiful Blue Death

On any given day in London, all Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, wants to do is relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist another chance to unravel a mystery, even if it means trudging through the snow to her townhouse next door.
One of Jane’s former servants, Prudence Smith, is dead – an apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder, by a rare and deadly poison. The house where the girl worked is full of suspects, and though Prudence dabbled with the hearts of more than a few men, Lenox is baffled by an elusive lack of motive in the girl’s death. When another body turns up during the London season’s most fashionable ball, Lenox must untangle a web of loyalties and animosities. Was it jealousy that killed Prudence? Or was it something else entirely, something that Lenox alone can uncover before the killer strikes again – disturbingly close to home?


I have to start out saying over all this is a well written story, with characters, whom you fall in love with. Charles is very believable as is Lady Jane and many other characters, which become an intricate part of the plot. The story flow is nicely paced and you don’t feel anything is left out.

Here’s the problem this story is supposed to take place in the 1800’s during the Victorian era, but the language used isn’t even Queen’s English its American English, which takes away from the story.  


Would I recommend this book to others? NO

Would I read other books by this author? Yes as long as they don’t take place in a different era or country.  I like his over all style and flow of the plot line.

Is this a Novel or Novella? Novel

Is this book priced correctly? Over priced for paperback and ebook…… I’m a budget buyer and I wouldn’t have paid these prices.

Prince: Legacy of Darkness

Review copy provided via NetGallery in exchange for an honest review

Summary: Prince: Legacy of Darkness

Before earth there was light.

Before light there was darkness.

Join the world's first vampire, as he narrates a tale that starts before the universe was created, and into a future that might bring forth the end of days.

Prince: Legacy of Darkness is a fast-paced thriller that will leave readers spellbound to a world filled with vampires, witches, werewolves, dragons, angels and demons in a freshly imagined beginning to a story never told. A classic in the making!


This book is a DNF, I couldn’t connect with the story line, which I find weird since this is my favorite genre. I’ve spent eight days trying to connect with this book, but couldn’t even get past the first chapter.


Would you recommend this book to others? NO, because if I couldn’t connect with it I doubt any of my friends could.

Would I read other books by this author? Unsure

Is this book a novel or novella? Nice length Novel

Is this book priced correctly? Way over priced I’d never pay that kind of money for a paperback book.
