Read-along & Giveaway: Burned by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY

    I feel like every great series has that book where the s**t hits the fan and it feels like nothing can go right for the hero.  Burned is that book in the Alex Verus series.  In sum, Alex gets his burn notice from the Council of Mages in an emergency session led by […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Hidden by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY #JIAM

  Hidden is the fifth book in the Alex Verus Series.  So far this series has been getting better and better with each installment and while I did enjoy Hidden quite a bit it wasn’t my favorite book of the series so far, Chosen still holds that space but it is another really good story […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Chosen by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY @CarolesLife

  Chosen was another great installment in the Alex Verus Series.  This is a series that really does need to be read in order since each book builds on the previous installments.  I think I am liking each book in the series a little more as I work my way through the series and I […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Taken by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio  ‏#Read-along #GIVEAWAY

    The Alex Verus Series is really heating up and each book seems to be getting better.  In Taken, book three, Alex and his trusty apprentice, Luna, set out to solve the mystery of missing apprentices, a delicate task full of political pitfalls and powerful magic.  The actual ‘who dunnit’ was a little obvious […]

      This is a new novel featuring Alex Verus and his friend Luna, and I admit that I was curious to discover their new adventure! Alex has returned to the normal course of his life, or at least that’s what he thought until that someone tries to kill him, a woman comes to […]

Read-along & Giveaway: Alex Verus series by Benedict Jacka @BenedictJacka ‏ @AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub @orbitbooks @TantorAudio ‏ #Read-along

  I chose this series because it is my favorite genre – urban fantasy and I have not read it. I wanted a new-to-me series with 8-12 books. These are available at both of my libraries, in both ebook and audio formats. They are also rather reasonable to purchase in either format.  Some of the […]

Joint Review:  Magic Triumphs by Ilona Andrews  @ilona_andrews ‏@GordonSm3 @reneeraudman ‏@AceRocBooks @BerkleyPub

Book 10: Magic Triumphs Robin and I both read Magic Triumphs and also listened to the audio version. Robin was on the beta team. I was fortunate to get an eARC and we both received the audio for review. It is hard to do such an amazing book justice.   I’ve said many times how it […]
