Bitten By Books review of Louise Cooper's Star Ascendant: Book One in the Star Shadow Trilogy

MarnieCollette gave this novel 4.5 Tombstones.

"Star Ascendant is one of those books that you need to read every single word without distraction or you might miss a critical element...I thoroughly enjoyed this book...The plot of this novel is complex with several individual stories unfolding simultaneously.

If you are looking for a story that is simple and all tied up in a nice bow, Star Ascendant is not for you; however, if you want a read that draws you into a complex world wrought with political and religious intrigue, pick up Star Ascendant and you won’t be disappointed...Overall, I found this to be a thoroughly enjoying book that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and I can’t wait to read the next one, Eclipse."

Bitten By Books review of Louise Cooper's Eclipse: Book Two in the Star Shadow Trilogy

MarnieCollette gave Louise's sequel 4 Tombstones.

"Once again, Louise Cooper has weaved a world that is complex and vivid. A world were Chaos rules.

It is an excellent continuation of the story that Ms. Cooper has begun in her first novel. I really appreciated her development of Andraia and Kaldar...I am interested to see how Ms. Cooper brings the story to its grand ending in the last book of the trilogy. I will admit I am intrigued to see how this all ends."

Night Owl Reviews review of Kelley Heckart's Cat's Curse: Book 1 - Dark Goddess Trilogy


Dreamweaver gave Kelley's gripping novel 4.5 Stars and called it a Reviewer Top Pick! Great job!

"This amazing story is very refreshing in the current romance genre.

The storyline had a bunch of twists and turns that kept my attention and intrigued me with anticipation. I so wanted to know the outcome of this unlikely romance. Many interesting characters and love triangles make for a refreshing story that is not as neatly tied up as most romance novels of today, but has managed to make me a fan of the author’s style. I am eagerly looking forward to reading the next book (Beltaine’s Song), Book Two in the Dark Goddess Trilogy, as I have become addicted to the strength, courage and real human facets of the characters in this saga."

Long and Short Romance Reviews review of Janis Susan May's The Fair Amazon

Camellia gave this historical romance novel 4 Books.

"Janis Susan May’s delightful handling of Regency’s unique language and phraseology makes THE FAIR AMAZON sparkle. With intrigue, suspense, and humor, she slips the reader into that time in English history when dress, social functions, to see and be seen with the “right” people were of the utmost importance.

Ms. May’s tangling and then untangling the plot makes a tantalizing tale that keeps a grip on the reader to the very last page.

Regency readers will recognize the elements often used for story set in that time, but Georgina Montcalm’s story has its own special twists and turns that make it hum with undercurrents and unrequited emotions that are captivating."

Zollyanna gave this second Bad-Ass Faeries anthology collection 4.75 Stars and called it a Reviewer Top Pick! Awesome!

"Bad-Ass Faeries 2 gives us another 20 tales of faeries your mother wouldn’t want you to hang around or love. The Authors for the sequel of Bad-Ass Faeries 1 give us all the bad we can handle and then some. It was as much if not more as enjoyable a read as its predecessor, and I will enjoy reading any other books that come across from these authors."

Witty, original and unexpected, this is a delightful read. This author's style is both clear and readable.
