J.A. Saare review of Sarah-Jane Lehoux's Theif

J.A. gave Sarah-Jane's novel 5 stars and wrote this on Goodreads:

"Sarah-Jane Lehoux's debut novel, Thief, is a book that stands out in a lot of ways...The supporting cast is wonderfully developed, and I enjoyed learning about the various races, their cultures, and the differences between them. The dark undertone of the work is also mesmerizing and is present from start to finish...If you're looking for a book that is outside the norm, definitely give Thief a try. I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment."

Literary Nymphs review of Elaine Corvidae's Daughter of Snow: Book Four in the Shadow Fae Series

Goddess Minx gave this fantasy novel 4 Nymphs.

"Ms. Corvidae continues to wow me with her storytelling and this tale is just as great as the first three. The creative plotting is so complicated that I had to pay close attention, so as not to miss what was going on in each scene. She has become a favorite author, and I am looking forward to reading other books by her. Please tell me this is not the last book in the Shadow Fae series because it would leave me wondering too much about some of the characters whose stories needed to be told."

Literary Nymphs review of Elaine Corvidae's The Sundered Stone: Book Three in the Shadow Fae Trilogy

Goddess Minx gave Book Three in the Shadow Fae Trilogy 4 Nymphs.

"When I started reading this story, I thought it would begin telling of other main characters but was pleasantly surprised how it unfolded. The mere fact that it would take Mina, Duncan, Alex, Pook and other Fae to cooperated together to accomplish a common goal for peace, spoke volumes for me...you will not be disappointed reading this Shadow Fae series."

Literary Nymphs review of Elaine Corvidae's Prince of Ash: Book Two in the Shadow Fae Trilogy

Goddess Minx gave the second book in this trilogy 4 Nymphs.

"Prince of Ash starts out at a quick pace and never really slows down...Ms. Corvidae has created a wonderful story of a way of life for street urchins, who are determined to survive every obstacle they are confronted with...There (are) a lot of revelations revealed throughout the story, and it certainly kept my attention focused on what would happen next. This is a great story and should be read in order of the books published to understand what is going on with the characters."

Literary Nymphs review of Maxine Isackson's Come Green Grass

Rose Nymph gave this western historical 4.5 Nymphs.

"Come Green Grass is the prequel to Maxine Isackson's fantastic novel Prairie Wind and serves as Leah's introduction to ranch life. Set in 1894, the descriptive, detailed language transported me back to a world that, at times, seemed genteel and romantic, yet extremely stark and harsh at others...The knowledge and research into the period is a credit to the author...If you like a sweeping, dramatic tale with amazing characters and a plot that has plenty of twists and turns, I highly recommend Come Green Grass."

Kirkus Reviews review of Resa Nelson's Our Lady of the Absolute

The reviewer wrote:

"The author presents a plausible society that has grown out of ancient Egypt and developed into a vaguely repressive police state that runs the White Walled City at the heart of the Black Land...(the author has the) ability to evoke all the contradictory atmospheres of her setting, a place where modern-day technology mingles easily with the superstitions of a vanished world...this long, ambitious book is an elaborate and satisfying narrative, a must for devotees of ancient Egypt."

Aurora Reviews review of Elisabeth and Ian Arbuckle's

Aloe gave this science fiction fantasy tale 4 Suns.

"The main reason I chose to read this book was because it was about dragons. Dragons are generally magical, powerful beings that live for so many years they view life much differently than a human does. The dragons in this book did not disappoint me. The author does a good job of expressing the emotions of the different characters and describing the different worlds they populate...Underlying this story is the dragon's legend about how they will get their fire back. As this segment of the story ends, you can tell that there will be a sequel to this book continuing the story. I'm looknig forward to reading that one also. Marisol and her dragon friend still have several challenges to conquer."

The Romance Studio review of Adrienne Jones' The Hoax

Dee Dailey gave this mystery novel 3 Hearts.

"Adrienne Jones tells a science fiction version of a mystery that has all sorts of twists and turns...The three main characters are surrounded by a complex supporting cast.
