Genres: Adult, Dark, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: April 16, 2017 Pages: 465 Source: Publisher Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon I’ve read all the books in the Hades Hangmen series and enjoyed most of them. Each book gets better and this book is one of my favorites in the series. Even though Damnable Grace is part of a series, you can read this as a complete standalone. It will definitely be better if you read them in order since each story is interconnected. What is the story about? Even the broken, through love, can find grace. Sister Phebe has been groomed since childhood to please men sexually in New Zion. Since she is great at her job, she then becomes the Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion […]

Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy Standalone/Series: Series Published on: March 5, 2013 Pages: 514 Source: gifted Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon It has been a while since I read a great urban fantasy. I had been a contemporary romance reader for the past two years, therefore, reading a different genre that was a total opposite needed some getting used to. It took me a while to finish this book. The reasons for it are, first, it is a very long book (I am a slow reader), and, second is I needed the time to understand the world in this story, which was completely different than the one I used to. What is the story about? The story follows a young woman named Meg Corbyn who is on the run. She is a Cassandra Sangue, that is known […]
