You guys- It’s release day, and I have it in my hot little hands!!! I’m so excited!!!!
I’ll be reading it this week, but I know I’ll be where I don’t have wi-fi this weekend. If I don’t get the review up before I leave, I’ll post when I return home😊😊
In case you need a reminder, here’s the link to my first look post about this gem:
Go, get, enjoy!!!
Author: Lydia Kang
Genre: Historical Fiction
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Cora Lee was born in the 19th century, and floats between the upper crust and the slums and graveyards in New York. She makes her living as a resurrectionist, meaning that she spends her nights in the graveyards (dressed as her “twin” brother) procuring freshly dead bodies with interesting afflictions for anatomists. They pay her incredibly well for doing this job. The job also allows her to stay a step ahead of those that are looking for her. She is hunted for being one of those with an interesting affliction- Cora was born with two hearts. Now there are murders happening closer and closer to her, and she doesn’t know who she can trust, because she is being hunted down by someone who wants her before she dies her natural death.
This new release from Lydia Kang was phenomenal! It was full of everything that I hoped that it would have from the description: action packed, science, medicine, history, some romance (but not enough to overtake the story), a twisty thriller, and a wonderfully strong female lead. The writing was beautiful and flowed well. The characters were very well fleshed out, and showed great growth throughout the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
It’s out today!!!
The cover for Circle of Shadows (the amazing Evelyn Skye’s newest work- due out in January) got a bit of a makeover! I think that the subtle changes made it even more beautiful! What do you think?
Again, here’s the GR link if you’d like to read up on the new work:

Series: Stone Sentries
Larissa, a Boston police officer, had an unfortunate encounter with some demons while on patrol. Now, she is left with more questions than answers and a friend who is in an incubus-induced coma. During the attack, Larissa was able to fight off the demons and managed to somehow shoot energy at them with her eyes. Her gargoyle lover, Roman, believes that these “gifts” come from her being a witch. Larissa, however, knows nothing about this and wants answers. To make matters worse, she is now having a vision of another supernatural threat. Is this her imagination, or a vision of things to come?
This is the second book in the Stone Sentries Boston series, and it was as fantastic as the first. Roman and Larissa are a great pairing. As always, the character development is fantastic. I have really enjoyed some of the other elements that have been brought in to this series, as it has added nicely to the world building without feeling like we are just being given a supernatural soup (you know what I’m talking about!). These are quick, fun reads, so if you are in the mood for some PNR, I recommend giving them a try. There are definitely still some questions, so I am looking forward to seeing what happens in the next installment of Roman and Larissa’s story! Enjoy!!

Series: Underground Encounters
During the fire at Vamps, Nike was bitten by a vampire. In a fit of bloodlust, she did something that she is unable to forgive herself for. The love of her life, Michel, travelled to Europe in search of a cure for her to no avail. Growing weary of walking between two worlds, she must make a decision that will change the rest of her life. Meanwhile, her best friend Maya is preparing for the rest of her life, as well. She is planning her wedding, and desperately wants Nike to be her maid of honor. Nike, however, is cutting herself off from everyone (Maya included) after her act of bloodlust, and won’t return her calls. At the same time, Maya has decided to find out more about where she comes from and asks her adoptive parents for more information about her birth parents. She is shocked by what she finds when she goes seeking more information.
I was absolutely left with questions after Nike and Maya’s first books, and I am so happy to have this follow up to get some answers!! This new installment, in my opinion, has more twists than previous books and I loved it! Nike and Maya were two of my favorites in this series, so another book with them was right up my alley. Their characters were able to become more complex through this book, and I feel like Carlisle did a wonderful job of giving them even more depth. Where most of the books in this series can be read as standalones, I highly recommend that you read Smolder and Fire first so that you get the background on Nike and Maya. Go, read, enjoy!!!
I’m so sorry for the lack of posts recently, but there were some site issues followed by some personal issues (that I won’t bore you with) that led to me falling incredibly behind. However, there will be several posts going up beginning tomorrow evening, so keep your eyes open!
The amazing Lisa Carlisle has another new release out!!
