I recently entered the International Reader's Choice Book Awards 2015 competition and I just got back a 5 star rating from them for the book I submitted, Black Moon. I am thrilled by the recognition and can't wait to see how the book does at the end of the contest.




The Witch With No Name

I am such a huge fan of Kim Harrison's Hollows series that I hated it when The Witch With No Name became available because I knew it was the end. This is such an inventive, exciting, and fun series. The Witch With No Name was an absolutely fantastic conclusion to the series. It brought all of the elements together and by the end of the story she tied all the loose ends. I would definitely recommend anyone who's a Hollows series fan or who loves urban fantasy. If you haven't read her other books, I would encourage you to start from the beginning.

Her story is rich with supernatural characters including demons, the elves, witches, and gargoyles. The mystics were another fantasy element that I found so intriguing and it was suspenseful because you never knew what they were going to do or what the outcome would be. There were so many surprising plot twists, so much adventure, and there was romance.

I won't say any more because I don't want to give away any details to anyone who hasn't yet read the book.
