Gabe is in Samir’s clutches and Liv has no earthly idea how to find him.

She could kill Samir, but that’s only if she gets close enough to him and she can’t freaking do magic.

But, Gabe can escape, right?

Sure.

Except, Samir finds a way to threaten Liv from afar and now Gabe has to do everything Samir asks him to. Including killing goddesses.

Blackheath by Gabriella Lepore | BOOK REVIEW

BLACKHEATH Ebook cover (12.09.2016)

Quid pro quo: An early copy of this book was sent to me for free by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The first book I read written by Gabriella Lepore is The Witches of the Glass Castle. I enjoyed reading that and was looking forward to reading its second book. I didn’t have any expectations from her back then. This time, I was apprehensive about reading another one of her books because I enjoyed TWotGC, I hoped this one won’t fail me.

Anatomy of a Host by Elizabetta Holcomb | BOOK REVIEW

Quid pro quo: An early copy of this book was sent to me for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wishful thinking. I wished this novella was a dossier of sort documenting all current hosts under the Amalgam. Their names, the type of host, their special abilities (if they have it), their provenance, etc. And it may even have documentation on the current guardians as well.

The Smoking Lamp by Kimberly Loth | BOOK REVIEW

I cannot remember how I found Kimberly Loth but I thank the Egyptians gods because I did. For obvious reasons, I check the BOOKS tab of every author’s website I visit. How do I decide if I will try and read an author’s work? Guilty as charged, I look at their book covers. That’s what they are for, right? I mean, come on, look at that cover. I was torn between yes and no but I’m more inclined towards yes-try-and-read-her-book option. She has free books available, I got them of course. But I didn’t read them, they just sat there as part of my never-ending TBR pile. Before I left her website, I signed up for her newsletter. I want a reminder to check her books out and receiving a newsletter is as good as any notification I could set up.

The Librarian by Christy Sloat

The LibrarianThe Librarian by Christy Sloat

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

***Christy Sloat gave me an advance copy of her book in exchange of my honest review.***

I have been watching The Flash and as I am writing this review, I have this sudden realization that the ending of this story is similar to the concept of that TV series. I did not foresee that the last parts of this book will end like that. It was a good surprise. I enjoyed reading those last pages.

Weeks after I read this book, I received a free e-copy of King (Brotherhood Bachelors #1) by Kendra Little from BookBub. Honestly, for some time I had to re-read The Librarian because I got confused after reading both books. They have almost a similar plot. Although, King is a contemporary romance while The Librarian is a historical/time-travel romance.

For a 230-page book, I feel that it could have been better if there were a hundred more pages. It lacked character developments and is highly plot-driven in my opinion. I have no complains of how the plot progressed but there was little background story given for most of the characters.

Overall, the reading experience is good and it is entertaining. It is a unique story but still feels familiar. I recommend it more to time-travel readers than to historical romance readers.
