The Ghosts of Craven Manor

Joseph Daniels

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

If you’ve never read a Choose Your Own Adventure book, definitely check out Joseph Daniels’ The Ghosts of Craven Manor!  Daniels combines two of my favorite things, video games and books, into one awesome tale.  You play as Dave Ingram, a man who must investigate the haunting of Craven Manor in order to save his fiancé, a journey that’ll even take him through time.  The mechanics seemed daunting at first but you quickly get used to them and they really added to the fun of the story.  Daniels really created something special that I hope more people will check out!

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Andrew Williams spins a fascinating and complicated web in Arcadia’s Children: Samantha’s Revenge.  Ex soldier Tarmy gets wrapped up in a plot that can destabilize the known galaxy if he doesn’t stop it.  Williams’ world is vivid and unique, filled with strange creatures and interesting characters.  If you love intrigue that goes with space operas like The Expanse, definitely check out Arcadia’s Children!

Aurelie: Gates of Immortality

Christine Duts

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

I’ve always loved the idea of a war between vampires and werewolves, so Christine Duts’ Aurelie: Gates of Immortality really hit the spot for me.  When someone tries to assassinate the head vampire, Aurelie (also a vampire) must investigate to prevent an all out massacre.  It’s an age old tale told in a fresh way through Duts’ fast-flowing writing and enjoyable characters.  This one’s perfect for those of you that need that supernatural fix!

The Illusion of Gravity

John Dyer

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

If you like hard sci fi intermixed with great action and intrigue, look no further than John Dyer’s The Illusion of Gravity!  When physicist Rivan Saraf discovers a way to manipulate physics and save his people from a dying star, he finds himself on the hit list of the ruthless Vanya.  This book has a great deal of depth, something I personally appreciated, and had a great plot!  This one’s perfect for those of you who enjoy sci fi with substance!

Shadowsoul

J.D. Evergreen

Rating: 4 Shrimps!

Claire must overcome impossible odds and uncover her mysterious past in J.D. Evergreen’s Shadowsoul.  Having been exiled to a dark marsh world by an evil sorcerer with nothing but a strange necklace, Claire makes her journey to escape, one fraught with danger and monsters.  I loved Evergreen’s world building and the powerful use of atmospheric mood in this story.  Check it out if you love a good dive into a strange fantasy realm!

A Tangled Web

A. Claire Everward

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

People get married for all sorts of reasons.  In A. Claire Everward’s A Tangled Web, those reasons are entirely selfish.  Tess Andrews is running from her past and looking for a security blanket.  Ian Blackwell is looking to get a cloud of acidic gossipers off his back.  But when an enemy emerges to destroy them both, they are forced to band together.  It’s a snappy, twisting tale full of intrigue and surprises and a satisfying journey from the characters.  I didn’t know romantic suspense was a thing but A Tangled Web has me addicted to it now!

One Stolen Kiss

Anna Faversham

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Anna Faversham spools together five short stories that will make your heart melt in One Stolen Kiss.  Each story follows its own characters and touches on everything from angels (I love the cat one) to homelessness.  This collection is a quick read and touching to its core.  It’s great for anyone looking for a good tear jerker!

Aaron and Me, Works in Progress

Debralynn Fein

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Kim Segal gets delivered a major gut punch in Debralynn Fein’s Aaron and Me, Works in Progress.  Fein powerfully details the struggle Kim goes through as her baby son is diagnosed with a terrible disease and the ripple effect fallout from that.  The writing is strong and the pain and triumphs are palpable making this one a real heart-wrenching but meaningful experience!

Forbidden Colours

Nicole Fitton

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Nicole Fitton spins a wild conspiracy thriller in Forbidden Colours!  When a pharmaceutical company creates a drug that can cure amnesia and maybe even Alzheimer’s, everything seems great, that is until company employee Midori Yates and Dr. Nick Campbell discover that not everything is as it seems.  Now Midori and Nick find themselves running for their lives as they desperately search for the truth.  Forbidden Colours was exciting and tense, and I really liked Midori and Nick and the growing bond between them.  This one’s perfect for any fans of The Firm or The Island out there!
