Book Review: The Prince of Mist

The Prince of Mist was absolutely fantastic. This book is a paranormal thriller set during WWII. A family moves to a town on the beach – one that has a history of a mysterious shipwreck.

I was definitely creep-ed out quite a bit reading this book and I loved the twists and turns this novel took. Definitely a thrilling read.  Max seems fearless to me. He dives headlong into the […]

Book Review: Sisters Red

Book Review: Sisters Red

Sisters Red is an interesting blend of a fairy tale and something completely new. While it is not a retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood tale, it has many of the plot details that readers may expect to find: red hooded cape, a grandma, werewolves, and a hatchet. But that is about where the similarities end. The novel is set in a very unique way. The world that the sisters, Scarlett and Rosie, live in is reminiscent of a classic fairy tale, yet on the fringes of that world is our society. In essence, there are two worlds that […]
