Cornucopia of YA ~ Review of Sweet Evil

Maid of Tarts

Review of

Sweet Evil

by Wendy Higgins

Let me start out by saying this book might not be appropriate for younger YA readers as it touches on the topics of alcohol, drugs, and sex.  Now that I have said that I will also say that I completely enjoyed this book.  It caught my attention and imagination from beginning.  Wendy Higgins built a wonderful world of angels and demons and I’m glad I entered it.

Win a copy of one of my fav books this year- Blade Song + My Review

I read Blade Song one afternoon last week and didn’t want the book to end. It’s that good. I love urban fantasy, worlds that are recognizable but have fantasy elements like magic, shape changers and vampires to name a few… plus desserts with zero calories (I made that up :p I would totally pack up and move to a fantasy world where that was true! 🙂 )


This book was written by one of my long time fav authors Shiloh Walker. She writes delicious contemporary and paranormal romance including The Hunter’s series and now she’s adding to her resume  writing under the pseudonym of J.C. Daniels. The books written under the J.C. Daniels name will be urban fantasy and occasionally erotic romance titles. Her first urban fantasy title is Blade Song and the heroine started out in a short story you can read here it’s called A Stroke of Dumb Luck and Kit just wouldn’t stop telling her story to Shiloh, sooo she had to write more. Yay!  I’m all for it! <g> More Shiloh to love!
