Queen Victoria is celebrating her 175th year of her reign. Victorian England with a twist, the aristocracy has mutated. They are either vampires or werewolves. Besides the aristocracy there are humans and half-bloods. Those charged with guarding the aristocracies are half-bloods. Humans, half-bloods and the aristocracy do not exactly get along.

Queen of Tarts review of Hearts of Shadow by Kira Brady

Hearts of Shadow (Deadglass, #2)Queen of Tarts Review of

Hearts of Shadow

by Kira Brady

Hearts of Shadow is a story filled with danger and pain and loss… and through it all winds the strong ties of love. There is so much going on in this story! It’s a post apocalyptic battle to keep the world from going to the gods and demi-gods control. I love Kira Brady’s world building. She has created an alternate world, focusing on Seattle, with Babylonian and Norse mythology, dragons (!), a Native American shape-shifting race, magic and steampunk elements. Hearts of Shadows weaves all these cords together along with a passionate love story that sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go till the last page.

The Queen of Tarts review of The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance

The Peculiar Pets of Miss Pleasance (Blud, #1.6)Queen of Tarts Review of

The Peculiar Pets

of Miss Pleasance

by Delilah S. Dawson

I love the writing style of Delilah S. Dawson! I fell in love with it when I read Wicked As She Comes  last spring and with every book I’ve just fallen harder. I see her stories in living color. They read very visual and paint pictures in my imagination. The feelings and emotions she invokes can be beautiful, snarky, painful, sensual, scary and wicked… and all this just in a novella!

The Book Tart Episode 25~ Review of Tarnished by Karina Cooper

I am relatively new to steampunk fiction and I really enjoyed Karina Cooper’s Tarnished, book 1 in her St. Croix Chronicles. I just re-read it so I could vlog in my steampunk costume. 😀

I am on a trip right now so my setting is different (I’m in a hallway!) and I BROUGHT my costume with me to film this. Yep! lol I’m a dork. But I have an easier time chatting about a book than writing a review. 😛 I loved the adventures of Cherry St. Croix and I am so excited to read Gilded when I get home, cause I ordered the print copy! 😉

The sequel, Gilded is out now and the lovely Karina has given The Book Tart an excerpt! *kermit flail* Click HERE to read it and to enter my contest.

Then go get the books!

Excerpt from Gilded by Karina Cooper + Contest

gildedI am rather a bad procrastinator. Or, rather, I’m good at it. <g> I meant to contact Karina Cooper and tell her how excited I was for the release of Gilded, the 2nd book in her St. Croix Chronicles. I kept thinking I would get to it and I never did. Sooo, last week I sent her a quick little email and because she is completely awesomesauce she sent me an excerpt to post today on her book birthday. 😀

I also filmed a little vlog spazzing out about the first book, Tarnished. Click HERE

I am giving the first book in this series away. Rafflecopter at the bottom of the post.
