I read Stephen by Amy Cross in one sitting!

Blurb- Fresh from the convent, Beryl Seaton accepts a position as governess for the Brooks family. When she arrives at the family’s remote house, however, she discovers that a terrible secret is waiting for her in the nursery.

From the author of Asylum and The Farm, Stephen is a horror novel about a young woman who finds herself torn between two worlds. Desperate to help her employers in their hour of need, she nevertheless struggles to look after their son.

What happened to Stephen, to leave him the way he is? What happened to the previous governess at Grangehurst? And what causes the sobbing sound that seem to drift through an empty room?

By the time she uncovers the awful truth about the family, and about little Stephen, it might be too late for Beryl to ever leave.

#AmazonReview #NewRelease-

The writing was fluid and lyrical for me. The description of Adamas’ elemental abilities were surprising beautiful which is why I found it both fluid and lyrical. I love stories involving nature, and it is one of its primary focus in this story I thought.
This was such a wonderful journey as a reader.

This was a very enjoyable read, and I will be reading this many more time again in the future.

I read “Little” (Trenton Security Book 2) by J.M. Dabney

As I read Little’s story, I kept having this fantasy where I hop into the page and hug him so tight and then bring him home so I was glad that Poe hugged him as I couldn’t hop in. Little is the epitome of someone who suffers from complex traumas. My heart bled for him and I kept getting tearful for him so I kept cheering for Poe that he loved sweet Little. Great dynamics in a great story. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story!!!

#REVIEW– A love story that will last forever!!!

#NewRelease #Paranormal #Romance $1.99

Personally I love mythology, Greek and Roman, and this novel has all the elements to please mortals. Yet, it was more than that, it was a story of redemption and love. The author using mythological creatures creates a tale that you wish it never ends. The demigods who are full of themselves spread pain and suffering to humans when they dare to define them and chaos is born. Adamas is a demigod who lets anger destroy his inner peace and stability and travels aimlessly throughout the centuries. He is incapable of understanding his purpose and he hurts himself and others until he meets Phoebe. In that moment of clarity Adamas finds himself and finally opens his heart to the woman who accepts him. This is where everything changes and the novel becomes, with glorified details, a story of love that will shatter all your emotions. Clearly, the author knows how to build her tale and shape our preconceived notions. Bravo!!!


The Accidental Master series by M. A. Innes

Reviews For Those Who Love A Good Book


I have been a big fan of this author for s long time and yet this past year I’ve become an even bigger fan. That has to do with the characters she creates. Each story is a good read but it’s his well detailed and engaging she makes all the characters in each book. We get to know them from the first book and by the last we never want them to leave. Another thing that makes me love M. A. Innes’s work so much is the cameos characters from other stories play in them. I truly think that has a lot to do with how many and how loyal her fans are. We fall in love with the guys and girls and they become almost family to us. There was one exception in this series compared to the author’s other books. I don’t normally have a character I…

5 stars from Mallory A. Haws: The Haunted Reading Room Reviews

moonlight-house book cover
For me the strength of this supernatural horror lay in the characters as much as in the haunting, which is implacable and quite scary. The characters, of two different eras, are well-developed and the authors do well at drawing out the hidden issues and revealing them transposed against the era’s cultural mores.
The earlier period (1954) reminded me (in characters and plotting and setting) of the Gothic suspense I devoured as a child antiquities ago.
