Shadows Through the Fog by Amanda Leanne

Shadows are often benign, nothing to truly fear, and yet our minds create from them. We see them twist and form into something sinister, something eerie, something that makes our skin crawl or our heart race. As the fog manipulates the landscape, so does it change the shadows. With our minds, we further pull from the blurry images and a tale is formed. From vengeful women to those that welcome death to haunting moments, these stories are a mixed bag of random dark tales from the mind of Amanda Leanne. Written over the past decade, this is a small compilation of stories pulled from the shadows in the fog.

This collection of dark and eerie stories contains eleven tales to wet your appetite. The Other side of the Mirror and Something’s Changed were certainly my favourites. I could easily see these being developed into fuller stories. I’m sure each reader will find something to appreciate and their own favourites. I especially liked that each story brought a new voice and direction with it. I would recommend this to all readers who enjoy dipping into dark tales, like me! ~~ review by Reader4life, on Amazon

The Lost Witch (The Lost Universe Trilogy Book 1)

Interesting plot with just enough description to beautifully paint the plot and characters without overly weighing down the story with excessive details. The writing flow is like gliding through the air. This author has created a story line like a chocolate bar in three pieces. The first third is wonderfully yummy and you can’t wait to get to the second portion, yet you want to savor every bite. Looking forward to the next book! ~ Kindle Customer review

The Guardian Series by Mandie Stevens (books 1-3)

 

“This page-turner breathes fresh new life into paranormal reads, with a fabulous melding of the angel versus demon and supernatural beings genres.” – Mama’s Got Flair
Books 1 – 3 of The Guardian series

Caelum:
Eva doesn’t claim to be a good guardian angel, but she tries. After she loses two charges, the Powers That Be begin to doubt her abilities. To redeem herself, Eva sets out to rescue Elsie, granddaughter of the former king of the Fae. A demon has kidnapped Elsie to complete an ancient ritual that will allow him to slip through the veil between Earth and Hell during the Sturgeon moon.
Thomas, an angel liaison, finally lands his first mission. But when he’s paired with the angel responsible for his uncle’s death, he has to put aside their differences to get the job done. With unlikely friends in tow, Eva and Thomas are in a race against time. Save Elsie, save the world—oh, and save Eva’s job.

Ethereal:
Eva and Thomas are getting on each others’ nerves. The two angels need a break, badly, but being bound to each other by magic means no separate vacations. To make things worse, when Thomas is charmed by a Succubus, their powers are compromised, making them a target for the local demonic population in Italy.
When their assignment to save a soul from Hell brings them face-to-face with someone from Thomas’ past, Eva is confronted with a choice: complete the mission and safe-guard their charge, or save her partner, the one being with whom she’s ever truly connected.

Curse of the Tolomato Cemetery :
Eva and Thomas are used to dealing with things that go bump in the night, but on an unexpected day off, the last thing they expect to encounter are vampire pirates–and Thomas’ old flame. When the vampires capture that ex-lover, the two must brave a haunted cemetery to stop the quest and save the day.

This book is 18+ due to language and suggested sex.

The Weeping Bridge by Adria Waters

 

“The Weeping Bridge” is a good start to what appears to be an interesting YA paranormal series. This novel does not rush to the “good” part, in this case, the creepy, mysterious, and often tender world of ghosts. Instead, “Bridge” takes the time to develop likeable characters, and grow relationships in such a way to render the plot more plausible. There are many loose ends left hanging and connections left unmade, ensuring plenty of opportunity for future installments in the series. It’s definitely girl’s YA fiction, a little escapist, but with strong pathos.

Recommended for ghost lovers, series readers, and sensitive souls. ~ JD Stone , Amazon Review
