/ ARC Book Review / The Hunger / Alma Katsu /

Evil is invisible, and it is everywhere.

Tamsen Donner must be a witch. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the wagon train known as the Donner Party. Depleted rations, bitter quarrels, and the mysterious death of a little boy have driven the pioneers to the brink of madness. They cannot escape the feeling that someone–or something–is stalking them. Whether it was a curse from the beautiful Tamsen, the choice to follow a disastrous experimental route West, or just plain bad luck–the 90 men, women, and children of the Donner Party are at the brink of one of the deadliest and most disastrous western adventures in American history.

While the ill-fated group struggles to survive in the treacherous mountain conditions–searing heat that turns the sand into bubbling stew; snows that freeze the oxen where they stand–evil begins to grow around them, and within them. As members of the party begin to disappear, they must ask themselves “What if there is something waiting in the mountains? Something disturbing and diseased…and very hungry?”

/ARC Book Review /Freed (Voyeur #5) / Elena M. Reyes & N. Isabelle Blanco /

They wanted this.
To strip us of our humanity. Devolve us back to our most basic forms.
They used our love for each other as the trigger.
Now, they’ve succeeded. They’ve turned us into something else.
Into creatures willing to spill all their blood, end-all their lives, in the hopes of finally being freed.
Even if we die in our attempt to escape, Noah and I are determined to take as many of them down with us as we can.
Before it’s all over, we will all bleed for their sins.
All of us.

/ Book Review / Damaged (Voyeur #4) / N. Isabelle Blanco & Elena M. Reyes

“Now I’m going to ruin you.”
I found the way out.
Yet, Ivy doesn’t know it. Haven’t been able to tell her.
My plan is incomplete. Possibly flawed. The exit from this room is almost in the palm of my hand.
But there’s no telling what truly lies on the other side of that wall.
How the hell we’ll survive escaping this place.
How damaged we’ll be.
Jamie’s life is in our hands—one wrong move from us will be her end and yet, I can’t afford to let that stop me.
Fuck no.
I’ll forsake their lives without so much as a blink to get us out. Their blood on my hands I’ll wear with pride.
To survive I’ll kill every last one of them.
It’s time we finally escape.
We’ll die if we don’t.

/ Book Review / Broken (Voyeur #3) / N. Isabelle Blanco & Elena M Reyes /

Deceased.
Gone.
Someday to become a distant memory. 
They’re dead and I don’t feel an ounce of remorse.
Instead, the relief is almost instant. No longer will I feel like scum because my heart lies with him—My Noah.
The voice might’ve forced my hand, but in the end, I’ll always choose my heart. I’ve lived within my fear of losing him and that’s now been stripped from me.
We’ve been forced to say goodbye to our past and I’m embracing my future with both hands.
I’m no longer afraid.
I’m pissed. 
They want us broken, but instead they’ve unleashed a beast unwilling to submit. I’m an animal determined to save her man.
To live. 
I no longer care who gets in my way or what I have to do. I will have that man . . . 
And one day, we will both escape.

🕊Book Review🕊Of Die By the Drop🕊 (Shivers and Sins #1)🕊by Kaia Bennett🕊

I’d fought to lead a normal life, despite being anything but. 
Until the night three monsters forced me to fight for survival instead. 
They turned a short walk through the woods into the road trip to Hell. 
The leader made me his, made me dread pleasure and relish pain. Made me want things I’d once feared. 
They wanted to break me, bleed me drop by drop. 
They picked the wrong witch.
Author’s Note:

The light at the bottom of this rabbit hole is tinted obsidian, and I put the characters in this story through the ringer. Not for the faint-hearted, this read explores the dark side of obsession, in all its forms. Adults only from this point. Strap in and buckle up. Keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times. Because the teeth lurking ahead are razor sharp and the blood they seek might be yours. Please, do not attempt to exert your human morals on the fictional beasts you will meet. They’ll just laugh while they rip you to shreds
