Reviewer:  Stacey Krug  

Blurb/Summary:

No, silly. Not us. Team #Stewin is still enjoying being engaged and a nice long winter hiatus from murder and ghost chasing.


Until we open up Madam Zoltar's for the beginning of tourist season and the first customers are a bridal party from the seventh level of you-know-where!

When the soon-to-be ex-husband of the matron of honor is found dead at the motel where the bridal party is staying and she's accused of his murder--a murder we're convinced she didn't commit--our quiet comes to a screeching halt.

Add in the matron of honors dead twin, who appears to be desperately trying to get some kind of message to us, Belfry who's behaving strangely, and more poofy pink dresses than you can count, and you've got yourself a mystery.

A mystery we're determined to solve! The gang's all here. Join us for another romp in Witchless in Seattle, won't you?


Review:

Great to see Stevie and Win in action together with their sidekicks Arkady and Belfry. Where There’s a Witch, There’s a Way is an interesting murder mystery with lots of action, both normal and paranormal. I think one of the characters was channeling her inner “Nina” (from the Accidental Series) the whole book. The murder mystery is well done and all wrapped up for us by the end of the book.

Dana has become more involved with Win and there are some intriguing side effects of their relationship. As a reader, I hope that they all get to work on a case together in the future.

It was nice to see Stevie and Win’s relationship progressing with more teasing about wedding plans and some dates sprinkled into the story.  

This was a fun book and a great addition to the series.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug 


Blurb/Summary:

The final book in New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love’s explosive Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador™ World series is a thrilling rollercoaster ride to an unexpected ending.

Daegan is given an unconscionable task to execute before he’ll be told how to find the last grimoire volume. Casidhe jumps at learning the truth of her bloodline only to discover a deadly surprise. While running solo, Reese angers the Imortik master who sends two possessed Beladors to drag her to him. Human military lock on Evalle and her Belador team racing to stop preternatural threats. With one last hope of surviving, Cathbad goes all in and encounters a battle he never planned on. The Imortik master escalates his plans sooner than anyone expected.

Everything comes down to this moment and Daegan is not ready.

Review:

Absolutely amazing ending to what has been a journey of epic proportions. Dianna Love hit it out of the park with this final book. She even manages to throw in some major plot twists that no one will see coming.

Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador World: Book 9 is constant non-stop action from beginning to end. Everything you have been wanting to see answered has a conclusion of some sort.

I love this book and didn’t want it to end. This final book met all my expectations as a reader and then some.

I’m hoping to see some of these characters play out roles in future books. There are so many stories that can still be told and Dianna Love made it so we can jump back into this wonderful fantasy world that she created.

Highly recommend this series!

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  

Blurb/Summary:

Who do you call when you spot a baby hellhorse? Shifter Vets!


Judy desperately needs to find a home for her nineteen rescue horses. Waylon desperately needs to rein in his headstrong teenage daughter's quest to tame a wild hellhorse. And what both of them need most desperately is love...

Waylon, a bear shifter and veterinarian for magical animals, instantly recognizes Judy as his mate. But a few things stand between them and true love, namely...

1. Waylon's secret.
2. Waylon's daughter Raelynn's secret.
3. Judy's "Save the Horses" Instagram campaign's lack of likes.
4. The young hellhorse that starts wildfires every time it gets excited.
5. A dangerous beast shielded by its living armor.
6. A fire-breathing chicken.

Coming together to make a new family isn't easy. But Vets For All Pets--and the magical animals its shifter vets care for-- has lots of practice at creating love against the odds.

Bear Vet is a sweet, feel-good shifter romance full of love, laughter, and adorable animals, perfect for reading before bedtime. If you'd love to have a pet miniature pegasus or a kitten with wings, one-click on Bear Vet now!

Review:

Bear Vet: Shifter Vets #2 was a cute story with a lot of heart. This story focused on family and relationships and how it all worked for them. I enjoyed the dynamics and found them entertaining.

The romance between Judy and Waylon progressed as you would expect with a fated shifter mate, but there was a slow burn due to an existing child in the mix. This was not an overly exotic or sexually explicit paranormal romance story.

The author has a wonderful imagination and let it ride with all the different magical creatures in this book. I found myself intrigued by this new world Zoe Chant created and will be seeking out further books by this author.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  

Blurb/Summary:

Book 8 in New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love’s explosive Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador™ World series brings new reveals and races toward the last book.

Daegan and Casidhe are tested at every turn by angry immortals when they appear uninvited in a place with no exits. An expected change of events devastates Daegan’s hope of gaining the second grimoire volume and shatters Casidhe’s trust. Faced with becoming a monster, Adrianna gambles with the ancient Witchlock power capable of cataclysmic results and becomes collateral damage. Possessed by an Imortik, Reese runs to keep Quinn safe and finds a way to save others even though she can’t save herself. Renata’s two imprisoned Belador friends convince her to attempt escaping, which draws the Imortik master’s unwanted attention and an order to commit murder. Macha is shocked to discover firsthand just how crazy, and deadly, Queen Maeve has become.

In spite of every effort by the dragon king, Beladors, and their allies to fight on, they are losing ground as the Imortiks continue to escape from more rifts.

Review:

All of the subplots and characters in motion are racing towards a resolution. Not sure if all the outcomes will be pleasant. As a reader, I’m hoping that some of the evil characters get what they deserve. There is only one book left so we won’t have long to wait to see what Dianna Love has in store for everyone.

Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador World book 8 seamlessly takes off where book 7 left us. Wonderful writing, the author keeps all the major players moving. This book has more revelations that you don’t want to miss.

This is a fantastic series and each book has been well-written and a joy to read. I look forward to the conclusion of the series and highly recommend this for anyone that enjoys fantasy or urban fantasy genres.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  

Blurb/Summary:

At a fateful New Year’s Eve party, Georgina Maverick, a little bit drunk, a lot mired in guilt from her tortured past, trips and falls off a rooftop, tumbling ten stories to her almost death.


Little does George know, her friend and co-worker, Dexter Bridger, the man she discovers also happens to be her guardian angel, is on the case. He saves her from landing toe up in the mortuary, but he opens an entire can of worms when he nicks her shoulder and turns George into an angel, too.

With the help of the OOPS ladies and some divine intervention from Dex, George is learning how to be a guardian angel in the hope she can earn her permanent wings. But it ain’t easy when your newbie wings are strap-on (you read that right), and your angelic glow nearly fries the eyeballs right out of the head of your new cranky, vampire friend.

But worse? All the secrets that haunt both George and Dex are coming home to roost.

For instance, how did Dex become a guardian angel anyway, and why doesn’t he have his permanent wings after all this time? And for the love of all that’s good looking, why is he so stupid cute? How can a girl focus on getting it together with that kind of distraction?

Yet for George, the questions cut far deeper. Why is it so hard to overcome her brutal past and find the thing she’s always wanted—peace of mind and acceptance? And how the heck is she supposed to be someone’s guardian angel and guide them to emotional safety when her own life is such a wreck?

Worst of all? Who’s been lurking in the shadows trying to steal George’s wings? Because if someone gets their hands on her wings, guess what?

She loses her soul.

Forever…

Review:

Accidentally Divine book 20 of the Accidental Series was a complete page turner. Our hero, Dexter Bridger, and heroine, Georgina Maverick, are brought to life on the pages with real life hard-hitting problems and issues. They have both experienced past traumas that have shaped the people/angels they have become.

The OOPs ladies, Nina, Marty, Wanda, and crew play a crucial role just by being who they are as a family. They pull together and rally around another accidental turning and make some great friends along the way.

This was a fun and heartfelt story that had me laughing and crying. Don’t miss out on Dexter and Georgina’s journey. I will be looking forward to seeing how Dakota Cassidy uses her angels in future books.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug 

Blurb/Summary:

Book 7 in New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love’s explosive Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador™ World series continues with more surprises, fast action, and unexpected reveals.

Casidhe followed her conscience. It cost her everything and she now faces Herrick’s wrath for deceiving him. After a disastrous trip to the Caucasus Mountains, Daegan has no mercy for another enemy, then discovers important information about his past from an unlikely source. He’s running out of days to locate the second grimoire volume on his own and enters a hostile Tribunal where Loki demands the return of Sen in one day or Beladors will pay. Reese has to choose between saving millions, including Quinn, from a demon invasion and giving up her baby. Adrianna sees an opening to save herself and Sen, but nothing is ever as it appears when dealing with monsters. Locked away by the Imortik master, Renata discovers friends imprisoned with her, who need her to escape, but she doesn’t trust the dangerous plan. Daegan is forced to make an agonizing decision to find the next grimoire volume, setting changes into motion which can’t be reversed.

Atlanta is pulling apart at the seams and Imortiks are breaking through rifts in other countries. Nonhumans in the alliance are fighting on all fronts to protect humans and their own as more predatory supernaturals pour into the city, including a goddess bent on revenge.

*This is book 7 of a 9-book spinoff series for first time readers as well as current Belador™ fans. All 9 audiobooks will be released within a year.

Review:

Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador World: Book 7 had a wonderful pace and great momentum from beginning to end. Readers are treated to more history from a long gone by era that sheds light on Daegan’s past as well as other characters.

Followers of the series will know from book six that there is an awful lot in motion right now. Book seven pushes those issues to the forefront and forces characters to make decisions and take action. Things are all coming to a head as there are only two more books left.

This was a fun read with details you won’t want to miss. There is a doozy of a cliff-hanger at the end like the other books. Each book is like a season finale as you wait for the next season to start. Fortunately for us Dianna Love has been kind and the wait will only be a few months.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  


 Blurb/Summary:

Book 6 in New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love’s explosive Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador™World series continues as the dragon clans face off and Imortiks are gaining strength.

*This is book 6 of a 9-book spinoff series for first time readers as well as current Belador™ fans. All 9 audiobooks will be released within a year.


Review:

Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador World Book 6 was amazing! If you’ve been following the series then you’ve gotten to know the characters. There is a scene with Casidhe and Cathbad that left me covered in goosebumps and chills. It was so unexpected and exciting, both the goosebumps and the scene.

Book six is non-stop action from the beginning to the end. This book pulled me in and I hated to finish it. I wish it could have kept going, but I know I can look forward to book 7 soon. 

It was awesome to witness one of the characters coming into their own and standing up for themselves. I look forward to the day of reckoning that is inevitable.

Superb read and I highly recommend!

Reviewer: Stacey Krug

Blurb/Summary:

Book 5 in New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love’s new Treoir Dragon Chronicles of the Belador™ World continues an epic fantasy adventure with shocking surprises and twists.

Faced with losing the only grimoire volume Daegan has or turning his back on Casidhe, he makes a surprising choice. Time is literally running out of an hourglass for Casidhe to prove her value to Queen Maeve or face never leaving TÅμr Medb, but to hand the crazy queen a grimoire volume would destroy humans and nonhumans. Reese finds a place to stay away from those she cares for in Atlanta while hunting the origin of demons flooding the city, but she’s not as adept at hiding as she thinks.
Brynhild made a tactical mistake in underestimating humans with weapons and will not do so again. To destroy the red dragon, she needs a partner who understands this world and the one she selects has his own agenda.

In a bid to free Casidhe, Daegan agrees to enter a ghost castle where every step is a deadly trap set specifically to kill him.

*This is a 9-book spinoff series for first-time readers as well as current Belador fans.
All 9 books will release within a year and be available in e-book, print, and audiobooks.

Review:

This series has it all: journeys, quests, peril, majik, supernatural beings, demi gods, realms, demons, druids, dragons, and Fae. Book five continues on as if you never had to wait.

Daegan is hard at work in this book trying to secure a volume of the grimoire and save Casidhe. Meanwhile, all the other characters are off trying to save the world from demons and imortiks. There are so many plot lines going that the book flows seamlessly from beginning to end. This is a total page turner with more plot twists, new characters, and new developments in regards to current characters.

Treoir Dragon Chronicles is a nine-book series so there is a cliff-hanger that will have you coming back for the next book.

Very well done and I highly recommend. You can start this series even if you have not read the Belador series.

Reviewer: Stacey Krug  

Blurb/Summary:

Breed warrior Micah is one of the Order’s best, his reputation for cold justice and lethal skill rivaled only by that of his formidable father, Tegan. So, when a mission Micah’s leading in an off-limits area called the Deadlands goes terribly wrong, leaving him the sole survivor of an apparent Atlantean attack, he won’t rest until he has answers...and vengeance for his fallen team.

Phaedra thought it was only a dream, a hideous nightmare. Yet somehow, she had been transported from her life in Rome to a stretch of barren forest when it suddenly lit up with unearthly fire, obliterating everything in its path—including the fiercely handsome Breed warrior she’d encountered in the dream. Or so she believed, until their paths cross again and Phaedra finds herself, and her Atlantean people, at the center of Micah’s wrath.

With tensions between the Breed and the Atlanteans already edging toward war, and another powerful nemesis growing bolder by the day, uncovering the stunning truth about what happened in the Deadlands will force Micah and Phaedra to work together in an alliance forged by fate and an undeniable desire neither of them can resist.

Review:

Fall of Night is a pulse-pounding, plot-twisting literary delight. Lara Adrian keeps the ongoing war realistic and terrifying with a dash of hope sprinkled along the way. The reality of war speaks loudly, but love will not be silenced.

Phaedra and Micah have more than a rocky start, but Phaedra’s courageous attitude will not be kept down. She shows time and again what she is really made of and Micah can’t help but fall for her. Their chemistry scorches the pages.

With the war still raging on in Fall of Night and their enemies seeming to multiply, readers are treated to plot-twists and the promise of future books. Don’t miss out, read Fall of Night!

Review:

Oh my God! Just when you thought you had a handle on where the storyline is going there is a major plot twist. Hang on to your chair as this is one wild ride!

Dianna Love writes villains that readers just love to hate, and we see plenty of them in book 4 of Treoir Dragon Chronicles.

This is a 9 - book series that will all be released within the year. Readers will have something fun to look forward to throughout the next year. 

If you are an audio book fan, then you will be thrilled with these books. The reader is fabulous and brings the characters to life in a different and good way.
