Review — The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

I’d seen this book mentioned on Twitter several times, and I thought it sounded interesting, so I borrowed the audiobook from Hoopla.

Review — The Substitute by Denise Grover Swank

I found The Substitute on Amazon for free, so I picked it up a few months ago. I hadn’t read anything in nearly a month, and the description promised plenty of misunderstandings and a bit of romance–possibly the perfect thing to get me out of my funk.

Review — Until It Fades by K.A. Tucker

I borrowed Until It Fades from my library’s Overdrive. It’s not often I see a book on there and think I just *have* to read it as soon as possible, but the description got me on this one! Right up my alley.

Review – Blood Oath by Melissa Lenhardt

This is the second Laura Elliston novel, and continues to follow “Laura” and Kindle. I received a NetGalley copy, just like I did for Sawbones (review).

Western / Historical Fiction


Outlander meets post-Civil War unrest in this action-packed follow up to Sawbones.
Laura Elliston and William Kindle are on the run — from the Army and from every miscreant in the West eager to claim the $500 bounty for Laura’s capture as their own. But the danger isn’t just from those pursuing them. Laura and Kindle have demons of their own and a past that won’t stay dead. Exhausted, scared, scarred and surrounded by enemies, neither realize the greatest danger is yet to come.


* I received a free NetGalley copy in exchange for an honest review.

I think my biggest impression of this book is that it is exhausting. Laura and William are almost constantly running, and I felt like there wasn’t an actual story with a beginning, middle, and end. It was all middle. At the end of the book, their situation seemed no more resolved than the beginning.

I will say that I believe Laura’s character did a bit of growing, a little healing, at least. But I still had a hard time connecting to her character.

2 of 5 stars, I’m not sure I’ll be reading the next installment anytime soon.
