The ever-exciting follow-up to Kings of The Wyld can be read independently of the first book, taking place 6 years after the siege of Casita. There’s a new band sweeping the nation, Fable, led by the fearless daughter of Golden Gabe, Bloody Rose. But this isn’t her story per se, this is the story of Fable’s newest bard, Tam Hashford, as she joins Fable for their very last tour--a tour to finally pull Rose out of her father’s shadow and into her spotlight. In the same spirit as the first of a rock and roll road trip across The Wyld , albeit a bit darker this time around. This is the story of loving the family you make along the way, while also learning who you truly are, and to not let others define who or what you are. ~ Reviewed by Jordan Starks

This is the deliciously spicy sequel to the equally blush-inducing, A Touch of Darkness. While the many plot points and melodramatic writing feels at times a little too much, the building relationship of Hades & Persephone still carries the story through and through. Persephone grows a lot, mainly due to some very thorny lessons and tough decisions, bringing her and Hades to a more royally equal standing. Sexy and dark, perfect for winter. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz

A soft fantasy romance that perfectly blends the two genres and does so with the utmost care. A Marvellous Light truly is a "marvellous" tale and one that had me rooting for our two main protagonists from page one. It is a compelling love story filled with magic; an absolute joy to read. ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

This was one fun read! It has everything you could want in a fantasy romance; vampires, enemies to lovers, arranged marriage, and evil lurking around every corner. It was a fast-paced, unputdownable novel and exactly what I was looking for. Perfect for fans Sarah J. Maas! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

This book is the closest thing I have read to capturing the magic that is playing Dungeons & Dragons, from the way the protagonists banter and bicker, to the characters you can’t help but fall in love with or love to hate, to the incredibly simple but unique fantasy world our heroes finds themselves in. Here we have a world where mercenary bands are treated with the same level of recognition and star power that modern-day bands have, and this is the story of the greatest band ever, Saga. But Saga retired years ago, they’ve grown old, fat, and some even have moved on from adventuring and have families, that is until Saga’s former frontman Gabe comes to his old friend Clay Cooper with bad news Gabe’s daughter is trapped in a city besieged by a horde of monsters so evil it's as if they came straight out of nightmares, but unfortunately for Gabe, this nightmare is very real, and it will take a miracle to save his daughter, it’s time to get the band back together. ~ Reviewed by Jordan Starks
