Review: Bloodhound

Beka is now a Dog. Having graduated from a Puppy with a knack for finding trouble, now Beka guards the streets with her partner. Or, at least, she would if they could assign her a partner who sticks around for more than a few weeks. But when Beka and her old mentors begin to hear about counterfeit silver coins making their way into the city, coming from one of the port towns, it’s time to investigate. Beka is partnered with her mentor Clary, and the Hunt begins. They must find out who is behind the fake silver and capture them, before inflation takes over the whole kingdom and sinks them forever.

Review: Terrier

Beka Cooper is a Provost’s Dog, one of the many guards who take care of the city of Corus. If anyone dares step out of line, Beka and the other Dogs are there to get justice. Beka is still learning, though, new to the job and considered a Puppy, but she’s got an edge not too many others have. Beka can hear the spirits of the dead that fly around the city on pigeon wings. Her magic might be strange, but one thing is for sure, it’s never going to stop making life interesting!

ARC Review: Seven Faceless Saints

Ombrazia is supposedly blessed by the saints, or, at least, six of them. The six granted some of the people living there powers, whether they be powers over strength, healing, metal, or something else. Those with power are considered valuable, honored, and granted everything they could ever wish for. For the powerless, though, it’s a different story. Forced to fight in a war that’s older than they are, the powerless know that there’s little they can count on, other than dying. And it’s no longer just dying in the war. Someone is walking the streets of Ombrazia, murdering innocents for seemingly no reason.

When the murders reach one of those blessed by the saints, Damian, who has no powers, is assigned to investigate. Should he not find the culprit, he will be sent back to the front, a place he still has nightmares about. Roz, who used to be Damian’s childhood friend but now holds nothing but hatred for him, is investigating too. While she showed powers a bit later in life, it wasn’t before she lost her father to war, and pledged herself to the cause of the Rebellion. Her own goal in finding the murderer is to bring him to justice, and help protect those who are left to fend for themselves.

Damian and Roz will have to team up to find the murderer, before it’s too late.

Review: Wilder Girls

Over a year ago, the Tox invaded the Raxter School for Girls. This disease affected everyone differently, killing some, but for the survivors, they found their bodies changing in ways both horrific and fascinating. And painful.

Isolated on their island, the school depends on the scientists and army on the mainland to send them food and other necessities. Barely eking out a living, they wait for the day the scientists discover a cure. Hopefully before the Tox fully takes them over.
