As if surviving the end of the world and the theft of my powers wasn’t enough on their own, a heaping pile of ogre and a side of human raiders has been added to my plate while trying to feed our starving caravan. The worst of what I face, though, is far harder to admit. My black magic takes its pound of flesh every time I use it, and each time the cost climbs. And yet, it calls to me, seducing me, all the while consuming little pieces of my soul. It’s a right bastard like that.

Caravan Witch is the second book in Pamela’s series. In this action and drama packed book we’re reunited with a long lost friend and love, a budding relationship is cemented, foes abound, and powers are freed. Ms. Mayer has a way of painting a story that draws the reader in and has them begging for more when it ends. I’m looking forward to book 3. The narrator did a good job!

A cute story with Nevada’s younger sister, the siren, leading the charge. Overall I liked the story and was sad to see it end so soon. The family dynamics and attempted murder kept me engaged. The story had more of a YA vibe than what is normal from the Author Lords team. Looking forward to more from this series!
The narrator did a good job!

Some people are ordained for greatness. Those people usually have a lot of drama in their life. Drama I happily do without. I live in a forgotten corner of nowhere for a reason: there is safety in anonymity. I have enough problems just trying to get by. But when Kieran, a sinfully sexy demigod at the pinnacle of power, crashes into my life, suddenly my whole world is turned upside down. He’s harboring a deadly secret, one that could destroy all he holds dear. He thinks I’m the key to his salvation, and he wants me to help him claim vengeance. He also wants me with a passion.

Holy moly, K.F. Breene does it again with the start of this new series! I was hooked from the first chapter and absolutely hated to put the book down! What an amazing story. A female lead with a lot of snark and sass takes on a demigod who reluctantly has the hots for the heroine. I laughed so hard a couple of times I was crying and getting dirty looks from my son. This isn’t an ordinary run of the meal paranormal story. The storyline is well developed, highly entertaining, & combines paranormal romance with mythology. The characters are likable and believable. Besides the main characters, I really, really liked the support characters. They were so much fun! I’m so looking forward to the next book! The narrator did a fantastic job!

Wisteria Wonders is book three in the Wisteria Witches Mysteries series. The story takes the listener on a humorous supernatural mystery ride where the characters seem more plausible than most paranormal stories. They are likable and maybe a little strange but definitely entertaining. A twisted plot, a foiled romantic interest, & a potential new relationship make for an interesting story. I chuckled out loud several times. The narrator did a nice job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
