Nothing is ever quite as it seems, at least not for Ariya Adams. She’s only recently discovered the supernatural world is real, and that world wants something from her. Her blood. Her unique ability to heal both werewolves and vampires with only a few drops, gives Ariya a great power. However, that power has put her in inexplicable danger.
James, her sexy vampire boyfriend and Protector, has done well keeping Ariya safe in the past, but when a new, more powerful and manipulative evil comes into play, it may be more than they can handle. Especially when their forbidden affair makes Ariya more vulnerable to the deception that this new enemy brings along. Her grasp on reality will be tested and twisted as she battles to save James, her friends, and herself.
Despite her determination, she may be faced with a pain greater than she ever thought possible. This time, the power of her blood might not be enough to save those she loves most. And if that happens, will Ariya survive?

Review From Brittany At Nerd Girl
“Catching a Sorcerer is a fast paced magical novel. I was hooked from the first sentence to the last. I have loved sorcery since Harry Potter and this book was a breath of fresh magical air. Sara Walker did a great job of creating a unique magical world that was believable. I loved that there was different types of sorcerers beyond just good and bad!
Melanie here aka VampireLovingDork back with my review of the ARC of Unspoken Bonds which was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Michelle Grey sent me a book earlier this year for review, Dangerous Ally which I thoroughly enjoyed but at the end there was a teaser for this book which absolutely hooked me. So much so that I messaged Michelle IMMEDIATELY to find out when it was going to come out and having received it I probably SHOULDN’T have started it when I was supposed to be moving house because it was near impossible to put down
Whilst the story is a little predictable the characters are so captivating that it didn’t bother me in the least. The child Lily just about broke my heart and I don’t even LIKE children!
Well written and a compelling page turner I could easily have sat and read it in one sitting had real life requirements not kept interfering. Michelle does an excellent job of spinning a yarn that is difficult to resist. As someone who doesn’t like contemporary romance in general and is not a fan of children… Continue reading

**Review By Shelby From The Nerd Girl Page**
** I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review **
“Bishop Street” is a heartwarming and redemptive novel that captures the complex relationships between four orphans and their lifetime of challenges. It’s uplifting and with each turn of the page you fall more in love with the characters.

Brecken Shaefer isn’t any normal teenager. He has special gifts that are sure to make Alisa’s afterlife miserable. When feelings develop between them, everything spins out of control. Not only must Alisa face her own demons— but to protect Brecken, she must face an evil so heinous that it threatens to destroy their souls completely.
Alisa is tired of hiding from her past. When the easiest thing to do is run, can Brecken give her the strength to stay?

“Well, the title has dragons in it, so I read it, though I couldn’t figure out how the dragons and the cowboys got together, but I guess that’s the point of the book!
I wasn’t really interested by the blurb, and I can honestly say the blurb doesn’t come close… Continue reading
