Monsters (Prodigium Academy Book 1) by Katie May

#Review Monsters (Prodigium Academy Book 1) by Katie May


As the daughter of Dracula, you would think I’d be born the perfect monster.

You couldn’t be more wrong.

As far as monsters go, I’m a screw up—if I’m not tripping over my own feet, I’m accidentally murdering someone (it’s a real issue, guys).

Left with no choice, Dad decides to send me to Prodigium—otherwise known as Monster Academy—to train me on how to be a better monster.

When bodies turn up on campus, I’m the prime suspect (not that I can blame them. I’ll be pretty suspicious too if bodies drained of blood show up right after Dracula’s daughter arrives).

With the help of my mortal-nemesis Vin, Van Helsing’s son

Frankie, Frankenstein’s son

Mason, Medusa’s son

And Jack (sometimes Hux), Dr. Jekyll’s son

I might have a chance of uncovering the truth.

If I’m not murdered first.

The struggles of being a vampire, am I right?


This is a horror comedy reverse harem with some dark elements. After all, you can’t have a bunch of monsters without some darkness. This is book one of a series. the daughter of Dracula, you would think I’d be born the perfect monster.

Sassy Witch #review

Sassy Witch: Bitchin Coven Book One by Madeline Fay


The smell of Magnolias was all it took to bring the rush of childhood memories back.

The good ones and the bad.

But mostly, the memories are the ones I push away, not because they are bad, but because they remind me of everything I left behind.

I have returned home after five long years but is my heart ready to handle what’s to come? Can I handle being this close to the only two men I have ever loved?

Unfortunately I have bigger things to deal with, like who wants the witches in my Coven killed …

Dearly Departed #review

Dearly Departed: A Reverse Harem Academy Romance (Afterworld Academy Book 1) by Katie May & Loxley Savage


All great stories start with a death.

In this case, it’s my own.

Instead of the pearly white gates and yellow brick road leading me to Heaven, my soul is chosen to join Afterworld Academy – an exclusive boarding school to train selected souls on how to manage the Afterlife.

Ghosts, Demons, Reapers, and Angels.

Classes on how to fly. Studies on the proper way to select souls. Weaponry. Premonition. Oh, and field trips to Hell.

Sounds peachy, right?

When souls turn up dead, I must work with my four sexy-as-sin mentors to uncover the truth of my new reality.

Things are about to take a deadly turn.

Welcome to Afterworld Academy where the price of admission…is your life.



Dearly Departed is book one of a four book series by bestselling authors, Loxley Savage and Katie May. This is a reverse harem romance meaning that the main character won’t have to choose between her love interests. This is medium-burn and does contain strong language and sexual themes. Oh, and death. Lots and lots of death. Book one will end in a cliffhanger.



*Note from Authors
The main character does pass away from cancer (which is how she ends up in the Afterworld Academy). Please keep this in mind while reading, especially if that may be triggering to you. We would love for you to read our book, but we want you to take care of yourself.

Lawless by Crystal Ash #review @CrystalAshBooks

Lawless (Steel Demons MC Book 1) by Crystal Ash



The Collapse changed everything. Good men became killers. Strong women became property.
And every day turned into a fight for survival.



I once dreamed of becoming a nurse. That dream went up in flames the same day I graduated nursing school, when women were banned from holding any kind of medical license.



Now as an unlicensed medic, I travel what was once the southwestern United States, trading medical services for food, transportation, and shelter with the hopes of reaching Canada.
Because the United States is no more. And the lawless land that’s replaced it is a deadly place for a woman.



My worst fear comes true when I’m captured by the Steel Demons MC, the most ruthless biker gang in the Southwest. These men thrive on the violence and chaos brought on by the Collapse, and they’re eager to unleash it all on me.
It doesn’t even matter that the President’s dog likes me. I’m as good as dead.



Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! This wild ride is not for the faint of heart and contains adult themes that may be triggering.

Aurora’s Coven (The Lost Coven Book 1) by K.A. Knight


In helping someone I love, I lost my life. Or did I?

Cut off from my body, I live in the home of a god who’s willing to train me, to help me fully embrace my powers, both as a witch and as a reaper. But while I lay in a coma, the men I left behind suffer, desperate to find a way to bring me back.

I want to return to them, but our family is not complete. One is missing, a member of the coven who was lost before they found me. And I must go on a quest to Purgatory and bring him back, or we’ll forever be incomplete.

I’m coming home to my men, to my family, but will my return bring relief or doom us all?

Author Steffanie Holmes #interview & #review

Please give a warm welcome to author Steffanie Holmes

Tell us a bit about yourself

My real name is Steff Green, and I’m a 30-something writer living in New Zealand. My husband and I built our own home on a slice of rural paradise, and we currently live there with our horde of cats and our medieval sword collection.

When I’m not writing, I love to travel, tear up the mosh pit at a metal show, and brew my own wine and mead.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Pretty much! I was going to be a writer and an archaeologist from the age of about 7. I went to university to study archaeology, and even participated in digs and conservation work all over New Zealand, but because of my eyesight (I’m legally-blind) I couldn’t convince anyone to hire me. I turned to writing instead.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Books! I love all things books, so it’s been so much fun incorporating that into the Nevermore Bookshop series. My husband and I visited this beautiful old bookshop in York in England last time we were there that we still talk about, and I always thought it would be a great setting for a series. I’ve been reading a lot of cozy mysteries lately and watching a lot of Midsomer Murders. And I kept seeing people talking about their “book boyfriends” online and decided it would be super fun to create a harem of book boyfriends and what it would be like if they came to life. Add a dash of Black Books-esque humour and you have the Nevermore Bookshop Mysteries!

What are you working on now?

I’ve just finished the first draft of book 2 in the Nevermore Bookshop series, OF MICE AND MURDER. After that’s been edited, I’ll be starting book 3, which is themed around Jane Austen, and I can’t wait!

Do you have any quirks while writing?

Because of my eyesight, I write with my screen contrast reversed – so black background with white letters.

What are your hopes for the future?

Selling millions of books, travel the world, learn how to pilot a plane… you know, the usual sort of thing 🙂

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Your first book is your experiment book. It’s where you make a lot of your beginner mistakes. It’s perfectly okay that it’s not perfect – the important thing is that you write it and get it out there!

Do you have anything to say to your fans?

You guys are the best. Seriously. THANK YOU. Without you, I’d just be shouting into the void. Thank you.
