Book Review: ‘Known Devil’ by Justin Gustainis

Known Devil is the third instalment in Gustainis’ Occult Crime Unit urban fantasy series. Though I had not read the first two books, this one was completely stand-alone and didn’t make me feel I was missing anything. I have, however, read other books from Gustainis in the past (Evil Ways, Black Magic Woman and Sympathy for the Devil), and thoroughly enjoyed them. He is a…See More

She also suffers in silence for the death of her dad years ago.The action begins soon after Terra’s 12th birthday, when she receives an unexpected visit from a mysterious Spirit…See More

Book Review: ‘Secrets and Lies’ by Christine Amsden

Secrets and Lies is the second installment in the Cassie Scot new adult paranormal mystery series. Though there’s a bit of backstory in this novel, it’s preferable to read the books in order, if only to find out from the beginning who Cassie is, how she got started as a detective and, especially, how her romance with Evan evolved. Also to understand the animosity between their…See More
