Review: Dead Rockstar

Dead Rockstar
By Lillah Lawson

Finished: 10/2/2020

When Stormy decides to do a spell on a record album in a drunken haze,s he has no idea what she’s doing. She never expected the enigmatic rock star heartthrob, Phillip Deville, who had been dead for 20 years, to show up at her door.

What starts as a fun and sexy romp with an amateur necromancer and her hot undead rocker boyfriend turns into a much darker game as they delve deeper into the magic behind the spell. The plot is smart, twisty, fast-paced, and beautifully unpredictable. Stormy and Phillip’s chemistry is undeniable and things definitely heat up.

What I love the most about this book is how fresh and modern the writing is. Stormy is a vegan librarian who drinks on weekends with her BFF. She and her friend talk like real people and it doesn’t feel forced. Author Lilah Lawson has a quick and admirable style with witty dialogue and a pair of heroes who are to die for.

I’m excitedly anticipating the sequel!

My rating: 5/5 stars!

Review: Birthing the Beast

Finished: 4/24/2020

I first heard from Lewis through Instagram where we connected over our mutual love of werewolves and shapeshifters. When his book came out, I was so thrilled to read it!

Lewis has an incredible way of describing characters and setting the mood for a scene. From a brawl that has to be broken up by the local authorities, to a teenage girl running away from her father’s angry outburst, to a stormy night with a werewolf escaping from a castle-like prison. This is an incredible author whose work needs to be appreciated more.

Of course with a werewolf book, it’s important to see if they’re done well. I can happily attest that I absolutely loved the scenes with them! The action is intense and the atmosphere is incredible. The werewolf of this world are powerful, verging on unstoppable, and I absolutely loved it!

If you love werewolves, action, and a sympathetic protagonist, then you’ll love this book!

My Rating: 5/5 stars

Check Out the New Panel!

This weekend I got the chance to join some incredible authors in a panel for Next Chapter Con! We talked about the difficulties of balancing a day job with writing, how we got starting with writing and publishing, and what we have coming next.

I was so honored to be able to chat with these folks. They had such incredible insight and experience. It really made me miss being able to go to conventions again!

Watch the full panel below, featuring Dan Jolley, Bobby Nash, and Armand Rosamilia, moderated by Kenyon T. Henry. There’s also a special guest appearance by my kitty, Zoey, cause of course she wanted to be the center of attention haha!
