One day he gets in trouble with his dodgy doings and is being chased by an angry mob, and in his attempt...

2.5I love everything about the circus: that it was damned, it freaks (the octopus, the clown, the dwarf, the strong woman, etc), the only performance we are able to read... I love Gilbert and his magic, Jesse and his ability with fire. When they have a battle against Reuben's men it was awesome. I f...

Spoiler free!So do you ever get to the end of a book and want so badly to give it 5 stars and just can't?? Well...it's a damn shame. I really enjoyed this one...to the point that I think I mentally wrote this review 5 times in my head while reading it. Now granted the ratings and the review fluct...

When I first found out that Cornelia Grey – one of my most beloved underrated authors – was finally releasing her first NOVEL, I was absolutely excited. Especially when the story is part of her paranormal romance series, Deal with a Devil, which includes book 1 Devil at the Crossroads released last ...

The idea of a circus of the damned intrigued me and Grey did not disappoint. It was a visually sumptuous world with a wonderful mythology and huge "soul on the line here" stakes. Plus a sweet and steamy m/m romance. The only thing that kept me from giving it 4 full stars (or higher) was the voice of...
