Book Review For :THE DUKE by Katharine Ashe
The Duke: A Devil's Duke Novel - Katharine Ashe

4.5 Stars
'THE DUKE' by Katharine Ashe is Book Three in the "Devil's Duke" series. This is the story of Amarantha Vale and Gabriel Hume. This can easily be a standalone book.
Amarantha from an early age wanted to only marry for love and thought she might have found that in Reverend Paul Garland. Gabriel was a Lieutenant for the Royal Navy when he first met Amarantha during a hurricane where they were trapped in a cellar. Amarantha and Gabriel survived and they both went into helping other people with the aftermath. Amarantha had made it clear a few days later that she was engaged but Gabriel said 'Not for Long'. Amarantha started to see that Paul wasn't all that she thought him to be and that her feelings were going toward Gabriel. But his ship had to sail out now that the worst of the cleanup was done but he promised to return for her and she was to wait. But she was later told that his ship was ambushed by bandits and that Gabriel was dead.
Now several years later Amarantha is a widow looking to find her Sister In Law which has taken her to Scotland. There she finds that Gabriel is a live and they both start to know that they have been kept apart but can they get back what was starting to grow within them?
This was a great second chance at love story that Ms. Ashe has wrote!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

The Devil's Woods - Brian Moreland
The Devil's Woods - Brian Moreland

Brian Moreland is simply money in the bank. I have yet to read anything of his that I didn't love and The Devil's Woods is his best yet. Kyle and his brother and sister, Eric and Shawna, grew up on the Cree reservation until their mother divorced their father. Eric and Shawna have grown distant from their father, a university archeology professor and an alcoholic, but Kyle has still kept in touch with him through the years. When the siblings receive a call from their uncle Ray inviting them back to the reservation for a visit, Kyle thinks this may be a good way for all of them to reconnect after all these years. Unfortunately, when they arrive, they learn that their father is missing. Kyle attempts to piece together his father's last whereabouts with what he was investigating. What he learns is that their idyllic Canadian hideaway in the woods has an evil buried deep within where things are not as they would seem.



You can tell that Moreland did his research for The Devil's Woods. Its all in the details and his writing is spot on. You get invested in the siblings. Kyle is still mourning from the loss of his wife and you root for him to find happiness. Shawna is the free spirit rebellious type that shows her immaturity from time to time. Eric is the obnoxious womanizer that you want to see get what he has coming to him, yet there are times when he shows his human side and you almost sympathize with him. All of Moreland's characters have depth, no two dimensional cardboard stereotypes here. He also brings the Canadian woods to your doorstep. It feels like you're crunching over leaves, swatting the occasional mosquito and seeing that shadow disappear behind a tree trunk out of the corner of your eye. He really immerses you in his story. He also has done his homework to get the Cree culture and Canadian landscape just right. Moreland delivers another fantastic read and I can't wait for the next one.

The Duke by (Devil's Duke) by Katharine Ashe
The Duke: A Devil's Duke Novel - Katharine Ashe


Never have I come across a tale as complex as The Duke. Ms. Ashe has created a thinker's romance filled with labyrinths and heart-stopping emotion. A puzzle waiting to be solved.

The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea
The Jersey Devil - Hunter Shea

The Jersey Devil, as you may have guessed, is a creature feature. It was fun and bloody, which are the top things I'm looking for in a book of this nature.


I thought it was a little too long, and a little far fetched, (but then again, most creature features are over the top.)


It was an entertaining and light read which was perfect for my mood.

The Devil Crept In - Ania Ahlborn

It's been a while since I felt so indifferent toward a book. Like . . . I'm having trouble thinking of anything to say, at all. Sorry 'bout that. It happens to every reviewer.


Ania Ahlborn has talent, okay? I can tell. She has talent in spades. Brother, though horribly gruesome and terrible, is well written and . . . well, horrific. That book still makes me a little sick.


The Devil Crept In is much tamer. I liked that. I'm not a fan of excessive gore and whatnot (though I do enjoy splatterpunk from time to time). This was a novel more about atmosphere and psychological scares. I liked the characters, especially little Stevie. And I loved part two, with Otto. I could have read an entire novel about that storyline.

Part three lost me. I don't know. I just got bored and had to force myself through. I'll give this 3 stars because I really enjoyed parts one and two. Maybe I'll reread this in the future and like it more.


Read for 'Terrifying Women'.
