NEW AUTHORS: The glow of an eternal flame by Robbie Haig

As you know, sometimes I like to find books with no reviews on Amazon and leave reviews of my own. Some of them are truly terrible, and this is one of them.

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST this was unreadable.

The first paragraph was a page-and-a-half long description of the character’s features, especially her eyes. Her name is Andalasia or something ridiculous like that. It’s her first day of high school and….at this point I zoned out and flipped forward. And it was like fifty more pages of high school drama that I didn’t care about before I just gave up.


IDK what the eternal flame is all about and I don’t care. I’m done. I’m so done. 3000%.

VERDICT: 1/5 stars.

(Note: 0 stars would be a book by an author that can’t even cobble together a proper sentence, or be bothered to write a synopsis or make a cover. I don’t really bother with those).

NEW AUTHORS: Bitten by RS Beck

I am starting a new series where I find books with no reviews on Amazon and read them and leave a review. Although I have yet to decide whether I want to leave one star reviews on any of these – that just seems mean.

Today’s book is Bitten: A Gay Urban Fantasy Novel. When you think “gay urban fantasy novel about a cop and vampires”, you conjure a certain image in your head of what you might get…and this is exactly it. It’s pretty fast-paced and sexy, surprisingly readable, and the author clearly did his research. The MC is likable enough. It’s just not really anything special.

I ran through this book in about an hour. If it’s your thing, you’ll probably like it (if you like cop dramas, vampire hunts, gay romance novels, or any combination thereof). Do I recommend it? Not really – my overall opinion is “meh.”

VERDICT: 3/5 Stars
