Series Review: Panapolis by Cari Z

Panopolis Series by Cari Z Genre: M/M Superhero Romance Publisher: Riptide Publishing   Wendy’s Review: Boy do I get sucked in by a good cover.  I was just flipping casually through Negalley’s catalog when I came across that fierce cover of Where There’s Fire.  I mean, isn’t it so awesome?  The color of the title, the guy in the hoodie, the blue aura around his head… Then the synopsis is about two Villains who couple up to cause mayhem and madness in Panopolis.  I mean, clearly I’m a sucker for Superhero stories, but this just seemed like something that was exactly my thing.  Superhero, romance, supernatural powers… [ Read More of this Review ]

Review: What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang

What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang Book #1 – The Hybrid Chronicles Genres: Young Adult, Dystopia [box color = white]I should not exist. But I do.

But as they grew, so did the worried whispers. Why aren’t they settling? Why isn’t one of them fading? The doctors ran tests, the neighbors shied away, and their parents begged for more time. Finally Addie was pronounced healthy [ Read More of this Review ]
