Reaping a Pain in the Axe - Stacey Rourke
She took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks, and now... Death is coming for Lizzie Borden. Is she innocent? Guilty? I don’t know or care. Reapers have gone missing on their hunt to harvest the soul of the notorious axe murderer and I can’t afford to let my guard down. Scythe gripped tight, I’m marching into the past to deliver final judgement to Lizzie’s doorstep.
Borden may have a creepy ass rhyme, but I’m an ex-angel with nothing but time. Her father got forty-one whacks, now it’s time she learns reaping is the real pain in the axe.
The veil is lifting and Nyx is finally seeing things a bit more clearly. (It's about time!) Lucifer is up definitely up to something wicked. In Reaping a Pain in the Axe, Nyx is faced with the challenge of reaping the soul of Lizzie Borden. Desparate to see the good in people, Nyx just might lose her head, literally.
I'm so glad these novellas drop every 30 days because that ending left me with far more questions than answers. Wowzers!
Magic Awakened: a More than Magic serial
(Rise of the Arcanist Book 3) - Elizabeth Kirke
"Part fantasy, part mystery, all awesomeness" - 5 star review from award-winning book blog, 2 Girls and a Book
They say it took one hundred magical beings to defeat the first Arcanist. Great care was taken to ensure the secret to his malevolent power died with him. Now the brutal reign of the Arcanist has become little more than a scary bedtime story. And yet, the descendants of his loyal followers are sworn to find a way to bestow his dark magic upon another. If they succeed, they’ll unleash a new terror upon an unsuspecting world.
On the surface, it looks like a tropical paradise, but the island is hiding a sinister secret: it’s teeming with blood witches. Brought there against her will, Jen knows that she has to escape and warn the magical world about what she has learned. Staying means certain death, but trying to escape looks just as lethal.
Magic Awakened is Book Three in the Urban Fantasy series, Rise of the Arcanist, featuring dark witches, mermaids, werewolves, and more. It is a New Adult spin-off of USA Today Bestselling author Elizabeth Kirke’s award-winning More than Magic series. If you like your paranormal a little dark and creepy, take a vacation with Magic Awakened today.
Rise of the Arcanist is a six book serial, with each installment releasing a month apart. You do *not* have to read the original More than Magic trilogy to enjoy it.*
The Death of an Enemy, Bk 5 - Amy Richie
How can you leave me with a cliffhanger like that? This installment answered so many question but left me with so many more. I flew through the story in less than an hour (it's a novella). The secrets are coming into the light and I cannot wait till the next book.

And when my son’s lacrosse teammate goes missing, I know that ghost knows something. But getting him to talk about it is harder than getting my teenager to unplug from his video game!
Just as the puzzle begins to take shape, I start to realize that the situation is even worse than I had thought.
And then my own son disappears.
Now it’s all-out war...
Because nothing can stop a mother from saving her child.

Y'all there is scene where Thelma pumps a shotgun one handed and that alone is reason enough to read this book! Thelma is a total badass! Who knew?
The Chantilly Adair series is Steel Magnolias, The Golden Girls, and Ghost Whisperer rolled into one sweet laugh out loud paranormal mysetery series. Aspenson creates a quaint town filled with eccentric characters and I want to move in immediately
