Book excerpt: Hex Marks the Spot, by Ani Gonzalez

I’ve occasionally mentioned that I don’t always know what, exactly, draws me into a book’s summary. That isn’t at all the case with Ani Gonzalez’s Hex Marks the Spot.

There were a few key phrases that locked me in as soon as I read them:

  • The main character’s hometown is the “Most Haunted in America”;
  • There’s a hellhound chihuahua; and
  • A necromancer has to save the world.

Those were, without a doubt, my favourite parts of this book’s summary. And we get a glimpse of each one of them in today’s excerpt.

Cover reveal: The Night Realm, by Annette Marie

One of my favourite aspects of a good cover is the promise that it makes. It can tell you so much–everything from what genre you can expect to what emotions you may encounter along the way.
