Bound by an ancient prophecy, freed by love.

Mages have lived by a prophecy that states that once there are two mage houses left, one must kill the other to maintain a magical balance. But the prophecy is disrupted when a new mage is revealed and begins killing everyone in his path.

Simon Moonspell and Tobias Bloodworth, the last two mages of the ancient houses, must put their animosity aside in order to stop this new mage and fulfill the prophecy. However, when their hatred slowly turns to love, can they remain impartial or will they be forced to battle to the death?


In 73 pages Bloodspell give us; high action magical battle scenes, a prophecy foretold and solved, an evil villain defeated, and some fiery M/M BDSM sex scenes.

Two school yard enemies, mages Tobias and Simon, put aside their “ish” to work together to defeat a common foe, an evil villain by the name of Thornhill, who means corrupt and consume all the worlds magic.

There is a lot of story in so few pages. I would have loved more pages so that the characters relationship could have been more fleshed out. And I would have happily read a full-length book about Tobias and Simon falling in love and defeating baddies together.

This is an ADULTS ONLY tale and one not for the faint hearted or small minded. BUT if you’re brave enough BLOODSPELL will give you a hot and steamy roller-coaster ride that’s sure to entertain.

Behind the Lights: Adult Review

Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Joey Hayes and his best friend Ricky Branson have been together through the good times, as well as the bad. Attending their first concert as teens set the path for their futures in motion. Shortly after, the pair joined band class where they meet Ethan and Mick and the foursome formed the metal band, Social Sinners.

Things were going according to plan until Lucas Shane entered their lives, disrupting the flow and testing the strength of their friendship.

When Joey spirals down a dark path after catching his cheating boyfriend, this tasked the other three band members with making a difficult decision that could end his career as their lead singer.


Joey, Stoli, Mickey and Diamond; four mates who formed a heavy metal band in junior high (Social Sinners), who stuck together and ended up making it big.

Behind The Lights is the first in a five-book gay-erotic-romance series and it is told from the POV of Joey. For the most part it didn’t feel like I was reading erotica – It felt like I was reading a LGBT contemporary romance novel.

This book, as far as I am conceded is an example of erotica done right. Yes, obviously there were graphic male on male sex scenes, but there was so much more to it. It had a well-paced and enjoyable story. And it had easily likeable characters that by the end I had become emotionally invested in.

There are no over the top Rockstar drugged up antics or drug abuse from the Social Sinners – I’m not saying the boys don’t get up to any mischief, because they do, but it’s not over the top and drug use isn’t glorified in anyway.

The book starts where it ends, with Joey standing on the stage kicking off a Social Sinners show, a big one, back in the place where it all began. In-between we take a trip down memory lane with Joey, learning how Social Sinners came to be and watching Joey grow from child to man, discovering himself, his sexually and true passions along the way. This book has lots of build-up and back story – letting you get to know the boys.

If you’re curious to give Social Sinners a go, but the five books bit puts you off, I will say that I think the ending was satisfying enough for it to be a standalone. So, go forth without fear of cliffhanger endings.

And FYI book #2 In The Shadows, releases on the 8th August and is told from Stoli’s POV. So, when you find you really want more from the boys, you won’t have to wait long to get it.

Fence: Mini review, YA comic

36064768Fence (Fence #1)

by C.S. Pacat (Author) &
Johanna the Mad (Artist)

“Fence” follows the rise of 16-year-old Nicholas Cox in the world of competitive fencing at an elite boys school.
Nicholas is an outsider to the competitive fencing world.
Filled with raw talent but lacking proper training, he signs up for a competition that puts him head-to-head with fencing prodigy Seiji Katayama…and on the road to the elite all-boys school Kings Row. A chance at a real team and a place to belong awaits him—if he can make the cut!
“It’s all about the world of fencing,” said Pacat. “The elegance, the danger, the high stakes of what’s essentially a combat sport.”
Published November 15th 2017 by Boom! Box
I was keen to read Fence from the moment I first heard about it – A YA comic by aussie author C.S. Pacat set in the competitive world of Fencing with M/M romance – YES! a thousand times yes!
I was jumping for joy when The YA Chronicles announced it would be included in their November “Make it Gay” Box. Winning! 
 The first issue did not disappoint. I absolutely loved it and can see myself reading it over again until the december issue comes out.
Nicholas is a lovable underdog who is instantly likable. You can’t help but want him to succeed.
The first issue perfectly set up the tension between Nicholas and Seiji. I even enjoyed the fencing, a sport I previously hadn’t given much thought to.
The artwork is beautiful! Clear, detailed and flows wonderfully.
I am so excited for the next instalment! Hurray for this new comic book series.
