Poison & Honey
Kristen Brand contacted me out of the blue and asked me if I’d be willing to read and review the first two novellas in the Dark & Otherworldly series. I accepted and jumped in even though I had no idea what I was jumping into.
And honestly that’s one of the best things about these novellas. Things are not explained, you don’t really know what’s going on in Poison & Honey you just find yourself in a strange world and you need to work it out as you go along.
I love that.
And because I love that I’m not going to offer any insights into the story. Just that it’s original, well written and entertaining. And 5 Stars just because.

The battle is over and Leigh has won, or is it? The second novella brings with it a new challenge. And enemies find themselves forming uneasy alliances.
These novellas are great, but I read a lot of great books. The thing that really set the first one apart was the lack of information. I was just dropped into the story and had to figure things out for my self. It never overwhelms you but it certainly keeps you on your toes.
And I hope Kristen Brand is able to keep surprising me as the series progresses because I’m in for the long haul. Great books.
Great recommendation Ian. I admit that I stay away from unknown authors mostly due to the low quality of the text rather than the unimaginative stories.. But knowing that a book is, at least, well written, I will give a new author a chance.
