411UUFkwQEL._SX311_BO1,204,203,200_Welcome home, little doll…

Detective Jade Phillips is back in the second installment of the Pretty Little Dolls series. In fact, she’s back in the same cell where her captor, Benny, held her prisoner for four years, along with her sister, Macy—who Jade had left behind during her escape over eight years ago. While she is fighting to stay strong and to overpower Benny once and for all, Jade has high hopes that she’ll make her escape again and to finally bring Macy home. But after years of Benny’s abuse, Macy has lost her mind. Will Jade still be able to save Macy?

Meanwhile, Detective Dillon Scott—Jade’s lover and partner on the police force—is doing everything in his power to find Jade and to destroy Benny. Until Benny is dead, Dillon knows Jade will never be at peace.

Honestly, I couldn’t put this book down. It definitely got better, especially because most of the chapters were from Benny’s point-of-view. If you’ve read the previous book, you know how much of a psycho he is. In this book, though, he gets worse. This installment was twice as disturbing and graphic, but it’s still worth reading. Also, the book had more of Dillon’s perspective and I liked that he was quick to act when it came to Jade. His love for her was strong and he was willing to stop at nothing to have her back.

If you haven’t read the first book, Pretty Stolen Dolls, I encourage you to do so. You just might love it. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. As I’ve mentioned regarding the previous book, the second book also contains violence, language, and adult content. Feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!

“Tatum”–Review

36382422Watch Your Back.

A strange woman is haunting Tatum’s nightmares. When this woman—the one Tatum calls the Skeleton—begins to appear in her reality, Tatum starts to wonder if she’s going crazy. Why is she the only one who sees this woman?

It isn’t long before murders start happening in her neighborhood. Along with her sanity, Tatum’s life is on the line. Unfortunately, she can’t bring up the woman; it’ll just make her sound crazy, after all. Then she learns that her nightmares, the recent deaths, and the Skeleton all are connected. But is the Skeleton the murderer? And how can Tatum prove she’s not insane?

Good evening, all! I just realized that this is my first book review for this year, so I’m excited to share a new read. Not only did this story catch my attention, the title especially aroused my curiosity. After all, how often do I come across a book with my name as the title? I rarely read horror novels, but this story was interesting. In fact, I’m curious about the next book, Kallista, which should be available this year.

As always, feel free to post your comments. Happy reading!

About the author: Hailing from Johannesburg, Southern Africa, Sian B. Claven has enjoyed stories all her life, whether reading them or making them. She has written for as long as she can remember. Ensared is the first book she decided to publish. Moving towards writing more for a horror genre, when Sian isn’t thinking of ways to terrify people, she enjoys writing science fiction stories, poetry, and rather long and gushy birthday wishes. When she isn’t writing, you can find her knitting, scrap-booking, reading, or playing Xbox. Sian also reviews for The Blithering Bibliomaniacs and clearly doesn’t know what the words rest and relaxation mean. At least, not in the traditional sense. Check her out on Facebook, Instagram, and Goodreads.
