    • I am always excited to read one of M.L. Sparrow's books. She is such a fantastic writer and I love the worlds that she builds within her novels. No Rest for the Wicked is no different. Even with a different genre, Sparrow excels with her writing. Romance isn't my kind of genre but it worked really well with this novel. I really like how it starts off quickly and doesn't dwell on boring introductions. Upon the first couple of pages, we already meet the main characters Elira and Anthony.Elira is a [...]


    • This was a cute story, the characters were well developed and the imagery was brilliant. I loved all the characters. I really loved with Elira, she was so young and innocent; I immediately felt like I should mother her, like Moira did, this is why I connected with her. Anthony, well he just sounded yummy from the start; seriously, who doesn’t want a man that owns a self-cleaning house? Hello! I’m here…Though the characters and writing were great, I felt it was a bit “over-written;” it [...]

    • No Rest for the Wicked is the third book by M.L. Sparrow, and the uniqueness of this story really made it stand out amongst the other books I have read lately. This is the story of Elira and how she was found by Anthony in the direst of straights. The differences with their social statuses and how secrets from Anthony’s past could tear these two young loves apart made for a great story. What I loved about this story was how Sparrow mixed so many different genres that it leaves the reader hangi [...]


    • Anthony and Elira's story was captivating. She's been left out to freeze after a rough past. He's a rich wizard. Thankfully he saves her from the cold and employs her in his house. Romance blooms between them and his enemies set out to target her. His abilities test their budding relationship. Will their love survive? This book sucked me in and wouldn't let me go into I finished. M L Sparrow's writing is unlike any I've read before.

    • No Rest for the Wicked by M.L. Sparrow was an fast pace magical romance with all the fun of an epic adventure. This was my first book by M.L.

    • I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a sweet romance mixed with a bit of adventure, danger, and magic.I loved the way the characters were written, particularly the humorous independence of the female lead, Elira, and the way she could be both hesitant to stand up for herself due to some things in her past, and incredibly strong in moments that truly mattered. I am also appreciative of the way that the indecision about the relationship is portrayed. In some books the back and forth becomes tires [...]

    • No Rest For The Wicked by M.L Sparrow is all of my favourite things wrapped up in one! It's a beautiful romance, which definitely has its hardships, whilst incorporating magic, paranormal fantasy. There is suspense that means you can't put it down, there are shock moments, happy moments and all other emotions come out reading this book. The book reads very easily, you don't lost with too much information, but enough that you attach to the characters. I unfortunately had never come across this au [...]

It had romance, great characters, some magical/paranormal elements (my new found genre!!) and it had a definite historical feel about it! The detail that the author went into in this story was just outstanding. I could imagine every little bit of scenery she was describing. Her character development was also really good and [...]


    • I would definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a fantasy romance! I fell in love with both of the main characters; Elira and Anthony. I loved how confident and independent Elira was, despite her being a damsel in distress at the beginning, and the morals she lives by. I also liked how her background was presented. Anthony’s character was not what I expected! At first you think he’s just a rich gentleman who uses his authority to get whatever he wants but he was actually so [...]

As a whole, it may have been heard before -- poor woman and rich man have feeling for each other. But this book is so much more than that. Elira and Anthony are such great main characters.

Then there's Anthony -- the very rich gentleman who apparently has a lot more t [...]

    • No Rest for the Wicked by M.L. SparrowThis story is a paranormal romance book. The story has a little bit of everything a reader could as for.

Elira has questions about Anthony and if he is able to be trusted. She has been hurt before and wants to move slowly. Anthony’s social status is upper class which tends to get in the way of his relationship with Elira [...]


    • No Rest For The Wicked written by ML Sparrow. This story is a stand alone. Elira and Anthony are the main characters and it is told through their perspectives. This story was a little hard for me to get into as historical timeline stories are not my normal genre. The characters were well written even though Elira started out shy and meek she grew into a stronger, independent woman. Anthony was interesting in the beginning, who walks past a woman sleeping outside and carries them home and offers [...]


    • M.L Sparrow’s No Rest For The Wicked was not a book I could pass up given it’s synopsis, it reminded me of the “magic” of fairytales with a darker, more adult element I couldn’t wait to delve into. No Rest For The Wicked is not like any book I’ve read before, and I mean that in a good sense.I really enjoyed how the book pulled me in immediately, introducing both main characters almost instantly vs a long build up to the storyline. Immediately I was drawn to Elira’s character, she c [...]

The story starts off hauntingly engaging, and keeps you sucked into the amazing world! So much chemistry between the main characters: Anthony & Elira!

    • No Rest for the Wicked by M.L Sparrow4 Stars This book has a bit of everything; a bit of romance, some sex, drama and magic. I found this to be a light read. It was a sweet romance with nothing extreme. Not too much drama or too much sex; it had just the right combination. The story takes place in the 1800’s when there were strict rules in society. There was a large gap between classes and you weren’t supposed to mingle, let alone get into a relationship. Elira is very poor and grew up in an [...]
