Shyla Colt is a sassy USA Today bestselling author with a rebellious streak that leads her to genre hop. Regardless of the genre you'll find these three things in her stories: strong females, pop culture, and alternate routes to happy ever after.


Listening to her Romani soul, she pens from the heart, allowing the dynamic characters, eccentric interests, and travels as a former flight attendant to take her down untraveled roads. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, this mid-west girl is proud of her roots.



 As a full-time writer, stay at home mother, and wife, there's never a dull moment in her household.She weaves her tales in spare moments and the evenings with a cup of coffee or tea at her side and the characters in her head for company.

I walked into this blind and found myself pleasantly surprised by the fresh fairytale re imagining. This isn't your mother's fairytale, yet it remains familiar. The illustrations were beautiful, and it had a slight creep factor that reminded me of the original Grimm fa...

After the amazing experience I has with Six of Crows, this was a bit of a let down, starting with the first pov I'm still not sure we needed. There were alot of places that felt bogged down by unnecessary information, or drawn out scenes. I has a tough time getting th...

This just keeps getting better. I saw so much growth for Lada. She's hard-headed, but can be taught. I needed to see that progression with her. I also got to see her be vulnerable, and perhaps not feminine, but recognize that female side of herself. She had to make som...

This was a family soap opera with swords, tragedy, brutality, and historical accuracy. 

I'd expect nothing else with the children of Vlad the Impaler. Getting to see a female lead , Lada, be so strong, ruthless, and yet human at the same time was incredible. 

I was a...

I was so excited to read this story. I mean, who hasn't' wanted to go into a book! Well, Emme has that ability. But the circumstances surrounding her discovery of this odd power leave her shaken and lost.

Raised by her grandparents after the death of her pare...

This blew book one out of the water. Wow. I'm still on a reading high! Maas took me on an emotional roller coaster with this one. I was angry for Feyre and so upset that she let certain things happen. Seeing the fight and light dim, slayed me. I don't want to b...
