Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Darkness & Light starts off with Jem married to this a$$hole named Peter. Her husband didn’t begin this story as a complete jerk but the speed at which he progressed from “there’s something off about this guy” to full-out “run for your life!” was staggering. I found it weird that it took 8 years for Peter’s crazy to surface in their marriage. Mind you, Jem seemed a little out there as well but in a wolf-like kind of way so I was ok with that.

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

I’ve always enjoyed Andrea’s character in the Kate Daniels series but other than her gun fetish she comes across as being a little too tame to be able to be a bona fide Urban Fantasy heroine. In Gunmetal Magic, we see an entirely different side to her because now she’s free from The Order’s rules and trying to embrace her beastkin blood.

Gwen’s first meeting with her beau’s dad doesn’t exactly go well either; overprotective parents are one thing but arresting […]

Audio Review: Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews

Audio Review: Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews

Please excuse me a moment while I pick my jaw up off the floor so that I can write yet another glowing review for the Kate Daniels series. Magic Slays packs one heck of a punch with so much action, intrigue and comedy that you’ll be strongly tempted to do it all over again when you’re done.

Review: Alpha Girl by Kate Bloomfield

Review: Alpha Girl by Kate Bloomfield

I was strangely drawn to this book; I love werewolves and have yet to read anything shelved under New Adult but the taboo Student / Teacher relationship was definitely a concern. Curiosity eventually got the best of me and I just couldn’t resist anymore. And then, I simply could not look away. This novel did […]

Audio Review: Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

Audio Review: Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews

When Magic Strikes ended with concrete plans of a naked dinner date between Kate and Curran in the near future I knew that Magic Bleeds would not disappoint. Not that any of Ilona Andrews’ books ever have but this installment pushed me from enthused reader into full-out fangirl territory and surprisingly enough, it wasn’t even […]
