Audiobook Review: Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn

Audiobook Review: Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn

Every hard hitting Urban Fantasy heroine deserves some down time, but Norville hasn’t exactly done enough to warrant an extended stay at a mountain cabin in my opinion, and she definitely hasn’t reached memoirs status yet. KITTY TAKES A HOLIDAY is only installment #3 after all. Carrie Vaughn attempted to fast track this series, and […]

Audiobook Review: Outtakes from the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (@Jeaniene_Frost, @taviagilbert, @BlackstoneAudio)

Nothing beats discovering an anthology, novella or deleted scene from one of your top Urban Fantasy series unless it’s finding all three-in-one AND doing so two years after you thought that you’d been forever limited to cameo appearances in spin-off worlds. It’s important to note that some of the chapters in OUTTAKES FROM THE GRAVE […]

Review: Replica by Shannon Mayer and Denise Grover Swank

Review: Replica by Shannon Mayer and Denise Grover Swank

The multiple “I” writing style is still not my favourite, but the addition of a […]

Review: Recombinant by Shannon Mayer and Denise Grover Swank

Being very familiar with Shannon Mayer’s work, but not at all with Denise Grove Swank’s, I knew that my feelings vis-à-vis the two protagonists and writing styles could potentially be divided. The premise of RECOMBINANT suited my tastes completely with its iron fueled heroines—a vampire turned Cazador and a ballsy reporter—and action driven plot; however […]

Review: Through the Veil by Colleen Halverson

Review: Through the Veil by Colleen Halverson

THROUGH THE VEIL had some really superb aspects and a few incomprehensible ones which is why my rating is split right down the middle. The world-building was extensive with its fusion of American, Irish and Fae cultures along with the implicit politics that the latter brings without fail. Elizabeth, the heroine, came out swinging which […]

Review: Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop (@AceRocBooks)

Review: Marked in Flesh by Anne Bishop (@AceRocBooks)

MARKED IN FLESH set out to be the defining installment in the entente between humankind and the terra indigene, and being somewhat familiar with Anne Bishop’s predilection for carnage, I knew full well that no cast member was going to come out on the other side unscathed. This book was astonishingly successful in its aim; […]
