Review: Black Magic Bayou by Sierra Dean

Review: Black Magic Bayou by Sierra Dean

I’m having a hard time not comparing Genie McQueen to her older sister, Secret. Not only do they share DNA, but they are both half-breeds, have a knack for trouble, and with the introduction of Santiago, another love triangle is most likely already in progress. I was on the fence after BAYOU BLUES, and now […]

Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (@jessicadhaluska)

Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (@jessicadhaluska)

Richelle Mead is one of those authors who’s grown on me, slowly but steadily, since I first discovered her ten(ish) years ago. At this point, I’ve pretty much read everything she’s written (BLOODLINES being the one exception), but for whatever reason, she’s never one of my obvious choices whenever someone asks me who my favorite […]

Review: Made for Sin by Stacia Kane

Review: Made for Sin by Stacia Kane

Stacia Kane has been taunting readers with the prospect of a new DOWNSIDE GHOSTS novel for FAR too long by constantly referencing “book 6” in blog posts, listing the release date as TBA on her website, and don’t even get me started on GoodReads’ catalogue entry. So, when MADE FOR SIN was announced, I jumped […]

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

It’s rare to get a really good first installment in an urban fantasy series—too much stuff has to happen. You’ve got world-building, laying the foundation for the series arc while telling an individual story that’s compelling by itself, character development, etc. All preferably in 40k words or less. On occasion, it does happen, but most […]
