Review: Silver by Rhiannon Held

Review: Silver by Rhiannon Held

I’m always on the look-out for new spins on werewolves so I decided to give Rhiannon Held’s a try by reading her debut novel, SILVER. My feelings on this book are pretty much split right down the middle; I loved the heroine and her mad ravings, and the mythology drew me in, but the story […]

Review: Angel Kin by Tricia Skinner

Review: Angel Kin by Tricia Skinner

The opening scene in Tricia Skinner’s new ANGEL ASSASSIN series is as disturbing as it is good, in that oh my god I NEED to know more kind of way. Katie’s race to stay alive starts on page one, and doesn’t let up until the epilogue, and even then it’s clear that she’s still not […]

Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

I was born and raised in the South. My husband was too, but he’s not a real Southerner—his father is from San Francisco, and his mother is from Michigan. They moved to Georgia from up north a few years before the hubs was born, bringin’ their Northern and West Coast ways with them. Not that […]

Audiobook Review: On the Edge by Ilona Andrews

Audiobook Review: On the Edge by Ilona Andrews

In a lot of ways this book felt like the Fantasy equivalent of Paranormal Romance; it’s less action-y than Ilona Andrews’ KATE DANIELS series, but the sex scenes are not left to the imagination (unlike in Urban Fantasy) and the strong world-building continues to be at the forefront of their writing. The romance is as […]

Review: Generation V by M.L. Brennan

Review: Generation V by M.L. Brennan

I want to say upfront that this book rocked my socks off. It REALLY did—most potential I’ve seen in a new(ish) UF series in a LONG friggin’ time. Don’t forget that. Fortitude Scott is a pushover. He lets his coworkers dump their responsibilities on him without uttering a word of protest, his roommate isn’t paying […]

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Kevin Hearne

I first discovered how amazing this series was in audio at the end of November of last year, and I’ve been listening to a book every two weeks ever since. And, as much as I’ve enjoyed each new installment, I haven’t had the urge to say “holy shit that was good” since HOUNDED, until now. […]

Audiobook Review: White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland

Audiobook Review: White Trash Zombie Apocalypse by Diana Rowland

I’ll be honest, I was concerned whether I’d like this installment after having found the previous one a tad too over-the-top in the zombie conspiracies department, and also lacking in classic Angel moments because—let’s face it—I read this series mainly for her crass humour. WHITE TRASH ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE has a nice mix of both, so […]
