Review: Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black

Review: Deadly Descendant by Jenna Black

Deadly Descendant proves without the shadow of a doubt that its author is brilliant.    And I am talking shining star tier.    It seems as I always say I will have to forget the last fifty or so pages that manage to miss the boat that the last three hundred were sailing me out […]

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

Review: Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

I basically had two separate lives growing up. My main life involved my nurse mother, my pharmacist (legal) father, and two of my three sisters, all living a suburban life just outside of Charlotte, NC. My secondary life involved my biological father and his entire family which was (they’ve since departed) headquartered in Bon Aqua (pronounced “ACK-qua”), TN. […]

Review: Taken By The Others by Jess Haines

Taken By The Others paces itself extraordinarily well.    Fight scenes, especially the crucial one, develop over the course of several chapters to give the feeling that both sides are taking significant loss and exposing themselves to significant danger.    Also don’t get me started on that ending, which quietly ties up the loose ends […]

We all have our favorites (and not-so-favorites). For me, if it has something to do with the Fae or Native American folklore, I’m probably […]

Review: Brazen by Kelley Armstrong

Review: Brazen by Kelley Armstrong

It’s been nearly two years now since Kelley Armstrong’s WOMEN OF THE OTHERWORLD series wrapped up, and I’ve been suffering from some serious werewolf withdrawals ever since. So, when I found out that Nick was getting his own novella I was absolutely ecstatic! I may have even gone a little overboard because I bought the […]

Review: Bloodfire by Helen Harper

Review: Bloodfire by Helen Harper

I’m not really sure how I stumbled across Helen Harper and her Blood Destiny series. I think I was in one of my Urban Fantasy funks (in which nothing but UF holds any kind of appeal, but I’ve read and re-read any of the mainstream, published UF that I’m interested in, and am desperate for […]

Review: Dying For a Living by Kory M. Shrum

Review: Dying For a Living by Kory M. Shrum

I found this book a couple of days ago and it was so different and readable that I could not put the book down. When the premise of a book causes me to ignore my huge “to be read” pile, you have to know I loved it. Jesse Sullivan is a rarity in this world […]
