DNF Roundup: Black City Saint by Richard A. Knaak, Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter, and Wicked as They Come by Delilah Devlin

DNF Roundup: Black City Saint by Richard A. Knaak, Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter, and Wicked as They Come by Delilah Devlin

The kindle cleanup continues! Despite all of these falling somewhere under the UF/PNR umbrella, they’re a diverse bunch, if only in my expectations. DNF at 16%. BLACK CITY SAINT was one of my most anticipated new UFs. With a description involving Fae, dragons, and prohibition era Chicago, how could it not be? However . . […]

Audiobook Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

Audiobook Review: Cursed by Destiny by Cecy Robson

The WEIRD GIRLS series appears to be moving further away from Urban Fantasy territory, and more into the Paranormal Romance zone with every installment. Celia & Aric’s romance has taken center stage, and the amount of action is on the decline. Now, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, just not what I expected when I […]

DNF Review: The Reburialists by J.C. Nelson

DNF Review: The Reburialists by J.C. Nelson

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: Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr

Review: Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr

I’ve been rereading a few of my old favorites in preparation for NOLA StoryCon, and if it wasn’t for the tediousness of Aislinn and Keenan, FRAGILE ETERNITY, the third installment of Melissa Marr’s WICKED LOVELY series, would have been close to a five star read. As it is, it’s still my favorite thus far (by […]
