Audiobook Review: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

Audiobook Review: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

This was my first Kresley Cole book—I know, I know, someone slap me! Her IMMORTALS AFTER DARK series has been on my radar for a while now thanks to Melanie from Hot Listens who reminds me DAILY that it features sexy Scottish werewolves (my kryptonite), but then Jennifer from The Book Nympho started getting on […]

Review: A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest

Review: A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest

This book is absolutely incredible. I’ve read it once before, about a year ago, and I really wanted to finish the series so I thought I would re-read this one and I loved it as much as I did the first time. The writing style is very easy and fast paced but it also has […]

Review: Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (@jessicadhaluska, @SJMaas)

NO SPOILERS. Heir of Fire begins with Celaena lazing about on a rooftop in Wendlyn’s capital city, drinking cheap wine (that she stole) from a jug, and feeling sorry for herself.

Review: Descend by Skye Malone

Review: A New Darkness by Joseph Delaney

Review: A New Darkness by Joseph Delaney

When I saw this book available for review, I leapt at it. I’ve been meaning to start Delaney’s The Last Apprentice series forever, but was, once again, daunted by the number of installments (13, not including the various bonus stories). In A New Darkness, I thought I’d found the perfect solution—I’d get to see what […]

Review: Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier

Review: Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier

I wasn’t very impressed with the first installment of this trilogy . . . BUT I’m a big enough fan of Marillier, and I saw enough glimpses of the excellence I’ve come to expect from her, that it wasn’t too difficult to make myself continue with the series. I. Am. SO glad. Raven Flight was everything […]
