Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Review: Darkness & Light by J.A. Belfield

Darkness & Light starts off with Jem married to this a$$hole named Peter. Her husband didn’t begin this story as a complete jerk but the speed at which he progressed from “there’s something off about this guy” to full-out “run for your life!” was staggering. I found it weird that it took 8 years for Peter’s crazy to surface in their marriage. Mind you, Jem seemed a little out there as well but in a wolf-like kind of way so I was ok with that.

Josh Reviews: Afterlight by Elle Jasper

Josh Reviews: Afterlight by Elle Jasper

Afterlight shines as a first person narrative with characteristic vocabulary (afterlight, da hell stone, da Island, heiniesca) and variable chronology.   Riley Poe, our vector into this Gothic interior, has been there once before as a devil-may-care youth but when her brother awakens old bloodsuckers, gets bitten, and is quickened, she must go down there to […]

Sue Reviews: Fiery Edge of Steel by Jill Archer

Sue Reviews: Fiery Edge of Steel by Jill Archer

Noon’s story picked up nicely in this second instalment of the Urban Fantasy series Fiery Edge of Steel by Jill Archer. I welcomed being thrown back into this unique medieval post-apocalyptic story. If you haven’t read the first book, stop right now and read it. This second book could be a stand alone as it […]

Review: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

I’ve always enjoyed Andrea’s character in the Kate Daniels series but other than her gun fetish she comes across as being a little too tame to be able to be a bona fide Urban Fantasy heroine. In Gunmetal Magic, we see an entirely different side to her because now she’s free from The Order’s rules and trying to embrace her beastkin blood.

Question: What Makes A Long Term Couple Keep Sizzling?

Question: What Makes A Long Term Couple Keep Sizzling?

I think it’s important for couples to keep things fresh regardless of whether they are fictional or not. Boredom and complacency are two of the biggest relationship killers. A couple still needs to be able to surprise each other even after years or, as is the case in paranormal fiction, millenia together. It doesn’t have […]

Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Logan and Gwen’s long awaited first date finally takes place but as expected, in true Frost fashion, it blows up spectacularly. Too bad that spilling coffee onto the Spartan’s lap is the least of her problems. Gwen’s first meeting with her beau’s dad doesn’t exactly go well either; overprotective parents are one thing but arresting […]
