Review: In the Air Tonight by Lori Handeland

Review: In the Air Tonight by Lori Handeland

Raye Larsen is a twenty-seven year old kindergarten teacher. She lives in the same small town she grew up in, the same small town where she has never fit in (b/c typical small town nonsense). Raye is adopted, you see, and in addition to having dark hair and eyes in a town of blonde-haired, blue-eyed […]

Review: Eighth Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones

Review: Eighth Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones

This was the first time that I’ve read a CHARLEY DAVIDSON novel, so I was a little worried that the story just wouldn’t be the same without Lorelei King’s narration, and yes I did miss her sultry voice (audiobook’s been pre-ordered!), but I regret nothing. EIGHTH GRAVE AFTER DARK was the installment that I’ve been […]

Review: Bloodshifted by Cassie Alexander

Review: Bloodshifted by Cassie Alexander

  Had this been a regular installment in Cassie Alexander’s EDIE SPENCE series, I probably would have given it 5 stars because the story was well laid out, and the vamp-y action top notch. However, BLOODSHIFTED is also the last book, and as a result, I had to judge it as such. As far as […]

Review: Deadshifted by Cassie Alexander

The EDIE SPENCE series has been all over the map for me; it took a while for me to get into the story line but after giving the last installment 5 stars, I thought that Cassie Alexander had finally hit her stride. Unfortunately in DEADSHIFTED’s case it was more of a one step forward and […]

Review: Shapeshifted by Cassie Alexander

Review: Shapeshifted by Cassie Alexander

You know what they say; the third time is the charm and that definitely holds true with Shapeshifted, book three in Cassie Alexander’s Edie Spence series. In the previous two installments Edie was a noob in the paranormal world, struggling to make sense out of vampires and werewolves, but in this novel she finds herself […]

Review: Moonshifted by Cassie Alexander

Review: Moonshifted by Cassie Alexander

Cassie Alexander has really hit her stride with this second installment by adding werewolves into her unique para-medical world. The story is richly detailed, the plot is complex and Edie Spence is absolutely delightful. Moonshifted offers a fresh perspective on a popularized genre by combining nursing with dark humor and wackiness to create a winning […]

Review: Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander

Review: Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander

The main character and the fact that the next installment is called Moonshifted (i.e. werewolves!) are the first things that caught my eye and convinced me to read this title. A human female heroine is a rare bird in Urban Fantasy; they’re normally all about leather/swords and, one that’s a nurse in a paranormal hospital […]
