Audiobook Review: Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole (@kresleycole)

Audiobook Review: Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole (@kresleycole)

When I heard the news that the ARCANA CHRONICLES were going to stretch two books longer than originally planned I feared that Kresley Cole’s sensational Young Adult trilogy was going to lose some of its shine. Listening to ARCANA RISING cured any doubts that I may have had about the author’s ability to prolong Evie […]

DNF Review: The Reburialists by J.C. Nelson

DNF Review: The Reburialists by J.C. Nelson

I’m going to keep this one short and simple. A couple years ago, I tried to read the first installment of Nelson’s GRIMM AGENCY series, Free Agent. It did not go well: “She didn’t look like a princess. She looked like a college intern for a radio station. Five foot three, strawberry blonde, and a […]

The plot was shaky, and seemed more […]

This installment was probably one of the hottest thus far, but that actually worked against KISS OF […]

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: Taken By The Others by Jess Haines

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 […]
