Release Day Review: Spider’s Trap (Elemental Assassin #13) by Jennifer Estep

July 28, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★

In SPIDER’S TRAP Gin is in a new position of power with some different problems to deal with including the not so different constant threats of death. I enjoyed seeing how she dealt with more of Ashland’s underworld, especially since she has been dragged into the center of it and so obviously doesn’t want to be involved. Most of these seedy underworld sort of folk are handled pretty easily with a helping of death by Spider.

Review: The Artisans (The Artisans #1) by Julie Reece

Review: The Artisans (The Artisans #1) by Julie Reece

July 27, 2015 Review 0 ★★

In the original description I read of THE ARTISANS, this crucial sentence was at the end: “The Artisans is a delectably rich, layered and dark YA Southern Gothic inspired by Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s classic Beauty and the Beast.” Generally anything promising a retelling of Beauty and the Beast (my favorite fairytale) is an instant win for me. And while I can definitely see the parallels between THE ARTISANS and Beauty and the Beast, THE ARTISANS had quite a bit more going on, that in fact, at times I felt like there was almost too much going on.

I love paranormal romance books that don’t take themselves too seriously. I always find that it’s easier to get through a book when I am laughing, and BABY’S GOT BITE had plenty of humour and ridiculous situations in it while still managing to have believable characters and truly emotional scenes.

The Influence of Ray Bradbury in Television

The Influence of Ray Bradbury in Television

July 24, 2015 Guests 0

Ray Bradbury’s unique blend of fantasy and human reaction to the seemingly impossible first delighted and intrigued television audiences in the early 1950s when several of his stories were adapted for popular anthology shows of the day, including CBS Television Workshop, Tales of Tomorrow and Alfred Hitchcock Presents. While an argument can be made that the influence of The Martian Chronicles author easily transcends all forms of media, there is no question that the “Poet of Pulp” has had an influence on how science fiction and fantasy are portrayed on television – an influence that’s still clearly evident in some of today’s small screen offerings.

SILVER IN THE BLOOD was a book I was very much looking forward to reading. The beautiful cover and author alone (I loved DRAGON SLIPPERS) was enough to intrigue me, and I didn’t even bother reading the description. So going in a bit blind, I was very happy when SILVER IN THE BLOOD lived up to my expectations.

Review: Bridged By Love (Kagan Wolves #1) by Nancy Corrigan

Review: Bridged By Love (Kagan Wolves #1) by Nancy Corrigan

July 20, 2015 Review 2 ★★

I tend to like my books quite spicy – and I used to think the more sex the better. Well, I’ve been proven wrong, and in a werewolf novel to boot. Although the sex scenes in BRIDGED BY LOVE were well written, I really could have done with way less of them. By the end of the book, I was skipping pages of erections and orgasms – more story, please!
