Early Review: THE WARLOCK’S CURSE by M.K. Hobson

Early Review: THE WARLOCK’S CURSE by M.K. Hobson

October 29, 2012 Review 1

THE WARLOCK’S CURSE is a fascinating, dark, adventure story filled to the brim with steampunk science and technology. The first few chapters dragged a little but the second half of the story more than made up for the lackluster start with some startling revelations.

Early Review: A Trace of Moonlight (Abby Sinclair #3) by Allison Pang

Early Review: A Trace of Moonlight (Abby Sinclair #3) by Allison Pang

October 27, 2012 Review 1 ★★★★

The Abby Sinclair series has been on my radar for quite some time and I couldn’t let one more book slip past me without jumping in to try it for myself. Starting with book three posed some predictable problems as far as emotional reactions and catching up with the plot, but from the first chapter I knew I was going to finish A TRACE OF MOONLIGHT and rush back to A BRUSH OF DARKNESS to catch up.

Early Review: Mr. Real (Code of Shadows #1) by Carolyn Crane

Early Review: Mr. Real (Code of Shadows #1) by Carolyn Crane

October 23, 2012 Review 2 ★★★

There is nothing typical about the books Carolyn Crane writes. Without exception they are wildly imaginative, endlessly surprising, and utterly unique. That is no less true of her latest paranormal romance, MR. REAL, the first book in the new Code of Shadows series about a woman who inherits a magical computer capable of conjuring anything–or any one–to her doorstep.

Review: Ghost Planet by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Review: Ghost Planet by Sharon Lynn Fisher

October 22, 2012 Review 1 ★★★

Imagine stepping on to a new planet to find yourself accompanied by the flesh and blood embodiment of a ghost. Human, emotional, totally unaware of their own death or your loss. From that premise GHOST PLANET caught my eye, and after two chapters I was entirely hooked.
