FLIRTING UNDER A FULL MOON looked and sounded like a super cute paranormal romance. Unfortunately, I was more than a little let down after reading this book, since it was pretty much a boilerplate paranormal romance with frustrating main characters and a boring, forgettable plot.
Shana Abe has an unmistakeable lilt, a mystery and music to her writing that transcends individual stories and knits together the whole. Like Robin McKinley, Abe lets time and distance deepen the mysteries between her books, she employs the realistic vagaries of history to make each new story a haunting new landscape.
Got some really hard to kill vampires? Jane Yellowrock can get that job done and then some. In BLOOD TRADE Jane comes back with a vengeance from some difficult circumstances in the previous book. She’s not in a good place during the start of BLOOD TRADE
When a book is described as ‘The Goddess Test meets Dexter’ it gets shoved to the very top of my TBR pile. What could be better than a teenage serial killer hunting down human monsters with the help of the Furies from Greek Mythology? It’s such an amazing premise that unfortunately fell just a little flat.
WITH ALL MY SOUL is the final book in Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series, and it’s an ambitious, go for broke, book. Half the characters have died and been brought back in some form or another, others have been violated and deceived in inexcusable ways, and the few that have managed to grab on to love have left a trail of bitter broken hearts in their wake. And yet, this is the book that promises, and mostly delivers, a happy ending.
When I started WOLF WITH BENEFITS, based on the title and the cover, I was excepting cheesy paranormal romance. And, to be fair, though WOLF WITH BENEFITS is a bit cheesy, it’s also clever, fun, and a really enjoyable read, with some great characters and laugh out loud moments.

KITTY ROCKS THE HOUSE proves that Kitty is one tough and creative werewolf. She’s trying to be a stern but fair alpha, dealing with the vampires’ Long Game, and hosting her radio show. The Kitty Norville series isn’t just foreboding vampire and werewolf politics but also has a quirky strain of humor especially with Kitty’s radio show callers.
There is no denying the technicolor beauty of Vicki Pettersson’s rockabilly heroine, Kit Craig. Each crisp, thoughtful detail brings the scent, feel, and lush sensuality of her perspective to life. In THE LOST, however, Pettersson reveals the fragility beneath Kit’s meticulous habits, the dark correllary of her structured world.
