Release Day Review:  Wild Cat (Leopard People #8) by Christine Feehan

Release Day Review: Wild Cat (Leopard People #8) by Christine Feehan

November 24, 2015 Review 0 ★★

When I closed this book I had to take some time to process my feeling on it before writing down my thoughts. I enjoy shifter romances and am typically able to reason with the aggressive and violent nature of the heroes due to their being half-animal. Sometimes the attitudes of the heroes can be a bit much and the sex a bit too domineering for my tastes but usually that’s balanced out with the heroine’s ability to stand up for herself and the hero’s ability to know when to calm down or back off.

While DANCE WITH THE DEVIL is the first in a series, there was so much backstory as to how the warring packs got to where they are at the start of the story that I think there should be some sort of short story to go before this book. What we get told about the past is fascinating and complex and this conflict between the packs is what the main plot of DANCE WITH THE DEVIL revolves around.

November 19, 2015 Review 5 ★★★★

ICE MOON is a fun paranormal romance with an interesting central story and conflict. While I was a bit annoyed/sad that Taryn wouldn’t even touch her son which probably isn’t going to be good for his emotional development in the future (in reality, I’m sure he’ll be fine in this series!), I liked seeing the reason behind her ‘no touching’ rule unravel as the story progressed.

Review: Look Both Ways (Witch City Mystery #3) by Carol J. Perry

November 17, 2015 Review 0 ★★

I tend to like reading mysteries and ones with an infusion of magic are even better. Unfortunately, I felt like I was forcing myself to finish LOOK BOTH WAYS. It had a lot of good elements to it including a murder to solve, hidden diamonds, and lots of suspects to choose from to make it a fun whodunit.

THE CASQUETTE GIRLS is a fascinating and haunting paranormal YA novel. The plot starts off a tad slow though once it gets started it really moves. It’s a tale that takes some of New Orleans’ more famous ghost and vampire stories and gives them an even more sinister bent. I loved the setting as its a city so entrenched in mystery and has its own very colorful history.

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

5bat! Audiobook Review: The Assassins of Altis (The Pillars of Reality #3) by Jack Campbell

November 16, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★★

THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS starts right where THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR left off, and the action, romance, and political intrigue of the previous books continues superbly in this one. My number one fear for THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS was that the plot would start to stall. I’ve seen this happen with a lot of books like this, but Jack Campbell clearly has the whole Pillars of Reality series thoroughly plotted out, because I never felt it stall.

Release Day Review: Sweep in Peace (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews

Release Day Review: Sweep in Peace (Innkeeper Chronicles #2) by Ilona Andrews

November 13, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★★

I’m sorry if I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but I want to start this review off by once again complimenting the amazing artwork of Doris Mantair. And along with the fantastic cover art Ilona Andrews also commissioned another four pieces of art that are scattered throughout SWEEP IN PEACE. I really wish that more books did that. It’s easier to do now that so many people read ebooks, and it brings the story to life a little bit more. Though Ilona Andrews really doesn’t need any help bringing the story to life.

Review:  Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

Review: Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

November 12, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Pale Moon Walking is a brilliant blend of the Wild West and aliens and at the center a strong romance between two very tough, independent characters. We have gunslingers, small desert towns mixed with government conspiracies, military experimentation, and mysterious aliens.
