Having just finished FEUDS I’m having a problem – I’m still not entirely sure what it was about. Set in the future, check. Dystopian, also check. There are Priors, there are Gens/Imps, and they sort of co-exist. Except when they don’t. There’s an imminent election and whispers of a disease. And an underground fight club deal that can save a family from life in the slums. Somehow.
Just when I thought the October Daye series couldn’t get any better, along comes THE WINTER LONG. Gathering so many hints and threads and portents, this book is one delicious secret after another coming undone.

NIGHT’S HONOR leaves the usual Elder Races Wyrkind behind and takes us within the cloistered walls of the Vampyre enclaves. More of a classic romance and straight up thriller than anything else, Tess and Xavier Dave danger from a few avenues before the action spills back out into the greater world of Elder Races politics.
Flirty and fun, ANTE UP is a great installment in the Sin City Collectors series. With badass witch Sofia, and superbly alpha Diesel, ANTE UP offers a combination of heroine and hero who are made for each other.
While fun, THE HOUSE OF THE FOUR WINDS was an action packed smorgasbord of a novel, full of random plot arcs and frequently undeveloped characters. It was as if the authors didn’t know what they wanted to write – fantasy, romance, adventure – and tried to smash everything into one book. Though fast paced and never boring, THE HOUSE OF THE FOUR WINDS nevertheless suffered for it.
This is one of those times I have to step back from a book that had me chair-dancing in glee and not rate it based on the end-of-book squeeage I felt, but to search for a little objectivity in my review. Reaction alone, this would be a five plus. Plus a few more.

A big welcome to Jenn Lyons who is here to telling us what she learned from writing Blood Chimera and celebrating the release of Blood Chimera, (published on August 12, 2014 by World Weaver Press). What I Learned From Writing Blood Chimera by Jenn Lyons How to Finish Stuff This was a big deal for me, you understand. Blood Chimera was my third novel (technically, it was my fifth, but those first two trunk novels shall never rise from the crypts where they lie buried and tied up with chains.) I hadn’t finished the first two either, but was stuck in ruts on… Read more »
