Review: The Transference Engine by Julia Verne St. John

Review: The Transference Engine by Julia Verne St. John

July 8, 2016 Review 1 ★★★

I think a lot of readers like to imagine a world in which they could own their own cafe/bookstore, or maybe I’m just weird thinking that would be cool. But that’s what made me pick up THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE, a story about someone who owns her own cafe/bookstore in a steampunk world sounded pretty awesome. Few books get me as interested in them as THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE did just by reading the synopsis, however, it wasn’t quite as good as I wanted it to be.

Review: Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing (Billionaire Wolf #1), by Terry Spears

Review: Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing (Billionaire Wolf #1), by Terry Spears

July 8, 2016 Review 0 ★★

This book was almost entertaining, but between the blatant use of romance tropes and the saccharine quality of the plot with made my stomach turn, I was annoyed with it by the time I put it down. If this was the first paranormal romance book I’d ever read, I would have never picked up another.

Werewolves not necessary to this story, and it would have probably been an okay suspense romance without it – in fact, it probably would have been better for me. The key mythology issue was so badly introduced that I didn’t really understand any of the characters’ motivations for the first half of the book.

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

July 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.

A big welcome to Andrea Phillips who is here answering a few questions and celebrating the release of Webs, Bookburners Season 2 Episode 2 (published on June 29, 2016 by Serial Box). Interview with Andrea Phillips All Things Urban Fantasy: What is it like being one of many authors to work on the serial? Who gets to decide on the overall plot, or is that something everybody has a say in? Andrea Phillips: I love it with a fierceness that other people reserve for things like chocolate or maybe their families. Thanks to the way we run a show, we all get a say in… Read more »

Review: Webs (Bookburners #2.2) by Andrea Phillips

Review: Webs (Bookburners #2.2) by Andrea Phillips

June 30, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

Although not as enjoyable as CREEPY TOWN, WEBS did an excellent job of advancing the plot of team two’s explorations of magic, and offered a brief glimpse into the history of the Bookburners (or Societas Librorum Occultorum, as I suppose it’s called).

Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

June 28, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

With it’s strong hero and sweet heroine, SHADOW RIDER checks off many of the boxes that I love in a romance, plus, it takes place in Chicago! Though not the focus, Feehan has created an interesting mythology, and given the reader side characters’ stories to look forward to as well!
