Sometimes I get tired of reading stories where the vampire or the werewolf is the protagonist, or the love interest of the protagonist. Sometimes I just want monsters to be monsters. Horrible creatures of the night that need to be killed. If you feel the same way then look no further than GRUNGE.
With a big name like Margaret Atwood, I was expecting something a bit more profound from Angel Catbird, even with the ridiculous title and premise. Unfortunately, I was left incredibly disappointed in what was a predictable, preachy book that although marketed to adults, I wouldn’t recommend to anyone over 13.
PIT PERFECT is a delightfully cozy supernatural mystery story. I enjoyed the different turns the story took in making you question everyone’s motives at some point (except Smooshie, Lily’s adorable dog).
Dark and light, detailed objects and Urban Fantasy heroes, this week’s covers span the gamut.
The Jane Yellowrock books have the distinction of being a long running series that I can’t keep track of at all but enjoy from book to book. I don’t know what makes details slide away, the similarity of Jane’s nicknames for people? The complexity of mythologies that always underpin the “big reveal” at the end? I know Ricky is gone (in a rather unsatisfying way), Jane and Beast are partners, and vampires are dangerous. Additional details are refreshed in the opening chapters.
THE FATE OF THE TEARLING left me with lots of feelings. The first two-thirds of the book were rock-star. And, to be fair, the last third of the book was good too, it just wasn’t what I was expecting. So, without spoiling anything, I am going to try to review this book for you. First of all, if you read the first two, definitely read the third. You’ll want the closure that it provides. And if you haven’t read the first two, I definitely recommend them. The trilogy has a very different feel than a lot of other fantasy trilogies, to its benefit.
A Wolf Unleashed keeps the action high and the romance steamy for the duration of the book. With dog-fighting rings, a hot new drug that’s killing people at an alarming rate and a spat of college girls going missing, there’s a lot for the Dallas SWAT team to be involved with, even if their supervisors would rather they just break doors down on command. Too bad these shifters can smell trouble coming a mile away.
A Field Guide to Fantastical Beasts: An Atlas of Fabulous Creatures, Enchanted Beings, and Magical Monsters is a wonderfully illustrated book filled with descriptions of mostly familiar mythical creatures.

There are so many fun surprises in LEGAL WOLF’S MATE that I was grinning the whole time I was reading it. The characters are fun, the mystery is just weird enough to be interesting, and the romance is smoking hot.
In a world where only men can be werewolves, the women who they love need to be strong. Gavin isn’t sure that Megan is strong enough to deal with being a wolf’s mate, but as soon as he sees her sitting in his waiting room, he knows he has to have her.
