A very creative take on the Snow White fairy tale, STITCHING SNOW has a brilliant heroine coupled with a stubborn and honorable hero, taking place in what appears to be a galaxy, far far away. While some of the plot points were a bit predictable, it was a diverting read, and a fun way to spend a few hours.
Though the world of SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch is a bit uninspired in its construction, Raasch more than makes up for kingdoms named after seasons and capital cities named for misspelled calendar months with Meira and the other refugees of the Kingdom of Winter. An aspiring soldier, desperate to be important to her people and her lost homeland, sixteen-year-old Meira struggles with being kept off the battlefield and forced into a world of political machinations. She’s a pawn, she’s a symbol, she’s a hero – much like THE HUNGER GAMES Katniss, all Meira really knows is that she wants to survive. That, and she’s in love with her best friend, the once and future king.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from CHASING POWER, especially after reading the summary. The female lead is a thief and the male lead blackmails her into helping him on a quest. Not exactly the sort of thing I usually jump into reading. Still, I chose it for review and gave it a shot. Turned out to be a very good decision.

At slightly over 400 overwhelming pages, WHISPER THE DEAD took a few chapters for me to fully immerse myself. Once I did, however, I was rewarded with a mystery that managed to be consequential and yet a story that felt lighthearted, all at once.
Ardent fans of Patricia Briggs may have already pieced together parts of this collection, housed in beat up paperbacks and anthologies already published. To have these existing stories and more gathered and carefully arranged by series timeline, makes this lovely hardback a treasure for any collector to have on the shelf.
A HIGHLAND WOLF CHRISTMAS is a wonderfully sweet holiday romance stock full of kilted Scotsmen who relish in sword fighting and castles with many a hidden nook to have your romantic trysts in. Both Calla and Guthrie are featured in previous book in this series so it was neat to finally see more of these two and learn more about their lives.
A big welcome to Terry Spear who is here to telling us what to get a werewolf for Christmas and celebrating the release of A Highland Wolf Christmas, Heart of the Wolf #15 (published on October 7, 2014 by Sourcebooks Casablanca). What to Get a Werewolf for Christmas by Terry Spear It’s important to remember that werewolves are only human, and well, a lot wolfish. So in truth, their gifts should be based on who they are, and what they like, not based on what they are. In A SEAL Wolf Christmas, Bjornolf is a SEAL team member and Anna an undercover operative.
