A big welcome to Kristi Charish who is here telling us about the 80s movies that influenced her Owl series and celebrating the release of Owl and the City of Angels, Adventures of Owl #2 (published on October 15, 2015 by Pocket Star). Kristi Charish’s Influential 80s Movies As some of you may (or may not) know, one of the major influences on my writing has been action adventure movies- particularly of the 1980’s variety. When I started writing, my love of those campy, adventure happy movies was what pushed me to write Owl. Rather than concentrate on the big hitters- Star Wars, Indiana Jones, The… Read more »
We’re really excited to have Cam Baity and Benny Zelkowicz here to reveal the cover of their latest book, THE SECOND BOOK OF ORE: WAYBOUND. Check out how gorgeous this cover is! Plus, we have some comments from Cam and Benny and an excerpt!
Perhaps because it didn’t involve jetting around the globe, FAIR WEATHER felt shorter than the first two episodes of the BookBurners. Still, it packs a few fun surprises that nearly had me cheering.
Kim and Kristina offer their opinions on this week’s batch of covers, take a look and see if you agree with them.
See all the DNF posts We do our best to only accept books for review that we think we will enjoy, but it is impossible to safeguard 100% against bad reads. These are the books we Did Not Finish (DNF). We do not give up on books lightly.

Like with many anthologies, DEMONS, IMPS, AND INCUBI hosts an array of different stories, some I liked a lot and some I was kind of bored with or didn’t ‘get’. They all share stories of people encountering demons, imps, and incubi who end up in various sorts of intense, hot moments.
Thief’s Covenant is an amazing young adult novel, one of the best I’ve read this year. This book is a very dark young adult book, and because of that I feel a lot of adults will be able to appreciate this story as well.
UNDEAD AND UNFORGIVEN is yet another wild and crazy entry in the hilarious and busy Undead series. This being the second last book in the series means there is really no slowing down for a breath in the story. I loved every crazy page of this book and I really want to know just where this story is going and how it’s going to end because I haven’t a clue.
The Remy Chandler series is one of those that started out really strong, but has started to fizzle out as it continues. A DEAFENING SILENCE IN HEAVEN was a little bit of an improvement over the last three books, but not by much.
