I wasn’t sure what to expect from HUNTER. On the surface it had all my happy buttons pushed – witches and magic and romance. Seemed like a perfect match. And for the most part, it was.
The trend in pushing YA Paranormal towards the unique seems to be continuing and WHITE HOT KISS is no exception. This time, we have demons but pitted against them? Not angels. That would be so last year.
Where the previous books in the St. Croix Chronicles were fast paced with danger and dangerous people lurking around every corner, TEMPERED deals with more internal battles and emotional trauma. Cherry has gone through so much externally dealing with the Veil and Society it felt fitting to have a story spend some time dealing with the internal effects of what happened to Cherry.
A fantastic addition to the urban fantasy world, the Silver series adds a hint of magic to a robust and realistic world. More than just battling villains and hooking up, these books deal with disability, loss, prejudice, and power struggles on both the global and family level. Held’s characters are immeasurably enriched by their wolf-selves, but their struggles and feelings are firmly grounded in a familiar, human world.

Along with a rollicking good and at times hilarious story WITCH INTERRUPTED puts a keen twist on werewolf and witch mythology that is so different from what I’m used to that I had to go back and re-read sections just to get it all straight. The fact that I had to go back is not a criticism so much as a comment on how attached to the
NIGHT OWLS is the start of a fun new urban fantasy series that will likely appeal to the book worm in all of us (and if you’re here, you probably like books at least as much as I do). Starring a vampire who runs a bookstore and a cast of other quirky characters, it’s quite original with a lot to like.
ALL THAT GLOWS is exactly what a thirteen year old Kate would look for in a book. We have a faerie heroine who falls in love with a British prince (beautiful girl – check!
