THE DESCENT is the is the final capstone on a series that explores humanity, immortality, morality, and the nature of love. Not for readers in search of a happily-ever-after, the entire Taker Trilogy is wolf in urban fantasy clothing, teasing readers with an epic romance only to explore the depraved depths and banal heights which humanity achieves

Back in the day, superheroes could just be super. Now stories about people with powers all struggle to answer the same question: how would a group of super beings get by in this modern world of 24-hour news networks and jaded capitalism? Christopher E. Long attempts to answer this question in his debut young adult novel, HERO WORSHIP.
With many anthologies it tends to be hit or miss depending on which short story I am reading in it. DARK DUETS has an excellent idea with authors pairing up to write some seriously dark urban fantasy tales.
As I settled down for some high seas adventure time with my favorite fictional nurse, Edie Spence I hoped she’d get at least a second to enjoy some peace and quiet with Asher in DEADSHIFTED. In reality Edie sunbathing on the cruise ship’s deck and getting manicures would be a pretty boring book and luckily for us the action and danger starts off pretty much right away
If Guy Adams is to be believed, the best way to get to Heaven is to go through Hell. Literally. In ONCE UPON A TIME IN HELL, the second part of his Heaven’s Gate Trilogy, the survivors of THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE INFERNAL finally make it to the mythical town of Wormwood, where once every hundred years a select group of pilgrims gets a chance to peek into the afterlife. Whether that afterlife is upstairs or downstairs seems to depend on the person – but the Dominion of Circles is clearly ‘where the party’s at,’ and the twists on the journey of the Five-Man Band made for a hell of a ride.

I adore the Naked Werewolf series for its light, fun and sexy adventures and HOW TO RUN WITH A NAKED WEREWOLF continues with the sexy and snarky I’ve come to love in this series. Its hilarious, has tons of action and I fell in love with both Anna and Caleb right away.
Because I’m entirely too OCD to read the last book in a series without having read the ones before, I’ve spent the past two weeks catching up on the McKenzie Lewis series. And I’m very glad I did. Not that I don’t think there would have been enough backstory within THE SHARPEST BLADE to catch me up, but the emotional ride wouldn’t have meant as much.
