ICE MOON is a fun paranormal romance with an interesting central story and conflict. While I was a bit annoyed/sad that Taryn wouldn’t even touch her son which probably isn’t going to be good for his emotional development in the future (in reality, I’m sure he’ll be fine in this series!), I liked seeing the reason behind her ‘no touching’ rule unravel as the story progressed.
I tend to like reading mysteries and ones with an infusion of magic are even better. Unfortunately, I felt like I was forcing myself to finish LOOK BOTH WAYS. It had a lot of good elements to it including a murder to solve, hidden diamonds, and lots of suspects to choose from to make it a fun whodunit.
THE CASQUETTE GIRLS is a fascinating and haunting paranormal YA novel. The plot starts off a tad slow though once it gets started it really moves. It’s a tale that takes some of New Orleans’ more famous ghost and vampire stories and gives them an even more sinister bent. I loved the setting as its a city so entrenched in mystery and has its own very colorful history.
THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS starts right where THE HIDDEN MASTERS OF MARANDUR left off, and the action, romance, and political intrigue of the previous books continues superbly in this one. My number one fear for THE ASSASSINS OF ALTIS was that the plot would start to stall. I’ve seen this happen with a lot of books like this, but Jack Campbell clearly has the whole Pillars of Reality series thoroughly plotted out, because I never felt it stall.
I’m sorry if I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but I want to start this review off by once again complimenting the amazing artwork of Doris Mantair. And along with the fantastic cover art Ilona Andrews also commissioned another four pieces of art that are scattered throughout SWEEP IN PEACE. I really wish that more books did that. It’s easier to do now that so many people read ebooks, and it brings the story to life a little bit more. Though Ilona Andrews really doesn’t need any help bringing the story to life.
Pale Moon Walking is a brilliant blend of the Wild West and aliens and at the center a strong romance between two very tough, independent characters. We have gunslingers, small desert towns mixed with government conspiracies, military experimentation, and mysterious aliens.
LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITCH is a clever witchy mystery centered around a rather complicated romance that almost took on soap opera like proportions in its dramatic reveals and complex relationship issues.
What instantly drew me to this book when I saw it on Audible was the artwork. If you follow my comments on our Cover Art Coverage posts you’ll know that I love actually artwork on covers. The artwork on this cover is absolutely amazing! And the artwork doesn’t end there.
Sometimes a cover is only as good as its title font, lighting and shadows can make or break the impact of the art it represents.
