VENOM & VANILLA was not quite what I was expecting: I thought it would focus more on the baking and on Alena learning to fit in north of the wall. Unfortunately for her, it’s less of a country or town, and more of a ghetto where supernaturals are dumped, encouraged to stick to their own kind and policed by a clearly corrupt police force.
SHADES OF HONOR continues the Anomaly series. The Anomaly series is a great military sci-fi series, that I feel can be enjoyed by urban fantasy readers and sci-fi readers alike. The heroine effectively has supernatural powers that make her one of the best soldiers in the Known Universe making her seem a lot like urban fantasy heroine.
ONCE A GYPSY was an interesting paranormal romance read that suffered from a little too much going on. The setting and characters were fun, and the writing was good, but there were just a few too many bad guys.
In ARCHANGEL’S HEART there’s danger lurking due to Lijuan, one of the most powerful and deadly angel’s being dormant for two years. This calls for a meeting of angelkind to discuss the Lijuan’s impending wake up and the balance of power between the archangels.

One of the genre tags on the Goodreads page for DEADER HOMES AND GARDENS is “cozy mystery” and that is a very accurate description for this book and in fact the whole series. It’s the type of book to read for someone looking for a ‘scary but not pants-wetting scary ‘ book to read on a cold October evening.
A wealth of new covers this week!
THE LIBRARIANS AND THE LOST LAMP, a book based off the popular TV show The Librarians is a fun, fast read that I really enjoyed. My only complaint is that readers who are not as familiar with the TV show as I am may not get the same level of enjoyment out of the book.
