COLD KISS is a mood piece, haunting and clear. It is a sad song, a scrap of poetry, an intimate glimpse of grief and adolescence and redemption. Despite the oh so brief moment in time that we share with Wren, the author fills in all of the real, delicate little details that allow all of these characters to go straight to the heart.
In SPIDER’S REVENGE Gin’s battle with Mab, simmering in the background for so long, finally comes to a head.

Stilted dialogue, stiff delivery of background information, and a juvenile melding of history with World War II made this book a lackluster read for me. To a young YA reader, I think the adventure, mythology, and age appropriate romantic elements would be much more enjoyable, but I don’t think DARK PASSAGE has much potential as an adult crossover.
Exotic foreign locations, an unflappable teenage protagonist, creativity and art, wishes granted and mysteries unsolved; Laini Taylor’s DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE is seductive when it reads like a teenage romance and utterly irresistible once it flowers into the full reality of it’s magic and conflict. In the simplest terms, I would not recommend starting this book until you can read straight through to the end, but above anything, I would recommend that all fans of Paranormal YA, Urban Fantasy, or straight up Fantasy make sure they find time to give this book a try.
The first few chapters of this book rubbed me the wrong way, but never have I been so glad that I kept reading past those initial growing pains as when I finished HALF-BLOOD. The opening of this story felt like a recipe for drama and disaster: forbidden love, bad attitude, mean-girl nemesis and evil step-father. While the world of the Hematoi never gets any kinder (the treatment of half-bloods goes beyond “second class citizenship” to just plain horrific), and destiny definitely has it in for Alex, but by book’s end I had tears in my eyes and couldn’t wait to get my hands on Covenant book two, PURE.
