Release Day Review: The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

Release Day Review: The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan

October 10, 2017 Review 0

THE HOLLOW GIRL was written by a Romani to honor her grandmother and their shared Romani heritage. I was drawn in by that fact, excited to learn more about the Romani culture from the point-of-view of a young woman learning magic from her grandmother. However, I feel I must start this review by acknowledging that THE HOLLOW GIRL deals with a trigger warning for sexual harassment, abuse, and rape.

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

September 15, 2017 Review 3

BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS fits in a lot of YA paranormal romance cliches while somehow also managing to be very unique and totally creepy. The creative mythology really gives a lot of oomph to what could be a very flat and boring YA paranormal romance.

Review: A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan

Review: A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan

September 7, 2017 Review 0

With its small doses of magic and potions, A SECRET HISTORY OF WITCHES is more a historical novel than fantasy. The novel follows six generations of Orchiére women handing down their witchcraft. As knowledge is passed down, elements are lost or corrupted. It doesn’t take long for ancestral rituals to be forgotten in the face of a changing society.

Review: Graveyard Shift by Michael F. Haspil

Review: Graveyard Shift by Michael F. Haspil

A police procedural should investigate the main characters, just as the characters are investigating a crime. In GRAVEYARD SHIFT, there doesn’t seem to be much individuality between its investigators, when there should be worlds of difference.

Review: Chew: The Smorgasbord Edition, Volume 3 by John Layman

Review: Chew: The Smorgasbord Edition, Volume 3 by John Layman

August 21, 2017 Review 0

CHEW has never been a book for the weak-stomached. There is no way of getting around the fact that our main character eats the corpses of villains and victims in order to solve crimes. He doesn’t always wait until they are dead, either. It’s twisted, hilarious and heart-breaking all at the same time.
