Review: Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow

Review: Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow

May 9, 2017 Review 0

SHARP TEETH is one of the best books of poetry I have ever read and one of the most enchanting books about werewolves ever. It is a story about dogs and homeless people. It’s about living on the beach in LA. It’s about picking up strays, both the canine and the human kind. SHARP TEETH is also a mystery about drugs and control, with meth labs and police officers and chases.

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

April 21, 2017 Review 0

This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.

These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.

5bat! Review: Etched in Bone (The Others #5) by Anne Bishop

5bat! Review: Etched in Bone (The Others #5) by Anne Bishop

The Others is one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I love The Others so much because it is almost a purely character driven story. There is still a great over arching plot to the whole series, but what keeps me turning the pages are the characters. ETCHED IN BONE continues that tradition and develops the characters even more than before.

5bat! Release Day Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

March 14, 2017 Review 1

I love fairy tale retellings, and I especially love retellings of Beauty and the Beast, and so I was primed to fall in love with HUNTED from the very start. With its beautiful cover and intriguing description, I was so excited to read it – and luckily, HUNTED did not disappoint.

5bat! Review: Sinners (Monster Hunter Memoirs #2) by Larry Correia and John Ringo

5bat! Review: Sinners (Monster Hunter Memoirs #2) by Larry Correia and John Ringo

At this point I’m pretty sure that John Ringo asked himself at the beginning of each Monster Hunter Memoirs book what was something cool that he could add to the Monster Hunter universe that Larry Corriea hadn’t done. With GRUNGE John Ringo answered the question, what would happen if a monster hunter could talk to monsters? In SINNERS, John Ringo takes on what would happen if everyone knew about monsters?

Review: Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn

Review: Martians Abroad by Carrie Vaughn

March 7, 2017 Review 0

Martians Abroad has a great premise. Kids who were born and grew up on Mars coming to Earth for school. Boarding school stories are a little over done, but they can still turn out to be great. However, as I started to read Martians Abroad I realized that a lot of the problem with the story was the original premise.
