LADY HENTERMAN’S WARDROBE is full of fast-talking one-liners, antiheroes, and complex heists. Despite not having read the first book, I was sold on the promise of thievery, shenanigans, and wit. Although I love a not-so-good gang, the Holver Alley Crew has a lot of members, alliances, and enemies.
Genre: Action & Adventure
It’s rare to find a book aimed at children, with a distinct voice to the narrator, that is also enjoyable as an adult. SORCERY FOR BEGINNERS is a surprisingly mature story that deals with bullying, social injustice, betrayal and yes, sorcery.
I don’t know why Paige Tyler’s two series are so different, but where I adore the SWAT (Secret Werewolf Alpha Team) series, the X-Ops series just isn’t my cup of tea. It’s not as fun as the first, and the characters aren’t as likeable or deep.
IRONHEART has everything I want in a short story: steaming hot romance from the get-go, an easy to follow if dramatic plot, a limited cast of characters that I could love to hear more about, and super powers don’t hurt either. Every since I read KARMA GIRL by Jennifer Estep, super hero romances have had a place in my heart, and IRONHEART has just been added to my favourite short story list.
I didn’t know I needed a fabulous Egyptian-inspired zombie killing novel in my life, but now that I have devoured THE REBURIALISTS, I will be recommending it to everyone at the top of my lungs. It’s equal parts clever and exciting, with a dash of horror and a fun love story.
The world is complicated enough without having to cut the tendons of your dead relatives and get their mouths sewn shut in case a Re-Animus decides to take it for a ride after you bury it. You’re better off cremating it, if you can afford it. Where zombies rising is common place, the BSI (Bureau of Special Investigations) takes care of putting the dead back where they belong, and Brynner Carson is their hero.
