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.

THE UNYIELDING is a fun romp through both the Norse underworld and the modern world, with a good dose of mischief and sexy romance. The characters are fun, the monsters are properly horrific and the stakes are high enough to matter. Although Ragnarok is no laughing matter, THE UNYIELDING makes it fun.

It’s rare for fantasy books to have a lived-in setting. Instead of existing just to explain backstory to the protagonist, DREAM EATER’s side characters don’t care if Koi Pierce is confused and uncomfortable. DREAM EATER also doesn’t waste time trying to make you like Koi Pierce. You like her or you don’t.

SHADOW WOLF was a confusing mythological mess that overran what could have been a sweet story between two characters. From the beginning of the book, there are so many unanswered questions that the author isn’t interested in addressing that I spent most of the book frowning in confusion.

Early Review: How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced #1), by Kerrelyn Sparks

Early Review: How To Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced #1), by Kerrelyn Sparks

March 6, 2017 Review 0

When I saw Kerrelyn Sparks’ name pop up, I instantly wanted to read this book; her Love At Stake is one of my guilty pleasures. Imagine by surprise when this book featured a meatier fantasy setting than her other vampire/urban fantasy series! I raced through this book as the intrigue, magic and love story developed. It was an enchanting read with fabulously loveable characters and both humour and tragedy throughout.

Review: Fangs and Fennel (The Venom Trilogy #2) by Shannon Mayer

January 12, 2017 Review 0

It doesn’t take long for FANGS & FENNEL to pick up steam. The fast-pacing of the novel promises a fight or a flee in every chapter. While it seems that everyone in FANGS & FENNEL either wants to kill or kiss her, Alena Budrene just wants to divorce her husband, keep her bakery, and be taken seriously by her friends and family.
