Review: Ironheart, by Nico Rosso

Review: Ironheart, by Nico Rosso

March 17, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

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.

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

5 Bats! Review: The Reburialists, by J.C. Nelson

March 14, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★★

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.

Review:  Chaos Choreography (InCryptid #5) by Seanan McGuire

Review: Chaos Choreography (InCryptid #5) by Seanan McGuire

March 12, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

I loved getting back to Verity’s storyline in CHAOS CHOREOGRAPHY and especially loved that my silent wish was answered which was to have Dance or Die be in the actual story instead of being constantly referenced to. The dance competition reality show was my favorite part of the story and part of this is due to my love of dance competition reality shows.

Release Day Review:  Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Release Day Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

March 8, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

Audiobook Review: The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes #1) by Charles Stross

March 5, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

THE FAMILY TRADE isn’t Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance, and it’s hard for me to really classify it other than by using the broader term speculative fiction. But I enjoyed it so much I wanted to write a review about it. THE FAMILY TRADE follows a reporter, Miriam Beckstein, who quickly finds herself caught up in another dimension when she discovers that she has the very rare ability to “world walk.” Court intrigue, assassinations, and hidden romance fill THE FAMILY TRADE.

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

Review: Wedding Bells, Magic Spells (Raine Benares #7) by Lisa Shearin

February 24, 2016 Review 5 ★★★★

After ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, I fully expected never to read another Raine Benares book again. Lucky for us, Shearin decided to self-publish more in the series! WEDDING BELLS, MAGIC SPELLS follows almost immediately after the events in ALL SPELLS BREAK LOOSE, and follows the same formula as other books in the series – successfully, I might add.

Audiobook Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead

Audiobook Review: Soundless by Richelle Mead

February 19, 2016 Review 1 ★★★

I really enjoyed Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, and I loved her Bloodlines series, so I was eager to try SOUNDLESS and see what she could do in a different world. However, I wasn’t pulled into SOUNDLESS in the same way I was the Vampire Academy universe.
