5Bat! Review: Dragon On Top (Dragon Kin #0.4), by G.A. Aiken

5Bat! Review: Dragon On Top (Dragon Kin #0.4), by G.A. Aiken

October 29, 2015 Review 1

DRAGON ON TOP was the perfect blend of fun and sexy, with tons of new mythology and interesting insights into the series; I adored it!

The main Dragon Kin storyline takes place a few hundred years (at least) after the events of DRAGON ON TOP, which is great since the story has gotten a bit heavy in the last books and it’s fabulous to read about the Southlands without the baggage.

Review: Nightwise by R.S. Belcher

September 25, 2015 Review 0

If you are looking for the ultimate bad-boy wizard, Laytham Ballard, the “hero” of NIGHTWISE will be right up your alley. Unfortunately, you’ll have to swamp through the first third of the book to get to the really interesting stuff.

As a rock-star-famous wizard, Laytham waltzes in and out of the scene, spending money and getting laid wherever he goes. He’s done some dark things, and the first third of the book is devoted to proving that to the reader.

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

September 25, 2015 Review 0

Classic sword and sorcery, but by no means a simple story, BLOODFORGED explores the intricacies of politics, war, and marrying your ex-boyfriend’s brother. In this universe “victory” is more nuanced than defeating a single villain or weakness, forcing Alix and company to face heartbreakingly real obstacles as they fight for the alliances and resources that can turn the tide of a losing war. And upon this stage of high adventure and higher stakes, Lindsay’s characters sparkle with wit, emotion, and relationships that ring true.

Review: Badge, Book and Candle (Bookburners Episode #1.1) by Max Gladstone

Review: Badge, Book and Candle (Bookburners Episode #1.1) by Max Gladstone

September 24, 2015 Review 0

The first episode of Bookburners, BADGE, BOOK AND CANDLE, sure packs a punch for only forty one pages.

The introduction gets you into the brain of the main character quickly and effectively, and unlike many female police characters, I didn’t get the feeling she had a massive chip on her shoulders or something to prove that made her cold and distant.

Review: Poisoned Apples by Christine Heppermann

Review: Poisoned Apples by Christine Heppermann

September 11, 2015 Review 0

POISONED APPLES opens by warning its readers, “You can lose your way anywhere,” and for anyone underestimating this slim volume of YA fairy tale poetry, consider yourself fairly warned. It’s a solid little book, some offerings packing more of an emotional punch than others, some fitting the fairy tale theme better than others. But taken as a whole, it delivers raw and sometimes brutal commentary on what it means to be a teenage girl today.

Review:  Archangel’s Enigma (Guild Hunter #8) by Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Enigma (Guild Hunter #8) by Nalini Singh

September 3, 2015 Review 0

ARCHANGEL’S ENIGMA has a lot going on in its over arching plot which is to be expected with the Guild Hunter series books. Like its predecessors this book continues to expand on the Cascade storyline hopefully bringing it to a conclusion eventually as I don’t know how much more destruction the earth and people can take before the earth implodes on itself.
