Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1

While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.

RUINED was a fun young adult book, that while enjoyable, fell a little flat for me. With some interesting aspects, and the beginnings of a sweet romance, I think that RUINED could have been a better read for me with some more details and fleshed out characters.

Review: Borderline (The Arcadia Project #1), by Mishell Baker

June 2, 2016 Review 0

BORDERLINE, by Mishell Baker, is a strange book, and I was never quite sure what it was trying to be; serious exploration of mental health disorders in a fantasy setting, a love letter to Hollywood, a dark fantasy world occasionally peppered with clever observation? The main character was super engaging (if not always particularly likeable), but the urban fantasy part left me wanting more.

Early Review: Blood Lust (The Sentinels #3) by Alexandra Ivy

BLOOD LUST is another excellent, bold, action-packed installment of The Sentinels series. I love when we are given the opportunity to see interesting side characters from previous books get their own book. For BLOOD LUST we get Bas, a mysterious assassin who caught my eye earlier in this series.

Kincaid Sinclair has just had her livelihood made illegal, discovers a ghost trap in her lobby and now a random zombie shows up at her favourite bar… She’s having a rough day in Seattle. And of course, it’s raining.

THE VOODOO KILLINGS takes place in the wet, ghost-filled world of Seattle, where a new police chief has put a stop on using mediums to question murder victims and witnesses, either in zombie or ghost form. Overnight, Kincaid has lost her main source of income and her Detective boyfriend too. He says it’s not related, but she figures it is; when you raise the dead for a living, you gotta trust your gut feeling.

Review: A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund

Review: A Daring Sacrifice (An Uncertain Choice #2) by Jody Hedlund

May 3, 2016 Review 4

The legend and myth of Robin Hood has always fascinated me. The tale of a guerrilla stealing from the looting rulers and giving back to the producers has always been a story that has resonated with me. So I’m always drawn to Robin Hood books. Most of them aren’t that original, but I still enjoy the retelling from a different authors perspective. So when I first clicked on A DARING SACRIFICE and found out it was a Robin Hood retelling, but with a female Robin Hood, I was thrilled. This was just the new twist I was looking for on the Robin Hood legend. However, I was quickly disappointing.
