Review:  The Diamond Conspiracy (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #4) by Pip Ballantine, Tee Morris

Review: The Diamond Conspiracy (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #4) by Pip Ballantine, Tee Morris

March 30, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

THE DIAMOND CONSPIRACY is full of steampunk awesomeness as I thought this whole series would be just from reading the story summary of PHOENIX RISING. It has everything from weird steampunk weapons and tricked out vehicles to intense action and some romance thrown in as well. Add a mad scientist doing creepy experiments and secrets upon secrets and this book is filled with so much delicious ideas.

March 12, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

INFINITY BELL, the second book in the House Immortal series, shows that Devon Monk just doesn’t know when to let up – in a good way! INFINITY BELL really takes the reader on a wild ride, throwing them from one conflict to the next, with smooth writing allowing for an excellent reading experience.

Review:  Just in Time for a Highlander (Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands #1) by Gwyn Cready

Review: Just in Time for a Highlander (Sirens of the Scottish Borderlands #1) by Gwyn Cready

February 6, 2015 Review 0 ★★★

What makes JUST IN TIME FOR A HIGHLANDER unique in the ‘time traveling to the past historical romance’ genre is that the genders are switched. The guy, Duncan gets shuttled off to the Highlands of Scotland and meets a Scottish lass, Abby and they fall in love.The conflict (aside from Duncan being stuck in a time with no flush toilets) revolves around Abby trying to avoid war with the English, keeping the clan safe, and avoiding a forced marriage.

Review:  Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers

Review: Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers

December 2, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

Though it started out a bit slowly, MORTAL HEART was an excellent series conclusion to the His Fair Assassin trilogy. With the usual politics, action and intrigue that we’ve come to expect from the trilogy, MORTAL HEART offers an ending that should satisfy readers who’ve followed the characters from GRAVE MERCY.

Review: Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed

Review: Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed

November 20, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

In this retelling of ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,’ Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed have mixed a little machinery with magic while delving into the Arabian culture, and bringing us a protagonist whose heroism is in his dedication – dedication to his craft, his family, and his desire to to what’s right. BABA ALI AND THE CLOCKWORK DJINN is a breath of fresh desert wind, and if the book suffers from some plotting and pacing missteps, it’s still a charming oasis for fantasy lovers looking to enjoy something a little less Western.
