Review: Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel

Review: Sailor Twain by Mark Siegel

April 18, 2014 Review 0

SAILOR TWAIN is a sensuous experience, from the rough paper petting the finger tips to the soft, blurred images seducing the reader into it’s world. After the first, mysterious chapter, it was Captain Twain himself that was my anchor. Solid, loyal, hardworking… and so obviously drifting closer and closer to a maelstrom of seduction and magic.

Review: Resurrection (Ripper, #3) by Amy Carol Reeves

Review: Resurrection (Ripper, #3) by Amy Carol Reeves

April 14, 2014 Review 0

RESURRECTION continues right where RENEGADE left of with the undead essentially making more dead in dark streets of London and the Ripper still at large stalking Abbie and trying to get her to become immortal like him. I tend to yawn at bad guys in fiction constantly asking the hero/heroine to ‘join them’ in whatever nefarious plot or

5bat! Review: Silence for the Dead by Simone St. James

A brilliant, chilling ghost story, SILENCE FOR THE DEAD created such a vivid world I couldn’t bear to put it down. This story is as romantic and terrifying as reading Jane Eyre for the first time, and as soon as I finished it I rushed back through my gothic favorites to continue savoring the tone.

Review: The Midnight Witch by Paula Brackston

Review: The Midnight Witch by Paula Brackston

March 26, 2014 Review 0

Downton Abbey by way of Anne Rice, THE MIDNIGHT WITCH is a touching period romance, set against a backdrop of a dying class system and a secret magical war over the ability to raise the dead. Though the exact purpose of the Lazarus Coven and their sorcerer rivals, the Sentinels, is vague, Brackston does an excellent job of painting Lilith Montgomery’s classic struggle between her duty to her craft and her heart.

Review: Tempered  (The St. Croix Chronicles #4) by Karina Cooper

Review: Tempered (The St. Croix Chronicles #4) by Karina Cooper

February 21, 2014 Review 0

Where the previous books in the St. Croix Chronicles were fast paced with danger and dangerous people lurking around every corner, TEMPERED deals with more internal battles and emotional trauma. Cherry has gone through so much externally dealing with the Veil and Society it felt fitting to have a story spend some time dealing with the internal effects of what happened to Cherry.

Review: A Breath of Frost (The Lovegrove Legacy #1) by Alyxandra Harvey

Starring witches and set in Regency London, A BREATH OF FROST is certainly a departure from Alyxandra Harvey’s modern day vampires in the Drake Chronicles. This shouldn’t concern you though, as Harvey took on historical fiction and magic wonderfully, kicking off a new series that I am certainly excited to follow.

5bat! Review: Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties #1) by Jenn Bennett

January 9, 2014 Review 4

A perfect balance between romance, period fiction, and ghost story, Jenn Bennett’s BITTER SPIRITS is the flapper romance I’ve been waiting for. Fans of the Arcadia Bell series know Bennett can generate some heat, but dial it up to eleven for this lovely, ghostly romance filled with fashion, passion, and bootlegging.
