Review: A Plunder of Souls (The Thieftaker Chronicles #3) by D. B. Jackson

When the days of the Salem witch trials have passed, and you happen to be one of a handful of spell casters who survived, what’s an honest witch to do to eek out a livelihood in Boston? Become a freelance private investigator, otherwise known as a “theiftaker” of course! And when a case comes up that no normal person can solve, much less touch, then a spellcaster is clearly what you need. This is the world of A PLUNDER OF SOULS and there is a lot to like about it.

5!bat Review: Of Metal and Wishes (Of Metal and Wishes #1) by Sarah Fine

August 8, 2014 Review 4

OF METAL AND WISHES hits that perfect blend of interesting world building, real characters, and romantic danger. Reminiscent of The Phantom of the Opera and THE HUNGER GAMES, these familiar components click together to create an altogether different dynamic. I couldn’t get this story out of my head until the very last page, and now I daydream about what comes next.

Review: The Merman and the Barbarian Pirate

August 2, 2014 Review 3

THE MERMAN AND THE BARBARIAN PIRATE was one of those books that captured me with the beautiful cover and failed to live up to the expectation it set. Though intriguing, THE MERMAN AND THE BARBARIAN PIRATE felt shallow and lacking in development.

Review: Goddess Born by Kari Edgren

Oh, semi-Gothic novel, how I’ve missed you. I cut my romance teeth on the classics in Gothic novels – Bronte, Woodiwiss and the indomitable Victoria Holt. GODDESS BORN isn’t quite in those categories, but delightfully close enough. The fact that there’s a Celtic goddess in there is just icing on the cake.

Release Day Review: Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2) by Jenn Bennett

Release Day Review: Grim Shadows (Roaring Twenties #2) by Jenn Bennett

June 3, 2014 Review 0

While naming this series the Roaring Twenties certainly has historical precedent, there is an argument to be made for “the Steamy Twenties”. Amid the magic and intrigue, Bennett creates two nuanced and well developed characters who chase treasure, test wits, and generate enough sexual heat to curl this book’s pages.
