Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez

September 27, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

I’m usually not that much of a graphic novel reader, however, I had lots of friends recommend Locke & Key Vol 1: Welcome to Lovecraft to me, so after much convincing I picked it up. And I’m glad I did. Locke & Key is a series I will read through to the end, and I liked it so much I’ll be getting the fancy hardcover versions for the rest of the series.

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

April 12, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

Some people may call FELLSIDE heart-breaking, but that is too gentle. The book rips out your heart, stabs it with a shank made from an old toothbrush, and finishes it off with a few good whacks with a fire-extinguisher for good measure. This book is incredibly violent, but also incredibly touching, with characters that will stick with you long after the last page.

5Bat! Review: Positive by David Wellington

5Bat! Review: Positive by David Wellington

May 15, 2015 Review 2 ★★★★★

POSITIVE’s post apocalyptic America is a scary place: walled cities that are barely surviving, a terrifying death cult moving in from the west, and endless stretches of open road with zombies at every turn. It’s a wild, wild ride.
Finnegan is exiled from New York at 18, but he still feels very much like a child. He is a second-generation survivor, and he doesn’t understand why the first-generation are so quick to panic. When he is thrust from the relative safety of Manhattan island into the wilds, he has a steep learning curve to deal with. I loved how little things showed how sheltered he was: thinking Ohio is two hours away from Manhattan, not understanding family pictures, and more. As he meets people, more nasty than good, he quickly learns how difficult it is to survive after the world has ended.

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

Review: Sublime by Christina Lauren

October 18, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Don’t be fooled into expecting the usual YA ghostly love story, SUBLIME will entrap those tender expectations and twist them into horror. While the characters are as charismatic as expected from the expert romance duo Christina Lauren, most of the ghostly promise of the plot ultimately fell flat.

Review: Voices from Beyond (Ghost Finders, #5) by Simon R. Green

Review: Voices from Beyond (Ghost Finders, #5) by Simon R. Green

September 15, 2014 Review 0 ★★★

Simon R. Green’s stories tend to have a dark twisted humor to them that makes the horror of what is happening manageable. VOICES FROM BEYOND definitely is classic Simon R. Green with the difference being that these protagonists have slightly less super powers than his other books. I liked that as it made the story feel more intense and their victory even more earned.

Review: The Ripper Affair (Bannon & Clare #3) by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: The Ripper Affair (Bannon & Clare #3) by Lilith Saintcrow

August 21, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★★

Perhaps the best of the series thus far, THE RIPPER AFFAIR is the confluence of a dark mystery, an exploration of London’s altered and haunting landscape, and the emotional growing pains of Bannon’s little family. A fantastic book for any one of these elements, combining all three makes for a relentless, mesmerizing read.
