Review:  Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

Review: Pale Moon Walking by Paula Altenburg

November 12, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Pale Moon Walking is a brilliant blend of the Wild West and aliens and at the center a strong romance between two very tough, independent characters. We have gunslingers, small desert towns mixed with government conspiracies, military experimentation, and mysterious aliens.

Review: Under His Skin (Alien Encounters #1) by Stacey O’Neale

Review: Under His Skin (Alien Encounters #1) by Stacey O’Neale

October 15, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Right off the bat, UNDER HIS SKIN hit all the right paranormal romance notes for me: easy to relate to characters, two people who are crazy about each other but are kept apart by outside forces/their own will, and sexy protagonists from outer space. What more can you ask for? Well for one, it could have used a bit more science-fiction “science”, but it didn’t ruin the book for me.

August 20, 2015 Review 0 ★★★★

Whenever I see a new Rainshadow series book come out I admit I get a little excited for more dust bunny adventures. I know, I know they are the sidekicks/adorable pets of the main characters who are fabulous and tough and everything I’d want in a heroine. But I love them.

Review:  Redzone (Mutant Files #2) by William C. Dietz

Review: Redzone (Mutant Files #2) by William C. Dietz

August 1, 2015 Review 0 ★★

REDZONE came off as really confused as to what genre it wanted to be. For the longest time it felt like I was reading a police procedural and a one that was at times confusing and slow. There were some hints about mutants and a disease being passed around in world. These mutants are put in redzones for everyone’s protection. When Cassandra does eventually go to a redzone it felt like a massive detour from the Bonebreaker serial killer plot of the police procedural section.

Shades of Treason (Anomaly #1) by Sandy Williams

Shades of Treason (Anomaly #1) by Sandy Williams

July 3, 2015 Review 3 ★★★★

Though SHADES OF TREASON is science fiction, it really felt a lot like an urban fantasy story just in a sci-fi setting. The main character, Ash, is an anomaly. Though just what an anomaly is was never explained, anomalies are stronger, faster, and in some ways smarter than other humans. All those extra abilities made Ash feel a lot like your standard supernatural urban fantasy heroine.

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

The Shadow Revolution (Crown & Key #1) by Clay Griffith and Susan Griffith

June 4, 2015 Review 4 ★★★★

There be monsters here; amid the gas lamp laden walkways of Victorian era London in THE SHADOW REVOLUTION and just a few magic practitioners stand in defense against the darkness. I loved the setting and the world building set up in this story and the idea of a order of magical practitioners with various sorts of skills really peaked my interest.

Review: The Affinities by Robert Charles Wilson

Review: The Affinities by Robert Charles Wilson

May 13, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★

Lost in a crowd? Need to find yourself? A place where you just belong? THE AFFINITIES introduces a wonderful/scary world where finding your place in the world is simply an inexpensive test away; and if you don’t fit into any of the 22 standard profiles, or affinities, you even get your money back!
