Review: Evernight (Darkest London,#5) by Kristen Callihan

Review: Evernight (Darkest London,#5) by Kristen Callihan

August 28, 2014 Review 2 ★★★★

One of the most common tropes in romantic literature and even romantic comedies is the couple who at first absolutely hate each other and eventually fall in love after some trials and tribulations or hilarious hijinks. EVERNIGHT takes this type of relationship and starts right out the gate with Thorne seriously threatening to kill Holly. I was kind of surprised to see the death threats starting out so soon in the story so I was quite interested to see just how these two would go from wanting to commit homicide to love.

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.

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 Kraken King Parts 3 & 4 (The Iron Seas #4.3 – 4.4) by Meljean Brook

Review: The Kraken King Parts 3 & 4 (The Iron Seas #4.3 – 4.4) by Meljean Brook

May 9, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

With these two new additions to the THE KRAKEN KING serial adventure, Zenobia and Ariq are established, compelling, and off on their adventure. Moving from the comfort of Ariq’s encampment to the wider world, we get to see both Ariq’s political savvy and the price of Zenobia’s fame in action. Zenobia and Ariq have an undeniable chemistry, but loyalties to respective loved ones mean their keeping all of that heat under wraps for much of this journey… but not all.

Review: The Clockwork Wolf (Disenchanted & Co. #2) by Lynn Viehl

Review: The Clockwork Wolf (Disenchanted & Co. #2) by Lynn Viehl

March 17, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

THE CLOCKWORK WOLF is an excellent example of a second book in a series that surpasses the first. Maybe I’m biased because I read DISENCHANTED & CO in two parts, but THE CLOCKWORK WOLF is a spectacular dive into Kit’s world of Toriana, complete with fascinating magic, nefarious villains, and multiple love interests.
