HOT BLOODED follows the newest – and only – female werewolf in the world on her quest for her mate, who was kidnapped by an evil goddess at the end of the first book in the Jessica McClain series, FULL BLOODED. This is a good sequel with enough development to advance the series plot line, and a self contained story that has a satisfying ending for the reader.
Genre: Urban Fantasy
LONDON FALLING is now the second book I’ve read in the last month about serial killers in London. Which is weird, because until now I couldn’t have told you how long it’s been since I’ve read any book with serial killers in them. I’m not sure what my point is other than to say that at no time during the book did I feel I was treading on familiar ground. Normally when I read similar books I end up putting the second one aside for a bit because it just doesn’t feel ‘fresh’. LONDON FALLING definitely felt fresh.
I don’t think I’ve ever replied to an email faster than I did when Abigail sent one out asking if anyone wanted to review comics set in the Buffyverse. I’ve been a fan of the show since the first episode aired and I may be a little (scarily, if you ask my fiancé) obsessed.

Being a big mystery fan I was surprised at just how much the pacing mirrored a mystery series with a lot more methodical detective work and occasional bursts of action.
I would not want to be the person in charge of how to categorize A MATTER OF BLOOD as it could easily hold its own shelved anywhere in the mystery, urban fantasy or horror sections of your local book shop.

The Ripper is still on the loose in RENEGADE, the second book in the increasingly ominous Ripper series. The creepiness factor of Max (aka the Ripper) is at an all time high as he stalks Arabella The mind games Max sadistically plays by subtly threatening her
THE WITCH COLLECTOR PART I starts out strong and pulls you right in with the mystery. Why are Breeda’s parents running away from their home and why are they going to Chicago? Who or what took them from the apartment after they got there? And why the heck would they name their child Breeda?
Unlike most YA novels that feature angels, the Immortal Angels series doesn’t hide these beings from the masses, it turns them into celebrities complete with paparazzi, commercials, and magazine interviews. It’s a cool concept that could have been even
In IRON KIN the stakes are raised as the people of the Half-Light City creep closer to all out war. The worldbuilding in this series is one of its strengths and delving deeper into the politics of this world made it even richer. The fragile peace between the mages, vampires, and shifters drove the action and kept the threat of war dangerous close throughout the book.
Got some really hard to kill vampires? Jane Yellowrock can get that job done and then some. In BLOOD TRADE Jane comes back with a vengeance from some difficult circumstances in the previous book. She’s not in a good place during the start of BLOOD TRADE
