Review: Iron Kin (The Half-Light City, #3) by M.J. Scott

April 5, 2013 Review 2

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.

Early Review: Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland

Early Review: Vengeance Bound by Justina Ireland

March 29, 2013 Review 2

When a book is described as ‘The Goddess Test meets Dexter’ it gets shoved to the very top of my TBR pile. What could be better than a teenage serial killer hunting down human monsters with the help of the Furies from Greek Mythology? It’s such an amazing premise that unfortunately fell just a little flat.

Review: Kitty Rocks the House (Kitty Norville #11) by Carrie Vaughn

KITTY ROCKS THE HOUSE proves that Kitty is one tough and creative werewolf. She’s trying to be a stern but fair alpha, dealing with the vampires’ Long Game, and hosting her radio show. The Kitty Norville series isn’t just foreboding vampire and werewolf politics but also has a quirky strain of humor especially with Kitty’s radio show callers.

Review: The Lost (Celestial Blues #2) by Vicki Pettersson

Review: The Lost (Celestial Blues #2) by Vicki Pettersson

March 26, 2013 Review 3

There is no denying the technicolor beauty of Vicki Pettersson’s rockabilly heroine, Kit Craig. Each crisp, thoughtful detail brings the scent, feel, and lush sensuality of her perspective to life. In THE LOST, however, Pettersson reveals the fragility beneath Kit’s meticulous habits, the dark correllary of her structured world.

Early Review: Seven Kinds of Hell (Fangborn #1) by Dana Cameron

Early Review: Seven Kinds of Hell (Fangborn #1) by Dana Cameron

March 11, 2013 Review 3

SEVEN KINDS OF HELL is the first full length novel in the Fangborn series, but it’s not the first story set in this world. I’ve read and reviewed two short stories set in the Fangborn universe (there have been four–see the series tab below for links) and was thrilled to get to jump into a more expansive novel featuring an archaeologist no less (possibly my favorite literary profession), along with the Stueben siblings from the short stories. I’m sorry to say I was less thrilled by the somewhat staid story and rather bland characters.

From the moment I laid eyes on DEEP DOWN’s gorgeous cover, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. In WIDE OPEN, I fell in love with Hallie. There is a particular quality to Deborah Coates’s writing that immerses me in her characters
