Review: Shadow Rites (Jane Yellowrock #10) by Faith Hunter

Review: Shadow Rites (Jane Yellowrock #10) by Faith Hunter

December 12, 2016 Review 0

The Jane Yellowrock books have the distinction of being a long running series that I can’t keep track of at all but enjoy from book to book. I don’t know what makes details slide away, the similarity of Jane’s nicknames for people? The complexity of mythologies that always underpin the “big reveal” at the end? I know Ricky is gone (in a rather unsatisfying way), Jane and Beast are partners, and vampires are dangerous. Additional details are refreshed in the opening chapters.

Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

November 7, 2016 Review 0

VENOM & VANILLA was not quite what I was expecting: I thought it would focus more on the baking and on Alena learning to fit in north of the wall. Unfortunately for her, it’s less of a country or town, and more of a ghetto where supernaturals are dumped, encouraged to stick to their own kind and policed by a clearly corrupt police force.

Review: Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, The Vampire Accountant #3) by Drew Hayes

Review: Bloody Acquisitions (Fred, The Vampire Accountant #3) by Drew Hayes

October 14, 2016 Review 4

BLOODY ACQUISITIONS is easily the best book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series. Drew Hayes’ writing has improved a lot since THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT. He’s managed to keep all of the amazing things that make the world of Fred, that Vampire Accountant so lovable, while ditching all of the bad parts. This is no longer a collection of novellas, but one story. BLOODY ACQUISITIONS still has an episodic feel to it, but it follows one story line.

Review: The Graces (The Graces #1) by Laure Eve

Review: The Graces (The Graces #1) by Laure Eve

October 13, 2016 Review 1

THE GRACES pulled me in with its intriguing description and lovely cover, but ultimately didn’t deliver. Though the writing was lovely, the plot wasn’t as good as it could have been and the ending was, to me, a complete let down.

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

October 11, 2016 Review 5

Process nerds will find much to love and hate in the latest Anita Blake installment. While readers may tune in to solve a crime spree, that promised police procedure never materializes. Rather, CRIMSON DEATH offers an unexpected love song to therapy, to the rewards of the hard work required to maintain relationships both romantic and otherwise. For the first time in a long, long time, it is the relationship side of Anita’s story that offers progress and hope.
