Release Day Review: Magic Binds (Kate Daniels #9) by Ilona Andrews

September 20, 2016 Review 0

Have you ever read a book and wanted to immediately start it over again or find a way to get the next book even though it isn’t completed yet and your T.A.R.D.I.S. is always broken? That happens to me every time I finish one of the books in the Kate Daniels series. Such is the disappointment of traveling through time in a linear fashion.

Release Day Review:  Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Release Day Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

March 8, 2016 Review 1

FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

Early Review: The Bloodforged (Bloodbound #2) by Erin Lindsey

September 25, 2015 Review 0

Classic sword and sorcery, but by no means a simple story, BLOODFORGED explores the intricacies of politics, war, and marrying your ex-boyfriend’s brother. In this universe “victory” is more nuanced than defeating a single villain or weakness, forcing Alix and company to face heartbreakingly real obstacles as they fight for the alliances and resources that can turn the tide of a losing war. And upon this stage of high adventure and higher stakes, Lindsay’s characters sparkle with wit, emotion, and relationships that ring true.

Review: Wish Bound (Grimm Agency #3) by J.C. Nelson

Review: Wish Bound (Grimm Agency #3) by J.C. Nelson

September 14, 2015 Review 2

WISH BOUND is a spectacular installment in the Grimm Agency series. While I can’t tell if this is the last book, or if the series is going to continue, WISH BOUND takes the plot line that has grown through the previous books and finishes it out with a bang. With characters we’ve come to know and love, it’s offers a wonderful sense of closure and offers answers to many of the questions that have come up throughout the series.

Review: Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels #8) by Ilona Andrews

August 31, 2015 Review 1

While Urban Fantasy often offers the emotion and character growth of Romance, the best surprises lie on the other side of the happily ever after. Through the looking glass of this familiar trope we see beloved characters moving to the burbs, dealing with bossy neighbors, and killing deadly creatures to be home in time for dinner.

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.

Review: The Diamond Conspiracy (Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences #4) by Pip Ballantine, Tee Morris

March 30, 2015 Review 0

THE DIAMOND CONSPIRACY is full of steampunk awesomeness as I thought this whole series would be just from reading the story summary of PHOENIX RISING. It has everything from weird steampunk weapons and tricked out vehicles to intense action and some romance thrown in as well. Add a mad scientist doing creepy experiments and secrets upon secrets and this book is filled with so much delicious ideas.

Review: Armageddon Rules (Grimm Agency #2) by J.C. Nelson

March 23, 2015 Review 0

ARMAGEDDON RULES follows in FREE AGENT’s footsteps as an action-packed, roller-coaster ride of a novel, full of drama and never letting the reader catch a breath. While sometimes this works, in this case, the entire novel became a bit difficult to follow, with multiple plotlines and many similarly named characters offering the opportunity for confusion.
