5 Bats! Review: The Undoing (Call of Crows #2), by Shelly Laurenston

5 Bats! Review: The Undoing (Call of Crows #2), by Shelly Laurenston

March 29, 2016 Review 3 ★★★★★

Shelley Laurenston (who also writes the Dragon Kin series as AG Aiken) has a particular way with heroines who are not your typical kick-ass urban fantasy heroines – and I love it!

Jace is a super interesting, layered character and although her quiet behaviour confuses her sister-Crows, most of us can understand the need to get away from unnecessary chit chat and noise. Jace has a particularly dark “first life”, her life before she was chosen by Skuld to become a Crow at the moment of death. Still, she isn’t overly negative and manages to care for her new family, the rowdy, loud, violent women of the Crows.

GRAVE ATTRACTION pulls you in with excellent characters, new and exciting mythology and a great dramatic finale. It managed to blend perfectly all the aspects I’ve come to expect from a book partway through a paranormal romance series, without being overly repetitive or confusing.

5Bat! Review: Dragon On Top (Dragon Kin #0.4), by G.A. Aiken

5Bat! Review: Dragon On Top (Dragon Kin #0.4), by G.A. Aiken

October 29, 2015 Review 1 ★★★★★

DRAGON ON TOP was the perfect blend of fun and sexy, with tons of new mythology and interesting insights into the series; I adored it!

The main Dragon Kin storyline takes place a few hundred years (at least) after the events of DRAGON ON TOP, which is great since the story has gotten a bit heavy in the last books and it’s fabulous to read about the Southlands without the baggage.

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1)  by J.A. Kazimer

Review: The Fairyland Murders (Deadly Ever After, #1) by J.A. Kazimer

December 22, 2014 Review 1 ★★★

THE FAIRYLAND MURDERS was a interesting mixing of noir detective stories with fairy tales. With this mixture of a gritty murder mystery with light fanciful fairies and princesses you get an at times bizarre world filled with some hilarious interactions between characters. There are some neat references to fairy tale characters and fairy tales.

October 3, 2014 Review 0 ★★★★

If you’ve ever found yourself wishing you had more demi-gods and Vikings in your life, then picking up PROPHECY would be a perfect cure. Especially if battles between good and evil that don’t pull punches, twists and turns, and keep you up reading until the wee hours of the night are your thing.

Review: Beauty’s Beast by Amanda Ashley

Review: Beauty’s Beast by Amanda Ashley

September 12, 2014 Review 3 ★★★

It’s got to be a daunting prospect to retell the Beauty/Beast plot, considering how many times it’s been replayed, and not just in movies but in other books, too. (Beastly comes to mind.) But BEAUTY’S BEAST does a fairly good job of giving the Beast a new spin and sets the story in a nicely vague old world setting. In the end, though, it mostly pales in comparisons.

Review: Night Unbound (Immortal Guardians #5) by Dianne Duvall

Review: Night Unbound (Immortal Guardians #5) by Dianne Duvall

September 6, 2014 Review 1 ★★★★

NIGHT UNBOUND is yet another in a strong, Paranormal Romance series that offers action, romance, and characters that don’t fall prey to the “cast of thousands” fatigue so common in this genre. Both Lisette and Zach have appeared in prior books, and seeing these two find a happily-ever-after makes for a steamy and satisfying romance, with a minimum of drama keeping them apart.
