I always enjoy it when a book takes characters from history and puts a twist on them as GHOST PHOENIX does with various famous figures from different points in time posing as immortals living in modern times. One issue I had with the story is the use of ‘California slang’ like ‘stellar’. I adored the fact that Richard Plantagenet is an immortal surfer dude but it
Flirty and fun, ANTE UP is a great installment in the Sin City Collectors series. With badass witch Sofia, and superbly alpha Diesel, ANTE UP offers a combination of heroine and hero who are made for each other.
Second books are always a little bit of a gamble, and if it’s a second books in a trilogy double that. So I started DANGEROUS CALLING with a little trepidation but hopes for the best. I’m pleased to say that it more than met my expectations. In fact, it exceeded them.
Since I’m always up for a good twist on the classic fairy tales, FREE AGENT sounded right up my alley. And does it ever have all the right twists! A modern version of Snow White’s poisoned apple, werewolves who don’t like red because of a red-hoodie-wearing female in their past, and fairy godparents in mirrors are just some of the aspects of the mythology Nelson has created. Add the nearly non-stop action, an awesome cast of characters, and we’ve got an excellent opening to a new series!
SUMMONED CHAOS bears similarities to other books like The Dresden Files series with rogue wizards battling evil with a can-do attitude and badass fighting skills. While following in the shadows of great wizards like Harry Dresden can be tough and make the storyline feel redundant or boring, Marcus Shifter makes his own footprint in the urban fantasy genre.B eyond his ability
When you read as much as I do, you come to understand pretty quickly that some authors get it, some try, and some give it a shot but don’t really care if they hit the mark or not. VEILED TARGET, I’m pleased to say, is one of the first ones. Alpha males, shifters, badass humans, all mix together in a great story that was very hard to put down.
At first glance, GODDESS AWAKENED had everything I could have wanted from a book – goddesses, magic, romance, a heroine that’s in her forties, and a dog that’s part Labrador. I was positive I’d be loving every word of it. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite work out that way.
The love story between Dragos and Pia Cuelebre extends far past the initial meet-cute and sexual chemistry. Through marriage, child birth, and public scrutiny, these two newly weds are as fun to read about now as when they were coming to terms with their mutual attraction.
I picked up HER WILD PROTECTOR mainly due to the unique take on shifters being able to change into multiple forms. I liked learning the origin of the Metamorphs and the conflicts the face. The plot was pretty interesting and moved at a steady pace with a lot of suspense and action scenes. While I understand the
Having enjoyed TRANCEHACK, I was really looking forward to WITCHLIGHT. With its fascinating world, awesome romance, and great characters, WITCHLIGHT lived up to my expectations and more. Though it is the second book in the Magic Born series, nothing about WITCHLIGHT says sophomore slump – if anything, it’s even better than the first!
