The least historical feeling of the Scandals With Bite series, BITE AT FIRST SIGHT has all the hallmarks of a good paranormal romance novel. It’s got some hot sexual tension, some good old hidden feelings of love, and some supernatural drama, as well.
Why the low rating for HER SECRET AGENT? Well, there just wasn’t enough story and what was there was either confusing because I didn’t remember much from HER LONE WOLF, or was just not compelling enough for me to be really invested in what was happening.
A sexy mix of historical setting and paranormal romance, the Darkest London series doesn’t skimp on magic or chemistry. SOULBOUND, at long last, explores the origins of the mysterious GIM and Adam, their king.
WITCH UPON A STAR, the third book in the Midnight Magic Mystery series, is really tough for me to write a review for. I have seriously conflicting feelings about the events of the book and while it was not poorly written, I think the content is a bit off-putting and not what one would expect from this author.
Set in summertime Paris, MOONLIGHT AND DIAMONDS features an American werewolf alpha, looking for the right werewolf gal to start his own pack, and a cold Parisian beauty who has been running away from her wild side for years. For such a short book, the evolution of the characters and their relationship was believable and mostly well-paced. The mystery was fun and the varied paranormal world-building was interesting.
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.
The premise of a human becoming embroiled in the mythological world of the Greek gods is a pretty interesting one. I haven’t really read too many Greek god stories so I jumped at the opportunity to read ARES’ TEMPTATION and the plot sounded fun. I liked how Ares’ was tricked into associating with humans for the first time in well, ever apparently.
DEADEYE, the first book in The Mutant Files series by Dietz, has a kick-ass cover, a potentially awesome premise, and not much else.
I was so excited to hear that there was going to be a new series dedicated to Prudence, the daughter of Conall and Alexia Maccon from the Parasol Protectorate series. Prudence was such an interesting child who could steal the abilities of any supernatural she touched that a whole new series dedicated to her hijinks as a young adult just had to be written. PRUDENCE is an absolute delight with dangerous new creatures and high skies dirgible adventures, odd new supernatural characters and mysteries, and the typical witty fancifullness I’ve come to expect and enjoy from Gail Carriger’s work.
I enjoy reading about dragon shifters in general and I like the concept of the Dragon Heat series with its epic war between dragons and knights spanning over generations. WICKED DARK DRAGON expands on the intriguing mythology giving a basis for the hatred between dragons and knights.
