Note: This book is available online for free. Read it now!

I read this book so quickly, I could barely believe it. The main character’s drive consumed me the way the zombies in the book consume the living.

Tim Kempfer if not a warrior. He’s a librarian on a very simple mission: kill the zombie that murdered his wife and son, and if needed, end them as well. How does he know which zombie he needs to kill in a post-apocalyptic, quarantined Seattle? Easy: his wife’s death was on the news, and it was so graphic and iconic of the disaster that the broadcasts have been playing it on a loop.

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

Review: Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

April 21, 2017 Review 0

This gorgeous illustrated novel is one of the scarier things I have read. Nearly a collection of short stories, the tale is told by three strangers around the table of an inn. It’s a story about war, plague, human weakness and vampires.

These vampires are original and disgusting. The translation of the horrors of the Great War as literal monsters is very effective.

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3), by Shelly Laurenston

THE UNYIELDING is a fun romp through both the Norse underworld and the modern world, with a good dose of mischief and sexy romance. The characters are fun, the monsters are properly horrific and the stakes are high enough to matter. Although Ragnarok is no laughing matter, THE UNYIELDING makes it fun.

If I am the first person to recommend NIMONA to you, drop whatever you’re doing and check out the three first chapters, available as an excerpt. If you don’t fall in love with Nimona and Lord Ballister Blackheart, there is possibly something terribly wrong with you – or your sense of humour.

5Bat! Review: Finders Keepers, by Linnea Sinclair

5Bat! Review: Finders Keepers, by Linnea Sinclair

March 30, 2017 Review 2

This book is the ultimate blend of science-fiction and romance. It will leave you thinking about the world and characters long after you finish the book, wishing you could be back on Trilby’s ship for just a few more pages.

When Captain Trilby Elliot saves Rhis from a crash on a wild jungle planet, he tells her he’s a pilot who got lost. He promises his commanders will pay her to get him back to civilisation. She’s wary, but when he offers to help her finish the repairs she was making to her ship as well, she agrees to take him to the nearest space station – she’s seriously strapped for credits.

This book drew me in from about ten feet away on the shelf. The whole thing is beautiful and feels old in your hand. The story of Johannes Cabal’s fight with the devil takes place in a demonic fair ground, where he is charged with stealing away 100 people’s souls in a year in order to exchange it for his own (which he carelessly sold to the devil a few years back – he figured a scientist wouldn’t need it!).

If you enjoy sexy fluff with characters who make you fall in love with them, THE GEEK JOB is perfect for you. The characters are instantly likeable, even when they’re bad, and their relationship, although initially built on falsehood, is fun to read about and believable. I find this book is nearly addictive – I’ve managed to read it twice in the last year alone.

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

Review: Lost Soul (Harbinger P.I. #1) by Adam J. Wright

March 10, 2017 Review 0

LOST SOUL takes a different approach than mosts Urban Fantasy P.I. novels, and because of that I found it a refreshing change of pace in the genre. The majority of P.I. novels in our genre follow a wizard or if not a wizard some other supernatural. Harbinger is just a vanilla human who’s been trained to investigate and take down the supernatural, all he has is his wits, his assistant, and a few magic items.
