Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: Trailer Park Fae (Gallow and Ragged #1) by Lilith Saintcrow

September 22, 2015 Review 2

For all of its intriguing cover and title, TRAILER PARK FAE has a lot more fae and a lot less trailer park than one would expect. Frequently confusing, full of characters with multiples names, with a plot that didn’t make itself clear until way farther through the book than it should have, TRAILER PARK FAE is a different take on fae in urban fantasy, but a bit of a slow read.

Review: Frozen in Amber by Phillis Ames

August 6, 2015 Review 0

FROZEN IN AMBER is part legal drama, and part were-cougar coming of age story, with a little bit of family craziness and gene-splicing mixed in. But if you add in very few moments of levity and what felt like an artificially drawn-out plot, and you have an interesting book that misses the mark by just a bit. And then there is the end, which I had to read twice to make sure I actually got.

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: Bridged By Love (Kagan Wolves #1) by Nancy Corrigan

Review: Bridged By Love (Kagan Wolves #1) by Nancy Corrigan

July 20, 2015 Review 2

I tend to like my books quite spicy – and I used to think the more sex the better. Well, I’ve been proven wrong, and in a werewolf novel to boot. Although the sex scenes in BRIDGED BY LOVE were well written, I really could have done with way less of them. By the end of the book, I was skipping pages of erections and orgasms – more story, please!

Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Review: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

September 23, 2014 Review 5

SALT & STORM sounded so good, but unfortunately, the description and the book don’t actually match up, and not for the better. With a whiney heroine, strong deviation from a typical romance plotline, and some frustrating questions left unanswered, SALT & STORM isn’t a book I’ll be revisiting.

Review: Feuds by Avery Hastings

Review: Feuds by Avery Hastings

September 4, 2014 Review 0

Having just finished FEUDS I’m having a problem – I’m still not entirely sure what it was about. Set in the future, check. Dystopian, also check. There are Priors, there are Gens/Imps, and they sort of co-exist. Except when they don’t. There’s an imminent election and whispers of a disease. And an underground fight club deal that can save a family from life in the slums. Somehow.
