Review: Fangs and Fennel (The Venom Trilogy #2) by Shannon Mayer

Review: Fangs and Fennel (The Venom Trilogy #2) by Shannon Mayer

January 12, 2017 Review 0 ★★★

It doesn’t take long for FANGS & FENNEL to pick up steam. The fast-pacing of the novel promises a fight or a flee in every chapter. While it seems that everyone in FANGS & FENNEL either wants to kill or kiss her, Alena Budrene just wants to divorce her husband, keep her bakery, and be taken seriously by her friends and family.

Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

November 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

VENOM & VANILLA was not quite what I was expecting: I thought it would focus more on the baking and on Alena learning to fit in north of the wall. Unfortunately for her, it’s less of a country or town, and more of a ghetto where supernaturals are dumped, encouraged to stick to their own kind and policed by a clearly corrupt police force.

Review: Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (Untitled #1) by Rosamund Hodge

Review: Bright Smoke, Cold Fire (Untitled #1) by Rosamund Hodge

October 12, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

Romeo and Juliet has never been my favorite. It’s like teenage angst at its best, something which I’m not generally a fan of. BRIGHT SMOKE, COLD FIRE at least didn’t have nearly as much angst as Romeo and Juliet, but it also wasn’t an amazing story either. Hodge seemed to bite off a little more than she could chew, and the result was a scatterbrained story with zombies, magic, and tons of weird stuff going on.

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

Review: Crimson Death (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #25)

October 11, 2016 Review 5 ★★★

Process nerds will find much to love and hate in the latest Anita Blake installment. While readers may tune in to solve a crime spree, that promised police procedure never materializes. Rather, CRIMSON DEATH offers an unexpected love song to therapy, to the rewards of the hard work required to maintain relationships both romantic and otherwise. For the first time in a long, long time, it is the relationship side of Anita’s story that offers progress and hope.

Review: Viking Warrior Rebel (Viking Warriors #2), by Asa Maria Bradley

Review: Viking Warrior Rebel (Viking Warriors #2), by Asa Maria Bradley

October 5, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

Although the back blurb says Vikings are the new Vampires, I’m not sure that’s true. I’ve seen quite a few viking books in the last year, but whereas vampires are easy to incorporate into stories (you can make up your mythology as you go if you need to), vikings are more confined by their link to specific geographical locations and religious backgrounds.

Review: Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow #1) by Danielle Paige

Review: Stealing Snow (Stealing Snow #1) by Danielle Paige

September 30, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

I love fairy tale retellings, and the Snow Queen isn’t a tale you see retold often (not like Beauty and the Beast…) so I was super intrigued by STEALING SNOW. While it had it’s good points, it was unfortunately a little disjointed and seemed to be trying a little too hard at times.
