Review: Immortalis: Hunters & Prey by Katie Salidas

Review: Immortalis: Hunters & Prey by Katie Salidas

January 26, 2011 Review 4

Vampire stories have become so prevalent in today’s fiction that even readers outside the genre are aware of the trend. This preponderance of preternatural fantasy can make it more and more difficult to find a truly original spin on the vampire myth. Sparkles, soul mates, daywalkers, and boarding school… even though there are great examples of each of these tropes, sometimes it’s hard to find the good hidden amongst the derivative. HUNTER AND PREY stands out from the crowd by being retro, embracing parts of the old school vampire myth that are largely neglected in Urban Fantasy today.

Review: Haunted by Your Touch [anthology]

Review: Haunted by Your Touch [anthology]

January 6, 2011 Review 2

This anthology hinges around the forbidden and irresistible; the compelling touch of the person you know you shouldn’t be with but just can’t deny. Of the three stories presented, Jeaniene Frost did not disappoint, Shayla Black’s story didn’t work for me, and Sharie Kohler’s Darkest Temptation led me to add her other books to my TBR pile. All in all, a well balanced collection and an enjoyable read.

Entice Me at Twilight by Shayla Black

Entice Me at Twilight by Shayla Black

December 2, 2010 Review 1

While the quick snap of love at first sight is a common occurrence in paranormal romances, falling in “trust” usually takes the span of an entire book or series. I would have guessed that a heroine with the magical ability to sense lies would have a fast track through the trust building process, but ENTICE ME AT TWILIGHT proved me wrong.
