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.

Review: Waking The Bear (Shifter Wars #1), by Kerry Adrienne

August 10, 2016 Review 2

I tend to be a bit of a dork about puns and double-entendres, and WAKE THE BEAR definitely had funny moments that were a welcome respite from some of the dark characters. It was a bit short, and the main villain was one-dimensional to the point of being annoying, but the main characters were fun and their interactions were the glowing part of the novel.

Review: Bound by the Night by Megan Hart

Review: Bound by the Night by Megan Hart

August 1, 2016 Review 0

Megan Hart has been a long time favorite for me in contemporary romance. Raw, visceral chemistry married to a realism that manages to intrigue and haunt. Seeing her name on a Paranormal Romance was an exciting treat, but I found that the realism Hart brings to romance did not carry over to believable “paranormal”.

Review: Mythic, Volume 1 (Mythic #1-8), by Phil Hester, John McCrea

July 16, 2016 Review 0

The best part of MYTHIC, VOLUME 1 was the prologue; the rest of the book didn’t quite keep up with the action and tone. Still, it had some bright moments where it twisted mythology and religion into new and surprising shapes.

In a world where scientists can refuse to die (and turn into ghosts because they don’t believe in anything enough to move on) and demons can possess peaceful rock creatures, it’s a good thing Mythic is there there to police things.

Review: The Transference Engine by Julia Verne St. John

Review: The Transference Engine by Julia Verne St. John

July 8, 2016 Review 1

I think a lot of readers like to imagine a world in which they could own their own cafe/bookstore, or maybe I’m just weird thinking that would be cool. But that’s what made me pick up THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE, a story about someone who owns her own cafe/bookstore in a steampunk world sounded pretty awesome. Few books get me as interested in them as THE TRANSFERENCE ENGINE did just by reading the synopsis, however, it wasn’t quite as good as I wanted it to be.

Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

Release Day Review: Shadow Rider (Shadow #1) by Christine Feehan

June 28, 2016 Review 0

With it’s strong hero and sweet heroine, SHADOW RIDER checks off many of the boxes that I love in a romance, plus, it takes place in Chicago! Though not the focus, Feehan has created an interesting mythology, and given the reader side characters’ stories to look forward to as well!
