DANGEROUS MATING is sort of like the “Goldilocks” of paranormal romances. It’s not too dark, serious, and complex but also not super light, fluffy, and silly. It’s just right in the middle which is great to have in a genre. The plot is fast-paced and action-packed- filled with moments that keep you constantly on the edge of your seat yet infused with enough levity that things never get too dark.

BEARING HIS SINS by Eve Langlais
This one was my not too good rated story, where I lost interest towards the end and had to force myself to finish it just so I didn’t have to label it a DNF. My main issue was Cole.
Tension is a major mood in WAXING MOON which is felt in so many tones from Julie having to deal with conflicting desires for how Julie should live her life to the very real threat of a rival supernatural group bent on killing her son, Carson. Much of the story is action-packed and pretty thrilling to read.
THE CURIOUS AFFAIR OF THE WITCH AT WAYSIDE CROSS captures the Victorian interest in the supernatural elements really well with the plot revolving around a mysterious society and talk of otherworldly characters.
LURE OF OBLIVION is a pretty fun, action-filled installment of the Mercury Pack series. The plot is really compelling and complex mostly involving a clash between shifters and small town humans. What struck me in this story was the utter brutality and pettiness of the bad guys.
While I am not super great at keeping up with what’s “in” in science fiction books, Jim C. Hines is always on my radar for some fun, creative science fiction storytelling when I do decided to delve into this genre.
SONOFAWITCH! is a quick and fun compilation of stories about witches having various sorts of misadventures. After reading so many heavy stories it was fun to read light, silly stories that effortlessly weaved some magical mishaps into them.
One of the great things about the Argeneau series is that you don’t really have to read every previous book to have an understanding of what is going on plot-wise. This is pretty nice as I seem to randomly skip around from book to book in a haphazard manner with this series.
ASHES REBORN is a brilliant urban fantasy story with unique characters and a plot filled with action, suspense, and intrigue. The mythology of phoenixes is complex and refreshing in a genre filled with vampires, witches, and werewolves.
