Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

July 15, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY is without a doubt light, quirky, and entertaining urban fantasy. A quick read, IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY has a heroine more comfortable surrounded by books than doing magic, and a hero (anti-hero?) who drives a muscle car. It is not your typical urban fantasy, and that’s one of the things I loved about it!

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

Review: Trace of Magic (Diamond City Magic #1) by Diana Pharaoh Francis

July 7, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

TRACE OF MAGIC has been on my list of books to read for quite awhile, and when it showed up on Audible a few months ago I finally picked it up and just recently got a chance to listen to it. TRACE OF MAGIC was much better than I expected it to be, and I wished I’d listened to it as soon as it came out on Audible.

Although not as enjoyable as CREEPY TOWN, WEBS did an excellent job of advancing the plot of team two’s explorations of magic, and offered a brief glimpse into the history of the Bookburners (or Societas Librorum Occultorum, as I suppose it’s called).

Early Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson #10) by Darynda Jones

**Warning! Spoilers for the previous books ahead!**

THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE is another exciting installment in the Charley Davidson series. Though the story and Charley’s history are getting increasingly complex, I still enjoyed the story, drama and action that come along with Charley. This is not a series I’d recommend getting into in the middle, and THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE only proves my point, with pieces of the plot relying on information from previous books to understand all of the nuances of Charley’s story.

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

June 23, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

Some of the best stories start with a bang, and RUNAWAY VAMPIRE starts with our main character getting run over by an RV, whilst naked, whilst running away from his captives who still have his twin brother. BANG! I thought the last few books in the Argenau series lacked action, but I was pleasantly surprised with this book, adoring the characters and storyline as well.

Dante Notte and his twin Tomasso have been featured in quite a few of the books before, acting as bodyguards, teaching new vampires how to feed, and punching a few bad guys in the face. I was pleased that their stories happened separately though, since it gives more room for the individual romances to develop.

Review: To Love A Wolf (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #4), by Paige Tyler

Review: To Love A Wolf (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #4), by Paige Tyler

June 13, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

It’s no secret that I adore the SWAT (Special Wolf Alpha Team) series, having given 4 and 5 bats to the last two titles in the series. I’m pleased to say that TO LOVE A WOLF did not disappoint, keeping the werewolf/criminal action high, the romance hot and the mystery strong throughout the whole book. Cooper and Everly are super together and I finished their story in just one day.

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

Review: Just One Damned Thing After Another (The Chronicles of St Mary’s #1), by Jodi Taylor

June 10, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

While I was reading Just One Damned Thing After Another, I couldn’t stop thinking of another writer: Terry Pratchett. That has to be one of the highest praise I can give a book, and that was when I was only a few chapters in. It pressed all the right geeky buttons, while still managing to keep up the suspense and danger inherent in travelling back in time to observe critical moments in history.
