Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

Review: Fellside, by M.R. Carey

April 12, 2016 Review 2 ★★★★

Some people may call FELLSIDE heart-breaking, but that is too gentle. The book rips out your heart, stabs it with a shank made from an old toothbrush, and finishes it off with a few good whacks with a fire-extinguisher for good measure. This book is incredibly violent, but also incredibly touching, with characters that will stick with you long after the last page.

Spark (Feyguard #1) by Anthea Sharp

Spark (Feyguard #1) by Anthea Sharp

April 4, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

Let’s be honest, what guy isn’t attracted to a gamer girl? That was the first thing that drew me to SPARK. The second thing was that SPARK revolved around the fey. In my opinion, werewolves and vampires have gotten over used in urban fantasy and paranormal romance, whereas I think the fey are still fresh. Each of those things on their own would’ve piqued my interest, but Anthea Sharp blended them together to make a truly amazing book.

5 Bats! Review: The Undoing (Call of Crows #2), by Shelly Laurenston

5 Bats! Review: The Undoing (Call of Crows #2), by Shelly Laurenston

March 29, 2016 Review 3 ★★★★★

Shelley Laurenston (who also writes the Dragon Kin series as AG Aiken) has a particular way with heroines who are not your typical kick-ass urban fantasy heroines – and I love it!

Jace is a super interesting, layered character and although her quiet behaviour confuses her sister-Crows, most of us can understand the need to get away from unnecessary chit chat and noise. Jace has a particularly dark “first life”, her life before she was chosen by Skuld to become a Crow at the moment of death. Still, she isn’t overly negative and manages to care for her new family, the rowdy, loud, violent women of the Crows.

Review: Ironheart, by Nico Rosso

Review: Ironheart, by Nico Rosso

IRONHEART has everything I want in a short story: steaming hot romance from the get-go, an easy to follow if dramatic plot, a limited cast of characters that I could love to hear more about, and super powers don’t hurt either. Every since I read KARMA GIRL by Jennifer Estep, super hero romances have had a place in my heart, and IRONHEART has just been added to my favourite short story list.

GRAVE ATTRACTION pulls you in with excellent characters, new and exciting mythology and a great dramatic finale. It managed to blend perfectly all the aspects I’ve come to expect from a book partway through a paranormal romance series, without being overly repetitive or confusing.

Review: The Immortals (Olympus Bound #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky

Review: The Immortals (Olympus Bound #1) by Jordanna Max Brodsky

February 22, 2016 Review 3 ★★★★

For somebody who loves stories with gods and goddesses, THE IMMORTALS description put it right up my alley! While a bit darker than I imagined from the original description I read of the book, THE IMMORTALS is an ambitious debut that manages to pull the Greek gods and goddesses into our modern age in a very unique way.
