Review: Demon Moon (Prof Croft #1) by Brad Magnarella

Review: Demon Moon (Prof Croft #1) by Brad Magnarella

January 26, 2017 Review 0

If Harry Dresden were a college professor in a post financial crash New York City he would be Professor Croft. No, DEMON MOON is not a carbon copy of the Dresden Files, but there are enough similarities that I feel at home in the Prof Croft universe.

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

January 23, 2017 Review 2

THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE is nearly everything I wished it would be. After hearing comparisons to UPROOTED, THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE had a lot to live up to, UPROOTED being one of my recent favorite fantasy books. Luckily, it was a delightful read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Review: Shade Chaser (City of Crows #2), by Clara Coulson

Review: Shade Chaser (City of Crows #2), by Clara Coulson

December 27, 2016 Review 0

SHADE CHASER was a rare type of book, where the police work and procedures felt real, despite the supernatural nature of the cases they are investigating. There was paperwork, there was calling for backup when necessary and there were life-altering injuries to important characters.

This is the second book of the series, and although I had questions about the events of the first book, I never felt too confused to not be interested by the current investigation.

Review: Shadow Rites (Jane Yellowrock #10) by Faith Hunter

Review: Shadow Rites (Jane Yellowrock #10) by Faith Hunter

December 12, 2016 Review 0

The Jane Yellowrock books have the distinction of being a long running series that I can’t keep track of at all but enjoy from book to book. I don’t know what makes details slide away, the similarity of Jane’s nicknames for people? The complexity of mythologies that always underpin the “big reveal” at the end? I know Ricky is gone (in a rather unsatisfying way), Jane and Beast are partners, and vampires are dangerous. Additional details are refreshed in the opening chapters.

Review: The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #3) by Erika Johansen

Review: The Fate of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling #3) by Erika Johansen

December 9, 2016 Review 2

THE FATE OF THE TEARLING left me with lots of feelings. The first two-thirds of the book were rock-star. And, to be fair, the last third of the book was good too, it just wasn’t what I was expecting. So, without spoiling anything, I am going to try to review this book for you. First of all, if you read the first two, definitely read the third. You’ll want the closure that it provides. And if you haven’t read the first two, I definitely recommend them. The trilogy has a very different feel than a lot of other fantasy trilogies, to its benefit.

Release Day Review: A Wolf Unleashed (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #5) by Paige Tyler

December 6, 2016 Review 0

A Wolf Unleashed keeps the action high and the romance steamy for the duration of the book. With dog-fighting rings, a hot new drug that’s killing people at an alarming rate and a spat of college girls going missing, there’s a lot for the Dallas SWAT team to be involved with, even if their supervisors would rather they just break doors down on command. Too bad these shifters can smell trouble coming a mile away.

Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate, by Eve Langlais

November 28, 2016 Review 0

There are so many fun surprises in LEGAL WOLF’S MATE that I was grinning the whole time I was reading it. The characters are fun, the mystery is just weird enough to be interesting, and the romance is smoking hot.

In a world where only men can be werewolves, the women who they love need to be strong. Gavin isn’t sure that Megan is strong enough to deal with being a wolf’s mate, but as soon as he sees her sitting in his waiting room, he knows he has to have her.

Release Day Review: Dark Protector (Moon Shifter, #6) by Katie Reus

Release Day Review: Dark Protector (Moon Shifter, #6) by Katie Reus

November 15, 2016 Review 2

DARK PROTECTOR does a fabulous job of catching up the Moon Shifter series, while introducing a fresh conflict and interesting characters outside the ranch where most of the characters live. Vampires are missing during a particularly sensitive time in vampire/werewolf relations, and a war between two clans would be bad news for all supernatural creatures. It’s in the best interest of all parties involved to find the missing vamps, which is why Natalia and Aldrick end up working together.
