Review: Company Town by Madeline Ashby

Review: Company Town by Madeline Ashby

May 17, 2016 Review 2

I feel like COMPANY TOWN snuck up on me; at first I was reading a pretty good dystopian-type novel, and then BAM, it turned into a fabulous, terrifyingly too-close-for-comfort near scifi with interesting new concepts and amazingly real characters.

Early Review: Roses and Rot by Kat Howard

Early Review: Roses and Rot by Kat Howard

May 16, 2016 Review 0

Extremely compelling, ROSES AND ROT is a book that grabbed me from the first few pages and didn’t let go. This is a book that kept me up late, that I read in one sitting. It simultaneously drags the reader to keep turning the pages but also manages to feel like a languid, meandering walk that you wish could last forever.

Review: The Voodoo Killings: A Kincaid Strange Novel, by Kristi Charish

May 15, 2016 Review 0

Kincaid Sinclair has just had her livelihood made illegal, discovers a ghost trap in her lobby and now a random zombie shows up at her favourite bar… She’s having a rough day in Seattle. And of course, it’s raining.

THE VOODOO KILLINGS takes place in the wet, ghost-filled world of Seattle, where a new police chief has put a stop on using mediums to question murder victims and witnesses, either in zombie or ghost form. Overnight, Kincaid has lost her main source of income and her Detective boyfriend too. He says it’s not related, but she figures it is; when you raise the dead for a living, you gotta trust your gut feeling.

Review: The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant (Fred, the Vampire Accountant #1) by Drew Hayes

Review: The Utterly Uninteresting and Unadventurous Tales of Fred, the Vampire Accountant (Fred, the Vampire Accountant #1) by Drew Hayes

May 4, 2016 Review 2

THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I love urban fantasy and paranormal romance, but sometimes they get a little too serious. These are stories about werewolves, vampires, witches, and eldritch horrors. These are ridiculous and crazy things, I love the serious stories, but it’s fun to take a comedic twist on the genre.

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.
