For quite awhile the Arrows have been a group of characters who I’ve been interested in learning more about as I’ve read the Psy-Changling series. It was really neat seeing the interior lives of the Arrows. Aden, one of the Arrows who has been ‘hanging’ around the series for a few books now is finally given a story in SHARDS OF HOPE and it’s a story filled with sadness, pain, loneliness, and as the title aptly says a shard of hope.

BEAUTY AND THE WEREWOLF is a charming paranormal romance filled with much romantic and family angst. It is an even paced story and I enjoyed the werewolf mythos set up in this story. One issue I did have was the fact that Isabelle’s dad seems to be intent on her marrying someone from her pack regardless of the fact that the mythos sets up that if you don’t find your mate you will die after 300 years.
THORN JACK was a bit of a surprise. The cover drew me in more than the description on this one. Especially the hardcover version! But in the end, I was surprised how much I enjoyed THORN JACK.
Whenever I see a new Rainshadow series book come out I admit I get a little excited for more dust bunny adventures. I know, I know they are the sidekicks/adorable pets of the main characters who are fabulous and tough and everything I’d want in a heroine. But I love them.
One of the aspects I enjoyed about DRAGON FALL was the world building. I love seeing different takes on dragon lore and this one was especially unique.The story follows Aoife as she begins to discover this strange new world filled with dragons except of course she discovers it at a time when there is the greatest conflict and danger for the dragons.
FROZEN IN AMBER is part legal drama, and part were-cougar coming of age story, with a little bit of family craziness and gene-splicing mixed in. But if you add in very few moments of levity and what felt like an artificially drawn-out plot, and you have an interesting book that misses the mark by just a bit. And then there is the end, which I had to read twice to make sure I actually got.

In SPIDER’S TRAP Gin is in a new position of power with some different problems to deal with including the not so different constant threats of death. I enjoyed seeing how she dealt with more of Ashland’s underworld, especially since she has been dragged into the center of it and so obviously doesn’t want to be involved. Most of these seedy underworld sort of folk are handled pretty easily with a helping of death by Spider.
SILVER IN THE BLOOD was a book I was very much looking forward to reading. The beautiful cover and author alone (I loved DRAGON SLIPPERS) was enough to intrigue me, and I didn’t even bother reading the description. So going in a bit blind, I was very happy when SILVER IN THE BLOOD lived up to my expectations.
