Sometimes a book series can go stale, especially after a huge arc ends and the characters are left with not much to do. Luckily POISON PROMISE shows that the Elemental Assassin series is still going strong after eleven books. When the story starts Gin is given only a small break from fighting a big bad or being beaten to near death which I’ve come to expect to happen at least once in each

I love a good cover, and any cover that puts a children’s rhyme in my head is great in my book. “Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her father forty whacks…” Mixing paranormal and historical elements can be tricky, but I think Cherie Priest’s MAPLECROFT nails it. What do you think?
Trying to stay warm? As one of the lucky citizens of the midwest (aka that place where the snow won’t freaking stop) I’m planning on hibernating through our next two feet of snow predicted for this week. Whether or not you’re in the same predicament, here are some deals that are just too good to pass up!
THE SPIDER is the Elemental Assassin book I’ve been waiting for. I’ll admit to being a few books behind in my reading, but this prequel installment doesn’t require you to be all caught up on current events to enjoy it, or even be a reader of the series at all! Full of the standard Estep drama, action and witty quips, THE SPIDER was everything I wished for and more.
From old school werewolves to high fantasy heroines, this week’s batch of covers is great. I’d like to apologize now for the shouting, there were a few covers that engendered a strong response in me, both good and bad, but I managed to get it together by the end. Enjoy!

In honor of it being August, and kids going back to school, we thought we’d do a quick round up of some paranormal and urban fantasy school themed favorites. Though as we say below, Rose and Dmitri from Vampire Academy did mostly inspire this post, once we got the wheels turning we realized there were lots of options for us to chose from. Was there a category we should have included? Do you agree with all of our choices for the categories below? Are you excited about going back to school?

HEART OF VENOM has some wonderfully intense and graphic fight scenes, a plot that doesn’t slow down, and bad guys that bring new meaning to the word sadistic. This book follows a very similar formula to the plots in the previous books of the Elemental Assassin series and while I adore this formula I really come back for Gin’s superb fighting skills and the relationship she has with her friends and family.

There were few covers where I had the same opinion as Kristina and our guest, Tez of Tez Says. We were universally united in our dislike of Harlequin Nocturne’s retro covers. What do you guys think?
