Illegal shifter fight clubs, ancient native magic, and evil corporations oh my. HARVEST MOON is filled with tons of fun ideas and riveting plot. I really enjoyed the idea of an evil shifter corporation with typical evil corporate plans to rule over all shifters and kill anyone in the way.

If you are looking for the ultimate bad-boy wizard, Laytham Ballard, the “hero” of NIGHTWISE will be right up your alley. Unfortunately, you’ll have to swamp through the first third of the book to get to the really interesting stuff.
As a rock-star-famous wizard, Laytham waltzes in and out of the scene, spending money and getting laid wherever he goes. He’s done some dark things, and the first third of the book is devoted to proving that to the reader.
WISH BOUND is a spectacular installment in the Grimm Agency series. While I can’t tell if this is the last book, or if the series is going to continue, WISH BOUND takes the plot line that has grown through the previous books and finishes it out with a bang. With characters we’ve come to know and love, it’s offers a wonderful sense of closure and offers answers to many of the questions that have come up throughout the series.
TAMING HER WOLF is a pretty decent shifter paranormal romance with an interesting take on the werewolf mythology where werewolves have three aspects: human, wolf, and beast. These three aspects seem to be in a constant battle for balance and power.
ARCHANGEL’S ENIGMA has a lot going on in its over arching plot which is to be expected with the Guild Hunter series books. Like its predecessors this book continues to expand on the Cascade storyline hopefully bringing it to a conclusion eventually as I don’t know how much more destruction the earth and people can take before the earth implodes on itself.
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.
One of the many aspects of ASHES I liked aside from it’s fast and clever plot, and creative action sequences was the addition of phoenixes. Their culture and abilities were truly fascinating and fun to learn.
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.
To say the Thieftaker Chronicles series is well researched and practically throws you right into pre-Revolutionary War Boston with its attention to detail of life and events happening at that point in American history is a massive understatement.
