Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3), by Shelly Laurenston

THE UNYIELDING is a fun romp through both the Norse underworld and the modern world, with a good dose of mischief and sexy romance. The characters are fun, the monsters are properly horrific and the stakes are high enough to matter. Although Ragnarok is no laughing matter, THE UNYIELDING makes it fun.

It’s rare for fantasy books to have a lived-in setting. Instead of existing just to explain backstory to the protagonist, DREAM EATER’s side characters don’t care if Koi Pierce is confused and uncomfortable. DREAM EATER also doesn’t waste time trying to make you like Koi Pierce. You like her or you don’t.

SHADOW WOLF was a confusing mythological mess that overran what could have been a sweet story between two characters. From the beginning of the book, there are so many unanswered questions that the author isn’t interested in addressing that I spent most of the book frowning in confusion.

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: Fangs and Fennel (The Venom Trilogy #2) by Shannon Mayer

January 12, 2017 Review 0

It doesn’t take long for FANGS & FENNEL to pick up steam. The fast-pacing of the novel promises a fight or a flee in every chapter. While it seems that everyone in FANGS & FENNEL either wants to kill or kiss her, Alena Budrene just wants to divorce her husband, keep her bakery, and be taken seriously by her friends and family.

Review: Venom & Vanilla (The Venom Trilogy #1), by Shannon Mayer

November 7, 2016 Review 0

VENOM & VANILLA was not quite what I was expecting: I thought it would focus more on the baking and on Alena learning to fit in north of the wall. Unfortunately for her, it’s less of a country or town, and more of a ghetto where supernaturals are dumped, encouraged to stick to their own kind and policed by a clearly corrupt police force.
