PRIDE AND PROMETHEUS is not only a clever, thought-provoking mash-up between two beloved stories -Frankenstein and Pride and Prejudice – it expertly captures the tone and themes of each book. There is such an excellent balance between Gothic Horror and Regency Romance.

MURDER ON THE SUGARLAND EXPRESS is another delightful installment in this series filled with clever twists and turns and unique, likable characters. It was especially fun to read this after seeing the recent Murder on the Orient Express movie and spot the similarities in some of the plot points and characters as the book is an homage to the Agatha Christie story.
THE AFTERLIFE OF HOLLY CHASE is one of those books that has me stumped. It was one of those that while I enjoyed myself while I was reading it, I didn’t absolutely love it, and I’m almost at a loss as to what to say about it in a review. Almost.
SPARKED starts with a smolder rather than a true burn, carefully introducing the characters and their home life. Despite the sluggish start, I was thoroughly hooked once more details of Ivy’s disappearance were revealed, along with the mysterious love interest.

BLACK BIRD OF THE GALLOWS fits in a lot of YA paranormal romance cliches while somehow also managing to be very unique and totally creepy. The creative mythology really gives a lot of oomph to what could be a very flat and boring YA paranormal romance.
ASHES REBORN is a brilliant urban fantasy story with unique characters and a plot filled with action, suspense, and intrigue. The mythology of phoenixes is complex and refreshing in a genre filled with vampires, witches, and werewolves.
RIDE THE STORM picks up right after the events of the previous book, REAP THE WIND and in typical Cassandra Palmer series tradition, we hit the ground running. The beginning of this book is non-stop action, things exploding, and Cassie remarkably not getting too maimed in the process.
Being a collection of short stories, THE SHADOW OMNIBUS was a pretty quick and fun read with five haunting tales of horror and adventure. I was clued in to the fact that this was a collection of short stories by one author and not five after wondering at the similarities of the writing styles and lack of author list.
