The A Lion’s Pride series has been consistently excellent. Each book introduced fun new characters and situations for them to tackle. WHEN A LIONESS POUNCES is no different, introducing cool new mythology and keeping up with the unstoppable group of lionesses we’ve learned to love since the first book.

BITE SOMEBODY ELSE is a hilarious and irreverent romp of a vampire romance story. While there were some funny bits and quirky characters (my favorite kind of character) I found it to come off as a bit too juvenile at times and the plot seemed to meander and drag towards the beginning and end which obviously lessened my overall enjoyment of the book.
With SHADOW REAPER, Feehan has managed to improve a series I already enjoyed. The part I liked, the sexy and dark vibe, was maintained, but the main characters felt more realistic and not so over-the-top. Also, the very original world continues to grow, and I find myself looking forward to all of the Ferraro siblings’ stories!
COUGAR BAIT, the second in the Cougarville series expanded on the series’ complex and fascinating world with a unique take on shifters that I hadn’t come across before. Interesting world-building with an action-packed plot aside,
While BREAKING certainly met its goal of being a thriller, I was mostly disappointed with the book. The hints of the supernatural were disappointing and though it kept my interest, there were too many questions left unanswered for me to be completely satisfied with the read.
The vibe one gets from the cover of THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC is that the contents within will be lighthearted and cutesy. The story delivers exactly that – an excellent example of a time a cover is perfect for the book. Unfortunately, while lighthearted and fun, I do have a few complaints about THE BEST KIND OF MAGIC.
With the long wait for WHITE HOT to be released, I was a little concerned that my expectations had gotten a bit too high. Luckily, WHITE HOT met and exceeded those expectations, leaving me ready to re-read as soon as I was finished. WHITE HOT is nearly perfect paranormal romance: excellent world building coupled with three-dimensional characters, and a great plot line to top it off.
A step up from its predecessors, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI is a welcome departure from the all-action, little-plot formula readers are familiar with from the first two novels. Delving deeper into supernatural politics, and significantly raising the stakes, OWL AND THE ELECTRIC SAMURAI shows an maturation of both Charish’s writing, and the main character, Owl.
WITHIN THE SANCTUARY OF WINGS is the rare, magical beast that manages to be both a fitting series finale as well as a complete and utter surprise.
Action layered upon politics upon history, COLD REIGN is a procedural that doesn’t slow down. Long time fans will enjoy Jane’s ever developing relationships and magic, but even those new to the series will find lots to enjoy in this installment.
