5bat! Review: Under Her Skin, by Margo Bond Collins

5bat! Review: Under Her Skin, by Margo Bond Collins

July 21, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★★

With a violent killer on the loose who targets young shifter girls, Lindi Parker has to accept help from all sides, even if that means sharing her deepest secret with the very shifters who are tasked with killing her kind. Lindi is a truly different heroine, one who battles her cold, scaly side with the human side her adoptive parents have taught her to emulate; it’s a daily battle between nature and nurture, and it’s a battle she can’t afford to lose even for a second.

Were-snakes are a rare breed in shapeshifter fiction, and UNDER HER SKIN takes advantage of that to make their powers truly unique, even within the world of the book. Were-snakes, or lamia, are so feared because they are incredibly powerful, able to shift in ways no other type of shifter can.

Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

Review: It Happened One Doomsday by Laurence MacNaughton

July 15, 2016 Review 0 ★★★

IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY is without a doubt light, quirky, and entertaining urban fantasy. A quick read, IT HAPPENED ONE DOOMSDAY has a heroine more comfortable surrounded by books than doing magic, and a hero (anti-hero?) who drives a muscle car. It is not your typical urban fantasy, and that’s one of the things I loved about it!

Review: Webs (Bookburners #2.2) by Andrea Phillips

Review: Webs (Bookburners #2.2) by Andrea Phillips

June 30, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

Although not as enjoyable as CREEPY TOWN, WEBS did an excellent job of advancing the plot of team two’s explorations of magic, and offered a brief glimpse into the history of the Bookburners (or Societas Librorum Occultorum, as I suppose it’s called).

Early Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson #10) by Darynda Jones

Early Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson #10) by Darynda Jones

June 27, 2016 Review 0 ★★★★

**Warning! Spoilers for the previous books ahead!**

THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE is another exciting installment in the Charley Davidson series. Though the story and Charley’s history are getting increasingly complex, I still enjoyed the story, drama and action that come along with Charley. This is not a series I’d recommend getting into in the middle, and THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE only proves my point, with pieces of the plot relying on information from previous books to understand all of the nuances of Charley’s story.
