The Fly By Night series is quickly becoming one series I know I don’t want to miss. Though categorized as paranormal romance, FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM reads more like an urban fantasy with a romantic subplot, with the mystery taking center stage. The characters are really what shine, making FLIGHT FROM MAYHEM a super enjoyable read.

Early Review: Imprudence (The Custard Protocol #2) by Gail Carriger

As we start IMPRUDENCE, the second book in The Custard Protocol, we find Prudence has reached her majority and is now a full grown “ish” adult ready to taste some independence. Unfortunately she now has no outside protection against people who want to kill her and as a result of her actions in the previous book she’s on the bad side of the Queen.

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

Some of the best stories start with a bang, and RUNAWAY VAMPIRE starts with our main character getting run over by an RV, whilst naked, whilst running away from his captives who still have his twin brother. BANG! I thought the last few books in the Argenau series lacked action, but I was pleasantly surprised with this book, adoring the characters and storyline as well.

Dante Notte and his twin Tomasso have been featured in quite a few of the books before, acting as bodyguards, teaching new vampires how to feed, and punching a few bad guys in the face. I was pleased that their stories happened separately though, since it gives more room for the individual romances to develop.

Review: Night Sins, by Lisa Renee Jones

Review: Night Sins, by Lisa Renee Jones

June 21, 2016 Review 0 ★★

There is a delicate balance that short stories need to strike, where readers need to know the characters enough to be invested in them, and need a decent conclusion to either the action or the romance (or both!) in order to work. That’s a lot to cram into a small format, and NIGHT SINS only manages to make you care about the characters. There were so many loose ends that I was frankly surprised by the last page turn.

I found Kayla a bit difficult to get to know, but by the end I liked her. As a Watcher, a concept which is kinda explained in the prologue, she is charged with protecting Las Vegas from the things that go bump in the night.

MARKED IN FLESH was not exactly what I expected, but it was everything I didn’t know I wanted. I cannot recommend this series enough, and I cannot over-emphasize how wonderful all the books are. This is definitely one where it is worth it to start at the beginning. As book four in The Others series, MARKED IN FLESH rewards readers of the series with storylines and little vignettes here and there that may not mean as much if you haven’t read earlier books.

Release Day Review:  Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Release Day Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

March 8, 2016 Review 1 ★★★★

FIRE TOUCHED is another brilliantly magical book in the Mercy Thompson series. Typically I’d start to complain by the 9th book in a series that all of this has happened before and (mostly likely) will all happen again. With this series there really is little if no repetition of plot points that I can remember happening. Some new danger is always around the corner for Mercy to battle.
