THickman-Song of the Dragon

Song of the Dragon by Tracy Hickman

12 August 2012 Trish 4

I really wanted to like Song of the Dragon by Tracy Hickman. I was a big fan of the Dragonlance series and I was excited to read it, but I was terribly disappointed. Drakis returns from the War of the Nineth Throne — the last of the great dwarven wars — […]

JDRobb-Naked in Death

Naked in Death by J.D. Robb

14 July 2012 Trish 5

Every time I mentioned LE to my Mother-In-Law, she would start to talk about Nora Roberts’ (aka J.D. Robb) “In Death” series. Then I got jury duty and needed to take a paperback since they wouldn’t allow e-readers at the courthouse, so I borrowed the first of the series, Naked in […]

Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter by AE Moorat

2 May 2012 Trish 1

I couldn’t finish Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter. Actually I barely got into the story, but by the third fight scene I realized that I did not possess the constitution to finish this book. There were many staff at Kensington Palace, fulfilling many roles; a man who was employed to catch […]

Grave Dance by Kalayna Price

1 May 2012 Trish 1

As soon as I finished Grave Witch, I had to get my hands on Grave Dance. This sequel left me on the edge of my seat drooling over the yummy man candy and wanting more. Whoever said dead men tell no tales obviously never met Alex Craft. After a month spent […]

CSGriffith-Rift Walker

The Rift Walker by Clay & Susan Griffith

28 August 2011 Trish 0

Clay and Susan can really take you on a good ride. The Rift Walker picks up right where The Greyfriar left off, in the steampunk world dominated by the war between Vampires & Humans. Princess Adele struggles with a life of marriage and obligation as her Equatorian Empire and their […]

MHodder-Curious Case of the Clockwork Man

The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man by M. Hodder

16 July 2011 Trish 1

Mesmerism, Fairies, and Zombies, OH MY! Not usually what I think of with a Steampunk story, but somehow Mark Hodder blends all these things into his version of the Arthurian world. It’s done in such a way that it makes sense in the world that’s getting further and further away […]

RAppleton-Mysterious Lady Law

The Mysterious Lady Law by R. Appleton

29 May 2011 Trish 0

Lady Law, a brilliant investigator or a beautiful, arrogant fraud? At first I thought that I couldn’t possibly cheer on such a pompous, arrogant woman, then I realized that she wasn’t going to be a protagonist. Once I realized this (after 3 chapters), I could finally finish The Mysterious Lady […]
