I love anthologies. They give you a brief introduction to new authors, just whetting your appetite until you beg for more. That’s how I find a lot of authors. Anyway, on to the stories… Kelley Armstrong’s Stalked is narrated by Clay. This is the first time I have read a […]
I hate lengthy flashbacks in novels. There always seems to be a flashback whenever I least want it. That can definitely be said for Passionate Thirst by Cameron Dean. When I’m reading a novel, I don’t need a whole chapter on how the love interest couple met, especially if the […]
The third novel in Jacquelyn Frank’s Nightwalker series, Elijah, proved to be just as good as the first two. This time, however, instead of focusing on the Demon’s society, we’re taken into the workings of the Lycanthropes. Reading this novel reminded me that Frank doesn’t like conversations as much as […]
This is one of those quirky little series that is quick and fun to read. There’s plenty of humor, a vampire that loves designer clothes, and interesting plot twists that are uncomplicated. I’m not really sure if that’s the word I should use, but this series is a lot of […]
I just finished my first book of the year and it was alright. Dead Girls are Easy by Terri Garey wasn’t the best novel I’ve read in awhile, but it did keep me reading. I’m also hesitate to call it a part of the paranormal genre. The idea of voodoo […]
Honestly, I’m not really sure what to say about this series. The Aisling Grey, Guardian series by Katie MacAlister is one of my favorites. It’s one of those reads that’s easy to pick up when you’re looking for something to read and you’re not wanting anything heavy. The plot moves […]
I can stop pacing the apartment now! I finally got my hands on the latest Anita Blake book – the Harlequin – and I have to say, it was well worth the wait. The succubus/incubus relationship that has been predominate in the last couple of books takes a back seat […]
Undead and Uneasy is the latest installment in the Betsy Taylor series by MaryJanice Davidson. While I’m a big fan of this series, I have to say I wasn’t that crazy about this contribution. It just seemed like the main character, Betsy, did more complaining and there wasn’t that much […]
Since it is the first novel in the Nightwalkers series by J. Frank, Jacob explained a lot of the little things that were missing in the second novel, Gideon. Of course, if you’re going to read any series, you should start with the first novel, but I didn’t find Jacob first. I have to stand by my review of Gideon. It’s a good change to read about “good” demons instead of the kind everyone wants to destroy. It’s going to be interesting to see how this series continues. The third novel in the series is coming out later this year and I’ll definitely be checking it out.
The library is a wondrous thing. They have all of these books you can check out for free. Jesse and I made a trip there this past weekend and I found a book by an author I was unfamiliar with – Gideon by Jacquelyn Frank. The second novel in a series called the Nightwalkers, it takes a different spin on the supernatural – they are not necessarily evil, just different. For example, demons exist, but not in the sense that we’re familiar with. Instead, they appear human, but when they are summoned by necromancers, that’s when they take on the form that society sees as demonic. I’ve been reading a lot of the supernatural lately and all of the books have demons being evil and they are the ones you have to take down. So it’s refreshing to read something from a demons point of view, where it’s the humans that are interrupting the demons lifestyle and not the other way around.
If you like the supernatural and are looking for a new author or just something different, check this author out. I have only read the one novel, but I have requested the first novel from the library and am waiting for it.
