Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

21 September 2015 Sarah 0

A dark and twisty story that encapsulates the best that urban fantasy has to offer, Menagerie by Rachel Vincent is supremely satisfying.  In the back of my mind, I heard dark, discordant calliope music while reading (creepy and foreboding).  A crazy alternate reality of paranoid humans seeking to cage the monsters […]

Odd Melody by Virginia Nelson

24 August 2015 Sarah 0

Odd Melody, book 2 in Virginia Nelson’s The Odd Series, is just as fun and satisfying as book 1. Half-fae/half-siren, Janie Smith, hasn’t had an opportunity to catch her breath since she came fully into her siren powers and found out that all sorts of magical creatures really exist. She’s […]

The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time by Alyssa Richards

Soul mates. Seeing and talking to ghosts. Psychic powers that influence people. Yup, The Fine Art of Deception: Undoing Time by Alyssa Richards had everything this hopeless romantic, paranormal girl wanted. Even though I ran across a few minor issues, I was quite taken by this novel. It had my […]

Vengeance of the Demon by Diana Rowland

And cue the fan girl squealing…I friggin LOVE the Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland, so when I saw Vengeance of the Demon up on Netgalley, I did a mental happy dance. I devoured Vengeance of the Demon in a few short hours and as always, Rowland leaves me begging for more. Demon […]

Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler

7 April 2015 Sarah 0

I’ve read and enjoyed Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series, so I was pretty geeked when I heard about Jinn and Juice, the first book in her new urban fantasy series.  While I liked and will continue the series, there was quite a bit of world-building to absorb that, at times, took […]

26 March 2014 Natassia 0

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is brought to life in Vaughn Entwistle’s The Revenant of Thraxton Hall. With an ease of writing, Entwistle transports us to the man behind Holmes and creates an intriguing story. Tricksters and phantasms abound as Entwistle keeps us on the edge of our seats trying to […]

Liesel Schwarz starts off with a bang in A Conspiracy of Alchemists, the first installment of the Chronicles of Light & Shadow. An alternate history tale, Schwarz brings elements of steampunk to her adventure. Readers and non-readers alike will feel at home with the familiar themes and no-frills take. LEAVE […]

Darkness Dawns by Dianne Duvall

24 January 2013 Nikki R 0

When it comes to vampires or werewolves, for the most part we’ve read it all. Occasionally a writer comes out and throws you for a loop, making you fall in love with these creatures all over again. That’s how I feel about Dianne Duvall’s Immortal Guardian series. She takes an […]

DDuvall-Phantom Shadows

Phantom Shadows by Dianne Duvall

10 October 2012 Nikki R 0

I was a bit skeptical when I first held Phantom Shadows by Dianne Duvall in my hands.  The previous book, Night Reigns, was pretty good but I had a few small issues with some of the things that happened.   I don’t know if Phantom Shadows is just that much […]

No Picture

Voracious by V.K. Forrest

10 August 2012 Nikki R 0

Sometimes when you throw an old idea or concept upside down, it’s not for the best.  It makes the reader question things. It makes the reader confused.  It can even make the reader laugh, when you aren’t meaning to be funny.  That’s what happened to me, when I tried to […]
