The Black Tide Rising Series continues in John Ringo’s third entry, Islands of Rage and Hope. Continuing the tale of the epic family that is Wolf Squadron, Ringo opens up the story to other parts of the world. The story unmistakably gives the zombie apocalypse military lifestyle, making the reader […]

After the Blood by Marjorie M. Liu

10 September 2014 Sarah 1

Amish. Vampires.  Need I say more?  Didn’t think so.  A standalone novella set in a dystopian world devastated by plague, After the Blood by Marjorie M. Liu is rife with imagery and mystery.  The blurb certainly got my attention, and the story of plague and semi-sentient forest more than lived […]

The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R Carey

28 July 2014 Natassia 2

A phenomenal entry into the zombie apocalypse genre, M.R Carey’s The Girl With All the Gifts is a book for the ages. Carey brings to life a world which is so believable yet foreign; a fact which works wonderfully against the backdrop of the United Kingdom. The story line is […]

Queue the Quipster Review: The Affinity Bridge by George Mann

Airships and automatons are abound in The Affinity Bridge by George Mann, the first book that was suggested to me for my Queue the Quipster feature. This entertaining detective story is a delightful piece of steampunk fiction and Mann delivers a fun mystery with the beginning to his Newbury & […]

Night Betrayed by Joss Ware

Honestly, the only thing I kept thinking while reading Night Betrayed by Joss Ware was “They’re old!!” It’s true. Theo was almost 80 and Selena was 50, though neither of them looked it. Unsurprisingly, Ware managed to enthrall me with their story despite their age. The Change that devastated the […]

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 […]

When Darkness Comes by Alexandra Ivy

27 April 2012 Nikki R 0

Anytime I get a new vampire book in my hands, I’m giddy with glee.  I’m a vamp girl.  Jackie assured me I’d love Alexandra Ivy’s Guardian of Eternity series and sent all she had my way.  I’ve FINALLY gotten to her first book, When Darkness Comes, and while I can’t […]

Working Stiff by Rachel Caine

29 November 2011 Nicole 1

I am a huge fan of Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series (which is YA). I haven’t read her Weather Warden (adult) series mostly because I have to be very judicious of my reading time since the TBR shelf is burgeoning at the seams.  So, when given the chance to read Working Stiff, the […]
