The Turning & Possesion by J. Armintrout

29 June 2007 Jackie 0

I came across a new author the other day and I’m not entirely sure what I think of her books yet. Jennifer Armintrout has a series called Blood Ties. The first book in the series is called the Turning and it introduces us to the main character – Dr. Carrie […]

Storm Front by J. Butcher

27 June 2007 Jackie 0

Earlier this year, the Sci-Fi channel ran a new show called The Dresden Files. It was one of those mid season original series that only had about a dozen episodes, but Jesse & I were both impressed and I know I can’t wait for it to come back next season. […]

Lean Mean Thirteen by J. Evanovich

26 June 2007 Jackie 1

Lean Mean Thirteen is the latest adventure for Stephanie Plum. This time the adventure involves her ex-husband Dickie Orr and about 40 million dollars. As usual, Stephanie just happens to get involved in the case when Ranger asks her for a small favor. When I first found these books, I […]

the Harlequin by LK Hamilton

25 June 2007 Jackie 0

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 by MJ Davidson

21 June 2007 Jackie 0

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 […]

Jacob by J. Frank

19 June 2007 Jackie 0

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.

Gideon by J. Frank

11 June 2007 Jackie 0

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.

For a Few Demons More by K. Harrison

6 June 2007 Jackie 1

For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison is definitely worth a read. The book picks up about four months after the ending of A Fistful of Charms with a few new werewolf murders. Nobody is convinced that the focus went over the bridge in Michigan and someone has started […]

No Humans Involved by K. Armstrong

4 June 2007 Jackie 2

The seventh novel in Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series – No Humans Involved – is narrated by the necromancer, Jamie Vegas. I really like this series for the fact that Armstrong doesn’t use the same narrator for each of her novels. While the cast of characters remains the same, the plot […]

The Dark-Hunter Series by S. Kenyon

1 June 2007 Jackie 0

I’ve been reading the Dark-Hunter series by Sherrilyn Kenyon and I am almost done with it. The series is actually pretty good and you don’t have to read them in order to know what is going on. Each book can stand on it’s own, however, it includes elements from all […]
