Magic Burns by I. Andrews

31 March 2008 Jackie 4

I am definitely falling in love with the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews. In the second installment, Magic Burns, Atlanta is going through the beginnings of a magic flare. During this time, it is easier for the gods to cross over and do whatever their will is. This time […]

Betsy Goes Teenage

30 March 2008 Jackie 0

So the cover for the new Betsy novel, Undead and Unworthy, by MaryJanice Davidson is out. I personally don’t like it. I adore the previous covers and the UK version. The UK version is more in tune with what the books have previous looked liked, but the the US publishers […]

Rogue is now on sale, go get it if you haven’t read it yet. Need more convincing to get it? Read below for my review… One thing I like about series is the ability to read them out of order. You can do this with most series that doesn’t involve […]

Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by M. Acosta

25 March 2008 Jackie 2

I’m not really sure what I think about Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta. The premise behind the novel involves our heroine getting infected by the “vampire” Oswald and the subsequent transition. When we’re introduced to the vampires, we’re actually told that they are not vampires, but are […]

In anticipation for Fearless Fourteen, which is being released in June, and for my numbers challenge, I re-read Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich. I have already written up a review on this novel, so I’m not going to do another one. However, I will say that this series never […]

The Romance Genre & Serious Issues

25 March 2008 Jackie 1

I was reading the Dear Author site and one of the Janes posted an editorial on how the romance genre trivializes certain serious issues. What does everyone think about this? I personally like the idea that romances don’t tackle the hard questions. I like being able to escape into a […]

Jeaniene Frost has set up a couple of new fan sites. The first one is a discussion forum where people can talk about her books, events, and anything else that comes to mind. The second site is a fan site that is still under construction. I’m sure there will be […]

The Dark One by R. Thompson

24 March 2008 Jackie 1

As part of the numbers challenge, I decided to try Ronda Thompson’s The Dark One. I had never heard of her before, but when it was announced she had died of pancreatic cancer, people started talking about her books. From what everyone was saying, I became intrigued. The Dark One […]
