Revenant by Larissa Ione

9 July 2015 Nicole 0

No no no NO…I’m in denial. This CANNOT be the end of the Demonica series. *pouts*. This is one of my fave PNR series, as is the spin-off, Lords of Deliverance, and you bet I took my time savoring Revenant by Larissa Ione. HELL HATH NO FURY . . . For five […]

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay

23 March 2015 Sarah 4

Every once in a while, I like to set aside my super spicy reads for something of the young adult variety. The description of Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay intrigued me, to say the least. Young adult, fantasy, heroine in disguise (as her own brother), and a reluctant hero combined with […]

Of Bone and Thunder by Chris Evans

18 March 2015 Natassia 0

The fantastical battlefield comes to life in Of Bone and Thunder. Chris Evans brings to life a world where injustice and dragons are spoken of in the same sentence. Mix fantasy with a realistically miserable landscape and it reads like a W.E.B Griffin novel. Of Bone and Thunder is the […]

Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder (Soulfinder #1)

6 March 2015 Sarah 0

I was embarrassingly excited when I learned that Yelena and Valek would back in Maria V. Snyder’s Shadow Study! These stories are some of my favorites and I couldn’t wait to read about what happens next with these two. The former poison-taster/now Soulfinder, Yelena, and the (arguably) best assassin in the […]

Player’s Handbook (Dungeons & Dragons) [5th Edition]

6 February 2015 Jesse 0

At this point there are probably hundreds of reviews of the 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook. Since every OSR zealot and grognard has already posted their thoughts on their blogs, it’s doubtful I could say anything unique.  My goal isn’t to provide yet another boring review; my goal is […]

Warrior’s Woman by Johanna Lindsey

3 February 2015 Nikki R 0

Back in my early bookworm days, I was OBSESSED with romance. It was literally all I read for years and years. Then someone handed me my first science fiction novel and introduced me to a new ‘world’. Ok so it’s not exactly SCIFI, but it was my first taste of […]

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas 

26 November 2014 Sarah 0

An amalgamation of some of my favorite young adult fantasy stories infused with fresh perspective, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas captivated me from start to finish. Full of intrigue and deception, the story never lagged. Fast-paced action complemented a strong, determined heroine (I’m a sucker for a story about a […]

Shadow Spell by Nora Roberts

3 October 2014 Courtney 0

I am a great fan of Nora Roberts, and some of her books can be a miss for me, but I’m very happy to report that Shadow Spell was a hit! I had already fallen in love with the characters thanks to Dark Witch(the first of the Cousin’s O’Dwyer series) but Shadow Spell helped […]

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin (Part two)

30 September 2014 Nikki R 0

Can I start by saying that it took me almost two months to finish Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin? I was reading every day but you wouldn’t know it! Why it took me this long has nothing to do with it being a boring or terrible novel. Oh […]
