Maplecroft by Cherie Priest

20 October 2014 Natassia 0

The thrill and intrigue of Lovecraftian mythos is beautifully used in Cherie Priest’s Maplecroft. The debut novel of Priest’s new Borden Dispatches series is a departure from the post apocalyptic steampunk realm we have come to know her for. Taking off with the infamous Lizzie Borden, Priest creates an amazingly […]

Growing up in Florida, hurricanes were just a part of life for me. They weren’t scary, just something we prepared for. Yet, after reading Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson, I’ve realized that my entire life has been a lie. I should be terrified of hurricanes. Because according […]

Lovecraft’s Monsters edited by Ellen Datlow

2 April 2014 Natassia 0

H.P Lovecraft’s epic monsters come to new life in the anthology Lovecraft’s Monsters. With a wide range of popular and fairly unknown authors, the fare ranges from entertaining to downright boring. Even taking Lovecraft’s great talent out of the equation, many stories simply under-utilize the great beasts which should be […]

Snowblind by Christopher Golden

17 February 2014 Natassia 0

Christopher Golden brings us a horror book, which makes a chilly draft ominous in Snowblind. It has been a long time since I read a book which was as gripping and realistic as this. Golden entwines everyday caution with a sinister enemy which plays at everyone’s inner securities. The entire […]

Poe by J. Lincoln Fenn

2 January 2014 Natassia 0

J. Lincoln Fenn’s Poe is a shining display of humorous morbid entertainment. With a thrilling mystery, Fenn takes dark themes and gives us a witty novel with ties to history and magic. Suspense and intrigue are the name of the game and Fenn mixes this nicely with her light writing […]

Shakespeare v Lovecraft by D.R O’Brien

17 June 2013 Natassia 0

The hilarious mash up in Shakespeare v Lovecraft is one for the books. In a charming novella, D.R O’Brien brings together two of my favorite topics and melds them in a classic romp. Whether you’re a fan of Shakespeare, Lovecraft, or even just looking for something new, cast your gaze […]

Here we go again, a novella in James R. Tuck’s Deacon Chalk, Occult Bounty Hunter series that has done nothing but amp me up for his next novel that is not coming out soon enough, if you ask me. Sigh. But, if you like a good tease, then by all […]

I want you to close your eyes, and imagine for a minute with me. Think of every scary bump in the night beast you can imagine, don’t be shy, go on, imagine it.  Now I want you to picture a big, tattoo covered, bad-ass bounty hunter with weapons in every […]

James R. Tuck has a new Deacon Chalk novella, Spider’s Lullaby, coming out in two weeks and I finally got to read it. Now normally, I’m not a big fan of novellas and pass them by.  But we’re talking Deacon Chalk. Monsters. Kickass fighting…considering I loved Blood and Bullets and That Thing at […]

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 […]

Blood and Bullets by James R. Tuck

17 February 2012 Nikki R 5

I’m starting this review before I’ve finished Blood and Bullets, because I am enjoying it THAT much.  To say you won’t be disappointed if you pick up this book is an understatement. He lives to kill monsters. He keeps his city safe. And his silver hollow-points and back-from-the-dead abilities help […]

That Thing at the Zoo by James R. Tuck

27 December 2011 Nikki R 5

After the string of not so great books I’ve had, I was afraid That Thing at the Zoo by James Tuck would be another to add to my give away pile.  I’m happy to announce, I was wrong about the book and it will be joining my expanding library. Right […]

Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward

18 August 2011 Nikki R 2

‘The king must die’ is the first sentence in Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward.  I have to say that when I read that sentence I said ‘oh hell no’ out loud to no one.  That sentence alone, told me this book was going to be major….and I wasn’t wrong. Caldwell, […]
