Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

21 September 2015 Sarah 0

A dark and twisty story that encapsulates the best that urban fantasy has to offer, Menagerie by Rachel Vincent is supremely satisfying.  In the back of my mind, I heard dark, discordant calliope music while reading (creepy and foreboding).  A crazy alternate reality of paranoid humans seeking to cage the monsters […]

Cursed Moon by Jaye Wells

I’m in a sort-of reading funk. Likely due to the fact that so far, 2015 has been the year of cursed technology. First the new laptop (only 2 months old) decided to die (it’s a motherboard or hard drive issue…thank the tech gods for warranties!), my old laptop needs a […]

Liesmith by Alis Franklin

29 October 2014 Sarah 0

A fascinatingly complex world of gods, monsters, and an IT department (which, arguably, could fit into either category depending on the situation), Liesmith by Alis Franklin captivated my attention and didn’t let go. The unique, albeit somewhat familiar, landscape provided a lovely backdrop for a story of Norse gods come to […]

The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig

16 October 2013 Natassia 0

An edgy thrilling ride, the intro to the Mookie Pearl series is as  enticing as the name The Blue Blazes implies. Page after page, I was reminded why Wendig is a writer’s writer through his gritty storytelling. With a cast which is perfectly raw, Wendig unabashedly spins a tale that […]

Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

19 December 2012 Natassia 0

Jay Kristoff brings steampunk to feudal Japan in a way that is truly groundbreaking with Stormdancer. Even though the story’s locale is different, it’s not Victorian London or Civil War era US, it is Kristoff’s understanding of steampunk that takes this book from an interesting read to a stellar gamechanger. […]

Ever have a book (or series) that has all the components that you love but you just can’t get into it?  That’s the case with Darkness Everlasting in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity series.  In particular, Darcy is being hunted by were-society and the head of the vampires, Styx, must find […]

Embrace the Darkness by Alexandra Ivy

Here we are with book number two in Alexandra Ivy’s Guardian of the Eternity series, Embrace the Darkness.  I did enjoy this book more than When Darkness Comes (here’s my review).  This go round its hunky vampire Viper and the last known, although half blood, Shalott, Shay.  An enemy and a […]

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 […]

Darkness Unleashed by A. Ivy

I cannot believe I haven’t posted a review for Darkness Unleashed by Alexandra Ivy. For being the fifth novel in a series, and not having a chance to read the rest of the series, I have to say I never felt like I was missing anything. It was great! A […]

Death’s Daughter by A. Benson

12 July 2009 Jackie 5

I’ll be honest, I totally wanted to pick up Death’s Daughter because of who it was written by – Amber Benson.  I’m a huge Buffy fan, so it was kind of cool to see something written by one of the cast members. Calliope Reaper-Jones so just wanted a normal life: […]
