Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

My anticipation for The Trouble with Twelfth Grave was filled with excitement and a twinge of reluctance. I was expecting that once again Charley or Reyes would be holding back a big secret that, if only they had been honest with each other, would not have led to landing in hot water. Phewww, this story was really, really good! Love Charley, she is better than ever! As always, I love […]

Review: Gatekeepers by Sam Ferguson

Gatekeepers is the type of read that when you pick it up you find yourself caught up in the excitement until the end. I love reads that have creatures from other planets or dimensions and this story certainly delivered. Joshua Mills has had a rough go of things lately. After he was acquitted of patricide, had lost his wife and child to divorce, and was finally released from prison, all Joshua […]

Review: The Ninth Circle by C.A. Harland

The Ninth Circle was entertaining, fast paced and I liked the idea of the circles. Basically, think of the circles as levels of supernatural criminal activity. The lower the number the lower the threat. Each division was tasked with a different activity and were overseen by demons. What the characters of this story were unaware of was that there was a puppeteer pulling their strings and they were just the […]

Review: Denai Storm by Tiffany Shand

Denai Storm is the third book of the Excalibar Investigation Series. This story starts out with action and it continues at a fast paced up until the end. I really enjoyed that Cate’s character started out strong. Her husband had been gone too long, where diplomacy  failed Cate was going to fill that gap. I really liked the team of enforcers that Cate has assembled over the previous two books. […]

Review: Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats by Carla Rehse

I adored this book, adored it! Pink Lock Pick and Sequined Witch Hats was a charming read. When I first started reading this story I was not so sure about the main character, Gracie. Her character struck me as a shallow and self-absorbed main character. Now wait before you start rolling any eyes. There is more to this character and that is what made me absolutely love this story. Gracie […]

The Dark Net by Benjamin Percy

The Dark Net is about the “what if’s” regarding the internet. What if the internet could be utilized for truly evil purposes and possession? What if there was a demonic select that had a location on Earth, specifically Portland, that they used for their ritualistic reasons? What if they were tired of the status quo and hatched a plan for worldwide domination? If you ever considered any of those questions, […]

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

This story has it all, epic battles, good versus evil, romance, Chinese mythology, I could keep going on and on! This story was better than I ever expected, I just couldn’t get enough and I hope against hope that it will turn into a series!! Genie Lo is not your average […]

The Moonshadow series is a part of the Elder Races world […]

Mini-Review: One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

What an AMAZING book!! Worth reading, worth reading many, many times. I have enjoyed this series installment the most so far. It was full of action and sci-fi goodness and I loved it. It was so great to have all the characters in this story as well as additional characters that we had heard of before but never met. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Dina’s sister and her niece. Seeing […]

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price with Excerpt

Review: Alex Craft and her partner Rianna run the Tongues for the Dead detective agency and Grave Ransom starts out with Alex taking on the agency’s first missing persons case. Alex and Rianna have a pretty good business going and balance each other out nicely. Rianna is the spell caster and raises shades mostly, while Alex takes on cases that don’t involve using her grave witch, able to see/feel/speak to […]

The event is briefly described with snatches of flashbacks but the whole story was not given. As you read on pieces are given to the overall story that unfurl themselves at the right moment to captivate your imagination. With each piece that is added to the puzzle […]

Cold Reign by Faith Hunter

It was while reading the Soulwood series that I was introduced to world of Jane Yellowrock. I know now that I was obviously living under a boulder! I knew from reading the Soulwood installments that I wanted to know about this world but I had no idea that I was going to be blown away. This story was everything I wanted and more! Cold Reign is the eleventh book in […]

Bound by Benedict Jacka

Wow! I love that the Alex Verus series is always filled with action and dire situations. Bound starts right where the previous book, Burned, left off and I do so enjoy the title that has been chosen for this book. Alex is absolutely bound by circumstances in this book and there is no wiggle room for the choices he must make. Having already lost everything, there is very little that Alex […]

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

To say that I am a fan of the Mercy Thompson series is really an understatement. I have read every book and that actually makes me potentially a great critic. Where other series can start to get stale or predictable this series has remained strong! Silence Fallen steered away from the formula and gave us new features to look forward to in future installments. Fan-tast-ic! Mercy is back and this time […]

Hungry Ghosts by Stephen Blackmoore

I really dug that this book took place in Mexico and that there were many Aztec gods and goddesses that are either a part of the story or referenced. Really fascinating! I am no expert in the Aztec culture or history but I felt that everything was represented in a realistic fashion. Mr. Blackmoore did a wonderful job in researching and it shows in his characters and urban development. I […]
