Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine Ash and Quill Author: Rachel Caine Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Rachel Caine has done it again!  Ash and Quill is another outstanding novel in The Great Library series.  Gikany and Una found themselves lost in the world and utterly gripped by the cliffhanger ending.  We eagerly await the next installment. This story immediately begins where our heroes were last left.  Betrayed by Jess’s father, the band of library rebels are in the hands of the Burners in Philadelphia – the heart of a Burner stronghold under siege by the Library’s forces.  Despite the hopelessness of their situation, they never give up.  It is...

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price Grave Ransom Author: Kalayna Price Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Fans of the Alex Craft series rejoice – this book was definitely worth the wait!  Gikany and Una enjoyed this fifth novel in the adventures of grave witch, Alex Craft.  Grave Ransom was an intriguing and gripping urban fantasy detective drama. We need to preface this review by stating that since it has been some time from the last book, Gikany reread the previous novels before jumping into this latest release.  Una being Una, jumped right in.  It took Una a bit of time to acclimate to the mythology and where we were with...

Review: Moonbreaker by Simon R. Green

Review: Moonbreaker by Simon R. Green Moonbreaker Author: Simon R. Green Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: After the last novel, Dr. DOA, we were concerned on where Moonbreaker would go.  Left with an unusual cliffhanger (for this series), Gikany and Una were nervous about what Eddie and Molly would face.  Never fear fans of the Secret Histories series, Mr. Green delivers a gripping, hilarious and fascinating action/adventure as we have not only come to expect, but love. ***Please note that the standard disclaimer for a long running series applies.  There was a huge cliffhanger in the previous book.  There will be spoilers for it here not to mention spoilers for...

Review: Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler

Review: Wolf Hunt by Paige Tyler Wolf Hunt Author: Paige Tyler Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una really enjoy this series.  It’s a fascinating, engaging, and fun series.  How can it not be fun?  It mixes werewolves, SWAT, and romance together.  Ms. Tyler delivers yet another satisfying SWAT novel in Wolf Hunt. Although the series is best read from the beginning, Wolf Hunt would be a reasonable start for the series. The best part of Remy and Triana’s romance is that it is a second chance at love.  Remy and Triana were unrequited high school sweethearts.  Friends for most of their childhood, they never took that next step...

Review: Undiscovered by Sara Humphreys

Review: Undiscovered by Sara Humphreys Undiscovered Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: All in all, Undiscovered is a good start to a new story arc in the Amoveo series.  Gikany and Una found the mythology of the dragons interesting and Zander and Rena’s romance satisfying although there were a couple of rough elements. In the Amoveo series, dragon shifters were believed to be extinct.  However, they are not.  Zander and his identical twin brother Zed are the only dragon shifters left.  A curse has left Zander stuck in his human form and Zed in hibernation in dragon form for the last 500 years.  What little we learn...

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs Silence Fallen Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: As complete and utter Mercy Thompson fans, suffice to say we loved Silence Fallen.  However, it was a bit different, not only where the story goes, but in the telling. Adam and Mercy have come a long, long way.  They are an awesome team.  But a lot of time has passed since Mercy has had to truly face trouble on her own.  In Silence Fallen, Mercy does just that.  She is abducted and held against her will in another country.  As she strives to escape, Mercy finds herself from one hot pan into another. ...

Review: The Forests of Dru by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Forests of Dru by Jeffe Kennedy The Forests of Dru Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Forests of Dru continues the story of Oria and Lonen, who are now finally in Dru and facing new issues.  Overall Gikany and Una liked the story, although it is starting to have a serial short story feeling. Unlike the first book, which seemed like a complete novel, the subsequent books have felt more like novellas.  We could liken the format to a television series: the first episode is longer to set up the series and then the following episodes are shorter.  Each book ends in a cliffhanger. Although this series...

Review: Bait N’ Witch by Abigail Owen

Review: Bait N’ Witch by Abigail Owen Bait N’ Witch Author: Abigail Owen Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una enjoyed the latest story in the Legendary Consultants series.  Greyson and Rowan’s story was compelling and filled with humor and passion.  Although the novel has a lighthearted feel, neither the passion between Greyson and Rowan, nor the anxiety of the plot as Rowan tries to hide her identity while also trying to protect Greyson’s triplet daughters, is diminished. We were introduced to Rowan in the previous novel.  She was the unfortunate witch forced to do the bidding of Kaios.  Now the Mage High Council has their top enforcer, Greyson, hunting...

Review: Two Stories from the Legendary Consultants series by Abigail Owen

Review: Two Stories from the Legendary Consultants series by Abigail Owen A Ghost of a Chance (Moon, Mist & Magic Anthology) Legendary Consultants #2.1 This is a short and sweet story about Josey and Brice and what is really a second-chance at romance.  We haven’t met these characters before in the series, but their story is a quick and fun read. Gikany and Una liked that Josey and Brice had a history.  It made their connection and journey that much more believable.  The fact that Josey tries to hide her abilities (because who would believe she sees ghosts) makes sense, especially considering how sensitive she is.  Though it was short, we did enjoy the chemistry and romantic romp between them. ...

Review: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy The Edge of the Blade Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Since meeting Jepp in The Twelve Kingdoms series, Gikany and Una have been eager to experience her happily ever after.  After The Pages of the Mind, we were intrigued to see how Jepp would handle going from bodyguard and warrior, to spy and diplomat.  Overall we liked her story even though it was more of a cerebral than an emotional journey. Gikany and Una love this world, especially as the series has expanded to include other kingdoms and cultures.  Although we were given a glimpse of the Dasanarian culture in previous...
