Review: A Mate for Christmas by Katie Reus

Review: A Mate for Christmas by Katie Reus A Mate for Christmas Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B  What We’re Talking About: Mate for Christmas is simply a beautifully wrapped gift from Ms. Reus to the readers and fans of her Moon Shifter series. Through this novella she wraps up the series (for now) and allows us to say goodbye. Through the story of Noel and Nathan, we are able to check in with the previous couples from the series as well as showing us the happily-ever-afters for a few other couples.  Although Noel and Nathan’s story was short, it was sweet and emotionally satisfying.  We enjoyed Nathan’s patient nature as Noel learns to...

Review: Pocket Full of Tinder by Jill Archer

Review: Pocket Full of Tinder by Jill Archer Pocket Full of Tinder Author: Jill Archer Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have eagerly awaited the fourth installment in the Noon Onyx series.  Although we were thrilled to be back in this unique and fascinating world, the novel had a few odd notes that culminated in an astonishing cliffhanger. The Noon Onyx world is so unique.  In the years after the demons won Armageddon, angels and demons have blended with what is left of humanity.  It is an intricate and fascinating world.  The premise with Noon and her Nightshade being oddities in what is already a strange world to the reader...

Review: Dark Protector by Katie Reus

Review: Dark Protector by Katie Reus Dark Protector Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: After seeing the connection between Aldric and Natalia in the previous novel, Hunter Reborn, Gikany and Una eagerly anticipated seeing their courtship and conclusion.  Overall we liked this last full novel in the Moon Shifter series. We have to admit, Aldric is a stubborn, overbearing Alpha male.  He stupidly walked away from Natalia, breaking her heart.  However, he redeems himself by: 1) knowing he was an idiot for walking away, 2) apologizing for being said idiot, and 3) working to prove through his actions not only his remorse at hurting Natalia, but winning her...

Review: Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler

Review: Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler Wolf Unleashed Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una really enjoyed this latest installment in the SWAT series.  Wolf Unleashed was a well-rounded, suspenseful, and passionately sweet story. Alex and Lacey’s story sticks out as the best so far in the series.  We really enjoyed their ordinary meeting.  So far, most couples in this series have meet under nefarious conditions.  Lacey is a vet and who Alex just happened to meet when he took the SWAT pet in for his check-up.  This sweet romance was different from the previous pairings, and we enjoyed the normalcy of it.  Alex and Lacey’s...

Review: The Burning Isle by Will Panzo

Review: The Burning Isle by Will Panzo The Burning Isle Author: Will Panzo Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una were fascinated by this debut novel.  The Burning Isle is a compelling mixture of dark fantasy, adventure, mystery, and suspense.  We were mesmerized by this richly complex novel. Unfortunately there is not much we can say about this intriguing puzzle of a novel.  It is a well-woven mystery of who Cassius is, what his mission is, and why he is so dedicated to it.  Gikany and Una discussed the rich nuances of the story, but sharing that discussion could possibly spoil the plot line.  The novel is a slowly unweaving...

Review: The Tides of Bára by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Tides of Bára by Jeffe Kennedy The Tides of Bára Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: This is going to be a pretty vague review as The Tides of Bara is in essence a transitional novel.  It follows Oria and Lonen as they flee Bara and attempt to reach the Destrye.  Although if felt like nothing really happened, Gikany and Una liked it. When we say that very little happened, we mean that none of the overarching plot lines are resolved.  There is a touch of action, quite of a bit travel, and a steamy interaction, but really, Oria and Lonen travel from Bara to Dru. What does...

Review + Blog Tour: Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson

Review + Blog Tour: Of Flame and Light by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Light Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been anticipating this novel since we met Taran in the first Weird Girls novel, A Curse Awakened. We loved this mouthy, confident woman. We found it fascinating to see the world of the Wird sisters through Taran’s eyes. Taran’s persona is just a façade. Taran’s history (which we hope to learn more about in future books) has taught her to show a tough-as-nails façade to hide her brittle self-esteem. She is terrified of being in love. This fact is illustrated through her frustrating relationship with Gem. One would...

Review: Seneca’s Faith by Abigail Owen

Review: Seneca’s Faith by Abigail Owen Seneca’s Faith Author: Abigail Owen Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Seneca’s Faith is the fourth novel in the Shadowcat Nation series.  This interesting take on shifters seemingly comes to a close with this book.  Although there may be more books to come in the series, Gikany and Una liked the conclusion we found with Seneca and Gage’s journey. Seneca has appeared in previous books in the Shadowcat Nation series, but we didn’t learn much about her.  As the novel begins, we find out there is much more to Seneca than anyone knew.  Since the evil Rick Delaney is her father, Seneca has been forced...

Q&A + Review: The Bloodsworn by Erin Lindsey

Q&A + Review: The Bloodsworn by Erin Lindsey The Bloodsworn Author: Erin Lindsey Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A-  What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have waited somewhat impatiently for the final book in this Bloodbound trilogy.  We were not disappointed.  The Bloodsworn is our favorite book of the series. What makes this series so captivating is the characters.  All three main characters (Alix, Liam, and Erik) developed over the course of the three novels.  Gikany and Una enjoyed discussing the changes that Alix, Liam and Erik each underwent as the series progressed.  We watched them grow in both confidence and decisiveness.  The heartache they felt after making tough choices grounded the novel.  Not only do...

Review: Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black

Review: Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black Ninth City Burning Author: J. Patrick Black Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: C  What We’re Talking About: Ninth City Burning is the debut novel of J. Patrick Black.  This science fiction story was fascinating and easily visualized, if only Gikany and Una enjoyed reading it. Truly, we loved the overall premise – a science fiction story about a post-apocalyptic Earth battling back an alien species in order to avoid extinction.  The discovery of a new resource, Thelemity which most of us would describe as magic, is critical in the battle between these two factions.  It is utterly engrossing.  The novel begins with the assumption that we are winning, when...
