Review: Shadowed Blade by JC Daniels

Review: Shadowed Blade by JC Daniels Shadowed Blade Author: JC Daniels Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Note: This review contains spoilers from the previous book. Shadowed Blade continues a couple of story arcs from earlier titles in the series, and therefore should not be read as a standalone. Opening shortly after the jaw-dropping conclusion of Edged Blade, we find Kit working for President of the United States: a man whom we discovered is a Non-Human (NH). The book moves quickly, as Kit and Justin search for NHs on behalf of President Whitmore and get caught up in some seriously perilous situations. Having absolutely loved the first three books in the Colbana...

Review: The Demonists by Thomas E. Sniegoski

Review: The Demonists by Thomas E. Sniegoski The Demonists Author: Thomas E. Sniegoski Reviewer: Una Rating: A-/B+ What I’m Talking About: I was intrigued by the premise of The Demonists and picked up this new-to-me author.  The writing and crafting of the overall story and world was mesmerizing, I easily fell into this world of ghosts and demons.  However, there are a few elements that were a bit much for me in this very dark fantasy world. First, I really did like the world Mr. Sniegoski created: the paranormal experts going on a routine haunt call only to have it go horribly, horribly wrong.  I will warn you there is violence, but thankfully it is not gratuitous.  That being...

Review: Into the Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Into the Darkness by Katie Reus Into the Darkness Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A-/B+ What I’m Talking About: In Into the Darkness, author Katie Reus tackles two love stories and wraps up some loose ends, giving the book an end-of-series feel (although based on the epilogue, it’s not). The story opens from POV of Rhea, warrior wolf with Finn’s pack. She’s being pursued by Conall, the powerful alpha of a pack-friendly dragon clan. The pack is preparing for the wedding of friends Bo and Nyx (romance featured in book 4), bringing Conall and his family to town; however, it looks as if a deadly part of Rhea’s past has resurfaced to create...
