Review: Gilded Lily by Delphine Dryden

Review: Gilded Lily by Delphine Dryden Gilded Lily Author: Delphine Dryden Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Gilded Lily is the third offering in the Steam and Seduction series.  In this adventure we follow Frederique “Freddie” Murcheson and Barnabas Smith-Grenville, two opposites who do attract.  Although this novel feels a bit transitional, setting up new plots while circling back to finish up some elements introduced in the previous two novels, I liked it. For me, the Steam and Seduction series is steampunk that is more romance than science, but it’s still fascinating.  What hooked me are the characters.  I enjoy the independent and empowered heroines who seem to characterize this series.  Freddie is...

Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Review: City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare City of Heavenly Fire Author: Cassandra Clare Reviewer: Una Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It seems lately I have been reviewing the end-of-a-series books.  So far, they have all been well done.  City of Heavenly Fire is no exception and in fact is amazing!  It is beautifully crafted, brimming with pathos, and completely tensioned filled; I was mesmerized, overwhelmed, and ensnared.  The course of the last five books reached an unexpected and almost hopelessly impossible pinnacle, and I find myself left with a beautiful sense of peace and a core of hope.  City of Heavenly Fire is by far my favorite book of the series! Ms. Clare certainly...

Sunday Snippet: The Magic Between Us by Tammy Falkner

Sunday Snippet: The Magic Between Us by Tammy Falkner  About the Book The Magic Between Us Author:  Tammy Falkner Publisher:   Sourcebooks Released:  January 7, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet Marcus still stood with his arms outstretched.  If he wasn’t mistaken, Lucius smelled worse now than he had when they’d arrived.  “Someone take this,” he said.  But no one came forward. He looked over at Cecelia, who’d taken Cindy and sat down on the settee with the baby burrowed tightly in the crook of her arm.  He sat down beside her and tried to balance Lucius on his knee.  But the little guy was not happy.  Not at all. “He doesn’t like me,” Marcus complained. “If you hold everyone at arm’s...

You think I don’t know what my own fiancé looks like?” The thought of her fiancé and sister’s naked bodies intertwined was seared on Lily’s mind.

His black hair spilled loose over his shoulders, his midnight gaze on me, his face grave. “Beautiful Andromeda—don’t be afraid. I’m here.” He sat beside me and stroked a finger down my cheek. It felt real and warm and I wanted to lean my cheek into his palm, for comfort. “You’re not real,” I whispered, willing myself to wake up. “I am real. The other things are not. They’re just…fragments tossed up...

Review: Warrior’s Curse by Alexa Egan

Review: Warrior’s Curse by Alexa Egan Warrior’s Curse Author: Alexa Egan Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Warrior’s Curse is the third book in the Imnada Brotherhood series.  It is a rich paranormal story set within a historical novel.  I jumped into this book without reading the previous two titles, and it did affect my enjoyment.  Although I found myself liking the story of Gray and Meeryn, I do wish I had read the previous titles. It is always best to start a series from the beginning however, when I signed up for this one, I somehow missed that it was the third in a series.  I have found that jumping in on...
