Review: Gunpowder Alchemy by Jeannie Lin

Review: Gunpowder Alchemy by Jeannie Lin Gunpowder Alchemy Author: Jeannie Lin Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: This is a new series by Jeannie Lin.

The contrast between the grime of the technology and the...

Sometimes she let him see the part of her she kept hidden from the world but he was...

Schynder Publisher:   Carina Press Released:  January 13, 2014 REVIEW HERE Snippet “It’s here.”  Yay.  Bounce, bounce. “Yay!” Skuld clapped her hands together and, yup, bounced. Amazing how she managed to poing in magnetized ship boots. Kaitlyn had to climb one of the larger shelving racks and peer behind a large storage crate to find Chester’s hidey spot.  His cache was a pile of small treasures.  Heck, Skuld’s missing sex toy was a tiny, hide it in your palm plaything.  Otherwise, the ferret wouldn’t have been able to lift it and scamper off with it.  Chester sniffed her hand and gave her his sad...

Review: A Virtuous Death by Christine Trent

Review: A Virtuous Death by Christine Trent A Virtuous Death Author: Christine Trent Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: A Virtuous Death is the third novel in the enchanting Lady of Ashes Mysteries.  Although this novel had a slightly different feel from the previous ones, I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery and the continuing insights into Violet.
