Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden The Bear and the Nightingale Author: Katherine Arden Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: The Brothers Grimm appropriated many of their classic fairytales from tales handed down all over the world.  Stories told to entertain, scare children into good behavior, and make us believe in magic.  Just maybe, with a little help from our fairy godmother, things might turn out alright. My favorite Russian fairytale growing up was the Twelve Dancing Princesses.  (It’s deceptive and a little morbid in retrospect, but there’s no accounting for logic or taste in a seven year old who wanted to stay up all night and dance.)  Maybe it was the extremely...

Review: Distilled by Deelylah Mullin

Review: Distilled by Deelylah Mullin Distilled (A Love Brothers Anthology) Author: Deelylah Mullin Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Some of you know that I’m not a huge contemporary romance reader.  However, I found something new that I really enjoyed by fellow TWITA reviewer, Vampbard.  Her novella, Distilled, was something different, and I really enjoyed it. What I loved about this novella is that our main characters are survivors.  They both have suffered different traumatic issues and are on a forever road of recovery.  I liked how these scars were integral parts of them.  These imperfect characters found a perfect fit with each other.  The grittiness of these elements weighted the realism...

Review: Legacy of Lies by Jillian David

Review: Legacy of Lies by Jillian David Legacy of Lies Author: Jillian David Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I have found something new!  When I picked up Legacy of Lies it was with the understanding that it was going to be something different.  A paranormal western – that’s right, never thought to put those two words together.  However, Ms. David makes them fit and I enjoyed it! Legacy of Lies is the first book in the Hell’s Valley series.  From my research to put this review together, it seems it is spin-off from another series that I’m completely unfamiliar with.  That being said, I do not feel I missed out on anything.  The...

Review: Afraid to Fly by L.A. Witt

Review: Afraid to Fly by L.A. Witt Afraid To Fly Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: I’ve read quite a few titles by this author, many created under various pen names, and have always enjoyed her writing very much. The first story in the Anchor Point series, Just Drive, also received a lot of good reviews, even though I missed it when it was released. So, I was a little disappointed when Afraid to Fly gave me a fair bit of difficulty. One particularly significant stumbling block for me came from the use of dueling first person POVs throughout the narrative. Although each chapter is titled to reflect whose perspective is...

Sunday Snippet: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy

Sunday Snippet: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy  About the Book The Edge of the Blade    Author:  Jeffe Kennedy Publisher:   Kensington Publishing Company Released:  December 27, 2016 Series:   The Uncharted Realms #2 Genre:  Fantasy Romance Author contact links:   Facebook, Goodreads, Twitter, Website Purchase links:  Amazon, Book Depository,  iTunes, Kobo REVIEW Snippet: A strange sound cut across the ubiquitous creaking and snapping of a ship in full sail running before the wind. Something… animal? Zynda heard it, too, lifting her head in a way that reminded me of a predator pricking its ears into a downward wind. Or prey. I drew my blades, muscles singing from exhausted to hyperalert. “What is it?” “I don’t know. It sounded like...

Review: The Protector by Donna Grant

Review: The Protector by Donna Grant The Protector Author: Donna Grant Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The saga to find Orrin (Cullen’s dad) continues in this fast-paced continuation of the Sons of Texas series. Seriously. Find. Him! I want Orrin to get a HEA, too!!! Could it be the mousy doctor??? Enough with projecting my own needs as a reader. I think I liked The Protector better than the first book in the series, The Hero. I liked Cullen and Mia better as a couple because they felt more balanced—they could both take care of themselves. Both Cullen and Mia have demons. What really pushed me forward when reading was the next...
