Review: The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy The Shift of the Tide Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una were anxiously awaiting Zynda’s story.  The Shift of the Tide is utterly compelling and may have replaced Andi’s (The Mark of the Tala) as our favorite book in this series. Zynda has always been a bit of an enigma character.  She is beautifully mysterious and you just know there is much more going on in her head than she lets on.  Zynda is an amazing shapeshifter — the pride of her people, and she is a relative to the previous Tala Queen, Salena. Regardless, Zynda has a secret...

Jen’s Summer Reading Wrap-Up

Jen’s Summer Reading Wrap-Up Now that Labor Day has come and passed, summer vacation has ended. While we may still get a nice day here and there, the nights are getting cooler and days are getting shorter. Soon the New England Autumn will be in full swing. So I thought I’d take a few moments to share my favorite reads from Summer 2017. I read and/or listened to 24 books: 16 books and 8 audiobooks, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. My reading slowed down considerably over the summer. There was more time hanging out with the family and staying up late with the kids. But also, my audiobook listening time was cut...

Review: Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey

Review: Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey Disorderly Conduct Author: Tessa Bailey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: I love reading book series. It’s honestly one of my favorite things. I get to meet some characters, get to know them, have some sh*t happen, and then it gets fixed (or the author is mean and leaves us hanging…) and they live happily for now. Until the next book in the series comes out and there’s another crisis. OR…we meet ‘supporting cast’ members in the first title who become the leads in a subsequent book. The Academy series by Tessa Bailey is the latter. Slated for three titles, the first two titles are about police...

Strong and intense, her essence called to him on an elemental level. “Nadia.” His voice gruff, he said her name on a mere growl around long fangs that pricked his lower lip. Surprise lined her forehead, her eyes narrowed, and breath wrenched from her chest. She stood from her chair...

Review: Three Player Game by Jaime Samms

Review: Three Player Game by Jaime Samms Three Player Game Author: Jaime Samms Reviewer: B. Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: While I generally like the Bluewater Bay series, and even though I found the previous story that revolved around these characters (How the Cookie Crumbles, Bluewater Bay #12) to be sweet as well as charming, I was considerably more conflicted about Three Player Game. As intricately tied to its predecessor as it was, I ended up stopping to do a thorough reread—which I actually enjoyed very much—in order to fill in some blanks that came up early in this story. Despite that necessity, however, this resulted in a more severe comparison between the two, which might...

Review: Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis

Review: Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis Snowspelled Author: Stephanie Burgis Reviewer: Una Rating: A  What I’m Talking About: Snowspelled is a delightful and intriguing short introduction to a fascinating world.  The Harwood Spellbook series has hooked me, and I eagerly await the next story. Though only a novella, I was thoroughly captivated by Cassandra and the world she lives in.  Angland is an interesting twist on a historical England.  The rigid roles of men and women – the social rules – all beautifully contrasted with a stubborn and oddly magical woman, Cassandra.  In this world, men have and wield the magic while women are the political juggernauts.  However, it’s not only the politics of people...

Are you okay? Pull over,” Leona said as she reached for the steering wheel. “No, I’m okay. I just realized that there’s a spirit in the dive shop. She keeps f*cking with me when I’m asleep. I’ve had scratches after some dreams,” Alphie admitted. “I saw her arm earlier—when that bottle of water was supposedly a bad throw? Not the case. She knocked it to the floor.” A...
