We’re in S*** City, that’s what,” I said.  “Where are the others?  Where’s Tnota?” “Got separated,” Nenn said.  She was breathing hard, face red with exertion and slick with sweat.  “I ran up the stairs.  think they fell back into a pantry.” “You get a count of them?” “Could be a thousand out there for all I saw.” I wiped drudge blood from my hands, ran my tongue over my teeth.  Shook...

Review: Third Rail by Santino Hassell

Review: Third Rail by Santino Hassell Third Rail Author: Santino Hassell Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Beginning just after Interborough, and supplementing the numerous hints scattered throughout Concourse, this quick, sexy collection of shorts is the perfect precursor to the sixth book in the Five Boroughs series, Citywide. Having been charmed by Chris way back in Sunset Park, and left scrambling for whatever details I could glean about both Aiden and Jace after being officially introduced to them in First and First, I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to experience this part of their journey through Third Rail. These three have always been favorites of mine, and I couldn’t have been happier...

Review: Scavenger Girl–Season of Atchem by Jennifer Arntson

Review: Scavenger Girl–Season of Atchem by Jennifer Arntson Scavenger Girl-Season of Atchem Author: Jennifer Arntson Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Scavenger Girl is the first book in the new young adult series by the same name.  It’s told from the perspective of Una, a seventeen year old girl and member of the lowest caste in a leveled socio-economic system.  This dystopian novel is set on a planet with three moons that with their movements create five distinct seasons: Atchem, Talium, Hytalia, Toridia, and Zoetica.  The seasons correspond to the five books intended for the series. The single perspective creates a very intimate feeling with the narration.  The pace isn’t slow so much as it...

They bayed triumphantly.  Or two of them did. The third was—different. It was still a giant black dog with unnatural red eyes, but compared to the others it was…fluffier. The three of them closed on us. Morgan clutched at me and the blade at her wrist flashed into being again, this time longer and heavier, with a serrated edge. Beads of sweat popped...

Review + Blog Tour: Kill Game by Cordelia Kingsbridge

Review + Blog Tour: Kill Game by Cordelia Kingsbridge Kill Game Author: Cordelia Kingsbridge Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Given that I had mixed reactions to the only other title I’ve read by this author, I was eager to give this new series a try—and I’m extremely glad that I did. From its quick-witted characters to a villain that I found myself sympathizing with on occasion to a plot that kept me guessing the entire time, Kill Game had everything I adore in a good suspense story. Although I did develop a particular fondness for Dominic, I liked both he and Levi a great deal. This isn’t the first time I’ve read a story involving...
