Review: Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope

Review: Song of Blood & Stone by L. Penelope Song of Blood & Stone Author: L. Penelope Reviewer: Jen Rating: B What I’m Talking About: In the days of old, a Lord and Lady arrived from a distant, dying world. Upon their arrival, they used their Earthsong magic to bring life to the withered land. The Lord and Lady and their nine children lived among the native cave dwellers and eventually, the children mated with the original inhabitants. Their offspring were either Earthsingers, or Silents (those without magic). Many centuries later, the two lands are at constant war, with only a magical wall helping keep the peace.  Jasminda lives in Elsira and is the daughter of an Elsiran...

Review + Blog Tour: Wash Out L.A. Witt Wash Out Author: L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Having lost far too much to his memories and resulting addiction, Logan Carter is finally turning his life around, finding help in the most unlikely of places.

Now, six months sober, he’s getting a fresh start as a civilian contractor at NAS Adams, rebuilding a friendship with his ex, and going to regular therapy sessions. The only thing that would be better—or worse—would be falling for the handsome Gunner’s...

Why is that?” He grinned. “Because we’re eating at the most expensive restaurant in Ashland, and I’m not paying for it.” I rolled my eyes. “Only you would judge the quality of a meal by how much it impacts your wallet.” Finn’s grin widened. “What can I say? I’m a total food...

Review: The Thief by J.R. Ward

Review: The Thief by J.R. Ward The Thief Author: J.R.Ward Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The Thief is the sixteenth novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood (BDB) series.  Though some overarching plot lines are resolved and/or made more convoluted, it was as gripping and intriguing as I’ve come to expect.   Suffice to say, The Thief resolves the romantic plot lines between Assail (drug/arms dealing vampire) and Marisol (aka Sola the human thief).  However the new threat that Throe presents is only intensified in this novel as we learn more about his plot as well as the origin of power.  As always with this series, there are multiple plot lines running through...

Review: Dark Queen by Faith Hunter

Review: Dark Queen by Faith Hunter Dark Queen Author: Faith Hunter Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: As what was initially intended to be the final Jane Yellowrock title, Dark Queen had a lot of expectations to live up to. And I think it did so very well. This story moves incredibly fast, especially towards the end, making it at once a little difficult to keep up with in places, as well as the most thrilling of these stories to date.  One of my favorite thing about this series is that Jane has never escaped having to deal with the consequences of her actions. She has made a lot of mistakes, and learned...
