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...

Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs

Review: Burn Bright by Patricia Briggs Burn Bright Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Burn Bright is another fascinating and thrilling installment in the Alpha and Omega series.  Gikany and Una were fascinated by the more in-depth look into some of the relationships in the Mercy Thompson World. This series is one of our all-time favorites: the world-building, the characters, and the ever-changing politics – it’s all captivating.  The contrast of the Alpha and Omega series is that we experience Mercy’s world from a completely different perspective (sometimes several).  There is an interesting insight presented early in this novel about Bran.  In fact, though he is absent for...

Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop

Review: Lake Silence by Anne Bishop Lake Silence Author: Anne Bishop Reviewer: B. Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: As a reader who mostly enjoyed the original five stories of The Others, I was both hopeful and concerned about the direction the author might take as the series continued. Having finished Lake Silence, I still feel somewhat conflicted, even though there was quite a lot of time spent establishing the new environment and characters that will make up this part of the same universe. The glimpses of the wild country that were given before were both distant and brief, and there were even fewer details about what life would actually be like in small human...

Sunday Snippet: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price

Sunday Snippet: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price  About the Book Grave Ransom    Author:  Kalayna Price Publisher:   ACE Released:  July 4, 2017 Series:   Alex Craft #5 Genre:  Urban Fantasy Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon REVIEW Snippet: “Why am I not surprised to see you here?” an eerily familiar, and not completely welcomed, voice asked from off to my right. I spun, my gaze darting around the busy front lobby of Central Precinct.  I didn’t see the dark-haired woman, who had always been clad in black leather during my short experience with her a few months back and who should have stood out in the precinct.  Of course, I didn’t fully expect to spot her with...

Sunday Snippet: Blackwing by Ed McDonald  About the Book Blackwing    Author:  Ed McDonald Publisher:   ACE Released:  October 3, 2017 Series:   The Raven’s Mark #1 Genre:  Fantasy Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon REVIEW Snippet: “What the f*** is going on?” Nenn asked. 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: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Ransom by Kalayna Price Grave Ransom Author: Kalayna Price Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Fans of the Alex Craft series rejoice – this book was definitely worth the wait!  Gikany and Una enjoyed this fifth novel in the adventures of grave witch, Alex Craft.  Grave Ransom was an intriguing and gripping urban fantasy detective drama. We need to preface this review by stating that since it has been some time from the last book, Gikany reread the previous novels before jumping into this latest release.  Una being Una, jumped right in.  It took Una a bit of time to acclimate to the mythology and where we were with...

Review: Moonbreaker by Simon R. Green

Review: Moonbreaker by Simon R. Green Moonbreaker Author: Simon R. Green Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: After the last novel, Dr. DOA, we were concerned on where Moonbreaker would go.  Left with an unusual cliffhanger (for this series), Gikany and Una were nervous about what Eddie and Molly would face.  Never fear fans of the Secret Histories series, Mr. Green delivers a gripping, hilarious and fascinating action/adventure as we have not only come to expect, but love. ***Please note that the standard disclaimer for a long running series applies.  There was a huge cliffhanger in the previous book.  There will be spoilers for it here not to mention spoilers for...

Review: Cold Reign by Faith Hunter

Review: Cold Reign by Faith Hunter Cold Reign Author: Faith Hunter Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: All of the familiar players are back in the eleventh story in the Jane Yellowrock series: Jane and Beast, the Youngers, Bruiser, Leo, Edmund, Derek, Grégoire, the Robere twins, Gee, Brute, Ricky, etc. Leo, of course, is so insufferably arrogant (yet necessary) that I kind of wished Jane would just kick him, but Jane’s family, Clan Yellowrock, becomes more endearing and fascinating by the minute. This growing assemblage of personalities is my favorite part of Cold Reign, and Jane is infinitely better for their presence in her life. In Cold Reign, Jane is once again trying...

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs Silence Fallen Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: As complete and utter Mercy Thompson fans, suffice to say we loved Silence Fallen.  However, it was a bit different, not only where the story goes, but in the telling. Adam and Mercy have come a long, long way.  They are an awesome team.  But a lot of time has passed since Mercy has had to truly face trouble on her own.  In Silence Fallen, Mercy does just that.  She is abducted and held against her will in another country.  As she strives to escape, Mercy finds herself from one hot pan into another. ...
