Review: Redzone by William C. Dietz

Review: Redzone by William C. Dietz Redzone Author: William C. Dietz Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Redzone is the second novel in the futuristic detective series: The Mutant Files.  Detective Lee’s quest to capture the Bonebreaker is further complicated along with a bit of tough self-discovery and her knack for making new enemies. I liked this sequel more so than the previous novel, Deadeye. Part of my increased enjoyment was that there were less points of view than the previous novel.  We were able to be in Lee’s head for longer periods, along with the Bonebreaker, with less side-point of views.  Though, the additional POVs were necessary and fascinating. However, maybe it was...

Review + Excerpt: The Bloodforged by Erin Lindsey

Review + Excerpt: The Bloodforged by Erin Lindsey The Bloodforged Author: Erin Lindsey Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Bloodforged picks up a few months after the events of the first novel, The Bloodbound, ends.  This novel had very different feel from the first book, and although we liked the book overall, it wasn’t quite as solid as the previous one. The Bloodforged is a transitional novel, and that is the main reason for the different feel.  In order to get several pieces into position, Ms. Lindsey split the narrative between four characters.   Gikany and Una are a bit divided in our reactions to this change in the style of narration. ...

Cormack slept above the coverlet and on his back, with one arm raised over his head, while the other rested by his side. His hair was still damp from his shower, and he wore jeans but no shirt, as if he’d just rested his head and sleep claimed him first. His...

Review: Autumn Moon by Jan DeLima

Review: Autumn Moon by Jan DeLima Autumn Moon Author: Jan DeLima Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Autumn Moon is another exciting tale in the Celtic Wolves series. Ms. DeLima has found a way to make shifters and paranormal romance exciting and engrossing again. I love her mix of mythology, even if I get confused by the terms from time to time. What I’ve learned is that I don’t have to remember every single detail to enjoy the story. Cormack and Elen have a romance that is a few hundred years in the making. Long-time friends, hampered by the fact that he was born in his wolf form and unable to shift, the pair...

Review: Summer Moon by Jan DeLima

Review: Summer Moon by Jan DeLima Note: As I was preparing my post for tomorrow’s review of the third book in Ms. DeLima’s Celtic Wolf series, I discovered that I never posted my review of the second book! Eep! So here is a no-frills review of the title; no links, no book info, etc. I hope you enjoy the review! Summer Moon Author: Jan DeLima Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ Summer Moon is the follow up title to Jan DeLima’s delightful debut, Celtic Moon. Set in northern New England, the series follows a werewolf pack/community who views its Celtic roots and the Guardians of its race with unease. Summer Moon picks up the story of these...

Review: Breakout by Ann Aguirre

Review: Breakout by Ann Aguirre Breakout Author: Ann Aguirre Reviewer:  Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Breakout picks up right where Havoc left off, completing the Dred Chronicles.  The series should be read in order.  New readers of the trilogy will have the luxury of reading the series without the publication gaps the rest of us have experienced.  However, Aguirre created such strong characters and vivid descriptions that I had no problems falling right back into the confines of the penal colony of Perdition and its conspiracies. In fact, it turned out to be a relatively quick read for that fact. I loved that we got some unexpected background on more than one...

Review: Lady of Magick by Sylvia Izzo Hunter

Review: Lady of Magick by Sylvia Izzo Hunter Lady of Magick Author: Sylvia Izzo Hunter Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Ms. Hunter has done it again!  I enjoyed this second installment in the hauntingly beautiful and mysterious Noctis Magicae series. Though Lady of Magick moves slowly, it is only because it is like a chess match; pieces slowly moved into position until you realize too late the trap you are in. As in the previous novel, Sophie and Grey move about in their latest adventure, while slowly the mystery and clues are building up around them. I love the slow burn mystery set within scenery and a world that is breathtakingly and hauntingly beautiful...

Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews Magic Shifts Author: Ilona Andrews Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s honestly becoming difficult to write reviews for the Kate Daniels series because I cannot find the words to express how amazing the books and overall series are. The world building, story telling, plot development, characters’ relationships… every aspect of the series… it all works so well, the stories are darn near perfection. Every book, while completely original, builds upon the previous story, creating an utterly sublime experience, making me want to reread the series from the beginning each time. If you aren’t reading the Kate Daniels series, you are missing out. Note: This review...

Review: Celtic Moon by Jan DeLima

Review: Celtic Moon by Jan DeLima Celtic Moon Author: Jan DeLima Reviewer: Jen Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: It’s been a long time since I’ve been so captivated with a paranormal romance. Starting with a bang, Celtic Moon offers readers a unique take on the werewolf mythology coupled with an engrossing storyline. Relying heavily on Celtic origins, the story integrates shifters, malevolent Guardians, and even gods. But now I’m getting ahead of myself… Celtic Moon is simply a good story and wonderful romance. Having discovered the true nature of her lover and father of her unborn child, Sophie ran from Dylan and kept herself and their son hidden for 16 years. However, now that...
