Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs Fire Touched Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Ms. Briggs has amazed us again!  Gikany and Una have waited with baited breath for this latest installment in the Mercy Thompson series.  Fire Touched is another dynamic novel in this rich world. The strife between the Fae and the rest of the world has reached a boiling point.  Fire Touched is the pinnacle of this over-arching plot.  After defeating a rampaging troll, Mercy proclaims that the Tri-Cities area is under the packs protection.  This one heartfelt reaction makes the Tri-Cities the epicenter of the ever-increasing political storm between the humans, Fae, werewolves and...

Review: The Brimstone Deception by Lisa Shearin

Review: The Brimstone Deception by Lisa Shearin The Brimstone Deception Author: Lisa Shearin Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Picking up immediately after the conclusion of the previous book, The Brimstone Deception opens with Mak on a date with Rake and Ian on date with Kylie. At the same restaurant. Were Ian is convinced that Mak is only with Rake because the gorgeous goblin enthralled her. However, before anyone can enjoy themselves, another patron suddenly realizes he can see monsters all around him. This puts SPI into action, discovering there is a new drug called Brimstone being circulated around town, and it’s leaving a path of dead dealers in its wake. Lisa Shearin’s SPI...

Review: Graveyard by William C. Dietz

Review: Graveyard by William C. Dietz Graveyard Author: William C. Dietz Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I’m a little sad to say that Graveyard is the final book in the Mutant Files trilogy.  The plight of Detective Lee stopping the Bonebreaker (before he captures her) reaches its climax and resolution along with a few other elements along the way.  I really enjoyed this final novel in the trilogy though I am going to be a bit sad to say goodbye to this world. *****Please note this is the final book in a trilogy and therefore would be spoilerish.  I recommend starting with the first book, Deadeye so you can truly enjoy the overall...

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. ...

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...
