Review: Stonecast by Anton Strout

Review: Stonecast by Anton Strout Stonecast Author: Anton Strout Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: C, 2.5 Stars What We’re Talking About: Note: This review contains minor spoilers. Stonecast is the sequel to Alchemystic in the Spellmasons Chronicles.  Sadly, we were disappointed in this much-anticipated continuation of the journey of Alex and her friends through this fascinating new world.  The elements that we enjoyed most in the previous novel were missing from this edition, making it a slow and difficult read. Alex is still struggling to understand and use her spellmason abilities so she can save Stanis from his father.  While she is currently unable to live in her previous home, she has set up...

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond

Sunday Snippet – Blood Bond    About the Book Blood Bond Author:  Jeanne C. Stein Publisher:   ACE Released:  August 27, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet Next morning, Frey and I are the last to the breakfast table. I’m glad no one asks why.  It would be embarrassing.  Even an adult daughter doesn’t want to acknowledge that she’s late coming down because she and her fiancé were having sex.  Lots of sex.  Great sex.  Sex so good I didn’t want stop.  When I feel color start up the back of my neck, I decide what I’d better do is stop thinking about it. I slink into a chair at the table and reach for the coffeepot.  “Where are the...

Review: Blood Bond by Jeanne C. Stein

Review: Blood Bond by Jeanne C. Stein Blood Bond Author: Jeanne C. Stein  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B, 3 Stars What We’re Talking About: Blood Bond is the latest installment in the Anna Strong Chronicles, and it seems to be a transitional novel to the next story arc.  Although it is an emotionally charged novel, we felt a bit distanced from the storyline. We must make it clear, Gikany and Una started this series two books ago, with Crossroads.  Therefore we do not have a strong connection to Anna’s family, their situation and, most importantly, her relationship and history with Frey.  Blood Bond is the culmination of the history of Anna and Frey. Frey and...

Review: Perdition by Ann Aguirre

Review: Perdition by Ann Aguirre Perdition Author: Ann Aquirre  Reviewer: Nima Rating: A, 4.5 stars What I’m Talking About: Author Ann Aguirre has based Perdition, the first book in her new series, The Dred Chronicles, in same alternative universe as her Sirantha Jax Series, but set several decades into the future.  Instead of the expanse of space that was the world for a jumper like Jax, the whole of main character Dresdemona  “Dred” Devos’ story is narrowed and squeezed down into the confines of the penal colony ship that is Perdition.  Once upon a time Perdition was a vast mining vessel.  Part prison, part asylum, now it slowly rots away in a static orbit...

Review: Harbinger by Philippa Ballantine

Review: Harbinger by Philippa Ballantine Harbinger Author: Philippa Ballantine Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: A, 4.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Harbinger is the fourth and final installment of the marvelous Books of the Order series by Philippa Ballantine. Although one could probably get away reading it solo, I do not recommend it. Ms. Ballantine has created an immensely rich fantasy world with stories that build from book to book, and it is best read from beginning to end. Harbinger truly is the climatic culmination of every moment and event from the previous three books – and a fantastic one at that! The story opens not long after the dramatic conclusion of Wrayth, with the Order...
