Sunday Snippet – The Lair

Sunday Snippet – The Lair  About the Book The Lair  Author:  Emily McKay  Publisher:   Berkley Trade Released:  November 5, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet “This is where you seek sanctuary?  In a freezer in Wal-Mart? You can’t be serious.” “Serious as airtight, reinforced steel doors.” “Airtight, reinforced steel doors–” She paused to grab the handle and swing the door open.  “That open from the outside.” He smirked.  “Yeah.  Handles on the inside, too.  Besides, I haven’t met a Tick yet who actually thinks to try that.  They lose interest in what they can’t see or smell.  They’re animals.  Once you disappear into that box, you no longer exist to them.” She took a step closer to the door. ...

Review: There All Along by Lauren Dane & Megan Hart

Review: There All Along by Lauren Dane & Megan Hart There All Along Author: Lauren Dane and Megan Hart Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: There All Along is a two-story anthology based on finding love that was “there all along.” Both stories are set in alternative/futuristic worlds; however the first tale, “Land’s End” by Lauren Dane, reads more like western frontier than science fiction. On the other hand, “By the Sea of Sand” by Megan Hart has a distinct sci-fi romance edge. Both stories are entertaining and enjoyable. I’ve never read either author, and this stand-alone anthology has whet my appetite for more from both writers. “Land’s End” by Lauren Dane The Land’s End Highway...

Review: Wild Darkness by Lauren Dane

Review: Wild Darkness by Lauren Dane Wild Darkness Author: Lauren Dane Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A, 4.5 stars What I’m Talking About: Wild Darkness was a fabulous conclusion to Lauren Dane’s Bound by Magick series.  Even though the storyline resolved – the Faine and Helena storyline, as well as that of the Owen/Genessee witches – I still have soooo many questions about the universe!  I guess that’s a sign of some magical storytelling, huh? I fell in love with Faine and the Lycians while reading Going Under, the third book in this spin-off of Ms. Dane’s Cascadia Wolves and de LaVega Cats series.  I couldn’t wait to get this title, and I’ve been waiting ten months...

Review: The Lair by Emily McKay

Review: The Lair by Emily McKay The Lair Author: Emily McKay  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A, 4.5 Stars What We’re Talking About: The Lair is the exciting sequel to the YA novel, The Farm.  Although The Farm wasn’t exactly what we were expecting, we liked it. But right from the start, The Lair was a gripping read which we enjoyed, and we look forward to more. The story starts off near where The Farm ended.  Mel has been turned by Sebastian, and he has taken her under his wing to “raise” her.  For the first time in Lily’s life, she is not only not watching over her sister, but they are physically separated.  However,...

Review: Drawn Together by Lauren Dane

Review: Drawn Together by Lauren Dane Drawn Togther Author: Lauren Dane Reviewer: Nima Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Drawn Together takes us back to the roots of the Brown Family Novels.  This is the story of Raven Smith; that is not her full name and it is full of meaning—which I will not spoil for you.  It is, however, one of many things that makes Raven unique.  Raven is tied to the Brown family through Erin, her best friend (Laid Bare, #1) and Erin’s brother Brody (Coming Undone, #2).  Raven used to date Brody, but now works for him in his tattoo store as a talented artist. This far into the series,...

Review: No Reservations by Stephanie Julian

Review: No Reservations by Stephanie Julian No Reservations Author: Stephanie Julian Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: A, 4.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: The second story in Ms. Julian’s marvelous Salon Games series begins with the New Year’s Eve party scene from the first book, By Private Invitation, when Kate Song meets Tyler Golden–only this time we see the scene from Kate’s point-of-view (POV). Kate is attending party with BFF Annabelle while Kate’s finance, Arnie, stays home. Soon enough, the book jumps to present day, which lines up with the conclusion of the first book. This is where we discover Kate telling Tyler that she’s broken off her engagement. Tyler Golden owns one-half of the lush Philadelphia...

Review: Heart Fortune by Robin D. Owens

Review: Heart Fortune by Robin D. Owens Heart Fortune Author: Robin D. Owens    Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Heart Fortune is the fourth Celta book I’ve read by Robin D. Owens.  Each book is a fabulous venture into a world I never realize I’ve missed until I’m immersed and involved, unwilling to rejoin present-day.  The Celta series is twelve titles strong, and while I’ve been unable to pick up the backlist due to time constraints, I do hope I’m able to make that happen at some point in the future.  These titles do, however, function as stand-alone novels.  Long-time readers of the series will, no doubt, be delighted to see...
