Review: Black Spring by Christina Henry

Review: Black Spring by Christina Henry Black Spring Author: Christina Henry Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: Warning: Black Spring is the final (for now, according to the author) book in the Black Wings series. I do take this fact into account when assigning my rating of the book. In addition, this review does contain spoilers from the first six books of the series as well as potential spoilers from this book.

Review: Black Heart by Christina Henry

Review: Black Heart by Christina Henry Black Heart Author: Christina Henry Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Note: due to the nature of this series where the storyline continues from book to book, there are spoilers from the previous books in this review. When we last saw our heroine Madeline (Maddy) Black, her life was in imminent peril, with the infamous Agency Retrievers coming to destroy her soul. Not only had Maddy left the Agency (something unheard of) where she was an Agent of Death, but she had broken the rules by crossing over into the land of the dead. Black Heart begins at full throttle, and it takes a...

Review & Giveaway: Black Wings

Review & Giveaway: Black Wings Black Wings Author: Christina Henry  Release Date: November 30, 2010 Publisher: Ace Fantasy Madeline Black Series Book #1 ISBN: #978-0441019632 Genre: Urban Fantasy Format(s): paperback (304 pgs), e-book I received a copy of this book from the PUBLISHER for the purposes of an honest review. From GoodReads:       As an Agent of Death, Madeline Black is responsible for escorting the souls of the dearly departed to the afterlife.
