Review: Unbound by Sara Humphreys

Review: Unbound by Sara Humphreys Unbound Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Unbound is a short and sweet novella in the Amoveo series.

Review: Master of Plagues by E.L. Tettensor

Review: Master of Plagues by E.L. Tettensor Master of Plagues Author: E.L. Tettensor Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been on pins and needles, anxiously awaiting Master of Plagues.  Ms. Tettensor did not disappoint!  Though this mystery was a bit different from the first, we still enjoyed the mythology, the world, and the twists and turns of this tightly woven story. The novel opens as a plague is starting to decimate one of the outlying areas of Kennian.  Lenoir and Kody are called in to determine if the epidemic was intentionally caused and if so who might have orchestrated it.  As the clues are slowly uncovered, our heroes...

Review: Hunter Reborn by Katie Reus

Review: Hunter Reborn by Katie Reus Hunter Reborn Author: Katie Reus Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: After thoroughly loving the previous novel, Avenger’s Heat, Gikany and Una anxiously awaited Hunter Reborn, hoping to learn more about vampires.  Although we got more than we expected in some ways, we were a little disappointed in others. First, we loved the story of Aiden and Larissa.  Not only did we get to learn more about the vampires, we have a vampire-shifter pairing.  We enjoyed that the estrangement of these star-crossed lovers was caused by others and that their reconnection wasn’t hampered by misunderstandings.  Larissa’s amnesia could have made the story seem very clichéd,...

Review: White Knight by Kelly Meade

Review: White Knight by Kelly Meade White Knight Author: Kelly Meade Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C+ What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been eagerly awaiting Knight’s story from the first novel, Black Rook.  Everything in the two previous books has led up to this final book in the Cornerstone Run trilogy. Unfortunately, we were disappointed with Knight’s journey. Note: this is a review of the final book of a trilogy.  It contains spoilers for those who have not read the previous two books. Read at your own risk. First, we love this world; it is rich and full of promise.  Even though this is the final book in this trilogy, we hope...

Review: Tales from the Nightside by Simon R. Green

Review: Tales from the Nightside by Simon R. Green Tales from the Nightside Author: Simon R. Green Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: This was a real treat to read. Tales from the Nightside is a must read for any fans of the Nightside series. For those unfamiliar with the series, you may enjoy the book, but the stories within Tales from the Nightside contain spoilers for the series…you’ve been warned. Una and Gikany are fans of Simon Green’s work. We enjoy both the Secret History and Ghostfinders series.  We discovered him after his completion of the Nightside series.  Gikany picked up the series and read them all because she was intrigued by the...

Review: Hungry Like the Wolf by Paige Tyler

Review: Hungry Like the Wolf by Paige Tyler Hungry Like the Wolf Author: Paige Tyler Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Hungry Like the Wolf is a promising debut series.  Fans of Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series should enjoy this new SWAT series.  It has an interesting and new werewolf mythology.  The novel slowly unfolds into a compelling but light paranormal romance with a bit of action. We enjoyed that this series is character driven and well balanced between romance and action.  We hope that the fascinating werewolf mythology will be further divulged as the series develops.  In this series, werewolves have a gene that is only activated when a person is facing a...

Review: Wolf’s Fall by J.D. Tyler

Review: Wolf’s Fall by J.D. Tyler Wolf’s Fall Author: J.D. Tyler Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C+ What We’re Talking About: Wolf’s Fall is the sixth novel in the Alpha Pack series. Gikany and Una had been looking forward to Nick’s story – there was so much potential. Unfortunately, for us Nick and Calla’s story fizzled and left us a bit disappointed. Note: This review contains spoilers from earlier books in the series. The books in this series build on each other to a degree. At the end of the previous novel, Nick was still recovering from the traumatic events of his capture. The ending of Cole’s Redemption gave us a glimpse of Calla and...

Review: Vacant by Alex Hughes

Review: Vacant by Alex Hughes Vacant Author: Alex Hughes Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Note: There are spoilers of previous books in this review. The books in this series build on each other. Seriously read the previous books starting with Clean before you read this one. Read this review at your risk. Ms. Hughes has done it again!  Gikany and Una are stunned by the realistic foundation of this stunning science fiction series.  Adam and Cherabino reached a momentous pinnacle in Vacant and were forcibly thrown off into a murky future. Word of warning – if you thought the previous novels were heartbreaking, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Vacant...

Review: The Vault by Emily McKay

Review: The Vault by Emily McKay The Vault Author: Emily McKay Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Note: This review contains spoilers from the previous two titles. If you have not read the previous books, read this review at your risk. Gikany and Una have come to appreciate the compelling world of The Farm series. The unique vampire mythology is fascinating. Humans already possess the DNA that can turn us from thinking beings into ticks consumed by only the hunt and need for blood. That this potential can be made a reality through a catalyst created by human scientists is staggering. The previous two novels, The Farm and The Lair, have...

Review: A Cursed Bloodline by Cecy Robson

Review: A Cursed Bloodline by Cecy Robson A Cursed Bloodline Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: NOTE: This review contains spoilers from previous books in the series. The Weird Girls is a series in which each book builds upon the previous books, and therefore, you should start with first book, Sealed with a Curse or try the series out by reading either of the two prequel novellas, The Weird Girls or A Curse Awakened. After the conclusion of Cursed by Destiny, Gikany and Una were on pins and needles awaiting A Cursed Bloodline to find out how Celia would overcome the cliffhanger threat left by Anara. Though the first...
