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...

Review: The Tears of the Rose by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Tears of the Rose by Jeffe Kennedy The Tears of the Rose
 Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Tears of the Rose is the second novel in the Twelve Kingdoms trilogy and focuses on Amelia (Ami) the youngest sister. Though it had a slow start, Gikany and Una were captivated by Ami’s journey from petty princess to powerful queen. The previous novel, The Mark of the Tala focused on Andi, the middle child. Ami and Andi are opposites in many ways.  Andi felt invisible and to a great extent she was.  She was restless and felt like she didn’t belong, her heart yearned for something more.  Ami was...

Review: Her Lone Wolf by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Lone Wolf by Paige Tyler Her Lone Wolf Author: Paige Tyler Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Her Lone Wolf is the follow-up novel to Her Perfect Mate, focusing on Clayne, the quick tempered wolf shifter that seems to be a thorn in everyone’s side.  Though Gikany and Una were interested in his story – suspecting that the prickly exterior was due to the loss of his previous partner, the story was not what we were expecting. Firstly, we liked Danica and Clayne, they seem an excellent match for each other.  She is pretty tough and holds her own well without being intimidated by Clayne, whose gruffness and size overwhelms...

Review: Tainted Blood by M.L. Brennan

Review: Tainted Blood by M.L. Brennan Tainted Blood Author: M. L. Brennan Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: M.L. Brennan has done it again.  This is another well written, gripping, and emotionally charged novel.  Tainted Blood continues the story of Fort, the unlikely hero and reluctant vampire, as he strengthens his role in his family and the supernatural world. There is so much Gikany and Una want to share about Tainted Blood.  However, to do so would spoil it for readers.  It would also spoil it for those who haven’t read the previous two novels in the American Vampire series.  The novels build on each other as Fort slowly transitions into...

Review: Eventide by Christine Allen-Riley

Review: Eventide by Christine Allen-Riley Eventide Author: Christine Allen-Riley Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Eventide is the first book in a new young adult series that is quite promising. Gikany and Una enjoyed this slowly building story, becoming completely lost in the heroine’s plight. The story starts very slowly. We are gently introduced to Devon, the pain and grief she is battling after the loss of her best friend, and her understanding that all is not as it seems in her hometown. As the story begins to unfold, we, along with Devon, learn about the Sidhe who live and hunt in the town of Iron Falls. The tragic accidents...

Review: Incarnate by Anton Strout

Review: Incarnate by Anton Strout Incarnate Author: Anton Strout Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: C What We’re Talking About: Incarnate is the third and final book in the Spellmasons Chronicles. We enjoyed this book more than the previous one, however, we still had a couple issues with the novel. Although the world held much promise and the mythology of the stonemasons is fascinating, we felt some of the potential was lost.  Though there is more revealed about the other magical/paranormal factions in this novel, they were not deeply crafted.  The witches, wizards, and alchemists were only peripherally involved in the story.  We were unable to find out much about them and the politics that...
