Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson

Review: A Curse Unbroken by Cecy Robson A Curse Unbroken Author: Cecy Robson Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Weird Girls series, fear not. A Curse Unbroken is not the final novel in the series. It is only the last book from Celia’s point of view, “for now”. This novel nicely wraps up Celia’s relationship with Aric and the ramifications from the last battle in the previous book with a nice pretty bow. Since the stories in the Weird Girls series build upon themselves, one should read them from the beginning. If you enjoy dark action and drama lightened by irreverent humor and witty banter between four strangely...

Review: Vampires Never Cry Wolf by Sara Humphreys

Review: Vampires Never Cry Wolf by Sara Humphreys Vampires Never Cry Wolf Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Vampires Never Cry Wolf is the third novel in the Dead in the City series.  Gikany and Una liked the story of Killian and Sadie and we look forward to more in the series. The Dead in the City series has an uncomplicated mythology and character driven stories.  It is filled with light but engaging paranormal romances.  This series is a delightful spin-off from the Amoveo series, and we have really enjoyed it.  We like how these two series are blended together despite with the slightly different mythologies between these two paranormal...

Review + Giveaway: Infinity Bell by Devon Monk

Review + Giveaway: Infinity Bell by Devon Monk Infinity Bell Author: Devon Monk Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Infinity Bell is the second novel in the tension-filled urban fantasy House Immortal series.  Gikany and Una found it more gripping, intriguing and just better than the last. It is honestly very difficult to relate how enjoyable this novel was without giving anything away.  The story continually is building upon itself.  As our heroes fight to get to where they need to be in order to fix the time rift, so much happens that describing it would spoil this wonderful book for you.  So our apologies that this will be a brief, somewhat vague...

Roy Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: As much as Gikany and Una enjoyed the debut novel, Night Owls, we weren’t sure what to expect in the next book in Night Owls series, Grave Matters.  We are happy to report that we loved it!  It was gripping and compelling and we couldn’t put it down.  We want more! The novel opens with Elly doing a little ghost busting.  When other odd things start happening, our heroes realize something big is going on and they may be the only ones who can stop it.  But the question is will our heroes...

Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs

Review: Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs Dead Heat Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Dead Heat is the fourth book in the phenomenal Alpha and Omega series.  We were stunned by the tightness of this story and how seemly different elements were used to weave a gripping and pathos-rich story together. Three years have passed since Charles and Anna mated.  They have grown together as a couple and we have loved their journey, though it is far from over.  After the revelations made at the end of the last novel, Fair Game, we wondered what was next.  Ms. Briggs did not disappoint.  Charles and Anna are still growing...

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...
