Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake

Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake Deadly Testimony Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una liked this second novel in the Safeguard series.  Kyle and Lizzy are not the stereotypical couple in a military romance.  We enjoyed the honesty of their characters, their uniqueness, and their journey. Kyle and Lizzy do not have the typical roles that one sees in military romance.  Kyle is the “damsel” in the distress while Lizzy is the hero.  We enjoyed this change.  We liked how Kyle, although trained in martial arts, was not a fighter in that sense.  He was vulnerable, and we appreciated seeing a man struggle with...

Review: Tieryn’s Fury by Abigail Owen

Review: Tieryn’s Fury by Abigail Owen Tieryn’s Fury Author: Abigail Owen Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Tieryn’s Fury is the third novel in the Shadowcat Nation series.  Although we enjoyed the couple’s journey in this installment more, the mythology takes a bit of a turn. The Shadowcat Nation series is a fascinating paranormal romance series.  The series centers on mountain lion shifters with wolf, bear, and other animal shifters in the background.  Some of the shifters possess an additional special ability, such as the ability to heal or see the future.  They are rare and therefore protected.  The mountain lion shifter coalition has agreed to only allow each dare (community)...

Review: The Crown of the Queen by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Crown of the Queen by Jeffe Kennedy The Crown of the Queen (from For Crown and Kingdom) Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany & Una Rating: B & A What We’re Talking About: What a treat for fans of the Twelve Kingdoms series!  The Crown of the Queen is a novella that transitions from the Twelve Kingdoms series to the new Uncharted Realms series.  This is also a nice introduction to Dafne, the heroine of the first book in the Uncharted Realms series, The Pages of the Mind. This novella takes place shortly after the conclusion of The Talon of the Hawk.  We witness the aftermath of it all: the reconciliation of the sisters, the strength of the bonds...

Review: Bright Blaze of Magic by Jennifer Estep

Review: Bright Blaze of Magic by Jennifer Estep Bright Blaze of Magic Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: It is always difficult to say goodbye to a great series, and that is definitely the case with this final book in the Black Blade series, Bright Blaze of Magic.  We have enjoyed Lila’s adventures and the world that she thrived in.  This final book is an exciting and wonderful conclusion to the series. In this final book Lila’s revenge is sated, those oppressed are freed, and, most importantly, Lila has found hope for the future with her new love and the family which she has become an integral part.  The final...

Review: Reckoning by Veronica Wolff

Review: Reckoning by Veronica Wolff Reckoning Author: Veronica Wolff Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have eagerly anticipated this final novel in The Watchers young adult series.  We have been mesmerized by this rich and fascinating world of a secret society of vampires and the candidates they lure in so they can train them to be Watchers.  Although the novel nicely ties up everything with a big bow, we thought it was not as smooth as the previous novels. Drew finally exhibits a sense of maturity in this final installment.  We enjoyed seeing her finally take to heart the lessons so many had tried to teach her. ...

Review: Phoenix Reborn by J.D. Tyler

Review: Phoenix Reborn by J.D. Tyler Phoenix Reborn Author: J.D. Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una have been looking forward to Noah and Nix’s novel.  We’ve enjoyed Noah’s character and have been eagerly waiting for him to finally be claimed by his mate.  Sadly, Phoenix Reborn fell flat for us. Nix has been recovering from being captured and tortured by enemies.  Upon his rescue some books back, Nix met his mate Noah, the Alpha Pack nurse.  In the previous novels Nix has adamantly maintained that he is straight and was horrified that his mate is a man.  This has been something we have been waiting to find...

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler

Review: Her Fierce Warrior by Paige Tyler Her Fierce Warrior Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall Gikany and Una have liked the X-Ops series, although, the latest offering, Her Fierce Warrior, fell a bit flat for us.  The plight of stopping the evil doctors was gripping, but the romantic storyline between Minka and Angelo was lacking. Over the course of the previous three books, the Department of Covert Operations (DCO) team has been trying to uncover the mole in their organization, find the evil doctors making the hybrids, all while doing their normal jobs.  We liked that this novel touched base with some previous couples, especially Landon and...

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs

Review: Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs Fire Touched Author: Patricia Briggs Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Ms. Briggs has amazed us again!  Gikany and Una have waited with baited breath for this latest installment in the Mercy Thompson series.  Fire Touched is another dynamic novel in this rich world. The strife between the Fae and the rest of the world has reached a boiling point.  Fire Touched is the pinnacle of this over-arching plot.  After defeating a rampaging troll, Mercy proclaims that the Tri-Cities area is under the packs protection.  This one heartfelt reaction makes the Tri-Cities the epicenter of the ever-increasing political storm between the humans, Fae, werewolves and...

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus

Review: A Covert Affair by Katie Reus A Covert Affair Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: A Covert Affair is the fifth offering in the Deadly Ops series.  This romantic suspense series follows ultra-secretive NSA operatives as they combat evil (both domestic and foreign) while finding their soulmates along the way.  Gikany and Una overall liked the story of Nathan and Amelia. In this installment we follow Nathan, an operative who was wounded in the previous novel.  He has recovered and is returning to duty on a mission that reconnects him to his lost love, Amelia.  When they were young, Amelia broke Nathan’s heart and it seems neither of...

Review: Grave Visions by Kalayna Price

Review: Grave Visions by Kalayna Price Grave Visions Author: Kalayna Price Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: After waiting with baited breath for the fourth Alex Craft novel, it is finally here.  Grave Visions was well worth waiting for!  Gikany and Una, although we struggled at times to remember the events of the previous three novels, found ourselves happily immersed in this fascinating world. Although we wished at times that we had reread at least the previous novel, we were able to recall enough of the previous events so that we did not feel lost.  However, it might be useful for other fans to reread the previous books so you have...
