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...

Review: Anna and the Vampire Prince by Jeanne C. Stein

Review: Anna and the Vampire Prince by Jeanne C. Stein Anna and the Vampire Prince Author: Jeanne C. Stein Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: For fans of the Anna Strong Chronicles, you will not want to miss the latest novella, Anna and the Vampire Prince.  Gikany and Una liked this glimpse of Anna in transition as she mourns her mother.  It was another chance to see Vlad and gave these two readers something to ponder about what may be next in this world. ****If you haven’t read the series, this novella is not the place to start.  We strongly recommend you read the series from the beginning.**** Anna’s story has had some closure.  Her...

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake Extreme Honor Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Extreme Honor is the exciting debut novel in the True Heroes series.  I enjoyed the captivating story of David, Lyn, and Atlas. Suffice to say, I can’t wait for more in this gripping series that combines hot military men, their loyal canine companions, and the women they love. This novel sets up Hope’s Crossing Kennel, where David works with two other ex-military men.  They train dogs for anything from basic house pets to military working dogs and in between.  Atlas, a Belgian Malinois, has been returned to David to rehabilitate. Atlas, a military multipurpose dog,...

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson

Review: Of Flame and Promise by Cecy Robson Of Flame and Promise Author: Cecy Robson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: At first Gikany and Una thought we were getting Taran’s novel when we received Of Flame and Promise.  However, this is a prequel novella that gives Taran’s back-story and sets up what will be her journey in the coming novel. This novella was a breath of fresh air.  We liked seeing behind Taran’s brash bravado into a sweet and vulnerable soul.  We also loved seeing her sisters through her eyes, especially her view of Celia.  Throughout the previous novels, Celia was unsure of herself and was plagued with worry about her relationship...

Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire by Sara Humphreys

Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire by Sara Humphreys The Good, the Bad, and the Vampire Author: Sara Humphreys Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: The Good, the Bad and the Vampire is the fourth book in the Dead in the City series.  This latest offering is another fun and witty romp in this ever-expanding mythology.  Gikany and Una liked Dakota and Trixie’s journey and we wonder what will happen next in this world. First, we enjoyed the dynamic between Dakota and Trixie.  They are two vampires who appear to be polar opposites, yet are magnetically attracted to each other.  Although Trixie tries to fight her growing attraction to Dakota for her own personal...

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler

Review: In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler In the Company of Wolves Author: Paige Tyler Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: In the Company of Wolves is the third installment in the action packed and passionate SWAT series.  Overall, Gikany and Una liked Janya and Becker’s story and the continuing evolving mythology. ***Please note that the novels could be read as stand-alone, but they are better if read from the beginning as the mythology builds from book to book.*** Janya and Becker’s romance was fascinating: the story of the officer falling for the thief – but it isn’t quite that simple.  We liked that Janya was a reluctant thief, her story and...

Review: Hidden Impact by Piper J. Drake

Review: Hidden Impact by Piper J. Drake Hidden Impact Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: Although Gikany and Una are not huge romantic suspense readers, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read PJ Schynder’s new series (written under the shiny new alter ego, Piper J. Drake).  Even though the romance may have moved a little too quickly (something Gikany and Una debated), the tension-packed storyline was incredibly gripping.  Hidden Impact is a stunning new start in the passionately suspenseful Safeguard series. We won’t lie, the lust starts early, but thankfully it is lust with the possibility of more.  Maylin is looking for a distraction and some comfort,...

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus

Review: Edge of Danger by Katie Reus Edge of Danger Author: Katie Reus Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B- What We’re Talking About: Overall, we liked the latest installment in Ms. Reus’s Deadly Ops series, Edge of Danger.  The political suspense drama kept us glued to the pages even though the romantic journey struck an odd chord with us. After the last novel in the Deadly Ops series, we wondered who the newest big bad would be and what would happen next.  We were not disappointed.  Having the DEA agents we briefly met in the previous novel, Shattered Duty, take point in this one was a nice transition.  Tucker was a fascinating character in Shattered Duty...

The sequel, Dark Heart of Magic, was even better. We loved it and look forward to more. We enjoyed Lila’s humor and down-to-earth nature. Through her journey in this novel, we watched her grow in maturity. There are some world-shattering secrets Lila uncovers in Dark Heart of Magic that completely change her perspective.

Review + Excerpt: The Bloodforged by Erin Lindsey

Review + Excerpt: The Bloodforged by Erin Lindsey The Bloodforged Author: Erin Lindsey Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Bloodforged picks up a few months after the events of the first novel, The Bloodbound, ends.  This novel had very different feel from the first book, and although we liked the book overall, it wasn’t quite as solid as the previous one. The Bloodforged is a transitional novel, and that is the main reason for the different feel.  In order to get several pieces into position, Ms. Lindsey split the narrative between four characters.   Gikany and Una are a bit divided in our reactions to this change in the style of narration. ...
