Or one of the other sister-cities. I’m not sure which is closest.” “Uh huh.” Finished with the stallion’s grooming, Lonen checked his hooves for any...

Review: Teeth Long and Sharp Anthology

Review: Teeth Long and Sharp Anthology Teeth Long and Sharp Authors: Grace Draven, Antioch Grey, Aria M. Jones, Jeffe Kennedy, Mel Sterling Reviewer: Una Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Teeth Long and Sharp is a chillingly lovely collection of short stories.  Each one stands alone and not everyone has a happy ending – well, depending on which character you align with.  Fascinating, suspenseful, ironically witty, this collection is perfectly timed for a Halloween reading. Ivories was a very short snippet of a contemporary story.  It reminded me of an impressionist painting, you are able to interrupt or derive what you will from it.  As I saw it, the girl and the piano had a...

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Oria’s Gambit by Jeffe Kennedy Oria’s Gambit Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: After the cliffhanger in the previous book, Lonen’s War, Gikany and Una were eager to start Oria’s Gambit.  We enjoyed it though it was a completely different feel from the previous novel. We go from a fast-paced novel filled with battles, negotiations, and confrontations to one that is a battlefront of politics and maneuverings filled with anxious waiting and debating.  Though it was still very gripping, it was a change from the pace of the previous novel.  In Oria’s Gambit, Oria and Lonen race to obtain the throne in Baran in order to protect...

REVIEW TO COME Snippet “What do you know about hwil?” She sounded, and felt, stiff. “Juli told me some, last night when I brought you here.” “Juli shouldn’t have—” “Juli realizes that I’m going to need to know some of these things that you think to withhold from me. This is an important aspect of your life—and of...

Review: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy Lonen’s War Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Lonen’s War is the debut novel in the new Sorcerous Moons series.  We enjoyed this new fantasy world and with the cliffhanger ending, we are eager for more. First and foremost we love this world.  The rich fantasy mythology that Ms. Kennedy created is mesmerizing. The sorcerous Baran is at odds with the non-magical barbarian Destrye.  The novel begins with the Destrye invasion of Baran.  We follow Lonen, the third son of King Archimago, leading one faction of the Destrye while Oria, the only daughter of King Tav sits fretting in her tower.  The story...

Sunday Snippet: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy

Sunday Snippet: Lonen’s War by Jeffe Kennedy  About the Book Lonen’s War    Author:  Jeffe Kennedy Publisher:   Self-published Released:  July 19, 2019 Series:   Sorcerous Moons #1 Genre:  Fantasy Romance Author contact links:  Jeffe can be found online at her website: JeffeKennedy.com, every Sunday at the popular SFF Seven blog, on Facebook, on Goodreads and pretty much constantly on Twitter @jeffekennedy. REVIEW (Coming soon) Snippet Lonen had seen many strange things in the past weeks. Impossible magic and horrific deaths that would take him years to purge from his nightmares, if he ever could. If he lived that long. The sight of the woman in the window hit him with enough force to unbalance him. Through the blood-drenched night, he’d kept focus on one kill...

Author Guest Post: Jeffe Kennedy

Author Guest Post: Jeffe Kennedy Today, I happy to host one of my favorite people here at That’s What I’m Talking About… Please welcome Jeffe Kennedy who is here celebrating the upcoming release of Lonen’s War, the first book in her new fantasy romance series. From Jeffe: I’m not much of an architect. By that I mean, so far as planning my books. That’s George R.R. Martin’s analogy. He says most writers fall in a spectrum, where the far end of architects have detailed blueprints planned ahead of time that are strictly followed, and at the other are the gardeners, who plant seeds and see what grows. I might have some trellises and nicely laid-out flower...

Sunday Snippet: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy

Sunday Snippet: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy  About the Book The Pages of the Mind    Author:  Jeffe Kennedy Publisher:   Kensington Publishing Released:  May 31, 2016 Series:   The Twelve Kingdoms #6/The Uncharted Realms #1 Genre:  Paranormal Romance Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon, Book Despository, iTunes, Kobo REVIEW Snippet Moving slowly, he took my hand and mimicked the motion, brushing his fingers lightly over my upraised palm. The sensation shivered through me and I caught my breath as my heart thudded and blood surged to the surface of my skin. “You okay?” Jepp asked without turning around. “Yes.” Except I wasn’t. I needed to think, something that became impossible when this man touched me. Nakoa flicked Jepp...

Review: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy

Review: The Pages of the Mind by Jeffe Kennedy The Pages of the Mind Author: Jeffe Kennedy Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: The Pages of the Mind is the debut novel of the Twelve Kingdom spin-off series, The Uncharted Realms.  Overall we enjoyed the first book in the beginning of a new series. Gikany and Una love the world that this series takes place in.  It is not imperative to read the Twelve Kingdoms series first; however, you will have a stronger understanding and appreciation if you do read the previous series (and you should because it is good).  You will also have a much stronger connection to Dafne.  For fans that have...

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...
