Review: Dragonslayer by Eleri Stone

Review: Dragonslayer by Eleri Stone Dragonslayer Author: Eleri Stone Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Eleri Stone’s Twilight of the Gods series share the stories of the citizens of Ragnarok, Iowa. They are the Æsir: the descendants of Asgard. I absolutely LOVE that all of these god-descended heroes are farmers in Iowa! The third story in this entertaining series, Dragonslayer, opens just about one year after the conclusion of the previous book, Witch Bound. Previously we learned that Christian was to marry Raquel in a marriage arranged since birth, but neither loved the other, and Raquel fell in love with Fen, Christian’s best friend. When Christian stepped aside for the pair,...

Review: Revenant by Larissa Ione

Review: Revenant by Larissa Ione Revenant Author: Larissa Ione Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: How do I summarize a story that has been in the making for ten whole books (well at least five books)?! Revenant is not only the wonderful story of a broken male finding love, but the exciting culmination and climax of the ultimate battle between the heavens and  underworld that began back with the first Lords of Deliverance title. Because of the nature of this series, I strongly urge one NOT to read Revenant as a stand alone book. You will be confused. There is such a huge amount of back story that even I was a bit...

Review: Night Shift Anthology Night Shift Author: Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, Lisa Shearin, Milla Vane Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Night Shift anthology is a wonderful collection of paranormal and fantasy novellas from some wonderful authors. “Secrets at Midnight” by Nalini Singh Psy/Changeling series #13.5 This enjoyable novella from the world of Psy-Changeling shares the romance of Bastien and Kirby.

ARC Review: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep

ARC Review: Black Widow by Jennifer Estep Black Widow Author: Jennifer Estep Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Black Widow just blew me away. Not only does it have all the usual parts that make the Elemental Assassin series one on my favorites… tough as nails Gin, witty banter, the love of family and friends. But it has so much more than any of the prior titles. MMM is unlike any villain Gin has faced before. She is one that enjoys the games and her machinations. She tears Gin apart by attacking her family and friends with red tape and legal problems, something Gin doesn’t have the means to deal with, right away...
