Review: Iron Night by M.L. Brennan

Review: Iron Night by M.L. Brennan Iron Night Author: M.L. Brennan  Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A+ What We’re Talking About: Iron Night is the sequel to Generation V in the Generation V series.  We really enjoyed Generation V: it was fresh and unique, gripping and engrossing.  Iron Night knocks Generation V out of the park!  Gikany and Una loved it and cannot wait until we get more of Fort and Suze! **NOTE – there may be some mild spoilers for Generation V in this review.  So please, just go out, purchase or borrow Generation V so you can catch up on this fabulous series.** As much as we loved Fort’s debut in Generation V,...

Sunday Snippet: Hell Bent by Devon Monk

Sunday Snippet: Hell Bent by Devon Monk  About the Book Hell Bent Author:  Devon Monk Publisher:   Roc Released:  November 5, 2013 REVIEW HERE Snippet I bought the boots, the statue, and a pack of cigarettes.  Made my way toward the front of the store.  Passed in front of a stockroom door and noted a guy walking out of it. Walked past him before I heard the click. I turned. Did not expect the Taser in that man’s right hand, nor the gun in his left.  I also didn’t expect the other two guys who strode out of the sporting goods and household paint aisles I called on magic, just as the guy with the guns raised them both...

Review: Hell Bent by Devon Monk

Review: Hell Bent by Devon Monk Hell Bent Author: Devon Monk  Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A What We’re Talking About: Hell Bent is the debut novel in the spin-off (or for those faithful Allie Beckstrom followers, continuation) series, Broken Magic.  We loved this new novel following Shame and the new world now lacking the magic that once dominated. Una was a faithful Allie Beckstrom follower.  She has read the complete series and was thrilled to find out that Ms. Monk was continuing the series (sort of).  Gikany however has read the first couple Allie Beckstrom novels, but did not finish the series (but will…even if Una has to twist her arm).  So, if you...

Sunday Snippet – Possession

Sunday Snippet – Possession    About the Book Possession Author:  Kat Richardson  Publisher:   ROC Released:  August 6, 2013  REVIEW HERE Snippet “Any luck?” I asked, hearing Wrothen snort in derision behind me. “Depends on how you define that.  Lots of ghosts around, but they aren’t talking to me.”  Then he drew and excited breath and perked up, staring over my shoulder toward the bed.  “Oh! She’s up!” “No, she’s not,” the nurse snapped, looking at the monitors and making rapid notes on an electronic clipboard.  “Her blood pressure is up, and she’s upright, but she’s not awake.” “I didn’t say she was awake,” Stymak objected. Ignoring the argument, Goss rushed toward the bed and I followed...

Review: Possession by Kat Richardson

Review: Possession by Kat Richardson Possession Author: Kat Richardson Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: A-, 4 Stars What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una found this series not too long ago.  Sadly, we started it with the sixth book, Downpour.  Despite this, we immediately enjoyed the Greywalker series.  Although Gikany has been able to go back and start reading the previous books (starting with the first novel, Greywalker) Una has not been able to.  Therefore for this review, there are a few distinctions in it, but overall we thoroughly enjoyed it! Possession picks up a few months after Seawitch ended.  Harper is spending some free time in a bookshop when a very desperate woman...
