Review: Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards

Review: Dog with a Bone by Hailey Edwards Dog with a Bone Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Hi. My name is VampBard, and I’m a Hailey Edwards addict. I think she has a way of writing fantasy sub-genres that just clicks with me. I was really excited to get the first title in her Black Dog series, Dog with a Bone. I knew it would be different from her Araneae Nation series (which I love), but I trusted my reader-author-crazy-psycho-bond to know that Ms. Edwards would bring it. And she did. Alright. I love Thierry. I almost see this series as a step beyond what was done in the Harry Potter...

Review: Eventide by Christine Allen-Riley

Review: Eventide by Christine Allen-Riley Eventide Author: Christine Allen-Riley Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: Eventide is the first book in a new young adult series that is quite promising. Gikany and Una enjoyed this slowly building story, becoming completely lost in the heroine’s plight. The story starts very slowly. We are gently introduced to Devon, the pain and grief she is battling after the loss of her best friend, and her understanding that all is not as it seems in her hometown. As the story begins to unfold, we, along with Devon, learn about the Sidhe who live and hunt in the town of Iron Falls. The tragic accidents...

Review: Two Bar Mitzvahs by Kat & Stone Bastion

Review: Two Bar Mitzvahs by Kat & Stone Bastion Two Bar Mitzvahs Author: Kat & Stone Bastion Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I think Mr. VampBard is going to confiscate my Kindle. I inhaled Two Bar Mitzvahs, and may be a smidge guilty of not really watching a show we were eagerly anticipating. Worth. It. The most poignant moments in the third book of the No Weddings series had me in tears. Since we’re back in Cade’s POV for this book, I was really happy to catch up with him again. I liked the conflict between Hannah and Cade in this book: the intensity of their emotions. The way it seemed as though Cade’s voice...

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow

Review: Through the Veil by Christi Snow Through the Veil Author: Christi Snow Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Through the Veil, the newest title and series by Christi Snow, begins with a fascinatingly horrific premise: Mother Earth, wounded for too long by the very beings she gave life to, was forced to take steps to protect herself. Everything west of the Mississippi River, and those who occupied it, seems to have been completely lost to the ocean. What’s left has been split in half by the sudden appearance of a deep gorge, and, 40 years later, an impenetrable wall of mist called the “Veil.” Even worse, most of those initial survivors mysteriously died...

Review: Caressed by Shadows by Amanda J. Greene

Review: Caressed by Shadows by Amanda J. Greene Caressed by Shadows Author: Amanda J. Greene Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B What I’m Talking About: The Rulers of Darkness series is one of my favorites. I stay up late reading them All. The. Time. And I must admit I have eagerly awaited Falcon and Sonya’s story. Theirs is a story of love that cannot be. They’ve longed for one another for centuries. Falcon to Sonya at the beginning, when Sonya says they can have one night – no one will know: “No. I refuse because one night wouldn’t be enough.” The huge problem is that Falcon would be beheaded and Sonya would be cast out. Not cool in the...
