Review: Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett

Review: Cursed by Fire by Danielle Annett Cursed by Fire Author: Danielle Annett Reviewer: Una Rating: C- What I’m Talking About: I am not sure what to say.  After reading Cursed By Fire, I wonder how a first novel in a series can feel like a transitional novel.  The story had promise but just did not deliver for me. My first trouble with Cursed by Fire is that the mythology is very vague.  Some first novels suffer from an overabundance of world-building – spending a lot of time teaching us what the world is like at the sacrifice of the story.  However we have the opposite problem here.  There is almost no world-building.  What little there...

Joint Review: Into the Aether by PJ Schnyder

Joint Review: Into the Aether by PJ Schnyder Into the Aether Author: PJ Schnyder Reviewer: Una + Jen Twimom Rating: A and B+ What We’re Talking About: Today Una and Jen are here to talk about a new steampunk anthology from one of our favorite authors, PJ Schnyder. Which was your favorite story in the anthology and why? Una: Tough question since I enjoyed all three stories. I think I would have to pick Keeping Cadence (though it is a close race between it and Swan in Siam) since it was the most complete story, and I loved the happy romantic ending. Plus, I really enjoyed Cadence and was surprised by the twists in the story. Though...

Review: Kiss Across Deserts by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Review: Kiss Across Deserts by Tracy Cooper-Posey Kiss Across Deserts Author: Tracy Cooper-Posey Reviewer: VampBard Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I have been eagerly awaiting more about Veris, Brody, and Taylor. While Kiss Across Deserts isn’t about them, per se, they do appear in a pretty significant way. What’s great about this book, however, is the way relationships build and characters are revealed. I fell instantly in love with Sydney—she’s a strong, kick-ass woman working in a man’s world—as well as Alex and Rafe. I mean, who WOULDN’T fall for all their alpha male vampireness?!?! I haven’t been reading a lot of paranormal romance lately. I love the genre, but I just…haven’t. I suppose we...

Warm, solid, and smelling faintly of dish soap. Dish soap? My eyes snap open as a hand brushes over my arm. “Declan?” The hand on my arm stills. “Yeah.” Oh. His chest rumbles under my ear, his sleep-rasped voice with that lovely lilt slinking under my skin. Tilting my head back, I meet his gaze. Sleepy, yes, edged with discomfort. His arm. He’s got me pressed to his...

Review: Sanguine Mountain by Jennifer Foxcroft

Review: Sanguine Mountain by Jennifer Foxcroft Sanguine Mountain Author: Jennifer Foxcroft Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Sanguine Mountain’s title suggests a story of vampires and blood.  There is blood, although very little, and there are vampire—bats.  Neither Lestat nor Edward Cullen are sneaking in anyone’s windows.  The only creatures of the night in this tale are actual bats.  In a new take on the vampire myth, this is a much more Wild Kingdom approach to a teen love story. Rockland or “Rocks” is descended from a centuries old culture called the Camazotz that was magically transformed into bats to evade and conquer their enemies.  They have shunned the advances of the world...
