Review: One Funeral by Kat & Stone Bastion

Review: One Funeral by Kat & Stone Bastion One Funeral Author: Kat & Stone Bastion Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Devoured. That’s how I read One Funeral, the second title in Kat & Stone Bastion’s No Weddings series. This humorous, yet oh-so-serious series is already on my list of favorites, and I can’t wait for the next title, Two Bar Mitzvahs. I’m eager to see what happens between Hannah and Cade. First, if you haven’t read No Weddings, the first book in the No Weddings series, READ IT FIRST. There’s no option, really. Otherwise, a reader would be hopelessly lost. The backstory is quite important to the plot of book two, and while things...

Review: Midnight Everlasting by S.M. Stelmack

Review: Midnight Everlasting by S.M. Stelmack Midnight Everlasting Author: S.M. Stelmack Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: This dark urban fantasy, tinged with romance, immediately reminded me why I liked Undertow, the first title in The UnderCity Chronicles by husband-wife team, S.M. Stelmack. I still missed Jack, but was delighted to see Reggie make an appearance. The new main characters are engaging, and battling similar horrors as the first title described. With a LOT more at stake. Yup. Still pre-1992 Stephen King-esque. The creeptastic creatures crafted by the Stemacks are straight out of nightmares. No. Lie. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be giving manholes a wide berth for awhile, once again. And,...

She was used to hiding and being patient. She knew how to deal with the anxiety that came from the...

Review: No Weddings by Kat & Stone Bastion

Review: No Weddings by Kat & Stone Bastion No Weddings Author: Kat & Stone Bastion Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I’ve known about the No Weddings series for a while. I can’t believe it’s finally here, though! I was excited to read the newest by Kat Bastion, and her co-writer and otherwise duly noted partner in life, crime and fiction, Stone Bastion. And if I fan-girl a little bit during my review, forgive me ☺ This series is about the development of a relationship. A sturdy, solid, for-the-long-haul relationship. We don’t have insta-love here, folks. And we get book 1 of the series completely from Cade’s point-of-view. Male. Point-Of-View. I loved his narrative voice...

Quickie Review: The Curious Case of the Clockwork Menace by Bec McMaster

Quickie Review: The Curious Case of the Clockwork Menace by Bec McMaster The Curious Case of the Clockwork Menace Author: Bec McMaster Reviewer: Jen Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Curious Case of the Clockwork Menace is a wonderful whodunit mystery set in Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk world. It is listed as book 3.5, but story does go back 3 years in time. The book shares the story of one of Perry and Garrett’s cases, one of some significance that is mentioned in book #4, Forged by Desire. It can be read as a stand alone story, or in conjunction with Forged, and in fact, I didn’t ever read it until after I finished Forged by Desire. In the context...
