Review: Raging Sea by Terri Brisbin

Raging Sea Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Even though I loved William in the first novel (and still do), I feel that Raging Sea is better than the previous novel, Rising Fire for several reasons. First, the connection and journey of Ran and Soren were stronger, more complex, and […]

Review: Crucible Zero by Devon Monk

Crucible Zero Author: Devon Monk  Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una are a little sad that the House Immortal trilogy has come to an end.  We really loved the world and characters and although this novel wrapped up a little too quickly for our tastes, we still liked […]

Review: Breakout by Ann Aguirre

Breakout Author: Ann Aguirre Reviewer:  Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Breakout picks up right where Havoc left off, completing the Dred Chronicles.  The series should be read in order.  New readers of the trilogy will have the luxury of reading the series without the publication gaps the rest of us have experienced.  However, […]

Prince’s Gambit Author: C.S. Pacat Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: After finishing Captive Prince earlier this year, I was disappointed that the book was mislabeled as an m/m fantasy romance, but rather, it was the first book in a duo or trio that together is one story.

Review: Path of the Heretic by Ivan Amberlake

Path of the Heretic Author: Ivan Amberlake Reviewer: Una Rating: C What I’m Talking About: The Path of the Heretic is the second novel in the fascinating mythology of the Beholder series.  Though the mythology is intriguing, the story falls flat for me.
