Book Review ~ Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Book Review ~ Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

  Silence Fallen is the 10th installment in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. This is a series I have followed since the beginning and waaayyyy before this site ever existed. It is a series that I will continue to read, but the last few books are just missing the pizzazz that the beginning of the series held. Silence Fallen starts off exciting and the author takes us abroad, swiftly changing the tone and adding in new characters. I thought this new expedition would bring back some of the excitement, but I feel that the lack of of a new over-arching plot… Read more »

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Book Review: Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia

Chelsea Avenue by Armand Rosamilia is thriller with some paranormal roots. Focused on a certain location with a mighty entity, who happened to have some serious sibling rivalry issues, Rosamilia takes you on a unique journey into the dark side. Chelsea Avenue is an entertaining read. I love horror and thrillers, especially when a paranormal aspect is mingled in. The point-of-views bounced around to different characters, all of whom survived a building fire at the club Murphy’s Law  in 1987. Rosamilia does a great job tying everything together and the ending was a lot of fun and pleasantly disturbing. The only… Read more »

Book Review: A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and a New Job by CC Dragon

Book Review: A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and a New Job by CC Dragon

A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job is the first book in C.C. Dragon‘s Deanna Oscar Paranormal Mystery series. This paranormal mystery read like a cozy and was an overall fun read. A Mansion, A Drag Queen, and A New Job started out a bit slow, but picked up into a nice and enjoyable read. Deanna Oscar was a lovable character that always seemed to remain true to herself, if a bit confused about what exactly that meant at times. With a fantastic cast of secondary characters always mixing things up it was a great introduction into the… Read more »

Book Review A Tale of Two Djinns by Mina Khan

Book Review A Tale of Two Djinns by Mina Khan

A Tale of Two Djinns by Mina Khan is a sexy and fun novella.  Full of fascinating landscapes and original ideas! The flow of the story paired with a beautiful uniqueness made for a pleasant and entertaining read.  This novella is a story about two Djinns from opposing Djinn clans.  After an interesting night and more surprising morning, the shenanigans really begin.  Maya and Akshay are each very well developed characters full of personality and individuality.  I didn’t enjoy Maya’s inability to be honest.  For me it is always a challenge to understand where the character is coming from and why… Read more »

Book Review: The Darkest Touch by Gena Showalter

Book Review: The Darkest Touch by Gena Showalter

Disclaimer:  I am completely guilty of not reading any of the previous books in the Lords of the Underworld series.  This review could have unintentional spoilers of previous titles in the series. I am of two minds about The Darkest Touch.  Both sides of me really, and I mean REALLY, loved the Red Queen.  She is nuts and a total egomaniac.  Still loved her character.   There was a sort of charisma about her character that just appealed to me.  I am sure this says something about me so judge away.   The story about her and Torin is well written and the… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Snow Queen by Michael Cunningham

Audiobook Review: The Snow Queen by Michael Cunningham

  I found the The Snow Queen a precariously balanced novel that shows a short glimpse into the lives of two brothers Barret and Tyler. We first meet Barret as he walks along the park at night and sees a vision of light that could be almost be compared to a spiritual experience or possibly an awaking within. He holds this nugget to himself and withholds it from his brother Tyler. Later this almost seems to be the wedge what pushes the two from one to two separate paths later in life. I sometimes found Barret’s thoughts convoluted to the… Read more »
