Book Review: The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

Book Review: The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison is the 12th book in The Hollows series.  If you ask me, I think it might be the best installment yet!  My favorite witch/day-walking demon is trying hard to stay out of trouble, but when you are Rachel Morgan that is a hard mission to accomplish. All of the cast is back in action and character growth is vibrant, making  The Undead Pool the best book YET of The Hallows series.  Although I love… Read more »

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Book Review: Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling #12) by Nalini Singh

Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh is the 12th book in her Psy-Changeling series and was…er..WOW!!   Heart of Obsidian follows Kaleb, a Psy.  The depth and emotions in Heart of Obsidian were intense and unforgettable.   Although the Psy are a race that has imposed Silence, a form of complete emotional absence, the amount of emotions contained in Heart of Obsidian is amazing.  Kaleb’s character is dark and complex.  His history and background was as dark as night, yet… Read more »

Book Review: Night Owls (Night Owls #1) by Lauren M. Roy

I have to start with how much I enjoyed Night Owls by Lauren M. Roy. How can you go wrong with a Vampire that owns a book store? I mean really?  Retired hunter Valerie runs a college book store in a normally quiet small town. That is until Creeps or Jackals start coming to town, and well everyone else. A page turner with several creatures of the night racing to uncover the mysteries of the book Elly from the brotherhood… Read more »
