Book Review of Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Book Review of Allegiance of Honor by Nalini Singh

Allegiance of Honor is Nalini Singh’s 15th book in her Psy-Changeling series. This series is one of my favorites and one that is always worth a re-read. Allegiance of Honor made my inner fan girl squeal and roll around with delight. Allegiance of Honor truly was a unique installment into the Psy-Changeline series. Historically each book has been over one couple with an ongoing backstory that carries over into each. Allegiance of Honor was like taking a stroll through the currently Psy-Changeling world and getting to made periodic stops to gather inside information on a variety of established characters. It was… 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 »

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Staked by Kevin Hearne is the eighth book in his Urban Fantasy series, the Iron Druid Chronicles. If you are a consumer of urban fantasy and have not picked up this series yet, SHAME ON YOU. Especially, if you are consuming audiobooks. Staked might be my favorite in this series and yet I cannot quite put my finger on why. Maybe it was the how the backstory has progressed and grown. Maybe it was simply the combination of humor and fantastic world building. Maybe it was the wide variety of characters that I have truly come to feel connected to…. Read more »

Horror Book Review: Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland

Horror Book Review: Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland

    Congenital Defects by A.D. Roland is a full out horror that brings you in, traumatizes you and then haunts not only your nightmares but your day dreams as well. In other words…it does everything a horror book should do. Congenital Defects is NOT for the faint at heart. If you are the type of reader that searches blurbs and book information for trigger warnings, then this book is probably one you want to pass up. It pushes boundaries and social stigmas right off a fucking cliff, especially if you are the estrogen filled variety of human. A.D. Roland… Read more »

Book Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Book Review: Fire Touched (Mercy Thompson #9) by Patricia Briggs

Fire Touched is the 9th book in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson Series. I have been a long time reader of this series and Mercy is a character that always seems to come alive. Fire Touched was much more action filled than many of the previous books in the Mercy Thompson series and moved at a quick and steady pace, but I just kept thinking WTF? Fire Touched just did not seem to keep true to who I always felt Mercy was and IS. Character growth in Urban Fantasy is something that this genre does phenomenally well and yet I just… Read more »

Book Review: Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews

Book Review: Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews

  Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews is the second book in their Innkeeper Chronicles series. (Ilona Andrews is a pseudonym for this husband-wife team) The Innkeeper Chronicles easily falls into more of a Science Fiction hole than Urban Fantasy and I like it! Although the science fiction is not an overbearing part of the story, they are very much dealing with alien beings vs supernatural ones. Dina DeMille is still the InnKeeper at her Bed and Breakfast in Texas and as expected..this is NOT an ordinary B&B. Simply put, the house is its own entity. The amount of emotions… Read more »
