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… 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… 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… 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… Read more »

Book Review: Queen’s Menagerie by MK Mancos

Book Review: Queen’s Menagerie by MK Mancos

Queen’s Menagerie by MK Mancos is the first book in her Crown and Country series. I didn’t know anything about this book going in, with the exception that it was steampunk. It turned out to be a great paranormal romance with a wonderful amount of mystery! Mordecai Pope is the reverse Alpha-hole. He was smart, sexy and a joy to read about. His kindness for others and loving nature created a breath of fresh air in a swarm of Alphas… Read more »

Book Review: Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison

Book Review: Dragon Bound by Thea Harrison

In light of recent copyright infringements where author(s) took particular romance novels and re-purposed them into LGBT romances….I can see this book smoothly transition into a romance between two men.  Sadly, ever since that particular intellectual property theft case, every time I read a book now, I consider whether a book would still be good or better if it was gay romance. But seriously, I thoroughly enjoyed this book because there were secrets to discover and the story unfolds in… Read more »
