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… 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… Read more »

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 »
