Book Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Book Review: Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews

Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews is the 8th book in the Kate Daniels series. It is no secret this is a favorite series of mine, but if you are a follower of this blog you should know that I tend to expect the same kind of quality throughout the series that made me fall in love at day one. Magic Shifts not only lived up to my expectations, it surpassed them! The love, the laughter and the action. A recipe for pure AWESOME. **May contain some spoilers to previous titles, but I tried to keep it as spoiler-free as possible and… Read more »

Audiobook Review – Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

Audiobook Review – Discount Armageddon by Seanan McGuire

  Discount Armageddon is the first book in Seanan McGuire’s InCryptid series. With a lot of worldbuilding and characters lining the pages this book was a “down the middle” for me. I had been eyeballing this book for quite some time. Honestly, the cover itself invoked the same kind of mixed reaction that reading the book invoked. Kind of a mixture of WOW and SAY WHAT? Verity was a great strong female lead, but I felt the focus on her body image was a bit over the top. Maybe it was because I understand the rules of the ballroom dancing that… Read more »

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

Audiobook Review: The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels

The Engineer Wizard by Glenn Michaels is the first book in The Genie and the Wizard series.  This is a DNF review. After a very strenuous attempt to listen and make it though, I got to about the 1/2 way mark before deciding I just needed to move on. It has been a very long time since I have posted a DNF review. Making it just short of the half-way mark before throwing the towel in is a big deal for me and I feel I need to speak my mind about my thoughts.  After all ….  that is kind… Read more »

Book Review: Siren’s Call by Jayne Castle

Book Review: Siren’s Call by Jayne Castle

Siren’s Call is Jayne Castle‘s fourth book in her Rainshadow series. Set in a fascinating world, Siren’s Call pulled me in and didn’t let me go! Siren’s Call is actually the first book I have read by this author and I was more than pleasantly surprised. Set in a unique world where aliens are no longer present, but their mark remains sets an intriguing setting for this story. With fascinating imagery being alluring in its own right, it is not the only strong aspect in this book. Outside the brilliant world building are equally enjoyable characters. Ella’s personality and secretive lifestyle… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Audiobook Review: Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older

Half-Resurrection Blues by Daniel José Older is the first book in his Bone Street Rumba series.  This Urban Fantasy was full of grit and soul and an absolute pleasure to listen to! I snatched up this offer on a whim after looking at the other audiobook options.  An author I have never heard of, that is narrating his own book?  Intrigue won the internal debate, but I am going to admit that I was skeptical and a bit pre-judgmental that it was going to be a flop.  I mean, Mr. Older DID HIS OWN NARRATION.  This is something that doesn’t… Read more »
