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 »

Book Review: No More Black Magic by A.L. Kessler

Book Review: No More Black Magic by A.L. Kessler

No More Black Magic is A.L. Kessler‘s first (published) step into the world of Urban Fantasy…and I like it! No, scratch that. I FUCKING LOVE IT.  Here Witchy Witchy?  Fuck yeah!   Kessler encompasses everything awesome about urban fantasy in this page turning new book. No More Black Magic is a great story all the way around .  A vivid world with authentic and intense characters.  Set in a great Urban Fantasy world with a profound female protagonist, there is really nothing that I didn’t like.  We are introduced to Abby and her interesting life. Abby has a great backstory that… 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 »

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

Audiobook Review: Burned by Karen Marie Moning

 I tried desperately NOT to put anything spoilerish in this review.  I am not perfect, but I did try. Burned by Karen Marie Moning is the seventh book in the Fevered series.  I have sung my love of this series for many many years and It is one of the few series I always think about rereading.  That being said, Burned just didn’t hold up to any expectations. I am not sure what just happened here.  I was left feeling disappointed, confused, and irritated.  World building holes were the potholes in my mind that would not allow me to enjoy the ride that should have… Read more »

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Audiobook Review Vacant by Alex Hughes

Disclaimer:  Vacant by Alex Hughes is the first book I have read in the Mindspace Investigation Series.  **Unintentional spoilers may be contained in this review. Vacant by Alex Hughes might have settled better with me, if I would have not listened to it.  However, that totally could go the other way.  Why am I not sure?  It is simple.  This is one of those “on the line” books for me.  It borders being good and not-so good.  When this happens,  I normally start thinking way too hard about where or what didn’t work for me. Too many loose ends untied left me… Read more »
