Book Review: House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter

Book Review: House of the Rising Sun by Kristen Painter

House of the Rising Sun is Kristen Painter’s first installment in her new Crescent City series.  House of the Rising Sun has a variety of  other-world beings.  Fae, vampires, and witches are everyday occurrences in this world – especially in the Haven city of New Orleans. I want to start by saying two things.  1) This is the first Kristen Painter book I have read.  (I know, I KNOW – what in the world is going on around here??) 2)… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin #4) by Jennifer Estep

Audiobook Review: Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin #4) by Jennifer Estep

Tangled Threads is the fourth installment in Jennifer Estep‘s Elemental Assassin series.  This series keeps up the pace flawlessly and I am running through these audiobooks faster than any series to date. I know I have said it before, but it really has been some time since I gobbled up a series like I have with the Elemental Assassin series.  I just don’t want to stop and love that each book is consistently wonderful.  In Tangled Threads Gin Blanco aka… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Venom (Elemental Assassin #3) by Jennifer Estep

Audiobook Review: Venom (Elemental Assassin #3) by Jennifer Estep

Jennifer Estep is keeping up the greatness in the third Elemental Assassin Series installment, Venom.   The Elemental Assassin series has some seriously addictive qualities and It has been quite some time since I have binge read (or listened to) a series with this much gusto! Gin Blanco continues to kill people that flat out need it and protecting those she is now claiming as hers.  Much of this has become a parallel to her need to avenge her family…. Read more »

Audiobook Review: Web of Lies (Elemental Assassin #2) by Jennifer Estep

Web of Lies is the second installment in Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series.  You can check out my review of the first book in the series, Spider’s Bite HERE.  Web of Lies continues the story of Gin Blanco aka The Spider.   She might have just retired, but will she lay down while others get hurt? Estep weaved not only a great story, but an ongoing fantastic back story for this series.  The Elemental Assassin series is one that I… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin #1) by Jennifer Estep

Audiobook Review: Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin #1) by Jennifer Estep

Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep is the first book in her Elemental Assassin Series.  This Urban Fantasy is nonstop literary entertainment!  The first chapter had me completely captivated by Gin and her world.  I am pretty sure my friends and family thought I was avoiding them, but I promise I was wrapped up in Spider’s Bite! Estep doesn’t hold back and sugar coat any aspect of Gin’s life.   There was no glamorization of what an assassin’s life would be… Read more »

Book Review:  Night Broken (Mercy Thompson #8) by Patricia Briggs

Book Review: Night Broken (Mercy Thompson #8) by Patricia Briggs

**This review assumes, and could possibly have spoilers if you have not read any of the other books in this series. Night Broken is Patricia Briggs‘ 8th book in her Mercy Thompson series.  Night Broken is a great addition to the series.  When Adam’s ex-wife appears we get a chance to see a different side of Mercy Thompson. Night Broken touched on Mercy’s adjustment into the pack, a pack where not everyone wants her or views her status within the… Read more »
