Book Review: The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

Book Review: The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison

The Undead Pool by Kim Harrison is the 12th book in The Hollows series.  If you ask me, I think it might be the best installment yet!  My favorite witch/day-walking demon is trying hard to stay out of trouble, but when you are Rachel Morgan that is a hard mission to accomplish. All of the cast is back in action and character growth is vibrant, making  The Undead Pool the best book YET of The Hallows series.  Although I love this series, Rachel was never a favorite.  This has all changed.  Her acceptance of who she is has come to… Read more »

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Book Review: Wildfire by Mina Khan

Wildfire by Mina Khan is a nontraditional type of paranormal.  With dragon shifters and cowboys set in Texas…how could one go wrong? Wildfire is a great example of what I love about self-published books.  It keeps that nontraditional and free spirited edge to every page.  I think the author nails it by calling it “a paranormal mystery with romantic elements. It is not a traditional romance.”   Although it certainly did have some romantic elements, I would certainly not define it as romance either.  It had a slight Urban Fantasy feel with the mystery background and character development. Lynn is… Read more »

Book Review: Night Owls (Night Owls #1) by Lauren M. Roy

Book Review: Night Owls (Night Owls #1) by Lauren M. Roy

I have to start with how much I enjoyed Night Owls by Lauren M. Roy. How can you go wrong with a Vampire that owns a book store? I mean really?  Retired hunter Valerie runs a college book store in a normally quiet small town. That is until Creeps or Jackals start coming to town, and well everyone else. A page turner with several creatures of the night racing to uncover the mysteries of the book Elly from the brotherhood has brought into their mist.   No one is safe and most of all who can you trust? The characters seemed… Read more »

Book Review: Blood from a Silver Cross by E.S. Moore

Book Review: Blood from a Silver Cross by E.S. Moore

Blood from a Silver Cross by E. S. Moore was a gritty, leather smelling peek into Lady Death’s paradox of a life. To be honest this was my first Kat Redding novel and I am sure will not be my last.  A truly unique look at the dark side of vampires and weres and their following. Kat, Lady Death, has to learn the basics of having relationships with others. Trust, something she has never given anyone, is a huge issue with Ethan and Jeremy her roommates. How do you trust someone with information and at the same time protect them?… Read more »

Book Review: Gunmetal Magic (Kate Daniels #5.5) by Ilona Andrews

Book Review: Gunmetal Magic (Kate Daniels #5.5) by Ilona Andrews

Gunmetal Magic is the next installment of the Kate Daniels series and is from Andrea’s POV.  This is untypical of this series as all previous books have been from Kate’s POV. It took me a little while to hear Andrea’s voice and not Kate’s.  This is a favorite series of mine and Kate has always been such an unforgettable character.  Yet, Andrea did find her own voice and rhythm.  Once the gears were switched I loved the amazing story that unfolded.  Andrea has such history and it was nice to have so much depth added to a secondary character.  Her… Read more »

Book Review: Born in Blood (The Sentinels #1) by Alexandra Ivy

Book Review: Born in Blood (The Sentinels #1) by Alexandra Ivy

Born in Blood by Alexandra Ivy is the first installment in her new series, The Sentinels.  In this new darker world the characters felt more extreme and the world building more complex, it was a great surprise! Duncan and Callie have chemistry right from the first scene and I enjoyed the less traditional type of Alpha characters. A divorced sergeant, Duncan knew what he wanted and didn’t let up.  His personality was rough and in your face, I liked him . 😉  This clash of personalities took place in a very unique world with a bit of a sci-fi feel… Read more »
