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 »

Book Review: Clean Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #1) by Ilona Andrews

Book Review: Clean Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles #1) by Ilona Andrews

Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews is the first installment in their Innkeeper Chronicles series.  Clean Sweep takes place in a new world that touches on the border of Sci-fi.  With alien worlds and other planets these new characters come to life with a broom …..er…I mean BOOM! Clean Sweep follows the young new Innkeeper, Dina Demille, in her adventure to protect her Inn and its residence.  In Dina’s world the Inn is almost a sentient being.  It is able to build and protect its self.  I loved this concept!  With multiple Alphas in Dina’s life,  Andrews creates a spectrum of… Read more »

Book Review: Realm Walker by Kathleen Collins

Book Review: Realm Walker by Kathleen Collins

Realm Walker by Kathleen Collins is a fast past Urban Fantasy.  A lot was happening in Realm Walker at every turn of the page.  As with many series starters many world rules and creatures are introduced during a short period of time.  Everything from Vampires, Trolls, Demons, Werewolves, and Fae and Collins injects you into this world swiftly and furiously, yet with a surprising amount of finesse. Juliana’s story in Realm Walker is a unique story that pulled me in from the beginning.  I loved the untypical love story between Juliana and  Thomas Kendrick.  This was not your typical swoon… Read more »
