Book Review ~ The Trouble with Ghosts by A.L. Kessler

Book Review ~ The Trouble with Ghosts by A.L. Kessler

The Trouble with Ghosts by A.L. Kessler is the 3rd book in her Here Witchy Witchy series. This series is a great read and The Trouble with Ghosts kept me up late and flipping serious pages. The Trouble with Ghosts is a great combination of mystery, magic and action. A mystery within mysteries had the hamster wheel turning and trying to figure out WHO DID WHAT? I try not to compare series to one another but Here Witchy Witchy does carry the feel of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, without all the whining and selfishness. Abby is strong and… Read more »

Book Review of One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

Book Review of One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews

One Fell Sweep is a free serial available at Ilona Andrews’ website http://www.ilona-andrews.com, then conveniently formatted in ebook form and published to the masses. Honestly, I am completely willing to scream TAKE MUH MONAH for it to be all nicely formatted and put on my kindle. I also really love the warm and fuzzies I get knowing that I supported an author that provides me an escape. Opening One Fell Sweep takes you to strange lands with wonderfully diverse characters. Slipping into One Fell Sweep is easy and feels like home. Every new book in this series makes me fall in love… Read more »

Book Review ~ Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Book Review ~ Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

  Silence Fallen is the 10th installment in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series. This is a series I have followed since the beginning and waaayyyy before this site ever existed. It is a series that I will continue to read, but the last few books are just missing the pizzazz that the beginning of the series held. Silence Fallen starts off exciting and the author takes us abroad, swiftly changing the tone and adding in new characters. I thought this new expedition would bring back some of the excitement, but I feel that the lack of of a new over-arching plot… Read more »

Release Day Review of Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks

Release Day Review of Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks

Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks is the 13th book in her World of the Lupi series. This series is still going strong and the world building is truly astonishing. Dragon Spawn is roller coaster ride of a read. This series is one of my favorites and I always start to get nervous when one of my favorite series is pushing over 10 publications. I start worrying about things like (because these things HAVE HAPPENED MANY TIMES): Q: Will the author lose her way? A: SHE DIDN’T   Q: Is the story going to start failing to hold the high standards… Read more »

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Audiobook Review – Staked by Kevin Hearne

Staked by Kevin Hearne is the eighth book in his Urban Fantasy series, the Iron Druid Chronicles. If you are a consumer of urban fantasy and have not picked up this series yet, SHAME ON YOU. Especially, if you are consuming audiobooks. Staked might be my favorite in this series and yet I cannot quite put my finger on why. Maybe it was the how the backstory has progressed and grown. Maybe it was simply the combination of humor and fantastic world building. Maybe it was the wide variety of characters that I have truly come to feel connected to…. Read more »
