ARC Review – Blade Song by JC Daniels

When Blade Song by JC Daniels was first released, I was surprised to see so many mixed reviews on some of my favorite blogs.  Some people absolutely loved it while others absolutely hated it.  Many of the negative reviews called Blade Song derivative of the Kate Daniels series while others… Read more »

ARC Review & Giveaway – Nightlife by Matthew Quinn Martin

ARC Review & Giveaway – Nightlife by Matthew Quinn Martin

Nightlife is a creepy new horror novel by author Matthew Quinn Martin.  There’s a lot to recommend about this book, particularly the strong lead characters and Martin’s unsettling take on vampires.  However, there were some issues I had with secondary characters and multiple POVs that kept Nightlife from really shining… Read more »

ARC Review – Mist by Susan Krinard

ARC Review – Mist by Susan Krinard

Mist by Susan Krinard is one of those books I wanted to like more than I actually did.  On the surface it checks a lot of my book love boxes:  Kickass heroine?  Check!  Good vs Evil and the Fate of the world held in the balance?  Check!  Gods and goddesses… Read more »

Mini-(ARC) Review Monday:  Waterfall by Lacy Danes

Mini-(ARC) Review Monday: Waterfall by Lacy Danes

    I really loved the cover of Waterfall by Lacy Danes.  Honestly, I think that’s what drew me in at first.  And then there were the dragons.  I don’t read very many books with dragons so I was excited to get a taste of that sub-genre of PNR.  All… Read more »

ARC Review & Giveaway – My Lady Quicksilver by Bec McMaster

Dear Bec,  You owe me sleep.  You see, I’ve read each book in your London Steampunk series and each one has resulted in late nights with the Kindle, feverishly reading “just one more chapter,” only to realize that one more chapter has resulted in hours of missed sleep.  I can’t… Read more »

ARC Review – Heart of Iron by Bec McMaster

ARC Review – Heart of Iron by Bec McMaster

I’m in love with Bec McMaster’s series, London Steampunk.  It has politics, intrigue, danger, romance…it’s delicious.  After devouring the first book in the series, Kiss of Steel, which focused on Blade, a rogue blue blood (or vampire as we know them) and Honoria, I was excited to learn that this… Read more »

ARC Review – Cold Blooded by Amanda Carlson

ARC Review – Cold Blooded by Amanda Carlson

Cold Blooded was definitely a monumental installment to the Jessica McClain series.  We have revelations, we have action, we have sexy times, and we have Jessica and her wolf kicking some major ass.  And while the action saturated plotline could sometimes become overwhelming, the pure fun and adventure of this… Read more »

Mini-(ARC) Review Monday: I Kissed a Dog by Carol Van Atta

    I actually read this book at the beginning of the year.  As I was going through some old notes on books read but not reviewed, I thought I would use this for an edition of Mini-Review Monday. On paper, this is totally my book. I love werewolves. I… Read more »
