Review: Fury’s Kiss (Dorina Basarb #3) – Karen Chance

Review: Fury’s Kiss (Dorina Basarb #3) – Karen Chance

Fury’s Kiss is the third book in the Dorina Basarb series, and I have to say I’m very happy Dorina is back! She is one of those strong heroines, who can fight with the best of them, but who is still vulnerable enough to hug her best friend and be coddled when she’s feeling sad about something. She is also a no-nonsense woman, she knows what she wants, what she doesn’t want – and does her best to get her way – no matter who she’s up against.   Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Review: Wild About You (Love at Stake #13) – Kerrelyn Sparks

Review: Wild About You (Love at Stake #13) – Kerrelyn Sparks

*I received a free ARC of Wild About You from Avonbooks / Harper Voyager via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review.* Love at Stake is my favorite series, and Wild About You lived up to my expectations. The mystery that went on from Wanted Undead or Alive was well done, and I was a happy reader indeed.

Review: Twist (Mageri #2) – Dannika Dark

Review: Twist (Mageri #2) – Dannika Dark

Twist picks up shortly after the end of the story in Sterling (Mageri#1). Silver is still the wonderful and strong female protagonist I loved in book one, and she continues to learn how to take care of herself, fight, and use her new powers under Justus’ guard. She also continues to be strong-minded and fiercely loyal to those she feels close to. The scenes with Silver and Simon in them are simply hilarious! He is a riot, and I love the way he has game nights with Silver twice per week, both to get her out of Justus’ underground house, and to keep himself entertained.

Review: Wanted: Undead or Alive (Love at Stake #12) – Kerrelyn Sparks

Review: Wanted: Undead or Alive (Love at Stake #12) – Kerrelyn Sparks

Wanted: Undead or alive left me with a first impressionl, I, who often don’t even notice covers, have to just mention this cover. That guy on the cover just can’t be Dr. Phang! Dr. Phang is black – that guy over there is definitely not black. I don’t understand why someone else is on the cover of Phang’s book. There, now that’s off my chest. Wanted: Undead or Alive was quite slow in comparison to the other books in this series, but the relationship budding between Phinneas and Brynley was well suited to go slow. And it permitted the readers to really get to know both of them a lot better, and to understand their hang-ups and their defensive mechanisms. […]

Time Untime (Dark Hunter #22) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Time Untime (Dark Hunter #22) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Time Untime – book 22 in one of my favorite series was quite different from the rest of the books in some ways, and very similar in others. The biggest difference for me was that I didn’t really love Ren all that much 🙁 I get that his extremely long life has been difficult, and that he has never known love, but the self-loathing was really hard to read about, and made it less enjoyable to read than I would have liked.  I totally loved Kateri, though, and both Ash and Nick showed up to save the day, and I love both of them as well, so there were lots of things to like in this instalment, even if there […]

Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires #6) – Chloe Neill

Biting Cold (Chicagoland Vampires #6) – Chloe Neill

This review contains spoilers from books 4 and 5 in the series, so if you haven’t read those yet, you should probably stop reading right now… Biting Cold is about redemption. For Mallory, for Ethan, for Merit and for Seth. I had a little trouble getting into the world of Chicagoland again, after having been quite disappointed with the two prior books. I was devastated at the end of book 4, when Ethan died. And I was not happy with the way he was brought back from the dead at the end of book 5. Biting Cold started with Ethan and Merit chasing after the Maleficius, and a fight with Seth on the way to were it was hidden. The […]

Review: The Shifting Price of Prey (Spellcrackers.com #4) – Suzanne McLeod

Review: The Shifting Price of Prey (Spellcrackers.com #4) – Suzanne McLeod

*I received a free ARC from the author in exchange of an honest review of this book* The Shifting Price of Prey picked up a few months after the end of The Bitter Seed of Magic, and Genny is herself – business as usual. There is a lot of humor in this book, and I love the laugh-out-loud moments it helped me have 🙂 even if it’s sometimes a little weird trying to explain to people why I’m laughing when I’m sitting with my kindle… Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Review: Shadow Bound (Unbound #2) – Rachel Vincent

Review: Shadow Bound (Unbound #2) – Rachel Vincent

Shadow Bound really built on the Blood Bound’s story, and the character development Kori went through was quite amazing. Of course, she was only a side character in the first book, and here, she was the heroine, but it was still easy to see how she changed, and how she became completely willing to fight for what she thought was right.   Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Sterling (Mageri #1) – Dannika Dark

Sterling (Mageri #1) – Dannika Dark

Sterling was an amazing read! Extremely well written, a completely new world that made sense little by little, and intriguing and very likeable characters! Zoë was a normal 29-year-old until one night she decided to take a short-cut home, where she was attacked and thought she died. She woke up in a body bag – completely panicked, after getting out of the bag and the ambulance, she ran like the devil was after her, until Adam found her. Adam and Zoë formed a tentative friendship, although she woke up looking completely different from what she looked before. There was also a whole lot of great humour, I laughed so hard in many places, I need to go through my status […]

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) – Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need left me in a tangle of confusion! I am not completely sure how I feel about this instalment.  It took me several days to read, which is not usual for me, and I felt less connected with the characters as well.  The story was really filler material, nothing really important happened, there was no huge show-down between the changelings and their enemies, and the great love story of Riaz and Adria didn’t hit me in the gut like most of the other couples have. I thought that both Riaz and Adria seemed pretty shallow and juvenile, which is strange when you think about what their position in the pack is.   I think my main criticism is […]
