Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5) – Stacia Kane

Chasing Magic (Downside Ghosts #5) – Stacia Kane

Chasing Magic had me going: Oh my goodness! Chessiebomb – you are so damaged, and I can’t help but loving you anyway. Chess is always fighting her demons, and most of the time, she truly does do the right thing. She tries so hard to be good, but underneath it all is that lack of self-worth that has been instilled in her since she was only a little girl. Even just the hinting of what she has been through is really heavy stuff, and I hope that one day, she will feel worthy of the love she and Terrible shares. Terrible is terribly wonderful (heh, see what I did there?) he is always on Chess’ side, and even comes to […]

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Review: Infamous (Chronicles of Nick #3) – Sherrilyn Kenyon

Infamous was not as satisfying as I had hoped it would be when I started reading. It really felt like a filler book. There was not a lot of progress being made, Nick was younger than in the other instalments, and he was learning little by little what his powers were, or would become. Also, neither Nick or the readers know who he can trust, except for the obvious people, being his mom, Acheron and Kyrian. At the same time, knowing that Nick from the future is coming to give advice to young Nick in the book it is difficult to know exactly how the relationship between Ash and Nick will develop. I usually love it when someone is able […]

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 […]

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Finding Magic (Downside Ghosts # 0.5) – Stacia Kane

Before I started reading Finding Magic: I need something to keep me from going into withdrawal while I wait for the next Downside Ghosts novel! A few minutes after I finished reading Finding Magic : YAY this was an awesome novella, and I usually don’t even like shorter stories all that much. The only thing I’m a little confused about is Jillian… I thought she and Chess had never met before in a later book. I think a re-read is what I need right now 🙂 Chess is even more damaged than I thought she was, and I feel so sorry for her! It was great to see how she acted before she became a ‘real’ church-witch, and how her relationship […]
