Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Wolfsbane, the second installment in Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series, will have you snarling for the next book. I grew to love Calla even more, enjoyed learning about the Searchers and their history, and found myself rooting for Ren over Shay. We find Calla just where we left her: captured by the Searchers, the worst enemy … Continue reading

Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

A review of Shade

I blew through this book! The fast (if somewhat predictable) plot, interesting mythology, and spunky characters ensure that I’ll be reading the next book in this series. Aura Salvatore is just your average Post-Shift high school student. She wears red so the ghosts don’t bother her during the day, changes to something professional to complete … Continue reading

Bone Dressing by Michelle Brooks

Bone Dressng was one of the worst books I’ve tried to read in a long time. It’s basically narrated by the most annoying teen in the world, Sydney Roberdeau. In real life, I’m pretty sure Syd would be be an up-talker. Now, I didn’t finish this book. I got roughly half way through it and … Continue reading

Camille by Tess Oliver

V

Camille and Dr. Bennett are scientists looking for a cure…to lycanthropy. The concept and the setting for Tess Oliver’s Camille are fun at first, but half way through this book takes a turn towards mushiness. When the moon is full, Camille and Dr. Bennett walk the streets of London, searching for rogue werewolves. They hunt … Continue reading

Spider’s Bite (Elemental Assassin, Book 1) by Jennifer Estep

SpiderWebSpidersBite

An unbeatable assassin, a sexy cop, and a bitch of an enemy: Spider’s Bite, the first book in the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep, has a fun plot and a cast of intense characters, but the writing issues and the unbelievability of the main character’s emotions often got in the way of the pacing. … Continue reading

Double Cross by Carolyn Crane

shelby and justine

“Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.” And this is what Justine Jones, hypochrandriac and professional dissolusionist, intends to do in Double Cross by Carolyn Crane. The plot is twisting, the characters surprising, and the ending fantastic. Justine Jones has finally … Continue reading

Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews

The latest novel in Ilona Andrews‘ the Edge series is swamped with action, romance, and plot twists galore. But the characters and setting just don’t measure up to the first book in the series. William the Wolf is on a mission. He’s been instructed by the Mirror (Adrianglia’s secret service) to hunt down and destroy … Continue reading

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

The excellent writing, fabulous world-building, and deep side characters make up for the insecure and often whiny protagonist in Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Angel. The end of the book gives us a glimmer of hope that Tessa could someday be the heroine we’ve been waiting for. After the sudden death of her Aunt Harriet, Tessa leaves … Continue reading

Phil Gigante and his Harem

The only reason Bonnie Fox even picked up the series is because her good friend, Phil Gigante, encouraged her to do so. Gigante narrates all of Karen Marie Moning’s audio books, and found the Fever series very interesting. So Fox picks up the audio edition of the books and falls in love. She’s not a … Continue reading
