Review – Spectyr by Philippa Ballantine

Once again, Ballantine delivers with an exciting sequel to her Book of the Order series. First off, this swashbuckling sequel dives right into the story instead of introducing everything (as was the case with Geist). I was really glad since that was the main flaw of the first book, in my opinion. Instead, all of the background information I wanted […]

Review – Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill

Now that is what I call an urban fantasy. I’ve been on a bit of a paranormal kick lately and decided to give this series a try. First I’ve read of the author but it certainly won’t be my last. The writing reminded me a lot of Richelle Mead, whose books I absolutely adore, so definitely brownie points there. Plus, […]

Review – Blood Promise by Richelle Mead

The only reason I was able to stand the ending of Shadow Kiss was because I had Blood Promise to pick up right after. Rose is off on her own this time around and the world of Vampire Academy is about to get a whole lot bigger. Her drive to seek Dimitri out is relentless as she hunts the creatures that go bump […]

Review – Geist by Philippa Ballantine

I don’t even know what to say about Geist. The first time I read it (yes, I did reread it), I thought there wasn’t enough background–plenty of action and adventure, but not enough supporting details. When I read it again, while yes, I knew what would happen, I realized how seamlessly Ballantine weaves in her world with the story. You […]

Review – Witch Song by Amber Argyle

From the beginning: Right off the bat, the story held my attention. Argyle’s world was fresh and intriguing, changing the idea of “witches” in fiction. And yet, the story held to the basic coming-of-age story with the young adult defeating the bad guy (or woman in this case) without wandering into the realm of cliche. A truly refreshing take. Couldn’t […]

Review – Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Well, how about those characters?: I liked the characters a lot. But there were a few personality traits that I just didn’t like at all. Patch was very stalkerish and creepy. I didn’t mind it too much but there were occasions that it came through a little too strong. Nora, on the other hand, just annoyed me at times. She […]

Review – Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead

If a book was every going to break my heart, it’s this one. I don’t cry when I read, nor when I watch movies, but I was tearing up at the end of Shadow Kiss. This book is everything I ever wanted and then suddenly it tore my heart into itty bitty pieces. I think if I hadn’t known there would be […]
