Lord of Legends

Growing up, I was never the kind of girl who daydreamed about rainbows and unicorns. Frankly, I never understood the fascination with unicorns. So when I chose to review a book about a cursed unicorn trapped in a man’s body – the king of unicorns, no less – I was prepared to read a story weigh ...

Comes the Night

Come the Night is the final book of Krinard’s new vampire/werewolf trilogy. Though a vampire and werewolf from a previous book show up to say hi, this book is really all about the wolves. It features Gillian Maitland and Ross Kavanaugh, who have been kept apart by the purebred fanaticism of Gill ...

Chasing Midnight

As I began my first vampire/werewolf romance, I was a little skeptical. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the setting, plot, and characters Susan Krinard creates in Chasing Midnight. Allie Chase was the belle of Long Island society until she was stricken with a debilitating illnes ...

Lord of the Beasts

Rarely have I disliked a heroine as much as Cordelia Hardcastle. Had this not been a review book, I would never have finished it, which I find depressing because Susan Krinard used to be one of my favorite authors. Sadly, I haven’t enjoyed many of her recent books for one reason or another, but ...

To Tame a Wolf

I'm a big fan of HBO's Deadwood. Make that a huge fan of HBO's Deadwood. So, not surprisingly considering my obsessed fan-dom, I'm on a quest these days to somehow get my hands on books set in the American West that are as gut-wrenchingly visceral as that incredible show and that evoke the same ra ...

Kinsman's Oath

Susan Krinard has again superbly demonstrated why she is one of my favorite authors. She has written a remarkable and complex universe, and a great romance too! This book absorbed and captivated me and I read most of it in one sitting. In Krinard's universe, mankind populated distant planets ( ...

To Catch a Wolf

To Catch a Wolf is the first of Susan Krinard's werewolf books that I've had a chance to read. If it's any indication of the rest of the series, I've missed out on some great books. Passionate, dramatic and very romantic, this is one terrific paranormal romance. Morgan Holt is a ...

The Forest Lord

The Forest Lord is a faerie paranormal that gets bogged down in its own melodrama. The book has an interesting premise, but most of the magic is lost in execution. Six years ago Eden Fleming was the victim of a cruel deception. Her father, caught hunting in the protected lands of H ...

Secret of the Wolf

Though this is the much-awaited next installment in two paranormal series by Susan Krinard, I had a hard time getting through it. Quentin is a uniquely dark hero with unusual demons to slay, but his character is just about the only thing you can look forward to in this slow-moving and clichéd story ...

Secret of the Wolf

Writing darker books can sometimes be a risk for an author. If she tackles a heavy subject with an equally heavy hand, the result can be a story that drags endlessly. On the other hand, if the author skims over a tough issue, the result may feel like a cop-out to the reader. Thankfully, Secret of th ...
