White Hot

White Hot is the second book in Ilona Andrews’ Hidden Legacy trilogy. Just like Burn for Me, the first in the series, it’s a highly enjoyable story that features a fast-paced plot, a cast of extremely likable characters, and sizzling chemistry between the two leads. If you are a fan of urban fan ...

Silence Fallen

When Moon Called, the first book in Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series, came out in 2006, I was in a paranormal reading slump. The triumvirate of Anita, Richard, and Jean Claude was no more, and our favorite mercenary Kate Daniels had yet to make her mark on a futuristic Atlanta. Imagine my su ...

Magic Binds

When my children were small, we were Harry Potter fanatics.  We counted down the days until the next book was due to be released.  We attended midnight themed parties on that red letter day.  We had Harry Potter trivia contests in the car on long trips.  In other words, we were obsessed.  I fee ...

These small tidbits make the reading experience that much more enjoyable as we get more information about people and places we lov ...

While I'll admit to suffering from a bit of series fatigue, I do have a soft spot for unique-sounding urban fantasy and so I tried this one out of curiosity. While there was a critical piece o ...

Rising Darkness

Fans of Thea Harrison's Elder Races series will be surprised if they're expecting her new Game of Shadows series to be anywhere near similar. Rising Darkness, the first book in the new series, is, well, dark, y'all - emotionally affecting, creepy-delicious, D-A-R-K dark. It's also technically impecc ...

Master of Darkness

If you saw a book described as being about King Arthur, warlocks, sorcerers, and Avalon, what kind of book would you expect? Probably the same thing that I would and we would both be way off in the case of Master of Darkness. In the description it did say that there were werewolves ...

True Colors

By
In general, I hate novellas. The romance happens instantly, the plot is rushed, the story gets lost in the action. With Thea Harrison’s new eNovella, True Colors, all of this is still true. But for once, the plot is designed to fit well into space of a novella and so those things all work toget ...
