The Demon You Know

While The Demon You Know had some plot problems, it moved along quickly and ended up as a mostly enjoyable read. I haven’t read all the books in this series, but the author does a decent job of explaining the characters and there isn’t much world building to catch up on. Abby Baker is an aver ...

Lover Revealed

When I pick up a Black Dagger Brotherhood book, I know that within minutes I will be completely immersed in a gripping tale that leaves me not caring a bit if I’m reading about a male-dominated world where tormented vampire warriors have ridiculous names, use extreme slang, and that their leather- ...

She's No Faerie Princess

I have a soft spot for fairy tales. I guess I’ve been a sucker for them since I was a kid being tucked in at night with a couple of Grimm’s classics for bedtime fare. So, combining fairy tales and steamy romance is always a winner in my book. And, as the title implies, She’s No Faerie Princ ...

Eye of Heaven

It's always a treat when a series doesn't disappoint. Progressively, this series has just gotten better and better. Liu has created a world with strong and interesting heroes and heroines. I can’t wait to read more! The Dirk & Steele Agency is much more than a detective agency, a ...

The Red Heart of Jade

If you’re looking for an easy read, a book you can speed through on cruise-control, something you can put down or pick up at will, you should probably skip Marjorie M. Liu’s The Red Heart of Jade. If, however, you’re looking for an engagement, something to really sink your teeth into, then thi ...

The Saint

Is that you, Santy Claus? No, it sure isn't. Forget everything you know about Santa Claus because I have news for you, he sure isn't a right jolly old elf. Try immortal, gorgeous and fey instead - a death fey to be exact. For those that haven't read the previous books in Melanie Jackson's lutin (gob ...

Lover Eternal

I’ve been on an Urban Fantasy/paranormal kick lately so I was happy to read the new one by Ms. Ward for review. I read her first in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series when it came out, and though it wasn’t a DIK, I did enjoy it enough to be looking forward to the second - in spite of a few quir ...

Seduced by Crimson

Reading this series has been an interesting experience. I’m never quite sure what the next book will bring to Crimson City. Although I liked the basic elements of this, the fifth book in the series, I disliked the heroine. Also, the combination of bleeding and sex just doesn’t do it for me. ...

Through a Crimson Veil

Through a Crimson Veil is the third installment in the Crimson City series. Instead of involving werewolves or vampires, this introduces readers to the demon realm, Orcus. With the uneasy truce between humans, werewolves and vampires, adding demons into the mix could shift the balance and cause an ...

Shadow Touch

Marjorie M. Liu made quite a splash with her 2005 debut Tiger Eye. I have to admit that while I liked the first few chapters well enough, the story didn't grab me enough to make me pick it up again after I set it down and I never finished it. Shadow Touch, the second book in the series, sounded so t ...
