Edge of Oblivion

Edge of Oblivion is the second book in J.T. Geissinger’s Night Prowler series, which continues the story of the Ikati, a race of fierce shape-shifters. I read the introduction and the story sounded interesting. Then I actually read the first couple of chapters with its hokey cattle prod and Furian ...

Dragon's Moon

Despite loving to reread books, I have a strange quirk. If I start a series in the middle, I rarely go back and reread others from the series. Because of that, I put off reading Dragon’s Moon hoping for time to read the previous books first. I never found the time, so I had to jump into this serie ...

Gunmetal Magic

Fans of the Kate Daniels series have long been familiar with her fellow knight and best friend Andrea Nash. This is the first novel, though, that is told wholly from Andrea's point of view. I hope it won't be the last. Andrea is in a time of transition. She has been kicked out of the O ...

Tangle of Need

Communication, the experts tell us, is the key to a good relationship. Romance seems to run on bad communication - from the Big Mis to the straight out lies for their lover's good, our heroes and heroines rarely work out their communication problems before the end of the novel. I have no problem wit ...

Within the Flames

One advantage that romance series have over other genre series is that they can change up the characters. While the Harry Potter books require a deft writer who can show us both character growth and story progression, a romance author can introduce a new couple every novel and only minimally progres ...

Dragon Bound

Narrated by Sophie Eastlake To be honest, when I started Dragon Bound, I was a bit worried. As the first in the Elder Races series, there’d been such buzz about it for months – would it live up to expectations? I’m pleased to say it did, in spades! Ms. Harrison introduces a new world in the ...

Changeling Moon

When Zoey Tyler is attacked by a rogue wolf and rescued by a toothsome veterinarian, she has no idea that her life is going to change forever. In fact, both her attacker and her savior are werewolves, and Zoey is quickly drawn into their complex issues. These issues and a wonderful cast make Dani Ha ...

Heartless

Reviewing Paranormals, Fantasy, Steampunk, and, well, anything with a lot of world building is getting to be a somewhat dicey proposition. When I first started reviewing, there were a handful of authors that we insisted reviewers be completely up to date on before reviewing the latest. That number i ...

Kiss of Snow

Since the introduction of Hawke, leader of the SnowDancer wolf pack, and Sienna Lauren, a Cardinal X-Psy given sanctuary with the pack, readers have been anxiously awaiting their romance. The tenth book in the series (and Ms. Singh's first hardback) finally grants our wish. Kiss of Snow is a s ...

Master of Smoke

Anything can become too much if taken to excess - even chocolate and coffee. And we all know that glomming can sometimes backfire, turning the desire to read everything by a certain author to having to avoid her books for months. Mageverse feels a bit like that to me. Like she threw in everything ...
