Burn for Me - Hidden Legacy, #1

Don't let the fact that this is advertised as a romance novel fool you. Romance is not at the forefront of the novel, but it does take up some space. I am a huge fan of the author team of Ilona Andrews, and I devour everything they produce....

Stolen - Heart of Dread, #2

Stolen started out really well. It has a fast paced start and it was going very well. But, somewhere along the way it got lost. The story took a turn for the worst and just started to drag. I really loved the story. It made me think about t...

Pushed - Sense Thieves

OMG this book was so good! I really wish I would have had book one. I will definitely be grabbing it now! And although I was a little lost to start, I was quickly caught up with the story so far. Remy was a great character! She is well roun...

The Mage Sister

The author, Jeanne Bradford, did a great job of describing the events and places in the story. I really liked the concept of mage brides and girls having this magic and then a man magic being connected to her. I really liked how I was inves...

Mirror Sight - Green Rider, #5

This is an impressive addition to a compelling fantasy series that explores what parameters of progress improve society. Those who are familiar with the series should be aware that this is more a dystopian tale than the straight fantasy tha...

Solaris Rising 3 - The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction

When picking up an anthology to read, I never know what to expect. I do know there are stories that fall under a theme or fit into a genre, but I never can predict just how far those stories will go to stretch the genre just a bit or take m...

The Lady - Marakand, #2

"Nyctophobia', by Christopher Fowler, is creepy, to say the least, but in a good way. The characters are well-developed and we learn a lot about them throughout the story. Callie, the main character, is easy to identify with. Her lack of co...

Valley of Fires - The Conquered Earth, #3

This is the third book, and possibly the last, in A Conquered Earth series. This series has a very complex world and has multiple story lines going on at the same time so it would be best to start this series at the first book to understand...

Kinslayer - The Lotus War Trilogy, #2

Sleeping Late On Judgement Day - Bobby Dollar, #3

I love the Bobby Dollar series. He's not your average angel by far. He may fumble and mess up (like everyone else) but he also does what he thinks is right. He's not altruistic by far--he has his own motives but generally he helps others al...
