Tempest Rising (Jane True, #1)

Horror, Romance, Mystery, Urban Fantasy? None of those really, though it falls under the UF genre.

1.5 stars

Oh boy, where to begin.... I've enjoyed Heather Graham's books in the past as the fun brain candy they can be, sadly this wasn't one of them.

Angel: After the Fall, Volume 2: First Night

Redemption (Angel: Season 1, #4)

Enh. The plot sounded good, and it could have, but it just didn't quite get there for me. And I know Angel is over 250-years-old, but we don't always ...more

Charmed & Dangerous (Bronwyn the Witch, #1)

This is probably more of a 3.5 star book, mainly due to the slow start that didn't build up until close to the halfway point. I almost stopped reading ...more
