OK, this was a romance with a bit of magic, the two main characters were great and the pursuit of love was done extremely well. OK, so much for the good stuff. the fact that Preston is pretty clueless about women in general becomes painfully obvious...more

I would usually go through and rate each of these fine novels individually but the review would get much too lengthy and you can research each of these books for yourself if you wish BUT I can say that ALL of these books are pretty much 4.5-5 Star re...more

This was a great action novel, it started almost from page 1 and hardly let up for the whole novel.

A few of the reasons it is not 5 Stars are:

1. Almost total action and hardly any real character interaction other than "How we gonna get outta here" ty...more

I have enjoyed each of these Blood Prince novels, they tell a great story and always have a great ending, usually unexpected.

This one I was a bit confused about how this was gonna work but should have remembered these books are loosely based on fairy...more

Where to start? Cody was murdered and now he is an angel who is returned to Earth to solve his own murder for reasons that become clearer as the book moves forward.

I found it to be simplistic in places and downright cheesy in places but overall I fou...more

Let me start this review by saying that my reading started when I was young with comic books. My next move forward was with Hardy Boy type mystery for kids; however, my introduction to "adult" reading was Ian Fleming and James Bond. I read all the Ja...more

While this may not be what many expected after Cat & Bones, this is a YA novel, there is no sex, there is one scene where she bares her breasts, therefore you really cannot compare it to full adult novels.

While I may be concerned a bit on Jeanien...more

Kristen Callihan seems to excel at bringing together couples who really don’t like each other at the start of these novels in the Darkest London series (which seems to get a bit darker as this series progresses).

William Thorn and Holly Evernight are...more

Kresley Cole
“Have you ever fought an opponent you had no defense against? Like a fire breather or an acid spitter?"
"Once I faced a female with diamond skin," Nix said breathlessly. "I was transfixed - even as she was choking the life out of me."
"No, I saw that character on X-Men. I just wanted to commiserate. Alas, I have no weaknesses.”
Kresley Cole, Pleasure of a Dark Prince

Ilona Andrews
“Yes. What is it, guilt, revenge, love, what?”
I swallowed. “I live alone.”
"And your point is?”
"You have the Pack. You’re surrounded by people who would fall over themselves for the pleasure of your company. I have no one. My parents are dead, my entire family is gone. I have no friends. Except Jim, and that’s more of a working relationship than anything else. I have no lover. I can’t even have a pet, because I’m not at the house often enough to keep it from starving. When I come crawling home, bleeding and filthy and exhausted, the house is dark and empty. Nobody keeps the porch light on for me. Nobody hugs me and says, ‘Hey, I’m glad you made it. I’m glad you’re okay. I was worried.’ Nobody cares if I live or die. Nobody makes me coffee, nobody holds me before I go to bed, nobody fixes my medicine when I’m sick. I’m by myself.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Burns

Faith Hunter
“My brother has absolutely no sense of self-preservation or survival instinct,” Eli said. “He has no idea we’re out here. We could be silver-eating, flesh-regenerating, vampire zombies, and when we busted through the door to eat his brilliant brain, he’d look up and say, ‘Huh?”
Faith Hunter, Blood Trade

C.E. Murphy
“You went back in time,” he repeated, “and you expect his cell phone to work?”
“Well, no, I just, I mean, I came back and he hasn’t! Shouldn’t he have?”
Morrison, very steadily, said, “Were you together?”
“No! I just said he went to fight the Morrigan!”
“I see.” There was a pause. “The man is seventy-four years old, Joanie. He can take care of himself. If you were,” a great and patient pause filled the line before he went on, “time traveling. If you were time traveling and got separated, then I can’t think of any reason he would necessarily come back to the present at the same time you did.”
“Except I was the focal point, it was my fault, it --!”
“Joanne. Siobhan. Siobhan Grainne MacNamarra Walkingstick.”
I didn’t think anybody had ever said my name like that before. I gulped down a hysterical sob and whispered, “Yeah?”
Morrison, with gentle emphasis, said, “I love you. Now pull yourself together and go find the bad guy,” and hung up.”
C.E. Murphy, Raven Calls
