Death of Darkness by Dianne Duvall
Dianne Duvall never disappoints. We wanted an earth-shaking novel for our most beloved character and she has certainly delivered on all the action, suspense and romance we have come to expect.

Honestly, this book would have been rated higher if it ended at 65% before the first of a zillion epilogues started. In the never-ending epilogues it just got weird. Too many unbelievable scenarios left me shaking my h" Read more of this review »

I know. Can't wait.

Nicole Cold Days now has cover art and a release date!!!

Nicole Found the discussion about 1-star reviews posted by people who hadn't read the book, but my eyes glazed over after a dozen-or-so posts. It may not be fair or kind, but jerks are allowed to have free speech.

Sassy Smut Thanks for the Goodreads friendship add. I look forward to comparing books and reviews.
