First off, that chick on the cover is way to thin….she needs a hamburger and a large milk shake b/c I’m pretty sure she has a Barbie waistline and that just ain’t cool. Having said that she looks pretty fierce and they did a decent job matching the girl to the book….though later in the book. You’ll understand in a minute, hold on.

Tina is your average woman with a limp, weird teeth and mousey brown hair who no one ever notices. She is working toward a law degree she’ll never get because of a sket

Shelves: urban-fantasy
1.5 Stars

Recommendation : Do you really want me to go there? Nope, I did not think so.

This cover screams Kickass Heroine, so I quickly snatched up an ARC. There really is nothing like a great Kickass Heroine especially if there is a Hunky Hero to go with her.

Sadly, I am here to report that my expectations were shattered. I really wanted this one to succeed for me, but it just did not.

I can sum this book up with one phrase: A Series of Unfortunate Events!

Tina Clancy is a 26 year-old law student with a crippled leg who lives near the Zone in Baltimore, an area affected by a chemical spill many years ago. She’s just a week away from taking her final exams and works in the Zone collecting deposits from different businesses that belong to Andre Legrande, making one bank run for him every day. The Zone is an area most people stay away from, except for those who can’t afford to leave. At least that’s Tina’s belief. And she likes living her life under ...more

“Other people just told their boyfriends to go to hell and could take back the words and make up. Me, I actually had to send mine there.”
Boyfriend from Hell by Jamie Quaid is an entertaining read. Set in the slums of Baltimore in an environmentally damaged area called The Zone, Boyfriend from Hell has a different take on environmental pollution. The Zone is an area where electronics don’t work; buildings have a blue glow at night (without electricity) and inanimate objects such as sta

This book is bonkers in quite a unique way :D

First of all there are no your average monsters, no vamps or werewolves, no magic... Instead there is a chemical spill once upon a time, and a certain area called The Zone is quarantined and forgotten.

Strange things are happening in the Zone, statues stalk you and posters on the walls have a mind of their own, and if you really really want something, Zone will grant you your wish. Literally. So be careful what you wish for if you've lived in the Zone
Review originally posted here:

I’m always on the lookout for new urban fantasy books. It’s one of my favorite genres, with some of my favorite authors. While a lot of people have criticised the cover of the first Saturn’s Daughter book, it actually caught my eye. Not just the uncomfortable positioning of the woman’s body, but the fact that she is holding a tire iron next to a Harley, instead of a sword or gun in some faraway land. It’s something I’d never

Mon avis en Français

My English review

As soon as I saw the cover of this new novel I knew that I absolutely had to read it. And after this synopsis, it did not take long for me to jump on this little gem. Well I must say that I am always ready for a good urban fantasy book, and I really liked this one. I loved the characters, I loved the story, what more can I ask for?

Clency Tina is a young woman who works in the Zone, this place that most people avoid. Well, a lot of strange things happen t

Boyfriend from Hell by Jamie Quaid

Do you think you would like to live your life knowing that, if you wished someone to go to Hell hard enough, they would really go? Maybe you would like to dispense justice in its more violent form. Well maybe if you lived some of your life in the section of radioactive Baltimore known as the Zone, you might be able to. But really… how would you feel if you saw your no-good boyfriend sitting behind the wheel of your car burning to death because you wished him to

This is a very quirky, hard edged novel. I was quite intrigued with this book but I never felt entirely comfortable and that could have been the intention of Ms Quaid. Nothing is as it seems at first glance in the Zone.

Tina Clancy's boyfriend Max has been flaking off lately and when he comes screaming down the hill straight at Clancy in her car, she thinks he is trying to kill her. She damns him to hell and that's where he ends up.

The book is set in Baltimore's radio-active Zone, which reminds
