*This is an old review transferred to my new website* Review A friend led me to this book and it caught my interest from the blurb. I don’t buy books often but I bought this in a sheepish impulse. I had several books that I already agreed to review so…

*This is an old review transferred to my new website* Review This novel grabs you nearly from the first page and it drove me nuts that my schedule didn’t allow me to indulge as I wanted to. I am completely and utterly exhausted now as I had only read about…

Book Review: Winter Queen by Amber Argyle @amberargyle

Review Winter Queen is stunning in that it is so raw.  It holds nothing back.  There is blood and death, violence and despair.  It shows people at their best and worst.  Individuals bent on power and sacrifice for others.  It’s not often I see that in a book, and when I…

Review If you’re a geek and a Douglass Adams fan, you’re probably going to love this book.  Every notation I made in the book was some short hand of me laughing.  I made comments about laughing so hard I was in tears or laughing so hard I was wheezing.  The…

Book Review: Deep Echoes by Sean Wallace @seanpwallace

On September 30, 2013, Posted by , In 3 Stars,Book Review, With No Comments

Review Initially, the author jumps around too much.  He doesn’t spend enough time with each character before jumping to the next, introducing too many too quickly, at times, even fracturing the world he’s trying to generate by exposing too many facets all at once.  It frequently takes longer than one…

Book Review: Empath by Becca Campbell @beccajcampbell

Review I was intrigued by the concept for this novel, especially since it dips so close to my own problems.  I loved how she portrayed an empath, her struggles and the intricacy of her powers.  Campbell easily portrays both the highs and lows, the good and the bad, of each…

Book Review and Excerpt: Miranda’s Mate by Ann Gimpel @anngimpel

Review I really like these types of stories, stories where both parties want the same thing, but neither has the guts to reach for it.  And I felt like this one was done beautifully.  There tends to be a thin line between getting that type of storyline right, and royally…

Book Review: Operation Earth by Maria Hammarblad @mariahammarblad

On August 15, 2013, Posted by , In 5 Stars,Book Review, With No Comments

Review The book starts out pretty well.  I think it could have started out better.  It seemed to almost portray the overtaking of earth through the eyes of someone in shock.  No real fear, panic or driving to action.  The main character is very level headed, which has its good…

Book Review: Voracious by Mia Darien @miadarien

Review This book was more serious than the first book in the series, Cameron’s Law. Darker, but still funny in places.  It had a poetry to it I really liked.  A flow and flair that appealed to me. I liked D, though I got a bit frustrated with not knowing his…

Book Review: Cameron’s Law by Mia Darien @miadarien

Review The book started out well.  I loved Sadie right from the very beginning.  The sarcasm, the snark.  Those are always traits I treasure in a character.  The book frequently had me laughing, or just the slightest of smiles at little comments and quirks. Some of the people reviewing commented…
