Review – Only the Dead Know Brooklyn by Chris Vola

Review – Only the Dead Know Brooklyn by Chris Vola

I think I was expecting too much from this book. I’m always on the lookout for new vampire stories because, frankly, YA vampires nearly destroyed my love of urban fantasy and I’ve been slowly trying to recover from that. Only the Dead Know Brooklyn puts a spin on vampires in that they’re undead warriors bound to the region in which they […]

Review – Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

Review – Menagerie by Rachel Vincent

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into this book but I can say that I definitely liked it! First of all, it involved a carnival which is an immediate must-read for me. Add to that the elements of mythology woven throughout the world and I’m sold. It was an…. interesting experience reading it, though, because a lot of […]

Mini Review – Brimstone by Cherie Priest

Mini Review – Brimstone by Cherie Priest

I think my expectations for this book didn’t quite line up with the reality. From the synopsis, it almost sounded like some sort of romance (though not quite) but I soon learned that the book alternates points of view between the characters mentioned, Alice and Tomas. Not exactly what I thought and the result was a story that I never fell […]

Review – Grave Dance by Kalayna Price

Review – Grave Dance by Kalayna Price

Well. It sort of improved on the first book. I mean, I don’t go into urban fantasies with very high expectations anymore if I’m being perfectly honest. They tend to be pretty formulaic regardless of the author, the characters, all of it, so I usually know what I’m getting into. So far with the Alex Craft books, there are witches […]

Review – The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

Review – The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

I am so happy this book was better than The Bone Season. That first book really put me off the whole series but I’ve also learned that first books don’t always determine how good a series will be. Thank goodness I read the sequel. The Mime Order starts right after the end of the last book. Paige is back with Jaxon and […]

Review – The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Review – The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Talk about slow going. Prior to jumping into The Bone Season, I heard AMAZING things about it as well as the sequel, The Mime Order. Which is all well and good, and likely one of the only reasons I really stuck it out with this one because I found this book to be quite the struggle. To start, I’m thankful that I […]

Review – The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

Review – The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

I struggled to rate this book, to come up with a coherent enough review that captured my thoughts. The Edge of Everything had moments where I couldn’t stop reading, where I was sucked right into the world alongside the characters. But just as frequently I put it down, whether out of boredom or simply a lack of interest in the story. […]
