Review: Daring

I’m not really sure how I feel about this addition to the series. I loved the first book completely, but this one is so different, it almost feels like it belongs to another series. The story is still told from John’s point of view, and he’s still a snarky sarcastic werewolf former-Knight, but that’s pretty much all this book has in common with the first. There is a whole new set of characters, and John spends most of the book dealing with werewolves, and in particular, his own werewolf. I think this werewolf focus may be the source as my […]

Review: Kitty Goes to Washington

In a refreshing twist on the usual super confident alpha heroine featured in most urban fantasy series, Kitty Norville is not any of those things yet. She wants to be, kind of, but is more of a wary, submissive shifter. This book saw a lot of growth in Kitty towards that confident personality. When she goes to Washington to testify at a Senate hearing, things seem to happening, good and bad, and just keep escalating. She has run ins with the local vampires, shifters, and even the government agency that is focus of the Senate hearing. With all that action, […]

Review: Dead Spots

This was an exciting story featuring a unique paranormal skill I’ve never heard of. Scarlett is a null, which means she basically cancels out paranormal abilities within her personal bubble of space. With this ability, Scarlett is a cleaner, getting rid of paranormal-related messes so regular humans and cops don’t find them. When a cleaning goes bad, trouble ensues. Scarlett was a great character. She’s smart and logical and very careful with her life. She’s suffered a lot of tragedy, and is basically just going through the motions of living when the story starts. Getting thrown into a murder investigation […]

Review: Night Shift

It took me a while to get into this book, but once I did, I was hooked. Jill is a hunter who polices the paranormal beings in her city, with the help of magical powers granted to her through an agreement with one of the bad guys. It’s a complex situation that took me a while to understand since it’s never explained very easily. The focus of this book is split between the case Jill is currently working on, and Jill herself. Jill is suffering from a lot of grief, and self-doubts stemming from the death of her teacher less […]

Review: The God Killers

This was an action filled urban fantasy story featuring a kick-butt heroine. Ivory is strong and stubborn, and doesn’t let anyone push her around, not vampires, werewolves or CIA operatives. She is more than just a strong, pretty face. Her character is quite well developed with flaws and weaknesses, which makes it easier to root for her. The world building was quite extensive. Supernatural creatures of all sorts appear in the story, with an intricate and complex history to explain their existence and how most humans don’t know about them. The history got a bit confusing when all the mythology […]

Review: Charming

Commence fangirling in 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Awesomely terrific. This book had everything I love in an adult paranormal story. A hot main character who is snarky and sarcastic and oh so amusing. Lots of action. A lusty attraction that manages to stay clean, even while being very passionate. Did I mention the snarky sarcasm? This story set up an incredibly detailed, and believable, backstory about why paranormal creatures can be around in the modern world without being detected. The Pax Arcana is a detailed set of rules and magic that makes most humans unaware of the paranormal. It’s […]

Review: Kitty and the Midnight Hour

I feel like I’m one of the last people to start this series. But I’ve started, and hope to get all the way through. The first book is a great beginning. Kitty is a unique character in that she isn’t an alpha werewolf, she’s is most decidedly at the bottom of the pack. She does show considerable growth throughout the story, however doesn’t “magically” or unrealistically become an alpha overnight. This book gave me a unique look at werewolf packs. There is an enormous amount of politics within the pack. There is also a lot of behaviour that is uncomfortable. […]
