Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Well, it was bound to happen at some point or the other. We’re three books into this series (Call of Crows) and 4 books into this universe (Hunting Season, The Unleashing, and The Undoing) so a clunker was bound to happen. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Unyielding. I… Read more »

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

I love Empress Hail: I took the glass. “To vengeance.” [Redacted] raised his glass. “I have seen that look before. I would have pity for those you seek, but for the fact that I know they deserve whatever you have planned. May you find your revenge and may it taste… Read more »

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Legal Wolf’s Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here. I was rather excited about Legal Wolf’s Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I’ve not read a lot of Eve Langlais… Read more »

Review: And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead by Brooke Bolander

Review: And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead by Brooke Bolander

Ok. So, this is the 2nd short I’ve read by Brooke Bolander and the 2nd short that I’ve adored. I *think* that I enjoyed “Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies” a little bit more than “And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead” – but only because “Talons” is… Read more »

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

I loved All Systems Red. The very first chapter let me know that I was really going to enjoy this ride. And I did. I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels… Read more »

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

I really enjoyed Behind the Throne but not for (all) my usual reasons. I was a little skeptical in the beginning – Haili IS a runaway princess and that’s trope-y from beginning to end – but this was a runaway hit for me. I like that Haili isn’t a push… Read more »

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Even though I have now finished She Wolf and Cub, I’m still not sure how I feel about it. It felt like a lot of the book was set in an already established universe. As a reader, I was not given a map to this universe and thus I felt… Read more »

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

I’m not really sure how I feel about Earthrise. I went through several stages of emotions while reading and…they just don’t add up. Earthrise is the first book in the Her Instruments series. I initially started reading because I was drawn to the cover. Several friends on GR have been… Read more »

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

I purchased my copy of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in Sept 2011. This means that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms qualifies for my 2017 The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real! challenge at 5 years, 6 months. I think I’m still trying to parse my feelings toward my read of The Hundred… Read more »

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Love it! Here, Kitty Kitty made me so happy! After spending quite some time being frustrated with book 2 (Go Fetch!), Here Kitty, Kitty more than makes up for the bullshit I dealt with. Here, Kitty Kitty was just pure fun. There is some type of plot it wasn’t as… Read more »
