*Please Note: By the Sword is a stand alone book that can be read out of the Valdemar Universe publication order. By the Sword IS #9 in the Valdemar universe, however, so there is a great deal of history and definitions that are from previous works in series universe. How… Read more »

Review: All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka

Review: All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka

I decided to read All You Need Is Kill after I watched Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise. I really enjoyed Edge of Tomorrow and wanted to see what the source material was like. Well, they changed A LOT. I know they always do but the changes are pretty interesting… Read more »

Review: Fighting Destiny (The Fae Chronicles #1) by Amelia Hutchins

WOW. Fighting Destiny is WTFery in its finest! I don’t know where to start. Honestly, I’m trying my best to forget everything I read because WTF, Batman!

Review: Silver Shark (Kinsmen #2) by Ilona Andrews

This right here. I loved this. LOVED. I’m not sure what I was expecting when I started Silver Shark. I’d just finished reading Silent Blade and I *guess* I was expecting it to be more like Silent Blade. Silver Shark both is and is not like Silent Blade. The books… Read more »

Review: Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews

Review: Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews

Another good one from the Andrews! I’m such a fan. I’ve heard of Silent Blade (and the Kinsmen series) before but I often get caught up in the more recent work released by Ilona Andrews. I ended up finally getting to Kinsmen deep in an Ilona Andrews glomming: I’d read… Read more »
