Review: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs

Anthology Review: Shifting Shadows – Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega #0.5) by Patricia Briggs

OK. Not gonna lie, I can’t remember when I grabbed Shifting Shadows at all. It was sometime during my Mercy Thompson spree. I bought a shitton of Mercy Thompson books…and then I stopped reading at book three. I didn’t dislike Mercy (like her a lot, actually) but I got distracted… Read more »

Review: Fate’s Edge (The Edge #3) by Ilona Andrews

Review: Fate’s Edge (The Edge #3) by Ilona Andrews

I really don’t know what to say about Fate’s Edge. I guess I can start by saying that the very dark turn that The Edge series took in Bayou Moon has continued with Fate’s Edge (though I feel that Bayou Moon is the darker of the two books). Fate’s Edge… Read more »
