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

So far I am LOVING the Alpha and Omega series! I love, love, LOVE Anna and I still like Charles. I do have to say that Charles’ father sound much more interesting that Charles right now…but I digress. The worldbuilding is pretty thorough but since it exists in an already… Read more »

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 »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Love is the Plan the Plan is Death by James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon) -Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Case of the Passionless Bees by Rhonda Eikamp (Narrated by Jonathan L. Howard)

Well color me surprised! I was NOT expecting an SF Sherlock Holmes mystery (make that Gearlock Holmes) so when the narrator started speaking and I heard a British male voice, I was a bit surprised. It does work quite well, however. Jonathan L. Howard really nailed the mechanical/human-ish voice for… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Walking Awake by N.K. Jemisin (Narrated by Bahni Turpin)

Wooooooow! Seriously. WOW. I own quite a few books written by N.K. Jemisin – and I’ve not read a single one. Why? Because I am strange that way, that’s why. I buy books and I dance around like an ant with anticipation…but once I GET the book…six in one hand,… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Word Shaped Like Bones by Kris Millering (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Note: The majority of the reviews for Women Destroy Science Fiction! is of the audio book. I did buy a copy of the print edition because the audio doesn’t include the Author Spotlights, the novel excerpt, the non-fiction, the personal essays and the illustrations. All reviews of those items come… Read more »

Review: Blaze (Dark in You #2) by Suzanne Wright *very light spoilers*

I enjoyed the crap out of Blaze, lol. I really don’t have a lot to say about this one – it was read during a vacation and I NEVER take good notes on vaca. And that bothers me not one bit. 😀 So. Blaze. I skipped like 90% of the… Read more »
