Review: Clean Sweep (The Innkeeper Chronicles #1) by Ilona Andrews

I loved this book! Loved it! I first read this book a while ago. It’s available – in its organic form – as a serial on the Andrews’ website. I knew what to expect but boy was I surprised! I hate squeeing. I swear, it’s rather undignified. But there’s really… Read more »

Review: Silver May Tarnish (Witch World #32: High Hallack Cycle #10) by Andre Norton & Lyn McConchie

This isn’t going to be the best review ever. I’ve read the book too many times. I love this book and this series too much. This book is several books into the Witch World series but it is a stand alone. While it can be read without prior knowledge of… Read more »

Review: The Warded Man (Demon Cycle #1) by Peter V. Brett *spoilers*

So, I have sat on this review for…forever. All of my friends love this book. I actually enjoyed this book. But it gave me nightmares. Not from the subject matter – as would be expected – but from one little scene and the reactions of the character that totally ruined… Read more »

Review: On the Edge (The Edge #1) by Ilona Andrews

Review: On the Edge (The Edge #1) by Ilona Andrews
