Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways. I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I read The Zero Stone, I… Read more »

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 »

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton *spoilers*

Bane: [beyn] noun 1. death; destruction; ruin. 2. Obsolete. that which causes death or destroys life I love this book. It’s weird and dreamy and at some points really hard to understand (and follow). I’ve read Zarsthor’s Bane many, many times now. I can honestly say that I feel that… Read more »

Review: Resenting the Hero (Hero #1) by Moira J. Moore

Review: Resenting the Hero (Hero #1) by Moira J. Moore

Resenting the Hero in an incredibly interesting book. It’s pretty light and fluffy while still being meaningful, well written and fun. I think Resenting the Hero is an excellent book for a case of book hangover and/or a need of a palate cleasner. The world-building in the Hero series is… 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 »

Review: Bayou Moon (The Edge #2) by Ilona Andrews

I’m in the midst of an Ilona Andrews glom so I decided that this would be a great time to try and get through Bayou Moon. To date, Bayou Moon is the only Ilona Andrews book that I stopped reading and never picked back up. How?! WHY?! I’m sure those… Read more »

Review: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews *light spoilers*

I’m a huge Ilona Andrews fangurl. I blame Ala for this, lol. Ala kept saying how good Kate Daniels was and how much he missed Kate when he finished the series, etc. While I tried to stay away, Ala enjoyed it so much that I picked Magic Bites up. This… Read more »
