The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

Kickass heroine, check. Sexy mage, check. Cat-demon minion, check. Finding a book that’s actually worth your time, priceless. Ha, sorry couldn’t resist :) This book was a refreshing change from the last book I read (Dead Until Dark). It was fast paced and magical, and even had a little humor in it. Sabina was pretty awesome. She was tough and sarcastic and didn’t take crap from anyone – sounds like my kind of protag! I found myself picturing Michelle Rodriguez […]

Boy, do I despise getting my hopes up. There was so much hype and talk about this series that I was absolutely sure I’d like it. So, what did my dumb-ass self do? Bought the first NINE books. *bashes face into keyboard*  Aside from the obviously novice prose, there were so many things that were absolutely awful and wrong with this book that I don’t even know where to start.   Brace yourself, this is going to be long. If […]

I. HATE. LOVE. TRIANGLES!!!! Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system. I was thoroughly unimpressed by this book. The plot was good, sure, but it just lacked for me. Even the ending –  with everything falling apart and the death of an important character – felt rushed. Maybe because I was skimming to get to the end and get it over with, who knows. It wasn’t a bad book necessarily, but it wasn’t memorable at all. Her prose […]

Man, this book was intense. Rowen outdid herself in this one. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a read…from shock to anger to despair, I felt like I was right there with Jill at every turn. Rowen really injected you as a reader into the story in a way that surpassed the first book. There were so many times I was engrossed in this book, reading open-mouthed in awe (and exclaiming “oh shit!” out loud).    Declan’s mood swings (caused […]

I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I laid eyes on it, so I had pretty high expectations. And thankfully, it didn’t disappoint. It certainly wasn’t a slow start (which appealed to me, because I get bored easily), with Jill getting stabbed with a syringe and injected with Nightshade, vampire poison. I loved the development between Jill and and her kidnapper, Dec…the way it turns into Stockholm Syndrome also appeals to me because I really like romances […]
