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 don’t really have much to say about this book since I liked it. I have absolutely nothing to complain about as far as prose goes (which is what makes long book reviews for me…spending time complaining). The first line of this book is “Whoever said dying was easy was full of crap,” so just with the very first sentence I was hooked. The beginning was interesting and attention-grabbing, giving you a glimpse at dying and the afterlife through Patrick’s eyes. […]

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 […]
